Clipped From The Bakersfield Californian
Ed Monroe Wants Job From England Corporal Edward H. Monroe writes as follows; "I wish to apply for the job that you advertised in your paper some time ago that read: 'A discharged soldier to learn blue printing, photostat copying, eventually become an executive. Prefer wounded, convalescent or over-age infantry sergeant. Second choice, an extra bright air corps general.' Fourteen Promotions "I'm not discharged yet, but have hopes within five years. I haven't been wounded and I'm only 21 and a corporal in the air corps. I've only got 14 more promotions to become a full general. Sp if you can wait a little longer I would like to try it. These English cigarets are making a casualty out of me, so to keep from hiring a wounded soldier please send me a carton of American cigarets. I remain'a perfect, sound mind and body, Bakersfield Californian and proud to say so." Corporal Edward Monroe is with a depot repair squadron in England.
