ONLY NON RATIONED Prisoners Boll Their OwriJ They Either Work Or Gd On Bread and Water Diet; 80c Day Wage In Script. The internment and handlihg of prisoners of war is an entirely new government activity in' this vicinity and it naturally follows that there is < considerable curiosity concerning .the administrative methods of this, new function. Many questions are being askea in Kossuth regarding the German prisoners of war, as to their haftd- ling and the treatment accorded them. Some of these questions are critical of the war departments policy for handling the prisoners. Much, of the criticism results from a lack of complete informaUom Lt Col. Lobdell Interviewed'* • s In order that Upper Des Monies ' readers may better understand '$ matters in connection with the Algona prisoner of war camp, an Upper Des Moines representative interviewed Lt. Col. A. T. Lobdell, commanding officer at the camp, and many of the details t concerning the handling and treat- ' ment of the prisoners Were cleared up. ' "Thei Geneva Convention,. strictly adhered to by the War Department in the handling Of prisoners of War, is law in this ' country," the colonel explained. "Tihat treaty was made in time of peace when presumably heads were cool and reason prevailed. The world generally has been critical of these nations which d«!-' scribe treaties as 'scraps Of paper.' : It is the solemn duty of the War Department to carry out the provsions of the law, at least .until that law,has been amended by"'competent authority. So far there ; has been no change in tHe law. *' No Beef For Prisoners "A truck driver who delivers fresh meat from the Decker Pack- , ing Co. at (Mason City, wonders , who gets the meat.

Bjustrom, local furniture dealers, are in receipt of a letter .from a crew member of the. B-17 on which Wayne served in Italy. On the day, March 20, when Wayne was reported as missing while on a mission over Jugoslavia he was serving with a crew on. another B-17, and which was downed by "uncharted" flak. The writer seems to 'have faith in the hope that Wayne bailed out successfully from the B-17 and that he is probably a German prisoner of war in the Jugoslavia area.
