PAGE FOUR KOflStmi COUNTY AnVANCIS, ALOOMMQWA. LIBRARY COLUMN Owing to the war, newspapers, like other industrial enterprises, hare to operate under handicaps. Paper, particularly, is rapidly growing scarce and high-priced. Tor this and other reasons some Advance features, including the library column, have had to be omitted during the last few weeks. This has been due to action br the publishers, and no •column editor has had anything to do with it. If the opportunity arises, some or all of the features will be revived. MISSION TO NORTH. Three years spent in the "North" by Mrs. Harriman were j HVniy''GrandgenertrSexton, 'and evidently brimming over with Mrs Dean christensen, 'Webster MRS; SGHILTZ, OF BANCROFT, DIES SUDDENLY Bancrdft, Mar. 11—Mrs. Peter J. Schiltz, 52, died suddenly at her homb last week Wednesday night at 11 o'clock. Mr. arid Mrs. Schiltz had attended evening lenten- devotions at St. John's church, and Mrs. Schiltz \^as feeling well, but it was known that she had heart trouble. " Funeral services were held Monday morning at 10 o'clock at St. John's Catholic church, the Rev. J. H. Schultes, pastor, reading the requiem mass. Mrs. Schiltz was survived by her husband, two daughters, Mrs. 1RV1NGTON COUPLE HAS LOST BOTH TWINS, A BOY AND GIRL experience, for not only did she fulfill diplomatic duties as United States minister to Norway, but-with indefatigable energy and determination she also set about learning to know the people and their way of life. She was charmed with both. In easy flowing style and rich, at times poetic, diction Mrs. Harriman presents scenes and incidents peaceful and charming in the years before the Nazi invasion, then strained and harried during and after the fateful April 9, till she is again in the harbor of New York, where "the skyscrapers that had been invented and built in my own lifetime, never looked so welcoming and wonderful as on the 28th of August, 1940." "In Scandinavia," writes Mrs. Harriman, "I discovered ever fresh concepts of democracy, as if those children of the Vikings had remembered much that Americans of the frontier have, to their loss, forgotten." Mrs. Harriman is elaborate in description of scenery and people. "The cool magnificence of i the Norwegian scenery has for j centuries fed the imagination of : a people living close to the! earth—heroes and goddesses on i skates, or skiis, or plunging into : the summer seas—that is how the Norwegians seem. I used to look, and look again, for it was like some fantasy of a Greek temple frieze coming to life." The author njver fails to notice beauty around her. Even in the Lofotin Islands, ordinarily cosidered bleak, sh.> finds beauty while she visits a fleet of 4000 City, also two sons, Reynold in the navy and overseas, and Richard, in the army in Alaska. She left five sisters and seven brothers. The sons could not be here for the funeral. Mr. and Mrs. Schiltz had lived on a farm a half mile west of Bancroft 30 years. Edw. Hatten lo Army— The L. C.

Mrs. Nellie G. Bowyer, 1008 No. Gardner St., Hollywood, Calif., has forwarded the following clipping from the Los Angeles Times: "Robert S.
