Pa.ge4 BILL WOJLD PERMIT PA'M:NTS THREE AHEAD M:asure Would Provide Aid For h Selected for Overseas Duty If you are lucky enough to be s elected for overseas duty, you'll have no finance troubles upon embarking because o f a bill recently approved by the Senate Affairs ConTnittee in Washington. The bill would permit the War and Navy Departments to pay salaries up to three i n advance to men ordered to duty outside the United States. Ljkewise travel expenses could be paid as much as a year in advance. The War Department says that it is its intention, if the bill is passed, to authorize the advance payment of pay rolls for the current month for all units when the embarkations of such units occur during the l atter part of the month, and that in cases where it is anticipated that it will be difficult to pay men regularly at their overseas stations, they might be paid even further ahead. Previously, it has been the to pay men about to be sent abroad that part of their month's salary which has been served, but this procedure has been unhandy for bookkeeping. Another bill introduced in House would credit overseas duty as doubletime when figuring longevity pay Tyndall's Navy The QM Boat Company -popu1 arly known as Tyndall s Navy, is rapidly growing up under the supervision of the Harbor Boat Officer, Captain Herman Gundlach, Jr. From a couple of tents pitc:l'r e d on the shore of the near the salvage dump, the company has expanded till it n o w boasts a dozen boats ranging from 18 to 100 feet in l ength and excellent docking and boathouse facilities situ ated near the west gate. Chatter: The sailing soldiers of this outfit are hard at work putting our new 104 foot uatrol boat in shape The {dyllic location of our barracks seems to arouse do mestic inclinations in our group because no less than five of the 27 GI 's h e r e are sweating out furloughs that will see them embark on the stormy oceans of matrimony. 2ver since this outfit began taking part in the weekly com petitive inspections we have been gigged for not having a d_ay And on two occasions this discrepancy has cost us the coveted pennant. In spite of the small nunber of men in our outfit and the spacious and well equipped barracks, plans are being formulated for a day ro001. When the plans becane a reality we will give any outfit a run for its money. -Cpl. flavin The ole Yardbi rd has had a purty ruff time this weak.

(Polar Bear) Schreiber was the only Guardian who brought back his wife from up Nawth. The rest of the newly weds left their spouses home.

The boys looked mighty good, and the team shows promise of develooing into a winner. Truchan pitched a mean curve to shut out the heavy hitters. Foster pounded into the bleachers (or where the bleachers would be if there were any.) Foley, Dolan anr Beznosks were in excellent form on the bases, with Edwards, Clamp, Luoica, Eisenstat and Durant effectively covering the outfield positions. It has come to our attention that Sgts. Pfoltner, Gay and Meserve have been giving lessons in the fine art of roller skating. The fact that they are taking rneals from the pf_ would indicnte that their technique involves a good deal of sitting down. The latest fad (a beauty t rea tmen t known as The Blush of Innocence, or, How to appear perpetually embarrassed) has many enthusiastic followers in this outfit. What they say: 'You too can a beautiful set of blisters' (S/Sgt. Wadsworth); 'Cooked, fried, baked or stewed, there's nothing like it' (T/Sgt.
