They did here rwe vcr see the interior of Ike • ashington's home and the ex- of erior of many of the buildings m which comprise the estate. c * At Washington Ihey were guests of Lloyd's brother-in-law and sisters. Mr and Mrs Harry Otterson and Florence Wellendorf. Mrs Otterson is the former Leon:; Wellendorf. Florence, for 23 years has been employed at the Sheraton hotel as housekeeper or manager. Her job is done principally by telephone and it is her dutv to see to it that everything is l^ken e-ire of for conventions and banquets. At Dayton. Ohio they visited Mr and Mrs Frank Ro^-s. Mrs Pocs is the former Margaret Winslow and will be remembered :is a former resident here. The last stop was made at Grmncll where Mr and Mrs Wel- lendoi f were over night guests of the hitter's brother and sister-in- law, Mr and Mrs D. E. Miller. * * * Those of you who read the "Des Monies Register" will have noticed on the front page of the Oct. 2P. a picture of a ship, the Italian freighter Etruseo. What is of most interest is that Daniel Bray's brother-in-law. Henry Dowd. has an interest in the ship. Last March the ship went aground and attempts to free her h'id failed. Five men. including Mr Dmvd, bought the ship from the Italian line for a half million dollars. A man who had supervised the raising of ships in Pearl Harbor look over and at present the ship lies a few blocks out in the water at Scituate. Mass. The nit-turf makes it look as though the houses were but a-few feet from the ship. As a matter of fact, the proximity is much greater—the several blocks as mentioned. The tide was at one time thousht to be .just right for its liberation, but it turned out not so. However, it will b<_- afloat ; n Hue time. Mr Dowd is a shipping broker inri h""* h"d much experience in v "ch situations as this.

" REPRESENTING IOWA HARDWARE MUTUAL BOHANNON INSURANCE SERVICE Across Street Cast of Iowa State Bank Phone 103 OLDS I has something TERRIFIC to show you ON FRIDAY! I All New Olds Front End Two fabulous offers have been made to the five owners. One is an offer of one and a half million offered by the United Mine Workers and one by Krupp offering $40,000.00 per month for hauling coal. Dr. and Mrs Bray were gone nine days and some of the high lights were a visit to the home of Teddy Roosevelt, fishing in Long Island sound, and eating at Leone's. Leone's was featured in a recent issue of the "Saturday Evening Post. "They were also greatly impressed by the turnpikes, which as Mrs Rrav said, "greatly expedites travel." The ship, when ready for use will be re-christened "The Scituate." * * • At a strlall party the other afternoon we got to telling stories about little folk. Mrs Gilles told of a little fellow who had attended church. When asked about the service lie said. "Oh. they sang about an old quilt." It turned out the song was "The Comforter Has Come." Mrs Laing came un with this. Her voung son Edd had attended Sunday school and it must have been near Christmas and the story of the Nativity was being told. Summing it up he said. "When they got there they didn't have any place to park s<> Ihev went to a barn." I believe' it was \.\7.7.\p Pot't who told the story •'bout the Dr. K. C. Ilartmnn children becoming very excited and "iinn'ng into the house exclaim- 'ng.' "I saw ,Tr\sus- coming down from the sky." Sifted down, if was a man wearing a rather lonf beard coming down from a tele- nhone pole where he had done some work. * * * When a woman stayed with the Post youngsters a few nights ago, Rickie, who was accustomed to seeing this woman merely ns a neighbor and friend said, "Why are vou here?" To which she re- nlied. "I'm 'baby sitting' with Rex." Scornfully Rick replied. "He ain't no baby—he's growed up." I think Rick has a point there for surely you could hardly consider Rex a baby. If you could see him watch the road before crossing, watch him at play, and see all fifty pounds of him strutting uo the street, you'd agree with Rickie. He sure seems "growed un," even though he is only two and half years old. * * * Isn't it wonderful to reach Ihe age of 80 and nast and be able to travel? Mr and Mrs Effie Locke (D renounced Ee'-fey) and their daughter Elma have been traveling bv bus to New York from their home at Reamer. Minn or Grand Raoids, as Florence Biustrom said, and Roy s^id Reamer. Minn. Anvhow, the ciMiple is af?e'l, vet able to have th's wonderful trio. Mr LorVn \? a brother of Mrs Bessie Walker Arthur Locke who makes his home with her. * * * How many of vr>u want lo qo to Alnska to live? Before rmking a definite decision in the affirmative, think this over. Mr and Mrs Calvin Pasley are there while he does his stretch for Uncle Sam. Bread is 49 cents per loaf, eggs are over $1.00 per dozen, their apartment rents for $125,00 pel- month, and probably isn't too deluxe at that. Who said they wanted to go there? * * * Did you ever know Mr«; John Dreesmnn was a witch? No, I'm not living in the days of the colonies and the Salem witchcraft. I am referring to Octobpr 1056. Mrs Drcesman entered into the spirit of the entertainment when her son Robert ws host to a group of friends at a halloween oarty. She dressed for the role, had a glove filled with ice cubes for the guests to shake—and what screams the girls let out—passer- bv might have thought it a place of crime. She also presided over the cauldron and told fortunes Yes indeed—a good time was had by all. * * * The ink was scarcely dry on my item of last week concerning Ann O'Brien and her youthful looks which sometimes em- barass her when I read of an- 100 At Local C.D.A. Living Rosary Event On Thursday evening, Oct. 25, about 100 members' and prospec- tivo members of Court St. Cecelia's of the Catholic Daughters of Algona, took part in the Living Rosary paying tribute to the Blessed Virgin as nortrayed bv Mrs M;iry Lou Stienman. After this impressive candlelit '•eremonv. Miss Mary Staudt sang "Ave Miiri,V. accompanied by Miss Josio McEvov at the piano. An interesting talk was given us by the chaplain, Mss>r. Gearen. After a light lunch, a "get ac- ouainted". game of name bingo was played with Mrs Helen Mil- 'r>r winning the nrize. Games of "500". and bridge then took MO the remainder of the evening. Mis Leona Henry won the prize for high score. "A great deal of credit is due the committee. headed bv M'-s Nellie VanAllen •intl Mrs Corrine Laing, for such a successful evening.

It was a 15 point buck, weighing over 250 pounds. IMJUftEft Ten persons were hurt, but nobody killed, in a two car collision near Petla recently. Oldest ot the injured was 84 year old Milton Delano, one of the drivers. other woman who. looked about 14 and was several years older than that. She objected to being denied drinks in public places, and other things more important, so she took measures to become older looking. What was done wasn't explained, but it certainly is an entirelv new slant on cosmetology. Take me for instance. I am a member of the society for crippled adults and children. A picture of those who participate in the hobby shows was wanted, and since I am a participant. I sent the picture which apoeared in this paper a few months ago. But did I want it as WAS? No indeed—I wanted it glamorized. No, I got no such results. No vears were subtracted. In fact I am almost believing, arguing with myself, so to <=oeak, thnt the oicture AGED me Ah vanity! * » • .'.:>*. A^ain *\\r***> heartless gremlins making HT^RY Johinnesen Harry! And HULDA Kolh>sch came out Mrs Harold K. The saints preserve us! I'll admit I was the "remlin who wrote Mr and Mrs Carl Hanson were visited by the fitter's brother and sister-in-law, Mr and Mrs Bobo. It was Mr -<nd Mrs Errnan Hansen whom <hev visited and Mr Bobo is a b'vither of Mrs Hanse.n. But the other errors definitely were not mine. No Grazing 'Til After Dec. 31 The Kossuth ASC office recently has had many inquiries in ••cearcl to grazing the acreage reserve. According to the agreement the acreacre reserve is not to he crazed until after December 31. 1956. Crons now growing on the acreage reserve as protective cover which would mature as ^rain or seed in 1956 and could '•>« harvested after December 31, 1956, must be plowed under or otherwise physically incorporated into thf soil, clipped, mowed or cut by November 1. Hello!.... that you, Jim? C!dsmobile'$ completely new front end for 1957 presents many Styling innovations while maintaining the Oldsmobile identification With the hood ornament, twin rocket emblems on the fenders and the name in chrome block letters across the closely spaced louvers of the grille. The massive "hi-lo" bumper provides double frontal protection. A styling "first" are the parking lights reminiscent of the experimental Golden Rocket. Hooded headlamps with deep visors add further to the smart appearance. The wide "Span-A- Kamic" windshield has up to 18 per cent more glass area and air inlet at its ba»e completely spans the hood.
