4-Aloono (lo.) Upper Dei Moinet Thursdey, Feb. 23, Feb. 15 - Well, Valentine's Day is over and a nice one it was, weather-wise, as well as a meeting of Republican Woaea at the new Good Samaritan Home. We heard the program here via Inter-corn. Appropriate refreshments were served at both homes before the program, thea several women called here, and of course I enjoyed seeing them. Our noon trays were very attractive too - a very good menu, favors from the Junior Auxiliary of Titoaka, Valentine cards with a heart-shaped, red foil-covered piece of candy, and our dessert was red jello in heart shape topped with whipped cream. Helen Hansea gave me & Valentine, as did Cecelia Rutledge and toner's was attached a stick of gum/Another Valentine was cinnamon rolls from Marg Dahl and a card suggesting "Lefs Nestle" and signed with x-x-x's from Gene Barry. We get a lot of fun talking about our "crushes". Gene U so suave and handsome, but "Marg has transferred her "affection" to Robert Stack, which leaves me with a clear field. What a good laugh we'd hare if we could meet them In person. We might be greatly dsillusioaed, so we'll just have fun with our exaggerated admiration. And I wonder what they'd think of us? Better not to know, I guess I I forgot to mention the cute favors on our supper trays. Two red gumdrops fastened together with sarauwrap, aad a sail attached to a toothpick and "Be My Valentine", written in red Ink on the sail I don't know who gave them. Then a group of girls, Scouts, I assume, went through the halls singing appropriate songs. A Utter from Esther Charlotte Smith who teaches at Charles City, had a Valentine look though written the 18th. She had typed It with a red ribbon. It was Charlotte's late father who drove Swea City's five volunteers to Algona to leave for Camp Dodge during WW I, those being Robert A. Haglund, dec- . .by Evelyn minim This is my farewell to you "Grace''. I wish you were look- Ing over my shoulder to read what I have told you from time to time. I am glad I told you that you were a gallant lady; glad I told you how I enjoyed your witty column; glad I told you I didn't see how you could do so many things so well. \Ve will never write that book we were to do together - we fiicte't ever have a name for it, ncr lor that matter, no topic, but it was to be a "best seller" this phantoia book we laughed about. We will miss you. There will never be another "Grace". My prayers for you were aat answered the way I wanted tiieni, but you must have fullfUled /-our destiny and now, in g-oiden letters beside your aaae CEL be written "Mission Finished." Goi bless you. eased; Charles Hart, painter and decorator, present whereabouts unknown; Albert Carlson; John Sundoon, young Norwegian - American mechanic and blacksmith who had served in the army in Norway; Ralph Smith, uncle of Charlotte, deceased. Incidentally, she is sendinc my item to Ms widow in San Angelo, Tet. His nieces and nephews in the area are Hugh Slack, Mrs. C-eorge Kain, Mrs. Paul Hilbert, Wayne Smitl and Leona and David A. Ssitt.

I £s always glad to get letters Irpr; nr cousin, Gayle Hea- fierEoi KierulK of Pomona, and her reports on liale Katie's progress. One bit of other news was that they are moving. Sae iicb't say vaere, whether another house in Ponoaa or to Los Angeles, where it would aeaa less time speat ia travel for Herbert. . Ke will be la Washington, D.C. this week ia conference of economists and will also be setting up contacts ia ' fie Department of Commerce.

After six years in tae Army Reserves, he has received his discharge and as Gayle puts it, "Kow Uncle Sam can't grab Mm whenever he might want to." » * * Thaak you, Minnie Long, for your invitation, but I don't think I'll be able to make It to the Lodl Art Club. Power to you Minnie! You far surpass me in pepl * * * Some time ago, I mentioned Sara Clark and her odd married name . She says the story behind It is that when her husband Harold's grandfather came to this country his name was Kviste. He settled near Slayton, Minn., and' there It was found there was another family by the same name. To avoid confusion grandpa Hans decided to change It to Qvisle. V Just didn't go with Q so they changed it to U. Later the children decided to add a Y so today it is QUISLEY. Few of their family are in the United States. Most are still in Norway. Harold is the only one In the U.S. as his uncles never married. So everyone was happy when Harold and Sara had a son David to carry on the name especially grandpa Qulsley. » » * Ann Clark Is the proud possessor of a genuine Jade necklace sent to her by her son John who Is In service In San Diego, Calif. I told her to drop by some day I'd like to see it. 1 can't tell a real pearl from a phony, but you can't fool me on diamonds. I have a friend whose son was in service in the second Too rushed to chat? You need a Kitchen Helperphone You get more done when you have a handy, helpful Trimline* extension phone in your kitchen. So pretty-practical, too. The lighted dial comes to you! TO ORDER, call the telephone business office or ask your telephone man. Northwestern Bell war anci while In Japuc lie picked up a black pearl at B shop ant! the price was very reasonable. A fellow buddy wanted to buy it, but this lad said, "No, I'm taking It home to my mother. The mounting is only silver, but I fancy the rinp and I believe ahe'fl like it." The buddy made another offer of SIB dollars, 1 believe it was-acyhoV an amount quite E bit more than this lad paid ior it. He still refused to sell, and believe it or not, when the pearl was appraised by E reputable firm, it was estimated to be worth SHOD. Not knowing petrlE, Td probably been Joal enough to take the email sum offered. The donor war ae astonished ae hie parentc. My 'cousin Melvin Henderson WEB a red head, likewise his daughter Gayle and her little Katie, two of hit aunts were redheads, on the Cady side my grandfather had a redheaded sister, my dad had red hair, so did I. Gerald Cady paused hie red hair on to hie daughter Jean, but some of us darkened as my dad, Gerald and .lean did. Gayle wrote she had read red heads are a vanishing group but I called the Louis Reillys and of the 17 children, 11 are red heads, and I MEAN red heads! Well, long say the henna last for those who want to be Titian* - or are already. I've alweyi been told ay father wanted the stork to bring him a red haired daughter, and "Doc" obliged. Raring tae wish granted, 1 suspect my parenti figured leave wtll- eoough along - be satisfied with ONE chick - so that was that. Father Schumacher of St. Joe was here the other evening to see Casper Thilges who has not been as well as usual. He stopped in to chat with me, was astonished that I am the Evelyn of Tidbits and said, "How in the world do you get your material? I read it all the time and enjoy it, but didn't know it was written by someone in the home." I said, "Oh, it just sort of throws itself together." * * » Mrs. Clyde Snere is a resident at the new home and two women were here from Spencer Sunday to see her. 3 directed them to the new home and when they said they were from Spencer I asked if they knew the Sonder- gaards. They said, "Yes, indeed. They are very good friends." So I sent greetings to Jens. Caroline died several months ago. And "Jlggs", the mayor, was recently married. I can't remember his real name and neither could they. » » * I was talking with Helen Johnson the other day, asking where her daughter Mrs. Evers was. I'd been trying to get her to ask for news. Somehow we got to talking about ice cream. She said, "Did you ever eat snow ice creamT* • I said, "Yes indeed - dozens and dozens of times." Mother would get newly fallen snow, so clean and white, add some cream, vanilla and sugar - of course it melted quickly and had to be consumed in a hurry, but is sure was good, believe it or not. * * » I have found out more about Kettle Ditsworth. She is a widow and married to Mr. Dorsett. Her home is at Lucedale, Miss., and she does a lot of traveling. She was here for a class reunion a few years ago and now she comes to my mind clearly. There was a Yeager family who lived neighbors to aunt Eva and uncle Bert Goddard in Bancroft and the Yeager girl married a Ditsworth, a connection of Nettle. Thanks to Mrs. Roy Ditsworth for the added information. I'm a "Jeggsette". about "Jiggsorine?" Or how When Mrs. Herb Hedlund was in Fort Dodge not long ago, Algona was mentioned and Irene Mallory, with whom she was talking, asked about Bertha Godfrey. Forty-fire years ago she and Bertha taught in Humboldt. She asked her address as she wants to write to her so I told Mrs. Hedlund to ask Haeel LUB- by. Bertha lives in Ames, but that is as much as I knew. I watched the "Bake Off'Tues- day, and hoped our Marie Dutton would win at least a thousand dollar prize. One recipe mentioned canned vegetable soup in BREAD, or was it muffins -ughI Wasn't that the $25,000 winner? I'd liked to have sampled It and some of the other things. All looked so good. Well, she got a nice trip out of it, a new stove and I don't remember what other loot, so it was worth trying for.
