(la.) Upper D« MolnM thwrwley, June 6, 1957 Tidbits From f ve/yn The older residents here will remember an Engle family of •which John, Irvm and May were members. Mae was graduated with the class of 1908. I don't recall much about the others ex- <-ept as churvh members they attended the Methodist Epworth League along with Milton Norton, his sister Edna Norton Ferguson, Ray Potter. Earl Crane, Melvin Muckey, Verle Vincent, Oscar Rosewali and his younger brother "Katz", Zada Brunson, Mattie Thorpe and myself in the younger group and Neva Patters<'n, Lloyd Mitchell, Florence Brown, Clifford Clark, in th« older group. What this is leading up to ij that John studied for the ministry at Morningside, Sioux City, was graduated in 1914, and died at San Dtego, February 28. The family moved to California some time ago and John continued ii the ministry, retiring in 1955. He is survived by his widow, two daughters and a son who is also a minister. The brother Irvin lives at San Jose. Of Mae there was no particular news. As Milton says "Another of our era gone." * * * Patty McOlnnis phoned tn* io tell me of the birth of a son to her husband's brother and sister in-law, Mr and Mrs Denver McGinnis at San Jose, Calif.

I had a chat with Sophia and learned she had surgery during the winter but is now fecilng fine. She is teaching and so is Bob. He has three classes -in speech and recently was at Dubuque with some members attending a contest. His students won a few firsts and seconds. He also has charge of the library at Guttenberg. He and his wife have signed up for another year. •-.,. » « » One learns a lot about people and attitudes just watching them on the streets when the poppy sales are in progress. Some turn indifferent heads and are seemingly blind all at once. Many give a curt "No" when asked to buy, but on the other hand 1 saw one woman approach Lizzie Post Thursday afternoon, purse- opened several feet away and request a poppy. * » * This it a bad season for cui worms, says Mrs Johft Schimmel who ought to know. She and her husband grow beautiful "glads" and set out dozens and dozens of tomato plants. It isn't unusual for cut worms to devastate tomato plants, but when they attack "glads", that is really "something." Gardening is an eternal fight with worms, bugs, and the elements. Too much rains, not enough rain, etc—etc. * • * Dr. and Mrs F. E. Sawyer are back from Fort Meyer, Fla., where they spent the winter "Doc" is interested in planting around the house they have purchased there. I don't know whether he goes for gardening or not, but I do quote him on planting — "Sow the seed and then jump back out of the way." * * * Mr and Mrs Garnes Ackerman and daughters will leave Memorial day for Wichita Falls, Tex., and the Ozarks. They have heard and read so much about the tornadoes in that area they phoned Mrs Ackerman's brother- in-law and sister, Mr and Mrs Sam Cunningham whom they will visit, asking about weather conditions. They were assured everything was all right at the moment. I hope it stays that way. It was two years ago that Lizzie Post and I went to Houston and Wichita. It was about this time that Udal was flattened out. Mrs Matt Zittritsch took us to Udal to see, what was left. It was mighty little-mostly piles of rubble ready to burn. * * • Charley and Mabel Livingston were called to California by sickness in the family and went via Phoenix, Ariz., where they spent so much time. A letter from Mabel said they had to detour it Kansas City because of the torrents there at that time. There are many dry river beds out that way but this year they got a real soaking. Dr. Ray Potter has been a practicing veterinarian many years and is a good one I am sure. About his plumbing qualities 1 am not so certain but I hope his project turned out O.K. I was in the building occupied by the Kossuth Radio Company and Pratt electric firm the other day having a chat with Marg Dahl whom I had not seen for awhile. Ray came in to purchase some gadget from the electric firm to repair a pump on. his suburban acreage. His explanation of the trouble was quite complicated and since I am not very mechanically minded, I nodded agreement with what he had to sa> but confess I was still . in th dark as to the exact reason ther was no water at his place. Wei good luck.

He replied, "Charlotte?" Both answers being affirmative, they started to Jaugh and explained to the respective spouses that they had Best dressed WITH SAIAD DRESSING been «choo1 classmates. Charlotte is a daughter of Cecil Black and married George Fisher, son of Mr and Mrs Ted Fisher. The Ortons accompanied the Fishers home for the rest of the evening, getting caught up on the "Do you remembers—" » * * Mrs Everett Barr and I got off the «uhject of news the other day and what started us was her remark that she didn't expect her parents here for Memorial Day for. much as she would like to see them, she hated to have them on the highways at such a crowded time. I said, "I suppose there will be that same old race at Indianapolis with some spills and possible deaths." We remarked we'd perhaps watch it in safety over T.V. Mrs Barr was also not in sympathy with mountain climbers — the hazards just for the name of having accomplished a rathei' silly thing. SENECA NEWS Guests at the Wm.

Social Security Law Explained Although many disabled poo- pie in this area have already applied to have their .social .security records frozen, many more may lose valuable social security protection if they do not apply be- f.>re July. 1957. This warning came from Clifford W. S\vedlund, district manager of the Fort Dodge Social Security office. He explained that an application filed before July 19. r )7 by a disabled worker could be effective as of the time his disability actually started if certain work requirements were met at that time. After June 30, 1957, a disabled person cannot freeze his social security record for a period beginning earlier than one year before the date he applies for the freeze. This means that many workers who have been disabled for a long time \vill not be able to get their record frozen if they do not apply before June 30, 1957. A representative of the Fort Dodge District Social Security office will be in the Court House in Algona on Thursday. June 13, between the hours of 9:30 and 2:30, and anyone may call there for additional information. Information may also be obtained from the district office in Fort Dodge, which is open from 8:45 until 5:00, Monday through Friday.
