684th SIGNAL REP. CO. SPECIAL BySGT.D.L.HYLAND In addition to keeping up the usual work, we have been doing some specialized work along the lines of telephone practice, radio code study and a complete study of anti-aircraft guns. On the latter, Sgts. Daehne, Zackmeyer, Madsen and Hyland have groups that insure all of the company personnel learning to assemble, operate and dismantle these weapons. Woodell should volunteer to get us a slant-eyed lady spy for target practice. The local telephone company has been angling to get Cuva for an emergency operator, but "Short Stuff" is still jumpy when he encounters a charge from the magneto that tingles through his body.

Soldiers of the four lower grades who are eligible for the m_ay obtain official blanks from their com officers. In order t? payrp.ents, men in the service are to file the applicatron themselves. Don't leave it up to the farmly. When the soldier files the application himself, he know s that the b _usmess has bee!l to pJ;"Operly. His officers will help him to fi!l out the applicatiOn and complete1y. And they can tell him what documentary proof is require d The family. can. be approved more quickly if the soldier files the applicatiOn.
