Brooke expect to leav.e Saturday for three weeks In the East. m OS [ They will visit Mr. Brooke's broth-1 world er in Boston, and a sister of Mr. Hodgepodgi Webster—A stew of rations Ingredients; a mixture. The toughest part of a vacation is the return, an endeavor to catch the strands of work after a two- weeks layoff. Things move quickly, and two weeks puts one behind on events, particularly in the newspaper profession, where it is most essential to be up with the Brooke who lives in England will meet them there.

California drivers have the unenvied reputation of being the orneriest critters on the road. It is said that they want only half the road, but that half must be squat down thy middle Meeting a line of cars there is always one or more which Is half In line and half out, and it's a safe bet that the out-of-line car carries a California license plate. er woman particularly seems to pick thos.e gowns which makes them resemble a cloud going over a mountain. ' . * * * * Unions are strong on the Pacific coast. For instance It was neces-» sary for the Kiwanis convention committee to h're a union pianist to sit and do nothing at $5 per hour when program numbers with their own accompanist were given. For Instance it cost the convention !|>5 for such a pianist to sit ten minutes while a mother played a piano accompaniment for her 11- year-old son 'playing a trumpet. * * * * In There Is n monotony in scenery the west, .strange as that may seem. There are mountains, It is true, but the long stretches of sage-brush country, uninhabited and uncropped, spoils the trip for the driver who must keep his eyes on the never-changing vista of " Y( »ing Folks" to Entertain— ONION LAD HIT BY AUTO HOME FROM HOSPITAL Union Twp., July 12—Henry C.

Instead of one string of mountains there are several ranges scattered helter-skelter. In between ranges are wide level valley areas. Washington and Oregon are mountainous, but would probably make the 'best place • for an lowan to live. The climate, believe it or not, is much superior to the much vaunted California variety, and the people are more sociable and less citified. Westerners honk loudly about the mid-western heat waves, but in the western valleys the heat is hotter than it is In Iowa, and there is seldom rain to break the monotony. On the coast the mid-westerner shivers with the cold. In San Francisco the "usual" weather does not get much above 70, and 60 is the average "in the shade" temperature. In Washington and Oregon, behind the mountain ranges that keep out the Pacific clouds, there s universal irrigation. Here rain s unusual and unwanted. In fact i ram raises heck with the farm- ng schedule, and causes old timers to shake heads over the crop situation. Irrigation permits water when and where it Is needed, and ram upsets the schedule * '* * * Water i s paramount in the west and water rights are more valuable than laud (and often human) ights. A -proposal to permit the ederal government to establish ams without the consent of the tate in which the dam was to be uilt, met with stern and uncom- romising opposition in congress •om western senators and repre- entatives. * * nothing interesting. There are beautiful drives in the hill regions, where the road winds among uncut pine forests that does make up for the monotony of driving between the hills. On the plateaus the roads are straight and stretch for miles without a curve, but in 'the mountains there Is one curve after another as the grade goes up or down. * * * * There is little concrete paving in the west. Most of the surfaced highways have "black-top" or oil roads, and they are universally good. Speed limits are reasonable, and in the open country the average driver keeps up a 60 to 65- mile gait, and even then is passed jy car s which must be going 75 to SO (and usually bearing California license plates). * * * * Had one occupant of the next tourist cottage ask: "Still think that Iowa is the hub of the universe?"
