Mr. Howard Morrison, his wife, daughter, Gratia, and son "Billie" of Denver, Colorado, arrived Thursday evening for a hurried visit with Greenwood Friends of Mr. Morrison, and with his mother, Mrs. Gratia Schofield Young, who arrived the Monday previous.

This is Howard's first visit to Greenwood in Approximately thirty years, and though he found few here who went to school with him when he was a youngster of eight or nine (except "Fuzzy" Volk and Art Buker), he found quite a number of the older residents. "Billie" and Gratia, who had never seen a cow milked, and never visited on a farm, had the time of their lives rambling with their parents and grandmother thought the palatial ld home which their great grandfather, Robert Schofield built in the early 1880's. They made flying visits with their father to the dam, the old swimming hole, the rips, out to see how John Wuethrich makes butter, through the cannery, and put in the rest of their time helping the Schmidt children drive the cattle to pasture, observing and participating in other farm activities, on the old Schofield place. When it came time to round up the youngsters for the drive on to Milwaukee, Billie reluctantly came in from the field where he was having the grandest time every – following the cultivator! Though he showed signs of unmistakable disgust when his father brought up to a stop in Greenwood, he showed unmistakable disappointment when time came to leave. Asked if he had had a good time, he grumbled out, "Yes," what little time there was!"

Mrs. Morrison, a Connecticut Yankee, born in Hartford, had never visited Wisconsin before, and had many nice things to say about the beauty of the state. She feels that with this first hand acquaintance with Greenwood environs, she is going to enjoy sitting in on her husband's visits with Fred Hartson (who they see frequently) much more in the future than she has heretofore. With the usual interest of the uninitiated, she saw her first stump fence on the old Sundermeyer farm.

Mr. Morrison regretted much having missed Floyd Volk and family, but hopes he may see them perhaps within the next few months. He is sales manager for a commercial clearing house which supplies a legal service to banks, corporations, bond houses, etc., over a western territory comprising several states, including Washington. He and his family came here from Chicago, where they spent a week combining business with pleasure, which included visiting his uncle Hugh and the Century of Progress.
