to see these boys leave us, especially
Hoblitzell and Rosenshine, who were
two of the reasons why we had' a good
ball team, still Uncle Sam knows best,
and the War comes FIRST. We still
stand 40 strong, ready for further
calls. “Who’s next and where?”

The home hour this week was in
charge of the young people from the
Steel Creek Presbyterian church, a
church that has the reputation of be
ing the largest rural church in the
South. About fifty representatives
from the church were present and
they gave an entertaining program of

speaker said, was characteristic of
