DOPE BUCKET J. r. I'UU.S NEAT STUNT It has been an age-worn custom to drink water, or eat bananas to put on weight In a-Jinny, but Joe Llntzenlch had his own Ideas about adding the avoirdupois In an cx~ ircinc emergency. Capt. Leo (Little Dutch) Lhitz- enlch, Joe's older brother, gives the lowdown on Joe In n recent letter from England where he Is stationed in the American Army Air Force. His letter lollows: Dear J. p.: • ..' Received your hist letter O, K, and guess It Is about time I knocked out an answer. It won't be much trouble for mo tol ook up Murray Thompson as he Js right here on the field with mo. He has been here about two months and is work- Ing in S-2 (Intelligence) Department. Just got. a letter from George (Buster) Cross 'down In Italy and everything is going along fine. He had been on 37 missions at that writing. Of course, Ihc Big day has come and gone and we all feel quite a bit better over it. I think we were all beginning id have "invasion nerves" as bad as the "Jerry." It was as big n surprise to IB as it probably was to you, except we knew the night before that something unusual was coming off. . FOLLOWS SAKGE'S HINT I got a funny letter from my brother Joe. He has just Joined the Army under one of the Sixiclal- Izecl Training Programs. I don't know too much about It. Seems as if he was having a little trouble with the Army doctor in Little Rock over Ids weight so the sergeant Ihcre told him to go outside, eat n big meal mid come back to weigh in. His "meal" consisted of a 20- pound watermelon of which lie consumed about three-fourths. I think lie was one-half..pound over the minimum when he weighed back In' By the way, I am not (it Andrews Field now. Was there only about a month anri have spent the remainder of the time at this base which [Iocs not have n name, only a number which we are not allowed to Bivc out. I Imagine Mother got the Idea that this was called Andrews Field. Say, the local draft board there is really sweeping through. Never thought Dint the fellows with children would be drafted. , You mention the cadet training being tough. They are probably going back to the rigid standards that prevailed before the war. In one way that,Is n good sign probably means that .requirements r pilots have Just about teen met Of course, we arc all looking forward, to what, everyone overseas looks forward to after a few months -going HOME. Can't tell though It may be China or India. At least we feel as If we are on the home stretch as far as this theater Is concerned. THREE IHUTISH SEASONS Someone remarked tile other day that there arc only three seasons of English weather, early winter, intc winter and winter. Anyway, wo are still sleeping under three or four blankets here in the middle of summer. Our darkness now consists of about four hours, from 12 until 4 m the morning.
