Warmers and plenty of blankets. I saw a different kind of hand warmer than I knew about in an ad recently. They could double for lighters-assured fire prooi and foolproof.

They were to go via plane from Mason, City. It takes ai least twelve hours via train to three via plane. A great difference when time is the essence. I HOthered she is not exactly "air minded" either. Trains are pretty comfortable and reliable, though I'm not arguing that planes arc- not safe. I just haven't gotten into the "swing" of them yet. i * • * * Cavanaugh and Cady—there's an Irish combination for you.
