"We weren't a hard-drinking bunch particularly, but that was In Prohibition," said Bill, "and forbidden fruit always seems worth goin' after. We'd hunt up a bootlegger, which was easy, and buy a bottle. "So, instead of a beer or two, fvell—I guess we generally drank too much!. . . wonder what the boys are doing this time?" ._ I got out the official report the Office of War Information made and read him this: "The tact that there is vastly less drinking among soldiers in this war may stem in part from the sale of beer in camps." From where I sit, It certainly doesn't look as if we had to worry about our boys. We learned our lesson in the last war, and I'm glad to see we're on the right track now.
