An Idaho
Sailor's Sense Of
Congressman Burton L. French
was asked fur a statement ou the
importance of the Fifth Victory loan.
He has just returned from a six
weeks trip to the war zone and has
Interviewed many of our soldiers in
the army and the navy.
He said: "On the Leviathan 1 met
a young Idaho boy who is in the navy.
Tb's young man has crossed the
ocean repeatedly and is now engaged
in assisting to bring home our boys
from France.
"The young man said, 'Of course
I want to go home but when I look
arouud in the Leviathan and see 80
soldiers In the shell shock ward,
150 soldiers in the t. b. ward, see the
many boys who have lost an arm or
have been desperately woundefi
who are going around with crutches,
and think that nearly 75,000 of
soldier boys will never return,—I feel
that I have had only a small part,
since I have escaped uninjured, in
winning the war, and I do not pro
pose asking to he released from
service till the last soldier shall be
returned home.' "
"The name of this young man is
Norman O'Donuell, of St.
Idaho. 1 was proud of Norman when
he made those remarks and it is the
best appeal I can think of for the
Fifth Victory Loan.
"Those who are asked to subscribe
to it have done little
in comparison
with the service of our dear boys who
bave given two years out or the best
part of their lives, who have
given a
limb, and health, and even life itself.
Of course,
we must over-subscribe
the Fifth Victory Loan, and wo will
do it."
