A city crew during the past week has been completing the new sew- er in the Veterans addition. Much difficulty was encountered near the end of the job when the crew ran into quicksand which greatly im-peded-fts completion. There is no lack of apples this season.

All one needs for those pies are the sugar, shortening and mother. What you overhear is more inter esting than what you hear. The Miner staff highly entertained (and away from their work) recently. The lovers four put on a daylight exhibition of billing and cooing right in front of the The Miner office sitting in a car and entirely oblivious of the fact that the world was still going on and that The Miner had to meet its pub lication deadline. WM Give Reddy Kilowatt A VOICE (Continued from first, page) demonstrated Wednesday afternoon at the Auditorium, where the new network "Queen for a Day" show was broadcast before thousands of screaming women.i The broadcast itself did not start until 1:30 p.

but the line of women stretched farther and farther around the Auditorium from 10 a. m. on. By 12:30 p. when a "warmup" show began, women packed the main arena, particularly in front of the stagl and around the food show exhibits.

Jack Bailey, the smooth talking master of ceremonies of show; PearsbnJhe announcer, ana other personnel of th show ent down into the audience to choose the four contestants. This is when the fun begins. Women clutched at Bailey's lapels and shouted into his ears. The pre-f essed idea is to pick the jwomen who have the best reasons for wanting to be, queen for a day, but actually Bailey was listening carefully to choose those who would do well with a microphone and would not cause one of the dreadful silences which are the bane of radio. Morgan, the producers, followed Bailey, studying the women closely for photogenic possibilities and for diction.

One woman wanted to be queen because 15 persons live in her home and -shTwanted to give "presents to my landlord." Another wanted to go to Washington to sponsor an anti-lynching law. These were eliminated The final selections were an Australian war bride who wanted to send Christmas recording to her relatives; a young woman who said her boy friend would speed up their wedding if she was selected queen; another young woman who wanted to go through her marriage ceremony again with a wedding gown, flowers and trimmings, and Mrs. Betty Levandowski, 23, of Milwaukee, who said she wanted "an X-ray of my husband's back." A board of judges, also composed of Milwaukee women, was selected for the broadcast staff, and they chose Mrs. Levandowski, as "queen for a day" when she explained that her husband injured his back in the service and used it as an excuse when she wanted to go dancing. What lured all these women to the show were the prizes showered on the queen.

She won a wash- ins machine, a string of pearls, a suit, shoes, a year's supply of ny Ions, perfume, roses, a. sport's jack et, a movie camera, a lighter, a combination radio, a pressure cooker a fur coat, assorted pots and pans. Soon after the broadcast the queen started on a mad whirl about town, including a luncheon, a new hairdo, a hotel suite to rest in, dinner at a Milwaukee restaurant, dancing and a supper at a hotel. In addition, the queen will receive 200 gallons of gasoline, a boat trip, and an air lme trio to Washington, D. for a week end and stay in a hotel with her husband.

Holy Gee! Wish we could get that show in Hurley just once so one of our "queens" could become "Queen for a Day." A consoling thought to the Hut-! ley housewives is that most of the husbands think they are queens not just for a day, not just for a year, but forever! Because hindsight is great stuff we moved into January 1947 and looked around a bit. We were a-mazed that Hurley had no ice rinks for its youngsters the reason offered that the snow and cold had come arid the preliminary work necessary for ice rings had not been done in November. So moving back into November, we ask, "How about some ice rinks for Hurley kids?" And while we are How's about il" when are we going lo erect a Hurley sign down where fifth avenue meets highway 51 on the north side of 1 our city fair. Natives returning lo Hurler at night from out west on US 2 invariably miss Fifth avenue now no sign and dark. The "tricks or treat" cut stuff really developed into an organized racket this year.

Bands upon bands of juveniles pounded residential doors and chanted "tricks or treats money or eats" (and implied "or The good of our community dished out nobly, getting into the spirit of. the game. Most vnunssters carried paper bags to carry the "booty." One. kid had aj gunny sack and got it half filled to say nothing about a cool $1.27 he picked up to boot But one Montreal woman had her own little fun.
