(By W. M. Letts)
I saw the spires of Oxford
As I was passing by.
The gray spires of Oxford
Against a peari gray sky.
My heart was with the Oxford men
Who went abroad to die.
The years go fast in Oxford,
The golden years and gay
The hoary colleges look down
On careless boys at play.
But when the bugles sounded war
They put their games away.
They left the peaceful river,
The cricket field, the quad.
The shaven lawns of Oxford
To seek a bloody sod—
They gave their merry youth away
, For country and for God.
God rest you, happy gentlemen
Who laid your - good lives down.
Who took the khaki and the gun
Instead of cap and gown
God bring you to a fairer place
Than even Oxford town.

CHEWING GUN ISSUE.
Orders have just been placed by the
Quartermaster Corps for 2,300,000 pack
ages of chewing gum for the Army. It
has been found that on long marches
and where the troops are unable to
get sufficient water chewing gum is
very effective in relieving thirst.
Recently the commanding officer of
a regiment of Field Artillery, when
embarking for overseas service, stated
that 250 pounds of chewing gum would
save hundreds of gallons of water
when most needed.
