Mother Finds Long Lost Son In AP Picture By Assetleted Press SEATTLE — "You can't, make up seven years in seven minutes", Roy Aitchison explained, and so today he is busy writing letters to his mother in Detroit. The 39-year-old resident of Lake Sammarrunish had a telephonic reunion with Mrs. Emily Aitchison Tuesday. The conversation covered a lot of things, he said, but it couldn't hope to fill in for all that elapsed tin .e. Aitchison lost track of his mother after the end of World War II. He returned from overseas duty with his Italian war bride and his mother moved to England. His letters to her were returned unopened, so he quit trying. It developed that Mrs. Aitchison had returned to the United States and, not knowing her son's 'iddress was unable to notify him she had returned. An Associated Press picture of Aitchison and his dog Curley, which survived a ride on the pontoon of Aitchison's plane, led to the mother learning her son was In Seattle. "We're going* lo exchange pictures and information now," he said, "and next summer maybe we can have a real reunion."
