JULIAN CHRIICHILUS . i rt MANY Kossuth servicemen in Viet Nam, Kenneth Roeber, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wilbur'Roeber of Whittemore, began receiving Christmas cards from people he didn't even know, but a letter from his mother shortly after explained the fact that the Advance had run the addresses of all Kossuth servicemen in the Viet Nam area and requested people send cards to the boys in appreciation of their work there . . . Kenneth reported he was extremely grateful for the cards and it was a real "shot in the arm" to him. Mrs. Roeber sent the list of names from the Advance to her son, hoping he might be able to look up some of the other Kossuth boys there. Roeber is in the .Army and has been .in Saigon since Aug. 5 doing personnel work. We might add that the Advance sent a. list of the boys to Bob Wilbanks, WHO radio station announcer, who will leave this week for Viet Nam to tape interviews with lowans for the next three weeks . '. . the interviews will be played back over WHO the week before Christinas. It should be noted the entire idea for the Advance project originated with our Mrs. Judy Frank, who sold the idea to Algona merchants, sponsors of the page back in late October. GORDON GAMMACK in the DM Sunday Register had an interesting tale about a lone grave in the Burt cemetery and we reprint it: Visitors to the Burt cemetery at Burt are curious when they observe a lone grave by itself, away from the rest of the ^tombstones. The story is that in the late 1920's, when highway construction was under way at Burt, a young construc- 'tion worker was killed. He had just started working and no .one knew his name or where he came from. The people of Burt contributed funds for a funeral and burial. A tombstone was erected with inscription, "The Wandering Boy." A BIG FIRE at the Coon Rapids Shopping Center in Minnesota destroyed seven stores last Friday . . . and the fire was of more than passing interest to one local firm, the Druggists Mutual Insurance Assn. here . . . they carried the insurance on the Hanson Drug store in the Center and the loss was estimated for the one firm alone at $132,000- t Incidentally, the firm was back in business the next day, despite a complete loss. Owner H. Donald Hanson set up business in a vacant hamburger driye-in nearby! DESPITE A great deal of talent, the Sunday night Garry Moore show certainly must be the longest hour on TV ... .small wonder the show is going off the air the first of the -'Vear (although its replacement, The Smothers Brothers, would ,-' interest me even less.) ;! '• Just an hour later, the Andy Williams Show, is the top j,,-.V(5how.on TV nght,.now, in our opinion. And with not much j*ettcr talent either! : THE FUND set up at the Iowa State Bank for the-Peter Ciucyk children, orphaned by a crash which killed both of their parents last month, has now reached $490.45, ovef $300 itiore than.it was when a story, about the fund and the children's plight was printed in the Advance 8 days ago. You inay still contribute if you like arid what a worthy cause this must be! A fund at three Fort Dodge banks has passed the $2,500 mark with money still coming in. The children are now be- •ing cared for by a Fort Dodge family pending adoption arrangements.
