But for men" a#d>bj?ys,,a 'will.befa Vvanderful experience. Tom's mother, Gayie, admitted she - will be glad' when she hears from him that he Is safely back,In St, Paul. A, trip I would like lo take is one -that Mr. and Mrs. Fred Erlcksort .began .Aug. 4. They st&rted for Harinlba'l, Mo'., were t6 visit the 1 Navoo arpa, rich Ih Mormon history, st6p<at Galena, m., to see President Grant's home, which I have visited and found very interesting, then to ^pcjkford, 111., where they visited with Mrs,, firickson's niece Srtd'husband, Mr, and'Mrs. Hoger 1 . tfrbmingto, .on to Toledo, O., Mere,they will visit with her brother and sistendn-law, Mr.' .and Mrs, John Sehnenfelder, up to Mackinac' tsl'and, follow the lake and then home. Many persons will remember When -the Jate Clarence Stewart and.hls Wife, Connie, and daugh- ters,'t Katherine and 'Joan, lived here, Cpnhie is a sister of Ray Beamish and the parents live at Iowa Falls.- Connie has been •away, from here for some time, her • latest location being Claremont, .Csjif. She has returned to the midwest and after being with her" parents awhile, -is with-her daughter Katherine •and husband. Later she is going t6 Mason City where she will be employed. And now the Strange part is this. The Stewarts and "Wally" McDougalls were very/close friends. Both women, now widowed, will be living in Mason City and will take up the friendship and • association ot several years ago. Doesn't life dish up some odd situations? Evalyn McDoUgall will be gqjng to Mason City Sept. l' to "take up office'work'at; the Psu-k hospital. C.*-M. Whliehill was "sweet sixteen,'!, Aug. 4 and b£ way Of, cetebra'tion she and hei husba'nd -and 1 ' .daughters,- Mrs. Harold Angus and Mrs; Gerald Angus went, to Clear Lake to spend the day with the son and daughter-tn-law Mr. and Mrs, Claude , WJiitehill and children. Claude is principal of the Ciear Lake schdpls, having recently accepted the-- position, and has moved into a new home Which for the first'time will be inspected by the visitors. I told her I love to eat at Witke's and suggested that she have them take her there .for a birthday .dinner. There'Is such a fine view of the lake and the food is tasty. <> , 1 . 9.
