Jack O'Kcefe, stationed somewhere In India, is quite disturbed over an Important question which he in his recent letter as 1 follows: 30 June. 194-1 Dear J. P.: your column travels more than halfway around the world, but I'll confirm It anyway. J. P., 1 know your column was primarily concerned with sports, but at present I do not know of a greater sports you could write about .than the topic you hove been using since the war started. Since being in India I have woifc fd with quite a few boys from Mississippi County, but none 1ms lived In or close to Blytlieyllle. One thing I want to nsk you Is tliis: why can't my wife (the former Mks Evelyn Burn.s> sencj me the Blythcvillc Courier? Most certainly, I enjoy the "Dope Bucket", but I'm sure I'd enjoy the complete paper oiice In a while. Evelyn never falls to Include your column in every letter. Maybe that was u pointed question, J. P., but she says the Post Office won't permit her lo send the paper. Anyway, it's probably a postal regulation and If anybody knows you certainly would, Kec;; up the good work and we'll be back before anybody expects us. Sincerely, Jack. Postal regulations permit the mailing of papers up to 8 ounces by first class without a request. You may subscribe lo the Courier by such « request In writing to your wife, or anyone, who-In turn musi take 11 to the Courier office before they will be permittee! to have the paper sent to you. Before receiving his commission through Officer Candidate School, Jack was connected with the Highfill Cotton Company. He was quite active In Junior Chamber of Commerce work'.

Canny « particularly rough, as many a hapless opponent could attest, and Jils partner is no novice at the gentle art of bone-crushing. Lawson IIOK been around cauliflower row long enough to know most of the answers, however, and he undoubtedly will give im interesting, account of himself. Belkus, also long removed,from the amateur class, has'plenty of-convince™ in his Mile bug of tricks and Can-, ny and Allen are promised a warm session'In (lie battle pit.
