!'. K1 SERVICE WHY VARIOUS MEN CAN NOT SERVE IN THE ARMY LIE B DISQUALIFIED Continuation of Records of Local 'Board Many Reasons for Being Excused from Mil itary Service The list published the other day by the Daily Citizen, of men disqualified for military service, was by no means the entire list of those excused from service in the army. : The record is a long one, and is con. Ktantlv beinir added to. Some of the ineligible have been crippled from birth, but most of the disqualifying " ailments have been acquired. In eith er ease, they are to be commiserated, because they can have no part in fight ing for their country. ' . It is solely for the purpose of ac quainting the public with the facts, so that they may not unjustly suspect this one, or that one, of being a slack er, that these lists are being printed. There ought to be some kind of a button, showing exemption for cause, supplied to each perton who is dis qualified, or who has been discharged from service. This is the custom in Europe. The local board's records show the following persons exempted, and tin. reason why: Richard B. Tallet, Tittsburg, tuber culosis. Lester Simeon Bird, Weir, poor de velopment, flat chest, poor vision. Thomas Stobart, Girard, syphilitic affection of the eye. Ralph Braidwood, Weir, mitrol re gurgitation. Hosea C Gunby, Baxter, defective vision. Win. Henry Marshall, Galena, de- feetive vision.

My Dear Sister Mabel: How glad I was to get your letter. It was the 2nd letter from you and I believe I have answered it, but I dont know for sure so 111 write again for really Mabel I have so much to do and think of that I dont have time to write a letter very often. But Mabel I want you to write every oth er day if you possibly can. You dont know how much a letter means to a soldier. Well, at last I am permanently lo cated, that is, I have been transferred to a company. I am,now in provis ional Field Hospital Company D. You see there are three branches of hos pitals. They are: the First, next to the firing line, is the Field Hospital; next is the Casual Hospital and away, back is the Base Hospital There are 3 or 4 Cherokee county boys in my company, but none of my old acquain tances were put in here, we were scattered about Some are in Sanitary Trains and others in Ambulance Com panies. We have several charts of the human frame or body In our room and the surgeons lecture us on it Then we take Field Drill and Marching; in fact, everything but guns and we must not use them. Our weapons are stretchers and first aid kits. I know it will be awful to be out there on the front without a rifle, but we are al lowed to carry a hand axe to chop wires, houses where men are impris oned and woe unto the dirty Hun that comes in reach of me ax. I sure am tired when night comes after drilling all day. But we must both shave and wash our clothes all after retreat at 5:30 in the evening. I went to the Y. M. C. A. last night and saw a movie. They give one or more movies a week, all free for the boys. Also I borrowed a book from the Y. M. C. A. Library. It is the "Patrol of the Sun Dance Trail," by Ralph Connor. Read it if you can get it for it is good. I have a letter from Marie. I am so glad they all think of me, for goodness knows how I long for home. But as I must stay here I am contented and eager to go across and see the end of the war. I hope to be there for the big drive in the spring. If I stay here you must come and see me. But they say for us not to have relatives come to see us for a while as we might leave here soon I saw a string of infantrymen from Funston and a string of artillerymen and cannon. There were 30,000 men and it took over two hours for them to pass us on their way to the ship ping station yesterday. Some were singing: "Where Do We Go from Here, Boys?" Well, sister, I will close. Answer soon and love to all. Walter C. Allen, Pvt. F. H. Co. D., M. O. T. C, Fort Riley, Kan. Tell Dan and Treacy I sent them a card. 16 Co. 164 D. B. Camp Funston, Kas. Capt Ed. Hiatt, Dear Caption: We had a fine trip up here and we went through the re ceiving station at Funston and we are located out Sty the rifle range. There are about 5,000 men in this camp, as Camp Funston is full of men, which is the 10th Division. I showed my discharge papers to my. Commanding Officer and he is trying to run it down for me.
