Harold Voigt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Voigt, now stationed at Tokyo, Japan, is one of -the members of his company who have adopted a seven-yoar- old waif, found on Okinawa during the fighting, and who will be sent to the U. S. and educated here. In May, 1945, or, Mo'^bu peninsula, members of Co. D (Apple- knockers), 27th division, were resting securely. Their irca I ad been booby trapped and they felt sure nobody could disturb them by a surprise attack. But that night a small, hungry boy crawled through the booby trap area to an empty foxhole in the company circle. Through interpreters he told the men his parents had been killed in the fighting and that he hud no other relatives. The company christened him "Junior." "Junior" stood inspection with the men, wearing a Japanese sa- bre as a side-arm. Last December it became known that the company was to be inactivated. Lt. James Morris, one of the company officers, was determined that "Junior" was to t;o back to the States with him, and tried to smuggle him aboard ship in a barracks bag, but the deal was discovered. In the meantime, over $1,0'00 had been collected from men in the company for a fund to insure "Junior's" care and education in Riverdale Rustlers Meet At Beckers St. Joe: The Riverdale Rustlers 4-H club held a meeting Saturday afternoon, Feb. 2, at the home of Helen Becker with Betty Jane Bormann as assisting hostess.

She says it was awful. At times she would nearly strangle. She had stomach bloat, daily headaches and constant irregular bowel action. Today, this lady eats her meals and enjoys them. And she says the change is due to taking SYg-TONE. Her food agrees with her. No gas, bloat or spitting up after eating . She is also free of headaches now, and bowels are regular, thanks to this Remarkable New Compound. SYS-TONE contains 12 Great 'Herbs; they cleanse bowels, clear gas from stomach, act on eUtggish liver and kidneys. Miserable people soon feel different all over. So don't go on sufluring.
