Charlie, who was liberated March 7th after being held prisoner by the Germans lost both legs from exposure to the cold and ueglect by his captors. He was attached to the combat engineers of the 10th Ar- mored division Charlie's many friends will be pleased to know that he is con- valescing nicely at this time. He was fitted to artificial legs sometime ago and "gets around" very well. He will report back January 7th to Battle Creek.- He was accompanied to Win- throp, Monday, from Minneapolis, by Mr. and Mrs. Horst Boettcher of Gib- bon and Mr. and Mrs. Gordon Hagg of here.

His dad was an engineer on the M. and St. L. and later the family moved to Minneapolis. He has flown for Northwest Airlines before being called into the reserve and since then, his life has been one adventure after another. 20 Days Left For Veterans To Reenlist Veterans, have you ~got economic security ? As a former member of the Armed Forces, the Secretary of War, Robert P. Patterson, is interested in you and wants you to know that a career in the Regular Army will give you all of the economic security you want now and in the future. But you'll have to get on the ball, if you want to be sure to get in on the ground floor of America's streamlined Regular Army. If you are thinking of reenlisting, you'll have to get back on Uncle Sam's payroll 20 days after the date of your discharge if you want to regain the rank you held at the time of your discharge. Remember men, you have 20 days! And here are some othe.~ things to remember and think about in regards to the economic security this new Army offers: Extended reenlistment furloughs, enlistment bonuses, educational and loan benefits, family allowances, re- tirement on half pay after 20 years of service, and choice of 18 month, two or three year enlistment periods. Men who have served six months previous- ly as privates will be reenlis':ed as privates first class. Men who reenlist [ for three years have their choice of[ any component of the AGF,~ASF or t stop a car as on dry pavement, if speed is the same. On glare ice it takes eight or ten times as far. These stopping distances can be cut down materially by using chains, and by sanding or cindering. Some of the things that cause p~od visibility are under the driver's con- trol and some are not. He can control the condition of his ov, m ear, and is responsible for seeing that the equip- ment is in good order. Headlamps should be in good order. The Wind- shield should be kept clean.
