under-developed, and didn't know how to t-t4b sane blood flowing ijn our veins as tha, takc a nants part in carrying ut orders: of the average Anorican Citizen.
These feollo.s have gained experience that cannot prove other than valuable : to them in work in civil life lator, Practically all ::ho were weakling went : home real non at the end of their onlisti
Then there ,7ere those who wanted
to acquire more production than they had. In very CC C.np there is an Educa.tion-: al department, whoso business it is to try to give very enrollo any instruction in any subject that the nan may dosire, The non not only have the chance to learn the'" 5 R's"(roading, writing, arithnometic), but they can got instruction in many vocational subjects.
Then, for the reasons nancmed above, an Enrolloots betterment is three-fold: financial improvement, physical inprovecnt, andc educati-nal improvement.
The above statements being true, does it :mean that an enrollee lowers I himself when he joins the 0.0.0.? Does it .an that ho has stcppod from one Social Clas3 to a lower one? Some boys : gain the idea that those questions aro to be answered with a yo1s". They dov-: olop a dislike for the oC.C.C., when tho: begin to believe this. They lose intorost in everything portaining to COO life and .tcrk. But the only true aonswox to those two questions is, no.

So lot us of the 00CC0 be careful of our behavior in town, or any place whoro wo are before the Public, for the Public (Old John Public), sees only our worst. Lot us mako them recognize and remember our rood points and showv: the Public that we too want, and deormand, to bo respected.

A Word from The First SergoantFollows, I am rounding out fiftooen months in this Ooapaony. I havo soon tho boys come and go. We have had a lot of good boys and some that wore not so hot. I do not believe there is anyother Co. that has as gpod a lot of boys as Company 1420, COO, han. I have boon 1st Sgt. since July 6, this year, and I think havo given every one a square Odeal the boat I know how. Thore is one thing that I am going to do, and that is to treat overy
one just alike. You now boys just ask the old ones-they .kneow.
You boys listen to Ab. and you wont go wrong, but if y6u do not, it is just too bad. I am not going to ask any of you to do anything that I would not do myself. AWOLs (being absent without leave) and Drukks are two things that Company 1420, CCoo, will not allow-So Watch Your Stop.

God never created a thing more beautiful Than a forest of statloy pine, Majostically swaying,they overlook the (earthy

The beauty is inspiring To one that stands admiring For serenity and quietnooess it holds. 'Tis the Master's best; It stands the artists tootMuch Holy and Sacred is in itts folds.
But in contrast we have boro-wvith The same Forest swept by fire. Black stumps standing, burnt charred logs
A most damnable funeral pyre. The awful scone, far from serene Gives forth an acrid breath. Beauty reduced to waste By flames travelling in haste Loft nought but desolation and doath.
