The shwere would turn from hot to cold and from cold to hot. One often traversed the entire camp, searching for a shower room with hot water. At our particular shower, there would always be odl women walking in at odd (and embarassing) moments to fill their pails at the faucets. [?] were tacked up on the walls and used for the most part went unheaded."
