Geocache Description:

#30 in the VPS.

Charles Dawes, the vice-president under President Cooliedge, formerly served as Director of the Bureau of the Budget.  He was a co-winner of the 1925 Nobel Peace Prize for his work on World War I reparations.  He was a self-taught pianist and composer and his "Melody in A Major" was played as many functions as his signature tune.  Lyrices were added in 1951, and in 1958 Tommy Edwards recorded it as a pop tune titled, "It's All in the Game."  The single hit #1 in both the US and United Kingdom.  Perhaps obviously, Dawes is the only vice-president or Nobel Peace Prize winner to have a #1 hit single on the pop charts.

This cache may be obvious to you.  Step carefully.  Be safe.  Have fun!

** A note from IowaChupacabra: Hello! I am attempting to maintain Blue Grass Tom’s geocaches. Have fun as you travel and explore up and down these Iowa back country roads to find the geocaches in this series. As you do so, if you happen upon a wet log, torn bag, or cracked/damaged/missing container, and graciously make the choice to add/replace paper/bag or change out/replace a container, I would certainly appreciate it and Thank You for the help. I attempt to make a run through the area every few months to fix the problems noted in the logs, but there’s always something! Thank You!
