A soldier should know how to write so as to sign the pay rolls, and read the posters that are placed for him. It is as much a patriotic duty to teach these boys to read and write as any other service you can perform. There is a worker for each county in the stae. No county has less than one hundred, or more than one thousand who, can not read and write. I was sent by the State Com mission as the worker for Rockcastle County. I make an urgent appeal to the people of this county that you at least teach one person how to read and write. There are four hundred people in th s county who can not read and write.
