A crowd of about 250 or more people attended the Lake County Extension farm tour at Scheib's farm. Five large hay wagons hauled by pickups or tractors were then filled with people when they went to the other fields and saw Cree, the wolf dog. Everyone seemed to enjoy the blueberry donuts which were served later.

Sees communism as over a peak

While communism was not taken lightly, that system has reached its peak and seemed certain to decline in world power was the opinion expressed to Two Harbors Rotarians by Rev. Reuben Youngdahl.

Rev. Youngdahl, pastor of Mount Olivet Lutheran Church in Minneapolis, who is in charge of the Cathedral of the Pines summer camp on the North Shore, recently returned from a visit behind the "iron curtain". He told club members and Rotary Anns at the meeting of his experiences in five communist nations. Rev. Youngdahl accompanied his talk with slides he had taken during his visit.

The adults had a tug of war which the Army won over the Navy for both the ladies and the men. The egg throwing contest was won by the champions Vi and Bud Kragseth and the grand prize of a boy's bike was won by Harold Scotland. Many other prizes were given away.

A coat of tar is also being applied on the highway between Gooseberry and Beaver Bay which is also being done in a manner which obstructs traffic only to a slight degree, and is being covered with gravel as the work progresses in order that cars are not smeared with the substance.
