M, 1941 PAGE et Besiotees - . •-. - .We Had 4 Frustrating Day Humboldt Republican — We went to the fgotboll game between Minnesota and lowo at Iowa City Saturday. It was a funny day, a disappointing day, a frustrating day/ and the frustration did not all come front the score of the gome which Iowa lost. t We started out Ot 7 a.m. in order to arrive fairly early so we • cot^d find" a place to park ,„ that didn't require an hours walk to the sfodium. With such an early* start there was onfy time for a cup of coffee a home, thus breakfast became a subject of conversation very quickly ofter the start. **- So we drove and we drove. It was a beautiful morning- and the fraffk was no) too bad at fljst. We made good time until we joined the thousands of cars on Highway 3Q. And we rffuit remark that we paid in bumps and jars and slower speeds for the row between Ames, Boone and other towns and the highway commission, who wanted to reroute 30. The commission, bless their little hearts, have allowed (got portion of Highway 30 that the argument was all about, to go to the dogs. It is rough a/id narrow and dangerous. But we had to drive it, for hunger had decided thai we must b/cakfasf at the Pancake House at Marshall- fown. ' So we arrived at the Pancake House, sure of quick service and small loss, of tigie. But to no avail. Tobies were empty but we were not allowed to use one until it was reset with all Jhe junk they put on tables in restaurants. So We waited, and we waited, and .waited some more, and time was a wastin. Finally, finally, vie were allowed a table. Then came more ^biting. Couples and foursomes that arrived (djhg after we did were served qn,d on their wtay. We sat. After long last came a waitress, V^hp took our order. V/e made it simple so it could be quick. But it wasn't. More delay, until we could \ust see all those parking places being filled long before we arrived. * When our orders -come they'were mixed up, not what we had ordered, but we ate hur- uedly and made no protests. We didn't dare, for if we had wanted what we' Ordered we could possibly have been there yet. .' * At last we were on our way again. We failed along at fair speed, and the traffic got more dense by the. minute. Finally came the accident we always see ori the way to a foot- boll game (and which we always give thanks we have so -far avoided). One car had to slow down suddenly, the car behind was too close olid so rammed into the back of the first car. Another'car following too closely-rammed into the back of the second car. Three cars put out of commission. Passengers injured, and the holiday spoiled for three car loads of people who wanted nothing but an entertaining football game to watch. On we drove, in ever thickening traffic, along that winding ar.jf fwijtrinfj highway 212, until we finally joined the big mob on highway 6 ot Marengo. From there to Iowa City it was start and stop, I'm sure our stopping'and staffing was governed by the traffic light ot;lowa City. Finally we made it, to the parking 10? we like to use, and found a spat to {lark.' Then to the football game, where frustration, and errors abounded; and where state pride was humbled by a fair but not unbeatable Minnesota team who seemed to carry mare than their share of rabbits feet. But the day was not ended yet, nor our frustration to get its last innings. Lloyd's has* always been a good place for the evening meal on the way home, but this time the/carload decided (mostly 'the women) that we should drive into Marshalltown and dine at Stones, that famous eating place down under the viaduct that Duncan Hines so recommended. (The restaurant, not the viaduct.) So, after much inquiry, we found Stones, and it was under the viaduct; and there began another waif "that stretched info frustrations path again. Once more, as during our morning wait for breakfast, _ other couples, foursomes and sixsomes, came, ' were waited On ,pnd Departed, before 'we were waited on.

At long last (we must use that expression many times in this .narrative) we were served. The food was good but the ' long frustrating wait had served to diminish our enjoyment and even manna from Heaver) would have tasted bad. : So we left Stones (under the viaduct) and journeyed back to highway 30 and westward ho. (The waitress not only did NOT receive a tip, the whole .restaurant became off limits for us from now on.) We made it safely home, offered a prayer of thanksgiving for no bodily harm, and then rushed the icebox for food. It tasted better than the so-called ambrosia that Duncan Hines sings so lyrically about af Stones. It was an interesting trip. One that we can look back on with some measure of amusement, but we suspect mat the full measure of amusement will:not c 'bloom until several years have passed x when "dcv you remember that trip to the Iowa-Minnesota football game" is only a conversation piece. ••• '• : • * *•••••<..': : Athletic.

In corabinatipn, one year ---- ta.OO No CJTY AND COUNTY NEWSPAPER APV6RTI8JNG RATES ON REQUEST MORE FOOD FOR LESS Sheldon Mail — In all the talk, discussions and arguments about the "farm problem", one significant fact has not been presented adequately to the public, and that is the highly significant one that we are now actually getting more food for our money than we have before. In 1947-49, for example, the average citizen paid out 26%. of his spendable income for food. In 1960 this average went down to 20 r /fc. This, it is pointed out, is the same as saying that American farmers have through increased efficiency of production, given the average American a six-percent raise in wages between 1950 and 1960. This,, in turn, enables us to buy many more other, goods and services. The farming industry, because it is made up so greatly of comparatively small, individual operations, has difficulty in presenting its side of the economic stuation to the general public* particularly the residents of the larger cities who have no contact at all with the farmers. It Is easy for such people to blame any price squeeze they may find themselves in on a scapegoat such as food prices. Actually,, most individuals who find themseve? in a price squeeze in this day and age are probably there because of the cost of goods which a generation ago were considered pure luxuries. « * * Hope all those pheasant hunters who got tagged in the state patrol radar check recently don't hold it against our fair city ; , . the.rad.qr check was well timed for the traffic influx but honest, we citizens dicjn't have a thing to do with it. * * * Note where Senator Margaret Chase appeals to Mrs. Nina Khrushchev to have a heart- to-heart talk with her hubby about atomic bombs and such . . . Nina better be careful . . . the last one who talked up out of turn was Molotov and *ie hasn't been heard of recently. .» » « gt plane is down where this And we are in ihe difficult po- *' iition of trying to figure hovir the' iRuaa^ns! accept this whole- busi-'- jiess.
