Fuerstenau, de- i ceased, and the present Mrs. j Theresa Mueller, will be able to tell a lot of real stories about bombing flights over the Germans when he gets back from the European war. Young Fuerstenau, who is an Algona nigh school graduate and was attending Cornell college when he was called to the service, has an air medal which was awarded to him for exceptionally meritorious achievement in combat on bombing missions.

The Avenger was put into service last January, and has had a remarkable history since then. It has traveled some 116,000 miles from its base in England on 8th Air Force objectives and has dropped some 340,000 pounds of! bombs on German industries and' industrial installations. Busy on Invasion. Once when the Avenger got home the plane was like a sit--'e from nose to tail with some 400 or 500 holes from flak. Nevertheless the plane has been remarkably free from injury. On its first 71 flights, no one in the crew was hurt, but in the 72nd flight a waist gunner was killed. The dispatch from England says that when the Allies landed in Normandy the Ayenger for a month was out practically all the time. "She nearly flew herself into a state of exhaustion," said the dispatch. "Twenty times the old girl went up, 17 times to bomb the Jerries in France, twice to Hamburg, and once to Bremen."
