Y., girl who has/announced her engagement to an Italian prisoner of war. For the sake of the morale of American soldiers fighting the war to n finish, the romance itself should have l>cen blocked. OI Joe hasn't seen his American girl In months or maybe years. And while he is fighting In the cold and enduring hardships that American girls back home can't even comprehend, n war prisoner has had the opportunity to meet, woo, and \vSn n American girl. Such news Is bound lo make Gl oe think we folks back home know othlng of the realities of war. \m\ who can blame Win if he Isn't sucker to suffer and fight month ftcr endless month while the war 'ilsoncrs who are shipped back to tils country arc allowed to make he acquaintance of American girls, ml take their chances on winning •lie for a wife? 1WTE A BLOW The 19-year-old girl who • has gi^en her heart to an Italian pi'ls- mcr of war has been told that she can't marry her war prisoner while ic is In the custody of the United States. But she maintains she 15 going to vait for him. and if necessary go o his own country to marry him at he war's end. It must make GI Joe 'eel good to read of such devotloi being lavished on a prisoner of war by an American girl, Especially when it comes on top of story after story of American girls mid wives who aren't waiting for tliclr men Wounded Missourian Returns For Visit CARUTIIERSVILU3.
