I were daily being moved into
the port of St. Nazaire, there to
divest themselves of the countless
cooties the front line and the alleged
"rest areas" had donated, to stand
tiresome inspections and, at last, to
sail for home. Time moved slowly

One morning a buck private stood
on one of the board walks leading
dctwn a barracks-lined street. He
was watching a number of his. com
rades as they went through the
morning' exercises, which he had
successfully dodged. He glanced to
one side and noted a trim-looking
soldier in a neat tailor-made uni
form. The "buck" started looking
at the man's shoes. They were tan
and handsomely shined. He com
pared them to his own shoes, which
were of the "hobbed-nail" variety

He then noted the puttees of the.
man. They were of tne Desi ma

while his own were "issu'e" and
were torn and soiled.

"buck" was possessed of a coat that
was several sizes too large for him
and had one of those tails that
flared out from all sides.
"Say, Bud, where in the devil did
you get all those swell clothes; you
must have a stand in with the sup
ply sergeant?" declared the "buck."
He slapped the stranger on the back
and, as he did so, to his amazement
caught a glimpse of the letters
"P. G." on the back of the leather
"What is this, anyway, a parade?"
continued the "buck." "Do you
think , you're fooling someone by
going around here with a 'prisoner-of-war'
sign on you? Are you try
ing to go A. W. O. L? Where id
you get those clothes?"
"Ich kanne nicht Englisch
sprechen." grunted the stranger as
he turned his face towards the
"Welt, I'll be damned! A Boche
running: around here in clothes fit
for a king and me with my pants
just hangin' together," declared the
'American. "How come you with- a
Yank uniform? Take them duds off
or you'll never get back to your
mamma! Take 'em off or I'll clean
up on you!"
The buck was just at the point of
. knocking down the prisoner and ap
propriating the fine clothes to his
own use when an officer showed up.
"Private Jones, leaves that Ger
man alone and get out there on the
drill field!" ordered the lieutenant.
"Well, sir, how comes that Boche
can wear our clothes?" returned the
Yank. "Look at me and then look
at him."
"Get out there on that drill field
or you'll not be going home for six
months!" commanded the officer.
The "buck" lost no time in com
plying with orders, but, as he made
his way towards his perspiring
comrades he was muttering to him
self and seeking to fathom prob
lems that were continually bobbing
up in his mind.
Wherein was there justice in per
mitting a German prisoner, a man
11. Vl n hn (lacnicsil .. J .l,nf .. t
Americans at the front, to wear a
Yank uniform? Had not men been
taught to honor and respect that
uniform? Had not it gone to the
graves with thousands of heroes
who had willingly sacrificed their
lives at Chateau Thierry. Cantigny,
Soissons, on the Marne, in Flanders,
St. Mihiel and in the ArgonneJ
But- Germans, as prisoners, did
wear the American uniform in the
rear areas where they were congre
gated for labor. It aroused indig
nation in the minds of every Yank
who gazed upon a Boche thus
clothed and marked with the "P. G."
sign upon his back.
While upon the subject of the uni
form let it be said that, of all the
types worn by -the various armies
at war in Europe, the American
olive drab was the most uncomfort
able. Its high, stand-up collar
made It a nuisance when men were
under conditions where they were
called upon to wear their uniforms
where they slept. The collar fitted
so tightly around the neck that men
were almost in misery in attempting
to sleep. If they unbuttoned the
collar the cold air chilled them.
The British, French, Belgia'ns and
even the "Germans had blouses with
roll collars and these aided in giv
ing some degree of comfort to the
The problem of fitting men- of
abnormal size often became serious
in the army. Breeches could usual
ly be obtained, but the problem of
the blouse was not so easy. In one
company there was a long and
rangy corporal who found It almost
impossible to obtain a proper fitting
blouse. When going through his
service in France he had clung to a
coat which he had had tailored be
fore he left the States. Finally,
when preparing to go home, this
blouse was lost. The supply ser
geant went to every extreme to find
a coat that would have sleeves long
enough to reach more than half way
down between the elbows and the
wrists. The search had been suc
cessful and at last the corporal was
given a blouse that had rubber
When the company arrived at the
port of embarkation there were
sieges in the "cootie mill." The
corporal's blouse was placed in the
hot sterilizer for its purification.
When it came out and was handed
back to him he immediately put it
on and stated to button it. He
was dismayed to find that the ter
rific heat of the sterilizer had
melted the rubber buttons to the
extent that the rubber had pene
trated all through the coat. The
garment was a ruin. ' It was only
through red tape, many explanations
and a special dispensation that he
was allowed to return to the United
States coatless.
What a wonderful concession it
was on the part of the military au
thorities when they agreed to give
the soldier his uniform when he
was discharged from service? The
men who came home from overseas
were, in most cases, clothed in gar
ments that had been worn by others,
second-hand ones, in other words.
Their old uniforms would be turned
In, sent to a renovating plant, where
they were made over and then Is
sued to the men at random.
As a consequence there was little
that attached a man to the uniform
he wore back home. It helped him
to hide his nakedness until a suit of
"civies" could be obtained and that
Is about all. The uniforms of the
veterans of the A. E. F. today are
not those that they can point to
with pride. Few man can say:
'"There is the uniform I . wore
through the Argonne."
An enlisted man had just received
his discharge from one of the de
mobilization camps of the east and
was proparing to go to a big city.
He-was clothed In a uniform that, in
addition to being too large, was
Though he had many friends in the
city he refrained from visiting
them. He did not want them to see
the typeof uniform he was wearing,
so contented himself by" retiring
early to his hotel room. The next
morning he arose early and went
immediately to a store. There he
purchased an entire outfit and hur
ried back to the room with it.
He soon lost his identity as a sol
dier and found himself fack in
civilian clothes after a period of two
years. He took the belt from the
breeches of the uniform, unscrewed
the collar ornaments, removed the
service stripes, placed them all with
the overseas cap and Identification
tags and mailed them home to his

gazed at the coat and breeches which
he had hung in the closet, "will be

The next meeting of the American
Women's Overseas league will be
held at the home of Mrs. C. C. Meyer
at houseboat 6, near Cemetery sta
tion on the Southern Pacific electric
line. Members have been requested
to take bathing suits, for Mrs.
Meyer's- backyard is a swimming
pool. It is important that every
eligible- woman join the "A. W. O.
L." before July 11, which is the date
set for the closing of the charter.
Women who served with the army,
navy, Y. M. C. A., Red Cross or any
of the welfare organizations in
France are entitled to membership
in the league..
Veterans of the 364th field hos
pital company will hold their an
nual reunion and banquet in the
Benson hotel next Saturday night.
Invitations have been sent out to the
100 or more men of Oregon who
served with the unit while at Camp
Lewis and in France. Harry Car
roll, John Helmer and James Vran
zian are among those who are pro
moting the affair. The organiza
tion almost a year ago completed the
publication of its history. Copies of
the book were sent to .General
Pershing, General William H. Johns
ton and other war leaders. Letters
from these men will be read at the
In order that newsboys as well as
the more fortunate sons of the well-to-do
may enjoy the advantages of
membership in tne boy scout or
ganization, a movement has been
started by the Detroit American Le
gion to make it possible for lads
who earn their livelihood on the
street to become full-fledged scouts.
The plan as set forth by Dr. Frank
B. Broderick, the Legion's state wel
fare officer, provides that posts of
the service men's organization in
each city and town organize the
newsboys into scout troops, buying
their uniforms and furnishing them
wun an .necessary equipment. The
movement will not be limited to
take in only newsboys but will In
clude all boys wno are anxious to
become boy scouts but because of a
lack of money cannot join.
"We believe that this is a real
Americanization movement," said
Dr. Broderick, who is fostering the
idea in Michigan. "Many newsboys
and other lads who are emploved in
street occupations are the sons of
aliens and they orfer a fertile field
for the teaching of American Ideals.
"It Is proposed that the members
of the Legion in each locality take
the boys Into their confidence, meet
with them and discuss business af
fecting the organisation. We ex
pect, of course. Legionnaires to act
as scout masters."
The step that Field Marshal Earl
Haig has taken" in his recent an
nouncement that the remainder of
his life shall be devoted to the in
terests of the men who fought un
der his command during the war is
one commendable in the eyes of all
former service men. The noted mili
tary leader is now the president of
the British Legion and is devoting
his entire time to the strengthening
of this organization in England.
Marshal Haig knows the problems
that are confronting the veterans
in England. He realizes, through
memories of bitter days at the
front, the causes that have brought
men to the point where they must
depend upon their governments for
compensation and aid. In those days
of war the enlisted man quite nat
urally could not come in close con
tact with the field marshal, but now
that he is discharged and back in
civilian life the barrier has been re
moved and he realizes that the man
who once commanded armies is now
endeavoring to make the British
government realize his needs.
Following the war a number xf
organizations of veterans came into
existence in England. They . were
all formed with the Idea of perpet
uating the memories of the war and
binding the veterans together for
the mutual good of all. There was
an overlapping of effort and little
good was accomplished in bringing
before the government the real
needs of the veterans. The British
Legion, which Is . similar tq the
American Legion, was an outgrowth
of all of these organizations and to
day its work Is being felt through
out the empire.

the surviving relatives of those who
lost their lives in the war. A mail
ing list of the beneficiaries of war
risk insurance policies made up of
the names of widows, and bereft
fathers and mothers of deceased
soldiers and sailors is now being
circularized extensively, and is be'
lieved to be in the hands of several
promoters of dubious undertakings.
In any event the surviving relatives
of those who died in the war are re
ceiving letters and literature from
all sorts of investment enterprises
which do not stand investigation.
The Bource of the insurance bene
ficiaries' mailing, list has not yet.
been learned. Whether it was ob
tained surreptitiously from govern
ment records is one question being
investigated. An organization in
Washington has been soliciting $10
subscriptions from insurance benefi
ciaries who receive installment
payments, on the promise that a bill
will be introduced in congress to
enable them to get new bonds for
the full amount of their policies.
These bonds, the Washington or
ganization says in its letters, would
have coupons attacned and would be
salable, presumably at face value.
The operations of this organization
are assumed to be wholly honest J
aitnougn tne aavisaouity or oenen
ciarles contributing to the fund is
open to a difference of opinion. The
American Legion has never consid
ered such a bill necessary.
Comparable to persons who mis
use the mailing list of the insurance
bureaus is another class of after-the-war
exploiters of ex-service
men ' specializing in attempts to
swindle veterans who insert adver
tisements or notices in publications
in an effort to get in touch with
former buddies. Many men who
have sought to find their old com
rades in this manner have received
letters from writers who say they
are former army nurses, themselves
trying to get in communication with
men whom they had attended in
hospitals. If the recipients of the
letters send an encouraging reply,
the "nurse" who is in reality a
man, judging from the evidence in
most cases becomes exceedingly
friendly in later letters, suggests
exchange of photographs and finally
discusses marriage. She will be glad
to join her mail-order dupe if he
will only send her money for car
fare and traveling expenses, she
writes. It is hardly necessary to
add that if a veteran does send
money, the rest is silence and the
case is one for the postoffice inspec
tors. -

During the four years that the
Germans occupied the Belgian city
of Roulers one of thefcchool build
ings was used as a barracks and
clubroom for the men. When the
enemy was driven from the town
the building was left much the
same as it had been during its days
of occupation. Long lirs of bunks
were left in tire basements ano.

over. ,

was assigned to the 364th field hos
