LONGS TO GO BACK
"Carry On," the government maga
zine devoted to reconstruction of
wounded and disabled soldiers and
sailors, has in the October-November
number a very interesting article
from a wounded ambulance driver,
telling of his feeling when told that
he woud have to be sent home be
cause of his injuries that made him
physically unfit for further service in
He describes how after they, had
examined his wound under an X-ray
machine, that the young doctor in
charge of the hospital where he was,
said in very quiet and kind way,
"I'll have tc send you back to the
States." Continuing he says:
"And then all the old desires for
the sight of face and scenes loved
ones became a shame to me. HoSv
would I desire to go back how could I
w'sh that I might sit in the glow of
an evening lire and listen to the mur
mur of beloved voices? And I went to
my bed with c.n aching heart.'"
In th's sta-te of rebellion they sent
htm back to the States without even
his mother knowing of his coming.
When asked to help in the rehabilita
tion of his unfortunate comrades, he
refused almost resentful y. He
wanted to be a soldier at the front
and not thousand-' of miles from
there, unlit for thc service which he
ha,j always thought a so'd:er w?.s in
tended for. "And instead of that

He began to realize that he was

They were at the front, ga-ining dis-
tiniticn as soldiers. They were where
deeds worthy of a soldier were per
formed. His griends and companions
were being promoted, they were hold

"I found myself a private in the

At last he got a- new vision of life,
when one even ng a man came and
talked to him like a feMow human,
acquanted with human ills and mis

He was made to realize that to ho
