Lickteig, Wesley and who has been" in the servici four years and is now in Germah siface last March, mailed a clipping from an American newspaper printed in Germany ahd written by a captain, which sets out a good argument favoring the return of the GI to his homeland The clipping: . . 1 "To many thousands of soldiers sweating out V-E Day in the ETO seeing ,the film "Two Down and One To Go" offered little, if any, encouragement on prospects • 6ft •getting home soon. My interpretation of the picture was that releases from the army depend al- jnost entirely on boys becoming * 18 years of age, "There in fl large reservoir of healthy men in the states between the ages of 18 and 35 who have stayed out of the army through deferment of one kind or another. We have men in the army qualified to fill any civilian job in the states who are entitled to be sent •home. Their chances of getting home within the next two years depend upon replacements available. • "If all civilian men deferred for other than physical disqualifications were now drafted in {he next six months, thousands of soldiers with one to three years service, and lacking the miraculous 85 points for discharge, could be sent home. \ "This plan, if adopted, vfould open up many jobs to the returning vet in the higher salaried bracket. Men not in the armed forces have had the opportunity in the last four years to accumulate large nest eggs. If they are dratted now they're already set with an economic cushion when they are released. "These men also have the inside track at present on a majority of new business opportunities and are leaving their present jobs daily to avail themselves of these opportunities. This will make it tougher on the returning vet one or two years from now. "Congress should take immediate steps to remove all deferments for other than physical disqualifications, and get these men jnto training centers where they could -become replacements for veterans U.S. SAVINGS y BONDS (COST ' --- '- -~~ --- -* 1 " '" Berg Discharged After 121 Mission* ""'Swea-Eagle! , M-Sgt< Earl Berg recently with the AAP f " ' button Station N6. ,4 at Ana, Calif., received an honorable discharge and is home vis > King'his patents, the Andrew Bergs. • Sgt. • Berg, an engineer :pn a C-17 With the Fifth All?

Probably no other building in the history of Algona combines more of the romantic and sentimental atmosphere of "ye olden days" than the old water mill which was situated north of town now occupied by the city dump. The old bridge has now been replaced with a modern concrete structure and the old millpond has been filled in and this fork of the Upper Des Moines river has been completely wiped out. But memories of the "Old Mill" linger in the minds of oldsters. The old wooden mill was begun August, 1865, by M. M. Foster and served as both a saw and grist mill. Keeping the dam in place seemed to occupy most of the several owners' time and as much as $5,000.00 was spent in making this permanent. It has been estimated that if Mr. Foster had held onto his land and never seen the mill he would have been $50,000 richer. From 1881 to 1897 the building was improved, steam machinery was added and flour was made. But it was a money-loser all the time. It finally burned to the ground in a very spectacular fire Jan. 31, 1S|02, with a loss of $8,000.00 to the owners who had let the insurance lapse only a few days before. Various paintings and reproductions of the old mill hang in homes and business houses in AJgona and the photo above is one of the best pictures available. Wesley Pastor Acts As Songleader At Bible Conference Wesley: -Rev. E. W. Lindgren, pastor of the local Congregational church, left Monday for Cooperstown, N. D., where he will act as songleader at the 21st annual Bible Conference held there from June 26 to July 4.. Next Sunday Rev. Fred Nelson of Springrove, Minn., will .fill the local Congregational pulpit and the pulpit in the Evangelical church at Britt and in the Upper Flat church.

Humphrey, now in Germany, tells of conditions there as well as comparable conditions in Italy and France and asserts that Germany is riot as badly situated as might be thought here. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl N. Humphrey, Algona, and ,the letter was written from Lonsee, Germany, as follows: "This 'country isn't as bad off as you folks might think. People here have plenty to eat and are raising more . all the time. All the people live in towns here and farm the ground around the but- side. Their farms are small ami- the people are very good ,at crop rotation. The work is all done by hand and mostly toy women. The farmers don't, have very many horses so they drive, their milk cows on the wagons. " Many of them work a horse and a cow together and it seems to work out all right, tout it sure looks funny. They raise more fruit here than any, country' I've .been, in., yet 'and the trees were sure 'nice'this last spring w.hen they were in bloom. You may not believe it, but lytfS have walked for days at a tirri§ through nothing but orchards arid very well kept, too. : ' ; ' "France was not too good, of course. I blame the people there largely -more than anything else. Of course it's true that the Germans took everything they could move -while they were there, but the French don't try to keep places clean and nice as they do here. Things 'to eat were scarce in France and the people have very little clothing. They wore wooden, shoes and their clothing was made of anything they'cpdia find. But Italy was ten times worse than France so you can frn-^ agine how the people live in that country. ^ "In all three countries the nouse and barn were one building with the chicken house' in thV basement, the woodshed is upstairs and the manure piles are right at the front door of toe house. ' ; "The big cities here were hit worse than the small town. In fact I've seen and helped take many big cities and we left them as flat as we could—I mean really torn up, and that is one thing! you didn't see so much of back jri Italy or France," completed- 121 .missions and combat hours in the Pacific. 365 HOSPITAL NEWS General Hospital June 13—Wayne Lein, Kanawha, surgical.
