If I were , to follow t,he "nothing but fb<- | truth" routine for today I'd begin ; by confessing I "don't want to da | this column this morning.

A rather strict one to be sure, but there was absolutely no thought of surgery. * • • Seven months old 'Tina" Holx- hammer, granddaughter of Mr and Mrs Glen Raney, received and also gave her parents, the Rev. and Mrs Robert Holzhammer a perfect valentine — her FIRST TOOTH! The Hohhani- mers now live at Dubuque and moved a few weeks ago from Iowa Falls where the Rev. Robert was pastor of the Episcopal church there and at Webster City. This is a definite promotion. I think Dubuque is a charming old city. I've been "briefed" by Ruth Raney on the residence and I'd love to ramble through the place. The lower floor is used for parish purposes, the second and third floors are for family use and the attic with its dormers and cupolas whet my interest. Dubuque is full of those old mansions. Theresa Ostwinkle had a recent letter from her mother, Mrs &oy Phillips saying she and rier husband have, purchased a c^fie «t Abiquiu, New Mexico, e/fa Phillips has been an efriployee tot the government in construction work for some time and has be%n sent hither and yon, Alaska, fast coast and south-West.

She is still at the nursery school and Sharon (Helen's daughter) has one more year in school. .Parkers came from Des Moines and also the Sorstedts. I plan to be back there (Iowa) for the summer and maybe stay." The Parkers and Sorstedts are former Algonans, Mrs Parker was the former Essie Nellis. The Sorstecjts had a dress shop here in the corner of the Algona hotel. Mrs Sorstedt is a sister of the late Jim Walters, well known here. • * * « Liazie Post doesn't 'make monkeys of people but she docs make them FOR people. Not that she solicits the work, but they arc cute toys and many people have . asked to make them for gifts for -tots in the family. She s added t an attraction to 'her list—a clown doll—He's., a cuj little fellow with bells on hands and feet and a gay,garb 01 yoyos . . A week ago today Chris and Beualh Wallukait and the latter's sister, Mrs. Robert Scott left for Roswell, N. M., to visit a brother-in-law and sister of the women. Chris said they wanted to get ahead of the snow storm. Well, the snow predicted didn't get here as quickly as he anticipated, but it got here. Bculah said they will of course go into Mexico and she was looking forward to shopping in the markets there. I guess there is no known article which can't be purchased there, and some very lovely "WIND" Now at Algona SUNDAY FOR 2 DAYS Lauren Bacall i* a business airl who marries the profligate h*ir to a great fortune in "written on the Wind/' exciting ttnivernil- Intaf national technicolor drama in which the co-start with BOfk Hudson, Robert Stack and Dorothy Malone.

Suckow and his daughter Ruth (Mrs Ferner NUhn) and Wfts glad to have the picture of her to add to my scrap book. Ruth was in school with me way back in first grade when Miss McEntite, aunt of Lcighton Misbach, was our' teacher. Shn sat' in a seat in front of me and I well remember her habit of twining a lock of hair around her forefinger. • * » _... . Merna Or ton dropped in Sunday morning after church and I was glad to see she has recovered from her recent sickness which kept her at St. Ann -a week and was followed by r> week of convalescence at Mason City with her son-in-law and daughter, Wilson and Buli Abernathy. In the meantime the son Dennis came from California and I think that was good "medicine" for her. These Moms are happier when the "chicks" arc close at hand. • • , -v Lt. Larry Douglas and his wife are parents of a son born Feb. 7 at Houston, Tex. He has been named Timothy Scott and has for a playmate a brother Mark who is only a year old. Little Timothy pulled a fast one on his parents and got here a couple of months ahead of schedule. However, in spite of his haste, he is a sturdy little fellow, and his mother is getting along nicely after blood transfusions. His grandma, Mrs Vern Mettler of Mason City, is on the job taking care of him and the family antl will stay at Houston as long as needed. In case she has to come home, grandma Vi Douglas will replace her. * * * What was going on 33 fears ago?

(He was a brother of the late Mrs Ed Hough.) — Former President Woodrow Wilson died at his home in Washington, Feb. 3. * * * I was saddened io heat of the death of Irene Jamison Gilmore, whom I have known many years. She was several grades ahead o|f me in schkrol and I became betteV acquainted with her later through her cousins, Dr. Colder McWhor 1 ter, Mildred, Gladys and Ethel, his sisters. Dr. McWhorter was senior intern when .< Iwas a patient at * Presbyte'rian hospital, Chicago, and Irene came to call on me at various times Over the years. She is the second person of the class of 1907 who has passed on, Alice Kresensky WeisbrocV being the first. Others in her class were Hazel Fuller, Lusby, Albert ReMd. Elsie Glasier", I've forgotten her married name, her brother Lee Glasier, Raymond Bradley, Clare Clapsaddle, Hal Hudson, Edna Cole, Beth Smith and oh, several others. Irene is survived by her daughter Edna and a son Marion. She had made her home at Clear Lakv for some time. * * • Somehow the residence of Mr and Mrs Jerry Beamish got "juggled" in my recent item and read as though they live at Des Moines. This is not the case. They live at Fort Worth, Tex., and, it was at Des Moines Mrs Beamish's patents, Mr A. B.
