They i beautiful day although ' Bob Kelley isn't going to be the most popular fellow with the rest of the husbands for a while. He took his wife out to dinner and a show at Mason City to celebrate their fourth anniversary last week. The showing made by the ballplayers at the Friendly Club picnic must have made them realize they needed practice. Now there is a real hot ball game almost every night across the road in Glenn Gabrielson's hay field. The youngsters and some not so young, 'are joining in and a real professional looking backstop that may have- once been a chicken pen has been added. Bill Wermersen of Curlew, a former resident here, visited with some of his old friends and stopped to see how August Kirschbaum was feeling after his recent spells in the hospital. Small as the town is we'd lie willing to bet the ladies were in better attire at the come-as-yuu- are coffee at the Bob Kelley home this week, than a similar group would have been in the city. Bob was handy with his camera in case there were any interesting costumes and he say's he got one good picture, not, for publication oi course. The biggest sin prise of all was finding out after the party that little Patty K< liny was the victim of the three day measles. A few anxious days were spent waiting lor symptons, but at last reports no one had caught her germs. Looks like Mack's Market got their remodeling done ju.;1 in time with the new competition hitting town last week. This has been a busy summer so far for Glennda Gabrielson as she spent last week at 4-H camp at Clear Lake. There i>: one advantage to working for the railroad as depot agenl. At least Mr Copp had enough influence to get the crew spraying the tracks to turn off their machine when they went bv his nai den. Clay pigeons are not made o. clay, but asph.iltum.
