B. Huff of Lu- Verne, Bill Huff and Grover Gnibb of Wesley and spending the weekend were Ray Huff and his granddaughter, Beverly Sanders of Cedar Rapids. While here they also called at the Leslie Huff and Stanley Gardner homes at Algona. Visiting here Mr. Huff and his granddaughter were also able to take in the greatest fireworks display In northern Iowa and they agreed the fellow In the white hat directing traffic also put on the best performance in northern Iowa In the little town of Wesley. Just the mention of the bruised kids out of school seems to have jinxed everyone the past week. Not even in school yet, Craig Klrschbaum, youngest son of the Leo Kirschbaums, fell in the back yard at his home and cut his wrist in three places on a small piece of glass resulting In a visit to the doctor and seven stitches in the wound. The Perry Lowmans are getting ready for company. Arriving this weekend are Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Hale of Stanton, Virginia. The Lowman's are also looking forward to seeing their daughter next week, Mrs. Bill Oliver and family arriving from Portland, Oregon. Mr. and Mrs. Lowman, David and Dean plan to return to Oregon with Mrs. Oliver for a visit in August. Not everyone is entertaining guests as Mr. and Mrs. Archie Elbert and family decided to be the visitors. They are on their long planned trip to California to visit sisters of Mrs. Elbert at Vista and Long Beach. Keeping Eileen and Mike Elbert company at home is a cousin, Mary Lou Tallman, of Cherokee, Iowa. This would be a good time to go calling on Mrs. Nell Ophelm, as it must be mighty lonesome around her place this week. Her family, the Junior Ray Hoopers, returned to Mountain Home, Arkansas, after a few weeks visit here and then her neighbors, Mr. and Mrs. Clair Hovey, Carol and Jimmy also took off for the same general area. They will visit at the children's paternal grandparents in Arkansas and might even drop in at the Hoopers to continue their visit from here. A familiar visitor of the past years is among the missing this summer and for good reason. Gerri Hennigan of Dallas, Texas, is attending beauty school instead of visiting at the McMahons for the summer. It wasn't the pleasant trip to the Iowa City area that the Charles Schaeffers were planning last week. The Sunday before leaving they arrived home from church to find a fire had burned a hole through their kitchen floor. They were able to get it under control before it broke through the outside wall where contact with a high wind could have destroyed the house. Any housewife will agree It was not all good news as Mrs. Schaeffer had spent the previous week painting and cleaning the downstairs so they could return from their trip to a nice clean house. They took their trip on schedule, but no doubt spent most of the time thinking of all that work to be done over again when they got home. The Company the Roy Hansens have been hoping would come for the past couple of years have arrived at last. Former residents, Mr. and Mrs. Dick Hansen and family arrived on Monday from their home in Maine, ( for their first visit since leaving here. It was also the first (imp Mrs. Hanson has soon the nick Hanson's yunncrpRt chiM. Thp Art Mix's niado tlio must of the two day holiday for the fovirth. They attended a Hix family picnic at UIP DH'if.lit Huseliomo on Sunday. On Monda\ tlioy attended a Smith family picnic at the Pilot Knoli State Park. Th>'v were able to visit with Mrs. Mix's brother, Frank Smith and family here from CnhunUis, Ohio. During the busy \veok a new family has l-pen added to the town at the residence vacated by the Clarence Golwitzers. Newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Kenny Prtils- man will be making their home here. For the first timeftie general comment has all been one of approval for a new product. Ttie reasons ranged from it's easier to find what I'm looking for to it's easier to pick up and read on the bus, but It's all lx>en about HIP iU'-v of the I'H'pr Do-'- M"inps paper on M n 'i- .i.u .
