The common saying of marines Is, "I don't mind the bullet with my name on it, but I sure don't like those marked 'To Whom It May Concern'." Need of HIP Day—Minter Field Officers' Wives, long thwarted In war volunteer services and general community participation and club activities, because there was no one to look after children, have tnken the situation Into their own hands. This week they launched a nursery care center at Minter Field in one of the buildings on the field nnd are .staffing it from among their members. The care center takes babies in their cradles up to 'teen-age youngsters, permitting mothers freedom on Red Cross Wednesday and for their club mooting* and permitting wives of young cadets to take, jobs at the field where workers are now badly needed. Young cadet wives at the. field with babies are finding it a big boon. The child care center will be open three evenings a week also, permitting husbands and wives to go to a movie in town occasionally. Mi's.

Thomas, 004 AVoodrow avenue, will receive calls and pick up any furniture or toys that may be offered.

I. walking along by his wife, gaily shoving a peramubu- lator. G. I.'s mouth full of pet- nuts. If must have been a furlough. "The. Lawd doan make 'em no better!" .said one Negro to another on the street corner. Wonder who the saint was? Kids at recess time on a school ground, rushing toward the swings and crossbars and scrambling for balls—Indicating that the process of obtaining knowledge is still not sis popular as freedom of recess. Remember how nice it was to get away from all the musty books and out in the sunshine? Dr. Buss Is Speaker at Osteopaths' Meet Dr. W. C.

Local Pilots Blast Japanese Oil Center California airmen of Thirteenth Army Air Force helped man almost half the planes which smashed the Jap-held oil center at Balikpapan on Borneo October 1. The raid, compared to the Poloesti raid by some observers, was the longest mission with the heaviest bomb load in the southwest Pacific. The bombers hit oil refineries, cracking plants, and one ship hammering an area which supplies 15 per cent of Japan's aviation gasoline. They had to fly through some of the heaviest and most accurate ack-ack since Rabaul and fought off 40 Zeroes in and out of the target. Second Lieutenant Alfred L. Leslie, 1500 K street, piloted one of the early planes over and Captain Robert A. Hannagan, 1B19 California avenue, flew one of the planes which pounded Balik- papan in the first raid.
