FRIDAY, NOV. 10, 1939. 'HE DAILY NEWS—LUDINGTON, JVIICHIGAN. PAGE FIVE Draft Days Are Recalled In Picture In Daily News (By MRS. E. M. STEPHENS) ] FREESOIL.—There Is an interesting story connected with ev.cry young man in the picture in the issue of The Daily News Saturday, Nov. 4, of the 70 from Mason county who were called to the colors Sept. 19,~1917. Eight of those young men were from Freesoil and vicinity. Two of the eight were excused from service. The' remaining six, Ed Stopenhagen, Arthur C. Stephens, Charles Winner, John Rybicki, Julien Osmoloski and John Gajeski, with 66 other boys from this vicinity, served in the World war. The first four were transferred from Camp Custer to Waco, Tex., where they were placed in the 32nd Division and Arthur Stephens and John Rybicki in the Machine Gun company, 126th Infantry. Cross to France Crossing to France in February 1918, they saw service in the major battles of that summer. They were first placed in a so- called quiet sector in the Vosges mountains and in a skirmish there Charles Winner was killed. His death was the first among the American expeditionary forces. John Rybicki was made cook for the Machine Gun company. Arthur Stephens and John were "buddies" during the conflict over there. Ed Stopen- hagan was" in infantry, there- ' fore, was separated from John' and Arthur. , Arthur Stephens was on guard duty in the Vosges, when his sister, Etta, now Mrs. Frank Hunt, delivered her Commencement day oration as a member of the Freesoil high school class of 1918. Erik Vettergrcn, who also served in the Machine Gun company while in camp at Waco, called himself Arthur Stephens' Swede brother. Erik re-enlisted at the close of the war, serving one or two more terms and then returnod to Ludington. He received a distinguished service cross while 1 in .service overseas. Machine Gun Go. Rolland Elkins registered at Scottville and was placed in the Machine Gun company. Of a happy, joyous nature, Rolland, who some of the time served as a i runner, was able to make his buddies laugh when conditions wore very serious. Rolland returned to Michigan married and located in Grand Rapids for a time, then moved to Detroit. John Rybicki is a well-known resident of North Freesoil and A FARMER'S SKETCH BOOK By WIllARD BOLTE • Stonycreekmouth Form ing fun about it though. They say he has all the tones of the violin and when he ceases snoring for a second, they say he is turning a sheet of music." I wrote in answer and said, "I believe I would wake that snorer up. Why should he sleep and all the rest of you be awake?" A month later another letter came saying, "You said I should wake the snorer up. Well, I tried one morning when we were going "over the top," but the poor fellow had "gone West." Just at that time a letter from Captain William Haze of the Machine Gun company appeared in The Grand Rapids Herald. It said, "I lost four of my boys in our first battle," (Bellieau Wood) and four names were given. One of these, John O'Connor, of New York City, was the snorer. Rural Church Announcements ST.
