The lumber Yard crew are pretty stuck up this week. If you don't believe it, come down and try our gumbo. We would appreciate a little gravel on the main thoroughfares.

A large number of the crew have increased their pay roll bond deductions this week. A number of them would do more if they could purchase direct through some one of our various Depot Department Heads. How do we stack up with other divisions, accordingly, is what we would like to know?

"Tumbleweed" says he is surely grateful to the janitor who acted the Sir Walter Rawleigh part and rescued his wife from the mud yesterday. Otherwise he would have gone to the Mess Hall for macaroni and spaghetti.

Henry Ervin was on the sick list Sunday and Monday.

We hear that one of our former Jack Pine Savages has now become entangled with macaroni and spaghetti department. Good luck, Snix.

Martin Punk and family moved into the Area Saturday evening.

Thanks to Lt. Hendershott, we are having some much needed improvements in our lumber office. The new adding machine was truly appreciated.
