(la.) Upper DM MeinM Thurtday, Nov. 30, 1967 iiWiitiiiiiwniiiiiiiiiiiiinHiiniHimiHnHiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiwiiiiiwiHii Evelyn iiiuiwBiiiiinuiiiwiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiw^ And now we can look forward to Christmas. This place just hums with many activities ahead of the holidays. One thing I wish is that the Christmas music be delayed somewhat. By the time Dec. 25 gets here, I am so weary of Rudloph and his red nose (wonder if it ever gets runny) and Riding over the Snow with the Jingle Bells, and even the Little Town of Bethlehem and songs of that ilk get - what shall I call it? Moth eaten? It's about like having too many sweets. Charley Beringer was here yesterday calling on friends and dropped in to chat with me. When Mrs. Beringer's aunt Bertha was here, he was a faithful caller and frequently came to chat with me, too. He had such an interesting bit of news to tell me yesterday. I have met the son, Mark, a fine lad - though I should call him man now since he has graduated from Garrigan, then from St. John's College at College- vllle, Minn., and is now teaching French in the Fairmont school system, a language in which he majored. His vacation this summer was a two-month trip to Europe going via plane from Minneapolis, then to New York City and landing in Amsterdam, Holland. He purchased a motorcycle, going to Switzerland, and in Luxembourg he asked about l 9 i • 000000000 mr BBT movie i clock ALGONA THEATRE WEDNESDAY - Cinema Arts Film Festival.

Apparently there is a host of them, for Charley said, "It is as common as the Smiths and Joneses here." Charley still remembers a little of the language, but it is getting away from him due to non-use. It is a pity, for I think it is wonderful to know more than one language. He should talk with Mrs. Catherine Fisch who is a Luxem- bourger and still retains a bit of the accent, which I like to hear. * * * Mark spent some time in Germany and saw Louis Heinen, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ferman Heinen, who is in service. However, most of Mark's time was spent in France where he mingled and talked freely with the inhabitants. Isn't it wonderful the traveling one can do now and so much of it is being done. I often wonder how many come from abroad to see the United States. We have much to offer, too, but perhaps it is the lure of the old countries that has such an appeal. He came home for his Thanksgiving holiday and another guest was Alice Kain of DeKalb, ni. I might add that Charley is adding another year Nov. 27 so the November festive dinner could be said to include his important date. Speaking of the French language- Mark and David Passmore should get together. David is a French major, too, and they would have a lot of fun conversing. * * * I had two callers the other day whose visit was much too short. Two of the Sisters from St. Ann were here calling and I said I was glad to meet them HERE rather than at St. Ann. I don't wanna be sickl * * * For awhile it looked as though the Paul Schneiders would have only grandsons, but now girls are beginning to arrive to balance things and the latest addition is a daughter born Nov. 20 at the Belmond hospital to Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hartwig, the latter of whom was Patricia Schneider. Their home is at Kanawha. They had not named the little girl who has a brother, Randy, 3. * + * Just in case you might be interested - the eye is clearing up nicely, and I hope I never have another such occurrence. I have talked with several persons who have had the same thing happen. * * * A letter from my M»lvln Henderson's Gayle Klerullf says their little Kathryn, who was a year old Oct. 16, now travels around on her own two little feet. How quickly tots grow up and the biggest change is in the first year. * * * An ad I saw in the UDM showed a page of Christmas gift suggestions. The carrom board took me back to my youth when Lela Peck and her parents were our next door neighbors. Lelahad a board and if I had a dollar for every game we played, I could buy several acres of farm land! In case many of you do not know what a carrom board is, it's a varnished board with a rim around it and pockets at each corner. The wooden rings are of matching colors so you know which rings are your "men." Then you make a fist, use the middle Dnger to flip a "man" into a pocket. I don't remember whether we had a score to keep or whether the player was given as many chances as he could to put men in a pocket. I suppose the one who cleared the "deck" of his men first was the "winnah." We got such sore middle fingers we finally had the bright idea of shielding it with a thimble. On the opposite side was a checker board. I was never very good at that game but mother was a whiz. Got the knack from her father, Tom Henderson. He and Pete Purvis used to meet very frequently for games. When Annabelle Elbert said, "My, it's quiet here this morning." I told her she should have been here from 11 to 7 when Alice Jergens was on duty. It kept her going back and forth from a room at the front where there were three men, to a room midway where there are three more. They were restless and demanding, and noisy too, I might add. Poor Alice was trying to keep them quiet so the others wouldn't be awakened. I was sorry for her, but I was sorry for the men, too. They were the ones who cannot walk around and I know they get restless and nervous. It didn't bother me at all. I'm a good sleeper most of the time and I know the men wouldn't make undue disturbance if they realized things more. A rest home and a hospital are good places to learn tolerance, sympathetic understanding and patience. * + * November 23 - Thanksgiving dinner, a typical one with turkey and dressing, on down to cranberries and pumpkin pie with whipped cream. Time was when pumpkin pie was served with a slice of cheese. Then some one, bless whom ever it was, conceived the idea of whipped cream topping.

I don't know who gave them, but I'll say "thanks" for all of us. Also to Mrs. Buscher who had cookies wrapped In a paper napkin and a slip of paper with her name, but I don't know which Buscher. * * * I recall a Thanksgiving years ago while I was in high school. The girls I chummed with gave a dinner for our current swains and it was served at Edna Norton's (Ferguson). After a hearty meal at Bancroft at Aunt Eva and Uncle Bert Goddard's, I refrained from the supper she always served and thus arrived at the depot in Algona on the eight o'clock in reasonable condition for a second dinner. My date, Walter (Jock) Turner, and the rest of the gang were there to meet me - and so began an evening of fun. * * * A few went out for dinner with relatives- John Arndorfer, Pete Reding and Mrs. May Ramus. John gets a little perturbed whenever he is going anywhere — gets nervous if he isn't ready a long time before he is to be picked up, and I see a little of myself reflected in him. * * * A very good definition - Gossip: Ear pollution. SENECA I Mrs. Robert Fortney, organization leader for the Seneca Stars 4-H Club, and Mrs. Clarence Menz, project leader, attended a Food and Nutrition Training School, Wednesday at the Meeting Room at Algona. Mrs. Raymond Bergum and Mrs. Henry Looft attended the Conference Workshop of the American Lutheran Church Women of the Emmetsburg Conference Wednesday at the North and South Bethel Churchs, Graettinger. Mrs. Bergum, local auxiliary president of the Blakjef LCW attended the forum for local chairmen while Mrs. Looft, conference chairman, conducted the forum for local radio chairmen. Field Fire Algona firemen were called to a field along the Irvington blacktop, one-fourth of a mile east of highway 169 at 5:08 p.m. Sunday. There was no report of damage. Car Blaze Algona firemen were called at 5 p.m. Saturday when the engine of an auto driven by Roger Menneke, Algona, caught fire near the intersection of Call and Wooster streets. Damage was very slight. A beautiful idea for Christmas giving . . . and so practical, too! The petite Princess phone has a lighted dial that glows softly in the darkness, brightens for easy dialing. And she'll like the new heavier non-skid base. Order now—just call the telephone business office, or ask any telephone employee.
