- Mf and Mrs Theodore Hutchison have • returned from a few weeks visit in California and Ari- Zflna and, seeing so many ex-Al- .fionans, it was almost' like old home week. They spent most of -the;time at San Jose,-Calif, with their ison-in-law and daughter, ,'Mf and Mrs John Carroll, and their son Tom Hutchison, a student at Stanford University. In the Los Angeles area they saw Ross Quinby arid at Upland they called on Mel and Leeta Menderson. They als6 saw Mr and Mrs -George Boswell who run a motel. At Torrence, they visited with their niece, Nancy Hutchison, and husband, Norman Newton and family and at Tucson, Ariz, they visited with Helen's brother, Jim Murtagh and family and niece, Joanne Hutchison; . ,'V ; ; .•* ••-' * . : » Mrs L. R. Walker has returned from Chicago, where she spent' a few Weeks ; .with -. her daughter. .Pefirt. She'says the grass was .turning green there and it was | quite disappointing to reach ;home and find so much snow. '. • '*•»•" ••»•.» .- • • . ' The^Q.W. Naylors attended the bowling tournament at Daven- .port but .were not able to get around and see the interesting places. I asked about them seeing the arsenal in particular as we muskateers always'go there' and /enjoy it so much. Too bad they were there in a season not conducive 1 to roaming in the parks and driving to Credit Island. « » * While Leora St. John is at St. Ann hospital* her pet cat Susie Nuisance is being cared for .by Mrs Martin Becker and Mrs Mike .Loss. Mrs Gilles is a rather fre- ' quent visitor at Mrs St. John's ,and she believes Susie knows her for the other day when she pass- •ed.the house on her way to a circle meeting, Susie met her on. the walk, turned in at the house, . /went to the porch door and meo- •-"wed to be let in. Mrs Gilles un- .derstood the feline language, opened the porch door, arranged . a rug in the'corner for Susie to 'curl up on, and we hope Susie -had a good nap. Poor Susie pro' bably wonders why Leora has abandoned her. '•' • • * '. * . * Mrs Albert Hagg says her yard has been swarming with robins and she loves it. She counted 18 there the other morning. Mine has called a couple of times and has shared food I've put out; for sparrows. » * .,» Mrs Orval Joseph feels she has aged'and added gray hairs following an incident she doesn't ;warit repeated^ She had put two t^ear old -Jerry on »ihe < *ed*'and 'figured he was irra safe spot 'for awhile. Later checking proved the contrary for somehow he had gotten hold of her nurse, opened a Turns package and had consumed four or five. A hurried call to a doctor, following his advice to make the child retch, and no bad results. She is thankful it wasn't aspirin. • . * * » I had occasion to call Mrs S, E. McMahon about a name the other day. She came up with it instantly and got to reminiscing about old Algonans. She said not long ago she was looking through some old party lists and (found one of 1900 when 70 women were her guests. Of the group, she is the only one living. Quite a record. Mrs McMahon will soon be 89 years YOUNG. * » * Mrs Maltie McWhorter had callers yesterday — Mr and Mrs Frank Ryerson of Burt who returned that day from Citra, Pla., near Occala where ' they had visited since Feb. 17 with their son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs W. J. Crosby. * • • The class of 1911 is thinking of having a fiftieth anniversary reunion. I don't know just how far it has progressed but I hope it materialized. That wasn't my class but it would bring to Algona many whom I know and hope would call on me. * » » Another of those small world stories has bobbed up, one which I think is of extra Interest because the parties had not seen each other in nearly 20 years. Dr, and Mrs Ralph Carpenter, Marshalltown, son-in-law and daughter of Mrs S. E. McMahon, were at Notre Dame, Ind., not long ago visiting with 'their daughter. They w^re staying nearby and one day the doctor was approached by a man who said, "Aren't you the Dr. Carpenter who was in Cairo years ago? Well, I was your bus boy.", Dr. Carpenter was in service and abroad at tne time of t)ie historic meeting between Roosevelt,, Churchill, ana Stalin. * * . * Also on a trip Mrs McMsbon had with her son Maurice, Minneapolis, they wqre in a ca,fe at Albuquerque and two men at n nearby table overheard a part of their conversation. One man had lived in Algona, knew the Dr.. Cretzmeyer family and the other man wan from Whittemore and said he hpd married a West Bend girl. Mrs :McMahon did not recall their naraes, Mary Bwser. » relative of Mrs L> W. Jphnspn, Irvington, reports Mrs Johnson also has a lemon tree three yews old that is bearing fruit. Mary says the lemon has a beautiful color ancji I gather It is the only\hyd'' the trSe has bourne. Why doesn't some out experiment with in -orange- • .'- John ind Cora Thompson are back from a vacation in Florida where they visited with John's brother and sister-in-law, Mr-and Mrs James Thompson at St. Petersburg. They flew from Mason Gity and returned the same way. I asked Cora how she liked flying, "Oh Wonderful," she replied, "It's the brtly way!" The tern* perature was in the 80s most'.of the time, summer clothes worn, and only one day of rain.' * • « frank and Hazel Vera are back from a vacation in Ph6enix, Ariz, with their daughter ElVie and three little boys-well, not so little for the oldest Ted, is 12, the rtext one Joe, 10, and youngest, Tom, is 7. My land! Where does time go? Hazel spent a day with Mabel Livingston at Apache Junction and had a fine time talking about Algona people and the old home town. The Veras also were in Texas, visiting with 'Hazel's aUnt and her husband, Mr and Mrs Rufus Jones. Mrs Jones will be remembered here as ElVie Lane, En route home they stopped at a little town. near Enid, Qkla., pulled up for gas, and there beside them were ex-Al* gonans, Mr and Mrs Ralph Brown, Fort Dodge. You just «ah't beat this small world game! » * *. This is being written the week before Easter. Soon the airways will-be full of "Easter Bonnet"oh it's really "Easter Parade" 1 guess, but it has to do With bonnets more than anything, * » , * This lad was slightly confused. "After bidding a fond farewell to his family and leaving for a professional convention, a father learned that his five-year-old son knelt .to his evening prayers with the words, "Our Father, which art in Atlantic City—" ' > « * * 1 hope by the time this reaches print Leora St. John will be home from St. Ann hospital and able to feet around very well. She suffered a cracked vertabra awHile ag£> When arising from her bed. For-a few weeks she was able to' get around quite well but when the pain increased, she was hospitalized and put in a body cast. She was'very cheerful and quite comfortable when I talked with her a few days ago. » » » I don't know who did the work. but the Jim Allen car had It's face lifted after a collision a few weeks ago and a dent and scai Was left on the driver's side. Since the "surgery" the car doesn't show any damage What so ever. A fine job of rejuvenating. An- would that "spare parts" . could be had for the human body and old faces made new! I'd have a complete over-hauling! *..«...» Mrs Josie Thompson observed her eighty-seventh birthday Saturday, March 25. The customary Good Samaritan festiviles Were held on her floor, cake and a beverage being served and the birthday song to open the occasion. 30 Named To Honor Roll At Swea City High Swea City — The honor roll for the third, nine week period for the Swea City Community School was released this week: Seniors, A, Ronnie Linde, Roger Johnson, Carmen Lnrsen, Gleri(.ion Peterson, Bev Thorson; B, Elmer Abbas, Maurice Anderson, Richard Blair, Pani Fagerlund, Richard Farland, Connie Opsal, Mike Stewart.

Pictures Work Wonders When Used In Home It's springtime, and you wan) to give your home a new look Doing it with pictures is one ot the simplest and most effective ways, says Avis L. Lcttow, Kossuth county extension home economist. Just think for n minute about how much you can do with pictures — or how much pictures can do for you. Pictures can add color to ti room. They can add interest to a wall, corner or hallway or help focus attention on an important wall space, A grouping of pictures can be used to hide a cracked or rough wall. They can give a furnished look to a room having only n little furniture. Pictures con express personal taste. They can, add to knowledge, since a picture really expresses an idea. Children can understand stories from pictures long before thoy can read and should be given more opportunities for enjoyment and growth through pictures, Miss Lettow believes. Pictures can aid in emotional development; they may satisfy some need. For instance, they may be uplifting or inspiring. They can bring pleasure — tiie ability to enjoy pictures may help us see some part of the beauty the artist sees. And of course, good pictures help cultivate a love of beauty which makes our lives richer. No one picture can do all these thinRs at otice, nor would you want it to. But you might decide what you want a picture to do for you or your family and choose accordingly. You might change or rotate pictures when you feel the need for a change. With the color reproductions available today, there is no reason for any home to have uninteresting walls, Miss Lettow concludes.
