From tJass Lake, Minri. Eight children, four adults and one dog need an awfiil lot of gear when they leave home for a week's vacation. In our case, we piled everything into two cars and a station wagon and after a ride that took most of the day, we are holed up here in the Al- gond Outing Club cottage. The trip was free from catastrophes, but it was far from uneventful. * * * If there is some sort of law about caravans requiring a license In Iowa and Minnesota, we are fugitives from justice for by the time we got underway we resembled nothing more ..than a tribe of gypsies heading for Ihe easy-picking grounds for ihe season. There were the • motor for ihe boat, boxes of kitchen gear, blankets, fishing equipment, mairesses plus practically Ihe entire summer wardrobe of every person. From every window of every car hung one or more slightly grimey-f aced youngster. Aunt Mid said it reminded 'her of ihe book, "Grapes of Wralh" when ihai family of "Oakies" weni to California. * * * There wire several stops en> route for it is the little break that 'makes any trip bearable when you are traveling with small-fry. There were,the usua filling station pauses, the water .ing stops and the time'we stopped to trade our luncheon sandwiches. The kids shifted from car to car to break the monotony of riding in the same One all the way. There was some element o> danger in this, for we could have left a couple of them behind, thinking they were in another car, but we arrived at the cottage with the same number of people starting the trip. ^ Vacations need a bit of excitement along with the rest and relaxation. The first night here filled this requirement. At least as far as Grace is concerned it was a real wild one. It was raining and immediately upon retiring I fell as fast asleep as if I had been at home in my own bed. In fact, I must have been dreaming I was, for when I fancied I heard one of the youngsters calling, "Mommie", I leaped from my bed to go to his assistance. This would not have been at all/"unr, usual, excepting that I. was sleep* ing on the top tier of a bunk bed! Leaping Lena, I'm known as these days, but it will be a little while before I can leap again. I gol a wrenched knee out of the deal and when Bill developed a fever and sore throat the next day, we decided lo drive to the hospital in Bemidji for medical attention. Dr. D. E. Ho- gansoivtook very good care of Iis, but when he arrived he said,'"Did I read this .chart right? Does it say you hurt your leg falling out of a bunk?" I had to confess to being thai stupid, but Ihe Doctor says he will not consi- • der the case closed until he hears my husband's version of the mishap. Penicillin took care of Bill, and aspirin, hoi packs and sympathy fixed me up right fine. Dr. Hoganson is considered our family doctor while we are at Cass ' Lake for we called upon him again last night. Lite Jackie bbcame ill and anothe. trip to Bemidji was in order. He s still ill today and we'll all be glad when He is up and around making a nuisance of himself. But all in all, it's a pretty good average. There are twelve people here and only three of them have needed medical attention so far - . . * Another patient at the emer- gencv ward of the hospital had a rather unusual accident. Shp was in for X-rays on her jmv after being kicked in the face by an Indian squaw who had. been drinking too much fire water The n the frying pan. It cahnbt .be denied ihat our chickens lent quite an atmosphere to the neigh- )orhood; but the atmosphere was hardly of the desirable type when the weather got wet and the feec got spilled on the ground. The neighbors were long suffering and most tolerant, and we didn Dlame them for complaining a bi when the stench came into theh windows in a more potent form than it did into ours, The gif of colored chickens is a nice ges ture toward a Happy Easter, bu next year if anyone even look; like they are going to give u some, I'm going to start running • * • The fishing is poor al Cass Lak right now, but nobody minds bit, with the possible exceptior of Father. It seems to inake n difference that he catches littl for he sits out in the boat and keeps trying aivy way. We did have one fish dinner and we ;are saving up for another one. * * * . The weather has been delightful. Warm in the daytime, cool at night with a big moon over the lake ,,that could have been swiped from a romantic Hollywood stage set. The kids are enjoying the white sandy beach and they are bringing tons of it 'into the cottage to be'swept out again. We saw a deer the other evening, crossing the highway and ambling along quite unafraid of the pass- ng motorists. There's no telephone to distrub us, no television programs to miss and we are get- ;ing quite ignorant of what's going on outside of our litte group here in the cottage. It's a fine vacation, but just the same 111 be glad to gel home again and back to a bathtub, an indoor w.
