It is amazing how things that happened years ago bob up and are talked about. Some time ago I mentioned playing for a dance at Bancroft and a Frank Ingham wanting an introduction to me and a chance for a dance or two. Mr. Johannes, our "boss", said, "Get out and have a good time," and Fernley Nicoulin agreeably offered to carry on the violin section while I did a few dances with Frank. Mrs. Pearl Knox, Thor, was here yesterday, said she was at the dance, said she knew Frank acquired quite a "crush" in the short time we had together, and even remembered I woreabrown velvet dress. That was correct, but imagine that being remembered, Mrs. Knox clipped the item and sent it to a relative and it will probably land in Frank's mail err long. She said he lives in St. Paul. He had a sister, Mrs. John Fisher of Titonka, whom I mentioned, too. Mrs. Knox thought she was deceased but an Algonan who knew the Fishers at Titonka believe she is still living. If so, she has reached a ripe age. - o - Hazel Vera is a happy woman. She is expecting her daughter, Elvie (Mrs. Don Johnson), Tommey and Jimmy of Phoenix, Ariz, in a short time. In fact they are on their way even as I am writing this. - o - Mrs. Karl Kiilsholm and a group of Presbyterian Sunday School children were here and gave a little program on the lessons they learned at the Presbyterian Bible School. - o - Earl Rich was at his farm one day recently and came home with a shoe box full of strawberries. He has been very liberal with them-1 had two dishes, and they . .by Evelyn , iiintiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiniitiiiiiniiiiiii^ were delicious. Earl is a farmer at heart, having always lived on his place on highway 18 until a few years ago. Later, the George Lees lived there and I believe the Glen Sabins now live there. Earl and his sister, Mrs. Violet Walker, lived together until Mrs. Walker was no longer able to keep house. - o - Kennedy street south of us, past the Kyle Keith and Bill Funk houses, is being blacktopped, That will be good news to many persons who drive to Good Samaritan to see friends and relatives. - o - When I talked with Margaret Herbst about their vacation at Shelbyville, Ky., near Louisville, with Mr. and Mrs. William Logan, I told her I envied her as Kentucky has always been a favorite southern state I'd like to visit, I picture it with those lovely columned mansions set back in beautiful grounds - magnolias abloom, and all that romantic "la-de-dah", She said there are still many of thorn, but quite a few have turned commercial and have been made into tea rooms. Well, I hope several of the homes will be left intact, The south is so intriguing to me. - o - Mr, and Mrs. George Pheffer of Lake Crystal, Minn, were here recently to see Albert Cutler, and other Algona relatives. Mrs. Pheffer has opened a ceramic shop, does paintings, and found an Ideals magazine with some beautiful pictures she wants to use. Mrs. Nasby has given permission for her to have it and any others found around here. The pictures in the one magazine she saw in the reception room has some lovely subjects. - o - Misery likes company and I've found a kindred "sufferer" in Marg Dahl. She has a burn on her arm where she came in contact with an oven door. Mine is in the lower extremity - a pressure spot on an ankle. Sounds too silly to mention, but both are uncomfortable. Pll just say Pm glad Pm not a centipede. - o - Mrs. Anne Presthus supervised a little party here today. Bingo was played and refreshments served, but I took my usual nap instead. Even passed up refreshments. - o - I was so sorry to hear of the death of Sydney Cunningham and didn't hear about it until June 21, He was such a nice person and such a good conversationlist. I was sorry when he went to the new Good Samaritan Home, but glad for the accomodations he preferred. I had hoped to see him when I go there for a visit one of these nice days when Velma isn't busy. It seems as though everyone has so much to do this time of year. I always had our barber give him my greetings when he went from here to take care of thetonsorial needs. -fl- it took me a little time to recognize Mrs. Art Collinson, Oroville, Calif., when she called on me with Mrs. William Runchey the other day. She and her late husband formerly lived here and I know Lela and Stella, Arf s sisters, It has been a long time since I have seen them, though they live here in town. Mrs. Collinson has been a house guest a few days at the Runcheys and was going from here to Armstrong to see her sister, Mrs. Nettie Felkey. - o I don't believe in eternal punishment, but a few years of a bean diet might be good for the persons responsible for lima beans and kidney beans. They are along with my pet hates, cottage cheese and apple sauce. Don't bother to tell me where Elaine Fehr Of West Bend Weds Arnold WHderman They used to call 'em "nubbin acres!" The yield from this whole field didn't fill a triple box. Corn never got as high as your chin. Each time it rained, more top soil washed down the gullies. Finally, only pure clay and rocks were left. A few years ago, the farm owner joined with his neighbors in organizing a soil conservation district. Using approved anti- erosion practices, he held most of the water on the slopes to soak in. Fertilizer made crops grow on the nearly sterile soil. Plow- down legumes built up humus, and restored tilth. Yields today are almost as good as on valley land and the money and time invested return substantial dividends. Soil conservation practices come first in reclaiming eroded acres . . . but the right kind of fertilizers . . . balanced to soil requirements ... are essential, too. Cooperatives have led the way in soil testing, in formulating, manufacturing and distributing fertilizers at lowest possible net cost. They play a big part in making it profitable to restore productivity to farms ruined by erosion. This is another public service advertisement sponsored by cooperatives IRVINGTON CO-OP ELEVATOR E. F.

I can tolerate navy beans in small, far-apart doses, but Pm not on good terms with even them. Green string beans I like, but the yellow ones I classify with the other "no likes". - o - My sympathy to Lucille Grose Anderzen who had to have one of her pet "Doxies" put to sleep- old age and poor health, but he led a wonderful life. Nevertheless one does grieve for a pet. I never quite got over the death of my pet angora, but he was hit by a car and I'd much rather a Elaine Fehr, daughter of Mrs. Jessie Fehr, West Bend, became the bride of Arnold E.Wilderman, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. 0. Wilderman, also of West Bend, June 24, at the St. Peter and Paul's Catholic church, West Bend. The double ring ceremony was performed by Father Patrick Sheehan. Ann Baas served as maid of honor. Jean .Wilderman was "vet" had put him to sleep. - o - bridesmaid and Cindy Forsythe was flower girl. Ray Forsythe served as best man. Rodger Fehr was groomsman and Bill Fehr was ringbearer. Following the ceremony, a reception was held at the West Bend Legion club for about 200 guests. The couple graduated from West Bend High School. Mrs. Wilderman graduated from Maji- kato Commercial College and had been employed at the ASCS office in Algona. Mr. Wilderman graduated from Sioux City Barber College and is presently serving in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS McKean. The couple will be living in Long Reach, Calif.

Upper Des Moines-7 Real Tear-Jerker! There were some tear-filled eyes near the intersection of McGregor and Dodge streets here last Wednesday afternoon, June 28, when a liquid ammonia fertilizer tank trailer rolled over and spilled its contents on the paving. Algona firemen were called to the scene to wash the liquid into the nearest sewer - but not before the fumes became very noticeable at the site. The trailer unit, owned by Cargill, Inc. here, was being pulled by a tractor driven by Ray Hutchison, Algona. More than 600 gallons of ammonia were in the tank of the trailer when a pin sheared, causing the tongue of the trailer to dig into the street, rolling it over.
