THE STORY OF CAMP UH AGO. !
It? Location in North Carolina IN Ono
of Healthiest- in United States.
The Btory of Camp Bragg ls a most
interesting one. The reservation on
which the camp is located contains
128,000 acres and ls the largest mil
itary reservation in the United States.
lt is located in the hill country of,
North Carolina, the most delightful '
outdoor region that lies mid-way he
tween the Blue Ridge mountains and '
the Atlantic coast. Tho reservation is
foiling, partly wooded land, with ;
many open meadows and pure, clear
streams. A better idea of the place
is obtained when the visitor is told ,
that tho reservation is oval shaped, j
twelve miles wide ..'id twenty-eight!
miles long. Ohe end pt the camp is
near Fayetteville ana the other end
near Pinehurst-one a famous win
ter resort and the other one of the
most hospitable communities that it
is possible to imagine. For those
who really want to go to a large city
once In a while, the Atlantic Coast
Line railroad runs frequent exnruss
trains to Washington, D. C., and to
Richmond, Va. Thore ls no other
camp In the United States where you
can get to Washington on a week-end
pass and then enjoy tho benefits of
the prettiest city in the United
States, if not in tho world. The health
reports show this region to be one of
the healthiest in the entire United
States, and people go there from all
over tho country to enjoy the beauti
ful scenery and healthful climate.
The soldiers at Camp Bragg are
learning to be experienced artillery
men, dnd are learning in a country
where the marching and the shooting
are the finest in the world. The regi
ments are able to out-march and out
shoot any in the army. Big field pro
blems are to be worked out at Camp
Bragg-brigade .and regimental pro
blems which will call for the expen
diture of many rounds of ammuni
tion. To those who served in France
it will seem natural to hear all the
guns booming again, and to those
who were never in the army the ex
perience is one that will be remem
bered the balance of their lives.
Many an old-timer is re-enlisting
for Camp Bragg, and most of them
are expecting lo ?non** tho rcr-t of
their avniv di ya there, There are two
regiment* of pfieavy field Artillery
stationed there-"the ?lst i><? thc Sth
. -. t?oiYi motorized, There ar? .Many
opportui ?ties for tho .;...?. v.uo oil
lists nov/, as tho 21st is a ?rapidly
growing regiment and has many va
cancies for good men, whether or not
they are experienced. Service in the
21st Field Artillery will also give a
man a chance to complete his educa
tion, and will make a trained tractor
operator out of him. There are
schools in daily operation that toach
a man tho machinist's trade, also for
radio men (wireless telegraphy,)elec
tricians and carpenters.
The authorities at Camp Bragg say
that they will soon have a fine, large
farm, on which, then, men will be
taught scientific farming, and since
the reservation lies in the midst of
the far-famed Piedmont section, the
courses are certain to be very popu
lar. To tho man who comes from the
farm, or has the desire to get on a
farm, there is nothing like the tech
nical training that it ls possible to
get nt this camp. Those men who
come from a cotton raising State will
bo most interested in the course of
practical cotton raising which wlh
be taught by expert farmers.
In addition to all the above ad
vantages, the camp itself is well sup
plied with places of amusement for
tho men. Tho reservation itself was,
until recently bought by tho govern
ment, a huge hunting preserve, so
that game abounds on it. The lakes,
of which tiiero aro many, aro woll
stocked with gamo fish of all kinds,
and tho soldiers are assn red of plonty
of sport of this kind, and in all other
respects. Most of the lakes have sand

months the swimming is of tho very

The barracks aro now and com

livery night thoro is a movie, and oc
casionally a traveling road show is
secured and stops at the camp. Tho
camp commander made' tho state

of the best opportunities in the Uni

Miss Noyes, First Army Niu'so.
I Miss Harriet Decker Noyes, of
Manitowac, Wis., is the first graduate
j of the school of nursing of the United
States army to bo appointed In tho
! Army Nurse Corps. She will enter tho
j corps with the relative rank of sec
I ond lieutenant.
Miss Noyes, who has an A. 13. de
gree from Lawrence College, Apple
; ton, Wis., is the daughter of the Rev.
I H. A. Noyes, of Heppner, Ore. She
? entered the army school of nursing
j on Aug. 22, 1918, in response to the
! urgent appeal made for young women
j to take up nursing to meet the war
? needs. She began her course at Camp
j Wheeler, Georgia, and was later
transferred to Camp Leo, Virginia.
Her experience In women's and chil
dren's diseases was obtained from af
filiating courses at the Children s
Hospital, Washington, D. C., Peter
Bent Hospital, Boston, Mass., abd the
Lying-in Hosptlal, Now York city.
In April, 1919, she was transferred
to. the Walter Reed Hospital for final
Instruction and practice. As a mem
ber of the Army Nurse Corps she will
remain for some time at the Walter
Reed Hospital in a position of re
sponsibility, but later will be eligible
for a transfer to one of the army hos
pitals In the United States or island

An Appeal to the American People
TUREE and one-half million children * In Eastern and Central Europe
have no alternative to disaster between now and next harvest ex
cept American aid. For months these most helpless sufferers In the
* track of war hove been admitted to American feeding-stations only If
tragically undernourished, and have received American medical aid only
If desperately threatened by deutb from disease.
Ono 6 cent hot American meal today has saved a thousand lives.
Winter ls closing down. The money ot many nations Is valueless out
side their own boundaries. Economic and crop conditions moko famlue,
with tts terrible train of diseases, a certain vitdtor until next harvest. Inev
itably the helpless children will suffer most. No child can grow to health
and sanity on the pitiful makeshifts for food with which millions of Euro
pean adults must content themselves this winter. It is obvious that the
remedy can come only from outside.
America saved 0.000,000 European children winter before last. Nor
mal recuperation cut the need nearly in half last year, but unusual condi
tions have resulted In scant shrinkage of child destitution during the
twelvemonth just past. Tho reapon>,e of America must now decide whether
3,500,000 of these charges, in acute distress, shall begin to be turned uway
La January from more than 17,000 asylums, hospitals; clinics and feeding
stations dependent, en American support. There would be no tragedy lu
history so sweeping or so. destructive of those who caa deserve no evil.
Th? undersigned organisations, working among every race and creed,
many engaged also in other forms of relief, agree unanimously that the
plight of ?ese helpless children should have completo priority in over
seas charity until the situation ls mst This ls an Issue without politics
and without religious Unas. There can be no danger of pauperisation,
for the ?08,000,000 for child food, and the $10,000.000 for medical service
that ws s?sk, will relieve only the crMlcal cases. The medical supplies,
of course, must be an unqualified gift, but for every American dollar used
ba child-feeding, the government* nud communities aided furnish two dol
lars lu the form of transportation, rent, labor, clerical hslp, cash contri
butions and such food supplies as are locally obtainable.
America has not failed in the past In great heartedness. Sh* has
never had a more poignant call than this. Contributions should be turned
over te the local committees which are now being formed for this national
collection, or sent te Franklin K. Lan*, Treasurer, Guaranty Trust Co,
New Yerk City.
