Enter**! «s Mcond el«w matter M tht po«totfk* M Alton*. Iowa (MUD. Kov. 1. im. utwJtr Act of ConcrtM of March J. Itit iSTAIUSNlO 114$ Ml TIME HAS A WAY OF SNEAKING up on me. Here it is colurm night and I haven't the slightest idea of a subject. There are a lot of miscellaneous thoughts scattered around, so mi.ybe I can collect some of them. - o UNTIL RECENTLY THE MAIL box has been terribly vacant after the gorgeous Christmas bounty. But after stewing for nearly two weeks over how the wedding went and what was happening to the bride and groom and the rest of our family, we received not only letters from the happy pair but also from BUI and Kathy and both Grandmas. - o MARY ANN AND DAVID arrived in Tucson without too much trouble with snows enroute. They are nicely settled at 307 E. Blacklidge in an apartment, all furnished (excepting for their lovely wedding presents) and at a price even less than they'd planned on with their Air Force income 1 Mary Ann says, "The desert is really pretty with huge cactus and mountains all around.' - o- ONE OF THE CHRISTMAS letters that arrived late was from Thelma and Ken Knudsen who had a good reason for the delay. Their first grandchild, Timothy Mark arrived 5 1/2 weeks before he was expected and Thelma had been in New Jersey to be with them two weeks. The baby is the son of their eldest daughter, Karen, and they'll be moving back to Minneapolis soon so the Knudsens will be able to see the grandson often. CThey live in Des Moines). I envy them. Their younger daughter, Linda, was graduated from SUI in June and was married in September. They'll be moving back to Des Moines soon. - o WHICH BRING US, NATURALLY TO the Grandma Brags Department: William Mark Sigsbee, at six months, has five teeth, weighs 19 Ibs., 6 oz., and is 27 1/2 inches long. He sits up rather well, according to his parents, and is becoming quite mobile. He rolls around the house and gets stuck under the furniture. The other day his parents heard a yell, but couldn't find William. He was stuck behind the foot stool and under a chair and completely out of view. BUI says, "Pretty bad when you can't find your own son in your own living room." Kathie has found the best way to keep him occupied is to set a smaU mirror up on the floor and set the baby in front of it. He sits there and smiles at himself. They sent some more pictures, Just proving what I've always known that the baby is unusually handsome. BUI adds, "I guess like every new papa I am a little over-anxious to have him get interested in something I like. Recently, I have been trying to find suitable fishing tackle to start him out on I" - o MY MOTHER WROTE JUST as she was leaving for a second bout of cartaract surgery. Naturally we are concerned, and some of it is for selfish motives. Her letters always contain little extra items that we wouldn't otherwise hear or read in the paper. Now it will probably -be a while before she can write. Sheen- oloied some pictures of the wedding - the first we've seen and we were delighted to get them. - o - MOM SAID IN A RECENT phone call that we might be seeing some people from Algona - the Lowmans, and the Andreasens from Burt. We haven't heard from them yet and do hope we haven't missed them. There are gobs of tourists in town - it's almost worth your life to drive around. But we who live here all year get into sort of a rut and forget how many sights there are to see. For months, I've been routinely going the three miles to my Job, coming home and going to the shopping center; Father's routine is more varied - he goes all over the county every day and never two days alike. So last Sunday, I twisted his arm a bit and he took me on a long ride. I don't think I'U ever get tired of looking at the water in the Gulf and the bays, or at the variety of flowers. And Sarasota is really growing at least eight high-rise apartments since my last ride and hundreds of houses where there was only Jungle a few months ago. Makes me wonder where all the people come from, where they made their money, and how I could do likewise to get my hands on some of it. - o- THE ROBINS ARE IN FLORIDA fuU force right now. For about two weeks they were out on the keys near here and stripped almost every berry off of all the bushes. They descend in huge flocks. This year, they say, the birds are extra hungry after their long trip from the northland. And it being such a dry year here, they find fresh water scarce. There's a little lake at the church where I work and several Florida Holly trees near there. One morning the trees were loaded with red berries; after the robins came it was Just green leaves. It is almost time for the mocking birds to tune up. Their song is reaUy something. - o- I GET A GREAT DEAL OF kidding at my Job about always bragging about Iowa. I teU them my Iowa friends think I brag too much about Florida. At last count, there are at least 20 people here who were born in, or who once lived in Algona. Pius that the president of our women's association, Kay Shadduck, is from Cedar Rapids (her mother was a schoolmate of Nell Larson), the director of the day school is from Davenport, the ex-choir director from Bettendorf, another gal used to be head nurse at University Hospitals, Iowa City, and a dear friend of mine, Ruby Pilkey, is a long-time acquaintance of May Schenck. There are also people we know formerly from Ft. Dodge and Titonka. - o - THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS FOR Tuna Pie with a rice crust. 1 cup uncooked regular rice 2 tbsp. butter legg 2 - 7 oz. cans tuna, drained and flaked 1/4 tsp. salt 1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg 3/4 cup grated Swiss cheese 2 eggs 3/4 cup scalded milk Snipped green onions Cook rice.

Then choose the year. The decision to purchase a Cadillac—regardless of model or year— is the wisest move a motorist can make. Cadillac's remarkably luxurious interiors and superb driving qualities are unmatched. Cadillac's renowned durability, craftsmanship and advanced engineering also gives it long-lasting value—and its owner loyalty ranks highest in the world of luxury motoring. You, of course, are best prepared to judge which model is most suited to your needs and your budget. But avoid compromise with a lesser make. For no other car at a comparable price 1.1967 Coupe deVille 3. 1965 Fleetwood Brougham can provide you greater pleasure and satisfaction than the Standard of the World. And, of course, most previously owned Cadillacs — even those several years old— feature a complete complement of conveniences such as power brakes, steering, windows and seats to provide more driving pleasure than many of today's new cars. See your authorized dealer and let him help you select your favorite model . . . whether it be new or previously owned. Then all the wonderful rewards of Cadillac ownership can be yours as soon as today or tomorrow. 2. 1966 Sedan deVille 4. 1964 Oupe da Villa Standard of theWorld VAH* of [iCtiU'iCl CoO .<iC SKK YOl'K AUTHORIZED CADILLAC DEALER'S ATTRACTIVE SELECTION OF NEW AND USED CADILLACS SCHULTZ BROS. 1011 SOUTH PHILLIPS ALGONA, IOWA
