    Hallo Dennis,

    Thanks for this.

    I was able to find something on the "newspaperarchive.com"
    Althrough Google shows .... only two lines .....
    Mostly it's in Google's cache ...... but not in this case.

    Moving the "search" string in both way ......
    I got the whole section .... a subscription will do it ... but is over my budget,
    considering the number of persons I do have in my 50x50mi area
    There might be a photo from Patton on that page.
    Do have an annual Subscription to "Footnote.com"

    If somebody does have access to it ( Newspaperarchive ) .... let me know.
