Reunion Held to Make Pians "I didn't know F. M. all dressed up." . . "Hasn't Woody got the new look?" . . . "Do you think Nancy looks any older now that she's married?" Such were the comments heard at the annual reunion for campers and staff members of Camp Gaywood, Mason City Girl* Scout camp, Thursday afternoon at the Y. W. C. A. The 20 counselors were as excited as the youngest scouts at the luncheon preceding the reunion. Notes were compared by the various college members of the group. Those who are now out "on their own" had their bit to contribute and with only one bride in the group, she could hold the center of the stage. The program for the afternoon was informal. There was singing —everything from camp songs to Christmas carols. Each unit put on a stunt and made suggestions for next year's camping. Mrs. Fick emphasized the need for sending in camp reservations early and pointed out that many girls are saving money for camp through camp saving stamps. Plans were made by a group of counselors for a winter camp to be held during the week following Christmas. North iowan Weds in Alameda, Cal.

A LINE O'PIPE Stick to the Pipe—Let the Smoke Blow Where It Will HAPFlf NEW YEAR A happy New Year to you all, May richest blessings on you fall, And may good fortune on you shine, Through nineteen hundred forty nine. Which looking forward to the new year is one of the best things the people do. As to why a mere change in the date, or dates, on a calendar should cause people to look forward to, and hope for, bigger and better things we know not. Not that it hurts any to look forward to, and hope for, better things to come. For so long as hope can flutter even a weak wing over us, we manage to keep going somehow. It is when all hope is gone that we give up and cease trying. At that 1948 wasn't so bad. If the war mongers had but shut their big: mouths and if the newspapers had run out of scare headlines, it would have been one of the best years in history. That is in every way except from a republican standpoint. 1948 was a complete fizzle as far as they were concerned. The best book about birds we have ever seen is "American Birds in Color," "Land Birds," by Hal H. Harrison. It is a large book, profusely illustrated with many pictures in color and gives the size, colors, song notes and nesting habits of every bird in the country as well as to their migrating habits and where to. If you like birds ask any of the good looking gals at the library to get it for you. Note to Joe Holub. Get the foregoing mentioned book and prepare to just about go nuts over it. At least we did. A big bouquet to our street department. For years it has been the practice for the street snow plows to heave a pile of snow up over the end of the sidewalks making a gob of snow to wade or wallow through. However this year after plowing out the streets, the street department men opened up the sidewalk ends, greatly assisting pedestrians in going from where they were to where they would rather be. — A—AS PEOPLE WALK FORTH TO AND FRO, THEY DO NOT LIKE TO WADE IN SNOW. Already the first sign of an early spring has put in its appearance. The first seed catalog had done arrived. This is the earliest we have ever seen this harbinger of spring appear in full bloom before January 1. An early spring is thusly indicated. May such an oc- curence come to pass. Alright, alright, everybody go ahead and cail us the biggest liar in northern loway. But we did see a purple grackle (blackbird to you) on the public library grounds Thursday, Dec. 16. And don't try to tell us it was a starling. We know our birds better than that, As to whether the said blackbird was the last one of autumn or the first one of the coming pring we know not.

Mr. and Mrs. Huffman will reside in Memphis where Mr. Huffman is in the naval air station, for something to eat. Speaking of birds, don't overlook slipping them a bite to eat now and then. It's pretty slim Picking for them when there is snow on the ground. B A _ WHEN SNOW ON EVERY THING DOTH FALL THE BIRDS CAN SCARCELY EAT AT ALL. Time now for new calendars and almanacs. Soon the old calendars will be discarded and filed in the waste paper basket while the new fresh ones, take their places on the walls of offices and homes to remind us as to when comes groundhog day. the glorious Fourth, and other important days To say nothing of letting us know when is the rent due, the interest on the mortgage, and the wife's birthday.
