LEON AfTO MUL
Listen, my children, and let me tell
The story of two people whom you
all know well- _ __
Of a girl named Ethel and ner in

Here’s the way I heard it. and i
think it’s so.
She lived in Norfolk what they two
met; . . . _, . „
She—attractive, talented, and run.
He an ambitious young man from |
the wide prairie—
Came to Norfolk to school and the
city to see.
It's a story of love that is real and
A story that’s old. yet forever new,
Of a girl and a hoy and the home
How they hoped and planned and
worked and prayed.
Well, it’s the same old story of
girl meets boy,
Boy likes girl, but girl is coy.
But boy decides she’s the one he
And he tells her so on their horse
•and buggy jaunts.
At last she said ,,Yes”, and they
began to plan
This young school ma’am and her
fine young man.
And in the Doughty home the lines
The promises made and the vows
So on March 17 of 19-O-Nine
They two were made one and in
the nick of time
They escaped to Wamerville where
they caught the train
And started their life with its sun
shine and rain.
It wasn’t easy, this life on the
They both worked had with might
The country was yoang, the con
And tliey and their neighbors found
much to do.
There are lots of stories that they
The Vigilantes chased him, riding
He managed to escape by his
And by tricking the gang, a daring
There is one story that she can tell
About a pot of beans that began to I
TUI she filled her kettles and dish-1
They had plenty of beans for a
week or two.
Two sons came to bless their home:
Charles and Harvey, now men full
Charles, who doctored the dogs
when he was small,
Now doctors children, the best of
Charles and Carita, his home-town
Have lived near andi far at their
And with four fine youngsters are
doing their share
To make a good home and to make
TTie younger son, Harvey, came
back here to live
With his college sweetheart their
strength to give
To toe good things of life in the
Church, school, and their children
Now we’re here together on this
A day full of memories, some sad
and some gay,
A day to honor this man and his
Who have lived together fifty
years of life.
Through the years they have given
with unselfish love
To their community, their church
and God above
Of talents and time and neighborly
To minister to others and their
So—here’s wishing you well, dear
father and mother.
Good neighbors, good friends, sister
May God bless you and keep you,
each one and t’other
And while we are absent, one
from the other.
