BUY MORE BONDS --- GOOD SCOREKEEPER A Midwestern husband told the courl that his wine fired six shots at him during an argnment.

BOOKS TO RUSSIA "More than ever b;fore, the people ef Russia are desirous of learning the English language, and their only source--BOOKS-were destroyed by the Nazis," was contained in a cable to Dr. Clarence A. Dykstra, Southern California Chairman of Russian War Relief's "Books for Russia" campaign, from Margarita Rndomino who is Di- rector of the Central Library of For- cigu l,iterature in .Moscow. Miss Rudomino explained: "There were 40,000 foreign language books in the Kharkov Library 15000 were Eng- lish; 17,tD0 English vohnnes in Rostov. But now they are gone. The Nazi looting was systematic and ruthless with books of special value removed to Gernmny, and the rest burned if they were Anglo-American Classics." According to l~kstra: "Formation of a special committee is now in pro- cess and we hope to obtain a goodly part of the National Quota for 1,000,000 English language classics which Rus- sian War Relief intends as an Ameri- can gesture of friendship, to be sent to the Soviet Union." He added: "Mrs. Harry ,S. Truman and Bennet Cerf who head the Russian War Relief project nationally ask spe- cifically for books of the type regarded commonly as classics. Contributors must remember that current fiction, translations, text books or those polit- ical or propogandistic are NOT de- sired." All Russian War Relief conunittee branches and Headquarters will receive books for this collection, and many local branch libraries will accept them. --BUY MORE BONDs At Metier, Ga townsfolks gathered in the little Baptist church, prayed for rain, got home in time to watch the first rain in 30 days pour down for an hour on cotton and tobacco fields.

Only lhe first 400 servicemen ',i~ be admitted to enjoy this out- stah(lin~ affair. Tentative plan~ pron> 5so a gay time and delicious fo,d.

The movies at the Casino will follow !he barbecue, and the evening will cuJminate with the I.JSMS street dance at 9:(10 p.m. The Sunday morning Church parties will be the beginning of another full day, and the men are invited to attend :htse services with the girls. After (Thurch the popular "Jab:a-Hour" is in session for all those entering the Club. An "open" afternoon consisting of ~]ass bottom boat rides, tennis, golf- ing, fishing, hiking, ping pong, swim- mmg, or just talking. The I.J.S.O. dance Sunday night will start at 7:1)t) p.m. instead of 8 o'clock. This will give the trainees an extra hour of dancing. A "juke box" dance will continue from l0 to 11 for those who remain in the Club. Dr. Erickson was presented with a surprise birthday cake last Sunday evening while conducting the "com- munity sing" for the men at the Club: With such short notice the U.SO. did not have time to fully show Dr. Erick- son their appreciation. The whole Club joined in singing "happy birth- day" to a grand person. Last Saturday night a stranger came into the U.S.O. asked if she could play the piano for the boys. In no time at all she was surrounded by an enthusiastic crowd c4 men some sing- ing, some listening, but all having a good time. After many, many requests were answered, she said good-bye and left. She was Mrs. Thehna Weddle of Los Angeles who was just visiting Avalon. We're sure there are many in this connnunity who have a special contri- bution to offer the servicemen at the U.S.O. Let us hear from yon soon by catling Mrs. Al Bombard at 155, or coming in person to the U.S.O. Piano playing may not be one of your talents, but there is a need for your services. Do come down! ----REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR SOME "PICK-UP" "/'raveling at a sl)eed of two hundred miles an hour, an airplane from the mainland Monday collected a sack of U.S. Mail at the Buffalo Springs air port.
