I'll give you my impressions later vhen the trip is an accomplished fact. I think it would be a fine idea if some dress manufacturers would cnme up with fnicks with detachable sleeves.

Sargent & Co "Makers of Famous Sargent Feeds" to tell me about her vacation. She- went lo Dos Moines and there joined her niece, Lorraine Tierney, who took her via unto to Norfolk, Va.. where they visited Lorraine's nephew and family, Mr and Mrs Craig Tierney. Craig is in the navy but his sea time will expire in October. He had been living in Chicago and will return there. Mrs Tobin said she had never traveled extensively so the 3300 miles trip was most enjoyable. She loved going over the Mississippi bridge—and in spite of the many times I have gone over it. it is still a thrill. * * * Other vacationers are Dr. and Mrs F. E. Sawyer. With friends, Mr and Mrs T. A. Olson of Houston, they are at Kenora, Ontario, Canada. A card to mo from Mrs Sawyer said, "So many tourists it is difficult to find lodging." The scenery is beautiful." I hope it was cool there. The Leighto'n Misbachs have returned from Winnipeg, Canada. Mrs Misbach said they slept under blankets every night. Mrs NelJ McCall has returned from a vacation in Colorado. She reports the weather was so cold potatoes were frozen. (Look out for a rise in prices now) Days were quite warm however. What a freakish thing weather is, ' » » * We read of horrors in the papers but until we hear of some one who is near to them, it doesn't make the impression on us it does when we know of relationships. Mrs Don Prieskorn is a cousin of the late little Donna Sue Davis, who was abducted and slain at Sioux City recently. Her mother and Mrs Prieskorn are first cousins. v * * Talk about Ihe "luck of Ihe Irish." Mrs Matthew Streit and I were talking recently about drawings and money and luck in general. She said few families could top this. Sue Ca sister-maw of hers. I believe) won a car at Sibley not too long ago in the month of Angus! or September. In October the same year Fred, brother of her husband "Matt", also won a car. * * » Speaking of luck—Mrs Edgar Campbell is wondering if the eight four leaf clovers .she found while hanging out the family wasli recently means extra good luck. Maybe it was luck that it was a fine d;jy. Or luck that she was able to do the washing—Oh there are lots of angles of Juek * * « What do you think of Bimbo for a nickname? Kinda cute isn't it—but I wonder what Dawn Wil- wicki will think of it when she reaches young womanhood. That's the trouble, they cling all through the years. I know of a "Butch" —Most people don't know he has another name. Likewise there is a Toots I know of, two of them in fact, and a Babe which is certainly a misnomer for he's a big hulk of a man who ill fits Babe. I have know an Kvelyn who has been Peggy all through the years. By moving out of town "Katx" Hosewall finally became the real lljalmer and ••Hump" King became the natural Horace. This is a wide field I've barely touched but it comes as a warning to parents (who don't care what I think). If you don't want nicknames, don't start them. * * * This tale might have had a different end if a bed hadn't been placed where it was and it could easily have spelled disaster for Kinma Dehnert. The other clay she was re-aching the top of a closet where she had stored some seivmg Hays. She was on a step-stool to reach them and as sh(' stepped down, her foot landed on something soft. Thinking her pet parakeet Dickie who wa.s flying about the room had some way gotten under her foot, she swerv- ed aside to avoid hurting him —only to find herself flat on her back on the bed. And it wasn't Dickie she had stepped on—it was her bed spread which hangs down at the corners. * * * Edna Mitchell and her son Carroll, have just returned from a nice vacation too. Her son Willard, and daughter Marjorie, Mrs Kenneth Olympius sent them the round-fare tickets and they left June 5 for Long Beach and Los Angeles. They returned 'home Monday, July 18, a nice length of time to "do" California. Willard drives a greyhound bus and it was by bus and scenic cruiser they made the trip. Among the interesting happenings was Mrs Mitchell's appearance on T.V.. the "Queen for a Day" program. But in spite of the beauty and glamour of California, Mrs Mitchell says she would not care to live there. I mustn't forget to mention they attended a Lawrence Welk program and saw Dick Dale. Dick and her children were friends when they were youngsters and Dick lived here. To hear the program almost persuades me t& buy a T.V., though so far I've been very cold to the idea. • • • Summer is flitting away too rapidly and one is aware of it with the arrival of the fall Montgomery Ward and Sears and Roebuck catalogues. Another sign is the robins riot waking one at daylight with their cheerful and energetic warbling. The families are raised, the year's work is over. Cicadas sing in the trees— or whatever they are. Some call them tree toads some say it's crickets. Anyhow whatever it is, fall is coming. • • • More vacation reports—Mr and Mrs D. D. Monlux left a month ago with their son, Dr. William, of Ames, for a vacation in the west and returned home July 15. They first went to the Bad Lands, the Black Hills and Rushmore, to Yellowstone Park, the Custer battlefield, and Custer Park. Crater Lake, Zion and Bryce Canyons, Colorado Springs, etc. At Federal Center they saw miniature dams fashioned exactly like the large ones. There aiv used to further experimental projects. At Fresno, Calif., they visited their son and daughter-in-law. Mr and Mrs Robert Monlux and five children and at Denver they were with another son and daughter-in-law, Dr. and Mrs Andrew Monlux. * * * Rovn's lunch bar is very attractive. I've wondered for some time why the dime stores here didn't follow the pattern of other town.s — Mason City, Fairmont, and the larger places have had them for years. American people like to eat (so do other nation? as far as that goes) and now it would be an idea if we'd have the .sidewalk cafes a la France. • • • 1906 Memories Mayor W. K. Ferguson expected to leave in a few days for the east. He will attend the commencement exercises at Dartmouth College, his alma mater, and visit his mother at Malone, New York, before returning home May and Lillie Bowen, daughters of A. L.
