t-AI0ona (la.) Upper Dtt Moines Thursday, January 10, 1957 Tidbits From Evelyn All )he year* th*t I have known Bessie Hutchison. I sup- posod her husband bore a nickname. It turns out his name is Budd, the surname of his mother. Bt'ssio was a classmate of mime and near me when we were seniors at good old Hi. 1 don't see her often so was glad to hear a little about her from her sister Maud, Mrs P. O. Dorweiler. The Lawsnns have a lovely farm near Corwith, a rambling old homestead which they love and are reluctant to leave except in winter when they go to Clearwater, Fla. An ideal situation —• a summer homo and a winter one. * * • Grandfathers can get the view* point of Harry Ward, who gave his newest grandson, Kevin Ward, about one month old, a huge sled for Christmas. I know children grow rapidly, but I think Harry was just a little premature in this gift. * • • There has been revival of several of the good old tunes and 1 have often wondered why "A Lemon in the Garden of Love" didn't catch on again. It was popular back in 1907-08 and I first heard it when Lucille Grose and I played it when it came in a bundle of music. I was delighted and more than surprised when I heard it on a recent Lawrence Welk program. Now if Welk would revive "Mandy Lane, "Honey Boy," "Under the Tropical Moonlight" and a few others, I'd be very happy. Ah, the good old days! * » • Helen Hutchison had a phone call from her grandson Charles Carroll, Friday morning. He was very excited and wanted to tell her that his baby brother Stevie who was a year old that day, WALKED ALONE. Of course, Charles added, "I help him on the stairs so he won't fall. I take a hold of him." Charles is all of two years and nine months old! » » » Three local women decided to look at T.V. New Years day and watch the parade at the home of absent relatives of one of the women. They had prepared sandwiches, coffee and other foods while viewing the Rose Parade. After their respective doors had been locked and they arrived at the home where' the T. V. was located, the relative-" was aghast to find she had left the keys in .her purse at home. Now with her place locked up tight, and there being no way of opening any doors, the next problem was HOW TO GET IN her own home. After due dej.ibera- tion and after considerable dis*-' cussiori, neighbors were called in on the conference. To make a long and ; sad story short and pleasant, a kitchen window was pried open, access gained, the precious purse grabbed up, and the women entered the house just as the announcer said, "We are about to see the tournament of Roses parade." *..„*., r The true spirit of Christmas and the spirit of good sportsmanship is left out of persons who can find it in their hearts to rob out-door Christmas trees of their decorative night bulbs. A woman here asked me if I had noticed the lack of outdoor Christmas decorations this year, riot being iq a position to give a fair answer, since I am out very little in winter, I said "No", but that I had heard of trees being robbed of light bulbs and boys caught in the act. That had happened at her place too, and she said it was her belief there had been so much trouble along that line, people had became irked with it and hence had done no outdoor decorating. Mr and Mrs W. A. Barry were at Eagle Grove recently visiting their niece Roseanne Holtzbauer and her husband Peter Baumann. There are some interesting birthdays in the family, one son has an anniversary Dec, 31 and two other children haye birthdays the day before Christmas. Takes a lot of gifts to spread over birthdays and Chrwficnas, With the gre$i exudus to California, it ia jepfreshing to learn that gome people dpri't care for it out there a&J are anxious to come home. Suchis the case of Mr and Mrs Vern Howard, son-in-law and daughter of Mr and Mrs Ed John- spji. The"Howards have been living at Lijdo, oh, it must bo at least a CQUpje of years—and now they are : £ack «*t Fort Dodge where tb<ej? lived before sue- curh|>ing .jU? the "fever." Some tUne ago J had an item on the shipTEtruro,. I believe was it's name, which^'was grounded off the east coast; .Henry Dowd, brother-in-law of Dr. Daniel Bray, purchased it and alter months of patience, aided by friendly, tides and tug*, the ship was put afloat the day after Thanksgiving. It is now being used aas an oil tanker and is en- »x)ute to $he Suez zone. ; . ; 'f : 'v * - * I feel s»*?y for Pr. Janse's dog.

They have a son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Ehvood Richter, living there. » * * The Ray Davidsons reached Lakewood, Calif., ini time for Christmas. They had car trouble at Junction City, Kan., and since the repairs would hold them up a few days, they decided to go from there via bus. They were most anxious to reach Lakewood for Christmas eve as Amy has grandchildren she wanted to share it with—and you now how grandparents are. It meant doing some rearranging of luggage since the LUGGAGE included the turkey Amy won in a drawing here. But Tom Turkey, packed in dry ice, made the journey. But pity the poor orphaned car- abandoned and left to what fate I don't know as yet. * * * While Esther and I were having a Sunday nap, fairies were at work shoveling the snow from the walks. We awakened to the sound of scraping of shovels and got up just in time to see these red coated "fairies" going up the street toward home. Thank you girls, you surely did your good deed for the day, which as a Girl Scout slogan, I believe, as well as for the Boy Scouts. INJURED Dallas Madlan of Inwood was hospitalized last month by an air-blast from a tire, which exploded at his service station. He received a broken right arm and facial fractures.
