Arlington, July Editor, The Times Dear Mr. Carpenter: I am inclosing a letter from our son, Lou, who is in the Ar- my, stationed at Ft. Jackson near Columbia, S. C. I would like to bring to your attention and to the readers of The Times a matter that, it seems to me should be given some public no. lice. I am probably, very biased on this, and as I have considerable respect for your judgment and impartiality, I hope you will de- lete any part of this letter that seems to you to be uncalled for or unfair. Lou has been in the Army since February. He expects to get a furlough some time in August. In a previous letter he says that the maximum length of the furlough will be ten days, with no travel time--by order of the commanding general. and put on fresh clothes and in about my plane ticket now, too. about 15 minutes you can wring[ Hold on to your hat! It really water out of them just like,theylisn't as much as I had expected, had been in a pail of water, but it sure is a lot. I went to one flint's no kidding, place and asked and they told Well, I didn't get home much me $346 round trip. So I had last week. We were out on biv- ouac for' two nights and three days. The third day when we got back to the camp, and I was planning on coming home. they told us that our company had guard duty, and it was my luck to catch it. So I had guard du- ty for 24 hours and got home Friday night. We are supposed to come in this week for the 4th, but otherwise we are supposed to be out all week. So I won't get in much this week either. Well, it won't be very long un- til we will be REALLY HOME. Margie is going to leave the 29th of this month. That way she will be there by the time I get there. I think I have found out Margie ask at Eastern Airline when she was in town, and they told her the same thing. So I called up the airport office of Eastern Airline and thy told me $301 and that if I took the air- coach one way it would knock off about $25 more, so I said sure I would, and I asked if I could take it both ways, but they said that I couldn't. I don't know why. So it should cost around $275 or $280. I'll check again to make sure. The aireoach is a plane that doesn't serve meals and they don't have stewardess service, l But for the extra $25 I don't need that. The plane leaves here at 6:00 at night and gets there at 2:0, the next afternoon. ing the regular fl leave at the same there at 6:00 the but for that it isn't worth the either. Well, I don't more to write no~. again soon. We the other day, with the picture lure was pretty and Margie. P. S.: Have a go0o we were there. man, Betty Bosworth and Jean ~,~ORM.
