PARIS, July 20. There never
was such, an army of letter
writers as the American Ei-
peditlonary Force in France!
If the thing keeps up, and it bids
fair not only to continue, but to
increase, wo sball have to add
writer's cramp to the list of hor
rors of war, for our soldiers have
been bitten by the writing microbe;
they can no more resist the sight
of pen and paper than a hungry
hobo can result an apple pie cool
ing, in a farmhouse window.
Next to goOrng a letter from
home, which Is the greatest and
most exhilarating Indoor pastime
In France, the soldier enjoys writ
ing to the folks and telling them
all about it for page upon page.
He is seeing a heap of new things
and meeting with a heap of new
experiences, which boll around in
side him and make hlra mighty un
comfortable, until he can unburden
them to pa and ma and Jenny
Jones, back la Keokuk. He's just
naturally got to put it down in
black and white. ,
STATIONERY A PROBLEM
On of the blggeet jobs over here
Is furnishing him writing paper and
envelopes. 8ttlonory stores are
not on every corner cf the
trenches, nor even back at base
fcamps, and if they were the Amex
ooys would strip them bare during
the first ten minutes of the morn
Ing. So the Y. M. C. A. has tackled
the Job of supplying the writing
materials and it has bitten off a
man's size mouthful.
Your soldier wants sweets and
he wants tobacco and he wants
canned peaches and cookies; but
when a truck load of supplies
crawls up a camouflaged road under
cover of darkness and stops before
a Y. M. C. A. hut, the first run is
on writing paper and envelopes.
They are given to the soldier free
of charge, but he would use just as
much of them If he had to pay for
them at war prices.
SOLDIER EAGER TO WRITE
"Hear the truck came up to
night." aays a buck private In a
canteen that has been under con
stant shell lire and gas attacks for
weeks. "Fetch any wrltln' paperr
"Wads of it Go to it!"
The snldtnr mulroa o .nK
- - c. u u iur a
handful and then looks over the
stock. He arms himself with a
package of cigarettes, a bale of
eookies and a can of peaches, and
crowds himself iuto a space at the
rickety table. There he eats and
settles himself to composition.
There are several soldiers to
France several! All of them
write, which means considerable
when yon check up.
"Lemme see. I got to write Ma
nd Annt Loo and Nell and Bill
Wilkes to-night," says the soldier,
man, and he goes to it with vtm.
and enthusiasm. When yon stop
to figure that some officer In hi
company must read all those let
ters and censor them, it looks as
though that officer were going to
nave 10 consult an oculist before
this war ends.
TON8 AND TONS OF PAPER j
During the next year the Y. H.
C. A. estimates it will be require
to give to the soldiers from 7,000
000 to 10,600,000 sheets of p&petj
per month, and from S.500,000 tw
S,000,(HM envelopes.' One ordec
was recently placed for 600,00
envelopes and 180 tons of writings
paper, which runs 250,000 sheet'
to the ton. ,
This Test quantity of paoer t
acquired at a great expense ofl
tinae and labor, and with the uH

the Y. M. C. A,
This means that in Y. M. C.
huts alone our soldiers during the
next year will write home to the
folks on 120,000,000 sheets of paper
and 60,000,000 envelopes. The total
weight of paper and envelopes will
be 720 tons. Seven hundred and
twenty tons of comfort and news
for the folks back home.
