Sargent & Go "Makers of Famous Sargent Feeds" This week there arrived in the mail, a letter from Betty Vinson of Rock Rapids. I was doubly pleased to receive it—first, because I had been wondering what ever had become of Betty and second, because the letter contained, as her missives usually do, some helpful suggestions for the column. * * » "Why don't you re-run some of your columns by popular demand", writes Betty. "Like rerun television shows—'The Best of Grace', of, The-Summer Days '(Daze) of Grace'." Then Betty enclosed, and I still don't know if she did it on purpose, a clipping entitled, "Loafing To Stay Healthy Is One Fascinating Idea." * » • • Now, I don't have 16 be hit over *he head to recognize a good idea when I see one, and in my case a "popular demand" can consist of just one reader. At our house we are frantically packing to go on our vacation, so re-running a column is a most welcome idea. And, "traveling with children" should be a most appropriate subject for that's just what we'll be doing. * * • The saying, "He travels fastest who travels alone", must have been thought up by some parents who had just returned from summer vacation ttrip accompanied by their offspring. * * * Traveling with the children 5s a major undertaking, whether it's a hundred mile jaunt to a lake cottage or an extended tour of the United States. Either trip has few dull moments and the equipment to be taken along is just about the same, too. The first problem is getting all that gear stowed in the car. Those firm resolutions about traveling light have a way of wobbling when Sister can't bear to leave her doll at home and Junior tearfully demands his dump trucks. Then the uncertain laundry facilities necessitate packing almost the entire family wardrobe. Father must have his fishing equipment and Mother can't cook without her favorite frying pan. Sometimes it would be simpler to phone a moving crew and take the whole house along on the vacation. « * » "Take Aloqg Plenty of Food' is a major rule when travelini with youngsters. No matter how many meals you eat in rostau rants, some little voice is alway piping up, "I'm hungry!" 'A few dozen sandwiches, certain les juicy fruits and a box of cookie- will help stave off starvation. Po tato chips are nice too, but the- make you mighty thirsty. (i * * This brings us to another family touring problem — maintaining the bodily liquid balance. Cross- ng the Sahara on a camel could lot bring any more thirst to a oung throat than passing a root ^ecr stand in an automobile. street corners have water foun- ains on them and road signs advertise pop. If any child forgets about wanting a drink for a moment or two, he is easily remind' When you finally get all throats watered down, you find you have trouble at the other end of the line. All family trips start with a whispered suggestion to esch member. When you stop (or gas there are more suggestions with the invariable reply, "I don't hafta now." But when you get fifty miles from nowhere out on the highway, they all "hafta" aiu they cun't wait for the next res' and parents just give up and let the kids fight. Or they can read comics. But this has a way of robbing travel of its broadening influences and Beetle Bailey often holds more fascination for the youngsters than the sights of the trip. * * * Traveling with children may not be the most relaxing way to tour, but I'm convinced that .it is worth all the headaches. When you return, you find you have a whole new compartment filled in your storehouse of memories. These can be taken out and fondly looked at long after the children are grown and they'll furnish all sorts of material for "remember when" sessions. If we tend to polish up the good parts and make our family look lots more adventuresome, who's to care? And, taking the children along on a trip is usually less complicated than finding a com- petant baby-sitter. V V * By the- time you read this, I plan to be on the beach in front of the Algona Outing Club cottage on beautiful Cass Lake. Father and Bill will be out in '.he boat catching wall-eyes as fast as they can pull them in. The girls will be making mud pies and sand castles in between swims and Wienie will be under the porch chasing chipmunks. Or, and this is a very horrible idea, we'I DRAGGED After he parked his car at Neola\ recently ,Rev. Stephen Jones noticed the car was beginning to move.
