,T'Ho following letter was com
menced when tho writer was in
tho training detachment at, tho
Benson Polytechnic School at
Portland, and finished after being
transferred to Camp Lewis.
August 8th, 1918.
Dear Friend: Captain (Roos,
our commanding officer, got tho
orders for our leaving the Gth.
Gol'y, wn never know how many
good quartettes we had here till
we got our orders to leave; it sure
stirred us up. 1 don't think we
will lie "going ovqr" for a while,
because we turned in our blank--
eta and bed sacks.
Wo certainly jiave some fine
officers here, and' wo all rather
hate to leave bufcstill we are glad
J-becaiiBo wo are anxious for sonic-
thing new. We are throwing in
and will get each Lieutenant and
the Captain a "pair of puttees. I
think that is fine for they have
given us every privilege they
possibly cpuldi . Today is Thurs
day and we aro oil pass till 10:00
p. m. today since G p. m. yester
day. We have &ur class cards which
we take with us wherever we go.
I was classed as a-journey man in
carpentry and got next best grade
in my class; a manlwith jiev.cn
years experience -got- theTbest
gril le. I've made ii lot of good
friends here. There is a lot of
good sports among the "wood
butchers" who will be with me il .
everything goes as they think.
We went on a 12-milo hike
about a weekago and sure had a
lino time. But we almost tost a
man; ho was swimming and gave
out, went down and was under
for two minutes (no, he isn't
there yet) ; a little fellow weigh
ing about 115 pounds dived and
brought him up. A boat was se
cured and (although all in the
thing rushed to 013c end and near
ly upset it) they finally got him
to shore where the school doctor
brought him to. Tho Captain
gave those who helped save him
a special recomendation On their
cards as "excellent private, "etc.
The drowning fellow weighed
about 200 pounds so the little
fellow who brought him up sure
This is a fine school; I wish 1
could stay hero till I knew more.

Knowing that my friends in
Eagle Valley would like to know
where I am located, I ask you to
publish this letter.
I was at Fort Lawton, Wash.,
but was transferred here a short
time ago. This Is a nice place
and the weather is about like that
of Eagle Valley only that it rains
here two or three times a week.
This Fort is about the size of
Richland; all the houses are of
brick, all of same size and look
alike, sd it is kind of hard to find
the right ono until you get used
to the place.

that close to 13,)00,000 men will
be registered irt one day next.
