When I was" at Mlaon City recently Jean* ,y>hb ;teacnes music at the college 1h, Batott .Rouge, La.,'Said "1 have a< message— gfeetirigs to you from Oscar Rbsewall; When he Was introduced to me and learned I was a iCady he asked me If 1 was any relation to' Evelyn Cady, of Al- g6na." The .attswer being in the affirmative, he gave' her a "Hello" for .trie. I knew Oscar and his brother. Hjalmar, "Katz" W'ay back when we were in high school together. *. *'.-'*'.''-.'. I called Mrs Anna Madson for news the other day and fbr the flfst time didn't hear canaries singing merrily. I asked her "How come." She replied they had 'sung their songs earlier in th^ morning, were now having their siesta and Would begin again ardund noon. She has five little ones a week old today (April 21) and more on the way. She says it is interesting to watch the birds and because of their songs, likes them better than parakeets. So do I, cute as they are. * * « Mrs Frank Mescher of. Bancroft; was given a birthday dinner ivelyn a week ago Sunday at the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs John Giseh. She Was made happy by a phone dall frOnY her daughter, Mrs Wallace Johnson, of Hagerstown, Md., ne6 Dorothy Mescher.

Her gift from him and his wife, Sally, daughter of Mr' and Mrs Briggs, was an electric aoffee percolator. * * * Mr and Mrs Hallard Snyder recently joined Mr and Mrs Jack Whitehead, of Los Angeles, Calif, at Mr and Mrs Cliff Witwicki's in Cedar Rapids for a weekend visit.

IT PAYS TO This is a "dry" spring — and many farmers are delaying their fertilizer program this year "until we get rain." THIS IS A MISTAKE! Fertilizer applied NOW is your best hedge against loss in yield during a dry growing season — regardless of whether or not you have moisture at this time. Actgal records prove it. Here are the Facts: In 1955, a test at Iowa State College showed the following results; Corn (no fertil|*et) 43.8 bu. per acre Com (40 Ibs, Nitrogen) 73.8 bu. per acre Corn (80 Ibs. Nitrogen) .83,3 bu. per acre Ih 1953, alsp a dfy year, farmers who fertilized were able to get 60-bushel yields. Farmers who did not fertilize often had to settle for as little as 20 bushels acre. • CUT YOUR FERTILIZER COSTS I Buy From Your Eagle Grove Plant!

They spent the • holiday weekend ' at Chicago, putting up at the Allerton. hotel which .is nicely Ibcated out of the loop and only tt block or tw6 frtm Lake Michigan., Among the interesting places 'they visited were Field Museum, .the Aquarium, Science and Industry building and Brookfield Zoo, Near the hotel they took the subway and in the 2400 block came to the surface and the elevated near Fullerton, all very interesting, especially to the children, who, Mrs Martin said, "Behaved beautifully the entire time." They went to Morrison, 111., and there met Mr and Mrs Allen Slickers and family who were visiting Mrs Slicker's mother and father. The Slickers formerly lived here and Mr Slickers was on the school faculty. At Diokens, 111., they visited friends to whom a new baby had. been recently born. * * ' * I had such a nice letter from Lela Stewart the other day and this portion of it will be of interest I am sure, especially to Will Rogers admirers, and I was one of them. Lela has recently been in Los Angeles visiting her daughter Helen and family. On a ride one Sunday they went to the Will Rogers state park and this is what she said about it. ' "I had been there times before but never "went back in there to see his old home and stables. The park is open daily and the road is quKe winding' back to the buildings. In 1922 Rogers bought the property and built a small weekend cottage, there but in 1929 the buildings. Were enlarged to 18 rooms. The living &>om is a 'huge, long room with a porch swing hung in the middle of itr There ar.e many -Indian rugS; baskets, ; saddles, etc in it besides a mounted calf which provided a target for his roping in the house. The 1U brary is especially attractive and also the patio where they often dined with their three children; There is a stairway leading up to his study where his old typewriter is that he used to write his daily newspaper columns. The stables, corrals and riding rings and roping: arena are about 200 yards from, his house and there are many riding trails through the surrounding hills. A lot of horses are still there and people were riding them. Two of his prize horses $ere buried out in front of, the stabler,, with stones and' the names, age and year they I plan lo see "The Student Prince" and of course it -Will be a lovely picture — in technicolor but how I'd like to see the old one irt black and white done by Wallace Reid years ago, What a handsome chap he was and I can still see him in a white uniform, ^yards and yards of gold braid trim, sitting in front of a fireplace—dreaming of his lady loye I suppose. The rest of the picture has faded from memory. Poor "Wally" died many years ago, a victim of "dope" so it was said^ He was one of the screen's best beloved— along with Valentino. I'd like to see "The Shiek" again too. . « * » Several weel^s ego I mentioned something I'd like to have again, and lo and behold, I got it via mail recently. I- won't divulge what is was nor from whom, and I expect - to write a letter of thanks very soon. I've frequently mentioned that I am very fond or diamonds, Now I don't expect one the size of Grace, her serene highnesses' twelve carat "extravaganza." I'll be happy with one like Margaret's — a carat number. Will my mail be flooded with diamonds? I fear not. ' • ' * » They say "spring has sprung" but I don't believe my two peony bushes I had put out last fall have heard the glad tidings. So far there isn't a spark of life coming above ground. I am especially anxious to have -luxiur- iant blooms by May 30. '* . * •* One of my pet peeves is commercials. Have you heard the latest — Dove — Oh-h-h-brothar. Dulcet tones from a man rhake me sick, urging women to use DOVQ which rhymes with love. That's what the man- says ad nausium. What's become of- the cooing Lady Esther? I could listen to her much better than to this man. Cosmetics is a woman's field — Max Factor to the contrary. Or should I say not with standing. * * * Gone are the days— I have several Currier and Ives prints jturt j[ wanted some gummed tape to fasten a. glass over them. It was us-, t "\tensively years ago and was called passpoutoui — I guess that's the way to spell it. It was pronounced pass-pa-too. Many phone calls and I have yet to find any merchant having the item. NOW what to do — maybe I'll come. up with a bright idea other than frijmes. frames are rather expensive. * • » » doing back to briefs of 1924— Officers discovered IB gallons ,of alcohol in barn.
