From where I sit . . * oe Marsh Sam Abernethy always said: "Curiosity may kill a cat—but I'm no cat." Which is Sam's way of saying that when he's curious about something he goes out and gets the facts. '• Seems our government feels the same way. After hearing rumors about our soldiers drinking too much-government people went after the facts. They got the evidence on what our boys drink ... and, don't drink. "The government fognd out our Army's the best behaved" in ..Atf- history. More'n half of 'cm drink beer—nothing stronger. And the government found that selling 3,2 beer in Army camps is one reason why onr Army is so temperate. From where I sit, there isn't much cause to worry about our men in the Army."Looks like they can take care o' themselves -and take care o' the Nazis and the Japs, too.'
