CLOSED MARCH 8 OPEN MARCH 22 MATERIAL SHORTAGE B.B.DOBSON CANDIES 323 NO. FEDERAL VETERAN VISITS LAKE RELATIVES M. Sgt. Moral A. Byers Is Recovering Sight Clear Lake--M/Sgt. Noral Alexander Overs, a patient at the O'Reilly general hospital, Springfield, Mo,, returned there Monday a f t e r spending the weekend with his uncle and a u n t . Mr. and Mr B. F. Byers, 409 \V. Stale street, and cousin, Mrs. Donald Carr, Mason City. Sergeant Byers, who is at the hospital lor treatment of his eyes injured in an explosion while he was in England, is recovering nicely after undergoing 2 operations since Jan. 1. Sergeant Byers. whose home is at Velva, N. Dak., had been England with the 8th army force as foreman of the base accessory shop since Aug. 1, 1942 and was with the RAF 5 months before that. His eyes were injured in an explosion several months ago while he was on duty. He had been gradually losing his sight tiil he *as obliged to return to this country for treatment, to which his eyes are responding wonderfully and it is hoped he will eventually entirely recover. He lias the utmost respect for the English people and their fortitude since knowing what they have had to go through. The food is much better now, he says, since many of the large estates have been put into crops. Yet he was surprised, upon arriving in New York, to learn that practically anything one wished to order could be obtained in a restaurant here, since they had ben told in England that the United States was under rationing. Col. Delmer E. Wilson, commanding officer of the air corps squadron to which Sgt. Byers was attached, writes ''The accessory department has been one of the most progressive principally because of the skill and initiative of Sgt. Byers who continuously experimented, improved and constructed, in addition to carrying on the normal work of the department. "Testing equipment is scarce and it is up to each unit to provide its own. W i t h few plans and little advice from superiors Sgt. Byers developed and constructed a supercharger regulator test stand for A-7, A-ll and A-13 regulators; u power reamer for outer wing panel and stabilizer replacement; a pony brake for measuring clutch settings on landing gear retracting units, bombay retracting units and flap motors; a glycol pump test stand and complete overhaul procedure for, pumps, and eciuipment for flushing supercharger regulators w i t h o u t removal from the aircraft, All have been in operation 3 months or more and have proved successful." Another letter by Major lialc D. Ritchie, group engineering officer in the air corps, testified to the great service done by Sgt. Byers and of the loss his depart- ture was to the force. The first 10 planes to leave Engliand to bomb Germany were from Sgt. Byers' squadron. He says. "1 saw- the first U. S. planes on their first t r i p and that is something." Sgt. Byers landed in Liverpool during a bombing raid by the Germans, so learned early what bombings are like. He visited Oxford. Coventry and London. He has the highest regard for the Red Cross, which, he says, "gets a n y t h i n g for the service men that they want." Sgt. Byers was advanced from WOUNDED AT FRONT -- Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Awe, It. F. D. No. 2, Clear Lake, have received word that Ihcjr son. Vfc. M c 1 v i n Awe. was slightly wounded Feb. 3 somewhere in Italy.
