' This is on6 ef 'those weeks . wnen'theife seems, so far, to be little 6f Interest to write about. I Wish I Were on a Mediterranean dfutee' a la Marian Miller of the Des Molftes Register's "Over the Coffee'." I'd even settle fdr a lesser trip; 1 think I'm on the verge of the "mid-winter blues." Just overwhelmed with ennui. *' » - ••» • Last week's daily carried news of ek-Algonans. Dbrothy Gronan Thomas won* several 1 paragraphs "6n her cruise on the pirate ship Keith Campbell, son-in-law of Mr and Mrs Charles fox, was mentioned in connection with business projects at Sioux City, and O. F. Griffith, senior examiner in charge of an audit in'the Woodbury County auditor's office was mentioned. I am sure the initials are wrong. His name Is Earl. ' » *' * 1 A germ just doesn't have a chance in this home. A mother recently was visited by her son who was coming down with o cold. She avoids colds like the plaque and after he had gone, she carefully rinsed the water glass he used in stfalding water and washed the'.door knobs. I wonder if one sneaky gem'/ escaped. * * * ' As • Mrs C. R. McQuision says, "Don't forget to feed the birds." They are so hungry when ther is so much snow and poor pro spects of findng their own food • 'I.*'' * . Then there is the young lad; who broke her glasses in a man rier that prompted me to say '"She should be more careful it her drunken' moments." And I know the girl has never had anything stronger than a coke. Some time ago 25 couples or ganized a dancing party and a old age has crept on, slowly bu ruthlessly and relentlesly, they decided to use up the kilty anc have a final Whlng-ding-an adieu to youth so to speak. This grand finale took place Saturday even" ing at, the Plantation. (Oh, their aching feet) « » * • Mrs Hoy Hagg passed around some oranges she had received from her daughter Mrs Gene Thissen, St. Petersborg, Fla. They came through in fine shape but unfortunately a jar of honey placed in the center was broken. Dr Thissen, well known here, lives with his daughter Eleandr in St. Petersberg. • • * A short time before .Fern Foster left for Long Beach, Calif., she phoned me to get my cousin Melvin Henderson's address. I called her the other evening, to ask if she, got in contact with him. She replied she hadn't'time goes so fast, it takes such a lo of time to get from city to city because of conjested traffic, so we talked about her trip. It was made via jet and she has fallen in We with air travel- 28,000 feet up and 500 miles per hour She says the view above the clouds is beautfiul-just like float ing over cotton. The plane Was lowered sufficiently over Bryce canyon to get a good'view. The trip home with Ann Hanson was made via bus and was also enjoyable. They were guests of Mrs Mary Pratt one day and were joined by other Algonans, Hazel Lusby and daughter Marguerite DaJziel and Mrs Louise Mann. Hazel was planning to leave before long and will perhaps be iome before this reaches print. * * * During the recent remodeling of the kitchen here at Good Samaritan, a cupboard was torn out and there, lurking behind some part of it was a picture of personable young woman pro- jably in her twenties. The fash- on of her blouse, lace trimmed collar and . plume covered hat linted at life "gay nineties" era have a picture of my mother and her good friend Ada Stacy (Mrs Jim) clacUn'just Sttch „_„„. garments and I'd say it WAS 'fife en in 1600-02 ( ~I sent 'the to Mrs Ferguson' might be one of.'the Gall who lived in this house 1 .,,, ago.

Evalyn and Wallace McDougall started their vacation in a snow storm and according to weather report? they must have had snow all the way east. They drove to Clinton, then to Alorrison, 111 where they stopped to visit a>- unclo, Charles O'Harrow. From there it was probably better and the next visit was to be at Columbus, • Miss., with Evalyn's sister & family, Mr and Mrs Jay Kent. The rest of the nearly three weeks will be spent up and down the Florida coasts. • * « Claude Samson is happy to again be home following several weeks at St. Ann where he was taken after a fall in which he suffered a broken hip. He is making good recovery but a hip is slow to heal. X-rays will be taken again in March and I hope Claude can then begin getting on his feet. I've known him a long time and am interested in his recovery. You wouldn't believe how many calls it takes sometimes to get. an inch of news. But I am a pretty good blood hound and finally came up with the news or the marriage of Joan Scott and Julius Baas, Saturday, Feb. 4 at 4:30 o'clock, Rev. G. j. Gerike officiating.
