4^-Algono (la.) Upper Des MolnesThurtday, February 10, 1955 Tidbits From Evelyn Now I've heatd everylhingl Women borrowing corsets! The story Is quite simple after all, and it concerns two women who complain of haviflg weak backs. One woman remarked that she was going to have to buy a second garment while she tubbed a corset, mentioning that it made her most uncomfortable to go without one. To which the other woman replied that it wasn't necessary for her to buy one, she'd loan her one. So-<-woman number one borrowed it, rinsed it and returned it to the owner. And thus a backache was avoided. Oh, I'm afcicl I don't have to surround my torso with stays! Large families have gone out of vogue, for (he most part, but it must be nice to gather on festive occasions. The Charles Clark family consisted of 12 children and Sunday, Jan. 30, nine of them and their families gathered aj Britt to honor the father on his 92nd birthday. At the table of honor was Mr Clark and nine of his children, Mamie Fitch oi Burt, Eva Potter, Algona; Hattie Hartzell of Dows; Daisy Stevenson of Britt; Leo. Clark of Brits; Howard Clark of Grandmeadow. Minn.; Floyd Clark of Webster City; Robert Clark of Humbaidi: ajnd Ronald Clark of Cirwith. 1 Others at a distance who were JIB- ! able to ba present were EJfeel Johnson of Oregon, Roy Clark c*3 Henderson, Minn.; and Hsrae , Clark of Woburn, Mass. ;] Ada Malueg wen! lo Chicago recently via plane from Ft. Dodge. She is going to visit her wxo-!n- iaw /and daughter Mr and Mrs Kemper Huber and was joined there by another son-in-law and daughter the Rev. and Mrs Owen Parrett of Portland, Oregon. Ada hasn't fully recovered from a shoulder injury suffered in a fall in the basement several weeks agcrand it was a quicker, easier method of travel. She plans**"to be gone several weeks. # * # Mrs Clinton Lighter and I were discussing travels recently and wishing we were going somewhere far away. Since we have no intention of actually doing it, I said, " Come over and we'll look at some folders I have, Texas, California, Chicago, etc. That's a cheap and easy way." She told me that Mr Lighter gets an urge every now and then too, and to satisfy his "wander lust", he gets out some folders and atlas things and he goes "traveling" that way. Or maybe it's pictures and listings of the best courts, hotels, parks .and such that he pours over. « • ¥ Such odd things happen to these bodies of pur but this is, to my way of thinking, one of the top oddities. Some time ago Merrill, eight /ear old son of Mr and Mrs Carl Grisham was helping his father unload oats. Awhile afterward he began to complain of an ear hurting. Various diagnosis got him nowhere but it was finally discovered that an oat had gotten into his ear, and had begun to grow. There laid all the trouble. Fancy that! Odder still is the grain taken from an Egyptian tOmb hundreds of years after being placed there. AND THE GRAIN GREW! Many ,Algonans MaoW Willis Bradley who grew up here, was graduated from high school married, went into the law business and now lives at Minneapolis, Minn. He and his "wife were here so call on me a year or so ago and i saw theon at the centennial breakfast. If you want to know what she looks like, look at a pieSTire of her sister, Governor Hosgh's wile. They might easily oe laiea for twins. « • « When John Jordan called his mother Jfcrs Olga Jordan to tell her about her granddaughter, he was so excited he didn't tell her tne inianrs" name. John is a nephew jof Ellen and' Alma Carlson and he is on the east coast awaiting orders for overseas duty. » • % This baby story is a sad one/ for %vhen little Georgie Lynr, j Kuyper was recently baptized in! she Lutheran church at West [ Bend, she had no Daddy To stand J by proudly. Her father George I Kuyper had died suddenly just \ a day before she was born." i * * * I Clyde Lloyd had the surprise j of his life when he went to the | city library recently. Growing | up in the country and having. * no occasion to use the library, he f had never visited It till 2 short t time ago when he wanted a parti- I THESE WOMEN! ' ird-Afewb, ...,....,lit..

He acted upon hes^suggM- tion and a complete new world was opened to him. He was amazed at the numberless books and periodicals, the beauty and d'gnity of the rooms. His enthusiasm is an inspiration, and surely a source of pleasure Jo Bela Anms and her assistants. * * *You who have T.V. sets'could have seen Mr and Mrs H.srniais Leeck. 2<ir and Mrs George Kernen, Mr and .Mrs Harold Fraaabach and Mr and Mrs Richard Fraara- bsch on the bam cases prograsn a week ago Saturday nighl. 15 ;s a sort of >ndc cjj>?a affetr, just so long as the £l3or can feold a certain number of ecaplss.
