I ' Bicentennial wagon train keeps movin' on EZ'tf *?£*£*-*-. - a i na, Valley Forge, P.., for , Jib, 4 «lrtl«m Wtar b we rf their report. »tie prnrea" ttSr trip.) May U, 1JJ6 Cold Water, Mi*. Hi, aU you people in the Otter Tail Empire! We are moving along, so we are now in Michigan Had a very nice trip through the state of Indiana It was such a nice clean-looking farming area that we came through, with nice buildings and well-kept older homes. Springtime is a good time to travel anyway, as ..."South Bend was the home of the Studebaker wagon... In* trees are so beautiful and the grass is so green Lunch was furnished us one day af Purdue University. We sort of surprised them though, as they mdn t realize how many people were on the train There are even more now - well over 200,1 heard last South Bend, Indiana, was an interesting njace. A large city, of course, but if/was the home of the famous Studebaker wagon and later the Studebaker and Studebaker-Erskine cars. The older Mr, Studebaier came there with his five sons and settled In that area because of the iron ore and the various kinds of trees. ...and more rain... They started making wagons and buggies. One of the sons, John, was the adventurous type and wanted to go to California to find gold, so be made two Conestoga wagons and gave them to a wagon train for the privilege of going with them. He made it to Calif onto, but found out gold minijig wasn't profitable, so started malting wheelbarrows and pickaxes for the miners In due time he had accumulated W.OOO. Meanwhile, back here in South Bend his family ins in afepreuion so he brought back bis savings andwiththathelptheywere able to start again. We were abk to go through the Studebaker museum one evening and also see the outside of the Studebaker mansion—and mansion it was, almost a castle. We stayed over the weekend at White Pigeon, Mich., at a school parking lot, so we had warm showers and they left the gym area open so those with sleeping bags could sleep there. It'rained really hard all day Saturday as we were driving in there. Sunday was pretty nice but about 7 pjn. it clouded up again and rained aU evening and all night. We have had very few nice days so far. Sunday afternoon we took a little drive around the Amish neighborhood and saw their farms. Several oJ Item were on the road with their square enclosed buggies and single driving horses. The wagon train is gettjig really large now. We picked up several units here in Michigan and consequently the personnel has grown tremendously. It really takes a large area for them to circle the wagons ..."it takes a large area to circle the wagons at night".. at night. What will it be like when we get to Valley Westillneed heat in our camper every night and a lot of the days, so you can see it isn't very warm. We are having a wonderful experience, though, and wish a lot of you could be with us. Slim and Lorraine from the Wagon Train Feigus Falls (Hn.)

By CARMEN BERG, Oiliren'i Librarian Within a Couple of weeks, if you're keeping your eye on our paperback racks, you'll see some new titles come to life. We hope we've hit one of the areas you enjoy when reading! Armstrong Sperry wrote a Newberry Medal winner titled' 'CalL It Courage" which will interest many a reader. A young boy, Mafatu by name, is a coward. He is afraid of the sea because it killed his mother when he was a baby. By the time he is ten years old, he can no longer bear all toe taunts he gels, so one day he sets out alone to conquer his fear of the sea in a canoe... Y(W win probably enjoy "Aunt America" by Marie H. Blocb especially in our Bicentennial year. Lesya, the girl in the story lives in a small Ukranian village. Her aunt from America comes to visit and the trouble really begins. Her aunt doesn't understand how to keep in with officials and not worry so much about Lesya's father who was arrested. The result of living in a free country! "Manhattan Is Missing" by E.W. Hildick is not the city of Manhattan but a cat! He belongs to a family with three boys, all of who pay no attention to him until he turns up missing and they receive a ransom note. Then Peter, the daydreamer, goes into action to discover just what is going on! How would you feel if you had been living at a school for handicapped children for five years and all of a sudden'you are going home and to a public school? Scared? That's just how Sal Copeland feels in "Mine For Keeps" by Jean Little. With thehelp of a puppy, Susie, who needs lots of love, Sal holds her own and begins to make friends. \ Nine-year-old Rasmus was running away from the orphanage to find a home of his own. Instead he meets Paradise Oscar, the'most remarkable tramp you're likely to meet. Thus goes the story "Rasmus and the Vagabond" by Astrid Lindgren. The ending will throw you for a loop as it's not at all expected! If you enjoyed the book, "Caddie Woodlawn," by Carol Ryrie Brink, you'll also enjoy her book "Magical Melons." Here she relates fourteen escapades about the seven Woodlawn children who lived on the Wisconsin border in 1860. The seven children make for lively reading 1 . Happy reading!

He's married, but says his wife doesn't care if he goes with other women. I guess it must be true because he never has to hurry- home when we're-together, and he can get away to see me whenever he wants to. This seemed too good to be true, so 1 told him that I wouldn 't see him anymore unless he brought me a note from his wife saying it was okay with her if he went oat with me, He said he'd put her on the phone, but she's not in favor of putting anything in writing. \Vhat do you think, Abby? I'm 42 and divorced, and I don't want any trouble. LUCKY DEAR LUCKY: Note or not, if you don't vut uy trouble, find yourself * angle nun. Hi> wife could suddenly change her raiod- and your luck! DEAR ABBY: Some time ago you mads u big fuss because a teacher asked her students to make a "family tree." You said it was an invasion of privacy. You sure lipped,your mitt on that one, Abby. Ill bet you've never traced your family tree because you're afraid of what they might find. KURT DEAR KURT: No. I'm tfraid (key might seed me b** a bunch of ban IMS. DEAR ABBY: Last November I became very much attracted to a guy. There was only one problem. He had a 9 month-old baby. He's not married to* the baby's mother, and be says the only reason he stays with her is because of the baby. f am almost positive that he is interested in me. He gives me a nd« to school every morning, and we have a lot of fun laughing and talking together. He says that he and his boyfriends like to go to small towns near here and pick up girls. I'm afraid if I ever went out with him il would lead to something libe that, and he would have no more regard for me than he does for the girls he picks up. 1 like this guy a lot, but I'm terrified at the thought of having a relationship with him. Yet deep down I would like to. I am IS and he is 17. Maybe if you print this, he will know 1 am talking about him and he'll talk to me about it.

DEAR ABBY: My husband also has his ear pierced and he wears a small musical note in il to symbolize his profession. 1 don't particularly like it,butrmsureldoalot of things he doesn't particularly like, either. If we bickered and quarreled over things so trivial, we wouldn't have much of a marriage. So tell MONTANA WIFE to accept her husband for what h* is-a unique individual with the courage to do what he wants to do for his own reasons. HATS OFF IN GEORGIA Hate to write letters?
