CLYDE ZIMMERMAN REACHES ENGLAND - Mrs. Clyde Zimmerman has received
word from her husband, Pvt. Clyde Zimmerman, that he had arrived somewhere
in England. He reported an uneventful crossing, and said the weather
was cold and rainy much like the present Iowa weather.
He was inducted a year ago tomorrow. He is comfortably quartered
and has good food, he reported. Zimmerman left three weeks ago, and
this is the first word his wife received. He is a graduate of Iowa
State college, in 1941. His wife is making her home in Ames.

Mrs. George Zimmerman has received a letter from Hugo Otopalik
who is in the Red Cross somewhere in the British Isles, telling of a recent
meeting with her son Clyde. It was at a Red Cross Club and he was
the first boy from Ames that Otopalik has run across, and considers it
a "small world" when one thinks of all the boys he comes in contact with
He reported his club has 1,000 beds, and said they feed 1,200
boys daily. They work on a 24 hour schedule which means hard work
and long hours, and he likes his work. He said that Clyde was fine
and sent best wishes to his parents from the British Isles, and hoped they
would both be home soon.
Clyde is now a sergeant in the Air Forces, aerial photography
division. He writes his parents each week.
