Thank you for remembering a soldier.
If you did nothing more than send us your school paper you would have done a magnificent deed. (we like to hear about our old friends so much), but you go further than that. You send us all types of gifts; candy, cakes, socks, etc. Bryant certainly has something to be proud of in your organization.
In reading the paper, however, I noted that one group was neglected. That was the girls who, under Miss Collins’ eye served so graciously as dancing partners for the armed forces. Let me say that you girls do a most notable deed in building morale. There is nothing a soldier likes more than to gild [?] the floor with a charming young lady in his arms. And, it must be heaven to have that occasions with a Bryant girl, for Bryant girls have long been known as the [?] of Femininity.
Thanks, once again, and keep up the grand job.
