Illlllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll ..*>y Evelyn \\WA ll Did you ever have a "mad" week - or even a day? Well, I've been having a week of it and it will be a long time before I'll be recovered even in part. The cause? Because ABC is canceling the best program on the air — Lawrence Welk. There are so few programs I care for and then to have that silly "Hee Haw" left on! Well, my blood is at the boiling point! I know a host of people right here in town who share my views. How are the ratings determined and how can it Judge from nation-wide opinions? ABC will be off my serene completely come fall if there is no Welk. - o - My second "mad" Is too personal to discuss. My third "mad' v is that Just as I had reached the point of discontinuing a certain medication, I tried to reach too high and was going to show my right shoulder that after all I was "boss." Instead it showed me and I have been too mad to trust myself to talk back, which covers "mad 2" as well. - o - So much for my grievances which prove I am no " Pollyanna" and .does prove I am Irish, as.I mentioned. - o - I could mention the weather as another "mad" but with robins reported as having arrived and Mabel Rentz phoning me to say there were four in her yard at that time, I am soothed to a degree under the boiling points of the other "mads." - o- Mrs. Sophia Burke has been visited here at Good Samaritan by her son from Chicago. He visited here a year or so ago and came in to meet me.' He stopped in for a brief chat this time and to say good-bye. He had been in Algona a few days to spend as much time as possible with his mother. He is a very pleasant person to know. - o Hot pantsl Ye Gods! Why not start a nudist colony? - o - I was sorry to read of the death of Roy Moulds at Sioux City. I knew his wife before they were married. My Grandmother Henderson thought so much of his mother. They were neighbors and Mrs. Moulds was so good to grandma. My sympathy, Verna, and I am sending the clipping to Maggie Pannkuk, a good friend of yours who will be sorry and will know your trials for she is widowed, too. - o If when you next see me I am a mottled green, don't be sur- prisedl Some extra pills have been added to my "diet" but I don't anticipate long use. At any rate, the others I take har- Furn. Inc.

He has a host of friends who will miss his calls, brief as they were. He is an interesting talker but never used his chats as a prolonged visit. - o - I've been hearing crows and wondered if they leave in the winter and return in the spring. I was told they are "year arounders." If so, they have been mighty quiet. Iknowacrow is not greatly admired. I don't know why but the saying "eat crow" means apologies or some such thing. - o "You're nobody till somebody loves you, and the next thing you know you are a den mother." - o "Arthur" tells me it's time to quit. I guess "he" knows best. - o - To hoot with "Arthur." I just have to add this. A package was just delivered to me from — guess who? Raymond Wehler — so well-known here. It is an Easter gift, a most luscious- looking fruit cake. I shall have a serving this noon. The enclosed card reads, "Your old neighbor, Ray Wehler." He lives in Klamath, Calif. Thank you so much, old friend. I'll be writing to you this p.m. but I'll say "thanks" now, too, Plan Operetta By LuVerne Elementary Grades LUVERNE - On Friday evening, April 2, the 4th, 5th and 6th grades of the LuVerne elementary school will present the operetta "Tom Sawyer".
