I j Boy, ,,ees, you should hr,ve been here Easter Sun-
j day for the Ea.ster parade. All the girls and Vv’omen bro3S?^^/8»^^
omed out in new outfits,'crovined'-'.vith things they called hats. There
v^ere variations in sL?;es, shapes, and styles. Some favored pickle
dishes, pancakes, mushrooms turned upside dovm and some just looked
like objects that you would be afraid to stop on if the;/ were lying
in .your Pcith, All in all, everyone looked real pretty though and ‘
had a real nice Easter,--
Things have been-kiiida’ lonesome around here cause there haven^t been many of
you- boyf5 at home'this past month. Lib got Glenn’s A.P.O, number, and she, has been lost
sires.-tliat v»/eekly visit from Camp Mackall is over. But for someone, it isn’t going to
be as'lonesome cause V7ilbur Boyles has bought iiim a new car. Reckon us old maids
v/ill 6"'-fc?r;Tate a ride'in it???? Prospects looked better this past week-end though
GV.US0 Bill SoutKArd^ and-Charles Cloninger, two real fiice lo6king soldiers, v/ere
•uiai:.uuvoring abound 'in t'Kis section* IVliat we -aro trying to do right now is figure out
vaiich one of the Ward twins has‘that bunch of daises in his hair and why???
■■ The mjile' situati&n is 3?eally'pathetic around here and v;hen Frances Cordell rated
t.v;o boy-friends last •Sunday Mght, ‘she thought she• wa6 doing all right, but things
didn’t turtt out hot "after-all. Bill Stamey, the lucky one, had car trouble and
obey b6th 'ha;d to'get'out and "hoofit into tcwn from Cobby Hornes home, which is on
the Polkville highway, ' We know'her corns and bunions were giving her fits cause she
had on her Suhdtiy best shoesV' 'Ifeckori B.iU; will be the lucky guy again?.????
Lst'US' tell you something; , Mrs,- Grady,Rollins was showing'us a picture of her
son, Henry, that v/ould knock us for a _ioofi, ‘ Shie says he. will get his wings in May
and that he is going to be here;- That' is one time that'"we v;ant to stick close to
Jjawndale, -If he looks like hife picture-^ he'is better looking than any movie star we
have ever'seen, . ‘
.■ Boys, you- sure missed a treafe’^-by not'being jiere. to'see Mildred Eaker breeze in
lvionday:.morning, . She really is' one. more s^vell-lboking Marine, Another tali', good-
looking, somebody who has beeh> here recently was 2nd. Lt,, "C'arty" Hart. However, we
didn’t get to see much of him. We have been wondering why, but it is rumored around
-that. Louise.-Clay monopolized time, Wc'areh’t on speaking terms with Mr, Hart
since Carty left cause he didn|t br:mg him around and introduce him* to us, and mostly
because he didn’t invite us^ to-dinner-th^.t ni^t.
Charlie Forney went away from the•office looking like a rather presentable young
man about a month ago, but he came back to/.vork Last week looking like Great Grand
father’s picture with a mustache or he swailo^ved a Fuller Brush and left part of it
on the outside,,,we haven’t decided which. Please, please^ boys, don’t grow one while
5^ou are away cause we dpn’t lilce our‘kisses straine'd',' ' .
Lt, General‘Sorneirvc 11 j' ‘a”fi^ting man, has given these fitting
; ' words to'the-public, in'the hope they will arouse you and me,
all of us on the ."Sfc'cond Line" to greater effort .and sacrificp.
