Algono (la.) Upper DM Main** Tufttday, Octobor 26, 1965 IUIHIIHW^ A letter yesterday from Maggie Pannkuk of Fairmont said she and Clarence are back home and happy the Intensive examinations he had showed no hint of the ailment they feared. She failed to say what the doctors finally said was wrong, but I hope from now on it is "fair weather" for both of them. They have been in an out of hospitals the past few years, and Maggie's latest trouble was a broken ankle from which she is now fully recovered. Some days are jinxed and this is one of them. Amy Johnson came to work but had to go home and has signs of flu stomach variety. Annabelle Elbert couldn't come from Whittemore because her husband was sick - one of the nurses has some knee ailment and she's walking around peg-legged. The Nasbys aren't back yet from Chicago but will be by evening maybe earlier. The steaks got here a little late so we may not eat dinner as promptly as usual- and so it goes. * * * Christine Groen, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Groen, had a supper, show and slumber party recently. The supper and show were probably normal, but slumber I'd not bet on, having gone to some in my youth. One in particular I remember Edna Norton (Mrs. Arthur Ferguson) had. What we lacked in sleep we made up in fun and Kodak pictures the next morning. While Hazel Lusby, Lizzie Post and I were seeing Evalyn McDougall at Park hospital last week, in walked Mr. and Mrs. Perry Collins and Floyd Hutzell. Floyd had, a short time before that, become a father of his third child, a son, and the Perry Collins made grandparents again. I think a little girl had been ordered but Doc Stork sometimes makes his own decisions and Floyd said, "Well, three of a kind is 0. K." These Hutzell boys are the best dressed as to knitted garments of any youngsters I know, for the grandmothers are ardent and adept knitters and the supply of sweaters, scarves, mittens and what-not will never run low. I knit a little and like it but after doing scarves for everyone I could think of, I quit. I have no one to make things for, and half the incentive is making things for loved ones. * * * The trees are beautiful .at; Mason City and we rode around to find the extra beautiful one we saw a few years ago when we went to Jean Cady Lawson's wedding. It was just as lovely as it was when we first saw it. It is so lovely I can't even describe it. * * * Julia, who works for the doctor who bought my late cousin Gerald's animal hospital and house on North Federal, was kept busy entering and releasing "patients".. The doctor was out so she was kept extra busy. * * * I had a nice chat with Minnie Matern who was bouse guest of Veronica Roethler. She lives at Stewartvttle, Mian, and was here a few days seeing old friends. At one time, she owned the little store across the street from here, which later was taken over by the Jim Aliens. I saw lights there last night in the apartment portion and wonder if the living quarters have been rented. It has always looked so lonely since the Aliens gave it up. * * * There must be plenty of ducks to be had this year when the season opens. I've heard three flocks quacking their way south in the past week or so. * * * It is unusual to say the least to have a Sunday morning sermon delivered by a young high school lad of 15, but it did happen at Ankeny in August when Rev. Weston of the Methodist church was on vacation and asked Sterling Lundell to take over for him one morning. All who heard him said he did a fine job and has all the makings of a minister, which he hopes to become. He is a grandson of Mr. and Mrs. Adrian Sterling. * * * The birthday of Mrs. Nannie Lindhorst was observed Tuesday. * * * Mary Bartlett had an unusual experience on her trip home from Atlantic City where she attended the P. E. 0. convention. She got into conversation with a woman on the plane and discovered a Mrs. Remley who lives in California but was a native lowan. It narrowed down to Webster City where Fosters lived and Mrs. Remley asked, "Do you know an Arch Foster there ?" "Yes, indeed," Mary replied, "he's my uncle." "Well of all things," Mrs. Remley replied, "he's MY uncle too." So there, several thousands of feet In the air, this connection was discovered. He is a relative on Mrs. Remley's mother's side, and a relative of Mary on her father's side. Mrs. Remley does a column Mary compared with mine. Her's is called "Potato Peelings." * * * Delia Moe and her husband Ted Koscher, Miami, Fla., were here yesterday calling on friends. They stopped for a chat with me. It has been many years since I had seen Delia and never met her husband. Both are employed at very interesting work, Mr. Koscher having taught for a number of years but now having something to do with computers. I don't know the details and Delia heads a group of 25 women in some sales project. Freda Moe came to see Abe Carter who lived with her a number of years when he needed care but came to Good Samaritan when she was no longer able to look after him. Delia also went to second floor to see Adele White. * * * Well, it's OVER, and I'd have preferred having the Twins win. But it proves computers can't compute I So there I And believe me, I'll not let a machine pick out my future husband I At least I'll have a little peace now until the Iowa-Purdue football game, I'll listen to that as I do understand that a little better than baseball. Our Methodist Vim contained an interesting bulletin announcing that Rev. Newton Coughenour and Mrs. Louis Kelley have been nominated as delegates to the eleventh World Methodist Conference- to' be held in London, England in August, 1966. Quite a long time to look ahead, but something to think about. There are more details ion it but the main feature Is contained in the announcement of their appointment. In 1952, Rev. and Mrs. Coughenour served in Epsom, England as an exchange minister for the World Council. * * * From the length of time many tourists spend on hasty trips abroad, this must describe it. well. "Tourists taking countries like vitamin pills - one a day". * * * I had such a nice visit with Frances Pruisman the other evening. She was a nurses aide here some time ago and we had a lot of things to talk about. Well, there will be lights in the little store the Jim Aliens had and it won't look so forlorn. The apartment has been rented and it's good to see it occupied, though I don't know who the "neighbors" are. * * * Guess I forgot to mention we are having some TV work done here that will give us better reception and do away with antennas. Sort of a booster arrangement and what-not. I don't understand much about it, but it will improve the reception and the same will be made at the new home. * * * In spite of the fact it has been i revealed Cary Grant is to become a father next May, I wasn't Interested sufficiently to watch to the finish the play Thursday night with Sophia Loren. Nor was I impressed with Sophia. It was a dull play and I left it midway to do better things have my sleep. William Wyatt is another rock hound, added to Henry Guderian, Adrian and Vernon easier and I believe Lloyd Wellendorf is also one. I don't know who else in this vicinity is interested. There may be several. Mrs. Wyatt told of friends they have at Mount Pleasant, one of whom has built a fire place of various rocks, polished and cut to matching size. The other friend has also done some work but not on as large a scale. The men have made other uses of the rocks and built such interesting and beautiful things, I told her it reminded me of a ranch north of Pomona, Calif. I saw which had the house and out buildings as well as fences made of rocks picked up from the unending supply on the area and from what was a dry river bed when we saw it. I referred her to the house on South Wooster street built by the Bartholomew brothers some time ago and was quite a show place at the time because of the stones used on the porch. * * * LONG SERVICE Six Sunday School teachers in the First Christian church, Albia, have been teaching there for a total of 149 years of service, Mrs. Chester Woodcock, 21 yrs., Mrs. J.
