Kraus feels the same reverence for his work. When it is gone, he thinks of it not as being destroyed, but retrieved, nature as his partner, not enemy. "You know you're just borrowing this from her for a few hours or days," he said. Kraus climbed into a bulldozer and took the Madonna down himself because "I thought I'd be more humane." He limits major castle construction to a couple of times a year, usually a commissioned work at Christinas and the annual Labor Day invitational he stages on a San Diego beach as a gift to his hometown. Preparations for the Labor Day extravaganza usually begins months earlier, with negotiations for beach permits, arrangements for liability insurance and extensive historical research. Kraus is thinking about doing the Vatican this year. Construction is no simple matter of CA.SEUEX-OWMR SFEOA1IZING IN CUMMM ENGMES MINOR « MAJOR REPAIR FAIR .

Santa Fe Hours: Mon.-Sat. 10-5 styrofoam-cup turrets and moats etched with an index finger. His sun-burnished hands excitedly carving the air, Kraus spent 20 minutes explaining how he starts with a volcano of sand and fills it with 100,000 gallons of seawater from irrigation pumps, then compresses the mixture into a mound. Detail work is done with masonry tools, trowels, small shovels and kitchen knives Kraus has fashioned into chisels. A plastic ice-cream scoop is a favorite tool, ideal for onion domes. Delegating tasks for the Labor Day project, Kraus becomes something of a despot, king of his sand hill. He plans where each turret and staircase and wall will go, insisting on historical accuracy. He asks those working with him "to confine their thought process to the project, to sculpting and the historical significance" and he stomps his size 9% foot on construction that doesn't meet his standards. There are lessons to be learned from sand castles, Kraus said. "If we rid our consciousness of the idea that everything lasts forever, we come to grips with the philosophy that something that begins and ends in a day is perhaps a way to measure life." Fear of spys ends cereal plant tours BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (AP) Kellogg Co. will end its 80-year-old tradition of plant tours, which has allowed millions of people to witness the birth of a corn flake, for fear some visitors might steal the company's new cereal-making technology. The company will end the tours April 11 following a $500 million plant modernization, Vice Chairman Robert L. Nichols said Tuesday. An estimated 6.5 million people have watched the making of Kellogg's Corn Flakes and other cereals since the company began the tours in 1906. Last year, the cereal maker was host to 260,000 people, the company said. Corporate spies have been among the visitors on at least two occasions, said Kellogg spokesman Joseph M. Stewart. The company tried to scrap the tours in 1981, but dropped the idea after a public outcry. Bonnie Telder, head of the Greater Battle Creek-Calhoun County Visitor & Convention Bureau, said she was surprised by the move. "That has been our main destination" for tourists, she said. "It will affect our individual market." Salina YMGA Stingray Swim Team You are invited to attend the U.S.S.

(AP) - A little known relic of World War II stands desolate and deteriorating amid brush and rubble a short distance from Interstate 35 at the north edgeofOwatonna. The two-story frame structure was once the mess hall for German prisoners of war who occupied POW Branch No. 5 and worked in various forms of food production during the waning years of the war. The mess hall is the only building remaining. One large barracks burned to the ground in 1945. Tents housed many prisoners. Other buildings have simply caved in and are overgrown by weeds. The grounds had been leased from the Cashman Estate. Few residents of Owatonna today even know that the camp ever existed. Only a handful can recall any contact with the camp or the occupants. The Owatonna branch camp, which opened in April 1944, was one of a dozen in Minnesota. It held anywhere from 57 to 273 German prisoners, depending on the time of year. Most of the captives were reassigned in winter when farm and food canning work was slow. Base camp for the 1,500 German prisoners who occupied the various Minnesota camps was in Algona, Iowa, where most prisoners spent the winter months. The War Department and War Manpower Commission began setting up the POW camps in agricultural areas to relieve the crush of the demand for foodstuffs amid a manpower shortage with millions of men serving in the armed forces. Only about 12 American soldiers were stationed at the Owatonna camp to administer and guard it. Security was minimal because the Germans realized they had no place to go if they did escape. They worked in farm fields and at the Owatonna Canning Co. unguarded and under supervision of civilians. Karl Becker, now a retired factory worker living in Immenhausen, West Germany, recalled his days as a POW during a 1985 interview with the Owatonna People's Press. Becker, captured by the British during the Africa campaign in 1943, was transferred to American custody and found himself at a large internment camp in Concordia, Kan. The Concordia camp was used as a kind of clearinghouse for new prisoners, who were then transferred to other camps. Becker ended up in Owatonna. The only "bad incident" of his POW experience occurred in Kansas. The camp had two fences and German prisoners were playing soccer when the ball became wedged under the first fence. When one man went to retrieve it, he was shot to death by a guard. He said that one experience has not soured him on the United States or its people.
