GREAT CHAIN OF DEPARTMENT STORES

Former Smithtield Young Man Who
Moved To Montana Now In Train
ing at American Lake, State of
As most all of the large army train
ing camps are located in the South,
probably you folks have not heard
much about Camp Lewis, American
Lake, Washington. This camp is lo
cated 17 miles south of Tacoma, and
57 miles southwest of Seattle. The
camp was just planned to accommo
date 40,000 soldiers, but has been en
larged so it will now accommodate
about t>0,000 and there are about 30,
000 here now. The balance will arrive
within the next month.
All drafted men from Califor
nia, >\ Sington, Idaho and Montana
will be sent to this camp, and part
those from Utah, Wyoming and Ne
vada. All these being the Far West
ern States, about half of the men
from the Plains and Cattle Ranches,
generally known as Cow Boys, and
are a wild bunch, but all true to the
Red, White, r.nd Blue and with a few
months training will make a fine,
brave army of young men.
One of the finest things in the
camp is the Army Y. M. C. A. There
are six of these in camp Lewis, about
five men in each building that do not
hesitate in doing anything for our
pleasure and education. Thoy have
preaching twice n week, several lect
ures, moving pictures, music of all
kinds ? all free; also furnish us free
stationery, reading material and sport
goods. The Army Y. M. C. A. is a
great thing with us soldier boys, and
we appreciate every penny that is
given towards running them.
We have to get out at 5:15 in the
morning, march to the drilling
grounds and take thirty minutes ex
ercise before mess, which is at six
o'clock. This is a little h;:rd to do at
first, but it gives us a good appetite
all right for breakfast.
I am now in the 340th Machine Gun
Battalion, Company "B", but I will
soon transfer into the signal corps as
1 know the Morse Telegraphy and can
learn the Wireless in few weeks, so
will be of more service in thr.t work
as they are in need of wireless oper
Let me add that I get The H?rald
regularly and will nrrnnge to get it
as long as possible, for it seems like
getting a letter from home to me to

The sad part about the departure of
these boys will be overbalanced by
happiness on their return to find how
things have been made new. For their
work is making history, a history that
the world^will be proud of.
The ht-t.doo has been on the basket

slightly off and no apparent way to
remedy it without, as one of our
amorous faculty said, "somebody

help the state of affr.irs. The dormo
