Incidentally, wo can't help noticingthat the N:.'vy keeps the Leggott nose buried in books at both classroomsand labs, which is something a long line of exclusive schools neverachieved.Another thanks to DAVE V/OLFE who is now busy at the Hawthorne Schoolof Aeronautics in Orangeburg, S.C. He writes that the "Tattle" is onething he looks forward to every month..CLARENCE B. HOKE JR. —P.F.C. U.S. Army (and by the way that'spretty snazzy stationery, Clarence) deserves orchids or some more uso-ful prize for writing us all the way from Africa. Clarence tics forthe long distance record with his thanks. Ho must nevo felt like adebutante, because in on e mail "The 4th and 5th issues of our ever-in-creasing volume" arrived, plus five letters from iii.s fatally, a cartonof Chesterfields and ten other pieces of mail "from other sources"—hcart interest, Clarence? Also, P.F.C. Hokc got his hands on the New-ark Evening News of October 13 and it was just like being at homealmost, anyway.

Va,
and, as of January first, "Mud ,' mud,mud, is the order of the day. .frionover ho gots liberty he goes intoNorfolk, but it's tho same old ctory--"Too many pooplo around." If ourmemory doesn't fail us (don't worry", it never does)''Bill is the strongsilent type who used to trap

yourself,
CORP. 'V. II, xTKITlIAN. Seeing as how theaddress is care of the Service Club, Camp Swift, Texas, the "Swift"makes us wonder if it's Harry Roitman, that killer diller of formerdays. How about it Corporal? Anyhow, he has just been transferred toM.P. Bn. (which makes absolutely no sense to our un-railitary minds) andis near Austin, capital of the state and location of the University ofTexas. W H. Reitman misses Millburn and particularly the Paper-millPlayhouse. They're both still hero, so hurry back soon, and thanks forwriting us,CADET RICHARD F. MEYER is now at the Edgewood Arsenal, Maryland, aft orlots of training and traveling since he entered tho service in August.Certainly, wo remember you, Dick. In fact, how could we ever forgetthat session of trying to "watch the birdie" while you wore takingmovies of the A.W.V.S. and O.C.D. activities last May? Your best hasbeen forwarded to Mesdames Vcit, Drehor, and all tho others you usod toknowexcept for a large share which we've taken for ourselves, first.And heroes a

the
upper third of a classof 90 men and he's now a qualified searchlight electrician. Sounds hardto your humble scribe who is easily baffled by a simple fuse. RecentlyDick and a group of pals wont on an'excursion deep into tho interiorof Louisiana and picked up a lot of local color enroute- beautiful pas*tol stucco homes slathered with old iron grillwbrk, and, farther out,old ruins; also several Chinese farms with the' owners working neat rowsof vegetables in wido-pcoked straw hots. Popping off o few largo snakesbroke the monotony and they finally ended up by swimming in n cold «.

Field, Wash.— .McFog Field, as far as he's concerned. Corporal Hanson got home on afurlough recently and although ho had a swell time, he is still busytrying to regain the seven pounds ho lost. Evidently, tho heat andfood situation wore him down, but, as he says—quote "After wo turn thoheat on Schiklegruber we can turn it on ourselves again". As to thefood, the situation (which wo don't mind now at all) wasn't oven notic-eable until he met it face to face. After

Don has gone from Randolph Field to Kelly Field, and thento Muskogee, Okla. There he ran into some home-town draftees who wereat Camp Gruber. After Muskogee, Don travelled on to tho Army Air ForceBasic Flying School at Enid, Okla,, which lands"him at last in Winfield.At present he's cooling his heels and piling up flying time in his log,expecting to leave for an O.C.S. in Florida sometime this s.pring.Thanks for writing, Don, and take it easy,STAFF SGT.
