Lieutenant-Colonel Newton Crumley, commanding officer at Mlnter Field, officially presented a flag from the aviation cadet wing in apprecia- ion to the club for its co-operation. "Above all—the right hat" some Tfag has said, and Miss Kay demonstrated what was "right," from the day oC Dolly Varden, to the much- ridiculed chapeaux of the current hj->ur. Describing her hats as an accumulation, rather than a collection, she. modeled the Quaker bonnet. Dunkard hat, straw model of 3875 with sun-shade, bride's bonnet of lx;K!," Queen Victoria style, merry widow, tri-corn, beaver, sun bonnet and scores of others. Accompanying herself on the mcloijion and appearing in a costume of the late nineteenth century, Miss Kay's entertainment reached a climax with an interpretation of Piney Whippletree singing in church. A lively presentation of "Saucy Little Bird on Nellie's Hat," accompanied nt the piano by Mrs. A. R. iloisington, was also a highlight of the. program, the number being in spired, of course, by the hats trimmed with the stuffed birds which Is Easy to Clean! Just Rinse I f ...

Last week \ve said something about a pair of pants of mine Server had for cleaning and pressing. Well, it seems as if the pants were already at my home and put away somewhere without my knowledge ... and there I was, accusing poor old Server of keeping my trousers. At any rate, there I was without the britches and naturally I thought Server had them. Now I have my pants, Server has his apology, and everyone is happy. Here is a good story about Private Bill Cunningham. This Bill Cunningham is not the same Bill who owns and operates the up-and- acomin' Standard Service Station on the corner of Chester avenue and Brundage Lane in Bak- ersficld, Calif., where you always get service with a smile . . . and where you still get all that free service we used to get before the war ... windshield wash, free air, free water and so on. This Bill Cunningham is a tank driver on the Italian front. BUI bought a dressed chicken and put it in the tank he drove. When the tank was hit by a shell and began to burn, Bill got out and waited for the bird to cook. Then Bill walked back to his outfit, munching roast chicken. That's what you call Yankee ingenuity. But wait a minute, folks. What I am supposed to do and what I get paid for is to advertise and tell you something about the Frank Meat Company's six busy markets. Pork is scarce, hams and bacon are scarcer, lamb and veal are not too plentiful, but beef is in good supply and especially at any one of Frank Meat Company's sis busy markets, which cover this community like the morning dew. MEAT the people at Frank Meat Company's six busy markets. Frank's Reporter
