July 25,1957 GRAND PRIZE 5 PLYMOUTH Cuitem Suburban* Jflgona tapper Beg ftloinrs My 25, M57 A vacation it supposed io be a time when we get away from it all. At our house, a vacation is a time when we take it all with us. We plan to leave for the north woods by Saturday morning and from the boxes, suitcases and piles of clothing around here we'll be lucky to find room in the car for the kids. * * * 1 don't know what our family would do if they were faced with one of those, What Would You Take With You In Case You Were Stranded On A Desert Island? problems. In most of these hypothetical cases the list of ten absolutely hecessary items rarely eceeds five, Nobody in our family could pare his list down undef a hundred. I fear I am one of the worst offenders. Firsi item t insist upon il tny typewriter. You'd think I'd be glad to get away from it fof a while wouldn't you? But all yeaf I save up writing projects fa do while on vacation and somfetimes I get some accomplished. These's more time to read, too, so 1 pack a bunch of books and what magazines I haven't as yet got around to reading. The family has to take every bit of warm weather clothing we own plus one cdld weather outfit in case — happy thought — it turns chilly. Then because the clothes never hold out for more than a few days without washing I have to pack along the steam Iron. * * . * x ^ , , There are plenty of pots aad pahs at the Algona Outfng Club cottage where we'll be staying, but I like the way my automatic frvn Pan cooks fish. I might as wen take the pressure cooker also. There are adequate grocery stores nearby but I don't trust strangers to grind hamburger so i [I freeze up some and take it. ine bone from a picnic ham goes good in bean soup and we have to have bean soup So there's another item. Eggs are sometimes scarce up north so it's four dozen from home and we'd better get aown lo the garden to pick some vegetables. • * * Maty Ann has recently started to learn, to play the flute so we have to take the instrument along so she won't get out of practice. Are we ever lucky she didn't decide to play the tuba ! Jeanie would like to take her bike but she's going to hare to settle for an old innertube to use while swimming. Bill has been stocking up on fisning equipment and he's anxious to try every last bit of it at Cass Lake. Father's needs in the clothing department don't take up milch space but he more than makes i**> for it by putting the boat motor in the trunk. » * • • I have been thinking with covetous thoughts about Dick Post's moving, van. It seems to me it would be the perfect vehicle to take on our vacatiori. But father is Vice President in charge of Stowing the Gear and I'm betting money he'll be able to get everything in. At least he always has. this year I've tried to b« viry efficient about getting ready to go on our vacation. No more of that old helter-skelter scurrying at the last minute for this one! The thing to do is to be calm, plan ahead and make Lists. I made one headed Things To Do About The Centennial, one labeled Things To Wash, another, Things To Do At The Church and Things To Write For The Paper. I made one titled, Errands To Do Before Leaving, one, Don't Forget To Buy ahd one, Remind People To—. The only trouble is, I lost the Lists. * « * 1 started out pretty good on Monday. Father had casually mentioned that he was going to have to break down and have some pants cleaned so I decided to surprise him with my efficiency and send them without being asked. But was Pop grateful for my thoughfulness? 1 should say not! In my zeal I had yanked the wrong pants off the hangers — one pair was so old they weren't worth cleaning, the other were strictly wash trousers. • • • Since it didn't seem economically safe to include a new bathing suit under the list of Don't to hunt my old black one. While it is not true that this suit has knee-length bloomers, the thing has seen better days. To find it I had to open up that Black Hole of Calcutta we call the storage closet, the state of which always makes me a little nauseated. It didn't fail to do so this time for besides the bathing suit I found two partially decayed apple cores, a mouldy orange peel, a glass xvhich once held chocolate milk and a half box of oyster crackers. Where but at our house can you find people who picnic on a box of rags in a dark closet? t notified the milkman to stop delivery but I was a little premature and we've been, buying our milk supply at the grocery store for two days now. Notifying the paper boy was a bit more difficult for we've been having a new one whose name I never did get around to ask. But in the course of phoning for local items, the' mystery cleared up. Our paper boy is Mary Bartlett! Her son Bill is due lo take over the route from the temporary bby but Bill is away at camp. So Mary is up very early every morning, out on a bicycle delivering papers, • » * It would be nice to be a world traveler. If I could afford it and if I had the time I'd like to see Paris, fly down to Rio, hula in GAMBLES MAIL ORDER DISCOUNT CATALOG Savings fkjfMff on Hundreds up to m W\f /O of Items COME IN AND SAVE GAMBLES DISCOUNT WAY ICE CREAM SCOOP Reg. 1.59 Use for Ice cream, potato salad, mashed potatoes, Colorful plastic handle. - NEWFOLEYl CAN OPENER' 2.98 1 Value Magnetic hand type opener.
