gYour Country means it, too,
when it says that sound health
has become a patriotic duty—
the first contribution of a citizen
who seeks to further the pro
gram of national preparedness.
That’s logical, isn’t it? No
nation, ailing and low-spirited
ever put up an effective defense*
What we need now is energy
nd optimism resulting from
soundhealthandphysicalfitness.
So, may we suggest that you
go and see your Doctor without
further delay. And, of course, we
are well prepared to expertly
compound his prescriptions.

Who would think that a large girl
like G. I. L. would like G. H. L. B.
L. M. D. thinks she’s spiting B. L. D.
but that affair was over long ago.
F. W. thinks that B. L. D. is in love
with her boyfriend, R. L. P. but she
doesn’t care a rap about him as long
as E. M. H. is around. Guess who
were together Sunday, L. M. D. and
L. L. L. All old friends always come
back. V. C. of Crystal Springs think
she tops in F. A.’s world but V. R. L.
knows that isn't true. I wonder who’s
writing all the letters that M. V. L.
has been receiving, it wouldn’t be
from soldier A. C. ? Can you imagine
G. B. liking little F. H. All the jitter
bugs will be swinging to the fair

field. J. M. Li. looks like an old maid
since W. A. has stopped coming

ring with a B on it, wonder to whom
it belongs.
