In fact the first leg of the trip from St. Joe, Iowa, to St. Joe, Missouri, took over eight hours when it should be done in about five. We arrived in Flagstaff, Arizona, on Jan. 3, about three weeks after the big storm. We soon realized that those poor people in northern Arizona did have serious trouble. They lost much livestock. There is no end to true stories about that big snow storm. We have had some blizzard conditions here in recent years — but never have we had anything like seven feet of snow on the level. We then drove south from Flagstaff towards Phoenix. It is rather hard to realize that one can drive from such wintry conditions into summer-like conditions in two to three hours. We arrived at the home of our son Mike and his family and were happy to have been able to stay with them for nearly three weeks. We especially enjoyed renewing our acquaintance with Sue and David, and to enjoy the weekend trips. Mike is Customer Services Engineer for IBM Corporation in Phoenix. We enjoyed our 32nd wedding anniversary at Trader Vic's Polynesian Restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona. The headwaiter presented the ladies with corsages and ended the evening dinner with a fine anniversary cake (compliments of the house). Some of the interesting things and places we visited along the way were: Bella Vista Village in Arkansas and Sun Valley at Hoi- brook, Arizona. These are both retirement settlements. I believe the most interesting development we saw was at Lake Havasu City, Arizona, about 20 miles south of Needles, California, on the Colorado River above Parker Dam. This is an entirely new city which began in 19 64 with only nine permanent residents. Today it is a thriving city of four thousand people>nd growing by leaps and bounds with two new large corporations locating new factories at the present time. They predict that in less than ten years from now there will be 60,000 residents. It is an engineered city with all zoning done before the first lot was sold. We also enjoyed the visit to Sun City - the retirement city just west of Phoenix. It was a cotton field seven years ago and now a city of nine thousand. Del Webb Corporation has really hit on an idea which is fine for retired people who wish to withdraw from the younger families. As of this date I am not quite ready to withdraw that far. One of the things that seems so strange is to be able to be out in the open and have picnics and out-of-doors activities. Here in Iowa as soon as it warms enough in early summer to be able to enjoy the outdoors, the bugs and insects take over to ruin it for us. There we did see probably a half- dozen flies but no mosquitoes. In San Antonio we visited the Alamo and saw the workmen working feverishly trying to get ready for the Hemis Fair which is to open in April. Those people have their hands full to get that job done. We visited in the Rio Grande valley of McAllen, Harlington and Ft. Isabel. Fruit and vegetables are plentiful. But some of those farmers who were unlucky enough to be in the path of the hurricane last September were hurt badly. Port Isabel seemed to be hurt badly and so many of the ruins seemed to be abandoned at least for the time being. We enjoyed the docking of the charter fishing boat, Warsaw, which came in with a load of fishermen and women. There were 20 people on the boat who brought in a total of about 1500 pounds of Red Snapper. But there was one young man on that trip who said he nearly passed out from being seasick. One thing that was a must on our trip this time was a visit to the Astrodome in Houston. For the mothers who might be having trouble keeping youngsters at home - that is one big play pen! It is worth a dollar just to take a guided tour through this place. The tour takes about one and a half hours and you walk about two miles on the trip. One hears many stories about the boasting that Texans do. But this is a manmade marvel which is for real and worth seeing. In Dallas we visited the spot where President Kennedy was shot. After the Warren Report and all other reports and conflicting ideas that have come up since that terrible tiling hap- State Officer Y.F.W. Inspects Plant Here WARREN ALLBAUGH Warren K. Allbaugh, adjutant and state quartermaster of the Iowa Veterans of Foreign Wars, Des Moines, was a visitor in Algona last Thursday. In addition to visiting with local V.F.W. members he inspected the plant of the Upper Des Moines Publishing Co., which for the past six months has been preparing and printing the monthly "Iowa Voice of the V.F.W." The publication, an eight-page tabloid with a multitude of pictures, goes to some 26,000 members of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, most in Iowa, but including others in every state in the union and points overseas. pened it gives one something to wonder about. The Cowboy Hall of Fame in Oklahoma City is a wonderful display of cowboy and Indian lore - worth seeing. The Agricultural Hall of Fame in Boner Springs, Kansas, is very interesting and it it is ever completed will compare with most any large display of frontier farming. We had an enjoyable trip—we saw many things which give one something to think about. It is good to be home and to reevaluate ones own position and to thank the Almighty for a fine family, a good home, a good job, many friends at home and elsewhere. I wish that everyone who reads this could take a trip like this and learn to appreciate what we have here at home, and realize that many people do not have it made or have it as good.
