When he arrived there March 2 it was 10 degrees above zero, and thai night it dropixul to 5 below. And snow! He never saw so much snow In his life, and he's been up 'n (lie high Sierras, too. On May llicrc was a beautiful crust of runchy snow on the ground, anil hen there were four days of ruin, ,nc day of sunshine, five days of •ain, and a hall-day cf sunshine.

They Just Wouldn't Fit, So Texan Wears Boots With Uniform SECOND ARMY MANEUVER HEADQUARTERS, SOMEWHERE IN TENNESSEE, May 27.—''Bool training" is recruit training to gobs and marines, and now Private William B. Cooper, a soldier with an infantry outfit on Second Army maneuvers in Middle Tennessee, is trying to have Ihe term applied to the Army. Cooper wears a regulation U. S. 'Army uniform—plus boots, cowlioy boots. No, lie isn't a showoff, and technically, he's not out of uniform. A former San Antonio, Tex., cowhand, he soon discovered that his feet would never become accustomed to G. I. shoes. He applied to the Medical Corps and his Company Commander for permission to wear bis cowboy boots. "But you'll never be able to make a hike in them," he was told. "I'll make those hikes," he said determinedly. , He wore the boots . . . nnd he made the hikes. The Company Commander and the Medical Corps acquiesced. If you look closely at the thou- ands of pairs of soldiers' feet that troll through Lebanon Tcnn. diir- ig the week-end "break" between roblems you may spot a single oldier with a pair of honest-to- oodnes-s Deep- in- the- heart- of- Texas boots. That will be Private Cooper. The barn swallow is the only .mcrican swallow that iias a swallow tail". FITTED RY Dtcton J. L. «J J.

SWAN, I ii'1,1 Director Anii-iiriin licit Cross Among the unusual problems Ihc Red Cross .sometimes is asked lo handle is protecting :i servire- :ian from being reported AWOL. Pfc. Joe Brown was reported as being away from camp 19 days after Ihe last day of his furlough., This case was referred to our office so that an a I tempt might be made lo get this soldier lo rcluVii to his station before lie would be listed as a deserter. We wired the Chapter in his I home town to I visit his wife I other relatives, (establish his [presence and Im- l press upon him' I the consequences III he did not re- |liira to camp im- I mediately. In- 1 formation also I was asked as to I family difficulties I that might ex r (plain the soldier's motive for over- Mr. Swan staying Ins furlough. The Chapter visited Private Brown's home nnd (omul that lie :nid not, returned lo camp because 'ie was worried about his wife's condition. His wife needed an emergency operation and there was no one to care for his three small children. He had been making tiie necessary, arrangements and preparations for her operation, and had arranged for a relative to stay with the children. Brown's attitude was that he was not actually AWOL since he had written Ids commanding officer of his reason for his absence. After the Chapter explained in detail the difficulties he would be involv-- ed in if he did nol return to camp, Brown said lie would start back the following day. Upon Ins return, we wrote to Ills commanding officer, enclosing copy of the letlcr from the Chapter which gave his full reason for being AWOL. As a result, the soldier was punished less seriously. Similar cases occur. Pew AWOL cases arc deliberate and many of Ihe AWOL reports could be prevented if tht serviceman only knew what lo do. If Brown had contacted his Red Cross chapter before tiie expiration of his furlough, requesting an extension, this Chapter would have wired us their verification of the emergency silua- ion at home. We then would have eported this lo the man's com- nandtng officer to aid him in de- ermiuing whether an extension ihould be granted. Be sure thai you avail yourself of the services the Red Cross Is •eady to give you. 24-HOUR SERVICE Expert Repair Work on General Motors Cars.
