fta.) Uppv DM f«t» If, 1*66 Mr. anfi Mrs. OHie TSasby spent last Santo} inDet Moines attenfi- ing a meeting al nursing borne managers anShaaring discourses OE medicare. This couple nafl very litae fret time and are constantly being summoned to MUST meetings. Even tbe trip to Colorado last summer vas a ' 'command appearance" of the various Good Samaritan Managers aiifl 1 Siink 1 could best describe tne meetings as "workshops." The only rea2 vacation they bad vac after Christmas vlien they went to Albuquerque to visit ibeir daughter and family. They sure needed thai little time off for tbey bad worked so bard before Christmas, bouse cleaning, making arrangements for Christmas parties for the residents, and Mrs. Nasby even vent so far as to take borne curtains to wash and iron and help pat them up in the various rooms. Ko one who does not live bere cannot imagine the constant work to be done and over seen. And 1 might add there is a lot of patience and understanding needed, of which botb Mr. and Mrs, Nasby bave an abundance. Can you ipmgfr"? thunder and ?ightniTig iii February in Iowa? Wen, it DID happen. 1 wasn't dreaming. The weather got a little mixed and we bad "spring 5 ^ 1 bad just awakened and was turning to face tne wall when a flash came and 1 thought it was from a car on the north road - then the following thunder convinced me it was NOT a car, but lightning. My grandfather Cadynever swore. Tbe nearest to it was "thunder and lightning/' or "thunder and blazes/' 1 bad a pet bantam rooster 1 brought in the bouse occasionally and 1 set Mm on the back of a kitchen chair, Grandpa was engrossed in a book when fee rooster let out a good bealthy crow. Grandpa, startled and brought back to earth from Ms reading, looked over bis specs and exclaimed, "thunder and I" and went back to bis reading. Some Mrs. Johnson called me during my rest period the other day. A nurse happened to be close in the nail and answered the phone. But the woman neglected to say which Mrs. Johnson and there are more Johnsons than any other name in the directory. Mrs. Edna Suits' birthday was observed Feb. 8. She is a second floor resident, hence the observance on the second Tnesr day of the mouth. Mrs, Clifford Young and Mrs. Emma Dreyer were hostesses, assisted by Mrs. Evetyn Bickert. Evelyn says her father, Harry Bode, bas impoved so much it is expected be will be back bere from St. Ann in a short time. It is wonderful be has made so good a recover}'. care. Mr. Giddings, a retired mailman from LuVerne, comes each week to take Ms wife home for the weekend. He came in for a little chat the other day. What a pity it is that now when be could devote so much time at borne with Ms wife, she is too frail to be there except at short intervals as she needs nursing * * * Another caller I was glafl to see was Kafberine McC&H Griffith. She was bere to see ber mother, Mrs. 5eH MsCaH, who has now been dismissed Irott SL Ami and bas gone to Atlantic wift Katharine. Tne Griffiths are to be living in Omaha and are having an apartment added to the borne for Mrs. McCaU to occupy. Ber borne bere is lor sale and sbe wiD be taking ber iundture there. 1 mean as much of It as sbe wHI need for her apartment. I knew ber late husband, Mart, for so many years andlreqnenQy Fexnely Meoulin, Mart and I got together at Ms borne. .Be played tne harp and with .a first and second violin comiijnation, we bad a lot of pleasure. Mart organized an orchestra and there was always a harp solo - a waltz - and bow we did enjoy 1L Sometimes it would be a "Moonlight" waltz and an electric Tiigfrt colored and dimmed, would revolve - a simulated moon. And darn the scientists for fating fbe glamor from the moon. WeE, HI not let it change my thinking and my romantic ideas. What is lovlier than a "harvest moon?" * * * Think of the lovely moon songs - "Shine on Harvest Moon'^ "Moonlight Bay" and "Moon Over Miami". And an oldie I'll bet only Zada Branson and I would remember, "H the Man in the Moon "Were a Coon." Anyone who recalls that one let me know. And don't forget, "Moonlight and Sosss," another lovely] Well, *tis said "It pays to advertise" and I believe it. 1 mentioned bow bard it was for me to eat breakfasts, but later in the forenoon I'd be nearly starved. Lo and behold - Along comes a lovely box of delicious cookies and spiced nuts from Marie Grover and a card telling me sbe was a "fellow sympathizer" anfl sbe was tapfe""^ to relieve my needs." And Marg Dahl brought me a jar of pickles - so thank you both. They were nice Valentines." * * * I don't know a tMng aboutlabor and companies, but I wonder if a law couldn't be passed that when fee company goes a long way to meet demands of agitators who refuse to budge, why can't fee form fire them and get «H»eB willing to go to work at v*jjie pay fee company feels it can pay. I'd like to see feese "nuts*' out after reasonable raises are offered, fire every last one of them and it would be a mighty easy thing to replace fee "bolder-outers". Algona bas been so proud of industry, new families coming bere, fee town was on if s way up and now some are leaving town to get jobs because they have to LIVE. Time was when I was sympafe- etMc to unions, but no more. Too many strikes of vital concern to fee country have erased ever}' kind feeling I bad. It is Mgb time for some legislature, strict but fair. And strikes are unrBapnnahlp nine times OUt ol ten, and in fee long run, lose more tea ttey gain back is mooths. Well, to much tor a Toman's point of view! * * * Hairy Bode is back witti us. He vas brought bere Feb. 10 alter several days at St. Ann. I was baring m/ nap and slept so soundly I didn't know when be passed m;* door. A fine idea if it would work. On mail box "Post no bills."
