"Wo went to one of their parks everything was served hot, even mashed potatoes and chicken .gravy. Mrs. Eastman was Luella ^Wartman, and Is as beautiful as fever, perhaps more so, with her gray :jiair. At that time the Eastmans -were living with Fred Calkins, / the !latter at one time a ICossuth county -officer. He had just built one of the -most artistic Spanish homes I have ever seen, and Mr. Eastman had fosrne S.

I hardly ever know any triem- ber of any of the families holding picnics there, but I find pleasure in the knowledge that the park ^furnishes a meeting place for these large groups. •,;; "I visited the park twice since its dedication—once in the spring ;when the wild flowers were in bloom and ngaln In the fall when the leaves had begun to color on the trees—• and I carry pleasant recollections f>t both visits.

Kings Ha.vo Fruit Ranch. I also visited Mrs. J. E. King and . son Horace in Sunnyvale, which -*s ten miles from San Jose. The .3Dngs have 27 acres of very produc- -tive land (27 acres is considered a -3mrso ranch here). Most of It is in rpears, which Horace was then har- -vesting. They also have about every -ether fruit which grows there. Pric"HB were so low Horace thought he -wouldn't make much this year. Horace was asked by about a dozen for work. Wages paid were 25 •cents an hour, but he paid 30c, and •when people told him their troubles •lie didn't think he had any. He is in good health, but Mrs. King is not <.»o well. She is in her S5th year, son Robert King had thought of but had all of his money in -one of the banks in Chicago which ..ffafled. The Eastmans also suffered .hfteavily from a bank failure in Iowa.

"Everywhere folks ought to learn their park or parks.

Mr. and Mrs. Osterbauer were married In Algona In 1881 by Father McCaffey of the Cathpllc church. They farmed many years In Union township, where their five children were toorn.

"I haven't any relatives there and wouldn't get in on any of those good times if I was'around, but I rejoice to think that the folks can enjoy a day once a year at least ered beauties. "It Is a long time since I roamed the woods and bluffs, along the river and spied on the birds and - animals, but I still recollect some of the Incidents of my boyhood, before I came Into more complete captivity, and of the haunts of wild fruit and flowers and'birds and animals and remember something of their cVuorrn; Age' robs many of assoclar tlons with friends and nature but, It can only dim their recollections. , "I would count it a great privilege and blessing- If -I.could, visit all the public and private parks (open ;to the public) in Iowa.

Tisits General from China. I also called on a very dear friend it)f Edith's, from Peking, Gen. Mun-the, who was resting at the Chris •tian Science Benevolent Rest Home. "He is a Norwegian, but has lived in *China 40 or 50 years, and is consid- -ered the greatest foreign collector of ;amcient Chinese art. His collection Urns for some time been In the Los Angeles museum. Los Angeles is to buy it, and Gen.. Munthe give the proceeds to charity. Marjorie is a teacher, of physical instruction in the Los Angeles schools. Joe Harry Call's youngest son, Joseph L. Call, was recently appointed judge of the municipal court here. , He is a, very ambitious and promising young man of only 27 years. His father had an uncle, a brother of Asa and Ambrose bv the name of Joseph, who Call, died when a very young man, but he used to debate with Stephen A. Douglas. Mrs. John Walker and her drove to Vancouver to visit The Home Is the most beautiful and Ttip-to-date place I saw there, for everything else looks so old and un- skempt. The houses are all built up away from the ground. I could find tto one to tell me why. Even the •ranches In that locality show signs wf age. The fences were built 50 •years ago, and are made of rough -narrow boards standing upright. The Baughns took me for a beau- ftttul drive inland from Oakland up •winding roads through the foothills ^Murt a pine grove set out by Jua- «anim Miller, called the poet of the Sierras. His old home, as well as the newer one, were near the road. "arhe night after his daughter's mar- Jriaj?e she made her husband a bed at roses on a hilltop and danced ar- «rand him all night. At least that is 4he story told there. It is so cold in -that locality that I wore all the itioUies I had, even two pairs of jBtodcings, and borrowed a sweater from Mrs. Baughn. Visits Southwells Again. 1 returned to San Jose to join the .ladies on my homeward trip, and rarpent another night with the South- -anslls. Mr. Southwell told such clev- ver stories about the ministers we 'nsed to know at the time they were String in Algona, and mimicked 4hem to perfection. I have heard it ••H, "If you want to entertain a "SoUy crowd entertain ministers," and 1 have found it to be true.

Mrs. East- son Mrs. Walker's brother, Will Salisbury, and her sister, Trix Harrison, in Santa Clara. Mrs. Sol Flschel called me a few weeks .ago, and I had planned'to see her, but I just learned that she passed away very suddenly. She had been living here since 1927. She was a very good musician, and had a class here. When Hotel Algona was built (at that time called the Durdall) Mr. Fischel had a clothing store in the east side of that building. Their son Phil is married and living in Chicago. Mrs. Clark Still Active. Mrs. A. D. Clarke was 87 years old October 12. I should say 87 years young, if it were not for a little lameness. Her daughter, Mrs. Henry Adams, invited a few friends to help 11 WOMEN DRAWN AS PETIT JURORS Petit jurors for the next term of court, which opens November 23, were drawn Saturday.

Bancroft French, Grace Titonka were took many weeks, • and Mr. Osterbauer remembers the trip over : and the tediousness of the day after day on the water. He remembers seeing whales and fish. He has never made a trip back, because of the lasting impression of the trip to this country. . When he was ten years old his father disappeared and It Is believed met with foul play because he carried a sum of money received from the sale of a flour mill in Austria. The children were then raised by friends in Wisconsin. One of the brothers is dead, but the other lives in St. Paul. .

The following is one she heard over the radio last March: "A very cold morning an evangelist was reaching in church .in Milwaukee. Jefore the regular service she was alking to a class of little girls anging in age from 6 to 10.-She ex- lained the lesson and talked about eaven.

A neighbor tried to persuade me "to stay there and not come down there, and said that no one liked i "Aere. I told her I should come, am -ttat if I didn't like it I could g 0*ck. On our way home we stopped a .Atascadero and hunted up the E. 1 B aSutlers. With their usual hospital •ftjr they insisted on my friends, stay &ag too. We spent the aftqrnoo mud night there.

Charlie Cohenour .disappeared: 'rom his home in Glendale, Ariz., n 1913, leaving his wife.-and their ion Charles, eight years old. After six years Mrs. Cohenour received \ls Insurance, and also a penslon.by virtue of his service in the Spanish- American war. About a. year • ago :he pension ceased, and on investigation, it was found that Mr. :C6- lenour was receiving it in 'Porterville, Calif., where he has 'been during the intervening 18 years. • He lives on a little two-acre ranqh'. '•"•' Mrs. Cohenour had a millinery and general store in Glendale, where she struggled on for several years. She afterward came to Los - Angeles, where she brought up her boy to a fine young manhood, with the. help of her brother, Dr. Walters, educating him in dentistry. He established a good practice till this summer when he was killed in an airplane crash. He was married when.he;was 19, and he and his bride -went,: to Porterville on their honeymoon... His father saw an account of 'it in the paper, but did not make himself known. A number here have known of his whereabouts for some time, but Mrs. Cohenour knew nothing of 'it"till a'few weeks ago when\she jsaw an account In the paper of .Mr. Cohenour being In Los Angeles on business in regard to his father's, estate. Needless to say it was a great shock to her. Visits Former Algonians. Doctor Morse, from Los Gates, has been visiting his son Will In Glendale. Will has two little boys.

S. department of agriculture and the state agricultural colleges, will be broadcast next week Saturday over a network of radio stations associated with the N. B. C., including WOW, WOC, and WHO. It tis customary at this time for 4-H clubs to take inventory of the progress made during the year. Of 845,000 members enrolled in club .work last spring, a -large percentage completed all requirements in 1931. They are a credit to their communities,' to the local leaders, to the extension service and to the nation. To honor their achievements this year a nation-wide radio program will be broadcast. The department of agriculture and the state extension service, each is responsible for, 30 minutes of the program, as follows: U. S. D. of A-, 11:30 to 11:45. Stars and Stripes • Forever— U. S.

Her first picture, Tarnished 'Lady, was a frost, bufMy Slri. shows a marked Improvement; perhaps the . directors are working her-up to a climax. At any rate, it is quite apparent that Miss Bankhead Is a clever and talented actress, far above stories like My Sin. She is.well .cast with the ever popular Frederick March, than •whom there Is no more likeable, affable and thoroughly Ingratiating actor on the screen. He seems par tlcularly well cast In this picture or rather we should say, puts life and reality Into an Impossible role. Frederick March is good to the bitter end, while Tallulah seems to sense the futility of the thing towards the -last of the picture and almost fades out of the show. Her. best, acting takes place In Panama. MY SIN 'concerns the escapades of two so-called pieces of human drift-wood, who meet in Panama; he is a promising young. attorney who is drinking himself In to'oblivion; sh e is the lady of easy virtue (the"picture stresses the unimportant f&ct .that she has errd but once)' who is| try. ing to forget; she kills a;'rnah, he, with a noble gesture, defends and acquits her; the scene moves to the United States where the situation, fully .discussed above, takes place. The first part of the action is convincing—the last, is not. The incidental music is pleasing and the photography fair.

Borchardt Jeweler from lack of finesse, what we mean. If you know O ,NE OF THE cleverest sketches in The Third Little Show, an ultra sophisticated revue now playing at the Great Northern theater in Chicago, is "Africa Shrieks", a satire, as you have already guessed, on the deluge of African animal pictures which has come to the silver screen within the past year. Africa Shrieks, on the stage, is a gorgeous spectacle -of color and setting, in which the animals hold an indignation meeting in the jungle because Hollywood photographers have invaded their very sanctum sanc- torums and they now have about as much privacy as a gold fish. Even their amorous and most Intimate activities are subject to the talking picture and are shown on silver screens the world over as entertainment. This, of course, is very humiliating as you may well imagine; how would you like to have a photographer burst into your homp just as you were 'in'the act •• of taking a bath or—er, -well, cleaning up the house or brushing your teeth? : SOMEHOW, after seeing East of Borneo', we have come to the conclusion that this thing of- jungle pictures has gone about far enough; an occasional authentic production would be both entertaining and edu,- catlonal but when, they take the "leavings" from a couple, of African trips ,and weave a jStory around it and release it as a "super-special" —well, that's almost., too much of a good thing. We have an uncomfortable feeling in this Borneo whangdoodle that we have been deceived and we do hate deception In our films, especially when we are supposed to get all worked up about the spectacle in question.
