The Thrift Stamp drive is on now. Let everyone attend to this duty for we must win this war.

A. Thorson and A. Lenher have joined the home guards at Greenwood. We are now sure of good protection by these gentlemen.

Mr. and Mrs. Susa received a letter from their son, Albert, from the training camp. He is well and enjoying himself with a 20-mile hike each day. Happy-go-lucky Albert says that some of the boys have blisters on their feet, but he states that there are no blisters on his feet. Good for Albert.

Mr. Podobnik will soon have the basement of his barn done.
