Humphrey say it is very nice up there. Perhaps more so for the younger generation for. it is ;& bustling community, this Ketchikan where they visited their son and daughter-in-law, Mr and Mrs Madison Humphrey, They made the trip both ways via plane from Minneapolis.

Melvin Henderson of Upland, Cal., had a newspaper clipping enclosed which stated the yeai 1958 is the warmest since the U.S. Weather Bureau was established on July 1, 1877. Highest temperature of 1958 was 104, Oct. 10. Well, it's nice to; read about back here where it's been pretty chilly. *...:*•. » Before the big g^ame New Yearo day at Pasadena, Melvin had written he was torn between-the two ' teams, his Jieart is in Iowa, he said, but his ,Alma Mater was involved. The Alma Mater must have won Out uppermost, for in this last letter, of the game he says -s- "California did not,play Iowa, but a team composed of all-Americans from the! en tiro U.S.A. When .they read the list of players and -where • they aro from, the Iowa team, outside of Duncan, was all from the eastern part of the country. On the other hand, every man on the California squad was from California." Well, California is made up of lowans, and who knows, maybe the California players are offspring of lowans. California is so smug (no, I don't mean SMOG —;tho'' they have plenty of that), they have the., weather, Ihe scenery, the movies, 'the oil —• but (Editor's note — Six other lowans.
