Visitors were able to see a wide variety of hobbies during the afternoon. Mrs. James Fries, Burt, displayed her hobby of pastel sketches. Mrs. Fries says she enjoys sketching when her husband fishes. Among the thousands of pencils in Earl Neal's collection you will find some with the history of the Civil War printed on them. Mr. Neal, LuVerne, has been collecting pencils for over 30 years. Mrs. Carl Callies, Titonka, demonstrated liquid embroidery, a new hobby many are trying. Mrs. Robert Bemer, Lakota, displayed colored bottles which she had created from old bottles and a special paint. During the show Mrs. Leonard Warner, Algona, painted and ati- qued a ceramic figurine. Mrs. Clair Bellinger, Lone Rock, gave many people ideas on how they can create arrangements from wood and weeds. Mrs. Wm.Dau, Algona, displayed flower trees, shell and cornhusk trees and goose egg jewel boxes. If you don't want to invest in a hobby then you can do like Mrs. Mary Telkamp, Lakota. Using discarded articles around the home, Mrs. Telkamp "creates things from nothing." This year a special effort was made to include men in the Hobby Show. William Wyatt, Algona, displayed his work with rocks and jewelry. Kenneth Harris, Algona, showed how to create new lamps from old ones. Also among the men displaying at the show was F. C. Soderberg, Burt, who has done some lovely collage pictures. The Four Corner Club participated in the Hobby Show, displaying a wide variety of hobby ideas.
