They'd been to Miami on a corn'iined business and pleasure trip and had revisited Tampa where MOP was stationed during World War II. Thp\'d planned to stop here only briefly before flying to Mexico City, but arrangements were so tight time-wise that they postponed the trip until the next day and spent the afternoon and evening with us. We enjoyed the visit very much. But I did learn one thing: it often takes more tim.? making reservations and getting to the airport than the whole flying time takes. 3 Algona Women At Washington Conclave DURING TUP: WEHK OF APRIL 4 through 10, people having birthdays include Kevin Nelson, Bruce McCullough, Fran Parrott, Robert Wegener, Tammy Parrish, Carson Taylor, Greg Anderson, Jeanne Rich, Sadie Hopkins, Devin Ruhnke, Bob Woods, Mirk Klbert, Don Sjogren, H.
