Panelli in writing to his mother, Mrs. Stella Panelli, says, "I have enclosed a ballot of the election of Hitler in 1938, and it seems that almost all of the people voted for him. We found over a thousand of them and only about three of them voted No, and I guess they are dead now. f "I also have enclosed an insignia of the German signal corps soldier that I got a few days ago. There was an article in the Stars and Stripes about our outfit so I guess that seme of the papers at home have said something about it by now. We can wear our divisional shoulder patches now so we should be able to tell a lot more about the outfit in a few days." Pfc. Panelli is the son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Panelli and a graduate of the Reno high school. He received his training in the infantry at Ft. Douglas, Utah, Camp Roberts, Calif., and Ft. Benning, Ga. He has been overseas for several months, stationed in France and Germany. RICK'S COFFEE TAVERN 1099 South Virginia Street Now under New Management and will be known as the .
