Having beert & member 6jf tho "handicapped" clan for so many years, my interests lie in that di, field have representative ... .. Adults and am familial with the fine job they do for rehabilitation, 1 know of several who have had training and-are now self, supporting. One of the newer projects is Camp Sunnyside, north of Des Moines, where last Bummer. 225 crippled and disabled young people were cared for. i There is' a heated pool among the, other very fine ac- cpmodation%. This society is not covered by j. United Funds and depends on sales of seals largely. I have it from good authority ' -j ! he Proceeds .'have, lagged and there is a great need for financial assistance. Think it over you who are able-bodied. , •;'. *.". * : * _ Joseph, son of Mr. and Mrs, ' Lando Mishak, is in service and stationed on Okinawa. He is making good recovery from second degree burns suffered several .weeks ago when a bottle of sulphuric acid was accidently dropped and broke, the spray hitting him on the legs. "The melancholy days have come, the ^saddest of the year"— This so teased Ann Clark, the finish of the, poem learned in school a good many years ago, she could only gain ;peace of mind by calling Beth Annis at the library and getting the rest of it. I am always intrigued b "The curfew sounds the knell parting day. The lowing her winds slowly o'er the lea—Th plowman homeward plods hi weary way, and leaves the world to darkness and to me." (Gray* Elegy) Like Ann, if I get a thing on my mind and can't get i clearly, I am restless and with out sleep. I recall many years ago getting out of bed, hunting up my history book to find the states that bound Iowa! * » • Fred Cotterell, having read my item on him and residency in a rest home at Ottawa, 111., wrote me a letter a few days ago and sent me literature with illustrations. His sister Emma also makes her home there. The oldest member of the family, tht late Ida, lived in the neighborhood of my mother. One para.- graph reads, "I have often ^thought it would be' fun to walk down your streets some nice .morning, and perhaps see the many changes but no doubt find some I would, remember." There is no perhaps about the changes " It is a certainty. ,1 never hear, of Lemort, S. D. . Without the Henry Lowe family in that di- popping into my mind. Mtt Lowe ills from a and'his wife took a claim $0 or from 1 the 50 miles from thefe, the'daugh- ter Bertha homesteaded <ori adjoining land, arid the sdn Clifford finally moved there. The other son John will be Well remembered. The last' I knew of him he was in Madison, Wise., I believe. My very 'good 1 friend Ethel LoWe joined her, family after high < school graduation, married Ralph Parrott 'and had two children, a son and daughter.' The entire family is noW gone* except possibly John and this Leetha I mentioned, of course. Leetha lives In- New York City,'her husband is with the Ford foundation, the son Bruce is a second year Harvard man and Liza is in high school. ' - « • *' It's what counts, nowadays- Man to attractive date—."Tell me your dreams, your hopes and your dimensions." * * » Seems like —"The politicians' promises of yesterday are the- taxes Of today." ' * • • I met Milton .Norton on ihe street the other day. He said Fred Strandberg had been here from Butte, Montana.; Too bad he didn't get back for the 1911 class reunion. Milton and his wife Nell have been in Minneapolis recently visiting .with his son-in- law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Seidlitz and family. They also saw Milton's , nephew, Dr. John Ferguson, son of Edna Norton Ferguson and the late Arthur Ferguson. Milton's son Richard is also a doctor and located at Midland, Tex. Dr. Ferguson has a residency at Miller hospital and it was there Dr. Norton interned. .Friday, Oct. 13—Nettie Haag dropped in for a visit. It is al• ways nice to see her and she was a faithful visitor daily-when her late husband Roy was a resident here. She is just back from a visit of a month in Ryegate, Montana. She went back with her nephew and wife, Mr. and Mrs Wallace Broderson, who had visited here. She was guest of hoi brother John Broderson and the family was joined by anothei brother, Fred, who came from Canada. It had been 35 years since they had seen each other. • • . Mrs. Matiio McWhorler had a$ callers this week Mr. and Mrs W. J. Crosby and little five- month old daughter Ann Elizabeth, Citra, Fla. They were visiting Mr. and Mrs. Frank Ryerson, Hurt. Mrs. Ryerson is a daughter of Mrs. McWhorfer The trip was soriously considered before starting out as Ann has a milk allergy. Good old soybeans have come to the rescue and she is getting along nicely with the substitute liquid. She's a sweet babe. I have never had the privilege of seeing the really big "shoos" in the theatre, but I agree with ''Chris" there is a charm and allure that nothing in movies can approach. My experiences go back to the days of the "Old Call" when we put on our best bib and tucker, donned our party manners and walked on down the aisle to our allotcc seats. The opening overture frorr the orchestra pit put us in still more ecstatic mood—and with the rising of the curtain Well, it was "the most". The only actor of any prominence ! ever saw was Walker Whileside Lesser ones were W. B. Patton Boyd Truesdale and Clint anc Bessie Rpbbjns, the Truesdalt and Ribbins shows coming for week stands dtoring the Kossuth County Fair. Of course, all of us girls had a high school crush on Boyd, the handsome devil! And we had to go every night! I'd liked to have seen Billie Burke, Ethel Barrympre, John Barrymore and Eddie Cantor. Otjo Witte of Good Samaritan has had as callers his sister-in- law, Mrs. Charles Wittfe and son Fritz, Lemon, S. D, and Mrs. pell, Whitlemore. One of ihe ?oun§esf foofba. fans is Michael; four year old son of Mr. and Mrs. James Chapman Eagle Grove. His mother is the former Judy McMahon anil the grandparents are Mr. and Mrs Roy McMahon. The McMahons attended the Algona-Eagle Grove game Friday, Oct. 13 and took young- Michael with them. -For his,age, it is surprising the "kick" the youngster ' gets out of the game, and the understanding he has of procedures. * * II was indeed Friday, Oel. 13, liying up to it's bad reputation, for on that night, while prepay ing for bed, Lucille Zerfass fell and broke her right shoulder. It was difficult for her to get to the phone, and aftqr an agonizing time, she was able to dial and get Charles Hamilton there with his ambulance. It was some time ago Lucille broke a h'ip and after a long, long period of time was getting around fairly- well. Then she broke an ankle and the cast had been off but a short .ime.when this last disaster overtook her. -* * * Other disaster of minor nature iook place at the Iowa State Sank, one which was plumbing troubles. Good-bye Friday the 13th! .».-,* * - : Life was so much simpler years ago. When the big brave brought home a moose or deer, the little woman was so proud of him, called him "heap big chief" and found a place to exhibit the antlers,' pointing to it With, great pride—I think!, Pilgrim mothers probably used them for clothes racks—or maybe they just said "out—There's no room in the cabin." Coming to modern times, there's simply no place for the trophy except the barn, the basement or the garage. And maybe the dump wobld be a better place. All of this 'preamble to tell you that Mrs. Bray faces the antlers problem. Craig Smith and Dr. Daniel Bray are back from a hurtling spree in -Canada, Craig, getting a cow moose and Dr. Bray a' buck deer. Think of all the nice steak? they will have-and venison -Which always sounds so inviting. -By the way- 1 -! heard' geese going over Sunday night, Oct. 15. pic you? Page all hunters! * * * Mrs. Ethel Gilles .lived in Swea City prior to, comi'hg to Algona in. 1950 and over" tHo, years her friends have kept -in. touch with her... Recently four women paid her a surprise visit arid took her out for lunch, they were Mrs. G. 'D. Curtis, 'Mrs. Aletha* Eckland, Mrs. John Eckland 1 and Mi-s. W. M. Thompson. Mrs. Gilles has made her .home at Cfood Samarita/i the past two years. They took a ride around. toWn and were especially interested in Dr. Shierk's fall out shelter. » * * Mr. and Mrs.. Dave Lefferi were visited Sunday by the 'for- ner's nephew, Archie Midhel, 3es Moines. He called on t.eora. St. John and me 'Sunday and it tvas pleasant visiting with him. He will be', well remembered as a former resident. He Was ah engineer here and also served 1 , on he school board. " *.•:' * . . ,* '• '.f '' Another bride and groom and heir attendants were here 'Sunday, Oct. 15, shortly after the wedding, at .Emmetsburg. , They came to' see Otto Witte, uncle of the bride and her maid. The party consisted 'of. the very new bride Linda :Kmnetz and .bridegroom Darald Duane Fett, Emmetsburg, and Linda KinnetZj Emmetsburg, and Gordon San-" PUMPKIN A large pumpkin on the Mrs. Henry Nienkark farm of near Maquoketa, has gfown through a wire fence.
