Fifty years ago this month I started a college course called "Press Photography.'' I had just transferred to South Dakota State College from Creighton University, and photography was a sophomore-level course for journalism majors. These days, I suppose the course would be taught with smart phones and various tablets and other handheld electronic devices. Back in my time, the camera of choice was an unwieldy contraption manufactured by Graflex and called a Speed Graphic.

"The driver became disoriented in the fog and drove into the north ditch and rolled the truck onto its side," Nelson said.

Dear Heloise: After reading your column about how to find a lost pet, I just had to send an idea that has successfully been implemented in our area several times. Leave an article of clothing with your scent in an area where your pet was last seen. Check the area several times a day to see if your dog is sitting there -- with the scent of his or her owner. -- Ellen D., Bow, N.H. Good advice! Also, if your pet must be hospitalized or spend the night away, the same hint works! I send a T-shirt or bath towel with Cabbie. -- Heloise
