H. J. CONNELL The Recall Drussut great manufacturing plants where millions of uniforms are turned out, and the enormous shoe factories where the army shoes are made. , In every department one sees evidence of speed and still more speed. One sees the electric knife which cuts out CO uniforms at a single stroke. The ordnance plants are shown where big guns are turned out and the great shells are manufactured. Later the scene shifts to the government ship yards where the launching of some of the big steel boats is shown. One is impressed with the fact that Uncle Sam has taken seriously the business of making war and that every possible resource will be utiliz ed to bring the conflict to a speedy and successful conclusion.

I only wish I could write what I would like to as there are so many things that would be of interest to you back there. I received a letter from Paul Harrington yesterday. I know about where he is stationed, but not exactly. It's too bad about Merle Fetting captured by the Boche. But guess they have gotten quite a few.

The Frenchmen have . a big trap that they catch' them in. I read about Pat McCoy and he is right about the rats. I haven't seen Lee for several days. Bet I "know where he is. Just see Charlie King go by. Well this is a long letter f 01 me. I will close, with 'lots of love and the best of wishes, from ytmr son and brother, , Pvt. FJoyd A. Piersonl Over Here. June 24, 1918. My Dearest Mother1 and Sister: I am going to try and write a few lines to you this morning. It is rain ing again today the same as usual. Just came back from getting grub. We had French friends for dinner to day. I have learned to eat most ev t thing since 1 left home except rab bigo and tomafoes and never will like tho.?c. We are working everv kiy and part of the night. I wish you could see our heme. We have n dug out; it's not bad at all. Say I ,rave a fellow that I'm with all the vvlvb Tina Benton's "r.ddress. '. I houe bhc vi ltcs h'm. Well, Ma, we got paid today and I have .58 francs, some checK. I suppose you will have a vacation soon. Whatever you do, rest. Well it has been just a year to date I enlisted and it seems" like five years. . I suppose everybody will celebrata. around Belding the 4th. 1 think we will likely have fireworks as well. Gee, it has been two weeks since I heard f rem anyone in the States. Close to where we are there are four or five cherry trees and lots of cherries on them; don't think we go hungry for them. I am sending you a poem one of the boys wrote. He is working with, me. - Ilis namo is Paul Rubrecht. I will write it for you. How is Don? Suppose he i?v down every week the same as usual. This is the poem: Folks at home are doing wonders, To hasten on the victory day; ,s Saving fuel, saving food stuffs, ' Saving iri most every way. Certain days no bread is, eaten, , Other days no meat at all; ' Still another day is heatless, Least it was that way last fall. . ' Seme have made a day that's smoke less, , Girls refrain trom powdered face,.' Druggist locks the perfume counter, Cupid guards the candy case. ; ' We appreciate your efforts, - I speak for soldiers, one and all;. Xeep it up and.w'll. get them, , ' Maybe end the war by fall. . '' Put one thing' I wish to mention. Soldiers' dutjc dont you know. While we appreciate "yotir efforts And the sentiment that you show. Don't go too far with sacrifices, ' Remember there's a time to quit, There are two sides to every question That s a fact that you 11 admit. Your object is to stop the fighting To do away with bloody war: To get us boys out of the trenches, To bring us all back home once more. You can have your meatless Sundays, Wheatless Mondays if going still, Continue with your heatless Tuesdays, Sweatless Wednesdays if you will. You can have all these you want, Go ahead, you're on the track. But if you start a kissless Sunday, I'll be if 111 come back I will close with lots of lovrt from your loving son and brother.
