HEARS FROM SON.
Mrs. Marcellus Teel received a card Friday from her son, PFC Glen Eugene Teel, who has been a prisoner of the Japanese on the Phillipine Islands the last three years.

The message on a card on which certain items were printed and concerning health he had underscored good. Then this message was typed: “Dear Mother and All: Just a line to let you know about my health. I received your nice package. I was well pleased. Best wishes to all. Love, Glen” The card was then signed in what seemed to be his own handwriting.
