Forty-nine White and Colored Men Leave Today and Tomorrow Forty-nine young men of Lauderdale leave their homes here today and tomorrow for training camps and then later probably will go across the ocean to participate in the great struggle now raging on the battle fields of France. Nineteen white men will start today for Camp Jackson at Columbia, S. C. and tomorrow thirty colored men will start for the encampment., Camp Custer, at Battle Creek, Michigan. We give here the names of those who have today become soldiers in the American Army.
