I Mr». Paul Bcinecker. 6131 Ninetieth street, was in the Herald office this week and left to be published, for the benefit of his friends here, a letter just received from her son, William. Everybody in the state is proud of the Third Oregon, and Lents people are especially proud of their boys who have distinguished themselves in service. A very trim military picture of the handsome young »oldier with the stars and stripes in the background, and a clipping from a French publication telling of the American troops’ first important victory, at Amiens, are other inclosures in the letter, which is very dear to the mother waiting at home and longing for the end of I the war in a speedy victory. The letter follows: , “In France. June 1, 1918—My Dear est Mother: Weil, here I am again, ' still safe and sound and as healthy as can be. I have been ‘over the top’ for my first time and. believe me. things certainly were exciting, and we made things very exciting for the Boche—and then some. It’s certainly a great life, if you don’t weaken. I would like to tell you about the French life, but can't. The most important thing in this drive was that the American forces were for the first time launching a big attack without the support of the French troops, and 4the men that were launching the attack were the first ones to set foot on French soil. I was transferred just in time to be one of the boys that went over the top and I certainly am proud of it. “Clarence Johnson, also from Lents, was the only other boy from i the old Third Oregon Infantry that went ‘over the top.’ He is in Com pany I, and I am in Company K. Twenty-eighth Infantry. With love. “Your dearest son, “WILLIAM KNECHT.” DR. ESTHER CLAYsON LOVEJOY RECEIBED TQ MEMBERSHIP AND RESOLUTION SENT TO FRANCE— GRESHAM GRANGE GUESTS.
