The address list for Christmas cards is another, necessity I woulc include 'as well as the certificates our family has for marriage, baptisms, .debate, winnings, writing awards and the blue ribbon Fathei won .in a track meet back in 1934. * * LOT'S WIFE, IN THE BIBLE, WAS TURNED. into a pillar of salt because she looked back upon leaving her home in Sodom or Gomrnorah. If flaced with a similar situation, I. know I would also turn ,into a pretty salty character.: But if I, like the East German wife in'the papers, had'to move from East to West Algona on short notice, ,1 would have in my overnight bag only practical items. A jar of tomato juice, two of dill pickles, a history of Kossuth County, a framed motto, some baby pictures, some miscellaneous certificates and a soup tureen ! Just very practical items. \. . • * * * THE HUSBAND IN THE STORY ABOUT THE East German couple asked for some clean undei;wdar the next morning after their escape and was told that they didn't have any. He looked over the contents of the overnight bag, but didn't say one angry word about the useless, things his wife .had brought with them. She said, "You know if I had to do it all over again, I still do not know what I would put in that bag !" Would you, if faced with a similar situation ?
