Local boy says the '
country is beautiful
but weather is punk
Dear Mr. Reed:
Thank you very much for your
paper. I received my first copy
yesterday. It was :the August 27th
issue. But was news to me just
the same; I enjoyed it very mua.
The article you printed on the
draftees, first few days in the army
sure hits the nail onthe head.-
Will try and tell you as much
about the country here as I can.
It’s really very beautiful. We sure
don't have any weather like Ken’s
in July. Could stand a little more
Ken weather tho’. They sure gal
in for flowers here, all kinds.
It’s really quite interesting to go
to some of these old historical
places. I have made an effort to
go to most of them in the localities
where I’ve been.
One very odd thing here is the
cemeteries. They are all right in
town. Across the road from one
of these, is a firm dealing in mon
umen’ts. His sign reads: A. Roughly,
with the word “sculptor” below.
The people here are really very
nice to us. They will. go out of
their way to help us out. We really‘
need it too. The streets run every
direction. They are not like ours,‘
in squares. Therefore. it’s very
easy to get lost. Everyone knows}
this except the first sergeants, and
they absolutely won't believe it.
You probably know the result.
Please inform Sgt. Lincoln I don’t I
think 'he knows anything about
meat. Thanks again :for the paper.

Don’t Use Shoebox
For Christmas Gifts
} Don’t mail your Christmas pack
iages to your boys overseas in a shoe
‘box is the advice glven by the post
offloe department. Some publicity
has been given the shoe-box idea,
but it was only to indicate the size
of the package. And 11 you expect
your boys overseas to set your gifts;
’by Christmas, the package must be
mailed not later than the first of
November, the department urges. l
Food and liquids or inflammable
stuff cannot be mailed.
In connection with air mail let
ters for points outside continental;
United States, government reports
show that the volume received great
ly exceeds the available space for
that purpose and that possibly the
military necessity may require that
only official air mail and V-Mail
may be transported by air to these
areas. ~
At present no letter weighing mOre
than two ounces may be sent 'via
V-Mail envelopes may be‘obtained
air mail to foreign countries and as
at the postoffioe without charge, it
is suggested that .patrofis use these
to be sure of getting the quickest‘
service. 1
The Catholic ladies met in a spe
cial meeting .last Sunday evening
to make plans for the annual turkey
dinner which they plan to serve on
Wednesday, Nov. 18, in the base-‘
ment of the Methodist church. A

made later. ~ 1
