i RMMi Evelyn iiinniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiliiiiniiiiiHiiiw If s a strange world - the meek and lowly, the high and mighty, the successful and the failures, all reach the ultimate goal — death — and while I was never a fan of Jayne Mansfield, her untimely and tragic death seems pitiful. A woman of wealth who could have everything In the world — a family who loved her of course, yet will be well taken care of, contrasted with someone of no means, a struggle for a mere existence — well, it all adds up "there's a destiny that shapes our ends" - a quote from Shakespeare if I remember my English. - o Just how inspired this column will be this week remains to be seen, for I am still far from the Evelyn I usually am, This darned infection had a good grip on me and I am so full of dope I feel as if one pushed on my tummy just a little, I'd spout a wee bit of cough medicine, a pretty little pill, an equally pretty little capsule, a vicious-looking huge capsule, plus a couple of aspirin, followed by two shots - you know where - plus hot packs. All together I'm a mess I My pep is too low to measure, so let's just say NUTS. - o - I've been so proud of being able to do my own bath except from my knees down, and this morning I hide my face in shame- I had a bed bath. Oh well, I've had so many of those over the years, why let another disturb me. Kitty Phillips brought me some books yesterday and was telling me of a friend a little younger than I who has had arthritis since young girlhood. I gather it came on her earlier than 1-22. I was hoping she would be here. Pd like to meet her, but Kitty said she would only come as far as Corning. One always likes to compare notes. If we can't talk about our grandchildren, we might as well talk about our infirmities. - o - Thank goodness Ray Potter has his ailments licked. He looks and feels fine and I predict at least 20 more years of life and love of living. My very best wishes to him, - o - While I was having my ailments, a letter yesterday from Gayle Henderson Kierulff said she was hospitalized. A kidney infection and hormone imbalance. Hormones are odd things and can do queer tricks. Several years ago as I was being taken off the elevator at Iowa City, a pretty girl was being put on- a girl Pd say of 20 - plus. She had the nicest Van Dyke beard you ever saw and could have had a good side show spot, had she wanted it - but I don't blame her for wanting to be a female-female. I asked my nurse, "What in the world ails her?" "Too many male hormones," she answered. - o- This whole column seems to deal with aliments. This item has to do with Delbert Moore who was severely injured in an auto accident months ago. He has to wear braces from his hips down, but is able to swing himself on crutches and gets around pretty well. He's lucky to be alive and able to be on his feet. At present, he and his family are living In a trailer house, but later plan to have a house with a sidewalk and yard so he can be outdoors more of the time. - o - So Doc Karl Hoffman made a hole in one. Well, so what? He's been doing that for years then filled them up again 1 Seriously, congratulations. - o Well, two ads in one day with the kind invitation to purchase lakeside lots - build a summer home and live it up! Yep that's JUST what I need. One was the Spirit Lake area, one some place in Missouri I never heard of, and since I am not an LBJ or a Jackie, I am afraid I'll never become the lake lot owner. Theodosia Hills, They tell me I am a winner of a contest I never even heard of-much less Bull Shoals Lake in the heart of the Ozarks I Sounds enchanting. - o A letter from Maggie Pannkuk of Fairmont had an enclosed newspaper picture of a mother mallard taking her routed family of 11 ducks from under a fence through the backyard of Mr. and Mrs. Jerome Kramer, Maggie's son-in-law and daughter. Cars waited while the family crossed the road, single file, then making a dive and over another wall, then to the water where they swam straight to the middle. - o- She also enclosed a picture of her granddaughter, Barbara Jo Pannkuk, whose engagement to Kenneth Olson has been announced. She is employed at STRONG CHURCHES.. Make StrMg ComwnitlM "Make love your aim, and earnestly desire thespiritual gifts, especially that you may prophesy. — Corinthians 14:1 Make love your aim and there will be no room in your heart for hate or envy. Begin with a love of God. Make God the center of your world. Love your family and your friends. Look for the good that is in every man and be not impatient with imperfections.

Her son, Frank, will be in Anchorage, Alaska a couple of weeks. He left his home at Minneapolis at 7:45 p. m. and reached Alaska at 11:30 p. m. Isn't it amazing how space is covered! - o - The tourist season! "Today's voice crying in the wilderness is a tourist whose wife read the map." To which might be added, "With cans and bottles and general upheaval, the picnicker remains the forest's prime evil". - o - Edna Stebbins, Pomona, Calif., and her sister, Margaret Ross, Dayton, Ohio, make alternate visits each year. This year it was Edna's turn to go to Ohio and in August their sister, Lulu, will join them. They will be remembered as the Winslow sisters. A sister, Cecile, and brother, Harry, are deceased. Edna is grandmother of my cousin, Gayle Kierulff, and I am looking forward to Edna's visit in Algona and a first-hand report on all the family. She is also a close friend of the Mary Miller daughters, Twilla Bartholomew and Mrs. Wellendorf, and many, many other friends here. She grew to young womanhood here, married Ross Stebbins and they had a daughter Leeta who married my cousin, Melvin Henderson. She is also related to the Naudains.
