Jake Schroeder Writes
May 9. 1918
To the Republican Voters and
Citizens of Gilliam County:
It is with a feeling of deep re
gret that I feel called upon to
make a denial of certain reports
which are being circulated for
political purposes to the effect
that I had given expression to
pro German sentiments since the
beginning of this war.
I have been a resident of thla
county for tbe past eighteen
years and I know that I am iust
as loyal and patriotic as any citi
zen in this community and was
surprised indeed to learn that I
had an enemy capable of making
an accusation against me as ser
ious as this one. I am inclined to
be charitable, however, and be
lieve that it was thoughtlessness
on the part of the person who or
iginated the chartre and I feel
sure, that my friends and ac
quaintances are absolutely con
vinced of my loyalty to my coun
try and its people.
; ' Respectfully,
Jake E. Schroeder.
Sergeant French is here on re
cruiting duty. He wants volun

18 to 21 inclusive and from 81 to

will be for the duration of the
