A nephew, Warren Godden of AJgona, is home from army service*; Jn Germany. A niece and family, Mr and Mrs Harold Merills are visiting fr'om West Virginia and Mrs Merrill's mother, Mrs Fanny, Spiker of Buffalo Center, accompanied fhem here. Another nephew, Vernon Larson and family are visiting from Phoenix, Ariz. Local callers were Mrs Martin Mimbach, Mrs Joe Namer, Mrs August Kirschbaum, Mrs Leo Kirschbaum and family ajid the-old faithfuls, Mrs Arch Burger and Mrs Bud Elberts. The • telephone being added this week shbuld be more company. Fred Jennings <"and his sister;' Julia Taft, attended the OK Settlers Picnic at Grant Twp. Sunday. Mr and Mrs Don Jennings and baby Ann, of Albert City were callers. Mrs Jennings sounded like a proud aunt saying she was a beautiful baby with beautiful red hair. Glennda Gabrielson accompanied Martin Mimbach and Leola Schieber to Blue Earth, where Leola caught the bus to her home at Henderson, Minn. . She had been visiting here with her grandparents. The pretty little blond visiting Sammy Prevv the past week was only his aunt, June Ditsworth of Algona. One of those "they'll do it every time incidents" happened to Clarence Huff. He sold his junk including old car and. tractor to a junk dealer who cut it up. The same day people began stopping to ask if he wanted to sell the same items. i There's good proof Glenn Gabrielson doesn't waste any time getting his work done. They returned from a trip to Chicago one afternoon last week and the same day Glenn was seen driving the tractor and wagon to thfj elevator and still dressed in his blue suit. While on the trip they stopped at West Branch, la. to attend the 25th high school reunion of Mrs Gabrielson. Arch Burger was luckier than Mr and Mrs Henry Bailey and Mr and Mrs Bud Elberts. Arch •was helping with thfe' coh).bir4n^ on the Bailey place and 'was'in the crib when the''latest rain storm hit, soaking everyone else out in the field. Not all farmers arc lucky enough to have boys at home to help but Art Klein should get by anyway if the other two girls are as good tractor drivers qs Virginia. Most farmers who retire and move to town don't really mean it. Harvey Steven is a good example as lie is often seen during the busy season-around the "old home place" where his son Everett, now lives. For a different reason it is 'also a popular place with the neighborhood youngsters and a few visiting cousins from town. The Stevens have been pasturing a riding horse at their place for the summer. • St. Joe Relatives Attend Rites, Sterling, III.
