Evelyn went 'overseas in November, 1943, after preliminary training in her work. The journey over was on the Queen Elizabeth. The ship landed its human cargo in Scotland, and the Red Cross contingent was taken to London, via train. Until February of 1945, Miss Bode was in England. She spent some time in Red Cross work in London, during which period she became acquainted with the German V-bombs, then spreading terror and destruction in the English capital.

At 6:15 p. m. a cabin at George's Cafe was set ablaze by a flash fire from an oil heater. The cabin was occupied by employees at the afe. Chief loss was about evenly divided between the interior of the cabin, and the personal belongings of the occupants, all of which were ruined. Barns, Truck Burn At 7:15 p. m., firemen answered! heir second call. Two barns at| he rear of the Ralph Moe and ' Ole Moe residence at West Call and Ridgely streets caught fire when lubricating oil that was be- ng- heated by Ralph on a stove exploded.

The manager became ill shortly afterward, so she fount herself as manager—and unable to speak a word of French at that time. Hired Russian Orchestra "I -hired a 10-piece Russian orchestra," Miss Bode said, "and then we went to town. The. music and club iboth proved very popular with the'boys, and I had lots of nice.mademoiselles as waitresses/- She told of using the sign language 'and interpreters in:working vith French chefs, and then her black market problems began. "The club was located in what was evidently an -ancient palace or , something 'of the 'sort," said Miss Bode. "I found food disappearing, and when a search got underway we discovered a maze if stairways-and dark cellars that would do credit to a Frankenstein movie. Down" in these cellars, diligent M. P. investigators recovered most of the food that had disap peared."

COUNTY AUDITOR IMMERFALL FINDS $113,746 INCREASE Kossuth county taxpayers will have to open their purse Strings just a little bit wider 1 , early next year, when tax time rolls around to pay the 1945 tax bills. According to compilations made' by iLeo Immerf all, county auditor, the Kossuth tax bill foi* 1945 will be about $113,746 more than was the case this year for 1944. Over Million Dollars About $1,150,000 will be needed to pay the-'45 tax bill} Immerf all said. This iff for total- tax—toWn- ship, county, school and municipal. , i Algona will have the larg-. " est proportionate increase of any place In the county. This " is due chiefly to the fact that the school levy Is Up 91c per thousand of assessed valuation, and the incorporated levy of the city is up $5,68 per ,' thousand. ' This is due chiefly to the fact hat storm sewer expense, an air- ort levy, and street improve-, ments are added to the com- ne. tax and will be paid for in' 945. • County Levy Up. $1.10 The general county levy is up $1.10 per thousand. This is due^ chiefly to a boost in the road levy, and several computeory 'slate 1 levies. However Kossiith is making no poor fund or county insane 1 levy at all. In the rural .areas, the increase as stated includes both county and township levy. First installment of 1946 taxes becomes due on Jan. 1, 1946, and v becomes delinquent on April 1 ot, next year. , , ', , Audltor.Glves Example As an example,. Auditor Immerfall said that an Algona home ' with an assessed valuation of $1,000 paid $56.18'in'1944 taxes, tipn.-This represents r ™. of $0.18 per thousand of, assessed valuation.; > -\",, , '£ 1?
