George Hunt, who is stationed here at Camp Callan, spends part of his time In the Army defending Arkansas. 1 sure wish I had known he was In Callan because 1 have some pretty rough times defending the home state myself. Not so much with .he other fellows from (he south, but J. P., these Yanks really give us trouble. Not only do they laugh at the way we talk, but have some crazy Idea that we arc all hillbillies. "But one night last November five boys from Arkansas put them straight on that Idea. Two of the imys were c.x-Chlcks whom you know very well, Pfc. Sonny Lloyd and Pvl. (now Pfc) •Jlmmle Allen, the other three being Billy Culll- son, Allen Stacy and I. PltAlSliS l.OVAIt OFFICERS "Speaking for Allen Stacy, who was at Callan for four months, and myself I'd like to. say that Corp. George Hunt of the 53rd Bn was right when he said that Lieut. "Soak" Sanderson was a "swell Joe". He's all that mid more, too. Hut he Isn't the only Blythc- ville officer at Callan who is a swell guy. Foy Atchlson, unit per- lonncl officer for the 5Sth Bn. Is really swell, too. I've visited them both a lot in the last 10 months ami I'd like to say they don't come iiny better. "J. i'.. keep up the good work In the 'Dope Bucket'. I used to read It n lot nt home but since 1 have been In the Army I can hardly wait to get to Foy's house to read the 'Done Bucket' and find out where the boys arc and what they're doing. "The Army must think these boys Irani Dlythevllte are used to shooting at planes the way they put them in Anti-Aircraft. Varnc'l Deal, Allen Stacy. Soak Sanderson, Foy Atchlson, George Hunt, and 1."

"One boy here was a farm member of tile St. Louis Browns a couple of years ago. His name is Mctcalf. Another Is a Pltsburgh Pirate farm hand—Arvel Pauleg ...By the way. 1 saw Bcnrtonna Huey the last time I.went home. She Is stationed at .the Coast Guar barracks and office In Houston.
