OH! HAPPY DAYS! At last
the good old day, have returned
and furloughs are the style again.
As visual, the Thirteenth was the
first to take advantage of all the
special privileges offered by the
Army. At the present time we
have twelve men enjoying "vaca.
tions" at home and various other
places, but we wonder if they
are enjoying those mornings af-
ter. The length of time we will
be able to secure furloughs is a
'military secret," but let's hope
that they will stay in effect un-
til every last 'long-John' of the
Air Corps gets to see his sweet-
The biggest joke of the week-
Sgt. Jacobson at the USO Tues-
day night trying to play ping-
pong with a very beautiful young
lady but from the side lines we
could see that "Jake" was so
flustered that he missed every
other ball. The odd part is that
"Jake" hasn't called the girl
since that unlucky night. What's
wrong Sergeant: was she was too
good for you? Speaking of ping-
pong we hear that a certain cor-
poral by the name of McNeil got
so mad the other night during a
ping-pong game that he had 'to
stomp the ball into 'teeny weeny
bits. Now we ask you, is that
a nice wvay for a big six-footer,
to treat a tiny ping pong ball?
Sgt. DiBias was seen nearly
every night 'paiitiiig the Latin
Carnival red.' We understand
that he is dated up for the next
two months. Oh! How the girls
