Quarters to Get
Gmood Cleaning LUp
(By Dee Tach)
"One hundred brooms, 100 mop rags,
96 buckets, and 50 brushes," yelled
the quartermaster to one of his as-
sistants yesterday afternoon as the
Han. scribe entered quartermaster's
office of the training detachment.
"Check!" returned the assistant.
There was a dearth of news on the
detachment beat and the scribe was
anxious to make good. Up to this
time nothing "broke" to make a good
story. These words fell almost un-
consciously on the ears of the re-
porter, for they almost went in one
ear and caime out the next. However
the phrases stopped long enough for
the scribe to realize that this was a
story.
Yes, the above consignment has
been received by the quartermaster
for the purpose of giving the detach-
rient a thorough cleaning up. A large
number of the men will be assigned
the duty of making the "camp" spot-
less before the middle of next week.
When the work is finished the author-
ities will have an opportunIty to rate
the sanitation conditions of the de-
tachment 99 3-4 per cent.

swung around a curve on Albiop's

ten off the car and .stopped to buy two
papers. He started to give one to a
soldier on the car and his act of kind-
ness caused the injury.
