'INK in my VEINS' Date ASC elections in Kossuth Tuesday the last Sunday f spent with Mary Fran in Torrance, California, we toured the Kuska Museum. Some seventeen tons of treasures, antiques, and jewels of every description from former times and far-off places line the Wails and fill the niches and corners of this museum, which is reputed to be the largest collection of its kind in the United States, outside of the Smithsonian Institute. On display are more than 20,000 item* of antique china, glassware, furniture, doll*, costume* worn by long- dead king* and queen*, costume* of the time of Lincoln and Grant, a myraid of button*, marble*, book*, bottle*, »hoe« of different period*, beautiful old clock*, chantilly lace shawl*, paisley shawls, homespun coverlets, gobelin tapettriet, hats and gloves. Beautiful cut glass, cameo glass, Venetian glass and samples of the beautiful coin glass produced with such excellent skii! in 1.192 that the government forbade its manufacture after five months. Beautiful pieces of Meissen, Sevres, Capo di Monte, and a set of famous Dresden China. Among the 1200 dolls a rare French doll dressed in hand-made lace and tatin and wearing a necklace of 37 jewel*, each containing a miscroseopic reproduction of a famous painting in the Louvre. There i* the famou* porcelain cat said to contain a fortune in rubies and if it does, just smiles on and keep* it* secret. The museum originated in Kansas and operated there until 1957, when Mr. and Mrs. Kuska filled two large vane> with their — yes, seventeen tons of treasures, and headed west to California to be near their three sons and families. One son at Redondo Beach is an engineer at North American, another an engineer with Northrop and the youngest son an architect in Salinas, who designed the memorial carillon tower on the campus of the University of Nebraska while a senior there. Since the Ku*kas have moved to California they have continued to add to their collection, item* ranging from the two steins once belonging to Hitler, to an original Old Cabin Whiskey bottle made in 1840 by E. C. Boos Company of Philadelphia, whence came originally the nickname "boose," al*o a Paul Rover spoon, an original Frederick Remington and two tumblers, Holly Amber and Agata in Art Glass. The Kuskas celebrated a golden wedding anniversary in June and traveled to Europe bringing back more old world treasures. I haven't begun to tell of the beauty of this collection, the exquisite pieces of furniture, the garnets, the jets, and all the wonderful history that goes with each piece. This collection is worthy of being housed in the most up to date museum and will some day be given so by the Kuska children but I hope the precious history of the various items will not be lost. Mrs. Kuska is a graduate of the Fort Hay* Kansas State College and received her AB degree from the University e< Ilinois. In 1952 she was selected the Kansas State Mother of the Year. In 1962, Fort Hays Kansas State College presented her with an Alumni Achievement Award for the preservation of America'* cultural heritage. Mrs. Kuska, with her husband Joe, Past District Governor of Rotary International, show school children, scouts, clubs, tourists and visitor* from every land through the museum daily. There is no admittance fee but a contribution for upkeep i* accepted if one fool* inclined to do so. .If you are in the Torrance area of California do •top to see this fabulous collection. It is well worth your time and much credit goes to the Kuska* for preserving art and history of the past.

' Irvington Twp. — Edward I am at home again and'happy to be back i o of home affairs again. The grandchildren, children'arid friends are so glad to see me and our little Richard is really a big boy. He still studies me gravely but we'll make up I know. We have a new pony at our place, the pony of all ponies, a nice little fellow. I enjoy seeing the children ride him and am glad they are here in the good country spaces to romp and play. I have a deanery meeting in Algona on Tuesday and return to school on Thursday and Friday. Back in the routine again and glad to bo here. Today we attended the 40th wedding anniversary celebration of our good friends and neighbors the Maurice Bernhards. Visiting with them, seeing their wonderful family, children and grandchildren and greeting friends I haven't seen all summer made this a special occasion. It's nice to think of good, salt of the earth people like the Bernhards are with us and having such a fine family to carry on the good pattern. With these kind of people the world cannot go all wrong. The reason people dream of having a cattle in Spain i* that it'* simpler to find one there. Spain ha* some 1500 castles, but the plumbing of many is still a* medieval a* their battlement*. Hal Boyle gives us this prosperity note: A pawn-shop on First Avenue here posts this sign: "It's no crime to be broke. The crime is to be broke when you can hock something." Insects are both the bane of mankind and also among mankind's best friends. An example i* the boo. Hi* effort* are essential in the pollination of 50 United State* crops worth $1 billion annually. His reward; We steal hi* honey. Relax, be happy, read a good book, play Lara's theme from Dr. Zhivago. Take your vitamins, work hard, you'll sleep well. Write to me. places when the polls .close.
