Eugene Ashton, son of the Ceylon Ashtons, instructor at anti-aircraft gunnery station, Pacific Beach, Calif., wishes to thank all his Lowell friends for writing to him.

Dorsey Ruley, G.M. 2/c, writes his parents, the Carl Ruleys, that he is again aboard ship, now being stationed on a patrol craft in the Pacific. Dorsey said he was the only one aboard who had ever been at sea before and naturally, many of the men were very seasick--including himself. But, he added, as soon as he had recovered his "sea legs" everything went along smoothly.

Lowell's snappy all-World War II ceremonial team from Post 101, pictured above, with Congressional Medal of Honor winner Kenneth Duncan acting as Sgt.-at-Arms, will officiate at initiation ceremonies next Wednesday evening at Bendix Aviation Post 284, South Bend. The mass initiation ceremony will be held in the huge John Adams high school gymnasium, which has a seating capacity of 3,000.
The popularity of the Lowell team, the only one in the entire state composed entirely of World War II vets, has been increasing steadily since its formation a few months ago. Thus far they have initiared 493 new members into Posts at Hammond, Gary, Hobart, Rochester and Lake Village. This figure includes many boys initiated into their own Post.
The team has been scheduled for work at Crown Point and Cedar Lake in the near future and will undoubtedly be in demand at Legion Posts throughout the state in the coming months.
