PAGE TWENTY ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH MONDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1958 CAPT. FRED W. ARMSTRONG, formerly of Alton, receives a large piece of fresh chocolate cake from Mrs. Armstrong, who was second prize winner in the U. S. Lady magazine essay contest "Why We Are Making a Career of the Service." She is the first Army wife to win a prize iai the new contest.—U. S. Army Photo. Wife of Former Altonian Winner In Army Contest Mrs. Fred Armstrong, winner in a new Army contest, has been a service wife since Capt. Armstrong was recalled to active duty in 1952, at Ft. Huachuca, Ariz., where he was based with an engineer aviation battalion. In 1953, Mrs. Armstrong joined her husband at Ft. Richardson, near Anchorage, Alaska. While in Alaska and vicinity they had some unusual experiences. They witnessed a fall of volcanic Hospital Motes ash from an eruption 90 miles away, which darkened the day hours; one Christmas the oil burner stove clogged, cutting off heat and filling the house with smoke, with temperatures 40 degrees be> low zero. In contrast, Mrs. Armstrong relates in her article the scenic beauty, seeing wildlife o many kinds, eating moose, caribou and bear meat, as well as spruce hen, near the Alaskan base. They once lived at Wildwood Station, on Kenai Peninsula, a small fishing village, occupied at the time by the Russians. There were only three permanent buildings on the island, including a Russian Orthodox Church and wooden slab barracks. Here, too, they experienced a "frightening" earthquake. The captain and his wife now are stationed at Camp Wolters, near Mineral Wells, Tex. Medora MEDORA — Mr. and Mrs. George Barnes spent Sunday in Springfield at the home of Mrs. L. C. Haynes.
