service in the Army he had turn­
ed his attention to the broader
field of engineering and con­
struction, for which his earlier
experience had prepared him.
His study of the structural de­
sign of factory buildings and
complete lay-out systems was
followed by comprehensive re­
ports with recommendations for
increasing efficiency in operation
and production.

losses. Then the Red Army stif­
fened and they scorched their

legitimate stage presentation
staged before a Camp Abbot
audience, was greeted with
warm applause when the Bend
High School student body pre­
sented the three-act comedy at
the Post theatre Thursday night.
Although the play itself was
not an ideal vehicle, being some­
what trite in plot and a little
too shy of the risque element for
the average soldier audience,
members of the cast turned in
performances of a quality not
usually associated with high
school dramatics.
