J-Alfeno (la.) Upper Dei Moine* Thundoy, Morch 25, 1965 The Sarah proup of the Firrf Lutheran church had planned to call on residents at Good Samaritan aiter their last meeting, but tiN> weather was so bad they postponed it. However, they did send cookies which we enjoyed. Thank you. Mr. Nasby suggests I write an "Ode to Snow". Well, I might write a jingle, but it's title would be "Owed to Snow." Mildred Bailey Graham, Clayton, New Mex., and her sister, Merle Aalfs of Sioux City, have been here visiting their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Chester Bailey, the former being a resident here. Mrs. Graham came a few weeks before her husband joined her. They left for their homes March 11 and Mildred said she had seen enough snow to last her for awhile. However, there was snow within 70 miles of Clayton, something unusual. Harold Hutchlns was taken to St. Ann awhile ago, and while there had a phone call from his son Paul in New York City. Paul was being visited by DorrisLong and husband Glee Pitcher and son Bill, Wellsville, Pa. Bill has given up the ministry and is now associated with his father in business. Someone suggests bait for mice. Peanut butter is the best thing 1 ever used. They love it and it sticks to the trap. Mr. and Mrs. Ed Crawford were stranded in St. Cloud, Minn. a few weeks ago, but fortunately a son 16 and a daughter 15 were able to "keep the home fires burning." The Crawfords had gone to Minneapolis to attend funeral services for his uncle, Thomas Gavigan. They went to St. Cloud and could get no further. They were very thankful when they could reach Algona. Ralph Elbert "was "here March 8 wjth some films 'showing ,how to avoid fires and how to evacuate patients from hospitals and rest homes. They say it was most informative and helpful. He also explained the workings of our sprinkling system here and our protection sounds very good. I had a nice letter from Fairie Kuhn, who with her husband, Gordon, is vacationing at Port Isabel, Tex. I will quote parts of it. ''1 love gpttinp letters from home. However, so many have been sick, even in the family. My sister (Mrs. H.Utie Cltim) of EmmetslHirfc was in the hospital there, Chi istmas and three weeks in January, Dad (Gordon) has t>een in with the flu for nearly a week. We will !w leaving here around the 20 to 23, but will stay a few days at a good camping place on a trout lake in Arkansas. I caji see now we won't lie home till after April Fools Day, but I can almost see around the corner now. We spent most of yesterday at Brownsville and Mexico. Bought a bit of trash and listened to their chatter till 1 couldn't take it anv longer. \V«> don't fish here, we just go, go, go. There is no fishing from the shore here and Gordon isn't tempted with deep sea fishing. We haven't been over to see Howard and Hazel Platt yet. Want to go a day next week and look around and visit with the Ellsworths (Verda Stell) at McAllen, and some friends at Weslaco we had as neighlwrs at the Okobojis. This is a small world. Yesterday at Mexico I heard some folks say they were from Iowa. I said, "I am from Algona." She said, "Oh, do you know Mrs. Les Riter and Mrs. Scherer?" "How well I do they are neighbors." The Kuhns celebrated their forty-ninth wedding anniversary Feb. 28 at Brownsville and joined Clede and Ruth Taylor at the Joe Buschers, and also met Lucille and Al Amunsen, Ralph and Sadie Morgan, and a picnic was enjoyed. There was'a delicious anniversary cake and the afternoon was spent with Iowa the main topic of conversation. A nice letter, Fairie, and I'll be glad to see you soon in April. And congratulations on your anniversary. Hope you have many more. * * * I suppose you wonder what has happened to me and*my complaints about the squirrels getting the food in the bird feeder. Well, he hasn't been near all winter, thank goodness. Maybe he has gone to squirrel heaven. But had he continued .to make himself a nuisance* I'd have felt like Jodie of Paullina who sent this little gem to Harlan Miller. "Intruder Amid the Birds - I'm gonna load my 16 gauge with salt and blaze away to sober that cocky squirrel who raids my window tray." * * * Being a lover of diamonds, I was interested in the list who won them at Montgomery Ward last week. Mrs. Leo McEnroe was one and since she was not Do your dishes, glassware, and Hat ware dry off and leave ugly streaks and spots that have to be polished away? If they do, fhances are you have an annoying and expensive hard water problem. What to do about it'.' First find out how serious your hard water problem is by calling your Lindsay Water Conditioning representative.

"Where is the man, when he looks into the mirror who doesn't admire his wife's tn.-<te?" at home, I talked with Leo. She hasn't chosen a mounting for it yet. Leo and I have known each other for many years and he reminded me he has a wagon on the farm bought from my father years ago. My father died in 1922 so this wagon is really an antique. Friends of Evelyn McDougall will lie glad to know she has recovered sufficiently from her gall bladder surgery to tie back at work for half days at Park hospital. She had written a letter to Mrs. L. W. Keith who has t)oen hospitalized at Park hospital at various times and in it sent a "Hello" to me. Mrs. Keith is a resident here now and is a busy woman according to her son - crocheting, reading a lot, too. Speaking of crocheting, Leora St. John has made so many Afghans. I wonder how many she has made since she became a resident here. I must ask her. I have seen a few of them and they are beautiful. One she made for Mrs. 0. B. Laing was in shades of purple and lavendar, the color scheme of the Laing's living room. * * * I hope by the time this reaches print the snow and ice will be .gone. The Ollie Nasbys returned today, March 11, from a day spent at Mason City and the previous day at Des Moines, both times on business. He said the roads from Mason City were very icy until they got within ten miles of here. * * * Nancy MorraJl and Sigrid Kohlhaas were here today, Sigrid said her sister Yarda and husband, Dr. Lyle Ellis of Hartford, Conn., are en route home from Jekyll Island, Ga. where they spent the winter. She was wondering what kind of roads they would encounter. The Fred Pannkuks are home by this time, too. They spent several weeks with relatives In the Los Angeies ruoa. * * * One of our nurses aides here, Vera Clark, has a 15-year old son Roger who has two ewes. He has never named them so since both have become mamas, I'll not call them X and Y. I'll call one Lily and one Lily Ann. Lily recently gave birth to twins, one died, but the survivor has been named Stormy because of the nature of the night he arrived. Lily Ann gave birth to triplets a few days ago, two sons and a daughter. Let's call them Winkin, Blinkin and Nod. with-Wesley schools. It is a three-act comedy with a cast of 15 persons.

People THE LIKE UPPER DES MOINES STRONG CHURCHES... Make Strong Communities "But the Lord is faithful; he will strengthen you and guard you from evil." ( . —41 Thessalonians 3:3 Most of us like to feel that we are somewhat independent and self-sufficient. If we achieve some station or mark in life we are particularly proud if we can boast to the world that we "made it on our own." It is most generally true, however, that those who claim to have made it all alone are simply refusing to give credit to those who helped them along the way. No matter how important an individual may become, in business, in politics, in the field of life, he can accomplish little without help from others. The king of a powerful nation is a man with power; yet if he has no nation to follow his wishes and commands, he is not so powerful. Let us not become so intent on going it alone that we forget about God. We shall never become so independent that we shall not have need of God. •tad your BIBLE dally and 00 TO CHURCH SUNDAY These Special Weekly Church Messages brought to you by the following PUBLIC-SPIRITED BUSINESSES; HUTZELL CITIES SERVICE Floyd Hutzell, Service Station Roy R.
