Felco has approached the mineral intake problem from a palatability standpoint and came up with an excellent one for taste desirability and high nutrient content. Felco Supreme Feeding Mineral is dust free, free flowing and includes 8% phosphorus readily available to the animal. It is intentionally low in salt as animals tend to balance out their own salt needs. Most livestock men are aware of their animals' need for extra mineral and use Felco Supreme Feeding Mineral to supply this need.

TO THE VAULT (Your Hobby - And Your Ntighbor'i) By Dick Palm«r Since I take a very dim view of Washington and all metropolitan traffic, I elected to establish a commuting base at the Wagon Wheel Motel south of Alexandria just a couple of miles on US #1 south of the beltway system. Buses run to Alexandria and Washington every half hour, tho the exact schedule remains a paper record of someone's imagination. The stop, however, is right across the highway from the motel and the ride is comfortable with the Washington terminal within walking distance of many main attractions. Considering the commuting convenience, the usually spacious grounds, the large rooms, the king-size pool, and the very fine restaurant, plus reasonable rates, I would mark the Wagon Wheel as not only a good base for a Washington visit but one of the best motel buys in the country, and I've been in a lot of them. - o For the hobby-minded, there is an extra bonus. The motel is on a frontage road which moves south thru a residential area and terminates at a large discount center and a most interesting building, the Thieves Market. This is almost entirely antiques and Americana with one coin establishment and, somewhat oddly, a clothing store. I would estimate that some 15 to 20 dealers have space, some specializing, such as the lady with French antiques, and others with a general line. There is much that is fine, much that is junk, tho who is to say, and much in the form of reproductions and modern. I saw a piece of Carnival with the Rose and Dragon pattern which I thought most attractive and this is the first I've seen. I limited my purchases to a few decorative items with no particular pedigree, but spent a good share of the afternoon with my cousin, Mrs. L. A. Quinn, in general browsing. Ernie admired an Italian glass decanter set. While we were in Alexandria for the rest of the afternoon, the rest of my party went to the Thieves Market. They must have covered the same ground, because the set was presented to me upon my return. So the Thieves Market is now well represented in my office, den, study or whatever it should be termed. - o Don't overlook Alexandria, either. This is usually done if you haven't been to Washington before, so this was my first all too brief venture into the city. If you are Scotch or at all interested in things Scotch, there is the Scotland House on Washington street just across from a bus stop. Here you can learn a bit about the clans, their history and relationships and discover the correct tartan. I found both a direct and indirect tie- in with Clan Wallace. The tartan is red with a black square crossed by yellow lines. The English equivalent of the Latin motto is "For Liberty", which seems appropriate . for a history teacher. - o An interesting free attraction with a free will offering is the Old Apothecary Shop. Established in 1792, it remained in active operation within the same family thru five generations until 1933. A recording can be played as you move around explaining the many items on display. Many of the bottles, furnishings and equipment are original. The various documents thru the years have been preserved, including a request from Mrs. Washington for some castor oil. Robert E. Lee was in this shop when he received his orders sending him to Harper's Ferry to deal with a disorderly old gentleman named John Brown. The clerk who brought the orders was J. E. B. Stuart. An antique shop is in the adjoining building. Funds from this and the free offering are used by the Landmarks Society to maintain the old shop. Many antique, silver and ceramic shops are in the general area and you are not far from the dock district, with a warehouse offering a variety of foreign imports and the Potomac Arms Company with a fine assortment of modern weapons, commemoration pieces and antique firearms and swords. I didn't begin to touch on the points of interest here, so it will rate priority the next time I am in the Washington vicinity. - o Ernie and Bud led a conducted tour on Friday of the Tidewater area. Most visitors attempt to see Mount Vernon, but overlook equally historic and interesting places which are much less crowded, hence can be viewed in a more leisurely fashion. Some of you may remember the Profile in Courage episode on George Mason who fought against the ratification of the Constitution, because it did not contain a Bill of Rights. A 3-cent commemorative stamp was issued when his home, Gunston Hall, was opened to the public. This fine old home contains a room listed as one of the hundred most attractive in America. The boxwood gardens are remarkable. The boxwood grows very slowly, so the original planter really gets only a suggestion of what his creation will eventually be like. George Mason would certainly be proud of his plantings now. Our trip also included Stratford Hall where Robert E. Lee was born and Wakefield, the place of Washington's birth. Wakefield has a small postoffice using its historic significance in the cancellation. {Fenton j Mrs, E. J. Frank and daughter Mrs. Don Shaw were hostesses Friday afternoon at a coffee party in honor of Mrs. Frank's daughters, Mrs. Bob Johanesen of Minneapolis; Mrs. Dick Schiltz of Long Beach, Calif.; and Mrs. Howard Rabey of Cedar Falls.
