Upp«r D«« Mdln«j-7 Lone Rock Mrs. Ruby HlncMcy, N«wi 47 From Burt On CCA Tour, K.C The three-day bus tour to Kansas City, sponsored by the Burt Co-op Elevator and the regional C. C. A. entertained 47 persons Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of last week. The large response made it necessary for a car to accompany the chartered bus to Missouri. The tour left Monday morning and visited the C. C. A. school and office buildings after a meal. That evening, everyone attended a major league baseball game in which Kansas City downed the Minnesota Twins. The second day featured a trip to : Lawrence, Kansas, where a tour was taken at a farmer-owned nitrogen plant similar to the one being built by the C. C. A. in Fort Dodge. The group also traveled to Muncie, where they toured a central mixing mill. Afterwards, they visited a research building and industrial complex where car batteries, grease and paint are made. This complex is housed in a warehouse that covers six acres. That evening, the visitors had their choice of attending cinerama, where "The Sound of Music" was playing, or the outdoor stage production of "Oklahoma" (which was interrupted by 'a heavy shower.) On the final day of the trip, the group visited the C. C. A. offices and then journeyed to Trimble, Mo., where they saw the research farm and paint testing laboratories. After a pleasant return trip, the group arrived in Burt at 10 p. m. Wednesday—concluding an entertaining and educational trip for all.

GroverFarm Fire Started By Lightning BURT - Burt Volunteer firemen answered a call to the Harold Grover farm about 2:30 a. m. Monday. Lightning had struck and entered the house through wires. Because the telephone was also knocked out, a neighbor, "Bud" Shipler, had to come to town to turn in the fire call. By the time the firemen arrived on the scene, Mr. Grover and his neighbors, the Shiplers and Pat Rasmussen, had the fire 'pretty well under control. The house was filled with smoke so the firemen stayed on the scene for at least two hours to be sure no flames would break out. No estimate of damage had been made at the time of this writing.
