Dad in Alabama?

Found this interesting little tidbit, a post card to Bruno (B.W. Schwencke) from "Son" mailed in Montgomery, Alabama.   Dad must have been on a visit to them after he came back from Europe with the Air Force.  Seems that Walter didn't enroll in some school since it was on strike, etc. (Don't you wonder what the etc was?)
Isn't it amazing that Bruno kept this card all that time, then Mom and Dad kept it too.  Now it's landed in my hands, all the way since being mailed on April 6th, 1945, at 7pm.  Notice that it took ONE WHOLE penny to mail a post card back then! ha!
