Last nameJias- I was asked why I was interest«l in King Tut's tomb. Good heavens! Don't you remember the vast wealth of golden articles jewelry and what not that were buried with him? What a historic event it was when the tomb was found and entered. And can't one speak not quite literally now and then? A habit of mine, I guess. * * * The Donald l.eavertons were sponsors recently for their niece liltle Abigal Blanche. A quaint name, Abigal, which will of c/irse be shortened to Abbie. Abifjil _ 1 picture a pink cheeked, blue 1 eyed little miss with fat blond braids And precocious. La mussen, by the way. » » * l-tiolln Baker's granddaughters Martha Ann and Jeanne Baker Ames, have been taking lessons in dramatics which have paid off. Recently they appeared on WOI— TV, Martha Ann a.s "The Pied Piper" and Jeanne as "Lach Macbeth." * « • Jusl three more (o go and the Paul Schneiders will have a base bull nine of their own gran-Jchil dren. The sixth was born Aug. I 1 to Mr and Mrs Phillip Schneider The daughter Barbara has four* sons, David and Phillip. And nary a girl in the families! . i ,•*" • Ethel Potter says she had tomatoes still earlier than those I reported. Latest news on the subject is that worms are attacking the product. There's always a ''fly in the ointment" of gardening, it seems. * • • Dora Johnson, my aunt Mary Henderson's sister, was here Tuesday and we had a nice vi^it. I got caught up on all the family news and was sorry to learn their sister, Myrtle, i.s bedfast at St. Petersburg, Fla., having suffered a broken hip in a fall several months ago. Her husband Frank Malonc-y made a business trip to Chicago, became sick and is hospitalized there. Myrtle will be remembered here a.s one of the Pelleymounter girls. She married T. Y. Williams who died a number of years ago. Her marriage to Mr Maloney took place about four years ago. * * * Thank you who gave me birthday cards. An interesting coinci deuce, one from Connie Jergenson, Denver, and one from Hattie Burlingame, Algona, were identical. Cute cards of a humorous nature. Druscilla Caughlin Mertz, Grand Island, Neb., sent a booklet of birthday prayers. Louise Malone Turner of Council Bluffs remembered me, too. The rest were local. Again thanks to each of you. » » • Connie said they are coininp "home" next week. 1 shall loot forward to seeing her and the family. She hopes Mabel Livingston will still be here. We all hope As I said last work, my birthday was celebrated al Clear Lake. Ac companying me were Mabel Hut zell, Velma Hagg and Mabel Livingston. It was a perfect clay Thursday < my dale is actually the 14th, but events made it im possible to observe that clay). After all, what's the difference? After dinner, we browsed through a nearby gift shop. Such an array of things. I have all the knickknacks and do-dads I want or have room for, so 1 merely looked. The lake was pretty and calm, so there were a number of boats out. VVr sal near the water and watched activities. One was a cute pup that dug in the sand, barked and had fun — we think he thought the waves were alive and he was ready lo catch them. His mistress, a tot about five, picked him up, v\et belly with sand on it, clutched him to her chest to carry him and we wo |!cred what Mom would think of the soiled dress. A school bus load of children were being given an outing by a group of "do gooders" from Mason City A bus load of under privileged children, ranging from around five to ten or so I'd guess. Thev were being given popicles and had just returned from a boat ride. * * t Mrs Anna Missal was visited one day lasl week by Mrs Dora Ha Row, Titonka, and Mrs Harold Kuchenreuther. They also called on me. Times change. Years ago, when the Kossuth County Fair was held in September, we got out our fall finery and dressed to the teeth! Now the garb is even more than "casual" — slacks, shorts, no hats — 1 might go so far as to say "sloppy." I like the old times better, and so does the friend with whom I was discussing this. t t » A birthday card came Aug. 17 from Dorothy Campbell, Edmunds, Wash. She wrote "I fully intended stopping in to see you when we were in Algona, but time was so short. We toured 14 states (over 6,000 miles) in only U days. It was so good to see Algona. In three years so much had changed. We had a lovely visit with the James Wills." » * * Students back in 1028 had an English teacher, Katherine Moses. She taught here five years and went from here to Rapids City S. D. She will be retired in May. She is a member of a National English Society and recently was delegate to a meeting in Philadelphia, Pa. She was a guest of Mrs Glee Pitcher (Dorris Long) who graduated in 1920. Dorris lives at Wellsville, Pa. * « • Pomona, Calif, is my "dish" so it was with interest I read a newspaper clipping my cousin Melvin Henderson sent me. Pomona had a population of about 19,000 when mother and I made our first trip there in 1923. It now has 72,717! Quite a jump. The smallest cities are Vernon. 221; Bradbury, 681; Industry, 74?. The rminty of Los Angeles gained 404 persons a day the last two years, boosting the population to 6,410,506. No wonder there are freeways, smog and congestion. * » * Mr and Mrs \V. C. Dewel are spending the summer at their Clear Lake cottage, the fiftieth consecutive season Mr Dewel has spent there. The location at one time was called "Algona Beach", along with the Tribon, Rist and Lusby cottages. * * * Mr and Mrs I'erry Collins spent a few days at the Wisconsin Dells and Minneapolis. At the Dells they saw Tommy Bartlett's water carnival and voted it beautiful. Tommy you will remember, a few years ago had the "Welcome Travelers" radio program. Poor guy — "Department store gift counselor to middle - aged customer: "From the way you describe her, I'd buy something for somebody else." mnn nf bnokynrd hnrbww; "Now that you mention it, it DOES taste like charcoal-broiled charcoal." * * * Don't, throw away your old glasses when you can no longer use them. Give them to Mabel Hutzell or get the address from her of an organization that collects old spectacles and GIVES them to those who can't afford to buy any. I just donated a pair purchased back in '39 or Mo tha' have been taking up space. « * * August 18 — More thanks to Dorothy Campbell for the box of Aplets and map of the Worlds Fair delivered by Thelma Will. Seems like old times having dinner together, the "Three Musha- teers" and the Abner Longs. And such a pleasant evening and delicious dinner witli Myrna and Web Orton, the Longs ! uid Harold Hutching Aug. 17. Dining Myrna's absence 'ast winter and spring her son \Veb made the nicest patio We plan lo make use of it ere C'- ;/ i Summer complaint — "Man to weather gets here. How I do hate to think nf bring cnoppd up this winter! Web had a flock of sheep but sold them some time ago. They were first cousins to deer, apparently, because they could scale any fence and he got weary of having them outsmart him. Mrs Hugh Colwell has returned from a trip to the west coast with her son-in-law and daughter, Dr and Mrs Harold Banwarl and two children, Adel. They spent three days in Seattle attending the Worlds Fair, ferried to Bremerton and there saw the U.S.S. Missouri on which the peace treaty was signed. They visited a museum which contained many svax figures of celebrities. There was a rocking chair awaiting the uncompleted model of President Kennedy. Mrs Colwell was particularly im- pivssod by "The Lord's Supper", beauliful and realistic. At Ellenberg. Wash., they visited Dr. and Mis Hny Ruebel, nephew of Mrs Colv.ell. Among other places of inter; U visited were Coulee Dam, Glacier Natiotnl Park, Lake Lou- nnd flip rnnndian Hookfps. They traveled 5500 miles and had a house trailer, ample room for the six travelers.
