Visitor Here N To Spend Month On Local Farm By Don Cook In 1946, 4-H clubs hit on trie idea of giving overseas people a chance to witness the way farming, and just plain living is done in the United States. This was the beginning of the International Farm Youth Exchange program, which every year sends some American youths to foreign lands, •„ and brings' foreign farm boys^rb the united "States-. 'This-' year,' The LF.Y.E. -brought 125 'guests—to, our shores, and among them was John Ramsay, 22-year-old youth from New Zealand, who is now spending a month on the D. C. Gardner farm north of Algona. "Whew, Hit's 'Of I found John putting up silage on the Troutman farm, a few miles north of the Gardners. "Whew, hit's "ot," were his first words. Being an Alec Guineas fan I sat down for what I knew would bo u very enjoyable talk. I was not to be disappointed. The first point John cleared up was that of explaining exactly why he was over here. He pointed out that the I.F.Y.E. program is a good will mission rather than a technical one. His main interest is to learn about the American people, their customs and ideas, rather than their meathod of farming, and at the same time, tell Americans a little about New Zealand. Iowa Surprises He is enjoying his trip here very much, and Iowa has been a special treat for him, as the hills and greenness both surprised him and reminded him of his home. On his trip from the west coast, John saw little "but rock and sand." He stated that since he had always thought of Iowa as being a member of the U.S. great plains area, he was very surprised to find that it was so hilly . He was quite interested in the customs of America, and remarked he was amazed to hear how young some girls are when they get married. "Because most of the New Zealand high schools are noe coeducational, you rarely hear of a girl being engaged until she has been graduated foi some time," he said. The site of my class • ring brought a smile to his face, as men do not wear jewelry of any kind in New Zealand . A custom of Americans that John has to suffer for is our 3 meal-a-day habit. In New Zealand, a 7-meal day is a must, an4 John finds himself getting hungry long before the bell rings. Talk Troubles It was about this time that I remarked that I was having a little trouble catching some of his phrases through his accent. He replied by telling me' of an incident while he was staying in New Hampton, Iowa'. The farmer he was steyingl with sent him to the neighbors for a couple bales of hay. He knocked on the door and informed the neighbor that he had come for a couple "bile ah' ; hie," All hopes for communication ended right there, until 'John saw a pick-up truck in the driveway. He went over and speller} out the word "hay" on the dusty fender, and the mission was soon carried out. ' ' • While speaking of New Zealand, he pointed out that most farming techniques of ;Iowa farmers would b,e of little value to the hilly country across, jtha 'tye&js New Zealand 'farming) ^3 'primarily.- ,qf v the"'pasture v ( type.' They have"".over.., 32jOOC£000 she'dd" oT sheep, arTT7f sheep forjeach New Zealander. : He put in 'the claim that New Zealand possesses more beef and dairy cattle!than Iowa. He ,said that there is no 4-H movement in New Zealand, as we know it here, but projects in rearing dairy cattle are offered in the grade schools. Good Fishing "For any fishermen who want to travel", John says, "don't overlook New Zealand." He went on, telling about a 5-day fishing trip that four men made to a New Zealand lake, during which they caught 63 rainbow trout, that averaged 0 poundd in weight. According to New Zealand law, any trout 13 inches or less must be thrown back into the lake. When it ca,me time to take.his picture, I was a little dubious, as I am of the "double exposure and slanting" type, but luckily, photography is one of John's hobbies. He is also very much interested in ham radio. After his stay in Algona, he will go to East Lansing, Mich, to meet three other New Zealand "I.F.Y.E.'S" and then on to New York. He and his friends then plan to spend seven weeks in England and on the European continent. Following his trip, John will continue helping his father farm.

Mrs George Manus entertained a few friends at her home Tuesday honoring her mother, Mrs Bertha Mansmith, whose birthday anniversary was that day. Bobby Melville of Iowa City is visiting his grandparents, Mr and Mrs Fied Vogel, his father hiving brought him last week. Dr. and Mrs Melville are parent; ot a, second daughter, Brolly Jean, who was born May 18. Samuel Colt invented the revolver in 1835. 41 „ . •! ,''•""
