But the following is perhaps the most pathetic coming to our attention, because the writer, Eugene Steigner of Pforzheim, Baden, returned home from a prison er-of-war camp only to find 12 members of his immediate family killed by the war and two others missing. The letter was written to Mr. and Mrs. Fred J. Miller and a literal translation follows: "First of all, I wish to be excused for taking the liberty of addressing this unexpected letter to you. It is, however, in answer and a thank- you letter for the men's coat I received, in the left hand pocket of which I found your self-written name and address. Hence this letter to you. "As so many others, I served as a soldier during the dreadful war from beginning to end; and the last two years I was a prisoner of war in a French detention camp. When 1 became sick, I was released the end of March this year to return to my home city of Pforzheim. Re turning there I saw the awful havoc the war had wrought, the suffering and sorrow that struck our city. In it 80% of the city was irv ruins; about 40,000 persons lost their lives in it. Among these were my be loved wife and three children, in addition my own mother, my brother, my sister and her five chil dren. My mother-in-law and one brother are missing in Russia since 1944. '•So you can readily understand the horror with which I, reached my home. I had long keenly anticipated my homecoming to my dear ones. But it resulted in tearful eyes and much sorrow when I beheld our own home in ruins, the home where our family had spent so many joyful years. All was so futile and I could not realize that I would never see my loved ones again, my wife and children, my mother and brother and sister. "There I stood with empty hands, only my heart was full to overflowing with pain and sorrow. I had nothing to eat. no money, no roof over my head. So for the first night I found refuge in the Red Cross quarters, and the next day I found a place to sleep with r,n elderly lady, where I am still staying. She had only the ration stamps for her own subsistence, so she could'l ofTer me nothing to eat. But I was grateful that I had a place to sleep. "Yes, this is how the war brought only suffering and want, and sorrow to me. as it did to so many others here. What the conditions are here now would be most diffi­ cult to write or describe. What one can get for the ration coupons is barely enough to maintain life. "I immediately after release placed an applcation for clothing, since I had nothing to wear when released from prisoners' camp except the few clothes I wore—and these were badly torn and the shoes were much patched. Up to today I have received nothing—no coat, no suit, no shoes, nor head covering, only a shirt, under-drawcrs, a pair of socks. These three items are all that I possess. "Through our pastor and the church board I received the coat in which I found your name and address in the left hand pocket as I stated before. I said to myself, I must write them and thank them for their graciousness. I am so "I see where I gotta telephone WATERS' NORTH SIDE DAIRY' to leave more milk. That little angel of Hint isn't going- to grab off my share, not while Snooky is in his right mind." For Pure Pasteurized Milk, Cream, Chocolate Drink and Cottage Cheese Call 38-F-62.

MEYER'S Four-County Hatchery Telephone No. 234 Postville, Iowa glad it is this gift that is the only thing I possess to this time in clothing. "Should you receive my letter, I pray that you will have the goodness of heart to answer it. I would not like to wear out your kind gift—however, if you have any item of clothing that has been discarded no matter what it is. 1 beg from all my heart you think of my need. "The God in his heaven I ho|K' will always project you from the want and sorrow I exporiciiccr;, and I wish for you for all lime health, success and God's blessing, at-.d in advance I give you my hearty in-! net-most thanks.
