SATURDAY. NOVEMBER 16. 1918 A CALL TOJUBY Hill Dear Friends: As you know, the United War Work Campaign is calling for money. You know the noble work they are doing in serving our brave boys with many little comforts that no army, in the history of our globe, has ever known before. They have fought for the liberty of the world and Heaven knows they are justly en titled to all we can give them. Think of a Salvation Army Lass fanning the shells off her hot dough nuts as she wends her way through the trenches, loved and cheered by men who know her worth. Let us join hands in one glad, joy ous, heartfelt jubilee and see if we can send a messenger to the top siken banner in hand—our beloved and glorified Stars and Stripes to wave a signaled message of Ruby Hill’s love and patriotism to a weep ing, hopeful, happy world. Weeping for loved ones gone—hopeful that gll who have been spared may re turn to receive the caresses and bless ings of fond mothers, wives, sisters and sweethearts, and happy that a lasting peace is in the dawning. It has been a horrible and cruel war, but an Angel of Mercy has arisen from the blood stained battle fields, to bathe the brow of a wound ed world and great good will come, but oh—my God—what an awful, awful sacrifice. Thank you friends for what you do, and with a hope that we may all fol low our messenger to the top and there gaze on the glorious double bow in the eastern sky, God’s-prom ise of peace and prosperity, and with best wishes for your own welfare and that of the world I beg to remain, Sincerely and fraternally yours, Fiz.

ARMISTICE AMENDMENTS Germans Mast Give Up All Sub marines and Renounce Recent Rumania and Russian Treaties Washington, Nov. 12.—Amend ments of the armistice terms made by Marshal Foch after his first meet ing with the German plenipotentiar ies, as announced to-night by the state department, include the deliv ery to the United States and the Al lies of all of Germany’s submarines, instead of the 160 specified in the original draft of the armistice. Another amendment specifies that the “countries on the left bank of the Rhine evacuated by the Germans shall be administered by the local troops of occupation,” instead of by the local authorities, under the con trol of the armies of occupation. Instead of the immediate with drawal of German troopsfrom Russia, as originally provided, the amended terms specify that they shall be with drawn “as soon as the Allies, taking into consideration the internal situ ation of these territories (of Russia) shall decide that the time for this has come.” Fewer Airplanes and Machine Guns Reduction is made in the amount of certain military equipment to be delivered by the Germans to the as sociated governments, including 25, 000, instead of 30,000, machine guns and 1700 airplanes, instead of 2000. The number of railway cars to be delivered, however, in increased three-fold—from 50,000 to 150,000. It is against the delivery of this amount of rolling stock that Dr. Solf, the German foreign secretary, has protested to President Wilson, asserting that the distribution of food in Germany to the civilian popu lation will be greatly hampered. Another amendment provides that “the Allies and the United States should give consideration to the pro visioning of Germany during the armistice to the extent recognized as necessary.” To assure the execution of the ar mistice convention, “under the best conditions, the principle of a perma nent international armistice commis sion is admitted.” This commission will “act under the authority of the allied military and naval command ers in chief.” Give Up Interned Boats An amendment to the naval clause provides that all vessels designated to be interned shall be ready to leave German ports within seven days of the signing of the armistice. Direc tions for the voyage (to either neu tral ports or those of allied countries to be designated) will be given by wireless. Other amendments include: “Renunciation,” instead of “aban donment,” of the treaties of Bucha rest and Bosst-Litqvsk and of supple mentary treaties. Evacuation by all German forces operating in East Africa within a period to be fixed by the Allies, in stead of within one month. German troops are required to withdraw immediately from Austria Hungary, as well as from Rumania and Turkey. Evacuation by the enemy of the Rhine lands (left and right banks) shall be so ordered as to be complet ed within 31 days in all after the signing of the armistice, instead of 19 days.

It used to be thought that the Bel gian forts of armored steel and con crete, almost completely burled in the ground, would hold out against any artillery. But when the Germans brought up their great howitzers and hurled undreamed of quantities of high explosives on these forts, they broke and crumbled to pieces, writes A. Russel Bond In St. Nicholas. Then It was predicted that the day .of the fort was over. But the machine gun has developed a new type of warfare. Instead of great forts mounting huge guns, we now have little machine-gun forts, and they are far more trouble some than the big fellows. To the Ger mans belong the credit for this type of fort, which consists of a small con crete structure, hidden from view as far as possible, but commanding some Important part of the front. “Pill boxes” the British call them, because the first ones they ran across were round In shape and something like a pill box in appearance. These pill boxes are Just large enough to house a few men and a couple of machine guns. Concealment Is of the utmost importance; their safety depends upon It. Airplanes are particularly feared, because a machine gun emplacement Is recognized to be so important that a whole battery of artillery would be turned upon a sus pected pill box. It Is claimed that some pill boxes are built with turrets that rise out of the ground. Normally, they are completely burled and cov ered with turf so that no one would expect their existence. During the bombardment preceding a charge they would remain hidden and only a chance shot could put them out of business. When the charge took place the elevating mechanism would be op erated, and out of the ground would rise the miniature fort, ready to halt the advancing soldiers. TOOK TIME TO GREET BABY President Wilson Not Top Busy to Welcome Youthful Caller at tho White House. President Wilson laid aside grave war problems for a brief half hour the other day to shake hands and chat with the youngest visitor ever received by him at the White house, says the Washington Times. Usher Hoover announced to the President In his library that Mrs. Wil son would like him to go down to the Blue room to see a young man she was greatly Interested In. On reaching the parlor the president was presented to little Gordon Gray son, the ten-week-old son of Admiral and Mrs. Cary Grayson. “What a fine little fellow," snid the president as he reached for the tiny hand and shook it heartily. * Baby Grayson, although only ten weeks old, seemed to realize the honor of being the youngest visitor of Presi dent Wilson. He didn’t cry once. Just smiled and cooed, which Is considered very good form for a baby on a first visit. The baby had no official busi ness with the president, Just wanted to let him see how cute he looked In his new dress, and how much he had grown. Wood Withstands Quakes. The ability of wood construction to resist severe shocks and strains again was demonstrated in the earthquake that destroyed Hemet and San Jacinto, Cal., a few days ago. 'Telegraphic re ports from Hemet say that “the Vos burg hotel, a frame structure, with stood the shock, while its brick neigh bors fell flat.” Lumbermen point out that there is nothing peculiar in this. On account of the toughness of Its fiber and its resiliency, wood can stand many a twist and Jar before it breaks or loses its shape. A wooden building will “give” without injury to Itself and then resume its original shape. At the worst, in case of an unusually severe earthquake shock, it might be twisted out of shape a little but would not crumble or collapse. Brick buildings, on the other hand, have no elasticity. The brick and mortar of which they are constructed are brittle, when com pared with wood. The reports from California, the lum bermen declare, merely go to empha size the advisability of building of wood in districts subject to earthquake Bhock. To France In Father's Kit Bag. “Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag,” says the song, and Private Henri, a French-Canadlan soldier, did It literally. He packed his ten-year old son in his kit bag and took him to France, according to the Montreal Star. Henri’s wife and son followed htm to England when he left Canada. The mother died and when ordered to France Henri could not bear to leave son. So he packed him In his kit bag and took him along. At Boulogne the boy was discovered and promptly ship ped back to Folkstone, where he be came a pet of the police.
