All I saw C?ut there was a stingaree and a fish that had everybody guessing as to its parentage. Anyhow, the chow was swell. Our noncoms who got a well-earned furlough Monday nite were 1st Sgt. O'Brien, Tech Sgt. O'Neil1 (sure sounds like the Fighting 69th), P.F.C. Conn, Sgt. Roumeliote, Cpls. Drutsch, Her ring Seder, Stalcup, Grayson, etc. Som'ething tells me that when they get back, we won't be where we were, per usual. The gossip is that Dickerson spent $5 two days before pay-day for some' trinket that some lass back in Indiana. That looks like a .case. Which is louder, Squire's paja mas. or Geiss ? And how can you figure Goss beefing about going on those hikes and then squawk ing when. he's left out? The "pa jama kid" inJilur company is little La Rotondo who, weather permit-1 ting, wears at least the tops for formations (in the dark). A big cheer for our new offi cers-Lts. Robert M. Warren. and John M. Madden. It's a swell com pany. If we all pull together there's: no reason why we can't have a I big party-with lots and lots of beer and women, and pretzels and women and sandwiches and worn.
