-** 4- B-Algono (»o.) Upper DM Moinet Thursdoy, Get. 1?, 195? Tjdbih From Evelyn Gordon Kuhn and John Kain have c no on one of their famous fishmr. t'ips again, way up to La Pa<=. That might be O.K. when lo\v;i is broiling under summer suns, but this time of year a point so far north has no attraction for tne — except the EXCELLENT fish which I have been so fortunate to have presented by Gordon. » » * Jim Allen has been off duly at the liquor store a few days. Some years ago he suffered a leg injury and since then has had to be a little careful on activities He has been very busy getting the Allen grocery ship-shape and has been on a ladder at rather long periods of time. That position is definitely not good for an ailing leg and Jim is glad the ladder business is finished. He has gone back to work but still isn't quite recovered. * * * Well, Halley's comei in it's day caused just as much furore as Spootnik, only we didn't have radio and T.V. to exploit it so much. Sometimes I think the "good old days" ARE that, don't you? » * • Mr and Mrs O. B. Laing have been visited by Mrs Laing's sister, Mrs Ethel Kaup of Corwin, Kan. Mrs Kffup has been postmaster at Corwin since she was appointed February 1, '1940. She is now retired and plans to make her home at Wichita. * • » Last Tuesday was a day set aside for going to Fairmont, to spend the day with my friend, Mrs Clarence Pannkuk. Came the morning, misty, rainy and completely disagreeable.. So we decided the best thing to do was stay at hom'e. By "WE" I mean Mabel Livingston, Esther and Me, The next day was much better for out-of-town trips so we headed for Mason City. I asked Mabel to take the old Clear Lake road so we could see the much touted "Venician Villiage". At the risk of bringing down the enmity Of the Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce or the managers of the promotion company, I'll say Venician Village" looked anything but Venician to me. So far it is first cousin to a drainage ditch. ' * » • After reaching Mason City I phoned by cousin Julia Cady and invited her to join us for lunch at the Green Mill. It must have been Algona day for there we met Mrs John McGuire and hei sister Gladys Burtls, and Mrs Corrinne Burgener and son John. We also saw Francis Holtzbauer. Shortly after that I met Harold Clark and a son of Bancroft. Now Harold is my second — no, it's third cousin, and we sorta got acquainted. I know his parents very •well, the late Frank Clark and Mayme Chapin Clark when they lived here. Not long after that, »s we were going along the street, we met 'Gertrude Sheridan (Mrs Edward Kelly) She was librarian here several years and will have many friends who remember her. * * * R§* Port threw a teat* info his family the other day. He was making a cardboard dog-house, the knife slipped and cut his thumb so badly he had to be rushed to a doctor and have three stitches taken. It was a day of disaster for Joan broke her glasses at school. * * « The day we planned io go to Fairmont, Mrs Gilles was going with us as far as Swea City, her former home. It is just as well our plans were changed, for had we gone, she would have missed a call from her friend Mrs Fred Mehie and son-in-law and daughter, Mr and Mrs John Eckland. They would have passed us on the road. The Ecklands recently bought Mrs Gilles' home at Swea City just across the road from Mrs Mehie. She also had a chat the same day with the Rev. and Mrs Hammer, of Swea City, so you see "it's an ill wind—etc." A day or two later Mrs William Thompson and Mrs Harold Jones also of Swea City called on her so she says she won't have to go "traveling" — she's had her nice visit. * * * A year ago Mrs Margaret Up- mann came from Bonn, Germany to visit her friend, Mrs James Whittemore, who lived in Germany. Now the time is up and she must return home, a journey she is making very reluctantly for she has loved being here and thinks United States is a wonderful country. Mrs Whittemore and I agreed that the German people are a fine race. They have always ranked high in science, music and the other arts. They were misguided by a crazy fanatic at a time when economic conditions left them easy prey. Hazel Lusby, Lizzie Post and I are leaving tomorrow morning (Friday) for Davenport and will spend a few days with Mr and Mrs A. L. Long. We are going via Dubuque, will stop to say "Hello" to Bob and Meredith Holzhammer, thence along the "Father of Waters" to our destination. We also plan to see Betty and Raymon Henry at Moline. They lived in our apartment once upon a time and will be remembered by Algonans. 55 YEARS Linus and Frank Swansori were united in Chariton recently after not seeing one another f °r 55, years.
