Ground-hog dny! Sure, he saw his shadow! Did you ever know of a year he didn't? And we know darned well, hog or not, that Feb. 2 has six more weeks of winter to follow. We are just lucky if there isn't more. » * * Having been told how a cardinal whistles, when I heard something that sounded like the description, I hastened to the window. I'd like to see 1 a cardinal. The cardinal turned out to be Jim Allen whistling to the dog Sonny, SOME cardinal! And I figure I'm not very bright. As a "bird watcher" I'd rate a 0. Did you notice the picture of Tom Potter under "What do YOU Think" in the Des Moines Register a while ago? He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Murl Potter. I doti't remember wHat the question was but his reply was a good one—" I believe that there are many more things that must be taken into consideration when a teenager is involved in a crime of violence. I believe that if teenagers had more parental control there would not be as many crimes committed by teenagers. I don't think a teenager should be treated as an adult, but he should be given more counseling 1 and guidance. There SUN. Thru TUES. ALGONA CONTINUOUS SUNDAY FROM 1:30 P.M.

Having been there three times but some years ago, the latest in 1951, we chatted about the city a bit and voted it one of the most interesting. Mrs. Lichter is an R N. and took her training at Lying In hospital. I was a patient at Presbyterian twice. The third time I was there overnight enroute tr Peninsula, Ohio. One of the thing; the Lichters enjoyed on their vis it was a trip to the Prudentia building up to the forty-first floor where they had a magnificent view of the city.

They were able to get tickets for "Bye-Bye Birdie" and the Chicago Symphony but would have iked going to "The Sound of Music". Wouldn't it be fun to live close enough to the city to dash in for some good entertainments instead of having to go some four hundred plus miles. * « « Mrs. Llnnan has a sister Frcdc- ricka Wassenberg, who is stationed in Indonesia.

She left about Thanksgiving for Newark, N. J., to be with her son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Wright, to whom a daughter, Ann Fraser, had been born. There is another little daughter, Sarah Ellen. Little Ann's birth announcements were ' very appropriate, reading "Another Wright Turn." Phe trip both ways was made via et, which Mrs. Fraser said she enjoyed after the first look down, t was then she made up her mind, 'Well, I am a long way up and 1 lope everything comes out OK. But what ever happens, it was supposed to and I'm taking my chances with the rest." Among the things of interest she saw in sfew York City were Rockefeller center, the United Nations building, St. Patrick Cathedral with it's beautiful stained glass windows, a Jewish bazaar, and a visit to Saks store.

He has been named Bruce Lee and joins brothers John, Jr. and Mark. The family lives at Orleans, France, where Capt. is stationed. They will be there a year and a half more. It would seem strange to have no telephone, but Helen Jasperson White, who was stationed abroad with her husband Hi several years ago, said, "well, what's (he difference. There is no one to phone to." I believe they were at or near the same base. Aside from that, they have every modern convenience, which cannot .be said from the Knute and Lillian Orion point of view. They, were there several months in preparation for their work in Equatorial French Africa. • » • Ccclia Deal fell on an icy walk awhile ago and considered herself lucky to have suffered no broken bones.

A five year old girl, Cathy Rosamond was all fixed up with hot water bottles over her ears to counteract the chill. Well, that's one idea. I recall my grandmother Cady telling me that her mother put potatoes in the oven to bake during breakfast. Then they were given to each child going to school. The potatoes were put in coat pockets and with hands in pockets, what could be more cozy? At noon the potatoes were eaten at lunch time. I never asked if the potatoes were re-warmed. A cold baked potato oesn't strike me as being very asty—but in the good old days, >ho knows! « • * Mrs. L. E. Linnan and daughter Jernie flew into Chicago for a ew days last week.
