4-ALOONA (lewd) ADVANC6 MONDAY, MAY 16, 19*5 . W in my VEINS" By MARIAN INMAN H.i^Wi.tKH.H.H^t.rtirH The aflermatli of my temperamental oil furnace's soot explosion, tin and smoke sore throat were lulled by the interesting mail that t have received this week. One of the nicest Utters wai from (net Wolf* who among comments on the weather and her enjoyment of the column sent me a poem that Julie Sartor wrote a number of years ago. It placed third in a state Catholic Daughters of AmeHca poetry contest, Julie has grown to be such a fine young woman, ready to enter college this fall. She calls her poem, "A Visit With God." I stopped at the church To visit today, As I bowed my head, I could hear Him say I'm glad that you came I hope you will stay For your wants and your needs Are just prayers away. Inez, I'll answer your letter soon. Happy Mother's Day. A card from Hertha Dau, telling me they were home from their Florida winter, and be sure to stop for the art supplies she purchased for me in Florida. Mrs. Philip luman (Delorls) and 1 spent an interesting morning with her chattering about sea shells, egg shell craft, to palms and hats: We could have gone on and on and loved every minute of it. She does such exquisite bits of artistry, The Lawrence Menkes of Bancroft visited with the Daus in Florida and Agnes got the bug for the eggshell craft. They are just returned and I haven't called her yet but she and I and Hertha will have some lovely times together. If you haven't teen this art you should invite yourself to visit Hertha Dau who has lovely things and of course after Agnes Monk* and I learn to do some of these things we'll be glad to visit with you over our craft. Sharing and doing things together are bright spots along the path of life. Last night we attended the music recital of young music pupils of St. John school at Bancroft. My young granddaughter, Marjorie Inman, played piano and took part in the newly created string orchestra. A combination of cellos, violas and violins from lull size to half and quarter size depending upon the size of the child. The result is promising and next year we can expect wonderful things. The Frank Ryersons of Burt came with the Bernard Meisters to hear Gene Meister sing a solo, one of the high spots in the program. I visited with the Ryersons after the program and wished there was more time to talk about arts and crafts. Some years ago, Mrs. Ryerson did exquisite bits of carving from soap. I remember in particular a pair of tiny snow birds that looked as though they were carved from ivory. They were real works of art. I know Rowena Ryerson would enjoy the egg shell miniatures with the soul of an •rtist. At a recent, meeting of the Council of Catholic Women at Ayrshire we listened to a refugee from Cuba, Mrs. Ceysa Ramos. She fled Cuba in 1962 with their three daguhters so that the children would be brought up in a country where democracy is taught. The husband had to stay behind but she had hopes he soon could join them. When Castro first came into power the'people of Cuba took heart because he said, "We do not want soldiers, we want teachers." And he did want teachers to teach seeds of Communism in the schools and wean the children away from their parents, Mrs, Ramos' message to us was not to be so complacent in our citizenship resp,onsij)ilit|e r s, as we are 'letting Communism enter into every phase of oui" lives because we want to go along the easy route. It can happen to you, she said. A letter from my little Aunt Barbara this week. She has kept well this winter and is looking forward to my visit as soon as school has closed. Then I'll visit the Cecil Williams and get acquainted. You will recall they are relatives of Mrs. Joseph Lynch Jr. and her mother. We'll have some pleasant times together and I'll visit with you about it on my return. I believe in the joy of our everydays, I believe in the beauty of humble ways, 1 believe that in sharing and caring and giving, We reach the heart of life's living. H. S. B. My best wishes for a speedy recovery to Mrs. Joe Cogley, (Rosella) who is Mr. Inman's sister and to my friend Mrs, John Haupert, (Mildred) from Algona and Burt respectively. These nice warm days will help you and you have the prayers and good wishes of your many friends. And now away from this pleasant visit with you via typewriter. I must don my work clothes, scarf my hair and hie me to washing walls with my niece Deloris. Oil smoke and soot do make havoc of pink walls and my yellow sunshine kitchen but we'll work away at it and with the help of paint after the wash I'll welcome you anytime. A warning, if you come now you will be very welcome but we'll prepare you with a nice suds so you can work along with us and not feel left out, I wouldn't want that to happen for the world. Be seeing you, remember now, yawl come, we'll bake a cake. t DELIGHTFULLY WONDERFULLY MONTHLY (11.75 as Mtenslon) Plus tin ind liutillition.
