Etchings by Don Glasell at Library A man stood in the exhibit hal at the library while the etching! and lithographs by Don Glasel were being arranged. Stopping a the print of Prospect Hill he said "That's Sioux City to the life.' It is true that Mr. and Mrs. Don Glasell have been living in Siou City recently and before that in Dubuque though they are reall. Chicagoans. But they have beei interested in Iowa for some tim and naturally the exhibit contain impressions of Iowa subject mat ter. Small town and farm life an peal to the Glasells. This is especially evident in th paintings both In tempera and oil which will be hung for the Worn en's club meeting on Tuesda Feb. 22. The show at the library call attention again to the scene her at home and it is rather inleresl ing to note that from the readin trends in this community bein kept at the information desk tha people here like to read about ou own country and place. This art exhibit, however, car not be termed regional in any nai row or restricted sense. The artis have expressed a universal Qtialil in their work which will not a( peal to everyone because whi! the work is honest and sincere, ignores preltiness and even ignors beauty in the ordinary sense t the term. Decoration is secondary and in terest in people is tha primal consideration in the etchings. The library owns a small po folio of etchings which contain several examples of the work . Don Glasell. His work does spes quite directly to the Iowa aud ence though many of the pictun have been shown in Metropolitu galleries. 'ANKS FIRM EFORE ATTACKS Doughboys Stand Ground in Beachhead Battles On The Anzio Beachhead Front, eb. 17--(U.PJ--Hard-bitten Amerj- an doughboys, willing to stand icir ground and fight tanks wilh nachineguns, are helping to iwart Marshal Albert Kessel- ng's drive to push the allied eachhead force into the Tyrrhen- ,n sea. They're men like Pfc. Charles orteus and his machine gun crew, ·ho held their emplacement and mowed down the German in- aulry until their gun was knocked ut. Then they got another nun nd went back to the battle. Porteus hails from Brooklyn nd told me he worked night shift i a New York City bank before he war. He's working both day nd night shifts out here on the iring line, along with his crew: Pvts. Chester Smith, Thomaston, la., John Worley, Windsor, 111., nd Oscar Tinknam, Athens, Ohio. There's nothing unusual about hese boys. They're typical of the Beachhead heroes who are taking he shelling and shooting without etup and keeping the Germans rom pushing through to the sea. That's why I want to tell their lory. 'The jerries came at us with verything they had," Porteus aid. "We were firing at tanks vith our machine guns. "Their tanks towered above us ike skyscrapers that moved. "First the Germans were in ront of us, then alongside us and some of our machine gun nests vere gone. We stuck- there firing and mowing down their infantry "They were shooting our boys down, too." While he talked to me out of one corner of his mouth, Porteus was concentrating on the pack- ng of a new machine gun am ammunition on the backs of him self and his fellow machine gun nevs. " ' He explained: "Our gun was finally knocke out so we came back here to ge ·i new one." Turning to his crew "Come on fellows, let's get back in there and get wet all ove again." 'It's always wet and muddy 01 this beachhead," Porteus said The Camp Fire Girls organization was founded in 1912.

OSCO DRUG Friday, Feb. 18, 1944 f IASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE When the Germans came at us rom around the factory (Musso- ini's so-called model farm settle- nent which the Germans hold) ve had been up there several days ind we were still wot from the ains." As they pushed off Tinkham rcnurked: 'I think they're trylus to push. _.. into the sea but if they can't do belter thun they've done so far ve needn't \vorry." I thought of what the superior officers had told me--that this vas an all-out effort by the Germans, that their artillery barrage, was the toughest of the beachhead campaign and of those rol- ing waves of Mark IV and Tiger .anks I'd seen yesterday. "If they :an't do better," said this Ohio boy. The crew sloshed forward up a Irainage ditch bending under its Burdens. Already they were get- tiny wet again. Up ahead the enemy was sending over more waves of attacks. I could see them slop to set up their guns. Soon they were shooting again at the Germans. 1878 News Clipping Gives Kansan Idea for Selling War Bonds Topeka, Kans., (/P)--Pete Reilly, _ state employe, ran onto a clipping printed in an Abilene, Kans., newspaper in 1878 which gave him an idea for selling war bonds.
