County 4-H Group To Chicago Algono (la.) Upper Des Moines-7 Tuesday, Dee. 5, 1967 Nine Kossuth county 4-IPers and their chaperones left for Chicago Nov. 23 for the three-day award trip. They were Judy Berger, Bonita Kiilsholm and Marilyn Roethler, all of Algona; John Kiley, Burt; Merlyn Metzger, Whittemore; Paula Thilges, Bode; Dick Lynch, Fenton; Carmen Montag, West Bend; Phil Meyer, Fenton; and Mr. and Mrs. Clair Reding, Ottosen. The group traveled by bus from Mason City and arrived late Thursday night in Chicago where they stayed at the Pick-Congress Hotel. Tours started early Friday. First stop was the Merchandise Mart. The Chicago Board of Trade is the world's largest grain exchange. In the market place 1,402 members buy and sell. The group found the security at the Federal Reserve Bank to be tight. The bank deals with banks belonging to the Federal Reserve system rather than the public. The tour included the coinage, sorting and checking departments. It can be quite exciting to see a two foot stack of money valued at $1,065,000. On the agenda for the afternoon was the Field Museum of Natural History. Friday evening, the group attended Shubert Theatre where they attended the performance of "Sweet Charity." The play starred Chita Rivers. Several members, of the party found the refreshments a bit higher than at our local theatres. The group traveled to the Prudential Building, which is 41 stories above the ground. Observers travel to the observation deck in one of the fastest elevators in the world - 1400 feet per minute. From the deck one can look out over Lake Michigan and the night lights of Chicago streets as far as one can see. Saturday morning was taken up with a tour of Chicago.
