Our Neighbors in the Service

Spirit Lake, Ia.—Friends here were advised by Sgt. Vernon Retig that he was liberated from a German prison camp.  He had been declared missing October 4, 1944, and more recently a prisoner of the Germans.  He has arrived in the States and expects to visit his parents at Queen City, Mo., formerly of Spirit Lake, and friends during his furlough.
