Mrs. Nels Godfredson and daughter, Mrs. Ben Wibben, Algona, spent three days last week and two days this week at Clear Lake MUCH PUBLICITY HAS BEEN GIVEN tb our First Lady, Jacqueline Kennedy's emphasis oh the historical interest of the Wihte House. I ve seen her television tour of the executive mansion three times and 1 ve loved every moment of it. I think Mrs. Kennedy deserves much credit for restoring the lovely old rooms and for calling attention to the White House as a shrine in our national heritage. Thousands of people tour it each year. . * * * * * I'M NOT AT ALL SURE, if I were First Lady, I would want the whole country peeking into my living quarters. Even if they did agree with my taste in furniture it would be a little disconcerting to think that if you had left a cobweb someplace everyone from Banger, Maine ;p Portland, Oregon could spot it readily. Nevertheless, if Charles Col- mgwood wants to bring his TV cameras to Algona, I am all prepared 0 give him a tour of our place, the Gray House. • • * * * • .' !•:•'•.:<•.• NOW, I AM NOT PRESUMPTION enough to think that I am in he same category as the First Lady of the United States. I'm not even irst lady around pur house. That honor belongs to our dog, Gidgit. Mrs Kennedy is younger than I, prettier, better dressed and probably has a Ittle larger household, budget to operate on than I do. On the: other hand, or I should say on the. other foot, my shoe size is smaller than Jacqueline's and when it comes to havttg furniture piled up waiting '? ,T^f to / ed ', 1 really have il over her - In fact everything around here should be fixed up ! * £ » * ' ' ' WHEN CHARLES COLLINGWOOD COMES to Algona for a televised tour of the Gray House, I have a script all prepared so I can comment on it like Mrs. Kennedy did. We shall start with the foyer. I guess that's what you call that three by five space By our front door. I shall potat out the interesting fact that the rail there which holds all our children s play coats was once a piece of pipe in a plumbing shop. I shall explain that the reason we have that newspaper over the glass in the front door is so that the setting sun won't shine in bur eyes when we watch the TV cartoon program. * * * AS WE ENTER THE GREEN ROOM, I shall divulge the historical facts about the sofa there. It is 21 years old and was purchased the first year of our marriage,, We chose both the fabric and the style at a» Algona store and had it made up special for us. The whole process cost us $69; Although it badly needs restoring now, we feel we have already had oUr money's worth out of it. * * * WE PROCEED TO THE DARKER GREEN ROOM, which is the scene of much activity in the Gray House. Our late dog, Weiner, had seven pups in this room and our present dog, Gidgit, is now eyeing it for use as a delivery room. It is in this room that such events as column writing every Thursday evening takes place; the ironing is done on the board that pulls out from under the bed; and items such as piles of newspapers, apple cores, used tennis shoes and party souvenlers rest fprva_ry,!ng intervals before being-thrown out. i ,•,"-"-*' * * * * v > ' , IT IS IN THIS DARKER GREEN, ROOM that we find, not'the Lincoln, but the, Wegenep bed. We don't know how many famous 'people have slept in it, but it is almost old enough to have held George Washington. It belonged to my husband's grandparents arid once reposed in an alcove in their bathroom. The old gentleman, just before he died at almost 90, used to rest on it after taking his daily exercise by walking around the huge room. It was refinished and restored by my husband and we've been sleeping in it ever since we were married. If it breaks down in the middle of the night just one more time, the slats will have to be restored again. * * * WE MOVE ON TO THE LIBRARY. At least, I guess it should be called the library because somebody is always reading there when we want to get into it in a hurry. You will note that the fixtures — I mean the furnishings — are all by Kohler, or maybe it is American Standard, and these interesting marks on the door came from having to pry it open after a visiting toddler locked himself in. This room is also used as a retreat, particularly by the girls when it is time to do the dishes. * * « THE STATE DINING ROOM in the Gray House has often doubled as a conference room. It is here that we discuss such major strategy Droblems as which creditor will get how much this month, why I have :o serve those left-over casseroles so often, why Bill can't have the car ionight, and who stole whose second-best blouse. The State Dining Room s also the communications center for the Gray House. The telephone s located there. * * * A HISTORICAL SIDELIGHT ABOUT the Gray House is that is was once a stable ! Some people may be of the opinion that it was much icater when the horses lived in it. Anyway, when it was a barn it was ocated in back of the Crose house which many people say is one of he oldest houses in Algona. The original house was divided into two >arts and moved to new locations by my father. He also put the stable on a new foundation and moved it here after filling in a swamp. In 1945 he new wing, now the Darker Green Room, was built and in 1954 the jack porch was added. When I announce these things in my tour of he Gray House, I fully expect Charles Collingwood to interject, "Fascinating !" several times. * * . * ' LIKE MRS. KENNEDY. I must point out that none of the prospective restoration can be done at public expense. I'm trying to figure out a way to do this for the Gray House, but so far I haven't come up with any good ideas. However, if the vast public would like to donate precious old furniture, together with medium-sized checks, like they do to White House, I'm sure we can work out something. In our case, you don't even have to stick to items that originally came from, or should be in the Gray House. If we did that, I'd probably get only a bale of hay and some old horse shoes !
