To Wait For Dollar Dinner
Contestants To Grow Older
By PAUL W. HARVEY, JR.
SALEM, Sept. 8 (JP) A note
to the young fellows: when you
consider Retting married, w e
suggest you wait until the dollar
dinner conteitanti at the Oregon
state f air are oia enough.

contest, each girl brings her own

dinner, and then has to keep to
The Idea lor the contest orig
inated In Oregon, and has spread
to the other states. Each girl pie
pares a dinner for four persons,
and spends less than $2. The
limit used to be a dollar, but In
flation has changed that.
I was a guest yesterday at a
dollar dinner served by pretty,'
little Lois Flinn. She's only 14
years old, and lives In Valsetz,
a Polk county logging center In
the coast mountains. Her father
is a logger, and there are three
younger children In the family.
Lois cooks on a wood range at
home. So you can guess how flus
tered she was when she got to
the fair and found she had to
cook on an electric range. She
had never used one before.
Rut Lois mastered the range,
and served dinner a couDle
of minutes later than called for
by her 1 3-4 hour schedule.
With a lot of spectators mak
ing her nervous by watching her
every move. Lois served as fine
a dinner as this 203-pound food
lover has ever tasted. (My wife
didn't consider this remark In a
very good light.)

the powder dry" is modeled in
Cleveland, O., by its inventor,
Charles A. Mueller. The con
traption is designed for baseball
fans, for parades, or as a beach
sunshade. It's very simple, says
Mueller. It's made of a hinged
piece of lacquered wood to which
a piece of galvanized wire has
been- attached. Mueller's now
out looking for a market.
Mrs. Wonsetler said that Frank
Unruh, Howard's father, has been
separated from his wife for some
years. His whereabouts are unknown.
