Mrs. George Krinke of Minneapolis suffered a severely sprained ankle when a stool on which she was standing to put the finishing touches to a Christmas tree, collapsed. Winter blew in earnest during the holidays. Starting with a sleet storm last Friday, the mercury started a steady drop, and reached a record of 28 below Monday night. The absence of any wind, however, made the cold snap a little easier to take. Monday afternoon Mmes. P.J. Majerus, Ralph Samuelson, Henry Oelkers, William Gruhlke and Martin Majerus were hostesses at a party at the home of Mrs. P.J. Majerus in honor of their birthdays, all of which occurred sometime in December. Mrs. Jane Caswell and George Wright of Zumbrota were out of town guests. WILLIAM CROUCH GARAGE:
