This statement Is not true, of course, They arc nil Iminrtimt branches in the greatest fighting machine of the greatest ration In the world. Each has a definite work to do, a definite.niche to fill In the great scheme of this war business.' But it Is true the Infantry, the foot soldiers nre the least publicized, Ihe guards nnd tackles, If you please. Their work at clearing the path Is most Important. They slosh the mud In the winter; ent dust In the summer. Theirs Is a thankless task, us if any of 11 is one of glamor, Pfc. Finis Hardy, who Is stationed with the Infantry at Fort Bcnnlng, Oa., (Co.

Dear J. P.: I've read a lot ol your "Dope Buckets", but so far I've never noticed' any comments or versions on the infantry. I would like to give you a little dope on the fool soldiers of Uncle Sam's army. CONSIDEKS SELF LUCKY In n way, I consider myself very lucky to be here in the Infantry, I'll tell you this much though, I believe it is the best branch of. the Army.

In these problems we call on the Tank Corps ana Artillery to give us supporting. fire power. Now here is where the rough part comes in. The infantry (that's us) advances on the hill while the artillery nnd tanks fire over our heads. Spine times' you can look back and sonic boy who has become nervous and lost control of himself will start firing his rifle wildly over our. heads or under our feet. I've had many a close call just because of that. You must' have nerves to go there with _ .- bj the name of.-this kind of stuff.

However, Joe was close-mouthed last night about .speculation over ills trip to Now York. Rumors Imvc been heard that the former Yankee slugger might be negotiating to return to the Yanks. DiMaggio was in the hospital at' Honolulu for n stomach disorder not long ago but; has vigorously denied that he Is about to be discharged from the Army. He says he Intends- making no overtures to.the Yankees, the club which he became the premier home-run hitter in the majors. President Edward O.

It ,wns no pushover affair for Roy and "Tuny". Despite the fact that they toasted a slight weight advantage by virtue of Welch's mare than 200 pounds, the 2-1 victory was well earned and came only after a. bitter, hard fought, but rollicking performkncc. This Wlsbnr, thougn on the losing side, nearly stole the show as far as the 1400 fans who jammed the sinull arena to Hie rafters vveie concerned. Gus was at his best, both as a wrestler and a showman.' He gitvo Welch and "Tuffy" the fight of their lives, and the customers a great show us the Juicy plumb of a riotous evening of entertainment. Start Winning Streak, For a while It appeared as If ;\yis- har and Von-Liulwlg were going'to make a clean sweep of the program. Gus opened the show by trouncing clapper young Truesdale, the St. Louis boy who recently won the light Heavyweight championship of Mexico while on a lour, in their single-full preliminary. Von Ludwig followed with n victory over Welch, thanks to a neat bit of opportunity grasping. "But It'll be different in the tng match", one loyal fun said in open confidence as his fallen Idol, Welch, stepped through the ropes and went Into .the dressing room prior to the main event. From the way it started out even he must have changed his mind nt lenst n half dozen times as the pendulum of victory swung bnck and forth In the face of a .fast, blistering, exciting pace. • •." Wislrar and Von Ludwig broke the victory ring for the third time as they disposed of Welch to gain''nn edge or the first fall which had everything from comedy nriti clean fun to good, clever wrestling. Gus ' brought the thing to an .end by ; kicking Roy in the chest a couple 'of times after throwing him against the ropes for added effect.

Von Ludwig showed tremendous slaying qualities to finally beat the favored Welch In their bruising bat- tle'that lasted 16 minutes. And lie can credit his alertness to the vicr lory. He caught the veteran Welch in a careless moment when It appeared as If Roy was weii on his way to victory and turned the apparent defeat into a win, Welch had the Dutchman In a pretty bad way from flips but made the mistake of not circling for the clincher. Otto came up' with a crab hold and forced Roy to yell, "I give up." And it was a good thing, too. Georgia Will Observe Two Thanksgiving Days ATL-ANTA, Nov. 21 (UP)—Governor Arnall hns proclaimed both November 23 anj Nov. 30 as legal holidays In Georgia for the observance of Thanksgiving. The governor says he hopes the proclamation will solve the problem besetting residents as to whether federal or state law should be followed. But the state's bankers arc cry- Ing that the governor has only entire time taking 23 minutes. Losers Change Tactics Coining from the brief rest period Truesdale and Welch nltcrcd llieir tactics and It reaped big ditfl- demls. To start with "Tuffy" lit in on Von Ludwig with a scries df headlocks. He squeezed a while then turned-Ills vlcllm over to Hoy who applied more pressure. In desperation after Ave minutes of the punishment without chance of getting relief from Ills partner Otto surrendered. They, tried the same plan on Wisbar but the clever Dutchman evaded the vise-like clutches. But he fell victim to a bit'of rock- nnd-sock; "Tuffy" again getting credit for the fall In five more minutes. Von Ludwig was the principal tar- gel of Tnie«lnle and Welch as the third and (tedding fall got under way. But it was not ensy, not.with Wisbar on the loose and quite proficient with the head bump mode good and handy. But that problem was solved. A sudden switch to Gus' prized non-caullflowered ears, which life free of knots after these many years of mat campaigning, turned the trick. From then on Gus was just about willing to do anything in order to keep thctn away from his ears. Welch Calls On I»ct Hoy submerged Von Ludwig with body slam in five minutes, then culled on his pel to put the finishing touches to Wisbar In 10 more minutes, which won the match.
