I will take time out to drop you a. few lines in appreciation for the "Hoover
Rail." I have been intending to write you before now and I'm ashamed that I haven't,
but a soldier's extra time is scarce. By the time I write hone to the folks, my time
is a11 gone and I have to do something else.
The "Hoover Rail" sure is a dandy paper. I'm always so anxious for the next
issue that I can hardly wait. It sure does help a fellow out when he’s far awny to
he£ir all about the folks at homcv It makes us feel good to know that all the folks
are backing us up, doing their bit to keep us cheered up and putting every extra
penny in V/ar Bonds. Me all appreciate it and knov; that with the help of such good
folks, as you, will bring this terrible war to a quicker ending,
I think of you folks back homo often and can see you in my mind from day to
day as you go about your daily jobs. I sure would like to be back there with the
Cleveland Mi2J. & Power Co. like I once viC'.s. I didn't know what a good job I had
until I lost it, but I'm glad that I can say I'm doing my part as best I can, and
I feel like it won't be very long until all the boys can be back at home like we
once were and sit on the old "Hoover Rail" and play chcckers and tell tales to one
VJoll, I'll sign off now. Thanks again for the paper and here's hoping to see
you soon. Pvt. Clyde J. Towery,
Fort Leonard V/ood, Ilissouri

I have just received August issue of "HOT OFF THE HOOVER R/iIL," and I
really enjoyed reading every word of it, and I also a ppreciate the good work you
people are doing, in getting this paper out each month. It means a lot to the boys
in the service. dn
Well, I am now back in Australia and, after spending sometime,/it really makes
you appreciate a civilized country. Yours truly,

Just a few lines to say hello and thanks a million for all the "Hoover Rails"
I got a big kick out of Dewey Canipe's letter about not understanding the
Mexicani-rSprjiLsh. I have been around Spanish people for one year on the 23rd day
of this month :-Jid I only understand a little. I don't think I will ever understand
"Pig Latin". Tlie Mexic.-ins are always saying something to me. I say, "No sang,"
which means I don't understand. The Spanish spoken here isn't the pure old Spanish.
At least that Tjas what a principal told me. He spld this is more like "Pig Latin."
As I said before, I really enjoyed reading the boys' letters and seem to know
all them that v;rite. I am also proud to see every one doirxg so well,
V/ishing the best of luck to every one.
