frdflQjiq.) Uppy &» Metntt fcntdoy, Sept. 14, 196S Algona Youth Spent The Summer With Caravaners BY RUTH SfflERK Bruce Sundet, son of Mr, and Mrs. Harold Sundet, Algona, left Saturday to return to Decorah, where he will be a sophomore at Luther College. Bruce spent most of the summer In Canada as a member of a caravaning group sponsored by the Lutheran church. Bruce was one of 28 boys and 28 girls who attended a briefing session from June 23 to July 2 at Carthage College in Kenosha, Wise. Teams of four were sent from Carthage to various parts of the United States and Canada. Bruce became captain of his team, which also included Paul Harbig of Dallas, Tex., Jane Walline of Galva, 01., and Sylvia Blair of Hickory, No. Car. Bruce and his team traveled by bus to Winnipeg, a 26-hour trip. They passed through Minneapolis, checked their luggage through and when the got to Winnipeg, their luggage was not there. They had to wait 24hours for it to arrive. They were furnished transportation from one town to the next by the host church. They traveled in cars driven by a member of the church or by the pastor. The team spent four days in each church they visited, where they had daily sessions with members of the Luther League. They visited five towns in Manitoba and seven in Saskatchewan.. Saskatoon was their farthest point west. The last stop at each church was "Family Night," wherein Bruce and members of his team had an opportunity to talk with parents, as well as with young people. The team stayed in private homes and had breakfast with the family. Bruce found that their breakfasts are similar to ours. They also had lunch in various homes. Dinners were served either at the church or took the form of a picnic or barbecue. Bruce mentioned that apple juice was served in abundance and he was served orange juice infrequently. Tomato juice is served at both the noon and evening meals. Bruce remarked as to how much tea he had, which he usually does not drink at home. Also he stated that a great deal of "Freshie" is served, which is similar to our Kool-Aid. The towns visited were, for the most part, small towns of from 1,000 to 3,000. However, they did visit towns as small as 115 persons and some as large as 500,000 population. Saskatchewan has a predominantly German population, and in one congregation of 750 members, two services are held each Sunday, one in English and one in German. Bruce found few universities. Each province has one, which is comparable to our state universities, He found the province of Saskatchewan wag flat land, planted mostly to wheat. He remarked about how many elevators there are, which are very large and built of wood. They are painted a bright orange or red and can be seen at great distances, Bruce enjoyed visiting a coffee house in Winnipeg, where he beard an excellent folk singer. In one restaurant in Winnipeg, be was surprised to find they served "Col, Sander Kentucky- fried chicken," The team was taken on a tour of an atomic power and reactor plant, which is still in process of construction. When finished, it will consist of 15 to 20 buildings, of which only a few are completed and in use. The plant was located near Pinawa in Manitoba province. The team toured the laboratories and talked with a doctor who is doing research on cell-division and the creation of a membrane. Chemical research is also conducted at the installation. His team also visited an exhibition at Regina, which Bruce compared with our state fairs. Bruce brought home some Royal Albert bone china, a tea set, which he purchased in Saskatoon. He was amazed at the variety of design and colors in the china he saw there. Paul Harbig had to leave the team early to return to Texas for school. Jane and Sylvia traveled with Bruce by plane from Saskatchewan, arriving in Minneapolis Aug. 29. Mr. and Mrs. Sundet met them there and the two girls were guests of the Sundets until Tuesday, when Bruce and his parents took them back to Minneapolis, where they boarded planes for their respective homes. Bruce will participate in basketball and track at Luther College. He registered there last Saturday and classes began Monday.
