Tidbits From Evelyn Mrs James 'Whiltemore is looking forward eagerly to the arrival of her brother and sister-in-law, Willie and Liselette Fassbinder who will* reach New York City from Bonn, Germany, April 14. They will visit friends there a few days and will then come here. They are to make their home at F6rt Dodge. Mrs Whittemore and the children went to Bonn before Christmas and have been back home only a few weeks. It was a joyous occasion seeing old friends there after an absence of six years. * * * It is'too bad when duty interferes with pleasure. Ruth Schweppe who is attending the Broadlawns school of nursing at Des Moines --was home for a few days vacation with her parents, Mr and Mrs A. F. Schweppe, and she wanted so much to attend the wedding of her friend Janice Ostrum. But duty called and she had to be ready for floor service in the hospital at 2 o'clock the afternoon of the wedding. Alas! * * * The eight and six year old sons of Mr and Mrs Ewald Voigt have learned a little about this Easter Egg hokum for the other day when theif mother gave them some money to spend at the grocery store, she was surprised when they came home with packages of egg dyes and calmly remarked, "We are going to color our own Easter eggs." * * * Isabella Dahl has a pair of Angora kittens she would like to find good homes for, or perhaps someone would like both of them. They are three months old and are very well mannered. Anyone interested may call her evenings at 721 W, or her neighbor Mrs Lolla Ladendorff may be contacted and she will report to Mrs Dahl. Mrs Ladendorff's number is 983 W. It is a temptatioh I can hardly resist. * _* * The Fred Wills were quite dis« appointed in their recent trip to Little Rock, Ark., and Kansas ity, Mo. They visited their sons- in-law and daughters Mr and Mrs Marvin Wallburg and Mr and Mrs Lyle Martin at the respective places. They had expected to find nice, warm weather, but it was cold and snowy all the time they were gone, only one day of sunshine, and believe it or not, when Esther hung cloths out at Little Rock, they FROZE on the lines. * * * The gremlins responsible for putting a jinx on the Annis home should now retire and leave the household in peace for years to come. Earlier in the year Mrs Annis and Beth, along with Mrs Carrie Bourne had a car collision only a few blocks from the Annis home. Mrs Annis and Mrs Bourne were hospitalized a few days bul fortunately the injuries were nol too severe. Then recently Mrs Clara Pompe, housekeeper at the Annis home, was in a similar accident very close to home. She too was hospitalized a short time, then went to her son-in-law and daughter's, Mr and Mrs R. W. Wetzel till she had fully recovered. She is back at the Annis' now and it would be interesting to hear their views on the experiences. * * * After six years of living in their basement house, the E. W. Adams family has . moved "upstairs." They are located at 324 North Hall street and Doris says it is heavenly to be "above ground." * * * The juvenile disease mumps has caught up with' J. J. Atherton. Please pass the pickles! Years ftgd large families were called Rooseveltian — Teddy Roosevelt, -that is. I don't remember how many children he lad and' possibly it may have jeert he Was an advocate of numerous progeny — At any rate, I am ilways reminded of him when I lear of large families, and being ah only child possibly makes me ;hink of what confusion there must be the piles and piles of dishes to^be washed, the quantities oi food to be prepared, the around the table at meal iime — weir the whole picture leaves me baffled and breathless! A few of the larger families recently came to mv. attention — the C. E. Zauggs with nine, five boys and four girls — the Ferman Hein- ens with six boys and two" girls — the Joe Lichters have eight, I believe, but I'm not sure about how they are . divided. And of course, 1 Mrs Lichter is ,one of a large family ; too. The Potter family, Dr. Ray's parents, to'pped this with eleven, and now here's the laugh — when I read the Cady geneology I was'stiinned to find my grandfather Cady was one of a family of FOURTEEN. Poor great-grandmother Cady! And a pair of twins thrown in for good measure — Going back farther, the Orange Minkler family numbered 23 I believe it was. And the Hurts deep oWn inside! When soil pests hurt corn roots—your pocketbook gets hurt, too! Clear your soil of these thieving sub-surface insects; Use aldrin! Easy to use—A single spray application of aldrin, disked into the soil, gets root-/ worms and other pests for the entire season.

Robert Pelleymounters were 21 strong. . , , Ike and I are alikel I am not too enthusid over squirrels. They get too cozy with property and sparrows are a nuisance too. Ask Mrs Woito., They take liberties with her garage, so I say there should be a law to banish squirrels and sparrdws to,the woods and meadows. They just aren't fit for city dwelling! • • • • kiltie Rex Post—well not exactly LITTLE Rex, for at 11 months old he weighs 36 pounds, —but he's little in years—was here with nisi grandmother the Other day. He's a solemn fellow but finally gave me a smile. They say heavier babies don't walk so young but he is proof that some of the old sayings are so much "poppy cock". He walks, and has been for several weeks. Oh he isn't dashing all over yet, but he soon will be and he stands perfectly balanced on hits two sturdy legs. Another little "pugilist" is "Joey" Ostwinkle. He's .going to be a runner-up for Rex, for at seven months he weighs twenty six pounds. He's another adorable blonde. He and Rex could pass for brothers. • • * Well, happy Easter everybody. Wahlers, 85, from here attended his funeral at Albert Lea Friday. They were Mr and Mrs Thqs.
