r.Man VisHs the s of Farmer Nazi Big Shots Hit G, E. Wiesbaden, Germany. — From Pa'fis I flew to Germany ofi a big 047 U. S. army carrier plane, picked in <with ' alt enormous amount of freight, and a/strange assembly of war correspondents, both men and women, soldiers, government experts, and investigators, and other people, on governmental or military missions. Twenty-two passengers in addition to the freight and baggage. •> , ' It was a clear day and across the beautiful valleys below the marks of war were still visible. Damaged bUildihgs, wrecked bridges, and huge craters marking the spot where a bomb or shell had landed'.. We could trace the progress of armed campaign. It was not, however, until we neared the German border that real destruction came to view. My first stop in Germany was at Mannheim. I thought the damage here was terrific, ib«t by comparison to cities I saw later, this •was mild. Wiesbaden Resort On the plane from Mannheim I talked with Capt. William Pratt of the U. S. army and Catherine Coyne, war correspondent with the Boston Herald. They advised that I stop at Wiesbaden.. I am glad I took this advice. Wiesbaden was the (famous mineral bath resort where wealthy Germans including the Nazi officials came for rest, baths and various kinds of recreation. It was here that Von Ribbentrop married into the Heinkel family, and .began his career as a wine salesman, which association eventually led him into Nazi politics. His wife's father •was a prosperous manufacturer of •champagne and other wines here. Hitler Celebrated During all the days of Nazidom in Germany, Wiesbaden was a Javorite meeting place of Hitler, Goebbels, Von Rundstedt, Himmler and other "big shots" of the party. Gen. Kesselring had his headquarters here, and was once •wounded and his aid killed by bombs in an air attack on the city. It is reliably reported that Hitler, Goerring, Himmler, Von Rundstedt and the other higher-up members of the party held a celebration here last New Years eve in joy over the results of the "battle of the bulge." Bathed In Hitler's Tub I had a mineral bath in Hitler's <ywn bath parlor and probably felt far more secure than he did in spite of the -fact that he had a big red cross painted on the roof. There was no evidence that any •war wounded had ever . been quartered here. Regardless of the •exposure I came out of the bath without getting the "'super-man itch" or the "world conquest eczema."'! am staying here at a U. S. army, PRO headquarters located in a grand old apartment house complete with Nazi literature and German pictures. Most of the palatial homes of the high ranking German officials have fceen wrecked by bombs, as ' great portions of all the city. Displaced Persons Camp Near the city I spent an afternoon at one of the many displaced persons camps that may be found in Germany and -.the occupied territories. In this camp, which is located in a former German army military school, are some 15,000 people. Eight or pine thousand of them are Russians, about two thousand Poles—the 'balance Czechs, Luxembourgers, Y uig o s 1 a v s, Itallians, French, and many erf questionable nationality, lineage, and parentage. They are mostly slave laborers, and of all ages irom infants up. They are being •well fed, but otherwise their living conditions would hardly meet the approval of puritan minded Americans. They are • quartered largely according to nationality, and with little regard to sex or moral turpitude. Nazi Collaborators The. people in these camps, and the others of their kind represent a grave problem, because it is claimed that in most cases they were easy collaborators with the Germans and their own countries will not now receive them. Many of the younger ones do not know who they are or where they belong, and few of them have either the knowledge or the desire to ibuild themselves into useful citizens of any country.'Many thousands of these displaced persons have been confined to camps like the-one at Wiesbaden. There are other thousands rpaming the streets and highways trying to find a' place for' themselves—good looking girls, and others, some of them former mistresses of German officers, personay servants, entertainers, family groups who have been kept together by lull collaboration, thieves, murderers, ««>Dably\ fcome forttief German soldiers in hiding—all manner and klfld W peottle in a milling seething mass* at Human flotsam. , The tlMKRA ,ofgani2a«6tt has taken ovef the .task of trying to relocate these people, but in truth it is a gigantic problem that only years of time can settle. A Broken ^Wiesbaden Wiesbadeti, 6nce thW pride of Germany-ibeatiful, industrious and .prosperous, Is now a silent city of broken buildings and blast* ed homes. frot entirely flattened like many of the German cities, but its grandeur gone, -Wiesbaden and its people sit silent- .and sullen Waiting the future, and we wonder what the future can hold for a city built largely for .pleasure, when there can be little pleasure recommended for the people of the German nation in. our generation.

Podfe St. Algona, jowa _ GREEnCOLOIllflL FUROflCE SERVICE Official U. S. Marine Photo San Diego, Calif.: The "Forgotten Battalion" of the Marine Corps has returned to the United States. The "Forgotten" outfit — self named—is the Second 155 mm Howitzer Battalion .which served overseas 34 months and participated in six major operations— Tulagi, Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Sai- pan, Guam and Iwa Jima. Going overseas in July, 1942, the unit supported each of the six Marine divisions in at least one operation, and its members have earned five battle stars and two presidential citations. Soon the men will be scattering across the country for their first furloughs in more than three long years. With them they will carry a banner painted by Marine Cpl. Jimmy Fraricavllla of Los Angeles, following the bloody Iwo Jima campaign. When the last of the "Forgotten Battalion" has reached home the banner will be sent to General Alexander A. Vandegrift, marine corps cpmmandant. Two IpWa tnembers who > have been through all six campaigns together are shown with the famous 'sign.' They both enlisted in the .marine corps on the same date, Noyernber 12, 1941, at the recruiting' office in Des Moines. They are Cpl. Bernard Reilly (left) of Lone Rock and Cpl. Eugene Weiser of Dujsuque. They are both in the stages' now. Cpl. Reilly arrived in-Lone Rock last Thursday for a Sp-day leave at"h8nW 5 with relatives pnd friends. He is the son of t)he late E. W.
