II. E. Harris, the well known
local ice manufacturer, recent
ly received a letter from his son.
Claud, of which the following
is a part:
"When we stood off of Sandy
Hook yesterday afternoon and
came up the old North river in
the dark and saw the Statute
of Liberty all lit up at the en
trance of the harbor, I believe
it was one of the happiest mo
ments of my life. I left here
the 29th of last January in a
submarine chaser. We crossed
over under our own power,
sometimes in convoy and some
times not. We crossed along
the Irish coast in search of sub
marines and experienced a lot
of hardships. Later we went
south and was in the Mediter
ranean sea when the Jacob
Jones was sunk. We rescued
three of the crew and took them
aboard. A week after that we
were run down in the night and
stink. All of the crew escaped
except the chief machinist mate,
lie was sleeping at the time.
I was on watch with another
machinist. Both of us escaped
with only bruises, and we
were sure lucky. We were the
Inst to Icavo except the officer,
who stepped into the life
boat right behind me. We
were in that open boat all night
and was picked up by a mine
layer, and that was what we
finally came into New York on.
I have been pretty sick from
exposure, but will get over that
in a short time."
An Interesting Program
Mister exercises were held in
the morning at the Evangelical
church and the program arrang
ed by the Superintendent of the
Sunday School and kindergar
ten and primary superintendent
was excellent. The little ones
seemed at their very hunt, ami
why tiot, for such is the king
dom of heaven. In the evening,
the Suns Dion Rein class had
charge of the program under
the direction of the president of
the class, Miss Itulh Kdmond
son, and she deserves credit for
the manner in which she con
ducted the exercises. Then
was music by the orchestra,
patriotic songs by the choir in
which the audience joined, a
duet by Mrs. Daisy lloskins
and Mr. KmiKom Young, a read
ing by Mrs. Hall and also one
by Miss Wagner, a talk by the
pastor in which he commended
the class for what they had
done and what they meant to the
church, also in reward to the
young men who had left the
class at their country's call and
wore now at the front, nroaentn
tion of a Service Hag in memory
of the boys who belonged to the
duns, reading ot a poem by Mrs.
Hall, composed by Miss Etta
I'attorson, a class member,
which will appear next week.
The decorations wore beautiful
