Sees Native "Sing Sing" Celebration on Christmas Day

Pvt. Richard Henry writes his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Emery Henry, the following about how he spent Christmas: "I went to see the natives "Sing Sing," a celebration they have on Christmas day. It's like the Indian war dance, only not quite so many actions. They have lots of dancing and get wild, but the Aussies keep them down pretty well. They were painted up real pretty, at least they thought so. Their faces were blue, their chests yellow, and their grass skirts and legs rust color. They sure like bright colors.

"Well, enough of the natives, and now to tell you what we had for Christmas dinner: turkey, dressing, corn, string beans, buns, and fruit. Not bad, I say. We also got a present from the Red Cross. Mine contained a small fruit cake, candy a small box of raisins and a safety razor sharpener. Not bad, is it?" Private Henry is in New Guinea and is with the army.
