Chicago, (CNS)-It was April Fool' s Day and the crowd that gathered about a suspicious-looking package on the sidewalk in front of a Loop restaurant just stood there and chuckled, wait ing for a sucker to come along. Finally one simple-looking pass erby picked up the package and opened it. It contained two large steaks, presumably dropped from a delivery truck serving the res taurant. Nobody said "April Fool." The dark assault cloak shroua ing the bright figure or invasion had its folds adjusted again this week when His Majesty's Governm ent brought under official restraint the diplomatic business or all nations except Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States. under the edict neutral diplomats may not leave the country and all diplomatic communica tions entering or leaving the British Isles are henceforth subject to the most rigid censorship. This shelving by Britain of diplomatic immunity of neutrals is without precedent, recalling Britain's unswerving resolve to insure that there will always be an England. Thumbing their plane noses at Japan's Co-Prosperity sphere of influence, Army Liberators on Sunday returned to'their dawn pastime of riddling the myth of impregnability once surrounding the Carolines.

Despite the increasing shortage or wood and other essential materials, these days cabinet-makers of Italy are as active as grandfather's clock with more tics than tacks. Last Monday, Italy's number one cabinet-maker, Marshal Badoglio who tn some respects rivals the famed Dr. Caligari, announced the resignation or his ministers and began the assembling or a new set. The new cabinet will include one representative from each or the s i x-ply political parties and is expected to rein force the sagging 2X4 politics or the present installation. There is no room in the new cabinet ror the tiny figure or Victor Emmanuel and, it is to be hoped, none ror improvement, either. Bal ak 1 ava, scene of the famous charge of the gallant 600 light English cavalry, immortalized in Tennyson's poem, lives again in the news as a victory-flushed Red Army storming along the southern approaches to Sevastopol nears the 'valley of death' where 'cannon to the right of them, cannon to the left of them, volleyed and thundered.' Balaklava lies 13 versts to the southeast of Sevastopol, approximately eight miles, and is the last town of any consequence that a traveler journey ing northward along the coast in the Crimea would encounter before reaching Sevastopol.

It is generally understood, I believe, that there are t'lll:> prin cipal reasons 'llhy a soldier will go to town and let loose when he might not have done such when he was a civilian. One of these reasons is that, with the putting on of a uniform which makes him look exactly like his brothers, he feels as though he has lost his identity, and that his brothers in unifonn will share in any disgrace that he migpt bring upon lwnself. The other is that, in the Army he is constantly under strict and is unable to argue with his boss. He wants to blow off steam and, generally speaking, he can't do that within the confines of an Army post. His Saturday night letting down of the bars is a safety valve which "enables to the poor man to fur get the awfUl misery of his lot, to qnote a philosopher whose nBme I can't recall. 'Ihe Target's letter box has the same safety valve effect as the Saturday night excursion into the bright lights, but is considerably less harmful to the man Bnd to the reputation of the Army. It enables the writer--and, vicariously, the men who read the gripe letters--to blow off steam which otherwise might accmrulate to the detriment of work and morale. And ooce in a while the letter box may bring an i papers, Cpl. C. F. J, Dear Editor: They' re ha:Ving a big insurance drive in my scpadron, and to hear some of the guys in my outfit talk, you'd think that they were doing Uncle Sam a favor to take out a policy of National Service Life Insurance, In my estimation, it's just the opposite. Where else could we get $10,000 coverage on our lives fb r such a low price as the GI policy offers? And besides, the way I look at 'it, we're all in this army together and the mon,ey we pay into insurance is being chipped into a big -pot to pay off the policies of the less fortunate Gis who lose their lives in this war. Uncle Sam has got to get the money from some place, tha.t1 s a cinch. I think we owe it to the fellows overseas to take the full $10,000 policy bee ruse the more money we chip in over here the 1 ower we can keep the rates for the fellows over there, md that's my answer to guys who say they are going to wait until they get overseas before they take out the full $10,000. I say it's best to take it out now and help the guys who are already over there. Besides, if' anything happens to me bef'ore I get across, I want my f'olks to get $10,000 and nothing less. I think I'm worth at least that DJ.Ich, whether any body else does. or not! Pvt. H. E. B. or rrogs. our final animal tale concerns a singing dog.

Capt. Jack Dangler, who arrived here as an A / C before the field was ready for occupation, and has been with the Dept. of Training -ever since, left us tbr Ft. Myers and points overseas.

PERSONS COMMENDS GUARDHOUSE CLERK FOR EFFICIENCY Sgt. Joseph wawrzon, police and prisons clerk at the Tyndall guardhouse, was recently 00l111end ed by Col. John w. Persons for his administrative efficiency in devising a new tbnu llhich elimin ated six others. Wawrwn, a mem ber of the Guard SIJ.ladron, is a native of Chicago, ill. Col.

Wawrzon is a graciuate of the AAF clerical school at Fbrt l.IJgan and was assigned to Tyndall in March, 1942.

THE POST GYM GETS A BREATHER The approach of wann weather has forced the big, bam-like building on Mississippi Avenue into temporary idleness. For, when the potent florida sun is through casting its rays in alternate degrees of wamth and has had enough fun watching hapless Gls change fr0111 thin khaki shirts on one day to o.n. s and a field jacket the next, it can really make things hot. And when ole Sol starts turning on the steam, unifonns go into moth balls. The new T/F gym won't be put away in moth balls-it'll still be open to occasional handball players and its balcony will still cater to the boxing clientele, and even the huge court will be there, available to the "hungry" cagers who dirln' t get their fill ruring the regular senring. However, the Tyndall sports arena can enjoy its breathing spell, content in the knowledge that o n its hardwood f'loor, soldiers stationed here during the past six months had their first opportunity in the field's three year history to par ticipate in the nation's most popular sport, basketball.

Marotta .TRE BEIER HOW ABOUT THAT?\ Well, anyway, one day just a little while ago there was a piece in the papers all about how that hard riding torero, Senor Rogers Hornsby was the hottest tamale in the M exican League where h e was engaged in the profession of running the Vera Cruz baseball team. It seems that Rog rubbered up to the plate that day to assay a pinch hitting role and golfed a cripple over the centerfield wall and into the tropical reaches beyond to win a tight one for his side. Well sir, the f ans and aficionados from Vera Cruz all fired their revolvers into the air and the n they carried the Rajah from the field on their shoulders, shouting "Bravo!" and "Ole!" withaL Aft-er running all the way around the bases, the 48-year-old Rog felt grateful, forsooth, for the lift. From this dispatch you judged that Hornsby was all set for a lifetime of ease south of the border, down Vera Cruz way. But a couple of days later there was another piece in the papers about Rog, this time from St. Louis, where he was holding down an armchair in the shade of a potte d palm at the Hotel Coronado. Seems he grew tired of a ll that Mexican idolatry, quit his $10,-000-a-year job and is now scouting around for a major leagu e berth. Say, how do you figure a bozo like that? Thornton Lee won 22 games for the White Sox in 1941 but the next year he came up with a sore arm and won only two. Last year his arm was still sore and he won exactly five more. But during the off-season he had his throat slit and now he feels fine once again. Lee explains that a taut tendon in his neck was the cause of all his trouble. The tendon was removed in an operation and now he says his arm feels as porous as a first nose. If Le<' stages a comeback this summe r lot of dead-armed pitchers will probablv cut their throats from E>ar to ear next October. When Tom Killife r was a kid his old man, Red Killifer, taught him how to pitch. Red was a good teacher, too, having pitched in the majors himself, coached the St. Louis Cardinals and managed several Pacific Coast League teams. But somehow Tom never learned how to control his fast one. It always broke early and sailed neck-high-or higherover the plate. Back in 1937 Tom went to the mound one day when Stanford University was playing Waseda University of Tokyo. Tom bore down on the first pitch, his high, hard one. It broke too soon as usual and knocked the Jap batter cold. The next Jap stepped warily up to the dish and Killife r wound up, unleashed his fast one. and dusted him too. Today, hOwever Tom's control is pretty good. H e s a nava l lieutenant, flying a Corsair with the Skull and Crossbon es Squadron in t'he ;:;outh Pacific.
