Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - September 25, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Americans Still Revered As Liberators by Dutch Ily ISuli Consldlnc KINIJIIOVKN, The Nether- lands The Dutch lake their freedom seriously. In im- maculate cities such as this wlio.se names have absolutely no meaning to a new genera- tion of Americans we are still revered as godlike libera- tors. Our flag evokes more open admiration than it does in most places in its homeland. Perhaps the flag isn't so revered in the U.S. because no foreign foe ever ground his heel in our collective neck and thus we never knew the. exhilaration of being liberated by knights in shining armor come to help us from thousands of miles away. Thus the feature attraction of the 30th annual patriotic fes- tival the other night in Eindhoven's spotless square Roy Nordstrom Is Executive of Disabilities Inc.

The burghers greeted them with about the same amount of fervor as the older people in the crowd acclaimed the arrival from the skies of the men of the 82nd and 101st air- borne divisions in World war II. Grip Broken In the desperate fighting that followed that greatest drop of the biggest war, the iron grip of German occupation forces was broken and the Nazis were chased back into the Ruhr. The operation spilled more blood than the much-better- remembered D-day invasion of Normandy. The British First airborne division, strong, assigned to capture the big bridge at Arnhem, up the road from here, lost men. The Dutch remember these 'events as vividly as Americans remember Gettysburg, Cha- teau-Thierry, Omaha Beach, Guadalcanal, the bombing of Tokyo, Porkchop Hill and Haiphong. But most Americans would be surprised to know the extent to which the U.S. is entwined in the hearts of people who live in such towns as, say, Nijmegen. The celebration in the public square brought thousands of marchers, cyclists and two or three dozen thundering bands lo the scene. Many carried torches. There were children who must have been as young as 4 or 5 in some of the marching groups. Every Year There were fireworks in the distance, blinding floodlights focused on the flags of the allies who made this night possible. And a reverential hush as Prince Bernhard, in uniform, stepped forward lo lay a wreath on the.Tomb of the Unknown. But this was nol a once-in-a- lifelime ceremony.

Downtown Parkadn Ruildiny Correct Claim Number Speeds Medicare Funds People covered by Medicare medical insurance can assure faster payment of their claims if they make sure their correct claim number is on all forms, according to James N. Wood, social security district manager in Cedar Rapids. "About one of every three delays in Medicare payments is caused by the use of a wrong claim number or by the omis- sion of the number al- Wood commented. He stressed that if Itemized bills are sent with a claim, the number should also be written on each bill. The claim number appears on the health insurance card issued to everyone covered by Medicare, Wood said. Medicare medical insurance helps pay for doctor bills and many other medical expenses of almost everyone 65 and over, disabled people under 65 who have been entitled to social security disability payments for 24 consecutive months, and eligible workers or members of their families who have chronic kidney disease. Medical insurance is a voluntary part of Medicare, funded by individual premiums and federal revenues. It is administered by the social security administra- tion. j GAZETTE TELEPHONE NUMBERS For HIM, Sporlj, Bookkitplng, C.nmol mfor- mollon and Olliiu Kol [bud Bolow Wl .................3J8-82M IlKulolion.Subutlpllon Dspl...... 398-8333 Mon. thru Sol. 8a.m. lo 7 p.m. Sunday, Unlll II Noon Holiday!

The company told the boys to try scrap steel dealers. "It was a far-fetched, although justifiable, said Tadahiro Osaki, a com- pany spokesman.
