Our day ended, the play con- cluded, Edwin and I took the train back to Munich to our ho- tel. Edwin and his mother, on pre- vious journeys, had visited many tourist attractions in Europe; so this trip for Edwin was a quick skirting the edges to see new things. We visited the battle fields of WWI in an isolated cor- ner of the hostilities, Austro- Hungarians on Germany's side; Italians on the side of so-called Allies. at the recent Worldwlde Plonser Heritage celebration are, from left, Jenna Beavers, Steve Will- Albert and Josh Fards. of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, , participate in special day July 19, 1997 the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day !

The weather, the trail, he pioneers and the animals were the challenges 'the souls who made the trip. "Each member was asked to some of the writings have survived the trip and the have been published, so we can read about the joy and of a and develop a love for them for their and sacrifice," a spokesperson noted. Busses rarely travelled to plac- es Edwin wanted to see; so he hired a car with guide to take us to the north of Italy where hos- tilities seem to have been but a farce. Trenches dug by soldiers, roughly 100 feet in length, two feet wide, six fee t deep, limbs and twigs covering the bottom to keep soldiers out of mud. On that day, 12yearslater, the view- er could see there were no com- forts of home here. Enemy trenches faced each other some 100 feet apart. It is said that during a lull in the fighting sol- diers exchanged cigarettes by walking between trenches. When headquarters gave word to attack; well, would you care to shoot your new friend? Italians attempted to modern- ize their approach to soldier safe- ty and comfort by creating a con- crete trench. I sloshed through ankle deep water in the cistern- like battlement. Slots were carved to allow soldiers to shoot at the enemy. This monstrosity had withstood the ravages of time, its efficiency never tested as Armistice was signed before it could be used. We were off again, our chauf- feur-drive car taking us south along the Adriatic Sea to Du- brovnik, Yugoslavia. a stone- built city on a hill. fortifications of old represented the struggle for existence throughout ages. along the road shepherds guid- ed their flocks among rocks in search of grass. Our route then took us north to Trieste, Italy, then to Venice. gondolier paddles silently dipped in the canal as they passed un- der my hotel window. Right-of- way signals were called out as there were no traffic lights. This Venetian experience marked the first time I had slept under a mosquito netting that encased the bed. PiSa's tower was still leaning. The galleries in Florence offered world famous art so frequently described. A one week stay in Rome al- lowed me time to search through this ancient city built on seven hills. The best know'n, and most important surely is Vatican Hill, residence of the Roman Catholic Pope. Edwin had arranged an audi- ence with the then reigning Pope Pious XI. Two Swiss guards, dressed in customary attire, stood one on each side of the door. Our passes allowed us to enter. In a great chamber at the top of wide, carpeted stairs, we sat expectantly gazing at the simplicity of the corful room. Within a few minutes the Pope, white robe flowing, was ushered in. Upon his appearance Edwin genuflected. Should I? Protes- tants do not usually so perform; nonetheless, as a matter of cour- tesy, I followed suit. Edwin and I seldom took out- ings together, but this time was an exception, a drive on an old sone-paved road to Ostia, a sea- port of old Rome in the heyday of its power. A newly paved road exclusive- ly for Mussolini, paralleled the old stone road. Right then a red Ferrari sports car zipped past us, surely doing 100. Our guide intoned, as if with respect, "That was Mussolini, always in a hur- ry" Naples' noted volcano, Vesu- vius, displayed fire and smoke to the outside world. Edwin re- mained on the funicular rail- road car that ascended the slope, but I hiked on to peer down into the volcano's fiery red lava pool churning madly as if ready to explode in one of its unpredict- able moods. A sea crossing to Palermo, Sic- ily, brought realization that Ita- ly's underground Mafia, at times, might have sailed this same route. OnE full day's drive south across Sicily took us to Agrigen- turn, the southern stronghold during days of the Roman Em- pire. Overlooking the Sicilian channel, a first century A.D. multicolumn framework stands today as it did then, all Corin- thian Columns in place as if workmen had just walked away for lunch. From Sycarosa, Sicily, we headed westward on'the Medi- terranean, embarking on the classic Empress of Britain liner that had just returned from In- dia on a scheduled run to Lon- don. We lei the ship in Gibraltar and headed for Malaga to spend winter of 1930-31. More of this adventure is to come in Part IV. ! I I,0VLIR TAMIROFF "_:_.E._ICK MILK VODKA .

Laureate Theta Beta ice cream bar sales benefit the community Laureate Theta Beta, Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi, takes part in the Third Thursday in the Plaza Market by selling their famous ice cream bars. June sales were so successful that the club decided to continue with the ice cream bar sales in July, August, and Septem- ber. The July 4th fireworks ice cream bar sales also proved to be very successful and enjoyed along with the beautiful fireworks display. The chapter is very grateful to Lloyd Mittelstadt who built the special trailer making it easier to transport the ice cream freezer to different locations and also to the chapter members who painted it the traditional Beta Sigma phi colors and the new sign advertis- ing the ice cream bar sales. When an ice cream bar is purchased, not only do you receive a delicious treat, but everything above cost of materials goes into a fund which, later in the year, is donated to organizations in the community such as: the Boys and Girls Club, the Senior Center, Reading is Fundamental (RIF), Family Service and 4-H," club publicity chair Ethel Berry stated.
