He emphasized, however, that the association., is depending on legislative appropriation for Ihe liquidation of Us debt an.l the-construction 'of permanent buildings. \Valter C. Guy,, chairman of the Chamber of Commerce committee in charge of raising funds to buy Ihe' site, said Little Rock will de- - . . rive permanent benefits from the " We disembarked near Reykjavik, purchase.

We -'— — - 1 - made our quarters in some little Nisscn huts which British troops and (lie marines before us hud used. • . Conditions Were pretty rugged. We immediately set to work to rebuild the camp." The iroops lived In camps. Each had about 20 hutments, and Us own little PX. The enlisted men built club houses for (lie officers as part of their work. Needless to say, life was rather monotonous. In the summer, unless rain prevented, the men played baseball and Softball. In the winter, they rend, played poker. ,or worked crossword puzzles. Occasionally they were permitted to go >ip to ski "lodges, using the camp skis ami snowshoes. At Ihe time these. American troops landed in Iceland, the fear show each year. Mr. Guy said thai-some of the pledges made by residents of Greater Little Rock, at the time Ihe Chamber of Commerce'was soliciting, funds, have not been paid.

Six south MisLisdppt white men will go to trial next Monday morning; on charges of having- ^'ss.xr.ars.sBS' «,£,«- s planes would fly over, and would sometimes drop bombs. But at the time Hart returned to the states, tlie Germans had ceased this annoyance; most of the German radios had been located on the island and -silenced. "Passes didn't mean much any- Impossible because of Ihe cold cll- ma(e and the (net thai Iceland was an .Island of volcanic formation. Neither trees nor vegetation grew, except a mossy substance, upon which doincstb thcep and ponies grazed. "That's why our diet al first wns million,, more million, and slill more," Hurt explained. "Of couise we could get beefsteak,- but WL learned thai Iceland beefsteak was poiiy meat. The stores in town had few vegetables or fruits for sale; apples were 15 and 20 cents apiece We found that one way to make friends, especially will) the glib was to give them hard eiuuiy <im sometimes canned pineapple -from ithc messhnll." Hart's opinion of the girls Is that tliey were pretty enough, Just like American girls. Their leelh weic! bad, however, as bone building foods were so hard to get. The people themselves lived chiefly on fish. A common sight was that of the natives walking down Ihe city streets carrying n two-fish, which would serve both us their 'dinner and supper. The pony meat, mutton, and also eggs imported from Eng- Innd, were the only variations In Hie fish diet. "One thing we did appreciate, said Hurl, "was the aurora borcilib 'this phenomenon was quite common, and always extremely beautiful. It never got dark in Iceland, but twilight in tuc summer lime occurred about two or three o'clock In the morning, in winter lime, twi- liglit fell about eleven o'clock in the forenoon." One of the native customs which Hart observed while in Iceland was lie old funeral processions. Motorized vehicles were scarce, so the people, instead of riding, walked ilong behind (lie hearse, the. older people In formal native dress the younger usually in the more modern attire. 'I'll admit that Iceland was an experience,' Hart admitted, "but it was sure grand news that I was returning t D the slates. Though it took us 12 days aboard ship going, we flew back in eleven hours." "And you can bet," h c added with a grin, "that i never want to see mutton again."

The latest modern Shl 'evep6rt apartments are built of solid concrete. According to Hart, miles of pipe lines .draw water from the innumerable hot geysers into homes and buildings to furnish heat. But the homes outside the city and the huts in which the soldiers live, had stoves similar lo the coal stoves nt BAAF. They burned coal imported from England;, the fires were out except when the stoves required weaning.
