The William Funks and Duane Rileys went fishing last week £( Fox Lake and the Lewis Marshalls were at the Okobojis at their cottage. There are signs of the season's activities at Clear Lake. I was at Mason City lasl vfrek Tuesday, Mabel Livingston and I, and we stopped at Witkes hoping to have dinner there but a sign read, "Closed today to serve you better tomorrow." It showed signs of awakening around the lake, some more cottages being built where there are already so many they stand practically cheek to cheek. * * » Arden Orion went to San Mateo, Calif., several weeks ago and looked the place over to see how he liked it. He got a job %vith a company doing his professional work—tree surgeon—then flew back to Des Moines to join his family, sell the home there pack and hasten back to California. He and the family spent the weekend here at the parental Clark Ortons. • • » Did you ever eat smelt?

The heads and "innerds" are removed, the fish is cooked skin and all, in deep fat. * ' * »- • The A. L. Longs and Cat 1 find- ley are back from their wintei vacation and are again at their respective homes; Davenport and Muscatine. A <prd from the Longs says they had two ween:* of home life and are again on their way to Wellsville, Pa., to visit Abner's son-in-law and daughter Mr and Mrs Glee Pitcher. It was probable Earl would go along. They have had a wonderful trip to Phoenix, Ariz., where they visited Abner's other son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Carson Taylor, . thence to California where they saw Marguerite Dalziel, her mother, Mrs Hazel Lusby, Mrs Mary Pratt at Long Beach and Mr and Mrs Horace King at Sunnyvale, and I don't know how many more ex-Algonans. , * * * Aldean McAdams believes in the old theory that when an oak tree puts forth leaves, there will be no more frosts nor cold weather. My Esther says there is also a theory in Minnesota that it is time to plant corn when the oak leaves are the size of a squirrel's foot. Just how would they compare—and what if one animal's foot is smaller than another! """ * * * Mr and Mrs Leroy Schepp- mann have been here from Arlington, Va., visiting at the par- erual Henry Scheppmanns and with Leroy's broth'er-in^law and sister, Mr and Mrs David. Smith They are enroute to the'Philip- pines where Leroy will be in service two more years which will round out his 20 to make j him eligible for retirement and i a pension. Mrs Smith says he'll probably keep right on—the ser' vies is under the skin. * * « .
