Garfield CY 4-2872 Algona and 'his wife Nell at ^the'Norton cottage at the Okobojis. It was such fun reminiscing. Food is a favorite topic with women and recently a few of us got to mentioning the things we liked. I said, "Well, that's that. Now let's talk about the things we don't like." I started it off with Spanish rice, baked eggs, potato soup, corn bread, sweetened dressing for fowl or chops, creamed anything on toast, and kidney beans, and was' followed by the women's dislikes of spinach, shrimp, cheese, butter, ava- cado, prunes, gingerbread, brus- sels sprouts, weenies, mushroom soup, raw oysters, meat balls, till the list was pretty long. Now what are your pet dislikes? Mrs. Keller, resident here, the most had as recent callers Wednesday her sisters, Mrs. Anna Anliker and Mrs. Silas Banwart, West Bend. We have a mutual acquaintance, Sarah Kropf, whose home is at West Bend and who has a sister who married a Banwart. SHERWIN-WILLIAMS Dealers Salute ALGONA'S FIRST TOTALLY ELECTRIC GOLD MEDALLION MODEL HOME WE ARE PROUD THAT SHERWIN-WILLIAMS PAINTS WERE SELECTED! "'.'Knowing, considerable about the work Knute Orton and his wife. Lillian have been doing in Ippy, French Equatorial French Africa, and thinking of the experiences they have had, the places they have seen, I am looking forward to seeing them and getting more first-hand 'information. Their experiences cover such a wide area, it would almost take a book to. cover it. Dental training in Chicago, for Knute, his ordination prior to hat so I should actually call him Rev. Orton, their residence in France, Paris no less, while learning the language, and then heir residency in Ippy and Cnute's hospital work. So much s crowded into the past four 'ears. And now they are home or a year's deputation work with leadquarters at Omaha, Neb. Phey made the trip via plane in 23 hours to Cleveland and then ia plane west, arriving in Omaha Friday, Sept. 8. Quite a crowa of friends, reporters, photographers, and church members met them at the plane. * » * At Judge and Mrs. G. W. Siill- mrm's, among other guests were Albert Briney, a civil engineer who has to' his credit the very fine job of the "Road to the Sun" at Glacier National park. Probably many of you have gone over it and will recall what a wonderful achievement it is. * * • Velma Hagg and I went on a spree Sept. 8—went with misgivings as to weather. All went well until we loitered for a bit of shopping. Came a deluge and we scurried to shelter in a tavern- entry, that is, shared by Ken Geilenfeld with his cart of mail It would have been fun to sit right out in the downpour, but perhaps not so good from a health standpoint. * * * What a frustrating day it was for Mrs. Willard Zeigler the day she got her husband and daughter Francie off on a plane at Fort Dodge for St. Louis where they attended the wedding of Willard's niece, Ina Jean Gaines Francie was a bridesmaid Willard a guest and Mrs. Z. didn't go along. She is on a diet which requires six meals a day and she couldn t feature going away from home and following doctor's orders. With the plane due in 20 minutes, it certainly was nerve- wracking to have a flat too far from goal to walk. But the tire did get fixed, and the next thing was a run down battery. Yes the travelers made the plane on -time but Mrs. Z. still doesn™ see "" It W3S done ' It>5 thin S s lj ke that put gray hairs on the head and ulcers in the stomach! * * f Six months ago lifo looked pretty grim to Frances But now everything is rosy ant she is,back teaching at Lucia JWallace school, the hip she Fbroke in a fall is in fine shape and the only result is an extra awareness of anything that might •make her fall. She will be particularly careful of ice," come winter, for that is what caused all the misery. .• * • • •• It was interesting looking through the D.A.R. year book and reading the names of the re- isp'ective forebears. I am eligible for membership and my line is a direct one from Capt. Ebenezer Cady who is my grandfather several generations removed. There were Ebehezer 1, II. and III, then Arnold'"Gady and Mor- Vin Cady down to my father Marvin. I have often wondered about the Henderson line. -My ancestor was with Washington when the English surrendered at Yorktown. Colonial 'history has quite a fascination for me. Then the 1830-40 era is of great interest too. * * * • I noticed robins are congregat- ng. Laying plans and discussing routes to the southland, no doubt.

Witikopf recently took their son Eugene to Valparaiso, Ind., to enter his freshman year of college. Three ypung men share a room and Eugene and William Wesler, of near Valparaiso were wondering what the third man would be like. To their surprise a very black African exchange student came to the room. He speaks a little* English and after a few days, Eugene and Bill will probably get over the shock and will pronounce the foreigner a fine fellow. The daughter, Carol, accompanied her parents to Valparaiso but was dropped off at Arties on the return trip. She is a junior at the university. * *.;*,• 'Having seen "Fanny" and en* joying it, I will confess I went to see' Chevelier and B,oyer especially, both prime favorites of'mine over many years.
