Fenfon Youlh Home From Capitol Trip FENTON - James Voigt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gerald Voigt of Fenton, returned Monday from attending the CAR National Conference in Washington, D.C. He received the trip as state Registrar for Iowa's Children of the American Revolution. There were 36 delegates attending. Others from this area were John Patterson and Mrs. Don Patterson, Senior State President, of Burt. This trip was James' third to see the tourist attractions in the nation's capitol, but he was impressed with their stop in Philadelphia, where they visited Independence Hall, saw where the first Congress met, and viewed the Liberty Bell. In Washington, they visited the National Archives, the Library of Congress, the Capitol, the Representatives' Office Building, the new Sam Rayburn Senate Office Building, and the Jefferson, Lincoln, and Washington Monuments. A disappointment to the delegation was that the scheduled White House Tea at which they were to meet President Johnson was canceled because of Freedom Marchers picketing the area. The group traveled by car, tak- • ing eight days for the trip. On their return they were delayed by the Mississippi River floods, and had to make a detour because of closed bridges.
