Gale Leek, is serving and at that time stationed at Indian Town Gap, Pennsylvania. The company was fitted out with rifles and traveling equipment and about the same time the newspapers carried a story that 7,000 American soldiers had been landed at some point in North Africa. Mrs. Olson, therefore, naturally- assumed that Gale was one of the men who had been sent overseas. Up to the present time she has not heard from him. He had previously written that indications were they would soon go overseas 1 . Gale joined the army July 1, 1941, and until last October was stationed at Camp Lee, Virginia. From there he was sent to Fort Benjamin Harrison in Indiana for a time and then to Fort Meyers, /Virginia, from whi-ch point he thought to be sent overseas for active service. , : During the past week Wftft erioe McEvoy, clerk of courts, issu- '' ejj flve .licenses. to wed as follows: 'Pb and Phyllis Max* 0.

VWi'th the, ; exports markets closed by Hitler's conquests the Canadians have no place to sell their wheat. Rather than harvest it and store it in inadequate bins for the -boll weevils, the farmers are letUng the wheat stand in the fields and will harvest what they can in the spring. Mr. Gutknecht was more fortunate than some of his neighbors and was able to put his crop under cover. i ttnlon: Mr. and Mrs. George Kohl have received a letter from their son, George's wife at Phoenix, Arizona, stating that George has been released from the hospital. The doctors notified 'him that his injuries will be permanent. His right arm was so badly crushed that it will remain crippled the rest of his life. They considered break'ng the arm over but concluded to give up the idea, telling him the seriousness of his injuries. His chest was also crushed and he carries a wound there which is still .in a draining con-. dition (from removal of a blood clot). They had planned to keep him confined to the hospital but released him to enable him to get out in'the fresh air.. He and his wife have apartments at 600 N. Second Ave., Phoeni'X, Ariz. His wife has employment. George was employed in the office of the sub-depot at Luke Field, Arizona, when injured. It will just be a matter of .time now until he will be discharged from the service.

"Just a Little Something From Swea City to Hitler'' Says Kossuth Boy This "letter home" 'from "somewhere in England" was written by Lieut Richard Sher r man of the United States army.

His book, 'to Mary With Love", was made Into a movie, By Lieut Richard Sherman Somewhere in England— Th!a is for the folks in Kossuth county in general and for Mr. and Mrs. Paul W. Larson of Swea City, in particular. Swea City is In the northwest part of Iowa and Is a good many thousand miles from the United States army -air force bomber station where this Incident occurred. But as someone has already observed, it's a small world— and gettng smaller. I was standing in the mud and the rain when a chunky, round- faced, blue-eyed air force lieutenant approached me, and said, in good and familiar m!<Jdlewestern accents, "Say, aren't 'you from Algona, Iowa? My name's Merlin Larson, and I'm from Swea City." Algona and Swea City are about 30 miles apart, and until that moment I would have said ithat nobody now in England had ever heard of either of them, This, then, Mr. and Mrs. Larson is a report on how your son looks 'after the two months he's been here. He looks nne. This morning when I saw hjm he was wear-r tog galoshes and G.

He came to England by convoy last September as armanent. officer „ for the squadron of the bombardment group (H), which operates the big four- motored B-24's more often called Liberators. Hears from Parents Pat says he hears from you regularly, Mr. and Mrs. Larson, ami in fact he has gained considerable prestige as having been the first man In the group to. get a letter from home. "That's my mother on the ball," he explained. "She's postmaster at Swea City and I guess she got onto V-mail before most other people understood it." As armament officer, Pat has the responsibility of seeing that all the ships in his squadron are properly loaded with bombs and ammunition before they go out on an operation. Installs Bpmbs The ordnance department makes and delivers the materials, but from then on it's up to Pat to see that it ts maintained and installed. It's an important job and he works at it, sometimes staying VP all night so that the ships, will oe ready to start in the early morning on a mission. Other men told me that Pat is one of the most respected and best- liked officers at the station, and that he is particularly successful in keeping up the spirits and morale of the ground crews which work with him.

' By noon he's worked up sufficient appetite to do justice to a large plate of meat loaf, potatoes, carrots and fresh tomatoes with lettuce. Peanut gutter and marmalade and jelly are always on the table, and he can always have all the sugar he likes —no rationing. There is no butter though there i? plenty of oleomargarine. And if all this isn't enough he can go to the station's post exchange and buy his weekly rations of a couple of chocolate bars, a can of salted peanuts and cigarettes. lowans In Group Pat is one of several Iowa men in this particular group. In addition there are Lieut. Robert Shannon, of Washington, and Lieut. Robert Johnson, of Denison, both 'of whom are pilots.
