Some time ago the story gained
some ground on this reservation
that Louis Roy. son of Joseph
Roy of Beaulieu, had been shot
and his body sent to his home here
for hurial. The following letter
however proves that he is very
much alive aud "doing his bit" for
Uncle Sam "over there. The lettei
follows:
"Somewhere in France,
April 7th, 1918.
My Dear Sister:

that I am now over here, also to
tell you that I am well and that

everything is turning green, the
gardeu stuff growing, and sister I
wish you could see this country
some time. How are all the rest
of my sisters? Give all my old
friends my best wishes. Love to
you and all. Good bye.

French Decorate Edward
Dickel For Bravery.
'From the Seattle Star, April 22,
1918, we take, pleasure in quoting
the following excerpt: ^"For brav
ery on the battlefield of France,
where they drove bullet-riddled
ambulances under shell fire for
nine days, and went six days with
out sleep or rest, two University
of Washington men were awarded
the Croix de Guerre in Paris to
day. They are Lieut. Albert
Smith, son of Mr. and Mrs. Geor
gia Smith, and private Edward
Bickel. son of Mr. and Mrs. Wil
liam F. Bickel, 155 Highland
drive."
Mr. Edward Bickel will be re
membered by many of the village
people here where he lived with
his parents his father being con
nected with the former Chippewa
State Bank. The paper states
that "all of Seattle is proud of
him," and the people of this vil
lage likewise are pleased to learn
of his worth and bravery and
which secured him the coveted
trophy.
