American soldiers were losing their romantic technique because European women succumbed too easily to chewing gum lipstick and other material factors stirred up a storm of protest among GTs other nurses and American women The reaction BY STAFF SGT LES DAVID Written for the United Press London nurse from the 59th evacuation hospital moans to Stars and Stripes that all of ficers and enlisted men shes met lunged out with the couchez avec technique without any pre liminaries She says she has gotten more passes hurled at her than a Notre Dame halfback and with no pre paratory signals She says in short that she doesnt like o be swept off her feet First of all whats this babe sore about The time to get really mad is when guys stop making propositions When that time comes this nurse will probably knock off a scorching bit about the aloofness of American soldiers and why arent they friendlier to a gal whowants to get along Women Ive found are like that this gal think we are dummies No real smart wolf is going to come out smack like that with a proposition unless hes pretty sure of his ground Any or any other presents a re served dignified appearance might canse a howl to rise in his throat but if by her action the broad side approach will get said wolf nowhere only a ten karat erk would proceed along such lines In spite of this nurses wail an awful lot of GIs have spent quite a bit of time in the money and effort Does she think all the perfume bought in Paris Is going back home Lets approach this argument from another tack I have no doubt this nurse gels around a whole lot so do some of us guys Chewing gum and chocolate bars may get you into a really good league but with 50other guys in a barracks good news travels fast It takes something more than chocolate to compete with your barracks mates whenthey get ex you do So let nursie forget her worries about GI technique witheringon the vine for lack of get plenty of competition from each other Up to now there have been very few complaints about GI tech nique Such universal acclaim must have some basis in fact Wrigleys and Hersheys arent that good Most of the French girls my friends and I know put us pretty much on a par with French prac titioners of the art and thats something English girls may no care for Spam or dried eggs but theres something they know abou1 Americans now that theyre goini to miss a lot more
