Don't you wonder where they go in such storms as we had the following day? Maybe the rest ol you know, but I don't. Do they hunt up the old last year's nests, nr do they get in under some^ thint?? Who nrc the "bird Watchers" around here? • •* While Mr and Mrs Tred Bar Iholomew were on their vacation in California they called on former Alsonans Mary Ann Timm (Mrs Hermanson) at Whittier and Mrs May Boles (Mrc Manuel) at. Lynwood. Mary'Ann is the daughter of the 'late Mr and Mrs Fred Timm. Fred was mpnager of the Northwestern Bell Telephone company several years and Was preceded in death T few years by Mrs Timm. Mrs Bo'es and her husband farmed in Cresco township many years ngo. She makes her home with her c on and daughter-in-law. Mr and Mrs Charles Vorhees. I knew the Boles family years ago when Manuel and his brother Francis worked for my father and his pardner George Johnson—"Cady and Johnson" as they were known. Francis, the older of the two was a bachelor. The family nnd Francis moved to Minnesota after they had farmed here. Both men are deceased. Mr and Mrs Bartholomew were house guests of Fred's sisters.

The entire state benefits from this cdntinu* ing source of added revenue. These thousands of employees ' reside right here in Jo^ra, and spend these added millions in every nook and corner of Iowa, for every kind of product and service. > Yet this is only one of many advantages we derive from the brewing industry. For instance, over $62,000,000 is invested in its business in Iowa. More than $23,000,000 per year is paid in taxes, thus reducing the taxes others must pay, And we receive many millions mere through the industry's purchases of farm products. All this means steadily growing wealth for cur state, and for all of us. Moreheart srfio U?es with Pond at Cornplori. I, advis« you to jf<& ftesy wilh the postal personnel for the next few weeks. They are pretty edgy and won't stand for any nonsense. Why? Well, some of 'Uncle's" men have been here on a re-organisation crusade — determined to save Johnny Q Public some money, oj- Uncle Sam more likely. Anyhow there has been a juggling of schedule^ and until the men get accustomed to the new routine, they are •suffering from jurrtpy nerves. * * * I had Beth Atmi* drop ell "War and Peace" on her way home from the library one day recently. I figured if the wealh- ar was not fit, I could read thi book and know what the show was about. One look at tha< fat book and I was sunk. Weather or no weather, I'd get to thf. theatre somehow. And 1 did— the Sunday" matinee.

Ah SPRING. The picture was long, but 1 'ttiew before hand that it would be. Il was most artistic, even the trek home by the vanquish ed French had beautiful settings Take it all in all, it was one ol the lovliest picture I've ever seen. Anyone want to argue with me? * * * ' Rulh Raney spent Friday eva- nine, with me and among the various interesting topics which were pursued was books. Ruth does a lot of really GOOD reading. Me" I'm the Who-donit type though I have read and greatly enjoyed "Anna Karen ina", '"Farewell to Arms", "Random Harvest" and others of that »ype "Rebecca", for instance. What we were incensed about was the possibility of having legislators decide what books we may read and which are taboo True, there is a lot, of trash, magazines which should be banned, funnies that aren't funny and juvenile reading should be decent and in good taste. Bui from an article we had read recently, the adult reading was -to be dealt with and well, to make it short, Ruth and I considered our law jriakers were getting out of hand. Where are oyr constitutional "liberties" and "rights"? * * • " Twas a dark and stormy night" Thursday and Verne!] Ludwig, driving home from the K.
