NISS'ETIIEL NELSON MET
BOYS OF THIRTIETH
Fornier Laurens G0r, Now a Trained
Nurse, Meet Old Friends at Le Mans.
How a former Laurens girl and
members of the Thirtieth (Division had
a happy meeting In Le 'Mans, France,
is told of in an interesting story car
ried In The Anderson Daily Mail last
week, the girl being Miss Ethel Nel
son, sister of Mrs. Marion J. Simpson,
of this city, who lived here with rer
uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. S. G.
McDaniel, before going to Anderson to
become a trained nurse. Miss Nelson,
in a letter to a friend at Anderson, tells
of iuls happy experience, the clipping
froma the Anderson paper being as fol
"How would you feel if you had been
in the army for about 18 months, and
had been on overseas service for near
ly a year, and during that time had
only seen thousands and thousands of
khaki-clad soldiers, and then after the
armistice was signed, be comparative
ly loose, seeing lots of French wo
men, pretty perhaps, but who could
not get your line of chatter, and
then, when you were almost in de
apair, run across a real live, dyed in
the wool, American girl and recog
nize her as a lil'ole pal you'd known
all 1your life from Anderson, S. C.?
Oh, Boy, ain't it a g-r-a-n-d and g-l-o-r
"Such was the experience of a nuni
ber of Anderson boys at Le Mans,
where the 30th Division was station
ed preparatory to embarkation, when
they met 'Miss Ethel Nelson, former
ly of Anderson but nov a member of
the American Red Cross;. -Miss Nel
son enlisted in the American Red
Cross and sailed for France some
time ago, and strange to relate one
of her first stations was at a Chateau
at Le Mans, and the troops among
which she was at worf was her own
118th Infantry of the 30th (Division.
"Miss Nelson Is just the sort of girl
that the Anderson boys would like
most to meet away off from home.
She awas one of Anderson's most
popular young ladies, known to a
large part of the 118th Infantry, as
"Bobby" a nickname adopted by her
friends when she was in Anderson
attending school. She went into
training at Anderson county hospital
and was a favorite while in training
and developed into a splendid, com
petent nurse, and had little difficulty
in entering the service of the American
"Miss Nelson, in a recent letter to
Mlsa Zenobia Welch of this city,
tells of her meeting w ith the 30th
Division and of some of the boys
whom she met on the streets of Le
Mans and who visited her there.
"Hor descriptions of the country and
the people were extremely interest
"According to Miss Nelson's letter,
the 3t0h Division had already pro
ceeded to the port of debarkation to
await sailing orders when her letter
