There are so muny things going on
lit the USO that it's 'hard for me to
decide what I want to do first so I
just go around and watch the other
'ellows have fun. 1 can learn the
most by watching people — they
really are interesting, have you no
ticed? Each individual has a new ex-
pression on his face, a new atmos-
phere — a sivt of aurora in which
Sic lives and works. Yes, I can learn
i\ lot from my associates.
There are a number of things I
want to tell you about, but the Dance
the U.'S.O. is having this Saturday
ilight. January 23, at the High School
Gymnasium comes foremost to my
mind. All servicemen are invited t
come. They're t: ying to get a special
orchestra, but if they don't, there
will lie good music because they got
ji number of new records in the other
day. Many of these feature Glen
Gray. Some of the new records
; re: Don't Do It Darling, I've Heard
That Song Before, Every Night About
This Time, Brazil, Begin the Ee-
guine, A Sinner Kissed an Angel,
Siboncy, and Havana's Calling Me.
So don't miss the dance, fellows,
Long distance telephone calls
are helping move things fast-
er these days in scores of army
camps and munitions facto-
ries. And long distance tele-
phone lines are crowded.
We know you 're glad to help
us clear the way for vital war
calls by making as few calls
as possible, hy being brief,
and by avoiding the long cir-
cuits to faraway cities par-
ticularly between 7and 9 p.m.
After all, war is everyone's
Number One job.

forgotten that your calls are
important, loo. We're as anx-
ious as ever to serve you when
you need us. If we ask for
your co-operation, It's be-
cause we know that to serve
you best, we must serve the

starling promptly at eight o'clock.
Bring your friends. There will be a
good time for all.
Fellows, y<ju should join the Jav«
Club at the USO. It soundc sort of
mysterious, but it isn't. Every Sun-
day morning from nine to twelve
they serve coffee and doughnuts.
They're good homemade doughnuts,
bi.ys, and you can have more fun
reading your newspaper and dunking
your doughnuts in homemade coffee
—like Mother used to make. There is
no charge. Just go in and make your-
self at home with the Java Club.
There are a lot of new crafts be-
ing introduced at the USO Club, i
started caiving my initial and a lit-
tle design tti the handles of a wood-
en salad set. Some of the soldiers'
wives have started work on rugs. I've
seen more than one soldier show in-
terest, in them and give advice on how
the pattern ami colors should be ar
langud. It 1 ;oks easy enough and I
wouldn't mind trying it some time
myself. They have the patterns and
materials right there and you can
leave it from one week to the next.
No one will ever touch it. 1 know
because 1 started a jig-saw pu27.l1
one Monday evening and the next
Wednesday evening it was still there
just like I'd left it. The girls tell
me that the only time a puzzle gets
moved after it's started is when it is
There is something new in aie be-
ing introduced by Mr. Clyde C.
Clack. New York City. He will be
at the USO Club all day Friday giv-
ing instructions. Mr. Clack describes
finger painting as a new medium of
expression in the field of arts. One
cf the reasons for the sudden popu-
larity of finger painting is the fact
that even though an individual has
had no experience in any kind of
painting he can, in a very short time,
create an interest in design.—Tl*e
"C'an't-ers" soon become "Can-era'"'.
I've always had an interest in paint
ing so I think I will try it. It
sounds easy enough and that's just
wha; 1 need for I'm an amateur in
the field f art.
The Bingo party last Wednesday
night was a big success. There were
over I'ifty playing at one time when
I counted them. The long distance
telephone call was won by Pvt. Clar-
ence Allen, Det. Med., Dept., Station
Hospital, Camp Swift. He placed his
call to St. Louis, Missouri. Pvt.
Younts was playing again Wednesday
night and he won twice. He is the
fell >w who has won the telephone
call two times. Pvt. Ribauldi won
three times Wednesday night. I was
iust beginning to gel acquainted with
him when he told me he was leaving
next day to go to school some place.
I was watching a boy make a ri
cord. Another boy was accompanying
him at the piano and he was making
a recording ( f "When Irish Eyes Art-
Smiling." You know, that song does
things to me and I sat there and
listened while he made the record.
When he played it back it sounded
like a professional. I'll have to get
that boy's name. I like to hear him
There are a lot of good books in
the bookcases of the USO. 1 didn't
know I could check one out i.nd since
it takes me several days to read a
book, 1 just never bothered to start
one. But when 1 learned that I could
check them out, I decided to take
one back to camp with me. I think
every man in my barracks has read
I noticed a sign on the bulletin
board which read "Poets' Corner."
Cf course, it just didn't make sense
to me so 1 a^ked the director what

It's knowing how to quench your 'hirst plus how to

Quality is the extra something. You'll taste it and

Fifty-seven years of skill working with the choic

for ice-cold Coca-Cola hy its full name or by
everybody's affectionate abbreviation, Coke.
That's treating yourself right.
It's natural for popular names to acquire friendly
