Fred Diekmann Writes, Australia Years Behind Writing from somewhere in Australia, Fred Diekmann, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Diekmann, Sr., Wesley, says Australia seems far •behind us in many things. Fred •will be remembered as having been employed in the Iowa State Bank here prior to his enlistment in the armed forces last February. He •was stationed at Shepherd's Field, Wichita Falls. Texas, for several months before being sent to Aus- trial. Excerpts from the letter to his parents: ISomewtiiere in Australia? "Most -everything in Australia seems to be many years behind America. You see very few real late mode automobies and, of course, all cars drive on the left hand side of the road. That is one thing whenever I crossed a street I couldn't get used to looking the right way for the traffic. Trains are smaller and not as powerful as •ours and all of the coaches I have ridden on are made of wood and not steel. Most all freight cars are about a third the size of ours and have only four wheels compared to our eight. Every state in Australia has a different gauged railroad, some narrower, and some •wider than ours. "The Australian people as a rule have treated us American- boys very fine and get quite a kick out of conversation. Australians, "of course, talk with English accent and rather fast, which sometimes I find it rather hard to understand. Most all of the people are of Scottish, Irish, or English decsent. "As for myself, I am fine, in good health, and taking advantage of all the pleasures I can while here."
