I have seen in the Waterloo Times that Miss Ida Sommer & two girl friends from Columbia motored to Louisville, Kentucky, where they will spend a week seeing many points of interest such as Mammoth Cave, Lincoln’s birthplace at Hodgenville, Ky., The Old Kentucky home of Bardstown & Camp Knox. They expect to return home Sat. Also Miss Marie Kolmer and Louise Dalkert left Sat. for a tour of the west. Their stops will include Denver, Colorado Springs, Estes & Yellowstone parks. They will be gone about 2 weeks. A 8 lb. baby girl was born to Mr. & Mrs. Geo. Strattman, the shoe man, at St. Mary’s Hospital, East St. Louis, Monday morning. They now have a pair.
