A day u a Hifl e | ft efttfftiif. when we wake up in the morn- in & we can never tell what it will bring. During our 18 or so wakeful hours, events can happen either joyous of sorrowful so that ever after ottr lives are never quite the same. Ifs a good thing foreknowledge is withheld from us for if we knew in advance some of the things that a day can bring our fear and anxiety would be more than we could bear. • * * Fortunately, most of our days are more nr less routine.

A frantic seatch began afidjjn annotmeetnent made b» the P. A. system. Finally, ovet *y the fence in the semi-dsa-kness they spotted a little blonde crew- cut and the back of a reindeet sweater. "Thefe's Waynie, fiow?' they exclaimed with relief and they sent the daughter, Susie to fetch him . 8u*i* grabbed th* boy from th* rear and she met tip with quite a bit of resistance. Me kicked, cried, and yelled, "But 1 don't want to go with you!" Susie, knowing that her little brother was often reluctant to interrupt a project, determinedly kept at it and succeeded in delivering the bay ta her father. Russ picked up the child, gave him a shake and to -be sure the forthcoming Ifecture received full attention, turned him around to look into his face. It wasn't Waynie at all! It was an entirely strange little boy. AfteV more frantic starching the right boys got paired up with the right parents "and Waynie has been doing time at yard confinement to make sure the performance is not repeated. * « « This we«k we hare coming up some days when everybody in Algona is supposed to be ridiculous. For some of us this won't lie hard. A couple of local fellows have been playing a game for some weeks now that, it seems to me, is especially ap- aropriate for Ridiculous Days. In 'act they've been at it so much it las developed into a kind of ridiculous tournament. These guys are kind of big around the — well, let's just say their chests lave slipped — and the game is to reenact the battle of the Meri- mac and the Monitor. Rules are to stand with feet In a prescribed place on the floor, face each other, clasp hands and bunt each other with their middles. First guy to unbalance the other gets the game and the title of Old Ironsides. Or should it be, Old Ironfront? So far the Merlmao has more victories than the Monitor. I received an interesting clipping this week from the Emmetsburg Democrat about one of oui- local charmers, Sheila Sullivan. It says that we may have noticed in the daily papers a week or so ago, a Wirephoto of a Wedding party in Dallas, Texas Where the bridegroom was stricken with acute appendicitis the day before the elaborately planned ceremony. The young groom, however insisted that the show must go on, so after the operation he was taken to the church and participated in the ceremony from a wheel chair. Then he returned to the hospital. Sheila, daughter of Mr and Mr* Wade Sullivan, was the wedding soloist. She had flown to Dallas a few days before to join ih the pre-nuptial festivities for the bride, a classmate of herd from St. Mary of the Woods, Indiana. From Dallas Sheila flew to Washington, D. C., then New York, then on to Nantdcket off the coast of Massachusetts Where she will ? 'ork at a regort inn this summer, he Emmetsburg paper says. Ah, these kids do get around. Sheila is the neice of the Emmetsburg paper's publishers, t h e Kellys and the Knudsons. Bo -tMWfe frMSIli Sb rlef% 5 a **ay to cook thern. The recipe cswie to rue ilv * very rewM- ITOy.
