He is the son of Mrs. Alice A. Cooper, 708 Delaware N. E. --V-- IN NAVY HOSPlTAI^-Mr. and Mrs. Al Hammond, 410 Washington S. W., have had word from their son, Vern W. Hammond, hospital apprentice 1/c, that he is now stationed at a naval hospital in Chelsea, Mass. He wrote that he had spent the weekend "looking over Boston," of which Chelsea is a suburb. On Christmas day he was at the USO when an invitation to dinner came in for 3 fellows. He went as one, and wrote that he found a "nice home and really nice people." When they learned that his birthday was on Christmas eve they gave him a box of candy. He said they were asked to come back any time. His wife ..and children live at South Bend, Ind. She works in an office at La Porte, Ind. --V-- IS SEAMAN 1/C--Word has been received here that Hoxv- ard E. May, son of Mrs. A. C. May, 125 1st S.

"ormer Baker Here Charge of Post bakery at Arsenal Eight hundred to 2,800 loaves f bread are bilked each day at he post bakery at the Pine Bluff hemical warfare service arsenal, ine Bluff, Ark., where Staff Sgt. Clifford Quinn, Mason City, a inker in civilian life, is in charge, .ccording to word received from he arsenal. The bakery, activated in June, 943, is completely staffed by nilitary personnel, and the new ·quipment, says Sergeant Quinn, s of the very best. In the early hours of the morn- ng, lights can be seen in the akery indicating that Sgt. Paul Abbott, of Shattuck, Okla., and Pfc. Melvin Mackbart, Osage, ore already busy preparing the dough !or bread to be issued to all de- achments stationed at this army service forces installations. After the many younds of flour, water, sugar, salt, laid, malt, yeast, and milk powder are thoroughly mixed in the huge mixer, :he dough is put into bathtub- like troughs, and placed in a 'proof-box" where it is left to rise Cor approximately 2',2 houi's at a high temperature, during which time it is kneaded once. When taken from this room, Pfc. -Willie Nelms, of Crossett, Ark., divides the dough and puts it into the divider and moulder, where it is separated into 20- ounce portions--the correct weighl of one loaf of bread. Pfc. Nelms is on hand at all times to see that each piece weighs no more or less than the correct amount. Moving on a revolving belt, the dough travels to an iron claw tha places each piece in small dividec baskets to · be carried slowly around and delivered into th moulder. This machine is capably handled by Cpl. Bruce Rochelle, of Hope, Ark., who places the nouldcd loaves ·' in pans. The oaves are then placed in another iroof box for aproximately r one iour, before they are ready for he oven. When the bread is ready to be baked, Pfe. Earl Walker, of Knox- ille, Term., and Pvt. John Reichel f Milwaukee, Wis., load it~on to he revolving shelves of the oven, vhere about 400 loaves are baked at one time at a slosv temperature. When the bread is baked, all lands are ready to help remove t from the oven, and Cpl. Vivian Vlerritt, WAC of Spokane, Wash., s there to help. Corporal Merritt s in'charge of all records at the jakery but says she finds the bak- ng processes very interesting, and lopes to be able to learn more about it. Sgt. Quinn and Cpl. Rochelle should be-good teachers, since both have had many years o£ bakery experience. When the last batch of bread is jaked, the men are all' responsible for the cleaning of their equipment, and when they are finished, the machines are sparking clean, and ready'for the next batch. ' The bakery at the arsenal also supplies bread to the army posts at Monticello-and Stuttgart, Ark., and is always ready to supply troop trains stoppiing in Pine Blufs for rations. The figure of 800 to 2800 loav'es of bnead baked each day, is expected to increase in the future when Pine Bluff arsenal's bakery will be supplying "the staff of life" to other army posts. JOSEPH REIHLE DIES New Hampton--Funeral services for Joseph Reihle will be helc Wednesday morning at St. Joseph's church here. The Rev. J. J Leen, pastor, will officiate. - Mr Riehle died Sunday evening. LJ. S. Chaplain From South Tries Skiing tiome, Alaska, U.R--The for- unes o( war have brought to this rozen outpost a chaplain who had never seen a pair of skis and had pent his entire life in the warm climate of southern Louisiana's bayou country until he was as- igned to Alaska. He is Capt. Julius A. Pratt, post chaplain of the army camp near feme, and he has probably traveled as far on skis and behind a dog team as any soldier in Alas:a during the last 16 months. ^hen I stepped off the plane at Nome and got a look at the place I thought I must have been a bad boy to get assigned to this Dost," Pratt said. "But since then [ have visited several other posts up here and I'd rather be stationed at Nome than any other place in Alaska." Chaplain Pratt had to learn much about skiing because the post is scattered over a wide area, and the soldiers cannot get to a central meeting place for services during winter. Pratt makes the rounds regardless of the weather and tends tp discount his activities as being commonplace around Nome. But troops relate how he accompanied them on maneuvers that saw temperatures drop to 35 degrees below zero. He' carried a. portable altar, when it was possible, and set it up in snow-bound huts where his communion wine--with an alcoholic content of 12 per cent--iroze like water. Every year in Nome a Christmas party is given for all the children, Eskimos and white. Stock- \\ injs are filled with oranges, apples and other presents, and there is a Santa Glaus in a sleigh pulled by a real reindeer. Last Christmas Chaplain Pratt was the Santa Claus. "People remarked that it was the first time they had ever known a Santa Claus with a southern accent,'' the chaplain said, "but I told them this one was from the South Pole." Soldier Meets Boy in Bus; It's His Brother St. Louis, (U.R) -- P v t . Verrion Newnom, 22, came home to Alton, 111., 'after a 4 years absence. He sat down in a bus next to a 13 year old boy. They fell to talking. Newnom was nearly at the end of his trip from the south Pacific. The boy told Newnom he had a brother in the army who was coming home atter being gone 4 years. It was Newnonvs kid brother, Billy. Excuse Rates an Extension of Furlough Camp Carson, Col., (fP)--Pvt. larence Gierczak had an unusual --but acceptable--explanation for lis request for an extension of fur- ough when he returned to Camp Carson from his Ohio home. The private swore to an affidavit which said he accidentally had disturbed a skunk while walk- ,ng in the woods. He pointed out that cleaning and Dressing takes some time these days.
