They have taken a great liking to a certain property of mine and instead of making homes in the trees nearby, they have invaded the house, romping up and down between the walls and having a fine time. An S.O.S. to Frank Tellier, State game warden and the squirrels are doomed. I am happy to report two killed and more tcC follow. Squirrels are all right in their place, but they sure take privileges.;. They don't seem to know their place is in the woods. '..*..• *' I hope the Memorial services at Riverside cemetery were well attended. Last year, for the first timeiin many moons I was at the Athletic Park'and the attendance was pitifully small. We are creatures of habit and after the established custom of many years being held at the cemetery to be held elsewhere didn't seem like Memorial day. * * * I doubt if many persons could give a definition of a canthook. I didn't know what is was till Mr^ Augusta Beitz explained it is a hook used by loggers to keep the logs afloat and in place. Her son Joe works in the timber area in Minnesota and awhile ago he fell on the handle of one he was using. At first, his injuries did not seem serious, but later deve- lopements : pointed to internal trouble. When. I talked with Mrs Beitz she said it was possible she wouldl be called to his bedside. * * * Holidays are upsetting. They take me off my regular schedule and I get in a tizzy meeting a "dead line.". Then occasionally a party comes along which I simply must attend.and that's bad for my schedule but good for my morale, especially when the party has been planned and postponed so many times because of weather and this and that. And now comes the really BIG upset. I am going to Des Moines June 5 and will attend tKe convention for the Iowa handicapped June 6 at the Lzaak Walton League club. I'll report in detail after I get home. I am wondering what kind of a ; deal it is, but from all Indl* [cations, it sounds like quite"*tf "whing-ding." I don't expect to get home till Monday afternoon— late at that probably, for I expect to DO the town. * * » I think the south side of Algona did not get as much of the storm as did the north side. Thursday night. Mrs Ed Wolcott and the Wernert sisters report large trees blown down, the Wernert house escaped by inches being under the tree. Mrs Wolcott said she and Ed were with south side friends and didn't think there was much wind. I wasn't alarmed either, went to bed and sept soundly. • • • I don't know what distresses a hostess the more, guests who fail to come on the day expected, or those who come a day ahead of time. Velma Hagg had experience with the first variety and I have had experience with the second. We haven't gone into detail on this, but in either case, it spells a nervous breakdown almost. • • » Larry Kearney heard his patents Mr and Mrs Ernest Kearney talking about getting some tomato plants from the greenhouse and was given permission to go with them. Now'you can't fool Larry on colors, for as they drove away, having made the purchaseSf Larry remarked, "That wasn't a greenhouse—that was a WHITE house," which of course it true, if you've seen the building you'll know he is right. » » » Mrs {Catherine Simon holds the record for the fastest woman suitcase packer in "these here parts." Her niece and nephew visited her and went on to visit relatives at Graettinger. Upon returning here they told her "Get ready and go with us. We're leaving in 15 minutes." And believe it or not, she threw a few things into the case, grabbed up her purse and was ready. Just one stop at the b.ank and away they went and wound up in Chicago with her son-in-law and daughter Mr and Mrs C. J. "Winandy, Spending several days there and with other relatives nearby. Her granddaughter, Joan Winandy, has jeen attending a medical School at Winona, Minn., and after graduation and completion of internship, plans to enter general practice. • • • Here are excerpts from a letter dated May 24 I received from Mrs William J. Combs, 4262 Felton street, San Diego, Calif. The family will be well remembered am sure—"we have found a house to suit our needs in a district called "North Park". We like it fine—I was watching the local newsreel on T.V. and it was naming the ships that came in today! The "Hopewell" had returned from seven months in Korea and soldiers greeting their wives were shown. Bill Guderian greets his wife Charlene."—it did not dawn on me till Bill turned around and waved the camera men away and laughed. He looks real goodr—sure seemed good to see someone from home. Weather' is great—in the 70s most of the time. Have a bud on my gardenia in the front lawn.' (Thank you Mrs Combs for your interesting letter.) * *' « ''\ With 100 years.ago so much in everybody's mind; how would you like to pause and go back only to 1907 for a few items? Mr and Mrs Frank Besterilehner are home again after a trip to Chicago, DeKalb and other points in Illinois. Alice Mann left Tuesday for Spring Brook, ND., to visit her sister Bertha who is living on her homestead there. Mrs Gertrude Bartlett went over to Okoboji Friday to spend Sunday with her uncle Col.
