2-Af0ena (lo.) Upper DPI Mofnet Tutsdoy, March 9, 1965 Valentines which came too late for me to include recently \vere a box of candy from Rusks, a huge heart shaped affair with delicious chocolates andThuen- tes sent some nice crnter pieces. Just leave it to the Nasbys to bring on bad weather! They HAD to attend an Iowa Nursing Home Assn. meeting at Fort Dodge and along came more snow and a day not conducive to relaxed driving. The next day was bright and sunny. The meeting was held at Holiday Inn and main speaker was Ralph Quackenbush. I went in to kid Chris Jensen this morning. When getting out of bed, he slipped and fell against the bed side. He will have to be taped for several days, but thank goodness it was not a broken arm or leg. I told him next time to go easy on his liquor - and of course everyone knows Chris is a non-drinker. Then I had a chat with Casper Thilges who said, "I haven't seen you for a long time." I'm glad he has missed me. It seems as though I have so much to take up my time, but it is pleasant visiting my neighbors. He will have a good view of the activities when the new home just west of Gary McDonald's gets under way. Think I'll park in his room and watch, too. * * * I am glad my column is of some use. A woman at Cylinder wrote to Velma Hagg for the Rev. Burgess address when she read I had seen pictures of their house trailer and Velma had visited them. The Cylinder women knew them some time ago. My dear Mrs. Tracy Ward, of Titonka - The book you sent me was most helpful and and I want to say "Thanks" again. * * * Olive Reid (Mrs. Harvey) makes H. Miller's "Over the Coffee" every now and then. Her latest appeared a week or .so ago. r-.-'r •flere's a macabre story that out-Hitchcock - TRUE, according to one whose work is impeccable and told by one of equal veracity. A family went vacationing to a part of the country very sparsely settled and the towns so small they could scarcely be called even a village. Eighty-three year old grandma wanted to go with them and they finally took her, much against their better judgment. Grandma was, taken sick, there was no doctor within a radius of many, many miles. Grandma died, and then there arose the problem of what to do with her - how to get her to some place where there was a mortuary. I didn't inquire into the details, but somehow they managed to get a box for the body and tied it to the top of the car. They had to stay over night in some out of the way place, and lo and behold, when they went to get the car it was gone, grandma along. To this day they have never been able to get a trace of the car or grandma. I would like to have seen the reactions of the persons who took the car when they investigated the box. Wouldn't you? Fairy and Gordon Kuhn celebrated their forty-ninth wedding anniversary far from home and l I I their two children, Helen Klein and Pob Kuhn of Ankeny. Oh, there are several Algonans in their vicinity at Brownsville, etc. The Kuhns are at Port Isabel, Tex. Helen says she hopes they will stay home next year and have a proper golden anniversary. Mrs. Gertrude Faulstick had a nice valentine given her by her son Wilfred of Castro Valley, Calif. A plane ticket which she used Feb. 15 and will stay with the family about three weeks. She was there earlier in the fall, then went to Lincoln, Neb., to be there to welcome a newcomer in her son Charles' family. She was home but a short time when Wilfred's gift came. He thought her visit had been too short. Mr. and Mrs. Leroy Lau welcomed a little Valentines day granddaughter Rhonda Lee, born to their son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. John Ranius at Garner. + * * Mr. and Mrs. Cryder Wicks, Kanawha, parents of Orville Wicks, don't let the years interfere with their fun. He is 83 she 81 and they have visited their grandson Larry and wife at Lawnsdale, Calif., and sisters at Ingle wood. I had interesting callers Feb. 24, Hugh and Lenore Black and their adorable nearly three month old Carolyn. She is a little charmer and such a sturdy little tot - sits up and looks at the world with deep interest. Jimmy is bashful and couldn't be persuaded to come in. Louise is school age. How fast youngsters grow up. * * * Another letter from Glenn Naudain said in part, "My wife has adopted southern ways and talk. She can "Honey" as well as they. I have remained a d— Yankee." His wife is a former lowan. Glenn has lived in Rock Hills, S.C. 40 yearsj- Amy Geering brought apicture of Mayme Belts Fries for me to see. She was chief operator at the telephone office here many years ago. She has aged of course, but was easily recognizable. She retired from telephone work some time ago, but was librarian for awhile. She'lives at Scotia, Calif, and has been widowed about 20 years. * * * Algona has a fine collection of outstanding girls and since Joanne Hutchison is the eldest of the three I have in mind, I'll mention he* ffVst. 'St\e Is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Don Hutchison and for reasons of health has lived in Tucson many years and attended college there. She recently won her masters degree in English and Spanish and at present is teaching at two schools for retarded and slow learning children. She is finding the work well worth while and the young folk respond wonderfully. Recently, Tucson had four inches of snow which delighted her. She sent her diploma to her parents and right now it has a prominent place on the mantel. Congratulations, Joanne?

She Is on the Dean's list and attends St. Catherine College at St. Paul, Minn. And now we come to Mary, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Bradley. She attends Duchesne College at Omaha and has been chosen one of the nine princesses at the 32nd annual Mardi Gras ball. One of the nine will be chosen Queen as result of the voting of the student body and faculty. I hope Mary Is chosen. * * * Eva Smith dropped In to show me a dress hanger Llla Adams of Des Molnes had made for Mabel Paxson. It Is novel and very pretty, covered with foam rubber or whatever you call the material. It keeps the garment from leaving shoulder marks. A wonderful idea for Christmas gifts, but I'm too lazy. I've done so much fancy work In my day I've gone Into "retirement." It is distressing when names are omitted from parties, but such a large one was given by the Bonnette family for their parents recently, It Is not to be wondered that a few named were omitted unintentionally. They were Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Peterson, Clear Lake, Robert Peterson and Joyce Ludwig. Going through the new phone directory I saw the name James Logan. I called and asked if she was an Ostwinkle girl. She replied, "No, but I have had many persons ask me the same thing. I am from Owatonna". It is she and her husband who now have the Johnson House.

"YES" - SAID NEARLY 70% OF THOSE WHO PARTICIPATED IN A RECENT SURVEY TAKEN BY THE IOWA POLL. if ELDERCARE is designed to offer a wide range of hospital and medical services for persons over 65 who need help — much more than MEDICARE. if ELDERCARE covers physicians' care, surgical costs, drugs in and out of hospital — plus hospital and nursing home care. MEDICARE covers only part of the latter. if ELDERCARE would NOT require a new payroll tax. It would be financed by federal-state funds through the KERR-MILLS MAA program which already exists in Iowa. It would not use your tax dollars to provide benefits for the wealthy. if ELDERCARE lets people qualify for benefits before illness strikes. Elderly lowans would obtain insurance policies for medical and hospital care. Some wolud pay nothing. Others would contribute a part of the cost of their policies, depending on their income. To apply, a person 65 or more would merely submit a simple statement of income. WHAT CAN YOU DO? Time Is Short! Since This Legislation Originated In The U.S. House of Representatives, Write Your Representative Now; Urge His Support of ELDERCARE. Possibly You May Want To Sign And Send The Accompanying Prepared Note. The Information Here Is To Help You In Addressing And Mailing Your Letter. DEAR CONGRESSMAN : As a concerned lowan, I feel the proper role of our federal government in the area of health care for the aged should be that of aiding those in need. I do not favor adding a new payroll tax to pay even limited benefits to those persons over 55 who are wealthy and who prefer to care for themselves. I should like to urge you to support and vote for the Herlong-Curtis Voluntary ELDERCARE Bill (H.R.3727) and to reject the Compulsory King-Anderson MEDICARE Tax Plan.
