Dear Sirs:— Some time has passed since I was home last, and a good deal more time since my last letter to you. We have covered a lot of the Pacific ocean off southern California In the past few weeks and perhaps some of our wanderings would be of interest to you. To start right is to start at the beginning so I shall endeavor to start there. Immediately following my return to the ship from my Christmas leave we were ordered to search for the lost PBY patrol plane in which five men lost their lives. It seems disheartening to say that with nearly 100 planes In the search from this ship as well as the combined efforts of destroyers, cruisers and battleships, that we were unable to locate anything but a parachute and scraps of the wreckage. After our intense search for this plane had ended, the ship had a few days at port In which the men once more established their relation on shore and when finally came the word "to sea", all were ready. We have spent the ensuing time in a dud war with the entire battle and air force taking active participation. For myself, I have been a "her-| Iowa mil" as I have stayed aboard ship' NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RE- February 24, 1938. The city council met in regular session at the city hal). The members present were: Hawcott, Harris, Overmyer, White, Huenhold. Absent: Kohlhaas. The minutes of the last meetinp were read and approved. H. A. Van Alstyne was appointed to position of day marshal. The following resolution was passed: RESOLUTION WHEREAS, the hand of death hae removed from among us Frank W. Green, the Chief of Police of the City of Algona, Iowa, and, WHEREAS, Mr. Green was for eleven years an able, efficient, and painstaking employe of said city, and WHEREAS, his services were of treat value to the City of Algona, the entire period, except for one visit ashore to see friends in the San Diego Naval hospital, therefore can't comment on conditions In California except for hearsay. Long Beach has seen the rising of at least a dozen new oil wells springing up in residential as well as business districts. Old Mexico is once more at its glory with the new winter opening of the famous resort and racing track at the Rosarita Beach. Tia Juana has been more or less busy with the ever- present flow of tourists and sailors looking for a good time. I have finished my qualifications for the pharmacy course and now I have entered into the dental side of 1L Perhaps I should finish this letter, however In a later letter I shall endeavor to describe to you the modes of living in far-off Hawaii, as this ship la to cruise to Honolulu on the fleet's spring cruise. So until such a time as I can accomplish this I shall bring this one to a close. Yours sincerely, ORVAL HAINES, U. S. S. Lexington.

AN OLD FRIEND YOU CAN Trust ! I'hilco, I'uliu Beach, Kuppenheinier, Buick, .Maurice L. Rothschild, Heinz, Hoover, G. E., how niaiiy American* don't know what at least nine of these ten fuinou* name* »taml for? You'd have a hard time fiiulnig; even one! For NATIONAL AUVKKTISINCi ha* made these brand names and hundreds like them almost as familiar us the clays of tin- week. We play guessing games with their advertising solgans. We recognize their trademarks everywhere. In a "hull market" we usually rush to buy their stocks first on the exchange. To millions, each of these nationally advertised brands is "An Old Friend You C'an Trust" Why IK thin so? What given these hundred* of brands that mysterious, marvelous thing called "acceptance"? Just the bare fact fiiat you see them advertised? Or some deeper, more important reason? Almost any housewife knows the answer! Dependability! Nationally advertised brands are bought everywhere and used everywhere. Eiu'/i article that you see advertised from eoast to coast is coiiiuetlng for favor with dozens of similar articles in millions of households from New England to the Pacific Ocean. Such "nut ioiiul acceptance"—the favor of millions upon millions of buying Ami-rii-uni,—is nothing to triflle with. Nationally advertised merelmiiclls.' has got to be good—OK KLSK! Again—the national advertiser has at hi-, disposal the greatest "proving ground" in the world! He plans, prepares, perfects AND I.M- I'KOVKS his merchandise urrordini; to Mie. wants oiul preferanees of millions of Americans —the "elioosiest" market on earth! Hence, nationally advertised American merchandise is better, safer merchandise, a better value and without peer anywhere. It finds ready buyers in every land and clime. Finally—you'll find that nationally advertised brands have "acceptance" in Kossuth County because almost EVERY really important national advertiser advertises at some time in this NEWSPAPER! Why? Because the, newspaper is the ONLY "advertising medium" that tells not only what to buy, but where to buy it, thus giving the manufacturer quicker, less costly distribution. Because this newspaper has already built up a goodwill and an "acceptance" for the retail merchant—himself an advertiser —who must finally sell the national advertiser's goods. AND LAST BIT NOT LKASST, because this ueuspapcr itself is "An Old Friend You Can Trust", r.irniiiK and roiiuiuuiding euiUideuc.* that both the manufacturer and hl< dealer mu»t thi-niM Ivt» have if they are to sell you ;v dollar's worth of their merchandise.
