na (la.) Upper Oes Molnes Tuesday, April 24, 1956 frdbifl From Evelyn We had a sort of style show here the other evenihg. Lizzie Post; Was here 'and When' Mrs Gilles canje in with a dress she had kept as a riiemento, Lizzie did some modeling. It wtvs a pretty frock, black brocaded silk with over blouse of shadow lace. The younger generation won't know What I am talking about, but I cdn assure them it is lovely, both the silk and lace. « * * Ingrid Fassbettder was twelve years old Saturday, April 14, and had several friends as guests. A year ago she was on the ocean .enroute here with her family from Germany. And a most disagreeable day it was, tor she was a very sea sick little girl. Along came one of the stewardesses, swooped up the gifts and dumped them wherever ship's "junk" is dumped—not realizing it was gifts she was making away with. I'd have thought a really smart stewardess would have recognized .gift packages from "junk." She should have been suedI * * * This parly was "German" style, three birthday cakes; the guests ate soon upon arrival, went to the show, came home and opened the gifts, than ate again. I remark- ed "Oh, what that does to one's "f igger", but the person' to .whom 1 made the remark said, "Little girls at that« age don't think nor worry about calories and figures." A delightful age. * * * ; '-. Remember yews ago wheft papers arid magazines carried ads for "Gold Dust" and the. "Gold Dust Twins" were two little colored boys? Mother always "used it and, thought there was no soap powder that could equal it. It still stands tops in the esti» mation of Albert ttagg, but he has great difficulty in getting it. Stores do not handle it anymore. After a search of every store in Algona, with no results, his helper finally found some in Bode and bought the only three packages the store had. Now this is a good ad for "Gold Dust" and stores should begin getting a'sup- ply. Albert says it is the only detergent that thoroughly cleans chamois skins he uses in hm work. >- • •«. ,*"•' * \ A Isn't'Often a fywt yea* old has h person-to-perston long dis* tance call. Messages are usually relayed'by fond relatives through parents* Such is not the case with Debbie Will, daughter of Mr and Mrs James Will, who celebrated her fourth birthday Wednesday, She is a good little phone answerer when mother is busy ahd can take care of the call' till mother can get there. Wednesday she answered the phone and when her mother tried to take over, Debbie protested it was for HER—which proved to be the case, for "Operator" informed Mrs Will, it was a person to person call for Deborah Will.
