... WRITES HARRY E. REECE, FROM THE U. S. VETERANS HOSPITAL AT MEMPHIS, TENN. W "On active duty with the Fifth Marines in the Nicaraguan jungles. I went to our field hospital with fever. One day a badly injured Marine was flown in...it was my buddy! "Our small portable generator had failed! Hospital corps men rushed through the dark ward, gathered up flashlights some of the men had there, and with the light from fresh DATED 'Eveready' batteries, the surgeon finished his work. "My buddy returned to duty, is still living and he thanks one swell Marine Corps sur- 2r geon and dependable, dated 'Eveready' bat- I teries. They were the only kind our canteen sold, the only kind that could have taken what we gave 'em. |I ExT NATIONAL CARBON COMPANY, INC., 30 EAST 42nd STREET, NEW YORK, N. Y.
