The Maroon Voy. 3 I''olfunry 27, 1954 No. Publisher, Bvci-y Week In the School Year by Stuelenlji of Journalism of Holy Family School Member of Catholic School I'rtsn Association ami Quill and Scroll THE MAROON * THE BLUE Co-Edited by HOLY f A Day Proves Interesting to Henry Wallace and Students By SARANN RYAN *-It was lo be my first interview. It was all going to be SO easy. Armed with my trusty'pencil and an 8xll piece of paper with four leading questions'I.set forth. And there to reassure me was Gary Brophy. Gary had just received thc doctor's OIC to be back at school and together we would get the scoop. That Feb. 23 was a beautiful diiy--a normal April day in Mason City. The farmers were having an iiistilulc. We would just slip over to Holy F a m i l y Church Auditorium, gel our information ami be right back in class five minutes later. It was then 11 a.m. Just as easy as that! Intel-viewing is no task! What a surprise there was in store for two cub reporters. We went lo lhe auditorium but there was no one to interview. Again we went to the auditorium; again no interview. Lost for Words Perseverance at last won o u t . What happened? We were lost for .words! Our lips moved but no sounds were heard. At last we gathered courage and introduced ourselves as school reporters and asked for an interview. Just as is to be expected we came upon another obstacle. Our interviewer must catch a 3 p.m. train. It was then 2:30 p.m. Come with him and be would grant us an interview as he made his way lo thc station. Henry Wallace, former Vice President and U. S. Secretary of Agriculture, was thc one we were to interview. We followed him out of the auditorium. We walked several blocks, talking as we went. Mr. Wallace's arms were linked in Gary's and mine. Feeling that we had gathered what information we needed we bid Mr. Wallace adieu. No Politics But we were not lo be cast off so lightly. We decided to follow "our man" to the station for a more direct quote. We had written nothing down as we had been di- rected. How coukl we while walking? Gary and 1 climbed into Dave Martin's waiting "chariot." Arriving at the station we bopped from the car and again confronted Mr. Wallace. lie was more than happy to see us and I feel he, too, was enjoying our escapades. What did he; have to say? Well, he declined to talk politics. He flatly stated, ' ' I ' m not in politics." When asked w h a t he thought was thc f a r m e r ' s biggest problem he said: "Fixed costs and declining "arm prices." Mr. Wallace also told us that he considered it a privilege, rathe; han a duty, for the U. S. to be iblc to use our surplus supply ol "ood for the people of other coun rics who are, through our help, gradually learning how to produce heir own food supply. Narrow Margin "Any future farmers of America must be careful not to invest an ircal a m o u n t in farming because of lhe narrow profit margin o .bclay's farmer," he warned. Our interview over, we began lo 'cturn to our classes. A block awa 'rom school we heard a hissing sound. We felt thc car lean to one side. We heard Dave mutter "A flat." What next . . . ! Walking tin. r e m a i n i n g way to school, we laughed and joked of our day's experiences. The three of us dc cicled that an interview wasn'l what we had thought it to be. After finishing my school day I went home and there upon the kitchen floor lay the Sunday pa per containing an article on a re cent talk by Mr. Wallace. Heavens! To think I might have stayed home and obtained my in formation--but it's not every d a j that a high schooler interviews AIS EX-VICE PRESIDENT. ANYONE CAN OPERATE A VICTOR ADDING MACHINE.
