What Has America Done in This Great War?
By F. A.
What are the Americans doing? He
fore England was in the war a year
she had fought four great campaigns. 1
The Canadians were war veterens be-!
fore a year was over. What have the
Americans done?
This writer has just returned from
a long visit to the American lines in
Franco, from the bases on the Atlan
tic coast to the outposts in No Man's
Land in the shell swept sectors of
Lorraine. He has had the opportun
ity to exumine the work of the Amer
icans and to diHcuss their future pre
parations with their leaders. The
best answer to the question is a sim
ple statement of facts.
First, let us understand the difficul
ties of the Americans. They were
hampered at the beginning by an al
most complete lack of organization
and by a very scanty war peraonel.
Trained soldiers were few. The reg
ular army was small and the state
militia was not equipped for modern
war. The government had refrained
from making preparations before war
was declared lest it should seem
guilty of ill faith.
The American problem was very
different from that of England or ev
en of the dominions. England could
work from her bases a home for her
men over to England to join prepared
operations a few score miles away
In France. The dominions sent their
establishments. Hut America was
sending her troops from an average

They are good fuel. They furnish

One medium sized potato gives you
as much starch ns two slices of

Potatoes at their best.
An old king is said to have tested
each cook before hiring him by ask
ing .him to boil a potato. Even the
best potato can be spoiled by a poor
To Boll Them so that they will be
"fit for a king," drop the unpeeled
potatoes in to boiling salted water
and cook 20 to 30 minutes. Dralr
the water off at once. If they are
cooked too long or allowed to stand
in the water they get soggy.
If you peel the potatoes before
cooking them you will waste time and
potatoes both. You may throw away
a sixth or even a quarter of the good
part of the potato with the skins.
Also, if the potatoes aren't covered
up by the skins while cooking, some
of the valuable material will soak out
into the water. 'Even very small pot
atoes can be economically used, If
they are boiled in th"oir skins.
- For Best Mashed Potatoes, peel the
boiled potatoes, mash and beat until
very light, adding salt, butter or oleo
margarine and hot milk, a half a cup
of milk to six potatoes. If dinuer is
not ready to serve, pile lightly in a
pan and set in the oven to brown.

What of the fighting men themsel
ves? How many Americans are at
the front? That question obviously
cannot be answered, but some facts
can be told.
The American troops in the fight
ing lines are more numerous than
many people Beem to immagine. If
it were not for the extravagant fore
casts of last year we would be pleased
with their numbers. One section Is
holding a considerable part of the
Lorraine front and another section is
with the Anglo-French fighting army
farther north. The numbers in the
fighting line are increasing daily, and
the best proof of the Americans' ac
tivity at the front is that In a com
paraively short time they had more
than 4,000 casualties.
"Their Motto is Attack"
They are keen fighters. They re
mind us at every turn of the Canad
ians. They have begun with the idea
of transforming trench war into open
fighting. Their motto Is Attack! At
tack! Attack! all the time.
When they took over their sector
of the Lorraine front it was compar
atively quiet. Now It has become a
field of continuous activity. "We
want this job cleaned up," say the
men. Some of the artillerymen" have
been found working thirty-seven
hours at a stretch without grumbling
to hurry on the beginning of their
These men Bay little about the
glory of war, but, they reveal a cold
calculated determination to end it.
Their frigid resolution Impressed me
as more terrible than any mere sur
face enthusiasm.
General Pershing voiced the senti
ment of the entire army. I met him
one afternoon when news from the
Northern front was very gloomy. He
seemed to brush the gloom away.
"There can be no question about what
the end of the war will be," said he.
"We may possibly have a time of hard
knocks and , buffets ahead; but only
one conclusion is possible a com
plete Allied victory."
The actual air situation Is this.
America has a very large available
supply of trained pilots, men who
have been most carefully selected.
These are, practically all of them,
college athletes. So many applied to
join the army air service that the
authorities were able to reject 90 per
cent, eliminating all except those most
thoroughly equipped, mentally and
Our Flyers Brilliant Work.
. The Americans also have an enor
mous supply of .skilled mechanics.
America has been able to lend many
thousand airplane mechanics to Eng
land. They have now errected a large
airplane training city in the heart of
France. They have today fighting
squadrons upon the Eastern Front be
sides American fliers with both the
English and French forces. The
brilliant work of these men is well
known. The speed of growth of the
American airplane force depends al
most wholly upon the supply of en
gines. I anticipate that America's
air strength will begin to be directly
felt as a real factor in the western
campaigns this autumn. It fs felt on
a smaller scale already.
No oye can complete a Journey such
as I have undertaken without pride
and confidence in the American ef
fort. I have to tell of a new force
whjch is coming into the war, a force
which comes fresh wnen some of us
are wearied, which comes with al
most unlimited potential man power,
and which comes, best of all, with a
resolute determination running thru
every rank to see this thing through.

For Cake Making
There is no smoke nor odor. Fried foods are free from
the taste of grease. They now are tasty and crisp.
Thev are made more digestible, for Crisco is all vege

Crisco gives pastry a new flakiness and digestibility.
Crisco always is of the same freshness and consistency.
It's uniform quality makes for uniform results.

Crisco gives richness at smaller cost, It brings cake
making back to popularity. Butter lulls are reduced and
cakes stay fresh and moist longer.
