Army photo) NOTES OF SERVICE MEN LITTLE CREEK. Va. — Sidney D. Kienitz, boatswain's mate second class, 'USN, son of Mrs H. L. Kienitz of Lakota, Iowa, and husband of Mrs Muriel A. Kienitz of Norfolk, Va., arrived at Little Creek, Va., April 8 aboard the landing ship dock USS Hermitage. Commissioned last Dec. 14, the Hermitage is the newest ship in her class. She is larger, faster, more maneuverable, and the first of her type to be air-conditioned. Like her sister ships, Hermitage has a large open hold and ballast tanks for providing dry dock facilities for small landing craft. Her unique construction enables her to take a large number of small landing craft on long ocean trips and launch them easily when needed. Leipholm, Germany — Army Specialist Third Class James E. Ostrum, is scheduled to arrive at Fort Knox, Ky., in mid-April from Germany. Specialist Ostrum is a member of the 54th Engineer Battalion, which has been reassigned to the Kentucky fort.

T !dbits From Evelyn Spring is herel The rhubarb is up! I am looking forward to a pie in a week or two. » • • I was presented with an Easter basket the other day. Alice Condon came with Brigetta Whittemore, Carol Richman; Steve Ostrum and Randall Shierk and the children made the presentation. They are among the seventh graders who have had the project of making and presenting baskets to "shut-ins." The basket was "fnade by Barbara Lau and Barbara Brandow and was indeed a work p?.art. In it were purple grass and assorted colored "eggs". It was such a nice surprise. The basket is really lovely and I told the children it looked nice enough to eat It was certainly done artistically Thanks again, children. • K », Some time ago' Bessie Palmer had a letter from Muriel Packard, former resident here now Jiving at Buffalo, Minn., in which • she had spoke of having heard from another former Algonan, Rena Bradley Duncan of Frank- Jin, 111. This, .was shortly after Christmas and Rena had mentioned a recent visit from her brother, Earl Bradley of Muscatine. Miss Packard answered the letter and it was returned to her marked "deceased." Further inquiry brought a newspaper from Franklin in which it was revealed Rena had^died alone in her home. Seei|fc|a light day and night for a Hmger time than seemed normal,, neighbors investigated and found Rena sitting in a chair, clad ready for bed. An inquest was held and it was determined she had died of a heart condition. It had been known she was not well and EarJ had made frequent .visits in her behalf. At the time of her death he was enroute to Arizona and California with Mr and Mrs Abner Long of Davenport. It was some time before a message reached him and then too Jate for his return for funeral services. Older Algonans will remember Rena well. Her name was Amanda Lurena Bradley, born February 2, 1884. Her husband, Henry Duncan, died in Novenv ber, 1949. A sister Mayme (Mrs Clyde Chitty) died several years ago at Correctionville. Her husband was a dentist there and died a few years prior. Survivors of Mrs Duncan besides Karl are two other brothers Willis of Minneapolis, and Raymond also in Minnesota. Rena was a close friend of Bessie Palmer, Ethel MeFadden and Jessie fhaekery with whom she worked in the telephone office and taught school at one time. f,he was a joily little person, so yen like her grandmother, Mrs per* whom many will reraern* with tenderness. Br«U»y and I hod B __ homes the other day had quite a discussion on ran* home ai0alena, earae «p with s ._ fact that her Wmpe and General competitors in the hftrjVBSB ' told the custodian at the Galena house about this. ^He argued the point and said "Oh now! General Grant' was a LEATHER MERCHANT." Well, I guess it does sound fancier and perhaps more elegant, but nevertheless it cpyer$ j;he same ground. Years ago harness making and a leather merchant were indeed important businesses. Then along came the auto. • * '• Dr. and Mrs L. R. Potter recently attended a "Victory Dinner" given in the Methodist church at Forest City at which 640 persons were in attendance. The Rev. O. W. Brand is pastor of the church and he and his wife went from the Algona church'to Forest. City a few years ago When the Rev, Brand went there the church had a $72,000.00 debt. This has been paid off in less than four years. April 28 there will be another festive day when the church is dedicated and the mortgage burned. The condition of Mrs Brand, who is a semi-invalid, remains about the same. Her - many friends here will be glad to know that she is no worse. The Eighth Graders dancing club will hold its dance Friday evening, April 26, at the high school annex instead of the Lucia Wallace gym. The hours are from 7:30 till 10:00. Jerry Gade is president this year and Sharon Scott is secretary. Hosts and hostesses for the Friday eve^ ning dance are Lee Lawson, Gene Wittkopf, Pat Frankl, Gary Mergen, Nancy Lowman, Patricia Van Buren, Theresa Bradley and Mary Jean Hood. Chaperons and those who made the arrangements are Mr and Mrs Everett Steven, Mr and Mrs G. W. Naylor, Mr and Mrs Richard Balk, Mr and Mrs Howard Long and Mr and Mrs Owen Hurt. This is the "Sock Hop" and prizes will be given for the fanciest socks and the loudest socks. • * * It takes very little fpr women to get up a "coffee" party — the slightest excuse finds them circled cozily around the coffee pot and conversation flows easily and informally. Take yesterday for instance. It is house cleaning time at "The Hen House" and I washed the dishes in the china cupboard while Esther dried and, arranged them. The work done, Esther said, "I need a cup of coffee." "So do I", I replied. On went the coffee pot and an extra amount so Mrs Gilles could drink with us. In popped Mrs George Johnson and we asked her to join us. She agreed if we would let her go home and bring over a pie she had made, a new kind. Since she lives next door in Hazel busby's house, it didn't take long and since I like pie, I said, "Sure, go get it." It was a very goo9 one and unusual. Here is the receipe -™. H crackers rolled tins, 2/3 cup nut meats, 3 egg whites beaten very stiff, V* teaspoon baking powder, Vt teaspoon van- ills, i cup sugar. Peat together (eggs separately of course) and pour into a greased pan. Bake H hour at 325 degrees, Serve with whipped cream ,or ice wt had. ise ^m with ours. It's very tasty. I wish the Johnsons would find another house close by instead of moving back to their farm in Plum Creek. They are such good neighbors. But we will welcome Hazel home April 30, for she too is a very good neighbor. She has her reservn- tion for April 28 and leave.- Corona Del Mar, Calif., after r. winter vacation there since alxnr December 1. Augusta Lavrenz has returned from Minneapolis, when ;he .spent the winter with be isters. She looks just fins, much improved in health, has put on some weight which is an indication of well being. It was only about a year ago she was seriously sick and her return to healtl is a matter for congratulation She says the reason she has pu: jn weight is because her sister? are excellent cooks and the companionship at meal time adds tt the enjoyment of a meal. "Ain't it the truth?" » » • The O. B. Laings and Mrs M. ... Bruch and family had a very lappy Easter. Mrs Edd Lain'g nd five months old daughter •ame via plane from San Diego The nearest point was Minneapolis and Mr Laing met t he- travelers there. All reports and there have been quite a few, give glowing accounts of the baby, a charming little Miss with big blue eyes, a sunny disposition and a very good little traveler.
