MORE on Twin Cities trip -as threatened! THE group always plans on at least one Twins baseball game on these junkets — and when we were planning the journey had to choose between seeing the White Sox (who at that time were first in the loop) or the Red Sox (then second, two games out) meet the Twins. Son Bill decided the Red Sox would be great, although we suspected his choice was actually because the Boston club was due a week ahead of the Chisox— and he was anxious to get on the way north. Our skepticism took on more meaning when, after arrangements had been made, he announced that he'd skip the game I - ?OF course, Dan and I would have gone no matter who was slated to play the game. Bill, however, changed his mind shortly before game time, so we went to the Friday evening affair. Mom and Martha were too tired, so had lunch brought to them at the motel. JIM Merritt hurled a game a couple of years ago when we were at the Cities - and we, like perhaps too many Twins fans weren't overly impressed. Things have changed, however, and Mr. Merritt is now quite a chucker. He set the Bosox down with five hits and put the favorites past the visitors 3-0 before a night crowd of 31,645. Our thinking about Merritt changed a lot in 2 1/2 hours. - ?ACTUALLY, neither team had a great night and there were five errors committed as play was no better than local Little League action at times. The Twins counted two runs in the first (and everyone thought they should have scored a jillion) and another in the seventh, with Tony Olivia and Bob Allison sharing hitting honors with two apiece. Merritt was the biggest ace on the field, however, in that one. "DESIRE" is what makes a second grader who is so knock- kneed he can hardly get one leg past the other on the way to school, able to stretch a two- bagger into a three base hit on the baseball diamond — Deep River Record. OUR seats at the Met were EJ far out along the left field foul line (and they were $3 boxes, yet) that no player from either club was able to hit one in our area all night. Had a lot of fun, though. BEFORE heading back for our own city Saturday afternoon, made one last swing through Southdale so Martha could run around the aisles and mom could look at the pretty things in the stores. THINGS I almost forgot to mention. A Twins-O-Gram during the game gave the Twins batting leaders as Chance .302 and To~ var .280; after everyone laughed, it was changed to Carew; Chance has one hit in about three years. . Seeing signs all over the area about Schmelz Bros., wondered if the firm had ever thought about changing its name. . .Saw a kook on a motorbike with George Washington-like hair; the bike had tailpipes about 6 feet long, sticking straight up in the air behind the rider; and he stared right back at me while exchanging glances at a stop light . .Out at the airport, Martha wasn't too sold on the loud noise of the huge jets taking off constantly; however, she did like watching the "panes" (that's planes to you non-parents). THE Bureau of Internal Revenue says: "Taxes are the price we pay for a civilized nation." Fine. Now when do we get delivery-Sheldon Mail. DAVE Reab, manager of the Algona Theater, has a bee buzzing in his bonnet and wants us to help him get the reaction of you movie fans to an idea of his. He would like to bring in a series of five Cinema Art Movies, show them during the winter months (only one showing each) and in order to get the movies, which are great, would need to sell at least 125 season tickets at $5 each to get the project off the ground. He • showed us press folders on some of them, including "The Organizer" with MarcelloMastroi- anni; "The Oscar" with Stephen Boyd, Elke Sommer, Milton Berle, Eleanor Parker, Joseph Gotten, Jill St. John, Tony Bennett, Edie Adams and Ernest Borgnine; "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" with a fine cast; "The Idol" with Jennifer Jones and Michael Parks; and "He Who Must Die" withMelinaMer- couri; and "The Servant" with Dirk Bogarde, Sarah Miles and Wendy Craig. For anyone who cares for topflight entertainment, we'd say these can't miss. DAVE would like to get an idea about the number of persons interested in these movies. Why not either drop him a card, call the theater or tell an employee the next time your're there and possibly these fine movies might be shown here during coming months. SIZE is often unimportant. Even the most ferocious animals become frightened at times, but did you ever see a scared mosquito?- Lake City Graphic.
