Country Comments by Bill Robinson, Publisher
of my crew had died; it appears that they tell everybody this to try & break their nerves which don’t require much breaking at that stage of the game. I then spent six days in solitary confinement on bread & watery soup whilst they tried to get information out of me. Christmas Day 1943 was the worst day of my life. I think I was just beginning to feel the shock of the crash, I was in solitary confinement, I didn’t know who of the crew was dead or alive, and I kept thinking of you at home worrying over me. I am sure I nearly went crazy that day, I want to laugh, cry and shout all at once; when I think of it even now I shiver!
Boxing Day I was taken out of my cell & the following day I met George Rhett & the rest of the boys & we departed from Frankfurt by train to Muhlberg where I remained until I was liberated by the Russians. I was never at Luft 3, but our mail and parcels were supposed to come through that camp. Stalag 1VB. Was an army camp but there was about 1,200 RAF chaps there; the rest of the camp consisted of Americans, French, Dutch, Italians, Russians, Danes, in fact every nationality in Europe; on the day of liberation there were 27,000 prisoners in the camp. We lived in huts, 90 feet
long, usually 220 men to a hut but on occasions we have had over 400 in huts built for 200. In these huts we lived, cooked, smoked, talked and slept. Our beds consisted of three-tier bunks reaching to the roof; in bad times we had to sleep two to a bed or on a brick floor which used to freeze in winter. Jan. 45 is a month I will never forget in my life because of the shortage of food, fuel & blankets; it’s a wonder more chaps didn’t die. The health of a lot of chaps broke down and in the winter of 43-44 typhus broke out, which earned the death of hundreds of nationals other than British; the chap in the bed beside me caught typhus but recovered from it.
Each year, on Veterans Day, our church honors our war heroes. With the death of my dad, Meredith Robinson, last August, we only have one World War II vet, O.H. “Shorty” Nowlin. The generation of WWII heroes will soon be history. For those that are still among us we must go out of our way to extend our appreciation. Among the articles my dad had saved over the years was the following written by War Correspondent Ernie Pyle near the end of WWII. “. . . . there are so many of the living who have burned into their brains forever the unnatural sight of cold dead men scattered over the hillsides and in the ditches along the high rows of hedge throughout the world. Dead men by mass production – in one country after another – month after month and year after year. Dead men in winter and dead men in summer. Dead men in such familiar promiscuity that they become monotonous. Dead men in such monstrous infinity that you come almost to hate them. Those are the things that you at home need not even try to understand. To you at home they are columns of figures, or he is a near one who went away and just didn’t come back. You didn’t see him lying so grotesque and pasty beside the gravel road in France. We saw him. Saw him by the multiple thousands. “And we can never forget those sights . . . nor should we.” My dad never could forget. Up until his death he experienced nightmares about the loss of his buddies, the faces he saw when they liberated the death camps and the bitter cold when he thought he would freeze to death during the night. —CC— In my files I have a letter written by Airman Jim Cahir who served with the Royal Air Force Bomber Command of the 466th Squad, flying a four engine Halifax heavy bomber in Allen seniors Beyla Skelton, Erin Warren and Cheyenne were named to the South 1943. After being shot down and spending eighteen months Central All-Star Fastball Softball team. as a prisoner of war in Germany, he was sent to a hospital in Halifax, England, where he wrote this letter. He submitted this letter in memory of his pilot, Flight Sergeant Patrick Edwards of the Royal Australian Airforce Squadron 466, to whom he owes his life.
Dear Mum, Pat & Vincent, Well, here I am in England once again. You have no idea how wonderful it feels to be a free man, just to look out of the window and not see barbed wire with machine gun forts along it is a pleasure in itself. Once again I feel like an individual instead of just an animal ordered around by the fear of a gun – it’s a marvelous feeling to be free! Well, I don’t know where to begin the story; I think the best plan would be to go back to [the] night of Dec. 20th 1943. We were attacked by German aircraft just after bombing Frankfurt on Main; the fighters set us on fire and the kite went into a dive for 10,000 feet before Pat managed to pull it out; he then ordered us to bail out and I think we were at a height of approx. 8,000 ft when I jumped. I landed without injury and did the usual things such as hiding my chute etc. I was eventually picked up twenty-four hours later by a German who handed me over to the Gestapo who in turn gave us over to the Luftwaffe and whence my life behind the wire began. Well then looking back over that night I have no one else on this earth to thank for saving my life but my “Skipper” Pat Edwards; it was only by his bravery that I got out with the rest of the crew. After we had been hit Pat remained very calm, fought the controls and eventually pulled the kite out of a death dive for just long enough to get his crew out, his last words to us still ring in my ears: “Good luck boys and if those so and so’s catch you don’t tell them anything.” When I was taken to the Luftwaffe HQ’s I was told that the rest

Mustangs end season with loss at Fox Allen High School unable to keep up with high-powered Foxes in 52-6 setback
By HERMAN BROWN Allen correspondent The Allen Mustangs saw their 2012 football season come to an end last Friday evening at Fox. Coach Kenny Deaton’s Mustangs were beaten 52-6 by the hosting Fox Foxes. The Week 10 setback came in District B-2 play and put the finishing touches on Allen’s 2-8 campaign. Fox 52, Allen 6 Allen - 0 - 6 - 0 - x - (6) Fox - 26 - 18 - 8 - x - (52)
The Mustangs came into the game very short-handed. Making matters worse, they were facing the No. 4 ranked team in Class B. The odds seemed impossible – and turned out to be exactly that. “We played a very good Fox team,” said Coach Deaton. “They (the Foxes) did what they should do in this game ----

and took care of business. Even though we lost, I am proud of these (Allen) kids and especially proud of the seniors for their effort and leadership. We faced a lot of adversity this season and they never once gave up on our team. They showed signs of maturity and were just outstanding young adults.” The seniors this season are Conner Johnson, Cody Hopper, Zack Conley, Michael Stick and Robert McMillin. They will now turn over the program to the younger players. “As for these younger players, we’ll take them and hit it as hard in the off-season as we ever have,” Coach Deaton said. “We’ll bring in some of those 8th graders from this year and they’ll join the ones we’ll have back next season. We’ll have something to build on over the next few years. The future looks good for our football program.” As for the Allen-Fox game,
the Mustangs fell behind 26-0 in the first quarter. Fox scored on a pair of rushing touchdowns and threw for two more TDs. The Foxes added a fifth touchdown early in the second quarter to go up 32-0. Allen then responded with Colten Browning’s 20-yard touchdown run to make it a 32-7 score. Fox countered with three consecutive touchdowns, including the final TD in the third quarter. The last score closed out the Foxes’ 46-point mercy rule victory. Allen finished with 7 first downs and 170 yards of total offense. The Mustangs rushed for 108 yards and passed for 62 more yards. Fox had doubles the totals, including 14 first downs and 387 yards of total offense. The Foxes were very balanced with 190 yards rushing and 197 yards passing. As for individual totals, Col-
ten Browning led the ground attack with 15 carries for 105 yards and 1 touchdown. Conner Johnson completed 6 of 15 passes for 62 yards. Dalton James was the leader with 2 receptions for 28 yards. Colten Browning was a close second on the team with 2 receptions for 25 yards. Aaron Manuel added 1 catch for 8 yards. Patrick Leonard rounded out the attack with 1 catch for 1 yard. On defense, Colten Browning was the most active. Browning recorded 6 tackles. Little Sky Frazier was next on the list with 5 stops. “Considering we had only 13 players suited up, we did about all we could do against such a strong opponent,” said Coach Deaton. “We weren’t able to win, but our kids never gave up in the game. We just lost to a very good team.”

~ SORGHUM ~
by Cleo Emerson LeVally
I was in Wewoka for Sorghum Day again this year. As usual, when I am there I think of my own days on the farm in Allen and working around the sorghum mill we had in the field up from our house. I think of how particular my dad was that the sorghum he produced was more like honey, in color and taste, than the sorghum made at Wewoka. The end
result was the way that Dad wanted it from growing the cane, getting it to the mill and the way it was cooked and stored in those silver colored tin buckets. It was an exciting and very busy time for our family. We cooked and served more meals than was usual because there was so much help needed, so I went back and forth from helping my mom prepare food,
to working around the sorghum mill any place that was needed. One of my chores was to keep the wood moved to a spot that it could be used to put under the pan when needed. We had to keep that fire going so the cane juice could boil, and cook until it was just the way that Dad liked it. He supervised the whole operation. Also it was a good time be-

cause so many people came by to get a bucket of sorghum, and there was a lot of visiting. The sorghum we made was always on our table at breakfast time. When we had hot cakes, it was poured over them. It was stirred in soft butter and put on hot biscuits most of the time. For other meals, a tablespoon was stirred into navy or brown beans as they cooked. It was considered a staple during those farm days. One interesting thing was we did not have to use the mules to pull the grinder that pressed the juice out of the cane. We moved to Allen with a 1925 Model T Ford. When it wore out, Dad kept the motor and used it (when needed) to power everything on the farm. It was used when the peanuts and Black Eyed Peas were harvested. He used it to teach they
boys how to work on motors. I thought that was interesting. He would take a tow sack and lay it down next to the motor. As he took each part off, he would lay it on the sack and tell the boys that everything much be put back in exactly the same order that it was removed from the motor. If they did not know where to put it, to not put on another part until they found exactly where that piece would go. All the boys learned how make repairs on their own cars in that manner. For years I saved recipes that used sorghum, thinking I would publish a cook book. Well, the next time I was at the Museum, they had a book with sorghum recipes, and my collection is still in a box on my computer desk. Next year before Halloween, I will try to remember to publish a recipe I saved on how to make Funny-Face Cookies.

Pharmacist’s View Persimmons
Downtown Allen looks pretty sharp with the fall decorations around the lampposts and of course the decorations at the entrance to the walking trail. There are more than two or three people responsible for these deeds and I hesitate to start naming them as I know I will leave a bunch of names out. But I will anyway. I see Joy McDonald Anderson, Beverly Burkett Wilmoth and Brenda Capps Allen working pretty steadily on these projects. Mika Strong, April Whitehead, Lisa Peay, Melissa Sells and the 4-H crowd were out in large numbers in the City Park Saturday morning planting some rather large trees. Many parts of town have been picked up and look a lot better. Liter continues to be a problem all over America and here in Allen too. Like a “teen’s” messy bedroom you can gripe all you want but keeping it cleaned up is the main thing— and it’s good to see the job getting done. In a perfect world we would all keep our property cleaned and avoid littering by tossing trash from the windows of our cars but as
far as I can tell, we get to keep on picking it up. I wrote about persimmons predicting the weather a few weeks ago. Indian lore has it that you can break open a persimmon seed in the fall and find out what kind of winter you’ll have. There are a lot of ways to tell, so they say about what kind of winter is coming up and we give a lot of credit to the Indians for their ability to do so. So how do you tell from the persimmon seed? Slicing the seed open reveals one of two things inside. Either a perfect little white fork or a little spoon can be found. A fork means a bad winter while a spoon indicates mild. I had hoped by writing about this that as in years past, someone would go out and get a messy persimmon, cut it open and report the results. But no, I heard from none of my readers except a large response (two people) who wanted to know what I had found out. So I drove around and finally located some persimmons out behind the Quick Pic and did my work. Inside was a spoon.
Thankfully, no one ever keeps up with these predictions so we can claim whatever we wish about years past. The new Dollar General on SH-1 and Commerce Street in Allen has caught the attention of area residents and it appears their quiet opening last week did not go unnoticed. I went down there the other night to scope it out and was somewhat surprised at the large number of shoppers pushing carts up and down the aisles as though the store had been there forever. For sure it’s a nice looking addition to our town and I’m sure it is well appreciated by residents in this entire area. I see our high school got an “A” on the state report card— something of which we can all be proud. Our teachers work hard for our kids and we commend and thank them for this good mark. School activities are ramping up and I don’t have to urge people to attend school assemblies and the like here in Allen—they already do. Our large school auditorium was packed out with standing room only last week
with school patrons (some who take off work) to attend and support their kids who put on the Fall Music Program. In particular we thank Mr. Cody for his hard work with the bands and music groups in our school.

Mark Legg, Allen church of Christ “We don’t need anyone checking on us! We started going to church, but then found out that they were checking the roll and if we were absent, the preacher would visit us or send us a letter. We don’t need anyone telling us we should attend church!” It seems that some people feel they do not need or want
3:13) And, “let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works.” (Heb 10:24) Jesus told Peter,”Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.” (Luke 22:31-32) How can Christians be like Jesus if we do not do anything to encourage and help our fellows to live as God directs? Shouldn’t we strengthen each other as Jesus told Peter to do and pray for one another as did Jesus for Peter?

Light from God’s Word the help of the church. True, the church should not be trying to tell people what they should do. God has revealed to us in His word what we should do and not do. However, shouldn’t the church be concerned about people living and doing as God instructs? It was Cain that denied any responsibility for his brother, when God asked him where his brother was. He replied, “Am I my brother’s keeper?” Does the church (the church is simply Christians) have any responsibility toward Christians? Should Christians care whether other Christians attend worship and Bible Study? Aren’t we told to “exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin?” (Heb

The barrack rooms were full of fleas and the Germans used to [do] nothing about it. The food situation was very serious; I can honestly say that the Red Cross kept us alive; the food the Germans used [to] give us I would not give to any decently bred dog. Please don’t think me bitter toward Germans; I don’t think I am! All I am doing is looking back on things & giving you my own opinions. Since being back in England I have thought a great deal over the last eighteen months and I have changed a lot in my outlook. When I landed in Germany I was pretty green & young in outlook even though I kidded myself I was a man of the world and perhaps I even acted as one; it was not until I got behind the barbed wire did I see what war did to men. Men who had been living peaceful lives suddenly whipped away from their families thrown into a dirty camp and forced to work on hardly enough food to live on. Then shot dead because they were hungry and stole potato peelings from a rubbish cart; another man shot dead because he was hungry and attempted to steal some strawberries from a German garden. When I first went to 1VB it used to make me sick to see Russians groveling in the dirt looking for something to eat, [illegible] that had been lying on the ground for weeks, fighting & kicking one another over a piece of spud peeling, but after a few weeks I became like the rest of the camp, a silent spectator knowing that one day the tables would be turned. Jerry’s prison was composed of men, women & children. Do you remember Warsaw? Well in our camp there were 1,000 women & 600 children between the ages of 6 and 10 years who were deported from Warsaw and were destined to work for Hitler & his allies; that is only one case of forced labour; there were thousands of young girls & women in Germany like the one I met who had been taken from their house in occupied territory, tattooed with a number on their arm & put to work. Well, Mum, if I don’t stop this you will think I have become a cynic and developed a hatred of the Germans. I assure you nothing of the kind has happened; as far as I am concerned I neither like nor hate the Germans and I think they deserve everything that’s coming to them. Now to get back to the camp; we were liberated by the Russians on app. the 23rd, the day that they linked up with the Americans at a place called [illegible]. It was quite an exciting week for us; as you no doubt know we were hemmed in on all sides and the SS put up quite some resistance; air activity preceding the liberation was great; the American fighter pilots used to put on shows for us over the camp, but the [illegible] was obtained when fighters stopped an ammo train about ½ mile from the camp; did that train go up with a bang! The night before the Russians arrived the German guards packed up & [illegible] for their lives and it was not until the morning after we went out on parade to be counted that we discovered that we owned
the camp. The Russians left us in the camp & continued their mopping up operations. About a week later they told us we had to get out as they needed the camp, so we went to a place called [illegible] about 20 km’s away and installed ourselves in a German Military Barracks; myself & nine other chaps thought we would like a little comfort for once so we lived in a flat that had been occupied by a Nazi official. We spent about a week here in [illegible] until we got a bit tired of it; then we decided that the Russians were not doing much about getting us home, so we walked out on them and hiked along the road until we reached the Mulda River at a place called [illegible]. There the Yanks picked us up & fed us like kings. We then traveled to Halle, spent a few days there and eventually were flown out by Dakotas to Brussels where Danes picked us up to fly us to England. On reaching England I was admitted to hospital suffering from malnutrition. I feel O.K. but the old tummy can’t get used to good meals; consequently I am on a milk diet; I expect to be in hospital two or three weeks so don’t worry over me. I have lost a bit of weight, but on a milk diet it shouldn’t be long before I put it on again. When I think of all the girls at home doing all kinds of things to get their weight down I smile; tell them to send a stamped addressed envelope to me & I will [send] back the secret to them. The rest of 1VB is still at [illegible]; the way the Russians are carrying on they could be there for months. The Russians are a funny crowd! I still can’t figure them out so I won’t attempt to give you my opinion of them in a letter. I had a visit from Auntie Agnes & Uncle Shamus yesterday; I think they expected me to be nothing but skin & bones; I began to feel sorry I had disappointed them. They brought with them a couple of your letters, also a few from Mary; they also told me that Vincent had joined the Navy; nice going, Vincent! I hope you enjoy the life. Don’t worry over him, Mum; this war will be over very shortly & we will all be back with you. I am enclosing a list of letters I received from you; I received many other letters from other people and answered them all in one way or the other whilst I was in Germany. I will write to everybody again within the next couple of weeks. At the moment I am a bit out of practice writing letters, and besides it’s not the easiest job whilst in bed. You might tell anybody that has written to me that I really appreciate their kindness and I will drop them a line later on. I don’t think there is anything you can send me. I am expecting RAAF HQ’s down here within the next couple of days; they ought to be able to enlighten me on certain things. Yes, there is one thing you can send me – that is a “fruit cake.” It’s a few months since I tasted a good one. Well, Mum, I must close. I know I have left a lot out and I will save it until I get home. This letter writing is not such an easy job [as] I thought it to be or perhaps it’s just because I am
out of practice. Kindest regards to everybody back home. Love XXXX, Jim —CC— As long as I publish this newspaper, honoring our veterans will always be a top priority.

THE ALLEN ADVOCATE, NOVEMBER 8, 2012 - PAGE 16
We are certainly having a beautiful fall. The leaves are so many different colors. God has blessed us, but we are still praying for rain. We are looking forward to the Thanksgiving season. We will be having our Thanksgiving meal this Sunday after church and we invite you to attend. Sharon and Wayne Sanborn brought our special for the day, “Why Me Lord.” They are both talented musicians. Bro. Larry’s sermon was taken from Hebrews 9:11-15 and entitled “Christ’s Sacrifice is our Hope.” The
sacrifices of the Old Testament were inadequate. The sacrificial system highlighted the deadly problem of sin. Sin is not merely “shortcomings or mistakes” with minor consequences. Those who would ignore or dismiss sin are in grave danger. The commandments were not given to keep us from having fun. They were given to show us the way to Life! Sin is a violation against an absolutely Holy God who will not ignore it. Sin, when it is finished brings forth death. Although inadequate, those sacrifices were not
insignificant. They were a reminder of the deadly nature of sin. They were a means of experiencing grace. The one offering the sacrifice would be reminded of his need for God. The sacrifice of Christ is substantially different. Christ became that final sacrifice. He was the Perfect Lamb of God. He was offered as the sacrifice for all sins of all time. Those who come to God must come through Christ. The sacrifice of Christ was much more than symbolic. It enables those with changed hearts to live trans-
formed lives. The sacrifice of Christ is forever sufficient. Those who have accepted Christ have experienced a profound change deep within. They no longer live as they once did. Those who have accepted Christ have a hope that extends into eternity. The Holy Spirit within them enables them to live with purpose, hope and assurance. Their future is firmly in the hands of a Loving, Caring,
Forgiving God who has accepted them. We want to thank everyone who came to our Christmas Bazaar Saturday. We had a great time visiting with all our friends and neighbors. Sunday, December 2nd, at 6:00 we will have our annual Community Christmas at the Atwood Fire Dept. Santa will be there and we will have snacks and refreshments. Everyone is invited.
Atwood First Baptist Church News
Thanksgiving plans are in the works now for church families and relatives alike. You can almost smell the turkey, pumpkin pies, and pecan pies already. While we’re preparing for the big day let’s remember to prepare our hearts, too, to truly give thanks to our Father in Heaven from whom all blessings flow. Torie Hammonds opened our services this Sunday by reciting Genesis 1:1. Joyce Searcy sang “The God on the Mountain is still God in the Valley.” There is probably a shorter title for the song, but this is the message, and it is one we all need reminding of from time to time. Rev. Karch’s message was titled “How to Love Life and See Grand Days,” from I Peter 3:8-18. Peter writes here that Christians should be of one mind, and that means that foremost in their minds is the winning of people to salvation in Christ Jesus. Christians should also have compassion, love, sympathy, and courtesy toward one another. They should repay evil done against them with blessing and prayers for that person. Hard to do—but it is heart touching and inspiring when people accomplish this. Peter tells us that to love life and see good days we are not to go around saying bad things about people. Instead, do good, not evil, to others. Seek peace with those around you and don’t cause fights. He says that the Lord sees the righteous and is attentive to their prayers. However, His face is set against those who do evil. Every Christian is a witness for Christ and should be ready to give a reason for their hope in a gentle and respectful way. People like to be treated well, and if you do that it is likely that they will treat you well in return. Life lived in the way Peter tells us will mean that anyone who badmouths us will eventually be ashamed of it. However, there are times when Christians will be criticized and persecuted. At these times, remember that it is much better to suffer for doing right than to suffer for doing wrong. God rewards the suffering for doing what is right. Jesus suffered unjustly, but the result was that he gave us salvation and He left the Holy Spirit to dwell with us. He left us completely taken care of, and to love life and see great days we must invite Jesus to be the center of it all. Loving life and seeing great days is not about dollar signs; it is about having a close relationship with God. Then you will not only have a good life, you’ll have a great life!
