Mrs. Ellis has"'for some time spent the summers .with'her'sister and is joined here by her husband Whose visits have'been of briefer duration. Now he is in a position to remain as long as he wishes, go and corne freely as he chooses, for he has now retired from his 'position as medical director, industrial medicine and surgery division, medical department after more than 36 years with the Travelers Insurance Company. Just in case it may have been forgotten, his wife and sister-in- law are the former Yarda and Segrid Nelson, daughters of the late Mr. and Mrs. Eric Nelson. • , Mrs. Perry i Collins has been uncomfortably close to the Carla area at Sulphur,- La., and a phone call, home "'assured her husband she and the son Dale and family whom she was visiting were OK and would-stick to home and "ride, it put". It was sort of on the fringe, so to speak, but that's plenty close en'oUgh. I have a cousin living in Houston and his daughter and family live in Galveston.

One thing she has seer, which we didn't was Eagle Poim at Clinton. Well gals, we'll havt to see E. P. some time. She and her daughter Mrs. Dyrl Jones Laurens, had attended burial services at Wayland, not fa'r from Muscatine, a territory famous for the huge crops of watermelons, They had stopped in Des Moines overnight' with the .son., and daughter-in-law Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Schimmel. They went on to Clinton and visited with her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. John Murphy. Having driven a good many miles without sleep, they found when they reached Hampton they just couldn't go another mile without a nap, so they pulled up in & well lighted spot off the highway and had "40 winks". Upon arriving home they found Mr, and Mrs, Howard Scribner had arrived from Sacramento, .Calif Mrs. Scribner is another daughter of the Schimmels. * * • Ah, the perfect gentleman! "When a husband opens the door and helps his wife into his car, he's probably just acquired one or the other." * * • How about it—"A lot of men miss their wife's cooking—every chance they get." , .» * * You bet— "If the Russians were really proud of their communist experiment, instead of their Iron Curtain they would put in a plate glass window." ft* It was quite a thrill having a little interview with Mr. j and Mrs. Kenneth Fridfres, who had been married at Bancroft a short time prior to coming here to see the bridegroom's great aunt, Eva The bride was tensing.
