(UDM Polaroid Flashfoto) IIIIIIIIHIIMIH Throw rugs is a good name .for those little mats scattered here and there In strategic places - places where there Is more wear on the carpeting, or on polished floors. First you throw them here and there, then they throw you here and there, and now Mrs. Julius Peterson is going to THROW them out, regardless of the saving they may do to her carpeting. She tripped on one March 26 and broke her wrist - the right one, of course, to make the injury as uncomfortable as possible and leave her more handicapped then had it been the left one. In spite of it, she and her husband went to Royal the following day to spend it with their daughter Lucille and husband, Harold Anderson. Well, if Maggie Pannkuk a few years ago could take a broken wrist to Florida, Mary can take hers to Royal. They will heal just as quickly in one place as another. * * * Well, you've seen the TV man who takes his sinuses to Arizona. I know a person who is taking a couple of \very small pressure spots to Florida via infra red light applications and getting excellent results. She can't convince any doctor the fat she doesn't need frontally should be transferred posteriorly. * * * Having written about the letter from Mrs. Delores Walker of Natchez, Miss, inquiring about the Crose and Erickson families, it has come to me that the name of "Thomp" Grose's son was Joy. Just in case someone does know about the Erickson or Erricson, Sever of Norway and taken from an 1870 census I will mention the names she gave Sever, Anna Erric born in Norway, Annie, Lena, Herman, Julia, Ole In Wisconsin and Lewis and Mary of Iowa. * * * Enclosed with the letter was one from Myrtle johannsen, who with her husband Hans is spending the winter at Phoenix. Of interest to Algonans was this paragraph. "Hazel Vera and Mabel Livingston came to call on us the other evening, Mrs. Livingston doesn't live too far from us at Apache Junction. Lela peck Stewart Mendenhall's daughter is being married in phoenix tomorrow," i wonder if it is Leona she was writing about. "purwQod" (the Jo- hanngen's son at Waverly) is remodeling the store while we are gone, Hans hasn't played too much golf. }t has been too cold," * * * Alaska, where he is in service, have a son born Feb. 18 and he has been named Charles Todd, a husky ten-pounder, born three days before his parents' wedding anniversary and four days after his father's birthday. His father has been called "Chuck" most of his life, the new baby will probably be Charles and Charley will probably be left to Charles number I in his mother's first, famiiy.'•"We'li,»"who ever heard anything but "Chuck" Nicoulin, Charley Murtagh and Charles Lathrop ? * * * I have a timely suggestion to one of Algona's popular matrons, "read before entering." She might get into serious trouble I * * * • We have two Vivas here. One is Viva Giddings of the LuVerne area, one a former cor respondent for the Wesley paper. One is pronounced Veyeva and one Veeva. I learned which is which, it's Veeva Lease and Veyeva Giddings. * * * First flower news - Mrs. Earl Sheppard says her tulips are peeping out and Bernice Schoby says her crocuses are up. Hurray for spring! Anyone have a first mosquito to report ? * * * More reports of memories of "If the Man in the Moon were a Coon" from Paul Palmer and Mrs. Leo Nurre phoned me from Whittemore that her mother, Mrs. Walsh of Lone Rock used to sing it to her. * * * Along with the other "firsts", I'll report a picnic held at the Ambrose call State park Feb. 27 by the Ed Gilmore and Nat Bangs families. They report it a lot of fun, plus a lot of chicken, plenty of fires to keep warm and even the very light snowfall didn't dampen their enthusiasm. * * * about confusion - Who is going to taow who ii being talked to? Charles palmer was married % little over a year a$o to a widow with three oMWreo named p«iy, jeajws and Charles, Now she and Charles Palmer, Fairbanks, What's the world coming to ? Boys wearing earrings and girls wearing pants I Yet, I was reading one of the Apostle Paul's letters in which he admonished women to wear long hair and men to cut theirs, yet the pictures of Christ always show shoulder length hair and all the men of the Bible are pictured with hair that length. Paul, a bachelor, had a lot to say about things of which he was ignorant - like an old maid or bachelor telling parents how to raise their children, * .*• * gada and Yallo Naudain were at Elmore, recently epewiin* a day with her sister, Blanche and Clarence MaJand, There is a hedge with berries and Zada said the cardinals were having a feast, some of the birds were different colored and she couldn't figure the whys and wherefores. Guess we'd, better get a bird book and further our education. I'll bet Frank Ryerson could tell us. * * * Marie Ogren asked me the other day where the Jim Wychors are now. I don't know. Who does and will call her? He roomed with her when he first came here to manage KLGA and she thought he was such a fine fellow. She has had Christmas greetings from him from time to time but didn't this year. Editor's note - Jim is employed by a station at Worthington, Minn, * * * A\iray goes' another of my favorite TV programs according to reports from ABC in this morning's paper (March 2), Ozzie and Harriet Nelson. Yet, some darned old western or goofy program will be left. * * * 1 don't know when Alice Anderson of Bancroft was brought here but I met her yesterday. When I asked her if she had known my uncle Bert Goddard her face lighted up and she smiled, "Oh yes" and said they went to the same church.. * * * Thank you, Helen Lusby Witmer, for your note. Where have all the years gone since I knew you as a little girl ? * * * Anybody going there ? Flashed in plane landing at Las Vegas "Fasten your money belts."
