The choir from Trinity Lutheran church sang for us and then passed fruit salad and cakes to us. Thank you. * * * ' Paul Marlin, kindergarten-age son of "Champ" and Mrs. Martin, didn t think much of having to attend school Saturday morning Mar. 17. In fact he was moved to tears at having to miss his TV programs. * * * Like Mark Twain, who remarked at the reports of his death a considerable time before, his demise. "The report was greatly exaggerated," John Bergman can say the same. It was a close shave for John however, and an experience no one wants to duplicate. He was on a battlefield in World War I and severely wounded, a steel plate in his' arm today to prove his injury. Thought dead, he was placed on a truck load of dead "buddies" but regained consciousness enough to make a desperate effort to get off. He made it, was picked up and hospitalized for some time. In the meantime, word of his death was received by the Pauline McMahon Engaged To Wed , I'm proud to represent the WORLD'S AUTOMOBILE INSURANCE .COMPANY Mrs. June Simpson announces ;he engagement of her daughter, Pauline McMahon, shown above, o James Balfour, son of Mr. and Wrs. Russell Balfour, Nebraska 3ity, Neb. Pauline is, attending 21arinda Community college and James, is being transferred to a missile site at Phoenix, Ariz. .(UDM Engraving) Harold Sundet 706 S. Phillips CY 4-2341 STATE FARlvi MUTUAL AUTOMOBILE INSUBANCt COMPANY Home Office: Bloomington. Illinois S'.l-JO family and memorial services held. In a few weeks he came to prove the tale "exaggerated." Bergman was a resident of Bancroft where the memorial was held. He is still very much alive and active. * * * When the Dick Mittags visited the Bob Kuhns Mar. 18 at Ankeny, they found Bob knee-deep in wood projects. He makes beautiful cupboards, tables etc., and an unusual deal is covering a fire-scarred bargain-priced piano with formica. * • .* Mr. and Mrs. Jack Rube came from Omaha, Neb. Mar. 18 and drove the long way around, Sheffield and Clear Lake to Algona just to see the snow. Oh, of course they enjoyed their visit with the Wayne Hansens and Oliver Bak- kens. Mrs. Rube is the former Judith Ukena. * * * 'Rabbits may be kinda cute but they,play havoc with little trees and shrubs. Ed, Hagg has had quite a time putting boxes around trunks, then conies snow and piles up so the rabbits can reach farther to unprotected bases. Three times he has had to add boxes and now flowering shrubs have been attacked. Other persons have complained, too, and I remember tales Clark Orton told me of his battle with rabbits who raided his orchard. * » ' » Thank you, Janet Zerfass Veer- ver, Downers Grove, 111., for your St. Patrick's note. * * * The Lylc Steeles are back from a vacation in McAllen, Tex., and New Orleans, La. They were inclined to like the coffee, which I've been told is unusually black and strong. One can get the French style, which is what I have described, or one can order the American variety. About equal parts milk and coffee are poured, I the French type, which tana I down considerably. Tliey enjttyec the shrimp and I'd like to have a big serving right now. they also visited a rice plantation in nessee and were given sample bags of it. Well, you may have your rice. That's one thing I do hot like. * * * Fred Dultott, Ledyard, was here to call on me Mar. 16. We had a fine time reminiscing. * * * It amused a group of women, nil of German descent, when their hostess, also German (Luxemberg, really) gave them Irish favors! * * * Patty Balluff was hostess to a meeting of girls, Scouts 1 believe, and each was asked to answer roll call by "A Sign of Spring." One girl said, "Kids are tired of playing in the snow." Patty's answer was "My winter pajamas are Wearing out." (It's , my patience that's worn thin.) , • •', ••* * Larry Dean and Rocky Rockwell have left the Lawrence Welk show to go on their own as "single" entertainers. * * * Who was it that got adverse publicity for having accepted a vicuna coat? Many wondered, as I did, what a vicuna was, so here is the answer. "It's a.>llama, the smallest one. Vicunas run wild in the highest part of the Andes Mountains and are so agile they can escape the cleverest hunters. A vicuna herd consists of from six to 16 females and only one male. The male stands guard while his wives are grazing and whistles to them if danger approaches." , * * * Elizabeth Libott, Los Angeles, enclosed some clippings in a recent letter. One was of Mae Murray and Claire Windsor, well-known movie actress many years ago. They were attending funeral services for Anita Stewart, also well-known years ago, Mae Murray was known as "the girl with the bee stung lip." Remember? She was a blonde, a sort of Marilyn Monroe. So after an emphatic "Never again", Princess Grace has weakened and is going back in pictures. 1 wonder how she managed to get around the Prince? Fat salary probably. (Later Grace announced she doesn't need the money and is giving it to charity. A fine gesture, Princess.) * * * Occasionally I could use little 5 year old Connie Nash to answer my phone if she'd give as candid an answer as she did to me a few mornings ago. A bright little girl, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. Kevin Nash. , . •• * * « •'.,...', It is nice when the Auxilinry "Pink Ladies" meet here for they drop in for a few moments' chat. At the last meeting there were Mrs. Dena Boekelman, Mrs. Duane Dewel, Mrs. Emma Dreyer, Mrs. Martin Becker, Mrs. Anna Presthus, Mrs. Pauline McGuire and Mrs. Ole Ferendahl. * * * If I seem a little deaf at times and ask you to repeat your words, blame it on radios. Three at one time, each a different program, is a little hard to cope with especially when they are coming in with quite a bit of volume. * * * Mrs. William Navoichick and Mrs. Miles Sloniker were two very happy women when they reached the outskirts of Algona a few The news editor of the titiM received the following letter •>and while it is not a letter to the editor, it is interesting, to say the least: FROM THE OFFICE OF THE SEXTON, IOWA Dear Sirs: The S.C.F.P.S.I. (Sexton Commission for Public Safety Improvements) wishes to thank you extremely for the interest and effort you displayed in the Case of Algona vs. Cooper held in the City ,,Hall of Algona, March 21, 1962;, * The efforts of Mr. Cooper,in his drive to have the licensing of Automobile drivers done on a ocal level has long met with our approval. Mr. Cooper is in fact the head of the Sexton Drivers .license Bureau and has the first and last) license isstted by that department. (Which was in effect at the time of his conviction). It may be of interest to you to know that we (S.C.F.P.S.I.) have decided to drop the appeal case which had .been submitted to the Iowa Supreme Court in regards to Mr. Cooper's conviction. The knowledge that so many of you fine citizens are behind us regardless of the court action against us is the motivation we needed to 'spur us on in our drive: Thank you again! B. F.

Our sincere thanks is als extended .to "Swede" Honsbruch a local sundries merchant, wh gave freely of his time and talent (?) to further the cause of justice Minneapolis were there a year ago, she learned the place is swarming the ex-Kossuth residents, there, at Phoenix and other suburbs. Ray Laird and his wife have built an apartment house and •spend the winters there. They have lived at Sioux Falls, S. D. many years. Ralph Laird and Clair Laird and their wives also spend quite a bit of time there. Add to them the Guderians, Livingstons, Willrctt relatives — and I've barley scratched the surface. * * * Know any cases like this? "A ouple who have four grown children recently had another child. When the husband was asked about the new baby, he said, "It's wonderful. But it's h.... mixing a formula again — with bifocals." * * * The lecturer was talking about he crisis over worldover-popula- ion. "Do you realize a woman is jiving birth to a child every minute, day and night? What are we oing to do about it?" A woman n the back row called out, "I think the first thing we' should do weeks ago. They had a ruggei journey from Kenosha, Wis., wner they visited with i sick parents Weather reports around Chicagi were not alarming, in fact on thi normal side, but it didn't take long for the picture to change once they were on the highway. They don't care for a repeat perfor mance. * * * That was a beautiful picture o the Ed Hough residence and should be printed for. commercia purposes. I sent it to a friend in California who was so glad to have it and remembers the beauty of the place and grounds. Dick Palmer remarked that he had qne.o 1 the largest lawns in'Algeria to mow, and no power mower.J-VNo,' replied the other party to the con versation, "The Hough place i; bigger."

The men die some fishing for walleyed pike out on the Mississippi, which is breaking up. Well, my idea ol on a warm day, a placid river and from the shore, thank you. I think the men were running risks on a river breaking up. But I'm "chicken" where water is concerned. Unless it's an ocean liner of course, which I'd like to try. Louis and the doctor were classmates at Loras college, Dubuque. * * * When Mrs. S. E.

Uttssell Buchanan's birthday celebrated with a family dinner Mar. 23. Present were Mrs. Edith Buchanan, Mr. and- Mrs. Allen Buchanan and family and Mrs Carl Wiuff.

The donated items will furnish work for the handicapped and a chance for them to earn a living, rather than be a burden on society.
