5—ALGONA (Iowa) ADVANCE MONDAY, JAN 31, 1966 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••A "INK in my VEINS" BY MARIAN INMAN •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••a* Shades of the past. How many times the size of the new trimline telephone were the old wall phones. My little beauty in a soft shade of pink to match my bedroom decor hangs right beside my bed. If I should need to call the children because of illness, I do not even need to make the effort to.turn on a light. Just reach for my trimline and the lighted dial is there to help trie and the weight is as nothing in the palm of one's hand. Not that I am waiting to be sick or that I have waited for I have used my trimline and recline on my bed like a teenager, as I talk. Telephones have come a long way and Northwestern Bell goes right on researching so who knows what they'll come up with next I madt and gave lor Christmas gifts, 42 of the lovely egg shell fantasies and now I am making some for Easter and birthday gifts. My good friend Charlotte Habeger gave me three duck eggs which is a right size for some .of the shadow boxes and also gave me four soft brown colored hen eggs in their natural state. If you. have not seen'these fantasies you can't know how exquisite they really are: Come to see me some time. I enjoy company. Well, give me a ring for I do go a great deal, school, etc., but I'll welcome you when we make a date. I wish I had had Margaret Durant's beautiful poem to share with you during the Christmas season, but I am sure she sent it to her friends for a Christmas qift and it was especially for them. However perhaps another year she will allow us to use it. The age old Christmas story told so beautifully in her talented way. Margaret, I appreciate the privilege of reading it and having a copy for my own. Thank you 'again. I still have quite a list of new year letters to write but I keep at it and enjoy every one I write. This is one of my\ resolutions and I hope I do not let myself down. Mrs. E. C. McMahon loaned me a book. "The Romance With A Lady in White and Blue,' written by the Mclntosh family of Luverne, Minnesota. It is a delightful journal of interesting events and of people they met on their round the world trip in 1963. Father, Mother and daughter each have . a part, collaborating with exerpts from their column, 'Chaff written on this journey and the many other travels they have made: They write of homey everyday things, not even pretending to be "experts" on any country or any situation. It is interesting reading, fun to open the book just anywhere - and get enthralled in the delightful stories they tell and their special manner of telling them. I hope that I meet this family some time. When you are reading this column, I'll be on my way tp PCS Moines for the executive ;board meeting of the Iowa Tuberculosis Association and also a meeting of the organization and Structure committee of .this group who are giving themselves a good look with the aim to improve themselves to give better service more efficiently. I worked some on my Lincoln Penny collection this week. Went through some 700 pennies that I have set aside until I had time to look them over. This is an interesting hob; by and I plan to get my grandson, godson, Thomas Inman interested in this for his birthday in April.. ! ,';;'; Before: yffu;change jobs •'or tqwns,;-tb bette^ yourjgondir. tipn,; suppose you try changing mental attitude, habits and associates, then go to work, and work harder than you have ever \vprked before. If these changes fail to bring about the de- gire'S' results, you may be sure that you would have been a failure in any other town, and at any other job you might have" tackled. - , "Do as best you can. that which you are supposed to" . do, and soon you will havn something better to do." '. . . : It is really astonishing the amount of will-power some .men possess. They can stand there an'd say that' they could quit smoking if they wanted to do so, then light another eigar- .'ette demonstrating their remarkable will-power over the quitting idea. '.,".'•'. On the anniversary of the launching of the first U. S. ' satellite, January 31, 1956, Space Age youngsters may wish to read some of the numerous books about space. Ask your librarian to suggest some of the many books on this subject. Visit your library, make friend with your librarian. She is a very special and interesting friend to know. These cold winter evenings are times for families to read, to play and to pray together. Don't waste a precious moment of this special time of your life when your family are all under the home roof. Love and live and laugh together. Houses are made of brick and stone, homes are made of love alone.

Tuberculosis is quite prevelant. If a child lives through the first year his chan ces of survival are good. A small percentage of the children have an opportunity for. education beyond the fifth, or 'sixth grade. School is held for half a day under crowded conditions. Attendance is not compulsory so there is no need for a truancy officer. War has become a way of life as there has been some for 20 years. The French were driven out in 1954 and the current conflict started in earnest in 1961. Their wants and needs are like ours and the majority want to be left alone. They want their own home, a small piece of ground on which to grow rice and raise a pig and some chickens, and space for their children who average five to a family. i The next assignment for Major Crapser is in Attchofage, Alaska with the Hercules Missile Air Defense System.
