From Frank Keith
Following letter was received by
Mrs. W. C. Keith of near Pickens from
her son Frank, who is now in France,
serving his country:
June 14, I918.
Dear Mother: Since I haven't any
thing to do this afternoon I will write
you a little.
I have arrived safely at my camp
and am getting along fine. I'm get
ting good eats and plenty of work.
Oscar is here, so it is much better than
being at so strange place by myself.
It is hot here today, and is very dry.
This dry weather does not effect the
crops, as there is very little raised here
except grapes. There are acres and
acres of grape vines, which are very
pretty. The country is very pretty
indeed. I t.raveled a good long way
through France, and it is all very beau
tiful. I haven't seen any cotton and
very little corn here; all is planted in
vineyards an~d small grain. The wheat
is very fine.
We are allowecd to take "liberty
trips" to Bordeaux once a month. This
is one of the largest cities in France.
All the houses I have seen in France
are built of brick or stone. They are
very different from Americani houses.
They have no piazzas at all, and (10 not
look so comfortable as American homes
do. The railroad trains are very dif
ferent from ours. They have coaches
for first, s'econd and third class people,
andl are very odd looking.
The French people are very kind te
the A mericans. There are alwvays little
French children playing around where
we are. They sound very funny speak
ing French. Very often indeed you see
French womnen wearing mourning,
which showvs that they have had hus
band, father or brother killed in the
war. America has not yet realized
what it means to be at war. She will,
however, in the ntear future, 1 think,
begin to feel -the great need of winning
the war. Perhaps some of those slack
era will have a chance to fight yet. I
hope so, anyway. A man who wili
shirk his duty in this war isn't worthy
of being an American citizen. A mn
doesn't realize what a great land and
country he has until he leaves it.
I suppose you al: are busy with the
farm work now. hope the crops are
good. Tell Roy to 'tay at home and go
to school, as that as the best thing for
him to (10. I don't know what I wvill (10
when the war is over. I suppose there
Iwill be plenty of work to do.
The other time I wrote to yo'u I
dlidn't know my address, It is:' U. S.
-Naval Aviation Station, Pavillac,
Gir'onde, lFrance, care P. M.,. New York.
Write me a letter once a week and
b-l me aill about ev'ery thing.

Writes of the Wai
Mr. Editor: Please allow me space
to say something in reference to th<
great war that is now on. First, I wil
say that it is certainly time for action,
for it is daybreak everywhere. Sec
ond, we have no time to lose at all,
although some may he somewhat care
less on account of not giving it
thought as to what a shameful condi
tion we would be in should we not h
successful in this war. Without win
ning the whole world would be on thc
verge of dlestruction. Our aim is t<
rule over no nation: neither are wv<
lighting for want of territory. P resi
dent Wilson notilledl Germany that i
negotiations were further delayed 01
continuedl unsatisfactory the U~nitet
States would be compelled to conside:
what measures it deemed necessary t<
take in order to protect its rights anm
interests. As Germany still pursuet
its policy of delay, then dliplomat(c re
intions were~ sevrered. ~rou readily set
that there is nothing due the fault ol
President Wilson, ns to the wvar.
Germany several years ago mad<1
A ustria an ally: then the triple allianet
was formed of Austria-HI ungary am
Turkey. Now she undertakes to stimi
ulate' a brutish and shameful act t hal
not only the United States cannot af
ford to tolerate, hut the world. Isi
any wonder that under suech circum
stances this war now exists? The
U.nited States is affectedl by the preya
lent spirit of these significant times
but it has a Monroe doctrine which il
very offensive to some of tihe Europear
powers, and it is a fixed purpose 0:
this government to protect her inter
eats and rights at all costs.
So let us, both white and colored, de
8l1 that is in our power to win the war
Lastly, I will say that it takes our hel~
financially, spiritually and politically
Let us all look the same way, think th
same way and speak tihe same way
