8 Organization Mew® Glad to see McLean out of the hospital, we thought for sure he was going to spend the whiter there — hut we guess, .he got out fast when he found out he was. made Cpl.....The guys in the Sqdn. want to thank the Mess Sgt. and the cooks for the swellelegant Xmas, and New Years Day dinners. Also, a grgat big vote of thanks for Cpl. Manza and Pfc. Ash- worth,,for the grand show they put on for us after our Christmas dinner. They had us laughing throughout the show.....Well, all the hoys in the outfit are ready to start the new year out right by., turning over in their sacks, and saying "I hope I. get, as. much sleep this year as I did last year."____"Doc" Valemmela is a wizard of a butcher. When he uses those barber shears, we darn near- have to go to the dis- pensaiy for a blood transfus- ion. Now that lie's Pfc, though, he may do a better job.-----I see that Cpl. White over Hut 43 way is kind of stuck on that two-page, nine- picture pin-up spread in last Saturday's White Falcon. He just stays stretched out on his/ sack, staring, up at the pictures and swooning — especially over that delect- able dish named Sherry Brit- ton. . .. . With the new pro- motion list out, everyone is passing around, cigars or ac- cepting them from someone else. Along this line, congra- tulations to our new 1st Sgt. Garrett. He's a swell guy when he isn't loooking for someone for KP or detail. Or, should we say, when he's asleep?-----Pfc. Pitts sure looks tired these days now that he has, a steady date — but he's happy and that's all that counts. Cpl. Stieve of Orderly Room fame says that if he doesn't ge"t to see his nurse soon, he'll get gray hair worrying about her. To tell the truth, he only has hair around his head an,d not on top of it! Sgf. Anyelo J. CJiieffi. Have you tried a "Mendez Special?" We are not refer- ring to an alcoholic concoc- tion or to a super-fast train but to haircuts. Pfc. John Mendez, our tonsorial artist, is ready to trim or clip you, so why not visit his shop and meet the Axis. It will prove to be a hair-razing experi- ence. According to the company roster, we have the follow- ing men whose last names begin with "Mc": McKenna, McDade, McCleary, McKin- ney, McGeough and McSmith (how did he get in?) It seems that we have almost as many "Macs" as there are.in the Navy. If all the Me's were stretched out end to end, they would he more com- fortable. In last week's Falcon, this department wrote ahout Cpl. Steve Andrasko taking on all comers at pocket billiards. Since then, Sieve has receiv- ed many challenges to a game. We would suggest a contest be held. The cham- pion would (hen be award- ed the POOLitzer Prize. Take your cue from this boys and start the ball arolling. New Year's' Eve parties were thrown (no one was hurt) though plenty of bones were rattled in many of the huts. Lots of GI Joe's called for their young namesakes "Little Joe." The lucky ones were rolling in dough; the unlucky ones had the cards stacked against them. As they say in Wall Street, "A fair exchange is no robbery." Pvl. Sidney Glickman. stove and sang a love song to it — must have thought he had a hot number. "Set 'em up for the house" Evans won a five kronur bet from Hebert, hut as yet hasn't been ahle to collect. Every other entry on the check list at the gate was "Crump with a load of girls." Nice going, John. The quizzical are asking why Jack Hazclhack is sing- ing again. See you all at the Club to- night. Bill Donnelly. QUHRTEfimflSTEH Once again the big news consists of the two excellent parties over the weekend at our cluh. To quote one of our more distinguished visi- tors, "Anyone who says this isn't the best club on the is- land will have to see me, Joe Dugan." And that was before he fell into sewer. One flush would have meant the end of a rather brilliant career. Even Dolph Wilson gave all the girls a New Year kiss — though he was blushing so profusely that you couldn't even notice the lip- stick. We don't mind Vic Niel- sen coining down every weekend but we do wish he would refrain from getting sick continually. Last Satur- day flight he embraced the This recent epidemic of bandaged heads, aching backs and other miscellan- eous cuts and bruises doesn't mean that the boys have been going in for pugilistic activities. It's just that they have been going in for a little amateur basketball and the games have been gett- ing a little rough at times. Marine Pvt. Shepard says the Zippo Lighlcrs we rec- eived for Christinas are pretty cheap. They only cost us 365 days. Be patient, Shep., we hear they're going to put hash marks, on them in the future. Mike Coppola is getting to he a regular somniloquist and the rest of the fellows enjoy his nightly conversa- tion. Be careful what you say, Mike! John M. Smith and Les Wahl returned from the Ski Cluh and their faces were quite red. We can't figure out if it was because of the skiing, or the drawing they had in the office. Incident- ally, fellows, how much ski- ing did you do? Bingo is the latest rage in Hut E-33 but it doesn't seem to be very profitable for the proprietors. Pete Gerlock (an outsider) showed them some of the finer points of the game. Why does Jerry Cutro search the mess hall before entering? Is it because of Joe; Walker's sermons about reforming Jerry? Those wedding bells ring louder and louder each time Palla sees his stulka. Where will the wedding be, Palla, at Borg or Heckla Square? We understand all hands will be invited to the big affair. T. Hibson, Y/2c. ¦ ORDNANCE ORDANOTES: That "start- er crouch" of S/Sgt. Thilking is the result of those many sprints to the orderly room every TD rumor-----It looks as though Pvt. Steincn is running a close second to Pvt. Swindcrman as head man in the chow line-----Who were those depot men who raided the hut of a certain S/Sgt. at 0100 hours?. And then stayed to 0800 hours? That's what night work does, huh?.... To Tec 5 Richardson goes the "tissue paper" messkit for his excllence in the "Rumor" Dept____We don't like to say this, but one Tec 4 Schranz has been seeing RAILROADS in Iceland!!! Say it isn't so, John. Let's just say it was a "toot" and let it go at that. Ok?. . . The "InnerSanctum" (orderly room to you) is making it difficult for your correspondent. They all can't be good boys—not all the time. T'ain't Hoom.un! CHRISTMAS EVE-nts: The debut of the famous sym- pathy orchestra, the. "Nikel- odians," giving out with music that was out of this world. (It should .have been!) Guest artist for the evening was S/Sgt..(Tulips) Straehl who played strictly from hunger. Well, ok, make it from thirst .... The "jitter- bugging" of one ea. Tec. 5. Tubman and Pvt. King.... The vocalizing by a group of Gls huddled in a corner. It always happens when Craig meets Craig.... All in all, it helped make Christmas, a little easier for each of us. Let's hope we will all have a Happy New Year., Tec. 7 A. Nonny Muss. There is a most unusual tale spreading ilke wild fire throughout the camp. It in- volves one individual who is finally admitting his guilt — after many, many months. It seems that this very young soldier does little more than eat and sleep. Work, as far as he is concerned, is some- thing one talks ahout but never does. And so, after all these months, he has admit- ted that he should not con- tinue to keep all the. money he "was given" in the past 12 months. After a period of careful deliberation, it was decided that he is entitled to eight percent of his pay which, represents 30 days of work out of the past 366. And so he shall return to the Army some $600 as soon as the' proper method of re- fund is determined. We won't tell you exactly who this lucky boy is, but your guess is as good as mine! Cliff Franklin claims he is through with women — seems, we have beard that song before .... Jim Young has promised Lee Berkman of Herskola Theater fame anything in the place. Why? Yo.uug was. sweating this out but , he can stop worrying now.. This is not the week. . . . . Tony Galinsky promis- ed the Reykjavik "Snow Queen" a Hollywood con- tract. That's why she went out with him, poor kid. At this week's swell and fast-moving ENSA show, Tony Cortese received more than his share. He still hasn't calmed down after touching that girl's calve .... Harry Auld took a runout powder on us the other night and we expect him back, post haste. Pfc. Ben Rosenthal.

Jimmy Wynn, a rank amateur in affairs of the heart, announces plans for his forthcoming publication "An Illustrated Guide to Reykjavik Nite Life." In spite of the fact that Geor- gia's favorite son is strange to, his new surroundings, he yet insists that all of his mat- erial bajs been drawn from personal experience. . . That's the best I've heard in two years....It may not be re- garded as being of any real news value when a canine bites a Homo Sapien (this means you!), but when si man, Pfc. Bagwell, digs his incisors and cuspids into the ankle of a dog-robber, Pvt. lack Reddick, that my friends is definitely news... .REQU- IRED READING FOR PRO- SPECTIVE GOODWILL AM- BASSADORS: "A.
