Thanksgiving in Italy for cx-Algona girl Roberta Schwendemann, 1961 Algona high school grid' Uate, is attending the Acid* emy of-Fine Arts at Florence, Italy, and recently wrote her mother, Mrs. Kay Isaacson, Fort Dodge, about the preparations and eating of a "Real American Thanksgiving Din' ner" far away from home. She told about going to the super market, where she and her friends bought sweet potatoes, a yellow table cloth, orange napkins, celery, carrots, pickles, corn on the cob (frozen from the U.S.A.), cranberry preserves (from Germ* any), soft dinner rolls, rice, curry powder, yellow and orange candles, then on to a flower shop for yellow roses, orange mums and white daisies, and to a "pouleria" for a 12 pound bird (called turkey). The bird had his tail feathers used in the flower arrangement. He had head and feet intact, Roberta wrote, but the "nice lady" plucked him for us, thank goodness!" She wrote of the food prep- eration and the improvised table which they put together. One'of the guests carved the turkey, and after watching five Italian boys, pre-med students at the University, mutilate five ears of American corn, Roberta will never again feel awkward eating Italian spaghetti.
