Bee becomes part of a novel vacation

The Mario Remme family, including parents and three children, took in the Threshing Bee as part of an adventurous week's vacation. The family, from Denni-son, Minn., traveled into Canada, then down through the Dakotas in a 1926 Model T camping out the entire time. They spotted an advertisement of the Bee on an Oak Grove milk carton while visiting relatives at Tyler and came Sunday. Naturally, their car was in the parade with the other antiques.
