In a letter from Aunt Barbara, written December 16, she writes and I quote, "A strange thing happened today. My phone rang and when 1 answered it, a woman asked, "Is this Aunt Barbara?", Of course 1 said 1 was, she said I am one of your neighbors on 7th St., Mrs. Williams. She said she had some thing for me and would be over in about 10 min. It was such terrible weather I wondered why she would go out on such a day to deliver- something. It was a clipping from an Algona paper. She has relatives of hers living there who had sent the clipping to her with this written on it. "I wonder if you might know this person?" Aunt Barbara goes on to say they had a pleasant visit and that I must meet her when I return to Fargo. She said, "I believe the name of the woman who sent Mrs. Williams the clipping is a Mrs. Lynch. Maybe you know her. The world is small." My Aunt also goes on to say, "Thank you for the write up, but I think I am not quite as nice as you make me out to be. Maybe a childs memory. Which is typical, 'Aunt Barbara-ism.' Meeting Opal Nygaard while Christmas shopping in Algona on the 22nd, we both agreed that it was fun not to be so prepared that we missed the last little flurries of shopping and the fun of greeting old friends. A thing about this before Christmas time every one smiles at each other. There's a sort of bond that reaches out and all of us are kin. The New Year is at the door. May it be a happy healthful year for all of us and may we, "Dare go forth with a purpose true, to the unknown task of the year that's new." The wisdom in this statement of Abraham Lincoln's might well be adopted as a credo at this New Year: "Having chosen our course without guile and with pure purpose let us renew our trust in God and go forward without fear and with manly hearts." On January 1st., 1735, Paul Revere was born. Wonder what he d think of the world if he were to come back today. He could send his message by radio or TV and need not repeat his famous ride. What would he warn us? I feel sure he would say, "We are losing our Freedom, we are losing our freedom." "We are placing greater arbitrary power over individuals in the hands of government boards and administrators. Be warned, freedom is the maximum of self-government finally becoming automatic, and the minimum of government from without finally reduced to the vanishing point. Freedom and individual liberty, are the keystones of the American system." Poor man, I don't think he'd linger with us very long once he had a glimpse of how we have confused our situation. Lincoln's problem was the preservation of the Union against a southern oligarchy. Theodore Roosevelt's problem was the giant monopolies of his day. Taft's problem was the union monopoly, and today we have bureaucratic bigness with which to contend. If freedom as our forefathers gave it to us is to be preserved, it must be a type of balanced freedom which keeps every segment of the economy in its proper place. J It's natural that we wonder what the year nas in store fy u . s - . fher( r ? re e *P erts who can guess regarding the DO- htical financial and scientific progress or changes during the next twelve months.

We must be unafraid and confident that the new year holds in store for us the best of everything if we prove ourselves worthy of such reward. We must venture into the new year with faith as did Abraham, who followed this instruction as recorded in the Bible; "When he was called, he obeyed to go out unto a place which he was to receive for an inheritance; and' he went out not knowing whither he went." ^ Ex-Livermore, Swea City woman dies Funeral services for Mrs. Francis (Lillian) Treat, 90, of Swea City, were held Monday afternoon at the First Baptist church'with the Rev.
