"There are three unusual museums in Florida exhibiting sunken treasure salvaged from wrecks. There are museums for dolls, clocks, musical instruments — almost any object has a history," adds Sylvia McNair, senior editor of travel guides for Rand McNally, who can come up with a sightseeing suggestion, no matter what your interest "We used to think from reading history books that military and political history was all that counted. But people's concept of what history includes is broadening," says Mrs. McNair, whose latest research and editing project is "Discover Historic America," a guide to sites, battlefields, homes, museums and shrines throughout the country. on only the last 200 years of our history," she continues. "But in St Augustine, Fla., for instance, you can go back 400 years and in Santa Fe, N.M., you can see traces of its history dating back to its founding in 1610~ The editor notes that the increasing national awareness of black history is resulting in more visitors to such places as Harriet Tubman's home in Auburn, N.Y.; the Frederick Douglas Institute of Negro Arts and History in Washington, D.C., and the Carver Museum in Tuskegee, Ala. "Transportation played a tremendously important part in our history and many towns were founded when the railroad came in," she points out. "You can see that part of our past in railroad museums and there are others featuring trolleys, cars, stagecoaches, f irefighting equipment, marine museums and of course now airplane and space exhibits. "It's important to understand the lifestyles of different periods — to see a covered country's continuity. "Do some general reading about an area before visiting it, find out what people settled it, how they made a living — what particular kind of agriculture and industry there was," she advises. "Take time to read CROSSWORD PUZZLE historical markers, museums, learn how lived in the past. "It helps to bridge the generation gap for parents to become aware of the sweep of history. By seeing how different their life is from that of their grandparents, they will understand that their children's lifestyle will be different from their own." Mrs. McNair, who is an inveterate traveler both on the job and off, especially enjoys visiting Presidents' birthplaces and homes when she is on vacation. "But I don't take a real vacation anymore," she admits. "I'm always researching whenever I travel." r-Junior Editors Quiz on— I PAPILLONS ACROSS 1. Lights 6. in arrears 10. Madman 11. Colophony 12.

(AP) — Efforts by the Minnesota Highway Department to encourage carpooling by metropolitan area residents fell far short of expectations, department officials said Thursday. Only 16,000 people submitted carpool applications, of whom fewer than 6,000 could be matched with at least one other person. "There just wasn't a need felt by peoople to insure against being able to drive their own car," said Highway Commissioner Ray Lappegaard. "If the gasoline shortage had been more acute or rationing more of a threat, the response might have been better." In the program initiated early this year at the request of GOT. Wendell Anderson, all residents of the seven-county metropolitan area were mailed carpool applications. Those which were returned to the department were run through a computer in an attempt to match them. Ron Hoffman, who was in charge of the program, said the department had expected at least 50,000 applications from the two million metropolitan area residents. By PAUL RECER Associated Press Writer HOUSTON, Tex. (AP) - A local grocery store chain is battling the penny shortage by printing its own. The Eagle Grocery Stores are using paper pennies, printed at company expense and redeemable at an Eagle stores, to overcome a chronic shortage of the copper coins. "This was about the last thing that we wanted to do," store manager Dick Gardiner said Thursday. "But we really had little choice. We didn't want to cheat our customers, but we still had to make change." Customers receive green slips of paper, printed with the company name, instead of pennies for change. Five of the paper slips, which are slightly larger than a business card, are worth a nickel "• • "What else could we do," asks Gardiner. "We couldn't get pennies. And if we went through the store and rounded off all our prices the sales tax would still defeat us. We just can't do without pennies." The theory behind the penny shortage is that hoarders are storing them away in the belief that the copper they're made of will become more valuable than the worth of the penny itself. The U.S. Mint says it is coining all the pennies it can, but the shortage persists. Some banks and department stores have begun to give customers {1.10 for every 100 pennies they turn in. Gardiner said customers are cooperating in his printed penny venture and view the situation as "just one more shortage to put up with." Some Houston businesses are rounding off prices to meet the shortage. As a result, the customer sometimes gets shortchanged. The federal reserve bank in Houston says it is dumping as many pennies as ever into the Homosexual bill defeated •a 'it •****• Auction Directory SATURDAY, JUNE 1 - EDWIN HAARSTICK, 2V4 miles North of Fergus Falls, Lewis Tysdal, Auctioneer (Farm) SATURDAY, JUNE 1 - CHARLES KREKELBERG, 3 miles east of Dent. 12:30 p.m. Walter Berend, auctioneer (Farm) SATURDAY, JUNE 8 - GEORGE & HELEN DE-LEEUW, 2 miles East, Vj mile North of Millerville, 1 p.m., Ray Torgerson & Al Roers, Auctioneers (Antiques & Household) SATURDAY.

LANGLIE ESTATE, city of Ashby, 1 p.m., Ray Torgerson — Al Roers, Auctioneers (household) NEW YORK (AP) - The City Council has defeated a homosexual civil rights bill, but one of its sponsors says he plans to introduce the controversial measure again Attempts have been made over nearly four years to have the measure voted out of a council committee. Now that it has reached the floor and been defeated, Councilman Carter Burden says he will again seek its enactment The council voted 22 to 19 with two abstentions Thursday against the bul, which would have banned discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations on the basis of "sexual orientation." Principal opponents of the bill, who called it an attempt to endorse a deviant lifestyle, were the Roman Catholic diocese of New York and the Uniformed Fire Officers Association. Councilman Theodore Weiss of Manhattan argued that the bill would simply provide an administrative remedy for complaints of discrimination against rights already afforded homosexuals under the U.S. Constitution. However, opponents said the bill posed a threat to family life and to children who might be influenced by homosexual teachers. market, but they just seem to disappear. During a typical month last year, a reserve spokesman said, the federal offices here would receive $11,000 worth of pennies returned from the local banks for redistribution. Now, be says, only about $2,000 worth is returned from the banks each month. And commercial banks are having the same problem. Says one banker: "Once we'd get $500 to $1,SOO pennies back (from circulation) each week. Now we're not getting any back." GOPer plans another race SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) — Republican James Sparling Jr.. who lost a special election in Michigan's 8th Congressional District last month, says be will try again for the seat in November. Sparling was de- feted by Democrat Bob Trailer for a seat Republicans had held since 1932. Sparling conceded Wednesday for the first time that he felt a visit to the district by President Nixon shortly before the election may have hurt his chances. Franchise hearing is scheduled ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) State Securities Commissioner Edward J. Driscoll has scheduled a show cause hearing for 10 a.m. next Wednesday into gasoline station franchising operations of a Kansas firm. Named in the order is Pasco Marketing, Inc., Kansas City, Kan. The firm has offices in Minneapolis (1901 NE Grand) and operates as the sates arm for Sinclair Oil Co. Driscoll said the firm had offered service station franchises in Minnesota without registering the franchises as required by a 1973 law. Driscoll said the hearing could have widespread implications in the petroleum industry. "It is apparent that some of the petroleum companies have chosen to ignore the requirements of law imposed by the 1973 legislature," Driscoll said. He said some companies have threatened to convert their operations to company- owned stations, but also have tried to expand by granting additional franchises without registration. Driscoll said his office has received complaints from dealers alleging they have been offered unregistered franchises, including renewed leases that differ from previous agreements. The dealer complaints mainly involve allegations that the new agreements provide shorter leases with less rights for the dealer. "Some dealers have been threatened with cancellation of leases after many years with a particular company," Driscoll said. Under the 1973 law, a franchise agreement must be registered with the state securities commissioner. Driscoll said service station leases come under the law. 39 zy ii as , 40 38 5-25 2.

Palm leaf QUESTION: What isa Papilton? * + + ANSWER: A Papillon is a dainty little dog resembling a toy spaniel. It is the modern development of little dogs known as "dwarf spaniels" often seen on rare old paintings and tapestries of the 16th century. After the time of Louis XIV, the dwarf spaniel was bred extensively in France. Gradually, a type with erect, fringed ears resembling a butterfly, emerged. The French then called the breed, Papillon, which is the French word for butterfly. The Papillon weighs between 6 and 9 pounds. It has a silky coat which may vary in color. The bushy tail is curled over its back and carried like a squirrel. It is a hardy dog and does not contract disease easily. It adapts itself well to a cold or hot climate and to country or apartment living. It is lively, courageous and affectionate, with no irritable tendencies. While the breed carries the name Papillon, some are bred with drooping ears and are accepted for registration. Dogs with erect ears and ones with the drooping ears may appear in the same litter. 5-25 (Michael Bell of Baltimore, Md., wins a prize for this question.
