Hardships Ignored. Wounded Man
Tells Mother— Don’t Let Them
Hinder Your W ar Work
FARMS and ORCHARDS
By Mrs. Hazel Pedlar Faulkner
From a hospital somewhere la
France a wounded American has writ-
ten to his parent,:
"We are going through hardships,
but the hoy, a n taking hold In tha
good old American way.”
What a message (or those of us
who hare remained at hornet What
a challenge to the vast army of men
and women who are In the homa
guard, carrying on in the thousand
and one ways that the exigencies of
war have brought upon us.
"We are going through hardships."
Wo can believe that whe/i we re
call the dauntless charges which our
hoys have been making over there,
and the daily lengthening casualty
lists which are resulting from their
fearless devotion to the task that la
set before them.
We know they are going through
hardships, when we stop to think of
the hundreds upon hundreds who are
wounded, and who for the time be
ing at least need care and attention.

Of course they are going through
hardships. those boys from your
home and mine. Hardships are a
part of war. They are the inevitable
result of a state of war. And when
war is waged by an enemy so skilled
in all the fiendish deviltries In
which the Germans have indulged,
they are the inescapable portion of
eve: y scHler participating.
But hardships are not the part of
the war these soldiers of ours are
thinking most about. They are but
the incidents in the day’s work.
"The boys are taking hold in the
good old American way.”
Could there be a better statem ent
of their manner of facing what comes
to them ’ Could there be a more def

days which test the mettle of our
The time for our message to the
boys has come acain. The Fourth

to this wounded soldier’s challenge.

Are we going to take hold in the
“good old American way?”
We have not had to go through
hardships —ours have been an easier
p=rt. We have known little of sacri
fice or deprivation. Compared with
the offering of our boys, we have
done nothing as yet. And now, here
is the challepee sounded to us.
The good cld American way is all
that is a»ked of us. What is that
You must frame the answer, moth
ers and sisters of the west. Youra

which the nation will make to the
boys overseas. There Is not one of
us who would not spare her Bon If
she could—yes, even spare some
other mother's son the pain and
hardship he must bear. W’e are not
asked to do that. We could not,
though we would.
But we ran make his part easier to
