DOING HISTORIC ROME
Harold Standly Write of His Brie
Stay in Ancient City
Genoa, Italy, Jan. 12,4919
We arrived from Rome yesterday
noon after a rather tiresome trip
on one of these Italian trains.
Since I started this other letter
we have surely been seeing eome
sights in Rome. We spent Friday,
Saturday and Sunday, the first
three days we were in Rome, work
ing at the Embassy. Monday we
were paid off and the commanding
officer turned us loose to see Rome
Monday evening a bunch of the
gun crew from the Mundale came
down from Genoa to spend a few
days sightseeing so we decided to
stay in Rome until they got ready
to come back np here, consequent
ly we stayed over a week. Even
in that time a fellow didn't
have half enough time to see the
We got room at the Hotel
Milace and took most of our break
fasts and lunches at the Y. M. C.
A. and our dinners at some real
Italian cafe where we could get
spaghetti and garlic. The Y. M. C.
A. conducted the sightseeing
parties free and furnished carriages
and guides for us while we were
there. We also attended several
dances given for the Americans.
There were a lot of Red Gross
nurses there, also ambulance driv
ers'from'the Italian front who had
been working with the nurses at
the Base Hospitals. It surely
seemed good to be with some real
live American people again.
There are surely some fine
American people in Rome who
stayed there after the war broke
out. For instance through the
librarian at the Y. M. C. A. I
was introduced to a lady who was
born and raised in
kinds to take your francs and
cents. Also to every old temple
or art gallery you go to you have
to fish out a little entrance fee aud
tips to please the old monks or
care takers. This Miss Rohe took
us through the Roman Forum and
several other places of interest be
cause she wa3 writings a story for
an American magizine and Miss
Sterns told us on the sly that she
wanted to get material for her
story and for us to be as interest
ing as possible, one took some
pictures of us and said she would
send us some when she got them
finished. We talked aud gabbed
all the time for she asked me all
about the Kansas University and
all about the fraternaties and
sororities in Lawrence. Look in
all the paper and magazines for
the next year for no telling when
our story will appear. Her last
story was in August National
Geographic Magizine, "The Re
public of San Marina,"
We are still waiting to be un
loaded and of course our sailing
date may be seyeral weeks off yet.
I have not the slightest idea when
I will get home for there is some
talk that the ship will be kept here
for a couple or three months to do
some trading between Mediteran
ean posts. - I will let you know
the developments later.
I have been playing for the Y
M. U. A. church services every
Sunday night since I've been here
or I would't go ashore tonight
The hrst Sunday nignt we were
in the "Y" and I got drafted into
playing for that night. Since
then the Y. M. C. A. secretary-
has told me to be sure and be there
every Sunday night so I've kept
my word. The Y" is about th
