Vol. 2 No. 33 ……. Cover: Wireman Mounted – This is not a cavalryman patrolling the Mexican Border, but a fighter group wireman at work on Okinawa. Sgt. Clifford Kleinhans, like many another soldier on Oki, added something new to the Pacific war – horses. Some soldiers were interested only in the sporting aspects of the horse, but others found them ideal transportation over the island’s tough terrain. Sgt. Kleinhans, with a tommy gun in the crook of his arm and a field telephone slung over his shoulder, rides communication lines looking for breaks. Oki horses, like their owners, cooperated docily with the invading American troops. Photo by Sgt. Fred Shelton …….

Unlike a lot of singers you can think of offhand. Lena does not need to be heard to be appreciated, although it helps. She has one of those voices that is warm like a torch, but most observers find that merely looking at her has a definite torch-like affect. The gal has displayed her inflammable talents around various top-tier night spots, the movies and the wireless. She is reported to have one of the most highly developed wolf-discouraging techniques in show business, an accomplishment which no doubt comes in handy.
