By Mary Tinley Daly A summer highlight at our house, and the hOl;lses of em children is the Family Frolic put on by the Press Club. Attended by 5,000 frolicking families' of newsmen, even to the third generation, it is an annual "must" for' anybody who ever has at,: "And, Grandma, they had air tended. Papa or Grandpop planes for big kids and airplanes Newsman would be in the for little kids and . . . : " doghouse permanently if he "'J:1here was a milk wagon, with failed to get tickets for this, the ell-out good time for everybody from· toddlers to the cane set.

Hot Ifflgs First Contingent going from our bouse today included the Head of the House and the famllies (all but'the babies) of Pat, John By and Eileen: seven adults and nine children. (Ginny and I baby-sat the twins, "Baby" Bren nan and Little JO'hn). Plots and plans have been widely discussed for days by 8Dlall fry who had previously attended: "We'll get in the hot dog line first-let's take two, that'll hold us while we're lining up for the fire engine. And, Kate, don't get lICaroo when the siren blowS." "Yeah, then f9r the popsicles end cotton candy and peanuts you can put the peanuts in your pocket-and we'll go for 1he pony ride." "No, the train!" "The airplane r,ide, that's for m-e," said Sean. Milk Wagon-With Horse The day. quite evidently, went off with its usual flair according 10 the sticky, sunburned and ex hilerated gang that arrived at our house to pick up the babies.. "Grandma,' I ate four hot dogs, end I would-.a got another but Daddy took it away from me." (Ed.: 10,000 hot dogs, complete with mustard and relish were on the menu, a veritable Niagara Falls of coke, plus peanuts, cot ton candy, potato chips and pop sicles--"All you can eat" and no . body went home hungry, (a bit squeamish, perhaps, but not hun gry).

"And the man said real loud over the thing-'Here is a little girl who isn't lost, but her mother is!' Then Mommy came to get' me. See, she was lost!" Zoo on Wheels Some of the variety of features included in this well worked out performance· included: a barnyard full of live farm ani mals-eows, chickens, rabbits, ducks - animals city children seldom see; also a mobile dis play of animals of the. forest, "a zoo on wheels"; a s<>lid pro pellant rocket ('From NASA with love' as the program put it); canine corps and mounted patrol; and for music, the Navy Band and a Hootenanny.' Included also were an exhibi tion ()f jiu jitsu and karate, sports demonstrations from fly casting to tennis, races for child ren, horseshoe pitching, and a ladies parking contest. (We have entered this ovef' and over, never won.) Good Time for All Also among the no~-wins this year, as usu·al, were our 16 for the . assortment of prizes, 664 listed, "and other valuable p.riz

"We'll go again next year, won't we, Grandpa?" were part ing words as three carloads of families drove off. For one, their parents tell WI, there was no response to the jingle of the Good Humor man.
