Tha coming of tha American eoUMers
Into France haa given birth to an en
tirely new crop of Army stories. Kvon
If sorao of them ara not true they
make mighty good tnessroom gossip
and th.-y listen mighty good to the of

great unknown. This also Indicates
that they ara yarna not especially
dreamed out for tha benefit of the un
suspecting correspondent so the reneor
can pass them, tf ha Is kind, and not
lend aid to the enemy. Not all the
good meesroom stories ever get into
print, for Instance, like tha pack mule
lost ovar an embankment In tha Ialanda
in Ills. When 1 laat heard tha atory of
that pack mule It waa packing 19.000
tons of Government property, because
the company commandera had to ac
count for property losses some way and
tha park mule was the easiest way out.
I-aeaa Pimm Bsssaeraag.
But get back to the new crop of
tneraroom stories. Most or them have
to do with tha Hmdtea the Americana
..have pulled since reaching France.
Anyone who knowa anything about tha
war gam knowa what the ensineer
have to do. In consequence officers
and prlalea alike have enjoyed many
a quiet lausjh. During the recruiting
days, when so many young fellows
who were I S -inch-hts h collars Joined

want to carry guns. That laugh proved
a boomerang, for they were the first
to get a touch of the real thing In what
the Lnglish call the Cambria show.
Now the humor and Joke. Every en

the telling. One version: It seems that

unwritten agreement, the artilleries on
each side exchanged only a certain
number of ahota a day. Tha commander
of one American battery, after a day
or two. marked on hla map a certain

His battejry waited at couple of day.
In the meantime hla scouts confirmed

Of course It waa a rase of get even.
Tha Germans, thinking a French but
tery had turned the trick, opened fire
on an Innocent French sector with
deadly effect. Since then Americans
have been called "traxy Americans" by
the French aoldiers.
Aaaerlraae Get Flatting Mad.
Here's another one: An American
force shortly after taking over a sector
of the trenches was Invited to join
some Canadians and French on a raid
ing party. Here comes the kink In this
vara. One of the rules, so the story
haa it. of trench warfare In the quieter
sectors. Is that when one side or the
other raptures a trench, no attempt Is
made at that time to retake the trench.
Well on this occasion, while the Ameri
cana were getting ready to Join In this
raid, some boches dropped over and
drove the Americans out. Instead of
the Americana remaining on the out
side looking In .when they got to
gether after having been driven out.
hey got mad and started In retaking
the lost trenches. What made the
Canadians and French sore was the
fact that they, out of sheer courtsey.
bad to help the craxy Americans.
It would take a bonk to tell all of
these new stories. Juil the same, here
is one that I the truth and one with
out doubt that will be paased by the
censor. At every American headquar
ters, yes and at every scattered unit
camp, officers and men are learning
to speak ranch by attending dally
French classes. At this headquarters
there are two French classes, one held
In the morning between 11 and 12. the
professor being a French soldier we
call Bobby (I'll have more to say about
Bobby and his wounda in another let
ter) and a French speaking English
chaplain. The officers are all learn
Ing fast, but there Is ona young officer
i handsome devil that he Is) well known
In Portland who prides himself that he
has mastered tha language. Ona night
hla week, the evening following the
decorating of tha French soldiers, he
was Invited to dlrfe with some of the
French officer.
During the course of the meal
Pretty young French mls came to the
able and spoke to tha French officers.
f course "our hero" waa properly In
roduced. He waa out to make an Im
presslon. so following the American
custom he spoke to her In French
and gave her what he thought was
Invitation to Join the party. What he
thought ha was saying waa "Voulex
veus venlr avec nous?" What he really
said was. "Voulex vous tenlr mon nex.
Of course the young lady did nothing
f the kind, but she did stamp her
hapely foot and right properly she
railed blm to order.
It Is amusing to the officers and men
f this command when they pick up
ha home papers and see thla or that
ex-member of the regiment has re
urned home after having slipped out
f the service for some cause or an
ther. only to get his picture In the
paper as a hero, with nothing better to
how than his Mexican border medal.
Army records would show that aome of
hem were rejected because of physical
liability, which Is no fault of their
a n. but most of them got out of being
soldier because father or mother did
ot want their sons to he soldiers and
called o:. Senators or Influential friends
home to work Washington for their
release from the service. These clip-
ngs are cut from the papers and duly
posted on the company's bulletin
ards. then at mess time the enlisted
men on the Job have a right merry
lausrh over the "hero."
Ilserr Steele Get Oat.
It I lo atrange how stories will
get "out back home. The Oregonian
that reached camp thla week had the
picture and a atory about a private In
the regiment who waa aupposed to be
under arrest somewhere in France.
Well he wasn't under arrest nor had
he ever been. When the atory was
published he waa on guard and as it
happened when tha paper reached camp
he waa on guard again.
Here if a bit of advice to the folks
at home. If you have anything you
isli your Individual soldier to enjoy
don I club together and send It "to our
soliilera In France." .but send it to
the individual soldier. I'se, his name
and the organisation to which he be
longs. Chancea are If atuff is sent the
other way. the man or men will never
see it. Don't think tha American sol
dlera do not get It. for they do, but
perhaps not the men you wish to have
it. Just keep sending stuff to the sol
diers In France. It all helps, but when
you wish a certain soldier to get what
you send, send It to him individually.
We have read over here about the
number of boxes some person has sent
every day. Maybe he sent them and
then again may be he didn't. Anyway
this regiment hasn't received any of
the boxes yet. Maybe he'll start an
other Congressional Investigation now
when he reads thla. If so. please put
an Oregon boot on him.
It might be well to Inform the North
west Patriotic News that the soldiers
over here have something to do beside
writing pieces for that publication.
Then. too. the chancea are that If the
soldier did have time to write "a piece"
for that publication the censora would
not let It pass- The Army over here
is not a correspondence school of
Journalism. The men are being taught
how best to fight Germans and how
best to take good physical care of
themselves. I
