JOY OF GOOD FELLOWSHIP.

War Camp Community Service, He
Says, la "the Most Smashing Art
gument That the Nation It .
Behind Her Sons."
Gratitude Is the universal regard of
War Camp Community Service given
by the enlisted men for whom It
Bnt rarely Ig this gratitude so
feelingly expressed as In the follow
ing letter written by Lieut Dempster,
O. Murphy, Company O, 331st Battal
ion, U. S., Taub Corps, at Camp Colt,
Pa., to Charles W. Dawson, field rep-
resentanve, w. o. . a.: i
civilian and I thought: ..
The War Camp Community Service la
a good ana necessary
thing.' I write you now a soldier, au the soim i aa,i tne pleasure this af
officer, it Is true, but I began an en- tcrnoon of breaking the peace news to
listed mnn and for months I lived and many officers and men of the British
breathed and thought and cursed and force beneath a big train shed at Mihins
prayed as an enlisted man. Tonight, station. t'
then, I -have a different viewpoint a I It wag apparent from what was heard
more comprehensive viewpoint than I on all sides, when word of the latest
I had as the youth who saluted you In j
farewell last Saturday before Christ-
anas. And tonight I say: 'The War
Camp Community Service Is the most
ttmnshlnff and convincing argument
thu8 far ,gCi0Sed that the Nation Is
belllnd her gong to the war,.
T naye known tne lsolftted feenng
that goes hand and hand with the prt-
vate's uniform, and I have felt the
'well, people won't understand If I go
to this party, or to that theater, or to
the other dance, in canvas leggings.' I
have known these things but, oh,
Charlie, I have known also the great
Joy that comes to a man of this sort
when sweet, gracious women throw
open their homes to him, ask him to
Bit and break bread with them and,
With their men, extend to him the de
cent hand of good fellowship.
"In Atlanta I was a sergeant I
knew not one person in that city.
Without ever coming into direct con
tact with a War Camp Community
Service worker I came Into dally touch
with their work I rubbed elbows with
their personalities. I relaxed and
wrote letters home in the charming
lub operated by the Koturlans under
upervision of the War Camp Com
munity Service. I met worth while
people of Atlanta there In an easy
way foe it Is easy far one, t& UJfSt
another on common ground! At their
dances I saw only the highest type of
American womanhood. At church I
was lnavariably asked home to dinner
by some one. Every other soldier with
whom I .talked reported the same ex
perience. I asked my nostess on each
occasion the reason for this perfect
hospitality and usually came the an
swer: 'The War Camp Community
Service workers keep after us through
the papers and in many other ways.
They are educating us to the fact that
you soldiers are not more nor less

BANKER, WAITER, COOK
IN WAR'S MELTING POT.
Speaking of melting pots that have
nothing to do with the. weather, a
banker, a cook and a waiter recently
sat on one bench In the St. Paul
(Minn.) House of the War Camp Com
munity Service. Before they donned
uniforms they had all been at the Wal
dorf Astoria Hotel In New York simul
taneously the banker at the table
signirjg the check, the waiter back of
his chair and the cook concocting the
Italians, Bohemians, Jews, Syrians,
Greeks and many other nationalities
meet and mingle at this clubhouse.
Often when their friends and-families
join them the different groups chatter
away In their native tongues, making
a modern Babel that Is mighty Inter
esting to the chance caller. Yet they
aTe all Americans in spirit as in uni
form, and bringing theui together is
exactly what the Commissions on
Training Camp Activities asked War
Camp Community Service to do.
