ES E HERVIL JITOR V .E SITS BEACON CITY T e 11 s of Both The Hotel And The Cabin City. Adelaide Nichols, daughter of O. A. Nichols, publisher of the Estherville Vindicator & Republican, visited the world's fair the Beacon City Way, and on her return told about it in her father's paper. She had her choice between (Beacon City itself and the Beacon City plan at the Sheridan-Plaza hotel, and she took the hotel, but before coming home she visited Beacon Ity. The two plans are under the same management, the service 1 .he same, and the coat is the same The difference is in environmen nly. Stops at Sheridan-Plaza. 'Miss Nichols' story included an ccount of what she saw at th air, but only her comment on th Beacon City service is reprinted ere, as follows: "We attended the fair the Beacon City way, and it fulfilled all our expectations. At the last moment, in faet after getting on the train at Estherville my nephew and I decided to try thp new plan which Beacon City offers at the Sheridan-Plaza hotel one of the good hotels in up-town Chicago. A short walk from the La Salle street depot took us to a corner where we got a bus which carried tis directly to the door of the hotel. The elevated lines go directly from the station door to withini two blocks of the hotel, but our knowledge of transferring was too hazy to make it a welcome trip 90 early in our stay in the city. Follows the Beacon Plan. The Beacon way is an all-cost plan, and it provides a pleasant and carefree way of seeing the fair. After our arrival at the hotel all worry was taken from us. The first meal provided, the evening meal, ivas served in the hotel dining room. •The following morning, after a short talk by an authorized guide, 129 Beacon way guests at the hotel vere put on chartered busses and taken along the beautiful lake shore drive to the main entrance of the fair. Until 2 o'clock we were shown about the science building and the other buildings closest to the gate >y the guide, after which we were Iree to go back over whatever parts of the buildings we desired. Free Guide Service Dolly. •Instead of meal tickets at any particular restaurant, we were giv- :n '|1.10 in cash before leaving the lotel with which to buy noon and evening meals and for bus fare back to the hotel. After a day at the fair, the bus vas taken at the fair grounds enhance, und it deposited us at the ictel door. We were, of course, free o return to the hotel at any time day or night. This plan was carried out three days, the guide advancing through the buildings each day until the grounds had been covered. The last two days included in the tour are known as free days, when one may come and go at will. Admission to the grounds is paid for on five days, and on the last two days an extra dime is enclosed in the envelope. The last meal served by the tour is the Saturday breakfast. A conducted tour about the city is planned at a reasonable extra cost for all who wish to take it. Many took advantage of it. Visits Beacon City. On our last day in Chicago we made a special trip to Beacon City at the Indian Ridge country club, close to the intersection of the Lincoln and Dixie highways. This is a wooded section, and the cottages are placet! so each is in the shade of a tree, Oldtimera who remember the chautauqua grounds at the Oko- bojis would be impressed, as I was, with the similarity in atmosphere of the two places. At Beacon City the cottages are of wood, temporary of course, but especially clean because of the newness, with four windows, two on each side, with shutters that can be opened wide at night, and a door and two narrow glass windows at one end. Beacon City Shaded. In each cottage is a. double and a single bed, one at each side. There is a mirror,,stand, and wash jasin in each. Showers, lavatory basins, and toilets are in conveniently located separate buildings. There is also a central dining room, and a recreational hall for dancing and card-playing. A short distance down the road is the clubhouse, with its swimming pool, golf course, and such. We saw a number of world's fair camp sites along the way close to Chicago or at a distance. One in particular, I remember, was attractive in appearance; but there was not a tree in sight. •Beacon City had originally been planned for a point directly on the Lincoln highway, but was moved to a cooler location. Guests Are Pleased. I was at Beacon City Saturday, when most of the guests had started for home; but I talked with one woman, and she volunteered the information that she had had a delightful time. For all who want a quiet vacation camping trip, Beacon City is ideal; but for all who like the hotel way, nothing could be better than the accommodations offered by the Btacon City organization at the Sheridan-iPlaza, Gates at the fair are open at 10. While it may seem like a short day not to leave for the fair till noon, we found the town schedule of leaving from the hotel at 10 plenty fast. One is terribly tired at the end of the day, and a longer sleep than usual in the morning is welcome. If longer hours are de- Speaking of Gaa Taxes Federot 73* On June 1,1933 netax average.

"If the farmer gave his wheat or nothing, if the railroads hauled he flour for nothing, if the miller mWled his flour for nothing, 'bread rould cost the baker 4.2 cents a ound loaf." Government Cost Figures. A statement of thfe cost of ingredients from the U. S. commissioner, of labor follows: Costs as of December (1930) of all ingredients used in "bread, based on a ibatch of 428 loaves: Flour • $ 7.00 Sugar .092 Yeast .858 Malt .13 Lard . _• .60 Salt .35 Milk 1:584 Total . , ;__|10.€14 Loaf cost .0248 Interpretation of Figures. In this computation iby the commissioner of ilabor, flour is figured evidently at about IS a bbl. And the cost -per loaf on that basis coincides fairly well with the figures of General Mills, Inc., if the loaf referred to by the commissioner is a pound loaf. (From all this we gather that at 5c a pound 'loaf, with flour at the current price, we pay 100 per cent to convert flour into bread, and at 8c a loaf we pay about 223 per cent. lit also appears that for transportation and delivery we pay almost as much as the cost of the ingredients in the bread costs. From the statement of General Mills, Inc.. we gather that at current prices for flour a pound loaf contains about l.'6c worth of flour. Challenge to Bakers. 'I challenge the (Bakers association to produce a set of figures justifying their advance in bread prices based on the increased price of wheat. The price of flour lias advanced about $1.50 a barrel, but according to General Mills, Inc., figures this could add no more than one-half a cent to the cost of a sound loaf. [ Why should a city or town not bake its own bread? A baker can make as good bread In one town as in another. Ice cream "can b made as weDl at one place as an other. Yet we welch and baw about buying outside our own town where every merchant is beatlni his own 'little factory over the heai by outside buying. But we are on the way, and not even poverty wil turn our course, Inter Developments. Since writing the above it appears that at a meeting of the Iowa Baker's association recently ai Des Moines it was agreed by mutual consent to put into active op eration the resolution passed in May at Cedar Rapids by the Iow£ Bakers' convention. This appeared in the .Sunday :Des Moines Register The amazing statement is made In this article that a Des Moines baker says, "The 5 cent loaf, whether 8 or 16 ounces, is commonly referred to as the pound loaf." In other words a "pound loaf nay consist of either 8 or Hi ounces In the language of the baker. It is also stated that one store in Des Moines will sell 16 ounces of sliced bread for 5 cents, while another store charges 5 cents for 8 ounces and refuses to slice it. With a lot more of this same ex- ilanation the president of the Iowa 3akers association makes as plain is mud the reasons why the bakers have taken action to increase bread prices. Haugen Services Attended by 'Dick' Senator Dickinson and his secretary, Rex K. Nelson, spent Friday at Northwood, attending the funeral of Gilbert N.
