PAGE TWO ELPS SERVE ARMY DRINKS TO SOLDIERS S>t. Benedict Boy is Busy Man at Front in, Italy. KOSSUTH COUNTY. ADVANCE, ALGONA, LIGHTNING HITS HIGH HOME, IS PHONE AND WALLPAPER Frank Erickson, a St. Benedict youth, is a member of a Fifth Army group in Italy which serves 20,000 drinks a cluy to soldiers, with nobody from the W. C. T. U. qr an anti-saloon league around to object, though even if there were they would approve, and Highly, for the drinks are plain AJvatiT—not a drop of booze in dight. Like threshers or other harvest (Jiangs, soldiers have to have drinks (water) often, and it takes s|o much water that the army has io assign groups to get the water, tree it of possible contamination, imd serve it at their own "bar." Ivherever that may be. Their ''saloon" has to be open 24 hours daily. They are always located near a spring or creek if they can find one, but presumably they soinetinus have to dispense hauled drinks. Water is Purified. When the group finds a supply, no matter whether muddy or contaminated, they draw up the water through a mobile chlorinator and sifter or filter into a canvas tank holding 3000 gallons. Then trucks take the water in 5- gullon cans to the fighting or other soldiers wherever they may be. The water also gets what the "water tenders" call "Ph" tests. Frank has written home that the boys don't know what that Al 7Tiay mean to a chemist, but they don't care as long as it makes the water safe for their "customers." Frank's sister Mrs. Perry Torine has a clipping from a Minnesota daily paper givin;/ the i'oix- £-.o:ng information anil namir.;, one of the water groups, including Frank. Mother, Sisters, Brothers. Frank has three other sisters: Mrs. John S'hay and Mrs. Ben Brink, Bancroft, and Mrs. Ray Olson, Mason City. Eugene and Fred Erickson, St. Benedict, also Floyd Erickson, Algona, are Frank's brothers, and Frank and Fred are twins. All are children i of the late Herman Erickson and i of his wife, Mrs. Carrie Erickson,: the latter now a patient and ser- ; iously sick at the Kossuth lio.s- ; pital. \ Frank's address, in case any of i his friends desire further in for-! rnation concerning his brand of: booxo, which is very scarce at i Jowa state liquor stores, is care' the New York postmaster and ! can be secured from members of i liis family.
