"Giant" At Both Algona Theatres Elizabeth Taylor, above, is co-starred with Rock Hudson and James Dean in "Giant," which plays Thursday through Saturday at the Starlite Drive-in theatre; then moves to the downtown theatre Sunday and Monday. Tidbits From Evelyn Six year old Marne Parroit, daughter of Mr and Mrs Dean Parrott is quite grown-up now and behaved very well at the recent Congregational Mothers and Daughters banquet. Two .years ago banquets had little charm for her. When the door to the kitchen opened and she spied her father working with the other men who had served the banquet, she pointed an accusing finger at him and said, You'll NEVER get me to one of these things again!" * • • Mr and Mrs Clarence Morrall are looking to the future. While we have had a cool spring, it may r well be we'll have a hot summer. Just in case, they are building a cottage at Pine River, Minn., on Norway Lake. * * * Mabel and Charley Livingston ^ Warm Weather WARNING! .»•>* 8 Out of 10 Car Radiators In Use One Year, Are 25% or More Plugged The INLAND FLO-TEST, ex- tjlusively at Percival Motors/ forecasts lime-losing, costly radiator trouble BEFORE it dan ihappen. Let us FLO- TEST your radiator now — BEFORE yo'ur heavy summer driving starts I Cost of the FLO-TEST is low! Drive In At PERCIVAL MOTORS blew in from Phoenix last week Sunday. I said to Charley, "Well, how long are you here for now?" "Oh, a couple of hours", he replied. Which is nearer the truth that Mabel or her friends like. * * * Well, I saw the caledium at Florence Hagg's — that is 1 saw the plant. The blossom had withered and dropped before we could get dates arranged. Velma Hagg and I were invited to see the plant and also the new home. I hardly know which I admired more, the lovely leaves of the plant or the home with all its up-to-the-minute features. * » • And have you heard of the man who bought rhubbard and PLANTED THEM UP-S ID E- DOWN? * * * When Lizzie Post left for Topeko, Kan., a week ago to visit her son, Bob and family, she had worked at the Methodist rummage sale that forenoon. In haste to wait on a customer she bumped her shin. At the time she gave it no tHflQght and left Mason City on the Rocket that afternoon. Her leg began paining and by the time she reached Des Moines it had become most uncomfortable. By the time she reached Topeka it was badly swollen-«nd she had to be helped from the train. Hot packs were administered that night and for some time afterward, but in a day or two, she was again O.K. « • * Mr and Mrs Orlan Oil are being visited by the mothers, Mrs Walter Ott, of Hartley and Mrs S. H. Gibbons of Montgomery, Ala. Mrs Gibbons will remain here several weeks. With the advent of the Ott infant, Mrs Gibbons will have ushered in her 15th grandchild. Quite a record. * * • A few friends of the mother of a prospective bride whose "engagement has not been publicly announced yet, get together each week to work on a quilt for the bride-elect. This is a lovely quilt with gayest poppies of applique bloom. The other day one oi the women looked intently at the corner she was basting appliqut bits on and reflectively said, "Who's going to do all the French knots?" A' howl of laughter went up. The dots on the white background were NOT for KNOTS, they were the quilting pattern. * * * Imelda Engesser must be psychic. The night before the Charity Ball she dreamed Joan Stebritz was to win the Queen- ship. And sure enough, she did* • * Mr and Mrs Bruce Holding. 1 son-in-law a? d daughter of Mr and Mrs Mel Thompson, have moved to Huntington Beach, Calif. I was there in 1923 and enjoyed a beach picnic dinner with 20 relatives. It was eaten under a lattice 'building with long tables for the enjoyment of those who wanted to eat near the shore but protected from the sun. When I was there in 1939 the buildings were no longer there. I remember the fish had been baked at a cafe and I think of the remark my cousin Glen Henderson made when he looked at the fish. "I could eat it better if they'd have taken out the eyes." » * * Little did w» know then thai one of the persons at this picnic, my cousin Glen's wife, Dean, would many years hence have her picture in the paper and » nice write-up about her prowess as a fisher-woman. My cousin and Dean lived in Hemet, next door to my uncle and aunt, Mr and Mrs Walter Henderson. A recent write-up on both of them is contained in the Hemet paper and is "spotted," Veteran Rural Mail Carrier Retires." The, item goes on in detail and tells ol a banquet given him and his wife. The other item, is headed Wemgn W«w Top Fish-, ing Trophies at Oceanside." She was awarded four trophies, one of which is the most coveted annual trophies given at the San Diego county resort center for men or women anglers. She will keep the Oceanside Sports Fishing Association's perpetual cup, given for the largest kelp bass caught during 1957 and is re portedly the first woman to win this honor. This kelp bass weighed nearly fifteen pounds. * * * 1 had a chat with Myra Ostrum shortly after she returned home from Mankato where she had been with her son and daughter- in-law, Mr and Mrs Ed Ostrum while convalescing from surgery at Rochester. She had to gu back to Mankato, Sunday, an-j then to Rochester for a check-up. She is feeling fine and is glad the surgery is behind her. Her stay in the hospital was made pleasant by the many gifts, letters, cards and prayers sent by her many friends.
