That's what it is — small change — the pennies and nickles that buy big electrical values. Nothing more than small change will buy food freezing, workfree washdays, hot water and a houseful of convenience. Think about it. Electricity is today's biggest value. Practical, work saving appliances, wonderful recreational aids — all ^or just pennies a day. Algona Municipal Utilities Phone CY 4-2333 The only thing thai happened to mar an otherwise perfect trip was experienced last week by Mrs Carrie St. John and Mrs George Schueller who had driven to Las Cruces to visit Mr and Mrs James Schueller. the daughter and. son respectively. After having driven through the mountains, rath' and fog, it was ironic to have an accident happen in such a simple way. As they neared Clark, Neb., they reached a forty-mile zone and were following a 73 year old man in •£ car who in turn was following, a bus. The bus stopped at a gas station, the man became confused he said, and didn't turn out as would be expected of him. The car of the women rammed into him, caused $300 damage and threw Mrs Schueller agamslfUte top of the windshield, loosened her lower teeth and she also suffered a knee injury. Mrs St. John was thrown against the windshield, her forehead was cut and three stitches had to be taken. After receiving care from a doctor, they took a room at a motel near the gas station, and went to bed to sleep off the effects of a harrowing experience. They iXtere met Sunday by Mrs Schuetter's relatives Mr and Mrs Ray Hbgan of Fort Dodge and .brought, home. No, the elderly •man wasn't hurt. ' • • * I had & caller the other after* noon, a former resident here who will be well remembered by older Algonans. My recollections of the family are vague but I do remember the "Lady Norwopd," named for the family. It was C. A. Norwood of Tacoma, Wash., who called and he is here visiting his brother-in-law and sister- in-law, Mr and Mrs Cleve Barton. According to his statistics 1 was about four years old when the little steamer plied the waters of the Des Moines river north of town. Who could imagine enough water in that river to float the smallest of boats, let alone a steamer big enough for 25 or 30 passengers. The Norwoods left Algona many years ago and my caller was employed by the railroads as car clerk. He is now retired and the nice part of it is ,he has a pass which entitles him to travel anywhere in the United States, Mexico and Canada. WHAT a break! Or privilege, I should say. * * * Mr Norwood mentioned oth*t Algonans now located at Tacoma —Melvin Muckey, negotiatef for business men and unions and right now is having trouble settling a strike which has been "boiling" since last August. Henry Willey, well known Algona lad also went to Tacoma many years ago. He was on the police force and was retired a year ago or so. A Tacoma papef had a big write-up about him and said he was coming back to Iowa and his farm. ' It was pretty vague and "a farm in Iowa" covers a lot of territory. The farm is near LuVerne but so far I have heard nothing of his return . * * * Ruth Winkel Stolie also lives at Tacoma. Her parents were the late Mr and Mrs Frank Winkel. Mr Winkel had a butcher shop in the west half of the present ''Ben Franklin" store. I can still see the beef and hog halves hung on hooks along the walls, the saw dust on the floor under the carcasses, the huge barrels of pickles and sauerkraut, and one j time. Buena Reed (Dodge) and I 1 were in there and saw a barrel of peculiar looking merchandise. Our curiosity got the better of us and we asked what it was. "Tripe," Mr Winkel replied. Tripe didn't mean a thing to us-— we knew no more than we did before, but our curiosity didn't stop there and we finally found out, what tripe is. No, 1 don't care: for any, thank you. * * • Harry Sutton who at one time had a dry cleaning establishment, here also felt the call of the west.. He is quite crippled with arth'<' ritis now. ,^ Neva Patterson (Mrs Collyer Potter) lives at Portland, 'Ore. She has not been in good health for awhile and didn'.t feel able to make the trip back last August to attend the fiftieth anniversary gathering of the high school class of 1907. Mr Norwood also mentioned Bertha Tellier of Seattle, Wash., Wilfred Jones and the Hoteling sisters of Whittemore who went to the northwest too. And Cleve and Harry Lantry, well known here. * * * Abner Long was mentioned too, and Mr Norwood wondered if he remembered when he was a lad in high school and decided to earn some extra money by working on the section. Certain tools were used to uproot weeds and Ab, a tall fellow, was given a short handled instrument which made him bend almost double. His back suffered from this and Ab was on the verge of complete "etirement" from the job but Mr Norwood traded tools, and the next day Abner was given a spade with a handle of comfortable length. C. A.'s brother Ole will be well remembered too for he had an active part in the steamer project. Unfortunately he has not been well and was placed in a mental hospital some time ago. Mr Norwood was here during Algona's centennial celebration and he enjoys very much talking of the "good old days." Tie has also visited the Andrews families in the Burt and Bancroft vicinities and the Ted Hoovers at Doan. * • * friends of Edwin Laing, son of Supt. and Mrs Otto B. Laing will be interested in learning that he has written an article "Matchmakers" which deals with the California Employment Agencies and published in the magazine "San Diego." "Ed" is in service and located at San Diego. His wife is the former Mary Bruch and the couple has a small daughter Karen. » » * Mr and Mrs Joe WUlger and Mrs Rose Potter of Son Francisco were dinner guests recently of Mr and Mrs Irvin Kramer at Bancroft and for the first time rode in an airplane. Mr Kramer has a plane and took them for a ride over the country. His little daughter Pamela is a "flight fan" and had great fun sitting on the lap of her aunt, Mrs Willger. I'm glad I've been up too. It makes an interesting conversation topic. * * * There was great excitement in the John Hopkins family after the party Halloween. The daughters Pamela and Patricia were dressed for the parade, Pamela as a "Spooknik" and Patricia as a witch. Pamela won sweepstakes prize and came home so excited it was a hard time getting her calmed down and ready for bed. » • * A consistory meeting was held from Wednesday through Saturday at Des Moines. Among those who attended were J. B. Asa, Don and Bob Deal and Al Rode. Mrs Bob Deal and Mrs Rode joined their husbands Saturday to attend the banquet.

Jay and Mrs MeDougall Sr. celebrated their birthdays Sunday. I was at an informal party Thursday afternoon and Evalyn was there and working on the cutest sweater to take to "Kris." It was knit of a pretty shade of blue yarn and on the front at each side were little white kittens of angora wool, knit right into the sweater. It's the cutest thing I've seen in a long time. Evalyn got the pattern from Esther Helberg who had knit one for a grandchild, Dougie Schenck, t believe was the child. At least Jt was for one of the Lee Schenck's children. There was even a pink bow knit into the pattern and around the kitten's neck. Evalyn said when "Kris" sees it sh€ will 8«y, "Oh-h-h, putty putty." And she will be light, for it IS mighty PURTY.
