627,973,980. ?7,-627,973,980. Huge war expenses and loans to

So far the nation has borne the
financial burdens of the war well,
says Secretary McAdoo, owing to

Just feel of his arm."
"Well," said Uncle Dan, feeling,
"That's a mighty good arm!"
"Now, boys," said Uncle Dan, "what
do yon want to talk about?"
"Well," said Jimmie, "I was down to

boys came home from the Mexican

say that the training and discipline
the boys had had was exactly what
every boy in the country ought to
have, and that now these boys, could
get a better job at higher' pay than
they could have had. before. Do you
think that's so, Uncle Dan?"
Uncle Dan replied: VI have a
friend who employs hundreds of young
men. He always gives boys having
had military training the preference;
he says it pays to do so. He finds
they are more alert, more prompt,
more courteous; they know how to
carry out orders; they are quicker to
think and to act than those without
training. He said from his experience
he believed that six or eight months
of Intensive military training would
add at least 20 per cent to a man's

The bag was brought Uncle Dan,

here they are. They tell their own

one. The young man, before training,
has a discouraged look; he has seen
but little of the world. There was
very little in his surroundings to bring

and Uncle Sam took him in charge,
life for him took on a new meaning.
He saw a chance to do something and

when he joined the army. This may
be one of the extreme cases," said
Uncle Dan. "I can tell you, though,
that war or no ear, no one thing will
do the young men of this nation so
much good in so short a time as a few
months of' intensive military training.
It fits, a man to fight his own life bat battles

"Nearly every civilized country gives

untrained troops is nearly three times

A LETTER FROM MRS. DYALL
Following is a letter from Mrs.
Robert Bruce Dyall, sister of Ser Sergeant
geant Sergeant James Leitner, who died at
Camp Wheeler hospital week before
Editor Star: I cannot understand
why any members of Co.. A should j
'eel aggrieved at that article "Neg "Neg-ected,"
ected," "Neg-ected," for no word was spoken
against them In truth I, Sergeant
Leitner's sister, have deeply felt and
highly appreciated the kindness
shown by them to him and to me.
Had it not been for C. L. Coventry,
who wrote of my brother having
measles, and Sergeant Altman, who
wired my father of his serious condi
tion, no doubt I would not have had
the chance to have seen him before
When I reached the base hospital
early that bleak Friday morning I
found-my brother delirious and with
insufficient covering. I soon obtained
two more blankets, but those with him
afterward knew he had none too much
cover then. The second complaint is,
he had no poultices, adhesive plasters
or anything of the kind on him. Any Anyone
one Anyone knows that poultices of some kind
are applied to pneumonia cases. Let
those in ddubt ask their family phy physician.
sician. physician. That ward of only two patients
Capt. Drake speaks of was not pro provided
vided provided until I arrived and asked for it.
Even then it was not granted immed
iately. I asked permission to put hot
Vick's pneumonia salve poultices on
him and that was granted but he wak
too near death's door for it to help.
The third harmful thing was, there
was to be some person of importance
to visit the hospital that day, and the
hospital must be made sanitary im
mediately. The orderlies (I presume)
were ordered with hammers to knock
out the window sashes so they could
be carried out and washed. Frankly,
I could see very little improvement
when they were brought back. When
that bitter cold wind rushed iri on the
heads of those sick boys, J saw many
of them snuggle under their 'covers
At the same time the floor was being
washed. Fancy the results. I saw
at once the ill effect on my brother,
from the noise and confusion, for his
fever apparently was higher and he
would start up in bed and began to
rave harder than ever. I remon
stratedto those by my window, but
to no avail.
About the time they completed
their cleaning up the doctor decided
to remove my brother to the ward
of two patients. When his cot was
rolled to the vdoor they decided that
that room must also be made sani
tary, regardless of danger to life, and
the same noises must be gone over,
He never appeared better after that.
Many and many the time in his
delirium did he throw the cover half
off and I would soothe him and place
the cover back over him. Was that
done before I was there ? From all
reports, not often.
Now'who I blame for the aforesaid
conditions is whoever could have or
dered things differently.
