Captain O'Beirne reports this morn:
ing, that he has only seven children
: in the Salvation Army Day Nursery
t in' Meredith street with rooms for
! more. This emergency nursery was
' started by Captain O'Beirne last week
. in three bright rooms which have been
i donated by Sam ' R. Nuzum . These
- " rooms have been cleaned and furnish
'' ed and are at present equipped with
^ necessities, though a number of fur.
nishlngs are still to be put in. Captain
O'Beirne has worked both day
> and night since the need for a chllj
drcn's nursery became Imperative. He
asliied' through this paper for bedding
; and other needs and has been sup'
plied with these as far as is needed
- at present with the exception of
- sheets.. A few more sheets could be
'used. Captain O'Beirne would like
some money donated to aid in buying
: food for the children. Anyone desir:
tag to help in the caring for these
children by donating money, which
can always be used in the right place
: in this work, may call 933. Already
nearly $100 has been received.
> .This morning the children at the
Day". Nursery played very happily
i, about the bis playroom which has
' been provided with plenty of toys. '
Mrs. Brass is taking charge of the I
.. children as matron and all of them
.-are in healthy condition with the exception
of Roy Frazier, a small lad
-cabout three or fonr who lies In bed
?too: 'weak' to enter into the fun which
he Sears going on in the room next to
him This child came from Wyatt
where rejjore tsates his own father .
\ best' Mm - and very nearly starved i
, him. The child's mother has desert- '
. ed bhir. The little one is very thin '
and emaciated and bruises show veTy 1
-plainly on his body. Dr. Criss says 1
that foot} and care are all that the '
child needs, both of which will be supplied
plentifully.
Captain O'Beirae wonld like the ,
donation of automobiles to take his ,
' charges out for an 'airing each day
when other cars which he has been '
promised the loan of. are unable to re- I
port. Lieutenant Fornolf stands ready
at any time to act as chauffeur. Glenn
. F. Bans donated his car yesterday
- afternoon and the children all went
for a ride, even the small sick boy,
well' bundled in warm wraps. The j
children need outings each day as ow- J
ing to the location of the nursery :
there is no yard in which they may
be tuned loose.
.Captain 0*Beime asks that any- 1
one-knowing'of children in need 01 <
attention through the death of par- '
. ents or illness of the mother, please <
call 933 so that these children may be <
MtiaA fm onH taken to the nursery.
( - The mala object of the nursery is to j'
core tor chidren all over the city 1
whose parents have been afflicted with 1
f thes "flu." . Fathers may leave their
. chfldren during the day or all night
" if necessary. Food can be used and
anyone having delicacies such as <

'please call 933 before delivering this i
food so that Captain O'Beirne may 1
sa ywhether be has enough on hand <

THE' qualities that make a good
wrestler are those that make
a good soldier. Wrestling
keeps year mind and year body
active; makes you think last and !
wisely. Like boring, wrestling j
proves and develops a boy's game- j
aess and gameness Is what Is beat- j
lag the Htm. Expertness in boxing |
makes the soldier a better bayonet !
lighter; skin at wrestling will en- |
able the man in khaki to ward off 1
death when be comes to grips with "
the Boche.
Wrestling made a big hit with |
the boys at Camp Dodge. Des ?
Moines. Iowa, where I was stationed $
for several months. With the aid f
ot the Y. M. C. A., the K. of C., and i
the Jewish Welfare Board we were ?
able to put on a number of good |
shows. These - organizations rea- |
lizing the benefit the boys would |
get from the sport, urged me to |
arrange shows every other night I
If I could, .and we bad some mighty _
Interesting boots. These agencies,
together with the T. W. C. A., the <
War Camp Commcnlty Service, the {
American Library Association and <
the Salvation Army, which have ,
gotten together in the United War |
Work Campaign to raise J170.500.- _
000. deserve the support of every (
American. I
To be a good wrestler you most _
use your head as well as your c
strength. There are many tricks in i
the game and I find that the soldier
boy learns them quicker than the r
civilian. That is because his mill- t
tary exercises and drills have pat 3
him in good physical condition and c
such, a man thinks quickly. t
The way the ordinary soldier hoy e
baccme interested in wrestling is by c
watching the others. Alter several )
weeks he tackles the game and it t
ia surprising how quickly he learns. <
His gameness has been tested from e
the very first. No coward sticks 1
to wrestling. I pity the poor Hon t
who starts to mix it op with us at
