A lesson in respect and reverence for our Nation's symbol, to help abolish any thoughts of its destruction - whether cut up, to be used as clothing, torn to shreds or spat upon during a demonstration. The classes in those 16 years have had as many as 32 and as few as 21 students who have read many books, watched film strips and studied the original meaning of their American Heritage. Also, each has written themes revealing "How I Feel When The Star Spangled Banner Is Played" - - - Mrs. Erickson's students have always sung a patriotic song every morning after the Pledge and a prayer was included in the morning ritual until legislation abolished any religious gesture. Two new records were added to the study this year, Red Skelton's monologue explaining each word of the Pledge of Allegiance and Bill Anderson's "Where Have All Our Heroes Gone?"

I tore January off my calendar (but I swear it had more than 31 days), February sped by on wings, and I'll bet I will soon have reports from the first robin see'ers. - o - I want to offer my sympathy to the Patterson family for their recent bereavement, the death of George Patterson, so well- known and a fine man. And I add my thanks for the beautiful flowers that were sent to me. It was such a beautiful artistic arrangement. - o - When you visit Good Samaritan Home I you will see a glass- doored cabinet in which there is a display of rabbits and dogs made by Grace Winter. The bunnies have a receptacle for "grass" and Easter eggs. Knowing the habit of rabbits, I fully expect tiie five on display to be doubled by the next day. - o - I got into a conversation one day and mention was made of Antoinette Bonnstetter who was head nurse when I first came to Good Samaritan. Mention was made of when she had charge of school lunches at Bryant. A large order of groceries had just been delivered but when she went to get them, they had mysteriously disappeared. A couple who picked up garbage had been there and and Antoinette suspicioned where the food had gone, so into her car and away she went in time to see them carrying the sacks into their home. She promptly re-possessed the "loot" and I haven't a doubt she told them what was what. The theft was done by persons long gone from Algona. - o - Well, I have one of those invitations to go to Arizona, near Prescot where lots are being sold. I wouldn't mind a dinner at Charlie's. I've been in Prescott, in fact parked in front of the court house enroute to Palm Springs. I know the lay-out pretty well.

A poor excuse is that the network is trying to please the young folk. All nonsense, for Welk's program consists almost entirely of young people. Furthermore, the young folk are not home evenings.

"" """" A note from Glenn Naudain, along with his Rotary News bulletin, adds sympathy to me for my arthritic upsets, and to Milton Norton who is enduring it without a murmur of complaint. Margaret Hofmaster is another victim who has joined our "club." Glenn said he and his wife are stiff and sore from a couple of tumbles. (Guess we have to give in to the fact that old age "ain't" anything to look forward to with pleasure). - o - Glenn added he had been listed in "Who's Who" a number of years ago and when he wrote the compilers that he is retired, the answer came that in view of his past activities, his name would still be listed. The bulletin contained this quip, "We are only young once.
