OPENING

MUSICAL VARIETY IS PREVALENT WITH JERRY GRAY ARRANGEMENTS

The Glenn Miller band under the direction of TISgt. Ray McKinley played before a more than capacity crowd here at the Group Playhouse on the night of June 13th. They really turned out a super show and the playhouse fairly rocked with thousands of feet keeping rhythm with the music which was both hot and sweet. The band was given such a tremendous ovation that they promised to come back for a repeat performance on June 29th. There will be plenty of transportation provided so that all troops may have the opportunity to hear this great band.

BIG THINGS TO COME IN ENTERTAINMENT
The Group Playhouse here on the post will be the scene of a lot of great entertainment by A - 1 entertainers in the future. The Glenn Miller, Harry Owen and Marlene Dietrich shows were just a sample of what's to come.- As you have already read in the S&S, there are beaucoups of big stars either here now or on their way over here and you can bet that, The Special Service' officers are going to book all of them that they can, so keep your eyes on the bulletin boards and also on the "Post" for announcements of coming shows.


Movies Deluxe We have heard from a very reliable source that the Playhouse .35 mm projection booth will be in full operation within the next few days. The main problem will be securing the film but all available scouts are on the lob. So please have patience and we will soon have picture shows lust like back home; no stops for changing reels - just one swell continuous show.

THE SPEARHEADING BN. OF A SPEARHEADING ARMY
Throuqh France we traveled With "The Spearheading Ghost," General Patton's ,4th Armored Div, Our comrades and host Crossing 'the stream At many different sights,' We bridged the Moselle, For the Ghost, at nights While eighty eights were planted By our enemy foe, Landing at our feet, With a devastating blow. Finally we' landed In "The Bulge" you know, Defending little Luxemburg, Our men alkl adore. Our friends of Mersch We left with regret; Their hospitality and courtesy ! shall never forget. Then one day The Colonel said, Men we have a river, Not far ahead. On into Germany From, this river's banks, But oh! what a detail, For many good Yanks. In tribute to the ones Left on "The Saur," We reverently respect, Those soldiers of the hour. They fought with a spirit Of courage and esteem, 'To save our country, From the Nazi regeim. Through "The Siegfried Defenses" We blasted our wqy, To join the Ghost, One future day. This time we are rolling To the Moselle once more, The crossing was easy, On a comparative score. On to the Rhineland Traveling in a train, We caught the master race, Retreating in vain. They saved a few shells For our crossing at the Rhine, But the targets they hit Were all out of line. Finally we landed On the Czech border, When the radio announced The change of an order. The war was over in the E.T.O. If you have 85 points Homeward you go. Specialist at spearheading the stream, Endowed with courage unforseen With honor and high esteem, I hail this "Engineer Combat Team" Fraternally yours, PFC ??????? 150 Engr. Bn.
