How could one be so fortunate - on my birth- day - as to find that the guar- antee period had not expired, so my Qualitone made a three weeks trip to the factory for repairs at no cost to me! I had been complaining a- bout the fit of a pair of shoes, fairly new, but a daily trial so we went to a shoe shop to be fitted.

Then as no statement was presented, so - on inquiry I was infat'med they were my new birthday shoes! My grand daughter, Virgin- ia, presented me with a beau- teous necklace, far too elegant. Then Bert says "Mother does not have a dressing gown," So that shortage was also re- medied. I wonder if I had" asked for that new Trailerhouse up on Cox Way - that is for sale at $2000 .... ?Oh well, my house is big enough for me - and with a sprinkling of cards from many states - from Cape Cod and Florida, to the Pacific Ocean, a Phone call from Marguerite and Dorothy White and a few of those cards had dollar bills in them with help- ful suggestions as to how to spend them - from a down pay- ment on a ear to a fur coat. Even was presented with a huge bouquet of pink chrysan- themums by the San Jose Councilwoman, Virginia Shat- ter. Then we went to Palo Alto for dinner. A very special place, where they serve the most tempting of Chinese foods of which I'm very fond. They seem to have mysterious sau- ces - the vegetables are never overdone, and I have scant knowlege of what I ate, and I could never pronounce the names of the food, but I was presented with a menu about 12 by 15 inches in size, and I'll let any of you read it. Alice's husband, Bert Raw- ak, has been working for Lock- heed Co. for many years - almost ever since they were married, and during all that time has been going to Night School to acquire more know- ledge along his line of work., Last week the Company sent a few of their good men to Lake Tahoe for a week of intensive training in "Prob- lems, their solution and Deci- sion Making." With all expens- es paid. This year he will get four weeks vacation. He has offered to take Mildred and me for a trip to "The old home town" for a week or ten days in May or June, while he and Alice go on to visit old friends at Wichita, and in Oklahoma. If I go - I will want a room in walking distance (short) of my home church, and to see what all has happened to My Town. Requires some medita- tion. Weather report, yesterday's temperature was from 37 de- grees low to 67 degrees 'nigh. A perfect day. Early Day Mankato (History) Chapter Four Not all was sweetness and light in those early days - while Counties and Towns were being established - for when the boundary of a County was determined, each town therein commenced a campaign to be selected as the County Seat. It's a sad fact that such bitterness could build up in a person as happened to a man in our neighborhood who told my husband that when he was a little boy, his teacher taught him to hate Mankato. Eventually the County Seat was selected as near the cen- ter of the County as was pos- sible, so that a man driving a team of horses hitched to a wagon, which was the usual method of transportation at that time, could make the trip and back home in a single day. Which was logical and fair for all concerned. The thing to be regretted is that contests of all kinds en- gender a bitterness that some folks find hard to overcome, I can't ever remember hating anybody. My sympathy goes out to one with hate in his heart, for he is the only one to suffer. The best remedy I know is, if I feel slight dislike for anyone is to try to do some little ex- tra courtesy for them which serves as self chastizement, and adds to my-self respect. Think of the lost hours of good friendship one suffers by cher- ishing a grudge. Seems to me that with mo- dern conveyances one county boundary might surround more than one of the present counties and one set of officers could care for all. The "Powers that be" de- creed that t.e (h~tricts of the State should be shifted and c.a,igeo, so I wonder if they! will yet tackle shifting the counties and their bounclaries. As I mentioned before, I saw the original Courthouse burn. I ratner imagme it had been intended for temporary use anyway. But I also witnessed the "laying of the corner stone" of the old brick Court- house, and again was present at a like ceremony for the present stone structure, and from present indications, I'm, quite sure it is going to out- last me. Somewhere along in those years, Our Town felt "growing pains", and we be- gan to feel our needs. One was a modern "Opera House", where upon most of the men of the town chipped into this fund $100 a piece - though I'm sure some of them had to bor- row that money. So we acquired a modern "Opera House". It was very beautiful - inclined floor, bal- cony, very ornate boxes at either end, both upstairs and down. If my memory serves me, we had a professional troupe give the first perfor- mance, "The Little Minister" by James Barrie. Up to this time, our opera house had been the upper floors of two business houses on the west side of the street. Nice size audience room, good stae with dressing rooms at either side. That was where the "Alumni Banouet" was' the year I graduated in 1895. Until this time, all grades were schooled in the old stone school house that stood where the Armory now is. The lower grades in the downstairs and the west room of the upstairs. The high school had the two upper rooms (and sometimes t!~e hall). So shortly, the town yearned for a new high school, so one was erected on the east border of town - a tall draughty structure of limited life tim~.
