Sheppard Field Texacts (Newspaper) - July 14, 1945, Sheppard Field, Texas Safe he Doy july 14, 1945sheppard Field Tex acts Page the Fly coming to of by set. Johnny Fryer a a in a going to sit right Down and write myself a letter department it seems that regulations forced Cap. Arite Bowling assistant Post adjutant to request of himself in writing to Send himself an endorsement in answer to his own question of Why he had missed calisthenic. At the time Captain Bowling was acting Post adjutant so that was the Only Way he could handle the situation. We Hope that his written answer to himself was convincing. In last weeks exacts Here was a write up about pfc. Lou Fuchs and his a sad sack musical program Over the Field a system. It told How he had worked out a radio show at another Post and shipped before he could hear it. Well poor Lou the sad sack session Al a went on shipping orders again. Lots of Luck Lou and let us hear from you after a hectic radio rehearsal program personnel Are now Happy to know that shirts torn under the Strain of emotion and buttons popped in the stress of preparing to get a a on the air can be repaired right in service club no. 2 where our Fields broadcasts a e produced and a a piped to the lbs affiliate Kwit we wonder if the sewing activities group of the officers wives club which is now established upstairs in this building had the radio performers in mind when thursday from 8 30 a.

You have seen his name written in a variety of places mostly on Walls. Ile Al it Tojiu ways states with evident Pride that Kilroy did this or that or that a Kilroy was All we can do is theorize. We suspect that c plus. Harry Colson and Phil Garland of the 78th know something because the serial number 19112184 appeared in connection with Kilroy in last weeks a acs squib. But they will not talk. They just smile. Since one theory is As Good As another we submit that Kilroy is a relation of George Spelvin. Often when an actor plays two roles in the same drama his real j pears on the program opposite one of the characters and Spelvin appears opposite the other character. But Quot Spelvin despite his frequent appearance in this fashion is said to have been a Rea person. He is believed to have been the rear end of a Clown horse act. We detect a similarity Between Kilroy and is Ely in and base our theory on the fact that behaviourism seems to run in families.
