I went into Ihe hall to say "Hello" to him and said, "Get out the flute, Harry and I'll get out my violin and we'll make music!" And now that's not a joke'in a Way, for we did make music together years ago in a nice little orchestra. Some of Ihe other personnel included Fcrnley Nieou- lin, Jennie Christenseh, George Spongberg, Tom Gillespie, some of the lime on Iraps and some of Ihe lime Frank Oslrum. Ah Those were Ihe days! - * • i • Curious about Caroline Kennedy's hamslers I consulled my dictionary but the word was nol given, so I called Dr. Howarc Gibson who told me they are of the mouse family, larger, shorter lailed, vari-eolored and very prolific raising several lillers pel year, as many as 12 in a liller. They make nice pels, if one is inclined to that paricular specie. * » • Some time ago I reported Jim my Sires, had lost his bike. It was taken from in front df Hawkeye Lanes and was missing for weeks. Awhile ago it was discovered back'of Cook's welding shop and to say Jimmy is happy is expressing it mildly. He figures some lad was in a hurry to get home, borrowed the bike and didn't want to let him know about it so put it where it was certain to be found. 4 * * Friends and I were talking about losing things and being happily surprised at finding them later. I wish I'd be as lucky *•• ( as one, of the women who mentioned Iwo lost hats.

'Saw the big craters and Mount Loa's peak. It had a slight eruption since we \vere there. Quite a sight I guess. Come from all over the world to see the spectacular. Big Island is very tropical.

Hope I get to see them some time. * * - * A card from another vacation? ing friend came Mar. 10 from Maggie Pannkuk, who with her husband Clarence is in Clearwater, Fla. I mentioned' before that she had fallen and suffered a .broken arm just a few days before "take off." She wrote, "I had hard luck the Friday Jjefore we left-fell on ice and broke my (eft arm just above the wrist. Was in the hospital till Tuesday and left Thursday for Florida.

Ruth McMahon had made a train birthday cake for her grandson Michael Chapman, son of Mr ana Mrs James Chapman of Eagle Grove and she and husband Roy Were going down to help him ce- lebcfite his third birthday. Came the snow and plans were canceled. Also a cake was to bo taken to mother Judy who was having a few friends in to help celebrate her son's anniversary. Well, the lovely confetti and fluffy iced cake was taken over to Mr and Mrs Everett Anderson whose twenty-sixth wedding anniversary had Come Up. Helen put it away td share with son Phil when he came from DCS Moinos for the week end, so you see the old saying holds good, "It's an ill wind that blows nobody good." Or maybe I have misquoted it, it's "any good." * * * So many of our good citizens have located in Phoenix, Ariz., re Was like, "old home week" when Mr and Mrs JoHn McGuire reached there after a visit at Port Huenem'e,' Calif., with their' son Terry and his wife. Terry is being released from service sooner than expected and will be home shortly after this reaches print. He will be associated with his father in road construction work.

C. Me- Dougall. Jay looks so much like Bob did when I knew him years ago, it took me back to some wonderful times. Kristine is 6, Jay 4 and Andy 1. They live at Menasha, Wis., but Bob is being transferred to Minneapolis, which is happy news. They will be so much closer it will be possible to have family "get-togethers" more frequently. Evalyn is going 1 to spend a few days at Mason City with her brother and sister-irt- law Jay nnd Evelyn Tubbesing and Is then going to Morrison, 111., to be with an Uncle Charles O'Harrow for awhile. » . * * ' I'll bet this was Bill Nugent. Quoting from Gordon Gammack's cloumn "At a farewell party for him -on his retirement, a Des Moines man who had to report for work at 6:45 a.m. for years remarked; "There'll be an alarm clock breaking at 5 o'clock tomorrow morning. I'm taking a hammer to bed with me and when that alarm goes off, WHAM!!!" : * * * Mr and Mrs Earl Miller have been visited by their son Bill who has been at the Eilson air base, Alaska. He will leave Mar. 24 for Dover, Del., driving his recently purchased Car. I .told his mother she and I should be in the back seat just to take ia the country. I am interested in the east coast but -hardly think I'll ever make it there. Inez Wolfe had such a wonderful vacation trip to the coast, up into Canada and through the Evangeline country. I envy her too. * * • I have just completed a chat with Frances Eason who is flat on her back at St< Ann hospital with a fractured .hip. With her usual good sense, she is meeting the situation calmly and -with fortitude. It will be. about three months before she will be able to walk again, but three months will pass quickly and this is a time when she wants tempus to fugit. * * • * To close with a smile—"With some Hollywood stars, the Golden Rule appears to be,' "Thou shalt love one, another and another—" Mnrch 10, at 7:30 p.m. the wedding of Ardilh Irene Brandt, daughter of Mr and Mrs Haflej- Brartdt, and Neal Robert Loes^ chen, son of Mr and -Mrs Albert Loeschen, was solemnized .in the Good Hope Lutheran church in Titonka.
