WHY ARE WE KEPT HERE NOW?
WRITES CAMP LEWIS SOLDIER » u Seattle Star. Jan. 2:—I sei» a lot of bunk in tin* different dailies about the way soldiers are being treated in the army. From what is published, any one not better informed would thing we were being put to bi*d by the nurses ami fed on chuck cooked by a French chef. However, such is not tin* case. a a a I will try to explain. A while back, an evening pa|»er of Seattle printed the following article: "Soldiers at Camp Lewis are well taken care of at. night, as each bar rack is gone over every night several times by a physician, and if any of the boys are not covered jiroperly, they cover them, and if they are cold for the want of more cover, more blankets are ordered immediately." Let me say that is nice for the public lo read, but it did not hapjK'ii, so it's a lie, pure and simple. Another contain ed the following at Thanksgiving: "Large numlters of the soldiers were given four days off so they could s|K*nd Thanksgiving day with their folks." a few of each company ami they didn't get away in time to get home on Thanksgivlng day, if they lived much further away than Tacoma. Now they toll about our furloughs for Christmas, Yes, a few |-cts got furloughs, about 5 lier cent of the boys, and they got eight .lays, but they couldn't get away <»» Monday or Tuesday. No, they only got away about SoYlock «a, ..vening of the 24tb. ami they must be back by reveille on the 2nd of January, so they won't lie home for Christmas or New Year either, as they will be on the road going home or coming back to camp on both holidays. Little things liki* that make us love army lif<>. II«*re is an ..tlmr goo«l one: An order came out last night that hereafter »ill soldiers will Is* pi'obibiled from soliciting rides from persons in automobiles on the Pacific Highway or other roads, as it is a form of begging, and a disgrace to! tile uniform, and that tin* military po lice will jilaee under arrest any soldier «•auglit asking for a ride. I am of the opinion that it's more of a disgrace to tin* country tlmt the soldiers are not either i»ai«l mon*, or else allowed to 11,10 f,,l ' » .. 11 I suppose some patriotic profiteer math* a howl because some soldier laid Ihe audacity to stop him on the roail when lie was trying to break the speed limit or else the bus company put in a complaint that goisl money is being | saved by the soldiers which it should a shame that a sol«li.*r | shoulil disgrace tin* uniform by asking j for a rid«* when be gets tin* large and | Jiiii'.v sum of .$24 from Ills country. Another nice thing all the soldiers appreeiate is tlmt they are given a ! half h.di.l.ij on Wednesday. Di.l La say holiday?

Nice, what I always supjxisixl i a fellow could go where he pleased on a half holiday, but they evidently tiave a different dictionary in Camp Lewis than elsewhere, or else we soldiers don't know the meaning of the word holiday. As for the food, well the least said about it tile letter, us I might insult one of the cooks. But I would as soon „ 1 ». at in eat with some j>igs, for I have seen some j»igs get almost ns good. A lot of jieople come here and eat with us. As a rule the mess sergeant breaks his neck to get something for them to eat. as h<* doesn't like to offer our chuck to civilians, because he likes to pretend to the visitors tha#wo get better fare. Call it four flushing if you will, but let anyone go to caiuj» and sit in with the men, not with the non-coms, ami sei* what they get. I'll ask you, <lo you like hash for breakfast? And musty rice or corn mush, and very, very thin milk? Well, we don't get hash always . Sometimes, It's French (V* toast minus the French j.art. I hen, again, we get hot cakes. Oh, yes; they have flour ami water and ,\ linking powder in them, but as a rule the liens either forgot to lay that morn- t lng or else the cooks i.te 'em up; any way there are no eggs in the hot cakes When eggs were 50 .amts « dozen we got scrambled eggs ( .') once a week as a rule. Yes. I said eggs, but here Is the recijie (some proprietors of res- j> taurauts take notice.) For 200 men take 20 dozen <*ggs, break into a 5-gal- ! loti stew kettle, beat well, till up to ' three-fourths full of water, add 4 jiaek ages of corn starch, salt and pejijier, bent again, pour Into greased hake-jiaus and bake in the oven. I'll tell the world that makes a lot of eggs. Try it ; maybe you can cat them—I can't. Now for tin* biggest howl of all., You may not believe it, lint come hen* a and ask the boys yourself. They want to go home. You don't blame them, «lo you? The war is over. The war de part mint lias isstuxl orders to dis charge a lot of men, but while they are discharging men all over the country j from combat divisions they keeji tlie 1:!,h I"* 10 '"fact. Why? Is it bts-nuse | Tacoma gave the camp site and wants a bunch of men to stay here to graft off them? Are the Chambers of Commerce of Tacoinn and Seattle playing 1 h> 11 tics to keep us here? A lot of the boys | at this camp want to know. All you've j got to do is to ask them—don't take | my word for it. We art* getting rest-1 j lt*ss. We want to go home.
