2-Aleono (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, May A t 1954 Tidbits From Evelyn Claude White, belter known as "Whitey" was in a facetious rnood recently and had a, lot of fun asking friends for fifty cents to buy a sandwich, meeting their Cold stares and various excuses completely unaware of who wa behind the brown whiskers. His wife Adele Was puzzled when he asked her to rip out the fui from his winter cap, but caugh on fast when 1 he fastened "the fur to his face with strip's of Scotch tape. Taking up a stick which laid in the yard and using it as a cane, he called on a neighbor who was at work and asked for the half dollar. He was rebuffed in >no uncertain terms. It took You Just Ccm'J Beat These WORK SHOE SPECIALS.! Dot Smith at Christensen's to see who was really being the beard At Barry's Recreation Parlor he 'Went unrecognized till over a glass of beer the tape played him a trick, loosened, and there "Whitey'' was revealed. Well, it was fun while it lasted. '••> :.,••* * V * ,1 feel smug and virtuous— * have ALL the invitations for my class members ready and the 'ones farthest mailed—invitations' tb the centennial reunion, I mean. It is surprising how many are in California — Earl Crane, Zula Ely, Ruth Lundell, Eva Rustrum, Verle Vincent and Irene Wilson. X-TRA DURABLE Work Shoes 4.95 Nail-less Cork Sole Construction 7.95 Value Cushion In-So!es COW-HIDE UPPERS Only At Diamond's Can You Get This "Cadillac" of All Work Shoes 5.95 DIAMOND'S SURPLUS While we -are so conscious of "old times" in this centennial year, I might add a bit' on the needs of the infant in those far away days. Talcum was undreamed of, but conditions existed then just as now that required such toiletries—and you'd never guess'what was used—BROWN- BD FLOUR! Coffee was also browned for consumption. It was sent out green and the consumer had to brown it in a skillet just the right point. Mrs Wary Johnson who lived*in our apartment so many years often ,old of doing that household task when she was a mere slip of a irl. * * * * When I read ihe item about the Sexton man who had purchased a new shovel to hand out to those suggesting ways of digging, I was reminded of the man who years ago was cutting down a huge tree on the corner of the terrace at East McGregor and South Dodge streets. My' father 'had to pass it as'he came home and he stopped briefly to watch proceedings. The man said, "Well, Marve, have you any ideas on how to cut this tree?", to which Dad replied, "No. I don't know a thing about it. I think cyou are doing all right." The man replied, '"Well, you're the first person that has came along that hasn't had plenty of advice to offer." » * * Don and Ron, twin sons of Mr and Mrs Ralph Elbert will be graduated from high school next month. Their mother Margaret regrets that they have grown up in what seems so short time. It seems only yesterday I met her on the street with them in their twin carriage. She said she and Ralph had taken a picture of them on their first day of school and they intended to take one on their last day. The boys scarcely know what plans to make. They, would like to enter college, but with 'Uncle, Sam's' eyes on • them, they don't quite know what to do. Well, they have lots of company in that respect. When I phoned Mrs Roberi Brewer the other day. Jhe didn't 1 answer promptly so I daid, "Did I call ybu at the wrong time and get you away from something? 1 ' "Yes," she replied, "A flffe" * It was only a-few moments'Before that I had heard the siren -and' had seen the trucks go past'Here, but of course had no idea where! it was headed, I asked what happened and she said "My husband got "match happy" arid set fire to some com stalks. It got out of hand and was going' rapidly toward the barn. He' said, "Bring some water," and I said, "I'm calling the fire department." They came very promptly and everything is O.K." '•'*••'*' Another, lucky , finder—Freda Christenseh who; fo.untl; her lost diamond on the rug in 1 her home. I might mentidn another—Zada Nugent of Des Moines w.ho lost a black pearl frorA a ring—the gem having been brought to her by tier son Jack who purchased it in Japan when he was in service. The pearl turned out to be much more valuable than he had known and after appraisal at a jewelry store in Des Moines, was mounted with a circle of small diamonds, leaving the house one day with a group of friends, one exclaimed, 'Where is your pearl?" A search was begun and the; missing gem ivas found on the driveway. Yes, t was sent back for repairs and ince then has caused no further anxieties. • •• - • "Dutch" Lorenz lost a large diamond on the golf links shortly after he had purchased the ring. In this case the firm made good the loss for they conceded the mounting must have been defective and replaced the stone. So he was a "lucky loser" too. * * * I offered some advice to Mrs Nick Fisch the other day. She had I been doing some interior decorating and-complained of the spots she had to clean off the woodwork. I said, "I've never tried it but I've read that if one cuts a rubber ball in half and slips it over the handle of the .paint brush, the drippings will fall .into the, inverted half and keep ones hands clean as well as the wood.' She said, "But I've been using a roller." So much for advice! * * * Mrs W. A. Ladendorff read about the steamer "Queen" being made ready for the summer season at the Okobojis and told me that she and Mr Ladendorff. took a trip on it way back in the summer of 1893. The Ladendorffs were married December 14, 1892, Rosenmeyer Of St. Benedict Is A Bride low, then took charge, The fcfer rrian band, consisting of fiarlene Long, Rachel Me Arthur. Paul Geltzenauer, Leonard Miller and Jerry Jensen played sever al numbers. Mr Bailsman played ,a sax aphone and clarinet sold. . , Rev Roskamp of Titpnka gave a talk on Child Discipline. Lunch was served by the committee in charge: Mr and Mrs John NeW- brough, chairman,, Mr and Mrs Fred Schultz. -Mr 'arid .Mrs Art Priebe, Mr Ellefson, Mr and and the summer trip in 1893 was a belated honeymoon. They sat on the upper deck and enjoyed the scenery to the utmost." They took in all the concessions, I suppose there 'was a • bowery dance too—at any rate they took in the "works" to the extent that they were too tired to climb to the second deck for the return trip and /were content to relax on the lower deck. j « * * Progress had been made in 1907 for here is an item about a Butler county farmer who had a couple | On Saturday, April 24, at 9 a.m., Patricia, daughter of Mi and Mrs Al Rosenmeyer, St. Benedict, and Ralph Morey, son of Mrs S. A. Walker, Chicago, were united in marriage at the St. Benedict Catholic church by the Rev. C. A. Ahmann. The bride, given in marriage by her -father, was attired in a floor length gown of tulle and lace. The lace basque bodice embroidered with pearls had a square neckline and short sleeves with matching mitts. The full skirt was of nylon tulle. A nylon tulle waist length veil fell from a cap of pearls and lace. She wore a pearl necklace, gift of the groom and' carried an orchid surrounded by stephanotis. •• Mary Lou Froehlich, a friend, was maid of honor, and Shirley Morey, sister - in - law of the groom, was bridesmaid. •The groom was attended by Tom Norton, a friend, and James Rosenmeyer, brother of the bride.

JOE BLOOM anc} ED WOLF, Owners Iowa has had some governors with unusual peculiarities, too, including one who refused to eat off a plate if it had a flower picture in the middle. _ But, come to think of it, those differences run about the same for Iowa folks as a whole. It really wouldn't be very interesting, either, if all of us were alike! Differences in people make "personality", make folks more en- But each of us respects the other's right of choice. • That's what is important . . realizing that folks aren't all alike, don't prefer the same things . . . and that the other fellow's preferences are just as importan' as our own.
