Tunde Bajoh Will Speak At AEA Banquet Shower Honors Bride Of Swea City Man I- don't know where the sparrows have kept themselves during the extremely cold weather and I have missed them from the feeder. However, they are back and it is good to hear their twitter and see them eating! Ah I spring is a com in' I Here we are, over half-way through February and that endless January. Our manager here is by no means a pessismist but he is keeping his tractor in good condition just in Case February acts up. - o - Valentine's Day was appropriately observed here with heart-shaped candy fastened to a small reminder of the day, placed on our noon trays. Little cups of heart-shaped candies were on our supper trays. - o - Just up from my nap and luckily established in my chair at my desk as I had callers, Mrs. L.L. Snyder and her daughter Sara, and Mrs. Arris Druyff and little son. The children brought a Valentine to each resident made by members of the third grade church school. A Biblical verse was on the back and candy was on the front. The Valentines were made of red paper lace very pretty - and the whole representing loving labor of nine- year-olds. - o - If changes and remodeling have begun, can spring be far away? They are usually the first sym- toms of the coming of spring. I talked today with a friend who has started the upheaval. But it will be so nice when done. It's an ordeal - I have been through it years ago when the "fever" overtook mother. Liberated women? Bosh! - o - That was quite an idea having donations from celebrities and articles to sell at the Garrigan carnival. I wonder who bought Jack Benny's cuff links? He could well afford sending a generous check, too. is to hear of morcpidpore women buying wigs. I admit i have! had one for some time, a really good one, and it is exactly the auburn my hair was. I call it "Laura" which is my first name. Then I bought one, darker auburn, at such an unbelievably low price that people are inclined to not quite taking my word. I call it "Belinda." I look at Esther fading's wonderfully thick, beautifully cut hair and think, "Why, oh why, couldn't mine have stayed in?" However, I console myself a little when I remember doctors at Iowa City said the folicles were destroyed by a very high fever during an ear, nose and throat infection years ago. - o - And am I glad wigs are made for men! Not the patches of hair of yore, but head-covering wigs, a la women. - o - I hope I can get up town while at least part of it is left. A cartoon this morning, Feb. 16, is quite apropos. Men gathered around a table are listening to the spokesman who is showing a map and saying, "I'm convinced that by razing the entire downtown area, we can solve the par king problem." - o - I've been reading articles on Lincoln and Washington. Lincoln, who heretofor had been depicted as a self-conscious, woman-shy man, was quite a Lothario and had a long list of lady friends- and by that I don't mean illicit affairs. And his great love for Ann Rutledge was mere friendship, too. it was Mary Todd who sought him and got him. Well, he was a great man, as the article said, and his greatness never diminished. - o Washington, instead of being born Feb. 22 as we have believed all these years, was born Feb. 15 - the date changes due to calendar changes. Much of what we have believed about his early life was revealed and different than we have thought. The cherry tree incident remains mostly "hooey." However, he too, proved to be a great man. - o Ye Gods! what next? Ob- stretician dolls, made in Paris, a zipper down the front and a small doll removed. Quote, "It's an educational toy designed to de-mystjly childbirth." Sells for $9. Well, children are informed at an early age (no dolls, either) much younger than in my era. Well, Paris is noted for its liberal views on morals, a gay, carefree city so we are told, and the doll is just adding more "fuel" and maybe the reputation is not justified. - o Just had a letter from a cousin „„ ,ln Yucaipa, Calif. sa,ying they felt «& |just;a^sligftt:rolling during the •^recent earthquake. I had been wondering about her and am relieved. - o "You get out of life just what you put into it - minus taxes." Safe Showers If you enjoy a bracing shower on a hot summer day, new shower controls . may interest you. These new controls may be preset to avoid sudden surges of hot or icy cold water with changes of water pressure. * * * Brighten Staircases When selecting a paint for use on walls of an enclosed staircase, it's a good idea to choose white or other light colors which reflect the greatest amount Ml light.
