9-AI0MO (to.) Upptt DM Mtttfltt Ttondoy, ftttftft It, 195? Tidbits From f ve/yn M*t ttwuwih Pattlfth had fold me she was expecting twins and when the event transpired she promised to Call me about it. Tru* to her promise, she phoned me the other morning from St. Ann where onlf that morning the daughters Trudy Lee and Trecia Ann had been born. Her voice was ehippw and she was apparently felling fine. Such is the mddetn method of obstetrics that women no wtigfr take to bed for ton days. She confided she had been .sleeping in borrowed pajamas of tent proportions—so I won't tell to whofft they belong* ed but will mertliTsay they sure were over sized. The family had planned oft one baby being a boy to keep fimmie combany. The other little girls are Pamela and Trina. Timtnle was quite philosophical when laid there were two new sister* and said to his father. "Oh «tett".*^ we can get to work no* ind teave the women at home/* » » * "Grate" hid ft nic* lltl of parsons who Would be Vefy interesting to spend a "Snowbound" interval. Me, I'll take Bobby Sherwood, 'thank you. I first saw him on the panel of "Masquer* ade." It was taken off ahd then I saw hint doing a few weeks of substitute M. Cing 'Thfi Big, Pay Off." Sincfe then "No see." What has become of ;him, any a&* know? * r • '.*•* A card £»*& iKt A* L, Lottftt says* tt Corona Del Ma*, Calif..with .Morguerite Dalzicl and Ha«l Lusby "Having the time ot llVfet?

More ilories came up aboul our recent show: Storm; ".'* This from Mr ahd Mrs Don'>Sherman and Ralph Elbert.' The'men'had attended a business' meeting at 1 Mapon City,' 'When the 1 party reached Garner they figured the best thing to do Was stay overnight which they did—at a cafe and filling station, along with 20 others who were stranded. Mrs Howard Forsberg and Mrs Ed Pilcher took the letter's daughter Kay Perdue to Mason City the morning after the storm and too soon for snow plows to have the roads cleared. Twice the car got stuck but the women managed to keep going in time for Mrs Perdue to catch the bus for loWa City where she had an appointment at University hospital. When Mrs Pilcher ahd Mrs Forsberg got back to Algona, they were very glad to have some of mother Helen Johnston's good coffee to quiet the'nerves • * * t heard of a cute prank pulled way back years ago by a popular matron when she was a girl oi high school age. I promised not to give her away but the story is too good to pass up. This girl had gone bobsled riding and found herself between two fine Swain who had "hand holding" idfeas soon after the ride was Started. Of course this is only natural, for what would a bob tide be without a certain amount of playful, innocent, amorous antics. Now this girl wore a huge muff and when she felt a hand being slipped into it, she slyly withdrew one of hers, and when tne Iftd on the other side got the Same idea, she hid both her hands Under the muff. I wonder how long it took the youthful Romeos to tumble that they were holding hands with each other. • • » Ad«l White was mentioned as * "shut in" over KLGO-TV and she was greatly pleased to hear from former classmates Norma ManSmith (Mrs Phil Puffer, of Corwith) and Loretta Howie, (Mrs Magnus Lichter, of Burt) Mrs Lura Johnson of Rockford, ahd Mrs George Olson of Mason City. Mrs Olson is troubled with arthritis. She said she is a former Algonan but neither Adel nor I could place her. Who remembers her? Adel said Mrs John Romer had sent her name to Mason City. • * • Across the street from me al this moment I see five generations—the two little Perdue children, mother, Mrs Kay Perdue, REAL grandmother. Mrs fid lecher, great-grandmother, Mrs R. A. Johnston and great great-grandmother, Mrs Emma Dehnert. Right now a picture is being taken of great great-grandma Dehnett and the tots. That's quite a record of geneology. The little ones are Tommy, 3, and Karen, 2, cute little shavers. • • • Speaking of Mrs Dehnerf reminds me that she and Hortense Ferguson were chasing each other around the other day. Both had attended a meeting "of the Congregational women's Bible class at Mrs Murray Mowers. They wore galoshes and in getting ready to go home, had picked up the wrong ones, so they were being driven around in search of each other to make the correct exchange. li is one Ihifif to gtl teady for one baby, the mahfr article need* ed, but it's quite 6 different story when two babies arrive. Sucn xras the case of Mrs Harold Erpelding who ftfcently gavt birth to twitt daughters Julie and Judy. Friends came to the rescue and saw to it that one little girl shouldn't have more than the other little charmer. Mrs Hazel Scott (Robert) and Mrs Patty McGinnis (Dick) gave & shower Friday evening at the home of Hazel's shter Beulah (Mrs Chris Wallukait). * • • • I Mr and Mrs Ktiute Orion are preparing to be missionaries in French Africa. The exact time <or going there has hot been determined and there are many things which have to be f done prior to departure. : ,-At present they are located Hear Los Angeles, and Knute is on deputation. This means he has to travel and lecture a good share of the time. At completion of his work in southern California; they will go to northern California, thence to Oregon and Washington. They plan to be at O'Brien, Ore., in May and there will visit Knute's brother Don and his family, and other relatives. Not long ago they called on Mr and Mrs Clair Snyder. Mrs Snyder is the former Katherine Richardson and both young folk will be well remembered. Katherine is a daughter of Mr and Mrs E. M. Richardson and Clair is a son oi Mr and Mrs Hallard Snyder. •». for Junior Ranchmen Every fellow wants a pair of these genuine Western Buckaroos!
