. °' <ton al »l son Dennis and granddaughter Elaine Orton got back Aug. 24 from a visit a pavc ni x,, t with Mr and Mrs Ab Long and at Chicago where high- ,m tT/T a visit lo the Planetarium, Fields museum and the zoo 1 erroneously stated they were going to Indiana to see Myrna's sister and brother-in-law, Mr and Mrs John Martin, and while they lint toyed with the idea, it didn't jell. They saw Earl Bradley al Muscat me and he had a fine visit about the old home town Earl is a native Algerian. * * * Carl Morlenson of flood Samaritan has been getting out a few times. He was recently at a family picnic at Fenton at which his 92 year old mother, Mrs Catherine Mortenson, Clinton, was in attendance, making the trip via auto with a son-in-law and daughter Very good for one of such advanced years. Carl went on a fishing trip, too, caught two little insignificant ones and didn't bother to bring them home. » * * Mr and Mrs D. K. Chiquet have returned • from a vacation of p month, two weeks of which were spent at Iowa City where Mr Chiquet was doing some scholastic work. They rubbatl elbows with former presidents Hoover ana Truman at West Branch at the dedication of the Hoover library and were glad for the opportunity of seeing the famous ones. Mrs Chiquet and I discussed women's pocketbooks and arc all for a new fashion that will put huge pockets on dresses and coats so handbags may be eliminated. Any one else want to join the crusade? Little Marcia Elaine Nilson. a six month okl charmer, was in to call on me the other day. She lives at Winnebago and had come with her mother to call on Mrr. Miller. She had a cute little engraved ring on her wedding finger and I got a dimpled smile when I accused her of being a "chile! bride." Of course at about six months she'd understand perfectly! * * * Annie S. Ferguson, Hettendorf, i- a close friend of the Abner Longs, Davenport, and the local Claude Samsons. The "Three Musketeers" met her some time ago, have seen her on each visit the-e and wore her supper guests one evening. She told us about having entered the Pillsbury Bake-Off at various times but had never accomplished anything. At last she has hit the "jack pot" an.l wa:-- one oi seven finalists at the Iowa State Fair. She will compete with others from various siaics ;it Ne\\ York in September. Go^d luck Mrs K. « « * I had the best watermelon I've tasted in years when Claude Whitt brought some here to his wife Adele and me. He had cut it in bite sizes, placed it in a fruit jai in the refrigerator ;;nd it was sc cold and nice. Such a wonderful flavor. * * » If you should see Until Phillips walking the railroad tracks, don't think she has turned Hobo — she's merely hunting weeds to spray and glamorize for winter bouquets. Muttic MeVYhorter and I.eora St. John, roommates here at Oood Samaritan, were put on their backs the other day doing littk services for themselves t h e y shouldn't have been doing — lifting a fan and raising a window. They have always Deen active housewives, anxious to "do-it-yourself." So rather than call a willing nurse, they did what they figured was a simple little household act. They didn't stop to think of ailing backs and lessened strength. Muttie was taken to St. Ann for x-rays and Leora is recovering. We hope both will be in fine condition in a short time. * * * Of all the hideous styles I've seen, the one in a recent Register "took the cake." A very short "peg top" skirt, and a head top ped with a heavy hut with high crown, so huge it would give one a headache in no time. Reminded me of my "hobble" skirt, "psf, top" but ankle length of 1913-14! Oh women!! Then there were men's peg top pants of HJU7-U8. Monstrosities, too. When Edna Edgier Brough was here calling on me she said she. was interested in the "Senior Citizens" project — a common thing in California. A collection of housing units for those of 50 and over. At present she has a very nice trailer house in an attractive court, but a little later she is goinp to look into this Sr. C. thing. Sounds wonderful. When 1 phoiicd a woman fur news the other morning she said, "Wait till I get the toothpaste out of my mouth." Sure proof her teeth were her own. Had anyone seens her with toothpaste foaming at her mouth, they'd probably think she had hydrophobia. Have you noticed !l? "Money saved for a rainy day buys a much smaller umbrella than it used to." * * * Don't we all do it? "Self-portraits usually are colored." * * • I hope by the time this reached print, Bill Barry will be well recovered from his sickness. I've known Bill a good many years. We graduated in the same class. * * * Norman Pingel's eighty - fifth birthday was observed here Aug 28. There was a family celebration for jhim the previous Sunday at his son's, * • » Jess Riddle dropped in lo call on me the other day. He and his family moved to Pomona, Calif, several years ago and engaged in the auto business. Jess is now retired, his son Wayne and family and Jess and wife now live a't Clarernont. Wayne is a realtor. * * • I saw an old toy the other day. an iron horse and two wheeled "sulky" with a driver whose head was balanced on a little rod that permitted it to swing from side to side. An amusing thing which belonged to Oscar Oxley HO or more years ago and kept by his Son, Vincent. « * * I have known "Skin" Laird a number of years so read with interest his search for a gold fish to replace one his granddaughter Carol Carton had and which died while grandma and grandpa Laird were "fish sitl'ng" for Cinderella and Prince Charming while Carol and her parents were on vacation. Having replaced the dead fish with an exact replica, Carol is happy but isn't it a good thing she can't read about the substitution? I always think of the story told me about Mr.s Laird. She named her sons Ralph, Ray and Clare with firm convictions there would be n" nicknames — but alas — they are known as "Skin," "Prel" and "Bones." « * « Raymond Irons probably said more than "Ouch" when a IB pound iron pipe fell on his leg recently. Luckily, I h e member wasn't broken but it did turn a beautiful indigo and Ray didn't care about doing the twist. « • * With the birth Aug. 20 of a son to Mr and Mrs Paul Nelson at Des Moines, Mrs Mabel Lund became great-grandmother for the ninth time. Another interesting birth was that of a son, Andrew James to Mr and Mrs James Thilges, Aug. 30. Grandparents for the first time are Mr and Mr Sylvester Thilges, West Hend, and Mr and Mrs Vernell Ludwig. « * • Aftrr fishing at Rnpidan, and catching nice big ones, they did "gel away", after a fashion, as experienced by Mr and Mrs Charles Kuchynka. He caught a ten pound catfish, she an eight and a' half pound one, and there were a few three and five pounders besides. The Kuchynkas have a house trailer and before going up lo bed, Mr Kuchynka tied the fish in what he considered a safe place in the water. When he went to collect his fish, a turtle had "gotten away" with the side of one of the big ones, much lo Charley's disgust. Now he is pondering on a way to make fish safe from turtles yet left in the water. Any ideas, you nimrods? How about you Gail Towne, and Carl Morck Sr. What would you suggest? Ringsfed Girl Receives The birthday of Frank Welter was celebrated here Aug. 31. He became a resident here the previous clay. For some time he war, a resident of West Bend and is a brother of the Delia and Edith Welter. RETIRES Walter Holmes, cashier at the C.
