Our Daily Sykes #153 – A Mountaineers Lecture

Members of WAC gather by the forest to study it and perhaps plan some trails. Some of them wear WAC labels.
Not, of course, to be confused with WACS - here meeting with Conductor (briefly with the Seattle Symphony) Sir Thomas Beecham for a concert or a show-us-the-score at Ft. Lawton in 1942. Note the sign. Smoking was then still often required.

But

Rather to be considered with Horace Sykes - on the right - who also wears a WAC label. (We may have shown this pix of Horace earlier.)

One thought on “Our Daily Sykes #153 – A Mountaineers Lecture”

  1. I laughed when I read the “Smoking” comment. Reminds me of that bit in Woody’s “Sleeper” where doctors in the future have discovered that smoking is the best thing for you (which, come to think of it, isn’t all that funny when you consider that there actually were cigarette commercials in the not-too-distant PAST in which doctors in white lab coats testified to smoking’s many health benefits).
