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.
