Kimble, who is at St. Nazaire, A. P. O. 701, B. Q. M, Amer. E. F. France. He writes: "This is worthy of publica tion and will be read with interest by those who have been over here." Yes, we'll say it will, and by others as well. (Note to ex-soldiers: In the day of your happiness, remember the poor S. 0. L. in the land of Frogs. It still costs him three francs for a bar of soap and ten for a square meal. He is'still subject to those last two weeks of every month, broke, thirsty, without cigars and homesick. Feel for him, in the days of your good fortune.) (Note to civilians: A franc is about 18 cents, and the Americans will al ways give $1.00 for five of them. In army jargon, the Frenchman and everything French is "Frog" for short. The English used to call Frenchmen "frog-eaters"; per haps that is the origin. "Combien" is the first thing you say in French; it means "how much?". ^Immediately after you have said it you pull out your pockefbook and hand over some coin for the thing you are asking for. If you ever go to France, go well heeled, for you will see how beautifully our soldiers have trained the French to believe that all Ameri-i cans are millionaires. They will probably still be using the war to answer every kick, in their pretty phrase "C'est la guerre," "it is the war.")—F. C. K. The Battle of Combien There was many a scrap where the Yanks were engaged From Seichprey thru to Sedan.

But the Frogs had it on us where ever we met, And they trimmed us again and again Till at last we were forced to sur render outright, In the Battle of Combien. There was many a man in the over seas force, Who could never get up to the front, But was made to do time in the S. O. S. In preforming a stevedore stunt, But in one of the scraps everyone was engaged And in common we all of us ken Of the furious light that was fought with the Frogs In the Battle of Combien.

Arthur Kitchen of the 160tli infantry, 40th division, landed in the U. S. from Brest, France several weeks ago, and wired. From Camp Funston he wired he would reach here Wednesday and Mrs. Kitchen would have been looking for him, had not a letter from camp followed the telegram saying he couldn't make it. So when a big husky doughboy corporal swung wide the door of the third grade class room at the Central school Wednesday morning and started right in to kidnap teacher, the kiddies were treated to a few moments of grand excitement, which drove away dull care for the rest of the day. Teacher was a bit flustered too, naturally. Mr. and Mrs. Kitchen took in the flying circus at Pocatello Friday and then went to Ft. Hall to visit Mr. Bennett, reservation farmer there. Excitement at School Cpl. Kitchen was shunted off on M. P. duty at Brest, and therefore missed seeing the front while yet there was a chance. Long In Hospital C. C.

The French folks caught up several of our American slang expressions and used them at every opportunity with huge enjoy ment of the light that came in the doughboy's eye when he heard the good old word, whatever K • was. And in apologetic spirit we confess that the men of the A. E. F. would oftentimes teach the unsuspecting Frenchmen most naughty phrases, In the bald American tongue, which they would take every chance to re peat with a flourish and laugh, play ing for applause, but not appreclat-, ing the thing they were saying at all. Of French words and phrases we have absorbed a good many, thru the army, and they have a good start at being real Americanisms. There is "beaucoup" (boh-coo) meaning in French, "a great deal" or "many." American soldiers use the word to, mean "a whole lot" "very much" and etc. They use it whenever they want to create an impression about the size, abundance or quality of an article or the kind of an act. They say, "Jack won beaucoup francs in the game last night," or "Bill sure showed beaucoup nerve" or "Beau-,age [(Coveralls Keep Kids Kleen Practical, Healthful, Economical Garmanta for Small Children. • Practical.

Next to "beaucoup'' overworked word in France is "fin ish.'' the most It is neither American nor French, for our word is "finished" and their word is "fini'' (pronounced feenee.) The combination is pro nounced by our men "finish" and i Frenchmen "feeneesh," and used | both sides as tho it were a coined i wor d to fit the new circumstances war times. The French would often ! sa y, of the war, that it was as good as over, thus: "La guerre feeneesh j and the same thing when it ; actually done with. Or, they would pu t it "Feeneesh la guerre " was Another French phrase-word "toute-de-suite" meaning, "immedi ately," "right away" "quickly.*' Americans say it like this, "toot sweet," and as a useful word, it takes the final palm. It means most every thing. as to raise it to a new tooter the sweeter" in their love of playful audacity. And so, before the armistice everybody was saying, "La guerre feenesh toot-sweet," and be tween our men and Frenchmen this w **~, **■ "nop sesame to chance ac quaintance anri lHenastrip mov. sight.

At every new turn when either could be worked in would bring a laugh of comprehen sion. The French keenly under stood our American intention to push their good old words to the most amusing and exaggerated lengths, and quickly followed suit themselves, to humor us. An Ameri can might go into a little shop to get tobacco, and upon the proprietress saying "Feeneesh tabac," he would as like as not reply "Feeneesh la gerre" and both would join in great laugh as he went out of the door. Of course, the war was the cause of a lack of tobacco. But the American was only thinking of other uses of the word "feeneeph," and probably of the fact that when the war should be done he would once more be where tobacco is always plentiful. Toute-de-suite, (toot-sweet,) beau coup, (boh-coo) and "feeneesh" are great A. E. F. handles to patched U P conversations.

There was one cafe in a rather Americanized French town where a cer tain waitress came to be known far and wide among Americans as ''Irish. She was slim, active, had rad hair and lots of humor.
