IDEA BEARS FRUIT
The “ Squander Bug" is that
unpredictable urge which tells
you to go ahead and throw
your money away—that just
buying one more thing won't
udd to inflation, or help create
a shortage of goods. Don’t lis
ten to the "Squander Bug."
He's all set to gobble up every
dollar he can. He thrives on
your extravagance. Starve him
with War Bonds!
— Ninth Service
As the Fourth War Loan
Drive draws to a close, with
Tuesday the last day cash pur
chases may count toward the
total, personnel of Camp Abbot
is urged to buy one more bond
out of its latest pay check.
Since January 1, $78,000 worth
of war bonds have been sold at
this post. The aim is to reach
$100,000, although no definite
goal has been set. This means a
concerted effort and despite the
already fine showing, an even
better one is demanded, officials
Every civilian employee has
made a class A allotment for
war bonds of 10 per cent or over
of their gross day. Fifteen per
cent of the military personnel
have Class A allotments, with
officers averaging 17 per cent of
their base pay and enlisted men
9 per cent.
The Office of the Command
ing General, Ninth Service Com
mand, has just issued an appeal
to “ make the double goal.” It re
ports a participation in the Com
mand of 88.9 per cent, with only
1.1 per cent to go, and a sum
amounting to 9.9 per cent of the
payroll, a mere .1 per cent to go
over the top. “ We've been aim
ing for the goal for a year and
a half. Now let’s go over!”

Aside from being a decorative bit
of art, this shows that even the
lowly snake can get a "break”
once in a while. With a subject
such as this, we can begin to see

Abbot Art Show

Large groups, of aesthetically,
inclined soldiers gathered in the
library and on the balcony of
the service club this week to
view Camp Abbot’s first Art Ex

As evidenced by comments
and interest, the watercolors of
Arne R. Jensen, Publications

pecially the striking “Mass Mur
der,” and the near-funny “ Pots

a striking collection of water

In addition, Angelo Caravaglia
presents his own ink sketches;
