ON LAND ON ICE IN THE WATER -M.'.v'iiarcl L. ropp of Okauchoc. WIS , has buit a very veVsaTilo vehicle in his 1™ on wheels." The alununum-and-stecl vehicle has plex.glass windows and a 65-hoi-scpower airplane engine powering a pusher propeller. Popp uses the runners leaning against the vehicle to do 100 miles an hour on the frozen surface of Lake Okauchee in winter. He plans to fit it with pontoons for use in the water this summer. Lack of proper brake.--, prohibits liccnsim; the vehicle for highway use. By Hub Hullihun Slury of a veiling man who liked to be st".-ii both guint; and coming, though hi* ended up by going in mil' diiiT 'lion only—out. This young man of ipeeuliar habits mice functioned on the country roads around a southeast Iowa city. This is the report on him. Hi' spoilt much time and pa­ tience adjusting the brakes on his hot-rod type car. Safety con- sciou.-.'.' No, just unconscious, For the adjustment he made was such that when the brakes were applied sharply at a good speed, the en jumped so far to the left that le ended up almost broadside in the road. He was a quick-turn artist. With his car so equipped, it was the young man's simple pleasure to go driving on the country roads until he found another car going in the same direction. He would trail the car closely for a time, then ipass and remain just ahead until a hill or sharp curve came up. Dropping over the hill or out of sight around the curve, he would slam on his crazy brakes. The car would jump and skid broadside to the left, turning almost completely around in the road. A second later when the following car came in sight, the young man would be driving back on the way he had come. The people in the other car would be properly mystified and our young man would swell with ome kind of misguided joy. The quick-turn artist is no longer practicing his art. The day came when his brakes and peed caused the car to overturn. The boy and his car rolled down the highway and out of the picture. VACATION Mickey Mantle sets another record. Hern he is shown drinking tin* largest milk shake in the world. The tumbler contains 15C/j quarts of milk and 31 packages of milk-shake mix. Mickey's admirrrs are the contestants for Dairy Princess in Westchester County, N. Y., who served milk shakes the day Mickey played bull with 11 Babe Kuth team there. I '.S. Mickey needed an assist to finish the giant shake! Dreams do come true! At least for a group of Babe Ruth League baseball players in Pleasnntvmc, T?. "ST. They pluyca -bull recently with Mickey Mantle. Here's what happened: The team of boys between KS and 15 years were out practicing- on their diamond when they saw a big red convertible drive onto the field. Mickey Mantle was behind t 'ie wheel. The kids swarmed the baseball star. Answering questions, Mickey said, "Sure, I should hit over .300 this year, but I don't know how much over it . . . No, I don't think I'll break Babe Kuth's record . . . The Yankees should win the pennant . . . The lon;jest homer I hit was in Washington; some people tell mo it was 500 feet." 'i'hen Mickey asked the team, to take to the field and "Let me hit some." As towering drives and scorching grounders boomed oft his powerful bat, the Babe Kuthers, believe it or not, fielded every one perfectly. After the 'baseball activities, Mickey called the boys together. He was holding a giant milk sliaKe luiuUler. "Look fellows, I had two reasons for coming today. I heard what a great little team you have, and wanted to play some ball with you. But there is another reason. Milk is mighty important to people who are growing up," Mickey _aid. "We're going to have milk shakes right here and we'll make them in a jiffy from this milk-shake mix. "Then we'll spread the word about this—and hope more kids start drinking more milk and, if they don't want it plain, they can see how easy it is to make a homemade milk _hake and drink it this way." Mickey and the Babe Ituth Leaguers were joined by a group of Dairy Princess finalists spon* sored by the Dairy Council and Grange from the area — and Mickey,who hits the longest ball, proved he is willing to tackle, the biggest milk shake, too.
