M^^M^BM..* . · * Julia Jaastad, who remembers the Tucson of 1905 as'"a little old mud hole," was honored Sunday by family and friends. The party marked her 95th birthday, which actually is today. Cohostesses of the open house were Mrs. Lloyd (Juliet) Fowler and Mrs. Anthony Marsala. Mrs. Marsala is Julie's grandniece; Juliet Fowler was married to the late Henry Jaastad, a former mayor of Tucson who held office from 193^10 1947. More than 125 guests gathered at the Lloyd Fowler . home to enjoy refreshments and convey their good wishes. Juliet Fowler sets a lovely table, and for the party she chose a Valentine theme. Cakes, cookies and canapes were spread on a white- · clothed, long table, with netting to the floor. The guest of honor was seat; ed in the living room, where she received friends and sev- 1 eral relatives who came to Tucson for the event. Among those here were Kathleen Hanson of Beach, N.D., Peggy :, Myers of Medora, N.D., Vesta Kerns of Bemidji, Minn., and . Byron Hogobwom of Sentinel Butte, N.D. Margarethe Erdahl Shank, Julia's niece, came from Phoenix. Margarethe's mother died in 1900 and Julia raised her from the time she was a baby. "She's like my own daughter," Julia says. Margarethe is the author of "The Coffee Train" ("a spoof of the Jaastad family, really," .explains Julia) as well as "Call Back the Years." · Julia first came to Tucson .in 1905 to help nurse Henry Jaastad's first wife, who had tuberculosis. She traveled back and forth between Tucson and Fessenden, N.D., for many years before permanently settling here in 1945. "I remember Tucson in the early 1900s -- lots of cowboys in front of saloons; about the only grass in town was at the Ciliwn Photo by Lew Elliott Julia Jaastad (left), whose friends and relatives gathered Sunday to wish her a happy 95th birthday, relaxes with one of the party hostesses, Mrs. Lloyd Fowler.

The big event will be held at El Dorado, and in the spirit of the evening, catering manager Joyce Boyd unearthed all sorts of low cholesterol recipes for the buffet. Dessert, for example, will be angel food cake (no egg yolks) topped by strawberries in'natural juices. The public is welcome, and the heart association office will still take reservations ($15 per person) through tomorrow. Dress is casual -- wear what you want. All proceeds from the ball go to the Southern Arizona Heart Association. One interesting fact: more money comes to Tucson for heart research than is raised here. Here and there The invitations read like this: Remember those late Friday bashes? How happy we were to flee our classes? Come TG1F with us -- dress as casual as can be -University of Arizona; we always slept outdoors; the only school was downtown on Congress s t r e e t ; I n d i a n women came to our home weekly to build a fire on stones and scrub all our clothes." For former North Dakotans the weather was really warm, but "we were young then, so we didn't mind much." Julia's parents came to the United States in 1886, when she was 5, from Hardanger, Norway, and settled in Wisconsin. They soon became citizens and Julia thought she was one, too. However, about eight years ago she needed proof of citizenship ("1 can't There's something new in schools we want you to see! The party, planned Friday at David and Esther Tang's home, is being hosted by Burt and Nancy Kinerk and Dennis and Susan DeConcini. Burt is president of the school board of the Kino Learning Center, and Susan is secretary and fund-raising chairman. They sent the TGIF invitations to Tucsonians who have expressed an interest in the new school. The school, with students from 4 to 14 years of age, will be dedicated Saturday. It is approved by the Catholic diocese, taught by nuns and lay teachers but managed completely by a board of directors with private funds. Kino recently received a grant from the Raskob Foundation to begin an outdoor learning center -- which will include a weather station, greenhouse, animal enclosure and other interesting ideas. Julia's brother Henry was an architect as well as a public official. He designed many buildings and churches, such as San Augustin Cathedral. Julia admits to a great deal of pride in his work. Pouring tea and coffee at Sunday's gathering were Mrs. Shank, Orlinda Fiscel, Ostrid Johnson, Geneva Malgren and Alvina Bratager.
