Re: Cougars

I understand the Cougs had a big party in the Tri-Cities to
celebrate their flip-off championship of the Pac Ten. Also they
spent a day chipping out divots at Meadow.

I know that the spirit of Don Richey ('47RIP) was on his old
balcony on that course playing the Husky fight song as the
Incarseration Nation hacked their way by.

To: Jim McKeown ('53)

Congratulations Jim on your up coming Wedding Anniversary. My
husband, Morris Massey ('54), and I were married 50 years last 
October. I think it is quite an accomplishment for a couple to be 
married this long now days. Do you have any Great-Grand Children? 
We have 4. Hope you have a great Anniversary.

Your Class Mate

Re: Viet Nam Wall

If anyone is ever in Sacramento and are interested in the Viet Nam
War and names, you should visit the Capitol Park, right next to the
beautiful Capitol building. The Viet Nam Vets built one of the most
beautiful and touching monuments I have ever seen, including the
one in DC. Wonderfully designed, with bronze replicas of actual
photos taken at the time and also bronze figures that bring tears
to the eyes. The whole experience is one of quiet remembrance and

My wife and I just returned from Viet Nam and Cambodia... very
beautiful and becoming a very big tourist attraction since 
United started flying to Hanoi. They also have become very big
capitalists, just like China.

Highway 30 from Pocatello to I-80 is the route the truck drivers
take. I used to drive a Kenworth and traveled that road many times
- it's a good short cut.

Re: Idaho 30


Unless you're in a terrible rush, I would advise you enjoy Highway
30 through Soda Springs and into Wyoming. The road is as good 
as any; in fact, I would always choose something less than the
freeway. The latter are quicker, but soooo boring!

When you get farther east, and if it is open, try WY130 at Walcott.
That drive into Laramie is as beautiful as they get.

Re: Hiway routing old US 30

To: Mike Davis ("74)

Having been through there several times in the last 7-8 years on
pieces of both routes, I would just stay on the interstate. My
impression of 30 last time I was on it was that it needed serious
maintenance work in several areas. The interstate is definitely
faster and smoother and a lot less curves. If you can time your
passage from say, Tremonton and on to I-80 just below Ogden and
then on to that stretch of what they call the Eisenhower Hiway
going into Wyoming between 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM you should glide
right through. Or if you prefer to drive at night you can get
through easily after 11 PM.

As I was growing up we went "back home" to Louisville, KY at least
every other year, sometimes more often. US 30 was the most chosen
route. We would take it to East of Omaha and then straight down to
Columbus, over to St. Louis and on into Louisville. We always 
spent the 1st night in Rick Springs, and the 2nd night in Omaha 
or Columbus, MO. Not bad time for the old '47, '49, '51, and '53 
Chevys and a '55 Ford. One year to avoid some massive flooding on 
our usual route, we dropped down to near Lawrence, KS to go east 
and just outside of the city had to hide under a RR trestle and 
watch a large tornado come right at us. But it veered off about 
1000 feet away to go over and rip up 2 trailer parks. If you have 
not seen and heard a large tornado pass close, it is a fearsome/
awesome experience.

Have a nice trip.

I have a hew hutch, and a table that my mom had when we lived at 
416 Abert. The table only has 4 chairs. Mom says that they came 
with end arm chairs.

My question is does anyone know where to find replacements?

[Check out the cost of much of the G.I. Furniture in 1948 at: - No hutch listed, 
though. Does the table have sections that fold down?   -Maren]

WEEKEND OF June 24TH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unfortunately, Frank Osgard ('63 WB) is unable to make it to the
weekend get togethers... so I took his room at the old DI... They
mentioned when I confirmed the reservation that they keep this room
available for Frank year round so I am a little concerned that 
it may not be habitable... and if it is I am wondering if they 
change the sheets between his visits... but anyway, that leaves me 
with a room at the Hampton Inn which I will not be using (Sorry
Heidlebaugh ('65)... I know I ALWAYS stay at the Hampton but
figured I could bite the bullet for our 40th)... I know last year,
Harvey Hurshel Irby, Jr. ('64) needed a room and because I had a
jury out I couldn't make it and he was able to stay fairly close
for his 40th... If someone has had to make reservations in a
foreign country like Pasco or Kennewick or even Benton City... this
room will be available till I get back from the Roadster Show next
Monday (6/20) after that I will just cancel it... the room is on
the River side non-smoking King... 97 bucks a night check in 23d
(Thursday) and check out 26th (Sunday)... lemme know... first
person to contact me gets it... after that juice will get you
nothing... except a "gee I'm sorry"...

Take care!
