ft~At|«na (la.) tfiurittiy, Auguit II, 1955 Tidbits From Evelyn Did you M*f Wak* uj» in Ih* morning and listen to the different noises and wonder how we sleep at all? Well I did and here is what was "on the air" — The fire siren and it's warning whistle before the engine gets out, trucks in the Post alley, the ambulance whizzing past, the whistle of the spray truck, a doe barking, the slamming of a door, a distant bird when the other noise had died down, the striking of two o'clock, and the squeak ;>f my springs as I turned over for another forty winks. Mf and Mrs Obrccht have moved into the house they purchased at Nebraska and Williams streets formerly occupied by Mr.s Bilsborough and daughter Ila. 1 had quite a chat with Mrs Ob- rccht the other day and she has some very good ideas on house- furnishing and re-decorating. She invited me to corne sec it when completed and I shall be very happy to do so. Of first interest is the kitchen which is to be an old fashioned one, even to a pump ;it the sink. Oh don't get alarmeo and pity her for the work you think she is going to have — there will be hot and cold running water in the sink — the pump is just for "atmosphere". • • • I hare a birthday this month and the other day a package was delivered by "Jud" St. John. It was. a Sunbeam electric frying pan and was given me by my cousin and his wife, Mr and Mrs Melvin Henderson. It will be very handy for me on Sundays for I .get my own meals on Esther's day off. » • « Mr and Mrs Louis Me Enroe were recently visited by Mr and Mrs Jerry Giebel of Tomahawk, Wis. Mrs Giebel was maid of honor at Mrs Me Enroe's wedding a few years ago and the women have not seen each other since. Her visit was greatly enjoyed. is one of the cutest things I've heard on the heat wave. A friend wrote a letter in which she said, "I sat around in three garments, two of which were shoes, and when I sat down, the shoes came off." • * * i When I called Mrs Don Christensen for news she replied, "We arc so busy hfro getting the ' house fixed, we, don't have time to go anywhere or have company." They are adding a couple of rooms and doing other remodeling, most of the work being done by themselves — quite a large order. • • • Poor Bonnie Cook — a rose among five "thorns", otherwise brothers. The newsct addition is a boy born July 31 to her parents, Mr and Mrs Chct, Cook. • * * Mrs Leroy Mathison and family came from Palisades, Calif., last week, and with them were Mrs Herman Moore and children (if Manhattan Beach, Calif. Mr.* Mathison is visiting her parents, Mr and Mrs Charles Kuchynka :ind Mrs Moore is with her parents, Mr and Mrs Claude Dearchs. Lcroy flew to Washington, D. C. on a business niission but will come here to join his family and will drive the car back. Mr.-Moore will return with them Ls- roy is with a religious organization and continues his art, much of it illustrating magazines in connection with his church work. • * • Mrs Lois Caidwell fell a few wreks ago and broke her arm above the wrist. The injured member was bound to an aluminum gadget shaped to fit thy hand but Mrs Caidwell finds it sort of an invention of the devil Well, I think it could be a very tiresome thing to wear, so let's hope she was able- to have it ro- muvod one day last week as anticipated. « * • I am sorry )o report my cousin. Krlwin Cudy and his wife Mayme. aren't goiim t<> get hen.- on vacation after all. They decided it v.-as a very long trip and since they wanted to see their little grandson Jo.-hua at State College, PH., they decided to fly from Houston to State College. Thes could have a longer visit thep.: by not having the Iowa trip in mind, and with the heat rind a promise of return of it, 1 ;hmk they were wise. 1 .saw them unly last May and June, ami Edwin hasn't seen his grandson. <<> 1 agreed with them the eastern trip was the more important. Leonard is a professor of Knfjlish ir.'l Journalism at the college and it is he who wrote 'The Battle Done" which Win off the press about a year ayo. The book is beinsi pub iishf-d in England too. ¥ fr k Mabel Livingston look me to Jiurl Thursday afternoon to see Mnrgyret Hnfniastcr who i.- at tin. Fairbanks K<.'.-l Home. Marian". look.- wonderful and we had such a nice visit. I think we eovered the years very well. MurgarH and I were clas.-iuates and we have kept up quite a regular correspondence but letters are not as satisfactory as visiting. Esther was with us and while 1 visited with Margaret. She and Mabel called on Mrs Cfcbkin who lives but o couple of blocks fron. Mrs Fairbanks. Mr* Gebkin i- mother of Mrs Dick Allen. Dick !s a Mcpluw of Either. * * » A ride Jbe longest way home.

Given proper directions, we drove on to the Rich fnrm but found no one at home but there along side the alfalfa field we saw them inspecting a pile of bales set at a precarious angle. John told us there was 2000 bales in the pile. I wouldn't have been surprised to see all 2000 of them falling in a heap anfi burying John. He was puzzled as to how best keep them in place. * «. • Won't it be fine if the County fair week is as pleasant as this? If it runs true to form, we'll have rain, and plenty of it. I've been looking over the premium book and plan to send some "fancy work". Bernadine Allen is going to help Lizzie Post this year in tile textiles department. Hazel Lusby was her assistant last year and had planned to be this year, but when her grandson David Hutchins, came down with polio, she decided she'd better not try the fair job. She may be heeded at her daughter Irene's, when he is brought home. He is making good recovery but the final results will not be known till a few days more. * • • Well, this is all for this week. See you at the fair. Ukena Clan Has First Reunion In 15 Years, Sunday Lakoia — A reunion of the Ukena family, all descendants of Mr and Mr.s Juren E.
