Schoolteacher Thanks All Who Lent a Hand

I would like to thank the faculty, students, parents and all the other people of Canton Local School District for all the wonderful and greatly appreciated deeds they have carried out.

I feel that my words cannnot express all my thankfulness and appreciation to all these thoughtful friends.

I would like, also, to express my appreciation to Mrs. O'Conner, Mrs. Niesel, Mrs. McDonald and Harold R. Walker for the extended effort and work they so willingly supplied.

I also thank the stores, local organizations and individuals who extended help through donations of food and money. And last, but certainly not least, I thank the women in the cafeteria who donated their time to prepare the meal and serve so many people (more than 2,000) in clockwork fashion.

I thank everyone for all they have done and would like to ask for their continued help through prayer.

Bow's Letter Asks Immediate Return Of 987th Batalion (Korean War)

The Canton Repository, Stark County, Ohio

Washington, Dec. 4 --(AP)--Representative Bow (R) of Ohio, said today that an Ohio National Guard battalion, in Korea for neary 10 months "should immediately be returned to the United States as a unit."

Bow wrote Secretary of the Army Frank Pace, Jr., that the "battle-weary" veterans of the 187th Field Artillery Battalion "should not be called upon to await individual replacements."

He suggested, instead, that the unit be replaced at the front by another organization, out of the regular army, reserve, or national guard.

The 987th, made up primarily of men from the vicinity of Canton and Alliance, O., entered federal service less than two months after the Korean war broke out. It has been in Korea since mid-February.

Bow quoted Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway, U. S. and U. N. commander in Korea, that the 387 members of the battalion have piled up enough service to be rotated back to this counry, but that release of personnel eligible for rotation is based on the availability of trained replacements.

The congressman wrote Pace:

"To require these men to continue in combat zones after having served their required period of time, with a record of gallant action, seems to me to be unnecessary."

A Soldier Writes Home (Korean War)

'If I Have To Go Help God, I Want You Both To Be Good to Mommie'

Collingdale, Pa, Sept. 15 --(AP)--A young soldier in Korea took a piece of notepaper from his helmet and wrote a letter to his two small daughters back home.

That letter was delivered yesterday to the home of six-year-old Rose Marie McCormick and her sister, Joan, three.

Three days ago, their mother was notified the Pfc. John J. McCormick, 28, paratrooper veteran of World War II and infantryman in Korea, had been killed in action.

This is what Private McCormick wrote to "Dear Joannie and Rose Marie":

"This is Daddy. I want you to listen and pay attention while Mommie reads this to you. Just try and make believe I was there, talking to you.

"Joannie, I don't think you'll remember me because you were a little baby when I had to go away, but I used to sit and hold you a lot, and when you were a bad little girl, I used to make you sit in a chair until you were good, but I always loved you a lot and I was very proud of you.

"Rose Marie, you should remember me because I used to take you out with me a lot, and I used to buy you a lot of candy and sodas, and I used to feel so good when people used to say you had eyes like mine. Remember the little puppy I bought you? Your Mummy used to tie a little pink ribbon around its neck and you used to carry it in your arms. You looked awfully cute.

"I want you both to know that I'd be with you if I could, but there are a lot of bad men in the world, and if they were allowed to do what they wanted to do, little girls like you wouldn't be allowed to go to church on Sunday or be able to go to the school you wanted to.

"So I have to help fight these men and keep them from coming where you and Mummie live. It might take a long while, and maybe Daddy will have to go and help God up in heaven, and if I do, I always want you both to be good for Mummie, because she is the best Mummie in the whole wide world.

"She has always taken care of you while I have been away. You see, kids, I happened to be caught in two wars inside ten years, and the reason I am where I am today is because I am fighting for what I think is right.

"That's one thing I always want both of you to remember. If your conscience tells you something is right, always stand up for it. You might be ridiculed for doing so, but in the long run you'll always find out that people respect you more for doing so.

"When you grow up to be young ladies, don't ever forget all that Mummie has done for you. She has often gone without clothes for herself so that both of you could have nice things. I want you to do as she says; go to church on Sundays and you can always pray for Daddy.

"So remember, kids, when you grow up, save this letter in case I'm not there to talk to you, and try and remember all I am saying, for it's for your good, and because I love you and Mummie so much.

"I'll be in a hole, fighting in a few days, in a place called Korea, so I'm sending you all the love that's in my heart on this sheet of paper. I carry your picture, and Mummie's next to my heart, and if I have to go help God, you'll know the last thought I had on this earth was for the two of you and Mommie. All my love and kisses. Be good and God bless you. Daddy"
