(VPM Newsfoto) Area Cadets Report On Early Activities At Air Academy Reports of early going at the Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colo., have been received here by the parents of three of the four boys from this area who recently became cadets there. Word has been received from Dick Muller and Dave Gerber, Algona, and William Mino, Swea City, since the 1907 high school graduates began their four years- plus at the Academy. Young Muller sent along a daily schedule which shows ttie lads roll out of bed each day at 5:30 a. m. — and are required to hit the sack at 9:30 p. m. each day (and they are probably ready by then). The heavy slate includes three training periods, ranging in length from one hour and 15 minutes to 2 1/2 hours, about four hours of varied sports' training, with a half-hour for breakfast and dinner and an hour for supper. And, the one mile run listed 10 minutes after they arise proves the military means business — at least in getting the men in topflight condition. Mino is a member of Beaver Squadron, Gerber is in Guts Squadron and Muller is in Devil Squadron. Dave said, "I got my ride in the T33 (jet trainer) this morning and it was really something. We took off from Peterson Field for a 45 minute ride, flew over the Academy, back into the mountains and circled Pike's Peak." Before landing, the pilot put the ship through fast and slow rolls at about 350 miles per hour. He also told of climbing not one, but two mountains while on a Sunday picnic outing and is a member of the church choir, which he apparently enjoys — maybe because they get to eat without any upperclassmen present Sunday mornings. Dave also told of survival training which at the time the letter was written was coming up for three weeks in Jack's Valley. Then he was to have a free week at a summer resort before being inducted into the wing, complete with shoulder boards and a 4th classman rating. As fourth classmen they will be known as Dulles, but are called squats and smocks at pre- sent. Shortly after induction, Parent's Weekend is slated at the Academy. Young Mino told of having the opportunity to see the first movie he had a chance to since arrival at the Academy. He said, "Everywhere we go we have to be escorted by First Classmen (seniors), so we have to move when they are ready." About meals, he added, "We march to the dining hall in formation. As soon as we get inside the door we must stand with heads erect, but eyes on the floor. Then we find our table, but that isn't as hard as it sounds. We sit when we are told with out backs straight and heads erect, but with our eyes on the center of the plate. Our eyes are supposed to stay there throughout the meals unless spoken to by anupperclassman." Bill also told about the jet ride— and said the food at the Academy is real good. According to his parents, he often closes his letters, which have to be written during the last 25 minutes before taps, with "Got to clean black marks off the floor now." Ed Elbert Is President Of Whittemore Golf Club Big Jump In School Costs Ed Elbert, who is one of six men responsible for stirring up interest and the ultimate construction of a golf course at Whittemore, was elected first president of the Whittemore Country Club during a meeting of stockholders and other interested persons at the Legion hall there Monday evening. The other three officers elected during the session are also from Whittemore. They are Albert Kramer, vice president; Harold Poppen, secretary; and Vic Perkins, treasurer. Other original directors are H.R. Pettit, Whittemore, and Du Wayne Germann, Fenton; while Ronnie Gerber, Algona; Barney Thilges, St. Joe; and Dr. John Uren, West Bend, were new directors elected Monday. The new president also announced the club now has 175 members and will have more, despite the fact the original goal of 150-175 has now been surpassed. The board will now hire a consultant engineer to study the site, about a mile east of Whittemore, and make a decision on the actual construction of the 9-hole course and a club house for use of members and their families. Joe Straub, Algona attorney, was selected as the club's attorney at the meeting. At Bancroft Bancroft's public school budget for this school year was approved Monday with an increase of $14,824 in expenditures over 19GG-C7. There were no objections made by taxpayers. The ne\v budget is $76,000, with $05,945 to be raised by taxes. Ed Richter, secretary of the school board, said the tax increase will be in the neighborhood of $16,000.

On Wheels More than a third of Bermuda's adult population rides two-wheelers—bicycles, motor-bikes or motorcycles—because they are easier to handle than cars on the 21- square-mile isle with its scenic but narrow lanes. 8WEA-EAGLEI =s By Mrs. Kenneth Brones fj Many persons of the area attended the wedding of Pamela Fagerluud and Delbert Lieurance Sunday at the Immanuel Lutheran Church.
