MC[LELA WRITES HOME Shortly after America satisfied the yearning of every true American heart and declared war against the Kaiser. Major Orris I. McLellan offered his services to Uncle Sam, but he was too old-on paper. The major, however, thinks a man is as old as he feels and wasn't a bit bluffed by the regulations-no, not even the fraction of a bit. So he made his way to France to join anything in the fighting line without further loss of time. While he was waiting for the decision, a Frenchman sought to inveigle him into one of those propositions where you put your money into a certain venture and spend the rest of your life wondering why you did it; but McLellan was too old a fox for that -this was one time when 64 years became a handy asset. He was shot and painfully wounded by the Frenchman. So McLellan spent a number of weeks in the hospital and when suf ficiently recovered, he joined the Foreign Legion and immediately be came a candidate for future bullets -as anybody will tell you who knjws anything about the Foreign Lea Ion, the most famous organiza tion in the war, and the one to which is ever assigned the posts of great est danger and honor. The following letter by McLellan to his old friend. B. P. Sullivan, president of the Public School Ath letic League of New Orleans, tells more in detail of his life in the Le gion, the principal qualifications to enter which are a desire to fight and an ability to stand the "gaff," and is a sermon, in itself on the text, "Never Give Up": "I am enjoying the best of health and holding my own with the rest of the first-class soldiels in 4Le Le gion Etranger' (Foreign Legion); five hours' real drilling every day, and it must be very bad weather when we do not go out for drill. We drill full equipment like the pic ture of a soldier on this note paper, and the step is very quick. The Foreign Legion is .the most cele brated fighting division in the French army; all of them have won the War Cross and many other high honors; they are generally selected for dangerous duties; they have never failed, nor have they been de feated. It is said that fifty-one dia lects are spoken in 'Le Legion.' I counted twenty different nationali ties in my company (the First Com pany, First Etranger) and there may be more. The essential qualifica tions are a desire to fight and first clam physical condition. Ta is way I at 44 years old was accepted. The French soldier is well take. care of in every respect, and is a frst-class ighter. "As I must go out for some exer cise, I must close, hoping this finds you and yours well and properous, I remain, very sincerely, yours rs spetfully, "0. J.

EVERY SOLDIER WILL WEAR NUMBERED TAG To insure prompt identification of enlisted men of the army who may be killed or wounded, a num bered tag system similar to that In the British and French armies has been adopted by the War Depatt ment.
