Mr. and Mrs. Shirley Chamberlain of Schenectady and son, Teddy Chamber- Jain, AS of R. P. I. spent Sunday in (continued next column) Service Letter from Germany Sgt Stuart King, who is with the U. S. Army in Germany, has written very interesting account of a five day trip he had to some points of interest in Germany and the Alps recently. Sgt. King made a host of friends for himself during the years he operated a barber shop in Speculator. During re­ cent years he became known to winter visitors as the one in charge of the ski- tow in Speculator. All of these friends will enjoy his letter to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Louis King of Indian Lake, in which he describes what he considers “ the most worthwhile trip I have ever taken. Not only was it enjoyable but also educational.” Leaving Henback, Germany, where where his battery is located at 6;80 on a Sunday morning in a 8/4 ton truck they went to Munich, being joined on the way by other batteries and two of­ ficers. Among the places of interest they saw In Munich “the birthplace of the Nazi Party and the shriue built for the Nazis who were killed in thePurge. There were'16 of them and their caskets made of metal were placed in the build­ ing in very neat rows.” . The letter continues: “ We had dinner of K rations in Munich and left for Lake Uhemeasee. We arrived at six o’clock, exactly 200 miles from Henback. We had supper and then some of us took a swim. It is a beautiful lake and on an Island is one of King Ludwig’s castles. We didn’t have a chance to visit that one. That night 1 took a truck and went after some fresh eggs. I fin­ ally got 26 and that was the best I could do. We could see the Alps from there and did they look rugged 1 Snowy wouldn’t even be a mole hill around there, and those wore the 'foothills’I The next morning we left for BerCh- tesgaden, our destination for the day. On the way we stopped at Salzburg. There we had coffee and donuts at the Red Cross, and then everyone took off wherever they wished to go. We had 6 hours to spend there. My buddy and I went up an elevator aud visited Castle Hill. When we got*to the top, we were looking around and dwcovered five very beautiful girls which we later found to be actresses. They spoke a bit of Eng­ lish and we a bit of German, so We had no trouble. My only regret is, I didn’t go back that night for it was only about 30 kilometers from Berchtesgaden. We left Salzburg and drove through some very beautiful mountain country. Ar­ rived at Berchtesgaden that night and had supper. We could see Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest from where we were. The town itself was built on a very steep hUlf^ and olf course we explored it that evening. The people here were very an- frieudiy and showed it in many ways. Well, we returned It, with Interest. We slept in Jerry 8.8. barracks that night, the only night we slept indoors. The next morning we drove up the mountain and saw what was left of Hitler’s home. From there we went up\ to the end of the road and climbed to the lookout,. This place is as large as Hotel Sabael and built of stone. It sits at the peak of a 5,000 foot mountain. Inside it was a model of luxury. A ban­ quet table Which would seat about 40 people, was covered with felt. Two huge fireplaces and divans, plus easy chairs all around the room. An elevator took the old boy up and down to his car. A most modern kitchen surprised me most, I believe, with a huge and spotless electric stove and all that goes with it. We left there at 10:80 and went down the mountain. At 11:86 we were on Lake Konegesee. This is one of the most beautiful lakes I have ever seen. The mountains rise straight from the water’s edge to a height of 5 to 7 thous­ and feet. The snow here gets 100meters deep or about 300 feet—on the mount­ ains, of course. The lake is a blue green and has a depth of 700 feet. It is only about 6 miles long. At the far end is a old hotel. In fact it is 500 years old and in good repair. There was plenty of snow about 2000 feet from the summit of the high mountains. Our boat was about 60 feet long. The Jerry sailor demonstrated .the famous echo with his horn. It WAS really swell. At this point we were well in the Alps. (To be concluded) Indian Lake Continued Personals Mrs. Franklin Farrell and sons and Mrs. J. H. Farrell and granddaughter were in North Creek last Saturday even- Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Leonard _ were in Amsterdam last Thursday.

The soil absorbs the products of decomposi­ tion of the organic matter, prevents their loss, helps give a more desir­ able texture or consistency to the decayed mass and makes it easier Start your compost pile with a layr er of leaves or clippings, or manure layers with soil, ped pile with ve — *1 matter wn ag or other loss iddcts. The soil at-topped sides, so that organic matter will rot down without leaching or of of decomposition proddets. layers, two to three inches thick, al­ ternated with layers of organic mat­ ter about twice as thick with the top layer being soil, is your compost pile. It should be kept moist and to has­ ten decay mercial fe content, should be thrown over each layer of organic matter. Brooding To insure norma growth, experi­ enced poultrymen are careful to see that their chicks have enough rooi The value of plenty' of brooding space is no trade one principle of agement. Th( secret; it’s simply good poultry man- ■centage of death number brooded loss goes up as the under one hOver increases, extension poultrymen- say. Successful poul­ trymen seldom attempt to brood more than from 350 to 400 chicks under one hover. Usually they limit the number to from 250 to 300. Chicks also need plenty of fresh air without drafts. \The safest prac­ tice is to provide adequate ventila­ tion and enough heat to keep the temperature up. Sunshine Sabotages Milk Sunshine, one- of man’s best iends, is just a wolf in a top hat here riboflavin (vitamin G or B-2) is concerned. According to exten­ sion nutritionists almost half the riboflavin content of milk can be lost in two hours when the milk bottle \s left exposed to sunlight, even on a airly cold. day. On the other hand, of riboflavin occurs whe: ; left in milk is left in a dark room for hours, nor is there any loss when milk is stored in a refrigerator for seven days.
