Thai's why he's thinking thingh over today. The whole thing starlet! when Daniels, an ex-Marine, found himself bending elbows next to an ar- ny private at a bar In Galesburg, 111. Soon he spoke wistfully of his ife in the Marines before he was sent home from Australia with a nedical discharge. Tlie private was properly sympathetic. Daniels had another drink and sighed. "Gee, I wish I coiitil Bet Iwck into uniform." 1 "Pal." said the army mnn, "I'll give yon mine." With their clothes and status du y altered, the new pals started out to tour the bistros in nearby Chicago. In time, things got a little hazy. The next morning the ex-Marine woke up without his friend and consulted police on the problem of getting back his civilian clothes. But (tic law wasn't quite ns sympathetic as his erstwhile pal. His explanations only netted him free lotlgini; pending a check with his draft board. USE PURELY VEGETABLE THE „ [JJainty ..... COOKING FAT Si's Wonderful!
