Men in the tent area will have

The shop will have the conveni-

I will start today serenely
With a true and-noble, aim;
,I will give unselfish service
To enrich another's fame.
I will speak a word of courage
To a soul enslaved by, fear:
I will dissipate drab discord
With the' sunshine of good cheer.
I will be sincere and humble
I tInhte. ;work 'I ^have.;.to:, do;"
I will praise instead of censure
And see the ,zod *i .you.'
I will keep my -mind and body

To the thisngsthat long endure.

To advance a worthy case;
I will .strive to lessen evil
And obey. God's righteous laws.
I will pray.to .Him to guide me

in Memphis in a nuts 'n' bolts es-

female member of a famous ra-
dio and movie team, "He was
a hardware man, Sid Cee." But it
seems that that business was liter-

up with Uncle Sam. Starting out
in the Quartermaster Detachment
in Baltimore he, has served in
Augusta, Savannah, Ft. Benning
and on December 24 was trans-
ferred to Drew Field as a Christ-
He got his first non-com promo-
tion after being in only five
months, when he was made a
buck sergeant. He made staff last
month and drew oie .pay with
that title. I'm sure that it didn't
hurt too much to give it up for
that extra stripe plus a diamond.
His last furlough was in August
of last year and he arrived at
home just in time to see his best
girl-friend get married. To anoth-
