Man, Wife, Jap Prisoners 3 Years, Tell of Horrors —Algona Upper Des Moines Newsfoto Above, left to right, are Col. A. T. Lobdell, Mrs. Harry H. Perton, and Sgt. Perton. The Pertons, who were Japanese prisoners-of-war for many months, spoke at the Prisoner-of-War camp recently in behalf of the bond drive. They also tell Upper; Des Moines readers something of what being a Japanese prisoner meant in a story on this, page. Liberation . of the Philippines means more to Technical Sergeant Harry H. Perton of the Medical Detachment of. the Algona Prisoner of War Camp and his wife than it does to the average resident of Kosusth county. Both Sergeant and Mrs. Perton experienced more than three years imprisonment in Japanese prisoner of war camps in the Philippines with- . out seeing- each other, although at tunes they were only five blocks apart. Sergeant Perton^ honorably dis- STATE CONSIDERS P-O-W CAMP FOR "LITTLE ELDORA" The i Algona camp has been prisoner-of-war mentioned as a ANDREWS RUMORS APPEAR VERIFIED Rumors that Dr. W. D. Andrews would close or dispose of his osteopathic practice and hospital in past week, /' h Sunday, on* business for a few days, ^^ Algona, current the appeared to be true. Dr, Andrews and his wife, who left some 10 days ago on a vacation flight into the southwest, were expected back today, and the rumors will be verified or officially denied, From verified communications received here from Dr, Andrews, it was indicated that he intended to locate in New Mexico, and soon, ' » Dr. Andrews, srnce returnnig to Algona, his home community, to practice; has established a successful hospital and clientele. He has also taken a very active part in community and civic life, has been a member of the Algona school board, helped in development of plans for a municipal airport, and aided in many ways in community development, Qfeigel In Hospital Frank Geigel was sent to the Kossuth hospital Saturday, Nov. 3", with phalbitis, an inflamatjon of the limbs.

Wedding License Eugene H, Wray, Jr., former Alona young man, now of Omaha, nd/Aimes Pelisefc of Algona, were issued 9 marriage license by Helen clerk pf the district court, that they become boys." The state Board of Control, Monday, was reported in state news stories, to be considering a move to acquire either the Clarfnda or Algona sites. The Clarinda camp was recently. declared surplus property, after being closed. No action will beHaken until the board has investigated more fully however. Segregation of the "bad boys'* was advocated by Gov. Robert D. Blue. If such action was taken, it would be a temporary move. State plans call for construction of a permanent detention building, at Kldora, some distance from the present building,, surrounded by a fence. It is unlikely that the army will finish its use of the prisoner-of- war -camp here for some months, however, and doubtful if the P-O-W setup and "bad boy" program would mix. ,-•••• :" In the meantime, there has been no wholesale escape of inmates from the Eldora school for the past two or three days, which is a favorable sign. Newspapers have lost track of how many "breaks" there have been there in the past month or so. JAILED HERE ON BAD CHECK COUNT J. E.

Bayoneted By Guard, One of the strict rules forbade internees to watch airplanes flying over the Santa Tomas camp where she was imprisoned. "But the daring of the Yanks was marvelous to see," said Mrs. Perton, "arid it was almost Impossible to obey that rule. One day a guard came upon me while I was watching our planes. He asked me what I was looking at. I said 'nothing' and at that he stuck a bayonet in my. side.';,. *" Sergeant Pprton said he had an idea his ,\yife was at Santa Tomas but was not certain if Mrs. Perton was alive. • i "At first civilians were not permitted to write, so it was not until October 1944,"that I was able to send word to my husband, more than two years after I was interned at Santa Tomas, January 2. 1942," said-Mrs. Perton. , However, Sergeant Perton had been able to send cards to his wife. But since the cards bore, no camp names, only numbers, Mrs. Per*ton could not tell where 'her husband was,- The'messages were limited to 25 words and those were only words checked off a form, card. Only means of' identifying the writer was by the signature. Shelled For 18 Days In describing the shelling "of Santa Tonaas for 12 days before liberation Mrs. Perton said it was inconceivable how "we could get out Of there alive."
