AIM STEM Pirate party closes arts school sv JULIAN CNRISCHILLIS "Tito tawri * tot* Am*" Four previous trips with tho family are just a prelude to a rather extensive venture this year . . . past vacations to Wisconsin. St. Louis, the Black Hills-and Yellowstone and Minnesota are somewhat dwarfed by this 17-day Eastern jaunt that will include stops at Gettysburg, Washington, D. C., Atlantic City, N. J., New York City, and quite probably Expo 67 at Montreal, Canada. Normally, we plan things well in advance and 1 we have made a number of prior reservations . . . but we had left a little latitude this time in motel selections and have not been disappointed . . . the first night was spent at the Holiday Inn in Iowa City and accommodations were excellent, but Saturday night we goofed in getting a reservation for Holiday Inn in Cleveland and were referred to the Rainbow Motel in Cleveland. We were happily surprised . . . the usual swimming pool was included and a rustic cafe with a "George Washington" motif was far better than most motel eating facilities. A scenic pond with a paddle boat gave the younger members of the family much enjoyment, as well as pinball and pool for the older boys, so they were satisfied too. We recalled a 600-mile drive dad made with three squirming boys in the back seat 30 years ago in a 1937 Chevrolet and marveled at how much easier we have it now days . . . back in 1937, we ate dust all day, slept in somewhat primitive cabins (compared to the deluxe motels of today), and took 13 hours to cover mileage that takes only 10 hours now, plus the wonderful convenience of air conditioning. Except for a short stretch near Chicago, you travel from near Des Moines all the way to the East Coast on Interstate highways . . . although the posted speed limit is 70 miles per hour, you won't pass a car all day if you drive at that speed. Everyone seems to be whi/xing along at 80-plus. But the speed seems to take its toll . . . you can't travel more than five miles without seeing either some guy with his head buried under the hood of his stalled car (and if they don't know any more about a car motor than I do, they v would be better off waiting inside for a mechanic) or dad pumping the jack to replace a blown out or flat tire. The rubber companies must just love these interstates . . . hunks and pieces of shredded tires litter the roadways for miles on end. We pass Chicago and Cleveland and the kids never glimpse the big cities . . .the Intcrstates keep you far distant from downtown skylines and the motels are stretigically situated 10 or 15 miles from "where the action is" . . . judging by the action of recent days, we're happy to be out in the sticks. A day, or rather we should say a half-day at Gettysburg, Pa., famed Civil War Battle field, is our first sight-seeing stop. Two days on the road were spent in "getting somewhere" but now 1200 miles later, we are ready to see and do ... the trip from Cleveland consumes 61/2 hours, but it is a beautiful one through the Allegheny mountains. A Civil War student could spend an entire summer here, browsing through the museums, battlefields and reading the inscriptions on some 2500 monuments . . . we choose a two-hour t<mr by.,a government guide who rides in, your car and traces the ebb arid flow of the'3-day battle that turned the tide of the Civil War hack on .July 1 - 3, 1863. He is a pleasant young man, a native of Gettysburg, who is now a medical student at the University of Pittsburgh and is spending his summer giving tours. The job must he monotonous since he gives five tours a day and repeats the same story, roughly 450 times during the summer. Even the kids seem to catch (lie battle fever and follow the narrative closely as we traverse 17 of the 51 miles of road through the battlefields. We'll not bore our readers further on the subject except to pass on the information that had the South won this battle, they'd have won the War and there would probably be two separate nations instead of the U. S. A. today . . . our guide tells us that in six separate instances, the Rebels came within minutes of winning the battle. It was the costliest in this country's military history with 51,000 casualties in just three days. Gettysburg is a peaceful town of 9,000 which can grow little since it is .surrounded by government-owned land with memorials and battlefields. One ironic little twist . . . our guide points out, that there are six statues of generals on horseback, all built by separate institutions . . . and quite by accident, each general whose horse has two of its four hoofs off the ground was wounded but recovered and each with all four hoofs on the ground was not injured. Gettysburg is probably known equally well as the present residence of ex-president Eisenhower as for its battle history . . . "Ike" is in town during our one- day visit and we see the farm from the road . . . our guide tells us that "Ike" visits bis downtown office daily, getting to work between 7 and 9 a.m. but we vote down any wait outside the gate for a quick peek at him ... he tells us that "Ike" is gracious and happy to chat a few minutes with the faithful who are lucky enough to catch him ... he is guarded by two personal bodyguards as well as six secret servicemen who reside here , . . however, only one accompanies him on his daily rounds. The guide further adds that he recalls when the government staff moved here after one of liis heart attacks 11 years ago and headquarters were in what is now the post office . . . the town swarmed with newsmen and Secret Service men during those days and our guide reports he attended the same Presbyterian church that "Ike" did . . . he reports it was an odd sight to see the many Secret Service men with heads upright, looking around while the congregation prayed . . . "Reach under your coat to scratch yourself and you'd have 12 Secret Service men staring clown your throat," he gleefully reported. Don't despair over Iowa's new 3 r ; sales tax. Pennsylvania has a fat 5' < sales tax and has had it for a number of years. Raymond CielaiKfe, iftd then M**Jjf wwit to tJIeimwd. to see tti* THUllBAY* Uwrence Morris family. Mfs.
