Where DO the years go? - o - Romeo is back in town with his same "line". It seems to me it is time to change the record I - o - Little did I dream I'd outlast my crutches, but such is the case. After years of service, one decided to give up the ghost and when I went to use it yesterday morning, there was a long slit in one, from the arm piece, diagonally to the edge and about eight inches long. I decided it wasn't to be relied upon so I bought a new pair — aluminum. So far I haven't used them long enough to have them seem familiar, but a week should put us on good terms. The old ones have taken me miles and miles — I wonder how many. And many are the fall they have had. I have said if my legs of flesh were as active as my legs of wood, I'd be tripping all over ALWAYS FIRST QUALITY BIG BIRTHDAY BARGAINS the country. Too, I have said when I had passed from this mortal state, there should be a celebration, the crutches burned with appropriate ceremony and the ashes scattered over my last resting place! Even those plans were changed, for Lizzie Post said they would make good props in her garden. So as you pass her garden back of my little brown house, pause to salute wooden legs which have served me so well! - o As I have mentioned before, my late cousin Harry Goddard's wife has moved from Wichita, Kans. to Pocahontas where she has rented an apartment in the new four-unit place recently built there. She sent me a letter and card giving me her new address but I can't find it, so save me. So I addressed it, adding "new resident" and down in the lower corner I gave her former address at Wichita. I hope "Uncle Sam" will be able to figure it out better than the idr mail service did for Judy Naylor. - o Judy, who works at Ames in the national animal disease's" laboratory, has a couple of pen pals whom she visited at Ramsey St. Mary's, Huntingside, England- Mr. and Mrs. Steve Parker and Ann Clark. She also served as a bridesmaid. I didn't ask, but 1 assume it was for Mrs. Parker. She was there in July, was back in Algona Aug. 11 and a letter she had sent from England before starting for home, reached here Aug. 23. The letter had been written in July. Her flight took her to Glasgow, Scotland, Iceland and landed in New York. Her flight was delayed, so she did some telephoning home. She had met two traveling companions from Story City and they saw to it that she got from their home via auto to Ames. From there, Judy was able to get home easily. But one wonders what happened to delay the airmail letter she had sent from England in July. - o While we are on the subject of vacations and airplanes, Esther Barton flew to Los Angeles Aug. 17 and to Billings, Mont, to visit relatives. She returned home via plane too, and was back at her desk in the Funk Plumbing shop Aug. 29. - o What the years ago were and THRU SATURDAY ONLY Our own Gaymode nylons reduced!

"Fuzzy" was in poor health for some time and died last week. Rose is a resident here. - o - Rex is no longer the baby of the Dick Post family. He, Rick and Joan were here a few days ago to see Grandma Mary Zittritsch. Joan was leaving soon for Sioux City to take up her senior year's work at St. Joseph School of Nursing. It hadn't been but a few months since I had seen Rex and he was still a little boy. During these months he has shot up in height till he is nearly as tall as Rick, 16. Rex is 13. - o - I'll bet you could never guess who was a guest years ago of the late Clinton Lighter and his wife Myrtle, who though not in rugged health, is doing well for her years. At one time they lived in Moneta and had a couple of young women rooming with them. One was a special friend of — guess who - Lawrence Welk, who with two entertainers had come from an engagement in Chicago. The Lighters invited them for dinner and Lawrence told Mrs. Lighter he had never eatnn such a delicious chicken dinner. She says he has a charming person- ay ty, sincere and friendly. - o And not it comes to light, my nice Gene Barry about whom I have written so much, is really Gene KLASS. Well, that suits him to a T. I wish another series would be given on TV worthy of his looks and acting. He is very versatile. I have seen him as MC on "Hollywood Palace", he can sing ai.d dance — and brother, is he handsome 1 I became acquainted with him when he was doing " Burke's Law". - o - Back to school has made some changes in service here. Many who have worked morning and afternoon shifts now come at four. They are grand girls — full of pep — brimming over with good health and plans. It's great to be young. - o - It was interesting reading about the wedding performed by Rev. Gerald.Hallauer, former pastor , here, now located at Spencer, and his officiating at the marriage ceremony on board the boat "Queen" at the Okobojis. A small altar had been placed and guests in various types of boats, gaily decorated, encircled the marriage boat. The couple were Connie and Ace Cory of Omaha, Nebr. Both have had a great fondness for the lake since childhood and decided it would make a fitting marital background. Didn't I hear of an airplane marriage a few years ago ? - o- Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Diekoff attended the Iowa State Fair and nights were spent at Madrid with relatives. They enjoyed the show "Hawaii" in particular and I have heard it mentioned very favorably by others who saw it. With Julie Andrews in the cast it could hardly be less than wonderful. - o - Thank you, Elsa Goeders, for your nice letter and the enclosed picture done by Ann Adams, who is a polio victim. Prior to her illness, she was an artist and she has trained herself to hold a pencil between her teeth to draw. Each original drawing takes up to two months to complete and the dog pictured on the card is an adorable little fellow.

I'd like to have you back as you were when you brought me coffee kukens and chat with your mother. I doubt if I have spelled the kuken correctly, but you know what I mean, and they were delicious. - o - Right to the point - "A tax- weary accountant named his cruiser: Non-Deducti-Belle." - o - I'll close by saying, "Elsa, greetings to Jeanette — love to both of you, and news of your family was of interest."
