After dInner I trle(d to wash out
the dixie with cold water and a rag,
and learned another maxim of the
trenches-"It can't he done." I slyly
watched one of the older men from
another section, and was horrified to
see him throw into his (lixie four or
flive doul) handfuls of mud. Then he
poured in son water, and with his
hands scoured the dixie inside and out.
I thought he was taking an awful risk.
Supposing the cook should have seen
hint ! After ialf an hour of unsue
cessful efforts I returned my dlixie to
the cook shack, being careful to put on
the cover, and returned to the hillet.
I'retty soon the cook poked his head
in the door and shouted: "I-Iey, Yank,
comae out here and clean your lixie !"
I protested that I had wasted a half
hour on it already, and had used up
my only remaining shirt in the at
tempt. With a look of disdain he ex
claimed : "Blow me, your shirt I Why
in didn't you use mud?"
Without a word in reply I got busy
with the mud, and soon my dixie was
bright and shining.
Most of the nfternooq was spent by
the men writing letters home. I used
my spare time to chop wood for the
cook and go with the quartermaster to
draw coal. I got back just in time to
issue our third meal, which consisted
of hot tea. I rinsed out my dixie and
returned it to the cookhouse, and went
back to the billet with an exhilarated
feeling that my (lay's labor was done.
I had fallen asleep on the straw when
once again the cook appeared in the
door of the billet with: "Blinme me, you
Yanks are lazy. Who in a-goin' to
draw the water for the mornin' tea?
Do you think I'm a-goin' to? Well,
I'm not," and he left. I filled the dixie
with water from an old squeaking well,
and once again lay down in the straw.

In Tommy's eyes a lance corporal is

help him draw the next (lay's rations,
also toil me to take mmy waterproof.
Every even ing, from (eachi platoonm or
machine-gun section, a lance corporal
andl prIvate go to the quartermaster
serg'ant at the company stores and
draw rations for the following day.
The "(uart er," as t he quarte rmaster
sergeant is called, receives danily from
lie ordlerly room (captain's ofiee) a
slip showing time number of men en
titled to rations, so there is no chance
of puttinug anythinmg over on him. Many
argumenits take place bietween the
I"quar-ter" andl thme platoon noncom, but
the former always wins out. Tommy
says the "quarter" got lis job because
lie was a burglar in elvii life.

How I envied him. But when the issue
commenced my envy died, and I real
ized that the first requisite of a non
commissioned oflicer on active service
is diplomacy. There were it) men in
our section, and they soon formed a
semicircle around us after the corporal
had called out, "Rations up."
The quartermaster sergeant had I
given a slip to the corporal on which
was written a list of the rations. Sit
ting on the floor, using a wooden box
as a table, the issue commenced. On
the left of the corporal the rations
were piled. They consisted of the fol

them "jaw breakers."

The "bully beef," spuds, condensed \
milk, fresh meat, bacon and "Macono- C
chic rations" (a can filled with meat, '
vegetables and greasy water), had been c
turned over to the company cook to f
make a stew for next day's dinner. He t
also received the tea, sugar, salt, pep- i
per and flour. <
Scratching his head, the corporal <
studied the slip issued to him by the
iuarter. Then in a slow, mystified 1
voice he read out, "No. 1 section, 19i
men. Bread, loaves, six." He looked t
puzzled and soliloquized in a musing (
"Six loaves, nineteen men. Let's see, I
