SPOTLIGHT STORYTELLING CONTEST WINNER: Kris Meyer won a tour of Sweden with "Lessons from the Immigrants", a storytelling contest sponsored by The Folklife Institute of Central Kansas and Anderson Scandinavian Tours, both of Lindsborg, "Little Sweden, U.S.A." Kris Meyer of Forest City, Iowa divides her time between working as an E.M.T. and a part- time elementary school teacher for gifted and talented. She has told stories for church and educational groups. Meyer sent a couple of stories that are told among members of her family to the Folklife Institute of Central Kansas to enter in a story telling contest. The contest, "Lessons from the Immigrants" required that the stories be true, and that they be about Swedes in America or Swedish-Americans. Meyer sent several stories about her Swedish side of the family. The great-great-grandfather on her mother's side was named Gustav Paulson. She told about his immigration to the United States, tree clearing in Wisconsin, several of his friends and about the eight daughters who could "break a horse, plow a field or rake it, drive a binder and cut grain, pick rock, load them on a stone boat, harness a horse and hitch one to a piece of farm machinery, feed cattle, clean barns and even haul and spread manure on a field — all of whom married and became wonderful cooks, homemakers, wives, and mothers." The Folklife Institute received submissions for the "Lessons from the Immigrants" contest from eight states. The stories told of new residents who worked as housekeepers, stone cutters, farmers, railroad labor: of Swedes with royal blood, of learning German and thinking that it was English, of family trials, overcome with perseverance and humor. chimney service and stove store Steve Miles & Jim Kerby The "Lessons from the Immigrants" contest is the outgrowth of several other projects that the Folklife Institute has been involved in. "We (Swedish-Americans) have a unique perspective towards life which appears in our stories. They need to be collected and better understood." said Mark Esping, director. "It seemed sort of apropos that the adventures of an immigrant should earn one of their offspring a trip to the old country. Something done a hundred years ago would buy a 14-day vacation in the country of origin." Anderson Scandinavian Tours sponsored the contest by contributing the first prize, a ticket for one of their Heritage Tours. The Folklife Institute will eventually publish these stories and hopes to hold other story competitions in the future.

Vander Yacht, ALL HEADACHES HAVE A CAUSE Q My headaches are getting worse. They're coming more often and lasting longer. My husband says that if this keeps up, I'll be one continuous headache. He's very sweet and helpful when I'm staggered with a headache, but I know he's tired of my headaches, too. Aspirin and other pain pills used to kill the pain, but no more. Any suggestions? A Yes, a suggestion that shouldn't surprise anyone. Chronic headaches, even mild ones, call for a thorough chiropractic examination without delay. The possible causes of headaches are numerous. Some of them carry serious consequences when not properly treated. Though you have managed to suffer through a host of headaches, the underlying cause may have changed. OI996WDPC Now is the time tb find out what is causing your problem. Keep in mind, headaches are not caused by a deficiency of aspirin in the body. Although taking pain killing drugs can temporarily numb the pain, the undetected and underlying cause will remain uncorrected. Headaches, including migraine, cluster, tension, vascular and other kinds often respond well to chiropractic care. Chiropractic doctors address the underlying cause of the problem as well as the pain itself.
