XV WHILE Eddie and Joe were still killing time around the pool room the final edition of the West way go News was brought in by a paper carrier. Eddie and Joe read tlie headlines over the bartender's shoulder, YANKS I,AM> ON AGU "Say Joe," asked Eddie, "ain't Agu where we was this morning?" "Yes, that's II." The bartender was reading another column, "The St. Louis Browns beat the Tigers today," he told a customer, "Six to four. Detroit's lousy this year," He sighed •"So I lose two smackers just for bein' an optimist," Eddie saw no particular irony in thai. Ue said wistfully, "I't like to see a good ball game, wonder how long we'll be here." "Not long, I imagine," Joe toll •him, "You notice we don't mec up wilh soldiers of any other wai hanging around," | "That's right.

"Nol thnt J know of anyhow, aid Lloyd and then decided to lell ie truth. "I was up in her room nd she hadnU made her bed and very thing was messy." Joe laughed, "The trouble is our girl hasn't had top-kick like ou had lately." ' Lloyd disregarded that. "And ne way she bawled her mother ut for' her to help wilh the ishes. I'm glad I found out' in ime." "Just what dn you moan, ime,' Private Nelson?" Inquirec oe. "You've got all tho time there s, plus eternity," Private Lloyd Nelson lur that over in his mind with sudden stunned realization. "Even it iave, I'm glad anyway." I don't know if it's quite fair, said Eddie, "for us to find on what people do when they thin 1 hey're aloneJ' * • • f LOYD was still dwelling on hi shattered romance, "Sh swiped her father's shoe stam she was going to buy her self a pair of slippers with fane buckles. Arid she's got six pairs o shoes in her closet already." "You peeked, you rascal," JD accused, "Why not? The closet was dar untidy too. Dirty clothes all ovc the floor. And she had the ncr to tell her mother she didn't ha any stockings to wear and so she have to borrow hers, just to go i the movies. Who sees a girl's lej at the movies?"

"Yon should have seen the luff my folks had for supper while was at the bouse. And I'd fig- red from the letters my kid xotner wrote that they were 'radically starving." "I wonder," said Oscar Maloney, "if they would actually mind giving iip things to help get lie war over or if it seems more mportant to keep working for the high wages they're getting." "Don't try 16 write nn editorial iboul H," suggested Joe. "Leave :hat to your o!d man. He runs the :own newspsper. The way I figure it most everybody would go the limit If it was put tip to 'em but .here's a good many trouble-makers who haven't got kids of. their own in the service who go around hooting off their faces about how wrong everything is and after a while even the good citizens begin to believe it arid maybe repeat it.
