NEW YORK CITY — A couple of country boys reached New York in time for Easter, after a journey from Florida that began to seem a long, long way. ,' .From Charleston, S. C. to Norfolk our highway .passed through inlets, over rivers, in and out of pine timber, and some tobacco land after getting into Virginia . . . dn fact the day before we reached New York we passed through four states and into a fifth — So. Garo- lina, Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and onto the New Jersey Turnpike ... on the Turnpike nightfall caught us about 50 miles out of New York so we took No. 8 exit and found a motel, to arise anew the next day and tackle the problem of going through Manhattan to Long Island finding Font Tatteni military post. .*,*..*.-'-Studying maps can be a hobby and an interesting pastime — but here at is something of a necessity ... we figured that by exiling from the Turnpike at No. 16 we would reach the Lincoln Tunnel, and we did without any (trouble. This 50,cent toll ride took us under the Hudson river and when you come out you are reailly in New York, right in midtown. Perhaps it was our Iowa license bu ?u a "y, rate we traversed 34th street easily across Manhattan to the Midtown Queens tunnel, a 25 cent toll, and emerged on the other side on the Long Island Expressway. '•'.-.''•' '•'•*•• .* * . All this transpired without undue incident, but getting off the Expressway and; to Fort Totteh was something else. We found that .the cross-connecting street on our map was not indicated on any Expressway turnoffs, and first thjng we knew we had left New York City s limits and-entered Nassau County on Long Island. This caled for a turnaround, and believe me you don'it make any "U" turns on the street corners here, but we managed, and after several more false. tuTns..anid with the help of a bus driver, finally found the Fort Tqbten post. Incidentally, this is a military post that was constructed under, Robert E. Lee while We was with the Federal forces. It com-' mands — or did — the entrance to the East River from Long Island Sound, and is beautifully situated. .. - ' ***••' John Kain and I were pretty glad Jo get he|e, ahd for the first time m two years I saw my brother'and his wife. We were assigned to a bachelor officers quarters only a short distance from the apart- mentpf my brother on the base . . . after more than .two weeks of traveling over 3,400 miles John and I are not quite ais well equipped With fresh, clean clothes as we were at the start, but we managed to; find clean shirts 'and pressed pants for the occasion . . . in fact John did a little.replenishing at'the post PX . . . unfortunately a light drizzle is falling as this is written, but we still expect to do a little sightseeing today and tomorrow before starting for Iowa. ',''.'' ':..'••* * ,v John hasn't said w.'buj I rather think it would be hard to,sell him any New .Yjprfc real estate, .;foj- ai permanent residence, but it's a raighty interesting spot to see , . .-and there is a real market here for what Iowa does best — raising meat ... a good steak, they tell us, in a reasonably—priced restaurant, costs about $6 ... but we ate last evening'oh the base at the dining room and had lobster tail and clam chowder and a wonderful meal . . . the writer's brother has an outstanding collection of items, many antiques, picked up from aJLover the world during 21 years of army life, including coins, figurines, armor, pistols and historic and genuine letters from people of bygone history, both here and abroad . . . one in fact was wri'bten by General George Washington discharging a soldier from ithe Continental Army ... so off to International Airport at Idlewild, where this portion will probably be mailed '. . . John wonders how the flights are running to Copenhagen and Timbuctoo, but I'll do my pest to keep him hornet NOTES OP SERVICE MEN FORT BENJAMIN HARRISON, IND. — Army Pvt.
