Tearing up the runway would cost a lot of money and interrupt vital military traffic; Fred had to find a better way of getting that cable laid. •«•* A half-mile-long drainage conduit buried six feet under the runway offered some possibilities. The conduit was located in an ideal spot, but getting the cable through it looked like an impossible job. *M^ Then Fred remembered a trick he had used as a boy. He obtained a weasel and fashioned a simple harness for him. Placed in the conduit, the weasel scampered through to the other end, pulling a light string behind him. The crew used the string to pull through a thin wire. The thin wire brought a heavier wire, and tlu's quickly snaked the heavy cable through. ^ We think this true story illustrates the resourcefulness of telephone people everywhere. You can depend on the telephone—and telephone people—to get your message through quickly and efficiently. er ier, ents, rs H. E.

Fischer wrote that "there were so many things, I'd like to know the answers to, I don't know where to begin." He says he would like to continue his education, after his release, and commute by plane from Iowa State College to his home near here, so he could assist his father on the farm and still get his degree. Thinks of Farm "It must be wonderful at this time of the year on the farm," his letter continued. "I wish I were there to enjoy it." He said he was in good health.' Negotiations for the release of Capt. Fischer, now 28 years of age, are still in progress at Geneva, Switzerland. A proposal has been ma'de for the exchange of the Americans for Chinese students being held in the United States. It was only the third letter the Fischers had received from him since he was captured. Mrs Fischer said they still do not know where he is being held.

Cody, 90, resident of Palo Alto county for the past 61 years, were held at 2 o'clock Friday afternoon, July 2 in St. John's Lutheran church at Depew. Burial was in the south St. John's cemetery near Cylinder. Rev. Nordheim, pastor of the it. John's church conducted the ites. Five nephews and one ;reat nephew served as pallbearers. Mr Cody, a retired farmer, died at the home of a son, Amer, with whom he made his home 1 Vz miles northwest of Fenton June 28. Surviving in addition to his son, Amer, are a son, Theodore of San Pedro, Calif.; two daughters, Mrs Hannah Ryan of Des Moines, and Mrs Minnie Me Leskey of Los Angeles, Calif., one brother, Ed Cody of Rockwell; and sister, Mrs Mallen Bjalland of Norway. Mrs Cody died in 1912. Also surviving are eight grandchildren and four great grandchildren. Mr Cody was born in Norway but came to this country in 1884, settling first in Illinois before coming to Iowa. He was well known in the county as an industrious farmer and a good neighbor, retiring from active work when advancing age made it necessary. Many friends attended the last rites.
