A MARINE TELLS YOU "Tell it to the Marines"---that derisive saying is being turned aro u nd and a Marine is telling you, soldier. Private Thomas Sudden, U.S. Marine Corps, in a letter to a San Diego paper, comments, "The man w h o is too dumb to give a thought to God is too dumb to be a good soldier." To those who say that "men without religi o n make the best soldiers", Private Sudden retorts .vi th an irreverent "Phooey' l They advance as the reason f o r their opinion that "irreligious men pack a 'don't care' spirit which turna out to be a valuable asset under fire. "On the contr ary", the Marine exclaims, "that attitude has more of the sneak-earmarks of the "Rising Sun" than it does of the glorious traditions of "The Star Spangled Banner." I go into battle I'd rather be alongside a buddy who has more fear of God and less of men and bu llets. The man w ho is too dumb to give a tho u g h t to God is too dumb to be a g ood soldier. At l e a st, the American kind of soldier." Private Sudden goes on to tell of those h e r oes of World War I who wer e not afraid, either of the enemy of afraid to be Christians. They fought gloriously, giving up or risking their lives at every moment. We need not remind you further of their deeds. The pages of history are alive withthem---of Joyce Kilmer and Father Duffy of the '!Fighting 69th", o f Sergeant York---brave, fearless before danger, but humble before God. "OUR NATION' S PRAYER" by Reve r en d Francis c. Young "Oh, Lord, a sacred peace we craves Fo r this, with all our leaders brave we pray that Thy Almighty Hand will guard and guide our wondrous land. W e 'll melt with love the swords of men to make of them the noblest pen. With this, Dear God, our hope and aid, let us enshrine Old Glory's fame. For us our Fathers died by sword, and loved one's spent their lives, Oh Lord Give us unselfish hearts like theirs to prove our worth as loyal heirs. Direct our thoughts to holy deeds, let love abide among the creeds. Pray, keep us in Thy watchful c are. We seek, dear Lord T hy help in prayer.

Most of you are well acquainted with the fact thai.. thh is quite a lengthy picture-but have no fear, fellas, you c an leave the pillows on your cots for this performance-Captain Wiseman has promised free midnite shows to all ranks above Master Sergeant and Colonel if the Post Theatre doesn't have new comfortable seats installed by Thursday. The Aircraft Recognition staff of the department of training still ne ed the services of model plane builders. It's an ideal set-up for any soldier who built model planes as a hobby. Here he has all the equipment furnished and is using his ho bby to aid the nation's War effort. And while on the subject of improvements, we've been keeping mum on the activity bt the old cafeteria, but the hns come now and all can be told. Supply sergeants will no longer accept your gripes about the dry cleaning job on your clothes. The "middle man" has finally been eliminatedl From now on your dry cleaning gripes will be taken directly to those who clean your clothes. We suspect that there are hundreds of us on the field who have been waiting for just such an opportunity, and it is rumored that the new dry cleaning plant which opens Monday has been constructed for those two reasons-to give us quicker and better service, and to handle our complaints. We thought we might be able to get away without mentioning anything about the transfer of officer insignias from the shoulder to the collar, but I guess we aren't. The whole affair ha s been shrouded in mystery, and we're still not convinced that someone in Washing-ton isn't playing a practical joke. Even the circumstances under which the transfer was initiated on this post is cause for wonderment. We have it on good authority that Captain Thomas Howell, the Pos t Adjutant, walked into Colonel Maxwell's office on e morning and was greeted with a few "choice words about being "out of uniform"&tter that, if you were an officer, it was only a question of how soon you met Captain Howell before you t oo, wore your insignia on your collar. Speak ing for the enlisted men, it ha s only made us more conscious of the starch content of an officer's collar.


IT HAPPENED RUGGED If yo u ever have been inclined to pity the soldier who has to hik e long stretches, you can save your sympathy. For these men in khaki can take it. A fiel d artillery outfit at a camp in the Northeast went on a fourteen mile hike, ran the course, practiced throwing hand grenades, had bayonet practice,went swimming, practiced Ju-Jitsu, cleaned rifles and stood rifle inspection, all in one day. That night Private Louis Longval requested a The energetic soldier walked six mil e s to a nearqy town, spent the evening dancing and walked six miles back to camp. What a manl RECORD Camp Callan, California, boasts the most co n tented soldier in the As p roof they offer his record. This month Serg eant Graham w. Greer requested and received his first furlough since 1928 1 WIN OR LOSE The men at Scott Field, Illinois, are so to win the big fight they hav e on their hands that the spirit o f fight-to-the-finish carries over even into their inter-squadron athletics. In one of the weekly box ing bouts, Privates Charles Shaffer and Ted Cuellar fought two rounds on eve n terms. Each one answered the third with the idea of a quiek KO in mind. They both let loose with simultaneous haymakers and sent each other sprawling. They each scored a knockout. But the question remainsa "Who wont" BIG HELP At Camp Shelby, Mississippi, the kitchen police keep the mess hall ring ing with like "Let me peel the potat oes, Sarge" and "Oh, I'll see that t he dishes are washed." No, it is no t a dream. But there u a reason. The Quartermaster Detachment at Shelby has just acquired an electric potato peeler and an electric dishwasher. It's a K.P.'s picture of heavenl IN THE ARMY SJIOOTH AS GLASS Armored Division officers at Fort Benning, Georgia, found a new way to keep things running smoothly. They offered a 24-hour pass for the highest efficiency in care and maintenance or vehicles. And the soldiers really went to town. The inspection officer reports that in one case the engine purred so quietly he had t6"11tt the hood to make sure it was running& NAMESAKE When the movie star, Carole Landis, visited Fort Bliss, Texas, she took the camp by storm. On a tour o f the camp Kin Landis saw a carry ing his newly acquired pet a puppy not yet named. The star was delighted with the little dog and stopped to admire it. is that adorable little things n ame?" she asked. The sergeant hadn t been in the Army six months for nothing. He gave Miss Landis his most diplomatic emile and replied, "Carole, of VIGILANCE Under cover of darkness on a recent night watch, an officer at Camp Barkeley, Texas, decided to test the re action of the guard. He surprised him from the rear and made a pass a t the guard's rifle. A split second later, the officer had his shoulder blades against the side of the sentry bo x and the point of a detached bayonet uncom fortably pressed to his mid s ection. It was a breath-taking experience. But now that officer knows he is well protectedl NARY A WRIN!LE We are all ware that many sqldiers wea r their uniforms like a million dollars. But there is one fighting man at Fort Meade, Maryland, who really carries this idea to an extreme. Cor poral Gene Kelner saw this ce r tain soldier call for his laundry. The Corporal couldn't believe his eyes. The uniform the soldier received was his blue denims. He had just had his fatigues cleanedl

NINE BOUTS AND MUSIC BY TYNDALL FIELD BAND DRAWS LARGE CROWD OF BOXING FANS Tyndall's boxing enthusiasts finally got a break last Thursday when an apparent lack of Florida's liquid sunshine permitted the nine scheduled boxing bouts to be completed.
