Tidbits From Evelyn Music lovers will be disappointed at not hearing my cou« sm Edwin Cady of Houston, •f, ex 7 Play pipe organ in the Methodist church Sunday morning. He is organist at the Riverside Memorial Methodist church there and has held that position over 15 years. He is rated among the top musicians of the city and many who have heard him here are aware of his ability. 1 had promised several persons who love music that when he came'again he would play at the church. Circumstances prevented him from playing Sunday morning. 1 was greatly disappointed for 1 love his music so much, and many friends will join me in the regrets. » * * 1 have been looking over the Lawrence Welk fcook my Esther brought back from her recent trip to California. There are autographs of most of the personnel and a napkin bears the signatures of Lawrence Welk, Maurice Pearson and Dick Dale added "To The Hen House. Best Always." He also dedicated a song to the Iowa visitor, the Aliens, Van Aliens and guests. * * * In 1924 mother and I saw the first "Ten Commandments" at Grauman's Egyptian theatre. It was a wonderful show and was booked at the old Call theatre several months after we had returned home. We went to see it the second time. My Esther saw the 1957 version and I hope it will be at the Algona theatre before too long. The Algona group also went to Cinerama, "The Seven Wonders of the World" and as I have so often said, " 'Tis a small world." Among the hundreds of persons who were seeing the "Commandments", in walked Mrs Alex Dermand and Kathy and Mrs Kenneth Samp and youngest son. Esther could hardly believe her eyes and the eji-Al- gonans were equally astonished. . • • • Other ex-Algonans whom they saw were Mr and Mrs Jim Hudson of Fillmore. They called on the "travelers." Jim is a brother of Oran Hudson and son of Mr nnd Mrs Paul Hudson of Fenton. He is a nephew by marriage of Esther. • Esther also called on Elizabeth St. John Libott. I have mentioned her from time to time in my column. She has had multiple sclerosis a number of years and I was pleased to learn she is In better condition than I had thought. Mrs Owen Hurl was a liltle perturbed that she might gain weight during the fair. She had charge of making chocolate malts for the young "4-Hers" and with temptation on hand — what can a person do? I am susceptible to chocolate malts too so I can see the predicament Mrs Hurt was in. Everything GOOD is so full of calories. Calories — I HATE the word. • » • Again proof of mtf favotlte quotation — Mr and Mrs Har« old Palmer moved to Denver, Colo., some time ago, and one day recently she was -sitting on the porch. A familiar looking person walked past, aftd there it was, Ralph Faith of Longmont, Colo. She called to him, sure enough, it was a former Al«- gonan, and Mrs Faith and the family were contacted and all had coffee at Mrs Palmers. • • n My cousin Edwin asked about Dr. Janse. I gave him the latest reports I knew — said he was fine after his sickness of last Winter. Edwin added that he played for the wedding of the daughter of Dr. and Mrs Hector Janse of Houston. The bride, you see, is granddaughter of our Doc Janse. • * * ..... A note from Esther E. Uhr of Swea City gives the interesting information that she went to Ft. Dodge, August 8, to meet a "pen pal" Mrs Richard Muhleman of Kirkwopd, 111., with whom she has been in correspondence since 1937. Algonans will recall that the Rev. W. .G. Muhleman was district superintendent of the Methodist church here a few years ago. He is at present Chaplain at Friendship Haven, the Methodist home foe the aged at Fort Dodge. The Rev. Richard Muhleman is a cousin of W. G. M. and he and his wife and daughters Gloria and Linda witl> the former's parents, recently came to Fort Dodge to visit the relatives and arrangements were made for the."pen pals" to meet. * * * . Glenn Maudain sent a "Rotary News" bulletin from Rock Hills, S. C. with -this marked 'paragraph. Mr Ainsley H. Roseen, associate editor of the Rotarian, informed us that they would use in our magazine the article and pictures of our club giving the physical therapy equipment to the York county hospital. Mr Naudain added that the club raised $2750 for this project and that he had written it up and New Pastor At Swea City Baptist Church * Rev. E. L. Carter, new pastor of First Baptist church, moved here August 1 from his former pastorate in Comanche, Iowa, and began his duties Sunday morning. He was born in Wellman and completed high school in Kalpna. He attended York College, York, Neb., and graduated from Iowa State Teachers College.

Algona CY 4-3535 The older Algonans will remember Mr and 'Mrs Andrew Norwood who moved to Tacoma, Wash, many years ago. And if they are like me, the first thing that' comes to mind is the "Lady Norwood, a little steamer that plied the waters up the Des Mpihes river to a picnic spot two miles distance. As a little tot I rode that boat and will never fdrget the thrill of trailing.-my hand over the edge -^ prpbaibly trying to reach water. '' '.' To Mr and Mrs Norwood was born a son Thomas E. Norwod and to him and his wife Ruby M. was born Thomas Eldon Norwood at Puyallup, Wash., March 5, 1931. The family moved to Tacoma when Tom was three years old and have resided on McKmley Hill ever since. This son Thomas was ordained to the Christian ministry Sunday evening, July 14. This item is of particular interest because the Rev. Thomas Norwood is a great-nephew of Cleve Barton. • * • The Rev. and Mrs Robert Holzhammer of Dubuque were callers here Sunday and brought with them a lovely bouquet from Mrs Holzhammer (Meredith's) parents Mr and Mrs Glen Raney.

It was nice tc have my anniversary remembered, i - • « ., » 3 How mail does! pet fowled un now andjthen. MyrEsther had an; important bit of mail she wanted forwarded to her. as soon as ll came to her address here/so she! bought an air mail stamp, ad-> dressed the envelope with the name and to the place she was to be guest, and put her return address in the, upper left hand corner. The mail was received 9t my front doer,. I placed it in the envelope and by the time tho carrier came pasi on the rest of the delivery, it was placed in his hands. A few days later the le{ter came back stamped. "Urj- known in Burbank — Return to sender." And the joke is the address was correct and the person has lived there many years — name perfectly correct too. So— what happened? A rookie mail clerk? I suppose if I were to see all the mail that is handled, I'd wonder how ANY of it gets to. the right place. * • » I am about Jo embark on making "Rosebud diapers" to send to the "Hobby sales" f|r the handicapped. Looks like a very complicated affair from the pieces of the pattern which were recently sent me by a friend. The pattern looks very much like a jig-saw puzzle.
