Picture above shows a group of them at a Christmas dance with Icelandic girls. Mn'" iTiTfinrMimlBBrii Two GIs are included in the observance of Christmas Eve festivities in an Icelandic home.

I FALCONS GI PHOTO CONTEST I | OPENS TO ALL SERVICEMEN IN ICELAND j g SOLDIERS—Here's a chance to get a fine, 8X10 enlargement of your | p favorite photo—and, if you wish, to have it packed and mailed home free g of charge. This service will be given weekly to the winners in THE WHITE FALCON'S new 'GI Photo Contest,' open to all Allied servicemen, both en- listed men and officers, now stationed in Iceland. In each issue of the Falcon, beginning Saturday, January 6, will appear a 'Gl Picture of the Week' which will represent—in the opinion of THE WHITE FALCON staff—the best photo submitted during each seven-day period. To the winner will go a free 8X10 enlargement of the winning photo—or of any other photo the winner desires to have enlarged—plus a carton of cigarettes. Here are the rules: (1) All photos must have been taken by a serviceman, and must have been taken in Iceland. Indoor and outdoor photos are equally acceptable, and the pictures may or may not be recent ones—that's up to the contestant. (2) All photos must be credited with the photographer's name, rank and organization. (3) No limit is imposed on the number of photos which may be submitted by any one contestant. (4) Photos should be sent to: EDITOR, THE WHITE FALCON, BASE SPECIAL SERVICE. Since a- winning photo will be chosen and published each week, there is no deadline on entries; however, the sooner your photo is received the sooner it will be considered. All photos will be returned at the conte- stant's request. 'March Of Dimes' Campaign Gets Underway Here For 'Po io' Victims WPB Chairman Says European War May Last Another Year Chairman J. A. Krug of the War Production Board de- clared this week that the Ger man counteroffensive on the Western Front will result in greatly increased demands on war production. . Krug asserted, "Gen. Eis- enhower has been doing everything he could to break though the West Wall. If he could have done it promptly, the munitions we had under procurement would have been sufficient — but he couldn't. Now, to safeguard against what will come in addition to what has happened, we must get ready to fight the kind of war we have been fighting for the past two months for another year — and perhaps longer/' NEW BUS SCHEDULE IS ANNOUNCED Having proved itself, the new bus system in now op- erating on an increased schedule daily. Buses now leave each end of the line at 2255. Other runs are made at 0730, 1300 and 1800 hours daily from each end of the line. GEN. KEY AWARDED D.S.M. Maj. Gen. William S. Key (above), former Com- manding General of the IBC, has been awarded the Distinguished Service Me- dal for "exceptionally me- ritorious and distinguish- ed service"—according to a recent announcement from the War Dept. As the announcement was made, Gen. Key was in Washing- ton for conferences on a new assignment, the na- ture of which has not yet been disclosed. Boxes have been set up at ABC Clubs 14 and 23 for the voluntary donations of mili- tary personnel wishing to contribute to the "March of Dimes" campaign of the Na- tional Foundation for Infan- tile Paralysis which has been announced for the month of January. , Proceeds of the drive go to wipe out the deadly dis- ease which strikes young and old alike. Part of the money is used to carry on the cause of the Warm Springs Foun- dation in Georgia which has received national publicity for the encouragement given its work by President Boose- velt — himself a victim of the disease. These voluntary contribu- tions will also be collected by unit or camp commanders who will turn the money over to Base Special Service on February 1, 1945. It is hoped that this worthy cause will receive 100 per- cent participation, by the members of the Command., Incidentally, kr6nur will be accepted cheerfully in the "March of Dimes."
