Dear Editor of The News:
We will try and give a few
items from the busy iittle.city of
The health is .very good and
every one is eager and willing to
do their bit to win the war. We
are hooverizing to the limit. We
are allowed to give only two bis
cuits to each person and two tea-spoon-fuls
of sugar for their cof
fee, while some take it and go on
in a manly way, others will snurl
up their nose and say bad things
about it, but who are they? They
are like some of the people that
Snookum spoke of on Pumpkin
Snookum you're around here,
yes I know vou and wish I could
spend this Sunday after-noon on
your front porch chattieg with
you and your family. You were
speaking of the lofty peaks and
beautiful scenery of Hancock Co.
It makes me oh! so homesick. I
wish I could go back to Hancock
and spend two or three months.
We are true students of nature
and would like to roam over the
dear old hills and valleys and
gazo on things that are real true
and beautiful. I cf ten think of
the old farm house nestled among
the hills and mountains of dear
old East Tenn., where we spent
our childhood days and oh! how
we wish we could recall thoso
happy days and stand once more
in the old home door with our
youthful hearts throbbing with
joy. watching the lightening
flashes as they p'ayed along the
hill tops casting their illuminat
ing ravs over the little valley be
low, or; wander where we useaM
wander over tho; old bills (
watch the bees sip honey fx..
the poplar and the poppy blossom
but my dear 4 friend, those days
past and forever gone therefore,
all we can do is to make the best
cf things that time in its fleet
ne3s brinps us nearer Eternity,
and loo, Snookum, you were
speaking cf thcold mill. We can
see the mill with its moulding
wheel in our imagination, where
we u.-:ed to l ide Alec and Lize
and while we waited for our grist
to be ground we would wade in
the creek or slid a down the red
banks that wc can't very well
forget. Hut Sncokum since those
days time has put lines in our
faces and silver in our hair.
We spent the glorious Fourth
with Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Trent at
Morristown and feasted on green
beans, ham, rake and fried chik
en. At 5:30 we started back U
noisy city and :a wc pullel
' into tno pt?Uon. a trcop tram
had ju t arrived from some W st
crn point. lost all the soldiers
set-nnid to l o enjoying them
selves while others corned Fad.
" Will say to Lon Odom of CaBp
Meade, Md. Whydcn't you tell
through the. News how you
likoj our new camp? We w;sh
for you to be v.ith u. and hope
you will, as soon a3.you nil lick
the KrJrcrgood and rttrnt.
We had the tkasure to hear a
Rritish soldier, j'jst from the
trenches make a .recch on the
war. He carried one arm in a
sling and w alked with a cane.
Tho Germans did him a dirty job
He said he was willing to fight
ti!i he d ed for hi country.
Hello! Mrs. Martha Hrvwcr
and Homer Odom wc nm glad

Some Where in ' France, Ar
June 20,
Dear Mother:
I am well and enjoying tht
scenery of the old world. Hope
this letter, with the news of my
arriving safely will be of much
pleasure to you. You need n6t
worry about me in the least. I
think we wiU have the Huns lick
ed before a great while and then
I will return homo with good
news and tell you of my. exper
ience in Europe.
I am still with Co. B.' 11 3th. M.
A. RnJ . I think most of the boys
enjoyed their trip across the At
lantic, Although our fare was not
the best owing to the fact that
there w ere a little over seventeen
' . aT
hundred on the loaL Since 1
have crossed the pond I have
been in Liverpool England, also
London Dover. I have Been the
Knglish Channel anil the Irish
Sea. We stayed a little while In
Calias, France.
France in a beautiful country,
but tho people are behind time in
mot of the modern methods.
Their farming implements are
nltogether different from ours.
They are very rude mado tools.
Th?p?ople ride in peculiar twa
whi-el calls drawn by onlv, one
horse. Their trains are very much
smaller than ours and not near
as accommodating rs ours. Their
dwelling houso and barn are un
dor the sane roof. They are
built of brick and covered with
til . i np;. Sometimes the roofs are
thatched with straw. The build
ings are generally enclosed by
strong brie k wcllit. The French
are not very sanitay. They live
more like rats than people.
I im not on the firing line vet,
bl t,njghtjfc rant bear the big
guns roai fng. .And fn the f ter
noon I see our allies going over
to visit tho Huns in the airplanes
So I will cloae, hoping to hear
from you real soor. You must
write me real often,
Yocr son.
