And now comes a card from Nettie Dltsworth Dorsett from Hotel Germania Munchen, stamped Deutsche Bundespost. Tlie picture is of a statue of a girl on a rock and the explanation on the card says Copenhagen, Denmark. The little Mermaid at the "Langelinie" etc. Nettie says, "I thought you might like to see Hans Christian Anderson's memorial of his story. She is a very popular lady on this canal.

Make Strong Communities "Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin." -Psalms 32:1-2 Those who profess Christianity are expected to be virtuous and moral. Yet, we expect top much if we believe that Christianity offers us a life without temptation. Temptation is as old as the history of man. We all know the story of temptation in the Garden of Eden. Jesus was tempted during his life upon earth. In Christianity we may find the grace of faith, the strength t n a. t we need to meet and conquer temptation, and to seek forgiveness for human frailties.

It was quite a lengthy item and I won't quote further, but it sheds light on many things, and sounds more logical and more factual than any we have read in so many years. The conclusions were based on texts uncovered in 1961. * * * Having read my item on Frank Ingham and Mrs. John Fisher, Mrs. John Boyken a relative of both, stopped in to talk with me and said Mrs. Fisher died about three years ago. The son Stanley lives with a brother in California. Stanley was born under an unlucky star and added to a birth handicap, fell when just a small child and suffered facial burns. Not only that, he had a speecli impediment but I have seen him under conditions that I know his intelligence is much greater than he is able to express. One tiling I base my opinions on is that many years ago he attended a matinee at which mother and I sat not far from him. There was quite a bit of comedy, some subtle, but Stanley caught all of it at once and we could hear him chuckle so we knew he was alert in spite of not having too good balance in walking and Mr. Rice helped him down the rather steep aisle. And one time mother and I met him and his mother at the Kossuth County Fair. By that time I was in a wheel chair and he expressed sympathy for me. If you think we haven't had a freakish summer, this may help convince you. Mrs. O.B. Laing told me they had a fire in their fireplace July 4. It is a cute little red brick affair in one corner of the kitchen - and just the right size - I don't like these big, dominating ones. This is settled back against the wall — I don't like the protruding kind. The Laing*s is just right for weenies, pop corn, marshmallows, etc. * * * Further proof of the cold ./as that Margaret Hofmaster and her sister Jean Wadsworth stayed only one night at Templar Park after having had as a gift from their nephew reservations for a week. It was so cold and so lacking in enough bedding for comfort, they came home after one day, glad to be at home where they could turn the furnace as high as they wanted. Lightning is a freakish tiling. The other day it came into the William Cook home, hit the electric stove and put it out of commission. No damage done to the house, thank goodness, and no damage to anything else. Luckily, they had insurance, but I doubt il the damage was very expensive. So, hurrah again. When there is a storm, I set my little bridge lamp quite far from me. One day when I was still in my home, a flash of light ran up the metal standard, out went the light, but the bulb didn't break. I was afraid to do anything to see if a new bulb I had would be 0. K, I phoned Ray Cook, he came down, looked things over and all was 0. K., but it took out several lights at the hotel, tie said. * * * Mrs. David Hovey, an aide here said, "Put in your column that my husband says have the soldiers families and friends write to them often. Mail means SO much to all of them, and some receive so little. They need home news and it gives the men a lift to get mail." Iknownoneofthemen in the service, but believe me, if I did, I'd smother them with letters. Sn you who have - WRITE OFTEN. * + * I don't want to smother you with Tidbits, but this is a seasonal quip- For everyone looking forward to taking a vacation, there's sorneljocly looking forward to taking a vacationer. + * * And if you are going to the seashore there's the pessimist who held a sea shell to his ear and heard a faucet dripping. j, *. ^ I don't know what in the world 1 could ever have written that would give the impression I arna U<; woman, so just for tht record I'll mention that 1 graduated at I 1 ?, v/eiglitd 93 pounds and measured 34-21-32.
