Tuesday, June 1,1954 Tuesday, June 1,1954 * a * Tidbits From fve/yn . When it grew, so dark Sunday | during our" big rain storm, I turn- ; ed on the floor lamp near my desk and was reading when ; B-A-N'O, out went the bulb. i With the telephone plugged into rthe wall nearby, I decided I'd better get out of my corner. I hid no more than moved when another flash hit the top of the lamp.' And was I thankful' I Had pulled the radio plug, otherwise the tubes would have been blown to smithereens. A check up by an electrician -revealed no dam- 1 age but there must have been something wrong somewhe're, else how could the light have been • ' Safe • Dull, prooi • Weaihei proof • Mar- pzoof put out? * * • * We'have a new paper boy on this route. Jimmy Hardgrove told" me the lad had been here but nine months from Germany. I said. "Sprecken sie Deutsch?" Me grinned and answered "Yes." He probably speaks English fluently,' while my German is just a remnant of 2 years, the required amount, in high school. * * * I wonder how many years ago the cameo ring laid on the ground Watch for THE GREEN-AND-GOLD BJUSTROM FURNITURE VAN1 before Mrs Adrian Sterling discovered it a few months ago. She and some neighors were standing near a pile of dirt near the celjar at the Valentine house next doo^ on ' North Harlan street. Mrs Sterling glimpsed a flash of gold arid thought it Was a wedding ring. It turned out to be a camed- a black and shiny material which I would call onyx, though, I've not seen the ring. It is in perfect condition, the oblong set unmarred and the gold of good quality. . . ., , Oh the hazards of fishing! One woman told me of slipping on a river bank, landing on the rear of her lap and spraining a thumb. Not to be out-done, the woman to whom-she confided that she had fallen, landed on the same .portion of her anatomy and sprained, a finger, . * * * ' Mrs Geraldine Houck of Corn ing, is very anxious to have news of her mother, Wilma Johnson. Mrs Houck was born in 1921 at the University hospital, Iowa City and Was adopted by Mr and Mrs Epperson who did not keep her. Mrs Houck's information covered only this which is quite vague.

She always conies up with some novel entertainment and this one was so casual it hardly seemed a game. She had a folded paper on which a word was written. We were not to guess what it was, just converse normally, but the one who said the word received a prize. The other was to count the articles in one's hand bag. I won the prize for the word and Mrs Adrian Sterling won the prize for having some sixty-plus articles in her purse. 1 was "traveling light" with thirty-seven. Mrs KaiherSne Simon and I were discussing making things over. I told her, about a blue knitted scarf I had years, ago which served me for years in various 'disguises. From a long scarf with pompons on the ends it was made over into a scarf of shorter length and knitted pockets, going from that to a hat and handbag, finally winding up in a,fluff rug, cut so short it would be impossible to salvage it for further use. "Thank goodness" said Elizabeth Post who has seen 'pnd marveled at these various transformations. * • * How many of you remember Duke Wilson, a student at high school back in 1908 who, was quite a pianist? I heard recently that he has a dance orchestra on the west coast. \ * • * Mr and Mrs John Swarlz have been worried this spring over the fact that Mr and Mrs Wren have not moved into their apartment on the clothes line pole. They were afraid it might go unoccupied all"season, but the other dny the young couple moved in and have set up housekeeping. From the songs floating out of the little dwelling, every thing is rosy and they are a happy couple. * * * I always thought it was 1 women who were the '"saver uppers" but Hazel Burns tells me in their family it is Jimmie who wants to save things. She says they have the basement, attic and garage full of furniture, for the house they recently bought on Fair street has several.less rooms than the former on Ridgeley. Well, maybe Jimmie is right. Who knows, some of. the things saved will come into use later. At any rate, there can always be a sale,. It is Mrs Mattie McWhorter's nephew, Theron Lighter, who edits the Marcus newspaper. She misinformed me about thejrnag- Wed Af Ramsey Church Pictured above : are Janice Faye. daughter of Mr and Mrs Herman Janssen of Buffalo Center, and Owen George Tjaden, son of Mr and Mrs Geo» Tjaden of Titonka, who were^ united in marriage on May 14 at the Ramsey Reformed church m Titonka.
