Allen, Students of Ca rnage and Con ditions in Battle-Torn Europe. Sixteenth Installment Chapter V. (Continued) Whan she had finished her story, Dorotliy Canfield concluded something like this: "That's what they all come back to. after their fit of utter horror at their life is over. It does them pood, apparently, to talk it all out to a patient listener. They always, always end by saying that even what they are livinff throuch is better than a world com manded by the Germans . . . what a perfectly amazing distrust that na tion has accumulated against itself!" They are sick of war: war weary and i sad. Set they will fight on. The will : to fierht is outside the individual will: ; yet it is not the will of the leaders, nor ; it is the will of the many combined ; in a common will. For the many are tired unto death of war. But for all that they will fight on without flinch ing. It is the national will the wilt deeper than the will of leaders, stronger I than the molten will of the many in ono purpose. It is the tradition of ! centuries: it. is the unexpressed pur j pose, perhaps unconscious habit of an i old, old people, united far down in the j roots of them: not so much by race, i for tits1 Franks are of many breeds not i so much by industrial or geographical ! ties or even political unity, though it 'approaches that; but hound most sure , ly by the sense of national tradition. A people is fighting. From a thousand villages with their primeval temples, with their lovely cathedrals grown out of the hearts of the race buried in the j shadow of their spires, from the shin ing rivers that flow through green pastures, from soft hills rich in folk tales of heroes, come the millions; ana ' from Paris, ever radiant in her vener 1 able vouth, come other millions who make this fighting soul of the nation. What if it grumbles as it fights; it will still fight on. Of course it is sick of war; but it will not stop. It is a spirit that is fighting in France, the spirit of a brave people. Prophetic We have in France a few .hundred thousand men and will soon have a million and more who are offering their lives in Service. But the whole Frencn nation is giving thus. And it is with out hate. One finds instead of hatred in France a feeling of deep disgust for the C.erman and all his works. The spirit of the French is not vicious. It is beautiful. When the war ceases that may subside, may retire to the under consciousness of the people. But it will not depart. It also will remain eternally a part of the salvage of this war. The Atonement By the time the transgression of our car had been sufficiently atoned for, dusk was falling. And Henry broke away from the gothic arches of the trees and made for a tavern. He had learned that one must take food in France whore he can find it, and ten minutes later we came upon him in front of the inn. talking in a slow loud voice to what was either the the inn keeper's daughter or his pretty young wife thus: "I said." Henry paused and nodded his head and beat tbe thing in with his hand: "we want some supper de jurnay toot sweet!" She shobk her hjpad and shrugged her shoulders very prettily and said she could not "say pa." And Henry laughed and went on, still enunciating each word dis tinctly. "Ah, don't tell us you can't 'Say pa:' say 'wee wee.' " And again he told her "toot sweet." That was the only part of the French language that Henry was entirely sure of that and "comb be-ah!" But we could not get It through her head. So we loaded our selves into the car and headed back for St. Dizier, where at least they under stood Henry's gestures, and we could get food! The Greatest Training Camp Our next journey took us to the greatest training camp in the allied part of the world. It is not the largest camp of course. It accommodates less than twenty thousand soldiers. But it is what might be called the past gradu ate college of all training camps. Here ten thousand men come every week from other training camps all over the earth, and are given intensive training. For six days, eighteen- and twenty hours a day, these soldiers, trained by many months labor n other fields, are given the Ph. P. in battle lore, and are turned out the seventh aay after Saturday night lecture on hate, and shot straight up to the front. In all France there is no more grisly place for the weak -stomached man than this training camp not even the front line trenches wijl kick up his gorge more sedulously. Yet at first sight the place looks innocent enough. One sees a great basin hollowed among the hills, and in the ten thousand acre plain one sees horsemen galloping, Roldiers run ning, great trucks and tanks lumbering over the field; men digging, men throw ing hand-grenades, men clamboring y4 :4 Sue over trench walls, stumbling over cra ter holes, men doing all the innumer able things that are learned by those who carry on the handicraft of the war. But when one starts with the first class and goes along through the day's work with it. the deadly seriousness of the training gets to him. The first thing the first class does is to gather around a sergeant major, who in a few simple words tells his pupils how to use the bayonet. Then they go out and use the bayonet U3 he has taught them. Then the pupils gather around another sergeant major, who tells them how to lie:, tha hulrl.irrDnailn r. 1, !-!.- tbe butt of the gun. At lonsrth thev are taken to a part of the ground where some trenches are sunken in the earth. Before the trenches are barbed wire entanglements and deep jagged shell craters. The imitation enemy trenches badly bombed by barrage lie twenty rods beyond. Taught Fierceness The men are taken in hand bv the i amiable sergeant major and taught to yell and roar, and growl and snarl, to stimulate the most murderous passion, and the simulation of a husky youth in his twenties of a murderous passion is realistic enough to make your flesh creep; for the very simulation produces the passion, as every wisp man's son doth know. Then the youths are lined up in tho trench, and numbered "one two; one-two: one-two;" clear down the trench. Then the order is given to go over the top. Kvery gun rattles on the trench-top, and the second lieuten ant goes over, in the English papers the list of dead begins "Second lieuten ant, unless otherwise designated." And in the war zone the second lieutenants are known as "The suicides' club.'" Well, the second lieutenants got on top. aim! down in the trench, number one hands his leg to number two clear down the line: number two boosts number one to the top. then number one lends a hand to number two and pulls him out. Meanwhile enemy fire Is hot. The liner iorms in open order. The blood curd ling yells begin and mingle in an ani mal roar that sounds like the howl or an onrang-ontang in the circus just he- fore it is fed at the after-show! It is the voice of hell. Walking to Meet Death Then the lino walks not runs, but walks under machine gun and shell fire to the enemy trench; for experience has proven that if the men run into that fire they will be out of breath and probably go down in the hand-to-hand, knee-to-knee, eye-to-eye conflict with knife and bayonet and gun butt that always occurs when they go over the top to charge the enemy trench. An they near the enemy trench the bestial howl rises, and as -they jump into the shell-shattered trenches the howl is maniacal. In the trenches are canvas bags made to represent wounded ene mies. The first wave over the top leaves these bags for the stretcher bearers. But by the time the next wave comes over, or the third wave comes, the stretcher hearers are supposed to have cleared the trenches of wounded ene mies, and after that every soldier is supposed to Jab his bayonet in every bag in the trenches, as he is expectefl to jab every dead body, to prevent an enemy from playing possum and then getting to a presumably disabled enemy machine gun and shooting our soldier in the back. Kvery time a student sold ier jabs a canvas bag he snarls and growls like a jackal, and if he misses a bag it counts against him inJhe dav's markings. Wave after wave comes over, and prisoners are sent to the rear, if there are guards to take them. If not prisoners are killed, and one does not waste ammunition on them. It may be well to pause here to say that in the gentle art of murdering the business of taking prisoners is not elaborately worked out. They learn that by rote, rather than by note. The Canadians, since two of their men were crucifien by the Prussians, take few Prussian prisoners. Here is a snap-back of the film. It is the Rue di Rivoli in Tarls. Two lanky youngsters in Canadian uni form are talking to Henry and me. wnat part or the states do you Canadians come from?" we ask. They grin and answer, "San Fancisco." AVe: "What's this story about you Canadians not taking any prisoners?" They: "Oh. we take prisoners all right, I guess!" We: "Well, how often?" They: "Oh, sometimes." We: "Come on now, boys, as Cali fornlans to Kansans. tell us the truth." The tall one looked at the short one for permission to tell the truth, and got it. Then ho said: "Well, it's like this. We go into a trench after them damn brutes has been playing machine guns on us. knowing as soon as we get in they'll surrender, but trying to kill as many of us as they can before they give up. Then they raise up their hands and begin yelling, 'Kamerade. Kamerade,' and someone says, 'Come on, fellers, let's take this poor beggar,' and we're about to do it when along comes a chap and sees this devil, and up goes a gun by the barrel, and whack it comes down on the Boche's head, and the feller says, 'No, damn him, he killed my 6ood Improved Corn Flakes Appetizing, istantial.Satisfvintf avid He Understands the wuj.ii'.!.au'.w"iuii pal,' and we polishes him off! Polishes him off and cleans out the trench." We: "Now, boys, does that always happen? How often do you fellows polish Fritzie off and clean up the trench ?" They (after the short one had nodded to the' tail one): "Well, mister. I ll tell you. It's got so it's mighty damn risky for any Prussian to surrender to any Canadian!"

Watkins, of Phoenix.) While on a recent visit to Los An geles, the editor of this journal called upon the manager of a large concern from whom we buy most of -our printing supplies, and being anxious to get the view of a dis interested outsider, asked him what he thought of the general business situation in Arizona at this time. In answer he proceeded to give us one illustration. Some months ago he, having become interested in a min ing prospect of some promise in Arizona, decided to go back east among some of his business friends and associates and "raise some cap ital" to develop the same. His plan was to go to about a dozen of his friends and ask them to put up a thousand dollars each along with himself for tbe preliminary develop ment. His plan worked out all O. K. up to the point of telling his story and right there it stopped as short as though it faced the U. S. army. And why? He was told words to thi3 effect: That just so long as the present state admin istration was in the saddle, or th same policies in effect, not one of them would put up a nickle. The stone wall was adamant in reality. This man added: 'It was the first time in my life that I ever failed to get what I went after, and had to back water." Is it necessary to write out in bold caps the moral to this little story? It is not unlike many other incidents that you have heard of or experienced certainly so if you have gone outside of Arizona to seek capital to explore the mineral wealth of this great country'. The mining industry of Arizona, comprising over three-fourths of the taxable wealth of the state, has had to bear the brunt of these de terrent influences. Constantly our present governor has effectually curtailed the devel opment and progress of this state by lending his encouragement, not alone to the honest laboring men which within itself is commendable but to the extreme radical ele ment that has been trying to hide behind the skirts of honest labor in Arizona. ' His attitude was first demonstrated at the big Clifton strike, wherein many workmen were- forced to leave the, camp afoot and even the mine managers had to flee the district to seek safety. What was the verdict of the militia upon their return from Clifton. One of them, who is now an officer in the aviation corps stated that within a day or so after their ar rival there, they knew what was ex pected of them to look out for the strikers to h 1 with the others. After some two months service at the camp, the militia was returned home. On the station platform here ' In Phoehiv, this same chap we are told, asked the governor w hen they were to get pay for this time in ser vice at Clifton. The governor's re ply was to the effect that he did not know, hut if he could get his hands onto the neckfc of the mine officials who had departed for a neighboring city, that he would wring the money out of them in short order to pay the boys. From that day to this Governor Hunt's every' attitude has been to the effect that whatever a striker or would-be striker did was as a good deed well done, whereas the non-compromising employer should be classed as a profiteering pa trioteer, or along side of the alien enemy. The fact alone that the governor has consistently sided with the strikers in all of Arizona's labor troubles would not damn him as no doubt the majority of strikes the world over are well founded but when it is proven tha the In dustrial Workers of the World were tbe chief instigators of these strikes it's a different talc. Not only that, but it was only four months ago that Mr. McClus ky, walking delegate for labor in Arizona, made the statement before the executive committee of the Council of Defense that he had "good reason to state that there were at least 5.000 I. w. W.'s in Ari zona at that time and that their numbers were growing. From other sources we have information that leads us to believe he is right.

I members are being carried on at this time in a number of camps. Vet tho governor, knowing all this, proceeded to deliver his famous message to the recent legis lature, in which he, damned the em ployers of the state and their friends and hugged to his bosom the poor little I. W. W. saying if there was such a thing in Arizona the best way to get rid of them was to simply ignore them maintain an "eloquent silence." Now, five of these men whom the governor would have had ignored were taken out of Arizona by tbe government, and have just been convicted in Chicago by a federal jury that deliberated less than forty minutes and given long peni tentiary sentences. Not only the acts of these men but the very doc trine of the order was the cause of these convictions. If there were 5.000 men. in Ari zona belonging to an order thai espoused the doctrine that it is right to steal or to kill, in the ordinary meaning of the term; if they were doing this openly, would you not be one to come out and take a strong stand against these men, or would you simply be content to say: "I am against disloyalty of all kinds whether it is with these men or the mine managers or those Phoe nix men who hung that poor devil not long ago I am against all law breakers" and let it go at that? Did you ever stop to think thai the doctrine of the Industrial Work ers of the World certainly the preachments of its members is to the effect that it is proper for them to get their "rights'' any way pos sible? Ask any man. who ever worked around a' mining camp if this is not true. It is a common remark to hear, "We'll get what's coming to us our rights or we'll . blow these blanky-ty-blanks off the map.' Suppose a man made that kind of a remark about you. per sonally, would you simply ignore him? Why should any man hesitate to declare himself openly against the I. W. W. menace. Has not the United States government declared war against these industrial pir ates? Isn't t'nele Sam's judgment sufficiently good for a standard? We say, yes! And furthermore, that, while we are not having the outlaw strikes of a year aeo. nor the incendiary fires we KNOW that this menace is here simply hiding its claws. And we purpose, and every loyal man should so purpose, to do all within human power to eradicate the evil, knowing that Arizona ran not and will not get outside capital new capital to come in and join forces with us so long as we coun tenance such conditions as have existed in the recent past. Just now a governorship contest is being staged in Arizona and the question in which we are interested is will Governor Hunt's mantle settle complacently upon the shoul ders of either of the aspirants It is not so much a question of who Governor Hunt Is backing, as it is. which of these candidates are backing up the ideas and policies of the governor. It is not primarily the man in which we are concerned, it is the principle. We believe that all men are inherently honest and mean well. About the only differ ence in men is the basic principles that govern them; principles that have become a part of the- man And if it so happens that of the several men who are candidates for governor that only one of them has had taught, pounded, or lmbeded into his very being the proper rev erence or loyalty to his country, so that he sees that the greatest issue in Arizona now is: "How- shall we view the I. W. W. menace and how shall we deal with the same." then it is up to every good citizen to lend his support to that man. There is an old doctrine which is as old as the hills no man can serve two masters, or two prin ciples. One is either for a thing or is against it. Are we for I. W. W ism or are we not? Fred Sutter has the backbone to come out and take a MAN'S stand against the I. W. W. The other democratic candidates either have not the nerve to no do else they ore in sympathy with the Hunt policies of fostering this element. Adv. fA'A'
