Athlelic club, for Ihree ball There are .slill many Algona oldtimers who knew and had a high regard for the Rev. F. C. Taylor, Methodist pastor here 30 years ago. Mr. Taylor, now retired, will reach his 70lh birthday next week Thursday, and it is planned to have his friends everywhere give him a great surprise shower of cards and letters. The greetings are to be addressed to Mr. Taylor in care of Mrs. Fred Lang, box 180, Garden Road, Salem, Ore. Letter From Daughter. Mr. Taylor's daughter Mrs. Naomi Taylor-Pate, 1212 V St., Vancouver, Wash., writes that nothing in the way of a birthday celebration could please her father more than these greetings from the old friends of a lifetime in the ministry. The Taylor children have always made a. big day out of their lather's birthday, but this year they want to make it Ihc biggest • day of all and have the old friends help. Compelled to Retire. After 45 brilliant years in pastoral service, Mr. Taylor was recently compelled to retire because of a dangerous heart condition which followed a flu attack of last December which kept him abed during the next several months. When he was sick Mr. Taylor was pastor of a Vancouver church. Realizing that he must resign, he insisted, against the advice of his doctors and family pleas, on preaching a farewell sermon. Though scarcely able to climb stairs at the church, he preached with such oldtime vigor thai few in Ihe congregation suspected his real condition. Writing of her father, Mrs. Pate, who loyally claims "there is no finer man alive than my i;id," says: "Dun-Movin" Cottage. "Since June, the folks, with my sister Lois, who was born in Algona—some friends there may remember her as a tiny red- haired baby—have been living in a cottage on the beach near Tolovana Park, where in 193G Dud built 'Dun-Movin' as a place for future retirement. The collage is siluatecl on a j bluff against which the blue waves of Ihe Pacific break. One can sit there in a beautiful, restful spot and watch the ships pass by, the big blimps go out daily on coast guard, and planes soar from a near-by training base. Tnis is one of the loveliest beaches on Ihe northwest coast. "The folks will be there till sometime in October, and then will return to Salem, Ore., where dad was pastor more than six years. My sister Annette still lives there." I ! ORMER H. D. A. AIDS VETERANS ON SHIPS HOME Ll lULlr* (. LM11 til itttrt-s w c i«- RI v i.. 11. • . t A . Mrs. H. .A.
