l-Algona (la.) Upp«r De« Molno* To««doy, Nov. IS, 1966 Evelyn Nov. 8 - Well you know the old saw "The best laid plans of mice and men" etc. - which is a preface to the information that 1 had intended to see the matinee "The Gospel According to St. Matthew*'. Came such a day! Icy, cold and about as disagreeable as a day could be. * * * I am glad election is over- and the candidates are probably even more pleased. It must be a nerve-wracking experience. "Will I or won't I?" 1 wonder how many bushels of aspirin were consumed. * * * It is too bad Claris Kresensky was hospitalized while the Littles were here. Her late husband Alf and the Little boys were such good friends and she has seen Sherm and Estelle every time they have been here. But they saw her at St. Ann and during her visit by them, a call came from her twin sister Mrs. Rlggs of Barrington, El. Aren't phones wonderful? * * * Dennis, son of Mr. and Mrs. Harley Hanson, is home from Viet Nam after serving 13 months. He has received his discharge and now plans some schooling but hasn't decided where. His parents are leaving soon for Sacramento, Calif, where they go every winter and he will accompany them. Then they come back with the robins. Iowa may not have an ideal climate, but in summer it sure beats Sacramento which gets almost unbearably hot. Estelle Little said she was afraid of our Iowa tornadoes, but I read yesterday a tornado had hit near Los Angeles, so with their earthquakes, landslides, floods, etc., I think Iowa rates pretty well. AS tor Venice, it has always been a mystery to me how those buildings hold up surrounded by water. I don't believe I'd like living there, and now it is a real hazard. And such art treasures in jeopardy. * * * I was so glad to see Maude Lathrop of Salem, Ore. and her sister Ethel Johnson of Humboldt the other day. I have known them so long through Lucille Crose and her parents, they seem like "family" to me. Maude told of her visit with Lucille after she and her daughter Meredith Parsons had come from Hawaii and what a fine time they had with her. Maude doesn't know just how long she will be with Ethel but when ever she is ready to return to Oregon, her son-in-law, Dwight Parsons, will come to accompany her home. The years are treating her kindly, as well as Ethel. * * * I asked about the old house in Dakota City not far from "Aunt Fan's". It was about to collapse years ago when Lucille and I used to go to see her and held a wealth of antiques it was reported, and it looked as though it would live up to that reputation. Last summer when I saw the house, there had been a fire so it was even more on it's last legs. Ethel said the owners had come and taken the last of what they wanted and then the place was condemned, which should have been done years ago, a bulldozer was brought, and the place is now completely gone. * * * Margaret Reid has been visited by her aunt Hattie Robinson of Fresno, Calif., who could not be persuaded to stay beyond a certain length of time. To their pleas she replied "I've got to get home and vote for Reagan." Well, she put it over- he got in, and I'm glad. * * * For the benefit of persons who wish to call on residents at the Good Samaritan Homes and do not know which one their friend or relative is in, there is a list of names posted in the entrances at both places which can be referred to. I have had several persons stop to ask me, and we have new ones here I know nothing kbout, and many at the new home too, and while I am willing to oe as helpful as possible, it will b<? easier for the caller to consuit the bulletin. * * * I have heard of women being "up a tree" but yesterday I ran across one who was "on the roof according to one of the children who answered the phone. I said "Oh, leave her there. I'll call later." I am curious to know what she was doing. Patching the roof maybe! * * * I looked at the picture of little Heather MacDonald and her parents and sadness went over me thinking of her grandfather Wade Sullivan who loved her so much and was so proud of her. And each ye; r adds enjoyment. I think,too,of my cousin Melvin Henderson who would have been an equally doting grandfather to a red haired little Katherine Kierulff. * + * Thanks to the members of the Hobby Club group who gave wreaths to the Good Samaritan homes and the Kossuth county home. A pine cone tree adds much to the reception - dining room on second floor of Good Samaritan Home. Members are Mesdames, Mel Bay, John Dreesman, Burt Harmes, JackHernort, 0. B. Kinden, Pat Jensen, Vic Parsons and Joe Tschetter. * * * Melvin H. Hocklnson, Charles City, died Tuesday of a heart attack just after having balloted. He lived in Algona a number of years ago.when driving the Post Transfer truck between here and Mason City, He moved to Charles City some time,ago, but was formerly from Lake Mills where he grew to young manhood. For the past several years he has been superintendent of school buses.

"" "" J1.69 "" SI.69 SI.49 LIMITED 1IMEI-PRESEHT STOCK OWY WILTGEN JEWELERS 110 E, STATE ALCONA He is survived by his wife, sons Marvin, Donald and Robert. The family is very well known here. * * * Mrs. Hilda Gronwall is in a hospital at San Diego, having fallen and broken her hip. At this writing a daughter, Mrs. Keith Rowley, did not know which hospital she would be in. Mr. and Mrs. Sayles were in the living room and heard a thud in Mrs. GronwalTs room. They hastened to her and found her on the floor. Since the floors are carpeted, it seems likely it is another case of the bone breaking and letting the person fall- a theory advanced now when there are no obstacles fallen over. She left Oct. 29 via plane from Minneapolis, as she had done in the past, seeing her son Robert before leaving, and another son Jerry lives at Fnllerton, Calif., but it seems a pity she is so far from her many friends. On the other hand it is nice to be near daughter and Fullerton is not a great distance from San Diego. * * * Thank you Mrs. Lloyd McKibban, Winnebago, Minn., for your recent letter. She was an aide at Good Samaritan until her her move to Minnesota. Hence the interest in the nurses and patients here. Everything is fine Delores, except we lost our little Mattie McWhorter and "Tillie" Tillinghast, but it was not unexpected. Both were very frail for a long time. "Tillie" preferred being called by her name Ethel, but somehow "Tillie" seemed handier. * * * A chat with Velma Hagg, who said she had received a card from Mrs. Albert Hagg, whose son Frank was in a Minnesota accident recently. All patients are at the Sioux Valley hospital, Sioux Palls, S. D. Frank has improved sufficiently to take food, via mouth now, but his injured vertebra and foot and ankle cannot have anything done until the swelling subsides. The Haggs came from Monrovia, Calif, as soon as they had word of the accident. Velma mentioned stewed hen and homemade noodles for dinner. LOTS of chicken, plenty of broth and just the right amount of noodles! Um-tn-m I am drooling, aren't you? * * * How descriptive - "Volks- wagens sniffing- down the highway," * * * What any housewife knows "The odds and endlesses of housekeeping." Wed 50 Years Mr. and Mrs. Homer Coots, Mt. Auburn, Iowa, will be honored at an open house in observance of their 50th wedding anniversary Nov. 20 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the American Legion hall, Mt. Auburn. They are the parents of five children including Mrs. Amand Dangelser, Algona.
