Algona, (la.) Upper DM MoSne* Tuesday, July 19, 1966 don smith OUR crew, mom. dad and three children, spent the hot July 9-10 weekend at the Twin Cities and for the .first time in years, didn't attend a Twins baseball game or Viking football game. Those are the events that usually are tbe basis for such jaunts. Had a lot of fun, though, even if it was hotter than you know what, and as usual, found many things of interest in that metropolitan area. THE air conditioner in our nice room at the Holiday Motor Hotel in the Golden Valley area wasn't working anywhere near capacity, but we were assurred a new central unit was being installed and cooler facilities guaranteed for guests soon. It's always been plenty cool (even in hot weather) at the Holiday before, so know they had a problem of some kind. Our oldest lad, Dan, spent a lot of time in the pool Saturday (between jaunts here and there) and about 9 p. m., mom, Dan and Bill, our youngest lad, went for a dip until they were ousted at closing time. Meanwhile, dad was a sitter with Martha, who at nearly nine months of age seemed to want to take a swim, too. EARLIER in the evening, three drag racing cars were pulled in on the big CMC* school parking lot next to the motel - and we got a good chance to look them over. Some machinery. A regional drag race was being held at Minnesota Dragways Sunday, and qualifying events were held Saturday. Many drivers and mechanics were staying at the motel. We got the opportunity to chat briefly with one driver, Lyle Ottosen, Fargo, No. Dak., who spends all his time in the racing game. He is employed by the Ford dealer at Fargo, drives the dealer's super- powered Mustang at weekend events practically every week, and does the mechanical work on the vehicle the rest of tbe week. Suppose the appearance of the car - a nice looking white one with nifty blue racing stripes and all the other decals, etc. usually found on race cars - is good advertising for the dealer. Lyle told us the car could hit 170 miles per hour, so didn't ask him to take us for a ride (he couldn't have, anyway). A large field of cars from a very wide area competed in the contest Sunday, One crewman from Colorado took a dive into the pool Saturday evening with a can of beer in bis hand (with his palm over tbe openings), rolled over on his back and drank it right there. Seemed like a fine bunch of fellows. WE always visit Southdale Shopping Center and are awed by Us vastness, This time, we also visited one of the Target stores - a string of discount houses (with five in tbe Twin Cities) that feature everything from soup to nuts, Tbe one we visited must have bad 20 check- out counters, with one designated "express". Couldn't quite figure that out until an announcement came of the P. A. system telling customers they could use that one if they had less than six items to check. The store's P. A. system buzzed constantly with buying suggestions to customers - and while one telling of white shirts for $1 definitely interested us, couldn't have made it to the right department in time, anyway, there was such a rush. ANOTHER spot we generally visit is the big airport - and this time we got tcr see pickets on duty, due to the nationwide airline strike. Not all airlines were struck, however, so there was an occasional jet zooming off the runways. Never will fail to marvel at those big babies taking off, I guess. That's an awful lot of machinery to put into the air. The pickets weren't unfriendly,, -athough we didn't ride by aad shout anything at them (most were real big), or suppose they might have been able to give a person all the trouble they wanted. Seemed to be walking in twos and threes with placards painted in red and we'll bet they worked in short shifts due to tbe heat. Didn't see any resting, and they were all over the place. OUR trip home Sunday afternoon was a hot one. Our only air conditioning in the car is open windows - so believe me we had them all open, including the rear one in our wagon. It was 98 degrees when we passed the Thunderbird Motel near Met Stadium at 3:10 p. m. and I think that made us all sweat a little more. Stopped at St. Peter, where we ran into about a two mile detour due to a parade and celebration, for cold drinks and when we got ready to start out again, the starter on our bomb wouldn't work. A friendly gas station operator, who knows Ed Wolf, Coast-To-Coast owner here, straightened out our problem and sent us on our way. THE variety of dress (and undress) in the Cities never fails to draw a visitor's attention and with all the hot weather, I think the variation was greater this trip than ever. We'll bet every type of shorts, shifts, etc. sold anywhere were seen by us on this trip. And just as is true here, some can wear anything - others can't! Too bad the ones who can't don't.

The bulk of the plastic balloon is a spectacular sight as it hangs from a tree and forms a perfect picture of a waterfall. LEGAL NOTICES TOOK the baby everywhere with us and she got lots of looks and comments. Perhaps the one that gave me the largest charge was from an elderly lady at Southdale who growled as she pushed her way past some teenagers to get off an elevator, then looked at our gal and said, "Oh, you sweet thing." Then went on her way to shop.

Connie's Column by SPICY ADVICE Spices age, just like the rest of us! Never just add to a jar. Empty it, and start in fresh. Keep spices out where they can be seen and used, but not where the sun comes in strong through the window. And don't leave a spice can opened, even when you're rushing to concoct a special dish! Imported oils slip away when spices and herbs are exposed to the air—and with them goes the flavor. SHERBET SUPREME PAINTING POINTERS Mrs. Robert Smiley of Minneapolis, Minn., paints every- other-step right up the stairs, and lets them dry. The young Smileys simply take the steps two-at-a-time for 24 hours. Then she paints the other set. Pretty clever, huh? She also ties big plastic bags over the light fixtures, so ceiling paint won't splatter over them. And she paints a stripe on the outside of the paint can, so she knows the shade when it's time for touch-ups. CAMPFIRE SING Group-singing gets folks sentimental 'round a Summer campfire! Follow National Rotary Club rules to organize it: Choose a peppy, strong- voiced leader. Start with a song everybody knows. Include "oldies" and new ones! To make sure nobody's too shy, encourage loud singing! Don't start till the meal is finished—and stop after approximately a dozen songs. Otherwise, some of the group will tire. SELECTIVE SERVICE Gas lights repel flying insects ... but how they do draw compliments! Place one near your patio, so guests can admire your garden in its pretty glow. Many happy gas light purchasers are now ordering seconds and thirds, for other spots around their home. It's nice to have a light you needn't turn on at sunset... nice, too, to know they cost so little to operate. See the After an outdoor feast, you'll want to keep dessert simple. Try decorating glasses of orange sherbet with slices from a quartered and peeled orange. Now sprinkle flaked coconut lavishly on top. You'll have a quick-fix kind of ambrosia. And that, you'll remember, was the favorite dessert of the gods. HEATING HINT Have you given a thought to winter lately? You should— and I'm not balmy from too much July!
