*-AI§6flfl(l«.) Upper DM MetflM Tuesday, Oetobef 14, 1962 Tho Miss Nelson of (he "Court House Rats" picture still remain ed a mystery, but all at once i came to me — Jones, Maude, o course, whose daughter Owe married Bernard Tierney. My cousin Edwin Cady me from Houston, Tex. the othe evening and we had a wonderfu chat. I also talked with his wif Mayme. She is a Mississippian and grew up on a plantation when there were many Negroes, He work with the social and welfare department in Houston, at her re quest, was in a department when the colored people were callet upon and interviewed. She fel she was more familiar with their point of view. I asked her whai she thought of the present Missis sippi situation. Her answer pleased me. "I am an American first of all," she said, "and I believe the law should be obeyed." I have a treat in store for my supper Oct. 4 — Ground cherry sauce sent by Mrs Paul Hilbert, I have already thanked her, but here's more. • * * My cousin. Pat Cady, Hayward, Calif., had a letter quoted in a recent issue of Look. I think it is quite an honor. Mr and Mrs Cecil Taylor too their Pekingese dogs, Johnnie anc Khasi, to Sioux City a few wee ago to a dog show. Johnnie wo a blue ribbon and a trophy, pla ing first. Carl Mortenson had Mr and M Emil Bierstedt, Fenton, as caller this week. » » * Thanks to the Hurt ladies ai eociety of the Methodist church for the cute little flower favors. • • * How I'd loved to have been in Des Moines Wednesday to hear the Welk program. Curses on arth ritis. the cracker • barrel philosopher. One of his savings was "Lafe Bud drove out to the poorhouse today in his new Cadillac to see his mother." Another was, "Most parents don't worry about a daughter until she fails to show up for breakfast. Then it's too late." * * • Adrl White had a pleasant afternoon recently. Her husband Claude took her up town, up and down the streets in her wheel chair into the stores to do a little shopping and to a cafe for refreshments. A simple bit of entertainment you may think, but when one is confined to one room, or at least one floor, it is a treat to get out. Adele is a resident here at Good Samaritan. How badly we need an elevator so second and third floor residents can get down and sit on the porch or lawn. Please page Santa Claus. Mr and Mrs Dirk Meyer wer happily surprised last week by . visit from Mr and Mrs Clarenc Irving, Vancouver. The women were classmates, all were friend: who had not met in 10 years. Wha a lot of territory was covered ii that overnight visit. • * My cousin Maymo Cady has a record that boats thai. When talking with her and Edwin the other evening, it was mentionec her sister had been there on a visit from the west coast and it had been 50 years since they saw earh other. In this day of easy travel that record is awful. • • Mrs Augusta JIM'/, will have In take a back seat, great as her record is, for grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Her competitor is Mrs Lillian Dixson, 80, mother of Mrs Bea Baldwin. Mrs Dixson has 54 grandchildren, 76 great- grandchildren, and three great- great-grandchildren. • * • To create a little diversion over here, a baseball pool was held interested in who the lucky on£g were. Maybe they don't want me to tell. Fifly years ago in Milford a club was started, the TMM's, which meant Twelve Merry Maidens. As time passed, they bO' came merry matrons, some mov od away, some died, and replacements were made. Tuesday, Sept. 25, the anniversary of the club's founding was celebrated at Edna Donelson's at Milford and among the four charter members prc< sent was Mrs J. I. Merryman. • * » I ran'l think of a nicer birthday celebration than that of Mrs Dennis Jergenson who, with her daughter Christine accompanied Mr and Mrs Armond Tabb, Minneapolis, to Bemidji and Lake Itasca, Minn. She was gone 10 days. At his time of year, the landscape is particularly lovely, with the all colors, woods aflame and i/ure blue skies. « * * Mr and Mrs William McKJm vere visited over the weekend by Thursday. I didn't enter, but wf their daughter Grace, a student at the towa State University, Ames Mrs McKlfn Is a nurse at Gooc Samaritan. I like her approach. Her cheerful question, "And what is your trouble?" when she answers bells, troubles seem to vanish when she's on the job. « » « The First Baptist church has been without a pastor since the resignation a few months ago of Rev. J. R. Fountain who moved to Arizona for health reasons. His place will be taken Nov. 1 by Rev. Richard Cagle, Seymour. He is married, has four daughters, 9, 7, 5 and 2 years of age. He attended Bob Jones U. at Greenville, S. C. and the North Baptist Theological school at Chicago.

He and his wife Lillian plan o return to Ippy, Central Africa Republic in the late fall to continue their work in the missionary field where they hnd been tot some time prior to their furlough, * * * « tt Is two girls ami one hoy In the Don Cook family of Pomona, Calif. Kimberly, Sharon Rae and David. The grandparents are Mr and Mrs Ray Cook and Mr and Mrs Dick Kain. * * * Janclle nnd Gerald arc cute names for the Rev. Everett Black twins, and any parent has a right to name their child as they wish, but for me it would be Janelle and Jerold. I like the two J's Ere long they will be Jan and Jerry, I'll bet a dollar. * * * It has been many years since I saw Vera Ogren (Mrs Robert Williams), but I had a brief chat with her Oct. 7 when she and her doctor — husband called to see her aunt, Mrs Anna McQuade, who died Oct. 8. Vera was a nurse at the old Algona hospital under Dr. M. J. Kenefick. The hospital is now the Masonic Temple. Dr Williams had a small hospital at Lakota. He has been retired for some time and the couple spends (heir time In Canada summers nnd Rogers, Ark. winters. ;}I lit I* Oh tlonr — I hntl no more than expressed satisfaction that Welk was getting away from his dancing and lo, the last two programs he's been showing off again. I admire him greatly and love his music, but I say leave the terpsec- orian demonstrations to the young. * * * After three years of service at Hahn, Germany, S/Sgt. Robert Lampright, his wife and little dau- Sahdffl ftW bftek ffl the States and mighty happy to be on home soil. They wouldn't trade the meanest place in the U.S. tot the best in Germany, though some tourists who see only the nice side might argue. Living and looking are vastly different aspects. From here the Lamprights will go to Denver, Colo., where Robert will be an instructor at the technical training center at Lowry Air Base.
