WEDNESDAY, MARCH 24, 1*1 Remember the story we carried last year of the coming here of Paul Greinus' father from Germany? August Greimis. the father, hadn"t seen his wife since 1944 when both were placed in camps in western Germany after being driven from their home in eastern Germany by the Russians. They hadn't seen each other during the four years in exile until Sunday morning when Mrs. Grenius arrived here from Chicago where she had spent six weeks with a daughter. Now she and her husband are reunited in the home of their son and daughter-in-law near Frankville, and according to eye witnesses the reunion was a most touching scene. » * * * * Prospects are good for another dozen or more homes being built here this summer, and we've heard of several new business houses being planned. The impetus building was given last summer will more than likely carry through for years to come, if materials are forthcoming. An advertisement of an apartment for rent in the Herald last week started a near riot—that's caused by the continuing demand for living quarters here. It's discouraging to those seeking a place to live, but even before the war Postville never could meet the demand for rental properties. But on the other hand, it's an indication of a good town, as we see it—certainly better than if we had a lot of vacant houses with no takers. Perhaps in time when all those wanting to possess their own homes have met that desire, a few homes will be available to renters. In the meantime, we'll all be watching the new- homes that are in prospect for 3 948. ***** "We'll be glad when that hydraulic drilling outfit gets done with its work of preparing the excavation for the cables to feed current to our new street lightings system. Whatta lot of noise they make! Gladder still are we that we don't have to handle the business end of the drill—appears to us that's a man sized job. (They've worn 'out three men on that job already.) ***** Now that basketball is out of the way. local sports fans are beginning to talk baseball. We happened Happy Easter Bring your family in for EASTER SUNDAY DINNER Serving from 11 :30 to 1 :30 V. & J. CAFE "FOOD WITH THAT HOME-COOKED TASTE" across Glen Jarmes the other day and he's started to fret about the pitching staff of his Pirates. "I've got Walby and Tehel signed up," he confided. "But I'm trying to convert Arbe Bareis from a first baseman into a pill-heaver: that would give us a powerful staff, if Arbe could regain the form he had on the mound while in high school." Tryout practice is to be announced soon, the Jumbo man told us. 'Tve just got to get busy at baseball to keep my mind off the circus season."
