Tidbits fmm IveM • •" ' ' ' * •- /•-;-'»..,* , *Jti< arid M*s Rick ratuuio spent a recent weekend at Guttenberg with Mr and Mrs Robert Pousch.. Guttenberg 'is "a 'quaint Nttte. tpwa on .the' v&y : the Mississippi river where'a very good View of the. locks mat be seen.' The Fabrizibr were hopeful a boat or boats would go through but luck wasn't with them. • , .• ' '* * * „ . The Ab Longs had already ar"} rived, before their card which i stated they would be here in a i few days. The card pictured the ? Hot Fish Shop at the foot of " f "Sugar Loaf" hill on the eastern edge of winona, Minn. I saw* it ••• a year ago arid we passed the "Shop" because there were already so many cars parked there we figured it would be a con: . siderable length of time' before We could, be seryed. Night was falling and we were anxious to , get to a hotel. We x were'guests of "Mac" and Evalyn McDdugall the following day at lunch arid their home seems almost at the foot of the hill, yet distant enough to enjoy the view. It is an abrupt rise of ground,'shrub and tree covered and at the top is a ' white shaft much; smaller than the hill itself, and it Is probably this white "loaf": which gives it the name "Sugar Loaf. 1 ' I wish the "Des Moines-Register" would go back to it's qld way. of presenting the radio programs, I .certainly don't like the new way—hunt all over the* gage! for the station wanted. The: old way was so simple. | .

It doesn't sound as though they have des- 1 erted Algona all together, but probably just till Albert finishes college. ,. ' ' '• \ .';• • - > , •.

She loves, it, thinks there' is no other way, plans to go'back to California via plane,and one can hardly, blame her for her enthusiasm for she can get' places so quickly, whereas, as she said,"It took me eleven hours to get here from Chicago." Think where you can get in eleven hours in a plane. *,.; . Adrian Casler* doesn't stand the cold,weather very well and was told by his doctor to get away from here till spring. He chose Plateau, Fla., and left a few weeks a'go. He misses the home folk and would appreciate hearing from his friends. His address is 42$ 8th Ave. He has met a few former Algonans, among them Mr and Mrs Dennis Goeders who are at St. Petersburg, or is" it Clearwater? En route to Florida he stopped af Joliet, 111., to visit tyis niece and her husband Mr and Mrs George Simmons. Mrs Simmons is the former Barbara Schneider. * * . * Now for a few more 1896 items —Miss Josie Pettibone is in Brooklyn in her second year of study in china decoration. She will graduate in June. (She was art teacher in the schools years ago) Mrs Harry Wilson pajnt china too, and taught it. I remember well the beautifully dinner set Lucille Crose painted, under Mrs Wilson's teaching. There was a sister Jennie Pettibone and they lived with their mother in the house just east of the Methodist church. Can't you "old timers" see the Pettibones" and Mrs Jim Patterson ' riding around in a surrey drawn by a single horse? The animal neyer went off that slow walk. If it had, I wonder what the ladies would have done. Judge Quarton let in 34 new citizens at Estherville, Monday, and opened court long enough here to let in six. Theo Chrls- chilles (grandfather of our Theo H.) G. F. Peek and Perry Burlingame are subpoenaed to Fort Dodge to sit on federal juries. None of them enjoy the job. LONE ROCK NEWS Mrs W. J.

Which means a new lift to anyone's spirit—from the new sweep-ahead look of it —the new might of its 822-cubic-inch V8 engine raised to lofty new power highs — the new sizzle of its advanced Variable Pitch Pynaflow*—th^ true sweetness of its great new ride, \ But it's a lot more than that. It's Buick's highly versatile Estate Wagon—new sub- ttontiany lowered in price for 1956 — and how much more practical can you get than that? For with this one, and for an easy-to-reach figure—you have a car with all the suavity of a smart sedan plus the all-duty handiness of a suburban vehicle. You have a car completely steel-bodied, so its exterior upkeep stays simple and inexpensive—and a car more than roomy enough to carry six and their gear. You have a covered platform that's plain wonderful. It can take an inflated air mattress. It can freight a small rowboat and camp equipment. It can hold luggage, or golf clubs—or the results of a mad shopping spree, even if you go in for antique furniture 1 .
