Rites Set for Nashua Marine Pfc. Harold Chamney Lost Life on IwoJima Nashua—Committal services will be held at the Oak Hill cemetery at Nashua Thursday for the remains of Pfc. Harold Chamney whose body arrived from overseas. T1 ^n .yFW ar >d American Legion will be in charge with the Rev. C. E. Wolsted, pastor of the First Congregational church, officiating. Born March 21, 1925, at Estevan, Sask., Canada, he was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Chamney. He came with his parents to Nashua at the age of 5. He was graduated from the Nashua high school with the class of 1943. After graduation he was employed by the Waterloo Concrete company. On March 26, 1943 ,he joined the marines, and left for his basic training at San Diego, Cal. In July, 1944, he left for the Hawaiian Islands. On Jan. 22, 1945, he shipped out .with the 5th Engineers for Saipan in the Marianas, and went on to the difficult task of capturing Iwo Jima. He was killed on March 15 in the battle in the northern pocket of the island known as "Death Valley." He is survived by his parents, one brother Donald, all of Nashua. PILES MISERABLE SAYS A WOMAN Mother of four, she lives on a southern Iowa farm, and life was just miserable due to piles. Had •o much house and farm work, and •was just worn out from pain and suffering- of piles. But now she writes, "I cannot praise SEL-O- PON too much for the good it did in getting rid of my trouble!" There are lots of ladies with families, housework and other chores, yet just miserable with piles. They'd be glad to find out about SEL-O-PON, hailed by thousands over 30 years. SEL-O-PON is a pure vegetable product that you simply swallow — no mess or grease to soil anything — and attacks piles where they start—internally. There's no need to suffer too much or spend too much. Try SEL-O-PON, it's-, guaranteed, and you'll agree with this lady, "I feel sure that they'll Ret as much good from SEL-O-PON as I did." OSCO DRUG CO. Rites Thursday for Charles City Woman Charles City—Funeral services will be held at 9:30 a. m. Thursday at the Immaculate Conception Catholic church, for Mrs. William Warrington, 59, of 904 Ninth avenue, who died late Monday night at the Cedar Valley hospital where she had been a patient for 4 weeks.

"Mickey" MacDonald spent a 72-hour leave in Mason City through Tuesday with his wife and parents, Mr. and Mrs, J. H. MacDonald, 903 N. Federal. An army air force flyer, he has completed 150 missions on the Berlin airlift since October and when he departed from Mason City expected to join his group for another 45 days on the lift. 160 Mile Trip His lift flight is from the Vosburg air base, where he is stationed, to Berlin, an hour's trip over the 160 mile distance. The C-54 Skymaster he pilots hauls ident of Charles City for some 36 I coal, mined in the Ruhr, to Ber- years and was a member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic church, the Rosary Society and the Sacred Heart guild. The former Anna Harvey, she was born July 9, 1839, at Dyersville. She is survived by her husband, 2 daughters, Mrs. Chauncey Kay, 408 Eighth avenue, and Miss Patricia Ann Warrington, at home; a son, Dale H., also of Charles City; 8 grandchildren; 4 sisters, Mrs. William Dondlinger, and Mrs. Joe Merritt, both of Des Moines; Mrs. William Mobley, Chicago, 111., and Mrs. George Wallace, Phoenix, Ariz., and 3 brothers, Bruce Harvey, Des Moines; George Harvey, Cedar Falls, and Ed Harvey, Waterloo.

The plane takes 10 tons of sacked coal each trip. "And I'm coal black by the time I complete each mission," MacDonald says. The airlift is a very strenuous routine. Flyers make 3 trips a day for 12 straight days and then take 3 days rest. There are so many flights going into Berlin that particular care must be taken to watch the altitude. The weather is considerably warmer than here, planes are occasionally grounded by fog but there's very little snow. Over Russian Fields At times the planes are over Russian fields, but nothing has ever happened on one of his missions, MacDonald says. An all-round athlete at Mason City high school and junior college, and former Holy Family cage coach, MacDonald hasn't the time he'd like for athletics now but has organized a post basketball team. He's also toyed with the idea of taking up skiing. A brother, 1st Lt. Jack MacDonald is a supply officer in Munich. When in Hawaii, Mickey had basketball and baseball teams which won Pacific command titles. Mrs. MacDonald, the former Evelyn Shook, has been staying with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Shook, 403 13th S. E., since her husband's transfer to t h e airlift. She drove him to Madison Tuesday from where he was to board a plane to begin the trip back to Vosburg.
