"I've Got a Better Idea Here It Is" (The soldier's own subject) Messages may be any length up to 200 wo1ds, and nth the exception of cus sing or obscene language, no holds bar red. This is the average yardbird's chance to tell the Axis big shots what he -thinks of them Not only will the most blasts at Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo be broadcast, but winners will receive free, a six-month subscription to the "YANK". :lames of an winners and some of the -;;inning messllges will be print ed in the Arrq Newspaper.

Soldiers, sailors and marines all over the world are urged to use this opportunity to tell the Axis what Unc le Sam's men are thinking these days.

WERE YOU ,ROBBED? In this generation of skepticism and cynicism it became a fashion to debunk the great personalities of Many men imagined themselves to be of superior intelligence if they dragged someone down off the pedestal where previous generations had placed them. They, in their childish way, considered themselves better informed than the contempo raries---the m e n and women who witnessed the greatness of venerated persons. And so books come out debunkin g George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin and many other men of outstanding achievements. If this trend continues, you can be certain that some day Gener a l MacArthur's will be debunked. The personality of Christ was not left untouched by these arrogant minds They could not deny the nobility of His Teachings, because they are recorded; so they denied His Divinity, and thereby denied Him authority to command. They denied Christ the Divine authority to define the meaning of, and authority to command all men to keep justice, honesty, decenc y, regard for the rights of others, etc. in all human relationships. The result of this is a in human relations. And now the Nazis, the Japs and their like the authority to define those vital human relationships as it suits them best, and Qillillggg to accept them.

Firat he turns on the lights in each room, waits about ten minutes until everyone ia utt8rly confused. and then blows the lst whis tle. By this time everybody is so wideawake, it's a simple matter to get them all out for roll call. We welcome the boys who have just join ed the squadron. You fellows have become a part of a darn good outfit, and it will be up to you to carry on the swell record the b oys before you have made. A few of the squadrons on the field are forming pool, ping-pong, chess and basket ball te'ams. It would b e a swell idea if we followe d suit. If we could work up some sort of a league this winter. for these variou1 sports, it would be a lot of run. There are many fellows inter ested in participating in these games and it they will hand in their names to me, I will try and get these various teams organized. Eith e r hand them in to the orderly room on p aper, naming the sport you are interested or give them to me in person. As soon as all the names are in, we wi l l conduct a tournament amongst ourselves to find out the best men in each sport. These men will make up the back bone of the teams which will represent the "BrO'Imi ea in outside competition. If there are too many for one sport. we will probably form "A" and "B" teams. We want as many men in the squadron on these teams as possible. We received a letter from Pfo. Joe Gl ick:man now at Ft. He' a a member of the 716th there.
