TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Neighbor's) By Dick Palmer We have been reading articles stating that the gate at the New York Fair has been distressingly light. Perhaps so, but this was not in evidence the day that I revisited. All the popular exhibits had the same size lines that I observed last summer. General Electric, for example, had 30 min. posted. There was even a line at the Spanish pavilion, the best of the foreign section. Transportation this time was via subway from Times Square station on the express run. The ride was clean and comfortable, certainly the equal of the Long Island train at 1/3 rd the cost. * * * This afternoon provided an opportunity to visit exhibits missed and to check on the new ones. My first stop was the Churchill memorial presentation at the People to People Center, admission $1, which was actually a contribution to the work of the organization. The tone of the center was set by these words relative to Sir Winston as you entered the exhibit area: In war, resolution; in defeat, defiance; in victory, magnanimity; in peace, good will. The exhibit was basically a very complete photographic history of a life of incredible variety and achievement. Various awards and documents were also on display and the final room was devoted almost entirely to his paintings. While painting was a release type of hobby for Sir Winston, the fact remains that he was very talented in this field as well and the canvas upon which he wiped his brushes was not displayed and called art tho no doubt such would qualify at the Guggenheim. This was a powerful and moving experience worthy of the greatness it represented. * * * My steps next took me to the line at the Tower of Light presented by the nation's power and electric companies. The show was in a revolving theater featuring Reddi Kilowat and a light bulb replica of Ben Franklin. You were taken thru a series of scenes representing various holidays. The commercial message was more in evidence here than at many, but it was clever and interesting, The best scene was the 4th of July, complete with electric sky rockets. This from a dramatic standpoint should have been the finale, * * * Again the United States Govermneut center was the scene of considerable outside activity. I arrived 'at the time of the official dedication of the Green Beret March played by Paul Lavalle and the City Service Band of America. This march was composed in honor of our Special Service Forces now serving in our behalf in Viet Nam. A special exhibit of the forces weapons, equipment and duties followed. I also listened for awhile to the concert by the Army Band. Earlier in the day an Iowa band had performed, but I don't recall the community represented. * * * The Illinois presentation was a tribute to Lincoln, with a short, largely promotional film the feature, and the document area including one of the three known' copies of the Gettysburg Address written by Lincoln. This particular copy was originally requested by Edward Everett, the main orator at the dedication. The feature auditorium was Disney staged, with an excellent Lincoln puppet that stood up and presented in a very realistic fashion some of Lincoln's thoughts on liberty, At the conclusion, the audience meditated to the stirring music and words of the Battle Hymn of the Republic. In the middle of fun and frolic, there is always time for serious thought and the audience followed the fade-out with onerous applause. * * * My final stop was the Belgian Village, which is now completed, I still think that the admission price is too high, since the only thing you buy is the atmosphere for the various cafes and commercial shops inside. One New York coin shop has a spot here, but I saw nothing unusual in material or price. It is, however, an interesting area away from the general crowd with entertainment frequently presented from the square. * # * This was my third visit and I have yet to see the Lake area, General Motors and many of the other commercial and state exhibits. You can do just so much walking and standing in a day without turning leisure into work. Much has been said about raising the admission at the Fair from $2 to $2.50. I paid $2.50 to see the film, Lord Jim, on Broadway, which lasted about 2 1/2 hours. The Fair remains the best entertainment buy that I know of in New York. * • * * This column Has gone astray the last two weeks from the basic hobby theme but we'll get on course next week with the Chase Money Exhibit. Initial Plans For State Fair Are Announced Summer is more than the ol' swimming hole or a hammock in the shade for hundreds of rural young lowans. For 4-H Club members planning Iowa State Fair exhibits it's work time, carefully feeding stock, picking beans and spinach to can, watching jelly bubble in a big kettle, sewing, refinishing a table, rehearsing demonstration talks, studying the fine points of cattle judging. It's dream time too, for $29,045 in cash money rides on that work, a terrible time of hope that judges really understand and that all the ribbons are blue. That $29,045 is to be distributed as follows: Baby beeves, $7,895; beef heifers $3,355; dairy heifers $4,453; pigs $3,460; lambs $2,217; horse and pony $400; demonstrations $3,200; collection and construction $650; livestock judging $300; girls' home economics $3,115. Entries for home economics and collection and construction exhibits, dress revue and demonstration and judging contests will close Sunday, July 25. Final entry day for agricultural exhibits is Tuesday, Aug. 10. The state fair beef show will be Aug. 20-24, the dairy cattle show Aug. 25-29. The 1965 state fair will open Friday, Aug. 20, and close Sunday, Aug. 29. Special 4-H events include the horse and pony show, tractor operators contest, collection and construction exhibits and dress revue. Contestants in the tractor contest must be working in the 4-H tractor or safety program and be approved by the county extension staff. In the 4-H dress revue girls 14 to 19 from southern Iowa will model garments they have cut and made, The winner, who must be at least 16, will receive a gold medal from the fair board and a trip to the National 4-H Club Congress In Chicago. Other home economics projects Include clothing, home furnishing, food and nutrition and special exhibits. Algerian Named Asst. Professor At Mich. State EAST LANSING, Mich. Robert tl.
