HALLOWEEN DANCE PARTY HELD
Camp^ Snelling, Minnesota
November 1, 1934
A very entertaining and gay Halloween
Dancing party, with a barn dance motive,
was given by Headquarters Company CCC at
the Camp Service Club, Tuesday evening.
There was plenty of candied pop corn,
apples and cake to eat, and nany gallons
of apple cider to drink. Our o-m orchestra furnished real snappy music to make
the evening most enjoyable amid decorations of cornstalk, pumpkins and nuraer-
our Halloween designs.
The major it"- of the company attended,
clad in new blue denim' trousers and
jackets. Some of the lads had "steady"
girl friends out, but m-st of the girls
were from the various St. Paul and Mpls,

According to reports a pro-Halloween
Jprank was played on "Meadows" Eklund, .
!:(he of the bird house fame) last Friday
It seems around.8:30 P, M, when he
•and Ells were occupying their time some-
•cne crept up and piled six or seven old
•mess tables in front of the one and
•only door of the humble drmicle.
Imagine Meadow's surprise as he pro-
Spared to go out long about nine and found
•that he was barricaded in. Also, the
■tables were so ingeniusley pii'-.d that he
•would not even open the doer t« push
However, that is his story, A b»ard
:is making a survey to see whether or not
•there is any truth in-the rumor that
•Meadows was secretly pulling tables off
|the bottom of the pile and using the
Iwo^d for bird houses.

SGT. BENNETT TO FARM IN IOWA
UPON RETIREMENT, HE RELATES
"I intend to go to my farm in Iowa and*
farm," That was the reply Sergeant Bennet^
gave upon being asked what he was going
to do when he retires from the Army.
"Sarge" Bennett went on to say that he
will ge down to his 65 acre farm which he'
has owned since 1914 at Ollie, Iowa. His
brother-in-law has been the caretaker
these past years, doing all the chores
and taking care of the cows and ohickens.
Ollie is about 100 miles southeast nf
Cf course the farm will net take up
all of "Mr," Bennett's time. He wi-llm
make numerous automobile trips tack >and
forth. Next Spring he plans a trip to
visit a cousin, his only other living relative, at Lonsdale, Rhode Island, where
he himself was born.
Sergeant Bennett also added that the
members of this Company-were "sure a
mighty fine bunch of boys", and that he
will miss the Company a lot.
