— Many versions of the “exchange” are floating around. We pay little attention but they are good to listen to despite the part that there isn’t any logic in the whole thing. The Rumor has now reached its peak — 30,000 on the way out here & we are to be out by May 23!!!! So you can see how they stretch one little rumor. Assigned to go out with ration details soon. Rumor — Generals & Col’s to be moved elsewhere — Back a bit better but still extremely weak.
