Dear Mr. and Mrs. Odey Cherland: Heartfelt thanks for your lovely letter that we received a long time ago. You have certainly waited to hear from us. We would like to send some -pictures of us, but it is so hard to get films. We have enclosed a picture of .our children and you will later receive one of the whole family. But now we wish the most heartfelt thanks to you and your friends in the Idle Hour club for your withstanding LuVerne Methodist SUPPER THURSDAY, DEC. 5 Menu Roast Young Turkey Dressing Gravy Mashed Potatoes Buttered Peas Cabbage Slaw Vegetable-Relish Plate Rolls .

It is joy and excitement when American packages are opened. We have now received six packages, frdflrt the Idle Hour club and three from other persons in Iowa. Most of it fits fairly:good and that which didn't fit my wife altered. She is very handy and good at sewing, I will now tell a little about ourselves. We are both from poor parents and had to get out on our own at 15 years of age, empty handed. We had the working spirit, ambition and determination to make headway in the world, but it is not so good to make headway in Norway. We both work very hard and have to at all time, because we 'haven't money to pay for hired help. We no\y farm a place of 80 to 90 acres and have some machinery and equipment. We have two horses, five cows' and some sheep, but we can get more when the soil gets built up better. It' is in poor fertility. We'moved to this place last April. We have had five terrible years in Norway or rather in the wojdd. But, we must now hope that God's goodness will guide and rule so there won't be another war. That is the worst calamity that can come over us and our children. Let us hope the big powers now have reached some peace agreement. So to you and your friends in the Idle Hour- i club a heartfelt. greeting from all of us. With greetings, GUNNER, N. ANDERSON.

Meanwhile, Richie has promised his girl friend Louise Bates, played by Beverly Ditsworth, that he will take her to a dance and he can't get a a car or the money to rent one, so he makes a deal with George Adler, Henry's nephew, to borrow Henry's car.
