It lasts 17 days and he will be at the grounds most of the time. His citrus company exhibits each year. He startef with the fair in 1932. There arc over 450 acres of ground, so many exhibits and beautiful decorations. This year a mono-rail has been installed at a cost of about a half- million dollars. At fifty cent? per ride, he expects it won't take long to pay off the cost. As usual, he says, they expect in excess of one million visitors. He said, "The fires were bad — and thank heavens it turned out real damp and cool for this is a bad time of year for fires. In fact it has been the coldest part of September so far as I can remember in years. Then we may be due for the first rain in a few weeks, and it will be most welcome." The resi- dental development has taken over the citrus business and this association will be closed Oct. 31. It has operated since 1919. * * * The birthday of Mrs Edith Johnson was celebrated Sept. 19. She is a recent resident of Good Samaritan and mother of the Hall brothers, Walt and Deb. : !l • * • Liberace should forget being a song and dance man and stick to the piano. * f * I was mighty uncomfortable when the report of the fire location Wednesday was two and a half blocks on South Thorington street. It was uncomfortably close to my home. It was at the [ Alvin Petersons across the street. > A roof fire and not too damaging, thank goodness. I am looking forward to this long distance dialing from one's home or office come 1963, as per announcement by the company and accompanying the picture of the addition to the present building in the UDM. * * * I am glad Welk is leaving more of the dancing to the young couple, Barbara and Bobbie. Let's hope he keeps it that way. • • • An education? "Some college girls pursue learning, others learn pursuing." « • • Think so? "If beach attire gets more exciting, the tide won't go out." * • • Not long after a report on the Haggs' flowers blooming out of season, another freak blooming was reported by Mrs Webster Gillespie. They have three Easter lillies and Web has planted it outside with instructions from Ames as to the possibilities of having the plants survive the winter What shall we blame these phen- onmena on'' Nuclear blasts? If it keeps in reverse, we'll not need to go to Texas, Florida or California for the winter. « • » Speaking of flowers — I read in the paper the other day of a night blooming sereus. I saw one at mv aunt Mary Henderson's home in 1 omona a number of years ago It j grows atop a long cucumber like body, reaching a height of six or eight feet. There may be other colors, but this one was yellow. • » « With the birth of a baby Sept 19 to Mr and Mrs Phil Norris of La Porte City, Mrs Augusta BieU became great-grandmother for the fifty-fifth time. Who can top that record? « • * Had Mathias Geigel of Madison Wis., lived 10 more days, he would have been l(M years old.
