Well, it finally looks as if winter Had passed us up because on account of we've had no snow or Ice cold winds for mor'e than a week and the thermometer has been registering in the high 70s and into 80 the past week and maybe 1 can now take 6ff the winter underwear and hunt up some lighter material. for warmer weather -wear, so to speak.

According i to > a xe-, port by the statfe weather bureau it is agreed that the . seasons of fall, winter and spring were .carried over an average of 21 days beyond their regular limit time in 1954 and so far in 1>)55.

Beisch' is'put of the hospital and recovering at a rest home in Burt. , Mrtand Mrs F.raijk Wise of Mason ' City' spent . Sunday at the Mack Wise home where a celebration was held in honor of Frank's birthday. Mrs Carrie Olsen's home should sparkle since her daughter, Mrs Leslie Huff, has been doing a real house cleaning job the past week. There was one less cleaning job as Mrs Olsen's African violet collection is gone. She was well covfered and warm but the flowers weren't when the fire went out one cold night last winter. It's quite a surprise when someone other than Marie Loman comes around for donations for some fund. Mrs Leo Kirsehbaum was canvassing for the Red Cross recently and last week Mr and Mrs Arnold Danielson were out for the cancer fund. With the farmers busy season here, Art Olsen has picked a poor time to be sick. After being married for fifty years Arch Burger still only admits to being over 21 on his birthday this week. If he could touch up his hair like spme of the ladies he might look it too. August Kirschbaum, local garage owner, underwent ^surgery at St. Joseph's Mercy hospital in Mason City Monday morning. He is expected to be there for some time yet. His son, Leo, wjll continue to operate the business. The Friendly Club met at the home of Mary McMahun with Mrs Ambrose Licktieg assisting with the delicious lunch. Members volunteered for their working hours for the Kelley Open House. Miss McMahon told of her trip through the southwest and showed souvenirs. She remembered her neighbors by brining a Mexican toy for each instead of sending cards. In Texas she was able to see a showing- of Cinerama. Among the guests present were Mrs Lawrence Wieg and Jo Ann Lick- tieg of Sexton, Mrs Julia Taft of Fairmont, and Mrs John McMahon of Corwith. The next meeting will be May 26 with Mrs Leo Kirschbaum. Mothers are very pleased with the new school bus driver in this area. There is now a lady driver, Peggy Naylor, and its surprising how well a woman can make the children mind on the bus. If you have attended a mother- daughter banquet you may agree with Mrs Joe Namer's opinion. She certainly enjoyed the Catholic Daughters banquet at St. Benedict but it was sura" a bother to get a meal for the rest of the family first.
