July 17, 1943 NEW EQUIPMENT TO BE INSTALLED IN MESS HALLS Capt. A.G. Casey, post mess officer, recently returned from a tour of several uir bases in the Southeast area. The chief purpose,of the trip was to ob serve the methods being used by other fields to overcome the all illllortant problem of food supply. In c011100nting on the outlook of meat supply for this field, Capt. Casey stated that wThe quantity of beef available in this locality will be increased, but I believe that the supply of poultry will continue to be non-existent. w As far as fruit and -,egetables are concerned, the Capt. stressed the fact that the supply made available by Capt. Brunner and. his staff far exceeded the origiml expectations and that with favorable climatic conditions, an even greater quantity can be e:q:ec ted from the garden units on the field. In addition to a successful solution of t.h food supply pro blem, the Mess Office is also forward to the arrival of new equipment which will rae1u.auu TilE TYND.AL:J:, T ARGF:I' HERE} S HAP OF S I d'l L Y TO HELP YOU FOL L Otl tiAR IE tiS SICILY 0 \ ... ., .. ,ts 0 l'i Here's a map of Sicily, showing cities, to help you the c..,aign there.

Well, the Army rejected him because of defective hearing. He suffered a brain concussion in a game against the Chicago Bears last October, and impaired the hearing of his left ear. W ith rrost of the pro stars now in uni form, Tuffy will be a handy man for the Giants when the opening kickoff takes place a few months hence. * Another baseball immortal has apparently reached the end of the road. Vernon 'Lefty' Gomez, who won six world series games without a defeat for the New York Yankees probably has hurled his last major league 2ame. The colorful Gomez was given his outright release by the Washington Senators last week. Previous to his tryout with the Senators, he had been with the Boston Braves and Phillies, this year, but failed to make the grade.

In a recent statement, OWDer Bill Cox gave the reasons why he felt the Phil lies had made a good trade, and one of the points he cited was a certain weakness Li twhiler had at the plate. It seems as if some of the other clubs have n't learned it yet. * Baseball's 'jinxed' uniform has finally been retired. It was originally worn by Pitcher Monty Strattonof the Chicago White Sox. He lost a leg in a hunting accident. The Sox sent the uni form fo their Longview, Texas, farm team. Th e pitcher who donned the suit broke his leg in the opening game. The uniform was then inherited by the minor league club's shortstop. His batting average slumped from .300 to 110. It was then passed on to pitcher w ho proceeded to lose five straight games. The club ordered the put out of circulation. USO BENEFIT GOLF TOURNEY TO BE HELD AUG.
