Donald R. Witt


A number of officer-candidates in the Army and Navy have arrived home on between-term leaves. They will be home from 3 to 10 days, depending on the arrangements of the particular colleges at which they are being trained, and whether or not they transfer to different schools for the next term. Don Marcue was home for 24 hours from Kingman, Arizona Army Air Corps. Jack Koerner, in V-12 at Normal, Ill., will be home until July 1. Donald R. Witt in V-12 at Washington U., Seattle, Wash., is spending his leave there, as otherwise he would spent most of it in traveling. Mark Meis, in midshipman’s school at Columbia University, New York, doesn’t get a leave this time, as there is no break in the training schedule.
