4-Afflflrtfl (ia.) Upptf DM MfltnM Thursday, April 13, 196! " *Ai Algdnah whose name got in the Register was KoWard Wahlefs who had won local contests in duck calling and were to "quack" for the Iowa Sports shbw at the Veterans Auditorium, Des Molnes. s Some tempting prizes were listed. Now just how the judging was to be done is a mystery to me, How many ducks respond? 4 * * Which brings up an interesting tale I heard Thursday evening When Delia and Merle .'Moxley were here to shpwi/nie the: picture Bob Cannes' todk of the Ca- dettes when they took part in the recent school program at the Veterans AUditoriUni, Des Moines. Since this Good Samaritan Home is an old residents built.'75 'years ago by Ambrose Call for his family of six children, .and having looked at my* fireplace,-Delia was reminded of a fireplace in her mother, Mrs?Mamie Frankl's home which in the . 80's was known as the LiiM {arm. Aii- cording to Delia, • who iwas la small .child whea.thjs happened, a caller was th>re 'in ttifc, early 30's and introduced *erifel'f as $ Billings girl whose \famijy hdd; built the house' back around Civil; War times."SJie sHd she Was "Mb!, Brown" of Chicago,,; dfji ;tha famous foods canned Tinderl that name-jams and pickles .being, hei'i specialty. One .robni'iif particular intrigued her for-as"<£ child -ShS tioned the Organizing the G.A.R. Further inquiry into this revealed the date was 1878 at Welllngt6n, Minn. # * : * Until a few days ago 1 did not know that ,Ruth Phillips was musical. She has a chord organ and played a'hymn for me the other day, a la telephone. It was played Well and the tone is nice. « • » * Speaking of music, I enjoyed hearing "Pony Boy" on the Will Rogers program a few nights ago, That, was very popula'r back in 1912 and was a prime favorite with a dear friend of mine, Elizabeth Libolt, now of Los Angeles. . * * » In this day of quick marriages and even quicker divorces, espe-, daily among movie personalities, it is nice to know Vilma Banky and Rod L.a Roque have been married to' 'each other' 35 years. Years • ago she performed with the great lover Valentino in "Son of' the Shiek" and a, lovely blond she was. Agnes Ayers played with him in the first big hit."The $Hiek". What a show' that was ^ was never perjtnitted, to Center -ft. It was her father's , deif or Office and the room', is now in use 'itis,._a utility room. She 'Went to trie,to£ floor too and remerijbered gj toW- er that was',' torn •' down ^sohie years ago.

Hats off to Delia, too. Going back to coyer some -points brought up by Delia, the Billings land had been .homesteaded by a Thompson family &nd tWo'of the cotton wood trees on the .place were , planted there j^airs , ago/ Iri ' , , remodeling the Billings' ( den, vquare headed nails : Were found, n common type of nail years ago, nnd cached between wialls was in old newspaper '•' which men- and what a book! « n « * : It look a lot of patience I think to make the cute little egg things "Tillie" Hargreayes sent me for Easter. The egg shell halves are mounted lengthwise on the egg '.carton Compartments, dyed shells '-are,; ornamented with sequins, •lihd in-the hollows'are little chicks.

Mr Helmers is n poor' health and she is needed n her.home. She was presented with a potted plant by other employees, a farewell gift. . Yes, spring is • here! housewives have ;told few they cleaning. The fever never subsl des till May 31. * * « One of the silliest reasons for the cancellation of an order to buy a plot occurred in a Newark cemetery When a chap explained, "I'notice'that my plot is near the lake and that's undesirable. I would affect my rheumatism." Which reminds me of Eula Rich's complaint when her husband John told me-he had purchased a plot in East Lawn near tnc railroad tracks. Said Eula, "I don't believe it will disturb you." * « e ' Thanks to the first grade Methodist church Sunday school children, the trays Easier noon had an Easier basket and from Girl Scouts troop I we had baskets on our evening trays. Thank you, children. We like being remembered. * » » Mrs Josie Thompson, resident here, was visited Saturday by her grandson John Thompson and his wife Beverly, Minneapolis. John is attending an electronic school there. , • * . * * Thanks also to manager Gerald. Bomgaars of the Ben Franklin store for the lovely bouquets sent. here.
