Kossuth Men Visit 6 So* American Countries Schenck, Hanna Cover A Lot Of Territory You don't hare to be able to speak Spanish to get around In South America - but it could help, especially if your car breaks down out in the country, as it did with Alfred Schenck, Algona farmer, and Everett Hanna, Lone Rock farmer, who enjoyed nearly a month of travel there in February. They Joined a farm study tour which originated in the Dakotas, sponsored by the Dakota Farmer magazine, but with four lowans In a group of 20 on the tour. They visited Panama, Brazil, Uruguay, Peru, Argentina, Chili and Columbia, leaving Omaha by air Feb. 2, and arriving back there Feb. 27. They left Omaha with the temperature sub-zero. That evening they were basking in 80 degree temperatures in Panama. 3 DAYS IN PANAMA The group spent three days In Panama, visiting the famed locks, and a sugar mill, among other things. Ships passing through the Canal pay tolls of $7,000. From Panama, the group flew to Brazil, landing at Sao Paulo, fastest growing city in the world. This was a 12 hour flight, and their longest non-stop. This city manufactures 20 different makes of cars. From there they went to Santos, coffee capital of the world . . . BUT NEVER SAW A LIVE COFFEE BUSH. The coffee, they added, was so strong you couldn't drink It, so they knew there were some live coffee bushes around. Another stop, via air, was Brasilia, the new capital of Brazil, where they had dinner, and the next flight took them to Rio Di Janeiro, the old capital. This was a stop of some length, and side trips were made to Sugar Loaf mountain, the Botanical Gardens, Jockey Club race track (about which neither man said much), and other points of interest, including the 75 ft. statue of Christ the Redeemer which overlooks the beautiful harbor. They found the people generally very friendly, and anxious to try out whatever English they knew, both on the ground and in the air. The group flew via a variety of airlines, including American, South American and Canadian Pacific. 6~A!0ona (la.) Upper Bit Molnei Thursday, April 21,1966 ALFRED SCHENCK Their interpreter most of the way was a former California exchange student, who when asked how he liked Americans replied: "We don't, but we like your money." PRETTY WIDE RIVER Enroute to Montevideo, Uruguay, they crossed the widest river in the world, 180 miles wide, the River Platte. In Uruguay they found agriculture quite well organized, and ran across a crew of 10 from Iowa State doing soil work. This part of the trip took them into agricultural sections, which they enjoyed. By air they flew to Buenos Aires, Argentina, where the stop included motor tours and a lunch trip up the Tigre River, and Great River Platte delta, which took 40 minutes to fly over coming in. They visited an Argentine stockyards and saw the real gaucho in action - the South American cowboy. The yards had many fine looking Herefords and Angus, and were selling for 15 cents a pound, all for export. Monday and Tuesday are meatless days in Argentina so that more beef can be exported, they discovered. The meat can be laid down in New York City for 18? a pound, and Alfred said he thinks the import of beef from South America is far more of a threat for the American cattle feeder than any giant feedlot development in the states. Santiago, Chile, was the next stop, and here the group were guests at the farm of a Wm. Barros, in Curacavi, who had imported American dairy cattle and visited in Wisconsin.

EVERETT HANNA wished to repay some of the courtesies he found on that trip, and had a bountiful meal for the group. He grew about 200 acres of corn, irrigated some 200 acres of alfalfa with 11 cuttings a year, and was a user of big machinery. CAR BREAKS DOWN It was in Peru, after the group had landed at Lima, and started on motor tours Into the countryside, that Alfred and Everett got lost and had car trouble. The two men, with a Mrs. Kaupf from Omaha, were assigned to one car, and all vehicles were to meet along the way. Then their car broke down, out in the country. Alfred and Everett hiked up the road - and of all things - found an American who originally came from Detroit, Mich., running a fish hatchery. He helped get their car running, and despite their efforts, neither local man was able to find out just why this man from Detroit was tucked away on a backroad in Peru. They caught up with the rest of the party in time for lunch. VISIT LOST INCA CITY One of the most exciting parts of their trip came on the next lap. • They flew in to Cuzco, 12,000 feet up in the Andes mountains, the Lost City of the Incas, discovered in 191.1, being a short distance from there. They took a bus and also a narrow gauge railroad in making the final part of this trip, before going back to Bogota, Columbia, their next stop. Leaving Cuzco, their plane barely got off the ground. The air strip was not paved and it had rained. Here they found some real anti- American feelings prevailing, and received hostile service along the way. However this did not stop them from viewing a display of Inca gold wrought into many precious articles, and visiting an underground salt mine. From Bogota, the group left by plane for Miami, Fla., the morning of the 26th of February. They transferred planes and were in Omaha that evening. There they decided to come on home, and got back In Kossuth county about 6 a. m. on Feb. 27. Bogota, Columbia, to Algona in just about 24 hours.
