pniiimiiiiiiiiininiinininiiiiiniiiiiiitminiinniiniiifflniiiiinniiiifliin Evelyn Lost - One small black bolero trimmed with light colored binding which matches my one sun back dress I Well, I may not need it again this year, and I do expect it will be found. There is a lot of laundry to be checked here, but if and when it is found, I don't expect it to be where a friend of mine found her somewhat long lost toothbrush - in a box of old time pictures. - o - This friend told me about her grandmother who was along in years and a huge diamond ring had been given to her. She wore it for the sake of the donors, but the ring was a little large and annoying and often she would take the ring off, lay it down and forget where. The town was small, she was well-known and the ring was always returned to her. One gets accustomed to the feel of a ring and misses it, so this woman was given a cheap ring to replace it and had the real gem put away in a safe place. 1 am reminded of Mrs. Gilles who turned her very pretty diamond rings over to me to sell for her, which I did. She was getting forgetful and said some day they might go down the lavatory drain, or lost anywhere and she figured the money would do her more good than lost diamonds. She, too, missed the feel of the rings, so 1 bought a dime store wedding ring and gave it to her. She got such a laugh when I said, "Now we are engaged." She was afraid she'd lose that ring so I told her not to mind if she did - I'd buy her another. Sure enough - she lost it. - o - Um-m-m what a delicious canteloupe Marie Scuffham brought me the other day. Just like the ones Lizzie Post and I had at my cousins in Houston. So juicy and such delicious flavor. - o - Mr. and Mrs. Jess Dugan, Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Dugan and Mr. and Mrs. Richard Behrends of Davenport attended the Iowa State Fair at Des Moines and are more charmed than ever by Lawrence Welk and his troupe. They say all of them are even better looking than on TV, the program longer and they rated it at the very top in entertainment. Others who were at the Fair gave the same report on Welk. - o - One Algona woman almost got a ' 'get well" card when she wasn't. in the hospital and we are hoping the card can be left on the wall of a store. Of course, it's nice getting mail, but this time she will have to forego the pleasure of mail for the greater pleasure of being snugly at home. - o - Fall is close at hand. Mrs. Lora Seger brought me a beautiful maple leaf the other day. Seems as though summer was short and we looked so hard for May to arrive, greeted the robins with such enthusiasm in March and April, and now we'll soon be bidding them goodbye for another year. Tempus fugits via jet. - o In the first stress of bad news, both persons being so upset, the information on the services for my late cousin, Edwin Cady of Houston, Tex., were in error. The rites were held in the Riverside Memorial Methodist church where he had been organist and choir director for over 20 years. It seems fitting that such an arrangement had been made. The daughter Mary and husband Rubenstein were enroute via plane for a vacation in Mexico and had intended to stop at Houston enroute home to State College, Pa., and tell all about the trip. Alas - the sad news was given them via the American ' Embassy and they returned to Houston immediately. - o - Minnie Long and Chester Long and their children, Gertrude and Chester, Jr., always known as "Chick", are so well-known here I am quoting from a letter Minnie wrote to a friend recently. It will be remembered Chester, Sr. was a member of the grocery firm "Long Bros, and Henderson" and died many years ago. At one time Chick had a photography studio here, then went to California. One night while at a motel, his equipment was stolen and some times bad luck leads to better things, which it did in his case. Quoting — "Gertrude's boys have both been home this summer. Tim, 20, will be a junior at Utah State. He has been working all summer at the cannery to earn his tuition, etc., for next year. Scott is also working at the cannery after six weeks at summer school. He made the honor roll again. He is 22 and will graduate from Sacramento State in February. Then he wants to study in Heidelberg, Germany. He is majoring in economics and minor in, German. Tim is majoring in social science and also takes piano lessons. We had a very happy surprise about three weeks ago. Chick was being sent to Viet Nam for a one year duration by his 'Joint Chief of Staff at the Pentagon, Washington, D. C., where he has been a staff officer the past seven or eight years. He is now stationed at the American Embassy in Viet Nam, working with Henry Cabot Lodge and other staff officers, 12 hours a day including Sundays. I am sure Hattie Wilson would be surprised if she knew the education he has acquired in the last seven years, attending night classes at the University of Maryland. He has earned three masters degrees in business administration, government and politics and had planned a doctorate this year and last June he graduated from War College which he made in three years. All this in addition to the 12 hour a day job at the Pentagon. CflLL TOmOHT Lowest rates in history on Long Distance calls after 8 p.m. and all day on Sunday. Enjoy a telephone visit! Northwestern Bell Would you believe it, he has also mastered three languages, Chinese, German, (which he was working on when I was back there seven years ago), and Spanish. How I wish you could fly out here and see my egg shell collection. I have 65 left out of 149 (she gave a jewel box one to me last Christmas and an upright one with scenery to Marie Murtagh at the same time). They have been exhibited numerous times. (Take notice, Frances Eason) "I wish you could see my 20-inch doll which I call Dolly Madison, in her red velvet and satin gown trimmed in black beaded antique lace. I made the doll with china bisque head, arms and legs and stuffed the body with sawdust." There was more in the letter but I chose the most interesting parts. Minnie lives at Sonora, Calif. - o - ABC is taking a poll on its programs. Entries must be postmarked no earlier than Sept. 13. and no later than Oct. 3. They aren't going to like me very well for I told them in no uncertain terms the only programs worth looking at are Lawrence Welk's, which tops everything on NBC and CBS and I like Holly wood Palace. "Peyton Place" is nauseating, Batman NUTS, and I suggested Masterson be taken off and a GOOD Gene Barry weekly program worthy of his looks and talent substituted. The other networks have programs that could be eliminated, too, which would bring no tears to my eyes. Yes, I'm hard to please. - o - All in agreement, raise your hand. "September Mourn — School days are the happiest days of your life - providing of course your youngsters are old enough to go." - o - August Slagle's fame, his achievements as a farmer of 81 years, and with no help, has reached as far as California and an account of his labors in the fields as well as his wood cutting was run in the San Jose Mercury News, Calif., June 19. WOULD YOU BELIEVE... YOU CAN CUT YOUR LABOR COSTS AS MUCH AS 75% WITH A BRADY 4-ROW CHOPPER? Yes . . . and we can guarantee it! Want proof? Just ask for a FREE demonstration on your farm. No obligation. You'll see in a hurry why BRADY is FIRST in 4-row sales...FIRST in performance in the field. Algona, (la.)

BUSCHER BROS, IMPLEMENT 1015 No. Main ALGONA Well, that helps put Iowa on the map and shows what good stuff our men are made of. He even made papers sent to our soldiers in Germany. - o - The Los Altos, Calif, paper was sent to Marie Grover by her brother-in-law, the late Dr. Wallace's niece, M'-s. Mary Wallace Brew. Mrs. Brew sends a postcard to Miss Grover nearly every week, giving a report on what they are doing, weather, etc., and signs them "The Brews" - just plain "Home Brew."
