It was fun hearing Marie Button's account of her trip to Miami. It's nice to learn how the other half lives, and according to her, many really live. Such luxury to which we'd all like to become accustomed. * * • Mr and Mrs Ray Beamish visited at the parental Mr and Mrs Edgar Beamishes • in Iowa Falls recently anu there joined Ray's sister and niece Mi;s Connie Stewart and Joan Stewart Adair (Mrs Ben) and children Shannon and Stewart, Phoenix, Any..

Mrs Ernest Egel is noted for her good homemade bread and when she recent ly visited friends in Must-aline, she was asked to make a batch. She started the project and then it was suddenly decided to drive to Nichols, some 16 miles, to visit, other friends. What to do with the bread then in it's early stages? Why, take it along, of course. So having reach Nichols, when the proper time arrived, the bread was kneaded, shaped into loaves, left to rise, (or should I say raise) And then it was time to go back to Muscaline but the bread was not ready for baking, Well, just bundle it up and take it back —'twas the only solution. And back it went to the oven in Muscatine, and better bread you never tasted. * * » I have missed Maurice Pearson from the Lawrence Welk program. I have enjoyed his singing so much so I wrote to find out what had happened to him. Comes the reply, "Your comments about Maurice Pearson are very kind and I regret to say that he made his last appearance with our band Sept. 24. He has decided to continue singing on his own in order to further his career in fields other than television. We wish him every success." » * * Ain't it the truth? An old- fashioned girl never heard of an "Old Fashioned". And Sam says the trouble with most political jokes is that too many of them gel elected.

Mankato Youth Stole Tractor; Held At Lakota A 13-year old Mankato, Minn, boy travelled CO miles on a tractor for nothing Monday, Nov. 14, due to the suspicions of J. E. Ukena, Lakota. implement dealer. As a result, the would-be young farmer is now in custody and theft of a $3.000 tractor, with plow attached, was solved. Employees of a Mankato implement firm saw the youth get on the tractor and drive it out of the company yard early Monday morning, but didn't worry about it because they thought the machine had been rented to a construction firm in the area. The boy charged $6.30 worth of gasoline at a Mankato station and started south. Evidently his next stop was at the E. J. Butler implement company at Elmore. After asking where Iowa was, he talked with Mr Butler, who later heard reports of the theft. He then called the Mankato firm and told them about the boy who he had seen. The boy also stopped at the Marvin Junkermeier farm south. of Elmore and asked for work, but no help was needed, so he continued on his way to Lakota and the meeting with Mr Ukena. He entered Ukena's building and tried to make a deal for the tractor with the owner. Mr Ukena then checked into the matter and iound the tractor had been stolen. Details were reported and the boy was picked up Tuesday and leturned to Minnesota. The Mankato firm sent a man for its tractor the same day. Sheriff Emil Meurer of. Blue Earth county is holding the boy for juvenile court. The youth had leporledly been in several other scrapes with the law recently.
