WE COULD START DOWN AT the PomR-rosa where the Slower, Pen Cartwright holds forth with his sons, Adam, Moss and Little Joe. I've long worried aUmt Uiis family. They are all so personable and they all seem to have plenty of romances. Yet, when the programs end, all of these guys are just like they were when the program started- unmarried and livinc luppih ever after. Plenty of sex, but none of the natural consequences. I'd like to make a few changes. ANOTHER NETWORK COULD just as -.veil have another family move in down the load A bit from the Powk'rosa at a place called the Hacienda. It could be .1 widow, Benita Wai;onmaker and her three lovely daughters, Eve, Filly and Sweet Sue. Before long, when the cathode tilths start sparking with romance we'd have the widower, Ben marry the widow, Benita. - o - THE RESULT OF THAT UNION would be a whole new crop of westerns both adult and juvenile. Ben and Benita could also be the parents of all the shows where things that don't ordinarily talk, mysteriously find voice. Instead of "My Motlier the Car" we could have, "My Uncle the Tractor," and pick up some farm implement sponsors. And instead of that talking horse on present-day television we could have a talking bull. We are accustomed to so much bull coming out of TV anyway, we might just as well switch to TV coming out of a bull! - o MEANWHILE, BACK AT THE ranch, Adam would naturally be courting Eve. After due benefit of the clergy, Adam and Eve could start raising little family situation comedies with a few quiz and celebrity panel shows. Just to keep things from getting too ordinary we could have a couple of monster families such as the Addams and the Munsters moving in next door. Cross-breeding between these later two might result in a combination lawyer-psychologist show entitled, "Mendel's Law of Recessive Characteristics." - o - A MUTUAL LOVE OF ANIMALS could result in a union between Hoss Cartwright and Filly Wagonmaker who start their own veterinarian hospital. Lassie and the Littlest Hobo could be their patients and to pick up some extra change Hoss and Filly could do a little brain surgery on humans, resulting, of course, in some medic shows that would entirely replace "The Doctors," "Dr. Kildaire," "The Nurses" and "Ben Casey" to boot 1 ' - ". '" |" , r " ,; s - 0 - ' ...'.•"*' WHEN LITTLE JOE CARTWRIGHT marries Sweet Sue Wagon- maker, they'll be the perfect pair to have some spy shows because, being so innocent looking nobody would suspect them of espionage. They could turn that trolly on "Petticoat Junction" into a spy train and instead of the destination being Hong Kong or Budapest, Peyton Place could be where the intrigue centers. To keep the ethnic worriers happier, Joe and Sue could hire one each of white, negro, Chinese and American Indian operatives. - o ANY ONE OF THE ABOVE mentioned genetic pairings can be expected in the future to give birth to a whole family of science fiction shows. It might also be interesting to cross the "Perry Mason Show" with "Branded" to see if Perry might not finally lose a case. If we crossed the "Real McCoys" with the "Beverly Hillbillys" would the result be a team like Huntley and Brinkly ? Would cross pollination between the Byrds and the Beatles result in a show called "The Ladybugs?" All these and other and other problems remain mysteries for TV genetics to solve in the future. In fact, how some of the TV shows ever got on in the first place may remain a mystery. - o - WE WERE VERY PLEASED TO receive this week a brochure of the Commencement exercises at the State University of Iowa in August and it was so thoughful of Irene Hutchins to send it. Even though our Bill was among the graduates we hadn't seen it and we'll treasure it for our memory book. Irene and Gene's David received his master's degree at the same affair. I'll never forget how old David is, for we received word of his birth the same day we became engaged. - o BIRTHDAYS DURING THE WEEK of Sept. 26 through Oct. 2 include Margaret Herbst, Gretchen Deim, Vickie Ricklefs, Harlan Sigsbee, Jeffrey Cowan, Jenny Woods, Jan Allen, Natalie McClure, Jackie and Jim Kelley, Arnold Mulso, Sharon Smith, Kevin Lynch, Mrs. J.

Wedding anniversaries include Mr. and Mrs. Clayto'n Bronson, Mr. and Mrs. Harlan Sigsbee, Mr. and Mrs. Louise Kelley, Mr. and Mrs. John Claude and Mr. and Mrs. Phil Ballard. - o - IT USED TO BE THAT CHICKEN was a delicacy reserved for Sunday dinners; now its just about the cheapest meat available and we are always looking for new ways to cook it. If you'd like to have a chicken with a French accent you might try this recipe for Coq Au Vin. 1 roasting chicken, disjointed (3 1/2 to 4 Ibs.) 3/4 cup seasoned flour 3 tabsp. butter 1/2 cup mushrooms 1/2 cup pearl onions 1/4 pound salt pork, diced 1 cup Burgundy wine bay leaf 1/8 teaspoon thyme chopped parsley Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Flour each chicken part. Melt butter and saute mushrooms and onions uutil lightly browned. After removing mushrooms and onions from pan, combine butter with fat from pork and brown floured chicken. Then rinse out skillet with Burgundy, add bay leaf and thyme and pour over chicken. Place in oven and bake 45 minutes or until cliicken is done. Remove chicken parts to warm platter with vegetables and pork. Strain sauce and correct seasoning. GRACE Swedish Girl Settles Exchange Student Into Life Here BY RUTH SHIERK Sana Asa Svedmin of Rotebro,' Sweden, a suburb of Stockholm, recently arrived to spend the present school years as a foreign exchange student in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Mitch J. Taylor. Sana and Linn Taylor are both seniors at the Algona Comm m- ity high school, but they have found that they attend no classes together. Sana is only four days older than Linn. She is one of a group of 700 students from Europe, which includes 110 students from Sweden. Twenty-five students traveled by chartered bus from New York to Iowa and Nebraska. In addition to Sana, one boy is an Exchange Student in Iowa. The students spent nine days on the ship "Grotte Baer," on which they were supervised by eight members of the American Field Service staff. They had been scheduled to sail on the "Seven Seas," much ill-fated ship, prior to its storm tossed near tragic trip. Their orientation classes were accomplished on the trip. Arriving In New York City on Aug. 12, they were taken immediately to the bus and left it only for meals and special ^sjorjs., ^Ihey slept on the J)us, arriving in Des Moines, the fol- . lo.wlag day;., • Sana was most impressed with the Allegheny mountains, which she described as less abrupt than those she sees in Sweden. Crossing the Mississippi in the daytime, she was most amazed at the width and stated that there are no rivers to compare with it In her country. She remarked about the size of the farms and said that ours are more separated than those in Sweden, where the farms surround each village. Neighbors are not as distant there. In Sweden, she said that many farmers live in the village or town, from which they can look out upon their farm, without living on it. Sana's father is foreman of the "Sports Grounds," at which sports Include skiing, bathing, skating, soccer, track, and field sports, and she described his as a responsible position. She has one sister, Sylvia, 20 years old. Sana is extremely Interested in sports, and said that both boys and girls there play basketball according to boys' rules. Intending to play here, she fears that the girls' rules will hamper her game, Using a gesture, she asked Linn, "Do you do this?", describing the dribble, which she is allowed to use in Sweden. She was astonished when Linn described the traveling rules for girls. Sana ate corn-on-the-cob for the first time at one of her first meals with the Taylor family. Since she prefers raw vegetables, she was not much impressed. She eats no gravy, sauces, or salad dressings, and she prefers her potatoes plain, without even butter. She enjoys fish, which is an important part of her diet at home. Chicken is a delicacy there, and ice cream is served only on special occasions. Soups are served much in Sana's home, which include potato and occasionally chicken. Not knowing the English name for mushrooms, she asked if we have a vegetable here which is' 'like an umbrella." She described their mushroom hunts in the fall of the year and said that they make fresh mushroom soup during that season. Their home .is mxlern, and the family heats with oil and cooks on an electric stove. She described the large department stores, but stated that shoes and somo clothing are cheaper here. In Sweden, she SANASVEDM'vN wears short-shorts, and the students are allowed to wear slacks to school. Nylon hose can be purchased there for about 25? a pair and are made in Italy. They are as sheer as ours, and Sana brought several pairs from *ier home. Wool hose are worn under the slacks in winter, since the temperature is always below zero for three or four months. The average temperature is about 67 degrees in the summer. There is no color television, which is government-owned. Special events, particulary sports, are televised in the daytime, but otherwise hours for viewing are from 6 to 11 p.m. Sana stated that their television stations devoted much time to the American astronauts, and also that the newspapers had four or five columns of front page publicity on their trips. She was very interested, as were most people there, on our trips to outer space. Two Russian astronauts visited Sweden, having received much publicity. Sana also attended a parade when Khrushchev visited Stockholm. However, she said that she saw just "the top of his head," as the line of march was lined by guards who stood shoulder to shoulder. Shei feels toat^Swederris not} a cormiunist state, ./but is pre-l, domlnantly socialist. She stated that her country could not enter the Common Market, since it has not Joined NATO. She feels that Sweden would like to see a United States of Europe. Sana began her learning of English in the fifth grade. She speaks with a tinge of Swedish accent, combined with precise English. She remarked that she was having difficulty with our American slang, and one thing she had not been able to master yet was the "Huh-uh" and "Uh- huh," which so many use for yes and no. In demonstrating her difficulty, she nodded her head when she should have been shaking it for"no." San prefers modern music and Jazz to the classics, but among the latter, her favorite compos- : ers include Greig, Mozart, and Beethoven. She favors folk- singing and has a number of the top current records. An , album costs about $5.00 there, and she is fond of Peter, Paul and Mary, Joan Baez, and Bob Dillon. Cinerama is show there, and she has seen "Aroundthe World" and "It's a Mad, Mid, Mad World." She has seen the "West Side Story" and especially enjoyed "Tom Jones." She has seen most of the Alfred Hitchcock movies and mentioned especially "The Birds." The admission price is about $1.00, and they show mostly American movies. Sana has seen only one Russian film and does not enjoy Italian movies. She attends many legitimate plays. She described the school system is being quite different from ours. In Sweden, students take about fifteen subjects, which vary each day, similar to a college schedule here. They go to school six days a week, with classes from 8:30 a.m. 3:20 p.m., except on Saturday, when they go from 8:30 12noon. Classes are from 10 to 45 minutes in duration t with a ten minute break between and one hour from lunch. They do not pay book rental and are able to keep their books at the end of the school year. Their lunches are also paid for by the government. Sana is enthusiastic about her stay here and is looking forward to the many experiences she will have. She and Linn attend in my extra-curricular activities at school together. A CLASSIFIED AD WILL GET FAST HESt'LTS 7TH SEAMAN James A.

But it isn't very often you get a chance to follow an all-time sales record year with a new Chrysler like this one. Sure, our '65 was great. But the '66 is even better. It looks better. Moves quicker. It's got a beautiful new front end and a very dramatic new rear. It's got a bigger and more zesty group of V-8 engines. From a 383 cubic incher to a 440 TNT with twin exhausts and twin snorkels. (A "snorkel" is an air intake horn for the carburetor — does great things for performance.) The interiors, all up and down the line, are more luxurious and comforting. Take our new shell bucket To America with love... The 1966 Chrysler seats, for example. It's almost as if they had been custom-fitted for you. One thing we didn't even think about changing. It has to do with money. Five of our Newport models (real Chryslers — not junior editions) are priced just a few dollars a month more than the most popular smaller cars with the same equipment. This includes features like power steering, power brakes, a 383 cubic inch V-8, automatic transmission, radio and many standard items like safety door handles and seat belts. Move up to Chrysler . . . it's getting easier by the minute. CHRYSLER On display now. mi.•,:•»!•.3 dco.c. I' c :y.
