General Keyes is the present

If he should be sent to a differ

high calibre will replace him. So
the above address is always
I know that those of you who
have received pictures and ad
dresses of certain children or
families would like to mail box
es to them directly. I am sorry
to have to tell you that boxes
mailed directly to those address
es stand little chance of arriving
without first having been looted
of the best articles. Things tak
en out are usually sold to the
black market. Only packages
mailed through the United Stat
es mail service, handled all the
way here only by American post
offices, are sure to arrive safely
Fortunately, we have been able
to arrange it so that your pack
ages can reach those for whom
they are intended, unopened. If
you will write clearly in one cor
ner, in a way that cannot be
rubbed off in such long and
rough shipment, the name and
address of the person or the in
stitution for which it is intend
ed, your box will be taken by a
member of this committee di
rectly to that person or institu
tion. Those of you who have asked
for certain numbers of individu
als of various ages and their ad
dresses and pictures, and have
not yet received them, will per
haps forgive me when I tell you
that for the last month I have
worked as hard as I can every
day, all day long, and late into
the night, trying to get the in
formation you ask and trying
not to let you wait for acknow
ledgment of your letters and
packages but it is more than
one person can handle. I am
about at the point of collapse.
This tremendous response has
been the most surprising and
heart warming experience of my
life. I hope that your interest
in the orphans and the destitute
over here will continue and I
am sure it will when you know
that such women as I have told
you about will take care of the
packages you sent. If you write,
please address your letters to
Mrs. H. B. Hurless, co Colonel
Hurless, Provost Marshal Section,
HQ. USFA, APO 777, New York,

on her committee answers your

Dear Customer we
Is this Christmas shopping wearing you down?
Do you have that gift for Aunt Sue or Brother
Bill? Have you looked for these gifts at Owens
If it's tools that are needed we have a good
selection. Housewares-we are still pretty well
supplied. Toys-they're about gone.
Why not shoot the works and clean up the gifts
for the whole family by buying a refrigerator
or an Arvin radio-or a Zenith washer? They'll
appreciate it, too.
