That question came Monday to the Globe-Gazette from Jandresits, 1421 Washington The 3 women were part of a wealthy family in Raabfidisch, Wungary, until the end of World war H, Jandresits explained. Since that time they have been i->Ps, displaced persons, in Germany. "If. I could find a German- speakmg farmer somewhere not too far from Mason City who needed a housekeeper, I would pay their passage over here to nelp them," Jandresits said. Cannot Buy Food His niece, Mrs. .Rosa Haftl, 42, and her daughters, Maria, 19, and Margarete, 17, are now in Oberstenfeld in the U. S. zone of Germany, according to a letter he has just received. Recently they suddenly lost even the part-time employment which they had had, they wrote, and now they cannot even buy food. Only 3 years ago the family , farm ' * restaurant S? T hotel m Raabfidisch. Then the Hungarian government confiscated all the property and drove all German -speaking people across the border They were permitted to take nothing with them except what they wore _ About a year ago, his own and his family's clothing in tatters and unable to buy any, Mr. Haftl attempted to return to Hungary to get some, Jandresits "said He was caught by the British, however, and interned. He died soon after in a camp hospital. Here Since 1903 Since then, life has been increasingly difficult for Mrs. Haftl and her daughters. Jandresits has periodically sent them food and clothing packages, he said, but the cost is so high as to be prohibitive on a long-time basis. "If there were just some German-speaking farmer that needed them to help him ..." Jandresits came to the United States in 1903 and was back home in 1924 on a visit. He operated an auto repair and machine shop on N. Federal from 1917 to 1938 when he retired. He has worked only intermittently since although he revealed proudly that he worked for 3 years during the war when machinists were needed.
