Joyce, Commanding General the IX Army Corps. “While, of course, there were many errors,” General Joyce de- clared. “Yet on the whole. the com- mand demonstrated markedly bet- ter fitness for combat than in previous maneuvers. The tactical plans by large and small units alike were logical and practicable.

In summer’s heat, or in winter's cold, it offers welcome refreshment. It adds a touch of friendliness wherever good friends gather. Brewed from golden grain and fra- grant hops, beer is one of nature’s kind- liest gifts to men. Nourishing and ap- pealing to the taste, beer and ale hold an honored place in the lives of those who are balanced, tolerant, and wise. Because beer is a beverage of moderation'and so great a national favorite, it deserves to have its good name guarded well.
