NOW THAT RANGER 8 HAS sent earthward the scientific bonanza of more than 7,500 close-up pictures of the moon, I predict that soon a whole new territory will open up for tourists rivaling California, Texas, Arizona and even Florida! In the future, people will spend their long-time savings not on a trip around the world, but on a trip out of this world. Vacations will not be spent in high-life but in a rarified atmosphere and newly-married couples will take for their wedding trip, a journey that is literally a honeymoon. - o - OF COURSE, MY PERSONAL PLANS for a journey only go as far as a" bus trip to Algona this summer and I'll be lucky if 1 get that, but I'm saving for it. However, it is not out of the realm 6T~ possibility that someday" I may Tx putting aside my dimes and nickles for a week's vacation at the Lake of Tranqullity on the moon just as we once did for our trips to Lake Okoboji or Cass Lake. -o- NATURALLY, THERE ARE A FEW details to be ironed out such as whether or not any parts of the moon are strong enough to support the weight of a landing, and what kind of craft will be safe enough for human passengers. But if 1 can figure out ways to scrounge enough out of the household budget for my trip to Iowa, scientists with all their training, should be able to lick the problem of moon travel. -o- AFTER ALL, IT WASN'T TOO many years ago people, (Jim Murtagh in particular) were saying what was supposed to be a funny slogan—"If you are going to Europe—Go by boat!", because naturally ships were the only method of getting there. Then the airlines started taking overseas passengers and today you can have breakfast in New York and lunch in London. I read the other day that, due to the time belts, it will soon be possible to arrive in Paris several hours before you started out in Los Angles, or maybe it was the other way around. -o- SO IT MAY BE HIGH TIME for the tourist trade, who already having pretty much saturated the possibilities on Earth, to start laying in a few development plans for tourists on the moon. The rocket lines might just as well install a "Fly now-Pay later" plan and the American Automobile Association can start listing a bunch of recommended restaurants in the vicinity of the Sea of Clouds or the Sea of Serenity. Since lots of people claim they always stay in Holiday Inns across our nation, surely some of the rocketels on the moon should be under their trademark. And Mac Donalds will certainly want to sell their Trillionth hamburger on the moon. -o- THE CRATER PTOLEMAEUS MAY ONE day rival the Old Faithful in Yellowstone Park, if they can just get it to erupt on an equally regular schedule and the Sea of Rains may be to the Sea of Clouds as California is now to Florida. Two things are almost certain: one day there will be a "Ghost Town of the Old West", somewhere on the moon and lamps and varied bric- a-brac billed as genuine native up with the label, "Made in Japan". -o- craft of the region will turn Several Moves, St. Joe Area On March 1 ST. JOE - Mr. and Mrs. John F. Reding, Jeff and JJ11 moved to the Raney farm south of Livermore from the Kayser farm north of St. Joe. Mr. and Mrs. Roger Bormann and family moved from the Stattelman house In St. Joe to the house vacated by Mr. and Mrs. Reding. Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Kenne and sons are moving from the house on the Erpeldlng farm on the edge of St. Joe to their own home In Livermore. Mr. and Mrs. Cletus Salz and family are moving into the Erpelding house vacated by the Kenne's from the former Frideres farm. TROJANS MET St. Joe Trojans 4-H club met at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Alvin Berte. Pledge to the flag was led by Allan Kohlhaas. The club voted to give a farewell gift to Mrs. Norma Morgan, Kossuth County Economist. The annual County 4-H Day will be held April 3 in Algona with the following committee in charge of the display window: Marvin Kohlhaas, Denny Berte, Mick Berte, Tom McGuire, RayErpeldingand Kenneth Erpelding. The 4-H basketball tournament will be held March 15 at 7:30 p. m. Juniors and seniors March 16, 9 p. m., both teams playing Lu- Verne. The meeting was closed with the 4-H Pledge by Steve Berte. Lunch was served. I HATE TO INJECT A SOUR NOTE into all this prospective mooning, but 1 predict a day when even those government movies taken with so much effort and at such great expense to the taxpayers will be very old hat. When the tourists start swarming on the moon, the home movies of their trips are sure to be more interesting than those of Ranger 7 or even Ranger 8! -o- TO BE PERFECTLY FRANK, those recent moon pictures in the papers look to me like dabbllngs In some kindergartner's sandpile, or clay box. There's not a bit of color in any I've seen and absolutely nobody waving at the camera. I love home movies, but if its all just scenery, I'm not really very much impressed by them. For my taste, give me Junior, backed up against a palm tree so in future years I can see how big he's grown, or at least Aunt Mable looking real embarrassed because she didn't know Uncle Hubert was taking moviesl -o- BIRTHDAYS DURING THE WEEK of Feb. 28 through March 6 include Steve Merryman, Ray Reid, Mike Smith, David Chris- chilles, Ida Leffert, Sally Gant, Debbie Wetzel, Judy Heider- scheidt, Marlene Groen, Scott Buchanan, Ron Taylor, Jim Whittemore, Nancy Ballard, Maxine Qulntard, Berneta Rusk, Steve Boekelman, Steve Farrell, Jamie Christie, Pamela Detrick, Bill Naylor, Donald Hemmingsen, Tommy Burt, Susan Myers, George Balluff, Pete Straub, Benjamin Morris, Connie Cassel, Lou Nitchals, Dave Leffert, Stevie Hershberger, Pam Zender, Mike McGinnis, Bette Gilmore, Mary Cowan, Garry Graham, Karla Sjogren, Jeff Studer, John Rich, Fern Stanton, Duane Dewel and Kevin Nash. Couples celebrating wedding anniversaries include the Hollls Benschoters, Bob Woods and Chalmer Reads. -o- SINCE IT MAY BE QUITE a spell until we go on a space trip, we might just as well concentrate on .filling the space in our families' tummies for the time being. One way to do this is by making This Week's Recipe for Chocolate Nut Pie: Pastry for 1 crust 9 inch pie 1/2 cup butter 1 teasp. vanilla 1 cup sugar 3 eggs, well beaten 1/4 cup flour 1/3 cup cocoa 1/2 teasp, salt 3/4 cup dark corn syrup 3/4 cup milk 3/4 cup pecan halves Line pie pan with pastry and set aside. For the filling, cream the butter with the vanilla and gradually add sugar, creaming well after each addition, Add the eggs in thirds, beating until fluffy after each addition. Combine the flour, cocoa and salt, add to creamed mixture, mixing well. Beat in the corn syrup and milk until thoroughly blended. Stir in pecans. Pour filling in crust and bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes, Reduce heat to 325 and bake 40 to 45 minutes longer or until filling is set.

Make Strong Communities "I have come as light into the world, that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness." —John 12:46 Darkness is not alone that period between sunrise and sunset. Those who turn away from God live in a dark world, a world which may be filled with doubt and suspicion. When we believe in God, faith brings the world into a new light and, with faith, we can see things in perspective. If we have faith, we recognize the goodness of God and we believe there is good as well as evil in the world about us. If we walk in the light of God's grace, there is little room for anger and bitterness; there is instead a joy of living, and an inner urge to meet the world with a smile and a helping hand.
