Z-Alfl6rtci (id.) Upper Des Molnes Tuesday, April 10, 1956 Tidbits A certain man, a relative, ,was- talking to my hqUsekeep"etjJ Esther, recently and said, "I'd have called you early but I was ftfraid I'd,' disturb—oh, "Tidbits." What is her name?" That gave me a good laugh,.and I was highly gratified that the column title is remembered, ,'»'•'.*•*" - «• , I was also gratified and amused nt the "antics of'Danriy' Kay'e itl "The Court Jester." That is the kind of show I like. Somethin: to tickle one's funny bone ani ' you leave the theater light hearted and gay. • Wish we had more of thai type to place bf the shoot* 'em-uf> variety. : *, '•'» Esther just brought in a handful of hickory riUts she brought from Minnesota some .tihi^ ago They look like bitter nuts; These came ; from Kentucky, old home of her late husband, Erby Benson, who she says used to say "This proves that things can be grown in Kentucky." What has become of hazelnuts? 1 remember years ago when I was about eight or ten years old rnother,had a quart jar Of nut meats sho had shelled. • $h> -keptx -them I on ;the prantry'Shilf -and "every now and ;hen we'd hav;e a treat from the ' • <.,'( . * * A little fellow, a five year old I talked 'With by. phone the other day i.kept, me entertained till his mother could take the line. He told me about his cat, Mitzie, and the 'kfttens she had, The talk became a little involved "but knew 'he 'had heard about the birds and * bees, young 'as he is for he, 'informed me, old enough to be his grandmother, that Mitzie -could ' have kittens. "Papi cats crfn't have them, you know It's only rtama cats that do.' (Lesson mlmber 1.) • » * * .Krisiie Weyderl comes to stay With her grandparents, Mr and Mrs Chris Wallukait, frequently and finds so much entertainment here— So many little play mates among them R i c k i e Post. Everyone gets the wanderlust on a nice s'p'ring day, anc tots are no exception.

Kristie is a friendly little girl and when she saw .John Mahoney talking through a device he uses since major throat surgery some time ago, she asked him, "Why don't you call me on your telephone some time?" *• * * There was quiie a mix-up between the local Oliver Bakkens and the Walter Bakkens at Bode. a few Sundays ago. • The Oliver Bakkens drove to Bode to visit the Walter Bakkens and the Bode Bakkens drove here. They, finally got together here when the Bode couple saw the Algona car parked in front of. the Wayne Hansen residence, the Hansens being son-in-law and daughter of Mr and Mrs Oliver Bakken. * * * How would you like io have a vacation like Mr and Mrs Don Orion plan? They teach at Grants Pass, Idaho, I believe. • At any rate it's in the west. Early in June they are leaving, with the children Michael and Connie, for London, England to visit Mrs Orion's parents. Eileen has been back a couple of times, but a family vacation is much nicer. The parents, Mr and Mrs Osbourne made the trip here a few years ago. Since the grandparents are aging, Mr and Mrs Orton considered it advisable to make the trip themselves and 'take the grandchildren. Don has not been in England since he was in service during the war and married Eileen there.' / IS S * This is Ihe time of year when housewives are all alwiller. With clean up time and remodeling time it's no wonder Mrs Briggs (Bernard) was at a loss for a news item. She replied, "We are adding to the house and I'm so mixed up and in such a mess I can't even think." » * » The Eafl Sheppards had a bang up Easter dinner — 37 guests. They have a'nice basement room ;o Use as dining room for these ianl dinners, a blessing as every housewife, knows. ' :.t ' 1(1 IS The Garden Club at a recent meeting discussed "A Spot in Algona I'd Like to See Beautified." E-Iow many can you think of? First of all I'd like to see the old Call theatre site either filled in and used for parking, or bolter, a nice business building erected there. What business I don't know—but it would b-j a wonderful improvement to that portion, of the'dty} -. '•'•'-•:• * '•' ••_' * - * « Then there are; some businesses that have a collection of clutter on the parking and around the building—unsightly too, and they disturb my housewifely instincts. order and cleanliness. And why not keep the side, walks free of gravel. Why put the gravel there in the first place? A cement border around the building which 'would be easily kept neat and clo'in. wouldn't have bean too expensive and certainly far more attractive and sanitary. Some qf the e!ay hills north of town left staik and hideous certainly could bj covered with grass, vines, or low growing shrubs. The beauty of the plac-j was v.'i'C'cked years ago with the first changing of the hill, but from time tn time as work has- been ilolii: there, the hill:; have been made more ugly.

"Shorlie" Lowe and I skipped schodl one afternoon too. Miss Coate rather prided herself that she knew all that was going on. But I took the .wind out of her sails many years later when -I gave her an .account of it, I couldn't get away from the feeling as I told her that I'd'reap some .punishment at her hands. She ruled me completely for four years and habit Was strong. None will ever take her place. ' ' ~ * .- a * My mother has told me of some skipping she did too. "Twas county fair time and. how awful it was when the fair was held in September years ago and one had to be in school when there was such allurement at the fair grounds. So mother and some of her friends decided to do something about it. Armed With a little spending money thev had vSomehow hoarded, they went to the scene of-forbidden delights. Not wanting to waste any .precious coins on entrance fees, they went down by the barns.-At that time animals were kept under tents. Choosing a place whei;e the canvas of a concealing fence was loose, they rolled under and much to mother's amazement, she was but a, few inches from the, •hooves of a horse. Had the animal been frightened or of a. bad disposition, another would have come out on the losing end. * • * « The story I remembered best of my father's misdemeanors is this. Since it involved only the family, I guess it isn't too great a. crime. He and his brother Willis, (Pat to everyone who' knew him after he came to Algona.) decided the cat had too long a tail. Dad was about tlirea years younger than uncle Willi % s and no doubt had the small' boy's faith that older brother could do anything (and usually does.) Dad was to hold the yat while uncle Willis bobbed thfc tail. It was a very thankful cat that escaped when grandma appeared upon the scene, rescued her butcher IcnifD and told • the lads there would b.e no surgery that day—01 ahy other. , KILLED Ernest Dinsmore, 69, Logan farmer, was killed recently, as a tractor he was operating tipped over backward on him. , He .was drjving;, the machine up aar incline,!« -.-,.,.'
