HEAT IS FOILED
District's Civilian Soldiers
Raise $100 Fund for Ice
DRILLED IN THE SHADE
Hard Boiled "Non-Corns
Take Pity on Men Not
District National Guardsmen encamped
at Camp Lee. Va.. may be
missing a few of the comforts of
civilian life, but they are not going
without that hot-weather medicine?
ice cream. One of the first things
the men did when they landed in
their temporary theater of war ^aa
to start a collection for "extra"
chow, "extra" meaning those things
that the army does not think absolutely
necessary to military training.
With the 1100 quickly raised within
the outfit, the canned coolness is
now being served each day. And
now ice cream time is one of the
most important hours on the bugle
1-Ivrn >on-rom* Arr Kind.
Although strict attention was paid
to snappiness in drill yesterday, even
hard-boiled non-coms of the veteran
class looked with a certain degree
of kindness upon the guardsmen,
who were not yet "acclimated" to
the sudden change to camp life, and
saw that their men happened to
drill in the best shade available.
Minor cases of sunburn and sore
arms and backs developed in the hot
"Virginia sun. but a few minutes'
visit to the camp infirmary has
proyen to be the worst the strenuous
life has inflicted upon thtse
undergoing the annual "roughing It"
To Dance >:itnrday Nifibl.
Band concerts which the men are
enjoying tarh night are to be supplemented
Saturday night by a National
Guard dance at the post exchange.
Gen. Bundy has ordered a
Y. M. C. A. hut near the guard camp
to be reopened, and the men are
finding it a great convenience.

You saved iny life! How can I ever repay you?"
A lite guard at the Tidal Kasin saves many lives every sum- j a
mcr, but it isn't otten that he is addressed in that fashion. The j I
sad part of it is that those words weren't spoken to Joyce Lcvvy j*
A woman stepped off the beach into deep water one day and
immediately became frightened and started to drown. Her male ! r
companion, who remained in shallow water, added his cries to hers. <
Joyce dived and brought her back. She flung her arms about jc
her companion's neck and li> sterically cried out the above. The ia
lite ?Miard went back to his position unthanked. i?
is i> Jo\ce I.ew v's second season at the Tidal Basin; he is M
_'i year> old and comes from Birmingham, Alabama. Last winter |/
got lour letters from Howard College in that State. By way i*
ot showing the Washington boys how good the athletes grow iii
the South, he took on Hugh Johnson one day tor a sprint and
.j beat him. Johnston i> another guard and captain of Central !a
High School track team. r
Joyce learned to swim in Cuba, but prefers fresh water to ^
j-alt water swimming. He won the District championship here \b
: last year and then went home and won a Southeastern champion- I"
ship. He's got a flock ot medals. is
He >a>s that Washington swimmers arc better than those ot j*
j Birmingham, and lie ought to know, lor he was a life guard down
I there tour years before he carjie up here last summer.
And yet there arc women who come up to his stand, look ! v
at the words 'Lite <?uard" on his jersey and ask: if,
