8-Algona (la.) Upper De* Molnes Thursday, April 13, 1967 their beds. Evelyn March 30 - Almost time for April showers which I think everyone would greet joyfully. It is dry and dusty and a good soaking rain would start the grass and spring flowers, yet there are reports on early flowers bravely coming up. Speaking of flowers, my last violets didn't do well and I called"Dr. Catherine Fisch", who took them home and discovered the sponges in the bottom of the planter Were no longer absorbing the water as they should. So, over she came with 2 new plants, a purple and a white slightly tinted, both beautiful and so perky. Mrs. Walter Morz was delivering some belated Easter reading pamphlets and brought one to me. Something was said, I don't remember just what, but she exclaimed, "Oh, YOU are the one who writes Tidbits". I entered a guilty plea and was gratified at her kind remarks. Then she disclosed that her husband, pastor of the Presbyterian church, and Dick Post were World War n buddies. Just more proof of this small world. The picture of little Martha Smith and the big bunnie she won was so cute. I called her mother, Trudy to tell her what an adorable daughter she and Don Jr. have. There was no argument there - they know what a honey she is, and her big eyes don't miss a thing, I'll bet. Well, I'm sure our little Katie will be a cutie, too. Her mother Gayle Henderson, was and her father Herbert Kierulff is a fine looking man and Gayle is a very attractive woman. A recent letter from Gayle had a picture of him enclosed, but I have already mentioned it and the change of residence from Pomona to Glendale. * * * Mrs. Geneva Dodds, who has been a resident here for some time, considers herself well enough now to return to her own home. I believe her injuries were received in an auto accident, and though she uses one crutch, she seems to get around quite well. Idon'tbelieve I'd be brave enough to try and keep house by myself. Two girls came in yesterday and stood in the hall outside my door. They seemed a little un- certain as to where to go, so I asked if there was anything I could do to help them. I thought they might be calling on someone and didn't know where to go. It turned out one wanted to see Mr. Nasby so I called a nurse who contacted him. In the meantime, we talked a little and I said to the smaller one "how old are you", for I know there is an age limit. I figured she was about 14 from her size. 1 was floored when she said 22. I said, "stand by me. Maybe there is SOMEONE I am taller than." But bless me - Hattie Burligame was here and she said there was so little difference, but I might just be an inch taller, possibly. She weighes 90 pounds. I weighed 93 in high school, but now I'm 110 and wish I were back to 100. Is anyone ever satisfied? This was in the April Readers Digest and is so cute I want to pass it on. "Arm-in-arm, my husband and I left the altar to the strains of the wedding march. Nearly at the door, I turned my ankle and winced in pain. I felt it swelling, but it was hidden by my long gown. With difficulty, I managed to walk the few steps to the waiting taxi. Til never forget the look on the driver's face when my husband said urgently, "To the hospital, and hurry." (Helen Millham, Fullerton, Pa.) There was another cute one and I phoned Trudy Smith and read it to her. Don puts a few clever bits in his column and maybe he will use it. It also was in the Digest, but was more well, we'll see if he uses it. There are three cartoons I look at each day - "Family Circus" first, then Abbie and Slats and then Dagwood. " Family C i rcus' is the best by far, and so typical. It takes Abbie a long time to reach the point, and I knew all the time Fritz would let the inner man come uppermost and win the race for good old what- you-may-call it school - but it took several days before he did the right thing. As for Dagwood, he must be the cleanest man in the world, for he is in the bath tub so frequently. Noon - and when I got up to turn on my radio, I looked out the window and there was the robbin I heard a few days ago. Bless his little red breast! And a cardinal favored us with a flash into the pine tree. I wish they'd come oftener and stay longer. They are so pretty, but flit away so soon. Two more days till the TV magazine section crossword puzzle. I should have the greatest vocabulary after doing so many and some of the words are pretty "far out", but I love it and start it as soon as I do my Sunday reading-religious booklets and a certain number of chapters of the Bible. I call it my going to church. I have finished Psalms which I think are frequently hard to get the exact meaning. I am in Proverbs now, then Til go back over the New Testament. One can always find something new no matter how frequently read. Apparently the Littles are back home, for I received a picture folder of San Francisco and San Rafael, their home, is in that area. San Francisco is a most interesting place. was always a strong resemblance of Gary Cooper and Fernley Nicoulin, which friends of the latter noticed. When I called a friend today she said she was having an early dinner. Being a gourmet, I said, "What are you having?" She said "Corn on the cob," which made drool. Then another friend said she was having liver. Well, I am not fond of liver, so I'd rather be dining with the corn- on-the~cobber. * * * Remember that old gag, which was supposed to be humorous. Customer to butcher, "Take back your heart - I ordered liver." Well, be it liver or heart, I can do without either nicely, and I'm not too fond of tongue. As for kidneys, which we don't hear too much about except in books with an English setting - kidney pie is supposed to be so good, but my pet cat turned his nose up at them even though we thought we were preparing a delicacy we though he'd like. So much for "innards." BARBER Mayor E. C. Carnal of Tama retired last month after 45 years barbering in the same room where he started on Main street. Carnal will continue as mayor of Tama and is now in his 27th year.

It can't compare in my opinion with the Perry Mason stories, but I may become accustomed to the new cast. I liked "Delia" "Paul" and the district attorney so much. One newspaper item said Burr has been on TV nine years and felt it was time to have a well-earned rest, but I am glad he will be on this new series and I hope in time I'll learn to like the cast. * * * The men here appreciate the warmer weather for now the sun porch is warm enough for them to sit there. The view is so nice and it's a fine place for chichat. The women on second floor have a nice room, too, overlooking College and Hall streets. It also serves as dining room for those who are able to leave Did any of you UDM readers notice how much Dan Murphy, who was guest speaker at the banquet April 6 at Garrigan, looks like "Paul Drake" (William Hopper) of the Perry Mason TV programs? The Thursday evening storm almost spoiled the Dean Martin show- but it didn't come with so much force till I had seen Gene Barry. Then I shut the TV off. Wouldn't it be nice if some scientist would concentrate on the elimination of storm interference rather than moon travel? A chat with Fern Foster revealed that she too noticed the Drake-Murphy resemblance. She said "When I saw the Murphy picture I though, WHO does he remind me of?" I mentioned it, and she said, "That's it!'
