Visiting In Ames

In Ames, Iowa, with his family on Monday, June 2, 1952, Dale wrote, “Took Helen to Still Hospital in Des Moines for three-day examination.  Had lunch with Merle Osterquist and Wilson.  Supper at Osterquist’s.  Visited Helen in the afternoon and evening.  Back to Ames by 9 p.m.  Dalene and Nancy went to a show at night.”  His lunch and supper were with old friends and co-workers.  Dale and family were staying with Gene and Lela Yates (Helen’s sister), who owned and operated a motel in Ames.  It may have been the 1928 Ames Motor Lodge, below.  Nancy was their daughter.
