"I'm Moving On" might well be my theme song. Am now living with a family south of Munich in sight of the mountains. Leni, one of the daughters, has just finished her ex- amination in English and is now also working for her translators cer- tificate in French. In order to ]earn the language better, she worked for a year in England an six months in France. The other members of the family are Mamma and Papa Schlosser and two sisters. The youngest sister, Erni, is engaged to a boy who is in Kentucky now on the IFYE pro- gram. The oldest sister is married and she and her husband run "a ho- tel and restaurant on a small lake near by. There are alo two appren- tice girls here and a hired man. This farm has 202.5 acres, divided pasture. In most pahts of the coun- ry cattle are kept in the barn all year and feed is brought to them. There are 17.5 acres of ay land, 7.5 of this is clover, 113 acres are in winter wheat, 2.5 in winter rye; 3.35 acres in barley, 4 in oats, 5 in potatoes and 9 acres in mangels, Perhaps this will give some idea of the size of the fields here in Ger- many. But keep in mind that this is a large farm, with larger fields than most. However, because rainfall is three times as much as we have at home, they can use the land for two crops a year. After barley is harvested they plant some type of root-fodder crop for the cows. The house has six rooms down- stairs, two living-dining rooms, the kitchen, where we usually eat, a pantry, a room with the sink and one with the bake-oven for bread, refrigerator, churn and cream sep- arator. Th bathroom (fully modern) has the hottest water I've felt from a tap in Germany. Upstairs are six bedrooms and the the 'third floor is used for storage. Some of the bed- room furniture dates from about in this way: 87.5 acres in woods; 30  1700. acres in lake and marsh and 85 in I The farm is very old, since about field and pasture.

The house is only about 100 years old and is built with wide eaves, bal- conies and house and barn, all in one building. The balconies are lin- ed with flower boxes. On the way here I attended a dis- trict plowing match. It is patterned after U. S. plowing contests and national winners will go to the world contest in Ireland. There were classes for tractor and horse plow- ing and then divisions for ages over and under 18 years. The plowing was over at noon and prizes were awarded about 3 p. m. with the president of the government there to make the presentation. Prizes were books, paintings, clocks, brief cases etc and were furnished by the tractor and implement eompan/es, banks and so forth. Haven't been home an evening since I got here with the Schlossers. Friday we went to the locker plant and brought all the mea home be- cause there is room for it in the home freezer now. Saturday night we went for a boat ride on the lake. Sunday we visited Erni's fu- ture in-laws and last night Leni and I went to tbe Oprea Capriccio by Richard Strauss. The Munich play festival is on now so prices are higher than usual. The opera was to have been held out of doors, but i rained so was held in the Prinz Regent thearte. Because we had the cheapest tickets there was a delay in getting seats. Since we couldn't wait for the next perform- ance on Sept. 3, and because the ticket seller refused to refund our money, he finally gave us the only seats left in the housein a box. So we got the best possible seats and paid only one-fourth the usual price for them. We beth enjoyed the op- era all the more because of our bargain.
