Good home cooking was one of the things the soldiers missed most, sccording to Lt. Rump. He said they had three kinds of meat every day canned Spam, Vienna sausages snd corned beef. In addition, th men were served great quantities of powdered eggs. In spite of the hardships, the morale of the soldiers was very high, Lt. Rump said. He added that the constant action probably kept up the spirit of the fighting men. For entertainment the soldier were sble to see three different shows a week. Most of the movies were very old, Lt. Rump said, but occasionally a recent film was shown. On of th latest pictures the officers had seen was "Csss-blancs," which played a return engagement in Fremont a week ago. Men on Guadalcanal read everything they can get, according to Lt. Rump. He said the msils were the chief sources of reading material and special service officers furnished some magazines and periodicals. Mall service was quite good, he said. An airmail letter from Fremont would reach Guadalcanal in 15 days, providing there were no Interferences. However, letters msy be delsyed as long as two or three months. - Radio programs from th United States are heard infrequently on Guadalcanal, the officer said. He added that the men. of his outfit usually got excellent reception from Tokyo and derived considerable amusement from the Japanese attempt to break down the Americsn soldiers' morale by issuing propaganda about conditions in the Ststes. The recordings on the Tokyo broadcasts were modem, however, Lt. Rump ssld, snd sine Americsn broadcasts were more difficult to get the men frequently did listen in on Japanese programs. The only white- women he saw in the seven months wer a few nurses, Lt. Rump explained, and they were in overalls. Consequently a Red Cross station- s?on with American girls to escort the men to their hotel when they lsnded in San Francisco was a welcome sight. He left Guadalcanal July 18 and reached San Francisco Aug. 13. Conditions In the States have not changed much since he left, he said, but traveling from the west coast to Fremont was almost as hazardous ss snythlng he has encountered in 18 months In the army.
