is no chance to lose for all payrolls
show I've purchased them and s

It. While we are In rest camp we do'
nothing but- rest. Our" detachment
has fhe best quarters of the regiment,

beds and bur mess shack Is-close by.
We ar allowed a pass each day to
a nearby city hut T haven't been there

with the Y. M. C. A.' entertained us
and put on another show this after
noon. They promised -to come again
next week. Believe me. It's good to
