D-Alfl6rm (la,) Upper CM Molnft Thursday, Auau*t 16, 196t ; In a Hllle chat the oihef day, a housewife* and Mother said, "I'd be tettipted t&^riroli In 6 clnss in gfaiwmar if they'd have ' one next wintei* When they have adult classes," One grows careless and perhaps a bit forgetfu' over the years.

Or perhaps never knew! * » • • >Elvira Monlux waa visited Over a weekend recently by her son and daughter-in-law, Dr. find Mrs William Monlux, and Edna Nelson, Ames. The older generation will remember that Edna ife the former Edna Cole, sister of the well-known Renort. Edna's 1 husband is Dr. Louis Nelson, also a former Algonan and I believe a cousin of Elvira. He has been 'a , veterinarian - at Ames many years but is' now in poor health and hospitalized. * , * * ' . Other "old timers" who have been here are ,Gladys and Harry Wright, Santa Monica, Calif. Years ago,' Harry's 'father was Kossulh county treasurer and Harry, was his deputy. His wife Was then Gladys Daley, relative of O. J. Stephenson, Kpssuth county clerk, and .she was deputy auditor .; for her brothe Andy Anderson, Kossuth; count auditor.

' * * * •It's tough being a little guy and Jay Limbaugh, three-yearr old son of Mr and ' Mrs Jack Limbaugh could iell you so. He was at the wading pool awhile ago, stumbled on the walk and cut. his forehead so two stitches had to be taken. ' * * * Older people have to take , falls in stride, too. Mrs A. B.

She was let out of her "prison" July 5. » " * * Mrs Duane Murphy and Rebecca, 2, and Ramona, 1, Blue Earth, Minn., and Mrs Gene Nllson, Winnebago, called on me one day recently. I had met Rebecca when she was about eight months old, a charming little gal. Ramona is also a charmer and the girls bear a close resemblance. I noticed the names have been shortened to Becky and Mona. * * * July 28 — A few words of loving remembrance for my father who died 39 years ago today. * * * Ed Sfuder was visited Friday by his niece and her mother-in- law, Mrs Aurelia Huber and Mrs Hubcr Sr., Plainfield, Wis. of'corn ort the cob.
