Gilliam Boy Writes of
A letter from Orfa R. Andrews of
Blaiock describes the recent earthquake
in southern California. He is in the
U. S. Navy and wa stationed at San
Diego. He says In part: "Just a line
to say that I waa in a real earthquake
yesterday. It was no joke a'nd people
fainted by the score. I was standing
on the hugtat plaza when everything
began to move. Ray turned to me and
said: "What is the matter, are you
rocking the boat?" We couldn't real
ize what was happeniag. I thought 1
was nutty, for the buildings began
swaying, cement walks raised up and
cracked open and everybody waa run
ning. We stood and watched things
fall and straighten up again. We could
see 75 outlets from buildings and the
way people poured out made me think
of when we untd to go rabbit shooting
in Gilliam county, rabbits scooting from
every bush, sometimes twenty at a
time. From every arch the people
came running a if Satan himself, were
after them, their hands high above
their heads and many screaming but all
running. I have recently taken the
final examination and been promoted
and it took hard work. I studied all
the time I was in the hospital, 36 days,
and I could see dots and dashes roll up
in a ball bigger than the hospital. Ray
coached me every night. He sailed for
France and we may only hope he gets
back but if not the principles he or any
man gives his life for will live forever.
Those who are single and can fight and
are too much of cowards to enlist won't
make a very brave nation for the future.

Eph Wilson Writes
Letter from France
Eph Wilson writes from "Some
where in France" and his letter
is in part as follows: "I'm get
ting so many .letters lately that
I cannot get them answered as
soon as I would like to. I'm out
on a Brassy hillside ttbout five
minutes from camp and it is aa
ideal place to write letters. There
is a magpie sitting in a tree just
a little distance away chattering
with all its might. I guess it is
spieling me a little French for I
don't understand it That's just
how the French language sounds
tome. Even the crows in this
country make a different noise
than they da in America. This
is a beautiful day here and makes
me halfway homesick.- Clarence
writes that there is no place like
Alberta but I have the same idea
of Oregon so he need not write
me any of that old stuff. I
guess that I had better finish this
letter for there are about a hun
dred kids around me asking for
souvenirs. All that I can write
is that I'm well and doing fine.
We can't tell where we are nor
what we are doing."
