It' you see an enlisted man who
pleases everybody, there will be a
glass plate over his face, and he won't
be standing up either.

We admit that the hair on the cook’s
head is beautiful, but we forget all

One of the greatest sights on earth
is that of a woman talking SENSE,

.When Gene Menga, the tonsorial ar
tist of barracks six is not at work
with clippers or razor he is employed
in perpetrating practical jokes. Ser
geant Arthur Rankin, top sergeant of
the Base Hospital No. 54 unit, is one
of the victims of Gene’s latest effort.
“Some chicken,” ejaculated Gene.
“Wot you mean, some chicken?”
tumbled the sergeant.
“The two classy dames that was
just here lookin’ for you. That Ethel
was some real bird.”
“Lookin’ for me? You sure?’’ tugged
Sergeant Rankin at the line Eugene
had tossed in his direction.
“1 reckon I’m sure. Didn’t I talk to
them? Didn’t they ask for you? Didn’t
I tell them I supposed you was out
drillin’ the company? They just left a
minute -ago. They have gone on over
to Liberty Park now.”
There are many sponsors for the ac
count that our barber relates of how
the sergeant hurried away towards
Liberty Park and how hot the day
was and how tired Sergeant Rankin
was when he returned.
Among the new literary works is not
be found the letter that Sergeant Cos

books, suggested by the sergeant in
last week’s Cadueeus, the latest song
is advised “Some One Else May Be
There When I’m Gone.”

Our Laskey is a funny chap.
We call his “buttierfly”
He’s always flitting here and there
To foliow him you’d die
But boy, with K. P.’s he’s a bear,
He sure has them on the run
You’d think he was running down a
Wte also have just “fatty”
Though Lennex is his name
Too bad he’s in the army
■Wlien he could grab- off movie fame
For he’s got Arbuckle beat a mile
But even at that he’s always ready
To greet you with a smile.'
I’m sure you all know Wright
The boy that never looks for fight
But didn’t he get mad the other day
When some one put shoes in his sleep
He started to stir up an awful fuss
Till we quieted him down
And put a smile on his much
We are all trying to do our best
To please you one and all
And if at times the guards not right
Kindly omit the. call.
Work of lining the drains, along the
ward rows, with cement is requiring
the energies of a detail of laborers
under Sergeant Yates. A part of the
small drains have already been ce
mented and proved their worth at the
time of the heavy rainfall on Monday.
The newly-installed concrete drain
along the “A” row allowed the water
to run away without a washout of any
of its contributing streamlets.

cases several yards of the canal was
