Long-standing friendships are renewed and there is a general bringing-up-to- date of the lives of neighbors who moved away. Friends of Elva and Steve Price were interested to learn of the challenging career of one of the Price daughters, Stephanie, included in a card postmarked Austin, Tex. (2508 Roxmoor Drive) — which Steve refers to as LBJ country." Wrote the Prices: *• "Stephanie is keeping us advised of her current exciting life. She accepted the position of public relations director of the University of the Seven Seas — a full accredited floating university — and is en route around the world on the M.S. Seven Seas. "She sailed from New York on Oct. 19 and before docking in San Diego in early February will have visited Lisbon, Barcelona, Naples, Rome, Athens, Beirut, Port Said, Bombay, Columbo, Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Yokahoma and Honolulu. "She has had a few hair- raising experiences including very rough weather in the Mediterranean, camel riding in Cairo, losing a crewman overboard in the Arabian Sea (just to mention a few!). "Stephanie was tremendously impressed by the Acropolis in Athens, wore herself out climbing to the top of one of the pyramids in Egypt and felt real dressed up wearing a sari while visiting the homes of Bombay residents. "Our big thrill was unexpectedly catching a 15-minute news film on the Mike Wallace show featuring this unusual university. It was filmed aboard ship in Bombay and we caught sight of Steph three times." Another daughter, Pam, is attending University of Missouri. The Prices hope to make it back to Mason City next Fourth of July. But Steve will have to be back in Austin in August as that is the time of the annual Aqua Festival there and he will serve as vice commodore in charge of the Aquacade and beauty pageant. More cards Friends of Sally Fosse (1215 Peach Street, Clovis, Calif.) were pleased to hear that she has been named to the national Public Relations Advisory Council of the United Givers Plan. Formerly director of education of the American Cancer Society in Iowa, since 1959 she has been director of public information for the Fresno, Calif., United Fund. Meredith Willson's holiday greeting to Mrs. Fosse was an autographed copy of the score for "Here's Love," which appropriately is a musical based on the joy of Christmas . . .

No great Scott A name familiar to many of us was heard over a national TV network (NBC) on Saturday. It was Harrison Kohl, the transplanted Mason Cityan who now is executive director of the Sun Bowl classic at El Paso, Tex. Kohl has been instrumental in whipping up interest in the Sun Bowl and making at a rival of the better-known Orange, Sugar, Cotton and Rose Bowl festivities. The only real criticism from this distance of the Sun Bowl grid game was the hiring of Ray Scott to do the play-byplay. He normally does a passable job as announcer for the Minnesota baseball Twins, but his monotone, exclamation point-less reporting at the Sun Bowl created no more excitement in the viewer than that of watching a checker game in Central Park.

Herlitzka demonstrates a new $1,500 respirator at Mercy Hospital, with the assistance of Sister William Joseph, RSM. The physician says the new gear will be of special value in crushed chest cases. The balloons connected to the end of the machine are to illustrate how the gear works on the lungs. New respirator put in use at Mercy Hospital driven respirators that have been used. The new machine takes into account the reflexes of the lungs and variations in consistency of lungs. Because of a built-in monitor ing device, it can be used without constant supervision. The machine will sound an alarm if something happens. The machine operates with room air but can use oxygen. The physician said the apparatus is connected to the patient by performing a trach eotomv. The Cerro Gordo County board of supervisors could again face pressure to establish a surplus commodities program here. The board can expect the jressure if USDA tells the county the food stamp program will not be made available here for several years. Larry Jarvill, president of the 'erro Gordo County Federation of Labor, Tuesday said his organization will approach the x»aH on the commodities plan if the food stamp program does not materialize The head of th* labor group ;aid it is possible the federal agency will, for the time being, concentrate efforts on the establishment of stamp programs in 'poverty stricken" areas only. The Federation of Labor has approached the board on several occasions regarding Ihe establishment of a commodities program for Cerro Gordo County. The board has voiced opposition to the plan, contending that it would present too many ad ministration problems. Under the food stamp pro [ram, needy families could re- :eive $10 worth of food by pur- basing $6 worth of stamps. If accepted, Cerro Gordo would be one of the first coun- .ies in the state with a stamp program. Now it is one of 25 ojmties which do not partici pate in the commodities pro;ram.

The surplus foods are donated by USDA and are made available to low income people through an agreement made with the State Board of Social Welfare. The board, in turn, sends the food items to counties where the board of supervisors has requested them, has agreed to pay certain expenses involved in distribution and storage, and to keep records as required by the Department of Agriculture. Food items which have b«en distributed have included dry milk, rice, beans, flour, cornmeal, butter, cheese, lard, rolled wheat cereal, corn grits, can ned chopped meat, canned pure beef, peanut butter and dried eggs. The commodities are donatec by USDA to the state and arc delivered without charge to a central warehouse in Des Moines. The State Department of Social Welfare pays for the use of the warehouse facilities handling, and delivery to county distribution centers. This cost, reimbursed to the state by participating counties averages about 20 cents for each $7 worth of food available to reach recipient. The counties have some add! tional expenses within the coun ty for storage and distribution to recipients. However, severa studies made by various coun ties have shown the total cos. to counties is about three cents per pound of food put into the hands of eligible recipients—or about 60 cents a person per month for food' valued at abou $7 each. Funeral services for Mrs. Gertrude Vorwald, 80, will be held at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday at St. Mary's Catholic Church in New Hampton. She died Sunday at a Mason City hospital. Mrs. Vorwald had lived for the past 10 years at 122 5th NE. Previously she was for 10 years employed in the Mercy Hospital Nurses Home. Before that she lived for many years at New Hampton. She is survived by two sons, H. W. Vorwald, Mason City, ant B. F.

Some m»mb«rs of tb« Federa. .ion of Labor are not certain :he food stamp plan would serve the needs of the county's needy as well as a commodi- ies program would. The Department of Social Welfare does not claim that these donated foods, if used alone, will provide a nutritiously complete diet for anyone. They are, however, basic foods which should be included in most well balanced diets. The department s u g g e s ts when an individual or family is given these basic items without cost, then grocery money may be diverted to other food needs such as fresh fruit, vegetables meat and fish.

They said hungry children are difficult to teach. Need must be established in accord with an approved formula before surplus commodities are granted to an individual or family. Most recipients of Old Age Assistance, Aid to Blind, Aid to Dependent Children, and Aid to Disabled are automatically eligible unless they are residents/^ nursing, custodial, and boarding homes, or eat meals in restaurants. These food supplements are given only to individuals and households whera meals are prepared in the home. In many of the counties par. ticipating in the food distribu. tion program, county home economists have conducted classes in Ihe preparation and planning of daily meals around the foods available through the program. The Department of Social Wei. fare says a month's supply of cornmeal and rolled wheat may become dull eating if prepared only as mush or breakfast cereal.

"It's difficult to believe, too," says the report "that these are the only income people in any of the non-participating counties. "Other counties seem to fear the cost of distribution. Yet a survey of all counties participat- infi indicates total costs of dis. tribution average only three cents a pound per month, or less. "Other say that there are no available places for storage or distribution, or that grocers object. "Passing observations would deny the first, and the fact that in some areas groceries actually serve as local distribution centers would seem to refute the second. "As a matter of fact, grocers who have helped in the program, say that there is no decrease in the amount of food purchases made by these low income families.
