Iowa Flag Over Minnesota Fair THE IOWA FLAG flew over the Minnesota State Fairgrounds Wednesday, Sept. 1. Members of the Fort Dodge Landers Drum and Bugle Corps took part In flag- raising ceremonies near the new Space Tower and the Air Force Titan Missile on display at the Minn, exposition. The Landers paraded through the center of the 300-acre Fairgrounds before and after the auto race program as a highlight of Iowa Day. Crowds totaled 109,439, just 250 below the all-time record attendance for a Wednesday at the Minnesota State Fair. •. • by Evelyn were there. The road to Festina was under repair so we didn't venture going there. * * + Well, everybody to their taste, but excuse me from having a bear for a pet even though the teeth and toe nails have been removed. This bear, a black one, belongs to the Don Hieters of Spencer. The children love him very much and have a pony on which the bear rides. I told Hattie they should contact, "I've Got A Secret", "Hollywood Palace" or Ed Sullivan. * * * Mr. and Mrs. Jim Kolp were recently at Clear Lake attending an open house given at the Mr. and Mrs. John Vance cottage. There they met my cousin, Jean Cady, and her husband Murray Lawson, and Jean told Mrs. Kolp she had a cousin In Algona. Jim and Murray knew each other in college - Ames, I believe it was. The Vance music store did a flourishing business years ago and I remember where It was located. Mr. and Mrs. Vance now live at Wilmington, Del, * * * • A recent letter from my cousin Gayle Henderson Kierulff, now of Pomona, Calif., writes about her husband Herb who recently made a flying trip to Washington, C. D. to collect data for his dissertation. Then he left last week for two weeks with the Army Reserve summer camp in Hawaii. He has passed his oral and written doctoral exams so has just the dissertation to go, What fun It would be to flit to Washington, D, C. and Hawaii, but I'll bet he'd rather be at home with Gayle. And just to add to his stature, he's an lowan really - born in Osceola where his parents lived for years before retiring and going to San Piego. We've had a few days of It "The whewmldity of August." August 26 - Part of our devotions this evening was made varied and enjoyable by two songs, sung by Connie Darbyshire, Bea Kay Marshall and Lark Whittemore, accompanied on the piano^by^their-teacher,^i Mrs. Vaughan Rising. I had a nice visit with them and hope they will come again soon. # # * Earlier in the afternoon I had as guests Connie Jergenson, Aurora, Colo., Velma Hagg and Mabel Hutzell. Yes, we covered a lot of territory conversationally and got caught up on family news. Connie had a picture of her granddaughter, Janet's little girl. A sweet child but not resembling Janet. She is dark like her father, but a little honey. * * * I had occasion to go through some stored things and found a "sunshade" which belonged to my grandmother Cady way back In the 1850's. It Is brown silk, not a dent in it, and In unusually good shape for something so old. Also a geography of my mother's with many pictures she had drawn for me on the front and back pages, Not works of art by any means, but done to amuse me, a little tot of four, for in the book was a cardboard hand she had drawn, cut out, and written, "Evelyn's hand. Four years old." I remember so well the woman and sled with a tot, which of course represented her and me, Bless her, and what sweet memories, * * * Birthday cards continue to arrive and one came from Marian Balluff, (Mrs. George) former Algonans now living at Mason City. Thank you, Marian, for telling me you miss my calls. Sometimes I wonder if people get tired of me, but it's the only way I can get news, so I hope they feel as kindly as you. A part of her letter says, "Yesterday I started back to work at Roosevelt elementary school after the summer vacation.^ I have 582 to keep records-f^'plus^SOS-teachers, a principal and three custodians. It's interesting work and I enjoy It very much. We had a most enjoyable vacation this summer - nine days spent in the Black Hills and three weeks in Canada and Wisconsin. We took our trailer and enjoyed camping very much - over 5500 miles." * * * Thank you for your card and letter, Mrs. Metta Wise, Sexton. Come over some time and call on me. Yes, Mrs. Nannie Lindhorst is here, too, and is fine. It is interesting to know your first husband and her's were cousins. She would be glad to see you, too. Thanks for your very nice comments about "Tidbits." * * * Yes, Lucille, it was Olin Kool. The Informer has not met his wife, but saw him working in his yard. * * * Marjorie Carlon Harriman, Sun City, Cal., has met my cousin Glen Henderson who lives there. I asked her to phone him, but she did better - went to his home just as he was leaving for the hospital to see his wife, Dean, who had recent surgery but was soon to be home. What fun mother and I had with them years ago when we visited his father and mother, Walt andStell Henderson, and they lived next door. * * * Mr, and Mrs. Arthur Mallory came from Hampton last Saturday and took the latter's sister, Dora Mitchell, a resident here, to dinner that noon, a pleasing diversion. * * * Amy Johnson, who lives next door to the Elbert house which burned, doesn't especially en- Joy such happenings - and after it was over, she thought how upset one can get - no clear thinking when one Is frightened for Amy has a phone that could have been used to call the fire department, and no one thought of it but went further down to the Roths. Well, fires ARE frightening. * * * A recent letter from Los Angeles bore two "anniversary memorial stamps of Dante. 700 years ago, Dante wrote "The Inferno", and if ever a stamp was appropriate, those are, for the inferno that has been happening there. A letter today from Edna Stebbins of Pomona said the new high school there had a bomb thrown in it, but fortunately the firemen got there In time so only one room was damaged. Some other areas were under attack by bottles and stones, but the ruckus was soon quelled. How terrible that these United States has become infested with such hoodlums. * * * i wonder if little 11-year old Becky Meyer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Don Meyer and granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs, Judd St. John, has her voice back. 1 assume she shrieked and screamed along with the other girls when she attended the Beatles program recently at Minneapolis. Well, her youth would excuse her from aping the mob, but for the life of me, I can't imagine older girls torturing their voice boxes and our ears with that silly show of idiocy. Frank Sinatra always left me cold and screechless, but he sure had a following in his day, I'll string along with Blng and Rudy. On the other hand, If it were Gene Barry, I'd probably SWOON and I know a gal who would join me, but I shall leave hertnamelesslv *• -. * It Randy Newlln, Cheryl Berggren and Scott Scheer of the Swea City Our Savior Lutheran church attended the L. S. V. Camp at Madrid. Mr. and Mrs. Merton Roal- thuridoy, Sept. 9, 1965 Alaona (la.1 Uoo«r D«* Moln«t-5 When I read of a man named Roger Tecumseh Sherman I was reminded of Earl T. Crane, who always maintained T was for Tecumseh, which I always doubted. Thomas would be my guess. * * * Twenty-one years ago August 14 Jo Ellen was born and on that day her father, who was in the service of Uncle Sam, landed in England. Even before learning of her birth, he must have been psychic for he sent a lovely little dress for her. Mrs. Milder was in a hospital with several other young "war mothers" at Cedar Rapids who enjoyed each other very much. I remember that John Donegan sent a little bonnet for his unborn child which turned out to be a boy. His wife was Welcome Johnston. All of which proves the thoughts of the husbands were back home with the "little woman." * * * Archeologlsts digging recently found a bronze razor believed to be 2,800 years old. I wonder if they hunted around for some Aqua Velva, the users of which make men so - oh, you know 1 * * * Mr, and Mrs. Howard Lowman have recently been atSpillvilleto see the Billy clocks and report a museum is now across the road from it which features china clocks, beautiful and unique, They were also at Festina to see the smallest church in the world, Hazel Lusby, Lizzie Post and I have seen the Billy clocks but the china ones moved in since we son and Terry Roalson are visiting from Ingelwood, Calif, for three weeks at the home of the Roalsons' daughter and family, the Wallace Dawsons.
