Soldier Boys Letters Camp Lewis Sept 8, 1918 C. T. Bogert, Dear Sir: I promised to write you and give you my address after I ar rived in camp, so here goes. We arrived at the camp about 8 o’clock on the morning of the 31st, we took the preliminary ex amination and were assigned to our quarters. We did nothing Saturday, but Sunday we took the physical examination. Monday morning I was put on K. P. (kitchen police) ajl day. at about 4 p. m. we were all taken over to the infirmary and given our first vacination and inocula tion, we have two yet to take one-week apart, that means one tomorrow and one the next Mon day. After each inoculation (or shot we have 24 hours rest, to recu perate in. Several of the boys were so sick that they had to be taken to the hospital after the first shot, they say that one out -of the 3 taxes effect and makes a man awfully sick, if so, I still mine coming, because the first -one did not affect me in the least During the first inoculation (or 21 days) we are under strict quarantine, and cannot leave the barracks, but we get nearly ev-1 erylhing we need by serdir.g to the canteen by some older soldiei who is not under quarantine. Wednesday we weie all taken ■over and given our final examin ation and mustered into the U. S N. A., then we signed up our in - surance papers and went back t the barracks. Wednesday night we were issued our clothing which consisted of 2prs shoes, 1 per dress, lper drill, 5 pr socks :2pr cotton 3 woolen, three under drawers. 2?r trousers, 2 shirts, 1 hat, 1 blouse or coat, 1 suit union alls.l raincoat and 1 overcoat.. .bo you see we are well supplied with clothing, also 1 belt. Thursday afternoon 28 of us were trtn ftrred here to the 76. h Inft, and several other bunches -of boys were transferred to ma chine gun divisions and other •companies. Fksnk Jelinek and Harry Qrr, the 2 boys that came with me, -were not transferred at the same time I was, but I heard that they were to be transferred the ne. t -day, Frank going as aM. P„ military police, and Harry to the Ist left, lam going to try an find Own as soon as we are out of quarantine. Since Thursday we have been receiving drill instruction and have heard several good lectures on military discipline and courte sy and care of the body. Each man has his individual steel cot or bunk with a straw mattress and he is supposed to keep the floor cleaned up around his bunk. He is also compelled t.i shave at least 3 tim. 8 a week, take a bath at least once every day and keep his clothes washed dean. We have a damp, smoky atmos phere here, that does not seem to agree with me, as I have a c«!d all the time since I came. We are about 15 miles from Tacoma, and between 30 and 50 feet above sea levd. Weil 1 think I had better c r ose for this time, so will say good - bye, give my best regards to ev ary one. Would be glad to hear from all who care to write. Cheyenne Record. CHEYENNE WELLS, CHEYENNE COUNTY, COLORADO, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19, 1918 Pvt Fay L. Bidinger Dit.ch’mt Co. G 76th Inft Camp Lewis Branch Tacoma, Wash. Tin Cans and Fruit Pits Wanted by Government Ry. Mt. News Sept. 14, 1918. The government has issu< d a requist to the housekeepers to save tin cans. Nut shells and fruit pit, to be used in the mak ing of carbon for gas masks, are also needed. The request comes thru the bureau of conservation of' the Mountain division of the American Red Cross. This bu reau. formerly known as the sal vage department, will hencefotth be in closer touch with govern ment needs, and will work direct ly with it. Mrs. H. H. Tomkins Jr., has recently been appointed associate director of the bureau to assist C. E. Pester. No Covenanted Peace With Germany. Americq unless we repudiate civil, zaticn and abanion humanity and put a premium on savagery and brutality, can make no cov enanted ptac \ no peace by agree ment or negotiation with Germa ny. It would be acovenant with hell, a partnership with infamy. Nor would such a peace secute peace, except so long as it suited Germany. We can judge the fu ture only by the past, and to Germany sacred treaties are like scraps of paper only. Germany’s whole history is a record of na tional treachery, national bad f i.h, national dishonor, national .carder and national infamy. Artie.t 5G of the Hague Con vetili6:i, to whicii Germany sol emnly subicribjil, is; “Family honor and rights, the lives of persons and private property, as well as religous convictions and practice must be respected. Pri vate property cannot be confiasu ted.” The world knows how Germany has observed this article. There are millions of individual witness es to her fl igrant breaches of it. Every acre of foreign soil Ge • many lias occupied bears mute but unimpeachable evidence of it There is plenty of German e\ i denci of it. too. ’’Thegrolsof different sorts seized in the enemies’, territories are in such large quantities that the difficulty of knowing where tD put them increases day by day At the request of the Prussian minister of wsr, all chambers of commerce have bee a asked to give all possible information with regard to storehouses, sheds, etc whihh cou'd be used temporarily to warehouse the spoil.” From the Frankfurter Z»itung January 1918. The German papers have been crowded with advertisements of sale of property taken from France and Belgium. Members of the Reichstag have boasted of, o' hers have censured, the amount of booty brought to Germany from the occupied territory, and the destruction has been far greater than the confiscation. Of the old men and%hildren murdered, of the women and girls ravished, of the noncombat ants taken from their homes and d -i orted to work for their con qu Tors, of the merchant ships sunk and passengers and crews murdered, of the hospital ships sunk, the hospitals and uoforti-j fled cities bombed, of the mulila ; lion and crucifixion and othe:-, wise of wxn led and captured ! soldiers—of all this beastliness there is plenty of evidence, evi dence that no one can disbelieve. The best answer to German peace propaganda is sinking more U-boats, sending more men to Trance, speeding up our work along every line, and a heavy subscription to the Fourth Liber ty Loan. Peace must mean the triumph of right and justice, the defeat of Germanism, not a truce with it, not a compromise with it. Our soldiers in France are glo riously doing their part toward victory; the Liberty Loan sub scription must show that the peo ple at home are doing theirs.

West. 26 4 j A Message to You From His Majesty, King George Vth The following letter is given i our Solcur Boys wneii they lui “Jver There.” Soldiers ot the United State, the people of the Br.t.. h lsi.. Welcome You on your way i tak ; your stand beside the armn of many Nation.-, now fighting .1 the Old World the great batii for Human Freeeo.n. The allies will gain new heai and spirit in your company, I wish that 1 could shake li. hand of each one 01 you and hi you God speed on your mission. George R. I. Can any loyal, thinking cl titan of Colorado mistake the necessity and me wisdom of again placing Julias C. Gunter in the executive chair? Every voter’s Americanism is involved in tuts. For every true patriot must want Colorado to do its best for the nation. There has been no shadow on this slate's splendid war accoxu* plishnients in the past. There must bo none in the future. Opponents of Governor Gunter howl that be lias turned Colorado over to the profiteers. But they arc careful not to mention specific examples of profiteering. They know the United States government is the only public agency exercising price regulating functions. And they know further that regularly published reports of the federal depaitnient of labor show prices of food products in Colorado to Le lower than In almost all other states. If Herbert Hoover lived In Colorado he would be the last person to b fooled by the cries of "profiteering." But it shouldn't require a Hoover tc detect the similarity between the pres ent wall about "profiteering'" and the opposition's old-titne political cam paign cry of “wolf.” “Dcn’t swap horses in the middle o* the stream.” That's Just as soun' advice today as it was fifty years age Bear it in mind on primary day, Ser tember 10. The pro-Gcmians are for any w didatc but Governor Gunter. T1 want a change. NO AGATE MOUND ITEMS No schooi yet—Teachers are very hard to get it seems. M a.
