Plan Is Big Succe
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?
"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?
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

Learned Camouflage
Lesson Too Well
CAMP DIX, N. 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 ;

K. of C. Will Send
Athletic Outfits
Plan Completed for Aiding
Soldiers Now in Fight?
ing Zone
The Knights of Columbus are now
ready to put into effect the extensive
plans which they have formulated for
tlie aid and comfort of our fighters
overseas. This was announced yester?
day at the recular quarterly meeting
of the otcler at the Waldorf-Astoria
by Supreme Knight Flaherty, who pre?
This week. Mr. Flaherty announced,
two construction men and six secre-^
taries, together with the Rev. P. .J.
McGivney, - of Bridgeport, supreme
chaplain of the organization, and
William J. Mulligan, of Thompsonville,
Conn., will start for France.
Eacli one of the party will carry as
? few personal effects as possible, but
will take along 500 pounds of amuse?
ment material for our soldiers. This
will include tennis equipment, base?
balls, bats and gloves, boxinR gloves
and games?checkers, chess, dominoes
and packs of cards.
Other Officials to Go
"Perhaps before these men arrive
in France,'' the speaker continued, "E.
W. Buckley, supr?me physician, many
more construction men. secretaries and
perhaps myself will be on the way.
"Secretary Baker and General Per
shing have specifically requested the
Knights of Columbus to rush as much
of this athletic material as possible,
and as fast, as we are able to obtain
transportation facilities we will send'
the material, with secretaries, across."
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

Universal Training
In U. 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.
