4-Afoono (la.) Met«*i thwtdtoy, 1 4, Tidbih From Evelyn Mr and Mrs Wallace McDou- arc moving back hero the first of March. Wiien I heard it I was so afr.-iid it was mere rum^r, but a fall from "Mao" Wednesday verified the story. They lived hvic a number of yos'.rs aj;r. and for seven yeais lived in our apartment.

Mrs Tuttle phoned me the other day and said she and Richard had met my cousin Melvin Henderson of Pomona. They had parked at a market and Richard stayed in the car. He was approached by a man who had noticed the 55 Iowa license and inquired where he was from. Since Algona _is the "old home town" to Melvin, he immediately asked if the Tuttles knew rnc. Well, I don't- believe Richard does, but his parents certainly do. Again, "small world." • » • It was a treat for Mrs R. M. Wallace and her sister Marie Grover to get out of doors last week. Marie has been sick with virus pneumonia and her recovery was slow. After an entire month of being "cooped up", a ride down town was quite a treat. I know just how they felt. The last time I was out was Christmas till "Friendly Persuasion" came along. I was pleased with Richard Palmer's review of it. It was an enjoyable picture, • * * ' * Mr and Mrs Howard Seeley have been visited by their son and daughter-in-law, Mr and Mrs Craig Seeley and sons Scottie Bill and Brad of Sioux Falls, S. D.
