Wagon train report: Adventures, welcomes greet today's pioneers BICENTENNIAL WAGON TRAIN PILGRIMAGE (Editor's ante: Slim and Lorraine BcKmichsen are among the Minnesota!]; who are re-living history by ridiog the wagon train to Valley Forge, Pa., far a July 4celebration.The trek Is a Bicentennial project o< the state of Peusylvanla, and has dram participants .from all 50 states. The following is a report from Lorraine Boonichsen on some of their receit experiences. | Monday, April 26 DeForest, Wis. Hi to all the Otter Tail Empire people: I am hoping you are all keeping track of us through the daily broadcast over KBRF. Today we will be camping at DeForesI, Wis., which is a small town of 1,100 people between Portage and Ft. Atkinson. We came.into Wisconsin April 19 and will be in this state until May 3. We've had really good receptions here, as we did in Minnesota. The people are really turning out to see the Wigon Train, che ering a nd clapping as it goes through. As many limes as we have seen it, it still brings a lump to our throats, and other people along the wayside have told us the same thing. We had some rough weather last weekend, cold and rain Saturday, but today is beautiful and sunny. We hope it will get a little warmer, though. La st Friday noon the driver on the Minnesota wagon fell from the back of the wagon with a sack of feed, injuring his shoulder and arm, so Slim had to take over that wagon through Saturday. Friday afternoon as we were driving along, one of the big flags on the wagon ahead of us broke its pole and came sailing down right in front of our horses. Needless to say, it scared the horses and as they jumped, they broke the neck yoke. Slim held them right there and within seconds some of the outriders were thete to help hold them and the man in the wagon behind us brought a chain and fixed us up temporarily and we were in business again. When you are driving, it is very difficult to get out of the wagons quickly, so the official outriders, of which there are ten, really have their place. We have twin sisters from Bismarck, N.D., that are exceptional at that job. I rode all day Saturday with Slim and it really was terribly cold and rainy. The wind blew the rain into Ihe front of the wagon and we couldn't seem to get back far enough to eliminate il. We had a waterproof Iwrse bhi&el over our laps but by the time we got into camp even that was getting wel. The lines got so wet and slippery it was hard to hang on to them. But, that's all part of the game and it makes the sunshine even more welcome. Last night in Portage they had the whole wagon train for dinner besides some local people so there were about 200 in all. Had a really nice chicken dinner at the new municipal building. We sat across the table from the mayor and his wife and they were such nice people. We have met so many nice people that il restores your faith in America again, and I hope we are making people along the way feel the same way. We are also doing so much autographing it makes us feel like celebrities. We were happy to see Ken and Ruth Berg yesterday. It was such a surprise. The day before we visited with some people from Elbow Lake but I neglected lo get their name - thanks for talking to us, anyway! I just can't encourage you enough to come down and see Ihe train as it is moving along before we get any further away. KBRF has our schedule so you can find out from them where we are at all limes. If you do come, don't leave without seeing us — we are around someplace. More to you later — this is Slim and Lorraine from the Wagon Train.

Nearly everyone in his family is light-skinned, and their hair is thin, like Caucasians. Some of my husband's relatives are trying to pass as Indians. They go around with their hair parted in (he middle wearing headbands. They look ridiculous because the Indians around here don't wear headbands. They even put "Indian" on their drivers' licenses where il says "race." When one of them gels married, they have a Catholic ceremony, and then al the reception they all sit around and smoke Ihe "peace pipe." My poor husband is so humiliated because everyone who knows about his relatives looks al him funny. At first 1 thought that these people did not want to be considered black because of the hard times minorities have in some places. But, Abby. Indians are more of a minority than blacks are! I am nol prejudiced against any minority. I just hate phony people. \Vhal is your opinion? UPSET IN MARYLAND DEAR UPSET: You ran't-pick your relatives, but you ran pick your friends, and there is DO law that forces you to be friendly with relatives you don't care for. And us for their "passing," if people want to pass. IT'S THEIR BUSINESS.
