Enroute to Kansas, they stopped off at Clarinda, where they attended the morning services in St. John's Lutheran church which is now served by the Rev. W. H. Discher, former pastor of St. Paul's here in Whittemore. They returned home Sunday evening. Tidbits From Evelyn I was greatly interested in a T.V. program one night last week. Yes, I succumbed several weeks ago, and whDe I am not So enthusiastic that I keep a continuous program, there are a few I enjoy very much. Oi course, Lawrence Welk is my favorite. And I like Edgar Bergen and Charley McCarthy. It was on his program "Do You Trust Your Wife" when he introduced Mr and Mrs Bob Miller of Pomona, Calif., that I sat up and took notice. Mr Miller teaches at Chino in the Boys Republic. 1 have been there several times, driven all over the acres surrounding it to see the barns.and out buildings, for this is a sort of "farm" as wc-ll as school. It was there my aunt Mary Henderson Long was house mother and it was from there mother and 1 received one of the dclla robia wreaths, which are made each year by the boys und sold in most of the states of the union. * a * Speaking of writing — I've been told there is a movement started for collecting poems by Ray Kresensky and compiling a book which will be marketed. Kay, was very talented and the book will be certainly worth having m one's private library, v * * Some of the Thanksgiving news I reported did not com» to pass because of the bad weather but for the most part things went off as scheduled. One thing that didn't was my trip to Wichita. Not because of weather exactly, but my fear of what is might be when I'd be going to or from Mason.City to catch the Rocket. * * * Kathy Weydert and Juhe Wall- ukait are cousins whose birthdays are only nine days apart. A birthday dinner was held Sunday, Nov. 25, at the home of the grandparents, Mr and Mrs Chris Wal- lukait. There is a quartet of granddaughters for Duane has another daughter, Jane, and Betty has another daughter, Christie. 4 * * When Mrs Katherine Simon travels she always has interesting experiences. She was recently in Chicago visiting her son-in- law, C. J. Winandy and children and sister, Mrs J. R. Winandy While there she was her son-in- law's guest at a night club where .-^he found out how the other half lives. She decided they lived very expensively and was aghast at the enormous prices charged for food. She considered the floor Fhow good entertainment but she is not keyed to city living and likes -little old Algona which spells home. » * * Two persons who didn't gel home for Thanksgiving were Ruth Schwoppe and her husband. Norbert Hattendorf of St. Paul, Minn. The storm was too b:id for them tt> start out so Ruth called her parents, Mr and Mrs Arthur Schwi'ppc, and said the dinner would have to be canceled so far as she and her husband were concerned. What a disappointment all around. * * * I phoned Theresa Oslwinkle the other day. We always get into quite a lengthy conversation but this one was broken off rather suddenly. The little son, Joey, had discovered the chocolate chips she had opened on the kitchen table in preparation for cookies. So to the rescue fled mother. * * 4 Each day is crossed off the Paul Palmer's calendar and the son Jim's homecoming gets closer and closer. For 6 1 ,-; months Jin, has been in service on the TJ.S S Bryce Canyon and October 2!J reached port at Long Beach, Cal. December 2 marks the date of four years in service and he should be home some time not too far from that. Surely he will make it by Christmas. Not Ions ago he visited his brother Leo in San Francisco. Jim's brother Bob was at one time on the same .•ship with him. At the time- ol sailing, Bob had been in ;in accident and was !iospit;ili/ed. Upon recovery ho was assigned to a destroyer. He has been out ol service since a year ago last September h;,ving served four years too. lit? is at. present employed by the Winters and Burden milk i-ompany and drives UIL Wholesttle truck here. * » « Gary Moore should watch his grammar more closely. Recentiy mi "I Have a Secret" lie nien- tioned a gorilla which had torn the trousers of the St. Louis zoo nit^nci--»nt. ;md remarked ' \Vh i DONE it." And he v,d-n being funny, or was he mentioning the books facetiously called Who Dunnits. * * * In a recent chat with Eula Rich I asked her if she and husband John were going south or west this winter, as they did the past couple of years. She replied she didn't think so. I said, "Well, do as I did. Buy a T.V. and stay at home." Now I don't think she acted on my advice just as though my word had to be obeyed. I think they had toyed with the idea for some time. At any rate, they did buy a T.V. and if I could influence people as easily as that, I'd apply for a job with some of the persons who have agencies. I don't know what the percentage is, but it seems to me there are far more roofs decorated with antennas than there are bare ones. That's one nice thing about living injm area where only "rabbit ears" x are needed. No ghostly wire skeletons hanging to the roofs. Your next door neighbor doesn't know if you "has or .hasn't". Might be able to fool the assessor too. * * • . Mr and Mrs A. V. Larson have returned from a nice trip to 'Niagara Falls, N. Y. where they visited their son-in-law, and daughter, Mr and Mrs K. L. Shumway and the six children. They also enjoyed the twelve grandchildren, the latest of whom was born September 24. From' Nia- trara Falls they went to Grand Rapids, Mich., to visit their yon and daughter-in-law, Mr and .Mrs Roland Larson and three daughters. Enroute home they ; stopped at Decorah to see another son and daughter-in-law, Mr and Mrs Russell Larson and their three children. * * * ti i* always heart-warming to learn that a baby has been adopted. Thfe' latest-1 "Have Heard of is that Katherine Stewart and her husband Ralph Fish of Elgin, 111., took an infant November 4 which was born October 10. They have named the child Sherry Lynn." She is a sturdy little girl," wrote Mrs Fish," and weighed ten pounds at birth." Katherine is the. older daughter of Mrs Connie Stewart and the late Clarence Stewart who lived here a number of years ago. The family will be well remembered I am sure. Mrs Stewart is a sister of Ray Beamish. * » « I'd be glad to heat from anyone who can match my record. My Christmas gifts are wrapped, ready for mailing arid ready to go. How's that for November 29? It was the usual scramble for scissors buried under ribbons and tissue, a hunt for the pen covered with other Christmas debris, the tangle of cord, the paper that wouldn't fold nicely, and I finally took to bed for half an hour before the evening meal to sooth my shattered nerves, Merry Christmas. « * * A few more November 1924 items — Samuel Steussy, well known LuVerne man died suddenly. First National Bank of Algona closed it's doors. Lupke Wirtjes, Titonka man, killed in an auto accident. Congressman and Mrs L. J. Dickinson left for Washington, D. C. D. A. Haggard left for San Antoino, Tex., to spend the winter. Tuesday, foeamber 4, 1956 Algono (la.) Uppar D« Mdlnti-? equipment operator in the task force which has the Vifginia fort as its home base.
