A Norwegian family living in Minnesota, wishing a girl of their own nationality to work for them, sent a ticket to one of Signe's friends, who did not wish to leave her home. "Here's your chance, Signe," said her father. Signe traveled to America to become a nursemaid, but found herself unsuited to the employment. "I wasn't much good as a nursemaid," Signe declares, "but I was excellent at outdoor work, so it turned out just fine. The wife took care of the children and ! worked outside." For the first year, Signe worked for board and room; the second year paid for her ticket; she earned, during her third year, one dollar per week. "I've paid my own way ever since I came to this country," Mrs. Kneeland states. Because of her employment with a Norwegian-speaking tamily, Signe Kneeland, at the end of three years, could not yet speak English. She changed employers, and after three years in an English-speaking household she had mastered the language.

While visiting a sister in the East, Mrs. Cannon was introduced to Fantasy Fur. She brought supplies when she returned to'her home, and proceeded to perfect many patterns. "I let my imagination run wild," she admits, "And I came up with several fascinating animals as well as many types of flowers."

"I carried 50 wheelbarrow loads of rocks out of our garden-spot and then I gave up." A poodle named Lulu is her pet. "I picked fir cones to earn the money to buy her," Mrs. Cannon states. Camping is a family recreation, and Lela Cannon sews and knits in addition to her many artistic projects. "I've been interested in handicrafts all of my life," she declares.
