So he checked the registrations at the court house and quickly solved the dilemna. The 1970 license plates were registered to of his " mh ° WaS attending Mankato sta *e College -the son * * * A LOCAL BUSINESSMAN made a rather sizeable wager he could lose 35 pounds- in a period of a Couple of months but as the deadline drew near, he found he was far short of the magic figure. , But it so happened that he was scheduled for surgery just a ! ..° r 1 W ° prlor to the ^ dead «ne- And it also so happened that his doctor put him on a strict 1,000 calorie diet during his hospital stay, He won the bet but the question is, did he lose the weight voluntarily or by necessity? He got paid anyway! * * * A BRIEF NOTICE In our Iowa Press bulletin last week brought a few chuckles from members receiving same. It seems the ladies and gents have individual stags the opening night of the convention in Des Moines and this year a "wine-tasting" event was scheduled to precede the ladies' dinner, Originally, the honorable Iowa press Director Don Reid, who is possessed of a keen sense of humor, had scheduled the wine- tasting to begin a 5 p.m. and the dinner to begin at 6:30 p.m. The 90-minute interval seemed reasonable, to Reid, who admittedly is no expert on wine-tasting. He reported in the bulletin: "But the nice lady who will conduct the clinic says I must be off my rocker to start wine-tasting at five unless we want the ladies to get stoned, which of course we don't, and besides they wouldn't anyway. • Hanging my head, I confess my error." The wine-tasting event began at six, which still seemed like plenty of time to get plenty of tastes. Don finished up his memorandum with, "For the men-fold, however, the beer tasting will begin at 5 p.m. as scheduled. I am on safer ground there." * * * THE BILL PASSED by the Senate abolishing JP, police and mayor's court is long overdue. Justice of the Peace courts, not only in Iowa but across the country, are archaic. Many set up in south and southwest states are merely used to bleed tourists out of money when they are brought inafter being nabbed in-"speed traps." Which brings to mind the statement of a JP some years ago ... he was ruffled because an accused asked for a jury trial. When we , asked him why, he, was adainant: "He's .guilty or he .wouldtft,. be: in here in the first place!" ' '"*.** ' •••'•••• MY BARBERS always have a gullible ear from this writer when they spring their funnies . . . "Soup" Briggs commented as he clipped the other day that they weren't selling beer at the Twins gajnes this year. "What?" I exclaimed. "I hadn't heard that. Wonder why?" "They lost their opener," said Soup. * * * Q. A. Bjustroms Travel 6000 Miles In 14 States Mr. and Mrs. Q. A. Bjustrom have returned after seven weeks of traveling In their camper for nearly 6000 miles, touring 14 states enjoying unequaled hospitality along with the warmer temperatures of the south. The Bjustroms left Feb. 8th, spending the first few days with their daughter, Jeanette and family, the Jon Petersons at Crystal Lake, 111. From there they visited near Macomb, 111., then drove to Carlyle, 111. to visit a nephew, the Ronald Har- lans. From there they traveled by way of Kentucky and Tennessee, but continued to follow just behind a snow storm in each state. While in Tennessee they spent some time at the Shiloh Battlefield where they visited the National Cemetery, noting the Iowa section. Many from Iowa gave their lives in the battle which was known as the turning point of the Civil War. A visit to the Pickwick Dam on the Tennessee River was next on the agenda and they watched extremely large barges pass through the locks. The Bjustroms spent a week in Mississippi and visited the Piney Wood School for a day. This is the first school started for .the education of the negro. Here they were invited to lunch and taken on a tour. One of the major oil companies is In the process of drilling for oil on the school farm. There is an enrollment of 300 pupils from all corners of the world. One surprising fact was that several children had come from Mexico to live at the school and attend kindergarten. All 300 of the students held a lively community sing following their lunch and were enjoyable to hear. At Jackson, Mississippi they toured the city and visited the Old Capitol building which is now a museum, The Representatives meet here and were in session at the time. At Lucedale in the southeastern part a visit was made to the Palestinian Gardens where a minister and his wife purchased a 17 acre plot and have built a replica of the lands of Palestine, digging the Dead Sea, Jordan River and Sea of Galilae, using a shovel and wheel barrow. True to scale buildings and mountains have been built by the couple who guide tours, and narrate the historical story of the Bible land. The Belllngrath Gardens near Mobile, Ala. Is another beautiful sight. The Bjustroms then spent the weekend on islands off the south coast of Alabama and found Fort Morgan, which has been fought from under seven flags, a very interesting place. After leaving the islands they visited the Gaylord Shumways who spend their winters in that area and learned that they, with Dr. and Mrs. Bourne and Mr. and Mrs. George Sefrit, had also visited Fort Morgan the same day as the Bjustroms. Traveling along the Gulf of Mexico, they went to Tallahassee, Fla. for a few days before going to St. Petersburg where they visited a few days with. the Cecil Bjustroms and Durwood McArthurs, who were vacationing, and the Ray Smiths, former Wesley area residents who now live in St. Petersburg. The remainder of their stay in Florida was spent near the Clearwater and Tarpon Springs areas. At Clearwater Mr. Bjustrom had his birthday dinner at the Kapok Tree Inn, a very large place and one of the only two of its kind in the United States. It is open for business at S p.m. each day and they serve from 4 to 5,000 people every evening. The inn is within beautiful gardens and marked by a huge Kapok tree for which the seed was brought here from India by missionaries about 100 years ago. The Great Stone Mountain at Atlanta, Ga. is the largest granite piece in the world. A huge carving is being done on the mountainside of three Civil War Generals, each mounted on his horse. To give an idea of the size of the carving, 'it was said that a picnic was held on the shoulder of one of the Generals and visitors are taken to the top by. cable car sky lift. The travelers viewed the still visible damage from the hurricane in Mississippi before visiting in New Orleans and its famous French Quarter. They toured the 3000 passenger ship, "President" and viewed many foreign ships anchored in quarantine before entering coastal waters. The largest shipping elevator in the world is also located here. After traveling west along the Gulf and through Louisiana to Texas, they turned north and when reaching Iowa, stopped to visit the Earl May and Henry Field. Seed Plants. At Oakland they visited the Donald Bjustroms and a niece, the Jack Thompsons at Council Bluffs. 6000 miles of good roads and not a scratched or bent fender, even after some heavy traffic. The Bjustroms were glad to be home. Many interesting places were visited and fine people met along the way, much poverty was seen and the way of life for many observed. •«. --The -Bjustroms haye -trailed nearly 30,000 milesliuring their' winter vacations of the past five years. This is not just an escape from the winters of northern Iowa, but is truly an educational review of early ancestoral history and the geography of the land studied in school, and no matter where you travel, many friendly, interesting and gracious people are met. Flower Land Ponce de Leon named Florida ' after the beautiful wildflowers growing there in abundance. Ice People Within the frigid Artie region live a million people, mostly Eskimos and reindeer herdsmen of Siberia and Europe. St. DIAMOND'S For Western Boots By Justin, T«x«, Wrangler.
