Okay His smiling countenance was in evidence on Harney street, near the postoffice Monckay, fol- lowing an absence of several weeks while he staged a little bout in the Hillsboro Tuality Hospital with the surgical knife, the ,bedpan, the nurses, that yard of cloth with two strings (we called it an idot jacket.) It's O. K. Aldrich, veteran Raleigh Pro- ducts dealer in the Phil Sheridan Country, who experienced this tussle with "Doe" Sawbones. The frienddy gentleman of Yamhill street, perhaps sitting around ,home convalescing, and looking for something todo, pen- ned this little note to The Sun this week: "Advise anyone going to die hospital to take along your pajamas and bathrobe. The only garment furnished consists of a yard of cloth with two strings attached. Witfli the two above mentioned you can get out in the .hallway and get some need- ed exercise, anti get acquainted with others.

He had a watch that was new 80 years ago, an4 it was almost as large as a saucer. It is so heavy that if he lost it out of his poc- ket, his shoulder on that side would have raised perceptibily. Speaking of the watch 'he said: "I wouldn't tak a ffmnert dol for de dam ting'. On the subject of time his comment: "One hour here goes fast a mont outside." On nurses: "They slip out and scatter all over hell." "To those wfio wished me well on my stay there and sent me cards and flowers, I wish to say thanks, friends. I surely needed YOur confidence. And a special thanks to the good neighbor wffto kept the water pipes at home from freezing during the cold, weather.,, ggez" o A proud young Sheridan grandmother, finishing a husky noon lunch in a local care the other day, commented to friends nearby that she quit paying at- tention to her figure when the men quit looking.

We're tipping our hat today to Charlie Jordan of Strout Realty and, Dean Filler of Oregon-Washing- ton Telephone.o. Their efforts also reflect on the business cli- mate of the community. H. B. Myers, president of Strout Realty, has notified Chas. Jordan that e has maintained his Strout Leader's Club stand- ing through 1962. This was ac. complished ,by only 13 of the 1961 club members, according to the top executive of the large realty firm. In his congratulatory letter to the local real estate man, Myers said: "Your name will appear prominently in the January Strout World and an engraved; plaque, suitable for your office wall, will be sent to you soon." The Intercom, publication for offices and personnel of Oregon- Washington Telephone Co., re- "veals that the Sheridan area met its 1962 quota on new tele- phone stations, 80, making a grand total of 1,866 for Sheri. dan, rWillamina and Grand. Ronde. About half of the ex- changes made their quota, and lille Burns area made the great- est jump in additions of tele- phone stations. The gain speaks well for Dean Filler and his fine staff, and in. dicates the uward trend in* many businesses in the area .the last year. : $ $ $ Cukle t : A woman ,ordered a hat from a department store : during the Christmas rush.
