v;t • \ §-Alfleftfl (Id.) Uppaf B« Motnftl "thufufay, August If, 194! » •«• ' J%f ' f I/* ** ram Nice Place To visit ,, By fislhef Sigsbae Side trips ranging from th Passion flay at Oberammerga to. a"* boat tfip in the sewers o Paris,- were highlights of an Af gorta girl's year and a half i Europe. She is Sheila Sullivan daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wad Sullivan, who recently completei a tour,of duty as program djrec tor for special services of th United States'" Army at KarlsrUd Germany. "It's Wonderful to be home", said Sheila,- who arrived here Ifist ,week, "but I had a grand time and I loved my job." Th most memorable of her sldi trips' during her stay was th summer, Olympics in Rome las year. Sheila had always wanted to • go to the' Olympics, especiallj the'Swimming events. In fact, i Was ,the main thing that prompt- ed'her to apply for the program director's job. ( " ' i" through 7 ,' military channe'ls she'was able to'get the choicest of" seatsj'for.the events, rigty down w 'among,-the celebrities Some.'of « f them.,were Zoe Any Olson,- swinimlng champ, who sat on one side of them, ana Rev. Bob Richards, track star on the other. Sheila, because oJ her proximity to the stars, was on television a lot during the Olympics. Only a month and a half ago, the • Algorta girl was in Berlin; When she arrived in the States, she Was rather surprised to find most people upset about the Berlin situation because it didn't seem to bother the Germans • very much.' The trip to Berlin was in a sealed military train because much of it was through east ( German' territory. Thejf Were not allowed to leave > the train during the 24-hour/ {rip. Because of l^er job/ permission to go to East Berlin was'not hard to obtain. West-Berlin is the.mosi modern' and beautiful city she visited, said Sheila. It's hard to 4 be- lieVe that World War II left it a shambles. East Berlin is in marked contrast. You see almost no cars and overgrown lawns and rubble mar the once beauti- ful'buildings. The Berlin-Hilton is a beautiful hotel,-according'to Sheila. It was on an elevator there thai she saw.'Jayne Mansfield who was there for a film festival. Many of Sheila's trips might not have been possible except for the youth hostels. Young persons touring. Europe can stay in them for about 25c a night, Knd in some cases obtain meals. Some of them are a little primi- 1 tive, but they are clean and well- supervised. . In Bergen, Norway, Sheila had just gone to bed in a youth hostel when two American girls came in. Sheila told them she was from Iowa. They asked her where in Iowa and when Sheila told them, they said, ' "Do you mean somebody else is from Al-i gona? Do you know Mollie Sul- livlan?" Mollie. is Sheila's only sister, and the girls turned out to be very good friends of her's at college. Youth hostels are a pet subject for her soap-box orations, ac- watch the spectators, many 01 who were men dragged there by their wives. , Paris is a paradise for antique collectors, and Sheila has joined their ranks. She bought somt, things, as she did on alt her travels, but "just looking" was also most, rewarding. She visited the famous night spot, 'the Lido, and although she thought the place was over-rated, it was there that she saw Princess Margaret's erstwhile beau, Peter Towrtsend and his. wife, A few years ago, Sheila's uncle, an Emmetsburg ' newspaper editor, caught Peter when he was traveling incognito >in Iowa and interviewed him. She Wanted to bring this up when she saw him in Paris, but she didn't quite have the nerve. Because of her interest in the French .Revolution, Sheila has always been intrigued by the sewers of Paris. They are open to visitors one day a week some times during the year and Sheila wa$ there at the right time. You travel in boats, > pulled by men along the sides. The hiding places of the revolutionists are pointed out, and while the odor isn't exactly Chanel-Number 5, some places above ground smell worse. Sheila's interest in skiing, 'anned by some weekends in the Austrian Alps, may very well be ;he springboard to her next job She hopes to find a position as recreational director at a resor: n Squaw Valley for next winter. Meanwhile, she is enjoying re- axing in Algona.' - ' Tom LickteigV. Music chairman; Mrs, Lawrence Baylor, trees. 80 Yeats Young - - . A family picnic wM ,held at the city,'park Aug. 6 honoring Mrs. Ruth Sparks who was.80 years old Aug. 11.

She thinks we should have more of them in the United States. They are on the east and the west coasts, but nowhere in between. Sheila advocates that if some of the European youth with mistaken ideas about the United States could travel here at a price within their means, it would be a big step forward in world friendship. Sheila's traveling wings were clipped a bit several months ago by a car accident. She and two German girl friends were on a trip in Sheila's new Renault. She swerved to avoid a rabbit, the car was demolished, and the three women ended up in a hospital. Fortunately, all recovered. "Paris is Paris, and like no other place in the world", said Sheila. She'd been there on a previous European trip and was able to re-visit it for a week just before sailing home. Through secret, and rather devious methods, she managed to attend a Dior fashion showing. The clothes were beautiful, but too advanced and expensive for a mid-west American, but the salon was lovely and it was interesting to 4-H Delegates Report On State Camp At Madrid James Erpelding, Bode, ana ancy Chambers, Corwith, at- ended a recent 4-H conservation amp and isued the following eport: We attended State 4-H Conser- ation Camp at Madrid from uly 31 to August 4.'
