Believe it or not–I am back in th editorial business again as associate editor of the regimental newspaper. The Colonel was disatisfied with the paper because it lacked life & humor so a reorganization of the staff took place and I was drafted as an associate editor. Right now the big dispute is whether the men are sufficiently interested in world n ews or whether the new paper should give more space to persoals, jokes, humo, etc.
Incidentally, we have a new Colonel. On the second day of fighting [May 12th] Colonel Earle was killed. I have already written you that all enemy resistance has ceased with the complete defeat of the Japs. All your old friends are well–even Jck Carroll who has recovered from a bullet in the rumble-seat for which he received the Purple Heart.
