    A SONG OF HOMEI woke mvself this morning

    singing of my Heavenlyhome,

    Woke with tears from myeyes flowing fast,

    Happy tears that life wasover and my work onearth was done,

    Happy tears that I wpuldreach my home at last.

    I wish I could repeat againthe words of that song,

    Could write them that otherfolks might see,

    Could express that happyfeeling as I sang of myhome,

    That home where from trou-ble I'll be free.

    Words of the song left me before my tears were gone,

    They were about my friendsover there

    Friends who are waitingwhere trouble nevercomes,

    Words aboiit my happy homeso bright and fair.

    I know my health is failingand that's home not faraway.

    I know that soon it's gloriesI'll behold

    I long to meet my saviour inthat home . beyond theskiess,

    I'll soon be gathered safeinto the fold.

    In the tune I woke singing Ising these lines I write

    But the happy words no morewill come to me,

    But once more I hope to singthem when I reach myhappy home,

    That home of which I sang sosure and free.

    Soon I'll hear my saviourcalling and I'll gladly hasten

    homeWhere unhindered his praises

    I will singWith earth's trials all forgot-

    ten I'll be happy evermore,

    There no one can heartacheto me bring.

    Yes, the day is fast approach-ing when I'll hear mySaviour say

    Weary pilgrim come and en-ter into rest.

    That awaits all my peoplewho are faithful to the.end- -

    You tried to meet with cour-age every test.

    I have trusted in my SaviourHe has safely led me throughJust a few more weary steps

    I'll goThen I'll be at home foreverTrouble all left behindNo more worry, pain or

    heartache will I Know.Rebecca Jones.

    I am very sorry I could notvisit my friends and comrades- - You all know me as Ihave lived in this vicinity for35 years and have raised afamily of fourteen children;and you all know my past record- - I have two sons andthree sons in laws in serviceserving over seas. L naveworked three years and a halfm essential war industry 36odays a year. I am a UMWAand have worked in all of thecoal fields in Letcher County,Kentucky. I am a World'sWar Veteran and I know whatthe service men need whenthey return home. They needthe liberty they are fightingfor. I am opposed to the FeeGrabber that donesn't makean honest living. It is a factthat when some of our boyscame home on a furlough theywere chased around by thelaw and were robbed of theirhard earned money. If I amelected this will stop. I ampleading with the fathers andmothers of the servicemenboth at home and abroad fortheir votes to help me- - I amsixty-thre- e years old and amwell qualified for the job. Iwill try my best to build theroads that has son long beenstarted, I will give everybodya fan: and square deal according to law.

    A few weeks ago I was riding a bus and there was a ladyon the bus who had a smallchild with her, aand the driver said that it would cost herHalf fare for the child. Thewoman protested since thechild was iust about three

    years old but eventually paidthe fare. But the point isthere was a young girl got to payher fare and shewas clothed only in shorts anda halter (or what ever thatthing is they wear there,) andshe and the bus driver flirtedwith each other and he saidno 'fare honey. She had herlips and nails painted deepred. This girl was married toG. I. Jim who is now restingsomewhere in Europe beneatha white cross- - Sure this girlmarried him for that fiftydollars a month, (or shewould respect him more)G. I. Jim's mother sits at homelooking at his picture with abroken heart thinking howthis girl did her son. Surethe fifty dollars a month stillgoes on but the beer halls getit all. Does this girl belongin Letcher County? No, shedoesn't. There is no motheror father who wants theirsons done that way, so whydon't you all get busy andelect the officers that willstop all of this. It is only toprotect our boys who arefighting for freedom andhome but there is plenty ofthem going to be disappointedjust because you didn't try toprotect him while he wasfighting to protect you-- 1 couldhave come around and lec-tured you all and visited allmy friends but I think it wasmy duty to stay on the joband help bring our boys homesooner.
