The Algona Upper Pea Moines, Algona, Iowa, Aug. 23,1934 KOSSUTH FOLKS ATTEND IA. PICNIC INCALIFORNIA Many Former Iowa Notables Present at Great Annual Picnic at L. B. :Mrs. A. D. Clarke and Mrs. Bowyer, to Say Nothing of Sen. Adams in List (By Horace Mann) Editors Algona Upper Des Molnes: The thirty-second annual Iowa summer picnic was held In Blxby Park, .Long Beach, California, as all the others have been, on the second Saturday, the llth of August, it was a perfect picnic day, although Mrs. Nellie Gray Bowyer thought the ocean breeze at the Kossuth county tree •was a little too cool when she arrived from Hollywood with Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Horan, at the same tune the •writer got there from Long Beach. <7harles Waldo and Maggie Henderson Waldo who came from San Bernardino, which is rather noted for high temperatures as well as for its annual orange show and various other attractions and proudcts, confirmed my opinion of the ideal picnic weather in Long Beach, where they hope to return. The most distant visitors were Mr. and Mrs. Mark Boyle of San Diego. Geo. Welch and his sister, Charlena, were also here from San Diego, and were members of a party of Kossuth and Humboldt friends Who enjotyed picnicking together, others in this group were Harry J. Wilson and Lu- Elia Russell Wilson and daughters, Irene Wilson Warner and Camilla Wilson Wallace, Herman Russell and Nettie Lane Russell, Mrs. Lansing Howard, (sister of Mrs. Agnes Babcock). and her niece, Prances Babcock, Rev. Cora Van Velsor Lambert and her sister, Mrs. Mary v. V. Bellows Miner, and Dr. R. P. Miner and Harry J. Tremain and Carrie Lorbeer Tremaln, and others. . . When we arrived at the park one Kossuth county list contained the names of Mrs. Clara Devlne, George Devlne, Clifford Devlne, C. M. Stevens, and P. J. Finn, all of Long Beach, -J. B. Henderson of Placentla, W. J. Lull of Compton, Mr. and Mrs. O. L. Harper of Ontario, and) Arnold G. Strom of Brawley. The largest attendance this year was from Long Beach and Included besides those already mentioned, Marjorie Carton Harrlman, Ray Blasen, Wm. Blasen, Nick Blasen, Fiances Blasen, W. B. Sherman, N. M. Fehrm, Kate Anderson, Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Wolcott, Cecil J. Bexell, Mrs. Aug. Bexell, Mr. and Mrs. C. L. McParland, Mrs. Ralph Stockman, Dan Anderson, George W. Pangburn, Mrs. John T. Hartrmn, Lura (Hannah) Hanna, Wm. Huettner, Ben L. Mayhew, Edna McFarland and Dr. Paul Southgate. From Hollywood besides the Horans and Mrs. Bowyer were her daughter, Gwendolyn Bowyer Norrie and Mrs. Lou Nicoulin Qutnlan, and from Glendale, Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Reaser, Mr. and Mrs. c. B.

Swanson, Sr., were here from Inglewood, and Mrs. Jennie Wltham Anderson from Compton. Arthur H. Funk, Lucy Funk and Eunice Funk were here from Harbor City, and Harry Swnason from Lynwood. Zella Winkei Stewart came ov°r from Riverside to campaign for Governor M«rriam, and I told her that I had changed by registration from republican to democrat last December in order to vote for Upton Sinclair for governor, and that Sinclair will carry Long Beach on August 28. This is a forecast which you can check after that date. Stevte DUnn, former Irvlngtonlan, was there, but failed to register, as did also Mr. and Mrs. Barney Goeders, and probably many others because there was too much talking to do. Here Is the list registered from Los Angeles: Mrs. A. D. Clarke, Irma D. Clarke Adams, Senator Henry Adams, E. A. Adams, O. H. Richards, Mrs. L. J. DeGraw, Mildred DeGraw, C. J. Eddy, Olive Eddy Jones, (Springfield, 8. D.), Mr. and Mrs. Woertendyke. A. F. Bellman, Albert Meyer and Miss Emma Erickson. It will be noted that Marjorie Car- Ion Harriman was here having Just completed a tour around the world. She has been physical training teacher at the Alexander Hamilton Junior high school, and when that beautiful building was wrecked by the earthquake last year, she secured a year's leave of absence for this world tour.
