They are visiting Dr. and Mrs P. O. Dorweiler here. Mr McElrea and Mrs Dorweiler art! rousins. * * * THE McELREAS ARE ON THE LAST LAP of a four-month world tour. They've been traveling by jet plane and they spent several weeks in Mr McElrea's native Newtownstewart, Ireland, which he hadn't visited since he left there as a young man in 1925. Mrs McElrea was born and reared in New Zealand. After they were married, the couple found that she also has cousins in this area. They are Mrs Sadie Denton of Titonka and Mrs Dan Williams of Britt. ', * * * THE VISITORS ARE BEGINNING TO think that the stories their American cousins told them about Iowa farming when they visited them in New Zealand, are not so tall after all. Farms there are much larger than they are here, but no corn is raised. Mr McElrea was particularly amazed at the row upon row of storage bins. They visited corn-hog farms, cattle feeding farms and a turkey ranch. They enjoyed the Kossuth County Fair, particularly the livestock exhibits and they will go to the Iowa State Fair. Also scheduled is a visit to a Waterloo packing plant—freezing works in New Zealand. * * * AT WEST BEND. WHERE JERRY OLSON is raising 4,000 turkeys, the visitors saw more birds than they ever dreamed existed. Mrs McElrea was taking pictures when a huge gobbler came into focus in the lens, headed straight for her. She headed for the car, jumped in, and nearly closed the door on the bird's neck. It took a bit of talking by Jerry Olson to convince her that the birds were merely curious, not viscious. Mrs McElrea continued her picture taking. * * * MEANWHILE. BACK AT THE RANCH, the McElrea's sons, 22, and 24, are minding the sheep. They are members of the Young Farmer's Union which is comparable to our 4-H. The McElrea farm consists of 600 acres—quite small by New Zealand standards, and they have 2,500 sheep. "You need lots of room for sheep", Mr McElrea explained. He also said that larger spreads are called sheep stations. * » * BECAUSE OF THE MILD CLIMATE, they don't need barns. They have wool sheds for the sheep and cattle are kept warm by wearing rugs. There are no predatory animals, but a few years ago, the sheep industry suffered great blows from rabbits! The bunnies, once domesticated, began to run loose, they multiplied quickly and robbed the sheep of grass. After a government rabbit extermination plan, the sheep population went back up and now it stands at an estimated 86 million. * * * WORKING LIKE A DOG IS MORE,than an- idle phrase in New; Zealand. Each sheep farm has several tlbgs and they are well worth the $280 to $300 each.that they cost. They are never pets and are not allowed inside the-ho'use yard. Each dog responds to his master. ^There's a .uniform set of signals with certain whistles for eaith command. Many ranch ha'hds own fheir own dogs, and they are hired as much for the efficiency of the'.animals as they are for their own labor. . f • .' . ••.•••„ - ,:. THERE ARE HEADING DOGS WHO catch the whistled signal from as far as a half-mile away and bring back the sheep. There are hunt-away dogs whose" special duty is .chasing; there are leader dogs, who slow down the fastest sheep f until the stragglers can catch up; and there are backing dogs who run over the backs,of the sheep to bark in the ear* of the leader' sheep. ' * * * . PERHAPS THE STRANGEST OF ALL IS THE STRONG-eye dog. His master picks out one particular sheep out of a flock of hundreds and tells the dog to catch him. The dog looks the sheep direct in the eye with a hypnotic gaze, and holds it until he gets to it. This has a devastating effect on the sheep and the dog has no trouble bringing it back to his master. - * » * "WORK HORSES HAVE BEEN replaced by tractors in New Zealand as they have been here. The McElreas have three of them, and some of the sheep ranchers cover the range in land rovers, whidt is a jeep to us. / v, * • • ..*>:, HOMES ARE PRETTY MUCH THE same as they are here, alib. They have electricity, deep-freezes, automatic laundry equipment, dishwashers and telephones. However, they don't have screens and storm windows. New Zealand homemakers have to cook mote meals than we do here. Breakfast comes early; morning tea is at 10; dinner at noon, and afternoon tea is at 3:30. The meal at'6 is simply called tea and between 9 and 10 p.m. supper, consisting of tea and biscuits, served. Biscuits are crackers to us and cakes, cookies. * * » - .-• MUTTON IS THE MAIN MEAT IN NEW ZEALAND with pork or beef a couple of times a month for a change. The choicest mutton is not lamb, as we^think here, but hagget, which is the sheep at about the same stage of development as our baby beef. '.-'*,* * . • MR AND MRS McELREA plan to be home by Sept. 20 because that's when the lambing season starts. It'll be spring then, "down under", and there'll be plenty of work for everyone. * * . * - • I HAD NO LESS THAN TEN phone calls this week about the column on Mrs Murtagh. This not only pleased me, it gave me a chance to visit with severql people I hadn't talked with for quite a while. All agreed that Mrs Murtagh was an extra-ordinarily fine person. , ,-• • >' * * • " IT SEEMS TO ME THAT PEACHES are extra-delicious this year. Each week I've been buying a crate-ful to can, but I haven't cannned a single one. They are too good eaten fresh, and if my family prefers them that way, I guess I'll save myself some work and not worry about next winter. Peaches are wonderful to use in desserts, too. Nelda Finn called me today with a peach pie recipe. It was given to her by Zada Schwartz, who formerly lived here. It's this week's recipe^ 1 cup sugar 2 tablespoons flour Va pint coffee cream 1, 9 inch unbaked pie shell. '.. ,, Mix the flour, sugar and cream. Slice 2 or 3 peaches, place in shell and pour mixture ayer them. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour. .-4 —GRACE. f Silver Anniversary LuVtrno — Open house will honor the silver wedding anniversary of Mr and Mrs William Goetsch, LuVerne, 2:30 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 28, m the LuVerne Methodist church.
