Apr. SO, Ne\v Guinea Dear J. P.: Have intended writing you for ages. A fellow gels to be un accomplished procraslitiator where writings concerned after writing so much these past months. LIKES THE 'BUCKET 1 Mother clips your "Dope Buckets" and sends them with her letters. Gee! You have no Idea how swell it is to read ot all the fellows, where they are, what they are doing, who meets who. Not 'having seen onyonp from Ulythevillc for almost three years (34 months), reading your "Dope" Is almost like having a session with the boys; really a pleasure. Seems to be more of the Blythe- vllle bo.vs nre . throwing their punches at Jerry, judging from your column. I have been 1n this - area Hie past 28 months and haven't seen a single guy from home, other than n pilot I met up in the Grabriands who got his training at the Dlythcvllle base. Only guy I've seen whom I knew in civy life was Paratrooper Jack. Rlvnlto (C.B.O.. Memphis). Met him just after he "lilt the silk" in | the first chutist ncllon in the Southwest Pacific. 'Hadn't seen him since we fought C.B.C. in '38. Charles (Wliitey) Llpford Is 280 miles from here. I made n hop down to see him last month, but 15 minutes out the weather chased MS iu. so we had to return to home base. I hear that Jimmy Lunsford has Ihe same APO as Lipford Maybe I will get a crate down that way again soon and get to sec thci both. Hope so. (Horace has the same APO as Capt. Gene Hood. Mother said you asked dud to have me give the lowdown on yours truly. Well, J. p., rv c been on" this I'm Inking my hat off to those .'I2iid-13lvvy boys; those green kids sure did a great job In the first notion between Nips nnd Yanks on the 'ground hero in Guinea. They are still going Tokyo-ward, too. I used to R'ally be thankful I didn't S have to lilt the jungle, hunting Nip/s with those boys when we were carrying them "over llie hump". Have been with a Slrafer-Domb- fr Unit these past 22 months. Haven't been flying for past 10. strictly n groundling, except for an oe- easlonnl flight to break the monotony, or to see some Island group I've not seen before. These coral minks all look heller from upstairs than down. The "Orcen Dragons" (Chlcngo Tribune, Sunday Jan, 9) arc pretty well known lo Tojo's boys.

I scratched Edds n line several months ago. Guess It must have gotten wet. The pilot I met in Trlabrlamls Is the only fellow I've met who could give me the lowdown on Bly- thevllle since I've been overseas. From what I hear the "home town" Has changed lots. Sure would like In the opening game, Osceola oulscored Keiser In n free-for-all slugfcsl, 13 to 8. The visitors counted one run in the Initial frame, three In the second, two in the third and two In the seventh. The Semlnolcs tallied three in the second, throe In third, four in the fifth and three In the slxlli. Joe Whltworlh hammered out three singles. Austin Moore and Bob Watson clouted home runs to lead the Scmljiplcs' M-hlt attack., In the second contest Seinlnolc hurlcr Wa(san let the visitors down without a hit or run to i}ain a 4 to 0 victory.
