Mr. and Mrs. Logan Reif and family spent Christmas day with Mrs. Mas Osburn at CoralviUe. O There were forty-one present at the Dewey Weeks home last Mon- day night when the H. J. Club members and their families held their annual Christmas party. Mr. and Mrs. Roy Krotz and Norms Jean and Louise Waterhouse were guests. A ~gt luck ,~pper was served which consisted of favorite dishes of several notions besides the n~any delicious American dishes the club members ~rought. There was real English Christmas pud- ding made by Mrs. Tom Stirling, a native of Ireland; Bohemian kolaches such as only Mrs. Joe TeBoekhorst can bake and Swed- ish meat balls. While the club members were holding a short business meeting the young folks with Mrs. Mer- tit Reiner at the piano sang the many ~utiful Christmas songs and then there was a program by the younger children. Children taking part in the interesting pro- gram ~ere Billy and Geraldine Reiner, Wayne Shalla, Lovilla and Rosamond Sojka, Norms Jean Krotz, Carol, Katherine, Anna Marie and Frances Weeks. Christmas greetings were read from Mrs. Ves Reiner, a club member, who is spending the win- ter with her daughter in Daven- port. As each one drew her or his gift in the Ghristmas exchange, the gift was opened, so that all might see it and there was a club treat of candy, n~ts and oranges for the kiddies. Mrs. Joe TeBockhorst and Mrs. Joe Knotek ~ook part in a very amusing contest. Toy ballons were inflated and t~ed with strings about 18 inches long and there strings were tied to to cen- ~estants ankles---on balloon on each ankle. The winner of the contest was to be the one who could first tep on and burst the balloons tied to her opponents ankles. It looked at first as though Mrs. Knotek would be the winner for she managed to keep the balloons behind her feet. However, Mrs. TeBockhorst, after a while made her change position and then the contest really got lively--such stomping and jumping you never did see! Finally Mrs. TeBbck- horst succeeded in breaking both of her opponents balloons and was declared the winner. Tom Stifling was the winner of the contest in which he and Roy Krotz participated. Two soda crackers were tied on top of each one of their heads ~and after the two men were blindfolded they were given a swatter made efa rolled-up magazines.They were told to see who could first break ~p the crackers on the others head by using the swatter. For the first few seconds the swatting was wild, neither swat- ter finding his mark. Then the men went into a clinch and when their referee failed to break the clinch the sv]ats flew fast and furiously. After Mr. Stirling had swatted about in mid air for a while he located the general dir- ection of Mr. Krotz's head and soon nearly every swat found its mark and he succeded in breaking t~e craeker~ on his opponeent's head while those on his own head were intact: You see Mr. S~tirling had thought to bend his head down far enough so t~nat no mat- Guinn William~ William Demarest (Too late for last week) The next meeting of the Ladle Beneficial society will he held at SUN--MON the~ Jo~n Robertson home on dinner at t~e noon hour. he see- Wednesday afternoon of the 31. ond lesson on nutrition will be NEW Mr. and Mrs. Tom ~,yers, Tom- given at this meeting and there my and Nancy of Duluth, Min- will be election ~f oiYieers and YORK TOWN n.o wi,, visi at th. lory Taylor home and with rela- payment of dues. ~rrin~._ tiv~ in Iowa City) until after e Mr. Taylor met them East Lincoln Rapids Saturday night.
