fi-Afgona fid,) Upper Dei Molne* fu&ttay, April 24, 1942 T met Mrs. William Hughes, Davenport, the other day when she stopped in my room to make some inquiries. I have often talked with her mother, the late Mrs. Jim Kelsb, and felt acquainted with Mrs. Hughes because she had of ten given, me news of her. Mr. Kelso has been hospitalized at St. Ann and the question! now I s whether to bring him to Goo Samaritan when his doctor dis misses him, or take him to th home at Davenport. . * * * The Orvillc Wicks have sue cumbed to the dog proposition, house pet, to replace one Barbar had some time ago — an outdoo pet. This is a "no smell, no shed variety, so lola says • and hopes and she has hopes along othe lines familiar to small do owners. He has been named Sput nik, and is a black poodle. •''*.* * Word to friends of the Lloy< Pools is that they have left Mesa Ariz., where they spent the win ter and are to be iri California ir days. From there they will gi to Denver, Colo, to visit with their daughter, Lola and family and will return to Algona abou May 1. * * * Word was received of the deatl of Mrs. Walter Belton at Gardena Calif., recently. I'never knew her but Walter was in one of my classes in school and I remember he drew a picture of Zada.Brun- son, head and shoulders, so unmistakably her it seemed as though he would go far in art. ] don't remember just what he ever did with his talent and I do recall the Beltons moved to California many years ago. • # • Mrs. Joe Tschettcr has been at Rochester, Minn., to see her brother-in-law Henry Tschetter of'Jas- per, Minn., who has had heart surgery. She is under the impression a plastic valve was inserted. It is possible I know, for I know a man who has had similar surgery and is in fine health. What marvels surgeons perform. • * ' • ' Seems as tho" sometimes — "One man to another at a lunch counter. "If this is a restaurant chain, I'll bat we are eating at the weakest link." * • • Wedded fojiss! "Wife, replacing phone, to husband: "A panel of impartial housewives has just canceled your poker game." . :• • ,('•';*. * '. I - * Could hav» happened here a few weeks ago. "Mother to son on snowy morning: "You've listened to four stations. If school was going to be closed, you have heard by now." Flo, Ruth Walston, May Danson arid I were "runts" and none reached more than five feet in adult-hood. I remember a cantata we were, in — four "butterflies". I even remember the sheer black costumes with the gold paper trim. Ruth put on a lot of weight years afterward, May was a little pluriip- ish, Flo tips the scales at 115 and I am 110. * + * April 13 — It seems too soon for class plays, but the end of the school year isn't too far away. Jack Allen teaches at the Wesley-, Corwith school and the senior class play which he directed was pre sented Friday evening. His moth er, Mrs. James Allen, aunt Mrs Esther Benson and cousin Mrs William Bestenlehner, attended Home talent plays are such fun Remember when we used to have a lot of them? Betty Stillman dropped in for a brief chat today after seeing her mother, Mrs. Minnie Holland. She and the judge are going to LaCrosse, Wis., for the Easter weekend with their son-in-law and daughter, Dan and Marcia Jones and family. They haven't seen them since Christmas and that is a long time to be away from grandchildren. • » * It doesn't pay to be forgetful. so Maude Dorweiler found. It hfcs meant a thorough cleaning and even a deodorizing treatment to nake their home livable after she eft a meat roast on high heat 2% lours. The meat was burned almost to ashes and the stench in he house called for a gas mask, almost. I know a little of what it might be for I 'recall the time Harold Jergenson let a steak burn o a crisp while he napped when e and Connie had our apartment. * * * Joy, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. awrence Hutzell, and her hus- and, Leroy Johnson, who is tudying for the ministry and fill be graduated soon, came to isit the parents recently. They re located at Rock Island, 111. ^ here the families went to Kelvin to visit with the Larry Hutzells. * « . * Rev. J. R. Fountain of the First Baptist church has resigned and ilans to move to Prescott, Ariz He has for some time been ai I read a Cherokee item in the Register Saturday telling of the popularity of the rabbit in the Honsbruch drug storo window there. The rabbit was called Harry and then lo and behold, six bunnies claimed Harry as mama. I suppose the name was changed to Harriet. • * * Jackb's new hair-do called thr "brioche" (wonder how it is pronounced) looks sillier than the "bee hives" of 1910 which I was foolish enough to wear. When my hair looks awry I console myself by saying "Oh, that's the B. Bardot look." • • • Two couples went to a small town near a county seat town for dinner not long ago. They thought the crowd was patrons and then to their chagrin found they had crashed a wedding party. • » « When Mrs. Walt Zcntncr told me she had been at Minneapolis recently to see her father, Walt Dally, 1 asked about Flo Dally, his sister whom I knew years ago.' licted with,an acute sinus ailment which at times makes n't hard for im to speak. Doctors have urged is moving to a climate more uitable for cure, or at least ale- iation of his trouble. Rev. Albert would i Urch nas bcen assisting, but he does not expect to be in this vicinity long as he is awaiting a call to a pastorate. The Fountain.? were given a farewell party recently following a church meetinp and were presented with a wall clock as a farewell gift. I wonder if the band shell still stands on the court house square as it die' when I was parked nearby several years ago. * * * Beth Annis left Apr. 7 on a well earned vacation of a month tr Escondido, Calif., where she will visit Mrs. Emily Moore. At San Diego, she \\rtl visit with sons of Mrs. Moore. The library won't be the same without Beth, but wo hope she has a wonderful trip. * * * Spring has come to my room this 14th day of April. A bouquet of crocuses-lavender, yellow and white, brought by Mrs. Clara Pompe. She gave me a bit of news. She was visited last weekend by her granddaughter and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Jordan, DCS Moines, and the littlo daughter, Christy Lynn. Mr.s.
