CoL Beverley's conClusion is based not only on personal observation, but on reports from technical inspectors assigned to all overseas commands to supervise the maintenance of comba t airplanes and equipment in the Army Air Forces.

Friday, 4, 1942 690th Chatter By OPL. HAL BRAZEAL I think we have set some sort of a record for a company our size. To date we have lost 15 men to O.C.S. and it looks as the Monmouth is still going to drain us of officer material ... In spite of the fact this isn't the FASHIONABLE season, .Sgt. Teed and SjSgt. Kelly are going on to Miami for their officers training . Lieutenant Thomas is off to Chemical Warfare School at Edgewood Arsenal. The lieutenant has hardly had time to catch his breath since just a short while ago the bars were pinned on the shoulders. Our very best wishes for an inter_esting course, lieutenant. Pay day is an awful day to try and concentrate on words fo hunt on a typewriter. Everybody is doing the town and yet I don't envy them a bti. How will t _hey all get on the bus? I've learned 'by lesson. I take a box lunch every time I wait for it. If it gets any more I'll take my shaving ; ( .};;:fand a sleeping bag! It's a bad ... gag, but you fellows know I'm not far wrong. Well, now we have a volley ball court. ... Just give us a wee!' or so of practice and we'll be open for challengers. I don't think any of us are exactly experts, but our spirit can't be Competition is very keen. So keen, in fact, a couple of our boys were cut to the quick over a minor aiscussion of the game. You have never heard such marvelous vocal cords as we have in our company. Any one of ten of 'them could take the place of a public address system and never strain their oral cavity .... I wouldn't even mention Gebauer's initials! T/4th Grade Hill is off to Maryland to take the vows. His wife-to-be says the ceremony will take place in a church. Hill is determined it will be for a few friends at the minister's lwme. .. It will be at the church. It beats me why a fellow :battles a losing argument. Captain George has been much more than our commanding __ officer. Wehave had three fellows in the hospital going through a stiff share of pain. The Captain has found time off from a very rigorous job to pay them all a visit and give them a lift. The men are all back with us now and really appreciate the gesture. I think it's time to say something about the food at mess hall 15. Gentlemen, 'tis a gastronomic delight to eat there. I presume S/Sgt. Lloyd from the 690th has a great deal to do with it ... Taking. a quick gander at his midsection, I would say he eats his own food and takes great pleasure' in it. . This won't offend the sergeant. I think he is quite proud of his embryonic bay window.

Waldor Thalleen was recently accepted for Officers' Can didate School and has already reported for duty. This is a big loss to us but we are sure that 'he will make a very capable officer for the United .States. Pvt. Harold Green fell off the upper bunk of a double decked bed last week. He received no serious injury but has received a lot of kidding. Green will make no statement as to the reason for the fall. Pvt. DeSanto h:as quite a following these days.

In your next letter. home, tell the folks about the job the Army is doing to relieve the national shortage of raw materials and urg e them to .help in this vital scrap collection effort.

We, in the Army, must bet be hind the national s c r a p campaign and wholeheartedly s e t an example of cooperative effort to overcome our Nation's r a w material short ages in basic industries. Each of us has a job to do; our salvage officer has a job to do; our Na tion has a job to do. By doing it, we can ma.ke certain that, "For want of a nail-our Country will not be lost.

Chew Wrigley's Spearmint Gum Yes, you fighting airfort:e men know how much a little stick of chewing gum can mean when nerves are tense or you've got a tough job to do. Chewing cools your mouth-keeps your: throat moist. Makes the water. in that. canteen go further. Helps steady your nerves during strenuous flights. Seems to make your tasks go faster, easier. So chew and enjoy swell-tasting Wrigley's Spearmint Gum every day-as millions do, Buy More Bonds ..

It's a day that gives us the. chance to prove what we've been saying for a long time now. That although there's no comparison between the hard work and danger and sacrifice of your jobs and ours-still we're doing what needs to be done to back you up, and we're giving it all we've g ot. And we're not taking time off for holidays either. to all G-E the Ill So if you think, of us today, don't imagine us doing the usual Labor Day things we used to do together-clambakes and picnics and swimming parties. We'll be right here in the shops. We'll be turnh1g out stuff for you to use, and counting on you to use it where it'll do the most good. This won't be news to you who've gone into the services just recently-but if you've been away even six you'd scarcely know the Works. There are a lot of new buildings, and even new plants-just how mar.y and where we're not allowed to say. There are a lot of quee r-looking machines going through the shops-things that you probably know the use of better than we do, but which none of us ever expecte d to see being built in General Electric factories.
