Tidbits From Evelyn 1 reported last week on Mabel Livingston's condition, not enough clothes for so long a stay in Phoenix, Ariz. Hazel Vern was worse off. When she and Frank went to Waterloo recently to spend a week with their son-in- law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Melvin Htitchinson, the suit case was packed all right, but Frank had forgotten to put it in the car. And since there was no one going to Al^ona, Hazel had a good excuse to buy a few things. Wives —heed this and pull the same stunt. * * * The Del Carvers have purchased a trailer house with next summer vacation irr mind. When I saw it standing in their yard, of course my curiosity got the brt- ter of me and I immediately plumed to learn what it was all about. I thought perhaps a relative had pulled in for the winter. Mrs Carver said they were remodeling the interior and every now and then I hear the rap-a- tap-tap of a hammer. Kinda lake a'50-yaird dash" to tta telephone-and find tha party* had hung up ?

She was found curled up on the floor on a blanket at a neighbors, peacefully sleeping, totally unconscious of the anxiety she had caused her family. Only a short time ago she usain came up missing and was found a few blocks from home. This time she was quite a lightened little girl and this may be a lesson. * * * Mrs Max Blast told me she had celebrated her wedding anniversary this year by having some x-ray pictures taken. I' asked her if she thought this picture on the thirtieth anniversary resembled the bride of so many years ago. Nevertheless the day ended pleasantly with her son- in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Burton Vnrcoe and children of Emmotsburg joining them for six o'clock dinner, Mrs Varcoe bringing most of the food. » * » The irony of fate — The morning of the "burial service for the laie Carrie Wernert hei; nephew- Charles Sweeney and wife came Irom Cedar Rapids, almost too late. They had known she was in poor health but had received no word of her death as they had been away from home. The previous week they had' lost a little eight year old daughter and had taken a little trip to get their nerves settled. When I phoned Mrs William Ankenbauer Sr., for possible news the other morning, she replied that she might have news — important news before long. The stork was hovering over her son William . Junior's home, in fact the bird had been expected a fortnight ago. But it looked as though he really was getting around to delivering his package this time and Mrs William Jr.., was' at that moment at St. Ann .hospital to meet Sir Stork. Having heard nothing the following morning, I again phoned Mrs A. No one answered, but an hour or so afterward. My phone rang and it was the big news. A son William Ray had been left on the "doorsteps" of the William A's Junior. Community Service Project 6-AIgoflti (fa.)

Surely the "bigwigs" at the office didn't really have to ponder the question. * * * It's kinda cozy when "Pa" and "Ma" can be hospitalized at the same time. I don't suppose hospital rules allow husbands and wives to share the same room, but it is comforting to know the other is close at hand. Such is the case of Mr and Mrs W. Holldorf, both of whom are at a Rochester hospital. He had surgery for a hernia and she had her gall bladder removed. • * * Dr and Mrs M. G. Bourne really "lived it up" on a recent weekend.

Larry is now at San Diego,. Calif., and Michael is here with his mo- thej'. Mrs Don Craig. His father who had been at the Great Lakes naval station has been sent over seas and while he is gone Barbara and the baby will be here with her parents. » » « I never did a washing in my life and can't remember ever hanging wet clothes on the lines, so this observation from a house- wile of many years didn't mean much to me until she explained it. She had watched a couple of neighbors hang out slothes, notc"cT" that when the sheets were hung over the line in the centers of the sheets, the women pulled at each end stretching the sheet as lightly as possible. She said she never did that. She let the sheet (or table cloth, etc.) go on the line just sort of "relaxed." The edges are straight then, but with the taut sheets etc., when they are dried, there is a bulge where they were pinned and stretched. So what? Well, maybe housewives know.

(I think she is a sister of Bill Haggard). Mrs Edith Bowyer Whiffen of Chicago, is here at the home of her parents, Mr and Mrs E. G. Bowyer. (She was a beautiful and talented woman who died young—much too young — in California). Mrs A. H. Stock and son left on a visit to Chicago, Wednesday evening.
