A Plea Against the Use of To
bacco in the Army.
In regard to the "smoking fund"
for our soldiers in France, will you
permit me to call attention to the
attitude of West Point and Annap
olis toward tobacco. These two
government schools prohibit its use
entirely. A recent report says:
"Hundreds of boys applv for ad
mission to the naval academy and
one-fifth of all who are examined
are rejected on account of heart
disease, which the surgeojis say is
caused by smoking cigarettes." Dr.
A. E. Gi Ison, of the U. S. Navy
gives the following testimony as to
the effects of smoking upon the stu
"ist. It leads to impaired nutri
tion of the nerve centers.
''2nd. It is a fertile cause of neu
ralgia, vertigo and indigestion.
"3rd. It irritates the mouth and
throat and thus destroys the purity
of the voice?
u4th. By excitation of the optic
nerves it provokes amaurosis and
other defects of vision.
4V>th. It causea a tremulous
hand and an intermittent pulse.
''6th. One of its conspicious ef
fects is to develop irritability of the

upon which the development of the
The annual report for 1013 of
the British Anti-Tobacco and Anti

world are upon the European war:

district alone; S,000 were at once re
jected as physically unlit, and only
1,2UU finally passed the doctors.
Tho chief cause of unfitness was
proved to be smoking bv boys and
young men." *
From that time special attention
has been given to this subject, and
now in all the eight commands of
the British army the general officers
are imposing more or less stringent
regulations by means of local or
ders to check the habit of cigarette
smoking among the troops. Sur
treon-General Sir W. L. Gubbins,
and Director-General ?Sir Alfred
Keogh befoie him in their annual
report in the health of the home
