Mossnfres of Thnnks Keep Com
inp: to Contributors Fund
Total Now $180,275.
A contributor from Westport. Conn.,
who vlrtted New York la.it wk to ae
n parada of aoldlerii, writes to the fund
icr Impreaslons. Appreciating the en
Joymrnt the boya get from their amokaa,
he la confirmed In her opinion that
when they nay tobacco wa their beet
friend In Europe they are not exanrer-
Ming their feelings. She eent this letter
to the fund :
"1 am making a contribution to the
fund which has done and Is doing such
Mronderful work among our boys abroad.
1 watch The Sun and Tits EJyinino
Sun dally, and I mean to send along all
I can so that the boys who are now
writing their fine letters from Europe
to you In acknowledgment of what you
are doing shall always have their to
bacco. "Other things I have wanted to do
for the eoldlers have met with various
kinds of discouragement. It Is so dif
ficult to know what Is right to do and
(here are other obstacles In the way, but
with the moka fund all these are re
moved, "The knowledge that I can sa-c lip
my epare pennies to aid the Fund, and
tliat It will take them no matter how
few they may be, and see that they buy
some comfort to go to the men still
abrond, who must envy .their returned
cnmpanlons, Is a great happiness to me.
Therefore I Intend to remain a faithful
contributor when I can."
Accompanying the letter was a con
tribution which received the usual ac
knowledgement In the table that daily
clones this column. The amount of the
donation does not, enter Into the con
sideration ; small and large rivers are
treated alike, but when a clear motive
Is so well expressed, as In this case, the
Fund likes to give It a little more notice.

Ileicnlara Are Faithful.
To-day's list of new contributions Is
mainly made up of regular contributors
friends who have been faithful to the
soldiers' cause from tho day the Fund
started on Its much needed work. Tho
fact that an armistice put a stop to the
fighting last November did not dull their
minds to another Important fact, which
was that however promptly this Oov-
ernmcnt might be able, tn hrlnr hark th
tloldlers to their homes, where tobacco
of the kind they needed and liked was
have to bo left In Europe for many
One million of men will have been
brought back by the first of next month,
but n million will still be doing guard
duty In Europe. These round figures
explain why Ths Sun Tobacco Kund
should not bo permitted to become) a
"has been," like so many things that
were started and which wound up with
tho beginning and end of the war. Tub
8un Tobacco Fund aimed to bring com
fort and solace to American soldiers
abroad. It did not stop to ask during
the press of warlike events whether Its
tobacco was distributed to the front
lines only, but gave It freely to the roar
lines, to the men making .railways, to
the men packing supplies to American
soldiers; In fact, whether fighting or In
rest camp. It continues to do this work
now, and from the messages that come
from France and occupied Germany tho
tobacco gifts meet with the same re
sponse as at first from the soldiers.
"Keep up the good work," they say,
"we need tho tobacco as much as ever
wo did, and If we didn't get It from the
smoke, fund we often would bo entirely
Regular contributors nppreclate this
appeal and they are keeping up their
good work. In the list to-day these ap
pear: The Loan Star Boat Club, Joseph
Kohnstamm, Henry Bacon raid the war
chest of the Barrett Company's em
ployees. Help Kdncntlonnl Work.
The following letter was sent from
Germany to n, A. Bresee, Jr., by Edward
B. Gordon of Company A, 344th Machine
dun Battalion, Ninetieth Division, whose
address Is Educational Centre, A. P. O.
"Your tobacco has reached Its destina
tion and It Is now ours. Many thanks.
The box of tobacco was set In the dining
hall and we boys were permitted to help
ourselves. About S00 of us are going to
school In this place, which Is on the other
side of the Moselle River from Baarbeck.
The latter Is occupied by French soldiers.
The towns are connected by a large
bridge and they are rivals.
"Tobacco fills us with as much comfort
and happiness now as It did In the fight
ing days. I won't say we need It more,
but It Is fair to say that we need It quite
as much as we did before last November
We should be In a pretty bad way If
we couldn't count any longer on Tun
Sun fund. But we do still count on It
and It has never turned us down yet.
"We are of the Ninetieth Division and
we will be coming home about June 1
Glory ! Nona of us would give up the
experience we have had for anything that
could be offered, but we are ready now
to come home. My home Is Guthrie,
Tits Su.v press room received a card
to-day mailed April 20 from A. P. O.
781 as follows: "D Battery, Slid Field
Artillery, received a latge, supply of your
tobacco. We thank you."
Private Louts Flleder of Base Hospital
123 (A. P. O. 780. Franco) writes to a
smoke fund contributor: "We had some
real comfort last nlftht, April 19, when
each one of us nt dinner were given ciga
rettes sent over by Tux Sun Tobacco
Fund. There Is something nbout nn
American cigarette that every other kind
lacks. I can't tell you what It Is, and
perhaps we only fancy so because It
comes from our dear land. Do yon know,
a wounded man In hospital gets some
very sentimental views about homo and
friends he has left behind. A line from
one of thorn and a smoke from The Sun
brings these thoughts up. Well, we
smoked on you and thought how happy
we should be when all are well and
started back home. It cannot be long
now when we shall hear the good word
home! One of the first things I Intend
to do Is to see Tub Sun and tell It what
a good stunt was theirs when they got
up this fund. Thanks to the givers and
to The Sun."
A card Blgned by Raymond Delatour
comes from Chlnay, a town on the border
between Belgium and France, a little to
the Vast of the point where the Germans
broke through. It Is addressed to "Itcom
2640" and li dated April 16: "Received
carton of tobacco and wish to express our
appreciation. You sure know the way to
the soldier boy's heart. We had not
smoked for a week till your gift camo '

OFFICERS OF 77TH
GUESTS AT DINNER
Cheers nnd Indian Yells Greet
Gen. Alexander In Faro
DIVISION GETS IS'EW FLAG
ClCOino COmmlttCC IS Host at ,
Gathering Deeds of Hero
The officers who led the "hardy back
woodsmen from the Bowery and Hester
street and the East 8lde" so Gen. Alex
ander described his men of the Seventy
reenth Division ended their day In the
ballroom of the Waldorf, as guests of
the Mayor's Committee of Welcome.
They consumed much food that was easy
tr eat, were entertained with vaudeville
and listened to speeches from Mayor
Ilylan. Gen. Alexander and Martin Con
boy, who aa director of the draft first
rerded Yaphank Bennle and his pals to
Camp Upton. Rodman Wannmaker,
chairman of the committee and of the
dinner, presented to Gen. Alexander for
his division a big silk American flag,
and for the General's wife there was a
bir of many diamonds.
There were 4(0 officers at tho dinner,
fifty members of the Mayor's committee
and other guests bringing the company
up to about 700.
When Gen. Alexander stood up to
speak his public farewell his officers,
whom ho saluted as "comrades." were on
their feet first, filling the hotel and prob
ably Thirty-fourth street too with cheer
ing, mixed up with Indian yells and
"Ye-o-o-w's." The General said that
the Seventy-seventh had proudly repre
sented the "Imperial city." and that al
though organised for the purposes of
war It nlso had been the means of help
ing "the least of your cltUens to learn
tho lesson of patriotism and American
ism." The Soul of the Division.
He spoke of the soul, without which
everything else falls, and said that the
Seventy-aeventh had a soul, "This" he
said, "was demonstrated on the Vea'le In
the face of a foe which at times had su
periority of artillery. The Beventy
seventh was the first American division,
I believe, to stand on the banks of the
Alsne. Then In the Argonne, always re
ir.Vded ns Impenetrable, these -hardy
backwoodsmen from the Bowery and
Hester street and the East Side landed
right In tho middle of the forest. Faced
by obstacles which you can't Imagine,
they (,-ot away with It, which wasn't bad
Gen. Alexander wanted It understood
that there were other Americans In the
war. but no other division actually oper
ated In the Argonne Forest. For twenty-one
successive mornings they at
tacked, "Just aa Jim would take his din
ner pall and go to work."
"It bespoke a spirit which I cannot
praise too highly," Gen. Alexander said.
"You here to-night ought to recognlte
that they were some soldiers." After
acknowledging the service of the artil
lery and engineers In supporting the In
fantry, he said: "The result attained
by this and the other divinlona could only
have been achieved by the most hearty
cooperation of every element and from
a soul Intending to conquer. It came
also from the knowledge that behind us
In tho United Slates every effort was
being made. Supplies were sent us with
out stint, and we knew that the women
were helping us with their work and
All Nationalities neprrsented,
"This division Is perhaps more cosmo
politan than others. I had the good
fortune to be able to distribute some
of the rewards. I remember particu
larly Capt Herman Stnadle, born In
Germany : Sergeant Sing Kee, whose
parents came from China, and Sergeant
Abraham Kretoshlnsky There were
names from the Emerald Isle from all
over the earth and all were repre
sented among the men to whom honors
were given, and In the still more honor
able order of the little wooden cross."
When the honorary color guard en
tered the ballroom and placed the silk
flag beside Gen. Alexander. Mr. Wana
"Wv know these men do not like to be
pratjed for what they have done or
coddled when they come back. But we
have heard the word of Gen. Pershing
that there was no better division In the
army. We know that these men were In
the only division to go Into a wood where
Hannibal and Napoleon failed that they
went Into the wood In the face of the
foe ; that they went through that hell
The red In the flag, Mr. Wanamaker
said, recalled the 9,611 members of the
division who gave of their blood; the
white was for their purity of purpose, and
the blue was for the heavens that guided
"I desire to present this to you. Gen
eral," he paid. "Your nag, your colors,
the colors of your country."
The Mayor was Introduced hy Mr.
WanamBker as "John Faithful Hylan."
He acknowledged the city's apprecia
tion of the patriotism of the volunteer
draft hoards and their careful selection
of the men.
Mnyor Praises the Division.
"The brilliant success of tln allied
armies," snld the Mayor, "has thrilled
and warmed our hearts. What must be
the feelings of a city such as New York?
1 now offer to our military heroes the
congratulations of our citizenry on the
extinction of the peril which threatened
all civilization. The men of the Liberty
Division return to us bringing honors
from the battlefields of France. The
gallant stand of the detachment of the
307th and the 308th Infantry In the I
forest fastness when faced by Imminent
annihilation will be Immortal In Amer
"The perseverance which characterized
this little band of 700 patriots Is typical
of all the men of the division. That tho
men w iiii nuve lliuuf ll ihibpidiu to up-
euro a pence worth preserving and likely 1
men who have made) It posplble to se
?:"IrTJn,"Z . i!.",!"
the prosperity of our country Is the sin
cere and earnest wish of all of us.
Finally General Order 35, which Is
Gen. Alexander's formal valedictory to
the division, wns read. In It he said
that the Individual and divisional record
had "been consistently one of faithful
Htnice nnd a 'hish sense of duty,"
wlihed everybody future happiness nnd
pudliicd that all would "display In civil
life the same iiualltles of fortitude and
patriotic aevunon inuy nnvo bo fully ue

Booth Tarklngton, the bright, young

It Is not really a new masterpiece which
