Durant, Algona, parents of Kenneth Durant, pharmacist's mate, U. S. navy, who lost his life in the Solomon Islarid area while in the line of duty in January of this year. The Durants received a letter from Secretary Knox on of the Navy Frank Monday, asking that they arrange for a sponsor for the christening of the ship on Tuesday, July 6th. The Secretary's Letter Department of the Navy Office of the Secretary .Washington, D. C, May 28, 1943 My Dear Mr.~ Durant: The name of DURANT has recently been assigned to a Destroyer Escort Vessel in honor .of your son, the late Kenneth W. Durant, Pharmacist's Mate, U. S. Navy. The department would appreciate suggestions from you regarding a sponsor for this vessel when she is launched. The Supervisor of Shipbuilding, U. S. N., at the Brown Shipbuilding Company, will arrange with the sponsor all details connected with the launching, on July 6, 1943. The department would appreciate a reply at your earliest convenience. Sincerely, FRANK KNOX, Secretary of the Navy. Parents Will Attend When a representative of the Upper Des Moines called at the Durant home Wednesday he was told that Mr. and Mrs. Durant plan to be present at the launching and to take part in the christening of- the vessel named in honor of their son. Kennetbf it will be remembered, had served in the navy about one and a half years and was then transferred to the marines and served as a pharmacist's mate. He enlisted following his graduation from the Algona high school, class of '39. In August of 1942 his ship was one of a group dispatched to the Solomon Islands region, but just where the action took place in which he was a casualty is not definitely known by his parents. The last letter they received from him was dated October 26, 1942, and mailed from the South Pacific area. Second Navy Posthumous Honor When the navy department named -a ship DURANT in honor of the service record of an Algona boy, posthumously, it was the second instance of that kind. Only recently a like ship was named SELLSTROM after Bob Sellstrom, also a former Algona boy who lost his life in action while serving on a plane carrier in the Pacific. The DURANT is a sister ship of the SELLSTROM, a 1300 ton destroyer escort. The Rev. Luther H.

Titonka Woman Loses Her Letter This morning- a letter, addressed to the local rationing board, remains in the post office here because it did not have sufficient postage for delivery. No doubt the lady who mailed the letter in the Titonka post office, asking for the sugar rationing for canning, will say that the rationing board lost her letter. This isn't so, however. There was no return address, on the letter. The local board has no funds with which to pay the postage due and the letter will go to the dead letter office in Washington. Had there been a return address on the envelope, the local board cpuld have dropped the writer ':a' ; hote""statmg"'that the"letter was in the post office here, undelivered because of, postage due. The Titonka writer could then arrange to have the postage paid and the local board would act on her request. As it is the letter is really as good as lost so far as the Titonka lady and the local rationing board are concerned. The moral is:. 'When you write to the local board be sure you have the right postage attached, and be doubly sure that your name and address is written plainly on the 'envelope. This will eliminate losses. And,, too, the board will be able to act on all questions submitted to it. According to. local members of the rationing board there are dozens of letters addressed to them weekly which never reach their office because of. insufficient : postage and non-return addresses on the envelopes. MANY CHANGES IN KOSSUTH COUNTY FARMS PAST WEEK A total of 560 acres of Kossuth 'arm lands was involved in sales during the past week, when four 'arms changed hands.

Two weeks are given to working on the ranch and two regulation scoul weeks to the camping. 1 The Philmont • Ranch pays 75% of the transportation costs and as a result scouts may enjoy the camp for a very nominal sum.
