Muhleman, superintendent of the Algona Methodist district, reviewed his recent trip to Washington. D. C., before the 'Rotary club Mar. 20. He drove to Washington four weeks ago to attend a convention of ministers opposed to repeal of the 18th amendment, and the Revs. C. V. Hulse, Algona, E. A. Pruitt, Emmetsburg, and W. A. Winterstein, Estherville, went with him. Mr. Muhleman said the party drove as far as Van Wort, 619 miles, the first day. The second day they went over the mountains ' and stopped in West Virginia with a brother of Mr. Muhleman. In the mountains they stopped at a lunch | stand and were amused when a j man offered them a drink of "wild Indian." .Mr. Muhleman said the other ministers smelled the bottle but that he watched them closely to see that they swallowed none. They reached Washington the third day, in the midst of the heavy traffic before the presidential inaugural. Mr. Muhleman got a reserved ticket for the ceremonies and was lucky enough to push forward to seats in the vice-presidential section. From this position he was able to take motion pictures of the inauguration at short range. The pictures, with others taken en route, will 'be staown to the club in April. He also got excellent pictures of the parade. Out of Washington the party made sidetrips to battlefields of the Civil war, and Mr. Muhleman gave a word picture of the Gettysburg battlefield.
