Among several Easter gifts wai a plaht called "Moses in the Bull- rushes." I had never heard of one before. The leaves look much like those of lillies-of-the^valley, but With reddish colored backs. I am told the blossom resembles a basket with a child in it. I am anxious for this to bloom and see for myself. i » * * The Max Millers were made happy Easter day by phone calls from their son Bruce, Tucson, Ariz., and from Mrs. Miller's sister, Mrs. Julia flora, Chicago. * * * I omitted the name of Pauline Norton from my list of red heads. It is a wonder I didn't think of her when I mentioned Vivian Pangburn for the girls were close friends. * * * Farther news on Pauline. Her brother Milton and his wife Nell were her guests over the Easter weekend and were joined by the Slst , en L Edna Fer g"son, Keokuk, and Eleanor, Vermillion, S. D Pauline had received a phone call' from her step-son Charles Morrow saying he had been informed by the War Department that the sister Gertrude Morrow, was the only Iowa nurse killed in service in World War II. The department had made inquiries from time to lime which have appeared in this newspaper. « « * Mrs. Rebecca Lownian was taken to Des Moines recently by Mr. and Mrs. Perry Lowfnan and she took a plane from there to Stanton, Va., to be with a sick sister Mrs. Anna Sullivan, 88. Mrs. Lowman wrote back that she enioved the trip very much, "The higher I went the better I liked it," otiot- ing from a letter to her family. • « * T had a phone call recently from Mrs. Leonard Gaines. Atlantic. She was here to spend the Easter weekend with her son-in- law and daughter Mr. and Mrs. Francis Fitzgerald. She is a close friend of Mrs. Elizabeth Rowe, Atlantic, a good friend of mine who had asked to have firsthand news from me through her. The Rowe family lived here years ago when the late Carl Rowe was American Express office agent. She will be well remembered here, especially by Lulu Harthsorn, Myrna Ostrum and Bertha Spear. Some literature from filen Mandata, Rock Hill, S. C. contained a program for their "Come See Me" days held Apr. 13, 14 and 15. Great things were planned, the best of which to me would be the Glen Miller orchestra. Comedian Dave Gardner was to entertain, but I have never heard of him. Shame on my ignorance? There was also some literature on Winthrop college, a post card picturing the administration building of the college and one of Main street. Main street looked much like Algonn except for one "tall" building, four or five stories. And of course no entertainment any more is complete without a "Miss America" contest. * * * I am always thrilled when pen- pie know about my little Peninsula, Ohio, which I visited 11 years ago this September. Mrs. A. ,1. Sotten's parents Mr. and Mrs. Louis Orlikowski live at Cleveland. 20 miles from "my town" and are well acquainted with the place. They spent the Easter weekend here with the Cottens. • » • Few people can set this sort of record. Charles Clark, former Kossuth county resident, died at Britt Apr. 9 at the age of 99 last January and left a large number of progeny, 13 children, 35 grandchildren, 94 great-grandchildren, and 45 great-great-grandchildren. Mr. Clark was married to Olive Raney, sister of the late Dolph, Lillie, Carey and Mattie. The family lived on a farm in Kossuth many years and after his retirement went to Britt and has made his home with the son,, Leo. Mrs, Clark died .several voars ago. * • * Leora St. John's birthday \vns celebrated Apr. 24 in the usual manner, cake and fruit juice. Many happy return s, Leora! Among her callers were Mesrlnmes Hazel Lusby, Pearl Dalzicl and Lila Potter. » * * It is so entertaining to lirar Hazel Miller tell about the wonderful winter she and husband Ralph spent in Brownsville and Mexico. I am anxious to go places now to carry the cute woven basket she brought me. Very pretty and unusual. The candy made in Mexico was unusual, too. and good. « • « Seeing the announcement of the May Festival at Cornell college Mount Vernon, May 3, 4 and 5 reminded me of the Festival 1 attended way back in 1910, and was guest of Florence Patterson. Others attending the college who will be well remembered were Edna Norton (Mrs. Arthur Ferguson) Elsie Glasier (Mrs. Walter Jones) and Mayme Bradley (Mrs. Clyde Chitty). I have been through Mmmf Vernnn n couple r>f when enroule to and from Davenport We like the quaint little tnwn. the pretty campus, and when I ionk at Bowman Hall where "Piif lived, I marvel that 1 was ever able to climb the steps to the porch and on up to her second floor room. I wish magic could put me back physically as 1 was then Thomas' orchestra of Chi- caco was the main entertainment will) Francis McMillan an outstanding American violinist whom I enjoyed greatly. Oh, the years, the years! * • • Tltnnks to Hevorlv Ktimnrli and her grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Henry Zumach, Whittemore, for fiftieth wedding anniversary cnke we were served. Beautifully decorated, almost too pretty to eat Beverly is the former R.N. here wiio resigned to go to Ara- pahn, Neb. to manage a nursing home there. * * * Friends of the Homer Tultles will be sorry to learn of his sickness. Apr. 3 he entered a hospital and his ailment was diagnosed osteomyelitis, a stubborn bone ailment. He has been placed in a plaster cast and is now at his home. * * * There is a card club comprised of Mr. and Mrs. George Balluff, Mr. and Mrs. Dale Cole, Mr. and Mrs. Dob Don), Mr. and Mrs. Warren Brokaw, Mr. and Mrs. Don Jorgenson, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Mi no and Mr. and Mrs. Wesley Schultz. Each time they meet they put a dollar in the "kitty" for future fun. This time it was used to take a trip to Minneapolis. They left at 6 a.m., had lunch and dinner at Minneapolis, took in the Sports Show in the afternoon and Follies in the evening and then headed home. Wow! What a day! * » * Harriett DeCamp has an Interesting job. She is teaching ball room dancing at the Arthur Murray school. Charles Taylor, who will be well-remembered, is also an instructor in California. Harriett spent the Easter weekend here with her mother and sisters. Interesting work which I as a dance lover would have found a pleasure. I had just a mere taste of it when Mart McCall had a class of boys years ago and asked me to demonstrate the waltz with him. Remember his happ solo waltzes we enjoyed so much? Moonlight ones with dimmed lights? Oh youth, thou art gone but not forgotten! * • * Mrs. Leona Baker and her son Harry, Minneapolis, spent Easter at Mason City with another son and daughter-in-law Mr. and Mrs. Darwin Baker to whom their sixteenth child was recently born, a Tuesday, May 6, i<?6i Algeria (la.) Upper DM Molne«-3 daughter who Patricia Ann. has been named When I learned the Dwight Cooks have moved into the W. A. Dutton house on South Sample street, I told my informant the house was built by my grandfather Cady way back in 1900 or thereabouts. » * * Oo-la-ln! "She's IJPPII on more laps than a napkin." One girl to another. "He's tall, dark and hands off." * * * The awfid truth. "The fritrlitrn- ing thing about middle age is the knowledge that you'll outgrow it. 1 ' * * * One little story I nearly forgot. I mentioned some time ago that blackbirds are smart. They put one claw on food and hold it secure while biting at it. Dorothy McKim saw something even smarter. It is nesting time and a black bird picked up a lonff. broad weed. He folded it in half, and away he went, the cargo easier to balance apparently. lolod all night Saturday before electing Ron O'Brien, Fairfield, state president, and also elected five new national directors. There wore TOO delegates to the stale meeting.
