2-Alsoha (la.) Upper Dot Motnes Tuesday, February 7, 1956 Tidbits From fve/yn Mr and Mrs Ralph Donovan and 'the'.''former's father Robert Donovan have returned from California where they visited Mr and Mrs Ben Knoll at Santa Ana, . ahd others. Lydia and I were dyed in the wool-California admirers some eight or ten years ago and it was hard for us to see 'anything good in Iowa. I gradually got a better perspective and when I talked with Lydia the other day I asked, "And how does California look to you now?" to Svhich she responded, "Too many people, too hiany traffic and too much ; Smog," From which I gather! .that she; like I, has lost her adoration for the Golden State. She said she likes Mesa, Ariz. It is a town of about 7,000 and has a fine climate.' .'».- * *•••.• ' The Donovans stopped at Deming, New Mexico, to visit Mrs Nellie Galbraith, alsb went to El Paso to visit Mr and Mrs Mike Skender. Mrs Skender is the former Mildred Galbraith. With 'her they also went to Jaurez, Mex., Lydia said it .was fortunate she was along else they would have become lost in the confusion of the roads. * * * At Carlsbad Caverns one of the party remarked, "Those people look familiar", and sure enough, it was the L. E. Hpveys, who had been on a California vacation too. * * - . *Several "flying saucers" have been seen in Algona by a person whose reputation for veracity is unquestionable, none other than Borghild Robinson. Yes indeed, she has seen them at rather close range and right in her own yard, so to speak. The saucers are t new kind ot sled used on the hill near- here and they swirl and sway dizzily when the youngsters get in them and go spinning down the hill. The forerunner of these were used years ago when my mother was a youngster. She has frequently told me of the good times she and her playmates and brothers had sliding down hill in big tin pans discarded from the family kitchen, or old boiler tops with the handles removed. ' . : * » * * It was quite a thrill for Mrs adrian Sterling when she read in last Sunday's "Des Moines Register" that Mr and Mrs Lynn Richardson and Mr and Mrs Bruce Erickson were among the guests entertained at dinner by Mrs Gcorgie Mollenhoff, in Washing- ington, D. C. The women are nieces of Mrs Sterling and formerly lived at Webster City, also former home of the Mollenhoffs. Mr Richardson is vice president of the Beech aircraft and Mr Erickson -is with the secret service. "' •-.«.._;.• "J . -, • :, - - *- •>„. * * ; '' • ; , -'; Apologies 'to Larry Kueck and Perry St. John for omitting theii names from the Eighth Graders j who are going to Mason City U> put on square dances over T.V. in a few weeks. The person who gave mo the list of names overlooked them and he is as sorry as can be. And very important is the faqt the boys are going to do a specialty number, a singing cowboys act. Rcinhold Wcd- nian's name was also overlooked und you too, please forgive us. » * * It's a- strange thing thai some parts of the country get more rain than they can manage and other parts are bone dry. I had ;i talk with Mrs Hallaid Snyder the other day and I don't remember how we got to talking about moisture. She has a brother-in- law and sister, Mr and Mrs Floyd Williamson, who live on a farm near Cambria in Wayne county, the county seat of which is Corydon. For over two years the Williamsons have had to haul water from Cambria and a xai- clt-n is a thing of the past. It i.s all they ean do to yet .sufficient water f-ir household and slock u^e. And it has to be paid for, too,- no windmills or wells to fall back on.

During the absence of his wife Ardis, he has cared for the children 7, 4 and 3, The baby Tommy, 1, has been cared for by Mrs Schattschneider while Mama Ardis has been on Vacation with her brother-in-law and sister, Mr and - Mrs "Dutch" and Evelyn Winegar of Cedar Rapids. They drove to-Florida and other southern points, even Cuba, I heard, but that may be misinformation. At any rate, "Bill" Sr. has learned all about housekeeping, even to the. laundry. Papa remarked to his mother that they have been invited out a lot which helps. One day when the two youngsters were left alone for a brief period, they decided to use the phone. They, left the receiver off the hook, hence no one on the ; line could use the phone. After much persuasion they replaced the receiver and all was .well. Kenneth remarked virtuously, "I must take better care of my little brother from now on." » » « My Esther was given a gift by her niece Evelyn Van Allen Keith of Burbank, Calif. Evelyn's mother, Mrs Nellie Van Allen, brought it back with her when she returned from her vacation there. It is a watch with circles of brilliants, pearls and emeralds and has ;i holder at the top through which a ribbon can be drawn and the watch can be worn hanging around one's neck, or it can be a lapel watch. The face has brilliants at the hour marks and one in the center. It is a pretty piece of jewelry and Evelyn did the adorning. She does a lot of ceramics too. * * * Let's see what was "cooking" back in 1909 — Luster Wilson claims to lead with new potatoes this season the family had some fine ones from their garden Sunday. (June 16) Mr and Mrs Joe rloltzbauer are the happy parents of a fin" baby girf wno arrived at their home yesterday morning. (Kathleen). And arrived "at home" is probably lit- terally true, for few people went to hospitals then, especially to ;rcet the stork. Oh, the Algom lospital headed by Dr. M. J. Kenefick and Dr. E. C. Hartman was in existance ans it is possi- jle Mama Rose was there). Cashier C. T. Chubb of the Al- ;ona State Bank (now Iowa State) was in Waterloo the other day attending the state bankers' meeting. Mr ami Mrs W. A. Duton. Miss v prr (Jane) and Miss Berger ; ..left- last night for a trip o the "Seattle Exposition and a our of the west. * * « Having that bit of news about ho Duttons, I called them to sec low things were going. Mrs Duton, like I, is waiting for spring. Mr Dutton is recovering quite well from a stroke suffered a few months ago. He too is anxious for spring and' a chance to get out doors. Mrs Dutton mentioned spring house cleaning, a subject I know many women are thinking about. My house could do with a complete re-decorating iob. There are those who advise me to buy a T.V. and let the house go shabby. Shall wo take A vote?

Sexton Forsakes T-V To Enjoy Kelley's Party By The Village Gossip ' Sexian—Dragnet's rating slipped in Sexton last Thursday night: An old fashioned neighborhood party will still take people away from TV, even on a below zero night. The town gathered at the Bob Kelley home from an evening of visiting in between some heavy hands of cribbage and 500. The party ended with a self-serve lunch and flash bulbs popping. The host was [dressed up for the : occasion including his shoes this time, To comet any bad impression. Martin Mimbach did not get his black eye at the Kelley party, He came out 'the loser in an argument the next day with a big icicle hanging on his house. In case you have ever • wondered, Martin is willing to say a falling icicle dan knock a fellow out. Another mistaken impression may have been given by all the "blood" in front of Glenn Gabrielson',s place.- Dn that very .icy night last week a car went off the road there and the tractor couldn't even stay in one»place •leng enough to pull it out. Glenn had to use 2f> Ibs of red rninferal salt oh the highway before they could move. When the snow started to thaw later in the Week there was "blood" all over the road. • For such a short time at home Mr and Mrs Martin Mimbach have gotten a lot done. They spent a few days taking care of the Joe Namer hbmestead while Mr and Mrs Narner were visiting in Davenport. Mr and Mrs Mimbach came home to some baby sitting jobs and then'received company ( Mr and Mrs 'Herman Esser fro*i Minnesota. They were ready to leave for their daughter's home in Washington for a three month visit when they received word from Minnesota that Mr Mimbach's sister broke her arm. Mr and Mrs Mimbach plan to stay two weeks with her before continuing' on their journey. Spring must come a little earlier when you have a place with a grove around it. Mack Wise received his garden seeds at the store last week and Ambrose Lickteig has been wanting them opened so he can start planting About the lonesomest job in town this winter belongs to L. A. Copp. 'For a talkative kind ot fellow the days must be pretty long when he can't slow anyone down long' enough to visit on these cold windy days. GAS-TOONS KEN & LEO'S "Never mind, Leo . ,. .
