TUSKEGEE ARMY AIR FIELD

14 December 1943
State Teachers College
Newark, New Jersey
Dont know exactly to whom this should be addressed, but thank you all for the pleasant moments Ive had and shall have looking over the pictures of the activities at the school. Although its been so many years since I attended, the old place had never seemed so close as it does now.
There dont seem to be many men at the school --- the girls there are probably much more aware of that condition than anyone else. However, the girls do certainly look pretty -- especially when youre stationed in a thumbnail town miles from anywhere. I can imagine how much more beautiful they look to the boys in some of the other places on the globe.
I recognize Miss Kane and Mrs. Denny in one of the pictures. Miss Kane looks quite thoughtful --- and who is that sparkling young thing in the middle? Not Dr. Downs, is it?
The pictures bring back some fond memories --- noonday dances --- daily walks once around the garden or twice around Mr. Sloan --- bull sessions with Miss Baldwin --- or heart to heart talks with Miss Thompson -- but brother Al had the corner on the Thompson market.
Thank you again -- and congratulations to Mr. DAngola, since, as I recall he was quite a photographic bug, and I believe he must have had at least a finger in the preparation of this fine collection. Also appreciate your sending the periodical.
Kindest regards and holiday greetings to all.
