Iowans Enjoy Rest Period in Holland
(Photos included)

These photographs were taken in Holland while front-line troops of the 35th Infantry division were enjoying a rest period.  They were sent to The Register by First Lt. E. H. Zielasko, a former S.U.I. student, who writes that Iowans in Europe receive much pleasure from the pictorial reports of home towns in the rotogravure section, and adds:
“It occurred to me that the people in Iowa would be equally interested in a pictorial report of their sons, relatives and friends overseas . . .”

Pictures were taken by Signal Corps Photographer Armond R. Guinn, Los Angeles.

“To Show You They Haven’t Forgotten How to Smile,” the lieutenant explains, “these three Iowans beam broadly at the camera man. They are from Left:  T/5 LeRoy Anderson, Red Oak, Staff Sgt. Lloyd W. McKee of Corning, and First Sgt. Milo Saylor of Waterloo.  All are font-line veterans with the 320th regiment.”
