ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCED Mr. and Mrs. Joe Wiegand Jr., of Oakville, Iowa, announce the engagement of their daughter Mary Jo to Galen Metzyer, son of Mr- and Mrs. Arnold Metzger of Whittemore, She is a 19Q7 graduate of the Mediapolis high school and is employed at the Burlington, Iowa hospital. Hi is a 1963 graduate of Algona high school and is farming. The wedding is Dec. 2. in 1924 they saw a movie in the old Call Opera House. During intermissions,, Mrs. Auner would always lean, back and look up into a little dome, the inside pf a cupola that decorated ' the theater roof. She liked to watch the Hashes of brilliance and color that the house lights 'Struck off 120 prisms that 'hung like crystal fringe inside the dome. The prisms had been hanging up there since 1892 when Ambrose A. Call built the opera house where many lowans first saw such players as the Ber- rymores. By the time Frances Auner was going to the opera house, it was a movie theater owned by Mr. and Mrs. N. C. Rice. In 1929, talking pictures took over the movie industry and the theater had to be remodeled. To improve the acoustics, the dome had to go. Mrs. Auner told Mrs. Rice she would love to have those prisms and Mrs. Rice agreed to give her half and she would keep half. . . and she did. Mrs. Auner carefully packed her 60 crystal pendants in an old hat box where they were stored for 27 years. Then last year (1956) when the Auners- residents of Des Moines since 1931 took one of the fabulous telnith floor apart mentfi in the new Glass House. Mrs. Auner got out the old hat box and had her prisms made into a sparkling chandelier. Now the 65 yeai; old pendants that hung from the ceiling of an opera house from 1892 to 1929 and spent the next three decades in a hat box, light a charming dressing room at 3600 Grand. (And what became of Mrs. Rice's half of the prisms? They were lost in 1938 when the theater and the penthouse in which the Rice's lived above the theater burned to the ground and all of Mrs. Rice's possessions were destroyed.) Clarence J. Metiger, Jr., and Robert F. Mettgw, sons of Mr. *nd Mrs. Clarence MeUger, ST., are now itttkrt ed at Oppama, Japan, 80 miles south of Toyko. Both brothers are in the Navy, October 7 A IS, 1*47 ' Pictured In the October 7 issue of the Advance was Mrs. WHliam Boldridge, 70, who was superintendent of the Presbyterian Sunday school at the farming village of Irvington. Mrs. Boldridge was quoted as saying "If every community would treat its race problem as does Irvington there would be no 'Negro question' to solve." When Mrs. Boldridge was 11 years old her mother was burned to death. She was raised by a white family, Mr. and Mrs. Windsor, in Lexington, Mo. Mn. Windsor was determined that the frail little colored girl should have as good an education as possible. She graduated from the Lexington high school and later taught three years in a first grade room for Negro children. She married in 1902 and came to Iowa as a bride. For a few years the couple <lived in Britt. Thirty seven years ago they moved to Irvington and farmed there till retirement five years ago. Mrs. Boldridge talks intelligently about the Negro and his problems. "People are good to her." Mrs. Boldridge says and they treat her family with consideration and good will. Asked how she manages to get along so well with them, she said, "We try to live right, do right and, treat folks right. We've always tried to be good neighbors, .if you're right you'll get along." Mr. and Mrs. Boldridge have raised a family of four children: Mrs. Bernice iMCLauren of Portland, Ore.; Mrs. Alberta Grace, Des Moines; Mrs. Blnora McElroy of Chicago and the only son, William who is married and farms southwest of Algona.

Garfield had a telescope and a thermometer which he tied to a string and pulled into the heavy foliage of an apple tree to get correct temperature reading. Soon after that Mr. Nolte contrived to get a recording thermometer of his own which he has kept for more than 40 years, As official observer his equip, ment is standard, a mercury thermometer for maximum recordings and an alcohol instrument for minimum reading*.
