I will confess now to whom it belongs, for the engagement and wedding date have been announced. It is for Dorothy Hagg whose wedding will take place September 22. The groom- elect is Bob Tolsdorf, of Cylinder. The quilt was started in March nt Evelyn McDougall's and the few of us have met each week to work on it. I have the honor of taking the first stitches in it and the last. The final stitches were taken in Ambrose Call State park at a picnic celebration. "Now for the quilting which is to be hired done—and lo! A family heirloom! Ricki Pott *tcBtnp«rf*<i hi grandmother Elizabeth and me to a matinee the other day and on the way home we stopped in a "dime store" to carry out a bargain between Rick and grandma. A price had been agreed upon and Rick, like all of us, chose the more expensive things; but was amiable when told it went beyond the agreed cost. But I thought he said "a.mouthful" when he remarked philosophically. "I get so disappointed when I don't get what I want." My Esther it returning today from a two weeks vacation in California. She accompanied her sisters Nellie Van Allen, Bernadine Allen and Jim and Jack Allen. Esther and Nellie were to be guests of Nellie's son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs Lloyd Keith at Burbank and the Aliens were guests of the son and dau- ghler-in-law. Mr and Mrs Bill Allen at Santa Monica. Among the interesting things they were to see was a Lawrence Welk broadcast. Esther wrote they went to "The Ten Commandments," and 1 am sure they will see Knott's Berry Farm, Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Disney land, and they'll probably see "Around thf World." find Cine- rama. * » * While <** were suffering with the heat a scant fortnight ago Mr and Mrs Hnrold Kuchen- reuther, Larry, Barbara and Karen were enjoying the chill of Pikes Peak up some 14,000 feet and doing the interesting sights at Denver, Colorado Springs and Yellowstone National Park * * * Abdul thai tame time Mr and Mrs Floyd Shackelford, former residents here now living at Davenport, were visiting Floyd's brother-in-law and sister, Mr and Mrs Les Browning at Los Angeles. Going across the desert would have been quite an ordeal but for the air conditioner in the car. It was 100 degrees at L. A. and Californians may say "Oh, it Wasn't so bad," but Floyd summed the whole thing up when he said, "It's HOT anywhere at 100." They were not particularly impressed with California and were glad to get back to Davenport. The congested highways are the first thing "foreigners" complain about and the ShackelfoYds were happy to head for home. Floyd is em'- ployed as traveling salesman for the Midland Cutting Tool company of Rock Island, 111. "Oh Come, Phyllis. You've Heard of Travelers Checks." Protects you against loss or theft. Cashable anywhere, anytime, without question. Avoids necessity of carrying large sums on your person. Costs only $1.00 per hundred dollars. Travelers Checks - best way to check money worry and care when you travel. IOWA STATK Quite frequently we hear of persons having surgery to correct the shapes of noses—in fact quite a number of movie anc professional persons have hac such surgery done, so now Chris Bowen, grandson of Mrs Anna Madson has joined the ranks 01 the famous. His surgery was not in the interests of beauty— it was to correct a break of some years ago when he played football. The injury had begun to affect his breathing. Mrs Madson reports the surgery has greatly improved his looks as well as his physical condition. • * • Mrs William Shackelford was recently visited by the Rev. and Mrs O. R. Brooks of the Open Very Whole Gospel church at Topeka, Kan. They previously lived at Titonka till four years ago when they moved to Kansas. The Rev. Brooks was pastor at the Grace Gospel chur-ch at Titonka. * * » When I mentioned Prof. Pike recently, I couldn't think of his first name. Neither could Laura Palmer to whom I was talking. She phoned me the other day and came up with MILTON. That doesn't ring a bell with me, but she may be right. If anyone hinks of his name, phone me CY 4-3796—I'll pass the word on .o Laura. [THESE WOMEN! V|MMl»«|ijiia*|gM^ii«aii«>^^ /few** Wft«M«|fftn wasn't out by noon, did yoq alto charge HIM for an extra day?? ""* Bill and. Mary Barry were made, happy by a call from their niece and husband, Mr and Mrs Jerome Voigt and Susan of Mount Pleasant.' Mrs Voigt is the former Kathleen Holtzbauer. She will be remembered as a daughter of the late Mr and Mrs-Joe Holtzbauer. Bill's sister, Mrs C. B. M. Smith, of Des Moines has also been here. She is the former Mayme Barry whom I recall as being very attractive. Her hair was naturally curly and beautiful. How I envied her years ago The Voigts also have a son Steven who was unable to ac- company the family. They had also been at Eagle Grove to see Kathleen's Sister, the former Roseanne Hdltzbauer, Mn angry man is Sylvester T.

'A young friend \>f mine is going around with a stiff back and has learned to seat himself carefully while a few broken ribs mend. His wife, a bride of a few weeks, ih housewifely zeal to make things neat and "shipshape" had waxed the floors and hadn't thought it necessary to mention the fact. Her young husband was called to the phone, hadn't quite finished dressing after a shower and didn't stop to put on his slippers. Dashing out onto the newly waxed floor, his feet shot out from under him and he was unable to even get up off the floor for awhile. A doctor taped him and the young husband recalls the old story about Adam and the rib he lost to Eve. And I won't tell the names of the young couple. «• • • Mr and Mrs Glen Snider celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary August 10. The day was somewhat marred by the :houghts of going to Iowa City Monday where Mr Snider will enter University hospital. It is possible surgery will be necessary. Mr Snider has not been well for some time. Last week I should have written BETTY Barry Berrie. Instead of I had Mary, Betty's-mother. The sub-conscious does queer things now and then—and sometimes oftener. When Mrs Harold Peter told me she had Leatrice Joy as a weekend guest, my mind sped back to 1924 when a movie actress by that name was a gopd box office attraction. She married a Gilbert-Roland was his first name I believe, and they had a daughter. Leatrice was a very lovely woman. Wonder what has become of her. * * • When I had a card from th Abner Longs saying they wer heading west, I. wondered jus where they would be—the wes covers a very large territory. Mj curiousity was appeased thi. morning when a card came say ing they were in the Jackson hole country up in the Teton mountains. LONE ROCK By Mrs Clarence Kraft Moral: You're paying for a new car... make sure you get one! When you buy a new car, put your money on tomorrow—not yesterday, Swept-Wing Dodge actually obsoletes other cars in its field. Should you invest- in high, boxy styling when Dodge offers the low, low look of tomorrow? Should you invest in outmoded coil springs when Dodge offers new Torsion-Aire Ride? Should you'invest in an old-fashioned lever-type transmission when Dodge e£ers the ease of Push-Button Driving? Jn other things, too—engines, brakes, interiors—Dodge is years ahead. So put your money on tomorrow. See your Dodge dealer. Join the swing to the Sw^t-Wing Oodge! Mr and Mrs Kenneth Richards and family were guests for dinner Sunday at the M. O. Richards home.
