Mr. and Mrs. Browning, with their eldest daughter, who had been in California two years, were home for .some time. The Brownings formerly livud where Alfred Schadendorf now lives, near the Schmidts, and they were enjoying being back to see old neighbors. We were glad to see them and to find them looking well, riiey now live east of Forest City, where they bought a farm Recently when we called on Lawrence Newbrough, southwest of Lone Rock, on the Willis Cotton fnrm, we found a busy place. Willium Vogt-I, Burt, who does butchering, hud just finished doing some of his handiwork. Then, at the north side of the yard, Willis Cotton and six German prisoners from Algona were cutting wood. Willis was bossing the job, and the Germans seemed to be interested, though they said they had never cut wood in the old country, having always work- eel in factories. One of the them remarked that the wood-cutting was certainly healthy work. The German also remarked that this is a very big country, with such | big farms. At the house Mrs. j Newbrough said the Germans i kept up conversation all of the j time at meals. Two of them talk English. She said she had had iru.ny requests to sing since we wrote a story about her singing when we called there some time ago. Looking Forward In 1945 ^|/V-WWMW«~W|/W*~WMW^ visit.
