J-Algona (la.) Upper DM Moln« Tuesday, Dee. 19, 1967 Evelyn I know now Santa and his helpers are working overtime in his shop for the signs are more evident each day. A big tree stands in the hall, decorated within an inch of its piney life, and I must say the girls, with the help of Bill Kading and his wife, have done a very grxxl job. And, of course, the other two floors have trees, too. - o - Added to this is a new planter arrangement — white and pink poinsettias with some greenery of course, and while artificial, it's very pretty. Thanks go to Hertha Uati who takes charge of the seasonal arrangements. and on hotter days we have the nice big trees they sit under. I never join them in either place so I don't know what momentous discussions take place. - o - Further evidence of the approaching holiday is the daily arrival of greeting cards. I have acknowledged two, so will go on from there. From Mr. and Mrs. William Cook, a very pretty winter scene, fir trees and falling snow. Edna Stebbins, Pomona, Calif., said she went shopping and didn't need a coat. Poinsettias bloom profusely and I know, for I have seen them there. Also, saw a large area growing them commercially and covered in tent fashion under white cloth. Presumably a frost protection, for it DOES get cold, in witness whereof are the smudge pots I remember. I suppose they are a thing of the past since the many groves have been destroyed to make room for housing, much to my disgust. From Pocahontas came a card from my cousin, VinnieStoddard. I wrote her recently and am wondering if she misses the warmth of Wichita. I don't believe she does. She is a native lowan. - o - Becky Jergenson, Mrs. D. E. Patty, Costa Mesa, Calif., says she is very busy and little Michelle is "helping". She wonders how her mother, Connie Merryman Jergenson (Mrs. Harold), could cope with five youngsters when one keeps her so occupied. - o - Evalyn McDougall wrote from Mason City and mentioned the melodeon. And the cycle of her life, for as I have mentioned, she is back where she and "Mac" were married. She recently saw my cousin Julia Cady at P.E.O. A card and letter from my cousin, Gayle Henderson Kierulff, Glendale, will require a long letter, too. This will be a wonderful Christmas for their little Kathryn - one year old last October, and I'd like to be there to see her reactions to all the things her doting relatives will be bestowing on her. Little Michelle Patty is another one I'd like to see. I still maintain Christmas Is more for the children, especially while they still believe in Santa Claus. - o - I have received notice I will be getting Arizona Highways and Unity from the Willis Bradleys of Minneapolis and Lucille Anderzen of Los Angeles, respectively. Thank you, my friends. I enjoy both. - o - A card from Maggie Pannkuk said she would write a letter after Christmas but right now she was swamped with getting greeting cards out. It was lucky Rose Mesing had her address on the envelope, otherwise I'd be wondering who had sent me an unsigned card. I think it was nice she didn't, for it gave me a chance to have a nice chat with her and I know her omission was because she had so many to send, she just forgot. - o - It didn't take me long to read a book I received, but it was full of good material, some on the serious side, some laugh giving, and I enjoyed it very much. - o - And another wonderful addition is a gas heater for the porch. On the milder days the men can go there and get such a wonderful view of the outdoors. In summer it is used a great deal, FOR PLUMBING HEATING COOLING INSTALLATION - REPAIR OR REMODELNG WE'RE AT YOUR SERVICE Phone 295-2104 LAING Plumbing-Heating-Cooling 12 No. Dodge, AJgona A card from Hazel Lusby, who went to Corona Del Mar to visit her daughter Marguerite, showed residences with low fences, behind which were blooming flowers, and even on the space between the sidewalks and road. She will be home Dec. 17 and will be met at Des Moines by her son-in-law and daughter, Eugene and Irene Hutchins. She made the trip both ways via plane. Fog entered into the picture when she went out. I hope conditions are normal for the return trip. * •H- •K * * * * •H•K * * * •H- * •X- * * •Jf •H- Join our Christmas Club now FEEL REALLY HO-HO-HO NEXT YEAR I ^3^ SAVE 50c to $10 weekly for 50 weeks in our Christmas Club ... have up to $500 for jolly, bill-free spending this time next year.

Quoting from a bulletin, "The Durant sisters were not members of our church, but the gift speaks the fact that they were interested in what the church stands for." - o - A card and note from Zaida Dingley Nugent contained a message which makes me want to talk with her. We'd have a lot of ground to cover and I am going to write her a letter soon covering some of the subjects. Her sense of humor has always been a delight and her husband Bill is surely salt of the earth. - o - A call from Claris Kresensky and Ruth Lewis, the latter leaving a Christmas "representative", and good reading material from both. - o - Bless you, Glenn Naudain, Rock Hill, S.C., for the personalized ball point pens. You must have been psychic for I was running low and would soon have been in need of just such an article. - o - From Scottsdale, Ariz, came an invitation to dinner at Emmetsburg. Well, I don't know what if s all about, but I know I am not in the market for Arizona property and unfortunately I have mislaid the whole thing, so 1 can't give you as detailed an account as I should, but needless to say, I am NOT attending the dinner but were I the gay young person I was once, I'd probably attend just to get the pitch of the whole thing. Oh yes, the food would be of interest, too I - o - And now to more serious business — working the cross word puzzles in a book Florence Beardsley sent me - printed in 1941. - o - A word to the wise I Employer to stunning secretary, "You understand the job is temporary ? As soon as my wife sees you, you're through."
