A few days ago we heard from the wife of another PC man. Mrs. E. W. Evans wrote: "At the request of my husband, 1st Lt. Ernest W. Evans ('37), now in active duty overseas, I am enclosing a check to be used as you deem most advisable. "Hawk" often mentions you in his letters, and I assure you of both our interest and good wishes for the future."
Charles Louis Anderson ('38) writes: "... I hope everything points to a successful year ahead of you, and I'll always hold PC dear to my heart, wherever I go. Hope to hear from you soon with more news of PC."
1st Lt. Miles "Hamp" Ferguson ('41), Van Dorn, Miss., writes: "I'm living hard trying to get my G.I.'s trained when they have to attend all kinds of schools, undergo various tests, etc. Half the time I don't even know where most of the company is. ... I'll continue trying to get into the fracas because Drew and Bob will swear they won the war all by themselves if I don't get in my two cents worth. I wish you'd tell me where all my classmates are as I haven't seen a bit of one since two years ago. Please tell me all that you have been able to learn."
1st Lt. Charles B. MacDonald, Camp Blanding, Florida, gives us the following impressions about Blanding: ". . . I'm convinced that it's the original LOST COLONY. If anyone in Virginia claims otherwise, please remember that it's designed merely to deceive enemy bombers. This is THE PLACE. To top things off, one of my trusty re-capped tires blew out Sunday, ripping said article practically beyond recognition. I am having a lovely time staying in camp writing a thesis on the acute recreational problem existing during the army's ten-minute breaks."
On May 4, Capt. Powell "Pop" Fraser ('41) wrote from Australia: "I know life there is much different from the campus life when I was there. I hope PC can pull through these days so that when the war is over no time will be lost in giving to men the only real kind of education in the world."
To Pop and to all of you, I want to say that we of the Home Front will do our best to keep alive that something which has endeared PC to each one of you.
Soon I expect to send you my mailing list, which has grown from 34 for the first letter to over 100 who will receive this letter and the two "back numbers" [Volumes 1 and 2]. Waiting for your letters is like watching for daylight on a Christmas Morning. Good Luck to you all.
