What worries m* if . . . happens when they get ft day off after working their head* off all weekT They go to town . . . and what then? What happens! The answer is ... mostly nothingI Becanse most towns near army camps just don't have nearly enough entertainment facilities to take care of the soldiers on leave. So the boys jnst stand around, leaning against lampposts nothing can tie wiwnff abort * couple of glasses of beer. There** another reason, too. Th*beer Industry Is cooperating with the jurnr and with the UtW-eaforee- nent officers to help keep th* pistes where beer Is sold, clean ami decent The brewers don't want ihelr beer sold to soldiers la plaee» where bad conditions mist. .•« an* they're right * * * Seems to me that we American* ought to get together and do- everything we can to make thing* pleasant* for the boys who are in or sitting on doorsteps. And some- training. They're doing their dutjr times, the local' townsfolk find . .. maybe 100 have too, in this direction. themselves wondering what's changed the town .. . instead of pitching in to help the boys have a good time in decent surroundings. • • * In many • towns, however, the situation is better. Many towns have nice, community places where a soldier can go sit down and "chew the fat" and enjoy some cake and milk, or maybe .a good glass of beer. The boys like that And they're not likely to get in trouble ... because common, sense tells yon There are lots of wAys of helping. We ought to support them all. All of us have our part to play,ia winning this war... and making- life a little easier for the boys in camp is something we all can do/ something about. &•••••••••••••••••••••••••••!
