JOE WEHOLT


♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦♦
L R. Wiener of Harpster, received
the following letter from his friend,
Joe Weholt, in which he takes pains
to express his opinion of the work of
the Y. M. C. A., and in view of recent
arguments in this vicinity, ought to af
ford convincing proof that they are all
that is claimed for it. Joe is a mem
ber of Co. F, 12th Infantry :
"Camp Fremont, Cal., Sept. 15.—
Dear Friend:—Knowing that you are
Interested in army life will drop you a
few lines this afternoon and give you
ail idea of how and what we are doing,
so you can compare it with the time
you were In the service.
_"1 have been assigned to the infan
try now and tmllove me, we haven't
lost much time since we landed here.
1 haven't drilled quite five weeks yet
and am going out on the rifle range to
morrow, so you see they make soldiers
quite fust here. I also have my gas
mask, bayonet, full field pack, and all
the other articles necessary to equip n
soldier.
"They are drilling us quite hard now
because they want to .have us ready
for overseas duty by November 1st, so
we are getting all we can stand every
day. The hardest of all Is the bayonet
work and the extended skirmish order.
They both have to be done on the
jump. Next comes standing at atten
tion, which Is a very difficult matter,
especially when on parade.
"We hail a review before our new
major general last week,
was the best parade he ever saw con
sidering our short time of training;
this was one bnttnllon of the eighth
division. There is a complete division
here in Camp Fremont, which they are
training to send to Siberia, but if those
U. S. boys in France don't wait there
won't l»e any use of us going.
"We are getting good eats here; for
dinner we had sweet potatoes, roast
l>ork. gravy with bread and fruit ; but
there isn't any white bread on week
du^'s.
"There are three big Y.
building here in camp and several
tents: they sure are n home to the sol
dier.

"This army life Is tine if a man likes
it. but I say 'Punin the Kaiser.'
"I sure have a dandy captain, (Cap
tain Whitaker), he fought in the Phil
liplnes the same time you did : but my
sergeant Is a bear cat."

Somewhere tn France,
August 24th, 1918.
My Dear Friends :—It la more than
eight months since that pleasant even
ing when I visited you in your cosy lit
tle home in Grangeville. and In that
time I have thought of you all very of
ten and hoped to have written you long
ago as I promised. But 1 have lieen so
busy all these months that there have
been but few opportunities for writing
letters.
After I reached Philadelphia In De
cember, I had my usual winter lectures
there to give and just as I was busy
with them, I was called by the war de
partment and sent over here, where I
have been hard at work ever since.
I am the dletitican of a very large
hospital for wounded soldiers. The
dletitican looks after all of the soldiers
food, oversees the buying, cooking and
serving, arranges sjiecial diets, nourish
ments, and so on. When I tell you
that at times we have eighteen hun
dred to two thousand wounded and
sick men here, you will know I urn
kept pretty busy. But I am very glad
to be able to do it, and glad the gov
ernment selected me for the i>ost. My
son-in-law, Betty's husband, is now
fighting In France, so are two of my
nephews; so our family Is pretty well
represented, don't you think?
As I recall your boys, they are not
yet old enough to be called, are they?
I hope not, for I hate to think of any
more of our young men coming over to
this frightful war.
But I feel that It will stsin lie over

the run and if we can only keep them
going fast till they reach Berlin, it will
be flue. Then all our boys can go home
and stay home, for that will end the
war for always. Don't you think so.
I am working harder than I ever did
even on the ranch, but am glad to tie

"mother" and say they enjoy the food
we make for them at this hospital very

much.
and that always pleases me. It is fine
to be able to make some i»oor wounded
boy feel at home.
I am writing this out of doors under
a big tree. Just below I can see trains
passing on their way to the front with
soldiers, ammunition, hay guns, etc.
Other trains coming from the front
carry wounded soldiers to the hos
pitals.
Now I must go back to my work, for
there is always plenty of that waiting
for me. I wish you would write me a
line or two, letters mean so much to us
away over here.
