ERNEST BOOTHE Continued from Page 5 sleeping on the hard ground, than the big fellow next to you. Your sleep is more or less of a coma and at one time, Ernest got four hours of sleep in four days, an hour a day. Then came a rest period of five days back in Japan, but it really wasn't a rest, Ernest said. His regiment was over-run while he was in Japan and. news came over the loud speaker how they had to run and he said he felt like a dog lying up in a rest camp while his buddies were having it so rough. All he did in those five days was figure out all the things he could do if he weren't lying on a bed that took him five days to get accustomed to sleeping on. The bathrooms were the most popular places. The only real baths taken in Korea by Ernest were taken in a big iron pot out in a Korean's yard — on« that was used to boil rice. ; * « * ' WHEN ms outfit could "liberate" chickens, they feasted on Southern (Korea) fried chicken, no pepper, no flour arid very little grease to cook it in. Ernest said he really forgot how fried chicken cooked tasted. The fun that went with getting the chickens and cooking them out of doors made them taste better. Ernest spent ten and one-half months in Korea and most of that time was spent in running, trying to keep from being cut-off or surrounded as the Koreans out numbered our boys five to one back in those early days. One show that will always stand out in Ernest's mind, was the showing of Joan of Arc. The weather was pretty rugged but to sit on top of a hill with the moon shining down on a blankeet of glistening snow was almost as spectacular as the showing of the technicolor picture. 4 Ernest's outfit got within 14 miles of the Manchurian border at one time, but had to turn around and go back south. They were surrounded on three sides, Ernest said. That was another big event in his experiences. » • » * IN APRIL, 1951, Ernest came back to the states and was sent to Ft. Sill, Okla., for nine months. He had signed up only for three years, but "Mr. Truman" saw fit to keep him - an extra • nine months. Upon his discharge he came home and immediately went in business with his dad who operates the Gulf Service Station in Osceola. Getting back home without even an ingrown toe nail, Ernest was fixing, a flat and the tire blew up, sending him up in the air "with the greatest of ease," bringing him down on the concrete smack on his chin and knocking out all of his teeth. At 23 years old, with a 3-year, 9-month service record, TtUvision — Tonight Tomorrow — WMCT Channtl 3, 4 WHBQ Channel 13 ^ym^'T ^'hs ***"*' 5 Wed., \ijht, Sept. 2f 8:00 Color from the Fair — Style Show 6:15 News Keporter 6:30 Eddie Fisher 6:45 News Caravan 7:00 Cisco Kid 7:30 Favorite tSory 8:00 TV Theatre 9:00 This is Tour Lift 9:30 Mr. D.

Having; been born in 1930, Ernest calls himself a "depression baby." He's another one of "Miss Blache's" proteges". Being small of stature during his high school day, his football playing was limited to running only one play; He weighed in at 113 and weighed out at 106 and that was the extent of his football playing. * * * THE ARMY did something about that, however. He is as husky as they come now. Maybe it's because he eats purple-hull peas twice a day, 365 days out of the year. That'll do it. The monotony of the C rations must have had some effect on Ernest's love for peas. Some day he is coming home to a. meal and there will be no peas and he will have to cultivate a taste for something else, but until that happens, that's his favorite dish. Ernest was too young to judge the failures and success at ; ttar Army during his stretch and says he hopes he never has to repeat it.
