Many Made Happy
By Free Trips to See Kin at Upton Clearing Weather Aids Sunday Service of Auto? mobile Association Plan Is Big Succe S3 150 Made Journey, to the Great Pleasure of Loved Ones at the Camp The storm and the clouds blew over just in time to make it right for the big trip d"wn to Camp I'pton yester? day. "Oh, I was so worried!" contided one little miss who, squeezed tight into a corner of one of the cars which the American Automobile Association is providing for free trips to Yaphank, clung desperately to a suspiciously bulkv bundle for "brother." "So worried," -he repeated. "All day Friday, while it rained and snowed -". I just couldn't 'hink about anything c!*-e except would it clear up. And then Saturday cam..*, and it didn't look much better, and and I guess I was pretty near crying, 'cause I did feel so bad. But- but it's all right now!" AH Felt Just That Way Which was precisely the way they all felt about it the entire hundred and fifty, who, in two big 'buses a-nd a flotilla of donated motor cars, made ? the journey yesterday. And that was i the way the boys at Yaphank felt j about it, too. It was all riprht, then,: when the bevies of relative**-, their' cheeks flowing from the sharp wind, swung into sight under the dancing sunlight, and the glad cries and salu- ' rations and the waving of handker? chiefs and muffs began preparatory, be it understood, to greetings oi' a more personal character. For. although, of cou?se. a creat hie soldier boy never, never gets excited in the manner of a tiny girl with a bundle for "brother,'' and never, never, never gives way to his feeling***?., still, in strict confidence, it ivas said at Upton yesterday that there had been an unusual amount, of scanning of the sky during Friday and Satur? day and a number of queries as. to the probabilities of tne weather that could scarcely be accounted for by a martial desire to promote, polite con? versation. The truth is that these trips have ?otnewhat more than "caught on." They have come to hnve a deep and permanent place in the life of the camp. Yesterday's was the third of the serk;. and from a news stand? point there was, perhaps, nothing especially notable about it. The 'buses and cars started as before, from Co? lumbus Circle in Manhattan, and from I.or.g Island Automobile Club in Brook? lyn. The cries, the greeting-- ?these were almost exactly as on the two previous Sundays. The entertainments at the hostesses' houses of the Y. YV. C. A. weren't a bit better, because they simply couldn't have been. But if any one thought that repeti? tion was going to take the shine off person was a long, long way from these little jaunts?well, that piciable understanding just how repetition works between this town and Camp Up? ton by the motor route. As one khaki-clad young man so elo? quently remarked, looking up at the sky when the 'buses were at length preparing to return: "Gee. I ? I hope it's fine like this next Sunday."'

J., April 14.- Because he camouflaged himself as a Hebrew soldier and persuaded his sergeant that he was entitled to the Passover holiday recently granted to all army men of the Jewish faith. Private Otto Richter, of Long Branch, has been sentenced by a regimental cour*, martial of the 311th Infantry to a term of six months in the ; ?uard house and a loss of one-sixth of Bis pay.

Colonel P. II. Callahan, who is in' charge of the headquarters of the Knights at Washington, also reported: "An important phase of our work," he said, "from which we expect great. results ?s the development of pro? grammes among the negroes. We ex? pect to find among the negro troops a large percentage of latent talent, and they will be able to entertain the white ' soldiers as weil as themselves. To meet this condition we are training colored secretaries. Later we expect; to extend this work to the Indian troops." To Work in Hospitals Colonel Callahan also said that the Knights intended to carry its work also into the reclamation hospitals at Ashcville, N'. <.'., where it is expected' that .".000 patients will he cared for.

S, Predicted By Rabbi Schulman He Teils CongregationJews of the Country Will Be Ready When it Comes Rabbi Samuel Schulman, speaking at Temple Beth-El yesterday, declared universal military training in America to be inevitable, fie added it would find the Jews of this country ready to do their duty. "Hebrews have never been cowards when it c;.me to a matter of war." said he. "I venture to predict that when military training is made compulsory in this country, as ii inevitably must be, the Jewish people will raise no voice of opposition." Speaking of the glory and thrill anc opportunity for service which the wai affords. Dr. Schulman disagreed sharp!} with the "unpreparednesss" speeci through which George Creel last we?! brought upon himself the censure o House an?! Se?ale. "I have long been in favor of ker,p ing our country at a high pitch of pre paredness," he reminded the congre gation. "I preached it here three year before the war. and ! say now that on of the greatest, lessons of this war i that, the United States must come t the general military training of all til youth of the land." Dr. Schulman lamented the impossi bility, during war time, of universa application for the precept to lov one's neighbor as one's self, but de clared this was more than offset b the generally regenerative effect a army life, with its high call to dutj its lifting of life above the sordit cverv-dav nlane of onemv making.
