Don't do nothing but diill from 7:45 till 5:00. Nothing to it--but the only thing that keeps you going is the good old G. I. shoes. They just automatical Iv move vour feet ahead and he- lieve me your dogs are the only thing that an infantry man has got to use for transportation are his pood old dogs. Received the paper today and ture is good t about the way that is the first paper I have seen since the eleventh of December--good aren't L I read Dutch's letter and if ^ | thinks he's got it bad he siroJ be here. In the morning the is so thick you can cut it will knife and in the afternoon ^£ usually rains, but this the sun came out--man was I'm still sweating. " j Good old Camp Claibome £ located eighteen miles from A'iH andria in the good, lousy, in;^. r infested swamps of Louisia^" That ought to be good description of this hole. Well I guess I had better cV. because it is just about ].g- t out. Thanks again fo r the pajh and I hope everybody Js as hap; as I am. As ever, Rusty (Russell F. Misz'tri P. S.

We must have had 4 dozen real arge oranges for the dollar. The unit of exchange most commonly used is the 5 franc note--our del iar is worth 75 francs. I bought i highly colored table scarf for Emma for 115 francs--after bargaining for 15 minutes to bring the Arab down from 125 francs. [t takes a lot of hand waving and finger counting and money waving ;o do business with them but they augh and shake hands to conclude the deal. I walked among them with my modern clothes and wenp- on slung over my shoulder and thought "surely this is the meeting of the old and the new." One native who lives nearby to us, has become quite attached to us. He goes along and carries our orangej and helps us get better bargains and we pay him a little now anc then. I named him "Alvino Ray' for no good reason after the swing band guitar player. Ha. 1 do believe I'm having the time of my life. Last night 1 tuned in an American short wave station and hean all the news from home. Also heard "Rosie the Riveter." Ha What next? I always like to hear what they're saying about our foices in North Africa to check with what information I get from time to time. This morning I took some ol the lumber we had used to crate our equipment and built myself E bed frame. Then I took my can vas bed roll and strapped it ovc: the framework much like a can vas cot. A farmer's hay stacl nearby provided a filling for m mattress cover, so now I have pretty decent place to sleep. I can imagine that about 3 a. m. to morrow, I'll probably be flat on the ground floor again \f I turn over too fast in bed. Hah. If make too much of a commotion the boys are liable to start shoot ing my way. Hah. I've been enjoying my work very much The garrison training that we had to carry on in the states was drill and uninteresting --but here we know the job we have to do and everyone is pitching in to get it done as quick as possible and get back home again The men have been swell in spite of the poor living conditions, lack of bathing facilities, canned foo] 5 times a day for what seems ages and no variety of food either. Dad probably knows what "iron rations" are. Hah. Hope this finds you all well and happy. Write soon and tell me all the news anr 1 let me know how long this takes to reach you. Be sure to write Emma as often a? possible and give everyone my best regards. With love, Cecil. (Lt. Cecil G.

B. is on the decrease? That bare legs have nothing to do with getting the disease. How many girls do you see without varm hoots or rubbers to keep :hcir feet dry? How many do not icve good warm coats? True, T. B. can be caused from exposure, but majority of cases arc rom lack of good -wholesome ood and unhealthy living quar- ers, improper care of colds, etc ut nevc r bare lega. Aa far as eing decent what looks more undecent than a man or boy stripped to the waist doing summer work.
