at attention and could not speak.
All this build up I would not give
you if you wouldn't be personally
interested in the rest of my story.
For four of the comparatively small
groups of soldiers honored with the
personal citation presented by the
Regimental Commander, Colonel
Manning, are our own Haywood
county boys, for which I am sure
you are proud. In H company had
three of the four, M company the
fourth. Sergeant Edward Hill, or
should I say "Ed," for that's the
way you know him; Corporal Grey
C. Winchester, and Sergeant Thad
0. Chafin, Jr., and Corporal Joe
Sloan were the four boys so hon
ored. The wording of the citation was
brief and precise as are all such
military documents, very dry to
the reading, but very full when you
project your imagination into the
scene. For meritorious service in
the training of selectees last year;
selectees who are now well trained
soldiers, on duty both here and in
Other places throughout the world.
Representatives of our army who
speak well for the training given by
the Training Cadre as this
group of non-commissioned officer

speaking for the recruits, for I
got my training at the Dust Bowl
under this group don't hold it
against them, too much, however
we are grateful for the training
they gave us, for the patience, un
tiring effort, and leal which they
put into their work. Not all of the
Training Cadre was cited, and I
don't want to leave that impres
sion; it was the best of the group
as selected by their officers who
were so honored.

It really looks like Mrs. Man
was fixing to do something nice for
the Creek Folks, but it is a fact
that she hadn't planned to do It
Anyway, on that Saturday after
noon when Uncle Joe's cider was
going to be just right, she cooked
two of the most fluffy and brown
ginger cakes that anybody ever did
cook. When Mr. Man saw them
come out of the oven, he told his
wife that the only thing he knew
that was prettier than those cakes
was the cook. And then she kissed
him right on the bald spot on the
top of his head. But that's some
thing lee. We were talking about
those eirnrer cakes,

all about the cakes, and they knew
that the cider they had stowed

thing about how the cake was
going to get to the Big Tree, but he
certainly must have told some of
his other helpers all about his
plans, for nothing ever worked any
smoother. So Jay Bird had to sit
around for ever so long before he
had any idea of what was going to
happen, but what he saw was worth
waiting for. The big cake was
pretty heavy, besides being too
big to carry very well in one's
hands, and so Mr. Man was going
to take it over in his wagon, and
would bring the jug of cider back.
The jug, too, would certainly need
the wagon. And he was to start
just a little while before sunset,
so the cake would be nice and
warm for Uncle's Joe's supper.
Jay Bird DID know all of those

it was plenty easy for Jocko to
reach in the wagon and take out a
beautifully brown and fluffy ginger
cake that was all wrapped in a
cloth to keep it warm and nestle
it down in his basket.
"Sorry you can't be at supper
with us, Hee-Haw," Jocko Baid as
he darted off into the woods. 'So
am I, but I am faring mighty well
here. Tell Blackie howdy for me,"
Mr. Man got to the house in a
hurry, and he got hir. gun and look

that it was an owl, and so he shut

yards from the house, and had
just turned from the big road into
the path that wont to Uncle Joe's
house, when he heard that terrible
squall of an owl that Mrs. Man
had heard the day before, and that
she had been trying to describe to
him, and it was closely followed
by just as loud a squall from Mrs.
Man. Mr, Man let out another
squall, "I'm coming," and stopped

wagon and ran toward the house.

bnck. When he got back to the
wagon, he felt like squalling as
loud as Mrs. Man had. The cake
was gone! And Hee-Haw began
braying no, he was LAUGHING
oh, HOW he was laughing!
"That terrible owl, or whatever the program to be announced later
it was that made that noise came
and got the cake while I was at
the house," Mr. Man told his wife,
as he went back to the house. "Give
me half of the other one, and I'll
take it over to Aunt Judy. We can't
disappoint her, and, besides, we
want the cider." Mrs. Man Cut off
half of the cake, but she didn't give
it to Mr. Man. She got in the
wagon and went with him.
