•ft 2**AI0dna (la.) Upptr DM MdhtM Thursday, March 28, 1957 Tidbits From £ ve/yn Mr* Koaaeth Parslth had told me she was expecting twins and When the event,-transpired, she promised to Call me' .about it. True to her promise, she phoned me-the other-mottling from St. Ann wHere " otify that ntdrfilnf the daughters Trudy Lee and Trecla.-Ann had been born, Her Voice Was chipper) ahd-she was apparently' feeling fine. Such is the modern method of obstetrics that women no longer take to bed foe ted days.' < She confided she had been sleeping in borrowed pajamas of t&nt proportions—so I won'l tell to whom the$> belong- ed but, will merely say they sure were'over; iked. The family had plarined on one baby being a boy . to keep Thnrflij} company. The other little glrte' ar£ Pamela and Trina; Timmie waft- quite philosophical when told'there Were two new sisters and Said to his father, "On Well — We can get to work note and leave the women at home.",. ,* • » « "Grade" had a nice list of per* sons who 'Would be very interesting to spend a "Snowbound" interval. •• Sfc, I'll take Bobby Sherwood, thank you. I first saw him orr-the, panel of "Masquer" ade." It was taken off and then I saw him doing A few Weeks of substitute M. Cing 'Trie Big Pay Off." Since then "No, see." What has become of him, any one know? ' • * r * * ' A card from 1K« Av L, Longs says they are at Corona Del Mar, Calif., with Marguerite Dalziel and Hazel Lusby "Having the time of lives." At that I'll bet they miss Lizzie Post a'nd me. ,' '* V* * Mrs Paul Painter thought her worries' would'be,over when she got hpr boys' home from 1 service. But It isn't so! Worries still pile up. Now it*.? Mary who Js at Lutheran hospital, 1 , FpH Dodge, having her" j tack taken care - of .following an -injury suffered/.in the : 'skating rink ,' explosion and Bob' has ' bee'n' ; at Rochester, having an examination for an eye ailment. ,•_,.,• . t ;More stories came up about our recent snow (•storm. 1 -This fronr Mr and Mrs Don Sherman and Ralph'Elbqrt. The men, had at- tenSed' a business meeting at City? When the party, reached Garner they figured the befit thing to. do was stay overnight which they did-r-at a cafe and filling station, along with 20 others Who were stranded. •'Mrs Howard- Fqrsberg and Mrs Id Pileher took the latter's dati* ghter Kay Perdue to Mason City the morning after the storm and too soon 'for snow plows/to have the roads ; cleared; twice i the car gdt -stuck, but the wdmeri managed .to keep going in time for Mrs Perdue to 'catch the bus fdr"; Iowa City Where she had, an appointment at University ;ho> bltftl. When Mrs -Pilches rand Mrs Forsberg got back to Algona, they were very 'glad to have Sdme of mother Helen' Johnston's coffee to quiet the nerves. "' ' '' ' I heard of a cute prank pulled way back years ago by a popular matron when she -was a gui of high school age.. 1 promised not to give her a way. 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" ideas ' soon after the ride was started. ,Of course this is only natural, for what would a bob 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 the lad 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. * * ••-.'. Adel White was mentioned as a "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, and 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. at this moment I see five generations — the. two little Perdue children, mother, Mrs Kay Perdue, ..
