He says In part: '''When we arrived here It never got dark, but now it's dark at 8 in the evening. . . Letters are more welcome than pay checks . . .The trail in and out of here is mighty rough and hazardous and trails are usually made by poking a hole through the woods, or up the mountain side In the rock or lay down a corduroy over a mesquite bog. A corduroy road is made of logs laid cross-wise and then a fill put over the logs and if a truck or caterpillar happens off the logs, it's just nothing else but go get him. Fills are of rock and gravel as there is no dirt available. Any place you find dirt you find frost a short ways down, a foot or two ... This whole country is covered with moss 10 to 12 inches deep and trees are so thick in most places that the ground is hidden from the sun and whenever dry ground is found it usualy' goes .'•nto a powder like flour and when you plow it loose you can sink in almost up to your knees ... It has rained a little bit every day since we've been here ... It is beginning to get cold, down to 10 above. About 1:30 in the morning the northern lights come on and they are most beautiful, every color '.n the rainbow all across the northern- sky, and they flicker and ripple 'like so much like a ribbon in the wind . . . We have woodburning stoves in each tent, wooden floors. and not so bad to live in. A pall of water on the stove, our own wash basin and we can shave or take a sort of bath, ?.n our own tent. At first we bathed in the river (colder than the dickens then) but that's out now. We have one meeky bog to cross which will take a lot of corduroy to lay, as it about 2V4 miles .across. Some of the men went home September 15, and all of them will be starting homeward ' the 15th of October as it is too' cold then to work. So far they haven't picked on our camp as yet. It is snowing now on the mountains and we have had several flurries. The trucks have to be started every half hour to keep from freezing. •For School * •Afternoon •For Dress Sensational Values Celling prfee &IO to I0.»* 41! $4.86 ACTIVITIES OF LIVERMORE BOYS IN FIGHT SERVICE Livermore: Sergeant Robert Wonderly arrived . home Wednesday morning from Washington, D.

McGregor Phone 62rW 39-40* 'rom where I sit ... oe Marsh I MIBSED getting my hair eat this morning on account of the scrap collection. When I climbed into the barber chair, Ray says to me: "Sorry, Joe. Ain't got time for you today. We're closing up this morning at ten." And then I remembered. Thli was the day the town had agreed to drop everything—and I mean tverything—md collect scrap for Uncle Sam. Yes sir, the drugstore, the corner garage, Sam Abernethy'g general store — every place in town except the post office —closed up tight today, from 10 to 5. • * • And yon ought to see the result piled up in front of the fire house. One hundred and fifty .tons of metal that had been lying around in attics, cellars and back yards of our town since Charlie Jenkins* great-grandfather joined np with the Texas Rangers. That's almost 200 Ibs. of metal for every man, woman and child in our town. Just shows you—when American citizens go out to do a job for Uncle Sam they do it right. Judge Cunningham and 1 were talking about it this evening, sitting on the.f roht perch and having • sociable beer together. W« agreed that the way this town went mil out to collect scrap was • pretty good illustration of how Democracy works. No need to crack • whip... no need to pass * law ... just self-determined folk* .working hand in hand to get • job done for their own people. Because from where I sit, that's) •what we're fighting for—the right to work together—of our,own accord. To do the job because we •want to, not because somebody tells us to. And when the job's done, to relax as we see fit. And the Judge agreed. He pointed out that one of the things that helps folks get together to just what we were doin' now. It's great, after a good day's; work, to be able to have a chat and « glass of beer if you want to.
