Bret Barileii, son. of Mr and Mrs Wesley Bartlett decided he didn't think much of school and calmly announced to his parents, he'd had enough of it the first day.

And so far ."teacher" is perfection, • * * » Resuming art account of Ihe recent 'trip taken by the "Three Muskateers," Hazel Lusby, Lizzie Post and I. After 'seeing the Villa Louis we found a very nice moteJ, an equally nice place for dinner, and retired early, tired but con• tent with the day's happenings. We left for Davenport and there we were on .familiar ground and drove up to the \ Abner Long« around four-thirty o'clock. We took our luggage to our respective rooms and said, "Well, Here .we are, at home."

For me a trip to - Davenport would be incomplete without \ a drive over the,-bridges so we went to Rock Islafia; and back over the bridge near the ball park. We knew there was some activity there because of the lights. Qur curiosity was" sWsfted, for ori the returrv trip we could look from the high bridge right down into the field, A. game progress, a skimpy crowd scat-- t,ered over the ampitheatre. '•.We were urged to spend another day in D.ayenport but we* had laid pur plans''and Hazel was just .'.a bit anxious .to get hotne to Irene who had had an accident? just prior to our •, departure,/so with reluctance we bade, the Longs goodbye^Tuesday morning and were on our way to Moline to call on the Raymond Henrys, former Algona residents. - • By two o'clock we had said adieu and were on our way to the Dells of Wisconsin. : It is beautiful country, weeded hills, and one is aware Wisconsin is the dairy state, lor added to many herds of cattle seen grazing contentedly an lush pastures, were many creameries and cheese factories.

The way led through wooded areas, corn fields,'and then suddenly a clearing in-the woods where the, lawn was well clipped-in fact it was dry and a good rain was needed. A few tables and colored laWn umbrellas were scattered about and off at the far side was & brown two storied building near the Lake Delton shore. Steep steps led from the veranda to the water front. Lizzje and Hazel investigated things 'a little,, heard sounds from the kitchen, smelled hickory smoke (probably some meats being prepared for the evening meal) but the dining room was locked 'and apparently they were not taking care ot patrons at odd hours. This lack of hospitality led us back to town and lunch at Uphoff's, a very nice place. * » - ,* A farewell glance al everything and we were off to LaCrosse.
