Hardships Ignored, Wounded Man

By Mrs. Hazel Pedlar Faulkner
From a hospital aomewbera ia

ten to bis parents:
"We ar. going through hardship,
but the boy are taking hold In th.
good old American way."
What a message for those of n.
who have remained at home! What
a challenge to tb. vast army of m.a

fearless devotion to th. task that is
set before them.
We know they are going th rough
hardship, when we stop to think of
the hundreds upon hundreds who are
wounded, and who for the time be
ing at least need ear. and attention.
' Of coarse they are going through
hardshlpa, those boy. from your
bom. and mine. Hardships are a
part of war. They are the inevitable
result of a state of war. And when
war ia waged by an enemy so atille4
in all the fiendish deviltries la
which the Germans hav. Indulged,
they are the inescapable portion of
every soldier participating.

We hav. not had to go through
