4-Algena (la.) Upper De$ MoinM Thursday, Od. 19, 1967 iiiiliiiniHiHiiflninniiminininiiniiiiniiiiiraimiiniraiiiiiiiHiininHiiiiiiiifliimiiiiinti Here is an interesting goof I read in the Register, "She broke her leg and was no longer able to talk." Well, that's ONE •way of shutting her up 1 - o - A few years ago when Hazel Lusby, Lizzie Post and I were visiting the late Abner Longs at Davenport, we drove to Mus- catlne to see our very good friend, Earl Bradley, who had made his home there for some time. Buttons used to be a thriving business in Muscatine, with plenty of clam shells to make them. With the advent of plastics, the button business has practically closed I read the other day. I recall saying to Earl the pearl button business must be diminishing a considerable amount, which was verified by this item a few weeks ago. - o - My visit with Blanche Turner Hrbek and her husband Joe of Omaha was enjoyable and I told Blanche of an amusing incident of years ago. Bertha Cowles, Zada Brunson, Florence Patterson and I, all in the same room at school and living in the same neighborhood, decided we'd like to go Halloweening. Our mothers cooperated by draping sheets around us and then what to do! I said, "Lefs sing our school song 'Hist, hist be still, On tiptoe now advance. We've come to have a merry brownies dance' and sing 'Ghosts Dance' in place of brownies." We tapped on the door at the Dexter Turner home and when invited to enter, we found Mrs. Turner by the fireside with her feet in a tub of hot water — a treatment for corns. We thought nothing of it, did our little dance around her and went on to the next place. I don't remember who else we visited, but Mrs. Turner was so embarrassed. Years afterward she mentioned it and I assured her we never gave it a thought. Never mentioned it. 1 have mentioned that a group of us went to the Johnson House for dinner not long ago. A few were unable to join us for various reasons but the group present was Velma Hagg, Ruth Cook, Hazel Burns, LeotaGeigel, Hattie Burlingame, Agatha Hansen and I. Leota had brought a book with her containing pictures of many of the old Algona homes. It was printed in 1900 and Hazel brought it over for me to peruse more leisurely and to clear up some questions. One was about the E. J. Murtagh house and the W. K. Ferguson home. Well, the Murtagh house is now owned by the Jim Utts and the Ferguson home, later known as the McCall house is the one that has been destroyed to make way for Kossuth Mutual Insurance Co. The Fuzzy Robinault house being razed was owned by the Walkers- John was one and he and his brother had a grocery store later known as the Moe and Sjogren store. Grandma Walker lived in the house and her granddaughter Vera Kimball was a close friend of mine back in grade school. She stayed with her grandmother during the week to go to school, then went home for weekends with her parents, whose farm was later the Schoby place and has a long lane leading to the house. - o - Mrs. Pearly Haynes, who has been at Britt, has become a resident here, coming in today Oct. 10. - o Bob Rellly brought me a copy of Harpers Weekly edited Jan. 6, 1906. If you question whether or not we have made progress in motor vehicles, you should see the pictures of cars and read the ads. Even the front cover showed a group of five adults speeding in a car, top rolled back like the old buggies used to have, lantern-like lights ahead of where our present windshields are, no windshield on this machine, however, and the women wore veils to help keep their hats in place. - o The first page inside shows a Rambler priced at $2,500, has no windshield and no doors on the front, motor, four cylinder, 3540 horsepower. The Model K, self-starting Winton was advertised as the only self" star ting car. No more cranking, one of the four cylinders ready- charged with gas will spark it into action with no sparking, saves on gas because it can be stopped and started again when ready, from the seat "And a dainty woman may now drive a Winton without the necessity of cranking it at every stop". (A good sales line, I'd say). It had a flexible pneumatic speed control which gives a range of 4 to 50 miles an hour, big tires, 34 by 4 inches, powerful brakes, luxurious, priced at$2,500. Then there was a picture of a touring car with a canopy. Still no windshield. On this page was a discourse by Dave Morris on "The Automobilist and the Law." Speed was limited to ten miles an hour. - o - A picture of a test climb was of interest. A ramp at a considerable slant was used to test the car's ability, then a page of buses, an ambulance, and at long last, a one-seated cab driven "from the inside". Next a mail truck, then an automobile drawing a road roller. And of all things 1 Racers ! Paul Sartori, who was to drive Alfred Vanderbilt's 250 horsepower car, Hemery, winner of the Vanderbilt cup in his t Darracq, Foxhall Keene in his 120 horsepower Mercedes, and Lancia In his 120 horsepower Fiat, the race held on the Ormond-Daytona Beach, Fla. - o - Then came a story, "Buchanan's Wife", but when I saw it was to be continued, I didn't start it as I know I'd always wonder what happened in the end, but it looked much like most of our present TV programs a man in a dinner jacket, well- creased trousers, the wine bottle close at hand, a well-aimed revolver toward the caller who wore a stiff derby ! - o - Emma Eames, a well-known figure in opera, had returned to the Metropolitan and was pictured with her dachshund and elegantly dressed in street costume - turban hat and dotted face veil. - o - The Pope-Hartford car (never heard of it before) also was priced at $2,50'0) all gears encased, 28-30 H.P., transmission gear, sliding, 3-speeds forward and reverse. Carburetor specially designed, insuring economy in fuel consumption. Extension top, $125 extra. Still no windshields. I wonder when they were dreamed up and put on. - o - Of course, liquor had to be advertised! Hunter Baltimore rye, John Jameson Three Star whiskey, Peres Charteux. And for ailments, there was a Dr. Whitehall's rheumatism cure, Buffalo Lithis Water and a more familiar sauce I had heard of previously -.Lea and Perkins for salads, meats and fish. And, believe it or not, Bordens condensed milk has survived the years. Grape-Nuts breakfast food was mentioned. It was a favorite of mine which I haven't thought of in years. - o - $wansons AD PRICES GOOD THRU WEDNESDAY, OCT. 25 SWANSON'S \~ • - U.S. CHOICE 7-BONE CUT BEEF ROASTS U.S. CHOICE L^AN ARM ROASTS Lb. On the humorous side was a story of a milkman brought into court on charges of milk adulteration. In defense he said, "It was raining very hard the night before and the only cause I can give is the cow must have got wet through." - o There was much more to be covered in the magazine, but I'll close with this headed Well Placed. Old gentlemen, "Getting on well at school, my boy 1 Got a good place in your class, eh 7" Little boy, "Yes sir; next the stove." - o Oh yes - there was an ad for diamonds, too, but I won't go into that I - o Don't get the idea the magazine was all frivolity. There were political discourses on timely topics, and one I noticed in particular was against hazing. In view of the recent death of the college youth who was made to swallow a quantity of liquid of most revolting composition, and his stomach acting in rebellion, he died from nausea. Hazing is a senseless thing and should be completely abolished. - o - 'Tis said there's no marriage nor giving in marriage when we reach that Golden Shore.

The wedding took place in the Ferndale wedding chapel at Santa Ana, Calif. Rev. John Parker officiated at the double ring ceremony. Robert Goff, organist, accompanied Mrs. John Parker, who sang. The bride, given in marriage by her father, wore a floor- length wedding gown of peau de sole, made in the empire style with lilly-point sleeves and a front panel of chantilly lace. Her chantilly lace train fell from the shoulders of her gown. The pure silk illusion, shoulder- length veil was held by a crown trimmed with pearls. She carried a bouquet of stephanotis, carnations and ivy centered with a white orchid. Her jewelry was a single pearl drop necklace, a gift from the groom. Mrs. Hallard Snyder, sister of the bride, was matron of honor. Nancy Feine was bridesmaid and Sandy Feine, junior bridesmaid. Gregory Snyder served as ringbearer. The bridegroom's attendants were his brother, Jerry Feine as best man; Marvin Miller, groomsman; and Jeffrey, junior groomsman. A reception was held in the chapel immediately following the ceremony. Mrs. Marvin Miller was in charge of the guest book. The bride and groom are 1964 graduates of the Spring Valley High School. The bride attended Fullerton Junior College, Fullerton, Calif., and has been employed at Buena Park, Calif. The bridegroom served two years in the U. S. Army and has been stationed at Petaluma, Calif. After a wedding trip to southern California, the groom will report to a replacement company at Ft. Campbell, Ky. for further assignment.
