PIPEFULS (Thursday, September 21, 1944) "We are going to die—this is the end." (Sini, Yamu). Those were nearly the last words written on a note taken from the body of a dead Japanese soldier. E. R. Anderson, of the Bakersfield police department had the Japanese letter translated by the FBI, which sent him back a copy. The letter was sent home to Mrs. Cotton, at HO Kentucky street, by Richard Cotton, with an engineer aviation battalion, her husband. Scout Patrol -On one side of the flimsy paper Is a report of a scout patrol know- Ing It is about to die. On the other Bide is a farewell letter addressed by all members of the party to their folks at home ami their kids. Evidently in conformity with the Japanese army regulations they did not put any names nor other ! marks of identity on the missive as they knew their number was up, and that the letter would fall into enemy hands. To their families, relatives and friends, the Japanese scouting patrol wrote, and Mrs. Cotton here has the original letter from the Pacific battle front: „ "Please be cautious, take good care of yourself. We trust that all will be well with you. We know that you are all busily engaged, all you little ones, during our absence from home. And the same : was true for your revered mother, who had so much to do and also all the other inmates of the home. There is great joy and gladness over us. Our wives must not worry but feel contented and safe. Here is the letter. - "This letter is a bearer of good tidings of joy and happiness. We have been in the midst of all kinds of dangers and mishaps but with ojjr respects to you we have sur. vived and overcome them all so .they do not matter. We feel thankful for this. And we again express our feeling of joy and gladness. "But for this time, we ask you for your compassion in our tribulations, thanking you for your sympathy from the bottom of our heart." Letter From the Dead Mrs. Cotton says she does not know from what part of the Pacific or battle her husband obtained the letter. He has been overseas since August of 1943 and evidently has seen a lot of action. The letter, as the F. B. I. trans- * lator commented, is an interesting human interest document written by a group of men about to die and now dead. Leonard Knoles "Dear Jim: Just a note from one who reads your column consistently and enjoys to do so very much. I doubt if you remember me, but I was connected with the. Sea Scouts and the American Legion for a number of years, nearly eight. I believe. "I have finally settled down to a career in the army.

Smartly dressed in her pale beige uniform, Corporal Hall told enthusiastically of her army training. She enlisted in February, 1943, and spent 'our weeks at Fort Oglethrope, Ga., 'or basic training.

Tampa, Fla, and is the pilot of a B-17 Flying Fortress bomber. World War II Veteran Miles M. Heber, who has seen ac- ion on Guadalcanal and New Geor- ?ia, in addition to being stationed at Hickman Field, Hawaii, directly after Pearl Harbor, expressed his opinion of "Those Who Serve" with .hese words, "I think that when the joys come back from fighting in this \Vorld War, this book will show that heir community really has thought of them when they were servijjg "Jncle Sam. It will make them feel hat they are a part of this coun- Mr. Heber also added. "Incidentally, we wouldn't be able to have 'Those Who Serve," with the liberally spoken history on its pages, if :hose boys weren't over there fight- ng right now!" Beginning his army career with 13 weeks of basic training at Camp Roberts, the former corporal was hen assigned to the Hundred and Sixty-first Infantry ant! transferred to Fort Lewis, Wash.

Wheeler, who was commander of the local American Legion post when the editing and planning for "Those Who Serve" was begun, says, "Rehabilitation of our returning veterans, assisting them to find their rightful place in civil life, is now the first duty of the American Legion. We believe that the contacts made through the pictorial record of our sons and daughters in this volume will play a vital part in establishing these servicemen and women in our community." "Those Who Serve" is under the editorship of John F. Watts and is entirely sponsored by the local Legion post. Was In France Past Commander Wheeler, who held the rank of Second Lieutenant during the first World War, is a veteran of action at St. Mihiel and the Argonne.
