All Agree it was a Great Trip Joe, Susie and Will Greig tell enthusiastically about their ex- days. There were many "firsts" for each of them, including periences on a family vacation to California during the holi- being interviewed by a reporter. (Photo by Stan Brotherton) West-Coast Family Trip a Three - Generation Adventure BY DOROTHY STORY It was a three-generation adventure when Mr. and Mrs. Jno. Greig took their two sons, two daughters - in - law, and three grandchildren to California during the holidays. The special occasion for the family trip was observance of the Greigs' 50th wedding anniversary. The entourage consisted of Hugh and Jan with their daughter Susie, 11, a fifth grader; John and Connie and their sons, Will, 10, in fourth grade, and Joe, 6, in kindergarten,.and, of course, the excited grandparents. From everybody's viewpoint the project was a great success. It was carefully planned to include attractions that would appeal to all the ages but especially to the childrea The trip west was made by plane—two planes, in fact, as the party was divided. One group arrived in Denver and had to wait for the second plane that was fogged in at Sioux Falls. So that the children would have the experience of train travel, the return trip from Los Angeles to Kansas City was by train. For the children there were many firsts. Joe had .neve* ridden on either a train or plane and it was the first overnight train trip for the other two. Joe said he liked the plane best and now he and Will want to go to Florida on a plane. "We could go there and see our other grandparents" (the Bert Kints at Naples), they said. "And then we could see the other Disneyland." All three children agreed that high point of the sightseeing was Disneyland, specifically "Pirates of the Caribbean." Also high on their list was "Lion Country Safari," an area where wild animals roam free and, as Joe said, "it's the people who are locked up" (in their cars.) Without hesitation, however, Susie said the high point of the Mrs. Myers Worthy Matron North Star Chapter No. 200 of Estherville held its regular installation of officers Jan. 8. The meeting was opened with Mrs. Cornelia Nutting presiding. Mrs. Vermaine Sidles, worthy past matron, was presented as installing officer. Those assisting Mrs. Sidles were: Mrs. Arnold Anliker, installing mar- shall; Mrs. W. B. Hammer, installing chaplain; and Mrs. Gordon Forsyth, installing organist. Officers installed for 1972 were Mrs. Harris Myers, worthy matron; Robert Griffith, worthy patron; Mrs. Howard Gray, associate matron; James Callahan, associate patron; Mrs. William Hunt, secretary; Mrs. Lehman Rovn, treasurer; Mrs. Rodney Brink, conductress; Mrs. James Callahan, associate conductress; Mrs. Willard Bebo, chaplain; Mrs. Kenneth Meadows, mar shall; Mrs. August Rosenberger, organist; Miss Dorothy Fear, Adah; Mrs. Victor Hansen, Ruth; Mrs. Robert Griffith, Esther; Mrs. JohnPospisil, Mar- Mrs. Walter Wittneben, Sentinel; Willard Bebo, warden. After Mrs. Myers was installed as the new worthy matron, Joan Forsyth sang, "He." She then was escorted to the east by her husband. Newly installed worthy patron, Robert Griffith was also favored with a song "Let There Be Peace" sung by Joan Forsyth. Following the installation, the worthy matron introduced her family, honored guests, and out- of-town visitors. Mrs. Cornelia Nutting was presented her past matron's pin by Mrs. Walter Wittneben, and retiring worthy patron, Vermaine Sidles, was also presented with a gift from the chapter. Lunch was served in the dining room. Mrs. Cornelia Nutting poured coffee and Mrs. Walter Wittneben served punch. The serving table was decorated with a floral arrangement, candles and pictures of the worthy grand matron and worthy grand patron. Other tables were decorated with small candle favors and book- tha; Mrs. Tone Kateley, Electa; Dress up Those Chops BY JUNE STEINBORN, Extension Home Economist Emmet and Dickinson Counties They are always delicious, but sometimes it's fun to try a new approach such as— PORK CHOPS DELUXE Trim chops— salt and pepper Dip in pancake mix Brown lightly in fat Carefully remove to a flat baking pan.

Clothing Is Discussed by Sorority "Clothing for Madame" was the topic of discussion, led by Mrs. Charles Nourse at the Jan. 10 meeting of Xi Delta Theta chapter No. 3866. Mrs. Nourse was hostess to the meeting at her home. Mrs. Francis Donahue, president, called the meeting to order and the opening ritual was followed by roll call. A note was read from Mrs. John Poulos expressing appreciation for cookies provided for the Helping Hands Day Care Center. The group is considering sponsoring a teen dance some time in May. Other service projects are assisting in preparing envelopes for the Heart Fund in February and helping in delivery of Meals on Wheels. Mrs. Nourse discussed cleaning and care of clothing as well as fads, style and individual dress. The group enjoyed a potluck supper after the meeting. trip for her was "seeing Uncle Dick." Uncle Dick, who lives at Arcadia, Calif., is Richard Morse, actually a grand-uncle. Apparently Susie found him really "grand." Now she wants to go to Connecticut "to meet some more relatives." This would be another uncle, Robert Morse. Meeting relatives she hasn't seen before is special for Susie. Joe and Will like scarey stuff. For example at Disneyland they enjoyed the bobsled ride, the haunted house, and going through the waterfalls. The Lion Safari was thrilling for all of them. "An ostrich pecked at the window of our car," Will said. "Lions and zebras andcheetas and other animals were walking around all over," they sjn<£> "You had to be sure the windows of your car were rolled up and the doors locked. The animals were free but they weren't as tame as they looked." Although Jan Greig said she didn't think the children enjoyed their visit to Universal Movie studios as much as the older members of the family, they were actually quite impressed with demonstrations of how movie scenes are faked. "They showed us how actors don't really hit each other hard in fight scenes," said Joe, demonstrating what he meant. They learned that what looks like an ocean on the screen may be only a pond. Will volunteered to helpanani- mal trainer who was showing off the talents of a puppy that may some day play in a movie with a boy. On command, the dog jumped into Will's arms and when told to attack he growled fiercely. Will said they took pictures and they're anxious to see them, especially of the Lion Safari and the killer whales of Marineland. They told about one whale that could count by slapping his tail. Sue and Joe walked through all the cars of the train on the way home and Will enjoyed the view from the vista dome. They ate in the dining car. "Grandma had the finger bowl," Susie recalled. "Now you can tell all about your trip in school," we suggested. "I already have," said Joe, but we're sure there's much, much more. Personal Mention Montana Pastor Visits With His Parents Here ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, WED., JAN. 12, 1972 Page 2 The Rev. Henrik Engebretson of Kalispell, Mont., was a guest for several days at the home of his parents, the Rev. and Mrs. Oscar E. Engebretson. Welfare Diet 'Adequate but Monotonous' Mrs. Marvin Rohlf reported . Friday on an experiment during which she fed her family of seven on a welfare diet for two weeks. Estherville Presbyterian Women heard her report at their January meeting and luncheon. A film on the Head Start program, now using the facilities of the Presbyterian Church, and a talk by Mrs. C. L. Hackett who Is local director of the program, also were presented during the meeting. Mrs. Rohlf told how she modified her usual grocery shopping to fit the welfare budget, taking into consideration commodities she already had on hand and items that lasted more than the two weeks. She said that with careful planning she was able to provide a balanced diet for her family although there was no money for luxury items. She remarked that careful planning is necessary and the welfare diet would no doubt become monotonous over a long period of time. Her family, she said, was unaware that the experiment was in progress. Her husband asked her "when are we going on the welfare budget?" and she replied "We've already done it." She said the children were never aware that the food budget had been reduced. The Head Start film showed how pre-school children benefit from the program, with pictures taken in a Head Start classroom. Mrs. Hackett told of the work being done in Emmet County and the improvement she has seen in children under her care. New circle leaders were announced and circle lists posted. UPW board members served the luncheon that preceded the meeting. 1 THE L0CKH0RNS -12. «YE6, THERE'S ANOTHER WOMAN IN MY LIFE YOUR LOOP-MOUTHEP MOTHER!"
