M-OC Court Roma Rowenhorst, Sophmore Ann Doornink, Freshman Barb Krommondyk, Junior >ffers from friends 9/25/71 i.'.rpptings from Heidelberg! Wo find we haven't time or postage to write all our old freinds in OC so we'll take their advice and use this medium to contact you all, and CT' to set down to individual cases later. But, be understanding; it may be a lot l.itcr: I just got a job, and v/rn't have much leisure time. Due^an rarely gets his nose out of the dusty books to write. We miss you all, plus tie comfort and space OC i,tiers. We keep seeing things ,-,p wish we could show you, or souvenirs we'd like to send "Oil. \VP left OC August 12th with the help of profs Kaericher and Rorex, who drove us to Omaha at the crack of dawn. Reached Frankfurt without incident and took a week there ouying a used Opel sedan. \rrived here August 19th and II.-K! the crreat rood luck to • ind an apartment without any hplp on the 21st. It's in what i-vidPiitly used to 1)6 the neighboring village of Klrchhelm, slightIv south of the old city of lleidplliiirg, and all is built up in between. What it is, it's a rather dingy, narrow- st reefed old town with no parks, and lots of churches with loud bells. Our building is one of the few new ones, and the sexton goes wild with three big bells at 6:30 a.m., for 10 minutes, several days a week. We have three rooms and bath on the fourth floor, and the children have three bedrooms on the top floor -- more space than we expected to find in a crowded land. We received our furniture from the former apartment where we lived in Freiburg, in 1968-G9, and have bought the essentials to make this one livable ... that is, Barry- was still sleeping in a sleeping bag until yesterday, when we boueht our last 2 blankets. I walk 1-j. blocks to shop every day, to keep our little 18" X 30" refrig filled, and I carry all that grub up 8 nights. On Saturdays Barry and Deb are home from school to help me carry 2 days' provisions. We're all in fine condition from stair-climbing, and it doesn't bother us any more. That is to say, Barry WAS in great shape until Sept. 9th when he and his Canadian pal were riding bikes on a busy highway and he changed lanes with a signal and a prayer. An American major in a VW Minibus knocked him 10 feet, and he lay in the university hospital for 12 days with brain contusions. He's been home now for four days, and is supposed to rest a week 104 CENTRAL AVENUE, SW., ORANGE CITY, IOWA AN OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER of Sioux County, Iowa and the official paper for the City of Orange City. before going back to school. His headaches come and go, and he says he can neither hear nor smell well yet, but the doctors said he would recover. He and Debbie are happily enrolled in the American Army School and really pleased with every aspect of it except the overcrowding. Debbie's Gth grade is taking interesting field trips to historical places and watching skilled craftsmen do handwork. They're going to the mountains, too, on nature study trips. She wrote her grandmother that they'd stay in a "youth hostile"! I attended a meeting for interested parents the other day. Onstage were the skinny little civilian principal, and three big Army brass. When some mother asked what could be done about a troublemaker on the busses, the bird colonel in charge jumped up and offered two solutions: 1. The kid's name could be given to the MP's. 2. The father could be transferred right out of this command! Now HOW ABOUT THAT Mr. Kromen- dyk?!!! Life is so uncomplicated in a dictatorship . . . Lynn and Carol attend a German school in the old city as auditors, but are doing all the work, with our help. Lynn's found two other American girls right in her class, who showed her the ropes and explain an assignment once in awhile when she's lost. Carol's class (5th) is the youngest in the school, which goes to age 20 -- ten classes in the school. She studies "hand work" (fancy work), biology, geography, English, German, modern math, art, religion and gym. Lynn, as a sophomore, has the same, minus fancy work, thank goodness, and plus advanced algebra and French IV. Not all subjects meet every day, and they only have school from 7:50 A.M. to 1 P.M. six days a 'veek. They also plan a 3-day Munich SUBSCRIPTION RATES, payable annually in advance, $5 per year In Sioux and adjoining counties, $6,50 per year elsewhere. for SECOND CLASS POSTAGE PAID ORANGE CITY, IOWA 51041 PUBLISHED Thursdays, continuing an 97-years tradition of community newspaper service, REPRESENTED In the national advertising field by weekly Newspaper Representatives, 36th Year - No. 45 - October 7, 1971 excursion to Lynn's class. Don is studying hard every day at the German Seminar of the university. He'll be able to drive me to work, for 1 just landed a job at the Romance Languages Seminar as secretary to the library and one professor, I start in two more days. This should really help my vocabulary in six languages, two of which I don't speak. (Italian and Romanian!) On weekends while Barry I was in the hospital, we five have been hiking through the I forested hills, climbing about i 300 meters and exploring all ! the hills around the fringes of the city. Now today we took it easier , and drove to a picturesque village which has preserved all its old architecture and lord's manor, etc. The road wound along the Neckar River for 25 miles in between high hills covered" with autumn foliage and pines, clay-roofed villages, the occasional fortress on a promontory. We observed the interesting traffic on, the river -- about 30 barges and a few sailboats and yachts. The smog is fairly thickhere, and I imagine our movies will look faded. Barry was able to walk around Erbach sightseeing for an hour. He'll be back in school in a couple of days. We plan to stay on here until Duggan gets the Ph.D. or the money runs out, or we feel like leaving, whichever comes first. Breng ons enn bezoek, o.k.?
