6-Algena (lo.) Upper Des Moinct Thursday, Au fl u*t 24, 1967 Evelyn I don't know how this is going to work — I feel like a one-armed paper hanger. I go from ankle, now pronounced 100 per cent, to a left hand that is practically useless — what happened ? Well, I gave it a king-sized sprain when helping myself out of a chair. I'm grounded now except when helped to my feet by a nurse. And if you can imagine how cute my hand looks - red as a beet and swollen in the wrist area, then a hot pack, over which is a cellaphane bag that makes me hungry when I read "buns" on it. With medication started this a. m,, I hope I can soon spar with a wild cat! Bless the man who invented aspirin. It has tided me over some bad moments. - o - Hazel Lusby brought me two beautiful roses from her garden- a hard-to-describe shade of pink. They had such a wonderful fragrance. Alas, roses don't stay fresh very long and today I am reluctantly having them thrown away. - o - When Dr. Ray Potter told me about three trees near his house being struck by lightning three times within a few days, the latest being an oak tree just split down the center, I said "Maybe there is a vein of minerals in the area." So when my wrist is O.K., don't be surprised if you see Ray and I digging, hoping to find uranium ! Then watch us fly high I Pll have nothing less than a Rolls Royce, a four carat diamond' I don't know what Ray's desires are, but he'll make it big. - o - Seriously, the old spire on the Congregational church was struck by lightning so many times it was finally removed and there was conjecture that there might be a mineral vein nearby. Well, I'd settle for a gusher oil well on the lot where my little brown house stands. I caught Ted Larson peeling apples - a good job for a retired man whose wife, Nell, was preparing to can them - and I suppose as sign of her appreciation she made him a nice fat apple pie - sweet and with plenty of cinnamon and a slice of Velveeta cheese, or a scoop of ice cream. Til take ice cream, thank you. We might say Ted was on KP duty. -fl- it was with interest I read in the Register that a life-size replica of Iowa's first church building - the Methodist church built at Dubuque in 1834 will be featured at the Iowa State Fair, Aug. 18-27. The first speaker will be our former pastor, Rev. Newton Coughenour of St. Luke's Methodist church, Dubuque. Other denominations will be rep- 2LLGQHA THURSDAY, AUGUST 24TH Free Back To School Show TWO SHOWS - 1 AND 3 P.M.

Drinker And Dancer Birthday cards have begun to arrive. Thank you Leota, Maggie, and a letter from Dorothy Young Campbell. When I can use my typerwrlter after my wrist is O.K. Pll give some interesting quotes. Our bird feeder has taken on a new look, painted white and the pole and disk to discourage squirrels painted green. Last year two friends took me to Starlite Village, Ft. Dodge. Happy Birthday is played for those observing an anniversary and I have received an invitation to visit them again and have a smorgasbord dinner at half price. A nice gesture. - o - This will have to do for this week. Hope to be ship-shape soon. - o - August 14- The wrist is much better but still not fit for a typewriter. It has been such a nice birthday- dinner guest of Velma Hagg, a glimpse of the fair which reminded me of a beehive - cars and trucks zig-zagging in every direction, and a brief chat with Lizzie Post who is in charge of fancy work. None had been put up yet but were being labeled. There was hammering and noise in the floral hall and the Episcopal and Catholic stands about ready for business. I gave a nostalgic look at the place where Frank Mathes used to prepare chickens — the corner where the taffy man made such good candy. How the years turned back. - o Back to town, past the lovely new homes on ground nude years ago when we attended the fairs, past the late Edna Shilts house, which the Albert Haggs have bought, and having sold their California property, are hastening back to begin extensive improvements to the place. Thence to the site of the old McCall house owned by the Dr. Cleggs, now a mass of wood. Our old Algona is disappearing and Pm just old enough and sentimental enough to almost resent the changes. Oh, progress may be O.K., but it kinda' hurts - Pm just an old ninny. Paul Newman and Shelley Winters drink and dance in this scene from Warner Bros.' Technicolor and Panavision thriller "Harper" which opens on Sunday at the Starlite Drive-In Theatre. Jerry Gershwin and Elliot Kastner produced the film which stars Paul Newman in the title role of Lew Harper, a smart, quick-moving private-eye. Lauren Bacall, Julie Harris, Arthur Hill, Janet Leigh, Pamela Tiffin, Robert Wagner, Robert Webber and Shelley Winters co-star in the production directed by Jack Smight. thank all of you - and thanks for the many more cards. One from California contained a colored picture of our latest addition to the family tree. Little Katie Henderson Kierulff in a huge arm chair, red curls like her grandfather, Melvin Henderson, and such a beautiful baby she is. A wonderful cake from Marg Dalil which had me in a tizzy as to whom to give a piece. After all, large as it was, it would only go so far, so I selected the ones who wait on me most frequently, and I trust I haven't hurt anyones' feelings. Candy, pickles, flowers and cute little cone dogs, and "happy birthday" sung by Carl Hansen's six tots, cute little tikes, Erman who looks exactly like his dad, others resemble him, too, but one or two show a streak of "mama". They also brought a pretty bouquet of artificial flowers and a lovely card, bless their little hearts. And so another year has arrived and I wonder what it will hold. Good health, I hope. - o - on another day with Myrta West of Perry, former Algonan, and widow of Bob West whose father was a Bancroft doctor. 4 Blue Ribbons At State Fair, Area Entries Exhibits from Kossuth county entered in the 4-H home economics division of the Iowa State Fair won four blue, two red and two white ribbons, according to Galen DeValois, county extension director.

Add Milk Substituting the same amount of milk for water when preparing cooked cereals will add extra nourishment as well as flavor to a favorite breakfast dish. TEEN FAVORITE — Dancing polka dots on dark colored cotton add flair to the skimmer. The elongated torso, accented by its own hip belt, swings into a flouncy skirt. White rick rack adds dainty detail .to the Peter Pan collar and cuffed sleeves.
