Tidbits from Evelyn When I was at Mason City recently Jean, who teaches music at the college 1 in Baton Rouge, La., said "I have a message- greetings to you from Oscar Rosewall. When he was introduced to me and learned I was a Cady he asked me if I was anv relation to Evelyn Cady, of Algona." The answer being in the affirmative, he gave her a "Hello" for me. I knew Oscar and his brother Hjahnar, "Kalz" way back when we were in high schopl together. * * * I called Mrs Anna Madson for news the other day and for the first time didn't hear canaries singing merrily. I asked her "How come." She replied they had sung their songs earlier in the morning, were now having their -siesta and would* begin again around 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 bettor than parakeets. So do I, cute as they are. V t * * Mrs Frank Mescher of Bancroft was given.a birthday dinner MAY is BEEF MONTH! a week ago Sunday at the home of her son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs John Gisch. She was made hfappy by a phone call from her daughter, Mrs Wallace Johnson, of Hagerstown, Md., nee Dorothy Mescher. The grandchildren, Gary, Randy, Kevin and Jeffrey also talked with h»r and wished her happy birthday. * * * Another mothet was made happy the same day. Mrs Herman Stienblock had a phone call from her daughter, Judith, who is attending school in Des Moines, wishing her a happy birthday. < * • Mrs John Briggs also observed a birthday anniversary last week and was visited over the weekend .by her son-in-law, Jerry Daniels, of Minneapolis, Minri. Her gift from him and his wife, Sally, daughter of Mr and Mrs Briggs, was an electric coffee percolator. * # * Mr and Mrs Mallard 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. Mr Whitehead and Hallard are baseball players and Mr Kossuth County, Iowa, Beef Ass'n. Even When The Weather's Dry , . . IT PAYS TO FERTILIZE! This is a "dry" spring — and many farmers are delaying their fertilizer program this year "until we get rain." THIS IS A MISTAKE ! Fertiiizsr 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. Actual records prove it. Here are the Facts: In 1955, a test at Iowa State College showed the following results: Corn (no fertilizer) 43.8 bu. per acre Corn (40 Ibs. Nitrogen) 73.8 bu. per acre Corn (80 Ibs. Nitrogen) 83.9 bu. per acre In 1953, also a dry 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 per acre.

Your co-op, and the Consumers Cooperative Association fertilizer plant in Eagle Grove can supply you with- the Mixed Fertilizer of the right formulation for your requirements. Buy through your co-op and get the important savings through patronage refunds that cut your costs and "ease the squeeze."

Mallard is well content to drop out of baseball and be able to have ft peffiiinettl Residence. Baseball keeps one on the ftriove and the Snyders find it very pleasant to. 1 stay at home, have their own household goods ahd "settle down/' He is employed by Raymond Alderson, and formerly was property of the Brooklyn Codgers. * * » the Leon Martins had a very nice vacation way babk at Eastet time. They spent the holiday weekend at Chicago, putting up at the Allerton hotel which is nicely located out of the loop and oftly a block or two from Lake Michigan. Among the interesting places they visited were Field Museum, the Aquarium, Science and Industry building and Brookfield Zoo. Near the hotel tWey took the subway and in the 2400 block came to the surface and the elevated near FuJlerton, 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 Mi- Slickers was on the school faculty. At Dickens, 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 quite 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 room is a huge, long room with a porch swing hung in the middle of it. There are many Indian rugs, baskets, saddles, etc in it besides a mounted calf which provided a target for his roping in the house. The library 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 were buried out in front of the ('tables with stones and the names, age and year they died." * * * 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 in 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 n fireplace—dreaming of his lady love 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 weeks ago 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 in 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 tiding;-:. Ho 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 com- merciMls. Have you heard the latest — Dove - Oh-h-h-broth-r. Dulcet tones^ from a man make me sick, urging women t>> use Dove which rhymes willi love. That's what the man 'says ad nausium. What's become of th.- 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 nut with standing. * * * Gone are the days—I have sev- crn! Currier and Ives prints and I wanted some Rummcrt tape to fasten u ^lass over them. It w;-.- us-.. i "Xtensively years a .40 and wav called passpoutoui- I ;uie^ that's the wji.v to spell it. It wa.- pnmounced pass-pa-too. Mai," phone calls aiv.l I have yet to limi any mc'ivhan 1 having the item. NOW what to do —maybr I'll i-unie up with a bright idea other than frames. Frames are rathe; expensive. * » *» Going back to briefs of 1924— Officers discovered 18 gallons of rjleuhol in barn. Owner.--, not apprehended (what a bin^e 'eouM have been had.)
