NINETY-FIRST WILL HAVE UNUSUAL PARI IN HISTORY OF WAR PERSHING PRAISES COAST MEN TRAINED FOR BATTLE AT CAMP LEWIS. DIVISION ACTIVE THROUGHOUT Piecemeal History Iteveals Valor of Troops From Northwest—Clever Military Work Credited. A brilliant chapter In the history of the world war will be that in which the valorous deeds of the 91st division, mo bilized and trained at Camp Lewis, are chronicled. To the Washington bu reau of the Portland, Ore , Journal The Bugle is indebted for the brief sum mary of the campaign of the 91st here with: "The fragments of news that have come from time to time, pieced togeth er from official reports and devoid of descriptive embellishment, neverthe less show that this division has distin guished Itself fn two of the hardest campaigns of the war. General Persh ing has given it high praise by saying In an official report to the secretary oi war, concerning the operations along the Flscaut and the Scheldt in Belgium, "By a clever flanking movement troops of the 91st division captured Spltaals Bosschen, a difficult wood ex tending across the central part of the division sector, reached the Kscaut and penetrated into the town of Attdenarde. These divisions (91st and 37th) re- ceived high commendation from their corps commanders for their dash and energy.' "The 91st first figures in the front line reports under date of September 12 when the American army advanced for the reduction of the St. Mihlel sa lient. In that engagement, however. It formed a part of the reserve, assigned to the support of the first army. "Next the 9tst was reported in the line at the beginning of the Meuse- Argonne offensive on September 26. This was the great offensive of Amer ican arms aimed at Sedan and Mezieres, in a difficult country filled with de fensive machine gun nests, where the German reserves were thrown in with out stint. In describing this attack. General Pershing says: " 'We drove through the barbed wire entanglements and the sea of shell cra ters across no man's land, mastering all the first line defenses. Continuing on the 27th and 28th, against machine guns and artillery of an increasing number of enemy reserve divisions, we penetrated to a depth three to seven miles. '"ln the chill rain of dark nights our engineers had to build new roads across spongy, shell torn areas, repair broken roads beyond no man's land and bulla bridges. Our gunners with no thought of Bleep, put their shoulders to wheels and drag ropes to bring their guns through the mire In support of the in | fantry, now under the increasing Are of the enemy's artillery. " 'Our attack had taken the enemy hv surprise, but. quickly recovering himself, he began to Are counter at tacks *in strong force, supported by heavy bombardments, with large quan tities of gas. From September 28 until October 4 we maintained the offensive against patches of wood defended by snipers and continuous lines of machine guns, and pushed forward our guns and transport, seizing strategical points In preparation for further attacks." "During thse operation the 91st formed a part of the Fifth corps, and In the naratlve of the second phase of the Meuse-Argonne drive, this corps Is to provide entertainment. There were special programs in all welfare build ings, Including moving pictures, music and other features. There was a party in the Butte building and there were various other social gatherings and en tertainments given under the auspices of different clubs and organizations. A special event was the concert given by the Nurses' Chorus of 70 voices at the "Y" auditorium. A feature of this entertainment were the vocal solos of Rachel Van Valen. daughter of the head R the Camp Lewis Red Cross, who has won considerable recognition in camp.

The offi cial notification Is issued at the order of Major General Leltch, camp com mander. Benjamin .H. DeHart, a soldier from Indiana who has been stationed at Camp Lewis for some time, was married Christmas night to Miss Ger trude Cone, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. J.

Skits by soldiers of the camp, Including hu morous readings talks and debates, were other entertainment features. An impromptu debate on the ques tion as to whether or not women occu pying Jobs formerly held by soldiers should give up their jobs when the sol diers return furnished a good deal of fun at "Y" 6. The audience Judged the contest and seemed to be divided, so the chairman called It a draw. Re freshments were served at some of the social centers. Literal thousands of men took part in the more hilarious greetings of the New Year |n nearby cities.

HOLLAND President, the State College 0 Washington There is grounding pessimism evi denced in our fear thai the return to civil life of millions of soldiers and munitions workers may he followed by extensive unemployment and so cial unrest. Such pessimism is rooted in our failure to perceive what the imme diate future holds for all intelligent, law-abiding people, and amounts to thinking in terms of yesterday in stead of tomorrow. Considering this great tomorrow of ours, we should see that whatever it lacks, there is no lack of things to be done. Itight at hand is the task of pro visioning. comforting, and rehabili tating areas of the Old World conti nental in scope that have been swept by the fury of war. Compared to this undertaking, the relief of famine in India or China would be the work of a day. The task of increasing food production will require the em ployment of hundreds of thousands of additional men. Then there are other things for us to do at home. The United States, according to estimates, possesses more than a billion acres of land that can be used for agricultural pro duction. Less than 400 million acres of this vast, tillable domain tow are used. To reach with the plow our unused 600 millions, mighty feats in engineering, drainage, irrigation and clearing must be accomplished. Waiv ing for the present all discussions as to the best method of procedure, all Of us admit that fruitful opportuni ties for employment are offered by our unreclaimed land domain, and that the resources, industry, and skill of the American people are equal to the task of reclamation. Before 1914 there came to the United States each year between 1,000.000 and 1,200,000 immigrants. During the past four years the flow has ceased.

PHONE 340 have been depleted of help, and every industry has had to run shorthanded. No one should he disturbed about America being able to absorb in the peace-time industries all the soldiers in France and the men in our can tonments. In America we perceive more clear ly than before the war. the world and its opportunities overseas. There is Siberia, for example, reaching from Europe to the Pacific anil practically doubling the length and breadth of this country; holding locked within its vast boundary lines all in soil, mineral, water .power and forest that lies out of doors; and scarcely on the threshold of industrial development. Russia is in a mighty struggle, which, beginning in her overthrow of autocracy of the Romanoffs, now Is a contest with bolshevism which is nothing less than the autocracy of ignorance, the mob and the gutter succeeding that of Romanoffs, Ho henzollerns and Hapsburgs. Great though the obstacles, Rus sia is emerging from the polar ice of ignorance that has held her bound for centuries. If in the United States we overflow our 600 millions in un developed land and the new indus tries that will be built therepuon, we still shall have left a big world out side of this country. Russia, in par ticular, will want our help. Even before the war, the State College re ceived calls for scientifically trained young men in Siberia. Russian and Siberian students have attended In struction at this institution and every one of them said that in her reconstruction Russia would look to America for help more than to any other nation in the world. So, if we in America suffer from unemployment, it will be for no lack of opportunity here or overseas. There has never been a time in all human history when the world was so rich in opportunity as today. If we. in our generation, but touch "the hem of the garment" in the great work to be done, there shall be serv ice and its rewards for everyone.
