BEAT EARTHQUAKE BY 36 HOURS 176 Attend Algona's 14th Picnic In California BY ED GENRICH Former Algona folks now living in California enjoyed their 14th annual picnic, Feb. 7, at El Dorado Park, Long Beach. Adults and children numbered 176. Plenty of fried chicken, potato salad, cakes and pies was evidence that transplanted lowans remember how to pack a mighty good picnic basket. The large recreation building with its fine facilities and the excellent weather added to the jolly renewal of acquaintances.

She introduced Jess Riddle and Frank Mathes who are octogenarians. Mrs. Marie Habeger at 93 is charming, alert and spry. She attributes her good health to a bowl of hot oatmeal every morning.
