(lo.) Upper D«» Moines Thursday, F*b. 25, 1965 February 2 - Sadly this I add another to my list of friends wtio have passed away Ada Maluep, whom 1 have known since I was a little girl. 1 knew her when she \vas Ada Peters and was employed at the Gardner Copies to look after the little ones, John and Gardner Jr. I was frequently in the Cowles homo to play <vith Bertha, a classmate. 1 lost track of her after the Cowles moved to Des Moines, then renewed my acquaintance when she came back to live and was then Mrs. Leonard Malueg. She was a cultured woman, a lover of good music and had she not chosen to lie a housewife and mother, 1 am sure could have gone a long way in music. She was a devoted Christian, always ready to do more than her share in any church project, a frequent caller at Good Samaritan and we will miss her greatly. I am plad she could spend her last days witli members of her family. Apologizes to the Monrovia Chamber of Commerce and Albert Hagp out there. I said it was 95 degrees - it was ONLY 90! With snow blowing and falling quite heavily, Mr. Nasby is taking several of the women who had distances to walk homo, and one came without snow boots. One of the girls who has tomorrow off, Jeanette Wichtendahl, Lotts Creek, braved the weather to go home. I hope she doesn't land in a ditch and hope her car behaves. I was glad the Ed Haggs got back from Decatur, 111., a day ahead of what they had intended. Yesterday's roads were good they said, but. today would change the picture. They had gone there to attend funeral services for an uncle of Velma's. * * * I have written to the Clarence Morse who was inquiring about the temperature here on his birthday, Feb. 2, 1887. 1 couldn't find anyone who knew the family. Mrs. Murtagh didn't remember either, and the only Morse I knew delivered me, I was told. He had an only son, Willie, who was in my class at school. Dr. Morse had an Beverly Urch, Former Algona Girl, To Wed Mr. and Mrs. Irving Leslie Urch, former Algonans, now of Greenville, South Carolina, announce the engagement of their daughter, Beverly Irene, alx>ve, to Mr. Floyd Hay Brown, son of Mrs. Jack Brown of Virginia Beach, Va., and the late Mr. Brown. Miss Urcli will graduate from Bob Jones University, Greenville, S. C., in June. Mr. Brown also attends the University. A June 4 wedding is being planned at Southside Baptist church in Greenville. Miss Urch's brother, Rev. Allxn-t E. Urch, will perform the ceremony. interesting history. He and his first wife were divorced, then he married a little short woman who dressed in knickers and blouse, as did Doc and they did a lot of motorcycling. After her death, he married Georgia Fisher and they went to California. They were divorced and he then married a Doxsee girl. The first Mrs. Morse married a Charley Coughenour and they had a son. All at once Charley dropped out of the picture and after years came back to California - it seems to me his son died; • At-any- rate, if I' am riot greatly mistaken, he arid Mrs. Coughenour were reunited. Well, so much for ancient history. * * __± As I said, I don't remember t'iis M'lsr f.imily, yet it sort «>f viiu-s a \*>\\ that he may l:.m> liffii :n.iM.u;fr of tho North I"'.v.i l,uni!" r Co., which took in tho half Murk \vlirrr tho Dairy ',uir'i-ii aii'l Food store is. 1 nrall a Mr. and Mrs. Alf- \Vhiff and a Mr. and Mrs. ninkc, \\M- men InMne managers.

I had a date with Horace King for after Ejnvurth League and "Shortie" Lowe was witli me at the meetim;. It was getting borosomr - I'd much rather be outside? that nice spring evening, so I convinced "Sliortie" it would Ixj a ;;ood idea to slip out quietly, go through the minister's study, then back of the pipe organ, onto the- pulpit platform, then down the side aisle to the great outdoors - and "Hump". I slipped on the steps leading to the aisle, landed on one knee and when I say it hurt, that is a great understatement. "Shortie" wont outside as I told her, and asked" "Hum])" to ('o to Burkes and borrow tho wagon to f;et me home. Can't you picture that romantic situation? Well, "Hump" was all sympathy and cooperation and called on me devotedly the week I was out of school. Miss Coate gave me a desk in one of the recitation rooms as it was hard to go up and down stairs to and from assembly room - and I fin- Dished out the year with only one trip up stairs to physics class, which I loathed. If it hadn't been my year for graduation, I think I'd have balked at going up, but I HAD to have that credit to graduate, and I couldn't let my class graduate without me. All of which proves the wages of - well, not SIN, but misdemeanor we'll call it and you can finish the sentence. * * * I had such a nice visit via phone the other night with Mabel Samson. She planned to spend a few,..months-in Florida with, her son, Vic and wife; but her doctor advised against it for the time being.

As I mentioned before, Melvin Henderson is now in the real estate business and closed his first deal Feb. 1. He says he has a nice office, likes his associates very much, and the two girls in the office are very .cooperative, good looking and efficient. I warned him about "lap sitting". But I think he can take care of himself! He's past the "dangerous age", I am sure. * * * Many who read this column will be glad to hear news of Mrs. Gilles. She had supper with me tonight, ate heartily, read the newspapers and was in a cheerful mood. She isn't the Mrs. Gilles of bygone years, but she is still sweet and we had a nice little visit. She has forgotten many old friends, but I am happy she remembers me and I am always glad when she comes down. bers little things? Leota Geigel and I remember our post office box numbers way back when it was located in the building just west of the Honsbruch drug store. Miss Dodds had a book and stationery business in the west half of the office. Leota's family, the George Hack- mans, was 122. Ours was 363. Little did we dream we'd have house delivery not too many years later. * * * A card from Alice Ditsworth sent from Bountiful, Utah, says, "This mountain overlooks Apache Junction. Mrs. Curtis (former Algonan) and I were out to see Mabel Livingston (also former Algonan). Southern Arizona is such a glamorous place to me.

Well, farmers own their own business, too-their co-operatives. Farmers who patronize co-operatives are stockholders and as stockholders have a voice in the management of their business. That's why they attend and pay attention at their meetings. Most farmers realize that it is to their economic benefit to patronize their co-operatives. Furthermore, the entire community benefits because the cooperative is a locally owned, controlled and operated business.
