6-Afgona (Jo.) Upper Des Mdines Thursday, October 6, 1955 Tidbits From Fve/yn Band Festival weather is winning as bad a reputation as the Kossuth county fair — always r;jiny or cold. The fair went 'in rovprpo this year and the heat kept many away, but the Festival ran true to 'form — a chilly, g day. Nevertheless thorp was a good crowd, if the number nf cars parked in my vicinity %vas any indication. * * * Another friend furnished a "hair story" for me. She- has a very heavy growth and has it thinned frequently. The other Ends Thursday: "FRANCIS IN THE NAVY" FRI. - SAT. ALCONA^v THE BOOK WRITTEN AGAINST A DATE WITH DEATH! NOW THE SHOCK EVENT OF THE SCREEN YEAR!

After doing the job a few days ago, she glanced at the scisors and discovered she -had used PINKING scissors. What an elegant fringe she must have made! * * * From all I hear about Jefferson, Hazel Lusby's parakeet, he must be the most educated bird of birds. He pushes a little cart with a tiny weighted "cluck" in it, pulls the duck around by its bill and if a caller holds the phony bird, Jeff is right there to try and get it away, acting as though he was saying, "You can't have my playmate." Or perhaps it's jealousy. '»*:>' Never let it be said Texas melons won't grow here. From the seeds Lizzie Post planted from the melon we ate in Houston last June, fifteen melons matured and were delicio'us. She brought onfe to me and it was a fine specimen. * * * This is such a wonderful lime of year to go places.. It was hard for Bob Sigsbee to say "No" to his friends, Robert Dunsmoor and Darwin Brand of Fort Dodge when they stopped to try and per- sude him to go fishing with them at Spirit Lake. But Bob was too busy. * * * Mr and Mrs Brundage are more fortunate. They are taking Mr B'.s vacation time to go to Chicago, points in Indiana and Michigan where they will visit relatives, and will then drop down to Kentucky and Tennessee and thence to Little Rock, Ark., where they will visit their son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs James Biggers and children. They plan to be gone three wcoks. * * • At a parly the other evening the women got to talking politics. It would be interesting if I dared tell you the candidates for mayor they favored, and for councilman. It would be fun to know the reactions of others to the name?? mentioned. They were mighty good, too, I'm here to tell you. Who knows, maybe some will be approached and their name will appear on the tickets. * * * I called on Mrs Lolla Ladendorff Thursday when I read her ad and knew she was moving. I have known her ever since I was a very little girl and one of the things I remembered of having to play with for amusement was her stereoptican views.. I've poured over them by the hour She gave me the pictures and now I want to borrow a camera. Her's had been lost or misplaced. » » • Two persons called to tell me I had erred in saying Joel Taylor was father of Nellie, as reported in the old time part of my column' last week. Her father was Frank Taylor. And well as I knew the difference, I said, Harvey Wadsworth was a son of Henry. Harvey was the son of WE AVE IT!

Always good news to one who writes, no matter how trivial the column may be, * * * ' May'and October are my favorite months. I wonder how many of you remember the old song we sang in high school. "The suns of May for the school-girls' play, but give to the boys October." * * * There has been a new addition to the Cady clan, little James Thomas who was born Sept. 24 to Dr. and Mrs Jerry Cady at China Lake, Calif. This is the third child, the third son, so my reactions to that blue card wasn't too pleasant. I wanted a GIRL. China Lake is situated in the middle of California, an arid, hot place that is made livable by air conditioning in each house. Jerry has several months yet before his discharge and will eventually settle in Seattle. He returned from service in Korea last Dec. * * * A letter from Mabel Livingston to friends says it is probable she and her husband Charley, will be in Phoenix till mid-Nov.

George has some business here, so while the Stewarts are in Algona, the Livingstons will carry on at Phoenix. * * * News under date of August, 1907—B. F. Grose and W. J.
