FROM THE ATTIC . ...TO THE VAULT Hobby - An* Ye W f Neighbor'*) ly Dick The following item comes from Carl Rueth's column in Linn's Stamp Weekly pertaining to the strict rationing of the new United Nations souvenir sheet to five per person. "The sheets we re strictly limited to five per customer and no stories or tears could move the clerk. However, right in front of our daughter wasavery obviously pregnant women. When her turn came and the clerk counted out her five sheets, she wordlessly pointed to her condition with an index finger. Without blinking an eyelash, the man behind the counter ticked off another five sheets and handed them over. Not one word was exchanged during the entire transaction. This not only proves that there is still a sense of humor in this world, but it should, once and for all, stop all arguments as to just who is the youngest stamp collector in the United States." The two new stamps honoring Herbert Hoover and commemorating the 200th anniversary of the birth of Robert Fulton are excellent productions and likely still available at the post office. For a pleasing change in your post card correspondence, you might try the Coast Guard card featuring the service flag. The post office also has the Montgomery Blair 15 cent airmail which is now off sale at the Washington agency. - o - The annual convention of the Iowa Numismatic Association will be held at the Fort Des Moines hotel Sept. 10-12. Auction times are 8 p.m. on Friday, 1 pan. on Saturday, and 1:30 on Sunday. The exhibits and bourse are open to the public starting at 10 a.m. Saturday. - o - The eastern conception of mid- west geography is Inclined to be a bit vague. Weather was somewhat a problem during my Aug. trip, so 1 was noting the TV report on the day and the projected guess for the tomorrow,..£91^- plete wlthsvisual aids in'.the form pjt' a nfli$; ri w% i w«re cheerfully informed that new laws had been recorded for Springfield, Mo. and International Falls, Minn. The only disturbing feature was xthat Springfield was vaguely located somewhere in central Iowa and International Falls graced the northwestern portion of Montana. The next evening our rather rain-weary group of inadequately prepared campers reached the beach portion of Delaware, which runs south to Ocean City, Maryland. Delaware takes a dim view of beach sleeping , so we ventured into a federal area called Indian Inlet Reserve. Signs Informed us that camping had been suspended at various points, but one beach road had no sign so the effort was made. It was a shattering experience. Five battle-scarred lowans can now testify to me power, range, and ferocity of federally - protected mosquitoes in Delaware. They held conventions inside the sleeping bags and seemed to thrive on the preparation called OFF, though one member who must have bathed in the stuff did win a victory and gained some blissful sleep. Leaving the sleeper and one wanderer on the beach, I took the car now inhabited by the other two who had fled to What a difference one letter makes!

If you dial just one wrong number, you get a wrong number—or no number at all. Mak.e sure of the number and dial carefully - It will save you the time and trouble of dialing a second time to reach your party. Northweitern Bell in Iowa this stuffy sanctuary sometime during the night, and drove to Ocean City, seeking a haven at 7 In the morning. This is a rather difficult task in a resort area and with one body on the back seat, the other amazingly mixed up with the luggage, and neither showing much evidence of life, it proved to be a ghoulish expedition. Victory was finally achieved and the beach cleared. I discovered that an antique show was In town and that became my target later In the day. - o - One dealer certainly had something different. He represented William Blair Limited with offices in Maryland, London, and Zurich and the speciality of the house, though by no means the only interest , is barometers. They have the largest holding of signed mercury types circa 1780-1820 in the United States. Sales are by no means confined to collectors as the workmanship makes them well-suited for rooms with an early American decor. Prices range from $150 up and several had already been sold. Oh, yes, they are collected, too. A gentleman in Maine has some 120 different. I didn't find much more in the show that was particularly unusual. Most of the Carnival glass was the heavy, ornate design type, which doesn't particularly appeal to me. A fine dark blue vase was ruined by excessively heavy finish which blotted out the basic shade. For something different, I did note a Cranberry ladles spltoon for the gal who has everything. This tour Included a coin show at Norfolk, the Vanderbilt Mansion, and Hyde Park.
