With the American Army in Eng land.—Another consignment of Ameri can man power, that might be labeled "Ifudo in England," is ready for s'nip ir.i-nt to the western front. It is tlie personnel of the first American tank hntiuiion. Trained by veterans of the British tan! service and equipped with the most jaorKTii of the land war ships, the now force will give an excellent account of itself. The British coaches 0] lid: American crews have expressed then- :roval of the manner in which their pupils linve adapted themselves to tl: f'Ocration of the machines and, liiil1 Hey jive mistaken, the men who:-2 training in England is just lie inn completed will bo piven enviable roles. Their machines have the best poiofs cr imtli the British and French tanks arid the training of the men has been the licrlst of experience already pain"d by the fijrliters of France anil I'-nslaoil. To ",\ry man in the American outfit there bave been imparted the stories of mistakes made in the early history of i'jnk warfare. Enlisted men and of fk-ers have been told what to do and wha not to do all their admonitions have been based not on theory but on actn experiences, gained in the facfl of German lire, loosed always upon the -j-iitest intimation that the tanks are iumherinj? to the front. It is expected that because of the oscelience of the weapon with which it v..:! fislit and the training it has unfl'-"gone the American contingent will prove itself exceptionally eiiicient, Fi:"f'or cause for believing the American Tank Corps' will live up ta the estimate of the British Instructors is th character of its personnel, both men a-.d officers. They are carefully selected men, picked from the thou sand who volunteered when the call for tank men was made. Two basq requisites were insisted upon: First, every man must be physically fit, arid, second, temperamentally adaptable* The training every man has received has li.eant cither that he is delivered to th. commanders at the front as a wonderfully efficient unit or is morel Icssiv iiirown out of the service.

North l)a .a* -.econd class matter. Here is Senator MeCuinber's message regarding the War "Work Campaign: .Mr. William 11. Crawford, Washington, D. C. .My Dear Mr. Crawford: 1 am pleased to learn of the contemplated drive of the. United War Work Campaign in Novem ber to secure funds for the wel fare of our boys "Over There." .Few people realize to what ex tent the country has been devas tated on the western front, and that the battle is being fought over a desert, defaced by flame and pitted by shell holes. The thousands of little articles which eould be secured in a great city to supply the necessities of the sick and wounded can not be ob tained in such a place. They are, however, needed to allay suffering and to meet the necessities of each of our afflicted soldiers. .Most of them are articles neces sary outside of the limited army equipment. The army ambulance and field hospital are at best poor substitu tes for comiioriable home beds and ordinary hospital conveniences. The United AVar Work Cam paign directs its efforts to meet these elemands of' mercy and calls upon all sympathetic, souls to render financial assistance. Its commendable drive should meet with most enthusiastic response. Very sincerely yours, (Migned) I\ .'I. .MeCUMUEli. ?JER CROWN PRINCE WRITES TO HIS PAPA A touch of humor is adeleel to the war situation by the American doughboys from time to time. The following was originally publish ed in an American soldiers' paper in France. "On the liun, Somewhere in France, very where in France, All the Time. Dear Papa-—1 am writing on der run as dcr brave an dglorious soldiers tinder mv command have not seen der Rhine for so long dat dey have started back that way, and of course I am going mit dem. Oh, papa, dere lias been some offel dings hap pened hero in France. First. I started in my big offensive, 'which was to crush de fool Americans, but they know so little about mili tary ladies dat dey vill not be crushed ust like 1 vant 'em. I sent my men in der fight in big waves, and von dey got to de Americans elcy all said 'Boo' as loud as they could holler. Yell, according to vat: you have always told me, de Americans should have turned and run like blazes. But .vat you link? Dem foo] Americans don't know anything about war. and instead of running do odder va.v, day came right to ward us. Some of devn vas sing ing about 'Ve won't come back till it's over, over elere,' or some odder loolish song, anel some of dem were biffing like fools. De^y are so ignorant. But dey are of fel reckless mit eler guns, and veil dey come toward us it was den my men look a notion dey vanted to go back to der dear old Rhine. Ve don't like de. little dirty Marne Kiver anyhow. Anel, oh papa, dem Americans use sueli offel language. Dey know nothing of kulture and say such offel dings right before us. And dey talk blasphemy too. Vat you tink dey said right in front of my face? One big husky from a place de call call Missouri, lie saiel—oh papa, I hate to tell you vat an offel ting he saiel—but I can't deny it: he said: "To hell mit dcr kaiser!" Did you ever hear of Anything so offel? I didn't tink '. TW HQPB JNOtf^W N.DRA. mm This paper has enlisted with the government in the cause of Arr,erica for the period of the war IvIcCUMBER APPROVES WORK anybody vould say such an offel ting. It made me so mad, I voultlin't stand and hear such an oll'el ting, so I turned around and ran mit der odder boys. Vas I right? Vat And oh, papa, you know dem breast-plates vot you sent us—von't you send some to put on our backs? You know ve are going de oder vay now, and breast plated are no good, for de cowardly Americans are shooting lis right, in der back. Some of our boys took off der breastplates and put 'em behind but de fool Ameri cans are playing de 'Star Spangl eel Banner' mit machien guns on eleiu plates. Can't you help us? You remember in your speech you saiel nothing could stand before the brave German soldiers? Oh papa. I don't believe dese igno rant Americans ever read your speech, for dey run after us like ve vas a lot of rabbits. Vot you tink ef dot? Can't you send some of your speeches right away? Dey don't know how terrible ve are. Can't you move my army back to Belgium vere ve von all our glory? My me can vip all the vimmcn and chilelren vot elem Belgians can bring us. But dese Americans are so rough and ignorant. We can't make 'em understand that Ave are the greatest soldiers on earth and ven ve try to sing 'Deuchland Ueber Alles' dey laugh like a lot of monkeys. But ve are getting de best of de Americans. We can outrun dem. Papa, if ve are not do best fighters on earth ve are sure de best runners. Nobody can keep up mit us when ve tink of eler dear olel Rhine, anel my army never did tink so much of elat. dear old river. Let me know right ayay vot to do by return postoffiice.
