It’s not what you think: Rosalie, a burner in a Tacoma shipyard, married Jack, the leadman shiplifter, after they met and fell in love working on No. 1 hot slab. And while we’re having a lighter moment as the war drags on and the draft widens, a civilian defense team in Detroit wanted a realistic drill of a tear gas attack. So they released the gas in an open-field, meant to provide a realistic demonstration of what it would mean to civilians, also reached laughing hyenas at a nearby zoo – who started crying. In other news, the Fort Sheridan Rockets and the Camp Grant Crickets, both WAAC teams, will play the first-ever public softball game. Also, baby buggies are in very short supply. If you have one you don’t need, please donate it.
