6-Algona (Id.) Upper 0*1 Mo!n*« Thursday, October 6, 1966 iiiniiiiiiiniiimniiiniiininniiiiiiniiiimiiiiiiiiiinininiimiiinnnit 3 A ^* ^M • . .by Evelyn \ lifflflittiiiniiiiniiiiiiiiiiniiim^^ I was happy to have Margaret Pannkuk (Mrs. C. A.) of Fairmont as guest Wednesday. It has been quite awhile since we have seen each other and believe me, we covered a lot of territory, conversationally. * * * 1 am gratified to know people read my column as evidenced by the numbers vho have called me to remark on my criticism of Garry Moore, all agreeing with me. * * * The Republican dinner was a huge success I've been told and by no less person than Oliver Carlson who is very active In politics. He and Sen. Jack Miller are friends and the Carlsons were proud to have him as guest at their home. Unfortunately, Mr. Miller was unable to be an overnight guest and had to go on to Des Moines, but he was greatly enjoyed while here and he was pleased with the cordiality extended him. * * * The lot across the street north look quite nude with the little store and quonset gone. The quonset was moved Saturday and I learned a lot about how the work was done. Today 1 watched the store being wrecked by a bulldozer. At any rate, great portions of the building were moved in one operation, the debris shoved to one side, and tonight, the lot looks quite empty. It is a lovely corner. I am wondering about a big tree. I am hoping it won't have to be cut down, but Tin not betting on it and a few men were giving it a close scrutiny. * * * of the items was mingled with sadness when I thought of the work my late cousin Melvln Henderson had done over the years helping make it a success. He gave much time and labor for the citrus company with which he was associated. * * * Edna Stebbins, Melvin's mother - In - law, wrote to me the other day. Such a nice, newsy letter. She has moved from an apartment to a house at Pomona. All she has to do to have fresh lemons, oranges and white figs Is to go out in her yard and pick them. She also has a couple of hard maple trees that have begun to shed their leaves and she is really enjoying taking care of her yard, leaves and all. So glad to hear from you, Edna. * * ;: A Rotary bulletin and card came frorn Glenn Naudain the other day! His card said "I expect Iowa is getting beautiful fall weather now (Yes, indeed, you said it Glennl) The last couple of days we have received four inches of rain. It cooled off to GO degrees and it feels good." * + * All over town, cellars are being dug - even saw where the Charles LaBarre house will be located. And the trees - how perfectly lovely they are. A riot of colors and what a beautiful little city we have. * * * these "gems". How about it "When a fellow gets old it's no problem to resist temptation; the problem is to find some." In front of a church "Interested in going to heaven ? Get your flight training here." 1 wonder how our prim little Miss Coate would have taken this - Proud parent, on meeting the new first grade teacher: "I am very happy to know you Miss Smith. I am the father of the twins you are going to have next September." Swea City V.F.W. Auxiliary Works On G.I. Gifts SWEA EAGLE - The VFW Auxiliary met at the Post Home to make ditty bags for the Red Cross, to be sent to our boys in Viet Nam for Christmas. The ladies made and filled 20 bages through the efforts of Auxiliary President, Mrs. Bruce Graham, Hospital chairman, Mrs. Amery Charlson, Mrs. Earl Kvamsdale, Mrs. Robert Holm, Mrs. Edwin Berggren and Mrs. Kenneth Brones. The Auxiliary received an award for 100% reporting for hospital work the past year, also an award for 100% participation in the Health and Happiness fund. Whittemore Man Home After Navy Service Chris Jensen was brought back from St. Ann today, having been taken there to have the pin removed from the hip he fractured several months ago. I asked him if it was shown to him. I said, "I'd have wanted a look at it". I'm not sure the doctor would nave 1 ' granted my wish. * * * Quite frequently people are mistaken for someone else and such is the case with a woman who is convinced she sees Mrs. Gilles up town nearly every day. Well, I only wish it were true, but Mrs. Gilles who is here at Good Samaritan has not even been down stairs for over a year and it is at least four since she has been able to go up town. A year ago Aug. 14, she was helped down from her room to mine, the year before that Mabel Hutzell, Velma Haag and I took her for a ride which she did not enjoy as much as the one she had with us the year before. So you see it is utterly impossible that it is she who has been down town. * * * The other day station KGLA was playing my beloved "Fascination" in cha - cha time. It just ruins that perfectly lovely waltz so I called the station and expressed my views and asked if they had it in it's proper rythm. Just a few moments later there came my "love" in three-four time. Thank you KGLA. * * * The Fred Geigels are a couple held in high esteem, as witnessed by the number of persons who attended their golden wedding anniversary Sept. 25. My parents knew the Hackmans(Leota's family) and her aunt Phronie was a close friend of my mother. Her name was Mullica but I don't remember her married name. It was Leota's uncle Albert Hackman who made my doll furniture which is now on exhibition in the Historical Society rooms. What a proud little girl I was of that furniture, and the envy of all my little playmates I might add. * * * A group of us had dinner together yesterday. I am fond of chicken and enjoyed the two legs fried perfectly. Then when I got home, we had creamed chicken for supper. I was too full of dinner to care much about supper, so a glass of milk at bed time sufficed and today, having saved my serving of creamed chicken, it is being warmed and served me this noon. Smart, am I? Well, I agree with youl *,* + .-• •<- Yeah - I've had this trouble too, with an old Underwood typewriter I used so many years a key that stuck. A friend of mine was using her machine the other day and her T acted so abominably she finally went to pen. * * * Thank you Edna Stebbins for the "Pomona Progress" paper with the many fine pictures oi the Los Angeles County Fair. But my pleasure in looking at the pictures and reading of some After dinner yesterday, three of us covered "Main Street' . It was the kind of day the warm stores felt good. And remember such a short time ago how good the cool stores felt? I even wore a hat, quite heavy coat, a fur neck pice, a robe over my lap and gave in to gloves which I hate. I am out so little I have become a "cream puff and that wind was darned chilly. * * * We met Heinle Stebritz and had quite a chat. He and one of the women with me had lived in Bancroft years ago and dug up a lot of mutual friends to talk about. Then the conversation drifted to music and for the life of us, we couldn't think of the name of a super banjo player, Lawrence Welk has featured at various times. It took the Bancroft woman to remember and she phoned me - Eddy Peabody — 1 haven't had time to call Heinle yet. But perhaps by this time he has thought of it. I'll check later. Right now I am typing frantically to meet a "dead line". All of which goes to show when you "Play" a little and get out of schedule, it has to be made up somehow. * * * I was interested in hearing Helen Dingley's report on "Dr. Zhivago" which she, Mrs. Joel Herbst, Mrs. Marie Kunz and Mrs. Don Hutchison saw Wednesday in Des Moines. Fran Herbst suggested that I read it - so I probably will. I won't tell you Helen's ideas. Let everyone go and see for themselves when the opportunity arises. Two that will always stay in my mind as the nicest, sweetest movies are "Little Boy Lost" with Bing Crosby and "Love in the Afternoon" with Gary Cooper and Audrey Hepburn. And from the latter came my wonderful tune "Fascination" . * * * Doris Culbertson is home again after completing a course in typing and shorthand at the Tobin business college at Fort Dodge. She is hoping for prompt employment and considering that she had polio years ago which affected a leg a little, she chose a course that doesn't require too much standing and walking. * * * The Rotary Bulletii. contained - o - The Ed Frerichs were recent Saturday overnight guests at the home of her sister, the Lyle Westfalls at Graettinger, Uien at South Sioux City, Neb. were Sunday guests with her brother and family, the Lloyd Baldwins.
