WE WANT YOU TO REMEMBER
Write home to mother every week.
YOUR REC. HALL Last week, an incident occurred which we regret to put into print, but to prevent a recurrence of similar incidents in the future, we find it necessary to paint you a sad but true picture. Two keys were broken on our piano in the Recreation Hall. Evidently not thru carelessness or accident, but deliberately in a vandalistic attitude. In all probability someone walked past the piano and noticed that the keys were not locked or under cover, struck down at them with his fist. An exact reason or explanation for an act of this nature is hard to determine. It merely shows the absence of sound thinking ability. This piano was BOUGHT for our use and entertainment -- if you cannot play it, or do not find any pleasure in attempting to learn to play, it is only courtesy to your friends that you do nothing to contribute to the piano's destruction. Some of us have the feeling that we never get very much here in the CCC and yet at the same time we show little appreciation or regard for the things we do have. THE ROUGH USE THE POOL TABLE GETS TENDS TO CONFIRM THIS OPINION. Unless we show some appreciation for what we do have, you may rest assured that we shall get few additions to our Hall in the future. Let us make our camp a HOME, second only to the one we left when we joined the CCC, and take as good care of what we have here as we did of those cherished belongings we left with MOTHER and DAD! --Associate Editor

Co. 2590 bows to Co. 3512 after a hard played game. The game ended to the tune of 5 to 4. The very next day, Co. 3512 bows to Co. 525 with a score of 11 to 5. The game started out all White Sulphur. Due to timely hitting and errors of Cranberry, Co. 3512 was able to forge ahead disregarding the All-Star CCC American pitching of OXLEY. The ease with our team of hitting OXLEY, made them over confident and our errors paved the way in the 7th for victory to Co. 525. We realize our mistakes now and can assure then that the next game will be played differently.
SOFTBALLERS LOSE OPENING GAMES The softballers seem to be off to a bad start. The first game was won by Co. 2590 by a score of 21 to 10. Both teams showed ragged playing. The second game taken by Co. 3510, score was 27 to 12. The results show that our team needs more practice -- every night should be practice night. INTER-BARRACK LEAGUE NEEDED
What do you say about having games with each barrack? Would you favor an inter-barrack league? This league would include Softball, Volleyball, Pool, Ping-Pong, etc. If you are interested, please let us hear your remarks. We have great desires to see you enjoy yourselves! -CARPENTER
