THE.U. S. ARMY. I would like to
write a piece for The Day Book and
get an argument on it
I am a constant reader of The Day
Book and also read other papers, and
I see that the government is trying
to fill up the army. It is about time
that something is being done when
they are almost needed at a mo
ment's notice, but they had better try
to make some better inducements
than they have done in the past.
What chance has an ex-soldier got
when the people are under the im
pression that the army is full of bums
and loafers, which does not happen
to be the case. ' '
I have served in the army and took
special notice as I heard people roast
soldiers so much and I found that the
bums and loafers can be found in the
army guard house. The bums and

Chicago is not my home town, but on
account of circumstances I had to

I am under the impression that
the government should give a soldier
a chance. It will not do me any good
if they take a notion to do something
for their soldiers, but for the ones

They could get a full army any time

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT.
Now it is the Teachers' Federation

by people whose main thought is that
there is nothing wrong in society or
law or institutions that cannot be
corrected by charity plasters judic
