Heinselman, Plymouth farmer who has judged recent stamp collections for the Mason City hobby shows, received a letter Thursday that was cancelled on the first United States to Germany trip of the Hindenburg zeppelin D-LZ 129. The first flight cancellation on the envelope is quite large and portrays the Hindenburg; at the stop, with the name underneath it and the words "First Flight" directly below. Maps of the new and old world are portrayed below this with the route of the" Hindenburg marked from Lakehurst to Frankfurt. A large "1936" i£ below this and the tip of the American shield with wings to either side. On the bottom in German script is "Frankfurt am Main." Mr. Heinselman sent the letter for the first flight trip from the United States to Germany. Since the United States issued no special stamp for this occasion, Mr. Heinselman used the Trans-Pacific air- ruail stamp used for mail on the China Clipper. The cancellation on the back of the envelope is in German "Mit Luftschiff Hindenburg beforclert Frankfurt am Main." The postage on the Hindenburg is 40 cents. Mr. Heinselman has collected about 20.000 stamps. He also has a Silver Jubilee cancellation on a silver envelope, that was issued in commemoration of the "Kings Jubilee" celebration last year. The picture of King George V and Windsor castle are on the stamp, with the dates 1910-35 engraved. I Cleor Lake Calendar Saturday—Dance at North Shore < :ountry club, Jimmie Smith playing.
