These are from the collection of LCDR (mustang) Edward Ross Morris, USN, who served between 1921 and 1953.  AMM1c Morris was a survivor of the crash of the zeppelin USS Macon  (ZRS-5) off Point Sur, Calif. on Lincoln's Birthday in 1935.  He was stationed twice at NAS Lakehurst during his career and was stateside during WW2.

A WORD ABOUT THE PLOT

 

    This play concerns Mr. Tom (Corn-Fed) Turkey, a big feather and duster man from

    The scene of action is the USNAS, Lakehurst, NJ, on Thanksgiving Day, at high noon.

    An enthusiastic committee, (all hands), welcome "Tommy" and "His Gang" aboard, with

    knives and forks at "Present Arms!" . . . . Now the fun begins!

 

CAST OF CHARACTERS

 

    The various members of the cast are listed in the order that they come over the gangway.

    If our star appears a bit uneasy, the management knows that our audience will not judge

    him to harshly . . . . . . . Let's go on with the show!

 

OVERTURE

 

    "Celery Soup and Crackers," a Symphony, sung by the entire audience, without silencers.

                                                                            . . . . Let joy be unconfined!

I picked this copy of the "Wing Ding" several years ago.  At first I thought it was a theater made Thanksgiving invitation but upon closer inspection it is an invite for a monthly gathering of officers based upon a practice started by Gen. George Washington and further promoted during WWII by Brig. Gen. Hodges.
