WESLEY SOLDIER WRITES OF SOUTH PACIFIC ACTION The following letter was writ ten by Lieut. Don Lickteig, t& h! parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Lick teig, Wesley: ' „ "" South Pacific, Aug. 27 My Dear Polks: It has been quite some tim< since I last had time to write, am still well but, of course, I am fa,r from being happy; the future looks none too promising, doesn' look like a White Christmas for me. . Censorship regulations hav<- • eased up somewhat so perhaps can .write a more interesting letter. During the past 11 months I haye certainly done some trav- elingi That adventure crave 1 once : had has been permanently satisfied. I spent quite some time in mosquito infested New Cale• donia. The most beautiful place hav6 been in was New Zealand and I enjoyed the short stay ttiere The' people treated us as thpugh we were their saviours and -Were so friendly. At that time a" Jap invasion seemed imminent. Since then I have been on Guadalcanal. Rendova, Russel Islands,' Vangunn, Vella La Vella and New Georgia. If you get a large map • of the Solomons you will be able to locate all of them. I am a veteran at dodging bombs and bullets. Frankly I surprised jnyself with my coolness; It seems you get so you just don't..give a darn for. anything. I've ; had some close calls, such as a Jap machine gun cutting twigs : six-inches above me even though I was lying flat on the ground. I • had control of the company during most of the Munda campaign, and by the way,, I was -complimented on my work. With those men under you it's impossible, to think of yourself. Every time I sent out a patrol I sweat blood: until the boys came back. There were some very tight squeezes and some time I'll tell you .about them. I can't tell you where I am now but you don't have to worry because this place has been cleaned up for quite some time. I will break down and tell you that I haven't felt the best in the past few days. The army' doesn't take, chances, they take good care «f'"a man. They put a man in the hospital for little scratches, colds, or anything, and that's where I am now with a slight touch of malaria' nothing serious. I tried The Alfbha Upper D6S Moinfel, Algotta, towa, Octobet 7, 1943 Inch you move"d dver. Beards got so long we Lincoln in his log-splitting dtfys. And our hair just becomes a tangled mass You know it takes many different kinds of people to make the world go around and I believe I've seen every type. I've seen men who have what it takes and lye seen those who wave a white feather when the going gets tough. Men can fool you before the battle with big talk, but when it is over and you look over the depleted ranks all you see are MEN. The boy in them is gone. Of course a man, no matter how courageous he may be, is not impervious to slugs and shrapnel. Well, I will close for this time. With love to'all. Don. Television Pioneer M. W. Sche'ldorf, former Westside, Iowa, man who has spent a number of years in research work in radio for one of the largest electrical companies in the country, is credited with finding a process that may make television emerge from "just anound the corner". A recent magazine article tells of the process, a new system of transmitting ultra short radio waves. Scheldorf is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John D. Schel- dorf of Westside.
