He ,had flown to Los Angeles to attend a convention and went over the same route other planes had gone, one to it's destruction about the same time Junior was traveling. This travel talk came up when we discussed the trip Zaida and Bill Nugent of Des Moines-and Helen Dingley contemplate. They are going on a European trip in May.

It wasn't too good because of too much snow but il was an ouling neverlheless. Mrs Williams and I got to talking about Ihe lakes. II is an area where bad summer storms have been experienced at various times and I told her of mother and I being there one very hot summei Sunday with Mr and Mrs Glen Raney. The next day I read in the daily paper that a cyclone had hit Twin Lakes, cottages suffered damage and two men, seeing the slorm overlaking Ihem, Ihrew Ihemselves into a nearby ditch thus escaping harm. She tok of a summer she was there. Mr Williams was away and only she and the bird were there to hear /ia radio Ihe slorm warning and hat the area Was threatened. She grabbed up the bird and cage, got n the car and drove as fast as she could to friends at Manson. Isn t il a pity thai loWa has to, hava cyclones' and lornadoes? Whon Dick Godfredson was a s'ludenl at Ihe Iowa State col- ege, Ames, he became acquainted with Gerald Anderson, William Miller, Clarence .Triska and another young'man still'in service. These' young .men close friends, were jn service togelher, and meet whenever possible. Recently they were guests here, Ihe men and wives icxcept Clarence who was accompanied by a girl friend. • The Andersons and Clarence live at Ames.and the Millers live at Des Moines. The men had lived at Camp Dodge while atlend- ing school as Ames was so crowded Ihere was no room for Ihem, so Ihey commuled lo classes. The fourth young man is to be released from service quite soon which will probably mean anolher get- logelher for the young folk, a celebration and welcome home. Oh if it could be done. A certain friend was nol wearing her rings and I remarked about ,it to which s>e said, "See this place on my finger? The rings got so tight I took them off and see how litlle my finger is YET. Wouldn'l il be nice", she added, "If wt could pul a band around oin waisls and gel Ihem smaller. ' , . . Agnes Rice was in a rather bad tate when she returned from Hawaii'and stopped here to visit Mrs Harriet Rice.
