NEW YORK HOTELS CUT
RATES FOR OFFICERS.
More than sixty of Now York's
largest hotels have agreed to house
officers of the Army and Navy at re
duced rntea. When It was reported
to the War Cnmp Community Service
that officers on leave In the city were
having difficulty in obtaining accom
modations at reasonable rates the or
ganization began a ten-day canvass,
with the result that the hotels now In
line will give a fifty per cent, reduc
tion on one ner centof their room, ca
pacity from Monday to Friday, Inclu
sive, and on Saturday and Sunday will
allow the same reduction on two per
cent of the capacity. This arrange
ment provides two hundred and fifty
rooms for the five days and fire hun
dred for Saturdays and Sundays.
In addition to this the New York
War Camp Community Service baa
more thou two thousand beds availa
ble for enlisted men, the nsual rates
being twenty-five cents for ft bed and
bath, with an added charge of from
ten to tMrty cents for breakfast,
The War Camp Community Service seems to have
justified itself abundantly. No doubt some mistakes
have been made, here and there, but tha enterprise as
a whole has been, and is, beneficent. It sends the men
away with a feelinjr that the country is solidly behind
them. Local cordiality and the touch of personal,
human interest is of importance.
The critics who think that the boys are being
"pampered" haven't much to go on. Certainly the
men now at the front show no signs of being soft. One
fancies that the Doche finds them anything but effete,
pampered darlings. And the aspect of the average
youth in uniform, as visibly presented to the naked eye,
does not suggest that he has been rendered mushy by
any little courtesies and entertainment that may have
come his way.
The statement ef Corporal Guy Smith, one of
Pershing's men, is conclusive as to Avhat the boys
themselves think of it. Said he :
"Until I came back to America and saw the won
ders which War Cr.mp Community Service had accom
plished in making right the attitude of the town for
the soldier and the mental attitude of the soldier
toward the town, I never would have believed it pos
sible that so much could have been clone. In my
opinion there is nothing so directly affecting the
morale of the troops as the community work of the
War and Navy Departments shown in their Community
Service, and when I go back on the other side I am
going to, ask permission to tour the camps and tell the
men over there how America is behind them."
That seems to cover the case pretty conclusive
ly. From the New York Evening Sun.
TO REBUILD WOUNDED
MEN AT FT. SNELUM8
War Camp Community Service
Will Play a Large Part in
Since the nnnonncempnt by tlie War
Department that Fort Snelllng, In Miu
nesota, was to be vacated by troops,
plain were nuulo to turn the training
station Into a reconstruction camp
where wounded soldiers whose homes
are In the Noitlnv.est Will be eared for
and fitted for their return to civil life.
In the proposed change th'e War'
Camp Community Service Is to play'
a large part, although the camp Itself
will, fit course, be In charge of army
officers and conducted along strictly
military lines. The Community Or
ganizer has already been called upon
to assist In plans for the men. A
more Ideal spot for reconstruction
work than Fort Snelllng can hardly be
imagined. It Is just tho place for men
to recover from wounds and from shell
shock, a process that ofton takes
months. - It Is probable thnt men who
have lost legs will be fitted with arti
ficial limbs here as a part of the work.
All of the men received at tho fort
must be of the "uble to travel" class,
as the long journey from the Atlantic
coast would prohibit the treatment of
more serious cases there.
Nearly two battalions of United
States guards are now at the fort.
These men wllj remain on guard duty
after the establishment of the recon
struction work, It Is believed, and the
War Camp Community Service Or
ganizer and assistants intend to stay
on the ground and make ready In ev
ery way possible for tho new demands.

JUST TO GET A ROOM.

Soldiers nnd Sailors' Club," writes De
Witt C. Reed, community organizer for
New Roehclle, N. Y., "we did not have
the use of the' upper two dormitory
floors, nnd a few young civilians stay
ed in the building. Then we took over
the entire building, One about eight
een, who had a room nnd habitually
viewed the boys In klinkl and blue in
their daily recreations In the club, sur
rendered his key and departed very
reluctantly. Greatly surprised were
we when he reappeared two evenings
later decked out In a sailor suit and
beaming with joy.
" 'Give me a room,' said he, 'and my
old room at that, If you will, for I
can't keep away. I made up my mind
I bad to be In this club or bust, so I
went and Joined the Navy. Now I can
get a room just like any other sailors,
can't I?' "
Conscience Money Her Bit.
The last word la conscience money
has been received at the War Camp
Community Service headquarters in
Minrieajiolls. Directly after, a boxing
benefit recently the following notewus
received from a womun whose address
located her across the street from the
boxing site :
"Kind Sir This dollar is for my
,gallery seat at your Army and Navy

. "This Illustrates the quickening of
the public conscience through these
war days," remarked the Minneapolis
Community Organizer. "There's a wo
man who wants to do her bit. Wonder
if we'll collect from the other roofs in
the neighborhood They were all full."

Man in Khaki Put the Mar
seillaise Into His Hearers'
In the town of Doming, N. M., there
is a Soldiers' Community Club, con
ducted by the War Camp-Community
Service. Llko every other club for
the enlisted men in towns near a camp
this one Is used to unusual demands
xipon its hospitality, but, like the oth
ers also, it is never fazed by any de
mand. This time it was eight o'clock
in the morning, and the calling squad
contained a dozen or more men In uni
"We want to hear a feller sing,"
explained the leader as the others
crowded in. The organizer explained
hastily that they had a lot of good
singers who had. been up .late the
night before entertaining a lot of sol
"It's all right, boss. You don't get
us yet. We don't need any singer
'cause we've got hira with us fight
here. That's the guy there." 1 The
speaker pointed to a lmsky lad with
a satisfied and confident grin on his
face. "lie's been boasting he's a won
der with his voice and we want to see
him do It." -
The men gathered in a circle around
the singer, who had been born In a
small town in France and was now a
naturalized American. The bnbble
censed when he lifted his voice.
In rich, resonant, powerful tones he
sang the words of the French natlonul
song, "La Marseillaise." His strong,
full notes seemed to shake the very
rafters and to seek out every nook and
corner In the building. Willi head
erect and eyes aflame, his hands at
his sides, in true soldierly fashion, he
breathed forth the words of life and
love and liberty for France.
Every man in the crowd stood at
attention and nil eyes were on the
singer. His words seemed to carry
inspiration Into the hearts of his hear
ers. When he reached the great cli
max of the final linos and his last note
died away, the men made a unanimous
rush, pounded him on the back, and
shook him fervently by tho hand.
"You're all right 1" "We're for you !"
"Good I" "FlneAvork, old scout!" was
the gist of their musical criticism.
Then they trooped out of the building,
thanking the attendant for tho per
mission to "see lilin do It."
"Fall in! Column right by squads I
March!" shouted the corporal who
had been tho first to bang on the front
door. ., They wore off. Down the
street wlth heads erect and eyes glis
tening with pride. The nion had been
detailed to do some special work in
Demlng, and had stopped at the Sol
diers' Community Clid) to hear their
comrade sing. They knew that War
Camp Community Service is alvvuys
ready and willing to ssnre.
ONE FATHER'S VIEWPOINT.
The value of War Camp Community
Service Is well Illustrated by one or
ganizer, who said recently : i
"A business man lins said to me: 'I
enlisted In the Navy during the Kpnn-Ish-American
war. I remember spend
ing my last quarter once to get ashore.
When I got there the only places that
had a welcome for uie were the saloon
and bawdy house.
" 'Now you Community Bervlce peo
ple have changed nil that sort of thing.
My boy is In France. They are tak
ing caro of him over there. I want
you to take care of these other boys
over here. I nm going to support yon
no mutter whether your cnutecn hurts
my business or not. You are taking
enre of the hoys, and that Is whut I am
interested In,' " iml

Past From His Clothes in

"You can't Judge a soldier by his
uniform these days," said J. B. Zerbe,
the Cleveland coal operator, in New
York recently. "Cot Myron T. Iler
rlck and I wore playing golf the other
afternoon and on our return to the
club house we overheard two ma
rinesenlisted men, mind you talk
ing about the game.
"For fun Col. Horrlck asked them
If they would liko to play, but both
replied that they would but they ad
no clubs. 'I'll lend you mine,' prompt
ly offered Col. Herrick, adding tbut
I would probnbly be glad to do like
wise. So we took the two sea-soldiers
Into the club house, fitted them out In
golf togs, gave them our sticks and
told them to enjoy themselves.
"Just ns they were leaving the club
house one turned to Col. Herrick and
said ; 'I don't supposo you get to Cll-
cngo very often, but' If you do. come
out that way I'd be glad to give you
a card to,the Midlothian Club.' This
brought about an exchange of cards
and it developed that this marine was
one of the wealthiest young men In
the Middle West and an officer of the
Midlothian Club, one of the most ex
clusive clubs around Chicago."
