Mrs. Olaf Anderson, 532 West Iron Avenue, is entertaining an interesting visitor in the person of her friend, Mrs. Charles Rahmgren of Red Oak, Iowa. The ladies are girl friends, having lived as next door neighbors in their childhood in Sweden. They came together to America fifty-two years ago. Shortly after landing they parted in Chicago. As they had never met since until Mrs. Rahmgren’s visit here to her old friend, the circumstances make the visit of unusual significance.
