He lime Into the Army with the In- ercsling notion that the trouble 'Hli the, war was that he wasn't •mining it, And, the poor chump lei ils barracks mates know exactly low he felt. The other ois bore his boasts 'ith equanimity for awhile, then, no night, someone spoke up. "That guy needs a lesson," he nuounced. The next duy was Friday and the well head came inlo his living IHar- -fs lo make ready for PT. He hanged his clothing and bent over Pick up his tennis shoes. He BBccl and tugged. And lie said tui- iud thins:; about the human mice >s lie pried up the shoes someone ail thoughtfully nailed to the Moor. But Hint wasn't all an imsympn- hcli cfatc had in store for the biB- leailed one. When he returned from r r. hot and tired, he decided lo lush himself a little farther before iv let down. Accordingly, he washed lis window in preparation for the cxt day's inspection. Then he went or a shower. When he returned, he gaped In urm-isc, .then orated lengthily on railties of man's character. For. he spotlessly clean window had ecu replaced by an unwashed one so smoke begrimed the light of day vas almost screened out. Still muttering, the l>escl GI vashed another window. Then, he nade the 1 mistake .of leaving the larrack again. .When lie returned, ic found another dirty window ilierc u clean one hud reposed. I't'he air turned blue from the li'imstone of his speech, but, since 10 one uiild the,slightest attention o him, lie somberly laundered another 'big square of glass. Then he rred slightly. He left the building giiin. When he relumed, well, yon guessed it, there was another win- low to be washed. It was early the next morning rtien he reported to his squadron otnmander. "Sir," he said, "when the hell can gel out of here anyhow?" .-:BLYTHKVILLB (AUK,) COURIER NEWS 'Granny' Saves Rats For War NeelsT' Shaver To Seek ^ Re-election As Lieut. Governor J. L.
