Evelyn HHWIHHIffl After weeks and weeks of being shut in except for a trip to Mason City and one to Fort Dodge, thanks to Velma Hagg, I got out in the sun for several hours Oct. 5. Dinner at the Johnson House and then a lot of roaming down town. It seemed so good to see "Main stree' and 1 mentioned "Wiltgens have gone underground" so to speak, while they are remodeling their jewelry store. I was told it is to be extended 100 feet toward the alley, the work shop will be at the rear and they will have the much-needed extra space to display their "pretties". * * * 1 had a special reason for seeing several persons, among them Marg Dahl and "Jen" Hartshorn. Marg looks fine on her 900 calorie diet and Jen could use 1900, but looks good nevertheless. She's so tiny a good wind would blow her away. There was plenty of wind yesterday and I found a leaf tucked between the lower part of a crutch this morning, flipped there by the wind. * * * The first person I saw at the Johnson House was Rev. Coughenour and we had a good laugh and those around us didn't know what the joke was. Then a man came to my table and said "You don't know me." I assured him I did, but he insisted I didn't. Finally I said, "Are you still living at Burt ?" He knew then 1 was "hep." It was Dr. Guy Clapsaddle, whom I have known the past hundred years. I believe he has practically retired from doctoring and a few years ago he and his wife called on me and were either just back or just going to Florida for a vacation. * * * Mary Jean Hood, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gene Hood,.is teaching at a school near Minneapolis and likes it just fine, except for "pet days" when the youngsters have them as visitors. She was about sunk when one youngster brought several hundred salamanders and another child let them out. I wish she could see the "whosis" Web Orton has. A green lizard-like monstrocity I'd give chloroform or some gas if I had to have it around. I recall a teacher who lived here some time ago - I've forgotten his name - but it was not uncommon for guests to find snakes crawling over the davenport or where ever they chose. I'm not much of a pal of reptiles, harmless as these were. * * * Dora Mitchell is back here with us at Good Samaritan after a week or so at St. Ann. * * * Fern Foster and Helen Hutchison were hosts Tuesday for the birthday observance of Frank Johnson. Bingo was played. * * * The Walter Klamps had as guests at dinner one day recently Mr. and Mrs. Max Wallukait of Dakota City. He is a brother of Chris and for 40 years has been county clerk. He didn't run in the last election, but undoubtedly would have won. Quite a record, but it looks as though some of our officials will equal or surpass his record. * * * wear the short, tight skirts could hear what a young and personable young clerk has to say about them. A pat on the back for this 30-year old bachelor. * * * Not long ago there was a mention of the "pig woman" on TV and the Question was "Who was she ?" It went unanswered probably because the person was too young to remember the part she played in the court room of a murder trial of some years ago. The minister and his paramour, a woman in the choir, who were found murdered in a secluded wooded area in the east. The mystery was never solved nor was the ax murder at Villi sea which happened so many years ago. Ugh - what a pleasant subject I Mark Seeley and Jim Geelan have been at Ontario, Canada on a hunting trip and each got a deer. The question Mrs. Seeley pondered was "What to do with it." I told her Mrs. Clint McClellan told me to have the steaks spread with salad dressing when frying - it took away the wild taste. Then when we had others given us by Clint, Esther Benson who was then my housekeeper, cooked them with onions just like beef steaks. I liked the onion way much better. I suggested that the meat be ground like hamburger, mixed with seasoning when cooked, just like beef- burgers, and she thought that was a good suggestion. As for the head - she vows it will not go in the living room. It will be banished to the recreation room and I agree with her. I know one loving wife who has for years endured a huge head of the beast her husband killed in Idaho hanging on the living room wall, much to her dislike, and now it has been passed on to an equally loving wife who is learning to endure it for her husband's sake. Well, I'm not a loving wife but I am sure I might have found it grounds for divorce. For years I saw another head but in this case the wife liked it and hung festoons of ribbons and what-not on it - and I finally was told it was a purchased head. Her husband wasn't a hunter. * * * As we passed the Glenn Shore residence yesterday,'Velma and I noticed a ramp there. I asked Mrs. Shore the next day who used it and she said her sister Dora Curmier had been an invalid for some time and uses a wheel chair. * * * Mrs. Marie Murtagh shared such a good letter she had received from Dicie Bean (Mrs. Howard Quinn - 16 Glorietta Court - Orinda, Calif.) Like my late cousin, Melvin Henderson, she yearns for good old Iowa and if s pretty little Algona, our beautiful fall colors, and regrets, just as he did, the changes that have taken place in California the past years making it much less pleasant to live in, the crowding out of people and their property to make "clover leaves", the many "senior citizen" areas and the monotony of architecture. She is an lowan at heart and always will be, just as Melvin was. Hooray for them 11 * * * I wish the girls and women who I have frequently called Mrs, Eugene Schattschneider and Mrs. Leo Waldschmidt for news and they have been wanting to meet me. Today they came to my room and I was happy to meet them, too. * * * And now we have medicare to accept or reject. Then we worried for fear something might happen to the Pope on his visit here. Thank goodness he is safely back home. And Dicie said in her letter the Negro problem was really a problem in California. Then there are the Cubans who want to come here - and I don't blame them, but with the employment problem, oh me, oh my. And now how about President Johnson's gall bladder? Of course I am a staunch Republican but I don't want a Democratic gall bladder to add more problems. At least the newspapers have plenty of things to write about and repeat over and over from every angle. No, I didn't watch TV. I was kept informed by broadcasts from radios across the hall, the progress from the Pope's arrival till his departure. And I admire him. Likewise, I used to listen with interest to Bishop Sheen. Most everyone around here was World Series conscious. The men watch TV and radios blare, and even the nurses have pools, Upl Notice IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF IOWA, IN AND FOR KOSSUTH COUNTY In Probate No. 8778 NOTICE OF HEARING ON REPORT OF SALE OF REAL ESTATE IN THE MATTER OF THE ESTATE OF Ruth E.

Upper DCS Moines Tuesday, October 19, 1965 but I am left unmoved and not at all interested except 1 want the Twins to win, of course. I just don't understand the game and haven't the desire to become informed. Yes, maybe I am a poor citizen, but I never was interested in sports of any kind. Oh, time was when maybe I would rouse a little interest in a two- legged "sport" if he were of the mild variety. * * * Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Halm have returned from a six-week vacation to Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, Switzerland and other surrounding points, going to Mason City, thence via plane to Chicago, and from there via plane to New York City where they boarded a jet.
