Earl Sttcfel also contributes a great deal of time to the Red Cr OB'S,, but it's on holidays when the , workers are , gone, and he donates his time in a patriotic cause, that of giving fresh coa^s of paint and doing other repairing and refinishing to the rooitfs , so that they are always new and ( fresh looking. —•_ 1 A note from Hollis Moore Jr., who is stationed at Camp Me- Quaide,;Cal.; says "My tenth week of training, began today, and we are rapidly rounding out into' good shape, and are making a good outfit.

(Continued from Paee One) "In this city one meets people educated in the States or in 'thr from practically every country, am some if them put us sadly 'in th< shade when it comes to education However, this is war-time China and off duty there is little to d and very few places to go, unles -one speaks Chinese and knows th customs'and graces of the country We play cards, read and lately hav been playing a lot of chess. Wi make good : money and have littli chance to., spend it. Prices are ter rific of course. At one time : had to pay the equivalent of > j dollar gold to buy a ten cent pocke comb. So you can see we nevei buy anything we do not absolutelj have to have. The principal drinl is a Chinese vodka, the basic in gredient seems to me to be a^pooi grade of kerosene, or at least i tastes that way. You can also ge other dubious liquors like orangi champagne, 'huang ju'. or yellow wine. Gin and whisky are practi cally worth their weight in gold around $6.00 a shot. "If you want to get anyplace you either walk or 'rickshaw'. Th rickshaw coolie is a combinatior between the human horse and thi ^noted outlaw, Jesse James at hii best. We have some truly magnifi cent arguments in two language? over the fares and they usually enc up by shouting to high heaven, and all the world that we" are robbers because we don't pay them abou four times the usual fee. Going shopping and buying-.things ir Chinese requires a lot of patience all ten of the fingers and quite a bit of pantomine. Every shopping act in the East is a bargaining ac that would put good old American horse-trading to shame. They start off by asking about three times the value of the thing, and you counter by offering about one- thjrd of what it is really worth and it goes on and on until you stavt to leave, when the merchants begins to bargain again, and so you finally pay only about twice what it is worth, Some fun! "If anything- could make us a predate our native country, it's . jaunt like this, and one of these days there will be several million patriotic citizens, just like me, to return home and be glad to get there. Personally, I'll be mighty glad, just to stand on a street corner in America and watch the Americans go by. People with clean faces and clothes, and no dirt and disease and odor, S,tJU, it isn't in the cards right now, and it looks that we will be here for a while Ipngei 1 , We'll wake the most of it ind it's a lot of satisfaction in see' ing how all of the people at home are working and backing us up, and we-will do out' best over here," FIRST METHODIST CHURCH J, R, Billiard, Pastor Sunday School begins at 9;45 Pr.
