Mail From Holland Arrives In Ann Arbor
Mail from Holland, held up since the German invasion of the lowlands started May 10, is coming through again, local persons who have relatives and other friends there reported today.
Telegraphic service to Holland also has been re-opened, it was announced here yesterday afternoon.
Among those who received word here are Mrs. Lars Thomassen of 2115 Woodside Rd. She received a letter yesterday, dated May 29, in which she was told that her relatives were safe, that little damage had been done to Amsterdam, and that the German troops of occupation were giving as "little offense as possible.” Food supplies, although restricted, were said to be still plentiful.
Prof. John A. Van den Broek of 715 Arlington Blvd., was the recipient of probably the first cabled message from persons in Holland since war broke out in that country. The cable message, sent via Switzerland, arrived yesterday and carried assurances that Prof. Van den Broek’s relatives were well.
