One death Is accredited to that dis

The prompt action of authorities In

All schools, churches, theaters, and

"France, Oct. 8, 1918.
The following letter was received

Herbert, who is in service over there:
"Well I have left St. Mosalre. We
are up on the front. It gets pretty
hot up here sometimes, but a person

Brewster was right when he said this
war was fierce. Up at the front we
sure see some awful things. I was
up on the Toul Sector in that drive

didn't imagine there was so many
guns sticking around In the brush,
but when they broke loose you didn't

REV. VAN MS ON WAR RELIEF
j Declares Urgent Necesity of Keeping
Up Best Efforts In Spite Of The
, Talk Of Early Peace
Somebody Cares 'Till The Boys" Come
Is the war really about to end? For
months past, while the hope and pros
pect for peace seemed constantly to
grow brighter, we have compelled
ourselves to carry on unabated our
I grim preparations for battle. We
j knew that we dare not relax our vlg-
ilance or weaken in our effort until
final and . complete victory should
I come. So we have splendidly equip
ped our army with all that is needed
to make it what it is today, the most
wonderful ' fighting machine ' the
world has ever known.'' We have
put into the hands of trained men the
I implements of warfare, and we have
i put into their hearts a spirit of cour
age and. confidence and high idealism
as fine as the spirit of the old crusad
ers. Napoleon said that this inde
finable something which we call mor
ale is to other factors in war as three
to one." Now when the day of peace
finally comes and is made secure, we
may put into the scrap heap most of
this machinery of war and pray that
it never will be used again, but the
morale of our men hat finest part
of their Equipment must be sustained
until they have found their places
again in our home Ufa ana civil at
tain. How much is it worth to
bring back to Crook county the splen
did men who have gone out from us
three hundred of them perhaps
and bring with them unbroken all
the strength of their training and
discipline, the rich fruits of their ex
periences and the spirit of their splen
did adventure? If the government is
right in estimating that we would
netf& to spend 24 billion dollars to
keep our army adequately trained
and equipped ne'xt year, surely we
can afford to spend the $170,500,000
that the united war work committee
is asking to keep up its splendid mor
ale '"till the boys come home." This
is at the ratio of $140 for training
and military equipment to every doly
lar for morale. No money we have
spent or shall spend in this business
is more wisely or willingly spent than
what we have given for the work of
the Y. M. C. A. and the other six ag
encies o fsimilar purpose and char
acter, approved by military men in
the field and endorsed by the Presi
dent at home. Upon tbese depend
this morale so valuable in battle, so
vital in the .years of peace.
Just one thought more. Someone
says: "If the war is so nearly over,
why should all this money be need
ed?" If peace should be declared to
morrow and preparations begin for
bringing back our two million men
airfl women from "over there," it
would take more than a year before
all could be home. This is the esti
mate of the government. This year
would be for most of them a time of
comparative idleness, except for such
study and recreation as the Y. M. C.
A., K. C, Y. W. C. A., Jewish Welfare
Board, War Camp Community Ser
vice, American Library Association,
and the Salvation Army, are planning
to provide These furnish the soldier
with a hoihe life, recreation, churA
and school. And at no period of his ,
stay over there will these services be
more needed by him than during the
long period of demobilization. We
have proven to the boys that "some
body cares" all the way to the front
line. And we will prove In the com
ing campaign that "somebody cares"
all the war back till he gets home.
