Irma mentioned it,' for ' he still had a look of the little boy who was a classmate so many years ago. The .;sister Hazel and I were playmates. Dick, who is foul years older than Lloyd and 1, •was "big brother" and I never knew him except as he'd dash in and out of the house. OUi acquaintance went as far as ''hello". Four years then was a wide, gap. Four years now doesn't mean a thing.

Elizabeth had her come to her apartment so Mrs. Fitzgerald could give me a first hand report on her dwelling. I was glad to hear from "Bets" in this manner. '» * * Thursday, June 22, was ban ner day. I had flll the fried chicken I could eat, and believt me, for chicken I have a big appetite. Mrs. Elton Pratt brought me : a whole bird, deliciously brown and so tasty. I am ashamed to tell how many pieces I ate. •. * • » I know how Theresa Oslwinkle feels with wide open spaces after a sale of household goods that cluttered the place.
