YANKS ARE OUT
TO WIN QUICKLY
[Continued from First Page.]
prehensive discussion of all these
Messages From Front
Dr. Bagnell is high in his praise
of the American boys, and of the
work of the Red Cross and Y. M. C.
A. Of the part Harrisbu'rgers and
Pennsylvanians are playing ho has
learned much, too.
"I have a pile of communications
t from boys fiom Harrisburg and
vicinity to relatives and friends here
and as soon as possible I will give
their names to the public and com
municate with tlie persons whoso ad
dresses they have furnished -lie.
There are many hundreds of them,
the majority communications tell
ing the folks that they are well and
happy. They, too, have the spirit of
every American soldier, to win tho
war now. All are anxious to get into
service at the war front, officers and
men making every effort to get there.
In the hospitals, in the camps at the
great military headquarters and vari
ous bases the same feeling exists.
Then there is the homesickness, too.
Frequently I spoke to the men and
they said, 'France Is all right, >yut
good old U S. A. for mine. I want
to get this fight over.'
Talk of Home
"You couldn't talk about America
tc those boys but that they appre
ciated It. I conducted a service one
day at which many songs were sung,
the boys selecting them. Finally
one of the crowd) called out a num
ber. It iv.ts 'Home, Sweet Home.'
None of us could sing it."
Dr. Bagnell met many Harrisburg
ers while in France and in England,
but could not get to see them all.
Before he left he took the names and
military designation of all local bovs
as furnished by parents and friends
here. As soon as he landed in
Franco ho wrote to all these boys,
getting answers from practically
every one of them. Some he saw
later and got personal messages from
In explaining his difficulty in
reaching the local boys. Dr. Bagnell
said: "As soon as 1 left this country
1 was just as much in military serv
ice as any officer or private. 1 had
to observe every censorship rule, and
for any infringement on the military
regulations I was liable Tor court
martial. You can readily see that I
did everything possible to retain all
privileges, in writing to the Harris
burg soldiers: I could not tell them
where I was unless in Paris, and
they could only give me their mili
tary unit and head their letters
'Somewhere in France,' the same as
When writing home.
"While irt one big meeting at
which 1 spoke one of the men came
forward and told me that there was
a captain in his regiment who was
from Harrisburg. I investigated and
met "Bill" Calder, having a nice
talk with him.
Praise For Miss Watts
"At one of the large American dis
tribution points 1 met another en
thusiastic war worker from Harris
burg. Miss Marian B. C. Watts. The
work she and another woman are
doing there is remarkable and the
boys almost worship the ground
those two walk upon. I had a long
talk with Miss Watts also.
"Later I learned while visiting a
large bakery at this same place that
Lieutenant Curzon Fager was there.
.1 met him. Among those who an
swered my letters announcing my
arrival were Captain Nicodemus,
Lieu tenant Wallower, Captain E. J.
Stackpole, Jr., and Ross Jennings."
Admiration For Yanks
Dr. Bagnell then gave a brief ac
count of his trip. During his three
month.. tour he .made fifty-live lec
tures and addresses, speaking to
thousands of soldiers, talking to
many hundreds of them personally.
He also studied the attitude of the
English and French toward the
American people and the American
"Everywhere there is the greatest
of admiration for our boys. Two men
the most talked of by these peoples
are General I'Jpch anil our own Pres
ident Woodrow Wilson. The work
of America, too, since it entered the
war, is another thing which the
British and French never cease talk
ing about. The great spirit of our
people iiacking the President and
the ideals for which we stood in en
tering the war have aroused a spirit
which 1 have never seen anywhere
Twice Eluded U-Bonts
Ooing over Dr. Bagnell sailed
with twenty-four other Y. M. C. A.
workers on a troop ship carrying
I.IO'O men. It was chased twice by
submarines, but escaped both times
because of wireless warnings. It
carried a military cargo valued at
"I did not go to the front lines on
any of the battle fronts while an at
tack was on," Dr. Bagnell continued,
in speaking of bis visits in the war
zone. "I spent some time, however,
in the front, line trenches in a quiet
sector und at a rest station ut a
permanent camp. It would have re
quired too much time to go to the
scene of battle and my purpose was
to see as many men and talk to
them In the short time that I hud.
Talks to Troops
"My reception everywhere by the
boys was most enthusiastic. At one
place I was scheduled to make an
address in the public square of a
French village. I did so standing
on .a writing table surrounded hy an
enormous crowd of troops. In an
other village tho Mayor, a well-edu
cated man who could speak both
English and French, greeted me and
was my most attentive listener.
"My most favorable lecture was
"A House Divided Against Itself," in
which I told of the antagonism of
democracy and. autocracy. At one
place where I gave it to some sailors
one of the leaders at the base at
which I was to speak the following
night was present. After I had fin
ished he asked me if I had not
shortened the talk slightly. I told
him I had and was requested not to
do so the next night. I talked to
those men for two hours and five
Our Allies Al'e Bravo
"The sacrifices of the French and
British are wonderful. Few homes
are in which the war has not
pa d its visit, but the people do not
carry their hearts on their sleeves.
There is little mourning in England.
In France where the people are
more emotional nroro of it is seen.
"One woman speaking to# mo on
the train said the sacrifices of the
thousands of families is not talked
about. 'I have one son in France,
another in a hospital and a third
who gave his life,' she said quietly."
Pennsylvania troops everywhere
are leaders, Dr. Bagnell declared,
but the great spirit of Americanism
that prevails is startling, he said.
"The stato nor the race has noth
ing to do with it. In every camp
that I visited the boys were united
in one great purpose and their
anxiety to get into the front line
attack was expressed many, many
times to me. They are hungry, too,
for talks on what the great .war
means and how it is to be settled.
They will not listen to mere twaddle,
they want to know the real things.
Y. M. C. A. Praised
"From my study of conditions
there seemed to me that more vital
than anything else to the morale of
♦he soldiers is the work of the Red
Cross and Y. M. C. A. Their hold
and interest in the men is astonish
ing, the 'Y' earing for the boys who
are well, safeguarding them in cities
such as London and Paris, and the
Red Cross ministering to the sick
and wounded. Every little detail for
their convenience and comfort is
looked after. The 'Y' at some posts
investigates when soldiers do not
receive mail from home and makes
every effort to straighten out the
numerous mail difficulties because of
the many changing positions of large
numbers of the troops.
Poor Mail Service
"The mail service is poor at best.
The French never had a system as
complete as ours. One instance of the
service I can furnish from my own
experience. A cablegram sent front
this city to me in France on July 13,
reached Paris on the 29th, was sent
through the mail and got to me on
August 5. A letter mailed to me
with the same information reached
me August 2.
"This adds to the anxiety of many
of the troops. One man in service
there since January, told me in July
that he had not received word from
his wife. Others have similar stories,
they are over for months before a
letter reaches them."
Like West Point
Dr. Bagnell while in England vis
ited camps there at which American
troops are stationed including a big
aviation base. In France he spent
nipe days at a big school center
where there are twenty-one military
schools for training soldiers for com
missions In all branches except the
heavy artillery and aviation.
"It was like West Point but great
ly multiplied in size," Dr. Bagnell
Dr. Bagnell was in Paris just be
fore the last big German drive which
ended in the Allied counterattack
which is now a big drive in itself
sending the Huns to the border.
"Everyone expected the greatest
German blow was to come but the
confidence of the people was su
preme. In fact that last attack did
not turn out to be as big as was an
ticipated. I frequently heard the
rumble of the big guns also while in
the war zones. German airplanes
came over the lines, also, at times
while 1 was in some of the villages."
Dr. Bagnell had no time for sight
seeing, he continued. "I was very
busy always and attempted to crowd
into three months time the work of
six months. I accomplished almost
everything I had planned, too. While
in England I only saw from a dis
tance such places as Westminster
Abbey, the Parliament Houses and
other points of interest.
"In France it was the same. I saw
the Eiffel tower from a distance and
also Napoleon's tomb. One enjoyable
part of the tour gave me an oppor
tunity to see the Alps and in one
French town a party was orgunized
to visit an art gallery for an hour.
The remainder of my stay in the two
countries I spent in active work,
either lecturing or visiting soldiers."
On the trip home Dr. Bagnell sail
ed on an auxiliary cruiser which was
not bothered by U-boats as it was
fully equipped with guns and the
navy's best marksmen. The last
week of his stay was spent visiting
naval bases he said. Owing to cen
sorship rules he could not give the
location of any of the army or navy
units ho visited.
While on the cruiser coming back
three icebergs wore sighted. One of
these was used for a target by the
gunners. It ivns eight miles away. A
report from the official observers
showed that one large gun made live
hits out of five shots, another four of
five and a third three of five.
Y. M. C. A. Work
Dr. Bagnell said that his success in
seeing so many liases and military
headquarters wus due to the ar
rangement of the tour by the Y. M.
C. A. The "Y" uniform also proved
of much value to him in his visits
and together with all necessary let
ters of introducton from the Bureau
of Public Information opened to him
every available place. His observa
tion of the Red Cross work was af
forded by numerous visits to base
hospitals one of which he inspected
from top to bottom. He also was on
Red Cross trains bringing men from
the front and spoke to largo num
bers of wounded soldiers.
"My reception by the boys and
their appreciation of my talks were
the most enthusiastic demonstrations
I ever saw. I have never had more
appreciative listeners than those sol
diers. To me It was amazing to note
their attitude. The admiration of the
people for them also was surprising.
In ports where they landed or rail
road centers where they were seen,
great crowds always turned out to
Among the first lectures which Pr.
Bagnell will give here using infor
mation which he gathered while
overseas, will be "The American Sol
dier in France." and "He That Put
teth His Hand to- the and
Looketh Not Back." .

London, Sept. 11.—A dispatch to
The Daily Express from Amsterdam
says the announcement of the engage
ment of tlie sister of the Grand
Duchess of Luxemburg to Crown
Prince Rupprecht of Bavaria has
caused the deepest ill-feeling
throughout the country, where the
Germans are cordially hated. Political
circles are also incensed at the reply
received to their representations from
a leading court official who described
the mutter as purely private and as
having nothing to do with politics.
Luxemburg people say that the
Grand Duchess ought to have forbid
