his father was born in Ontario then he was a cousin of the letters author it concluded The arrange ments were made and Mrs Just man renewed an acquaintance she had made slightly out in Granville Iowa

as much infor mation on woodworking as on cro cheting noting that the Mason Cityans shop in his garage almost dwarfed his home Back in 1917 Lou wrote a rec ommendation for one of his fire men to get a job in Alaska That was the last he ever heard of the man or the job A clipping came the other day taken from an An chorage paper sent by an Alaskan rail engineer With it was a belated thank you note

a onetime fireman with Lou who is now a Chicago machinist dropped a line to renew acquaintances after a 30 year lapse Wants Out of Dog House Walter says he was misquoted in a statement credited to him concerning the greater ability of men to crochet than women A lady in church the next day turned n her pew and offered to chal lenge him but his blank stare l f irom matrimony to a retired min he had
