"When I saw the cat and dog
fights between the British and
German planes over the English
Channel in World War I, I
thought I'd never go up in an air-
But William Born, tool and die
maker in the Plant Department,
did go up in an airplane. He and
his wife flew back to their home-
land, Germany, this past summer
on the Airflight to Europe, spon-
sored by Student Government
Born, who has been with the
University since he emigrated 28
yers ago, said he "greatly appre-
ciarted" the work SGC did in
sponsoring this flight and he
hopes that they will continue to
sponsor sucli flights.
Contrary to previous trepida-
tion, about such a flight, Born
felt that it was one of the unfor-
gettable experiences of the trip.
The chartered flight ended in
Amsterdam and from there the
Borns took a train to Braunsch-
weigen, Germany, where they vis-
ited Mrs. Born's sister. Leaving
his wife with her sister, Born then
proceeded to visit the few mem-
bers of his family still living.
In Westphalia, he me .his sis-
ter and brother. His sister had
traveled from the eastern zone to
visit him as he did ;not want to go
into 'that zone even though his
home town, Bresslau, was located
there. From what little he could
learn from his sister, who was
very reticent, to talk, Born said
that things were "quite bad" in
the eastern zone.
htays in Zone
Born's father stayed in 'the
eastern zone even after his moth-
er had died in the early years of
World War II. He was known to
be living in 1945, but no one had
heard of him since the Russians
Born's brother had been taken
prisoner by the Russians during
the war and shipped to Russia. As
soon as he became too sick to
work, the Russians shipped him
back to Germany.
When he arrived his wife barely
recognized him as he had become
so emaciated. Though he had lost
70 per cent of his hearing, he did
pick up a part time job to help
maintain his family.
On a steam ship cruise up the
Rhine 'river from Frankford-on
