"We Can Is-arn All Them M|uare Heat Is hnoc. in One Fight, Think Tuelie things to Heat It, and Invent New Tricks He Never Dreamed Of"—Discipline Is llest; Live Cleaner and Salute Itetter Than Other \rtnies. Brigadier General Watson (,'ommandet of Camp Lewis and the 13th Divl aton, in a recent memorandum gave out some stirring Information relative to the fighting ipialitP- noi abilities '" th" American soldier.- in France. The memorandum reads: First liuml new- <>!' or t •• ibr-uid i- always more satisfai lory to those of lis who have not >-t mih over thai vv lat vvh mn git through tin- papers. For , this reason we quote tw ■ p., --ige- from li tters written hy American soldiers: "The big show at iM.ate., i Thi.-rry has been on alt this past week, and we are ail on tiptoe watching the changes in the map us fast as tic bulletins come in. Most of us coine f-otn some division, and whenever one of us sees that his division is in the light In g .• ff damning his luck because he's not with his out tit. Oh, you don't know what a difference it has made in the morale of everyone: i think they were all disappointed at our slowness in getting over, at the appearance and training and equipment of our men. But now that we have so many here and so many inure coming, and they have ■ ither seen or been told how wonderfully our men fight, why they are just beside themselves with joy. The whole attitude of the officers of our allies has changed toward us. We are now THK thing. N'o more suggestion that we are newcomers and green at the game. No condescension. They listen and defer to our opinion, they adopt our views—the people, the papers—both British and French; they now love us ami believe in us. and we are all in perfect accord and sympathy. We are the new ozacle. the inspiration of the moment, the big brother, the unbeatable, the grand, the "niagnifique"—for we have put our men in. lots of them, raw and untried, but big. strong, enthu siastic, and resourceful young America —full of confidence in himself and his country, with faith that right is on his side, with faith in liis neighbor by his side, full of force and pride—he went in with his teeth set. and a deter mination not merely to stop the Roche, but to lick hlny to heat him at his own game, or to die in the attempt. And he did it. It is done. No mattei what temporary reverses may come, the American soldier has got the Boohe s number. • "I have talked to lots of them, tem porarily disabled, but you can see the future .In their -yes. It is the sanu story from all of them. 'Never you mind me. They fixed me. but it's al! right. We can lick him, man for man. We've got his goat; he won't face out men. He's licked, and he knows it.' That is what those say who have been in the fight. I can feel exactly the American soldiers' state of morale. It's physical and mental. He sees ahead. He sees big. He feels big. He compares everything over here with his own country and gives himself the best of It. His country has more money, more factories, more resources, more met,, more modern methods and appliances. Better Fighter Than German. "Does he credit the German with being a better soldier? 'Hell, no,' he says. 'We can learn all them square heads know in one fight, think twelve things to beat it. and invent new tricks that he never dreamed of. Why, Just you felolws wait till we get our army all over here, and in one bunch to gether on the line. Why. say, you won't see them Boche for the dust. "There la no discipline over here that compares With oura. Onr men have absorbed It. Ther heard ao many lectures In the states about the wonderful discipline over here. Ther arrived, took one look, and started" In with characteristic Amer ican spirit to heat It—nod ther have. Ther are nelf-dlaclpllned. Ther are cleaner than anyone else, they aalntc better, they work hard er at learning the various warn of fighting. Ther „re doing It volun tarily and ther have panned their Instructors. "We came back from French head quarters thrilled by the stories we had heard of what the Americans did in the last offensive. It Is still quite unbe lievable to me. 'The Americans saved Paris. It was the American divisions who stood against Germany's best. The American divisions are the best on either side of the line, the iJest in the world.' Such stuff said by French of ficers Is astounding. Soldiers who hav«. seen say that there is no army like ours, no such fanatical fighting men anywhere—that an almost religious passion is all through our troops and that the Boche has had his morale badly shaken.

Expressing its own horror at Bol shevism's rule of blood and ruin, the United States government this week sent suggestions to allied and neu tral nations, which. If accepted, will proclaim the Bolshevik! international outlaws. The government made it plain that it was acting in the interests of the mass of the Russian people who are striving to leconstruct their nation on a basis of self-government and democracy. Pointing to the unbridled reign of mass terrorism, execution, imprison ments and lawlessness, Secretary of State Lancing's note decalred: "This government feels that it cannot be silent or refrain from expressing its horror at this existing state of ter rorism." All civllzed nations, it was suggest ed, should register "their abhorrence of euch barbariem" in ohder to put a halt to the carnival of crime now rag ing in Russia. And It asked the diplomats to ascertain at once if the governments were willing to act — apart from any atmosphere of bellig erency—"to impress upon the perpe trators of these crimes the aversion with which civilzation regards their present wanton acts."
