PAGE FOUR KOSSUTH COUNTY ADVANCE, ALGONA. IOWA 250 GREETINGS SWAMP FORMER ALGONA PASTOR Friends Pay Tribute to the Rev. F. C. Taylor. If the Rev. F. C. Taylor, pastor of the local Methodist church 30 years ago, ever had a day when he could say he was having the time of his life, it was probably on Friday, Oct. 6, when the family celebrated his 70th birthday. "Dad's" birthday celebrations had always been great events in the Taylor family, his daughter Mrs. Pate wrote, but this time old friends of many pastorates wore let in on the observance, and if Mr. Tavlor did not have the lime of his life, he certainly got the surprise of a lifetime when after the usual family dinner a big basketful of greetings from former parishioners was wheeled in by a 3-year-old grandson and set before him. More Than 250 Greetings. Letters from the daughters Mrs. Naomi Taylor-Pate, teaching at Vancouver, Wash., while her husband is in service, and Mrs. Annette Taylor-Lang, Sa- 1cm. Ore., at whose home the celebration took place, also a letter from Mr. Taylor himself have reported 'he event. The girls wrote that there were more than 250 letters, cards, and other greetings, and Mr.' Taylor said that there were even more of them from his old friends in Iowa linn from his former Ore- pon and Washington pastorates, though the latter were very largely represented. An Exciting Time. Mrs. Pale wrote thai after the birthday cake with its 70 candles .hud been cut and disposed of, family gifls were presented, including a lealher jacket Which Mr. Tavlor had wanted for wear at his "Dun-Movin Cottage by the Soa" on the Oregon coast, Mrs. Lang remarked, as if only incidentally, "Oh, I think some cards came for you, Dad," and then rame the big surprise of the dav for the honoree. Everybody had been wailing for a dinner last course of ice cream, taut fchat was forgotten as all crowded around Mr. Taylor Basketful of Greetings T HE PRINCIPALS IN THIS PICTURE were well known in Algona 30 years ago. They are the Rev. and Mrs. F. C. Taylor, and Mr. Taylor was then the brilliant pastor of the local Methodist! church. Many years ago he left the Northwest Iowa Methodist Conference for new service on the northwest coast, and now poor health has compelled him to retire. On Oct. 6 he reached his 70th birthday, and here Mr. and Mrs. Taylor are shown aoing through a surprise shower of greetings from old friends in all the congregations he served in Iowa, Oregon, and Washington state. Among the greetings arc a number from Algonians. UNDERKOFLER, EX-DRUGGIST, LEDYARD, DIES ST.
