In these modern days 'communications border on the miraculous, and with a husband in Africa, it is wonderful to be living in the present and being able to talk with him. Mr Evers left reluctantly for Monrovia, Liberia, Africa for he has a family he didn't want to leave. But the foreman on the construction of a power plant there fell in a limes, . Not' long ago a man who lad beon with an electric com- saiiy at the same job completed lis work and came, home via England and Sqotland.

Abhrams, now She' and Grace Mrs :Wallace Carson, were roommates and many are the times I have talked with them at Mr and Mrs Frank Henderson's home. They: had a room in the Methodist parsonage when Rev. and Mrs.'' W. J. Tood were her. A luncheon for 14 guests was . heM at the hotc«l and another former Al- gonan was present, Elsie Specht, now Mrs Fred Kutzli, Prairie City. At the luncheon were Tony, of cours'e, Mr C.arson and other former Algonans, Oneta's sisters, Mrs Bernice Seeley and \trs Frank Thorpe, Ames, whom he Didriksens had been visiting. They had also been in Des Vtoines with their son and daugh- ,cr-in-law, Mr and Mrs Roger Didrikson. » * • Nice as the Gaylord Shumway's five week vacation was in Mississippi and Alabama, it isn't to be compared with the one their daughter Sandra has been having. She: is a student at Oxford university, England, and there is a sort of study within a study, .arrangement where eight days of travel at intervals is added to the regular cirriculum. She has been in England, France, Scotland, Spain, Portugal and Ireland and says Ireland is by far the most beautiful country. Which sounds good to me, .for I am of Irish descent. Well, I'd settle for a gulf states trip a la parental Shumways, but isn't it wonderful to get around to all those foreign places! .: » * * A chat with Frances Eason assured me she is cheerful and accepting a wheel chair and crutches with good grace.
