1-Alflono fie.) Upp*t fa* Mo5n« , July 11, Algona Girl, June 13 Bride Mr and Mrs Ronald Hlad, who were married at 7 p.m. June 13 in the Regular Baptist church here, are shown above. Mrs Hlad is the former Jane Dearchs, daughter of Mr and Mrs C. E. Dearchs of Algona. and Mrs Hlad is the son of Albert Hlad of Sylvan, Kansas Mrs Hind is a graduate of Algona high school and has been employed at Omaha. The bridegroom is a student at Baptist Bible Institute at Omaha. (Glenn's Studio photo - UDM Engraving) n •• »T *V Mrs Paul Palmer agreed with me when I told her she was like a contented hen with her brood of chicks, for she and her husband have the entire family close at hand for three weeks. The sons Leo and Jarnes arrived here Saturday from California, making the trip in a record time —one and half days. One drove while the other slept, but they were two very tired men when they got here. Leo is located at San Francisco and is employed by Lachman Brothers company, furniture store, in the drapery department. Leo lives at Pasadena and is taking a course in engineering at Pasadena Junior College. He went from Pasadena to San Francisco to join Leo for the trip home. Another s'on Charles is a theological student at Morningside college, Sioux City. For the summer he is employed with a construction company at Iowa Falls and will resume his studies in the fall. . * • • Mr and Mrs Max Mesing and son Wallace have gone to California where they will visit a daughter and son-in-law. They left Saturday night, planned to drive all night, and be in Albuquerque the next morning. SOME driving I'd say. They will spend a couple of weeks at Long Beach with their son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Bob Ellis. I suppose they will take the desert at night too. A good, idea this time of year. * * * I was at Webster City and Fort Dodge Sunday with Merna Orton and her son Web. We pulled up at Treloar's drive-in for cpld drinks and another car pulled in beside us. It was Max Bartholomew who had come from Des Moines after seeing his father Maurice who had undergone surgery the previous day. He is getting along very well, Max said. Rather ironical, twins being sick at the same time. Fred has also been at the Veterans hospital, Des Moines for major surgery. * « « High school "grads" of 1907 had a two day celebration of their fiftieth anniversary. I will teh you more about it next week after the event has transpired. So far all I know is that the graduates and their spouses are having a dinner at the Algona hotel Friday evening and a coffee Saturday at Hazel Lusby's. She and Capitola Sample have been very busy with the arrangements, from the Jnvitiations to the entertain- ,ment. It is one hundred years ago since the first school was organized *-- a summer session which began in July 1857. The "school" was held in the Town Hall, built on the site of,the present "Hub" clothing store.i This building was fine for summer use but in winter it was not so pleasant, though stoves provided heat of sorts. The Town Hall was used for various meetings, political rallies, and "get-togethers." Flavia Fleming was the first teacher. I don't know how long she taught — I wrote an item on schools for the Centennial three years ago but some facts I have not retained. The first school was built in 1867 on the site of the old Central brick building and now the site of the high school. It was a frame building costing $3,000 and built by my great-grandfather. James Henderson. Imagine a cost of only $3,000! One room would cost more than that now. While on the subject of schoo' I am reminded that a classmate of mine was in town a few weeks ago — Zula Ely now Mrs L. B Long, of San Diego, Calif. She was a guest of Mr and Mrs Harry Ward, neighbors. I wish Harry or Nan had thought to bring Zula over just to say "Hello." I was never a close friend of Zula's but the fact she was in my class, meeting her again would have been interesting. Wonder if she has changed as much as I. « * • Rev. and Mrs L. Leonard Nelson enjoyed what I'd call a "good old fashioned" July 4th celebration. They drove to Litchfield, Minn., and attended the Beckville Parish annual picnic — a good old style dinner of mounds of fried chicken, potato salad, baked beans, pickles — and all that goes with these things. Um-n>| And I hope the good old freezer of homemade ice cream was there. A program followed and the Rev. Nelson gave an address on "Secure Under Our Flag and the Christian Cross." Mrs Nelson was busy the previous week at Lake Okoboji where she was camp nurse with a group of girls, 226 in number, at a camp sponsored by the church. The girls were from the various churches of the Iowa Conference. They spent from June 23 to 29 there and it goes without saying that the outing was greatly enjoyed. Girls from here in attendance were Linda Percival, Kendra Seeley and Patricia Schulz. I've heard of another way to keep llowers longer. This is for roses only . Put the stems in Balding water for a brief time— a minute is' sufficient — then place them in cool water, as usual. They last several days, and you know roses seldom stay nice but a day or two. • * > What made me think of preservation of roses was /the bouquet of them sent to me by Mrs John Schimmel. They were lovely — I'll add thanks again to those I already gave her via phone. Glen Raney has a way with flowers too. He and Ruth were here the other evening and when the subject of flowers came up, it was Ruth who mentioned the hot water treatment. Glen raises many varieties of flowers, "glads" in particular, and he reports a delphinian 42 inches long.

Oh the fishing is O.K if there is some one along to put the worm on the hook and t ike the fish off. The picnic lunch is FINE. Food always is so .i;o»ri paten put of doors and especially by a river or lake. And the companionship is enjoyable too — but deliver me from worms and fish! The woman? Dorothy Hag?. She and some friends were preparing to go fishing when T '">''ed there the other day. It was her first such excursion. 1 must call and sec how many fish they caught. I '.'onlrl bring myself to string n bit of steak on a hook but I'd still v.nnl Sdine one to "un-fish" it. Ye?. I'm just a "cream puff." C'.inr to think of it, 1 dr^n't believe Li/zie Post and Hazel Lusby li;;vr? ever used the bells they b-.'iiKM ;it Davenport a few year's apo. S'irr.f.' fisherman sold them en the idea of putting bells on the hne. When the fish bites. the bell rings and rouses you from the nap you are presumably taking while on the "l;i/y river."
