The picnic was sponsored by the Legion Auxil- ! iary and the United Service Wo- I men. Following the picnic dinner a short program was given during dinner which both service men gave n home. short talk. Oncnina the program was community singing of America and Iowa.

Enockson has been sta- j tioned about 80 miles from London, being in the same camp all of the two years he served over- i seas. He is with the ground j crew of the air corps, and was j with tho 8th air force in Enp- j land. He said all of his work ! was administrative, and that the i other countries of Europe were i as foreign to him as they are to i people at home. i He said he had not seen robot ! bombs with the exception of one I on exhibit in London. Most of . the dama.se from robots was in southern England. The king and queen had visited his camp, but , he happened to be out on pass at that time. He told some English expressions, such as "goods wagon" for freight trains, and "torch" for flashlight. They, call lemonade and orangeade lemon and orange "squash." Thorson Also Talks. Herman Thorson entered service three years ago last January and has seen service on an LST in the south Pacific. After leaving San Francisco he saw action on Leyte and Saipan, and then landed on Okinawa May 2, and the little island of Ie on which the noted Ernie Pyle was killed. He told of one experience with a Jan suicide plane. He said thsy were just coming into a port and saw the plane circling overhead picking out its target. He said I ho began shooting at it, and just •os it started to dive,his. -gurvjainr med! Suicide Plane Misses. He started to clear his gun, and saw the Jap plane coming. He said his throat srot dry, and •everything wont through his mind—all he had done and all he hoped to do. Then he said he could see the plane was headed for a bigger communications ship, and all hands just stood and watched. It was a big relief when the plane missed and went into the sea. He said he had seen sever/ nl these suicide planes, but that was the closest he had come to one—which was close enough, he added. Back io the States. Then one day about a month /ago the commander called all hands in and told them he had bad news for them. They had heard a rumor they would be going home, but this caused all faces to drop, as it portended a little more action. Then the commander finally told them they were heading back for the states, They stayed at Saipan about a wek before coming back. The LST he is on is being repaired and overhauled or he might not have been able to come home at this time. He will report Aug. G, and Sgt. Enockson will go .back to duty Aug. 5. Both expect to ! go to the south Pacific. The program was closed with singing God Bless America, and the rest of the afternoon was spent visiting. turned in an old Ford truck.
