ADMIRABLE CO )DUCT OF THZ ;BRS
OF THE COMPANY DURING T IE RICE
The Com1Lany Coriander feels that thie men of the Company showed an excellent courage and good morale during and after the hurricane's visit tcamp last week. All trie valiantly to hold on to their tents and to keep property fr m being damaged. Special credit must be given to Foster, Robertson, and Barnes for their worthy and successful efforts toward saving the canteen, and to Fred England, chroderKohole Sharbutt. Wiggins, and Burrs for their efforts, squally as valiant. WIiggins, and Buri fo tu
on tAhe orderly tent. This. was spciliy orthy of mention because of the overhanging trees that threatened to ash on these men's heads, and ahich they ctualy did mercifully missing the fighting men by a -ew feet. rgle and his cooks are to be complimented on their preparation of hot coffee and sandwiches after the storm, which.Mid ruch to restore the good cheer of the Com-any.
Lt. Col. Davis has expressed by letter his approoiation of the good morale and level-headed action S of the men and states that he feels that they showed up el under stress.
GETTING STRAIGHT ON A FF POINTS
It is the desire of the company commander to express to members of the comany the facts i.n the case of this business of going home and then writing back for a discharge. .n honorable discharge cannot be given in this mannr. Vhen a member goes hone-n leave and gets a j ob he should then returnto camep, receive his nediceal examination, turn in his property, and go through all necessary procedure. If he leaves with the expectation of getting a job, ho.should get examined before going, settle.up his accounIts, sign t he necessary papers, and when he reaches home and gets the job, he holdud send back the necessary -proof of it--either in the form of a letter from the person hiring him or a request for discharge from his parents,
Some members of the company seem to have the idea that a seven-day vacation with pay is due there, every six months. In the CCC, no provision is -made for such a furlugi. An leave. except for the usual week-ond passes, will be granted. obly in ease of emergency.
