2-Algono (to.) Upp«r D«4 Moln«r Thursday, June 27, 1957 THBSB)WOMBN! By (TAlessto "Here I am, John — in the shade!" Tidbits From Evelyn 'When Lucille Zerfass was in Honolulu a year or two ago and visited Mr and Mrs Verveer (Janet Zerfass and her husband) she became acquainted with Mr and Mrs Ben Pang, a charming and interesting native couple. Recently they stopped here to spend a day with Lucille having come from the east coast. Lucille Was glad to see them for themselves, but it added much to the visit to have first hand news about Janet and her family who moved back to Donner Grove. HI., some time ago. * * * .We have had some threatening weather and there have been so rriany reports of bad storms in various areas not too far away, so one can be excused when apprehensions arise. However this is, a story with a peculiar slant; Af friend phoned me the other day ahd said, "I think we are going to have a bad storm." There was no indication of it at rny end of tdwn and I told her I thought s§e was needlessly perturbed. I didn't convince her, however. The other day she called me again aftd said, "Do you know what made me think a bad storm was toming?" "No," I replied, "What was it." "A blue roof on a barn looked just like black clouds." I. could see how that was, for when the new roof was first put oil the house north of me I used to get the impression of storm clouds too. * * « June it an important month for the Roy Hutzell and Perry Collins families. Floyd Hutzell and Carol Collins were married in June last year and this year both received their B. A. degrees at Iowa State Teachers college, Cedar Falls. Floyd graduated in industrial arts and Carol in art, primary and kindergarten. On top of this Floyd has a teaching position in the schools at Cherokee and still bigger events are anticipated in July or August. Congratulations, Mr and Mrs Floyd Hutzell. * • * O. B. Kinden is having his customary three wteks in June vacation and with it comes the sort of weather that mars it each year— chilly and rainy. They spend a part of it at Clear Lake, driyino back and forth from time to time. We look forward all winter to spring and summer, and then when the calendar say/, May and June we can't believe it — still looking for warm weather! * • « A clipping from an old paper of 1917, the "Isabel Timr-s" of Isabel, South Dakota reads — "Lawrence Week's two-piece orchestra will furnish the music for^ the dance to be he!d Saturday in' the hall over the pool hall." What a long way he has come. * *. * Please excuse if 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 i^e things" — and I'll be call- you again. Thank you anyhow. 99* What a difference the perspective makes. Take for instance, a friend told me the new 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 interrogi-ator answered. "Fifty isn't old. (She was at least fifteen years oider 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 r-few York City to Mason City, that is actual travel time. Thejre is a stop-over in Chicago of'two ho'urs or so. And a wait in Mason City if you aren't met there promptly. * * • The latest communication from the Abner 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 thr. teenage group. Among them was Ida May Hansen, 17 year old daughter of Mr and Mrs Ennan Hansen. * • » A few years ago I met Mr and Mrs Don Blasky who were Ambrose Call State park custodians. They were sent to Walnut Grove pad; near Des Moinrs ;,rjd three ye;,i.-, ago I was their fiucst at a picnic Cupper. Soon after corning home from a trio to Des: Moines the p:.ip';r.s were filled with reports of flood.-; in the Raccoon river area. Water Tower park, Isaak Walton League hall and Walnut Park. Today I heard a news ca.-t that Don of. the W;.lnut Grove Paik wii.i moving his wife- and faintly to ;. safe place ar, the an.-a j.s aga:. r . threat.T.f.d. He plans to remain at home and kff-p on <;'•-(' nn things. « « • Cleone Crawford, daughter of Mr and Mrs A. D. Crawford, has completed her sophomore year at Cornell college, Mount Vernon, and will resume her studies there next fall. In the meantime, she is employed this summer as supervisor of the playground at Grandview Park, Des Moines. It is an interesting coincidence that her father served under the same recreational director and administration when he attended college at Drake university, Des 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 and 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. Df course since I live on a corner lot, I counted both streets. But :hat's "heap much" cars. Wouldn't ;t be nice to collect a toll? Nice for me, that is. m » * I drove to Emmelsburg Sunday with friends. If you think we had rain you should see the ditches and fields between Cylinder and Immetsburg. Several fields suf- 'ered from hail in an area farther north of highway 18. * * 9 Phil Kohlhaas Jr. has arrived at Stutgaart, Germany after 18 lours of flight. That seems an incredible length of time and certainly makes a trip much more enjoyable than hours and hours of :rain. A boat trip would be fine jut I've been toid that is 13 days, so just think of the speed and the time saved. * * * Mr and Mrs Don Hemmiilgsen 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 egion as being beautiful beyond description but weather so hot and humid it was most uncom- tortable. The Don Akres of Jefferson City., Mo., were also at ;he meeting and entertained the Hemmingsens prior to that. * * * Wallace Mesing's vacation from the S & L store begins June 30 and he and his parents, Mr and Mrs Max Mcsing, are leaving the night of June 29 after he completes work for Long Beach, Cal., .vhere they will visit the Mesing's son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs R. E. Ellis.

The corn is growing vigorously and will look attractive to the moth. With favorable weather this week, the egg mass count will be high. Watch your fields for egg masses and leaf feeding. The corn borer can be controlled with DDT. We will furnish the DDT for a complete spray job, or we will apply your DDT. When you have 50 masses per 100 plants or 75% leaf feeding, its profitable to spray. Call us a day or two in advance so we can make our arrangements to get to yours at the proper time. Timing is the important factor with corn borer control. STEIER FLYING SERVICE Aerial Spraying Whittemore, Iowa ELMER J.
