Hi you all,

Thinking of you.  Am here on staff on the Girl Scout Roundup.  You'd never believe this set up - the Army is much in evidence.  They've set this place up - am sleeping in one of their tents.  Hope you've seen some of our publicity so you'll know what I'm talking about.  Lots of N.C. (North Carolina) girls around.  Love Betty.
