Earl Grabau, Mrs. Delia Smith and Mra. L E. Wortman drove to Swea Ctiy recently to meet with members from the other clubs to formulate plans for the meeting. Mother Very 111 Lakota: Mrs. Harry Musaman took her mother, Mrs. F. C. Kiester to her home In Elmore last week Tuesday. Mra. Kiester has been quite sick while here and does nut improve aa she wax expected to, BO went up to see her physician. Mrs. Mussman came home the following day. Stores Open Wednesday | Lakota: The stores in Lakota are now open Wednesday evenings beginning last week Wednesday. This is for the convenience of thoae who are too busy to do their trading in the daytime. When L. C. Heifner, R. F. D. carrier at fitonka, received a letter from his son, Ray, a sailor with the Pacific fleet, from Hawaii, via Clip per airmail, he passed it on to us, and we reprint it almost in full as genuinely worthy of Kossuth county interest. The letter follows: Dead Dad: At last we are at the Islands. We saw our first island of the group, Wednesday, Lanai, Jand- ed at Lahaina that morning, provisioned ship that afternoon and evening, and shoved off for Hilo about 10 o'clock that night. We arrived In Hilo yesterday morning (March 31) and liberty started at 11 o'clock. The grass Is very pretty and green and the island is literally covered with it. It really sounds funny how land produced as the Islands were supposed to be produced, could be so fertile. Just aft of the city are the cane fields. They extend up on the foothills and Mauna Loa is in the background. That's another odd thing. The peak of the mountain Is snowcapped • and just to the right of the peak you see steam and vapor rising from the crater. In the first place it's kind of hard to imagine tmow anywhere out here as warm as It is, and the second to see such terrific heat one place and snow practically right alongside of It. Before we leave we are supposed to see the active crater, several extinct craters and a moving picture description of volcanos, eruptions and what not. Really had quite a trip over here. Didn't ace anything of land, but plenty of sea, from March 14th until March 30th. Guess that's one of the longest spells at sea the navy has experienced for quite some time. The first three or four days I guess were were only about 200 milei out, cruising up and down parallel to the coastline. After that we headed Lakota Home, Farm Improvements Are Now Being Made Lakota: The A. C. Schisscl residence Is undergoing remodeling. A large sun porch is being built on the south and the north porch Is being removed and the roof o the house reshingled. The house on the farm just north of town which was purchased by modern HoiheV Mr. and ^Mrs Schwartz and son moved to th farm March 1st. Three daughter and one son of Mr. and Mrs Schwartz were married during the past six months. straight west and held that cours for several days, after which w headed south. We finally ended u from that about 600 miles south o the Islands. Weather Plenty Hot May be you think it wasn't ho when we were there. At that tlm we had already shifted to whites but when we got down that far' w took off our jumpers. That was th uniform of the day until we got t Hilo. Then we had to put on jump ers again and we can be seen n place on the topside without them I imagine as soon as we start th next phase, next Monday, we'l change back to undershirts again till we reach Pearl Harbor, the 8th I tried to find a souvenir to sen you yesterday, but couldn't find any thing I considered appropriate About all they have Is grass skirt and Hula dolls. The Hula dol wouldn't do you any good, and don't think you'd be interested in grass skirts. I did think, that being aa you are Interested in the mail service, you might like a letter by clipper ship air mail. Except for airmail and of course, parcel post, the postage rates are the same. Admiral's Signature Another very interesting thing came up not so very long ago aboard the Louisville that migh interest you. It seems that when the Louisville took off for Australia the mall clerk neglected to take enough stamps on board for the crew's needs. They hit port and had no stamps so they brought out their navy regulations and found an article which states that men in the service need no stamps for their letters. The catch to it was that the commanding officer had to put a notation on the corner where the stamp should have gone, reading "Sailor's Letter, C. O. D." and then sign it. Well, Dad. I guess I'd better be closing and getting to my work, i guess I'm going over this afternoon so will mail this from the Hilo postofflce. I hope this finds vou well, the weather settled, and in the midst of a wonderful Iowa spring Signed, Ray. nnd has done very efficient work Vinitor from California Mrs. Addle L.
