Work* Like a Machine. It Is there in every section of France, from Solssons and Toul to Marseilles and from the Sw'ss border to the Bay of Biscay. All France Is a great In dustrial place and there Is hardly a apot In the whole country - . Including the sections under heavy shell fire, where the S. O. S. Is not standing at attention when the dinner bell rings. Meantime, men and munitions, and all manner of supplies are moving up to the front continuously, and the fighters are coming back for a little rest. The T-.aehinery works smoothly —and efficiently. There are side lines of great Interest. One of these Is the traveling bathroom. An outfit that re by get try of quires only three trucks is now sent up j to the lines to greet the boys as they come out of the trenches and give | them a fine scrubbing. Each outfit I will wash 500 hoys an hour. Meantime the S. O. S. Is filling orders 1 from the front. It may be a few thou- , sand Infantry, an artillery regiment i several such regiments, machine ; gun companies, and so on through the : list. They are delivered immediately. The wounded have to be brought j back to the hospitals. The trains and ambulances are ready and they move like clockwork—except that getting back from the first-aid stations at times Is not quite as slow as a clock. The wounded are sent to all corners of France and the big machine works on almost faultlessly. Whole armies of the mobile sections now are transported quickly from sec tor to sector. It Is up to the S. O. S. to see that all this equipment Is pro vided. Salvage Work Important. The S. O. S. besides doing an enor mous business in the manufacturing line, conducts a large salvage plant, or plants. Into which flows a steady stream of battlefield wreckage. In the clothing branch of the work alone they are saving the taxpayers back home $3,500,000 a month. More important than the money saving is the saving of tonnage. At one station mammoth American locomotives are assembled "while you wait." Six of these leviathans are put together every day and are doing their bit the next day. It was found advisable to operate a special train for American military men between two widely -epnrnted points ln France. A« soon as the neees sltv presented Itself the train was In stalled. It is called the "American Special." It Is manned by Pullman car porters—negro hoys who have had long training on the de luxe trains hack home. They are rated as first class wagon men here American railway conductors have been assigned to this train, or trains, one running each way every 24 hours. Of one thing the mothers hack home may be thoroughly assured, and that is that not one of their boys wan? single thing In the way < and medical and surgical attention N« army ever took the field he P vided.

General llagood Is one of the young er generals of the army. He Is small of stature, quL-k of action, and a hu man dynamo. His mind works like How did you do U?" I asked him. A flicker of a smile flitted across the face of the West Pointer. "Well, we had to do It—and we did it. That's all. It was a mere statement of fact. There was no philosophy to It. Just had to be done, and— whs done! "It would he lm|iosslble for me to tell you how this plan has been worked out," he added. "Moreover, I am not permitted to give out Interviews to newspaper men. But in this case I understand you have been authorized j ! by General Pershing's headquarters to get an Interview from me, so I will try to tell you something about It. Undeceiving Themselves. "In the first place. It Is the biggest ] military undertaking in the history 1 of the world. No military authority ever laid so bold a plan on this earth ; nothing that Alexander the Great. Julius Caesar or Napoleon ever planned eon»i>ares with It in scope or daring. The Germans laughed at us when we proj>osed it, and even those of us of the old army who sat around j ttie war college wondering what we | I 1 , i ; : j would do ln a great war. never dreamed the United States, the most unmilltary nation on earth, could put 4,000,000 men in France. To supply such a body of men from a base 4,000 miles away, to organize them, to fight 'em, and to fight 'em as well as the best soldiers in Europe today—Is the greatest military accomplishment of all times. "So far as my end of It Is concerned it Is all a matter of team work. The work is that of the bureau chiefs. You might compare me to the quarter back of the team. I give the signals and pass the hall, hut they really do the work, and they have done It ex- 1 ceedingly well. We are way ahead on our program. We supply twice as many men In France ns the most optimistic of us had expected. And at the present rate it will not he long before we will he supplying In France an army four times as large as that we had originally contemplated. "As to the character of the work, we have had to build and repair rail roads. We hnve built permanent d.K'k« and wharves at the ports, and some of these ja.rts are more pros[»erouB 1 now than they ever have been ln their history. We have constructed aviation fields, repair shops, salvage plants, supply depots, hospitals, cold storage plants, water supply, etc. Rushing a New City.
