Tidbits Fr$m Evelyn vWhai could easily have been tragedy turned '6ut to be <a miracle when Billy Fraser, son of Mr and Mrs Clarence Fraser, was able td extricate himself from the river .last January. Billy arid Larry Klein went ice fishing in the fi\ter north of town. Billy had just found a spot he thought would yield fish when the ice broke and he was plunged into the Water,. Larry was at some distance from him when he called for help but he called to him to grab the ice. The ice failed to hold and Billy became panicky when it kept breaking off. At long last he found a place that held and by kicking his feet; he kept afloat. Fearing parental discipline and badly In need of warmth, the boys went, to ; the home of Billy's grandmother, Mrs Mary Fraser. His sister: Helen was told of the situation and 'she insisted that the lads stay there till her husband Charles Schlie- vert could take them home hi his car. i , Yes, a cure has been effected. The boys have lost their enthusiasm for ice fishing. * V. * ' The holidays were particularly happy days for the Ralph Browns, for the entire family was together, the first time in six years, Everett, a Toch Sgt; with the marines came, from Japan on a 22 day leaye. He returned to Japan and has enlisted for another term 6f six years. His wife, the former Florine Chicoine of Sioux City, a registered nurse; and the daughter Cheri, fifteen months old, make their home here. „ ; v , , Vaughan; 'with' his wife, the former Marilyn Miller, farm the home place near town.

Tom, the youngest of ,tne family, is a teen-ager. 1 ' He' has not been well of late and has been at a Fort Dodge hospital several weeks under ^reatment for colitis. He is now home* and \s t gradually improving. ' ,>.*;' . The grandfather A. Brotvn was greatly pleased when the family-called on him ?n masse ,fpr where could ' you find > a fmer group of young folk and he is proud to be "head of the family." » * * Loreen Brown has returned from the east where she spent several weeks withj her sonnfir law and daughter, Mr and;,Mrs Walter Greenwood. 1 She joined him in Chicago Sand flew, fjorri there to Boston.*? I 'The Grejeni woods live at Marblehead, nof from Boston. She also made trip home via plane to Chicago, They also went to New York City for a "fling" 'and they attended the Qary Moore and Arthur Godfrey shows, had lunch at at Rockefeller Center restaurant where they could view the skaters and saw "Oklahc-rna". At Marblehead, Loreen saw the original picture "Spirit of 1776" which hangs in the City Hall. The east is rich in historical things, a, wonderful place to visit, * * ( * I don't think I have a mean disposition but it's kinda comforting to know there's only ONE paradise, and it isn't Phoenix nor points in California, tourists to .those places With their glowing reports 'notwithstanding. ,, Which Is oy way of introduction'to this story" abbut Mr;and Mrs Ben .Wibb'ert.' .-They are just back from .Pho'enix, having gone with their 'niece and her husband, Mr and Mrs, Richard. Gross of Lone Rock, to • help them move and get settled in the'new home. Mr Gross is to' be employed with the Livingston Tool company, a branch of (the Algona company. Contrary to all conceptions of the place, it was cold at Phoenix and there Was even a little snow. At AmarillO) Tex,-, ; they were snowed in a-few days. Whoops! Not that I; rejoice- in it except it makes my "hibernating" less disagreeable. While in Phoenix Mr and Mrl' Wibben- saw "exiles" the Chubb, Don and Maynard Guderian families. Mrs Gross is a daughter of Mr and Mrs Nels Godfredsort, well known Kossuth county residents. * * * Another person who is going into, f "exile" is Mrs Edward Boy|, ce, the former Ruby Turnerj daughter of Mr and Mrs Floyd Turner. Her husband has been in Toronto, Can'.,* several months, a trial to see how he liked the location and his -job with. an insurance company. Haying decided to stay, his wife, with the assistance of her sister Marjorie Apple, packed the household goods and Mrs; Boyce left via car a few days '.ago to join, her husband. • She phoned her parents from Dubuque that everything was O.K. so far and she would wire from Detroit. * * * NOW I KNOW spring is on the way ; for the Carvers, <even at this early date, ;are planning their vaqation. They nave a trailer house that is.just burning with desire.- to 'get' on the highways, and the Carvers are burning too. The first test of actually living in -it will come during the Easter vacation. They are going to visit relatives four days and while I didh!t ! ask, I took for granted the hbUse'.may be/small and "the Carvers', and their hosts will find it more convenient to have the por- believe she said, Officers School. KEEP YOUR This will be a ten weeks course and the "traliei?" will be a wonderful place for the family. The older son Cfaig wifl be with his grandparents which Will relieve the congestion and the family will be 'reduced to only three members, "Papa Bear, Mama Bear and the Little Bear." ".-','. * * * : '' I I ithlnk when George Bernard Shaw said "Cooperate with the inevitable,", he must have had arthritis in mind. I've .learned to live with it but I sure will never learn to LIKE it. .* ' * * Mrs Leroy Crapser doesn't keep track of her husband as she:should, but at any rate she knew he and her son-in-law Ellis Mains' drove nearly 300 miles (round trip) Sunday to do some fishing. It was worth the trip for they came back with 50 perch. Whenever I think of perch..! am reminded of the Pres* byterian hospital in Chicago where I spent nine weeks once Upon fa time. EVERY Friday we were- served perch and spinach. And every Friday I'd have to ask for a little vinegar for my spinach. And every time the maid would have that astonished look that I'd want vinegar." .' . * * » ,. Another card from Hazel Miller - who is vacationing at Brownsville, Tex., again mentions tha fine weather and the good time they are having. MaHe Hawcott, Bess Hopkins and Lee Hopkins are back at Duarte, Cal., ih one ,'of the George. Bosweil motel units. They have Mr and Mrs Herman Hauberg and the letter's sister, Gladys Mahana for neighbors in the motel, and the Ed Genrich family are just over the fence with their trailer court. Just like "old home" week. The Hopkins and Marie had been at Glendale with their sister-in-law, Mrs, Fay Hopkins, , • • ,. • ..,,# but the "smog" was too much for them.
