8-Al9ono (la.) Upp«r DM Molnw Thuriday, Oct. 26, 1967 Mar/een Harr, Wesley, Weds Donald Theesfield Marleen Harr, daughter of Mrs. Maurine Harr and the late Fred Harr, Wesley, and Donald L. Theesfield, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Theesfield, Estherville, were married Saturday, Oct. 14, at 10:30 a. m. in St. Joseph's Catholic church, Wesley, with Fr. Robert Phillips officiating at the double ring ceremony. The bride was attended by her sisters, Mrs. Dennis Wehr- span, Mrs. Harlan Leininger and Mrs. Richard Thul. Groomsmen were Alan Pluth, Roger Coyle and Gary Theesfield, brother of the groom, and ushers were Harlan Hoganson and Allen Olson. The bride was attired in a white satin floor-length dress with empire waist and long pointed sleeves. Her full-length veil was held in place by a white satin rose and trimmed in rose lace. She carried a small bouquet of yellow sweetheart roses attached to a white prayer book and her only jewelry was a pair of hand-carved rose earrings. A dinner-reception was held immediately following the ceremony in the church parlors. Mrs. Donald Potthoff had the guest book, Mrs. Ray McAfee and Mrs. Bob Watson cut the cake. Waitresses were Sandy Ackerson, Audrey Youngwirth and Mary Ellen Studer. Dorothy Ann Theesfield, sister of the groom, Catherine and Judith Theesfield opened the gifts. Diane Becker was the personal attendant to the bride. After a wedding trip into parts of Wisconsin, Minnesota, Illinois and eastern Iowa, the newlyweds are at home in Algona. (Glenn's Studio Photo) liked what he ate and liked the girl, so he walked her home. Raymon had been transferred to Indianapolis, Ind. and now is vice president of the company and lives at Lansing, Mich. All of his friends are glad that he has been so successful. Betty looked a little thin, but very lovely. In the meantime they have had two daughters, Patty and Kathy. Both are married, Patty lives in Chicago, and Pve forgotten where Kathy lives. Kathy has a small daughter, but Patty has no family. From here the Henrys were going to Des Moines and Chariton to see Raymon's sister, then to Kirksville, Mo. to see Betty's mother. They had a two week vacation in which to ramble around. It was wonderful seeing them. - o - I had a card fromEdandGene- vieve Genrich who were at Expo '67 and were to be here Oct. 16 and will remain till mid- November. They promised me a visit and I am looking forward to it. - o - I am glad the Methodist church has sent out printed material in regard to TV programs, not a local project, but one covering a wide area. Cards were enclosed to be used for the three networks, NBC, CBS and ABC. My replies went out in this morning's mail and a part of mine was urging the keeping of Lawrence Welk's program first of all, very favorable opinions of Andy Griffith, Family Affair, Smothers Brothers, with a few criticisms, especially that everlasting hesitancy to speak of one brother and their mild bickering. I hoped we could have more of Perry Mason pictures, but urged cancellation of Daktari, Hillbillies, Flying Nun and a few others, and especially the pictures of violence. We read enough of that in real life - o - Another thing for which I am glad is that Venus has been reached and we won't have to worry about getting tickets to visit her; Mars turns out to be a place no one could live; so let's be happy and enjoy good old Earth as long as possible. We will have to concede the Russians are smart, and I still look forward to the time we can be real friends. I had an argument years ago with a friend now deceased, about the outcome of our relations with them. I hope I can say before too many years, "I told you so," even though the friend won't hear me. - o - I had forgotten Elliott Roosevelt had so many wives. Five! Maybe he was trying to catch up with Tommy Mansfield, but the latter is now out of the race, so maybe Elliott will stop at five. I can recall what a to- do was made when Alice Roosevelt married. Her husband was quite a lot older, I believe, but the papers dubbed her "Princess Alice" and had their usual heyday! - o - Talking about when we "reach the other side" causes a lot of controversy and the assurance that we will know each other as we are known here makes us gulp and wonder. Well, there are several I'd like to meet-George Washington, and Til ask him about that cherry tree episode; Lincoln, and I'll ask him about Ann RuUedge; Louisa May Alcott, whom I would like to tell her "Little Women" is still my favorite book even if I am far past my youth; and if Ike gets there before I, I want to meet him. Poor fellow. He seems to be having a lot of health troubles which I hope he overcomes and lives many more years. Pve always had a deep admiration for him, and Pd like to meet F.D.R. and John Kennedy. Then it would be nice to meet my cousin a few times removed, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and listen awhile to how she worked for women's right to vote. It is rather ironic that I had just finished the preceding paragraph when a phone call gave me a message that grieves me and has to do with "the other side". Dot Smith, after weeks of up and down with a heart ailment, died Oct. 18 at St. Ann hospital. So it is with a heavy heart I am . says they dorit Westerns like they used to? Evelyn ^ miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiniitiiH Many years ago, the entire block where the Algona library stands was owned by Capt. and Mrs. W. H. Ingham. Their home was the only building in the block and it stood where the present Farm Bureau building is. The south part of the house was a story and a half building, the north part was a two story, square-roofed addition. Eventually the Inghams gave the half lot for the library and since it was called a Carnegie edifice, it is to be presumed he donated a considerable fund and perhaps the Inghams did, too. However, as I have always understood it, no other buildings were to ever be built on the block, toe exception being the house built by Frank Dingley, and after his death and his wife's a few years later, the house was much too large for the daughter Helen and a deal was made whereby the Farm Bureau purchased it, - o - The Inghams had a few children, among whom was Mrs. Doxsee and a son Harvey. There was possibly another daughter, I've forgotten. What I do recall is that Harvey married a Miss Hepburn and they built the house now owned by the Vallo Naudains across the road south of the old home and in the middle of the block. They had three sons, Hepburn, William and Harvey, . Soon after Gardner Cowles moved to Des Moines, he pursuaded Harvey, Sr. to join the Des Moines Register to write editorials. Of course he has been deceased for some time, as have the Cowles. - o What all this is leading up to is that a week or so ago Velma Hagg and I went to the Historical rooms and a stalwart young man helped get my chair in. It was Stephen Ingham, son of Harvey, Jr. He mentioned William, his uncle, and Hepburn has been deceased several years. 9 0 It will be of further interest to learn the old Ingham home is still -standing, but homes would be more correct. The south part was moved to North Jones street, was purchased by the Mitchell family and is across the road from the Vaughn Risings. - o - The Raymon Henrys came to see me Oct. 16 and mentioned it was the thirtieth anniversary of their first date, back in Laplata, Mo. Betty said she hadn't wanted to go - apparently it was a high school affair - an old fashioned basket social. Raymon bought her basket, apparently nmnmnns B B u 8'innnr movie clock ALGONA THEATRE THURSDAY thru SATURDAY Complete Program begins: 7:009:05 p. m. "In The Heat Of The Night" - 7:15 - 9:20 p. m.

She has been a friend for such a long time - graduating together, going in a group consisting of Edna Norton (Ferguson), Mary Benjamin (McDade), Zada Brunson (Davis), Buena Reed (Dodge), and myself, partying together, camping together, and it was always Dot to whom we turned to arrange menus and all details. She was always so efficient and always such a willing worker. She will be greatly missed and I will close by saying I am glad to have known you so well, Dot.
