March 1-Atypical March wind blowing, but bright sunshine and a feel of spring in the air. And just where did winter go ? The flights of the seasons are dizzying - and all too soon it will be winter again. But let's enjoy- this season and I am waiting for the first report on a robin. Bless their pretty red breasts and song I I had an interesting caller the other evening and wish I had more opportunity to talk over several subjects I consider of importance. Her name is Sutira Soitet, Thailand, the exchange student who is making her home with Mr. and Mrs. James Dodds. They had been here to see Mrs. Geneva Dodds and came in to call on me. I was amazed that Sutira is a senior in high school. She looks so young and even more amazing was her command of the English language. The Sherman Littles of San Rafael, Calif, are on the prowl again and a recent card from them came from Las Vegas, Nev. "No gambling" they said, "just seeing shows." Another card gave a program of the LeLido de Paris, Grand Prix Revue." It looked like very interesting entertainment and since I love shows, too, I'd like to have been with them. They have the right idea. Go while you can - it's later than you think. * * * Millie Nolte had a card a couple of weeks ago from her brother, Ed Genrich, who with his wife Genevieve has been on one of the conducted tours and had reached Hawaii. They were to be there a couple of weeks and are probably home by this time. This is their third trip. There isn't much left for them to see, unless they try for the moon, which wouldn't surprise me if they ever get airlines there. Well, since I've been told there's no man on the moon, I'll just stay on terra firma! Oh, yes- other things enter into my rejection of the moon trip I There are so many old saws — I wonder how "the moon is made of green cheese" originated. Does anybody know ? How would you like to step out your door and pick yourself an orange for breakfast or a snack? Or a lemon for pie or a drink ? Well, many a California!! can do that and Edna Stebbins is one of those fortunate ones, according to an interesting letter I had from her recently. I mustn't forget to ask her if the Orange Belt Emporium is still doing business. That was to Pomona what Fields is to Chicago or Foleys to Houston. Edna said it is 45 years ago Jan. 29 that she and her husband Ross and daughter Leeta left Algona. Naturally she has become attached to the place, for she has lived there longer than in Iowa. Ross was a barber here for Carl Wauge and dad always wanted him to shave him. He had tender skin and said Ross could do the best and gentlest job of any barber here. Ross discontinued the trade in Pomona and went into a small business at which he prospered. He has been deceased several years. Edna clerked in a clothing store for a long time but has now retired just in time to enjoy her little granddaughter, Kathryn Klerulff to the utmost. * * * The pesky squirrels are back at the bird feeder. Last winter the feeder was undisturbed, but just now I saw a fat moocher gobbling as fast as he could. Earl Rich chased him away, but he'll be back, darn him. I wish he was in the frying pan and I was having a serving of him. * * * Some March birthdays I am remembering - not by gifts, just thoughts-St. Patrick, of course, March 9; March 14, and March 20, anniversaries of friends long gone. * * * The Lowe family will be well- remembered, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Lowe, Bertha, Clifford, John and Ethel (Shortie). Margaret Reid had a recent letter from her relative, Josie Taylor, 'who married Clifford Lowe and after his death married EdBrat- vett. She and Clifford had a son Henry. At one time all lived in South Dakota where the Henry Lowes and Bertha took claims. Years ago, all died and now Josie and some of her relatives live at Nappa, Calif. * * * New Service Supervisor At Phone Co. Lu Verne Make this St. Patrick's day and every other day secure.

C. Just in case you might be interested in my eye —it's back to normal, thank goodness. Hope it never happens again. * * * I've gone along with stretch pants, teased hair, mini skirts, but it has reached the limit when a woman dons a rubber bathing cap, puts a hole in the top to pull her hair through, then arranges it in a fantastic design, one long curly-cue down over the forehead and an eye pasted in the center. Anyone who is interested can have the two I cut out of an eye wash ad, just in case anyone has gone berserk. * * * I won't miss "What's My Line" and haven't watched it for months. Candid Camera is in the same category. Sopranos can be eliminated, too, except NormaZimmer of the Welk program. Just a bit of nostalgia - Pd like to hear Alice Lon again. She didn't have the finished voice of Norma, nor could they sing the same types of songs effectively, but Alice was a cute trick - sort of a Clara Bow of years ago. Clara didn't sing, but their types were similar I think. Anyone want to argue? And hurrah I Perry Mason will be back next season 1 r-.. * * * •How happy Dot Smith and her family must be. She was dismissed from .Good Samaritan H yesterday and is now established in her Martin apartment. * * * I am not the "stayer-upper" I used to be. I wish the TV plays would go on an hour earlier. Oh, once in a while I can hold out till 10, but It has to be good or else I * * * When the Amy and Bill Geering's son-in-law and daughter, Betty, Rev. and Mrs. Everett Black and family were living in Kansas, Betty was always wishing the children could get up here and enjoy the snow. Well, the Blacks moved to Glen Ellyn, m. some time ago, so Amy needn't fear - the children had PLENTY of snow this winter to enjoy- or perhaps otherwise. * * * This story gleaned from the Readers Digest struck me as being particularly amusing-and typical of the times and magazine articles in about every current periodical. The doctor who was delivering an infant was puzzled about the wide grin on the newly born infant's face till he noticed a clutched little fist, and upon opening it, there was-the PiE. * * * Turtle to turtle-Don't you love the sound of rain on your roof? * * * Honors go to Mrs. Adrian Sterling 1 First robin seen and heard by her March 1 - Hurrah 1 It's nesting time, too. Just saw a sparrow with a long spear of dry grass. RICHARD NELSON Richard L. Nelson, Cedar Rapids, has been named service supervisor for Northwestern Bell Telephone Co. here. He leaves the position of service foreman at Cedar Rapids. Nelson joined the telephone company in 1965 at Iowa City. A year later he was named service foreman at Cedar Rapids.

Call St. in Algona. lavish a lot of it on them. I can't begin to tell her adequate thanks. * * * Mrs. William Cook is head over heels in piecing quilt tops. Remember when women exchanged designs and had bees and refreshments ? Cotton batting used to go between the tops and linings, but it was found some time ago cotton sheets are better. And what fun to look at pieces of materials used in well-remembered dresses. Elva Coon's hobby is braided rugs. I wonder how many she has made and the size of the largest?
