The young man is a son of Mr. and Mrs. H. N. Wilberg, Ring' sted, former farmers here. In boyhood he attended the Seneca consolidated school. The dispatch said: "Commendation for excellence in bombing during Ninth Air Force, pre-invasion attacks and subsequent operations in support of ground forces have been received by a medium bomber group of which First Lt. H. Norman Wilberg,'Ringsted, la., is a member. "A veteran of more than 50 combat , missions over Europe, Lieutenant Wilberg is pilot of B-26 "Siiat-Kat" in Col. Thomas B. Hall's target busting Marauder group which has distinguished itself with an outstanding bombing record. "Lieutenant Wilberg's unit has been officially. commended several times for pin-point precision bombing of every n..arshalling yards,' bridge, and £.un positions. It's pre-invasion attacks aided in paving the way for Allied landings on the continent, while current operations in support of ground, troops have paved an easier road for the Allies in France. "Before entering the service in March, 192, Lieutenant Wilberg was a precision tool-grinder for the Gemmill Co., Chicago, 111. He now wears the air medal with oak leaf clusters for meritorious achievement while participating in aerial flight in this European theater of .operations." er) has announced new postal egulations on mailing candy and oodstuffs to overseas personnel, nd Postmaster Sullivan here ays the same regulations are in ffect at all other postoffices, as First' class parcels containing an'dy or foodstuffs mailed at the irst class rate will not be accept- d, the postmaster said, since the umber of gift ioarcels with these ontents became so great as to nlace a severe strain on the fa- ilities available for their trans- nission overseas. Furthermore many of these packages were not packed secure- y and consequently did not carry veil in the mails. ' Foodstuffs and candy in ordinary parcels not exceeding five pounds in weight or 15 inches in ength or 36 inches in length and girth combined will continue to 36 accepted subject to the general requirement that a request hercfor from the addressee is presented at the time of mailing. All this means is that the rule requiring requests can't be got around any more by paying the 'irst class postage rale.
