P age 6 9llth QM PLATOON ON THE B ALL By CPL. R. C T. P EARMAN It seems that Lt. May, our Commanding Officer, has started a one man campaign to get things m:ganized around these parts. He has the new basketball court well on its way to being the bast on the Base. He has his mind set on getting some heavy soil for the floor of the court. If there is any to be had, he will get it, you may be sure of that. He isn' t satisfied with the present day-room or PX arrangement, so ... there will be some changes made (but quick). He has obtained possession of building 2485, when he gets through With 1t here is how it will look: A new and larger PX will greet you as you enter the building. As you continue to tfie rear, you will find a day-room large enough to accomodate the 59th fellows as well as ourselves. It will be the ideal place to entertain your friends when they come visiting.. (See what I mean, Featherstone? ) There will, of course, be additional furniture and games. I am told that we have enough money in the company fund to buy another pool table or a pmg-pong set. As soon as we make up our minds Lt. May will find a place to get what we want, so let's go. F ellows, in reading this co lumn I don't want you to get the idea t h a t everything is running smoothly in good old 911. As a matte r-of-f<.;t life has suddenly become vet'y complicated. Did you know that there is a bloody battl<:; gomg on between a certain substitute bugler and his bugle. S o far the b ugle has won every fall. Know what happened the other morning? The darn thing froze up and absolutely refused to w01 : k. So instead of reveille we had a sub bugler dashin g abou t m his shorts bellowing "GET UP, GET UP." The reason why L t. Curley l9oks so good on the basketball is because he has been play I_ll fast competition most of his life. He starred at Fordham Prep a n d again at Fordham Uni vers.ity. After that he played ser:ru-pro. and pro ball in compe tltwn With such teams as "The Renaissance, NY Celtics and other teams of that caliber. With a background like that, who would not look good? What a boost it's going to be to our team when he takes over the coaching job. That was a heck of a fine show the USO put on for us. That giri who danced h eld the whole darned camp in the palm of h e r hand. Safeguard your own future and the future of the American way of life by investing in War Bonds and Stamps.
