(j«.) Upper Oes Moines Thursday, Nov. 17, 1955 i Tidbits From Evelyn A friend drew my attention to an error I made in reporting on the Abner Longs at Harrisburp. Pa. I said J. T. Long, so the friend said, and of course I meant J. T. Jackson lives there and owns property. Which all goo:; to show I should read my copy more carefully before sending it in. J. T. is a brother of the late Sarah Jackson who for several years before her marriage was .stenographer in the Sullivan and McMahon law offices. Lavonne Piltman says she and her husband haven't much time for partying and gadding around. With an expanding family they fennel they needed two more rooms and are adding them to their eule little home on So. Jerome st. The- Harold Jergensons have added three rooms and a bath to their home on South Minnesota and Fair streets. * * « Cecil Schilmoeller has been having trouble with a knee which he injured .-;ome time ago. Fortunately it is healing nicely and he will soon be fit as a fiddle and ready for basketball. # « » The Thompson Distributing Company is opening an office at Omaha, Neb. Kmil Hanson, husband of Vivian Thompson, has been chosen as" manager and the couple recently moved there. * * * II lakes coufage to have the kind of a 'job Bernard Wilson lias. He. spends about, eight months of (he year at Toule Air Base, Greenland, in a civilian job. The settlement is about the size of Emmetsburg. established on ice, all pipes laid on top of the "ground". 11 is only 500 mile.-, from the north pole. Bernard has been working at the base the past five years. He is the twin brother of Mrs Vaughan Rising Probably the best part of it if the very good pay. * * * Bob Stebriiz and some friends were expected from Fort Worth, Texas, for the pheasant hunting. Bob is a pilot and he was to bring Uip^Jrionds via plane. Hebodside, a nice arrangement. Shedaughlcrs, Mrs Ruby Royce, of " '"" ' ...... - . Moines, Mrs Marjorie Apple is making the army his career. * * * The Harriet Brown - Ronald Peterson wedding was Nov. 11, the 30th wedding anniversary of Harriet's parents, Mr and Mrs Ralph Brown. A nice idea to have anniversaries dates. the same When Mrs Bob Sigsbee answer* ed the phone the other day she began quite a, discourse thinking it was I who had called. She thinks my voice and that of a friend are very similar. * * * I had a phone call the other day that surprised me. It was Emma Dehnert. As most of you know, she has been quite Sick and still isn't out of bed except to sit in a rocker at not too long intervals. Her phone is at her can look across the, street and when the light is on she can see me here under the light .at my desk. She says I am company for her, just seeing me. * * * Luella Baker is one of the first "birds" to fly to a warmer clime for the winter. For several years she has been wintering at Tucson, Ariz. This year she' left with her brother-in-law, t)r.-. and Mrs H. H. Stewart, of Kanawha, for California where the Stewarts will spend .the winter. Mrs Baker will be there for awhile and will then go to Tucson for most of the time. They stopped enroute at Ames to see Mrs Baker's son and daughter-in- law, Dr. and Mrg Durwood Baker and family. The Floyd Turners have three of 'Algona and Mrs Pauline De- Kruif, of Sheldon. The three got together recently at Sheldon, a farewell visit before Mrs Boyce leaves for Toronto, Can., to join her husband who has been there Several months working for an insurance company. He went first to see how he was going to like it before pulling up stakes and leaving Des Moines. * • • 4 I haven't been feeling too chipper of late—the usual winter ills, cold and cough—and the rattle of this machine doesn't help my head any, so the column is brief this week. Hope to do better next. * * • I'll close with some items of 1398—I know there are still quite a number of people who will remember the ones spokon of in the column. "Auditor Calkins is in his new hohie and comfortably settled. Fred Dormay who has not walked for five years, was carried to the polls yesterday. He was bound to cast a vote for McKihley. The winter term of the .normal school opens .next week Tuesday. Prof. Lilly says every prospect promises a good attendance. Mr Wadsworth, father of J. W. and T. H., went back to-his Wisconsin home to cast his vote. He had no other business but didn't propose to lose his ballot this year. (Wond_er if any town ever had six candidates for mayor)* Lewis II. Smith has an old ballot voted in Algona in 1876, just 20 years ago, with Samuel J. Tilden for president. It is a little insignificant looking strip of paper 1 . More next week.
