JULY 7,1955 &lgona Ifyjper JWomes: JULY 7,1955 Algonans Take Variety of Trails Spread From Coast-To-Coast This Summer By Evelyn Cady Six months ago Algonans were on the move to find a warm, pleasant spot to spend the winter. Now they are again on the prowl to find places where cool bi-ee/.es blow if the fish bite, and in earh case it is n search for comfort. Our forefathers might well say, "What a batch of softies we have propagated!" Of course, pinning one clown, comfort for the vacationer isn't always the main object. It's a desire to "get away from it all," see new places and visit, friends. We arc a restless nation and if the other place looks better than the one we are in we dash up to a certain point. And if the "Joneses" can go places, we don't see why we can't keep up with them. Now I don't mean "keeping up with the Joneses" in quite the way the original quip was begun. What I mean is "if the Joneses saw such and such a place and enjoyed it, let's try it too." And it's a lot of fun talking with the Joneses and comparing impressions of the places we've seen. Taking a vacation from the purely comfort standpoint includes these who find Lake Okoboji the answer, the Dr. Karl Hoffmans, Charles LaBarres, R. II. Millers, Ralph Donovans, Harry Goddens, Russell Cooks, Wait Halls. Joel Herbsts, who own cottages there or trailer 'houses, and spend nearly every day there from June 1 till September 1, and longer. To another group of Okyboji vacationers belong those who get only a week or two there, some •having already been there, others in happy anticipation. Their trips are always interspersed in local news throughout the summer. Long-Distance Travelers Those who took time to go more distant places were Mr and Mrs William Finn, Carol and Jimmy who recently returned from the west coast. They went via Phoenix, Ariz., and were guests of Mr and Mrs Carson Taylor. The Taylors have purchased a new house, Carson is well established with an aircraft firm. They like Phoenix Very much and are very happy. Charles will enter college there in the fall. From Phoenix the Finns went to San Diego and Los Angeles. In the vicinities they saw the Kenneth Samps and the George Boswells. They too are pleased with the change but happy to see folk from "the old home town." The Finns returned home by way of Salt Lake City and while the oldsters were glad to get back home, Carol and Jimmy would have liked nothing better than to stay on. In fact I rather think Carol would like living there. I went through the same phase. Others who are just back from the west coast are Mr and Mrs Ralph Valentine and Mrs Ray Cook. Mr and Mrs Valentine visited their son Don, and family and Mrs Cook visited her niece, Mrs Lloyd Keith and family. They too are enchanted with California. In California I noticed that those who lived at the ocean- sixle drive inland, those who live inland go to the shore or mountains and those who live in the mountains go to the shore or in-, land, bearing out my statement that we are a restless people. So it is with vacationers—the west coasters come here, Minnesotans g" t<> Canada, easterners go south and so it goes, in the group who come.s eust from the west, and most important to me, is my cousin Meivin Henderson, who with yii.s wife Leeta and children, Gayle and Fred from Pomona, Cal. went to Washington, D. C. and New York City, thonce here to see me on July Fourth. It is a vacation that "is a VACATION. From here they plan to go to Good Thunder, Minn., to visit Leeta's uncle and aunt, Mr and Mrs "Jack" Slebbins, thence home via Yellowstone. Minnesota calls to many. Mr and Mrs Don Hutchison and daughter Nancy, spent the July Fourth weekend at Crane Luke, near Pine City. Don had business in the vicinity and it made a good opportunity for the family to accompany him for a few day's vacation. Mr and Mrs Lowell Lenz don't go on vacation until August but (hey too have chosen Minnesota. Their favorite location is Stone Gate Lodge, at Lake Korones, said by many to be the most beautiful lake in Minnesota. (Now I hope this doesn't produce any hair pulling.) Mr and Mrs Dorman Jones are also looking forward to an August vacation. Dorman is to meet the son. Jack, at Fort Sill, Okla., then they will go to Houston and Galveslon, Tex., to visit relatives. Mrs Jones has been in those places before and remembers the heat and humidity, so she is going to relax in comfort, and cool comfort we hope at Bagley with her parents. Mr Jones and Jack will stop at Little Rock, Ark., enroute home to visit other relatives. Changeful Mind The Tom Lundells are going to venture as far as Imperial, Mo., to spend a few days with Mr and Mrs Jerry Wheeler, former residents here. Mi- Wheeler was a rurtil rruiil carrier. Genevicve says this is not an established fact, this vacation spot, for Tom cornels home each week with a different place in mind, but the laterft he mentioned was Imperial. Who knows—they may vacation in Timbucktoo! Mlrs Nannie McMahoji and son Maulrice, go on an expended trip each. year. This yeyr it will be the St. Lawrence Wiver. I suppose that will merjn a river boat trip. Won't that be wonderful? The time has not. vet been decided. The Orval Joseph family plans to go to Minnesota later for sov- efal days of fishing. Mr and 'Mrs Harold Jergenson are so mVent on getting the three rooms avid bath added to their home c*j south Minnesota st., they ca,o hardly squeeze vacation plans into "already crowded minds and schedules. But come fall they muy decide to go to Milwaukee, or 'perhaps closer for a few days of quiet and relaxation. The children will have had vacation 'ere school begins. Becky recently returned from Milwaukee where- she had visited her grandmother and husband, Mr and Mrs Malt Schurek. Janet is going to Girl Scout camp, Krnt will go to Boy Scout camp, and the smaller boys will go to a church camp and the William Kuhn farm. The Kuhns are uncle and aunt of the children, so all the family will have had a change and something to talk about before thf> serious business of going back to school comes along. The G. M. Knecht family plans to spend several days at the Twin Cities in August." They have relatives there. Mrs Claris Kresensky and daughter. Alice, are on a trip west right now. I didn't get too much detail but as I understood it, they have zillions of cousins between (Continued On Page 2) Week-end Shopping!
