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 ieudmnanyathouMndinof Mldlrswouid have to bo left In Europe for many monins. 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 without It." 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. 770: "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, Okla. 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 ' Don't let them fool you ; wo cannot get tobacco to smoko here."

DIVISION GETS IS'EW FLAG ClCOino COmmlttCC IS Host at , Gathering Deeds of Hero ism Recalled. 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 at all." 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 their prayers. 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 maker said: "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 and conquered." 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 them. "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 ican history. "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 monstrated ai soldiers."

VERSION IS MODERNIZED Schvyns Start Rehearsals of 'Wedding Bells,' Now Com edy on Old Thome. Booth Tarklngton, the bright, young Princeton graduate, who has done what he could for literature alnce leaving old Nassau In 'S3, feels his reputation Is now safe enough to como before the public ngaln as a dramatist However, It Is not really a new masterpiece which he will add to Tarklngtonlana, for "The Hon. Julius Caesar," the travesty In three acts with music, which the Prince, ton University Triangle Club will pre sent at the Waldorf-Astoria next Satur day evening, was written by Mr. Tark lngton before he turned professional. The version, which will be presented by the Princeton players as their first offering In two years. Is said to have been modernised, which means that Caesar lias been turned Into a rum hound. Concerning the musical num bers by Erdman Harris It Is announced that although catchy they are good. The actors will be protected by scenery de signed by W. McK. Bowman and former members of the Camouflage Corps.
