Tidbits From Evelyn Mr and Mrs Rick Fabrizio spent a recent weekend at Gut- lonberg with Mr and Mrs Robert Pousch. Gutlenberg is a quaint little town on the very edge of the Mississippi river where a very good view of the locks may be seen. The Fabrizios wore hopeful a boat or boats would go through but luck wasn't with them. » » * The Ab Longs had already arrived before their card which stated they would be here in a few days. The card pictured the Hot Fish Shop at the foot of "Sugar Loaf" hill on the eastern edge of Winona. Minn. I saw it a year ago and wo passed the "Shop" because there were already so many cars parked there we figured it would be a considerable length of time before we could be served. Night was falling and we were anxious to get to a hotel. We were guests df "Mac" and Evalyn McDougall the following day at lunch and 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 anil 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.' » « « I .wish the "Des Moines Register" would R'< back to it's old way of presenting the radio programs. I certainly don't like the now way—hunt all over the page for the station wanted. The old way was MI simple. • • • Here I am, writing news four days per week and didn't find out till a few days ago that Mr and Mrs Irving Uich had moved to Greenville. S. C. where then son Albeit is attending the Bob Jones University. They have rented the farm to Wesley Mains and the house to Mr and Mrs Harvey Graham. It doesn't sound as though they have de*s- iTted Algona all together, but probably just till Albert finishes college. 999 Jane Barnes, nee Jane Laird, of !">:•.s Moines has been spending >'-;r;e tune hi;re with her mother. Mrs Cidney Laird prior to moving to Santa Monica, Calif.. whero her husband Stewart is already located. The Hurry Guldens lost their daughter and her family to California ton. They ore Mr and Mrs Tom Kabun (Joan) but a nice yjcir of i; is that the girls have known each L. S. BOHANNON We were looking at new homes. I was amazed at the high prices. A home like ours would cost $5,000 more than our fire insurance to rebuild it. Could we insure to full value- for only about $9 more per year. For the answers to your insurance questions, fee] free to call me at the Bohannon i Insurance Agency, Phone 103. other since children and will bo able to resume this friendship. In fact Joan has volunteered to get the apartment ship-shape for Jane before her arrival. * * 9 Faucet handles should be of metal—good sturdy stuff—and I am sure Mrs Leo McEnroe will agree with me. Thanksgiving day she had the misfortune to have one en" the porcelain or china kind break and cut her hand badly. She ha"d to go to St. Ann to have it taken care of. * * * I had a folder from Mr and Mrs Sherman Little a few days ago. It was a program of the California Dairy Industry Inc., meeting held at the Miramar, Santa Monica, Calif. Sherman's name was li.sted as an associate member and Mrs Little's was listed among the hostesses at the Ladies cocktail party. The women were entertained by a tour of Disneyland. Thirty nine companies were li.sted, among them the Cherry Burrell with which Albert Granzow was associated so many years, and the Weber showcase and fixture company for which Sherman work s. "Sherm" and Estelle will be remembered by many here, especially Sherm who is a native Al- gonan. He moved with his parents and brother. Tom, and a sister to California many yeans ago. Mrs Emma Dehnert has made good recovery from her recent heart attack. She says every one tells her it was similar to "Ike's", but even that doesn't make her like it any better. She has always been so active it was a hardship to have to remain in bed a lew weeks. She is now able to be up and around, goes across the hall to her daughter's apartment (Mrs R. A. Johnston) and has her meals with them. Helen Ziltrilsch is here from Huntington Park, Calif., and will remain a couple of weeks with her mother, Mrs Mary Zittritsch and other relatives. She flew from Huntington Park to Greenville, Pa., in the interests of the Decca company with which she is employed. The comapny manufacture^ aluminum patio and juvenile furniture. Helen had planned to fly from Pennsylvania, thence Chicago and to Fort Dodge, reaching there around ten o'clock p.m. Mr and Mrs Jim Kelley, Tracie Kelley and Eli/abeth Post were to have met her. "Lizzie" and I were dinner guests at Hazel Lusby's along with the A. L. Longs, when a phone call came. Lizzie Was informed the trip to Fort Dodge was OFF. Helen's plane had been grounded at Chicago and she was coming in on the train the next morning. Flying is not a new experience -fof Helen as she made a trip via plane to Honolulu last year. She loves it, thinks there is no other way, plans to RO back to Califor| nia via plane and one can hard' ly blame her for her enthusiasm for she can get places so quickly, whereas, as she said, "It took me eleven hours to gel her* 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., atv' left a few weeks iiijo. He r-.vse.s the home I folk ;md w >uld . "t.-ciate hearing from hi< frii ;...'>. Hss ad- rtre.s< is 429 8th Avc. He has rr.t't a few former AlRonans, among them Mr and Mrs Dennis Goeders who are at St. Petersburg, or is it Clearwater? Kn route to Florida he stopped at Juliet. Ill, to visit his niece and her husband Mr and Mr? Simmons. Mrs Simmons is the former Barbara Schneider. 999 Now for a few more 1896 items --Miss Josse Pettibone is in Biooklyn in her second year of study in china decoration. She will graduate in June. (She was art teacher in the schools year:; ago! Mrs Hurry Wilson used to paint china too, and taught it. I remember well the beautifully dinner M-t Lucille Crose painted, under Mrs Wilson's teaching. There was a twin 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 never 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.
