All Scouts and many parents were dressed in costumes. The parents tried to guess the Scouts identities as they paraded in white sheets and their own special paper bag mask which they made at the previous Den meeting. Trip To Europe On Tuesday, Sept. 20, Mrs. Jerry (Freda) Seeger, Warriors Mark RD, left State College in a limousine and drove with others to the JFK Airport in New York to catch a 747 jet to Europe. Her husband, Jerry, a Master Sgt. with the 112 Air National Guard of State College left Aug. 10 and returned Oct. 5. He was on a training exercise in Denmark and Italy, but was given time off to see the sights. Jerry met Freda at the Rome airport in Italy. They toured the city for two days. The saw the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican, St. Peters Vasilica, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and. many other sights. From Rome they went to Florence for a day, and from there to Ferraca and Venice. By Sept. 26 they had arrived in Salzburg, Austria. They toured Bergestgarden in Germany where Adolf Hitler had his summer retreat. They had to take a bus on a "one-way" lane up to the Eagle's Nest. Their next stop was in Zurich, Switzerland. In both Austria and Switzerland, they enjoyed the beautiful Alps. From Switzerland, they returned to Rome. Freda said she saw many things and had a wonderful time. There were six wives and one husband who joined their mates in Rome. The group remained together during their travels through Italy. Only three couples went on to Switzerland. Freda said the water in Europe tasted very bad so they drank mineral water. She saw only three women wearing shorts and no halters. The only place she saw slacks on women was in Italy. - ,. . "The traffic is so fast it is scary" Freda said. "People ride mopeds, bicycles and motor-scooters and need no license." They saw few accidents but Freda did not know why they didn't see more! They drive at 50 mph in the middle of the city and there are no white lines painted on the streets. Women rode as many cycles as the men, and many were dressed for work. In Italy they saw more beggars than any other area. Some were women with babies tied to their backs, and some beggers with legs missing sat along the streets. Freda enjoys crystal, and before she arrived Jerry bought her a beautiful crystal bird in Denmark. She found another bird, a bell, and a pair of 18 carat earrings in Italy. In Germany she bought a Hummel figurine, Christmas decorations and crystal candle holders. Switzerland was the most expensive country. Freda noted. In Germandy, the cows are highly decorated with flowers when they bring them back from their summer grazing in the mountains. The fruit is large in Germany, and Freda particularly mentioned the pears, apples and grapes. Shoppers are not allowed to handle any of the fruit: They must point out choices to the clerks. Ice cream is very rich, and ice cubes are very hard to get in a restaurant. . Houses and barns are given excellent care. The barns look like the houses, with flower boxes located everywhere around the buildings. There are few radios and TVs. Freda saw only two TVs. The shops in Germany open early in the morning and close in the afternoon. At 5 p.m. they open again. People eat their supper at 8 p.m. Raw chicken is never placed in the store's display cabinets. It is always cooked and ready to be eaten. "It was a wonderful trip," Freda said. She enjoyed it immensely. She added, but this reporter could tell by the sound of her voice that she was glad to be back home again. At 11:30 a.m. on Sept. 30 Freda said eoodbye to Jerrv and boarded the plane for New York. When she arrived it was 3:30 p.m. (our time). What appeared like four hours was really eight. It took her several days to rest up from the "jet lag" feeling. SHE'LL BE SIX - Renee Yvonne Patterson, daughter of Dan and Mary Patterson, of Tyrone, will be six year's old tomorrow. Jon, her brother, will help her celebrate. Grandparents are Yvonne and Marlin Patterson, 601 W. 14th St.; Ida Wolfe, Pennsylvania avenue; and Blaine Wolfe, Cottage street. Her great grandmother is Dora P. Rush, of London, England.
