i Letters From and About Soldiers
The following interest!! Lr letter from j
Stt. Kent huemaker, of Fort 1'at.liy, !
was received last week by Jasjerj
Wii kham, K. of K. S., of Waueoma j
Lodge. Knitit.ts of rythia. who read)
it to the litlire :
I receivtd your card last nijrht and
was indeed tlad t le retnemlierei hv
youi-self tiinl mtnilers of Waueoma
Lodge. 1 am glad indeed ft hear that
the laxige is prosperine; anil training in
r!eintierhiti s.) fast. It makes me
i wish I could lie with you again at some
' of your meetings but in eight months
we have learned to almost forget all
we know ahout civil life and are living
in a little world all tiur own.
To those who do not know just
' where Fort Canby is, w ill say that it
is on a small peninsula on the Wash
1 ington side of the river, at the ex-
trenie mouth. The iieninsula is sur
I rounded on the east bv a bay. on the
; south by the Columbia river and on
i the west by the ocean. Those who nay
us a short visit declare it is a beauti
ful, but we w ho have been here
j for the last eight months declare there
i is nothing more fur us to see' and are
all anxious for a move.
I Spring and good weather finds us all
1 hard at work, getting ourselves harder
1 and harder, and at the same time
starting the green recruit on the road
: to a good soldier. When I say green,
j 1 mean some of the greenest young
! men that you can imagine, just from
i country farms in Wisconsin, North ln
! kota, Tennessee and Alabama. Some
; of them were never inside a school
; room and can neither read nor write.
. You can imagine that it is quite dilli
! cult to explain certain drill movements
, to them, but w e have learned to be
! patient and continue to hammer it into
i them from morning until night, day-
utter day, until the greenest of them
; pick it up.
Hesides drilling all day we are called
I out twice each week for night drill.
We fall out at the sound of call to
I arms and are required to stay out until
latter 11 o'clock, line night we drill
! on the search lights and night signal
I ing and the other we take a night
I march. The call to arms is first soiind
j ed by the bugler of the guard and then
j taken up by all buglers on the post.
I It has more pep than any other call in
; the army, and w hen sounded on the
j bat tie field I should think it would set
a man's blood to running so that he
I would at once w ant to go over the top.
With all our work wehave certain
; pleasures. Last Sunday the four com
i panys of the post. TZ men each, went
out to assist the Ketl I ross ot llwaco
gather moss. This moss is to be sub
stituted for absorbent cotton. It is
found on the low, marshy lands, and
completely covers the ground and ex
tends to a depth of six to feet. It
is said tq be capable of absorbing L'U
tunes its weight of water, and, it is
claimed, will be used extensively for
bandages. We took our lunch, which
was set veil by our kitchen force, and
after lunch had a base ball game.
The citizens of the little town of ll
waco have been very nice to the sol
diers and we are always ready to give
them a hand on any occasion.
On this Sunday Sgt. Foiist and 1
were invited to take an auto ride down
the beach, tor 'M miles the beach is
just as level as a lloor and all the way
from 1,0(10 to ii.OiHI yanls wide, ami a
better drive 1 never saw. Of course,
the air at this time of the year, near
the water, is quite cool. On our ride
we saw a whale that had been washed
on the beach by the tide. It measured
2."i feet in length and was indeed quite
a sight.
We stopped on our way and dug
some clams. This, to one who has
never tried it, is some job. We have
caught numerous crabs, but that was
the tirst clams 1 ever dug or ever saw
!dug, and it was an interesting exped
ience for me. We returned to the home
j of our friends and it wasn't long be
i fore the Mrs. invited us to be seated
j at her table, and before us was a
! steaming clam chowder. Our appetites
i had been sharpened by the hike, the
moss gathering, the light lunch, and
auto ride, etc., so 1 doubt whether you
lean appreciate my meaning when I say
I that we enioved that meal. While
we get plcntv to eat it is not like that
served on a family table, so if you
want to see somebody enjoy something
just invite a soldier out for dinner. 1
am fortunate enough to be invited out
for dinner about once each week, and
believe me, 1 never refuse an invita
tion. Since the company was called out
there have been about 200 men trans
ferred out. New ones are, of course,
I transferred m to take their places.
! F.ach time they take the oldest men.
j It seems that 1 am the goat, as 1 am
j one of three left in the company that
i were mustered in with the company on
j August 10, litlo. Our ollicers change
1 about every month, so that the keeping
of the records of the men as they come
, and go is left to me, and with the red
tape ot the army, it is some job to
keep them all straight.
1'ersonally, 1 get mighty lonesome at
times, especially when a bunch of old
men and my best friends, are trans
ferred out of the company. Hesides
attending drills outside I do most of
the olliee work so that. I am always
busy, otherwise I don't know how 1
would stand it here.
Our prospects for getting across look
better now than ever before. W e hear
that all the old men will soon be trans
ferred to a battery which will at once
leave for over seas. Kvery man, in
eluding the national army men, is anx
ious to show the hun, the sun of a gun,
w hat the Yankee boys can do.
I received a receipt from the Grand
Lodge for my dues for the period of
the war. 1 hat, together wiht the way
! the people are subscribing for the
Third Liberty loan bonds, certainly
' make the soldiers feel that the people
j at home are behind them. We feel
j that whatever becomes of us we will
I be taken care of, and taken care of
right. The government is doing won
derfully well in supplying us with
' clothing, and although we only get ,12
cents per day per man for our mess,
we are eating plenty good enough, and
we feel that if the people at home will
continue to stand behind the soldiers
there will be no question as to the
outcome of this war. We all hope to
see herlin before it is over. We would
sure hate to be kept here for the dura
tion of the war.

The January number of The Spiker
published somewhere in France bv the
lSth enginers, railway, V. S. A., a
copy of which has just been received
here by Mrs. 11. V. Davidson, is one of
the most interesting and entertaining
of soldier publications that has been
received in Hood River. Entitled,
"The I'av is at Hand," the January
number's leading editorial is as fol
lows :
"The loss of a firm national character
or the dissolution of a nation's honor
is the inevitable prelude to her de
struction. This is the verdict of ti,(KK)
years of recorded history.
"When Germany officially declared
her solemn treaty obligations to be
'scraps of paper, ' she prostituted her
member that the world uoes not go
backward and that in this great
world ci aring house all bad paper goes
in the.dnrixrd.
"Junkerdom has damned the German
people even to the third generation
and vandalism has desolated the once
scientific !! classic fields.
"The day is at hat-il w hen the imin ri
al German government mur-t Imw its
head in shame, beat its breast in hu
mility and and murmur the ancient
supplication of forgiveness, Wit I'ulpa
Mea I'ulpa Mea Maxa I'ulpa.'
"The treaty of peace should lie
signed at Verdun and the peace com
missioners of the allies, as they tread
above the dead who died for liberty,
should make it plain to the representa
tives of the so called imjierial German
ople that millions untmrn are dedi
cated to die as those men died, or live
like free men- free.
"I'ost-bellum days must ditTer from
ante-bellum days. When the German
comes to our shores, whether it be to
break bread under our roof tree, or to
barter, there shall be no duplicity or
double dealing.
"Like liante's dicer, we lingered
sorrowfully behind 'I'onning o'er the
throws and learning by our grief."
In a communication in The Spiker
from I'apt. Kenneth 1). Hauser, com
manding otticer of Go. F, composed of
Portland and Oregon boys, tive of
whom ate from llood River, it is an
nounced that the total of tive deaths in
the engineers' regiment have been
sutfered entirely by lo. F. I'apt.
Hauser writes :
"While we are at loss to undertsand
why these calamities should be visited
on us, let us resolve that they shall
only serve to cement the rest of us
closer together aud build up our organ
ization to withstand any future shocks
we may be subjected to. May it also
serve as a guide for our action in the
future, so that the unworthy things we
may be held accountable for should
some similar disaster abruptly con
front any of us, be reduced to a mini
mum. "If we will consecrate our future
standards of living and actions to their
memories, then the five wonderful
boys who gave their lives tor their
country - the Go. F honor roll, Mercer,
Gramos. Hancock. Sapue and Barrett
- w iil not have died in vain."
The soldier paper mentions the Cop
per boys, John and Walter, of this city.
The following letter whs recently re
ceived by Sam W. Stark from Glen
Lenz, son of Mr. and Mrs. Jake I.enz,
who is now at Camp Morrison, V'a., a
member of the 12th Halloon Co. :
1 received your most welcome letter
last evening and will endeavor to tell
you what I ani doing and where. 1 am
in the isolated hosiptal now with the
mumps. We arrived here February 2f,
and God knows when we will get out of
here. When we arrived here we were
quarantined for the scarlet fever, and
then we got out and believe me 1 have
been on the go day and night ever
since. Hut now 1 am in the hospital,
so 1 have a few minutes to spare to
myself. 1 have been putting it olf to
write you and let you know where 1
was. I wish to thank you for the let
ter of recommendation you sent me. 1
didn't get to see it at Omaha, as my
company commander wouldn't let me
out. He said he wanted me with him,
as a mechanic and driver, and as the
company was "out-going" he wanted
me to stay. He said would get a
chance to get into the aero machines
after we crossed. 1 am now a first
class chauffeur and get !f"d, and that
isn't so bad. It is not just the work 1
want. I want to get into the aeroplane
1 have been so busy here studying
artillery, French, motors, infantry
drill first aid etc. that 1 have hardly
gotten a chance to write Jhome. 1 was
sorry JthalI couldn't get intojthe motor
mechanics reserve. Hut 1 am pretty
well satisfied now for my company's
class at Washington 1. C. as the best
balloon company in the service and all
my officers are "strong" for me.
We are six miles from Newport
News at an aviation concentration
camp and plenty ot work to he done, as
it is a new camp. Several of the llood
River boys are at Fortress Monroe but
I haven't been over there. Haven't
been outside the post yet. At the first
opening l am going over to see mem.
Lieut. Hrosius is there studying artil
lery and Hill McGuire is at Norfolk in
the navy aero school as an instructor.
1 would like to see the boys again but
I don't know whether 1 can get a
You said that everything was green
there. Gee! how I would like to see
old Oregon again. Hut 1 can't think
of that until old Kaiser Hill is in hell
or so other tropical place. 1 am cer
tamly glad at the way Oregon is going
in for Liberty bonds. She sure has
done her part in men and money and
I am proud that I am an Oregonian,
for there is no place like the west.
They ure sure having some tight over
there now, but 1 think the allies will
soon show llutch Hill where to head in.
The Germans have sure lost a bunch
of men.
I don't know John Wynn, but I have
heard of him at Hood River. I wish
I had a Hood River boy with me it
would make it better for lioth of us.
Well 1 am out of news for today, but
1 w ill write you more in the near future.
"We can't say too much in praise of
the Y. M. C. A., writes Stanley J.
Shore, formerly agent of the Mount
llood R. li. Co., who left recently for
Camp Lewis, where he is now a mem
ber of a casual company, "and the
work they are doing in the army.
There are at least 10 or a dozen huts
here and each one has an entertainment
every night. The huts are always
crowded and the boys have a hne time.
The workers do all they can to keep up
the boys' spirits, and those who go to
the huts do not find much time to asso
ciate with old man 'Gloom.'
"I can't tell much about, the camp,
as I have been in quarantine, Saturday
having been the first day 1 was out.
Ashley Wilson, my brother-in-law, was
here from Sn Francisco, and i was

in the field hospital, and John Schiller,
who was first in the same brigade with
me but who has since been transferred
to the light artillery. I also, saw
Lieut. Pineo, who, even after his stay
in the hospital, has the look of a fight
ing American soldier.
"The officers are having a busy time
taking care of the newly arrived re-
icruits. They are coming so fast that
they are having their hands full."
