installing a system of handling these
supplies so that there would be the
least possible delay in forwarding
them. I managed to get away with
it until August when I was relieved
to take charge of the tracing of lost
and missent shipments In the property
branch of the depot quartermaster's
"The system of shipping supplies at
first was based on a daily automatic
olan whereby each division would re
ceive each day the same number of
rations and the same amount of sup
plies, according to the strength of
the various divisions. Tho greatest
obstacle overcome by this system was
the transportation of the supplies.
Trains made up each day were for
warded to the different destinations.
These trains were composed of a cer
tain number of cars or rations, medical.
engineer, ordnance and signal corps
supplies and several cars of miscella
neous supplies, principally organiza
tion property and personal bapeage of
the officers of organizations attached
to the divisions.
"This system was effective for 20
divisions, but the number of fighting
men was constantly increasing, so this
system had to be abandoned. It was
replaced by the installing of railheads
and divisional areas, one railhead for
each area. The supplies were shipped
to these railheads and distributed by
the officers In charge to the various
divisions and organizations. Supply
officers knew exactly where to go for
their supplies and each railhead officer
knew what organizations were to be
supplied by his railroad. Supplies were
distributed by truck or narrow guage
railroad. The supplies were taken as
near to the trenches as practical and
healthy. Fritz some time would blow
up the boys' dinner, but it was not an
every day occurrence.
-"Today the mess sergeant bought
three hogs, each weighing around 150
pounds, which we will have for our
Thanksgiving dinner. We have no
butchers In the company, so the cooks,
the company mechanic, top sergeant,
company clerk and bugler proceeded
to kill, scrape and clean the big item
for the dinner on Thursday. The ac
counts of the slaughter are sidesplit
ting. First, the hogs were strung up
by the hind logs in regular slaughter
style. They stuck each pig and hit it
on the head with an ax. Of course, all
three pigs died, but gee whiz, what a
hard death. Then they undertook to
scrape them. The water was scalding
hot. which was tiptop. The first pig
was doused in and left in tho water
for about five minutes. When they
tried to scrape him, they found he was
almost cooked and he wouldn't scrape
worth a cent. The top sergeant came
to the rescue by salvaging several
straight edged razors and Mr. Pig was
given a nice close shave, leaA'ing the
roots in the hide. (The boys will cuss
at dinner when they strike those
bristles). Then they held a council of
war and decided not to leave the next
one In so long. That process proved
more successful. The pigs are all
cleaned now and hung up. awaiting the
ovens and I am sure the dinner will
be a never to be forgotten one."
