One h*t te fo way, way beck to remember things at they The weather is beautiful and we are having a nice time of reminiscing with old school chums, marveling at the changes and talking about our families. I efid not call the Cecil Williams until today, Frid»v, and •t they do not answer, expect they are at the lake for th« weekend. 111 try to cell them before I return home. You will recall they are cousins of Mrs. Joseph Lynch Jr. to whom Mrs. Thurston, Mrs. Lvnch's Mother sent one of my columns about Aunt Barbara. The Williams live just a block over from Aunt Barbara and they see each other occasionally. I returned from the funeral of Ross Inman at Watertown. S. D., to Aberdeen with Hale Inman and family and visited with them a day before going to Fareo and Aunt Barbara. Toured the Inman farm and hatcheries and drove bv the famed Fischer home. The farm the Fischers have purchased is 800 acres and they are building a beef herd as the land is better for grazing than cropoing. They are landscaping the acres for miles and one of these years it will be a place of beauty, a lovely setting for the fine new home and nice large family. The winter here was hard on paint and Aunt Barbara is havinf her house scraped and repainted. The plate glass people ere hero doing something to the combination windows, carpenters are putting in louvers for added ventilation, the bowse next door is going through some face lifting and this i* tbo busiest, noisiest street around. Spring cleaning is the order of tbo day. I have had a nice visit with Mrs. Henry Stninc via phone. They are well and say hello to the Bancroft folks they know. I may get to see them but am not sure as we are leading a busy pace here. I think we bewilder our Aunt Barbara. Aunt Barbara has oiven me some more old hat pins to add to my collection. They really are interesting and with the,wider crowns of hats of yore lonq pins were needed. My cousins and I have had pleasure going through boxes of clothing of long ago. Aunt Barbara's wedding gown, old hats and capes. The clothes were so feminine and made with such detail. You couldn't make up one of those in a day or less as we do now.

As we relive some of these memories of our race along lifos ways, I wonder if we really saw how wonderful they were. Seems like then we were thrilled only with the race through time. Now we take time to savor and contemplate the steps we made along the miles of life. We take a little time now and look about and the journey along the returning miles is paced slower. We take time to linger, to play and we come to know that what really counted was the loveliness on the way. If I think that Fargo has changed in the past several years, I'll have surprises in store for me when I return in the fall, for urban renewal plans are already tearing down old land marks and doing away with what we called, Shanty Town. And yet I do wonder where all those people will be moved to. I hope it will prove to better their lives, but I do wonder. As my cousins and I retrace the years of our youth, I am glad we had opportunity to enricnen our days so we have such pleasant memories. And so with Mary O'Connor, I say, I love the joy of planting To reap in future springs, The memory of my childhood And old familiar things. Corwtfh — Mr. and Mrs. Ce- ; cil Zweifel of Wilmore.
