October 2 —Summer cottager back home are the L. E. Linnan. from Lac Court Oreilles, Wis. the R. H. Millers from the Oko bojis, the Milton Nortons from the Same place, the Leroy Crap- sers from Iowa Lake where they had a trailer house and the Dr John Keneficks have gone to" Big Sandy, McGregor, Minn., to close theirs. Of course there are others but these are the ones I have talked with. Isn't it kinda sad? Slimmer gone, and we. have already had a taste of Winter with the snow Sept. 30. I called a friend, and sang "Jingte Bells". She caught on at onceii * * *'':.'. Algona has' been well represented at' the Rochester, Minn, clinic—Maxine Merryman, Mable Paxson and Albert Granzow. Maxine is home after a check-up. Elizabeth Baas, Good Samaritan resident, had a birthday Sept. 1 ', 28 which was observed in customary fashion. , •. ••''•/'• ••••'.-'• •«'''•*• • •••'• :.-: / Medicines passed out by doctors seldom are palatable but the -'../'pill" passed out recently by Ve/ t da Murtagh's doctor .was particu- ' Jarly bitter for it'consisted of a . big "No" to her question about accompanying her husband Gene and'Mr. and Mrs. Vic Parsons to a National Mutual-Life Insurahct company meeting in New York City. Richard ThoresOn went in place of Mrs. Murtagh and since he is her son-in-law, she probably could give in more gracefully tp one of the family. The reason she was not permitted to go is that she is recovering from a virus and a long trip was not advisable. But fancy having to .five up seeing "The Invincible Molly Brown" ahd ' "Camelpt," and all, the other exciting and pleasing things 'in the city. .;,-'. .» -* * .". Hazel Miller has found it most interesting to be a member of the board of directors of the summer theatre group at the Okobojis this summer; •. ' •• *. * •• Saturday with' its snow and cold was a miserable day on which to start a wonderful trip, but I told Helen they would soon t be away from it, since she and husband Tedo Hutchison were heading toward Louisville, Ky. There they will visit Helen's .•brother-in-law and sister Mr ahd Mrs. Sterling Goff and from there they will go to Boone, N C., to visit with Tedo's brother- m-law and, sister, Quincy and Isabel Drummond. They will gc from there to Auburndale, a suburb of Boston, to visit with their son and daughter-iri-law, Mr and Mrs. Ted Hutchison and family. They will-return via Chicago and there visit with Tedo's sister, Dorothy Hutchison. They will be gone three weeks. It was good seeing Connie Stewart' and Evalyn McDougall. both former residents here anci both now employed at Mason City, Cinnie at the Odd Fellows orphanage, where she is house mother of 13 lads, and Evalyn employed at Park hospital. Connie's husband, Clarence, died several years ago and Connie has had a number of changes in residence. The younger friends will remember the daughters Katherine and Joan, both married and with families. Connie was recently employed at Claremont, Calif., and saw the Homer Tuttles, Pomona, and Russell Maxwell, Ontario, all former Algonans. Connie is a sister of Ray Beamish and was guest there over the weekend. » * * Mr, and Mrs. Don Hemmingsen have been visited by the latter s mother, Mrs. S. A. Slater, Worthington, Minn., who returned recently from a 2','- month tour of Europe. She enjoyed the trip saw many beautiful cities and historic buildings and sites but is very glad to get home. She says one does not appreciate our sanitary food storage and packaging smooth cement walks and highways until one has experienced lax sanitation and cobble stone roads. The roads and many steps she climbed to inspect buildings wore out two pairs of walking shoes, giving a good indication oJ the "foot work" shq accomplished. She was particularly impressed with the beautiful cathedrals. She is firmly convinced "There's no place like home." Two weeks of her time were spent in Paris with a niece and I wonder how much of the language she picked up. * « e Mrs, Rose Loper had as recent guest Mrs. Charles Ellsworth, Denver, Colo. It will be remembered that she is a sister of the late Mrs. Jake Freeh. I askea about Dore Freeh and learneo that he is in San Diego, Calif., cooking at a motel court, He has married again, his first wife be- ng the late Lennice Lynch. The daughter Peggy and family live nearby. I have forgotten her married name; From here, Mrs. Ellswortty-j went to Waterloo to ,.-.. w4th her slater, MM, 0, A Schults. Mrs, Ellsworth had liv ed in 'the Forest City area an Rose took hef there for, a da to vi«it with Mends',.'' - : * »'•••• It is an honor lo be a membe of the University of Iowa's Scot tish Hilanders so I will mention that Nancy Ross, Cedar Rapids granddaughter of Mr, and Mrs Alex Nielsen, belongs to the group and was recently with them in Chicago.. *..'' * * Mrs. Maiiie McWhori'er, Good Samaritan resident, went to Forl Dodge Tuesday with Mr. and Mrs. Frank Ryerson, Burt, and visited a Haven. , , cousin at Friendship Isn't it nice io have fresh her- 'ies in autumn? That's what hap- jened to Ruth and Elmer Philips. Raspberries Oct. 2 from heir own vines. * * * I have two new violets, thanks o Mrs. Nick Fisch.' The two she ;ave me which I have bragged so ibout, became infested with, corn borers! Probably from some outdoor .flowers I had and set near he "plants. She has warned me to ceep bouquets at some distance from, my "babies". Henceforth any pasey will be regaf&d with rlngbearer and w-ent through »„*„,.,«« „„,> .,,111 ..-j.^.,.. suspicion and will undergo inspection. • * * ' * Yessir — "When it comes f doing for others," 5 some . nothing.' * * « The eternal feminine -*, "A new hat is not only a tonic fo the average woman, but it Wakei her strong enough to buy. a sui and three pairs' of shoes to eo with it." e * • • * Many Algerians will remember Ray Mason and his late; w'lfe Elva Slagle. There were three daughters, Mona, now Mrs; -Ro* and Jutting, Buffalo -Center, 3everly, how the " wife - Of- the Rev.

Olgas little grandson, Steven Jordon, W,as a part handsomely,'-looking „,„., bit the little * man in, his blue suit, white, shirt and tie. Bu when it was all over ahd h* again looked at the bat'e satin pillow he asked "Well, where are my rings?" Kinda looked to him like a gyp deal. * * • •. The picture of Maury While, sports writer for the Des Moines Register caught my eye, not only because he is a handsome younfe man, but because he is brother of Lavonne Post. . * * , * Did you see the picture 6f Mary Pickford and hus ban a Buddy Rogers in a recent Issue of the Register? She is no longer ;he pretty, petite girl she was and t's comforting^to know even the famous and wealthy grow' old, or should I say older? . With relatives: 11 vingih Galves* on and Houston, this Carla bus-^ ness kept me a bit anxious and t was with interest I learned a former Algbnan is on the .job down there With the Red Cross.

With enother bumper corn crop predicted for this year—currently estimated at 3.5 billion bushels for grain production, farmers would do well to examine their farm-storage situations. While corn growers cooperating with the 1961 Feed Grain Program will be eligible for price support in the "normal production" from their 1961 com acreage, price support is available only if suitable and approved storage is provided for housing the crop under loan. Corn put under purchase agreements also .must be adequately stored if the crop is not to deteriorate and thus result in a loss to the farmer. E. E. (Bud) 1 Robinson, distributor of Sioux Steel Buildings, would like to remind farmers that farm storage facility loans continue to be available through the local ASCS office. The loans can cover up to 95 percent of the cost of building new storage bins, cribs, or bfher approved structures costing 40 cents per bushel or less. For storage costing more, farmers may borrow up to 95 percent of 40 cents per bushel or 80 percent of the cost, whichever is greater, but not more than 50 cents per bushel of capacity. The loans run for 5 years, at 4 percent interest, and may be repaid in four annual installments, with the first installment due on the loan's first anniversary date.
