Many battle scenes In various parts
of the world are pictured with much
ability in thess psges, word pictures
written by this T. M. C A. author, who
says hs ts 225 pounds In weight.
Ths book pictures the life of the
British army In the burning sands of
ths Egyptian desert, the allurement and
pitfalls of the streets of Cairo, work
n the training camps of England and
Scotland, service In the hospitals and
on the battlefields of the Marne, Tpres,
Verdun and the other sections of the
western front in France. It gives ln
tlmste descriptions of ths day before
the "big push," ths morning; ths "boys"
go over the top. the walking wounded,
the acts of hsrolsm, of kindness, of
unbelievable humanity amid the black
est hours of war.
"Going along ths hattlefront the day
before a battle." writes Mr. Whltehalr,
"I asked a friend:
"'What are these little atockadesT
"Ever so often within the line. I
found amall atockades surrounded by

all of them empty. My friend re
plied: " Those are for the prisoners who

The following is an interesting let

at & o'clock we went up on deck. To
my delight we were summoned by
British destroyers. At 10 o'clock the
passengers were taken off by the tender

But why should we assume that the
democratic interest is dead in Ger
many? That it is obscured is evident
enough; but that Is due to the obses
sion, so diligently cultivated by Junker
ism, that Germany's very existence is
at stake. If there is a real, though re
pressed, interest in, popular govern
ment in Germany, what would be more
likely to dispel their delusion; what
more likely to disarm the Teutonic
Junkers and entente jingoes, withal
than an appeal to Join in a democratic
congress issued from some neutral
source and? responded to favorably by
the belligerent free peoples? Surely it
is a hard saying that a people who, in
their calmer hours, are of unsurpassed
mental capacity are now incapable of
being brought by any evidence to a
reasonable outlook upon the world.
Nor is it believable that the country
men, of Luther, Schiller and Carl Schurz
are too brutish to feel the ethical ap
peal of human welfare, j
some more. We must work until we
are tired, and then go on working.
Just stop and think of this one fact,
that in No Man's Land the Germans
are slitting the throats of wounded
American boys. Men and women of
America, do you realize that they are
our boys they are murdering? It may
be your boy, and it may be my boy.
Can any of you stop work or stop giv
ing? Can we ever forgive our enemy,
who knows no law of war or decency?

Oregon Boys In Ranks.
"While in Liverpool I stayed at the
Adelphi Hotel, and the American Army
and Navy Club has headquarters at the
Adelphi. While sipping coffee there I
saw among the crowd of American of
ficers a smart, trim, well-mannered
Lieutenant, He looked familiar, but I
could not place him. I noticed he was
looking at me. Finally he met me at
the elevator, and as I had an American
flag pinned on my coat he said, 'You
are an American!' I said, 'What is your
name?" He replied, 'Blanchard.' "1 re
plied: I knew Mr. and Mrs. Link
Blanchard, at Oregon City.' Then he
Informed' me they were his father and
mother. We clutched each other's
hands and 'grinned' at each other. I
had not seen him since he was 6 months
old.. This was Lieutenant Eldon
Blanchard, disembarkation officer at
Liverpool for the American Army, and
a good one, too. With a softness In his
voice and eyes, he told m of the little
wife and babies he left at Oak Grove,
Or., and- I promised to go and see them.
He said, 'Ring mother up, and tell her
I am well.'
'Oregon City may well be proud or

leave his dear ones and go so far away

No. Are we down-hearted? No! No!

to win. We owe It to future genera

take a new oath to our country to do
all in our power to win. Only those of
