C. C. the rainfall in a year reaches between 200 and 300 inches, where water to drink and in .which to cook and bathe is saved from rainfalls, that is the place from which Donald Willasson, son of Mr. and Mrs. Karl Willasson, returned to Algona last week for a 40-day leave. Donald is a membe'r 'of the fighting marines and has been on duty in the South Pa<?lflic area the past fifteen months. He enlisted in the marines April 10,1941, took his basic training at San Diego, Calif. Later he was on maneouvers pn the east coast at Paris Island about six months. Then on Thanksgiving, 1941, he came home on leave and visited-with his parents here. Pearl Harbor Attack About the time his leave was over with the Japs stabbed us in the back at Pearl Harbor. A short time later Donald was a member of the group of United States forces which was shipped to the South Pacific area. During the past fifteen months he has been a part of .United States fbrces on several of the islands in the Samoa area. Most of this time, however, was spent at Pago Pago, a small town on Samoa from which were directed activities by our marines. He tells of the first attack on Pago Pago, that -of a Jap sub-1 marine which directed 22 shells at the town during the night, and that the darkness prevented our boys from locating the intruder, but that the irony of the attack .proved to be that the first shell Utterly demolished a Japanese com- ^pr^rt^-ya^iiMVpy^'ppiiii>Mvns*F»rii ta \ v ^' ,5<;The ,11,000 humans which',constitute 1 the .population of Samoa are mostly Polynesian, with much mixture of Japanese. Because of the heat and the humidity .the clothing question for the natives resolves itself to mostly "shorts" for men and women alike. In recent years English is being taught in the schools where natives take time out to go to schools. Natives are generally friendly enough, Don says, but they are easily'led'and therefore must be watched continuously by ' our forces. By virtue of living off fruits and vegetables which demand no ^extra care, which rather grow wild, .the natives are comparatively lazy, no hard work to maintain the standard of living, and the fair'sex por- tkm does most* of .that, especially since much of the male population is now being used by the Yank forces. ' Internals Somewhat Savage 1 Those of the natives who live farther inland on the islands are inclined- to be more of the savage type, wearing rings in their ears, their noses and carrying home made (Continued on Back Page) 'it' Construction on the local hemp plant is expected to be started early in May by the Rye & Hehkel Construction Company of Mason City The firm has been awarded th cont'ract for four of the eleven plants to be built in Iowa.

Bond Drive Shoit; One Day In Which to Finish Tomorrow, Friday, all Algona stores are turning in their day's gross receipts to the purchase of war bonds. No doubt this will give an added impetus to the drive toward making the quota of $670,000 for the second war bond drive. Up to Wednesday night the committee reports that sales have been going with much more strength and that the past several days had seen a good increase in the buying. While the goal may not be reached, indications are that the sales will reach well over the $600,000 mark, in fact it may be that the hopes of the second war drive sponsors may be fulfilled, or nearly so. Tomorrow Last Day With Friday the final day for the drive there are many who will buy, or add to earlier purchases. There has been no solicitation, that is, no personal salesmanship has been applied as in former drives. The drive has been made as an appeal to the patriotic privilege of individuals to "kick in" toward financing this war. A local banker said Wednesday night that when this angle was considered the drive had made good headway. The farmers have been busy, the season is one of importance to them, yet the last few days responses from the country have definitely picked up. However, we have not reached the goal and it should .not be conceded that we have, hence bond purchases should be made, many of them, today and tomorrow.

She Help the Post Office nd File Your *-»,.y ^fl t^ ^ and Address on Form The local post office wants to correct its directory, meaning that the name and address of every patron should be filed in order that the distribution of mail may be the more easily and correctly dispatched. Then, too, the new ration book, No. 3, is to be distributed by mail instead of the former system of application and delivery. In other words the application for the book will be mailed to every patron, and if your name and address isn't correctly filed your book may be misdirected and lost, hence the necessity of a correct directory. P. O.

In the case of families having post office boxes, their street address should be filled in on the form, as well as the box number, and also the names of each member of the family, even to infants. receive this form please fill it out conscientiously as outlined above and mail to the post office.
