Hello Art,
Walrenfeld is definitely misspelled.
I propose either the tiny village Wagenfeld (91 inhabitants in 1933), Kreis Ortelsburg, East Prussia, see 
www.kreis-ortelsburg.info/143/fotos01.htm , or the small town Wagenfeld (3118 inhabitants in 1890), Kreis Diepholz, 
Lower Saxony.

The villages Wallenfelde and Wartenfeld in East Prussia cannot be considered since their names are Nazi-German 
inventions of the late thirties (originally Wallullen resp. Kiauken).

Jatznik seems to be the community Jatznick (1747 inhabitants in 1925), Kreis Ueckermünde, Pomerania (now Kreis 
Vorpommern-Greifswald, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern), see www.jatznick.de/gemeinde_05_01.html .
