Tidbits From Evelyn • ~ :;—"i !—•«=««< ift IWS laoinifon booth. The Question is "What is a caledium?" The answer, "1 dunno", so you missed the question and the $$$$. I missed ft too, but for the benefit of the ignorant, it is a flowering plant. 1 never heard of it either till Al- •bert Hagg told me about the. bulb his wife bought at a dime store, f»fnted it, and now the darned thing has grown to such proportions they figure they may have to move out to give way for the plant. It's leaves are huge, the flower unwinds from a long stem, and it grows so fast they can practically hear it swish upwards. * * * Hwiha fiau is tmile a hartl* culturist and it has her baffled. Albert promised Velma Hagg and I a trip to his home and a view of this unusual plant. * * * The death of Veda Neuman Hedrick brings to mind her par* ents, Mr and Mrs Otto Neuman, who for many years had what was then known as a "racket" store here. I never knew just What "racket" meant. And I don't mean to infer Otto ran his v business in any way but upright and honorable. 1 could hardly believe the story told me some lime ago by Mart Me Call, 1 believe it was. Anyhow, a group of young fellows were gathered in his store and Otto had a huge firecracker that hadn't sold for the July Fourth festivities. Otto suggested that a good way to get rid of that cracker was set fife to it when Grandma Kuhn came along with her mule cart. It seemed a bright idea, so when grandma came along, the thought was set to action with the result that the "mule turned right- about-face ift record speed. But the tale didn't end there. Grand' rna had some stalwart sons who met Otto the next day and Otto got the worst end of the deal. * * • The bridge club to which MM James- Egli belongs has a smart idea. The lows have to do the dishes. Isn't that cute?, Karen Haase and her friends Mary Jo and Joey Barnett tried mixing Hi-C and Seven Up. They liked it and wrote to the company and asked if it had ever been tried. The president of the 7-Up company wrote back, "I PIONEER Hybrids:/ Bring'BetterTLiving lTo\Farnr Families don't like ?-Up in Hi C, 1 like ?-Up in Me." * * * t don't Ihink th« C. ft. Quit* ton's dog likes me. Every time I call there for news, she barks in an unfriendly manner. , "fiuttoh butfon, who's 90! fh* the button" can be" answered very well by Mrs Clifford Ringsdorf and Mrs W. B. Ridge wfco enter* ed the recent contest and Mrs Ringsdorf won first prize, a bed room suite, for taking up the mosi buttons. Her number taken up was even greater than that of Mrs W. B. Ridge, who with 99,442 buttons won second prize, a chromium dinette set. * * * Louie Lett* tald the play "Such a Oirl" put on by members of the Walther League of the Trinity Lutheran church was very good but he feels the attendance would have been much greater if they had avertised more. Yes, advertising pays. Mr and Mr* John Schlmm*! aren't too pleased with this chilly spring weather. They have hot beds which at time show traces of frost on the windows ahd that "ain't good." They have added three times as much ground to the area they have had for "glads" etc. Mrs Schimmel explained to me the layers of mulch and dirt they use. Sounds kinda complicated to me, but then, I never was a gardener. I tried raising sweet peas once but the results were so discouraging I never did it again. Clark Orton doesn't like the weather either. It slows up work on his fruit farm. * * * I hope it was an office gremlin that messed up an item awhile ago. It read "Leo Lichter and children." Now Leo Lichter has no children and Joe Lichter does. 1 know the families apart, so I don't figure I made the error, but they were kidded quite a bit by their friends. * * * Mrs Maitie McWhorter says she has been cleaning house. She says she's fagged, mind and body. She and how many hundred others? Lizzie Post left Saturday afternoon from Mason City for Topeka, Kan., where she will visit her son Bob and his family.
