Tidbits From Evelyn there are those who like parakeets and those who don't, and then there is another group that think they don't like them hut after several days of "bird sitting" they find themselves completely won over. Such is the case of Myrna Orton. She thought a bird was just, another feathered friend that she could do with if he'd stay out in the trees and the great out doors. A couple of weeks of close contact with the Louis Neuhring's "Shortie" has caused a "right about face." Mrs Ncuhring, wife of the Ambrose Call State park custodian, was in DCS Moines a fortnight caring for her father, during which time Myrna in turn cared for "Shortie", and lost her heart to the little fellow. * * * Louis Gade, former Algonan who now lives at Forest City, had planned to spend Sunday at Ames doing some bowling, with these plans in mind, his wife came h'ere to spend from Friday till Sunday evening with her parents, Mr and Mrs A. V. Schweppe. Mrs Gade'is the one who got the little vacation and l.ouie was left much alone at Forest City, the snows having changed his plans completely. Tuesday, January 24, t$S6 Mfldna (la.)

How about having rules that only those of certain height could complete? Or only tall teams could meet tall teams and short teams likewise? * • » Carl Paeiz and his family were creatly grateful that Glenn Harms should choose Carl on whom to make his first call after he had been dismissed from St, Ann. Carl was recently brought home from the Lutheran hospital, Fort Dodge, and is still confined to his home. Glenn recently was dismissed from St. Ann. He is making good recovery from a heart attack but 7-nust take things easy for awhile. . * » » My column on my recent university hospital sojourn turned out to be of interest to some persons I just heard from, among theru Mrs Moshpr whose husband is a« cousin of the late Mrs Irvinf Melhus whom I mentioned. Mrs Owen Booth phoned to tell me she is well acquainted with the Mrs Robert Henney I mentioned and since Mrs Booth has boon a Iowa City with ;i daughter who is to soon have oyc surgery, she could go with me, so to speak as I was taken up elevators, clown corridors and into various consulting rooms Mrs William B»u ST. has never succumbed to the house-trailer idea but she is hoping she will be won over by the new twenty- three foot number they recently purchased with Horida as the objective, "When it warms up clown there", she added. It is the smaller, travel type but is complete and compact, living room, bed room, bath, kitchen and all the comforts now necessary, refrigerator, running water, plenty of closet space, etc. Her enthusiasm was dampened years ago when her husband, Howard Plait and — oli. who was Ihe third party — I can't remember — built a house and she ami her husband headed for Canada. Roads were not what they are now and they gave up tlie iilea and settled for a spot in Minnesota after struggling with bad roads a lew miles. On Sale Also At Algona Flour & Feed Co.

I was glad to get back oh the job. It is nice to know I was missed. Mrs Coughlin was 85 January 4 and two parties which she thoroughly enjoyed were given for her. Enclosed was o typed Christmas letter, a copy of which they had sent to various friends at the holiday season. Taking their activities by months, in January '55 Mr and Mrs Mertz attended a stock show at Denver, Colo.
