This week found the 302nd back at its u sual grind of work, sweat, play ahd calisthenics. Last week's vacation at Belleair Beach is now but a memory-one that is sooil not to be forgotten. The physical training program has be.en revised. The men may now take their daily exercises on the line at 10:00 a m or at 4:00 p m at tne squadron area. While we're on the subject of exercises, the Armament shop wants everybody to know that they defeated the Radio shop 12 to 1 Saturday at softball. The Radio department claims Armament used 26 men on its team while the Armorers say the Communication men cheate d by having the umpire on their side. Somebody isn't telling the truth! W e're sorry to hear that Cpl. Lcpema n of Communications has transferred to detached service. We hope he comes back to the 302nd as soon as he' s through with his present work.
