A-Algeria (I«.) Upp*f 0*» Maine* Tuesday, D*e§mbef 18, 1956 Tidbits From Evelyn It's a wonder I have the strength in my nrms to push this typewriter. Why? Because I Wrote .letters and letters yesterday. This Christmas season almost gets one down. The first Christmas card I had was from Ktlna Norton Ferguson. Sho paid that through this column she* had learned the address of Earl .Crane, our classmate and a close friend of her brother Mil- Ion. Some letters have been exchanged and Earl sent some family pictures, so they have renewed acquaintance after many years. * * * An item in the Des Moines Register caught my eye and it contained news of former Al- gonans. It stated that Mr and Mis Edgar Beamish of Iowa Falls, had gone to California to Visit their son and daughter-in- ]rf\v, Mr and Mrs Jess Beamish who live at Los Angeles. They stopped enroule at Denver, Colo., •to visit their daughter, Mrs Connie Stewart and daughter Joan. The husband and lather Clarence Stewart died several months ago nt Madison. Wis., where the family had moved from here several years ago. I am sure they will be well remembered. * * * It was amusing listening to Mrs Kenneth Strahorn's description of what R mother goes through when she watches her son wrestle. At . Britt recently she was agonizing with her son Fred, wrestling more mentally than he was physically, hoping for his victory. Nearby was another woman who had a few remarks to make which didn't exactly please Mrs Strahorn, but when she found out that it was Give RCA Television This Christmas HOW!

It is snicl n woman's influence is great on the opposite sex and certainly it must, have been the "Cadettes" who put the pep into the Algona team thereby making possible a win. The "Cadettes'"' are newly organized and this was their first appearance. Like Iowa's Scottish Lassies, these girls gave a drill, dances and formations between halves of the game. * « « Matlie and Burton Thofp6 are leaving soon after January 1 for a trip to the west coast.' They wil! leave by greyhound bus to Minneapolis, Minn., thence to Bo7.eman. Mont., where they will) visit Mattie's niece. Georgia Cole. From there they will go to Longview. Wash., and will visit her sister, Mrs M. C. Keith and other relatives. Then they will go down the coast to Los Angeles, Calif., and will take a side trip (o San Jose to visit Minnie Long, well known former resident here. The Inst lao of the trip will be spent at Phoenix, Ariz., where they will be guests of Mr and Mrs Otis Paddock. Mrs Paddock is f he former Gladys Tribon. They will also see Florence Patterson Howard, well known here. In all they plan to be gone about six weeks. * * * Mr and Mrs Mail Ziltrifscl- have been here from Topeka. Kan., visiting relatives. They were in Wichita when Lizzie POST and I were there a year and a half ago enroute from Houston, Tex We were guests of the Zittri.tschcs one evening and it tVas my first experience in being in a trailer house. It seemed to me it left nothing to be desired, but Lizzie told me the other dav they have bought a new trailer 46 feet long. I think mv house is the longest in "captivity" with it's forty-four feet. Imagine the trailer two feet longer and divided into living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath. It must indeed be a "honey". » * * I talked wilh Mrs James Whil- teinore the other day. The family has a house guest, Mrs Heinz (Margaret) Upmann, of Bonn, Germany, who carne here in Oct. Her visa is good till March but Mrs Whittemore is hoping she can have it extended, but she added, "Her husband may have something to say about that." * * « Mattie Thorpe always did come up with original ideas, way back when we constituted a gay group of ; young folk, Zada Brunson, ^dna Norton, Mary Benjamin, Ethel Lowe, Dot Ca'rlon, Buena Reed, Mattie and I. She has lost none of this over the years and) her latest is an "indoor Christmas picnic" at which others in attendance were Dr. and Mrs Ray Potter, Mr and Mrs Chester Schoby, Mr and Mrs Milton Norton, Mr and Mrs Alfred Schehck, Mr and Mrs Fred Geigel and Mr nnd Mrs Roscoe Mawclsley, Mattic she wished she had thought of it sooner, she would have had the "picnic" before the upstairs ppartmcnt was being re-decorated for the new tenants. She had in mind a way of drawing trees and rural scenes, but had she thought of it sooner, she would have drawn the pictures on the walls. Doesn't that sound clever? My hat's off to Martha! * * * Mr and Mrs O. B. Kinden were recent overnight guests of the Standard Oil Company at the LOCALS Mts Georgia fhaves has received a "Round Robin" Christmas letter from her cojusin, Mary Ann Smith who is employed in the American embassy at Manila, in the Phillipines. A resume of her activities of 1956 is very interesting. Boy Scout iroop 71 held a court of honor at the Methodist church Monday. Dec. 10, at 7:30 p.m. A total of 22 boys were recognized for advancement. Everett Banis leader and Dr. L. L. Snyder assistant leader of the troop. Mrs Bessie Jones was recently visited by Mrs Anna Stapleton and Mrs Ellen Walker of Lake Park. Mrs Walker also visited other friends and relatives here. Mrs Meda Redfield of Des Moines, also spcrit some time with Mrs Jones. Mrs Georgia Thaves has had recent word from friends, Mr and Mrs R. L. Bailey, of Mason City telling of the award to their son Jerry of a four year Fullbright scholarship in music at Vienna, Austria. He is a graduate of the Chicago School of Music and has been guest pianist for outstanding symphony orchestras. Mrs Lee Teal, nee Lavonne Hanselman, daughter of Mr and Mrs John Hanselman, has recovered sufficiently from a recent sickness to have been released last week from St. Ann. For a time she will remain with her parents but will return to her home at the Hillcrest Trailer Court when fully recovered. Mr and Mrs William Hinggen- berg were visited last week Sunday by Mrs Ringgenberg's parents, Mr and Mrs Abe Tuttle, brother and sister-in-law, Mr and Mrs Floyd Tuttle of Blue Earth, Minn., and brother-in-law and sister, Mr and Mrs A. E. Frandle, of Austin. Minn. Mr and Mrs C. B. Murtagh have received word from their daughter Betty and her husband, Blue Horizon motel in Clear Lake. It has been described as a lovely place and when I have lione past it I've always thought. what a nice place it would be to vacation. I asked her about it and she replied, "It was a little cool in places." Wouldn't it be nice if the "places" could store up that chill against next summer's heat. * * * What a pity the movies are so poorly attended afternoons that matinees are now out. 1 am es- necially distressed because I don't fancy getting out evenings, except in summer. I went to the theatrq Monday afternoon not knowing matinees had been canceled. Tne show was a re-doing of "It Happened One Night" -with Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable. It was comforting to laarn the first show was much better than this one with June Allyson, and — was it ^ '. LJ<M\ MINERALS Sure, your livestock need supplementary minerals.

She brought a plate of very good Christmas cookies and two sprigs of holly sent to her and her husband by the two daughters who live in Bay City and Warrenton, Oregon. Mrs Marjorie Craven lives in Warrenton . and was widowed a year ago. Vera is Mrs Heil and she lives in Bay City. Mrs Johnson told me to put the holly in water, it lasts much longer. It looks as perky as can be. Now if I had some mistletoe — but what good would to do me — if you get the general idea! * * * I was sorry to learn of the death of Ed McDade at Orlando, Fla. recently. He had been in poor health a number of years. No one, not even the doctors were able to learn just what the trouble was. He married Mary Benjamin whom I mentioned previously in this column. Of the group of gay young folk I mentioned Zada Brunson and Ethel Lowe are deceased. Mary and Buena Reed (Mrs Carl Dodge) are widows, and I — well I've not been u sprightly person for a long time. The years bring many changes. * * * I hope I won't get as nervous this Sunday as I did last when Bruce Nims appears on T.V. and the $04,000 Challenge. You'd have thought I was his mother. When' I saw Harry Godden on the street after the show he said, "Young Nims looks exactly like his uncle John Lowe." The moment I saw him I exclaimed, "He looks just like John, so it must be true. 0 * * From the number of persons who are headed westward for the Rose Bowl game, I don't see why they didn't charter a train or bus.

All deer shot during the opdn season must be reported, unless they are shot by a person on his own land. However, if they are moved front self-bwhed land, to a locker for example, they must be to comply with the law.
