You couldn't imagine any finer raw
material for soldiers than those
stalwart, husky boys; but it is
going to be a tremendous job to
lick into shape thi$ winter, the
crude, awkward ranchmen and
prairie, farmers that I saw drilling
at Camp Lewis. But the drill offi

it's going to be the making of the

What can you and I do m the
way of sacrifice that will begin to
match that, and thousands of cases
like it? What's a littk less sugar,

When asked how he was succeed

"Kauai has helped. Hawaii gener

to help more in raising the $30,000

What Napolean said about the
relation of soldiers' rations to their
ability to fight has been paraphras
ed by the celebrated Dr, Harvy W.
Wiley in an article appearing in
Good Housekeeping for November
an article of widest interest to
everyone with relatives or friends
in the various branches of the ser
vice: Says the famous food spe
cialist: 'To plan a battle is of
high significance, but the best
plans will fail it the commander
leads ill-fed or starving soldiers.
The first point that strikes the
student of military dietaries is the
generous portions that are dail?
issued to each man. Our food ad
ministration would be shocked at
the ponderous portions supplied.
The three guilding principles of
military nutrition are the follow
ing: it must be excellent in qual
ity; it must be free of all adultera
tion and debasement.

does not include any water or oth
er beverage drunk during the
day or used at meals. In other
words, the Army ration, excluding
beverages, is 4.3 pounds and the
Navv ration, excluding beverages,
is six pounds a day.
"The travel ration of the Armv,
where the soldiers are transported
and doing no marching, is some
what less generous than that of
the soldiers in garrison. The field
rations and emergency rations are
prescribed by the commander-in-chief
as the emergency may arise,
and, of course, are more generous
than the transportation ration.
"The most striking feature of
the Army and Navy ration is the
great excess of food beyond the
physical requirements of the sold
ler or sailor. Persons who are
overfed are threatened with dis
aster almost to the extent of those
who are underfed. I am fully
convinced that our soldiers would
be better off if one-third of the
food issued to them were cut out
