assigned him faithfully and to the best of his abildty. His popularity was fully
attested by the crowd vjho came to the church Sunday afternoon to his funeral. We -will
iidss him every day, but we know he has gone to his reward and has received-''well done,
thcu good and faithful servant".
Aliiiost every one in town has a Victorj' Garden., and ."/e'see many blisters on the
hands of the amateurs who are trjdng it for the first tirao, ar.d we hear some tall
tries of the prospect they have, but wc will v;ait and i.p-o 'vint happens.
Things ore moving so fast in this war that it is hard for us to keep ,up vdth
f'ur boys, 'bvit we arc doing the best v/e can, ?Jid we hope yo'o are getting your magazine
;:c;’’lrvrly, and continue to find it interesting. It gi\ros us a thrill to get it up
for you,’ and wo will bo pleased to do anything else in the world wo can for your comr-
fcrt raid ontei^airiment, if you vdll only call on us.
Vie occasionT.Uy see one of our boys home on furlough, but not as many xve we would
-Like, -;ut Ioiot; that you have a job to do, and you ai-e do:Lng it to the honor and credit
• f ycurselves, your town and your couni-ry.
It seems that we do not get as many letters from you boys as we would like, but
..•c do not believe that it is due to the fact that you do not enjoy YOUR paper but
r-ther that yc-u are so busy that you only have time to write to your family and "the
9,irl ycu left behind", but we do wish you could snatch a few minutes to send us a few^
lines, as \re think the letters from the boys add so'much to the Hoover Riil. If only
a few sentences are VkTitten, to appreciate'it fully, so do your best for us, snd help
us make your paper a better one cach month,
Tho picture on the front shov/s only a part of the folks who help make your paper
vjhat it is, as every one in town lends a helping hand. Wo have the full co-operation
of all your homef.olks and we do appreciate so much the help they gdve us. No one
ever refused to help in any way possible, so tho staff of the paper consists of the
entire twvn, all of them deeply interested in you, and trying to show it in every v;ay
pnssibln. The writer docs not believe he is as ugly as the picture says, although he
l^ys no claim to beauty, but every one says it is a good picture, so wt> vdll let it go
at tlia.t. It is a real good picture cf Jim Osborne as it shows him in his familiar
pose of drinking a Coca-Cola, and only lending moral support, while others v/ork, but
Jira RK^LLY does his full share on getting out the paper, and is deeply interested in
all the boys in the servico.
One cf tlio sights ycu vdll see on your return is \vomen r?orking in the dye house
.'ind cai'd' room, for the first tirae in the history of the mdlJL, and they are doing a
£Ood job, carrying on for you until ycu return. Yfe appreciate their helping us, as
it raerjis more goods for you that you probably needo
I judge some of the candidates vdll feel Saturday night like a friend of mine
v^io r?.n for office ^.nd v»/as badly defeated. He v/ont heme late that night, after the
retuiDs were in, rjid ho knev; that he had received only a few votes. He knocked on
the door, and his wife inquired as to v;ho he was. His reply T;as: "Darn near nobody".
By the way, the girls in the picture do not seem to think that the camera did
:'ny of them justice, rnd via think such is the case ourselves, as we do have good
1 :~’/:ing wonen here, and they aj^o just as fine as ycu find anywhere on earth. They
;'.re really carrying on and are ready to vjork and fijit on the home front in any
c’pa city to which they may be ca.Hed,
So long until next tln.e r.nd the best of luck to each and every one of ycu.
