—"^••^•••••i Tidbits .From Evelyn y ° ur today in was men T to me because I was one of the Hurt play^ s ''n fact t he .. hot sho t» pth * t the Burt ^uchdown. But s ! think bfl ck *«» * were on that team that are no longer with us. Also of our. opponents ;Sam» Kuhri "Red" M?Cfthd; Tom Gdlespie, "Bones" Laird Kf Nugent "Russ" Peterson and others that now slipping mv memory. - ft3fe rv l? Thompson, now cashier of the State Bank here, was our coach. n j »°.J? ot re member too much about the arguments but I do remember what a beautiful day ' }lJ Va l. and when the Passenger train from the south got in that day, I thought that all of Algona had come up." , a Thank you for the letter. I am going to write a personal one of these days. I feel acquainted with you since you are related to my very good friends Ruth and Glen Raney. '•'• '•:: '-,.»- * •• * Last evening Beth Annis brought me some books from the library and mentioned she was walking home as she didn't care for 'the f.?f P in ,? &r er ,, car might get. I said "It isn't Hallowe'en yet." She explained that often in the exhu- berance of football victory, the boys and girls forget that it is, not sporting to deface cars and buildings, and she wasn't taking any chances. Between us we had deducted that things weren't going Algona was that far in the evening at least, for there was no noise and had it been Algona winning, the air would have carried yells and noise associated with games victories. * * • The Milton Wills are on iheir way toward a football eleven. They need only seven boys to complete the team since the fourth son was added to the family Monday, 'Sept. 20. He has been named Thomas James and would appear to be good football material as he weighed 8 pounds and 4 ounces. Ardis said he was the smallest of the quartet, the others being Bill, Kenney and Joey. What belter birthday gift could a mother get than the information that a son had received a promotion? Mrs Erman Hansen was made happy on her recent anniversary with the news that her son Carl had been promoted to Sgt. Carl Hansen at Fort Sill, Okla. * * * I am a little reluctant to iell this "most embarrasing moment", but if Harlan Miller can come out point blank'calling' a "spade a spade", perhaps I can do a little veiled item and not be considered vulgar and too frank. Well, here it is. A group of women had a party recently and each guest was to tell about their most em- barrasing moment, a prize to be given to the one whose predlc-. ament seemed most bjush-provok- ing. This woman's husbarx^L is a contractor and' it is necessary to move from place to place as work was completed. Since it was always a rural site, indoor plumbing is out of the picture and a small building is taken from place to place. It was time to move camp and the little building was about to be loaded for transfer to the next location—The chief difficulty was that Mrs was in the building and that stopped operations till the "all clear" sign was given. * * * Such a pleasant masculine voice. answered me the other day when I called for some news. I wondered if I had Charles Boyer or Maurice Chevelier on the line, and I assure you this person had as charming a voice as either of these well known personages. It was Jean Bernat, father of Mrs Michael Scheck of St. Louis, Mo. We had a frief chat but in that learned he is an instructor and French in St. ,-,7-7- Y* 5? came to th ' e States When only 23 years of age had ?fr rv f.T ,l n the French army in W°rld War 1 and is of Spanish and French descent. » * *• While speaking of foreign lands, the Bel Canto dub had the opportunity of hearing an interest- in S talk by Mrs Ruhe, librarian f, 1 . West Bend, when they met with Mrs Carl Vohs. Mrs Ruhe *u Accompanied 73 lowans of °V bu ^ ue diocese to attend *»,; ^ ar m n year observances abroad. The group maintained headquarters at Paris and visited Rome, Naples, Florence and instead of going to Spain and the Fyreenes with others, Mrs Ruhe Visited relatives in Bavaria and Luxemberg. Among those she visited were a great aunt, 86 and ner mother's twin sister, past 70. * '* * Joyce Riddle has returned to Pomona, Calif., in time for the Beginning of school. She came lere earlier in the summer with ier grandparents Mr and Mrs Jess Riddle. Mrs Riddle has had surgery since coming in Iowa and will be unable to return home for some time. Janice made the trip back alone, and at 13 she is quite a seasoned traveler. Several years ago when she was only six, she made the trip alone. The. train >ersonnel looked after her -nicely nd the stewardess kept a vigilant eye on her so the journey was without hazard. * * * •• • • • After Elmer Kelley read my column last week he phoned to me he too remembered that tornado that swept north of town back in 1894 It came at Kossuth county fair time, Sept. 21, the HEAT YOUK HOME BEAUTIFULLY! • Exclusive Duo-Therm Period Furniture Styling—beautifies the home it heats. • Exclusive Duo-Therm Dual Chamber Burner gives you • more heat from every drop of oil. • Rich, mellow Mahogany finish—blends with tny color scheme. • New!

Fairs used to be late in the season but there were no night entertainments so the chilly evenings did hot matter. Later they shovec/ the date to the first week ,in Sept; but that conflicted so with school. How could youngsters be expected to-keep their minds on readin', writin' and 'rlthrnetic with a fair in progress. So August seemed the happy solution. i •• * * * t I think we have the highest percentage of T.V.s of any neighborhood in town. Mrs Rose Potter is the latest to have one installed, and lucky woman, she won it from the Beecher Lane store in the drawing on the day of his opening. Others close by are Marie. Hawcott's, • Del Carver's, Chris Wallukait's, Dick Post's, Fielding Perry's, Fred Peterson's, Tom 'Dailey's, and probably many more if I'd gel out an' survey the skyline. * » • • I've been interested in watching Fred -Peterson enclose his front porch. It's just across the road and I had a ringside seat, .ooks mighty nice and will probably be a great asset in keeping out winter winds. Back To 1912 Here is a list of high school debaters all of whom will be well remembered I am sure: Lois Keen, Pauline Norton, Edna Sorensen, Frances Walker, Dicie Beane. Lewis Rist, Walter Bar- ton, Charles Carlon, Fred Geige: Clair Laird, Howard Mawdsley and Alfred Kresensky. I wonder what the subject was. Compare the city bills of today with those of 1912, and we thought the ok Salaries were pretty good—Char les McQuaid, $70—M. M. Cady $84.50—C. C. Dudley. $30—J. W Kelley, $85-i-Roy TiJlinghast, $60 —F. C. Dailey, $60—Clint McClellan, $60—Mary Benjamin, $35— I'll quit on this, and ponder on the changing times.
