There was a bad plane wreck not so far from here 1 . ; The plane caught fire and the pilot baled out, thert his plane crashed into four houses killing an eight months old baby and injuring a lot of people. I am always anxious for the Algona paper to come. " •' . .- * ' * * •"• Mr and Mrs Glen Raney drove to Iowa Falls recently for a week-, end visit with their son-in-laW and daughter the Rev. and Mrs ' Robert Holzhammer and the very important little grandson David. They were warned that if they wanted to stand in well with David, they should bring a pipe. Grandpa Glen immediately made a purchase,-and armed with the •-- gift, was ready to get "in" even better With his' grandson. I don t see how it is.possible for David holds grandpa in such high esteem now. "Us men", David thinks, "Gotta stick -together." Rickie Post is another pipe addict at the ' age of three. 'He has quite a collection and it really is SOME THING to see the lad strutting around with a pip<5 dangling from his mouth. Wouldn't it be a joke on the tobacco firms if both boys scorn smoking when they-reach the smokers age? * * * MM C. 8, Muriagh lold me ol having an interesting letter from her daughter Mrs Thomas Kruse, who with her husband and children went to the far east not long ago where Mr Kruse is associated with the "Voice of America", Betty has begun teaching English to- the Burmese children, and Mr Kruse is learning the Burmese language. A Burmese "nannie" cares for the children, and all in all they are leading an interesting and certainly very useful life. » * » * I wonder how many persons know that the Rev. O. Leonard Nelson is an artist, and a good one, as well as a minister, and a good one, too. It came as a surprise to me too. Now this column is not meant to "tell tales OUt of school"., but I do think it is nice to knW things of this sort. The Rev. Nelson took a course in art when He was a lad of only, eleven years and later he studied at the Minneapolis art institute quite awhile before he decided to go into -the ministry. Probably his "pet" work is sketching, though he does oils and water colors too. * •« * Mrs Mabel Lee came home from Bad Tolz, Germany a few weeks ago and certainly her trip wai most satisfactory.

No changes have been made in them and Bartholomew, a third, is said to be the'oldest church in the wbrld. in one small town the citizens won't allow the streets to be changed—there is probably stone paving though I didn't ask her, but the fact that Napoleon went over the roads, causes them to ding tenaciously to the thorough' fare, keeping just as it was in his time. . Bavarians for the most part wear native costumes. They are waxing rich from our army. They move to smaller, 1'ess pretensioUs dwellings at low rentals: and lease their -homes at-high prices to Americans.' Mrs Lee visited some castles, all beautiful, and saw many priceless pictures. All together her sojourn abroad was time 'well spent and the beauties of the mountains and terrain in general will long be rememberd. ,*,••* * Mrs Craig Smith has a sister Mrs Robert Corcoran who lives in New York City. She has'been here on a visit and also was with her parents Mr and Mrs J. M. Fleming at Whittemore. Mrs Cpr- coran's nusband is associated with T.V. and in this capacity has contact with many stage celebrities. His particular work is as a critic and it must be indeed a stimulating and exciting job. I wonder what tales he could tell about the temperamental antics of the renowned. * * * I have been amused at Ihe reports I have been receiving from my Harry Goddard who moved to Wichita, Kan., from Detroit, Mich., July 2. The first caru stated that even though the temperature was 110 and 105, humidity was low, hence no worse than Detroit at 90 plus degrees. The next card said, "The heat got me down. Detroit is not the worst place to live." A recent letter said, "It is a leadpipe cinch we may not stay here." He went on to say that the more than 30 days of such high temperature WES more than his wife and sister-in-law could bear too, and he was the first to be "floored" by the heat. » » » Four guardsmen's wives decided they "wanted to get away from it all," so they went on a little spree to Little Falls, near Fort Ripley where the Iowa National Guards is in camp. Mrs 1 Jim Kelley took the family car and with her were Mrs Kenny Uarman, Mrs Bernie Miller and Mrs Kenny Richards. They went with no reservations arranged so Sharon Richards wondered if they would have to sleep in the car. They figured they would be able to get accomodations at Brainerd if Little Falls failed, and since the husbands could join them Saturday forenoon and be with them till Sunday night, they 'whatever the age of your car...

However, they are now well satisfied with the package the stork delivered and I referred Mrs Gurwell to "Little Women" and what fun those four sisters had.
