(Under this head The Sentinel ex-'
pects to publish from time to time in
teresting items and letters from Pick
ens county soldiers. We now have sev
eral letters on hand and would be glad
to have others which will be of interest
to the public.)
The following I wish you to let
some of the street walkers of that
town and surrounding country see:
A Word To The Men That Are at
Gentlemen: --Being personally
acquainted with some of you people
I wish to tell you what I and others
think of you.
You know that we are in this war
and have got to win, so come on
across and do your part.
To win this war we have got to
have several things, mainly MEN,
MONEY and FOO). Now gentle
men, you can (10 a lot more over
here with the A. E. lF., than you can
in America, or at least I think so.
It costs almost as much to feed you
in America as it does in France, and
the same food that feeds you in Am
erica will feed you on the man-kill
ing front in France. And there you
can do something for your country
and also show that you are an Am
To be frank with you I don't be
lieve you are going to conic over
here. As I have talked to some of
you all while I wais in America, and
this is a common remark among you.
And it starts with an "IF," if I was
not so small, or large, or had a
crooked toe, or some other trouble
that does not amount to anything,
I would enlist. Others have just mis
sed the (raft by a few months or a
Once more I will be frank with
you.in the first place, it is not the
smallness nor the largeness, flat foot
or crooked toe, it is the YELLOW
STREAK that you have lown your
back. Yes, I have said YELLOW,
and I mean it-YOU have enough
yellow in you to paint a barn.
As for the fellow who is too old,
you have the same chance that I or
any other man had, you could have
enlisted and you ';an still enlist. So
come on across and do your part in
the battle line. Some of you have
talked war ever since the war start
ed "Over here"-and still you walk
the streetss and talk, talk, talk, but
that i's all you can do.
Listen I Now is the time for you
to come to the colors and show the
people what you are made out of.
Don't stay at home and say that
Tom, Bill, or some other fellow will
do your part-that talk or those ar
guments, don't clear you-.
I guess you stay at home and go
for the mail to see what the Yanks
are dloing over here, but how in the
devil you (10 it I can't see. If it
wvere mie I w~ouldl burn the papers.
I couldn't look at them, because I
believe I could feel the yellowv
strealds, when I saw their actions on
thie front and me at home-doing
Now listen, some of you are as
able to (10 soldiers' dluty as any man
in the United States Army, andl ouly
a fewv years over the dIraft age-hut
not over the age of some of the
men in the army, as there are men
in the army that are older than you
are, who have volunteered to serve
their country (luring the greatest
wvar that history records.
MEN, WHAT ARE YOU GOING
TO DO ABOUT IT. Come oni and (do
your part or wear goodl thick clothes
so that the YELLOW will not show
YOU ARE YELLOW-that i's
your DISEASE and the wvay to cure
it is to go to a recruiting ofrice and

Hoping to see some of you !;1
