HENDRICKS GIRLS ORGANiZ
Three Classes Elect Officers; Juniors
Prefer Mob Rule.
To organize or not to organize; that's
been the question lie fore the members of
the various classes at Hendricks hall this
week. Long ago the sophomores elected
Stella Sullivan to head their members,
and they have progressed under the so
called oppressing rule of organization
and have done much in their skillful
handling of the freshman initiation.
Following the example set by their su
periors. the freshmen have organized,
electing Marie Holden, president; Helen
Clark, secretary and treasurer, and Mar
garet llussell sergeant-at-arms.
The seniors met on Tuesday night,
saw the profound wisdom of organiza
tion and also elected officers. These are,
[.resident, Mrs. Katherine Johnson; sec
retary and treasurer, Frances Stiles;
sergeant-at-arms, Morieta Howard.
Rut members of the junior class feel
themselves above the need of such an of
ficial banding together. "We understand
each other perfectly,” they say.-‘‘We be
'ieve in an absolute democracy, mob
'ole, with abandon of all offices and the
:al»e ar.d unjust sway exerted by those
Invested with power is absolutely ad

Lamar Tooze Tells How Leslie Died
Oregon Man, Utterly Regardless of Danger Amid Hail of Ma
chine Gun Fire; His Men C ry at Funeral.
A letter from Lamar Tooze to the Beta
Theta I’i chapter here, gives the details
of the death of his brother, Leslie, who
was killed by a Berman sniper on Sept.
2S The letter in part follows:
“Our regiment was in the big battle
of-. but my battalion was not or
dered into the front lines until Satur
day. Leslie had the 2nd platoons of his i
company and war' in the first wave. I 1
was in charge of the snipers and scouts,
and ray work carried me into every part
of the line. I saw Leslie several times
in the morning and cautioned him repeat- |
edly about taking cover whenever prae- 1
tumble. He was positively regardless of
personal danger: ho didn’t know what
fear meant. He seemed to be solicitous
about my welfare only, because be al
ways had said he thought I would get
reckless in action. 'Why. 1 saw him 1 ok
ing over the edge of a shell hole toward
a place where he suspected machine
guns, in full view of the enemy, and un
der constant fire, as if the bullets were
pens. The last time 1 saw him was at 2
p. m. at a farm. His advance had been
halted by some snipers in the woods.
T v. as ordered to take four men and mop
(hem up. Before leaving I cautioned Les
lie again. ‘I'm all right. Lem; yen watch
out for yourself. You should have seen
the first and second platoons clean out
of this farm.’ and he laughed enthusi
astically. When I returned from my mis
sion after the snipers, he had gone for
ward. Within two hours his platoon had
advanced a half a mile under a storm of
bullets and shrapnel, through woods alive
with machine guns to a ridge 100 yards
beyond the woods, where late in the af
ternoon a sniper singled him out as the
leader (for he was always at the head of
his platoon in the thickest of the fight)_
and sent a bullet through the base of his
brain. He died instantly. The platoon got
no further and had to retreat to the edge
of the woods where we dug in.
“Volunteers from his company crossed
that bullet-swept ridge and recovered his'
body. Those men of his were gallant fel
lows and would have gone anywhere with
Les., because he had their full confi
dence. We laid him to rest the next day
at —:—. It was a painful and solemn duty
to have to supervise the funeral arrange
ments, but it was comforting to know
that lie was laid to rest with a degree of
decency. The men in his platoon cried
like children: men who h:ul been in the!
face of death a hundred times. These
men are wonderful, 1 tell you. They are j
inexorable in their fighting spirit, and :
soft of heart. 1 plan on removing the
remains to the States after the war. The
grave is plainly marked. He rests be
tween —-and - of our regiment. I i
feel T am licensed to tell you what his '
men told me. that his death was marked ]
by conspicuous gallantry 'and was due i
to his strict obedience’ to that ridge at j
"Time is no g'ory in war. boys. The
glory lies in the spirit of our brave men
who have shown such splendid traits of
bravery and softness of heart at times
when death and peril lurked in every
bush and every place. Why, I saw men
wade right through a hail of machine gun ,
bullets with parade-ground precision. |
never wavering always advancing. I j
could tell you a dozen stories of heroism I
and s< lf-sacrifice.
"We all had close calls, principally
from artillery and by the way. machine
guns and rifle fire are not nearly s.> bad
as an artillery bombardment. Two of my
snipers wore killed and one gassed out
of 27 men in the section. One of my men
was fatally wounded not 10 feet from
me—struck by a shell. Such nerve as he
showed! With Wood gushing from a gash
in his neck, he smiled at me and said.
‘Well. Lieutenant, they’ve got me. Just
lay me out straight, make me comfort
able and write my mother.’ I got him to
a hospit.al, but poor fellow, he died the
next evening. At the time he was struck
we were returning from I.eslie’s funeral.
Another time I laid as flat as a pancake
for five minutes with machine gun bul
lets kicking up the dirt all around me,
wounding a man on my right, and one
bullet went through the coat of a man
on my left. And another time Lieut. Mike
Walker fa Sigma Nu from Oregon) and
T ran a gauntlet of bullets, and bow we
got through unhurt still is marvelous to
"We leave in a day or two for another
sector. We are all ready to get into a
fight again because the more we battle
the quicker will the war be ended, and
we will return home. The American army
lias a splendid reputation, and the tac
tics introduced by General Pershing and
his associates are responsible for the
victories oil the whole front.”
