October 17,1957 ftfje Sllgonn Upper jWotncS October 17,1957 «,. - ., R °f al Highness, Queen Elizabeth II of Britain is coming to Canada and the United States She s going to bring her husband along. The trip has been planned foi ,two years. England won wars and added to the empire in the past with fewer details and HONSBRUCH'S Rexall Ic Sale ENDS SATURDAY! logistics problems than apply to this visit. Every little thing was considered, including the time to be spent in bathrooms, and I'm just wondering if about halfway along in the tour, Elizabeth and Phillip might not have a hankering to cut the pomp and circumstance, let down their hair a little and relax. That's why I'm considering asking them to come to Algona to visit us. • * * * I realize that a visit of this sor involves some sacrifice and lot of re-shuffling of schedules bu with some sharp thinking it can be done. I can just as well was! on Thursday if the Queen decides to come the first of the week anc maybe for once I can skip the phoning for items for Arounc Algona, and that skirt I've been planning to hem for Jeanie wil have to wait. Since they aren' bringing their children, anyway t can have our kids take hot .unch at school. It won't be easy 'or me to entertain company •ight now; I can, manage it but t can't do it all myself. If Elizabeth wants to come and see us, she'll have to co-operate, too. 1 THESE; WOMEN! RUMMAGE AND BAKE SALE CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH Saturday, OCT. 19 8A.M. TO 12 NOON 42 _^•_ m*um ••••••*•*gg^,,^«^^(MlMMMMMWMM^M^^r- "You see* Mother—cars DO sometimes run out of ga» on a lonely roadl" I'm not going to let Bill Steel. of the Chamber of Commerce in on my plans to invite Elizabeth and Philip. If Bill hears about it, he'll get the high school band out and have a parade. That's the sort of thing Elizabeth and Philip get every day and they may be getting sick and tired of it. Besides, Bill's got one queen —Jan Clark from the Algona Band Festival. He can just as well let me have mine. « * * I don't exactly know what I'll do about sleeping arrangements f my guests decide to stay overnight. Our house is pretty crowded and all the beds are till. I could send the girls over o Grandma's to stay all night if ier spare room isn't rented and Elizabeth and Philip could sleep n the bunk beds. I'll have to warn the one who gets the top >unk about that overhanging eiling to prevent a bumped iead and I'll have to get Father The Friendly Store, GRIP to fix thaj; hole in the bathroon) linoleum. I'm short on decent pillow cases and I'll have to borrow some but if they sleep in the girls' room at least they'll be getting the. best blankets in the house. * * * I read in the paper that Elizabeth has 50 dresses for her American tour. After she wears them only once, they are burned! This is to avoid hurting people's feelings because they might think the Queen didn't think enough of their shin-dig to buy a new outfit specially for it. Shucks, Elizabeth, when you come to Algona, you can get by very nicely with a sweater and skirt with maybe one of those plaid jackets in case it gets cold. Honest, I won't be hurt if I've seen your outfit before and please don't Ihmk you have to burn anything. That's wasteful. I can let the lems down and wear them myself and if it still doesn't fit we chicken because there are special on them right now but if it' tender resist beef I'll have to fix it in the pressure cooker. M' oven door is still out of whack I'm sure sorry to learn that the queen is allergic to shellfish though. I did want to ask a few people over for a shrimp boil. * * * Pop will have to lake the day off when our company comes so Philip will have someone to talk with. All the time he has to take the back seat for his old lady (Philip, I mean) so it might be a relief to get away from her for a while. Pop could take him up to the fire station to shoot a little pool or they might run over to Lost Island for some fishing. • « * We'll all have to drive over lo West Bend to see the Grotto Everybody always takes out-of- town visitors to the Grotto and I haven't looked at it for a long time, myself. We'll show them the new courthouse and drive around to look at the new houses We'll take them up to tha'UDM office and show them the presses. Ill promise to send her a copy of the paper When it comes out in the Locals that they've been here. ' '•'-.' • ' v' * ' * * You , s > aren't supposed Jto say anything to the Queen unless she speaks- to you first. This ingoing to be hard, on me whefa they come to our house. Another problem is what to call them. I'll have to warn Father that, "Hiya, Babe" is no way to greet Queen Elizabeth. He should call her Mrs Edinburgh or Mrs Windsor. I'm going to a»k permission to skip the "Your Royal Highness" stuff. It sounds too stilted when a queen is helping you with the dishes. • Prince. Philip has said that he prefers to be called, "Sir." He says calling him, "Prince" makes him want to sit up and bark. * • » Prince Philip also took a firm stand when it was suggested that it would be best for his son, Charles, to have a year or so ir an American school.

That's all right with me. I could stand to lose a couple of pounds, myself. Elizabeth, they say, enjoys a sip of champagne and loves spring lamb, young chicken and tender roast beef, so she shouldn't be too hard to cook for. I doubt if our budget can stand a purchase of champagne so if Elizabeth simply has to have a little snort short she can get along on a that Charles is in the same grade as' our Jeanie. It would be nice for her to have a boy friend who owns a couple of palaces. * * * . The reason I have not yet written to ask the Queen and the Prince to stop by is that I'm out of post cards and the post office is closed on Sunday. It is just as well that I didn't send the invitation for this minute I remembered that we have been iiven tickets to hear Senator Proxmire speak at the Plantation October 23. I don't want to miss ona. Too bad, too because I hink they'd like it here. * » * This week's recipe for Grape Juice Royal was chosen to blend in with the theme of the previous paragraphs but I suppose you could serve it even if your guests aren't any more regal than your sister-in-law and her new boy friend. It also would be good for bridge club. 2 6 oz. cans frozen grape juice concentrate 3 cups water Vi cup quick cooking tapioca Vz cup sugar 2 tablsp. butter 2 teasp. grated orange rind Vi cup maraschino cherries, chopped V4 cup walnut meats, chopped 1 tablsp. lemon juice 2 cups lady fingers, crumbled 1 pint heavy cream.
