Tidbits From Evelyn What could easily have been tragedy turned out -to be a miracle when Billy Fraser, son of Mr arid Mrs,Clarence Fraser, was able to extricate, himself from the river last' January. Billy arid Larry Klein went ice fishing in the river north o^ town. Billy had jusf 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 heed of warmth, the boys went to the home of Billy's grandmother, Mrs Mary Fraser. His sister Helen was told of the situation and ishe insisted that the lads stay there till her husband Charles Sehlie- vert could take them home in his car. Yes,, a cure has been effected. The boys have lost their enthusiasm for ice fishing. « * * The holidays were particular ly happy days for the Ralph Browns, for the entire family was together, the first time in six years. Everett, a Tech Sgt. with the marines came from Japan on a 22 day Ieav0. He returned to Japan and has enlisted for another termi of six years. His wife, the former Plorine Chicoine of Sioux City, a registered nurse, and the daughter Cheri, fifteen months old, make their home here. ...... Vaughan, with his wife, the former Marilyn Miller, farm the home place near town. Don is'a sergeant and,, army cook stationed at ForLKhbx, Ky. He leaves in May lor a 1 three year period to be spent in Germany. Harriet, now Mrs Ronald Peterson, received her discharge as Sgt. in the Women's Marine Corps just prior to her marriage. She and her husband live here. Tom, the youngest of the family, is a teen-ager. He has not been well of late and has been at a Fort Dodge hospital several weeks under treatment for colitis. He is now home and is .-gradually improving. • , ' ;-. The grandfather A.' Brown was greatly pleased when the family called on him en ntasse lor where could ^you find a finer 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 with her soh-in- law and daughter,»Mr and Mis Walter Greenwood. : She Joined. him in Chicago and flew from there to Boston. • The Green' woods live at Marblehead, not Jar * from Boston. She also They also went to New York City fof • a "fling" and they attended the Gary Moore and Arthur Godfrey shows, had lunch at at Rockefeller Center restaurant where they could view the skaters and saw "Oklahoma". At Marblehead, Loreen saw the original picture "Spirit of 1776" Which ha'hgs in the" City Hall. The east is rich in historical things, a wonderful place to visit. * * * I don't think I hare a mean disposition but it's kieda 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 by Way of Introduction to this story This will be a ten weeks course and the "trailer" will be a wpn- defful plat* for the family, fhfe older soft Craig win b* with hte grandparents which will relieve the congestion and the family will be reduced to only three members, "Papa Bear, Mama Bear and the Little Bear." * * * f think when George Bernard Shaw said "Cooperate with the inevitable," he must have Tiad arthritis in mind. I've learned but the "smog" was too much tot them. » "» » 'i " Ja«k AlleA and hi* fttrMtrl, Mf and Mrs James Allen are counting the days till he gets home from' Fort Riley, Kan. He will receive his discharge March 15 aftd will probably head for home like a "homing pigeon." 1 • wonde* what my would have thought had'they looked in on me the other eVB to live with it but 1 sure will ning. 1 was practically buried ' n "Tidbits". I've done the column, oh about seven years 1 think, and have never put them Crapset doesn't her husband as about Mr and Mrs Ben They are just back Phoenix, haying gone with their 1 ,*nie;ce and her husband, Mr and Mrs' Richard Gross of Lone Rock, to help th'em 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 'f, rejoice in it except it makes my "hibernating" less disagreeable,. While in Phoenix Mr and MM Wibben saw "exiles" the Chubb, Don and Maynard Guderian families. Mrs Gross is a daughter of Mr and Mrs Nels Godfredson, well known Kossuth county residents. 0 * * Another person who is going into' "exile" is'Mrs Edward Boy* ce, the former Ruby Turnerl daughter of Mr and Mrs Floy'd 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. Having decided to stay, his wife, with the as ; sistance of her sister Marjorie Apple, packed ;the household goods and .Mrs Boyce left via car a few days ago to join her husband. 1 She phoned her parents frdm Dubuque that everything was O.K. so far and she would wire from Detroit. 0 * * NOW I KNOW spring is on the \yay- for the Garver.s, even at this early, date, are planning their vacation. They have 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 yisit relatives four days and while I didn't ask, I took for granted the may be small and the Carvers and t . their hosts will find it more, convenient to have the portable "guest house." Later, during Uhe- summer. .Mr Carver' will - '—" SiHSORTfc- attending, 1 never learn to LIKE it. * * * Mts Lefoy keep track of 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, 1 am reminded of the Presbyterian hospital in Chicago Where I spent nine weeks once upon a time. EVERY Friday we We're 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. Marie Hawcottr Bess Hopkins and Lee Hopkins are back at Duarte, Cal., in one of the George Boswell rriotel 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 oyei the fence with their trailer court. Just like "old home week. The Hopkins and Marie K&d been at Glendale with their sister-in-law, Mrs Fay Hopkins n order.. I was almost smothet ed in newspaper clippings and am hoping to somehow get ordtir out of chaos. Right now it looks pretty hopeless. Besides that there is an accumulation of about Len years of items for my ordirt- 1 ary scrap book. The "Tidbits" is one all by itself, or. will be when I get organized. • • * Mr and Mis Tom Vethuel h**e returned from a vacation in Texas. Bull fights may be all right for the Mexicans and the Spaniards, but the Verhuels, after two rounds of it left with turned over stomachs and general nausea. The Verhuels enjoyed Charros days—sort of a duplicate of the New Orleans Mardi Gras but possibly not quite so elaborate. And as usual, the "small world" was shown u(p again. This time it was Mr and Mrs Guy Kemerling they saw at' Helinger. Mrs Kemerling was Lois Inman, a bookkeeper here at the Algona creamery quite a few years ago. She and Helen Trauger were very good friends. * • • Mary Ellen Kelley and I have a few things in common. First we are females, next we are columnists, and the third bond is we both had arthritis. I've been cian and scientist. • ntending tb write her for some ime and my intentions have beer, atf«n|th<htd Alnce Hading ier column oh Grace Kelly - *rince Ranier in the Marcus Dftper. Come tb think of it, we lave a fourth common interest-^ we are IRISH. How could 1 have overlooked that? * * * Miss Kelley wrdie aa interest' ing column and cb'tild give first hand impressions fof she Spent a day in Monacb while in Europe. She writes, "1 can't, picture an American girl being ' very comfortable in that rambling old royal house with its attending guards and endless. stream o! tourists." The rest bf the article Was descriptive and interesting • • • ' In the meantime let's go back to Algona in 1909—Patrons of the Central school building will be pleased to know that Miss Carrie Durant 5s to have charge of a room there next year. Miss Durant has shown great ability as an instructor and our people are glad to have her return to work.
