wiWJfwg* CAMP LIFE p STORY TO 25 PS IN ALGONA ; Algona, Iowa, (Special)—Twenty-five soldiers stationed at the prisoner of war camp here know what prisoner of war life is like. Twenty-four of them were captured by German troops In the European theater of Oper- eratlons while one was fighting the Japanese on Bataan when American forces were forced to surrender In April of 1942. ' They were sent to this German prisoner of war camp in accord with army policies to assign liberated Americans to prisoner of •w&r camps throughout the United States. Those taken in Europe range from a 101st Airborne Division private, captured in Normandy on D-Day plus 2, to men who were rounded up during the Battle of the Bulge in December, 1944. All of the men are serving in Headquarters Detachment but one. He is a technical sergeant, member of the regular army, who was stationed with the 31st Division in the Philippines prior to and during the Japanese invasion. His term of imprisonment under the Japs lasted from the Death March in April 1942 to February 1945. He is attached to the Medical Detachment here. Famous Regiments Many famous divisions and regiments are represented among the former prisoners. Some of these include the Fighting 94th, the 106th or Golden Lion, the Screaming Eagle 101st Airborne, the 42nd or Rainbow, the Blood and Fire «3rd and others. Besides regular infantry outfits, there are men •who served in the 508th parachute infantry, 325th glider infantry and 23rd armored infantry. Most of the men will not discuss their experiences in detail with outsiders. However, in the barracks at night, they sometimes gather to swap experiences, mostly to find out how much worse their- camp was than those in •which others of their liberated «opvrades had been confined. I/ack of adequate food seems to be, the main complaint and they •winder at the fine looking condi- tiijn of German prisoners of war incarcerated at Algona. However, they realize the American way of life is not to abuse enemies who have fallen within our power. Some Good Stories While they will not talk about the seamy side of prison life, most of them like to relate some of the funny incidents that took place. Among the best is this one: The camp was raided by Allied planes. As they dove for shelter a German guard came up. He handed his rifle to a prisoner and entered the shelter first. The rest crawled in, with an American in possession of the weapon. When the alert was over, out they came, handing the rifle back to the befuddled Nazi. In another camp, the men would •confuse the "count," (periodic daily checkup) if the weather was •warm. "Germans can count best by. fives," one former prisoner •chuckled, "so we used to step up and make a row of six They would have to start over a.eain". In cold •weather, however, they stood the "count" formation quickly. rMost of the' men had been told 3ww to act if taken prisoners. Main object was to do exactly opposite what thf» Germans anticipated they would do. All of the former prisoners are - alad that in Algona it is the German who are behind the barbed •wires and not themselves. They have had enough of prisoner of •war life.

Ever See Potato Seed? Ralph Thayer, farmer near Belmond, brought to town a curiosity in the form of a potato vine with appurtenances resembling small tomatoes. The Belmond Independent points out that this phenomenon occurs every eight or nine years on potato land. The things that look like tomatoes are actually potato seed balls containing from 50 to 500 seeds. Often there are from 60 to 70 varieties of potatoes represented in the seed balls. Don't Overwork a Fork. A pitchfork can stab a man even though it is not in anybody's hands at the time. This is what happened to Albert Hagen of Glenwood who had set out to help a farmer do some stacking. Returning home, Hagen placed the fork in the back of his car which got out of control on a hill and overturned in a ditch. In the accident Hagen was pierced in the back by the fork. Nicely Scaled, Too. Bert Bishop of Osceola has a new twist to the fish story ending — "but they got away." Seems that Bert and his wife were fishing on a northern Iowa lake and had caught a nice string of fish when they decided to call it a day. Bert gave the outboard motor a whirl to start it and, zip! — the propeller neatly sliced the string on which the fish were strung. They sadly watched the day's catch disappear from sight. Corn Bomb Hits Japan. In one of the last carrier strikes against Tokyo, Lt. Comm. B. E. Brown, USN, Creston, Iowa, had the satisfaction of fulfilling a pledge made to a Creston man, True LaMssters.
