Let's look Into LIVED IN PART OF HER HOME Los Angeles, May 21—1 was interested to read the account of the 70th anniversary celebration of the Baptist church. Anything concerning the early history o£ Algona brings back many memories. My mother was remarried In 18(16. Before that, the Rev. William Liggett and his family, which consisted of his wife and three children, Mary, Leslie Travis, and Isadora, lived In the front part of our house one winter, my mother, sister, and I living In the back part. The front part cnslsted of a living room, then called the "front room," a bedroom, and two rooms upstairs, while the back part consisted of kitchen, pantry, and "bed sink," the latter a sort of jog with just about room Cor a bed. It, was a custom at the time to share one's house with others. That was a cold winter, and I remember as if It were yesterday ho\v lonely my mother was, especially on a Sunday afternoon, and the bleak vista wo'looked out upon through a back window. It was not customary then to go visiting on Sunday, and there was little other entertainment. No wonder that we children went to church, to all the funerals, to teachers' institutes, and what else was doing. I remember having heaijd |M,r. Jeffries preach; also Mr. Legget, but that must have been after his pastorate, for I was only two at the time he served the church. Seating Demanded Real Religion. At one time i n the late seventies the Baptists had only seven members. Both the Baptists and the Congregationalists were then zealous Christians. They had to be, to go regularly to church and sit in the uncomfortable seats with straight backs. The Congregationalist seats were a little the worst, for they were so narrow. Of course I wasn't much interested' in the preaching-, especially by the time the minister got to his thirdly, or fourthly; but I liked the singing of Mrs. Stacy (Durst and Nate Smith, and J. B. Jones. For the rest I usually interested myself in gazing at flowers on the women's hats and imagining how they look if they were all put together. Mrs. Frank Rlst, afterward Mrs. L. H. Smith, wore purple flowers, and Mrs. Stough had pink flowers on her bonnet. Friend is Killed in France. Brigadier Gen. Robert H. Dunlap, an account of whose death appeared in this morning's Times, gave my daughter away in marriage at Peking seven years ago. He was asked to perform the service because my son-ln-Iaw, the late Walter C. Whiffen, had been ordered to Japan by the Associated Prese. This was just after an earthquake there. General Dunlap was a friend of Gene- vleve's uncle, the late Admiral Bowyer. The general was killed In a landslide in France. Typical of him was the fact that he died in the performance of a gallant hero's role. Seeing a woman in danger, he attempted to rescue her, but both were caught and buried under tons of earth. When they were excavated the general was found dead, but his body was braced to protect the woman. His wife was near-by and witnessed the tragedy. Former Algoman's Son Honored. (There Is a break in Mrs. Sawyer's letter here, doubtless because she failed to enclose a clipping. She seems to be referring to a declamatory or other speech contest In which Carl Dodge Jr., son of Carl Dodge, the racing horse promoter in the state of Nevada, t'ook part. Young Carl is a great-grandson of the late Capt. D. D. Dodge, a grandson of the late W. H. Reed, great- nephew of F, A. Corey and • Mrs. J. O. Paxson, and a second cousin of Mrs. D. P. Smith. Carl won sec Methodist Church at Corwith M ANY WHO STUDY this picture will be surprised to learn that such a modern church building graces so small a town as Corwith. The church was built a dozen or so years ago by the Rev. G. J. Poppen- heimer, now of Ruthven. The addition at the rear has Sunday school rooms upstairs and down. The choir loft is a raised alcove in the auditorium. 11 NEW MEMBERS JOIN GOLF CLUB Eight new club privilege and five new associate members have been added to the Country club list so far this season.

The golf grounds have been rounded into excellent condition for this time of the year under the supervision of Albert Ogren, president o'f the club, and chairman of the grounds and greens committee Lack of rain has made some of the greens and fairways spotty, and as usual dandelions are causing trouble with lost balls. The clubhouse was opened last week, and the number playing the course Indicates that, this will be one of the busiest seasons the club has enjoyed.

GLENN YEAROUS TRIAL POSTPONEDTIIL FALL "Trial of Glenn Yearous, former Glldden school superintendent, charged by Miss Edith Cairns, of Glldden, of being the father of her child, Sioux City's cornfield baby, has been postponed until next September.

"Harold Cairns, brother of Miss Edith Cairns, Is serving a five-year sentence In the reformatory at Anamosa for abandoning the 'baby.

We all want pretty much the same fine qualities — and we. want them at a price which makes the purchase of the car a good investment. YOU will find this combination in the Pontiac — tlial fine General Motors car. Thus, if it's a damp day when you first drive a Pontiac you will notice how snug and dry it is within the body. It's the same with heat, cold and traffic noise—because Pontiac'* fine Fisher bodies are tightly insulated for your comfort and protection. Appreciating the deep, form-fitting seats, you will note also the absence of road (hocks and vibration. This is explained by four hydraulic shock absorbers and by rubber cushioning at 43 points in the chassis. And when you first step inside the car you will be impressed by something out of the ordinary — genuine, long-wearing mohair or whipcord upholstery in the closed cars; fin* leathers in open models. Even though you feel that most cars have sati*- factory motors, you will be surprised at the extra smoothness with which Pontiac's engine doe* its work. We have not forgotten that a car's first job is to get you somewhere, pleasantly. As you drive you will admire the quick pick-up and power of the big, easy-working motor. Immediately it will be clear to you why we arc* so proud of that engine. Whatever you do—braking, clutching, •winging around corners—you will find you really enjoy driving this Pontiac. . Good looks?
