I' 'Qtr ,Z 3' fx J 113: In 'Ulf July 15. 1955 Dear Mr. Laut, Taking off from the Findlay airport, we boarded a T. W. A. transport plane, owned and operated by Mi1ler's Transport Company. As we flew along, my wife became hungry so I called for the stewardess. I was amazed to find Laura Rader at our command. She told me that Dick Cornwell was piloting the plane. Sitting across the aisle from us were Ruth Rush and Iim Hock. who were-coming back from their honeymoon. Looking over Detroit, we saw a division of the Ford Motor Company, operated by Larry Frankenfeld. As we crossed over Indianapolis, we decided to visit the Speedway. On this particular day two of our own high school hot-rodders, Bob Hart and Bob I-locanson, were going to be in the race. As we left the grandstand, we ran into Ohio's great senator, Jack Dilts, and United States Vice-President, Gary Deer- wester. Again we boarded our plane heading further west. This time whom should we see sitting across the aisle but two very famous ranch-owners, Jim and Derald Siferd with their head foreman, Carroll August. We were then off for Reno. In Reno we found Norman Decker at the head of the Roulette Wheel. The manager of all Mr. Decker's concerns was our own Dave Barrett. The next morning we continued our trip across Nevada. We heard that Bob Ensman, the great scientist, had been appointed head of the atomic energy plant which is centered in Nevada. As we entered Hollywood, we saw a large sign which read "The Tedrow Producing Company. " We stopped in at the company to say hello to Fred and sitting behind his desk as secretary was Nancy Schlumbohm. While in Hollywood, we stopped at a large restaurant and found it owned and operated by the former Ruth Crum and hubby Royce. The entertainment in the restaurant was provided by a singer whom we recognized as Janet Cline. After spending the night in Max Stacy"s large hotel, we started for home. The trip became rather boring, so we snapped on the radio, and the voice of Jack Powell, the announcer, rang through the plane. On the way across Kansas we decided to stop at the Radabaughs' 100. 000 acre ranch. It was quite a place, but we didn't get to see Lois and Rex as they were in Kansas City at a cattle convention. As we flew out of the clty, we saw a familiar name on a large sign: "May's Dieting Salon ", oper- ated by Eleanore May. Finally we landed back at the Findlay airport. As we went to claim our luggage, we saw Dona Griffith just leaving for Florida on her annual vacation. Talking to her, we found out that Carol Bates was running a Spaghetti Palace in Toledo. Driving home, my wife pointed to a beautiful motel, "Phi1-Larry Motel", owned and operated by the former Phyllis Deldrick and hubby Larry. We had lots of surprises on our vacation. See you in September. Yours truly, Harry Gonso Zbzm 950: bl G23 -W. OE-OH P .F-H2 0. E-9 O. 20555 U. UMC-A nl Q-Q U. 3-Emu U. For U. mug P ga! 1. DOB Q. mg :Nz mg I. :B :OO-A E250-6 g.
