S. Blossom had once asked me dfd I eVer woftder'about how nanies were started in spelling and said thai there were a lot 'of nanies which contained every day thoughts and things as well as being named after pities, etc. And so I checked a few of the phone holder names and found it interesting, For instance there was that of Richard N. Burt, was he.named after Burt or was Burt named !after him? And' Ihere were names which slarled with "Car" (dori* know what make) and they wen E. B. Carlson, Olliver Carlson E. R; Carney, Robert Carney, Wil liam Carney, Robert Carr, Hugl Carroll, John Carroll and D.'H Carver. And then think of;a) he names that were started with my .Chris; Jack ChrischilleS, Julian Chrischilles, Ted R. Chris- chilles, Theo. H: Chrischilles, Donald Christerisen, Melvin Christensen, Roy Christensen, M. P. Chris- tiansen'arid Ferman Chrisloffers. Then there are two names staring with "Crow" arid they 'are J. S. and John CrowleyV "•-. And there are three names which start with "Did" and while' I don't kriow what Ihey did I do know they are O. K." gents, Anton Didriksen, and Martin and Soren Didriksen. And there are two names with which a "Fan" starts them arid they are Ralph and Robert Fandel. There is only one name which starts; with "Far" and that could be far away!or a farrow" and which it :is; Millon Farrow. There is only';, one "Feast" involved in starting » IlCi.1 JL11C *» v».%*. »-«- — -— , ways meanirig as j hard as ouhds and it startUhe namefc - ive here, Charles-Hardgrove, M|s Fern Hardgrove, Jerome A.
