Harold has written his parents, Mr. and Mrs. I. W. Nelson, of Lone Rock, of several narrow escapes in the Yellow Sea. Signalman Nelson writes: "Well, here I am in Tsingtao, China, and it looks like we may go to Inclo-China, too. Boy, were we on edge coming through the Yellow Sea. That's what they mined so heavily to keep the Japs from carrying supplies to China. They had had a lot of minesweepers in there a week before we came, but as it happened a typhoon came blowing through it and stirred nil the mines up again. Spot Many Mines On the morning of October 8 three mines were reported in less than five minutes and two more about 10 minutes later. The convoy was scattered all over the horizon and half scared to death. That afternon at 4 o'clock the escort ahead of column 3 reported a horned type mine 400 yards on the starboard side and directly in front of the ~Brookings (my shi'p). The captain ordered everyone top side. We passed it 100 yards on the port side. I slept with my clothes on and life jacket under my head on top side for three nights. "I can't understand why we arc monkeying around In China's civil war. We have 24 ships in here. There were 54 fighter planes that brought us in the channel and now anytime you look up you can count 75 or 100. "We are the first American, ships to come 'here since the war started with the Japanese and Chinese in 1937. Besides our ships nnd their crews there are about 24,000 marines. $L Worth 2,000 Chinese "One American dollar is worth 2,000 Chinese dollars. So, on the ship, we can change $10 in Chinese money and have $20,000 to spend; But a bottle of pop costs $25, a wrist watch that would cost $30 in America costs $10,000 here or $5 in American money. The American service men . ruin every port they enter because they have a hundred times as much money as the country does. "While on leave at Tsingtao we were mobbed by a pack of children all selling something—from a watch that the hands fell off of 40 years ngo to an old broken down-'bicycle without any handle barSf Arid-then the beggars/ came along with a get-up that even Hollwood can't imagine. Box of Souvenirs "I have a Japanese-made wooden box that I am filling with souvenirs, including a Jap rifle I picked up in Japan. I had hoped to be home for Christmas, but doubt if I will make it now." Harold volunteered for the navy two years ago in March, 1943. After completing his boot training at Farragut, Idaho, he attended signal school. He was then assigned to the U. S. S. Brookings, an APA transport. SWEAlUXiUARYTO SEND VETS GIFTS Swea City: The American Legion Auxiliary of Swca City is asking for gifts to be included in packages now being prepared for veterans in the Knoxville hospital. Mrs. Charles Schemmel and. Mrs. Russell Myers are in charge of the drive. Boxes have been placed in the Rystad, Gamble, Bravender and Infelt stores for contributions. Gifts will go to the mentally ill, and the following gifts are suggested: . Books (mysterious classics, Bibles, comics, maps, etc.), stationery and games, playing cards, toilet articles, and things to wear such as sweaters, T shirts, handkerchiefs, slippers, sox, pipes and tobacco. The drive will continue until Dec. 7. Carrol Arm. Glidden gardeners appear to go in for growing strange carrots. In the Glidden Graphic office, Phil Rice has displayed a carrot grown this year that is about six inches long, from this two "arms" grow and hold another carrot between them. Phil grew a freak c-arrot some three years ago that is still on display in the Graphic office. The one grown three years ago was hung up and dried out. It is now as hard as a rock. MEALS TURNED TO GAS LIKE A GAS FACTORY One lady said recently that her stomach used to be like a "gas factory!" That is, when she ate a "meal it seemed to turn right into gas. She was always bloated, had awful stomach gas pains, daily headaches and constant irregular bowel action. Now. however, this lady says she is FREE OF STOMACH GAS and she says the change is due to taking SYS-TONE. Her rneals agree with her. No gas or bloat after eating. Headaches and constipation are gone. "Oh! what relief." states this .lady. "Why don't other gas and constipation sufferers get SYS-TONE?" SYS-TONE contains 12 Great Herbs; they cleanse bowels, clear gas from stomach, act on sluggish liver and kidneys. Miserable people soon feel different all over. So don't go on suffering!
