Algono, (la.) Upp«r DM Moicm Tuwday, May 10, 1966 ^ ._^ __^ ^_ . _^, Mother's Day Gift From Hawaii In Vials Of Water Mrs. Gail Towne of Algona received one of the most unusual Mother's day gifts from her daughter and husband, Capt. and Mrs. Robert Clapper, stationed in the army in Honolulu, Hawaii. It was a tropical flower arrangement "Paradise of Hawaii" consisting of brilliantly colored Bird of Paradise blooms with Anthuriums and contrasting stately Ti leaves. The Bird of Paradise is like a bird poised in flight, with blazing orange wings springing from a silvery green sheath. It is especially found in the dewy valleys on the island of Oahu. The Anthurium is the "Sweetheart flower of the Paradise Isles". Its heartshaped flower from which emerges a knurled center of contrasting hue makes an effect, - exotic and unique. The Ti leaf is a satin, oblong leaf and plays an important part in the life of Hawaiians. It is used for hula skirts, wrapping food, as table coverings as well as being decorative. It grows prolifically amid the volcanic mountains of Hawaii. The flowers arrived .Friday, special delivery, air mail in perfect condition. Each stem was encased in a glass vial containing water. They are not only beautiful but are very sturdy and at first sight, look waxed or artifical. District Court Term; JB,H Suit Is Filed Petit court jurors reported here at 1 p. m. Monday, instead of 10 a. ra. as originally ordered, to begin the May term of district court, with Judge Joseph Hand presiding. First case on the docket is a damage matter, Youngwirth vs. State Farm Mutual Ins. Co., which was'originally heard here and a directed verdict given.

Steussy, plaintiff, is seeking $25,000 damages for injuries she sustained in May, 1964, from the Columbia Hall Association, defendant. The plaintiff leased the defendant's building to exhibit and sell antiques. While attempting to open a door of the structure, she claims she was thrown backward and fell against an auto parked nearby. She claims negligence and asks the amount for severe and permanent injury.
