•Algeria (|q.) Upper De» Moiftes Thursday, Nov. 19, 1964 Not to be out-done by Linda Schmidt, who found violets recently near her home, Lois Bentele, Wesley, sent me a bouquet Nov. 4 via her sister, Darlene. Thank you, too. A breath of spring In the fall Is nice. * * * I am "swinging down the lane" again - boll completely vanished and life Is again worth living I It was a well behaved one, gave me no trouble at all except when the pressure of my crutch made It say "No" very vigorously. * * * From the Presbyterian bulle- ten came this Interesting bit of Information, which will set many of us right: The word "Protestant" does not mean "to protest against" as Is often thought to be the case. It comes from two Latin words, pro and tes- taro which means "to testify for." As applied to members of the original movement,'therefore, It meant "One who bears witness to his faith", or "One who testifies that he has had an Inner spiritual experience." * * * I was sorry to read of the death by too many sleeping pills of Sammee Lee who played In "Bachelor Father" with John Forsythe some time ago and of late with Mickey Rooney. His role showed him as an amusing little fellow with quick wit. * * * The Adrian Sterlings are look- Ing forward to a visit In early November from their son-in-law and daughter, Jeanette, Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Miller, Costa Mesa, Calif. Grace Jackman dropped In the other day to let me read a letter she had from Florence Patterson Howard, Phoenix, Aria. "Pat" was one of my first friends and was neighbor for many years. Grace has sent her some of my "Tidbits" and Pat had expressed pleasure In reading them. Remember our deal, Pat, years .ago? You did my German prose for a year and I wrote your Thanksgiving story and got you an A? * * * When I was trying to swat an obnoxious fly the other day for some reason this came to my mind. Mr. B. F. Crose used to say to Lucille's nice little black cocker spaniel, "You obstreperous canine", all In fun of course, for Don was anything but a noisy, loud doggie, though he did a little begging at the table, as any canine will do. Odd, Isn't It, how some little thing like that sticks In one's mind. * * * Mrs. Paul Dettman Is home from a visit of a month In California, from the south to the north, and she thinks It Is a beautiful country, "But give me Iowa to live In" she concluded. * * * Rev. Morz of the Presbyterian church gave us a very good message Nov. 29. As a purely personal suggestion, when callers come before our stated hour, 2 p. m., It would be considerate and nice If they would remain very quiet.

Callers are welcomed, don't get me wrong, but we residents do want our bit of church, too. * + * Sandra, seven year old daughter of Mr. anx Mrs. Pete Jorgenson, wasn't trying to do "the man on the flying trapeze" act the other day, but she did "fly" over the handle bars of her bicycle when going down the hill near where their new home is being built. She suffered a slight concussion, was out of school a day and hated to go back with a scarred face. But she is 0. K. now and henceforth will be more careful, her mother hopes. * * * Mabel Paxson has a private phone in her room, It was Installed as a surprise by members of her card clubs and other friends. * * * When I mentioned the Anderson butcher shop last week, I forgot to mention the barrels of pickles that sat around. Especially good were the mixed ones with cauliflower and onions added. Cartons were different than now. Then they were sort of square, the sides folded to make a top and the handle was of wire. Remember ? * * * Mrs. Ed Hough was here the other day. It had been some time since I had seen her, though we have talked over the phone frequently. I was reminded of the time mother and I sold, by mistake, a picture Hazel and Roy Keen had stored In our barn along with some things of my grandmother Henderson. We were having a sale and Mrs. Hough bought the picture. It had been years since we had seen my grandmother's things, and the Keens' things somehow got mixed with grandmas. Well, we phoned Mrs. Hough, got the picture back only to discover It was only the frame Hazel wanted and Mrs. Hough only wanted the picture. I guess they never did get together on It. * * * to the principals, l am sending It .to Leeta Henderson who also enjoyed them and we had such fun listening to them together when mother and 1 were in Pomona years ago. * * * Thanks to "Dutch' 'Hohsbruch, each resident here and all the nurses and aides were treated Halloween to a doughnut and apple. His assistants were "Shiek" Rex Post and little Stevle Smith. The doughnut went very well with my coffee the following morning. * * * I hope Judge Stlllman, his son- in-law, Dan Jones of La Crosse, Wis., and Dan's father, Fred of Sioux City, don't get arrested for shooting pheasants out of season. Until I get my schedule a little better in mind, tenses are a little confusing, so I suppose if worse come to worst, I can go ball or something for the three. However, I assure you, the men were doing nothing Illegal. * * * ed down from 49 and would be considered quite a "bargain" and automatically more and more people would come under the influence of matrimony. Rebuilt old maids who had never before been asked to wed by anybody (except their parents) would soon be married to old bachelors in their nighties, pardon, nineties, who have also had most of the body-squeaks eliminated from their chassis. One Is "never too old to yearn" you know. On your birthdays, your friends wouldn't know your age or how many times to spank, so those birthday spankings would cease, thereby saving the annual wear and tear on your friends' hands, etc. - Well, anyhow, It's "food for reflection" as the goat said as it ate the looking-glass." * * * . It was nice seeing Grace French a few days ago. It has been some time since I had seen her and was not prepared to see her so svelte. She has lost some pounds via the gall bladder upset route, quite a common thing now days, and while I'd like to take my belt In quite a few Inches, I don't want to do U the hard way. * * * Maude Dorweiler told me her sister, Bess, Mrs. Budd Lawson and husband, have already gone to their Florida home at Dunedln already, i mentioned having ,seen Bess a few weeks .'ago. She was very-thin and Maude told me Bess, 'under doctors orders, has a malted mllkjit bed time. Ah - a chocolate malt wouldn't be hard to take I » * * Norman Plngel was vlalted here recently by his niece, Mrs. Otto Johnson and two daughters of Ft. Dodge. Mrs. Johnson has a sister whose birthday is the same as hers - both "May Baskets", being born Just two years apart. Of course, you know May Basket day is the «rst day of that month. * * * I think I mentioned the cute program on radio years ago '"Vic and Sade". In a recent issue of a T; V. program for the week I read an Interesting account of what had happened Also had Bess Hopkins and Marie Hawcott in for awhile. Somehow our talks always get around to diamonds of which we are very fond. We found we are now surfeited, each possessing s,ome nice specimens and contentment Is wonderful. * * * From a headline "County Now a Tlnderbox as High Heat and Low Humidity Continue, "• followed by an item on the excessive heat In Los Angeles, It was nice to read Melvln Henderson's notation In the margin - "Oct. 21 It has cooled off now and begins to feel like fall." * * * Abner Long has been such a good correspondent and then to not hear from Mm for so long, I got a little worried about the outcome of his eye surgery and wrote his son Jack at Cedar Rapids to learn the "lay of the land", 'i am glad to report' from Jack's reply that it was perfect In every respect'' ind Nov. 9 he went back to Iowa' City to have glasses fitted, He has been In Davenport by himself for six weeks and had been with Jack and his family three weeks. He and Jack made a trip to New Hampton recently to seeAbner'ssister-ln-lawRuth Jackson and husband, Mr. .Achilles. He took the bus from Cedar Rapids back to Davenport and keeps up with his Klwanls, Hl-12 and other Masonic activities. Even attended a Republican dinner when Nixon spoke. But like me, the political outcome would not please him. * * * The expression "Be yourage" should be changed to "Beat your age." Under legalized Birthday Control, a person could be mark- Dick Post is glad he doesn't have to pay the phone bill $24,65 run up by a long talk with his friend, Jon Stormquist, a "buddy" he hears from' every now and then. They had a chat most satisfactory. Dick got the call about midnight. Dick served overseas in World War n and has a yen to go back over the same area. He would like to talk wife Lavonne into going, but she says there are so many places here in the U. S. A. she'd like to see first. I told Dick if I weren't so tied up with arthritis, I'd go with him gladly and I'd be sure of a protector from the suave Frenchmen and Italians who I am sure would surround me t * * * How frequently some small circumstance changes destinies and the knowledge of horses had a major part In bringing to pass a thing Bruce McCullough wanted very much - acceptance at Hebron Academy in Maine. He had been east with a national student group and was much Impressed by the country and prep school set-up. it la almost impossible to gain entrance, for sons are enrolled almost at birth by many families. Bruce was Introduced to Prof. Emeritus Dr. Boyden of Deerfleld, and the talk In some way got around to horses, a hobby of Dr. B. Bruce, also a horse enthusiast, but not the same breed as the doctor's, and such an Impression was made, Or. B. used his Influence and Bruce was entered at Hebron. Not only that, he has made the football team. He admits one has to study very hard, but he loves the whole set-up. His mother was worried about a lad only 17 being so far from home, the possibilities of roaming in New York City, but husband Bob pointed out that if the Call brothers could come out here to this wild country and live near Indians, surely Bruce was safe, The Call brothers were not very old when they came west - but I am moved to remark New York has a lot of "savages", but we'll keep our fingers crossed for Bruce's safety and are glad for him his aim has been achieved. * * * ' The fooll "Bigamist: Man who has taken one too many."
