COUNTRY WRITERS RECOGNIZED Recent recognition of a Blue Earth, Minn., woman as the outstanding country correspondent of a newspaper not only brings recognition to that particular writer, but also calls attention to the many other unhonored country correspondents doing an equally good job on all newspapers in the United States. The Algona newspapers, with 24 active correspondents, have one of the largest staffs of country writers In the nations, far above the tverage number found in weekly newspapers. There Is no news like home news; these country correspondents bring to the press the heart throbs, the happiness, the sadnass, and the passing show of their community life, mirrored for not only their cwn people but for others to see, enjoy and appreciate. West of them write not for the small pay involved, but for the pleasure therein, and the chance to give their own localities a just position In the life of the general community surrounding them. Congratulation* to the Blue Earth writer, and a word of recognition for the hundreds of other country correspondents whose work la too infrequently honored. This Is the time of the year when road maps, cabin camps and the lure of the highway sneak up behind, crack you a hard one, make you look at your bank balance and ponder, and then Invariably cause you to decide all of a sudden that you, too, should go places and see things. Just as T. H. Chrischllles so lucidly proves, the urge to pack your belongings and your family. If any, into the old Jitney and get going, Is probably a hangover from the old days of the covered wagon and ox teams. And so, If yon are Interested in another travelogue with variations, and a minimum of rhetoric regarding the scenery which you can find out about from any guide book, we'll take a spin out west Tou know that old-time newspaperman, Horace Greeley, epitomized himself In the minds of men with his famous advice "Go West, Young Man, Go West" The only catch was that Horace himself never went west. He evidently believed It was good advice, though, and a good way to get rid of ambitious young Journalists by moving them out of his territory. Doe Bourne took his wedding trip out weet, and Ralph Miller told tall tales of Yellowstone and Salt Lake City, so thirsting to check up on their views, myself and the L. W. set forth, with temperatures reading like General Motors stock quotations. Detonrlng by choice Into Sioux City, we looked over the home town of Pat and Marjorie Jensen, then meandered into South Dakota. Yankton was the first stopover. You all know Yankton, and the House of Gurney. Well sir, this boy Gurney just about owns the town. He built a toll bridge across the Missouri, and although he advertises bis low prices over the radio, It costs about a half buck or so to drive your old can over his bridge Into Nebraska. Yankton had Just completed a Diamond Jubilee celebration. It opened on a Sunday, and tbe largest crowd of the whole fiesta arrived on that day. Arrangements had be«n made to have the carnival company, which is always the center of any celebration, show on the local college athletic grounds. The college Is a church Institution, and Sunday morning the trustees (thinking of endowment*, probably) decided the carnival could not exhibit there on Sunday. This gave the entire affair a poor itart, and it never fully recovered, although it was well worth taking in. • • • The mere thought of South Dakota sends streams of prespi ration down my back, and strong pity through my soul. South Dakota, in its limn days, drained oft its awamps, emptied its rivers Ir.to tile and as a result Is today probably the closest to a Hades on earth to be found outside of the Sahara or the Utah salt flats. We'll skip to the Black Hills. They, too, were hot! Rushmore Memorial Mountain is still there, for you folks who have seen it. They are going to add the profile of Teddy Roosevelt to those of Lincoln, Jefferson and Washington, when they get around to it, and if the money holds out. Past Sundance, Wyo., where a forest fire that made front page news, was smoking away. What a lot of balogney. though, about the danger to the town, and nil that. Sundance, itself, is a half mile or more from the forest, and how the fire could possibly have reached the town is still a mystery-but it made good reading. First real treat was the Big Horn Mountains, In western Wyoming. Their snow-capped tops made you shove the gas down another inch in an effort to reach them, while inside the car you kept telling yourself and your wife that it wasn't quite as hot as yesterday, all the time wondering whether you or she would be the first to succumb to the heat. And so into the mountains, arid a week of cool weather. The Big Horns are fine mountains, as mountains go. They have not had as much publicity as some other mountains, but some day the Big Horn Chamber of Commerce will come to life, and then there won't be standing room in them. Chalk down Tenslep Canyon as a place to see, if you're out that way. Yellowstone park is a conglomeration of geysers, mountains, cabin camps, cafeterias and a legal high-jacking joint sublet by the government to private parties. If you bring your own lunch and don't stay too long, you may be able to send a tel- egrf .n home for more funds. It costs to get in, and only the toothpicks and a look at the geysers are free. Breakfasts coat 80 cents, and the eggs are not gold-plated, either. But some more experienced travelers knew their stuff; they brought a trailer witb them, well stocked with provisions, and enjoyed tbe cool climate and nature's wonders at a nominal charge. Down through Idaho, across a corner of Montana into tbe potato and sugar beet country . . . Idaho Springs, along tbe old Oregon trail, into Poca- telio "Crossroads of tbe West," down into Ogden aad'tben Salt Lake City. You can't sink in Salt Lake, but you can in any of the other western lakes. At one point, the? were fishing for the body of a drowned youth. His 16 brothers and sisters and parents were also on hand. It seems he was subject to epileptic nts, and yet they let him go swimming. The Mormons are serious folks. They are convinced that their religion Is the right one (aren't we all). Our young guide through the Mormon buildings practically said it was. He even Justified polygamy by pointing out that Jesus Christ chose prohpets, some of whom were polygamlsts, and that If Christ thought it was all right, why It must be. We didn't know our Bible well enough to argue the point, but we thought It was well taken, and said so to the L. W. who promptly squelched the thought. • * * Up Echo Canyon, from whence eonwa Salt Lake's water, and out onto the southern Wyoming plains again. At Fort Bridger we made a night stop. Here, In a local tap room, a baker from Hollywood go- Ing west, and a newspaperman from Iowa, going east, argued roads, automobiles and states with vim and vigor. In the shadow of historical Fort Bridger. Most travelers fall to stop here. The fort Is off the road, and yet It Is probably as historic a spot as Wyoming offers. Here the Oregon Trail branched north, and the Overland trail veered slightly south. In 1850 It was the parting of the ways. There, covered wagons spilt up, never to meet, again. The historic fort still stands; Its Pony Express stable Is Intact; the quarters for the garrison, the low stone wall, and the guardhouse are there for your scrutiny. Named after Jim Bridger, pioneer scout and wanderer. It is a monument to his memory. He was one of the real pioneers. "Tis said that he married a Ute Indian girl, thus became friendly with the Utes and won that triBe** friendship so that early settlers could pass safely through their lands into the far west * • • Through Laramie, Wyo, and Into Colorado, the Playground of the Nation. At Estes Park the crowds were divided Into two groups, one following Governor Landon around, and the other trailing Clark Gable, so our own arrival waa greeted with about as much enthusiasm as the new tax bill In Wall Street However, Rocky Mountain National Park Is the clear dope. Crossing a wonderful new road, the motorist travels for 10 miles above the Umber line, looking down on snow. Just 40 miles to the east are the Great Plains—temperature 107. In a circle tour through the Colorado Rockies one can see within 300 miles, dozens of mountain peaks, go through three passes, see the west portal of the Moffat Tunnel <6 miles under the Rockies), and the old mining cities of Colorado. Within five miles of Central City, Colorado, they say 125 millions In silver and gold have been shipped out That's almost as good as an Iowa corn crop. Central City had dozens of old buildings packed with stage coaches from pioneer days. Their open air opera was soon due to open. At Boulder, Colorado, we looked up A. E. Laur- itiron, Ledyard superintendent, going to summer school at the U. of Colorado. He took us on a trip up Flagstaff mountain, after dark, and If he ever wants a Job driving a bus In the Swiss Alps, we'll: recommend him. He must have figured he was driving that Ledyard team of his to another championship. But, we all came back safe and sound, and mighty glad to have taken the trip. Fromi the top of the mountain, In the early night, you see the lights of Boulder, almost at your feet (only about 8,000 feet down), and far In the distance 1s Denver, 40 miles away, lights quite visible. A western Romeo was singing songs of the cowboy to an assembled group in a natural stone amphitheatre, with hundreds of mflea of plains stretching out below him, and a mountain as a back rest It waa some sight. Denver l» a beautiful city. We somehow «r other visited the Conoco Travel Bureau and the Museum of Natural History—quite a combination. In the former they were stuffing maps Into- folders for other humans »1th the wanderlust; in- the- latter they had already done their stuffing, and; everything from an African ant eater to a skafeton of old Dippocoles, a giant ancestor of the elephant greeted you. We'll just skip the rest of Colorado and moat of Nebraska. It Is Just about as you thought It was, flat, dry except for Irrigated spots, and tbe tendency was to get over It as fast as possible. There is one common falling among all of us, loyalty to the old home state. In Rawlings, Wyo., I listened to a speech from a former lowan at a Rotary luncheon, extolling the virtues of Wyoming. In Idaho, a filling station salesman told us how many products the soil would grow. In Colorado and Nebraska they thought nature had reached Its peak when it carved *nt their respective states; we kept mum and said nothing, but we couldn't agree with them.

Dear All: As you can probably ten by the cards you hare received, it's quite difficult to say much on them. At any rate we're Jost back from our bicycle trip ot over a hundred miles, in fact, we Jjartgnt to at 8:00 and It's eleven now. However, in that hundred miles you would be and will be astounded; when I tea you all we saw, We left London, Wednesday morning after more than tbe usual trouble in getting, off, and witb rented bicycles- that cost 2 and 6 » day, we went to Henaiy on the Thames, where the boat races wer* In progress.

In Nebraska, the owner of a cabin camp once farmed near Marshalltown, and so It went But all vacations must end. The climax came upon arriving home. On our desk we found two cards, one that we had sent to the boys on the paper, and another addressed to us. It was from Burdette Agard, and was from Yellowstone Park. The card he had mailed, and the one we sent back, were both mailed at 11:30 a. m , July 12, from Fishing Bridge Station, Yellowstone. Agard and our selves must have been within a block of each other, and neither knew the other was out there, so you see, it IS a small world. Yours for Travel—Rusa Waller.

We got oar rooms In. a little' place over 400 years old. near Christ Church- ooP- lege for 6 bob (shillings—$1.50>, and incidentally In England your night's lodging Includes breakfast Oxford: is. Different: Oxford is as different from Am> ericatti colleges as eastern ones are from the westerni ones. All of the colleges comprising the university are in the one- town, but each is a separate university in itself: The architecture Is similar to Yale or vice versa, a creamy stone- and: small leaded! windows. This was the first place we-had seen, cobblestones. The dormitories are Intertwined- with narrow little cobblestone streets maybe 10 feet, across. Outside- of the university, Oxford holds very little-attraction; Thursday we left Oxford early in the morning in the rain, with Stratford on Avon our goal. Eight miles from Oxford is a little town called' Woodstock, which In about the size of Whittemore, and the Duke of Marlborough bas bis palace here, built in 1T05 on a grant given him by Queen Anne In 1705 for his victories over th* Austriansi etc., at the battle- of Blenheim front which, the palace gets Its name. The palace cost 240,000 pounds. Though not In ruins, It Is terribly run down. It is built with a large central part and two aide wings, quite like the- architecture at Versellles. In front is a ruined though still uaabls- bridge) and then still in the same line- is a tall column dedicated to John. Duke of Marlborough. Moat Beautiful: Betting Fran there we bicycled to a place called Com plan Wyviates* where one of the beat examples of the old English manor bouse Is stilt kept up. You first see Compton from a high hill, i* Is down In tbe valley and a striking sight with. Ka Dutch gardens all trimmed w&h peacocks, etc., and perfectly set off «y wonderfully green grass that grows evrywhere over here because of the damp cHmate. In any case, Campion is owned by the Marquis of Nottingham. It baa ftv* doors, 365 windows. 42 different chimneys, banquet, crimson, green, dressing room, and chapel and dining room. Queen- BItimbeth visited both this aroE KenSworth castle, which we saw- later £n tbe afternoon, on her celebrated trip. Warwick was left Intact during the dvll Wars because It waa parliamentary. The crimson- ami green rooms contain some superb paintings by Van Dyok, Rubena, etc. The celebrated original of Henry VTH Is here, too. One room has the bed, trunk, etc. of Queen 1 Aim- although she never visited Warwick. There are some 700 acres of grounds and peacocks everywhere- yon look. The young Earl, so trie guide told us, Is quite a ire'er^db-weTf, leaving the guards, etc: It was started in the 10th century. Castle in Ruins From Warwtek we went to Kenll- worth famous In Scotland. Kenll- worth; unlike Warwick, was Royalist and' so Is in ruins today. It s built In three sections with an openi court in the middle of the formed IT. The right part was a keep started In 1100 or so. Its walls are 141 feet to 16 feet thick and built of sandstone which probably added to Its poor weathering. The left side was built by the Duke of Leicester In 1500 and was used by Elizabeth on her visit. In the back IS the targe banquet hall, and a few prisons. Only the wine cellar remains below and the hall Itself, and a circular stairs leading up. Kenllwortn was surrounded partially by a huge lake and the rest by moat. WTien Elizabeth was there a huge- water carnival and tilting on the- miyard, which is near tbe gate- were means of entertaining her. Shakespeare was supposed to have- got material for A Midsummer Night's Dream at this place wnen- Be was 11. Kenllworth Is so ruined that it Is hard to gather the correct Impression from the ruins themselves. From there we took our train Into London, they really roll here, too. We left Leaning- ton at 8:30 and were In London at 8:00, and I believe it's well over a hundred miles. That completed our tour of the English country, whicb countless people and kings and Queens like Elizabeth, M^ary of Scotts, James T, DC, Edward X, H, etc. It contains the trowing cnalr, a chair, a terrible- looking old thing, carved, initialed and built around a stone slab called the "atone of scone." It dates back to past TOO. It -.M.S taken 6yi the Ertglisft from the Scotch who used it f or ttre same purpose, who in turn took It from the Irish, so it has a fabul&tss history. Edward wfll be crowned In May on this some seat, bare and homely as it is. It's lovsljr just to sit there and I6ott way up' Unto the grey on the inside and really a beautiful thing in its way: m be able to tell yon- of these- things heaps better than I can write of them. It's next to impossible to do in less than a volume anj this is almost a small one.

The man was dead when picked up. Hughes was kept in jail nine hours (that is, "detained" by the sherig) and dismissed by a judge without bond, pending further investigation. The jail physician who gave him a test for sobriety reported that he had been drinking but was not drunk. A woman companion disappeared and has not been found at the time this is written and Hughes will not tell who she is. • • • No Seduction in Taxes Sac Sun: Credit Nels Kraschel for one thing, and that is that be promises no reduction in taxes even though he is elected governor of the state of Iowa this fall. Kraschel has promised no reduction; in fact, he has said that a reduction is an absolute impossibility. And so it U. How can tbe American public expect taxes to become less as long as the administration continues to spend money so foolishly? When folks are satisfied to live on relief and the few who are willing to work must support the idle, how can we expect taxes to be lessened? Before it will be possible to reduce taxes the whels of progrss must start moving. The idk) must be put to work, and they must be made to produce. As long as there is unemployment there will be high taxes for thoae who are able to pay then*. etc., representing days, years, etc. Coming down the hill to the manor house you pass three rows of battlements dug by Oliver Cromwell during tb* Civil war, but to no avail, when he aimed down at the house, the balls would roll out of the cannon and when he'd aim up he would over shoot, so the house still stands today. The gardens, however, seem, to make the place which otherwise looks like any other large English place with small leaded windows. It probably is the moat beautiful setting I've seen in my life. From there we bicycled to Stratford on Avon. Our Biggest Day Friday waa probably our biggest day. We got our bed and breakfast for 4'6—$1.12 and then lookec over Stratford. The three main places of interest are Shakespeare's house, Ann Hathaway's and John Harvard's mother's house. We went through Shakespeare's and Harvard house, the latter admission was free because of my being a student there. You've seen pictures of the exterior of both Shakespeare's and Ann's place and I simply can't describe them as well as I'll be able to tell you of them with cards and photos. The interior of Shapespeare's house La very crude, the same floors, etc. On one of the windows you can see Feeie's, Carlisle, Pitt, etc. signatures. Harvard house though small U well kept and of betttr material than Shakespeare's. The windows bottled glass which bas been scraped of about thirteen coats of paint. Medieval Scenes Reviewed From Stratford we went to Warwick where the famous castle la still in use by tbe Earl of Warwick. It costs 2 bob and is well worth it It is in the center of Warwick and surrounded by a high wall. You pas* up a road of huge standalone blocks and shaded like „,„', tbe red-woods. Then you come to; tbe castle. It bas two towers on each end of tbe front wall and a minster Abbey and London Bridge* and the Tower of London, also beard Big Ben strike 4:00. At 10:30 every morning they change the guards for both Buckingham and St. James' Palace, which even the English themselves fail to tire of. It's * big show, in itself. In the front of Buckingham, inside of the fence, is a gravel yard where they change, so to apeak. There are two bands and two groups of guarda in their showy cardinal coats and black head gears. They march up and down and drill for almost an hour much to the delight of the lineup, then they march off, half that is, to the time of "Old Black Jo«" around Queen Victoria's statue to St. James. VUkts London Tower London tower is farther up, the Thames in the section of town known to the Romans. Black plague, etc. It isn't really a tower but rather a group of keeps, armories, etc. It was originally used as a keep. It a made up of white tower, the main and largest building of the group, which contains the substance of a royal museum, swords, pikes, armor, cannon, etc. The armor of Henry V7II U in tbe Tudor room here. He, incidentally developed from a amall fellow at middle age to a big boy, as bis two sets of armor show. There are three or four other towers but ol very little value. Tbe moat important thing here are tbe crown jewels. The crowns of George Mary and Victoria, together witb countless salt cellars and other gold articled are on di/,play. Tbe one crow ol' George bas a dlamonc CulHoas or something, of 896 carats. It is a beautiful thing. They are on ermine and pillows of tbe Royal Blue. Thus London Tower could easily have been a castle. It la a group of buildings, called tow " surrounded by a dry mcaJ Thames supplied. nposslbie to Ptetai* Westminster Abbey like all the th t ttot gate bouse and working porticullia at tbe bridge, although tbe moat U dried up.
