^A!^tt ; i|fe^ : ^i^^^^lijteK IN INDIA 27 MOS. '•' Bernard Green, son of Mrs. Tobitha Wilson ,of Algona, and Who his mother w&s associated in Wilsons' Bakery, now Finn's, returned Monday evening from foreign duty in the army, 27 . months of which were spent in the, C-B-I theatre, in India. The Algonan was connected with the air transport command ..of the army, and was stationed most of the time in the northeast 'corner of India. The airfield was the last one before the transport . flyers hit "the Hump." "Only Algona person I saw in the whole time was Ruth Payne, . army nurse," Bernard reported. Ruth is now married to an army officer. With a rating of staff sergeant, Bernard also has a small navy ' *xperience. He spent 45 days at sea, getting to India, and on the •'return trip came through Suez 'and the Atlantic, thus completing ,an ocean voyage around the world. '' He.added that he knew about 10 words in Hindustan, Chinese . and Burmese, and so far as flying went "did no flying I could avoid." ), He was connected with records '.'• administration at the air base. Melvin Knolls of Baltimore Write Mrs. Melvin Knoll of Baltimore, Md., the former Adris Anderson, "has written her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Anderson, that her husband has now been released from the'hospital. Melvin entered the hospital in August of last year suffering from a lung ailment. He is still under the doctor's care but can remain at home. Mr. Knoll has been an employee of the Glenn Martin airplane plant at Baltimore the past five years. He hopes to be able to re. sume work by the first of the year. .' Ordis now holds an office job Whittemore Writes df Recent Expeditibn to Japan Donald M. Ludwig, S-lc, formerly of Whittemore, recently wrote a' letter to his wife telling her of his trips to Japan. Since being assigned to a transport he has had several Interesting experiences. On September 25th the U. S. S. Lenawee with other transports, were forming a convoy and were headed for Hiroshima; and sirtce that time, has made two trips to Japan, back and forth from Okinawa and was turned back twice because of typhoons. Also on August 14th the Lenawee was the ninth ship of the APA-AKA group to pull into Tokyo Bay. It passed the battleship Missouri, approximately at the time of the surrender ceremonies were taking place. During this time the U. S. S. Leuawee's premiers were at Iwo Jima and Okinawa where fierce fighting was at hand. Seaman Ludwig was one of the many men who watched the un- forgetable flag raising on Mt. Surabachi. Don expects to be in the states sometime in late fall after spending the past year in the Pacific. He is also anxious to make the acquaintance of his smallest daughter, now fourteen months old. Tire Situation Critical Although most news from the rationing front has been growing more and more encouraging, the tire situation right now is the most critical that it has been at any time since tire rationing ,was instituted, according to Charlie Casford, OPA state'' tire chief at Des Moines. "We are nearly out of the woods so far as truck tires and farm implement tires are concerned," said Casford, "but last month 45,000 qualified applicants for passenger car tires were "back-lig- ged" because available quotas are far below the terrific demand."

Alba, formerly professor at the University of the Philippines, Manila, addressed the Soroptimist Club Wednesday noon, while in Algona on a two day speaking engagement in which he also talked to the student bodies of the three Algona public schools. Dr. Alba gave his views on the solution of world peace and a better understanding among nations, doing away with' suspicion and racial hatreds. One idea that he expressed was that the emancipation of women in the Orient would tend to bring about more peaceful and better living conditions as women are 'given a voice in regulating family society. When the Japanese invaded the Philippines, Dr. Alba left the University and joined the resistance forces. He fought with guerillas and later transferred to European theatre of operations, serving in England, Scotland, France, Belgium and Germany. He has been released from the service and is on a lecture tour in the United States. Another guest of the Club Wednesday was Charlotte Black, daughter of Cecil Black, who will tie an honorary member of the Soroptimist club during the month of December. She was chosen the first girl to hold such a membership, as part of a Soroptimist project. A different girl from the Homemaking department will oe honored each month. She assists her grandparents and her father, a War II veteran, in making a home for herself and younger brothers.
