For years, Sheraton Corporation of America, which also owns the prestigious Sheraton-Blackstone in Chicago, had a second hotel at 505 N. Michigan, called the Sheraton Towers. This 400 room hotel had been built in 1929 as a sumptuous athletic club for the Medinah Temple of the Shrine. Sheraton acquired it in 1947. It had perhaps the most complete banquet and meeting facilities in Chicago, but its 400 rooms were not enough to attract convention business. So Sheraton decided to add 600 rooms, at a cost of $10 million. While the new 26-story building was rising alongside, the existing hotel was redecorated and refurnished from top to bottom. Two new restaurants were created. E"ven the facade of the building was sandblasted for the first time in 30 years. With a brand new hotel created, a new name was needed .... and thus the birth of the Sheraton- Chicago which is now home to most major league football and baseball clubs, houses the Big Ten, and is the scene of countless important press conferences. It has seven restaurants and lounges, including the spectacular Kon-Tiki PORTS and famous Golliwog Girls in the Golliwog Lounge. It has a 16th floor luxury swimming pool, free to registered guests (as is parking in the underground garage). All guest rooms feature air- conditioning, direct dial telephoning, message signal lights, television and AM-FM radio. It has an electronic mail and message center in its lobby, and for handling reservations, it features Sheraton's electronic whiz, Reservatron, which can confirm space anywhere in the country within seconds. Students From Twin Rivers On Field Tours OTTOSEN - Twin Rivers 7th graders went on a field trip to Ft. Dodge Tuesday. There were about 50 students with their teachers, LeRoy Enger and Arnold Larson. They saw hogs being processed at Hormel and had a tour of the YMCA. Half of the students then visited the post office while the others visited the new fire station. Walter Bakken was bus driver. Twin Rivers sixth graders, 15 from Ottosen and 19 from Livermore, enjoyed a Conservation tour Wednesday. Mrs. Dorothy Turley and Melba Fox are teachers. They went to Humboldt where their first stop was the conservation office to pick up Henry Staubus, Conservationist. They traveled to various parts of the county where they saw contour plowing, strip cropping and terraces. At the Morehouse farm, they saw a permanent farm pond. They saw ducks and other wild birds in this area. They observed planting of pine trees and were given information on how to identify various pines. They also saw how soil is tested for lime. At noon they enjoyed a sack lunch at Gotch Park, after which they played softball. They visited the fish hatchery, where a million are spawned each year. Mr. Staubus presented the awards for their conservation books. Conqratulat -/JKRWOUU _ ALGONA, ,OWA ^ffi? ^^^ "Your Pirtiwrln Progress" K«»gth County'.
