GEN. PERSHING WINS HIGHEST THE DAYS OF REAL SPORT
HONOR IN THE MILITARY SERVICE

reason to fed that they are closely, in touch with the gTeat
events of the time. Incidentally there are three Terans in
the president's cabinet. It is pardonable pride that EI
Paso feels in the elevation, of military men who have be
come so closely attached to this city by ties of friendship.
Gen. Pershing, particularly, alludes to himself as an El
Pasoan and calls this his home; and Gen. Scott became
one of us daring his extended residence here.
On the military judgment, the acts and decisions of
these two men, high destinies hinge. The situation in
Russia is so critical that military considerations may lead
the United States to play a big part there, in the effort to
bring to bear on the common enemy effectual power.
Studying the situation on the ground, Gen. Scott will be in
position to advise the American government with sound
wisdom and practical knowledge how best to -proceed in
that area of war. And on the west front, Gen. Pershing,
first on the ground, will almost certainly be retained in
command of the United States field armies no matter how
large they may become in course of time.
Starting over with only his personal staff, Gen. Pershing
trill be followed very soon by a division of perhaps 25,000
troops. It is to be expected that the number of officers
accompanying this first expeditionary force will be much
larger than the regulations require, since it will be impera
tive that as many officers as possible, especially those of
high rack, shall become intimately familiar with the con
ditions of modern war from actual experience and observa
tion in the field, before the American forces in large num
bers are thrown against the enemy.
Then, as time goes on, more and more men will be sent
over. The field armies will be numbered by the hundreds
of thousands, and eventually by the millions. Gen. Pershing
has undoubtedly been selected as the man best fitted by
temperament, training, and experience, to exercise the
supreme command. It is possible that in course of time he
will have as many men under him as the supreme com
manders of Prance, Britain, or Russia.
N o one, in or out of the military service, questions Gen.
Pershing's ability, both professionally and personally, to I
uphold Jie best traditions of American arms among the!
trained soldiers of Europe. He is, first of all, a gentleman
in the finest sense of the word, and tie qualities of his)

aggressive or constructive work goes,
splendid dashing way about him, a toree or determination,
strength of will, and relentless sense of duty that make
for success in the field as they make for discipline and for
respect within the organization he commands.
Gen. Pershing is a hard soldier, a fierce driver of men
and minds; but mingled with that endowment so necessary
to a successful commander, and so valuable when joined
with initiative and with safe judgment, there is in Gen.
Pershing's nature a strain of tenderness, of fine responsive
ness tp the deeper motives of human action, the sentiments
that distinguish well balanced men from machines or from
half developed humans. He is a quiet thinker, reflective
and philcsophicaL Holding his emotions always under com
plete control, he is not ashamed to reveal glimpses of his
inner self, and thereby he proves the sterling quality of
his manly heart.
It is by reason of such contacts that human friendships
are formed and become intense and vital. And the men
serving under him quickly learn to know and appreciate
this side oMheir commander's character. He is just, he is
appreciative, and he is considerate, while sometimes almost
mercilessly exacting in a purely military sense. He has a
strong and genuine feeling, for the enlisted man. He has
li'tle patience with caste, and is democratic in his attitude
