Excitement ran high the other day
when a telegram was received from
Joe Woods, telling the bunch that he
hart taken the fatal step. Numerous
bets were made as to whether the
telegram was a fake or not, but
e/eryone is firmly convinced now
that he has dived head-first into the
sea of matrimony because he is back
and has a smile from ear to ear that
only a death sentence could take

At a Fish “pen” the other day

“Heavy” Miller dashed into Web

We wondered why Lee Hugon has
had such a depressed look the last
few days, but upon questioning we
learned that “She” had betrayed him

him for leaving it at the post office.

COMPANY “F” NOTES.
We regret that Captain E. C.
Ward is at present confined to the
Hospital. The Company feels the
loss of his presence very much. We
confidently expect for him f to be
back at his regular place of duty
within the next few days or so.
Meanwhile, Lieutenant Kirkland has
charge of the Company.

The seqpnd platoon, Lieutenant Parke

platoon, Lieutenant Kirkland in
charge, took fh’st place wjlhile the
second platoon, Lieutenant Ragsdale
in charge, was the winner of the 3rd
place on the 10th. We are proud
of these winnings and are determin

other companies to surpass us.

Of his boyhood days on the farm,
Josh had many pleasant memories and
some that were not so pleasant. There
was a day, once, when he was show
ing the farm to a friend of his—quite
a close friend, in fact—and when they
came to the pasture there were two
cows licking each other’s faces. Bear
in mind the fact that this friend was
a close one. This is what they said:
Josh: “I wish I could do that!”
The Girl: “Why don’t you?
They’re your cows!”—Voo Doo.
