Tidbits'From Evelyn The older residents beta will remember an Ehgle family of Which John, Irvin and May were members, Mae was graduated "With the class of 1908, 1 don't , fecall much about the others except as church members they attended the Methodist Epworth League along with Milton Norton, his sister Edna Norton Ferguson, Ray Potter, Earl Crane, Melvift' Muckey,' verle Vincent, Oscar RoSewall and his younger brother "Katz", .Zada Brunson, Mattie Thorp'e and myself in the younger group and Neva Patterson," Lloyd Mitchell, Florence Brown, Clifford Clark, in th« older group. What this Is leading up to h that John studied for the ministry •at Morningside, Sioux City, was graduated in 1914, and died at San Diego, February 28. The , family moved to California some time ago and John continued in the ministry, retiring in 1955. He is survived by his widow, two daughters and a son who is also a minister. The brother Irvln % lives at San Jose. Of Mae there was no particular news. As Milton says, "Another of our era gone." Patty McGinnis phoned me to tell me of the birth of & son to her husband's brother and sister- in-law, Mr and Mrs Denver McGinnis at San Jose, Calif. Since the Dick McGinnis son arrived, the Denver McGinnlses have been anxious to meet the challenge with a son, so now there are two little cousins only a few mpnths apart in age.

I had a chat with Sophia • and learned she had surgery during the winter but' is now feeling 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 Guttehberg. 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 I saw one woman approach Lizzie Post Thursday afternoon, purse opened several feet away and request a 'poppy. * * * . This is a bad season for cut worms, says Mrs John 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 plant- ling -bflfV'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 wh'at was left. It was mighty little-onostly piles of rubble ready to burn. * * * Charley and Mabel Livingston were called to California by sickness irji-the family and went via Phoenix, Ariz., where they spent so much time. A letter from Mabel said they had to detour at 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 prac= ticing veterinarian many years and is a good one I am sure. About his plumbing qualities I am not sp certain but I hope his project turned-out O.K. I was in the building occupied by the Kossuth; Radio Company and Pratt lelectric firm the other day having a chat with Marg Dahl whom I had not seen for awhile. Ray came in to purchase some /{adget 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 say, but./confess I was still in the dark as to the exact reason there was no water at his place. Well, good luck, Ray. * * * I wondered how long it would be before Ingrid and Rossillini would be in the head lines again.

She in turn was giving him the "once over." As Knute and his wife Lillian were leaving, tha woman approached him and said questioningly "Kay?" He replied, "Charlotte?" Both answers being affirmative, they started to laugh and explained to the respective spouses that they had DIAL CYpre»s 4-9484 \\ to dressed WITH SALAD DRESSING been school • classmates.

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 rather silly thing. SENECA NEWS Guests at the Wm.

Social Security Law Explained Although many disabled- people in this area'have already aft- plied to have their social security records frozen, many more may lose Valuable sddal security prd- tectioh if they do ftot" apply before July, 1051 This warning' came from Clifford W. Swedlund, district manager of the iFort Dodge Social Security office. He explained that an application filed before July 1957 by a disabled worker could be effective'ss 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 recdrd 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 will not be able to get their record frozen if they do no.t 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.
