Eulerlained By Russians; Take
"Pictures" With Empty Cameras
, Following is an interesting and
entertaining letter from a Kenne
wick boy stationed in Germany
with the occupation forces. Oliver
Routh is the sonof Mr. and Mrs.
H. N. Routh of Route 1. He was
a graduate of Kennewick high
school with the class of ’45.
' Berlin, July 11, ’46
Dear Folks:
I have been so busy lately that
I have put off writing to you.
Last week end eight Gls and
myself were picked by Col. Smith
the qu. Com. to go to Kassel and
pick a jeep apiece to be used here
in headquarters.
We rode’the “Berliner,” one of
the best trains the Germans had.
We had a car to ourselves. We got
our jeeps at the 17th Motor Re
placement Depot. Some of them
had hit France on D-Day. -What
a lot of wrecks!
At Stuttgart we hit a bad place
on the autobahn; we had to detour
through little towns and through
back alleys, etc. Hardly any ve
hicles in the ETC has a mufller,
so you can imagine what we
sounded like, roaring down into a
little town.
Entering the Russian Zone we
passed one sentry without seeing
him. Pretty soon the road was‘
swarming with Russkiee and their‘
little berp guns! We showed them
our orders written in four difier
ent languages and they let us on.
About 50 kilometers west of
Potsdam we stopped and the Russ
kee boys insisted on taking us to
their club for refreshments. So
we, to show our friendliness, went
and took rolls and rolls of film of
the boys with our empty cameras
and everyone was happy!
We had a swell time on the trip.

I am still at the same 30b here

Love to you all, and greetings

Sorry, Prices Going Up
' We are no better than Life Magazine, Time, the Pasco
Herald, and about any other periodical you might mention.
After keeping subscription prices down to the old level all
through the war years, even though there never was OPA
control, priduction costs have now risen to a point where it
can’t be done much longer. All newspapers and magazines
have already raised prices or are contemplating such a step.
Beginning October 1 the Courier-Reporter subscription
price will be established at $3.00 per year. News stand sales
prices will be raised accordingly.
However, in order to give very resident an opportunity
to subscribe or renew at the old rate we are planning to send
boys to your door to offer you that chance.
If your subscription does not expire until a later date
you can still renew and the time will be counted from the
date of expiration.
We will select ten boys to do the job. We will appre
ciate every consideration you give them.
Remember, October 1 is the deadline. -

tional rear drive, he said, in place

‘luxury appointments, the Kaiser

six cylinder motor.

Durocher says, that the entire
dealership organization of 5,000
retail firms, will be supplied with
demonstrators by September 15,
and the manufacturers have an
nounced that by year end they wil
be turning out 30,000 cars a month.

The Cow...
The cow is a female quadrupted
with an alto voice and a counte
nance in which there is no quile.
The cow collaborates with the
pump in the production of a liquid
called milk, provides the filler for
hash, and at last is skinned by
those she has benefited, as mortals
commonly are.
The young cow is called a cam:
and is used in the manufacture‘
of chicken salad. ‘
The cow’s tail is ‘mounted aft
and! has a universal joint. It is
used to disturb marauding flies,
and the tassel on the end has
Qunique educational value. Persons
swho milk cows and come often in
icontact with the tassel have vo
cabularies of peculiar and impres
sive force.
The cow has four stomachs. The
one on the ground floor is used
as a warehouse and has no other
function. When this one is filled,
the cow retires to a quiet place,
where her ill manners will occa
sion no comment, and devotes her
self to belching. The raw material
thus conveyed for the second time
to the interior of her face is pul
verized and delivered to the aux
iliary stomach, where it is con
verted into cow.
The cow has no upper plate. All
of her teeth are parked in the
lower part of her lace. This ar
rangement was perfected by an
efficiency expert, to keep her from
gumming things up. As a result,
she bites up and gums down. .
The male cow is called a bull,
and is lassoed along the Colorado,
fought south of the Rio Grande
and shot in the vicinity of the
Potomac.
A slice of cow is worth 8 cents
to the cow', 14 cents in the hands
of packers and $2.40 in a restau
rant that specializes in atmos
phere.
