Ft. Casey, Wash., June 17, 1918.
Editor of the Enterprise, Indepen
dence, Oregon:
Dear Sir: Herewith the account of
tonight's incident:
The secretary was interviewing the
Fort Commander this afternoon when
the Captain of one of the companies
came in and said one or his men nau
received a telegram from his wife that
their little 8 months old baby was
dead, and he desired a furlough.This
man lives in Pennsylvania, therefore
much money as well as time was re
quired. The secretary met the man as he
was walking away from the office and
the heartbroken look on his face was
pitable to see. A few questions put
the secretary in possession of the de
tails and a way to help get money was
then the main problem it was requir
ed that the "man show enough money
for the round trip before the furlough
would be granted. All the loose cash
in the man's company had been given
him and when he met the secretary at
the Post Exchange some time later,
he lacked but twenty-one dollors of
the desired amount.. The secretary
decided to go before the audience in
the moving picture hall and make an
appeal for help. No sooner said then
v. fld thfi man to eo over to the Y.
M. C. A. and wait till he came back. 1
At the theatre there was a Dana ton
cert going on and it lacked about 20
minutes till time to start the show,
the concert stopped, the secretary seiz
ed the opportunity and getting up on
a chair, told in graphic words the tale
of sorrow that had fallen on one of
their comrades an appeal was made
for the $20 and the hats were passed,
when the change was counted there
was $42.25.
Oh you can't beat the generosity of
the soldiers. Loyal to the last cent in
an emergency, we are rlgthly proud
of them. And it is just such times as
this that the Association Secretary in
the Y. M. C A. War work, serves the
men of the army. We are glad to do
it.
... i i
rnnWiniwtiir mnrninc this SSCl DUt
.tfnl aoldier will be speeding East-
tn eomfort the bereaved wife
nd mother. We never know when
our turn will come, so we are glad we
can help out a comrade when he needs
help. Very truly yours,
CARL BINGMAN.
