IOWA JIVING **C • DES MOINES SUNDAY REGISTER • OCTOBER 16,1977 /15C Slippery money flies to honeysuckle hedge When a $5 bill blows out of your hand in a stiff wind and disappears, you just about have to give it up for . lost. Or do you? ; Charlie Gebhard tells us there's a •simple way to trace that money before somebody else finds it — a way so obvious most of us probably never would have thought of it Charlie's "Nowadaze" column in the Waverly Democrat told of the experience a friend of his from Cascade candidates riding in parades are seated in the back seats of convertibles. But what do you do when you have 28 candidates for queen of a marching band jamboree, as was held recently in Clarlnda, where 48 marching bands came to town. "Have you ever tried to arrange for Hawkeye hoorahs! 28 convertibles?," it was asked in the Clarinda Herald-Journal's "Off The Square" column. "It gets harder every year, so this year you will see the girls riding in golf carts." — James Ney Don't miss Hawkeye hoorahs! every Saturday and Sunday in your Des Motnei Register.

Soon the boy was back, in tears, telling of the gust of wind that had blown the bill from his hand. "He feared, of course, that he'd be accused of taking the money," Charlie said. "But my friend Jerry had confidence in the boy and in his ability to find the money. He quickly took a scissors, cut a piece of wrapping paper exactly the size of a bill, walked with the boy to the spot where he said the wind had blown the five-spot away, and then let his 'duplicate' bill sail away with the wind. "Anxiously they followed it across the street and across a lawn to a honeysuckle hedge. The imitation bill was there, wedged against a bush." And — sure enough — so was the real $5 bill. "Nice piece of detective work, I'd say," wrote Charlie. We'd have to agree. 'Secret door' Now it can be told An Iowa City attorney, his wife and their 13-year-old son claim they found "The Secret Door to King Tut's Tomb" in a visit to Chicago's Field Museum last summer. "It was the best-kept secret in Chicago-, while the King Tut Exhibit was there," he said. The lowans arrived at 6 a.m. one day to take their place in line and wait to get in to see the Tut treasures. After waiting at the south entrance for four hours, they had worked their way to the vestibule, only three feet from the Tut admission windew — when they were told there'd be no more admissions to the exhibit that day. The attorney demanded and received an audience with the museum director, and got no satisfaction there, he said. "Look, we put 20,000 people a day through here," he was told. They toured the rest of museum, but were still curious about how they could come back the next day, with assurance that they wouldn't be wasting their time and miss seeing the exhibit. Leaving through the west door, the Iowa City family asked a doorman, "Is there any way we can be sure of getting in tomorrow?" The happenstance question provided the "key" to King Tut's Tomb. "Sure," the man replied. "Just come to this (west) door about 8:30 a.m. If you'd been here this morning, you could have gotten right in." Amazed, they asked how that could be? They'd been told to come to either the north or south doors — the main entrances, where everybody else lined up. As it turned out, the "best-kept secret in Chicago last summer" was theirs for the asking. "The special tour buses unload their passengers at about 8:30 at this door, and the tour bus passengers have priority," they were told. The next day, there they were, strolling up just as the tour buses deposited their passengers. "It turned out to be a quick way to get inside where you could get your King Tut exhibit ticket, and then get into the exhibit without a very long wait," said the Iowa City man. They got in within 2Vi hours, saw the exhibit, and still had time to catch a Chicago Cubs game in the afternoon. It never hurts to ask — and oow that the exhibit has departed from Chicago, the story can finally be told about how the lowans outfoxed the "city slickers " It's long Deeo a tradition tiuti •.97 Corning 3-pc. casserole set works as well in your microwave as it does in your oven.
