Algona Municipal Utilities "LIVE BETTER ELECTRICALLY" Phone CY 4-3535 - Your Newspaper proudly announces the appointment of NORTH IOWA DISTRIBUTING CO. 209 So. Main St. Phone CY 4^4835 as distributor of MILLER HIGH LIFE to the. people of ALGONA AND KOSSUTH COUNTY In bottles in cans Rdy and Mabel Huteell returned April ? from a two week trip. First they went to Washington, D. C. and Arlington, Va., to visit with their son and daughter-in- law, Fred and Loema, and three children at the latter place. Then they went to Atlanta, Ga., to visit Mr. and Mrs. Russell Glllwearl. The "sunny south" may have been that, but the temperature was only 38, rather low for that area this time of year. However flowers were in bloom and everything was lovely, Ah, Atlanta-romantic, history filled Atlanta. Doesn't it give you travel ideas? • They "crossed Tennessee and Kentucky, also romantic states to my mind, and up to Pevely, Mp., near St. Louis. There they visited Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Wheeler, former Algonans. Oh yes, they were glad to get home but vote the south interesting. •* - * » One interesting portion of the (rip was meeting Rev. Odom in the Methodist church after which our local church was patterned. The puzzling part is the church at Sterling, 111. has 1906 engraved on the corner stone. Ours is 1898. The Sterling church-is made of gray stone, the room arrangements are in reverse to ours and the foyer is much wider. So wide that as time went on, a chapel has been partitioned off, but on the whole, the buildings were much alike 1 . Rev. Odom was born in Algona and was surprised and delighted when he learned the callers were from here. He had been back a few years ago in search-of his birth certificate. Does anyone remember a Pesh family that lived about ten miles from town? His father worked for Mr. Pesh, reputedly wealthy. It was new and unfamiliar name to the Hutzells and does not ring a bell with me. Leota Geigel remembers them as neighbors of the Bodes and that her father George Hackman bought and had butchered beef and pork for their winter consumption from them. Who else remembers them? * * * Now I KNOW spring is here! It took three fat, crimson breasted birds to convince me, and then their early-morning songs added further verification. On top of this proof, Mrs. Dean Taylor told me Apr. 7 she was washing windows OUTSIDE, and while it was a chilly job, it was worth it, seeing the outdoors more clearly from the inside. Yes, the housecleaning bug is biting several housewives with whom I have talked. > * * * And isn't' it good' to see' riiiid? Mrs. Larry Leaneagh may not agree with me for I was told her tots were having a fine time plowing through the Terhune garden which was of just the right consistency for messing around in boots — white ones at that! * » * News from far away places proves again 'tis a small world. Capt. Harold Streit saw Dr. Thomas Kenefick's name on some reports and since he is acquainted with the local Dr. John Kenefick family, he made inquiry from Dr. Thomas and learned he is a son of Dr. Emmet Kenefick, St. Paul, Minn., and nephew of Dr. John. Dr. Thomas was taken from a five year fellowship at Rochester. Minn., for service and is with the sixth fleet at present in the Mediterranean. Dr. Harold Streit is a nephew of Matthew Streit and Eva Smith and is medical fleet officer. Carole Metzger Engaged To Wed Radio Man Announcement of the> engagement of Carole Metzger, above, daughter of Mr. arid Mrs. John ; Metzger of Estherville, to Dennis O'Rourke, son of Mr. and Mrs., Gordon O'Rourke of Lake Linden, Mich., was made recently. The bride-to-be is a granddaughter of Mrs. Clara Bollig of Bancroft, and a niece of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Metzger of Algona. Miss Metzger is an employee in the library of the University of Minnesota and her fiance is employed at station WMIM, Minneapolis. Wedding plans are not as yet finalized as to date. (UDM Engraving) He took Dr. Thomas to his home at Naples for dinner, gave him a ride in his Mercedes-Benz, and "a good time was had by all". * * * My! Such cut-ups! How silly can one get. Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra, both 'of whom I dislike intensely, and Sammy Davis, whom I dislike even more if it is possible, and the pie throwing episode given as NEWS and written up in the papers via TV and dailies! I'd be ashamed to be such a moron. Talk about "kid stuff". * * * If you like a book with chuckles, read "It all Started with Columbus." * * * Theodore Kenne had a birthday Apr. 5 and Adele White one on Wednesday. Both were celebrated on their respective floors with cake and coffee. And an added highlight was the appearance of the Rythmettes with their fine singing of several selections and showing of Easter bonnets — very cute. * * * We have had a treat from women of the Farm Bureau — homemade cookies, very delicious. * * * Mrs. Adda Price had a birthday one day last week and Velma Hagg spent the afternoon with her and her sister, Mrs. Grace Breckbill. While there, a phone call came from Mabel Livingston of Phoenix, Ariz, to Mrs. Price. All had a chat which was greatly enjoyed, Mabel reported Phoenix as being very warm.

I don't like extreme heat. * * * I received a picture a few days ago of my new relative, Mark Charles Lavvson and his mother Jean Cady Lawson, Mason City. Statistics, Mar. 21, 9 Ibs., 9M> ozs. and 21'/a inches long. He's a cute little guy. * * * We miss Ed Studcr around here. His funeral services were held Apr. 7 at Convith. He was good company, alert and active for 87. He loved music and he and I had a few "jam sessions", he with his accordion and I with my Hawaiian guitar. * * * Mr. and Mrs. Albert Hagg expect to go to Waukon before long to be with their daughter and family. The daughter, Rhonda, 7, will have heart surgery at University hospital, Iowa City, before too long. * * + Now that spring is here, I'll close the winter season with these apt quotations — "Winter dragged it's icy hemline up and down the coast — The air smoking with snow — Windshields bowing and scraping — The difference between winter and summer is that in winter the bare limbs are on the trees. * * » How little we know about the huge projects the government heads. I had such an interesting talk with' Glenn Shore, who told me a little about his son, Jesse, who has been sent from Omaha, Neb., to Colorado Springs, Colo., on a government engineering project. Tunneling into a mountain i3 only a very brief description of what is being done. The son, Bruce, is also in service and at present is on a cruise in the Car- ribean. He has been there since February and vill be there until some time in May. » • • Leotn Gcigcl and her St. Genevieve group were here a few days ago-sang some songs and some of the children played instruments. They had planned to come at Christmas, but she knew we were practically swamped with carolers so she waited till Easter time. * » * More puppies! This time Boston terriers. Four born to the Don Sjogren dam and having to be fed by eye dropper every few hours day and night. What did you say about leading a "d6g's life?" Seems to me they have it pretty soft. It's the owners that come in for a bad deal. The pups are now seven weeks old and presumably on their own. ' * * * Mrs. Viola Studer came Saturday to see her mother, Mrs. Jennie Lukin, who observed her eighty-eighth birthday Apr. 8. Mrs. Studer's wrist is out of the cast put on a few months ago when she fell on the ice and broke it. Now I remember who it was who got in bad giving a vicouna coat. It was Bernard Goldfine who gave expensive gifts to political "big-wigs." Remember? * • » * Albert Hagg wants to go west, too. Beats all how many people listen to Horace Greeley's words, , April 17, 1962 Affleflo (ta.) Upper Pe« "Go west young man — go west." Mrs. Hagg isn't enthused about it. A quote from Melvin's letter — "We do not have much news here other than the constant building of homes. Where are the people coming from, and what do they do for a living? It has been one big mystery to me. Reports are that a city the size of Long Beach is coming to southern California each year — 1000 per day or 350> 000 per year."
