Doar Friend: Received your
welcome letter, also the paper,
which J waa glad to get for I am
as much interested in what is go
ing on in Eagle as I am in this
Wo tiro cortainly having fine
weather here, and when I think
of the wintor there last year I am
glad to bo in California. Oranges
will soon be ripo here and. while
you throw snow balls for me, I
will cat oranges for yuii.
Uncle Sam has kept us fellows
pretty busy the poat month with
pick and shovel, teaching us how
to dig trenches, but when it comes
to that kind of work wo are real
soldiers and only work just hard
enough to keep out of tho brig;
Of course we don't keep at it
all day for we have to drill an
hour a day, polico up the camp
each morning, and stand troop
inspection (wo call it the "once
over") and if our clothes are not
clean nr our rifle is dirty tho cap.
tain, tells us about it in a way
that we don't forgot right off.
Wo were yoing to leave for the
East the 17th, but our company
commander is sick and unable to
travel, so the 3Gth Company is
going in our place and leave us to-
guard the post. The 101st Com
pmiy injure a sore bunch for we
are afraid somebody wjll get the
Kaiser bofore we get a chance at
him. Our Caotain said we would
leave within tho next month, but
I think that was just to keep us
from feeling so bad.
I see, in the paper that I was
mentioned ns a gob, but I belong
to the Marino corps a branch ot
the Navy. Now I don't suppose
you know what a gob is. Well,
we have niclc-nnmes for most ev
ery branch of tho service, for in
stance: a sailor is a gob; marines
are leather-necks; regulars arc
dough-boya; national guard, home
guard and National Army are
termed slackers. Of course every
fellow thinks tho branch of ser
vice ho belongs to is the best, but
each branch needs the help of the
other and wo are all depending
upon the people at home, so it
does not matter much where' one
is at so long as he is doing his bit.
There were two boy3 deserted
our company last week. One was
gone only three days when ho re
turned and his excuse was that
he got doped and didn't know
anything for three days. I guess
tho dope part of hiB story is true
for somo of thostuff tho boys get
to drink hero has an awful kick
to it. lie is now awaiting trial
but tho other fellow has not
showed up yet.
Well, as my bunkie wants me
to go to town with him I will c(uit
for this time. Sincerely,
San Diego, Calif.

Many of tho young men in the

Carson Gover went to Baker,
was examined and accepted, but
was given time to come home and
get his affairs in shape before en
tering the service.
Everett Shaver, son of John S.
Shaver, although under age, has
gone to enter the' service if ho
can get by.
