l-A!jfef»o (ta.) Uppit DM Melnei Thursday, May 43, 195? '"».. »;« Tidbits From Evelyn Mr aftd Mrs Charles Fox al- tended the funeral services last \vf.-ek at Forest City for Rev. Frank Barslou, 93, uncle of Mrs Fox. He had previously served as pastor there of the First Con- Eregntional church. Among other pastorates were Cedar Falls and Whiting. • * * Thank you Florence Danson Scholten of Spirit Lake for your card. Fin glad you like my column. It is always nice to hear from a classmate. You will be sorry to learn of the death of our friend Earl Crane at Long Beach, Calif. » * * When Rickie Post was iold he was to have surgery for removal of adenoids, he said he preferred to stay overnight at St. Ann. "It is so quiet out there," he said. » * * 1 think Marilyn Brown is going to have her hands full. With three tots in the family, plus a husband and house, she will lead a busy life. There are three birthdays to celebrate in May. Jeffrey celebrates his second anniversary May 20, Steve will be one year old May 26, and Cindy Lynn was born May 15. What a lovely little family. * « 4 I was so glad to hear Bill Austin with the "Songfellows" the other day. Hope he is back "for keeps." No one has quite the "Austin Touch." If you don't believe it, listen to WHO Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 12:25. How's that for a plug? • * * Pity this poor doggie, taking e trip with his beloved family and becoming very sick. He couldn't eat, had many spells of nausea and when the "vet" was called. he diagnosed the case as nerves! Doggie was given a sedative and slept hours and hours in the strange bed where, he was. visiting. Upon reaching home Doggie romped,.happy and content, -went to his own little bed and curled up for a long and satisfying rest utterly and supremely joyous Who says a dog hasn't Dog sense The persons visited (were to be away a few days and left several telephone numbers to cover every emergency, so they thought. When informed a veterinarian had to be called, the host exclaimed, "Well, who in the world would ever have thought HJ2'D be necessary." , , Surgical patients are not pampered now as they were in the "good old days." Now, the patient is made to get out of bed the next day, walks a few steps, dangles legs over the edge of the bed several times daily. Fred Bartholomew had major surgery at the Veterans' hospital, Des Moines, a, few weeks ago. The next day he was up a little. -He is getting along very well and now enjoys food—a good sign for all sick persons. The list of accidents is usually a long one and I know of three here, one of which is not recent. Leona Bartholomew slipped in a store a few weeks ago, and broke a bone in her foot. She has the cast off now, can get around without a cane but doesn't feel quite like doing a toe dance. Josephine Dittmer fell two weeks ago and broke her right wrist. She will have the cast on at least six more weeks. Arleen Schaffer, five year old daughter of Mr and Mrs Charles Schaffer, has a very sore finger. When going out the door the other day, she caught her finger and tore the nail off completely. Now there is a painful injury too. iSo much for bad news this week. * • * Dr. and MJS L, L, Snyder and sons, John, Tom and Mark left Tuesday on a vacation trip to Visalia, Calif., and.jSanta Rosa, Calif., where they will visit Mrs Snyder's brother-in-law and sister at their ranch at the former place and mother, Mrs Charles Scott, at the latter. They are going via New Mexico and Arizona and will return via Yellowstone National park, and the Black Hills. They have a station wagon and $mall sleeper trailer and will camp out all the way. Mrs Luefla Baker is again at home after five months spent in Tucson, Ariz. She didn't come right home after reaching Iowa, but instead was at Kanawha e few weeks with her sister, Mrs If. H. Stewart who has been gick. Mrs Baker would welcome gome sunshine and warme.' weather, as would the rest of u; Jowans. After months of sun anc warmth, Iowa's chill and cloudy days are r»ther har' to take. w * * » AJgona schools are lagging behind in graduation it seerns U me.

Louella Malueg assisted the children in serving the cup cakes, cookies, ice cream and lemonade. "Teacher" apparently "rates" with the children. Seems to me children have much more fun than when I was in school. I don't remember such festivities. All I recall is staying after school a few nights to string popcorn and cranberries to decorate a Christmas tree. AH. SCHOOL DAYS1 * * * Mr and Mrs John Snere are related to Margaret Truman—in fact she is aunt of Mr Snere. Yes indeed it is the truth—the only thing is this Margaret Truman is NOT the daughter of Harry. * * * It is always fun to talk with friends of one's youth and you can imagine how Mrs Nannie McMahon enjoyed her visit with Charles St Clare (or maybe it is spelled St Clair, I forgot to ask her). When she was in Marshalltown recently spending a week with her son-in-law and daughter Dr. and Mrs Ralph Carpenter, she called on Mr St. Clare, 92, whom she had way back in 1893. He lives In an apartnient, has a daughter who lives in her own home but sort of keeps an eye on her father even though he is in very good health. Back in 1893 he was associated with the Algona State Bank, a then new place of business headed by A. D. Clarke and Harvey Ingham among others. His name is a romantic one—just the sort to carry on romantic shenanigans. Mrs McMahon admits he was a handsome chap and girls were no different then than now—each hung on his every word, atwitter and hopeful that he would ask them to dance! Ah, the eternal feminine! Mrs McMahon is 85 years YOUNG and I always enjoy her reminescenes. Graduates, 8th Grade, At St. Benedict Si.
