I[307; -- 18--Pres. Ro evelt confers o By Eva Chandler My phone rang---"Our official no- tification came thru this morning-- Ivan was only slightly wounded", was the good news I heard ffrom Ivan's mother, Mrs. Carter. Several days ago the family had received an air mail letter from Ivan telling them not to worry when they received the official announcement. The letter had been censored at the part telling what hap- pened. The official notice was equally brief, saying that Ivan had been slight- ly wounded in France on July 18th. Ivan had written his air nlail letter July 20th so the Carters feel much relieved and grateful that matters are no worse. They hope inhis next let- ter Ivan can tell them more. After a busy six weeks Sgt. Don V. Atkinson is back in England for an ~ed and much needed rest. D~n art in the invasion, but beyond ing that it was "pretty hectic" did not have much to say~ about it. He writes that he is eager to be home again, hoping to be here in time to give his young son, Kenny a flew pointers before he begins going with the girls. Don is the son-in-law of Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Butler. S/Sgt. William Borter has been transferred to a new squadron, which in his opinion is "really swell" because he can work on planes every day in- stead of once or twice a week. The planes are all new B25's in this squad- ron. He gets quite a thrill on being able to work on a plane that isn't so old that it is just about falling apart. No doubt that working on decrepit planes has helped to make him the good mechanic that he is. Bill's new zddress is S/Sgt. Win. H. Borter 19(D3061, 498 Bomb.Sqd APO-920, San Francisco, Calif.

Charles wa~s born in New York March 10, 1908 During his residence m Avalon he was employed by the Santa Catalina Island Company from 1936 until Sep- tember, 1942. ~arley, as he was known to all ]sl~inders, will always be remembered for his friendliness and happy dis- ])osifion. He loved A~alon, was con- .tinuously asking for news of his many ffriends, and always looked ,forward to ~he time when he would return from far distant shores to take up life in the place he called home.
