Clipped From Fairbanks Daily News-Miner
the a of trip Old Eugene Karstens, a retired It. colonel from the Air Force is now visiting his mother Louise H. Karstens a guest here in our Pioneer Home, and while here having a great tiirte renewing acquaintances with many an school friend. Eugene was born in Nenana during the railroad building heyday. At this time father Harry Karstens was the ranger in charge of Mt. National Park, and with his mother spent much of his in the park, later coming to attend Fairbanks schools. Eugene and my daughter Cora took violin lessons from a Mrs. Bell who was helping with the school orchestra, besides giving private lessons. I do not think then is any musical instrument harder to listen to than the violin when children are practicing, unless it is the which I also had a few years listening to. Eugene and his Shirley have five children, three girls and two boys all living in Richardson, Tex.
