In the city of Las Palmas, In the Canary Islands, they went into port during a very large celebration, which found the streets lined with flowers and featured a tremendous religious procession, though the two didn't gather the complete significance of the occasion. While they were in the island city they were the honorary members of the Royal Club Nau-tico and received the royal treatment all the way through. "Though .Spanish and Portugese are the basic languages there." he said, "German and English are also widely spoken. "Both Karko and I manage German, so we managed to get along pretty well." BOAT REFITTED The pair remained there while their small boat was being refitted and resupplied with stores. They received the tops in , hospitality from the native people, staying as guests of the Yacht Club.

Nicholson, an Eng lishman, who ran a charter boat service for tourists in the picturesque city. The Nicholson family made them their guests for the week of Emigohlz's stay, making the visit an enjoyable and memorable one.

Under the sponsorship of the Junior Women's Auxiliary at the College of Medical Evangelists, Stan Midgley will personally narrate his film, "Colorado Today and Yesterday." The feature-length program begins in Denver and includes such well - known points of interest and beauty as Central City, Rocky Mountain National Park, Garden of the Gods, the Royal Gorge, a bicycle trip through the San Juan Mountains,! and the Singing Sands of Alamo- sa. As an added feature, Midgley will show his color footage of this year's Rose Parade in Pasa-j dena including all of the floats and many of the marching bands and other highlights. He describes his latest Rose Parade film as his best from standpoint of color and brilliance. "We had excellent sunlight conditions which make the flower - decked floats really live on the screen," commented Midgley. A "Nutshell" description of Stan Midgley begins with his graduation from Princeton in the field of chemistry during the depression years. Two of his best years came next. Then he found a job. Thereafter his colleagues began to call him "that crazy chemist." Not for his prowess with test tube and clothes pin, however, but because he rode his bicycle to work. A mere 48 miles every day. Always striving to make his work more interesting, Midgley kept a list of everything good or bad about his job. After eight years he had eight "goods." Eight vacations. Obviously he was a square head in a round hole. Quitting chemistry for good (chemistry's good), he went into vacations full time. His Opus One, a movie about a bicycle trip in Utah, won the $1,000 first prize in a nationwide contest. He was on his way. In the following years eight chucklelogues have established him as the Mark Twain of the Camera.
