Florida Trip—Continued Our second Sunday in Gainesville, Mr. and Mrs. Grismore took us for a drive out to the University section of the city which is located in the western outskirts of the town. It is the State University for men, the women are located at Tallahassee. The campus comprises 92 acres, we were told, and is beautiful in its tropical setting of palms and pines, although we noted some maples that were out in leaf and other deciduous trees of our northern variety. Some of the trees were decked with the (Un/ftd Nerf ions Photo) graceful plumes of moss which are always a part of the tropical land scape. Oak trees, especially seem to harbor it, although it seems to grow everywhere. The buildings on the campus were of red brick and were well placed with graceful drives winding among them. Many lovely fraternity houses were seen on neighboring streets and the campus as a whole reminded us of Miami University in Oxford, O., except that Miami is crowded up into much less space. The normal attendance is 3500. We have learned since our return that a son of Mr. Henry Gratz who married the former Vera Rogers, is employed as bacterioligist at the State University. We are sorry that we did not meet them and learn more about the University and the work done there. New! Revolution fortified with new] Come inJ^Gec cod'vincing The undersigi dence 1 mile wesi Waldo Hofstetten Auctioneer, Cly THURSDAY, MARCH 29, 1945 The Service Center is built of white stucco and was constructed especially for the use of the ordinary army or navy man, an officers club is maintained at the Hotel Thomas. It is located in a park section near the business section but in a quiet setting and comprises a large lounge furnished with davenports, easy chairs, a grand piano and a snack bar in the rear where food is fur nished by the various churches. A small balcony is equipped with writ ing desks where picture post cards and all writing materials are furnish ed free to the men and there are about 500 volumes of good books on all subjects as well as the late novels and all the late magazines for their use. There were a couple of small rooms equipped with phonographs where small groups could gather, a check room where clothing and par cels were cared for, equipment for shaving and at the rear a very large hall that had a stage in one end, several pool tables, card tables with every kind of game you ever heard of, plenty of chairs and the hall could also be used for dancing by clearing of chairs and tables. One group was outside playing archery and some were loafing comfortably on the outdoor balcony. Sweethearts, wives and families of the men are welcomed here and cared for. Camp Blanding, one of the larger camps of the South is located about mid way between Jacksonville and Gaines ville and many soldiers and their families are scattered about the town. A neighbor and friend of the Grismores is one of the hostesses at the Service Center and it was through her that we were privileged to spend an hour there and see everybody in action. I took off my hat to Gainesville and its citizens when I saw the fine work they were doing. Those boys really felt at home and were singing, eating and playing much as they would in their own home. One curly headed baby was asleep on a daven port with father and mother reading in easy chairs near by—just a little home scene. IT MEANS EXTRA PROFITS FOR VW.!
