War Can't End for Long
Time, Writes G. R. La-
made, rormer btudent.
2 BROTHERS SERVE
"Thank God You Have Us
to Spare in the tight
George R. Lamade, a graduate of
(he University of Missouri, who went
to France with the University ot Mis
souri Ambulance Unit, says in a let
ter to his father that the end of the
ar is not yet in sight. He writes:
I am not going to be home, as this
,rar cannot be over for a long time to
come. Russia's condition Is deplor
able, and Italy's inability to stand up
under a stress may weaken French
norale. Unless something happens
la those two countries, I am afraid
that the effect ot France's and Eng
land's successes on the Aisne and In
Belgium will not be fully realized.
The Germans are wonderful fight
ers. They should be supporting a
worthy and not a despicable cause.
Many of the men arc among the brav
est fighters in the war, and many of
their officers are noted for personal
valor. But what Is such merit when
the cause is in error? More and more
I must say cheers for the men, but
d n the system of despotism which
drives them on to unworthy ends.
This letter should reach you on or
about Thanksgiving day. I hope it
will be an Incentive to you to thank
God that you have two sons to spare,
if need be, In order that German
kultur may not compass the earth.
The war is not over by a whole lot,
and there is but One who knows the
final outcome. As we sfee It, as every
Indication points, there is. only one
side which can win, but there are
many costs at which that side can oh
tain victory. And while we are not
a bit afraid for ourselves. I nightly
pray for a peace which will take
Ralph and me home to those who are
awaiting our return so patiently.
Some Valuable Experience.
Yesterday I received the song sheets
and have tucked them away until
some long cold day this winter when
my section, and I do hope to have one
by then, is getting restless. Won't it
be fine to call them together and sing
some good old home tunes? I am
sure it will enliven us all, and make
us glad that those at home are think
ing of the many little comforts for us
as well as the larger ones.
I feel that this experience has done
and is doing both Ralph and me an in
calculable amount of good, and while
it is not pleasant being away from
home for such an indefinite period,
still, if it makes men or us, I am sure
you and we both can well afford to
suffer the temporary hardships.
"We have picked up some very beau
tiful vases made out of "75" shells but
won't be able to send them home just
yet. much as we should like.
"We learned today that we would not
be dismissed from this school until a
day or two before Thanksgiving, and
then we may or may not have a "per
mission," according to the American
authorities In charge. "We surely
hope we will, for the work here is
hard and steady, and we will need a
little rest before being assigned sec
tions to which to report.
Work In Reconstruction.
We were paid yesterday, and we all
were given sergeant's pay. This is
also what the men received who fin
ished the last term in the school for
officers. However, our Immediate
concern is to successfully pass the
course and it is towards that end that
we are quite earnestly working.
This morning we spent four hours in
two automobile revision parks and
they both were tremendously interest
ing, not so large or well organized as
the one we visited about a month ago;
Just before coming here, but fine ex
amples of what can be done through
Intense specialization. We saw every
thing from the entrance of worn-out
cars and the scraping of the mud and
oil from them, to the assembling of
the re-built and freshly painted cars
of all types and weights, again ready
The fact that we are allowed only
four blue envelopes a month (said en
velopes may contain more than one
letter) is accountable for my not
hearing directly from Ralph thisl
week. But I have seen two boys from
the sector In which he Is located and
they both say that he Is getting along
la fine shape and doing his work in
the same enviable way. Lucky fel
low, he has received all the packages,
, hut I will get my share before long.
A Kitchen 3Tade of Boxes.
Things have been going fine for me,
ta including the extra work which is
kfof sprung upon us, but which, of
coone, isn't doing us any harm. For
Instance, this morning five of us went
down to the station with trucks and
unloaded coal. This is part of the
winter's supply. During the last
week we built a new kitchen out of
Packing boxes. If any one ever says
that a good little house can't be built
from boxes, I know what to tell him,
for we certainly built a good one.
ar section was the first to build such
a kitchen and since then several other
sections have tried to build them
selves the same kind, but naturally
they did not do as good a job as we.
We were out on a 21-hour trip the
other day and while out I saw grow
ls the first mistletoe I had ever seen
to its natural condition. It was grow-
