What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

From now on I go strictly on the idea that anybody I see in open lots may be a general for all 1 know. Personally I wood not poke no fun at a general on a golf coarse any how on account of I like to see them there. The farther a general is from the camp the less times I get in­ spected. This is a war of decep­ tion, ma, and where can a general find more deception than on a golf linx? It is also a war of movement and you don’t know what move­ ments are until you see a middle- aged duffer going into his golf swing. Generals need exercise like any­ body else but if he is seen walking on a highway he loses face. The only place he can be seen hiking five or ten.miles a day without be­ ing disgraced is on a golf coarse so I don’t see no sense criticizing Gen­ eral Lear for being on one that day. GAS WILL STOP ^ ¿ c k i n o JUSTA POR SPOONPUL MV WIFE.» TOO BAD “Jim'is still driving his old bus.” / ‘Yes, says he can’t get another till heV.paid for that one.” • Wrong Suggestion The bore'had more than outstayed his welcome and at the end of a fortnight, his weary host thought of a sure way, he hoped, to geKrid of him. “Don’t you think your wife and family must be lonesqme when sep­ arated so long from you?\ he in­ quired of the unwanted visitor. “It had not occurred to me,” said the latter, springing to his feet, “thanks for reminding me. I’ll use your telephone at once and ask them to drive down and join me here.” TWO OF A KIND «■-¿T;. - ------------ - I Crow—Ha, ha, so your wife won’t let you in either.. The outfit I am with is very good mannered and wood not yell at no golfers in a ungentlemanly manner. A couple of weeks ago we was pass­ ing a linx and Otto Bixby yelled at a duffer but he was so deep in a trap he could hear no voices unless they were from China. There was a few women, players in shorts and at first I thought they was fugitives from ladies’ day in a turkish bath. We phid no attention to them, not even one yoo hoo and the ladies seemed soarer than if we had paid some notiss to ’em. Women may get soar if soldiers yell at them but they mind it worse if they snub ’em. There was a very pompous looking man looking for a lost ball near the highway witch we marched on and one of the boys made some re­ marks like “Looking for something, mister?” and “Did you try under the bureau?” He did not think much of -it then but ever since reading about the General Lear incident he has been scared stiff for fear the man was a officer and got his descrip­ tion. • * * • Personally I think General Lear is getting Worse punishment than his troops and I bet he wishes he never played golf in his life. I think peo­ ple are rubbing it in. Dissipline is dissipline in a army and most of the boys here do not think a army should give Bronx cheers to nobody on the line of march and espeshully not to ladies no matter if they wear shorts or whoopskirts. This' is a all out war but we should not be all out of manners. We don’t even wave at nobody no more becuz for all we know it might turn out to be Secretary Stimson or Mrs. Roosevelt. The Lear thing maid the army awful careful. But I hope the people let up on General Lear becuz I hear he had plenty of excuse for being upset. I hear he was nine strokes on a par four hole and still 125 yards from the green when the soldiers yoo hooed^ And not only that but he had gave his opponent a stroke a hole. Anything wood’ve made him soar. Well so much for that. I got the heavy sox in case I get to Iceland. Tell Irene Mahoney if I get to Ire­ land I will look -up her old man. Love, - ' Oscar. Not much headway can be found in making the world fit to. live in again until somebody invents a tank-proof treaty or develops a hog-proof man. Beautiful models have paraded in a style show before the draftees at Camp Upton. The* idea is to show the soldiers what the well-dressed Iceland woman will not wear. • « 25-CENT SPECIAL \ There’s one thing I can’t do, I’ve found, < No matter how I try.
