Excerpt from "The Patapsco Peacemaker"
Excerpt from The Patapsco Peacemaker, a publication of camp #3:
"The other day one of our campers had a sore throat, so sore that he couldn’t speak above a whisper. Alice offered to let him stay in bed, but the fellow insisted that he could return to the road gang in some capacity that wouldn’t require too much exertion. As it happened the leader easily placed him that day. They needed a man to stand with a red flag and warn motorists that men were working ahead. Our man waved his flag at the first motorist who approached. The man drew to a halt and asked what the trouble was. ‘Just go slowly,’ our man whispered faintly. ‘C.O.s are working ahead.’ The motorist was extremely apologetic. ‘Thanks for warning me, friend,’ he whispered back. ‘I’ll do my best not to wake them up.’”
