8 Organization Hews Male CaH by Milton Caniff, creator of "Terry and the Pirates" Kipling Didn't Know American Soldiers Tec 4 Ed Mansell and Pfc. Jud Hessick, both of the mess hall staff, were seen strol- ling about the streets of the big city last Friday (or is it, in their case, Fryday?) after- noon. No doubt it was a Cook's Tour of Reykjavik — just two Doughboys rolling in dough. It appears that Pfc. James Collins is in a run-down con- dition (no, he didn't meet with an accident — just an incident). Jim is weak from sweating out a letter he re- ceived from the States dated 3 December 1943. Jim, the male situation must be bad back home. Pvt. S. Ed Nolen reasons that if all the rumors he'<= heard since he's been on the Rock were put together, it would relieve the boarding house situation in Washing- ton, D.C., and that's a capi- tal idea! Company Clerk Steve And- rasko, that "Wizard of Ours" at pocket billiards, challeng- es any man in the outfit to a game on the company green. Steve takes his cue from the Orderly Room — which proves he's on the ball. Tec 5 Ralph (Good Morn- ing) Kiefer, our bed boy, has COT what it takes to be em- braced in the arms of Morp- heus. Ralph is strictly an undercover man — a true Anglo SACKson. Qpl. Porter met Cpl. Harry Dawson in the Orderly Room. Porter inquired of Harry, "What's new?" To which Dawson replied, "New hat, new blouse, new shoes, new socks, new shirt and a New Year." To which we add, "MAY IT BE A*HAPPY ONE FOR ALL!" Put. Sidney Glickman. -vfTf-rrrri------- ... ittwt-vv*™-*!* Christmas activities took first place around camp this past week. Saturday night's dance started the ball roll- ing and Danny Mcintosh and John Fruge kept it rolling from there. Christmas Eve saw such oddsters as John Horan, Tom Cavanaugh (who's ready to murder the White Falcon staff at sight for forgetting the tag line to his Christmas cartoon), and Lou Weare all in their own little World. Christmas morning eggnogs were spied with the sensational trump- et of Vito Toto who has tak- en the place of Harry James. Christmas dinner was just the way Mother would have it, practically. During the dinner we had "personal" radio messages from General Key, the Presi- dent, Duffy's Tavern and the new and original MP Vict- ory March which was in- troduced. The interruption in the scheduled programs was technically prepared by Ray Bates and Jake Wirth. The gags were supplied through the courtesy of Tom Moffett and Ben Rosenthal. John Cline Fruge, Servero Gomez and Tony Paolucci ably assisted. An unusual amount of musical talent has been com- ing out into the open lately. Just this past week Jim Young grew tired of blow- ing his top and spent the afternoon in the barber shop blowing a trumpet... .Stirr- ed by all this, Aurelio Padre- vita decided that he, too, had talent. Christmas night he visited all the huts with his violin and cup doing his version of "White Christ- mas" — supported by Arn- old, Gottshall and Horan. That may not be correct for we are not sure who was supporting who. A very Happy New Year to all the members of the IBC from the Military Police. Pfc. Ben Rosenthal. (The Gag Man!)

It's a well-known fact that Christmas comes but once a year. Here's hoping that we don't have another weekend like that for anoth- er year___Our PX steward offers a prize of three bottl- es of beer for the best sug- gestion for an official name for our club. Each entry must be accompanied by the scalp of at least one 1st Sgt. Bill Donnelly. QURRTERmfiSTE Club Candlelight opened with a couple of bangs over the weekend. All of the ob- stacles of nature and our electrical system were over- come by the "spirits" of the participants. Prexy Ellery Fields was in and out — mostly "out" during the week .... Chairman Blimp was doing 19 different things at once .... Secretary John Thorne was feeling very sorry that he had no paper on which to take notes.

We hear that Tec 4 Schranz is having trouble trying to keep two chicks in the same coop. If Tess stays home, Frances runs to the movies. After all, Schranz, she might , , , .. , . , . up three feet away have had a ticket, you know * ...."Well, Mr. Anthony," ' "" Ski Club .... Who was the guy who fulfilled a life-long ambition when he blasted away on a whistle at 0300 Christmas morning in the Master-at-Arms' shack? .... Ed MacMillan has added an- other don't to his list of re- minders. Never underestim- ate the jolt in a good-sized portion of high voltage. "Why, it even shook the to- bacco out of my pipe," he said, as he picked himself ORDNANCE ORDANOTES: It's a lie! Tec 5 Bristol did not jump into the cosmoline tub hop- ing to get shipped home as an Ml. It was a slip of the tongue —'¦ shoe, one ea..... It is suspected that S/Sgt.

Gossip has it that one Te<' 4 Guglielmo did, with intent and purpose, steal and e»t one ea. pancake, the proper- ty of "Herman," the com- pany pooch. Now will you get up for chow, John ? .... "Doc" Kaske has been bend- ing over the lathe every night making a new pair of clip- pers — claims it will actually cut the hair. Gosh! Ain't -sci- ence wonderful? What next? ___ The "Senator" has something new in his foot locker and S/Sgt. Seaton had better "watch" out___We Pf.c. Ger&tein says, "my pro- blem is this: I gotta a gerl named Adel and now I gotta a gerl named Goula. What should I do?" ....Was Sgt. Tarkington's face red when he walked into the Mess HaH that a. m. with his face smeared with lipstick? .... Who requested that hillbilly serenade by the boys on "Melody Round-up" for Clar- ence and the GIs in Iceland? -----Aside to Hut 63, don't go picking on "Scotty" Mc- Clish for what you see in this column. There are other men in your hut. Tec 7 A. Nonny Muss. s«>* *^ All hands wish too express their sincere appreciation to Jerry Cutro for one of the best Xmas presents they re- ceived this year — mail from home!!! Jerry worked all Christmas Eve to see that the boys got their mail be- fore Christmas Day. We might mention here that the boys in the ATC deserve a vote of thanks for such wonderful timing. Nice go- ing, fellows, you made our Christmas a pleasant one. Neil (Size 12) Dowd had a soaking good time learn- ing the game "Watch the Pebble" the other day at the makes these medical lectures palat- able, what with his vivid des- cription on the use of band- ages, tourniquets and splints. Sounds gruesome at times, but it would be a mighty good idea if all hands would pay attention. T. Hibson, Y/2c.

A better cho- ice couldn't have been made. Congratulations, Joe. At the recent company shinding, we had a tough time when we tried to choose our new "Moonbeam Kid." It was a toss-up between "Fat Boy" Williams, "Rak- ari" Anderson and "Big Bel- ly-No Hair-No Hittum" Ro- bel. My vote went for "Fat Boy" ....
