The body of William Wicse, 62 was taken from the Lindamaii funeral home to Seaman where services and burial took place Saturday. worked with little interuplion during those 33 years, he found that the let down was getting on his nerves. Like the proverbial mailman on a vacation, he took to long walks, but this failed to satisfy him. Unaccustomed to loafing, he found that after more than three decades of activity he couldn't begin to loaf at that stage of his life During one of his walks he visited the campus of Luther college. He was invited to spend some time m the classrooms, simply as an "auditor," as another way of passing time, perhaps more enjoyably*and profitably. The idea had a certain appeal to Mr. Roberg and instead of visiting classes, he registered as a special student in the fall of 1934. At the end of the last semester he had earned credit in 47 semester hours, chiefly in the fields of economics and history. He has, however, varied his program to include study in Norse, American literature, sociology and political science. During the current semester, he is registered lor a load of 14 semester hours. Thus today, Dick Roberg treks to the campus of Luther college, not with a mail bag hung over his shoulder, but with a stack of books under his arm, except that he invariably rides to classes, apparently having broken his life's habit of walking. That, no doubt, for good reasons, since his 14 miles a day deducting liberally for holidays, vacations and illness and Sundays, would give him at least an approximate total of 100,000 miles in his 33 years as a city carrier.

Two Decorah Aut Damaged When Hit by Ice From Roof DECORAH--Melting snow and ice, sliding from the roof of the mam building on the Luther college campus was responsible for serious damage to two automobiles. A 70 foot drop of an immense cake of ice almost deroofed a late model auto belonging to Dr Ting- lum of the Luther college faculty All braces and frame work in the top structure of the auto were either badly bent or broken. However the structure held sufficiently well to keep the ice from entering the interior of the auto itself to any great extent. The windows of the auto were all intact. Earlier in the week a similar accident occurred to the car of a student. However, as the falling piece of ice was smaller, the damage was not so much. Both of the autos were parked back of the main building, within a few feet of its wall when the accident happened. It was not learned whether each of them was covered with insurance for this type of damage.
