BEHAVIOR WINS PRAISE
Adding -to his assertion that the
men of the expeditionary, forces
are leading the cleanest lives ever
lived by the men of any Army,
General 'Pershing saicUthat ' not
only are they forbidden', to uHe
strong drink and are protected
by stringent regulations against
other evils, but they have the
strong support of their own
moral courage. Their good be
havior, said General Pershirigjjis
the subject of favorable1 comment
by all Who come in contact with
them, especially by the Allies.
American mothers may rest
assured," said General Pershing
in his report to Secretary Baker,
"that their ;'sbns are ' a credit to
them and to the Nation for wWch
they : are fihtingr-T ' '
STRONG DRINK TABU ,
General Pershing's reply to
Secretary Baker bears out '"previ
ous reports concerning the ccjn
ductof the men of thejexpei
tionary forces It was announced
some time ago that Pershing- had
issued strict orders ' that all
Girting intoxicants must be avoid
ed , by the American 1 soldiejrs,
light wines and similar drinks
being the strongest they "we're
permitted to drink.
His statement to Secretary
Baker effectually nails the ca
nards that have been dissemmat
cd by Hun spies arid 'Waitorops
Americans to the effect that army
life was demoralising and that
the men would tome out of the
army worse than they entered it.
It has been the belief of govern
ment authorities that these
stories were spread in the hope of
arousing sentiment against the
war and causing difficulty in the
formation of the great forces that
the
United States intends settd-
ing across
the water to crush
the power of the Kaiser and His
1 1 ii ii hordes.
