as It stands it is a story reassuring

8ltk to Come Home First.
A great majority ot the soldiers
sailing to war passed through the port
of New York, and through this port,
whether well or disabled, will a great
majority return. The army port of
embarkation is also the port of
debarkation. Machinery built for swift
dispatch ot troops to- Europe reverses
Itself, as it were, and distributes
throughout America the soldiers whom
it aforetime gathered up and propelled
u cross the ocean.
But before tb 'companies and regi
ments of the well, the unhurt, are
started back from France all the
wounded or sick will have come ahead
of them. That Is the war depart
ment's policy, to bring borne the elck
and wounded first. They are coming
now and have been for some time, and
after the shortest possible sojourn In
debarkation hospitals are segregated
and paused along to a reconstruction
hospital as close, a, possible to their
homes, there to be dlschurged if their
condition warrants It, or to be treated
for special disabilities, or to complete
the period of convalescence.
To receive these Incapacitated sol
dlers; to make smooth their hard
path; to be prepared for their coming;
to make the distribution process swift.
sure and merciful; to see that every
thing Is provided for until the distant
destination is reached that is the co
operative Job of the medical depart
ment of the port of debarkation and
the American Red Cross. So this is
the story of how the Job is done. Offi
cially It is "the plan of handling the
sick returned from 'overseas service."
The New York port of embarkation
and debarkation really includes all
the coast from Baltimore to Canada,
but Its work is directed from Hoboken.
The surgeon of the ' port, who has
charge ot the reception and care of
Invalided troops. Is Col. James M. Ken
nedy, medical corps, TJ. S. A. - He is
the sanitary adviser of the command'
Ing general ot the port, William, V.
- Every Facility for Medical Care.
The following facts' were, obtained
from Colonel Kennedy and are official :
Sick . and wounded soldiers are
brought from Europe on army trans
ports having every hospital facility,
Each transport has normally a good'
sized hospital, which may be expanded
to accommodate any number of men,
Every patient baa more than enough
room. One of the great liners con
verted Into a troopship may have
carried 10,000 men to France, but as
a hospital ship it brings back only a
thousand or so. The medical attend
ance for the returning soldiers has
been uniformly satisfactory,
The' transport arrives oft quaran
tine. It is, boarded there by two medi
cal officers detailed for thla purpose
by the port surgeon. They ascertain
the number and classes of the sick,
the pier and hour at which the ship
will dock. One of them stays aboard,
arranging for debarkation,-
r.The other returns. to the quarantine
station and telephones his information
to the office of the surgeon of the port
In Hoboken.' The surgeon then' sends
a harbor boat with a party of medical
J officers and men' to the designated

Relative Are Notified.
Debarkation continues1 without in
terruption until- completed urfless It
extends Into the night. The patients
are transferred without delay to the
designated debarkation hospital, the
Red Cross attendants remaining on
the pier or trauxport and dispensing
refreshments as required. In the hos- 1
ital the sick or wounded men are
'iiKsilled rapidly, a to the nature of
s- Ir disabilities, the reconstruction
hospital to which they are to b sent
and their home address.
"Every courtesy," said Colonel Ken
nedy, "Is extended to ' parents and
other relatives. At the debarkation
hospital a deld director ot the Red
Cross gets the name and addreas of
the patient and Ills nearest relative.
He then writes a letter to the relative,
notifying him of the arrival and coa
lition of the patient and whether or
not It Is advisable for the relative to

Red Cross Furnishes Food.
"The Red Cross canteen service fur
nishes food and drink during the
transfer from hospital to train and
nntll the train leaves. So far as prac
ticable the patients are carried from
the port to the distant hospital on
especially fitted hospital trains which
have hospital beds, a mess kitchen, an
operating car, offices and other con
veniences. ' It the number of men la
too .great for a hospital train standard
Pullmans or Pullman ' sleepers are

"When the patients are transported
on these cars," said Colonel Kennedy,
"feeding them becomes a more com
plex problem than on hospital trains.
To meet this problem a special organi
sation of medical personnel Is In op
eration whose training is directed spe
cifically along those lines;
No patients are allowed to travel
without proper medical attendance

"Arrangement Is made with the Red

quarters of the Red Cross In New

stations, so each knows Just when the

"In this manner complete co-opera
tion Is provided between the medical
and the Red Cross services from the
time the patients leave the hospital at
the port until they are transferred to
the designated reconstruction hospital.
To guard, against unexpected delays
from accidents or other causes each
medical officer In charge of the train
detachment is required to have food
for at least one meal for all his pa
tients held on the tram In reserve.'

WHAT OUR DEFENDERS COST
At Home It Is $327 and Overseas $423
a Year for Each Man In the
Statistics have been collected by the

conservation, reclamation " and hard
ware and metals division of the quar
teiiuuster' corps. United States army,
to Indicate Just what It costs a year to
maintain a soldier overseas and In the
United States, i - ' '
These, according to the Army and
Navy Journal, show that the cost Is
$423.47 a year to equip and maintain a
soldier overseas and (327.78 to equip
and maintain one In the United States.
Subsistence, figured at 69 cpts a' day,
antounta' to $25X84 yearly "for each
rrion, overseas; figured at 01 cents ,1
day In the United States', if amounts
to-$180.80. the cost" ot the initial
equipment i or me soiaier ine nrsi year
In the United StRtes Is ?115.30, while
ma ct'ki 01 uiu- auuiuonni equipment
for the first year overseas Is $42.41. '
Thus It appears that If the soldier
going overseas did not take with him
a great deal of his equipment already
supplied in the United States the Con
trast between the cost' 'of 'equipping
and maintaining a soldier in this coun
try and abroad would be much more
marked. " Not only Is the amount of
equipment needed abroad greater than
that needed In this country, but the
statistics of the conservation and re
clamation division show that equip
ment and clothing overseas are subject
td much harder use, wear out more
quickly fand; are 'less' effectively i re
claimed than similar material, cloth
ing and equipment used In the United
States. The amount of reclamation of
each individual soldier's equipment In
this country Is $5,80 a year, whlle the
amount of reclamation of similar ma
