6~Algona (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, February 28, 1956 Tidbits From Evelyn I've had some interesting mail 1his week which 1 will share with you, all cards picturing the charms of various places. One from Rose Potter (Mrs Charles) who is visiting her son-in-la\\ and daughter. Mr and Mrs Orrie Norstadt in Riverside. Calif., shows luscious fruit and orange blossoms on the same tree. It may sound odd to some folkj-. but it is true, as anyone who has- been to California can testify. ripened oranges and the blossoms are often on the trees together. Mother always said that was UK thing that impressed her most 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 but the day she wrote it looked liki rain. She added "we had a slight earthquake Thursday, my first experience. It only lasted a few seconds." * » » A card from the Longs also mentioned the quake and Blanche said ''Here we are rockint , and rolling with old mothe^ Earth. Sure is a queer sensation but people come and go as if if was perfectly normal." The Longs were at San Diego and possibly the 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.

Nita Randall, a sister probably, and 1 believe there was a Mr Randall, the father no doubt, who was a Kossuth county official, clerk, I believe, a number of years ago. "We have done this town, even the zoo and spent one day m Mexico. Had a 20 mile bout ride. Didn't know there were so many battleships, car riers and subs." * * * Mabel Livingston sen! a card from Yuma, Am., \vhich pictured the famous "drive-in" chapel. It is the only "drive-in" chapel in the United States and the pastoi is Charles A. Cady, a non-denominational minister. She asked him if I was a relative but he said he came from Georgia. Well he COULD be a relative. Grand father Cady had a brother Charles, a doctor in Chicago. This might be a descendant—who knows? * * » The card from Haiel Miller made me want to jpack up and : ,'o to south immediately. The palm treed highway looked sc inviting and a glimpse of watei at one side looked intriguing too And the weather was nice after a few days of chill. The letter from .ielen Turnbull, dietician at Park hospital, Mason City, contained a recipe I am going to pass on. It sounds delicious. One small carton of frozen strawberries—one box of strawberry jello mixed with one cup hot water—(cool jello and water before mixing with berries) Only one cup of water is necessary as the juice of the berries makes it the right consistency and it cools quickly. Add one-half pint of whipped cream. Cut cake cross*—Angel Food—Fill and place top back on. Then frost the cake. Keep <in refrigerator. Doesn't that sound yummy? • ' * * * . Adrian Casler returned Thursday night from Palmetto, Fla., where he had been vacationing the ;past few months. That he was a bit homesick and anxious to reach Algona is evidenced by his driving 700 miles that day to reach the homestead. Of course it was a wonderful vacation, but home and relatives beat anything Florida or the other forty-six states has to offer. (Including Hawaii and Alaska). * * * Amy Geering and Lizzie Post WE HAVE THE GENUINE LONO ll]aM£-~ : 'T&Qua/tw: &2%r : WINDOWMATERIALS W^OW^ATimALS 5E5T^SS r l (•Mtl BSowjsswtf"*-":; .«.•*:'»: . ~ *«•»'*• •IANOI9 ON THI FLEX-O-GLASS GLASS-O-NET 31 PLASTIGLASS )WYRO-GlASS >CREEN-GLASS HAMS F. S. NORTON & SON didn't got homo from Knnsas ns soon as had bwn reported. A triick 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 have been inconvenient to drag luggage to a hotel, or wait till the relatives came to get thorn. So they got home Monday, Feb. 20 Am\v had been at Clenrwater 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 Topoka 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 Hou- •iton and stopped at Wichita en- roule homo. When I suggested the diner she seemed reluctant I couldn't understand why, for I had been to the diner on othci trips years ago and managed ?oing through the coaches t< •each it in fine shape. Havinp reached the diner and finished 'he meal I asked her what caused her apparent alarm. Would ••ou believe? She had forgotten that the coaches are completely md securely enclosed in the area between them. She had visions of me being swept out of Hie sides and she was so fear ful of losing me. * * «• Little SleVen Carroll has begun traveling at an early age. He is only a few weeks old but last week his "momma" and "poppa" took him to Des Moines to visit the paternal grandparents, Mr and Mrs Frank Carroll. Of course, in heated c.irs and smooth riding vehicles it is quite like being at home in his own bas- sinette. * • * How easy il is lo get inlo "plush" habits and it's so easy to take. Take for instance breakfast served in one's hotel room. That's what Jean Hemmingsen did when she was in Des Moines recently arid that's what Lizzie Post 'and 1 I did the first morning we were iji Houston last May. After the .trays had been left, Lizzie said, "I should have hopped in -bed—Just think of having breakfast in bed and not being sick." « * * Lois Caldwell got tired of sitting 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 the 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. Bestenlehner 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 the promise. Little Maureen, not to be out done by her older sister, said, "Me feep" and she too did a fine job. She used the vacuum cleaner to "feep."

Farmers Cooperative Elevator Co., Swea City. West Bend Elevator Co., West Bend 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 Philadelphia 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 Ducal 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 last week at Grundy Center. Zender and Caldwell have closed their stock at that place, but stijl have fixtures and other matters to look after. The J. C. Penney Company will occupy the storeroom which they had. Every day is laundry day, says Mrs Ray Bails of Stanwood. She does about 25 machine loads each week. She's the mother of 14 children.

And we.think this action is so exciting, you ought to come in for a sampling before another sun sets. 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 factor— the most thrilling safety measure on the American scene today. When 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 all this is at only part throttle, your gas mileage goes up substantially. J. hen comes the next trigger—when you need all- put acceleration for an emergency safety-surge.

Surely you owe yourself the treat, the twin thrills, the deep satisfaction and just the sheer fun hours that go with driving the best Buick yet.
