"Doughboys" Are American
Soldiers, Despite Position

"A 'doughboy,' says Stars and

"is an American soldier, any Ameri American
can American soldier, Infantryman, artilleryman
' medical department, signal corps
sharps, officers and men alike, all are
called doughboys. Our cartoonist is
one, so Is General Pershing."
The term "doughboys" dates back
to the Civil war when army wit was
aroused by large globular brass but buttons
tons buttons on Infantry uniforms. Somebody
(he must have been a sailor) dubbed
the buttons "doughboys" because they
reminded him of the boiled dumplings
of raised dough served in ships' messes
and known ta all sailors as doughboys.
Originally it referred only to an en
listed Infantryman, but the A. E. F.
applies It to all branches and all
grades of the service.

Few among those who demand that
the former emperor of Germany shall
be tried for the murder of the men,
women and children done to death on
land and sea by German soldiers, act acting
ing acting under his orders in defiance of the
laws of war and civilization, have
visualized the scene or even consid considered
ered considered where the trial should take
place. The Hon. Stephen Coleridge, a
son of the late Chief Justice Cole Coleridge,
ridge, Coleridge, has done both. In a very re remarkable
markable remarkable sketch in the New York
Tribune, entitled "The State Trial of
William Hohenzollern A Forecast,"
he stages the trial in Westminster
Hall upon-, the very spot where where-Charles
Charles where-Charles Stewart stood to answer to
the charge of levying war upon Par Parliament,
liament, Parliament, and from which he went out
the solitary and forlorn champion of
a lost cause," condemned: to aeatn.
Mr. Coleridge in this dramatic
sketch nuts into the -mouth of tht
attorney-general on the last day of
the trial of William Hohenzollern a
noble1 passage of oratory contrasting
the Stewart king with the latest
claimant of divine right. Charles
"fought with honor as a soldier
should, and died as only a gallant
gentleman can. No cruelty stained
his banners, no baseness tarnished
his sword" .... "But he that was
once emperor in Germany and king
of Prussia, and who now stands here
bef oro you, bears no resemblance to
that great gentleman, King Charles,
save that he has worn a crown. When
we recall the awful and unnumbered
horrors with which he has covered
this globe we can well doubt whethei
all history can furnish a parallel to
him. Here he stands, a claimant of
his divine right as a king, to be an
swerable for his actions and his man
dates only to God and his conscience."
The ; sixteen law lords and judges
who constitute the court set aside the
former, emperor's claim tha.t thej
have no authority to pass upon his
alleged crimes, and receive in silence
his declaration that "your robes and
ermine are your only titles to author authority,
ity, authority, and though your wigs may impart
to you a gravity of appearance they
cannot confer upon you even wisdom
and understanding, much less the
right to judge a king."
The former emperor is found guilty
of murder, and the lord chancellor in
passing sentence of death thus de
scribes the crimes for which sentence

The Mother's Christmas Gift
It never comes to Christmas but I
think about the times
We used to save our pennies and our
nickles and our dimes.
And we bunched them all together,
even little baby brother,
Put in something for the present that
we always gave to mother.
We began to talk about it very early
Twas a very serious matter to us
children, I remember,
And we used to whisper nightly our
suggestions to each other,
For by nothing cheap and tawdry
could we show our love for
Her's must be a gift of beauty, fit to
symbolize her ways;
It must represent the sweetness and
the love that marked her days.
It must be the best our money, all
combined had power to buy,
And be something that she longed
for; nothing else would satisfy.
Then it mattered not the token, once
the purchase had been made.
It was smuggled home and hidden and
with other treasures laid,
And we placed our present proudly in
her lap on Christmas day, -And
we smothered her with kisses
and we laughed her tears
