How Our Troop« "Got Across. 1 *
During our 19 months of war more
than 2.000,000 American soldiers were
carried to France. Half a million of
them went over In the first 13 months
and a million and a half in the last
six months. The highest troop-carry
ing records are those of July, 1018,
when 306,000 soldiers were carried to
Europe, and June, 1810, when 364,000
were brought home to America. Most
of the troops who sailed for France
left from New York. Half of them
landed in England and the other half
landed in France.

The other day
A fellow came into our office
» And he said
I wish that I had done
Like Jim Brown did
He bought a lot, Jim did, and
He built himself a little home
The first year
And he planned it so he could
Build more onto his home
The next year
And he did. and
Now he's got a fine big home
Worth a lot of money
And he owns it
And it's his.
And I
Came to town about
The same time
Jim did
And I rented a house
Like a lot of other fellows
And the landlord sold the house
And I had to move
And I did
And I rented another house
And the landlord sold that
And I had to move again
And all I got now is
Some rent receipts
And l*>e got to move again
—Ain't that hell?
