YESTERDAY'S HITS

Editor:

Boy, can I identify with "Who Put The Bop?" [Jan. 24]. I'm 5years old, and I, too, cherish my 45 rpm record collection. I listen to my tunes via a headset, otherwise I get hollered at by my 16-year-old daughter.

Thanks for the article. It was groovy.

ENDEARING SENTIMENTS

Editor:

Enjoyed your selection of valentines [Way Back When, Feb. 14]. For the record: "Congratulations for your birthday" is the translation of the text of the windmill card.

GARDEN ENTHUSIAST

Editor:

"The Real Dirt" is the first page I read in The Sun Magazine. Mike Klingaman has a rare and priceless sense of humor I love. Reading the garden column is worth the price of the Sunday paper.

ABOUT POWS

Editor:

I'd like to add a little something to your story about prisoners of war ["Prisoners in America"] in the Feb. 21 issue of the Sun Magazine.

I spent two years in the mud and mountains of Italy with the 34th Inf. Division. A soldier received a letter from his wife telling about dancing and entertaining the Italian prisoners. They were being wined and dined while he was fighting for their country. He threw down his rifle and walked off. I never saw him again.
