By ELIZABETH TYLER" F
JThe people of .the South are once,
mor called upon to giye. This time
t Is for one of the most worthy of all
causes, the Salvation Army Home
Service Fund. - ;
When war-was declared the Salva
tion Army workers went over seas
with our Joys and down into ttia
trenches into the very Jaws of death.
They crossed the sea with our boys
with never a thought of personal in
Jury -never dreaming of the wave of
popularity or publicity they would get
slor this humble Christian service;
they ; had only. pnej. desire and that
was TO aervA our hnva whan thnv most
needed friends. They spent much of
ithe money that it had taken them
many years to collect in small change
SDent It unerudrincrlv because th6v
taw that our boys needed, it.
v All they asked In , return was that
they be allowed by their every day
examples to teach the Christianity our
Savior taught i while , on earth. ;,-.
Many seldiens tell of 'the wonder
ful work the Salvation Army has done
overseas. To me there is nothing
unusual about that work, but it is
the same kind of work and service
the Salvation Army has always given
here at home at our very own doors.
It -has taken the stories told by the
returning soldiers who have come to
know the Salvation Army to bring
about this wave of popularity for the
Salvation Army, but the Army has al.
ways worked and served as they are
now serving. -
It reaches a class of people that
no other religious organization can or
attempts to reach. The men and
women that are too ragged and mis
erable to attend the services at our
churches they reach the poverty
that hides and shrinks in the by-ways
of life. A man or woman can never
fall so low, but that this army of
earnest workers stretch out a helping
hand to them. Every man, woman apd
child in America should contribute to
tb,is Home Service fund because there
is not a corner in our beloved land,
uuwqrer remote, mai aoes nor receive
direct benefit from the Salvation
Army, for .fifty per cent of the popu
lation of the cities is made up of
jpeople that come from small towns
and from those remote sections and
ninety per cent of the boys and girls
that appeal to the Salvation Army
or assistance are those who have
come to the large cities and find them
selves unetual to the struggle for ex
istence. The Salvation Army, conducts Res
cue Homes, Day Nurseries, Homes for
the Helpless and Aged and Blind,
Lodging Houses for the men and worn-

Soldiers Tell Of Overseas Work.
The soldiers that are returning
from France after their hard strug
gle liave Jiqthing but words of praise
for the Salvation Army, and from the
lips of a soldier now at Camp Gordon
comes a story of a v frail Salvation
Army lassie that defied the shot and
shell of the Hun and carried him
three miles to a first aid station and
saved -his life that man is Sergeant
James McCoy of Co. E 17th Infan-

possessor of the Croix de Guerre, and
the famous Belgium medal for brav
ery was among the first Americans to
Join the Allies in the great world
"It was on my twentieth birthday,
August.5, 1918, in the famous Argonne
Forest that I received five machine
gun bullets in my legs as a sort of
a birthday present from the Hun,"
says Sergeant McCoy, of Camp Oor
don, Atlanta, Ga., as he extolled, the
work of the Salvation Army abroad.
"The rain of bullets from the ma
chine guns brought me to the ground
with hundreds of my comrades. In
.spite of thejpaln, I crawled along, and
after making two miles towards a
first aid station I fell in a faint and
lay there with shot and shell burst
ing around me. I will never know
who found me, but when I awakened
I was looking into the eyes of a frail
Salvation Army lassie, who had
bound my wpunds to check the 'flow
of blood and who was bathing my face
bringing me back to consciousness.
"It was after midnight, and the
only light around us came from the
bursting bombs and the hand gre
nades which were being hurled by one
of the strongest battalions of the Ger
man Crown Prince. She bade me
have courage and said that she would
carry me to the. nearest first aid sta-
uon, -wnicn was three miles away.
She unloosened my equipment and
carried me in-; a military fashion
straight tout over that perilous Jour
ney three miles away. - Time and
again she stopped to regain her
strength and each time after she .was
ready to go on she would bathe my
face-and make me as comfortable as
possible. How long it took her to
. bring .me . through that, shot ridden
land I will never know, for I after
wards learned that I fainted several
times during the Journey. It was
daylight when .the lassie, .carried me
to the first aid station and after foe
had placed me in ' the" hands of my
sturdy ' comrades she t sank to the
ground unconscious." . j .
This is only one of the many things
that I knaw of concerning the Sal-,
vation rmy and their .work with the
American troops abroad. They are
the greatest friends we have, and, if
the American public ,cap only be told
of ten per cent of their heroic deeds
in No Man's . Land 'the appropriation
of $13,000,000, .asked for by the Sal
vation Army, will be but a drop in the
bucket of the funds .actually received.
Brothers, sisters, wives or sweet
hearts of the American , soldiers should
always love and support the Salvation
Armjvfor they owe tha,t wonderful or
ganization a debt of gratitude, for by.
its example of humble Christian ser
vice it h,as implanted in the hearts of
the world through her fighting men,
a renewed faith in Christ and " the
seeds it has sown in No Man's Land
and at the training camps, which will
spring up and bear fruit that will give
the world the first real taste of de
Heroes Explain Why
In the following words Private
Frank Ivy, of Goldsboro, N. C, sums
up what he has seen of the work of
the Salvation Army abroad. Private
Ivy, who was a member of Company
K, 167th Infantry, was severely wound-,
ed in the early battles of Soissons.
While he 'lay on his cot at Fort Mc
Pherson, Hospital, waiting time to
heal the wounds inflicted by the
Huns, he was at his happiest period,
as he discussed the work of the Sal
vation Army, both here and abroad.
When he learned of the coming
drive in May for additional funds for
this great cause, the wounded hero
said: "I hopq I am out by thai time,
and, if I am not, there are thousands
who would go far and wide to tell the
people of this country Just w3at the
Salvation Army' stands for, what it did
for its boys under 8heU ,flre, in the
hospitals, and, in fact, everywhere we
went, the Salvation Army .worker was
bound to be there. This is no adver
tising campaign, for all the boys will
have to do is to tell the truth of this
great work and the great American
public will do the rest"
Sergeant George Henderson, of
Jacksonville, Fla., who was wounded
at Chateau Thierry, is following the
example of Private Cook and organ
izing the discharged soldiers of Flor
ida to put over the Salvation Army
Drive in his home State, as the Sal
vation Army so ably assisted to put
over drive after' drive in the crudest
days of the great world war.
We doughboys know how to help,
and we are going to do'lti1 says Ser
geant Henderson. "The Salvation
Army cared pot .(pr'shot or shen,'ior
their only thought was to aid others
in spite of the personal risk to them
selves. They started in the war with
us at our training camps in America
and remained with' us until we put
the Hun back on his own ground and
started him on the greatest retreat
that a losing army was ever forced to
Debt of Gratitude
America will never know the grati
tude she owes to the Salvation Army
and the number of lives that this little
sturdy band of workers saved by their
fearless actions in the greatest of all
Hundreds of statements have come
to our office from those who know
of the Salvation Army's work in the
There will be no vital change In the
administration of the work. The Tam
bourine Girl will no longer circulate
among us, however, except at devo
tional services. The big drive is for
funds to replace this smiling lassie
and release her from collecting small
change to devote her entire time to
a work of mercy. The people of
America will be asked to contribute
once each year instead of all the year
round to the Salvation Army and per
petuate its work.
Some of the most prominent men In
the South will tour this section of
the country, in the interest of the
drive. Judge J. S. Reynolds, formerly
Solicitor General ot the Augusta Cir
cuit and one of the best known liw-
yers in the South,, is .chairman of the
speaker committee. He has gathered
about him men who have made good
in their respective lines and who will
8 peak in the behalf of the Salvation
Army Drive. '
Among the prominent speakers who
will tour the South are: Judge Mar
cus Beck, of Georgia; Dr. S. R. Belk,
Walter P. Andrews of Atlanta, Clif
ford Walker, Attorney "General for
Georgia, Rev. James Horton, C. Mur
