WASHINGTON To the GI who
married several wives in a South
Pacific isle and wanted to bring
them back while he went to col
lege in hopes of collecting $15 a
month each for them under the
"GI Bill of Rights" the answer is
The soldier said he believed he
acquired the wives legally, because
it "was according to native cus
tom." "It's the way they do business
in this tribe," he wrote. "The
chief wanted fishhooks. I had fish
hooks. He had too many women.
I didn't. So we made a deal.
"Some Indians in the United
States can have more than one
wife, so why can't I?"
The Veterans Administration ex
plained that some Indian soldiers
do have more than one wife, but
benefits are paid to only one. Some
Indian tribes recognize the right of
man to have more than one wife.

ARMY TO START SENDING
WAR BRIDES TO V. S.
PARIS The Army will start
sending brides of American sol

month, European Theater Service
Forces Headquarters said recently.
No quota has been set, but the
plans, said the Army, will not in
terfere with returning troops.
(At the War Department in
Washington a spokesman for the
Army Transportation Corps said
"considerable thought" had been
given to the problem of bringing
war brides to this country from
overseas, but no definite program
had yet been worked out).

Harry Lauder, the retired come
dian, has been very active in good
works for the troops in training near
his beautiful estate in Scotland.
Since the war began, his only ex
lursion outside Scotland was a visit
to an RAF station in northern Eng
land at the special Invitation of
Winston Churchill, who was on hand
to welcome him and show him
around the flying field, where nearly
a thousand cadets were in training.
They traveled all around the cir
cumference of the big airdrome,
stopping now and then to observe
groups of youngsters at work.
"Say," said Harry Lauder, final
ly, "how is it that you have so many
Scotchmen among your pilots down
Winston grinned and replied in his
most impressive voice, "Well, Harry,
since the Scotch have learned that
every cloud has a silver lining, we
just can't keep them out!"

Lewis Gibson S 2-c
Missing Since 1942
Lewis Gibson, Seaman second
class, son of Mr. and Mrs. William
McKinley Gibson of Canton, who
was reported missing in action on
March 1, 1942, is now reported by
James Forrestal, secetary of the
navy, to have lost his life on that
date, according to information re
ceived by his parents.
The letter of Secretary Forrestal
to Mr. and Mrs. Gibson read in
part as follows:
"On Feb. 27, 1942, the Langley,
while en route to Tjilatjab, Java,
from Freemantle, Australia, was
bombed by enemy planes when
about 74 miles south of Tjilatjab.
"Survivors of the Langley were
picked up and taken aboard two
of the escort vessels. On the early
morning of Marh 1, 1942, the sur
vivors of the Langley, including the
wounded, were transferred to the
USS Pecos which was headed for
Freemantle, Australia. Later that
same day, carrier based enemy dive
bombers attacked and sank the
Pecos. The USS Whipple inter
cepted the distress signal from the
Pecos and arrived at the scene of
the disaster where it proceeded to
pick up more than 200 survivors.
While this rescue was in prqgress,
a submarine detected in the im-
mediatc vicinity, was attacked by
the Whipple with depth charges.
"Although the outcome of the
attack was not known, the Whipple
continued to search the area and
pick up scattered survivors before
leaving for Freemantle, Australia.
It is reported that your son was
not among the survivors rescued
by the Whipple, and no additional
information concerning him has
been received by the navy depart
ment. "In view of the length of time
that has now elapsed since your
son was officially determined to be
missing in action, because of the
.strong probability that he lost his
life in the bombing and sinking of
the USS Langley or the USS Pe
cos, and in view of the fact that
his name has not appeared on any
lists or reports of personnel lib
erated from Japanese prisoner of
war camps, I am reluctantly forced
to the conclusion that he is de
ceased. In compliance with sec
tion 5 of public law 490, 77th con
gress, as amended, the death of
your son is for the purpose of
termination of pay and allowances,
settlement of accounts and pay
ment of death gratuities, presumed
to have occurred on December 15,
"I know what little solace the
formal and written word can be to
help meet the burden of your loss,
but in sptie of that knowledge, I
cannot refrain from saying very
simply, that I am sorry. It is hoped
that you may find comfort in the
thought that your son gave his life
for his country, upholding the high
est traditions of the navy."
Young Gibson entered the navy
in June, 1937, and served aboard
the Enterprise and the Langley
during his entire foreign service
career. Four other sons of Mr. and
Mrs. Gibson also served in the
armed forces. G. M. Gibson with
the army, and Hobert, Hubert and
William M. Gibson serviflg in the
navy. Two of these sons have re
ceived their honorable discharges,
while two others still remain in
the naval service.
