The Coraddi, Vol. 39 : November, 1934 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Coraddi, Vol. 39: November, 1934 Was I sick yesterday! And were the other forty-nine boys in my outfit suffering! The canteen was opened for the first time yesterday and the Officer in charge (a thrifty soul) decided to save the U. S. A few cents by opening only the chocolate counter. When all the choco late was gone, 'be figured he would open the other divisions. Besides that, only the Officers could buy things because of the confusion that would result if men tried to buy chocolate at once. The fifty men in our section gave an Officer two dollars each! We told him to buy us something to eat! The result was chocolate, one hundred dollars worth Of chocolate. As I write the word, my stomach turns! I called the attack sea-ache fever; it was a combination Of sea sick ness and stomach-ache, with a sprinkling of chills and fevers thrown in. The cure for it has never been compounded. Time will heal all things. The decks and bunks were streaked with digested (or rather undigested) chocolate, and men were trading six bars Of chocolate for two pills. A fine time was had by all!
