ft*-Algona (In.) Upper Des Mo»n« Thursday, January 17, 1957 Tidbits From Evelyn One of these telephone mix-ups ormiTfd iivvhiV ago. Came a Voice I did iu>l rwogni/e and a remark I did' t rntch. hut I knew Whoever \v;.s calling, they know each othc'i well. My reply was hot the expected one and the voice boomed "Who ore YOU?" 1 replied, "I'm Evelyn Cady and t boomed right hack at him. "Who are YOU", and lie laughed and said. "I'm Virg Smith." The conversation ended. I don't know him and he doesn't know mo. • * • The oJher day !he operator had 'trouble healing me and finally said. "I have a mid and I don't hear well." To which I replied. "I have a cold too and I don't 1nJk well." This is enough to keep a family in a \\77.y —Margaret Wuieff. o friend of Mr an I Mrs Oliver Bakken. has t!i<> distinction of living near Rut I;,nd. her posloffice is lv>df\ and the telephone is listed as Humh.tldt. Mr end Mrs Arnold Elbert had a n-.-ent experience they don't care to r neat. They spent a recent weekend at Carroll with their son-in-law and daughter. Mr and Mrs Don Bierstedt, and had to come home Sunday over very icy roads. Mrs Elbert's heart did flip-flops all the way and she isn't sure it's gone back to it's rightful place yet. They drove at 25 to 30 miles per. hour the car swerving and skidding over every inch of the way. anc that, not being enough, they passed a truck with a calf in the back and somehow the animal had slic to the back, was partly out of thf vehicle and about ready to land on too of the Elbert's car. Some honking called the driver's attention and he made the proper adjustment. * * * Rex Post had graduated from the baby class to the little boy snhere. He has been shorn of his blonde curls and now proudly asks friends to feel his "whiskers" —whiskers being the stubble at the back of his neck where the hair was clipped. Not long ago Papa Dick took him to the barber shop but Rex raised such a ruckus the deal had to be called off. In the meantime the cutting of hair has been given a big build-up and this time Rex was r docile, pleased little boy. Meeting grandma Lizzie on the street shortly afterward, he demanded that she look him over and ordered her to smell him too. * * • Mrs Rosa Jones called on me the other afternoon and brought a letter telling of the death of Mrs C. F. Neitzel. She was the former Vannie Tinker, daughter of Mr and Mrs George Tinker of Elmore, Minn. I believe they lived near Ledvard at one time. At any rate, I have known Vannie man" years. She used to I think it took courage to be on the hip.hway last Monday but Lizzie Post and Hazel Vet a braved the elements and roads and spent the afternoon at Humboldt with ?»lrs Millie Klamp. There were to have been other guests but they were timid souls so the two Algona women had to help eat the bounteous food prepared and the rest was divided among friends at Humboldt. * * » Over and over I've said it's a small world & further proof comes with this story told me by Mrs Walter Elbert. She was at'Pasa- dena with her sisters. Mrs John Altman of Irvington and Mrs Ted Morey of Fort Dodge the big day, January 1. and there among tlie thousands and thousands of peo- ole she came fact to face with Mr and Mrs William Heller, former residents here. For a momen none could speak. They could scarcely believe their eye.?. * • « Mr and Mrs Harvey Johnson left last week for Milton, Wis. In join Mr Johnson's brother-in law and sister, Mr and Mr Irwin Thissen. From there the: are going to Winter Park, Fla" where an apartment is awaiting them. They expect to be gone- several weeks. * * * Seems like everybody has the California craze and it was with great interest I read these portions of a letter of a few days ago from my cousin Melvin Henderson whc lives in Pomona. "Well, this ha? been an Iowa vear if I ever saw one! First the Miss Universe, anc then the Rose Bowl Champs From my own observations, both honors were rightly deserved."— "California did a grand job of showing the boys and the country in general' why so many lowans have moved to California. It war about 80 during the way, and about 44 at night. It was wonderful Chamber of Commerce weather, but very bad on our business and the very short water supply It has been one of the driest Decembers on record.
