H. J. Cline and Mrs. Ed Kerr and Hr. Earl Ott met at 0:30 A.M. to begin their 'sneak day' trip to Windsor,Canada and Detroit, Michigan. We ate a belated breakfast after we ar- rived in Windsor at Harlos'. After breakfast, we looked over uptown Windsor and had an hour to ourselves. At noon we went back to Detroit. After finding our way across the bridge and getting traffictied up in Detroit, we ate our lunch at Cunning- ham's. He at least proved we could have at- tention by lettlng a policeman stop trafficc so we could get in line, and Judy found out that the big buses will stop for you if you accidentally get in their way. After seeing Cinnerama, where some of us were disappointed while others were amazed, we split up for some free time. The boys saw a hotrod show and the girls toured Hudson's Department store and rodethe escalators which was a novelty to some of them,while our span- sors rested their tired feet and enjoyed a cup of coffee. We met back at the car at 5 o'clock and started for home. Since we had eaten lightly all day, we decided to go all out for dinner, so we stopped at the Plantation Inn, Maumee for dinner. Leaving Haumee for home we were tired, UIWPY, full, Ind Very happy, but who wouldn't be after seventeen hours of rushing around?
