MAJOR IRIS I. MC[LELA
WRITES HOME
Shortly after America satisfied
the yearning of every true American
heart and declared war against the
Kaiser. Major Orris I. McLellan
offered his services to Uncle Sam,
but he was too old-on paper. The
major, however, thinks a man is as
old as he feels and wasn't a bit
bluffed by the regulations-no, not
even the fraction of a bit.
So he made his way to France to
join anything in the fighting line
without further loss of time. While
he was waiting for the decision, a
Frenchman sought to inveigle him
into one of those propositions where
you put your money into a certain
venture and spend the rest of your
life wondering why you did it; but
McLellan was too old a fox for that
-this was one time when 64 years
became a handy asset. He was shot
and painfully wounded by the
Frenchman.
So McLellan spent a number of
weeks in the hospital and when suf
ficiently recovered, he joined the
Foreign Legion and immediately be
came a candidate for future bullets
-as anybody will tell you who
knjws anything about the Foreign
Lea Ion, the most famous organiza
tion in the war, and the one to which
is ever assigned the posts of great
est danger and honor.
The following letter by McLellan
to his old friend. B. P. Sullivan,
president of the Public School Ath
letic League of New Orleans, tells
more in detail of his life in the Le
gion, the principal qualifications to
enter which are a desire to fight and
an ability to stand the "gaff," and
is a sermon, in itself on the text,
"Never Give Up":
"I am enjoying the best of health
and holding my own with the rest
of the first-class soldiels in 4Le Le
gion Etranger' (Foreign Legion);
five hours' real drilling every day,
and it must be very bad weather
when we do not go out for drill.
We drill full equipment like the pic
ture of a soldier on this note paper,
and the step is very quick. The
Foreign Legion is .the most cele
brated fighting division in the French
army; all of them have won the
War Cross and many other high
honors; they are generally selected
for dangerous duties; they have
never failed, nor have they been de
feated. It is said that fifty-one dia
lects are spoken in 'Le Legion.' I
counted twenty different nationali
ties in my company (the First Com
pany, First Etranger) and there may
be more. The essential qualifica
tions are a desire to fight and first
clam physical condition. Ta is
way I at 44 years old was accepted.
The French soldier is well take.
care of in every respect, and is a
frst-class ighter.
"As I must go out for some exer
cise, I must close, hoping this finds
you and yours well and properous,
I remain, very sincerely, yours rs
spetfully,
"0. J. McIELLAN,
"This is the military way I sig
my name:
lv Etranger.

"Mezimlerix sia Pranee."
EVERY SOLDIER WILL
WEAR NUMBERED TAG
To insure prompt identification
of enlisted men of the army who
may be killed or wounded, a num
bered tag system similar to that In
the British and French armies has
been adopted by the War Depatt
ment.
Adjutant General 'MeCadn an
tounced Friday night that a nuam
ber will be stamped on the metal
identifcation tag each soldier is re
luired to wear, and that a similar
umber will be placed opposite the
nan's name in the War Department
'oster.
The new system will be put into
