of m n Pot i er > has #>"* to the Beyond. Many here will remember him and be sorry to hear of his death, which occurred in his real estate office Feb. 7 at Fort ^erdale, Fla. where he had lived for some time after many years of residency in Chicago/He had not been in good health for awhile and suffered a stroke a few years ago. He is survived by « ^ and a slster > Nev£i . Mrs. «. G. Schunck, of Chicago. Death was due to a heart attack. Merland was born at West Bend and was 71 Dec. 16. His parents were Frank and Ella 'Potter. At an early age the family moved to Algona and he attended schools here. Another son, Sherman, youngest of the family of three, died in 1949 or SO. '.*•*. • So many things come to my mind as I think back over the years to the Potter family. Mr. Potter was my Sunday School teacher for some time and I recall going to a party at his home ' across the road west of the former Mart Weaver home on Lucas street. Mrs. Potter was one of the most interesting women I ever knew. She lived a long life, kept a keen sehse of humor and was alert to the last. She died about three years ago. ; I well remember Merland's hair, dark and curly like his father's. I also remember Zada Brunson talking about him when we were sub-teertagers and in the present day vernacular he was her "boy friend". In those days a "boy friend" merely meant some lad with whom you exchanged valentines, and occasionally he walked you home from a Sunday School party. Or he might cast a shy grin your way across a school room. Nevertheless it was Romance with a capital R. Oh this "fugiting" time! < * * This is a story about a baby sitter, but with a slightly different twist. Karen and Jeff, six and seven year oid children of Dorothy and Willard Zeigler, were thought to be settled for the night. Dorothy was away for the evening afid Willard had turned in for some much needed rest so the "cats" weren't completely' away buti the "mice" did play. Goodness only knows how they got the idea of hatching a chick, but who can figure kids anyhow. A raid on the ice box yielded one egg — lucky they didn't want to hatch a brood — and onto the register \vent the egg. At least they knew it took heat to produce a chick. Results were not forthcoming after a tirtie they considered adequate, so Karen put the egg on the bed. And this is where the "baby sitting" comes in. Karen SAT on the egg with dire results, and just what Dorothy said when she discovered a very messy bedspread, she didn't go into detail. * * * Mr. and Mrs. James Will and Family have done something I'd ike to do —seen Joseph Gotten in "Prescription for Murder." they spent a recent weekend at Sioux !ity with Mr. and Mrs. Don Price and saw the play while there. Cot- fin is one of my favorites. Charles Boyer is another and I'd gladly go to the "Casbah" with him if he'd ask me! » • •• When I heard of the death of "Ding" Darling, I thought of the book of his cartoons I used to look at at Zada Brunson's years ago. He could say more with a picture than a book of words. I have kept a few in my scrap book. One is of the World peering with awe and apprehension around a high board fence at the atom which has just been released. Another was of Franklin Roosevelt doing hurdles and setting the pace for followers. » * • •• How many of the old time things did you recognize in the recent picture of an antique shop pictured in the Register?

You see, they both do, because each has a separate checking account. Why two accounts? As family treasurer, she uses her account to handle regular operating expenses. His account takes care of the larger and less frequent payments. There's less chance for misunderstandings, more harmony all around. Perhaps this idea is worth trying in your family.

I've also seen her impatience at 'times the cream wouldn't "come." She'd let me squeeze the milk from the butter, too, .after it had been placed in the wooden butter bowl-squeezed with a wooden spoon shaped just for the purpose. • * * Going back many years again — a collar held under the ears by little transparent gadgets. Yes, I wore 'em but at sixteen I had a face that could j stand such a style, if it had to. Right now I can't say much for a high collar and frills! Yes, the face has changed! • . • • It is hard for me to picture Gardner Cowles as the business tycoon he has turned out to be. 1 knew him as a little chubby youngster whom I saw at his home when I went there to play with his sister, Bertha. He was called "Mike" more often than Gardner. His latest venture is with a group which has purchased all stock of three Mackle brothers in General Development Corp. for investment purposes. Cowles has been elected chairman of the board. He is also a nationally known magazine and newspaper publisher and radio-television executive. * * w My cousin Edwin Cady, Houston, Texas., likens himself to a gravel pit, Having had recent surgery for gall 'bladder ' removal,;/ 'plilS' 1 'be? tween 60 and 70 stones.

I love those old-fashioned things. In a small way the villa Louis at Prairie du Chien is a duplicate. And Grant's home at Galena. I grew up on hair cloth and black walnut and for a few years didn't appreciate it. Now I have some of the things in my room — the hair cloth replaced by tapestry, and love every inch of thsm. « « * Have you seen the note paper with the little tatted flowers?

"Girl" the woman replied, "Big, fat, blonde, painted and she moved in next door." • * * After a wild ride, reckless driving through traffic, exceeding the speed limit, skidding over a curb and barely missing a pedestrian, the passenger inquired of the taxi driver, "Do you drive this way all the time?" "No" answered the cabbie, "sometimes I take another route." • * * When I wrote this column Fvb. 15 I forgot to mention how proud I was that Iowa is represented in the White House by the desk given by Mrs. Maurice Noun, Des Moines. • • » As a valentine gift to the residents here the rriembers of the Titonka Women's Federated club brought a large decorated box of assorted cookies. With them was served lemonade, a tasty brew concocted by one of the nurses. • » » Brownie troop 434 with Mrs. Ernest Hutchison as leader has "adopted" Matt Lohring, a resident here and remembered him Valentines day with several gifts which were to be opened, one per (lay for a week. A very nice gesture for a man who has no relatives near here. When I called Mrs. Robert Knuil- sen for news, she replied, "All the news I have is that we are in a mess." I asked what she was doing and she said, "We are building a new house." Well, the mess will eventually be dispelled and how nice a new home will be. Something wonderful to look forward to. Me, all I look forward to is SPRING! Burt Lions Plan Athletic Dinner , For April 16 Burt — Plans were formulated by the Burt Lions Monday night for the annual athletic banquet.
