ALOONA, IOWA, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1966 2nd Stcttofi LOVE IS f HE GREATEST FORCE In the universe. When we think in terms of Love being another name for God, It is quite literally what makes the world go 'round! Love filters down to mere humans In one form or another and In varied degrees of brightness and it comes in several forms - parental, filial, friendly, compassionate, and romantic. On valentine's Day we pay most attention to romantic love. - o - LOVE CAN BE FOUND AT any age but the expression of it changes a bit with the years. And so do Valentines. This is how it might go through the years from six to 75. Age 6 Cotton Weds Age o Shet "Be my Valentine and I'll let you ride my trike." He* "Look at this nice fresh worm! You can have It for a Valentine 'cause 1 like you." Age8 She: "I know he likes me because he chases me more than any other girl in the third grade." He: "Boy, is she neat! she can shinny up a tree as fast as I can. You'd hardly almost not know she's just a girl 1" Age 10 She: "1 haven't decided whether I'll like Tom, Larry or Dick this week so I sent Valentines to all of them." He: "Aw, girls I They make me sick!" Age 13 She: "The trouble with having a Valentine party is that none of the boys in our class will dance. Now, you take those older men in the ninth grade - " He: "School Valentine party? I'll go if Ihafta. But what are they going to have for food ? Age 16 She: "He wrote the gooiest poem for Valentine's Day. Gosh, I didn't know he could do it - star football player and all that." He: "Wow! Just looking at her makes me feel just like I caught a pass and went for the winning touchdown I" Age 20 She: "See what he gave me for a valentine ? It may be small but he says the stone is of a very distinctive cut." He: "Golly, only 39 more weeks and the ring will be paid for." Age 28 She: "Do you want to help me with the dishes, dear? I promised Sister I'd make heart-shaped cookies for her kindergarten class." He: "Here's a little something for Valentine's Day. I saw it at the drug store during coffee break." : • Age 35 She: "Don't you remember what day it is, dear f He: "Of course, I know what day it is! February 14 - high time I was working on my Income tax return." Age 40 She: "One good thing-about February is that-you can always use a Valentine theme for church and club luncheon decorations." He: "Whoever sent me this comic Valentine sure has a grim sense of humor. I am not that bald on top or that paunchy in the middle." Age 50 She: "I wonder what ever became of Tommy. He had the longest eyelashes 1 I've saved this Valentine he sent me all these years." He: "Now take that Mitzl Jones in high school. Boy, was she a dish!" Age 60 She: "I've knitted sweaters for valentines for all of our grandchildren." He: "Boy, this is the life! One thing about spending the winter in Florida is that you can go fishing on Valentine's Day." Age 75 She: "Thanks for putting up that extra shelf, dear. It's one of the nicest Valentines I ever received." He: "Now, if you'll scratch my back. No, it itches more over here. That's it. Ahhhh!" - o - THERE WAS A MOST WELCOME letter from Marge Dahl this week. She says, "We aren't exactly having Florida weather." I have to admit that we haven't been having "Florida" weather in Sarasota either, it got down to 24 degrees here the other night. That may not be cold in Iowa, but it is here. The cold seeps through to your very bones and the houses aren't built for it. We lost some of our flowers but we're hoping the bushes will come back. However, in the 3 years, 3 months we've been here, we've only had about 40 days of lousy weather, and that includes rain, heat waves and hurricane threats! - o - DURING THE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 6 through 12, people having birthdays Include Vivian Nagel, Jim Martin, Dorothy Funk, Lori Christie, Geraldine Rowley, Michael Rooney, Bill Smith, Jim Finn, Chloe Sheakley, Jim Logan, Craig Taylor, Cindy Cowan, Dr. H, W, Erickson, Al Boekelman, Helen Lukes, Marilyn Yungeberg, Pat Voyles, James Cassel, Charlotte Nash, Steve Sheakley, shannon Lynch, Raymond Langfitt, John Chris- chilles, John Claude, Zelda McGuire, Luann Holt, Dick Post, R.
