cWAIgena (Id.) Upper Des Molnes Tuesday, February 28, 1956 Tidbits From Evelyn I've had some interesting mai this Week Which I will share wit: you, all cards picturing th charms of various places. On from Rose Potter (Mrs Charles who is visiting her son-in-lay and daughter, Mr and Mrs Orri Norstadt in Riverside, Calil shows luscious fruit and oran§ blossoms on the same tree. 1 may sound odd to some folk but it is true, as anyone who ha been to California can testify ripened oranges and the blossom are often on the trees togethei Mother always said that was th thing that impressed her mos plus the beauty of the combina tion. Better yet to me was the fragrance.. Mrs Potter said the grass and shrubs are so green, the weather had been perfect bu the day she wrote it looked lik rain. She added "we had a sligh earthquake Thursday, my firs experience. It only lasted a few seconds." i • * * • A card from the Longs also mentioned the quake and Blan che said "Here we are rocking ahd rolling with old mothei Earth. Sure is a queer sensation blit people come and/go asiif it •was .perfectly normal." The Longs Were at San Diego and possibly trie tremor Was'greater there than at Riverside.) Ab had a nice visit with John Byson and Mrs Percy Ball who will be remembered by the older Algonans as Eva Randall. Mr Ball has been deceased nine years. I remember RUSCQ .WINDOWS SALVANIZED STEEL SELF- STORING COMBINATION; gives you-more convenience and comfort .than any other combination window I ., •' : .

Dodge, Algona Nita Randall, a sister probably and 1 believe there was a M Randall, the father no doubt, wh was a Kossuth county officfa clerk, 1 believe, a number o years ago. "We have done thi town, even the zoo und spent on day in Mexico. Had a 20 mil boat ride. Didn't know ther were so many battleships, car riers and subs." • * * • Mabel Livingston sent a car from Yuma, Ariz., which picturei the famous "drive-in" chapel. I is the only "drive-in" chapel i the United States and the pasto is Charles A. Cady, a non-denom inational minister. She asked him if I was a relative but h said he came from Georgia. Well he COULD be a relative. Grand father Cady had a brother Char les, a doctor in Chicago. This, might be . a descendant—who knows? * * * The card &om Hazel Miller made me want to pack up and «o to south' immediately. The palm treed highway looked sc nviting and a glimpse of water at one side looked intriguing too And the weather was nice after a 'ew days of chill. The letter from •lelen Turnbull, dietician at Park lospital, Mason .City, contained a ecipe I am going to pass on. It ounds delicious. One small ear- on of frozen strawberries—one box of strawberry jello mixed »vith one cup hot water—(cool ello and water 'before mixing ivith berries) Only one cup of vater is necessary as the juice of he berries makes it the right onsistency and it cools quickly. Add one-half pint of whipped ream. Cut cake cross—Angel •"ood—Fill and place top back on. n hen frost the caked Keep in efrigerator. Doesn't that sound ummy? * * » Adrian Casler returned Thursay night from Palmetto, Fla., here he had been vacationing ic past few months. That he as a bit homesick and anxious o reach Algona is evidenced by is driving 700 miles that day to each the homestead. Of course was a wonderful vacation, but ome and relatives beat anything lorida or the other forty-six ;ates has to offer. (Including iawaii and Alaska). • * ' * Amy Gearing and Lizzie Post WE HAVE THE GENUINE LONG - - 7/Jatifl& TbpQuaitty ;; ^^WlNDOVVM^ERIALS WlNDC ^SrJsaS »«..n> •/•<•""«""•_ tf&jgs ^r .. ...lA,-:. ®s*w*® tf f VWI7 ^ [24* 3lf r SK 5SW .w»" ^pT;- 7^-: mffi ,J-^3T\^n «.

A truck had been hit and the train was held up nine hours. When they learned that, they decided to stay over Sunday as they would have reached Mason City so late at night it would haVfe been inconvenieht to drag luggage to a hotel, or wait till the relatives came to get them. So they got home Monday, Feb. 20, Amly had been- at Qearwaiter with her son-in-law and daughter, the Rev. and Mrs Everett Black, to whom a daughter was born a few weeks ago. Lizzie was at Topeka with her son and daughter-in-law, Mr and Mrs Bob Post. Lizzie got to the diner this time unbeset by fears. The last time she was on that train was with me when we went to Houston and stopped at Wichita en- route home. When I suggested the diner she seemed reluctant, [ couldn't understand why, for ! had been to the diner on othei trips years ago and managed joing through the coaches tc •each it in fine shape. Having reached the diner and finishet the meal I asked her what caused her apparent alarm. Would you believe? She had forgotten that the coaches are completely and securely enclosed in the area between them. She had visions of me being swept out of the sides and she was so fearful of losing me. * * * Liitle Steven Carroll has begun ;raveling at an early age. He is only a few weeks old but last week his "momma" and "poppa" :ook him to Des Moines to visit he paternal grandparents, Mr and Mrs Frank Carroll. Of course, in heated cars and smooth •iding vehicles it is quite like >eing at home in his own bas- inette. * * * • How easy il is lo get into 'plush" habits and it's so easy to ake. Take for instance break- ast served in one's hotel room, 'hat's what Jean Hemmingsen id when she was in Des Moines ecently and that's ; what Lizzie .and I did the first, morning ve were in Houston last May. Vfter the trays .had been left, •izzie said, "I should have hop_ ed in bed—Just think of having breakfast in bed and 1 not being sick." * * * Lois Caldwell got iiied of sitting 1 around and doing lots of wishful thinking-thinking of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs R. N. Brenton and granddaughter Barbara, so she flung a few garments in her suit case, grabbed up her purse and away she went .for visit of a week with them at Union City, Ind. She said she never saw such an ice and sleet storm as was raging from Chicago to Indiana. * * * " I saw a letter ihe other day with the letters S.W.A.K. on the back, which translated, as everybody knows is "Sealed With A Kiss." Down, boy, doWnl- It wasn't my letter, it was from a lad to his mother, a boy in service, bless his heart. * * * Mary T. Besienlehner burned her hand quite badly a few weeks ago and the injured member has to be kept out of water awhile. Now it seems to me that two-thirds of a housewife's time is spent with her hands in dish water. The little daughter Kathleen came to the rescue and said, "Don't worry, mother, I'll do the dishes", and she made good on March!

Schiltz suffered'a light heart attack while attend^ ng Mass at St. John's- Church I liked Mary Ellen Kelly's item on Monaco so much I am quoting portions I think you too will like —"Monte Carlo, Monaco's only city, is a far cry from the atmosphere of Hollywood and Phila^ delphia where, the. star (Grace Kelly) has lived. ' But Cannes and Nice, society's .entertainment paradise, aren't too far away for a shopping 'spree/' The trip to Monte Carlo she described as "Pirouetting around the mountains at a dizzy height was the ancient Roman road which disclosed a thrill, at every turn Monte Carlo, capital of the principality of Monaco, is a city of 30,000 residents. It has a unique air somewhat like that of a stolid provincial uncle who frowns on chewing gum but operates a wheel of fortune on the basis that "business is business," At the world-famed Casino, housed in the city's largest building, 3,000 are employed. These men are tax-free, reserved and shrewd. From one generation to another their profession is handed down, and hardly ever is an outsider accepted for employment. Shops bordering the narrow streets showed the best of china, leather goods, silver and wearing apparel. Large signs urged tourists to "Buvez Coca-Cola" and Suicide Park, an alleged refuge of unlucky gamblers, offered a grim warning to tourists with well-padded wallets. Two special attractions were the Rock of Monaco with it's Dueai Palace and nearby, the world's largest sea museum. We returned to Nice on the shore route—past spacious villas including the retired novelist Somerset Maugham's, sleek cabin cruisers and yachts, no longer effective German road blocks and the world's oldest olive tree. To our left was the crowning scene of all the Mediterranean." • * • Well, we've had a trip aboard, now let's get back to Algona in 1929—Mrs Latham and family, of Kansas City are expected here for the jubilee and will visit at the home of her father Joe Bieser. Mrs Latham has been away from Algona the past 30 years. Attorney and Mrs J. L. Bonai were visitors at the Horst cottage at Okoboji Saturday and Sunday, and attended the lawyers' chautauqua which was being held there. Mrs Anne Paine returned to Algona with them and will spend a week at the Bonar home. (Mrs Horst was a sister of Mrs Paine. Both were Rausch girls) Mr and Mrs Robert Caldwell spent several days la^st week at Grundy Center.

For Buick's new Variable Pitch Dynaflow is more than just the smoothest, the sweetest, the most responsive transmission yet developed. It's quick and it's nimble — it's a gas-saver and a great safety f actor— the most thrilling safety measure on the American scene today, \Vhen we say twin-triggered, we mean just that, You move the first trigger the moment you press the gas pedal no more than an inch, That nudge taps a fraction of the mighty power in Buick's big 322-cubic-inch V8 engine. That nudge gives you quick new getaway response. That nudge brings you all the power and snap and performance you need for normal driving and cruising. And since att this is at only part throttle, your gas mileage goes up substantially. Then comes the next trigger—when you need all" put acceleration for an emergency safety-surge.
