Young is one of the 19 survivors of , the "Princess Pats" Canadian regi- ment, which wss wiped out by gas ,. attacks and a charge at Ypres early hi the beginning of the European war. He passed through here yesterday as ':. a member of the Fijian contingent bound for the third time to the front, although he has twice been discharge ; ed for wounds received in previous - encounters with the Huns. "You see. it was this way," do s Young, who is a California, explained: - "I and two companions were out on - scout duty with an armored car. Wo - had been retreating for three days and wore near the Franco-Belgian border. About all we were getting to eat was what we picked up in deserted t villages. We were passing an orchard - in which were some big red apples We knew that the Boches were only ' about a ouarter of a mile away, but we thought we were well concealed and that we could escape anyway wits thm armored car.

One of th fallows remarked: 'Bet that red ham ot it this time,' We had com - minted on the fact that the barn, thn ? v most conspicuous thing In sight, was : '' ataniltr.r aa we Dassea it a tew mnmpTita before. I -Rrrt it wasn't the barn. When we lot back to where we left the car the , only thing we could find was a rear ' nind wheel Can you beat that for luck? But the apples were worth it. only we had to throw most oi mem away to keep ahead of the Germans, who were getting mighty near by that . time," At 'Em With Bayonets ' And It is In this casual.

Specific details of his experiences he purposely forgets, while he amused hia listeners with tales he and his mates while away time with in the trenches. He was specific about one thing, when pressed for details. "It was about half past two in the afternoon when we made the charge at Ypres," and that is as far as he permits his mem ory to go back. But with all the optimism of the youthful soldier, he gaily went aboard the steamer yesterday, shouting to his new made friends: "So long. I'll see you on my way back from Berlin.'

McVeigh, superintendent of the station at Kalaupapa, yesterday. Supt McVeigh is now in Honolulu on one of his regular visits. "i know nothing about the story that the federal authorities are plan ning to give up their station on Molo kai or turn it over to the territory," declares Mr. McVeigh. "It is true that I would be glad to get the equip ment that there is in the federal sta tion at Kalawao and have it shipped across the island to Kalaupapa, for there is much in it which . I could make use of." With the departure of Dr. Donald H. Currie from Honolulu on Wednes day to take charge of the United States public health service in Bos ton, it was reported that recommenda tions would be made to federal au thorities in Washington that the fed eral leprosy investigation at Kalawao be given up because no work of much value was being done there.
