Russell Graham The sights and sounds of America - you get close to them, I found out, after a 5,000-mile round trip by bus to the Vermont hills. I hadn't been east for three years and I guess I'd forgotten what a big layout this land is. Sixty hours one way and us skinny gu~s are not too well padded. The sights and sounds - A Pennsylvania town at two in the morn'rag with the lonely streets dstIq>led with the shadows of the elm trees. The brooding hills rise abruptly against the stars and fog begins its silent drift upward from the waters of a lake. The air is damp and I never did get adjusted to the humidity after I got farther east. East of the Mississippi and the Joint is jumping. People every- where - the sidewalks clogged, the busses jammed, the streets a madhouse of cars. Construction is booming - com. mercial buildings, houses, apart- merits - they build them big and high and all over. The sights and sounds - New York, where I lived for four years, lovely in the evening dusk with the soft green lights bathing the spire of the Empire State Building. I rode the tarnpikes non-stop from Chicago to New York, The turnpLkes ride aloof~ for the most part through the country- side with hardly ever a city in sight. Running up through the New Jersey fiatlands, you strike the industrial con~plex around New York, dive through the Holland Tunnel and you're in the roar of New York. The New York smell Is lndes- eri_hable but I've never forgotten it. The air is humid with the ocean in it along with exhaust ~nnes, the subway odor and people. The sights and sounds - Rolh:ng northward on Interstate 91 in Vermont, along the Connecticut River, the forests are like a Jungle. Vermont is great for breathtaking views and every and then, through the green forests, I could seethe great river. I saw lots af rivers and streams in the east- most of them a love. ~ocolate brown with a green usness. I think you cut this water With a knife and fork. How about the sounds? People and laughing and shout. trucks with the The ~bts and ~mmd~ - The lovely cities like Milwaukee and Madison and Minneapolis. How abut the ballparks? Milwaukee's County Stadium was green and lovely but there were no base balls being thrown there. I sat many a time. They played ball there that afternoon and Balti. more humbled the Yanks. The sights and sounds - Espec- ially the sights. I had my first glimpse of the mini-skirt in New York. She had lovely legs. I know now why they don't wear belts with them - the belts would cover the skirt. The sights and sounds - The old town where I grew up. It really hasn't changed too much. The lake is as lovely as ever and the same mountains still watch over it. The trees keep growing and they appear to be almost strangling the city. But the people change. I knew few of them there now. Now and then a familiar face looms into view and your mind peels off the years and tries to recall the name. The sights and sounds - Cigar- ettes cost 35 and 40 cents a ,pack and a milkshake in Chicago cost me 55 cents and you could have put it in your eye and never lmve known the difference. A big country, a sprawli~tg one and people in the various sec- tions really should get out and see how the other sections live. The sights and sounds - I never kneW there were so many moun- tains in Vermont and New Hamp- shire. They stand them on edge to crowd more of them in. I stood on Cannon Mountain in Franconla Notch with my brother Ed and through the smoky haze, the ~eaka of the W~ite Moun- talus ran toward the horizon like ocean waves. My wife Donna met me in Rapid City at night when I ar- rived and I drove home. After three days of heating the roar of the bus, the silence was immense, The sights and the sounds - We erosed the state line into Wyo, ruing and the air was clean and dry and I could have seen for a hundred miles if it hadn't been dark. I trod a little harder on the gas pedal. It was great to be home. Gutter Rats Meet Aug, 25 An organization meeting of "The Gutter Rats" mixed doubles bowling league will be held Thursday evening August 25 at 7 p.m. in the TCF_,A hospitality room. League secretary, Mrs. Ted Gil- be~, said that any team unable to have a rep~sentative at the meeting should notify her. Other- |t mill be interpreted that that team is not bowling this JIxNIsOn.

He received the Vigil Honor. With the honor, he was given the Indian name, Achgiguwen (Live my One). Graham is a member of the Crazy Horse Lodge in the Black Hills area.
