At a direct call last spring Miss
Buell resigned her position as teach-

She writes that everything there
is "war, liberty loan and Spanish in
fluents." In returning from the
Red Cross rooms one evening, "I
walked by the White House. It was
beautiful, but you can't stop and ad
mire, or some one will step out from
nowhere and politely tell you to
'move on.' "
Accepting an invitation to visit a
near by military camp, "I watched
the boys answer an 'all outside' call
and make formations, afterward
they formed in groups and sang.
They were having a religious meet
ing at the 'Y.' Everything was calm
but underneath ran a current ot ex
citement for they knew they were
starting across." The next day the
camp was filled with cavalry all
"strapping big fellows from the
west," and on her return saw a
train load of wounded soldiers re
turning to the Walter Reed military
hospital in Washington.
Waiting for a train at Richmond,
Vs., she visited the capitol "to see
what It looked like." She thinks
Oregon has something to be proud
of In comparison. She says Virginia
is a wonderful country, but cannot
compare with Oregon and the west,
and finds it amusing to hear people
say they have "heard such great
stories of the west that after the
war la over they are all planning a
trip to Chicago and Iowa."

pair of eye glasses and nothing

to the order given him at the en

took off all his clothes but disobeyed
the order Insofar as It applied to

throughout the examination.
One recruit, an Indian, stepped
along, showing such elasticity he
seemed built of steel springs, while
immediately behind him was a fat
recruit with knock knees, a picture
Some of the men look lean and
fit, others are gross and overweight.
Very often, especially among Cali

are quite fair, due to the protection
of their bathing suits.
