Sven Engstrom, Stockholm, Sweden. This is the first, time they have met the cousin who is an interpreter. Lucky he speaks English, for Olga says she has forgotten most of her Swedish language.

I remember so well being at Zada Brunon's one day and Mayme stopped awhile. I had a sheet of new music Zada played and it drip>ed with sentiment.

One drive, in fact. Because any Corvair— wagon, sedan or coupe—is such an overwhelming joy to pilot. Its rear-engine design makes for light, positive steering and real nailed-down traction. And its full independent suspension shuts out road shocks before they ever reach you. What's more, this sweetheart's no slouch at saving you money: It carries a sensible price tag, goes and goes on a gallon, never needs liquid coolants. py A||ElfDA| CT How can you resist a personality like that? , Df VllLVIlULt I know what they, and wonder if they know it is against the law to shoot BeeBees, sling shots and arrows witfeih the city limits? There just * might be trouble for some boys who are using these weapons to kill/birds, and if 1 were right behind them, I'd like to administer : some good old fashioned woodshed discipline. ^Shame oh boys who destroy birds. And double shame for using weapons irt areas taboo. Most of the lads are known and there has been talk of nvitifying the parents or authorities. « . * * Tis said "Troubles never come singly". The Alden McAdams 1 would be easy to convince of this for his mother, Lillian McAdams, formerly of Swea City, now in a Rest. Home at Burt, recently fell and broke her hip and his wife had surgery at St. Ann. The mother was taken 'to the University hospital, Iowa City, but is now at Burt. The wife was at St. Ann but is now convalescing at home. * * * When I called the Harold Mosher residence for news, I was answered by their nephew Bob Farnstrom, Detroit, Mich., who is home from 13 l /z months of service in Korea and after his 30- day leave here, will go to Fort Monmbulh, New Jersey.

The glass I used for a vase and got at Davenport on our recent visit there came to a bad ending. When that brisk wind struck'Monday evening, I was on the front porch. The glass had flowers in it, the wincl hat taken it, smashed it in' hundreds of pieces on the floor, the flowers dashed there, too, and the heav ier part of the vase had rollec to the side several feet from point of falling.

He has had an in- Carnation of the hip socket due to jumping from <a swing, it is believed. By this time, he is probably completely recovered and in full stride. The day I called Mrs. Ott he was hopping on one leg to get to another room, the year old baby had discovered the dog's dish of water, so I said a hasty "Goodbye". She assures me there is never a dull "moment, and 1 believe her, but aren't kids cute? * • « June 10 will be a day to be remembered in the Lawrence Hutzell family, for on that day they acquired a new daughterrin-law and a new grandson.

For the third time I've had the wool blanket taken out of storage and put back on my bed. Well, better than those two hot, humid nights. yourself.

I made one when I called Grace Cruikshank Mrs. Arthur Jackson. I don't know how I happened to do it for I knew well that it is. JACKMAN. But some one else did the same thing.
