Dear Jim aid Staff: Sorry if ycu have never received any letter of thanks for ray copios of "The Hoover Rail", as I mailed one ceverai months ago. I cannot begin to express my app- reciaticn for the trouble and effort pjhich it miast take to publish this little paper. Each .-"nd every one of the staff can rest assured that it is far from being in vain. I have had a lock at several papers which large ■ concerns put out for their boys and’ have seen nothing to compare with "The Hoover Kai3." ?jid through my copy, the- people, the staff, and the .to^vn have had man;/ compliiuents and through it, we get ne;7s that otherwise we could not get in a letter or in any other If at tiines the boys fail to write in as you thinlt they should, do not ever think for a minute that the paper is not serving its purpose. For instance, except ing mb, every one who does not write, in a certain tirade skip- one paper and you vdll hear by wire. And that j^minds me I hope you are not already doing this, as I have not gotten one for August yet, but it is about due, so I hope to receive it soon, will write again in the near future, so until then you can all feel sure your little town is sticking by the boys, if you could only be around and hear them talk sometime when the subject is "Home". And I oia sure our boys vdll (as some have al ready) prove themselves to be the ri^t kind as long as they have people like we have, behind the gun, I an sure they vdll be a little better than the £U.ys v;ho come from places, where people are only interested in themselves.
