Says This Relumed Service Man (A Weekly Review With An Overseas Veteran) Merle Wcllendorf, back in his automobile repair business after 39 months in the Navy, says •/Just Call Me Mister." Entering the service in 1942, Merle's background of work with motors and engines came in handy, and he became a motor machinist's mate in the Nuvy. For three months after boot training he worked on new construction, and then spent a year on a mind sweeper in convoy duty. During that time his ship was credited with destroying 38 German mines and four submarines, two of them off Norfolk in 1943. He then spent two years in the amphibious forces. During his sea duty, all of which was in the Atlantic and Mediterranean areas, he sailed from New Foundland to the eouator. He Closed his'automobile repair business, lock, stock and barrel, when he enlisted, and reopened it Oct. 15 oh South Phillips St., Algona. Merle is 46 years old, but doesn't look it, and like a good many veterans has little Merle Wellendorf to say about his experiences unless you pry some basic information out of him. He left the service as a motor machinist's mate first class.

In response to the evident need ; for homes, even if temporary, Mayor Frank Kohlhaas, City Attorney Joe Lowe, and Leighton Misbach, secretary of the Algona Chamber of Commerce visited the prison camp here, and invcs- 'igated procedures for obtaining some of the buildings for temporary housing locally. Also, in the process of doing that, inquiry was begun as to the possibility of Algona obtaining the prisoner-of-war camp site,' and some of the permanent buildings, for use as a municipal airport. Moving Prisoners Out The Algona camp has not officially been declared surplus, but the German prisoners remaining were being moved out. Some 600 of them were taken by truck, Saturday, to Fort Crook, Neb. OtKers were scheduled to go this week, Lt. Col. A. T. Lobdell, commanding officer, ^stated Monday. . ';•'.'• Transfer of the Germans to Nebraska, for shipment from there to Europe, was delayed, due to hazardous road conditions X in southern Iowa. ' ; One .German prisoner was badly injured when a truck skidded over a 20-ft. 'em- . bankmeni. Saturday, near Carroll. There were 25 pris- ' oners in Ihc Iruck, but only one was injured. . "We don't expect to tujTi off-, the lights until about the middled of February," the commanding officer said. He added that about? 100 prisoners and a .small '' car.e of the " carnp uritil?-f Inal ! disposition.; of it 'is made.'

' i; '-;..',-.•'•) The "earmarking," however;.. simply means that officials have expressed themselves as wanting certain structures, "and doesn't: necessarily moan that they will 1 be obtained. First, the camp must be declared surplus and turned over to whatever board will handlu its final sale. At .that time, the city, 1 . if it expects to be in the running, must be ready for action. : * At the present time, while plans are still being formulated by city and Chamber of Com-:' merco leaders, it seemed likely i that Algona would (1) request; that certain' of the buildings be, turned over, to the city for hous-, ing, and (2) request that the land . and permanent portions of the- camp be turned over to the city' for an airport. , If either of these are done,; housing might be provided. In . the event that the city might get the land, buildings such as the'; hospital at the camp might be v , converted into apartments. If the city obtains only some ; buildings, they would -have to be; moved into the city and set up on an appropriate site. Suggestion has been made that; this might be done on the city«-V owned block m' the west part of the city, used at one time as a tourist camp park. ; •, Another local suggestion, still a rumor and not acted upon, is! that a representative of Algona be sent f tQ Waishington to dite matters, • CONTINUE TP INCREASE The number 1 ot Algona ciU?ens| finding .themselves oUt of or apartments i^ steadily i ing, -Two men high school ers, including i pen Miller, pal, are , I?prty 'hpmele W..
