DRPT. OF HISTORY ft A^CHIVL'S m-;s :.:oi,\K3 19, IO;VA VOLUME 42, NO. 27 thru the week with the editor Its like Lois Davis said, "All I want for Christmas is December 26th." ttw When in her store Monday we asked her if she got it and she reported that it arrived "right on schedule." ttw Occasionally, we call upon our neighbors in the presidential mansion for help in entertaining our friends or out-of-town guests thru the medium of "Jack Stories." This was the case a week ago Monday evening when, after dinner, we all adjourned to the Garbees to listen. ttw Returning to our home one of the people, a senior in high school, reported, "He sure doesn't act like a college president. He just seems like one of us." ttw And that's a real compliment to anyone. Remeber the words "to walk with kings nor lose the common touch." ttw Then there's Ronnie (whom I've now nicknamed Russell) Kockcr who sent me a statement from the bank, using an envelo'pc and a 2 cent stamp to let me know my morning deposit was Ic less. ttw Want to clarify here. That Connie Becker who won the girls bike in the Rexall contest was not BeckNer, but Becker. She is the daughter of Don Becker, who farms southeast of Fayctte, ttw Buck Maxson got a new red roadster for Christmas. ttw Gelling news is always a bit of a problem. With such a small staff we depend upon a lot of townspeople to call or remind us. We were happy at the response. ttw So, when you have news. Call 11. ttw Ma Chumbley-Frilz has decided to keep her Irish color by calling herself Mrs. O'Fritz. Mildred Walker advised Harley to "make a German out of her." ttw And here's a poem 'the editor found lying on a table in a local place of business and, incidentally, copied and printed without permission. ttw In days gone by as I planted a money tree, I heard it would grow tremendously. My Fayette neighbors the good soil had, So I dizzily settled for some of the bad. Each year they'd have a bumper crop, But, alack, ipoor me, I had not, When it was needed, it rained on the rich, While I next door had my back to the ditch. Don't think I didn't put up a fight, For we all know the Irish and God are right. So, I left the money for those who are rich, And tried the joy of living again, to the last ditch. Returned in time to salvage my crop, Found I'd had fun my rich neighbors had not. Here's a leaf from that wizened old money tree. With all my love, dear girl, to thee. ttw That was written to accompany a Christmas gift. So a parting thought from the Good Book — the rain falls on the just and the unjust. ttw Happy New Year. - -Don ALLAN KING'S VISIT HERE (Mr. and Mrs. Allan King of Mariposa, California have been visiting friends in Fayette this last week.
