Tidbits From Evelyn Mf* Olivet fcakken searched two days in vain for a missing handbag alid finally advertised for it. On the very day she had the ad run, she received by mail a package, which when opened, revealed to her delight, the missing bag. It was sent to her by her brother William Anderson who had been visiting here and had taken her for a ride. He went -on from here to Hot Springs, Mo. and discovered the handbag enroute. * * « I listened to the Lawrence Welk program Sunday afternoon. Dick Hill was announced a singer but certainly he meant Dale, Tolas everyone who follows Welk's program knows it is Dick Dale, son of Mrs Gertrude Dale and brother of Mrs Harold Cowan who is soloist. Maybe the announcer was thinking "Over Hill and Dale" and became muddled, * * * Two Algonans have met in San Diego—Ensign Edd Laihg and Biu Guderian, also of the navy. , • * * One of ihe nicest things about Christmas is hearing from friends. This year I had three pictures of interest, one of ,the three little Cady boys, sons of Dr. and Mrs Jerry Cady, of China Lake, Calif, Glen and Gary look enough alike to be twins. Dr. Jerry has decided to take a 2- year G. P, residency so the family will be moving to San Diego, Calif., sometime before August 1. He was made Lieutenant' in November and is a Flight Sur- eon. He had spent some time in Korea and returned to the States a year ago. The second picture was of Don and Arlis Akre and children Dona, Debra and Steven. The letter which accompanied the picture gave the news that Don's sister, Hazel Parr, is visiting their brother, Charles and family at Arlington, Va. Mr Parr died several weeks ago following a rather long sickness. The third pcture was of Suzanne McGnnis. Her lap was completely filled with the family pet, a friendly looking dog, black and white of the Spaniel breed I'd say. • * • A letter from Genevieve and Ed Genrich redd in part, "The big event in our family was the birth of a wonderful grandson last Christmas day. He' was christened Martin Edward Genrich. Martin really is such a jewel and a real boy—so alert and bright, big and robust, happy and jolly. 'Howard and Dorlyne live in Long Beach which" is about 33 miles from us, so we get to see them often. Howard teaches science in Long Beach, They bought a duplex last spring and are beginning to put down home roots. We moved to California in August of '54. We temporarily settled in Anaheim where Geneieve taught and Ed worked in a TV and radio department of an appliance store. When we came to Calfornia we had in mind the purchase of a motel or apartment house but wound up with a trai- Jer park. We took possession May 1, 1955. We are happy that we changed our minds for a trailer park is a lot of fun and always interesting. Our park is in Duarte, about ten miles east of Pasadena. We have 26 trailer spaces and two houses. One house is rental and the house we live in is small but comfortable —four rooms and bath The park is small but well located and is very pretty with many, many shade and fruit trees, flowers and shrubs. The San Gabriel mountains rise directly behind us, always an inspiring view. Most of our tenants are. the permanent type—many have been here lor years. Trailer dwellers are friendly, congenial, helpful and above all know how to get along with their neighbors. Ed has a TV and radio shop here in the park so he squeezes in some work on the side after all, 30 odd years of it had become a well established habit. The school room still has an attraction for Genevieve and so she has done some substitute teaching. * *, * Jean Wadsworth inquires Item Denver, Colo., "Frozen up back there?" It is too early to predict what January and February will dish up, but so far, except for that one cold spell, Iowa .has been behaving very well, I shall answer her when I can get around to it. * * * Mr and Mrs Max Miller sent a very pretty card from 512 East Fourteenth street, Davenport, la. A typical farm scene as to shock of corn, but a bob sled is rather passe but looks well on a Christmas card. Young folk don't know what they are missing by not going on bob sled parties. The outline of Iowa with Davenport marked with a star is clever. Davenport is a star town-city I should say. The Millers regreted missing being with the Algona grandchildren. They went to Chicago and were guests of Mrs Miller's sister. They, also saw Mr Miller's brother who was in a hospital there. * * * Neva Potter (nee Patterson) wrote from Portland, Oregon. "From all reports you folks are having a cold winter. So are we. At least we have had two snow flurries and all my flowers are gone. We usually can pick a few rose buds up to Christinas, but not this year." * * * Friends of Myrtle Johannsen of Waverly will be interested in her letter. —"I am walking now, at least around the house, but must use a cane when I go out. I am so thankful I am as well as I am. I do enjoy your "Tidbits" so much." * * • This letter from my cousin Lola Henderson Swinney who formerly lived at Riverside, Cal. makes me want to visit her again. "Bet you were surprised at our moving. (She can say that again) We have the lovliest home up here in the Mill Creek canyon. Beautiful view from every window. Have a roomy house-plus a guest house so it's wonderful for having company, and we do have lots of that. I hope to find time after the holidays to write more about our horne and will send some pictures. Mel (the son, a geology professor at Stanford university) and family will be here for the holidays." * * * I am always glad to hear from the McDougalls too. They live at Winona, Minn., and will be well- remembered, as well as the son Bob. He was married a few years ago. Has a daughter Kristcn who, grandma "Mac" says, "Walked when she was ten months old." CONVERT YOUR GRAINS TO SOLID MEATY GAINS 'As Much As $9.00 Savings Per 100 Lbs. Gain" MINRAL MEAL Corn savings now pay off more than ever! And you can gel first class RESULTS with your hogs on Sargent Min- ral Meal. Results on corn savings are greatest with proper supplementing. Tests prove that you can save up to 6 bushels of corn per 100 pounds gain, compared to ordinary corn feeding. That cu»s normal corn costs in half. If corn is $1.50, you can save up to $9 cash per 100 pounds of gains. On a 200 pound hog, that adds up to $18. Sargent Minral Meal gets such big corn savings RESULTS, because it has the genuine pork building ingredients. Blends these into a great money-saving hog supplement. Sargent Minral Meal has vitamins, proteins and minrals plus extra factors. On Minral Meal, hogs just naturally make a healthy, profitable finish. 4 Big Meat-Building Supplements All In One Bag — All At One Low Price On Sale Also At Algona Flour & Feed Co. Sargent & Co "Makers of Famous Sargent Feed*" "What run," sh P adds, "To have a little girl to '.sew for. Weather permitting "Mom" will be here for Christmas and the kids too. (Bob, Holly and Kristen) Holly's mother is coming too. Bob is so happy with his now job. They'se at Menasha*, Wis. He i's in Marketing Training Program with the Marathon Paper Company." * » » Lfela Stewart'was not in a gay mood when she wrote for she had recently flown to Long Beach, with her husband George, called there by the death of her father, Bert Peck, who had been ailing for some time. Mr Peck will be well-remembered here. It was he who ran a livery stable years ago, later retired and moved to California. » * * Elsie Glaser Jones (Mrs W. J.) sent- such a fine letter. I didn't get to visit with' her half long enough when she was here for the centennial and her t!rno was cut short by the nexvs of hef mother falling and suffering a broken leg. Of hef she Writes "Mother as made a not uneventful but fairly certain recovery. Her mind is good, fortunately, and she reads with a reading glass and listens to the radio." * * * 1 left home December 19 fot Iowa City and opened a few gifts that came early. Among them were two handkerchiefs, ' one' from Margaret Hofmaster. Tr)« other got separated from the card and for the life of me I don't remember who sent it. If anyone did who reads this, please let me know so I can say "Thanks". Also a card announcing a two year's subscription to Capper's Magazine, but no name of the donor. Please step forward so I can say "Thanks" to you .too. And thus, Santa Clans stepped into his sleigh, cracked the whip ovr-.y Dancer nnd Pranrer nnrl the Other six reindeer and we won't be seeing him again for three hundred and fifty-three days. Long enough for everyone to Ciitch thr-ir breath. Extension Unit Council Meets And Organizes The Kossulh County Extension Council held its organization meeting in Algona, Wednesday, J.'in. 4.

' Let's all join to put the Kossuth County, Iowa, March of Dimes over with a bang! Let's dig a little, even if it hurts, to see that our quota is met.

Take a tiny moment to think what it would mean to you if a loved one — your child — were beset suddenly with the dread Polio.

So take your place in this noble cause . . . and welcome your county solicitor when he or she calls at your door.
