Tidbits From Evelyn When Lucillt Zerfass was in Honolulu a year or two ago and visited Mr and Mrs Verveer anct Zerfass and her husband) became acquainted with Mr Mrf Ben Pang, a charming arid interesting native ceuple. Recently they stopped here to spend a day with Lucille having pbme from the east coast. Lucille $as glad to see them for them- flives, but it added much to the yisit to have first hand news about Janet and her family who moved back to Donner Grove, ft!., some time ago. « * * •• *Wp have bad some threatening feather and there have been so p?any reports of bad storms in Various areas not too far away, |p one can be excused when ap- f extensions arise. However this a story with a peculiar slant, friend phoned me the other day and said, ''I think we are going to have a bad storm." There was fib indication of it at my end of town and I told her I thought she, was.needlessly perturbed. I didn't convince her, however. The 0tyer day she called me again and said, "Do you know what made me think a bad storm was giroing?" "No," I replied, "What Was it." "A blue roof on a barn looked- just like black clouds." £ could see how that was, for When the new roof was first put on -the house north of me I used tfc tget the impression, of storm Qouds too. „ • ' * * f *';' June i« an Important month tor the Ijoy Jfutge}! and Perry Sollins families.

Kinden is having his customary three weeks in June vaca- ttbn and with it comes the sort of Weather that mars it each year— chilly and rainy. They spend a rt of jt at Clear Lake, driving ck and forth from time to time. ite look forward all winter to spring arid summer, and then $hen the calendar says May and June we can't believe it — still looking for warm weather! «' • '»•>. t wA clipping from an old paper af 1317, the "Isabel Tjnies", of Isabel, South Dakota reads — "Lawrence Welk's two-piece orchestra will furnish the music for the dance to bo held Saturday in the hall over the pool hall:'" What a long way he has come. « * » Please excuse it department—Quite a lot of copy was not used during the Memorial Day holiday. Don't feel badly about it. It wasn't intentional, just "one of thj^e things" — and I'll be call- i.^you again., Thank you anyhow. * * • . What a difference the perspective makes. Take for instance, a friend told me the now minister for the Algona Methodist church is a young man about 50. Then the little boy who told of the party given for his father in celebration of his birthday. Asked how old he was the lad replied, "Fifty", to which his interrogrator answered. "Fifty isn't old. (She was at least fifteen years older than that) The lad replied, "Oh, that's getting along in years. Fifty isn't so young." * * * Some interesting travel statistics—It is only four hours via plane from New York City tc Mason City, that is actual travel time. There is a stop-over in Chicago* of two 1 hours or so. And a wait, ii} Mason City if you aren't met there promptly. * • * The latest communication from the Ahner Longs came from Boston, Mass. I suppose they will see the Mayflower, too. They do have such wonderful trips. * * » I always thought measles was a disease of youngsters. I've recently learned there has been quite an epidemic of it in the teenage group. Among them was Ida May Hansen, 17 year old daughter of Mr and Mrs Erman Hansen. ' * • • A few years ago I met Mr and Mrs Dot) Blasky who were Ambrose Call State park custodians. They were sent to Walnut Grove park near Des Moines and three years ago I was their guest at a picnic supper. Soon after coming, home from a trip to Des Mpines the papers were filled with reports of floods in the Raccoon river area. Water T9wer park, Isaak Walton League hall and Walnut Park. Today I heard a news cast that Don Biasky of the Walnut Grove Park was moving his wife and family to a s^fe place as the area is again threatened. He plans tojremain at home and keep on eye on things. • t • Cleone Crawford, daughter of Mr and Mrs A. D. Crawford, has completed her sophomore year at Cornell college, Mount Vernon. and \vjl! resume her studies there next fall. In the meantime, she is employed this summer as supervisor of the playground at Grandview Park. De« Moines. It is an interesting coincidence that her father served under the same recreational director and administration when ho attended college at Drake university, DCS Moines. • • • Each afternoon between 5 and 6 p.m. I lie down for a little nap and rest. Monday was a particularly good day for such nnd for the first time this season one window was raised to it's height. This made street noises very plainly heard and autos were quite annoying. I counted 41 in 10 minutes — three of them trucks. Of course since I live on a corner lot. I counted both streets. But that's "heap much" cars. Wouldn't it be nice to collect a toll? Nice for me, that is. * * * I drove to Emmelsburg Sunday with friends. If you think we had rain you should see the ditches and fields between Cylinder and Emmetsburg. Several fields suffered from hail in an area farther north of highway 18. ' Kohlhaas Jr. has arrived at Stutgaart, Germany after 18 hours of flight. That tfip'ems an incredible length of lime and certainly makes a trip much more enjoyable than hours and hours of train. A boat trip would be fine but I've been told that is 13 days, so just think of the speed and the time saved. * * * Mr and Mrs Don Hemmingsen attended a meeting at Lake of the Ozarks, Mo., just after they had attended a meeting of Don's. 99th division bomb group at Sioux City. They report the Ozarks region as being beautiful beyond description but weather so hot and humid it was most uncomfortable. The Don Akres of Jefferson City, Mo., were also at tlie meeting and entertained the Hemmingsens prior to that. • * » Wallace Mesing's vacation from the S & L store begins June 30 and ho and his parents, Mr and Mrs Max Mesing. are leaving the night of June 29 after he completes work for Long' Beach, Cal., where they will visit the Mesing's s.on-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs R.
