8~Atgono (la.) Upper Pat MfllttM 25,1965 A great musician was lost to the world with the recent death of Fritz Kreisler. Years ago when I had a Victrola I had some red seal records by him, and how my father and 1 enjoyed them. He too played the violin and thought it the king of instruments. It was with great interest I learned that Rhoda Bonar met Kreisler many years ago when she lived at Mounl Pleasant and Kreisler taught ai Iowa Wesleyan college. Rhoda had a sister, Elizabeth Crull, who showed great promise as a vio linist and was given instruction by Kreisler. She had rented a violin and Kreisler thought her tal ent so outstanding, he was anxiou for her to study in Germany wher he thought opportunities for f a career for marriage. Kreisler was noted for his kindness to thers and had several proteges. * - »' '.»••; A "Blessed Ev6nt" took i>lacc Feb. 6 at Mrs. William Gustin's vhen triplet Pomeranian puppies were born to Golden; Girl Skippy (Penny) and Bright Eyed Timmy (Tiny), two. females and one male.

He bought her a violin a very good one for $25, and gay it to her as evidence of his belie in her. But as,is the case man sorely tempted, though my choice has always run to cats.

With her was Mrs. Alfred Schenck of whom 1 have heard much from time to time but never met. * * * Mrs. Paul Palmer told me this about her daughter Mary and husband, James Fritz, who have moved from Cave Junction, Ore. to Modesto, Calif, where Mr. Fritz has entered college. Mr. Fritz .started out two hours ahead of his wife, taking the house trailer. Mrs. Fritz and year old son Jimmy were to follow in the car and eventually arrive at the given point around the same' time. As it happened, Mr. F. drove off the highway for some purpose, gas perhaps, and Mrs. F., apparently looking neither to the left t>r right, passed right by her husband and arrived in time to wait and wonder what had become of him. * » • Paul Palmer was here the other day to call on his father-in-law, Monroe Phillips. He stopped in here for a chat and remarked that years ago when he was a lad and lived across the street where La- dendorffs did for years and the John Helmers live .now, he used to fire the furnace here for the Ambrose Calls.

He is a graduate of the Emmetsburg high school and credits his good fortune to the debate training he received there. His ability to speak with ease and on a variety of subjects contributed considerably to his winning. Alan is still a student at Harvard and is majoring in history. Hi* professors would like to see him enter into diplomatic law but he has made no decision. His vacation last summer was spent at the Iowa statehouse where he ghosted zero-hour speeches for Gov. Erbe. He has been urged to return there next summer. At present, he is doing a thesis on Henry Wallace. Many of you may scorn the humble but prolific dandelion, but ,o one person the flower has reached a rather exalted position Mrs. J. I. Merryman has some dandelion plants, potted if you please, and about to bloom. Well I'd be mighty happy to see £ green lawn right now dotted with the gay, yellow blooms. Wouldn' you? With the risk of bringing ire to the memory of my grandmother and her sister, Mrs. Thomas Henderson and Emmaline Heckart, I will reveal that they took credit for establishing the flourishing plants here. They told about bringing seeds to Iowa when they came from Elkhart, Ind., because they liked the color. Well, I have an idea dandelions were blooming before the advent of the Heckarts and it is a doubtful destinction anyhow. t « • So many Algerians know my cousin Melvin Henderson, Upland, Calif., I use excerpts from his letters every now and then to keep you informed on him and his family and he gives good word pic tures of his part of California.
