BIGHT HUENHOLD AT BIG CAMP IN CALIFORNIA Well Known Algon- ian Put in Platoon of Buglers. By H. F. Huenhold. Camp Roberts, Calif., May 3— I send greetings from, the nation's largest army replacement training center. This camp is only 18 months old, but has blossomed into a reality like dandelions on a sunny May day in Iowa. The huge camp is located half way between San Francisco and 9n°nnn ngeles> and U "graduates" 20,900 selectees from basic training every 13 weeks. I understand that at present there are 40,000 soldiers, officers, and per- In I \ ne L sJt , ationed here ' but that bO to 80 thousand will be here by Xclll, All of the soldiers here live in barracks, two-story structures housing 60 men each, 30 on the first floor, 30 on the second I am grateful that I was shipped to a camp with barracks instead of to one of the so-called "tent cities like those in the South. Twenty-five From Kossuth. At least 25 Kossuth men came out on the same troop train with me. After the first few days here we were split up and assigned to companies according to classification as well as so-called aptitude tests. Only two days after I arrived I was transferred to an all-bugle platoon. All of the boys are musicians in some form or another, but I can't see where I rate in a bugle school AH these years I have tonted a clarinet in the Algona Municipal band, ^and haven't touched a valve instrument or bugle since I i was.a youngster in the grades I Most of the other men from Kossuth have been assigned to regular infantry or artillery units Most of them will get the full 13 weeks' training, but the boys who get specialized training will have only part of this training period. The Chow is Fine. The so-called "chow" in our mess halls has been good. Being in California, we get plenty of citrus fruits. There is no reason m the world why any soldier here should crab about food I think the saying that the American soldier is best clothed and led of any in the world is true. It does seem that all of the trainees have wonderful appetites. _ When we get into the mess nail, it becomes a regular madhouse. I find it necessary to watch that some fellow soldier in a hurry doesn't stick my hand -with a fork thinking it is another •piece of meat! I am rapidly adjusting myself •to army routine, and I hope that as the'weeks go by and the going g , et ;L ^ugher, I shall have the •stuff it takes to make a first-class soldier. Stroll With Algonian. It might be interesting to know that I haven't lost all of my contacts among the hometown boys. I have "Steve" Merch- land the Sliver Grey cafe manager s step-son, with me in camp and his address is Co. 9 87th Inf. T. B., while mine is Co. D. 85th so we are fairly close neighbors. T Th 1 ? being Sunday "Steve" and I strolled all about the camp to see what this huge government project had to offer. Having had plenty of drill practice and marching, we seemed to be pretty well conditioned for a long stroll. ° All of the fellows in my platoon are fine boys. A good majority pf them are even college graduates and come from fine families throughout the crontry "Buddy" Knows Ex-Algonian.' «,i«L,5 iave a . linot ype operator sleeping next to me, and he was employed by the St. Paul Pio«H?i«» w ii he daily paper that Kuss Waller was on before n? 1 ^ 0 ^ 180 -™- This boy tells me that his sister is a sororitv sister of Priscilla Southgale who was graduated with me from the Algona high school in 1923 You 9 6 .fnn -, n yo ^ get even a s far as AOUU miles from home, there is always somebody who knows somebody you knew — a sman world, after all.

The township chairman asked national headquarters to -permit the later roll 'call, and permission was granted, with the result that almost everyone in the township contributed. : Besides the $84 in the roll call, workers sold lunches at Steven? weekly sales, and now there is more than $300 in the township's Red Cross fund. Sewing and knitting are on the program for Hebron women in further Red Cross activity. Mull, Inn M'-~"- S5"f!" t '"{f *'- •» *HdSe, „. 1008 fcrryyiJurln Co,, mdae. 4^ Duncan Idled. Af/g.
