Their oldest daughter, Carolyn, entered Coe college at Cedar Rapids this fall as a freshman in anticipation of their conning to Iowa. In. her first letter back to her parents, then in .Jacksonville, she wrote, "It's cold here." Traveled Extensively The Smiths after getting matters arranged here plan to go back to Jacksonville,' pack up and bring back their household goods and their 2 other children, Junior, 12, and David, 11, and Mrs. Smith's father, Guy Davis, who is making his home with them. Few people have traveled so extensively over these United States from coast to coast as this couple. But out of all the places they have been, the Mason City area looks the best to them, they said. One of the reasons for coming back to Iowa is the excellent schools provided here. Lt. Cmdr. Smith, whose total flight hours add up to 7,317.5, has for the last 2 years been in charge of a utility squadron at the Jacksonville naval air station which involved flying transports across the country throughout the U. S. For 10 years prior to that he was with torpedo squadrons and it was his heroism on board the aircraft carrier Enterprise that caused him to be named in the book, "Then There Was One." His feat was repairing the steering gear of his ship in a temperature of 180 degrees. Among medals and awards earned are the Navy cross and the Distinguished Flying cross with 2 gold stars in lieu of a 2nd and 3rd air medal and the air medal with 2 gold stars in lieu of the 2nd and 3rd air medal. Enlisted at 16 The flyer's record begins with enlistment in the navy back in ^19, at the age of 16, following which he served in a series of capacities and learned to fly. In World war II besides the carrier Enterprise he served on the USS Ticonderoga as training officer of a torpedo squadron. r After the war he became a flight training supervisor at Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and subsequently was assigned to Jacksonville. In the war service he is credited with flying 23 combat missions wreaking havoc on the Japanese navy. The air group he flew with sank 35 enemy ships, damaged 93 and destroyed 163 enemy planes. Lt. Comdr. Smith alone is credited with 4 torpedo hits on Japanese ships, one on a large enemy cruiser. Lt. Cmdr. Smith is leaving the navy at what he regards the most critical time in the history of the service. He brought back with him a mimeographed copy of the statement of Capt. John G. Crommelin on the B-36 investigation, which were distributed to all members of his post. "I am in agreement with the stand of high navy officers, who contend the navy is being sunk under the new defense setup and thereby jeopardizing our safety." he said. Miss Ingebretson Weds R. Rasted Leland — Miss Lnrilre Mildred Ingebretson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Ingebretson of Forest City, and Richard Thorwald Rastad, Leland, son of Mr. and Mrs. Thorwald Rastad of Chicago, were married in the 1 Im'rriahu'el Lutheran church in Forest City, Oct. 4, by the Rev. A. 'L. Halvorson. A prelude of wedding music was played by Mrs. Joseph Peterson and Thomas Ing.ebretson was the soloist. 'The bride was given in marriage by her father. Attending her as matron of honor was her sister, Mrs. Nils Krupp, .of Nogales, Ariz. The bridegroom was attended by his former roommate, John Hauge, Forest City Ushers were Chester Ingebretson; brother of the bride and Charles Langerud, of Leland, cousin of the bridegroom. Following the wedding a reception was held in the church parlors for the couple, and for Mrs. Raslad's sister, Mr. and Mrs. Nils Krupp, whose marriage took place on Sept. 24 in Nogales. Mr. Rastacl's parents made their home in Leland for many years and he has been living here recently. He is employed with his brother, Harold Rastad, Leland, in the construction business.
