seems to be a decent type, very energetic & busy every second--except when he relaxes to read the "funnies."

This morning we were up at 5:15 A.M.--& out into the darkened parade grounds for calisthenics--the moon was out brightly yet it was so dark we could hardly see the companies in front of us. the exercises were simple enough.

I'm going to try to phone tonight Sat. eve if I can get to a phone--if not, perhaps on Sunday.

Here are some don'ts--no food, no gum, nothing in bottles. that is, don't send me the above items--we're not allowed to keep them in the lockers--

If you can, please send me a *cheap* blue duffle or sea bag ^with drawstrings. no zippers^ like this [small drawing of bag]--I can buy a large one here but only need a small one to put my jacket & miscellaneous articles--more later--

love to Rema & to you--

Irv
