4-Alg«na He.) Upper tot Mdlne* Tuesday, November 2*0, 1956 Tidbits From Evelyn Why is If some one is always digging uO "facts" which spoil long traditions? Tho latest is j report that Cinderalla's slipper vvas not of glass. Research has found the story was a primitive nature myth. Cinderella was the dawn, the wicked stepmother a tbnnder cloud, and the prince was the sun breaking through and routing the cloud. Phooey! How much more, charming is the prince story, his search for the tiny footed charmer—the "They Lived Happily Ever After" ending. Then one version has it the slipper was gold instead of glass. Well, that wouldn't destroy the tale, but a slipper of "fur" spoils the dainty touch, So as far as I am concerned, the slipper was glass and I'll cling to my childish illusions. * * * I note in Harlan Miller's column he is a stamp collector, among other things. Guess I'll send him the three which were on a recent post card from Sherman and Estelle Little of San Rafael, Calif., who are spending five weeks abroad. The card came from Barcelona and pictures a business'"'street—very lovely with broad, streets on each side with beautiful trees and grass in 'a Center strip—sort of a park and 1 am sure I can see benches and people. How lovely it would be in our cities, but I suppose v/e couldn't, possibly contribute so much ground. Here it would be considered waste. • • • Velma Hagg and 1 long ago decided the weatherman overhears my plans and then sends along bad weather to deter me. So often we have had plans to do things and along conies rain or snow. Such was the case Thursday, so I stayed at home and thought not too. well of the day. November 15 — snow, the first of the-season. All of ye who live in a sunnier clime take note! It maybe the last snow Hazel Lusby will see for .a year at least. She is leaving -Nov. 28 for California to spend six months with her daughter Marguerite. She has rented her apartment to Mr and Mrs George Johnson who will move in December 1. It seems a little low down for one of the "Three Musketeers" to pull freight and leave Lizzie and me, here to face the winter. The sporting thing for Hazel to do would be ..tuck us in her luggage. , , -' * . * • While Mrs Clark Orion was in San Francisco, Calif., during-the sickness of her late mother, Mrs May Harte, she Was visited by Ernest Fosnaugh, .former resident here who, knew Merna's sons Webb in particular. He took Merna to meet his wife and tc see his home. He has a lovely olace, a charming wife, and works -as foreman in a canning factory. * * « Lydift Donovan and her Hille granddaughter, Jacqueline Wittern, called on me the blher afternoon. Jackie is a tiny little girl for her three years, a dainty strawberry blonde. To see her now in perfect health, bright eyes, a reafly smile and plenty of activity, one thinks a little prayer of thankfulness that present day medical science was able to save her from a very rare disease. I don't remember the name but she was at University hospital at Iowa City many weeks and has made a complete recovery. * * • The R.M.A. card party suffered in attendance Wednesday evening. There was so much going on it left too few to make the party really successful, but those who attended had a nice time. 1 am sure the school must have drawn many. A class play is always well attended. Well, I attended by, what shall I call it? Proxy? The proxy was a bonnet which belonged to my grand mother and worn by her back in around 1905. • • • Some day I am going io have Lepta Geigel stop by and see tht phiiadendrort she gave me a few years ago on my birthday. 11 has put forth yards and yards of leaves and has two long streamers which are festooned around •< large mirror. It is quite effective. The reflection malces it seem twice it's already good -proportions. There's an idea for you holisewiVeS who have vines. • * • Rex Post had a logical answer for. me the other day. I called to him and said, "Come here, Rex, I have something' f6r you." As he approached me. I said, "Can you guess what I have for you?" "Something", he answered. Not a question, a statement.. He came -^ with the right , answer all right. In case your curiosity getf •the better of you, it was a sucker he had given me some time ago and which I wns told to accept in order to teach him the arl "of('cheerful giving. What is thai about bread being cast and returning? Which of course in this case was not exactly bread. - » , • « The Ted Herbsts have a happy Thanksgiving,to look forward to. Not only are they having guests, (hey hope to .be,moving into their new home. . Wl-jat a thrill a new home would be. » * •' Women are always on the alert for-,new ideas; inexpensive ones.

They are Mr and Mr^ Neal Kimm and children Judj arid Jed, who came from London, England. Mr Kimm recently completed 3M: years al the American embassy in Berlin and m> years as first secretary of the American embassy in London. For the next year or two Mr Kimm will be at Washington, D. C where he will take up his duties under Secretary John Fostei Dulles and Herbert Hoover Jr After that he will be assigned tc another European diplomatic post. Mrs Byam v.sited Mr and Mr? Kimm in London last summer while on a tour with her par ents. * « • One frequently hears of husbands who are locked out and awaited for grimly by angry wives after the normal hour 01 arrival home has been passed. And here I might ask, what is the hour considered proper by wives? Maybe 1 have taken my views from the funny papers. Anyhow, it's usually the man who is the late "stayer-outer." In this case it was a woman. She got into a little game, no, not a gambling game-Hus! friendly 500—and the hour wasn't too late around midnight. She had cautioned her husband not to lock the front door and he amicably agreed. The back door was not accessible because of a cement job just outside. But habit is a great force, and when the husband retired, he locked the front door as usual A long ringing of the door bell, shouts and thumpings failed to arouse the sleeping spouse, so wife yelled to an apartmenl dweller, calling her by name repeatedly. The wife was just on the verge of going to friends and phoning home to be let in wher the idea occurred to her, if the door bell didn't arouse anyone, the phone wouldn't either. As a last resort she went around to an outside stairway, mounted the steps with some heat, for after all, it was disgusting to be in such predicament. Luckily the hall door was unlocked and she gained her bedroom, tired but triumphant. To add to the story, in the morning the woman in the apartment said, "I dreamed you were calling me." The husband had even less than that to say. * * * This story is about the man who got locked out. Under hi? wife's window he called loudly "Wife, wife." Since it was r neighbor, summer time and'his voice carried well, I said to him the next day, ''Why do you cal' "wife, wife" when you get lock ed out?" His reply was logical "So that folks will know I hnv< a. right to get into the house." 1 guess he has something there and no one could accuse the wom- f.n of unwifely conduct shouk' she be seen letting a man into the house in the wee small hour: -assuming the neighbors would be peeping. * * * Some more news of 1924 , which might be of interest—back ' in November of that year.
