Dear mother:
I've found the impossible. I can't
feature it yet—a real "bon feu" a
grate fire. The damp weather is Bet
ting in, and believe me, a fireside is
the place to cling to once in a while.
I came down here (down town)
to write letters this afternoon, after
spending all morning standing in
spection for the general of this re
gion, and a couple of good hours
after dinner stud
big exam schedu
morning. I met friends on the way,
at a cafe, and came here (Y. M. C.
A.) at 5.30 to find the treat—two
good grkte fires, so I wasted some
time and now have only half an hour
before going back for retreat and
S ng for our first
d for tomorrow
supper.
The Y. JM. C. A. gave us anoher
big treat last evening—a real home
high class vaudeville. The actors
and actresses were America's best,
Miss Mayo, authoress of "Twin Beds"
"Baby Mine" and other hits; Gray
and Morrisey, wonderful comedians.
Elizabetn Brice and Miss Merdith, a
movie star. The played "Somewhere
in America." I thought I was there
for an hour. These actors and act
resses are doing a remarkable good
work.
They are still shooting Information
our way so fast we can .scarcely grab
it, and now the exams commence al
ready. The barracks is a verttab'e
hive of buzzing problems, and un
finished arguments.
No further word from Don. I am
wondering where he is.
I have not heard from my outfit
Bince leaving it three and a half
weeks ago, and don't know where
they are either.
War news always good and fairer,
but our struggle with artillery pro
blems goes on n the same break neck
manner. Next week I'll know more
about my probable future in the
army than heretofore. I think I'm
going to make it all well and good.
We had our first day firing our
guns on the range Friday; some
handled the guns and some directed
the fire; I had a turn at being No. L
cannoneer, pulling the lanyard, and
ejecting the cartridge; it was fun,
and my first time close up to a gun
in action.
Things come on us thick and fast,
our instructor is already talking of
taking out a whole battery of four
guns, locating them, and firing on
some targets. There's more to artil
lery than to the study of law I do
believe.
I have had no letters all week, ex
cept one from Mr. Hallid&y ad
dressed to me at Mills.
I have written to my outfit for
my Red Cross outfit and if it don't
come in a week or-so I'll buy me a
sweater here, and some woolen socks.
I hope you are getting the "Stars
and Stripes", which I send every
week. Its fine stuff.
Sincerely with lpve,
FREMONT KUTNEWSKY.

E. F.
Dear mother and all:
Am well and hope this finds you
the same. I guess you will be sur
prised to kncfwi that they are making
a military police out of me. I left
the hospital and went to a classifi
cation camp, expecting to go back to
my old company, but one day Ihe
captain lined us all up and picked
ninety of us to go to a military po
lice school. I happened to be one
of them so I am at school now.
We sure have a nice place here.
Good beds, and barracks, and lots
to eat. We have water and electric
lights .in our barracks. Some class.
School starts Monday. It makes me
homesick to go to school again. I
don't know how, long we will be here,
but I sure like It.
Well mother dear, write to me
often and let me know how every
thing is getting along at home, llow
are the children, kiss them all for
me and tell them to write.
Well, I will write again soon and
let you know all about it. Answer
soon, with world of Jove and kisses,
Your lo/i.ng son,
M^IN FRANC G.
Infirmary No. 13, 166 Depot Bri

1918.
My Dear Father:
What do you know about it—I
got a letter from dear little Norma
today that was so expressive that it
really touched me: She is a prince
of a girl. Then I received a fine
letter of congratulations from Ruby
also. A day or so ago 1 received
one from Muggins too. Seems as
hoiws you have all kept me well in
mind, so I'll write to thank you for
the kind expressions. Yes, 32 yearB
is a long time to plug along in sin
gle blessedness, but I'm about as
well blewed single as double. Not
much chance for me to couple up
with any swell girls while I'm wear
ing the (Hive Drab either.
Well, It would certainly be bully
if Harold and Cheuncey and I and
Ray could be home for Christmas,
but you must not lay any hopes and
plans for such a glorious feeling.
Don't let me be understood as a
crape hanger or calamity howler or
plain pessimist but the face of things
make me believe that none of us
will be coming home for at least 6
months or more if peace is signed
today, and it is not signed yet, tho
I look for the official notice any
time. Possibly Ray will be released
or father returned from overseas
within a few months after peace is
signed as he has now served about
a year actLvely there, but others will
continue to go across and take their
places in the vast organization that
will be necessary to police the whole
of Central Europe and Asia for the
next five or ten years. I look for
a lot to cross and for many more to
remain in the service a year or two
here in the Home Guard and to look
after these camps, to guard the vast
property held in this territory by
Uncle Sam. To man the hospitals
that are so necessary for the recon
struction of the men who are re
turning from the battle area.
It is not mentioned in the news
dispatches how many men we have
in the hospitals of Europe and Eng
land iwiho will eventually be brought
home for treatment.
We read today's casualty lists and
when we see no one known inti
mately to us we dismiss the number
from our mind and then tomorrow
we see another several-hundred listed
among the casualties. Do we really
realize that these daily lists ^re pil
ing up and totaling into thousands
and thousands with wounds and dis
ease fractures and amputations that
will come home after awhile to show
us we never have felt before what
this War of Wars has meant? Think
of the sacrifices that have been made
and that must be made yet, and the
long years of suffering men must
undergo. All this is not really un
derstood by the people, it is only
faintly impressed upon those at home
that they have sacrificed when they
have drawn from their savings to
put the money in a good security
of Bonds, and given the odd dollars
for charity, and then some have had
their touching good-byes with their
own, * but when they see in every
town the cripples, the convalescents,
the nervous wTecks and then only
will they come to feel that someone
has made the real sacrifices. We
all priay that qurs will not be the
one to pay as the debt is really paid
to country, we pray that he will re
turn to us whole and sound, but in
the granting of this prayer let us not
be afraid to offer that which we can
and so those of us who also are in
the service must continue our duties
with all the spirit and willingness
possible. Let us do our duty nor
ask to go home till they feel we are
no longer needed.
How I wish things were so I could
be with you to relieve you from the
drudgery, the ha'd work of the farm,
but I can't, and I only bopd you will
conserve your strenght till we return
and not try to do too much, as it
will only result in your breakdown,
and we cannot either enjoy the fu
ture then. Life is not worth it for
to try to do all the little things.
Just so you keep things from going
all to pieces is all we want and when
we come home we can make up for
it. We have all learned twtoat it is
to drill and to work and to econo
mize.
With this little sermon ended I
will say that it has rained all day
and it is still ralnnig and it is also
after 10 p. m., so I will close with
an expression of love to you and
mother.
JOE MADSEN.

STEPS 10 RELIEVE
PRESIDENT WILSON PROMI8E8
TO AID IN THE MATTER OF
8ECURING FOOD SUPPLY.
Desires Assurance That Public Order
Will Be Maintained and That an
Equitable Division of Food
Can Be Guaranteed.
Washington.—President Wilson has
sent a reassuring message to the peo
ple of Germany in reply to the appeal
from Chancellor Ebert. He promises
to aid Germany in the matter of food
supplies and in relieving distressing
want.
The reply^vas sent Wednesday by
Secretary Lansing through Minister
Sulzer, of Switzerland, who delivered
Ebert's request for'intervention by the
president to mitigate the "fearful con
ditions" threatened through enforce
ment of the armistice terms.
It says steps are to be taken at once
to organize relief work in the same
systematic manner in which it warn
carried out in Belgium, but that the
president desires to be assured that
the public order will be maintained in
Germany and that an equitable dis
tribution of food can be clearly guar
anteed.
CHANGING BACK TO PEACE BA8I8
President May Appoint a Reconstruc
tion Commission.
Washington.—President Wilson has
under consideration the appointment
of a reconstruction commission to de
velop a comprehensive program for the
nation's conversion from a war to a
peace basis. The commission would
be advisory, rather than executive, in
functions and the plans developed and
co-ordinated by it would be carried out
by existing government departments
and agencies.
As now considered, the commission
would be representative of commer
cial, industrial, labor, agricultural and
social interests; its membership would
be small and it would deal with all
phases of the great problem of easing
the country from war to peace.
Wilson May Attend Peace Seeeion.
Washington.—President Wilson, it is
said, has given no indication as to
how he regards the suggestion from
high sources in. Europe that he will
attend the great conference which is
to re-establish the peace of a war
torn world. Most of the president's
advisers, however, are understood to
consider thnt acceptance of the invita
tions would involve needless risk and
would serve no purpose that could not
fee accomplished through the dele
gates who will be appointed to repre
sent the American government and
who will be in constant communica
tion with Washington.
Government to Reinsure Soldiers.
Washington.—Preparations by the
government for reinsuring the lives of
soldiers and sailors on their return
have been hastened by the signing of
the armistice. Although regulations
have not yet been fully drafted, it Is
certain thnt each of the 4,250,000 men
In the military or naval service now
holding voluntary government Insur
ance will be permitted within five
years after peace Is declared to con
vert it into ordinary life, twenty pay
life, endowment maturing at the age
of 62 or other prescribed forms of In
surance. 1
Federal Control of 8teel Urged.
Washington.'—Continuation of gov
ernment supervision of the steel indus
try during the period of readjustment
to peace conditions was recommended
Wednesday by the steel committee of
the American Iron and Steel institute
at its first meeting with the war in
dustries board since the signing of
the armistice.
Revolutionary Strike In Switzerland.
Washington. — Switzerland's gen
eral strike, which commenced this
week, has objects which are revolu
tionary and political rather than eco
nomic, and has had direct incitement
from the Bolshevik organization In
Russia, according to Hans Sulzer,
Swiss minister to the United States.
King George 8ends Message.
London.—King fteorge on the sign
ing of the armistice sent a message of
congratulation to President Wilson and
thanks to the people of the United
States for their aid In the war. Presi
dent Wilson cabled a reply of warm
appreciation.
President's Daughter Visits France.
Nancy.
daughter of President Wilson, arrived
