Tidhits From Evelyn A few yea*! 890 young married women organized a sewing club they named "The Needles and Pins" club. Dues are 25 C a month, and after being }. n the treasury for all this time, wu na & p £ d off in a bj g way- When "My Fair Lady" was booked at Des Moihes, they got busy and sent for reservations, paid for put of this fund. They are driving down Wednesday morning, will take in the matinee and drive back so there will be no hotel bills. Members of the club J> artl £jpating are Mrs Don Asa, Mrs Max Bartholomew, Mrs Marvin Calhoun, Mrs John Hopkins, Mrs Raymond Johnson, Mrs Glenn Jones, Mrs Don Krause, Mrs Charles Hardgrove, Mrs John Lavigne, Mrs Dean Taylor, Mrs Rex Voyles, Mrs Herbert Weydert and Mrs Milton Will, Mrs Richard Burt and Mrs Roger Phillips accompanied the group. - • • * Friends el the Kenneth Samps who moved to Santa Mdnica, Calif., a few years ago will be interested in knowing the son Jerry was married last June 30, the rites taking place in the Methodist church at Santa Mon» ica. Another son Dick is in set- vice and is stationed at Fort Sill, Okla. He is engaged and his marriage will take place in a couple of months. * There* is a third son Wayne, who, I believe is In high school. 'Jerry and Dick were graduated from high school here. • * * Dick Pott recently sold hi* plane and now mother Elizabeth can breathe freely. Every time she knew he was sailing around in the air, she felt uneasy. Wonder how an "air truck" would be? Maybe Dick should get rfd of his ground variety and get an air vehicle. Wouldn't that be something? A ''sky-line", sb to speak. * • • I thought when the dial system was established, there would be no more wrong numbers. The other day I dialed and asked the answering party, "Is Lizzie there?" The voice answered "Yes" and when the next voice answered, it didn't quite sound like the Lizzie 1 was calling, I asked her for a cake recipe she had given me recently and I had mislaid, The voice said, "Cake recipe? 1 haven't given any recipes — who are vou supposed to be talking to?" I said, "Lizzie Post." She answered, "Well, this is Lizzie Erickson" and we had a good laugh. Then t dialed ftfloihet tittmba* a few nights ago. Before I could say a word a man's voice said, "We're on our way." "1 replied, "Where are we going?" A few words cleafed the air and 1 learned 1 was talking to Jack Allen who had supposed of course the phone call was for him and his parents, Mr and Mrs Jim Allen. They had been working at the new little store and were expected at the Dick Allen's for supper. » • * The biggest story of wrong numbers happened a few years ago. Whe"n I answered the phone a man asked "Is there?" I said "No, you have the wrong number." He wouldn't believe me and started a line of patter. I decided I could patter too. Then he said, "I'm at the hotel in room —. I have some nice stockings for the right girl." Well, at that time stockings were hard to get and he was offering quite an inducement. I told him he would be bitterly disappointed if I were to take him up oh the stocking deal. He never kneW who he was pitter- pattering with. • * • In the Fain family the Bills should be named $1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. The fifth Bill is young Bill recently born to Joan Fain and Vincent Bernado. There is Bill I, grandp*a Bill Nesbit, an uncle Bill Nesbit, an uncle Bill Fain and the Fain's son Bill. If that won't keep the family in a tizzy, what would? * * * I can plainly see I must change my views on house "face lifting."

The Mesing are going through such an of deal too — nothing where it belongs and such an upheave! it's thought unlikely the place will ever get back to normal. But isn't it nice when it's all done and everything is spick and span? • * t t had a chai wifft MM William J. Becker the other day. She told me the son ftichard N. Becker has gone to Boston, Mass., and has enrolled at the New England Conservatory of Music. He received his discharge at Myrtle Beach, S. C., after four years of service. Enroute east he stopped at Fair field to visit his brother Bill and wife who brought him home. Bill and his wife are teaching at Parsons college at Fairfield, and both attended summer school at Ann Arbor, Mich. • • * There haft been a family re* union at the Adrian Sterlings which was greatly enjoyed, but all good things have an end and now Jeanette and her husband Stanley Miller are headed for home, Costa Mesa, Cal. The daughter Oenevieve and her husband Tom Lundell and children came from Ankeny and joined another daughter Helen Passmore and David here at the parental home. • * • I heard a knock at my front door Saturday but couldn't get the door open in time till my caller had gone to the back door. Thank goodness she came to the front door again. I would' have hated to miss the chat with Maude Hutchison Dorweiler, and I would have missed the ground cherry preserves she brought. She too had read of my fondness for them, and like my first donor, Maude Blake, this Maude had also shared her stores with me. Bless you both, and my verbal thanks. • • • Mrs Clarence Fraser was here one afternoon recently. We got tp talking about "family trees." Her's is a very interesting one— she can trace her family back to English nobility — and she has promised to bring the book for me to read. I haven't found any Lords or Ladies in my geneology, but we do go back to over 300 years of residence in the New World and I enjoy reading it. I go over it every few years to refresh my memory. • • • I wish you could have seen the perfectly beautiful bouquet of pink asters Florence Hagg (Mrs Albert Hagg) provided for the gift table at the shower a few friends gave for Dorothy Hagg Saturday afternoon at Mabel Hutzell's (Mrs Roy Hutzell) They were perfect blossoms and such as different from ordinary heaters AS TV IS FROM RADIO!

The council, following A suggestion offered by Police Chief Al Boekelman, approved elimination of the final U-turn on the street at the corner of State a»d Hall streets. The corner, located southwest of the court house, has always been a nuisance arid at times resembled the paved track at Indianapolis as drivers jockeyed with others for position and a chance to turn around. Boekelman also suggested mak* ing McGregor street a through street, with stop signs ori the north and south side of the street at each intersection all the way through town. The project has been discussed previously, but never any action taken. It was tabled for further discussion by the council. After a short discussion of the possibility of a new building for the street department on north Hall street, a project which was defeated by vote a couple of years ago, building permits were granted to the Farm Bureau, St. Cecelia's church, Masonic lodge, Irvin Etherington, Richard Frambach, Leon Laird, Carrie Durant, Mrs Bertha Pommer, Ted Hoover, Sr. and M. J. Cunningham. big ones. • • • Connie Jergeiuon (Mrs Harold) sent her regrets. She is having a siege of hay fever. That is another invention of. the devil—if you will pardon the expression. • • • We were sorry Hazel Burns (Mrs Jimmie) had tp "regret" too. She would agree with me on the subject of arthritis, for she has been troubled with it for sometime. • * *. Would you like to know the other' hostesses? Well, Mabel Hutzell at whose house the shower was held, Mrs Albert Hagg, Mrs Elizabeth Post, Mrs George Scuffham and daughter, Janet and I. We had each person bring their favorite recipe for the bride-elect. • * • I'd like to write a column on decorum. It would contain some sharp criticism of teen agers who slump in theatre seats and drape their legs over the tops of the seats in front. Girls, I am sorry to say, are the majority of the offenders. And while I am in a critical mood, it will relieve me to remark that directors are laboring under a false impression if they think picturing a man guzzling liquor and tea carts being shunted back and forth with full and empty glasses and bottles is funny. • * * A card this morning from Dorothy Campbell, Seattle, Wash., where she recently moved reads, "We arrived a week ago today. The trip was beautiful. The weather has been quite cool. In fact every-evening,we've had a fire in the fireplace. Soon as we are settled I'm looking forward to getting the Algona paper again. I really miss it. Regards to all—" Jbhn Adams was the first U.S. ambassador to England.
