All were J TUNE TOPPERS glad to see me, and I was glad to SBLES 1'0 US ;g ;;; Holland. to take my daughter home. After that we left, my oldest son, Peter, him wife Annie and little Hart dressed up as a cowboy. He was Roy Rogers, by the way. We had dinner in a restaurant at my request so Annie would not have to, bother when we got at my sons house. Th% food was 'ood, but, high. For a dollar in Holland. I got 3.60 gulden, but our I dinner with one drink for us wan over 30. gulden. I did have to buy a raincoat which was 37.70 gulden. After spending two days with Peter, I went to my daughter Ad- di's home for a couple of days, and then to my son. Wim, in Oeg- stgeest, a suburb of Leiden. Here he teaches school. Here I remembered war condi- tions, not the destruction, but the prices and food. A teacher over there does not make money like here, but, the food prices over there were outrageous. My son is paying back to the Holland gov- e.rnment his loan to study. He is a very religious person, and has lo give 10 percent from his take- home pay to the church. When I was there, he had to take his three-year-old girl to the dentist to have teeth pulled. Wim's wife Annie was a nurse in the war, but. she cannot work because she is a teacher's wife. The class difference in the good old country, you know. So there is my only worry, a teacher as a son, but no food for the family like we have iL here in the United States. Peter, my oldest son. determined like his mother, changed his pro- fession and is a long distance truck driver. He comes home with 192 gulden a week. Both of the boys want to come over as soon as they can, but, I would like to have Wim come over here first. My son-in-law, Hans Smilde, also a teacher, is doing much better. IRis parents are helping out quite a bit. On Oct. 10 I left with my sister for German.

The following day we went to the convent where my dad had died in 1949 and to Kettering on the Ruhr to the cemeteries where my brothers who had died since I left for the USA were buried. I was glad to be home in the country I came from. Often I did have to stop and look again, It was the old, and again not. The house where I was born was re- built, somehow the same, but again iL was not, The church where I was baptised was in the same place, the Father who gave me my first communion was no more. I felt like running back to the States. After the Rhine Ruhr center, my homeland, I went to Frank- furt where I was married and lived until I came to America. I saw all the families of my former hus- band in Frankfurt. AL the time I lived there, I was Mrs. Noss. I stayed with my former neighbors, Mr. and iflrs. Rudolph Beck. Here in Frankfurt I got the biggest sur- prise. I did not know my way around any more. Frankfurt was flat from three days and nights of bombing, and when I left iL was still the same. There is now a new city. Some of the old historic buildings, like the House of Goethe, and the old cathedral and many more are restored in their old glory. My old home, a restaurant my mother and father-in-law manag- ed for my husband and me during the war while we were in Russia, is there no more. There is a bank in its place. I was standing in the pouring rain and looking. I only could cry to remember the bomb attacks the old buildings had stood up under only to be removed. It was not right. The surroundings had not changed. I WALKED for miles, seeing some familiar faces. They looked at me and I looked at them, but, I knew I had forgotten their names. My sister-in-law I saw first on the street. I said "hello Mrs. Noss" in German. She said hello, then, all at once she recognized me and said, "hello Mrs. Noss". Mrs. Joe Cheney and girls ar- rived here from Bangkok, Thai- land, last Thursday. She will stay with Mrs. Oscar Smith for the time being. Her husband Capt. Joe Cheney was stationed at Viet Nam. Early in September he was shot down somewhere in that ter- ritory. The Navy mothers of Shelton met at the home of Mrs. erie Dean here Oct. 30, to cut and sew layettes for Navy wives. They had a covered dish lun- cheon. Those attending were Ma- rion Richardson, Eunice Sharp, Gertrude WesteoLL. Daisy Pinny, Mildred Prouty, Sally Prouty Ber- tha Lord, Mary Baxter, H.elen Pearce and Georgia Fanning. Bonnie Allen. Bette Cowan, Che- ryl Cowan, Tammie Arkin and Janis Fanning, with other stud- ents of the Hood Canal Jr. High went to Aberdeen Saturday to the Girls League Fall Conference. This was held a the Hopkins Jr. High. Sandy Bollinger is secretary of Northwestern Girls League Di- vision. LITTLE KAREN BITTLE was given a birthday party by her par- ents. Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy Bittle Sunday. This was her first birth- day. She received many gifts and a delicious dinner was enjoyed by her grandparents Mr. and Mrs. Lyle Bittle, her Uncle David Bit- tle, and Mr. and Mrs. Nat Stairs her aunt and uncle. Also two lit- tle cousins Cindy and Gregie. It was a pretty big day for a one .year old. KAMILCHE The Thanksgiv- ing holiday festivities are begin- ning. The Kamitche Ladies' Club entertained their husbands and children at a Thanksgiving dinner at the Grange Hall Wednesday evening this week. Mr. and Mrs. Wade LeRoy of Puyallup were visitors at the An- nie Whitener home last Saturday. Mrs. David Whitener was hen- ice cream were enjoyed by, Mr. and Mrs. Stcelman.

Just all tle- rackets' wd ve here in the union. American companies are build- ing in Germany right and left, and are making a killing in re- turn. A refrigerator, like a 20-gal- lon hot water tank, costs 200 marks. You cannot buy a pound of meat for less than 4 marks. Mr. Bock's daughter-in-law gets 4 marks an hour in the Ameri- can PX but, the American help gets only $1.25 an hour. The feel- ing between the employees is not too good because of the socialized medicine and the social security for the German employees. I was nursing over there before, in and after the war, reading and working in the office of a doctor here. You can keep socialized med- icine, yott just have to be with it to see the difference. Democrats or Republicans of should not even think about this bill at all. You may think I am joking, but I am not. My brother-in-law has coal dust in his lungs. He gets eL good pension, granted, but good medicine, no. I could tell the AMA a story about this. I was afraid to answer any questionsj.n Germany about our Negro rest*sulLy, but. strange, no one asked. I was asked if I was a Democrat or Republican and how America was thinking over the wall in Berlin. MY BROTItER-IN-LAW told me the factory did put in TV for the workers to see our president in Berlin. They were impressed when he arrived in West Germany, but, when the president said on TV he was a Berliner, all went back to Work. My nephew said "TanLe Betty, you have to see it to-realize what is going on. I was upset to see the German peo- ple speak so plainly about Cuba, Russia and so on. Most of all to hear the sirens. After so many years they scared me. To my question of "why". I was told they are kept in order and starting in 1964 all of the peo- ple will have to practice again. To sd a country destroyed, and then to come bsck again after 16 years and see all those beautiful apartment buildings which have one up, a person stops and won- der. I went through German apart- ment buildings right on the main street in FF1V[ and saw Negroes living beside German people, wash- ing their windows like the Ger- mans dd. I felt ashamed to myself right theu about the wlole Negro situation here in America. And I realized deep down Amer- ica is only a good old Santa Claus. We give and are stabbed in tl'e back with a knife. I would never say I want to be an American who did not go to vote, because then I would not have the right to complain. I came to this country to be an American and I am glad of it. I know my children will be so Leo, and I am not ashamed to tell you all. I am glad to be baek. A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more tta u great deal of money. ----John Ruskin of Los Angeles, Calif. returned to their home last week after spend- ing two weeks at the Avery Kel- ley home.
