Arriving at Chicago he telephoned Mrs. Gilbride here as to whether or not any word had been received from New York. Being informed that none had been received here he proceeded on to the city, arriving there Tuesday noon. He found that his son had passed away Sunday night, and that a message had been sent to Algona notifying the family, but that wire had never reached here.

Considering the size of Algona and the* many cities and towns of larger population, this is an outstanding record foi; the local boys.

Such cities as Cedar Rapids,'"' Sioux City, Council Bluffs, Mason City and other large towns trail the local store by many.thousands. Fort Dodge even trailed Algona with only $75,928 sold in bonds.

It is customary to wait until official notification is made by the War Department before the organization 'commander gives full details, however I should have written before now. Bob was killed August 10th as a result of a mid-air collision while on a patrol flight at this station. Both plane and pilot crashed into the sea, which made recovery of the body impossible. Bob %vas an excellent pilot and possessed all the courage and daring that .is so necessary in the make-up of a fighter pilot. His loss was severely felt by the entire squadron and especially by his fellow pilots, myself included. We all thought he was "tops in every way. The personal effects of Bob were sent to you some time ago. Due to transportation difficulties and the distance involved they may not have arrived as yet.

You should see the geraniums, some of them five and six feet tall Beautiful date palm trees, pretty reen well trimmed hedges, rose sushes in bloom, orange trees, fig :rees, and lots of flowers, don' know the names of them, and the quarters are comfortable and the !ood is good. Our place is nice bu just step out in the rear and yo see the natives of the place.

Loss, TJSDA war board chairman, in-, formation has been received from Washington that dairy feed Price adjustment payments will be based upon sales of milk and butterfat made from October 1st to, De-* cember 31st, inclusive. As a result of such, ruling H will be necessary for the producer to keep a record of all milk and butterfat sold as indicated above. Mr. Less said price adjustment payments will not be made unless the p&e 'i8qsi$wf9 waTbt H» the producer. "Along the streets are open markets with fruits, vegetables, etc., and they look so nice, but I just couldn't make myself eat any of it when you get a glimpse of the proprietors. Sanitary conditions are very poor,, in fact unheard of so far as tKe natives are concerned. "These people believe in taking their afternoon nap and they lie down wherever they are and go to sleep, right on the sidewalk .or anywhere. As we were driving up here the other day there was one lying almost in the middle of the road, sound asleep, with army trucks, jeeps and what not buzzing by with only inches from his head. "You see little native and French kids, maybe 8 or 10 years old, hiking along with big baskets full of stuff on their heads, balancing it without holding it at all. See lots of French kids with boards across their heads and on them loaves of fresh .baked French bread. Looks good, .brown and crunchy looking, but buzzing around it will be millions of flies. They have a community bakery here and everyone makes the dough into loaves at home and then bring it to the bakery to be baked. "Well, I must quit rambling for this time. Hope all of you are all well and having a good time as 1 Be sure and write. Mary." OCT.20-BARE DATES SELECTED FOR APPLICATION Only One, Over Eighteen, Should.
