A Fine Thanksgiving Dinner For CCC Boys
If Mae West was a member of Co. 453 would you accept her standing vitation to "Come up sometime"? Without a murmur, without a word, without a sound. Only we would sist on a sitting down invite. And we would trot right over to Co. 453 ianksjtvng Day. Gaze upon what Lieut. Sullivan and Mess Seargant omey have cooked up for the men for that holiday.
Here you are it's the Thanksgiving Dinner planned for Co. 453.

Creamed Peas Candied Yams Buttered Beets
Cranberry Sauce Lettuce salad
Celery Pickles Mayonnaise Dressing
Mince Meat Pie Pumrpkin Pit 'Fruit Cake
Plum Pudding Hot Rolls

rs, foresters,-enrolees and guests will be served. pounds of turkey will be needed. Hundreds of ake, and plum pudding and gallons of ice cream are the meal.

tests have been made, larger, one acre, plantings will be made of those trees and shrubs that show an inclination to become valuable trees in Florida and more extensive tests will be made.
Three arborcycles are being laid out and these will be the final test plots for the most irnportant and valuable species. The use of arborcycles is the newest development in arboretum practice. An arborcycle being a large circular plot of ground divided into numberous wedge-shaped segments, different species being planted on each segment. The plots, being wide at one end and narrowing to a point at the other permits the planting of trees at varying spacings without involving the use of a great area. This permits checking the behavious of the various trees in relation to their distance from each other. Gracefully winding drives around the arborcycles and other test plots will make individual planting readily accessible.
Those connected with the undertakift, hope that not only will this important project introduce many valuable and Irortant but little known trees to the South, but that many new uses for them will be found.

SAFETY
Did you ever witness a serious accident? Did you ever rush in and help an accident victim?. Did you ever hear an accident victim try to talk about the accident? An accident victim can't talk.
When he gets some of his senses back, he learns that those terrible pains are frombrokenl and splintered bones. When hqk sees the blood and realizes that if he lives he may be an invalid for life-HE CAN'T TALK.
When you pass on a blind curve, when you hit a slippery street, when you jack her up to sixty-five after a couple of shots of hooch, you're gambling against broken bones, blood, agony and perhaps death.

"Is my face red?" said the fire barrel. All the fire equipment in the camp broke out last week in a bright red rash. It is the most vivid hue of red ever splashed over fire equipment-in a CCC camp. In addition, the equipment was moved about to facilitate better fire control and in so doing are more in the limelight than ever before. It lends quite a touch of color to the camp.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving-Now why shouldn't we be thankful for everything we have every day? Come on! And let's be thankful today, tomorrow and every day.

We congratulate you pn your. spienndid victory. But when' you walk off the field after the game please remember you pass through the throng of fans who listen attentively to your comments on the game. Last Friday night as you walked off the field you made a lot of unfrienndly cracks about the Frostproof team-such as not wanting to shake hands with them, etc. When a game is over-bury the hatchetbe always kindly and sympathetic wjth with your opponents.

SEBRING, FLORIDA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 1937 NUMBER 7 CO. m MAY GET THREE NEW BUILDINGS 3 New Buildinf^ Recommended F 0 r Co. 4 5 3 THANKSGIVING In order that we may not forget, and in order that we may show our happiness and thankfulness for the things that have been done for us, this day has been set aside. Park News As Reported By Roy Barnes On Saturday November 13th Noble J. Wiley, Jr. Col. Inf. U. S. A. paid an official visit to Co. 453. After a careful inspection of the camp and a survey of camp buildings Col. Wiley recommended that the present recreation hall be abandoned and dismantled.The floor of the recreation hall fell in, several weeks ago and has been out of commission since that time The canteen was forced to move out of the recreation hall and take up new and temporary quarters in the recently completed wood shop building. According to a statement by Col. Wiley every effort will be made to replace the old recreation hall with a more modern building. Col. Wiley also recommended that a larger and more substantial school building be erected in the camp to supplant the present educational building which is too small to take care of the needs of this department. Also, an officers quarters building was recommended by Col. V^ley. At present 'officers are quartered in the same building with the Using Service personneL It is the usual custom in most camps to provide separate quarters for officers and foresters. With the addition of these three much needed buildings, the camp facilities will be increased, and will add greatly to comfort and welfare of the camp personel. LIEUT. SULLIVAN RELIEVES JR. BEFICER Lieut. Michael J. (Shake) Sullivan relieved Lieut. Vernon V. Wilson, .Jr., as Junior Officer of this Company November 11, 1937. Lieut. Sullivan was born May 22, 1910 at Columbus, Georgia, later moving to his present home at Chipley, Georgia. He attended school at Auburn, Alabama, a member of the class of ’32 and enrolled in Civil Engineering, later securing employment with the city of Columbus, Georgia. Lieut Sullivan on July 1, 1935 was employed in the District Supply Office, District “H”, CCC, in the rail transportation and civilian personnel office, holding this position until his transfer to this com-pany. Mrs. Sullivan and daughter. Patricia Elizabeth will make their home in Sebring around December 1. ODE TO THANKSGIVING When the last of the white meat has vanished. And there isn’t a drum stick left.

Hundreds of pounds of pie, fruit cake, and plum pudding and gallons of ice cream are needed to round out the meal. The National Park Service has started clearing the land and laying out the roads in Section Four which will be the arboretum section of the Florida Botanical Garden. Work is progressing rapidly with the large number of men now enrolled in company 453 and although completion is never attained in a living project such as an arboretum, tangible results will soon be seen. As now planned, the arboretum will be a great south Florida experimental station, serving landowners, farmers and garden lovers with constructive and practical assistance in determing successful species for this section of the Southland and methods of better nursery practice, land management, and forestry will be developed. The greater part of Section Four will be laid out in plots for experimental purposes, various spyecies being planted in varing soil conditions. The first plots for test willl be fifty square each and after preliminary plantings and various growth and adeptabilify — 1 tests have been made, larger, one acre, plantings will be made of those trees and shrubs that show an inclination to become valuable trees in Florida and more extenj sive tests will be made.

Neatness of self and of camp at all times. To improve oneself by promoting mental and physical growth. PERSONALITY Do you do these things ? Do you respect the rights and property of others? Do you refrain from hurting the other fellow’s feeling? Do you conceal unpleasant feelings? Do you overcome the temptation to give way to anger? Do you admit your mistakes and avoid alibis? Do you keep your grievances to yourself when tempted to recite them to others? Do you avoid making promises you cannot keep? Do you practice looking for the other fellow’s good qualities instead of their poor ones? Do you endeavor to develop an er^t, graceful carriage? Do you keep your clothes cleaned, brushed and pressed, and shoes polished? Do you go out of your way to cheer up a person in low spirits? Do you show special consideration for the helpless and infirm? Do you study your own mistakes to determine how they may be avoided? Do you sacrifice personal advantage when it stands in the way of the welfare of th group? Do you inform yourself before condeming? Other people are constantly passing judgement on you. If you do these things, then the other people’s judgement of you will be “He has a very strong Personality.’’ oOoSAFETY Did you ever witness a serious accident? Did you ever rush in and help an accident victim? Did you ever hear an accident victim try to talk about the accident? An accident victim can’t talk. When he gets some of his senses back, he learns that those terrible pains are from broken and splintered bones. When he sees the blood and realizes that if he lives he may be an invalid for life— HE CAN’T TALK. When you pass on a blind curve, when you hit a slippery street, when you jack her up to sixty-five after a couple of shots of hooch, you’re gambling against broken bones, blood, agony and perhaps death. Siftings With my nose to the grindstone. And my ear to the ground, I’ve been digging for news And here’s what I’ve found. With the coming of the cold weather the stoves have gone into use. This means a little more activity around the wood pile. We certainly appreciate the regular high school price granted to the CCC boys to the local football games. A goodly number attend the home games of the local school. The Canteen surely looks out of place. When the recreation hall floor caved in the Canteen had to look for a new home. An improvised counter was rigged up in the wood-shop and business has been going on as usual from there. The boys who are anxious to get into wood-working will just have to mark time until the new recreation hall arrives. The First-Aid Class is in full swing under the direction of Dr. Seron. This is a valuable and very instructive course and some day when you’re in an accident jam you will thank your lucky stars that you took the First Aid course. Green paint to the front of us — green paint to the rear of us — green paint everywhere. ’The whole camp is being completely gone over with green paint. Th paint job is nearly completed and the camp buildings look 100 per cent improved in appearance. The buildings are to be trimmed in white. Even the flog pole got its share of paint. The base of the pole has been dolled up in black. The kitchen always is on the upward trend. Almost every day a new piece of quipment arrived for the kitchen. If one saw the kitchen three months ago would hardly recognize it to-day. The wallv's about the camp area are being cribbed im with cratecores and the walks are being filled with fresh sawdust. This adds greatly to the general appearance of the camp. If you didn’t attend the religious program put on in the camp by the Salvation Army the other Thursday evening you missed a wonderful service. The base drummer with the Salvation Army Band made a great hit with those who attended. “Jack” the big black hunting dog is very much missed around the camp. He spent most of his time in the company street greeting all who passed with the most friendly of canine mannerisms. He was owned by Lieut. Wilson who took “Jack” along with him when he left. “Is my face red?” said the fire barrel. All the fire eauipment in the camp broke out last week in a bright red rash. It is the most vivid hue of red ever splashed over fire equipment in a CCC camp. In addition, the equipment was moved about to facilitate better fire control and in so doing are more in the limelight than ever before. It lends quite a touch of color to the camp. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving — Now why shouldn’t we be thankful for everything we have every day? Come on! And let’s be thankful today, tomorrow and every day. We will be out in mass at the Avon ParkSebring football game. Sebring High— -we are pulling for you. Here’s just a friendly tip to the Sebring High football team' We were out to your game last Friday with Frostproof. We got our money’s worth many times over. We congratulate you pn your splenndid victory. But when you walk off the field after the game please remember you pass through the throng of fans who listen attentively to your comments on the game. Last Friday night as you walked off the field you made a lot of unfrienndly cracks about the Frostproof team — such as not wanting to shake hands with them, etc. When a game is over — bury the hatchet— be always kindly and sympathetic with with your opponents. This for the best in sports. With my newsy notes Sorely depleted, I shall end my column And call it completed. Chat On — Chatter Box -John Bradley calls his girl “Hershey Bar”. He says “ She is so sweet and Nutty”. Mrs Kelly — You are all invited to the Salvation Army to-night. We are having a bean supper at 7:00 P. M. and a concert at 8:00 P. M. “Blackie” was oift walking with his gii'l and they capie across a cow and a calf rubbing noses. “Ah!” said “Blackies” — “That makes me want to do the same thing”. “Well go ahead”, said his girl, “the cow wont mind.” Lieut. Sullivan: “What’s the matter with this meat? “Red” Rannou: Nothing much. It got burnt; but I fixed that. I put unguentine on it right away. Punch: Your a sandwich dog — half bread, ed out. Bismark: How’s that? Punch: Your sandwich dog — half bred. Company Clerk Poynter to a rookie: WhO' is your nearest relative? Rookie: My uncle. He lives six miles away. Dixon: I dreamed last night that I had my arms full of bathing beauties: but I woke up with my arms full of goose pimples. A. G. Taylor: My girl has a knack of being interested in 4 or 5 boys at the sinie time. What shall I do? P. D. Rogers: Break her knack. LieuC Croker: Massey, this coffee tastes like mud. Massey: Well, it was ground 'this; morning. Passing Visitor: Whose statues are those out there Mister? Senior Leader Fletcher: Those are not statues. That’s enrolees “Yankee” Brown and “Jack” Lyons hard at work. r Senior Leader Fletcher: Be sure and take a bath before you go to the party tonight. Lovering: I don’t need a bath for that, they said it was going to be an informal party. Mrs. Kelly: “Nothing is impossible.” Danley: Did you ever try to carry a bull fiddle into a telephone booth? Philip Qrews: You have no choice. You will go with anybody. Gal Friend: You are right, or I wouldn’t have started going with you. Senior Leader Fletcher, a few days ago was carelessly leaning on a car talking to a couple of girls when one of the young ladies asked him to stick his head into the car. Very eager to oblige, Fletcher, did and was given a great big kiss. It have been a discussion among many of the enrollees just what prompted the girl to use this method of kissing the Senior Leader. K. P. Walden and Cook Waldron were riding back from town the other night on bicycles, having not said anything for some distance; Cook Waldron said to K. P. Walden: “I kissed her tonight”. oOo SAFETY JINGLE My buddie leaned over the gas tank, The height of its contents to see. I lighted a match to assist him. Oh, bring back my buddie to me.

The Educational building now has two fine new tables for reading. The Company Finger Printed The entire company has been finger printed by orders of the Director, Civilian Conservation Corps.

PAGE FOUR ROGERS-POST Wedaesday, November 24, 1937 (Continued from page 1) PARK NEWS ches in diameter, gives the name of the park and its location in the oval shaped lettering, and in a small circle, is a typical scene of the Hammock with an alligator surmerging from the water emerging and a deer appearing from, the dense growth of trees. The original drawing for the design was made by enrollee Riherd R. Greene, of this company. New Plants Procured J. B. McFarlin, wild life techirieian of the Park service personnel recently returned from a vacation spent in New Orleans, La. Mixing business with pleasure, Mr. McFarlin collected an enormous collection of herbarium specimen, seeds and plants. The technician stated that the most valued discovery that he made was a small tree known as “Inga”, having very bright red flowers. It was the first and only one that Mr. McFarlin saw growing in New Orleans. The Botanist’s contribution will be a great help to the botanical garden, which already has a fairly good size collection of living and herbarium specimens. Correspondance Course For The Enrollee The University of Oklahoma, Correspondence Study Department, is offering to CCC enrollees, courses in high school work by mail at a very low cost. The Educational I>epartment is very anxious to interest and enroll enrollees in these courses. Several members are already enrolled and are making excellent progress. Enrollees in camp wishing to take these courses may get full information from the CEA. A full year’s course in any high school costs complete only one dollar plus the cost of the text book. This is the lowest price for such a correspondence course ever offered to anyone. There isn’t a member of the company who cannot afford one or more of these courses and who does not need the added education in affords. New District Educational Advisor VISIT SEBRING’S ONLY CINEMA CIRCLE THEATRE Tickets purchased at the box office and Camp Canteen Visits Camp Dr. Flynt, the new D. 'E. A. visited the camp with Colonel Wiley last Saturday afternoon. He made a careful inspection of the Educational Building and the wood shop. It is probable that this camp will get a larger school building in the near future. Also, more machinery was promised for the wood shop. The present educational building is much too small for the camp needs and an opportunity to expand will be appreciated. We enjoyed Dr. Flynt’s visit. We will be looking foward to his next trip to the camp. ARMISTICE DAY Armistice day means a great deal more to a Veterans Camp than to a Junior White camp. Armistice day passed very quietly in camp as well as in Sebring. Many of the boys tramped to town on the 11th hoping to see some activities. There was no evidence anywhere except that a few of ithe stores were closed. Not a Legion Hat was seen all day — no parade — no footbaal game. Nothing happened htat could be even construed as appropriate to Armistice Day. ’There must be Legion Post in Sebring — there must be veterans in Sebring. Where were you? Armistice Day to a veteran brings back memories of that day — November 11, 1918. A big drive was on, the Germans were giving ground. A battle was in progress, in which 114,000 americans lost their lives. American soldiers were shoulder to shoulder for 'miles ion th<> Western Front, American artillery stood hub to hub from, Sedan to Verdun. American soldiers stood, covered with blood and mud and lice, almost toe to toe with German troops. The Roar — ^the flashes — the crashes — American soldiers blown by shrapnel into thousands of pieces — the chunks of human flesh falling into the mud and filth to slowly ooze out of sight and rot and be devoured by creeping vermin. And then the Armistice — ^Back to God’s Country — To Family — A Bath — Food — A real Bed — A human being again. The Veteran remembers Armistice Day. And some years to come, you Junior Enrollee, you’ll have your day to celebrate the war you went to. You will go through it all, just as we did. A VETERAN member of Co. 453.
