MONDAY. AUG. I, 1966 ALGONA (low*) ADVANCERS AIM STEM BY JULIAN CHRISCHIUII 'Twin Honored by SMi Helicopter activity at airport A BASEBALL GAME at Metropolitan Stadium sometimes offers much more than merely watching the game althougn the beautiful stadium has just about the finest lacilities anywhere for enjoying the sport . . . for instance, during a three-day stand there last weekend our family not only saw some good baseball but also tuned in on some sidelights. During Tuesiiay night's game, a man not too many rows from us hau an apparent heart attack and for 15 minutes or so, three persons gave him artificial respiration before doctors finally put him on a stretcher and carried him from the seats . . . and then there is always the inevitable announcement over the public address system that "Car i\o. such-and-such has its lights on, motor running — and all doors are locked!" The frequency of this announcement at ballgamcs leads one to believe that this is just a gimmick to put ians in a happy and laughing mood. Our second deck seats for the final game were right behind home plate, offering a wonderful chance for the boys to glove a foul ball . . . and no less than three came within 15 feet oi our seats but not close enough for a catch. The boys anticipate a diving catch but all dad figures on is a dive uncier the seats if a ball should happen our way! I sometimes wonder whether fans go to the games to see the game or to EAT! Middle son John is a fast starter in the food division and already had quaffed down three items before the game began ... his brothers, on the other hand, start slowly but build up their capacity in the late innings and we figure it is pretty much of a draw at the finish in the ice cream, pop, peanuts and hot dog race. (Oh yes, dad gets his share too). We can heartily recommend the Twins Motor Hotel and the Midway Motor Lodge midway between St. Paul and Minneapolis on University Avenue tor Twin Cities accommouations . . . they are located just across the street from each other but are under , the same management . . . although tliey are located far from the ballpark, it takes only 20 minutes to drive to the game whereas you should allow 45 minutes driving time for any downtown Minneapolis hotel or motel . . . both have swimming pools (one indoor and one outdoor) and both have excellent ainifcg and lounge facilities. Top tlight service, too! • Figuring three clays was enough for the Cities, we took a side trip up to Duluth for two more days and found this area to be fascinating and exceedingly beautiful ... we are told the late Bob James often spent a lew days every year at Duluth for relaxation and we can see why . . . located on Lake Superior, the world's largest lake, Duluth has much to offer for young and old alike . . . after exploring the many delights of the harbor, ships and lake area, side trips could incluue the North Shore urive which extends for 250 miles along Superior all the way to Port Arthur, Canada, or a trip east into Wisconsin to the Apostle Islands near Bayiield, Wis., which we decided upon. The Nat Bangs family of Algona were vacationing there and we thought it might be interesting to visit one oi these historic islauos, Lake Magdaline in this case ... a 15-minute ferry ride i\.om Bayfield across the bay to Magdaline was one of the trip highlights ... as we reached the dock at Magdaline, jve spotted Mat standing on .thjftdock waiting tor Jthe.-fferryiandiv were somewhat shockeu since we had only casually mentioned we might stop by for an hour or two and had not even told him what day much less what time we would come. He was just as surprised as we were though because actually lie was waiting ior his wife and family, not the Chris- chilles'. In tact, they didn't arrive until three ferries later but in the meantime, we had a brief tour of the island. We've been vacationing with the kids for seven years now and I don I think we have started a single trip without that familiar question from the youngest, in this case 8-year old Sara, as we pull out of the Algona city limits: "How much farther is it?" And by the time you arrive home you have unconsciously, memorized just exactly what flavor of milkshake each will order, what they will want on their hamburger and who wants french fries. What did the touring family do before the drive- in? Or the motel swimming pool? A friend told us once, referring to children, that "Once they've seen one pine tree and one lake, they've seen them all!" This is so true. Whereas mom and dad marvel over the beauties of a particularly enchanting view of the pines and lakes, the kids could care less. But recalling my own father's classic statement 25 years ago, "Get your heads out of the comic books and look at the mountains", we enjoy the scenery by ourselves and leave the youngsters to their own entertainments.

Q. I've been reading some increasingly pessimistic things about the stock market, that the economy is getting "overheated," that stocks are too high in proportion to their earnings. The whole point of all these articles seems to be that an investor should sell. Do you agree? A. No, I don't. I think on the whole maintaining one's investments is the best policy. We do have inflation, which is a part of our "overheated" economy, but inflation is a reason to stay in the market, rather than get out How can you stay even with climbing costs unless your in come has a chance of climbing with them? 1 can't agree that stocks are too high in proportion to their earnings. Certainly, some are Some stocks are always too high a certain number of investors invariably get carried away by the excessive publicity that is accorded to a few favored firms 1 But stocks in general show a i pretty sensible ratio of price tc earnings.

Right now more U. S. money is leaving the country than we have foreign cash coming in. A stepping-up of the war in Vietnam, or outbreak of a war any place else in the world would make this balance of payment problem more lopsided, and could precipitate a money problem harmful to investing. But consider this: If you were to sell your stocks, what would you do with the money? If the stocks of General Motors, or A. T. & T., or United States Steel are a "dangerous" investment, what would be safe?

The four top finishers in the championship flight all receiving prizes were Hayes, Benny Bennett, Chuck Moran and Bill Engstler. Participating in the championship fligiht 66-year-old Dr. J. B.' Harris, Sr., of Algona, stole the hearts of the spectators as he finished in fifth place. He nosed out his son, Dr. J. B. Harris Jr., an Algona dentist, by two strokes. Dr. Harris Sr. is retired but assists his son in his prac^ tice. He thrilled the crowd here Sunday, with 225 and 250 yard drives straight down the fairway continuing for three rounds of play, matching his younger competitors. Another old timer, though young at golf, is 69 year old Herman Dreesman of Algona, who has played the game only five years but was one of the fourth flight winners. There were 164 golfers participating in the all day tournament, played on a day perfect for golfing.

Keep one thing in mind: in investing, the general rule is that the higher the rate of return you receive, the higher the risk you are running with your money. It is difficult to get a higher rate of return in any stock or bond than you can obtain on a savings account without increasing your risk. There is, however, one thing that stocks do offer that is very important in our inflation slant ed economy. That is the opportunity for growth, both in the value of your investment and in increased income in the form of higher dividends. With your 'house free and clear, your social security, pension and medicare for health emergencies, you have your basic needs pretty well covered. Thus you might buy shares in a good utility or oil company with at (least part of your $10,000. You POUR GOODNESS BY THE GLASSFUL-MILK Family Milk delivers delicious flavor, nutritious goodness.
