Thanks for your letter, I was certainly glad to hear from the School and the news of the boys in the service.

I was sorry to hear of the boys who have had their final transfer, and hope with you that those reported missing will turn up after spending some time on a desert island without Hedy Lamarr.

Thank you anyway for the fellow who got my cigarettes. I was spending a couple of weeks fishing, and we have an agreement that any packages for boys on fishing trips are opened and shared, and I guess they forgot to tell me.

On the first of May my CO was kind enough to recommend me for first class. It went through and I have no doubt the business staff would be interested in hearing of it.

I would be interested in getting the addresses of those fellows who were in my B. B. A. evening division class and are now in the service. I met Mello when I first went in, but have no idea where he is now. Some of the others are probably in one branch or the other and it would be interesting to where and what.

Very truly yours
Marshall M. Fowler
