- General Note:
- The Civilian Conservations Corps (CCC) was an employment program for unmarried men during the Great Depression in the United States. It was launched by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933 as part of his New Deal, and continued until 1942, when many of the men had left for military service in World War II. The United States Army oversaw the operations of the camps, which were located at sites around the country, including several in Florida. The men signed up for a minimum of six months and were paid around thirty dollars a month, plus room and board. The men worked mainly in rural areas on projects such as forest renewal, state park development, and construction of service buildings and roads.
- General Note:
- In Florida, each camp was allowed to publish its own newsletter. Many of the newsletters were sent to other camps so their advisors could learn from each other. The camps were directed to send a copy of each newsletter to the University of Florida. These newsletters include serious topics such as safety precautions and camp news, but many also contain humorous anecdotes about camp life and stories about individuals who worked in the camps. Many of the newsletters also feature hand-drawn covers and other illustrations drawn by camp members.

Revered by U.S.
Those who are loyal, true Americans will nev er fail to recognize Washingtoh's Birthday as a day of commemoratiLnV the birth of Amerida's most beloved citizen.
It is natural that we who love America should respect and honor this towering soldier and statesman who made this great nation possible. Those words still ring true, "First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts
---- of his countrymen." In
Answer to the question, "What held the patroit forces together in the
dark hour of the Revolution?",
Albert J. Beueredge fittingly and aptly answered, "George Washington and he alone. Had he died or teeoon seriously disabled the Revolution would have ended-- Washington was the soul of the Revolution.".
It is not the purpose of this article to argue vAhthor or not the great Washington did or did not swear, gamble, drink or toll untruths; personally we prefer to r,think h, did not do many of the
things modern critics seem to
think requisite of a true, present day HE man. We do have it that Washington was a real gentleman, ..... (0on ouaft6=

Sow, during the anniversary
dates of those tt, famous individu!. 1s George Washington and Honest
-:I Lincoln, who for their con,utive periods filled so well the
-ice of the president of this inion of ours,is a fine and very )copriate time to think of those c-',ngod ideals of their day and cs w;vhich were so near and dear to tl-; and how those same ideals shoul Lon the same to us and also to t-o:J2 who are to walk in our footprints after we re no more.
Even as Lincoln was so interest-, ed in thQ preservation of the govcrn-ment of our union which is ad:nittod by master intellects of the present to be one of the most perfact of the ruling bodies of the world if not the one most perfect. Also there are many dissatisfied with this same government and think. th'st they could, do bettor themselves Yet. there are educated people of the world who are not very f-miliar with the work of the, different officeos and in this case, how could they do botter?-Thoro- is no logical, reason for not supporting it.
The Value of a CCC Enroll, ment
When the Civilian Conservation Corps sent out its first call to the American boys they responddd wonderfully. There were many thouand who wished to got into the CCC that could nbt for one 'reason or another.
After th6. caf&mps Were established and evury things was put irito order the Educational Program was installed. This program gives to many the privilege of an educ,-.tion of which previously they had been deprived.
The value of a three to fifteen month 'hi.tch' in the CCC ,cannot be estimated. The very rapid, development of a boy's mind. and body during his camp life l(ave,s a great impression :upon his later..Life. The things tn.t he daily does.are impressed upon his mind-Lnd'thyobcr:..
come habits,, suc.h-as cleanliness of body and mind.
With the many -things. of interest as well as educational in the CCC camps a boy's time is takon up with so. ething of great value to him. In his daily contact with other
boys and with the knowledge gained by doing useful work he becomes a better citizen.
-Every one will have to acknowledge that the CCC -has been and will continue to be a very profitabliventure'. Probably .these-camps do not accomplish enough work to pay back-. dollar for dollar the money spent. for their maintenance but the value of the educational achievement and better understanding of. Life, that the boys receive, vwill amount to very much more than the money spent

Metts Side Camp News
Rev. Carlton of the first Methodist Church of Milton, Fla., presented I the Metts Camp boys with an interesting sermon Monday Feb. 11,1935, which wqs enjoyed by all.
Captain lMcKee informed us during his visit hero that Vev. Carlton would deliver us a message each Monday evening at 6:00 o'clock.
The Metts Side Camp boys seem to
be greatg)ly puzzled about the thought of breaking up house keeping and
buliding a new camp here. That seems to be all youcan hear them talking about at this time.
We greatly appreciate the interest shown in the educational work six Mr. Andrews, the C.E.oAo, gave them a lecture on the importance of an education,
We can truthfully say that we havE 100% attendance at this time.Very muc
interest is being manifested by practicailY all the bo a in camp.
