Re: Indians
    On the way over to the Club 40 meeting I went thru Matawa-Vantage.
It brought back many memories. Back in 1943, Railroad Robert Snapp,
head of the transportation stuff at Hanford took several of us up the
south and west side of the Columbia from Hanford to Beverly where we
crossed the railroad bridge (still there) on planks laid for autos. 
A little scary, but it worked. We came back on the other side of the
river and crossed back on the Corfu-Hanford ferry. Along the way 
on the south side we came upon Indians at Priest Rapids, living in
wikiups. I told Hal Ludwig, Jim Domrose and Ed Johnson (all '45) about
them and they went up an bought a cayuse for about ten $. I don't know
what happened to that horse, except that it didn't win the Kentucky

Re: Dorms
    I did not realize that ANY of the dorms were used for married 
couples. I knew that had dorms for the teachers. That must have been 
later because many of the married couples had to take rooms in the 
dorms as single persons. Our neighbor was a patrolman in Richland and 
he said it was not the teenagers they caught "necking in the cars" - 
it was the couples who lived as a single person in the dorms and had 
no other place to have sex.
    My dad used to repair radios. One of the women I worked with (and
lived in the dorms) asked if he could repair her radio. She brought it
to work - when daddy fixed the radio he went to her dorm and no one
was around. He yelled a couple of times and walked up the steps to her
room. Fortunately he did not encounter anyone and she got her radio
and he ran back down and got into his car and beat feet.

            storm during our Club 40 meeting at the library Saturday.

    Did you hear about our friend, Dick McCoy ('45), being asked by a 
Col-Hi English teacher to use the word, "fascinate," in a sentence?
He replied: "I had overshoes with nine buckles on them, but I could 
only fasten eight!"
    Sorry about that!

To: Jim Jensen ('50)
    You should have broken ranks and come on over to see me at
Keesler. I was playing basketball for Keesler in January of 1953. We
played in the World Air Force Tournament in Syracuse N.Y. that March.
Sorry I missed you in England. I was at Chicksands AFB in Bedford
England from June '53 to Dec. '55. Yes Bonnie ('45-RIP), my sister 
told me of the meeting you two had at the Club 40 Party. You probably 
know that Bonnie passed away in Nov. 2001.
    We sure did have fun playing baseball for Rish. Good hearing from 
you, my dear friend.

    Hi Neighbor!! Boy did we have a lot of spin Baseball Games, and a 
lot of stick ball in the streets on Abbot Street. You just don't see 
the spin Baseball games around anymore.
    Hope everything is well with you.

Re: Trip To Italy
    I will be leaving for Rome tomorrow and hope to confirm all the
good things I've heard from other Bombers that have made that trip. 
If any of you happen to be in Rome from April 26th to May 4th, look 
me up at the Sonya Hotel, near the train station in Rome.

Bombers Cheers

Re: Registration and Jerseys
    Just a reminder to register for the Basketball tournament this June.

    Also, many of you who did not play in last year's tournament 
wanted to know what the jerseys looked like. I have posted a picture here:

    Remember you cannot get shorts or put numbers on jerseys after May
23rd, so if you want a number, please send in your application early.

If you have any questions, let me know.
