Fjreeport Known and I>oved Throughout the West The following letter is such as may give lis what is commonly called a ¦welled head, but it is written in all Bincerity and may be an inspiration (if inspiration were needed) to fur¬ ther and renewed efforts to make our neighbors' boys fael at home. To the Editor: ' - Some information carae to n>e dur¬ ing the past week that vnaf very sur- priskkg a-nd also very intereadag, and^s it will no doubt be pf equal in¬ terest to your readers 1 am giving it to you to pass along in any way that you see iit. Since the time tliat Camp Mills and the adjoining fields eame into exist¬ ance, the ladies of Freeport have have betn untiring in their efforts :;|U>. entertain the boys encamped there °»V their brief stay before going over sea. Thi.'s entertainment not only has been in the Chib Rooms estab¬ lished for the boys on Brooklyn Ave., hilt in the homes as well, where the boys have been entertained and every¬ thing possible done to make their stay here as pleasant as possible. That the boys have been grateful, there is no question, and they have shown their appreciation beyond the shadow of A doubt, but 1 have learned that today in many states and towns in the West, Freeport is well known, an<l the people who have come to know it so well do so with their hearts filled with gratitude for what 'has been done for their boys here. To the ladies who have tried to do their bit in this way, I am sure that this information will prove gratify¬ ing. Yours telly, Flora A. Porter. 129 Ai-cher Street.

WHITMAN DELIV. ERS LNSPIRING ADDRESS ON THE WAR (From Lynbrook Era) Rain on Tuesiday interrupted Aha ceremonies at the laying of the cor¬ nerstone of the new Town Hall at Hempstead, but it did not detract from the enthusiasm of the people. The presence of Governor Whitman and the troops from Camp Milla made the occasion memorable. It was shortly after three o'clock when a regiment of Camp Mills men from West Virginia, 1200 strong, headed by thq 149th Infantry band, marched to the scene and stood at at¬ tention while autos containing the The following graduates of the class of 1918 are entered in the Hemp¬ stead High School.

Hebrews Observe Day of Atonement Our Hebrews of Freeport and vi¬ cinity celebrated the Day of .Atone¬ ment Monday with appropriate ser¬ vices, beginnng at Sundown Sunday and continuing till sundown, Monday, with fasting and prayer all day. Ac¬ cording to the Jewish Law all per¬ sons of that faith over 13 years of age do not allow food to enter their months during that time. Morria Miller offered fervent pray¬ er from the open arch, where the scroll of the law was kept, when the Temple was builded at Jerusalem. He made special prayer for the President and his cabinet in their great responsibility now developing upon them. According to the Jewish teaching once eaeh year the High Priest en¬ tered tbe unfinished Sanctum Sanc¬ torum to offer up his devotions to the ever living and true God, in the room where were kept the two tablets which Moses received fiam the Lord at Mount Sinai, and he there made his special devotions for the preser¬ vation of ^ the household of Israel, the nation, and all mankind, with thn final appeal: \ "Hear Thou from Thy dwelling place, even from Heaven, and when Thou hearest, forgive."

The girls said they wanted this for "goodies'^ for the soldiers and sailors so the money was tumed over to Mrs. Davisson, chairman of the Ladies' Ommittee, and she will use it for helping to "feed" our guests.
The program was gvien by the Dolly sisters in songs and dances, and honiemada candy and ice cream . "were sold.
