Only one day of storm marred the whole trip, but passengers were not made seasick, because of the size of the boat and mechanical devices wlileh stabilize it.

There were 14,416 , persons who visited the -local park that nonth.

But illl 'the~pfjce "of "grain 'discourages these corporation guys, one or two theorists like myself cannot change the order of things. There's one sure Ihlng, Ihere's going lo be a 'helavu' big change in the economic order in the agricultural world within the next few years. "I have absolutely no faith in the corporation type of farming. It is bad for the country, bad for the farmer who owns and operates his farm, and it increases unemployment.
