WAR REMAKES ONCE
"LOUNGE LIZARD" INTO
A "REGULAR FELLER"
London, Dec. 20.— (By Mall.)—"You
I can't always stage a world war to woo
a fellow from his lotus-lilies!"
The remark came from a young
British officer, commenting on the dif
ference the war had made to his man
! hood.
Four years ago he was a social lap
■ <»g for Mayfair's doll women, with no
mbition but to lead an aimless life
. ml seek popularity. He was just a
j makeshift of a man.
Then when war broke out the doll
J women who had hitherto looked upon
,im ns "such a nice boy" began to bint
i;t white feathers, he felt his oppor
tunity slipping from him, and in des
peration joined the arrnr.
Removed from all his accustomed
comfort and adulation for a time he
, floundered, but after a while his old
j df sire for popularity reasstrted it self,
i h» problem that presented itself to
his mind was- how to become popular
among all these rough-and-ready
men" They scoffed at his nice man-I
ners. jeered at. his effiminacy, and of
ten held up to ridicule his carefully
thought out attempts nt friendliness.
Eventually ho saw himself as he really
was, and resolutely set about to rectify
matters, to build himself a character
and t<> form for himself an ideal.
Today his whole division knows him
for a splendid fighter, a loyal friend,
and an all-round "regular feller"; but
he declares that he owes the division
a debt of gratitude, for it. was they
who "beat him into it."
He has made many friends among
his men and looks back in wonderment
! at the thing lie was In those old satis- I
! fied days. There is not much like!!
I hood that lie will ever degenerate
bis old position as a drawing room
ornament.
