I amin somewlrat of a quandry and
want to ask your advice, I am keep
ing company with a young lady in Sev-
ersville and she seems to think a
whole lot of me. As I am somewhat
bashful and would not like to do any
thing to offend her, I have never tried
to kiss her. Do you think she would
be offended if I tried?
You certainly are in an ’awful stew.
But there is hope tor you, Dear Boy,
because all the girls I know in Severs-
vUle seem to like to be kissed.
TAKE A CHANCE.
Last week my Buddy and I went up
to Greensboro and we met two swell
Janes, up there. The one I was with

Girl and I would like to know how to
break her off of the habit, for it is
too bad that she should have such a
distasteful habit. Awaiting your reply
I am Very truly yours,
She must be a swell Jane if she
chews snuff. About breaking her of
the habit, I might suggest giving
her a chew of Old Navy cut, or you
might steal her snuff when she isn’t
looking. The former might make her
sick, and the latter might change
her opinion of you, but it you like her
enough to try and reform her, take a

HAS WORKED WELL
LABOR OF HARRY HER2FIELD
Many of the good results accru
ing to the men undergoing training
in the Reconstruction department are
due in nb small measure to the in
valuable work being performed by
Harry Herzfeld, Y. M. C. A. physical
Mr. Herzfeld came to Camp Greene
last may from Hartford, Conn. When
he first arrived in Camp his assign
ment was that of physical director in
“Y” building No. 105. He spent the
greater part of them late spring and
early summer there but on the de
parture of the two divisions of regu-
alr troops from Camp he was trans
ferred to the “Y” building at the Base
Mr. Herzfeld is a graduate of the
Posse School of Gymnastics (.Bos
ton:) the School of Physical Train
ing Chattaqua, N. Y.’ and the Chalif
Normal School of Dancing, New York.
In his work at the Reconstruction
Dept., here in the Base Hospital he
has introduced new methods of in
struction in circle ball passing, zig
zag ball passing, dogde passing, bask
et ball relays, volley ball relays, in
door baseball and Swedish gymnas
tics. The course of movements are
graded day by day, varying in accord
with the capacity of individual pa
tients to take the exercises.
We understand Mr. Herzfelds stay
amongst us is to terminate about the
middle of September. He intends re
turning to Hartford Conn., to take up
Public School work and re-organize
his classes in aesthetic dancing—both
of which pursuits he was engaged in
before joining the ranks of the Y. M.
The Stalf of the Reconstruction
Dept., express their regrets at his de
parture from our midst and wish him
further success in his choosen line of

“Prom this place whither do we go?”
The Crown Prince softly spoke.
His father answered, “I don’t know.
But I can smell the smoke.
I know the climate will be hot
Where we shall reach the goal,
And there will be no shady spot
Where I can Me extol.
“The ice trust hasn’t got a friend
Where you and I shall stop.
A cooling drink we cannot blend.
Or hear a wine cork pop,
But, though to be the Lord of All
I failed, and must atone.
I’m plotting now Old Satan’s fall.
For I have earned his throne.”
