WHAT IKIES NOVEMBER 11TH.
MEAN TO YOU THIS YEAR?*
it meant everything to you in the
year of 11*18, when the boys (your
boys) went over the top for the last
.time and made this a safe and better
.world for'you to live in. Then nothing
was too good for them. Do you still
think as much of the boys? Do you
still give them a hand shake and tell
them you are backing them up as you
did then? What has Barrow county
done for the hoys that guve the best
they bad so that Barrow county might
enjoy the peace that they are now 'en
joying? Nothing absolutely nothing.
Not so many weeks ago one of Bar
roy county’s boys that had mode the su
preme sacrifice was sent back to bio
home for burial and a notice appearing
in The Winder News that he was to
be buried on a date fixed liy the boy’s
mother, and would you be surprised to
know that there was not enough of
Winder ami Barrow county people at
the undertaker’s office to bury this lad
at the time set for his burial? The
few boys that had fought with him bail
to go out and beg and rent enough
ears to carry I lie boy's mother and the
family to the cemetery.
Why can’t we get together and give
the boys a big day on the 11th of No
vember? Is-t’s everybody see what
we can do to make the day one that
will long be remembered in Winder and
Barrow county.—A READER.
