The turkey dinner and supper
that was held at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Ed Steskal Thanksgiving
was a grand success and was en
joyed by all present. About 11:30
the guests began to congregate to
enjoy the bounteous feast of the
day. Everything had been pre
arranged so as to prevent confusion
and balance the festive board for
both dinner and supper. This is
usually decided by the celebrants
as they arrange for more of a
variety thus escaping the chances
of foundering on turkey.
That is very likely as the grass
hoppers were fairly numerous last
summer and I know there were a
lot of those grasshopper foundered
on fence posts, and it might be
contageous so a balanced ration
seemed to be the best, especially
when five big roast turkeys were to
be devoured inside of seven hours.
The charming young ladies of
this vicinity very capably served
the savory Hole-bo turkeys and all
the accompaniments for a delicious
dinner and supper which was pre
pared by the best cooks in the
After supper we began to re
ceive dope on the football game
between O’Neill and Atkinson. The
majority seemed to have a little
kale on Atkinson, but the writer
suspected if O’Neill got a toe hold
another apple cart was sure to be
upset. But we understand, the
boys held a stiff upper lip and put
up a splendid game even if their
antagonist carried home the bacon.
After the novelty of the game
ceased, the chairman introduced
Mr. Charlie Deihl who favored us
with a short talk on the topics of
the day. Being well posted and
no defects or affects, and surround
ed by a legion of friends, he had no
apoligies to make and urged and
encouraged us all to express our
selves on what is going on all
around us. Surely there are times
in the life of every one of us when
we wished we were able, or more
able, to express ourselves with
more assurance and self confidence.
Speaking is a natural gift and
interesting when you posses the
truth and the ability to combat
against those lukewarm apostles on
We all enjoyed the remarks and
were glad to have a chance to swap
•yarns on this occasion. It’s useless
to insert the names of those who
were present, as I have a sneaking
idea that our local editor is short
on space. But all had a gala day
and we don’t want the W. C. T. U.
to know anything about it as they
might reflect on the present admin
istration. Extending our hospit
ality to all concerned. E. S. E.
