KOSSUTH BOYS IN A FAMOUS FIGHTER UN IT With the Fifth Army, Italy (Undated)—At least six Kossuth! boys have been fighting nlong i the Arno River in Italy with the' 133rd infantry regiment whichi has been a nightmare to 'battered Gorman troops throughout the fifth army's Italian campaign. The boys are Pfc. Joe O. Elkins, driver, Sgt. Lloyd T. Green, squad leader, Sgt. Robert L. Sigs- bec, assistant squad leader, and Pfc. Wm. A. Bestenlehncr, all of Algona; Pfc. Martin F. Voight, Burt, an ammunition carrier; Pfc. Edwin E. Schumacher, Whit- tempre; and S-Sgt. Bernard O. Pctlit, Lone Rock, squad leader. Keith P. Cottington, Bode, la., platoon sergeant, and five Buffalo Center boys, including Sgt. Leonard J. Kuchcnreuthcr, squad leader, are also members of the regiment. Overseas nearly three years, the regimant, which is in the 34th or "Red Bull" division, has piled up more hours in actual combat than many American divisions have time overseas. The veteran regiment first blazed its guns at a cocky enemy in the bony mountain 'ranges of Tunisia and defeated the Krauts in the famous battle for Hill 609. Backed from Tunisia to the Arno, the defeat-written faces of retreating German troops are still haunted by the Red Bulls who gored the enemy at Cassino, Anzio, and in crushing drives above Rome. With a record of having' taken every objective assigned to it, the 133rd has become one of the most decorated units in the Mediterranean theater. Scattered among the fighting infantrymen of the unit are two congressional medals of honor, 19 distinguished service crosses, 117 silver stars for gallantry in action, and more than 1500 purple heart awards. First elements of the 133rd sailed for Ireland in January, 1942, one of the first infantry units to go overseas in this war. * J. P. STOW IS DEAD. Burt, Sept. 14—James P.
