Blumberg, who has come with us to take over our tailoring department, is pretty well settled here at Elk Cleaners now, and we have been getting acquainted with him, and he with us. * * * There are so many things of interest about Willi Blumberg, that we decided to write up this little article about him. He has had a very unusual career, both as to hTs "private" life, and as to his work in the tailoring profession, which alone covers twenty- five years. * * * Willi, who is now 42, is an accomplished tailor. He can put new cuffs on a pair of pants, and he can just as expertly restyle a fur coat into a smart cape or stole. He can make general repairs on any kind of garment, or he can convert a double-breasted man's suit into a new two-button single breasted, and make it so it fits perfectly. * * *~ Mr Blumberg, who was born in Pomer- ania, Germany, turned to tailoring early in life. Most of this work he did in Berlin, working in all phases of tailoring there as known before the war. He was called into service in the German army, and served eight years in all, the latter six of which he served in action on the Russian front. He rose to master sergeant in the German army. * * * He was lucky at War's end in being captured by an English outfit, and was released in due time. However, his family was ' by then scattered, and it was a year and a half before he found his son, who is now 19, and serving in the U. S. Air Force. Mrs Blumberg and a four year old daughter are here ,in «Algona with Mr Blumberg. * * * Willi followed his chosen profession, tailoring, in Germany for a while after the \var, but things were not the same, most of t the old tailoring establishments either bomb- .ed out completely or scattered to the winds. He later applied for admission to the United States, and has now come with us at Elk Cleaners. * * * Come in and visit with Willi Blumberg. He has an interesting personality and when it comes to tailoring or sewing, he can talk stitches and swatches 'til the cows come home. His real talent is in his ability. He's here to do all-'round tailoring — everything from putting new pockets in a pair of pants to relining a ladies coat. But he can also make suits to measure, can remodel and re- Style both men's and ladies garments, and as we said, can restyle furs with the best of them. * * * We are very gratified at Elk Cleaners to have an accomplished tailor with us, and we'd appreciate it if you would test Willi Blumberg's abilities. He's here and ready for any job that comes his way. "h I fl Elk Cleanersi Opposite Ppst Office Algona,
