don smith OUR crew (mom! dad, Dan, Bill and Martha) took its annual trek to the Twin Cities Aug. 3-5 and as usual had a great time — coining home tired, hungry and full of memoirs. WE stayed at the Holiday Motor Hotel again, a spot we like because it is not too far from lots of things - and driving in the suburbs at the cities is fast, anyway, so even a baseball game at Met Stadium is not too far away. MARTHA probably saw more trucks, tractors and cars on the way to the cities than at any other time in her life. Her limited vocabulary allows her to tell us every time she sees one — so her conversation was quite constant, and enjoyed by all. PRESS boner - The Duchess of Windsor counteracted rumors by kissing her husband (the Duke) eight times on the gangplank-St. Petersburg, Fla. Times. ONLY one rest stop was required on the trip to the cities— and that came just as we reached Minneapolis— so made good time up old 169. Decided it sjire would be nice if the planned Interstate (that Mason City and Clear Lake want running north through their area) could run north instead in the area of Garner, which would make the tour even simpler. ONCE at the motel, Martha had to make a few attempts at unlocking the door — but didn't get the job done, so the rest of us helped her get it open. AFTER getting settled, suitcases opened and things that had to be hung up, climbed right back in the car and headed for Southdale — a shopping center which has never gotten much of our money, but plenty of attention— and their display this time was a miniature zoo, with a baby lion, tiger, moose, fox, deer, etc. in cages that were sur- Grethen House 1514 NO.

FOR RESERVATIONS rounded at all times by little people and big people alike. OUR youngest especially enjoyed the littlest bear we've ever .seen, and at times thought she had some way of communicating with it— at any rate they seemed to hit it off wonderfully well. To her, the two cute little deer were "goggles" — that means doggies to you non-parents. AND If you think the fire engines here attract the attention of small fry (and big fry, too), you should have seen us rush to the door of the motel when a fire whistle sounded and the trucks took off from a station nearby. You'd thought we had never seen one before. Later found out a barn burned down on a farm nearby and saw films of the blaze on the late news that night. PRESS boner - Kim Novak's romantic life has made rather dull copy since her idyll was nipped in the but - Las Vegas, Nev. Optic. WE were looking around for things to see Thursday evening when we turned west and headed toward an area we had never visited. Lots of big plants and office buildings in the area of recent vintage, including Honeywell, General Mills and the Minnesota Gas quarters, which are all beautiful. NOTED this trip that service in super markets and other stores does not compare with most places in this area. Didn't see a super market that had help sacking groceries for customers like the stores do it here. The checkout girls total your purchase, then sack your items, making the entire process very slow. And clerks in stores seem to act like they are doing a person a favor if they wait on you. Of course, the crush of traffic in the form of customers probably gets old to sales people after a short time' of employment. At any rate, made us appreciate the good people in most places here. BILL and Dan and myself took a trip to a slot racing center while mom stayed home with our sleeping Martha - only to find the place closed. Went next door to a smaller layout and the lads got to run their cars, although not enjoyed too much. Talked us into taking them back later in the day when the big one was open, so all of us made the trip - and-Martha, like her big brothers, was a peach all the time we were gone. She paid quite a bit of attention to the racing and even made a few attempts at setting flipped cars back on the track— although without much luck. WE'LL bring you more on the trip next week — and that* s a threat I OLD Maid : A girl of 24, where she should be about 36 -Henny Youngman.
