(le.) Upper 0«$ Moint* thursday, Jan. 11, 1968 iiinnitiiiiiiiiimiiiiinitniiiiiiiiiiniiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiminn - Continuing with Christmas messages, from Sherri Baker a card telling me - o - The Harold Jergensons, Aurora, Col., have a son, Kent, in service and they had an anxious two months when they didn't hear from him. Fortunately, he was O.K. Phil was home from Mesa College. Richard, the youngest still at home, has been doing some skiing. The club he belongs to charters a bus or can take a ski train. His club recently had a fish dinner, so he sounds like a lad having fun. As for Connie herself, she is working at Temple Buell College as receptionist and secretary and enjoying it very much. Harold keeps busy and has announced he is going on a diet. Connie is a bit skeptical and doesn't look for it to last. Becky and Janet, both married, live in California and close enough together that they see each other often. Little Lisa and Michelle loVe playing together just as Becky and Janet did. - o - The Don Hutchisons said it was cold in Tucson and there was some snow. Dr. and Mrs. Scan- Ian, former Algonans, were en- route to Houston to see their daughter Virginia and phoned them but they don't know where the Scanlans landed as radio announcements were that highways were closed because of the storm. Joanne, who makes her home in Tucson, loved the snow, but the parents have seen so much of the Iowa variety, they couldn't honestly say they were happy about the weather. Jim Murtagh, who suffered a stroke not long ago, is making very good recovery, but his wife has had surgery and at the time of the writing was in the hospital. They were joined by Don's sister, Isabel, and husband Quincy Drummond, who flew from Palm Beach, Fla. and spent a week with them. - o - Mrs. Gilles' niece of Evansville, Ind. sent gifts to both of us. Her mother, Mrs. Gilles' sister-in-law, is also in a nursing home and not very well. - o - Hazel Lusby was back from California where she spent a month with her daughter, Marguerite Dalziel, and said on her card, "Had to come home to get warm." Her card was of two teams of horses hauling a stagecoach full of gifts. I still love horses and on some of our trips to Davenport we'd see a horse and exclaim about it. Years ago it was an automobile that would cause exclamations. - o - Mattie Dewel Thorpe, how I enjoyed your card and note. Memories 1 How they flood one's mind, and indeed I do remember that hard floor! I also remember the misgivings I had about the subject the floor covered, and it took a talk on mother's lap to get me straightened out. - o - Jean Cady Lawson of Mason City wrote she and husband Murray were involved in an elaborate program with songs and costumes as part of their church program and a Messiah at the Methodist church, Dec. 24. "And then a long winter," she adds. Enclosed was a picture of Mark, kindergarten age. A handsome little fellow with a winsome smile. - o And now to acknowledge cards with just names - Hattie Burlingame, Hugh Black and family, "Tillie" Hargreaves, Lora Seger, Mabel Hutzell, Joan Post, Lizzie Post, Glenn Naudain and the W.S.C.S. Methodist church. Some accompanied gifts, but I won't go into that, for if I enumerated the list, it would be very long. So I will Just say "Thank you" to each of you, and as I said before Santa must have figured I was a "good girl" judging from the numerous gifts I received. A very Happy New Year to all of you. •> o In going through the cards to re-read, I wonder if I missed the very nice one from Ruth and Jerry Lewie with its appropriate printed material. And Un't it strange that two identical Currier and Ives cards came from eueii widely located towns- Morning" from Mamie Cady, Houston, Tex., and Dr. and Mrs. Lyle Ellis, Hartford, Conn. - o - I was so sorry to hear via radio of Ida Leffert's death and extend to her husband Dave and daughter na and relatives, my sympathy. I worked in the recorder's office and she was in the auditor's office many years. - o I was interested in this item from the Register in the Emmetsburg exchange department: "Holiday guests in the Dr. R. W. Heise home are Mr. and Mrs. Chris Heise and family of Westminster, Calif." Chris, son of the R. W. Reinhold Heise's, was named for his grandfather whom many will remember. And Reinhold, being a classmate of mine and many others here, made the item of interest. And now it can be told, after all these years. The parents of one of the girls in "our crowd" didn't approve of the romancing their daughter and Reinhold were having, so we got around it by having Reinhold pick me up, a lad the family did approve of pick their daughter up, then we'd switch at the party. Don't tell me my generation wasn't smart. The joke is on the parents, long deceased, for Reinhold turned out a man to be proud of. Was even mayor in Emmetsburg and as a lad there was absolutely no revson for prejudices. Parents are odd persons sometimes. - o Someone asked me the other day who the librarian was before Kitty Phillips. At the time I couldn't remember, then it came to me - Beth Annis. Now I can't recall who asked me so she'll have to read this column for her reply. Is there anyone else in my category of forgetting ? - o - We had some very pretty, novel napkin holders on our Christmas trays. They were made by the women at the new home and were of green and red felt, sequin trimmed, and encircling a paper napkin with appropriate printing. Also, bottle caps held tiny white candles and a bit of greenery from a pine tree. They were on our trays at another time. - o - I didn't count the carolers who came, but thanks to all. Some were from out of town and they came in all ages, large and small, young and some older youths and all filled with the spirit of Christmas. - o - Goodness, I almost forgot two very important Christmas events. Telephone calls from my cousin Gayle Henderson Kierulff, Glendale, Calif., and Maggie Pannkuk, Fairmont. Isn't it wonderful to talk so clearly, as though they were right in the room ? Now just wait till someone adds a gadget so we can see the party, too. - o - I am in complete agreement with the man who said to another, "I like the old days best- I was younger then." "" ADV.

The covered wagon—Conestoga was a rugged wagon that helped early settlers reach the West. Bigger and tougher than most wagons, its framework was built of solid oak or ash, with thin sides of poplar. Curved downward in the middle to keep the load from slipping and shifting; this was especially helpful in fording rivers, and when traveling fast to outspeed attacking Indians or animals. The Conestoga, chuck wagon and other wagons of the past can he seen at the Harold Warp Pioneer Village at Minden, in south central Nebraska. r
