A Matter Of Opinion

Keo Chronicles: Feb. 14, 1945

(Keo in front of her house near the corner of Monroe and Sinto on Spokane's North Side. Home is still there.)

Iowa had a lovely dinner ready using her best china and linen. Everything went off just right -- a fine turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, string beans, a vegetable salad.

The conversation was easy and friendly -- some jokes -- then the war and current news. Mrs. Wieder got quite vehement in her views. We couldn't tell just what she did want -- was she socialist or communist? She seemed to favor Russia, but we were glad when the subject was changed. She looks like she might be of German descent.
