This time he stayed spven months. * * * THE PROJECT INCLUDED WHAT they call the, "Dewline" which is our government's early distance warning system. In case of enemy attack, bases such as Omaha can be alerted in a matter of minutes. ' * * * "IT REALLY GETS COLD UP THERE", said Art. To prove his point, he said Jayne Mansfield was there with the Bob Hope Christmas Show and it was storming so bad that Art didn't care to walk the two or three blocks to see the performance ! However, he did meet Jayne the next day in the P.X. "I eye-balld her some", admitted Art,, but when he was asked if Miss Mansfield had a pretty face, he replied, "Golly, I didn't notice !" LATER. ART SAW A TRAILER parked by the side of a road. Quite a large commotion was going on with an army officer supervising some men as they dug and sifted snow. It turned out that the cab in which Jayne had been riding had hit a bump, the door was thrown open and Jayne had lost an earring. The project was the search for it. iji sK * ART WAS EMPLOYED BY PETER KIEWIT and Sons, Northenr, out of Omaha. He worked on the base's new construction, rehabilitation of former construction and repairs. He was a foreman He spent six months there three years ago, was back in Iowa for 11 months ana then signed on for seven more months. FACILITIES FOR THE CIVILIAN construction workers are entirely separate from the army and air force personnel based there. It a(an entirely male world for all groups as no wives or families are allowed on the base and except for special entertainment groups, such as the Christmas Show, there are no tourists. When the base was begun m 1951, the native Eskimos were moved 60 miles north. THERE WAS AMPLE ENTERTAINMENT for the construction workers Art said. There were good late movies, recreation rooms, a ZS 'their own newspaper and radio and TV. Religious services for all ma or faiths were held regularly and were well-attended But he added/after a guy works hard ten hours a day, seven days a week, what to do with your leisure is not^much^of a problem. THE RADIO AND WEATHER STATION AT Thule has KOLD for call letters. It Is aptly named. Weather is reported in phases. When it is phai one, it is comparatively mild. At phase two warning it is conv r Isorv to walk in couples to keep track of each other. When phase ?h le c y omes oT-wSout 1 Everybody stays put ^P«<^ »»»"*«* from the barracks to mess hall and the men crawl along them because they can't see a thing in the over 60 miles an hour wind. 4 ijt V ' J,' '''"'-',. WHEN ART ARRIVED IN GREENLAND in June it was daylight 24 hours a day. There were quite a few flowers - lots of poppies, arc" home. "If the world is going to dogs, it's because everybody a bone to pick". the has James Devines Of Algona Are Wed 50 Years Mr. and Mrs. James F. Devine, Algona, observed their fiftieth wedding anniversary Wednesday, Feb. 14. They were married Feb. 14, 1912 in St. Cecelia's Catholic church here. Mrs. Devine was born in Illinois and came here at the age of nine. Mr. Devine was born at Livermore. They farmed in this area until 1953 when they retired and moved to Algona to live. Their children include Charles, Algona, Ray, LuVerne, Betty (Mrs. Wilbur Daley), St. Benedict, Maxine (Mrs. Francis McNally), Em- —-,,really . UD up was about being dark ajl annum me i-iu^n. ««••-•• ••--— "*,",. January, the bad weather was just beginning and It there in February and March. tji >H # SAFETY, BOTH DRIVING AND in construction work, is a big factor at Thule. Art was one of the foremen honored for a million man hour's work without an accident. The driving speed limit was.20 miles an hours and very few violated the restriction. If they did hey were forced to lay off from work for a day for every so many miles above the limit. Their pay was docked accordingly. BOARD AND ROOM COSTS WERE PAID by the company and the food was excellent, according to Art. The cooks were mostly Danish_and the pastries were out of this world. There was steak every Saturday night They kept piling/it on your plate until you yelled for.them to stop. Guys could have three or four T-bones if they thought they could eat them. * * * ART DOESN'T PLAN TO GO BACK to Greenland. The construction company for which he worked has completed the contracts there and have moved home all their equipment. "Besides", Art said, my wife, Frances w'odd murder me if I did. She doesn't like the long separations. Neither do I, but the pay is good and you send home almost all of it. Up there, there's no place to spend it !"^ THE COLUMN OF TWO WEEKS AGO, about the crazy mixed-up Egel-Kildow wedding certainly got a lot of mileage. It was picked up frSm the Fort Dodge Messenger by the Associated Press and sent coast-to-coast. I was phoned telling me it was picked as one of the four top news stories of the day along with Powers and a couple -tit poltical stories ! It was on at least two TV newscasts but, naturally I missed them and I know it was carried in papers in Iowa, Illinois[ a "° ^ an . sa ^ If anv of my readers saw it any place else 1 would love to hear about t My sympathies were with the couple at the time but their wedding will1 certaTnly be remembered long after the smooth-running type are forgotten. * * * THIS WEEK'S RECIPE is for an unusual pecan pie.
