16-Alfl6na, (!o.) Upper Dm Molnw Thursday, August t8, 1966 P la y £ d continuously, and the beatnik crowd mingled with tourists, ODDS & ENDS Continued From P. 1 dress-up place. But the Challenger Inn, quite informal and less expensive, tits into a more modest budget and offers just about the same facilities as to rooms, In a sprawling combination of wings from a central village area. It is also around Challenger Inn that the small shops exist. The third area is the Chalets. These are more dormitory type accomodations, where groups of men or boys- or girls - may share bunk-bed style quarters at a very reasonable cost. At present there is a summer music camp being held here for high school musicians. We understand the fee is $600 per pupil, which includes the instruction, the accomodations in a Chalet, food, and access to the recreation areas — tennis, pools, golf, etc. You have a choice of cafeteria selection, or table service, in the Challenger area, from two places to eat. The actual room cost runs only slightly higher than an A-l motel; it's the incidentals you have to watch 1 * * * We have a second story room, two windows, and overlook the central plaza area, with the Sawtooth mountains in the background. There are no TV's in rooms, and no radios. But there are two set-aside TV rooms, where you can watch the monster if you so wish. I can see where TV's would be an unwise attraction here. There are no immediate TV stations, but cable TV does come into the area. However, Sun Valley has something usually cooking each evening, and if you sit and watch TV you're not going to attend the ice carnival, a movie, go bowling, see ahome talent summer theatre drama, take a horseback ride, or go on a hayride, all of which are available. We took in the ice carnival, and it's a real good show, with professionals headlining the routine in their own acts, but with local talent including employees worked into individual group numbers. Tom was in one act, a Little Abner number, and if we'djust had our double-runner skates along, might have volunteered also. Some of the rink instructresses here do make you consider taking skating lessons, however. Informality is the keynote at Challenger Inn, and the guests come in all shapes and sizes, with attire to correspond. There are a few that make you wonder if they got any ideas from Algona during Ridiculous Day. Nobody knows anybody else, so you dress as you wish and do what you want, just so you don't forget to tip. If you forget to tip you become what is known as a "Stiff" in employee terms you're dead but you don't know it! * * * Here in what is known as Wood River Valley, they have a host of sub-division real estate developments going on. Acres of sagebrush in the valley are staked out, and you have a lot of space to select from. And there really are a few new summer homeslaid out in various areas. If you just get water, you're all right, and can even have grass I There are mountain streams coming down, including one that runs right through Sun Valley itself, a fast-flowing brook that the golf course taps for keeping fairways and greens in shape. While we didn't play golf, we did rent a two-seated golf cart, and there is a blacktop road all around the course, hole to hole, which anyone can follow without a road map .... golfers are not supposed to drive their carts on the fairways, but follow the blacktop or along its edges. It is here - near Ketchum — that Ernest Hemmingway spent his last days, and he is buried in the Ketchum cemetery. Just up the road a half mile from Sun Valley we visited the recently-dedicated memorial to the American author .... the editor of the Atlantic Monthly made the dedication address in July. The area also has a newspaper called the Sawtooth Mountain Star - tabloid size, and printed offset. And there is one area radio station, which believe-it- or-not broadcasts, the Twins baseball games. * * * While there's nothing particularly exciting about Sun Valley's night life, there is quite a bit of action in Ketchum. We dropped in two spots one evening, the first a more-or-less interesting, run-of-the-mill, with a swinging five-piece band and beer by the pitcher. The second spot was something else. It looked like an old church and was called Leadville, and here a combo swingers, National Guardsmen, and a sprinkling of oddballs such as you read about, Espresso style. There was a young girl on the drums, a bearded colored gent playing an organ and mouth organ at the same time, a much- bearded fellow on one electric guitar and a shaggy-haired Jad on another one. Quite a place. * * * The airline strike has considerably reduced the usual guest list size, they say, which might be considered fortunate in a way. But it's quite a place for families; you turn the kids loose and have little to worry about. There is one spot on the grounds called "The Place" where nobody over 21 is admitted and the kids from toddling age up have it all to themselves with juke box, dance floor, soft drink fountain, games, and a pool table - so they tell me. * * * Famous Last Line — The best part of any vacation is thinking about it before you go, and telling about it after you get back I Householder Snares Fair Feature Win a guaranteed purse of $1,000 expected to lure some good cars. Householder had no trouble taking the feature following a re-start. He spun into the lead and lead-footed his way to the checkered flag, lapping many of the other autos. In was a fast drive - and a good one. Second place went to Jim Edgington and third to Dick Simpson as 13 cars started the event. Earlier in the night, Gene Schattschneider, Roy Peltz and Edgington took heat races, Edgington nosed to a narrow win in the trophy dash and Denny Hovinga won the B-feature. Most thrilling finish came in the trophy dash. Edgington trailed Simpson through the entire race until the pair came out of the last turn and Jim won by a few feet. Earlier, his win in the third heat came easily after a fast drive. There were several re-starts during the night, but damage to cars was not serious. • Len Pesicka, Jr. took the Demolition Derby title in the event that wound up the program.
