8—Algona (la.) Upper Oes Moine* Tuesday, May 22, 1956 Tidbits From Evelyn Mti LuelU Baker has returned from Tuscon. Ariz., where she spent the past 5'i months. She spent a few weeks in California, going first to Palm Springs to visit her brother-in-law and sister, Dr. and Mrs H. H. Stewart. At Arcadia she visited Mr and Mrs George Free and at Burbank she was euest of Mrs Lee Reed, all former Algonans. The Reed children, twins, Carolyn and Rosalyn, and Mary Elizabeth, are growing up rapidly and are beautiful children. Mary Elizabeth is a lovely golden blonde with pink cheeks, fair complexion and brown eyes. The twins are also .most attractive Mrs Baker says. • • • * At a women's meeting recently each person was asked to relate their most embarrassing moment. This is really the prize story. Two ladies were on vacation at a distant point and had a room for a few weeks in a hotel which employed a Chinese lad to whom the ladies became quite attached for his excellent service and general behavior. One of the ladies developed a pain in her forearms and decided to use Vicks Vapp-rub to allay the pain. Not wanting to soil the sheets and not having anything to cover DIAMOND'S PAINT ALE WHITE OUTSIDE RED BARN PAJNT Gallon 5-GALS. 10.88 Ask Your Neighbor — He Has Probably Used This Paint SURPLUS her arms, she bought a pair of rockford socks. In the morning she slipped them off and when she came back to her room several hours later, the bed had been made and the socks placed thereon. The accusing eyes of the servant coupled with his reproachful manner told her plainly what interpretation he had placed on the innocent socks. (I don't know whether the lady made anv explanation or not) * * » Mrs Emma Dehnert called on me the other morning to show me a stole she had just completed. It is a beautiful accessory and is made of soft yarn, Lavender color. I asked her"how she made it and she said, "Hair pin lace crocheted together." She makes the lace in strips the desired length, then they are crocheted together to the desired width. There is a fringe on the ends to give it the finished look. I had a stole given me for Christmas, otherwise I'd be duplicating hers. I told her she should exhibit it at the Kossuth County fair. I think there is a revised premium list which includes stoles. * * * Spring is here. Jimmy Allen went fshng Wednesday! Haven't heard what luck he had. * * * I didn't attend the school musical a week or so ago but one who did told me about the novel instruments. One was a "homemade" marimba, the other a zylaphone, made under the direction of Walter McBride, principal of Bryant building. The marimba was made of various sized flower pots suspended from a rack like those used in stores to display women's dresses. One pot got broken awhile ago and it was with some difficulty one was found of the right pitch. The xylaphone was made of wooden pieces and the McBride's sons. Don and Dale, played the unique instruments. I was told it was a project Mr McBride had used in his Boy Scout activities. Background accompaniment was paper and comb combination, washboard, home made tambourine and sticks, a veritable "Spike Jones" arrangement. One particularly enjoyable feature was a dance by Carol Richman and Lynn Kueck. All in all the program was voted one of the finest ever presented to the public here. * * * Emmajean Lighter had a birthday anniversary Saturday, May 5, and was given, a bang-up celebration. Fifteen members of her Sunday school class dropped in that forenoon, armed with STRICTLY BUSINESS by ^ t |kp -~T^f~~ iV M\/J AMMUNITION "He'i new in the gun department — just made hi* first sale!" serves so man/... costs so little NO MONEY DOWN As Little As $3.00 A Month North Central Public Service Co.

The original plan for a picnic had been to use the Shelter House at Call State park, but it was not in readiness, so the picnic had been postponed. However, the young folk took things into their own hands and descended on Emmajean, much to her surprise. The picnic was highly successful, right there in the living room, for it was a rainy day. Later they ^ went to the Owen .Hurt's and spent the afternoon playing ping pong. The class is composed of seventh grade boys and girls. * • * Eldora is an unusual name" and I had never heard it except as my mother's middle name. Then the other day I learned Mrs Agena's name is Eldora. Zada Brunson's grandmother's name was Eudora. That is one I've never heard duplicated. Yes, mother was Elsie Eldora. * * * You have heard of the suggestion that to catch a bird, sprinkle salt on it's tail. This is a story about asparagus benefiting from a dose of salt. Mrs Towne and I were discussing gardens. She told of a person who put salt on a bed of that delectable spring vegetable to discourage it's growth, plus surrounding weeds. The asparagus grew larger and better from the application. * * • Many Algonans will remember Vi Heller, who married Norman Johnson. In a recent letter to friends here, Mrs Johnson wrote that a refreshment stand is beint? built next to their home and it is assumed that she will operate it as her husband is otherwise employed. The Johnsons are located at Eldorado Springs, Colo., honeymoon place of Mamie and Ike. From the description of the commodities installed and the foods they are prepared to serve, it sounded like an ideal place for a vacation. * * • Kathy Chrischilles look her little neighbor, Rickie Post, to school to visit on guest day last week. Rickie was disgusted thai he wasn't permitted to do numbers. Asked by the members of his family if he had a recess he replied, "No. I only went out doors once.' 1 * » * Kent Jergenson, son of Mr and Mrs Harold Jergenson, celebrated his eleventh birthday May 11 How many of you recall that was V.E. day. * • « I don't like the way radio programs are listed now. It wouldn't be quite so bad if they'd put them in the same place each day, but no—they have to juggle from one place to another, to my vexation. * » • I have mentioned Jimmy Allen which reminds me that I asked him a question the other night but I haven't had an answer yet. With Lizzie Post and Esther Benson the other evening, we passed the store where he is employed. Since Lizzie knows him well through his wife Bernadine and Esther is his sister-in-law, I decided to ask a question which has puzzled me for some time. Every now and then I hear of a fifth. Now I know it's an amount of liquor, but what amount, I've never known—or cared about much, to be truthful. I called in to him "what is a fifth?" Just then a friendly voice answered me, "Five bucks." Now I wasn't asking the price, and the friend who gave the answer knows I'm not interested in "the cup that cheers," but my question still L> what id a fifth? * » • What was happening back in May 1924 — Sunday, May 11, observed as Mothers Day by churches. Contest for North and South sides for Community Club membership, resulted in a tie. City Clerk's office moved to new quarters in city jail.
