"Government Will Trace Tltem to
Tlioir Graves," Selective Serv
ice Official Says.
CHICAGO. The ending of the
war did not put an end to the trou
bles of slackers and draft evaders.
They are to be hunted out. They will
be punished by the government if it
takes the next hundred years to dig
them out.
V. J. O'Kelleher, inspector of United
States selective conscription service,
made this announcement to 200 rep
resentatives of the Illinois draft
"Deserters and delinquents shall be
prosecuted," declared O'Kelleher.
"The first by court-martial and the
second lot by civil courts. The gov
ernment will trace them to their
graves if need be."
Lieutenant Joseph Bdmunds Curry
of the Sixtieth Field Artillery was
married New Year's day at Louis
ville, Ky., to Miss Irene Madeline
Vezolles, according to word received
by local friends this week. Lieuten

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
"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
"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

Carry Your Discharge Paper.
A general camp order issued 011 Mon

men to the necessity of carrying at all
times their discharge papers. There
will be many occasions within the

formed the ceremony.
It was her farewell appearance here.
At the conclusion of the concert the
chorus split up In groups and visited
the various Y. M. C. A. buildings, where
short programs were given.
Concerts were also given at various
centers during the evening by J. H.
Howe. Mrs Jack and daughter. 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.

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

No one should he disturbed about

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.
