"v.v."..v.. ...... v. v.y.y.y.v.v-.v. ... . o By ELIZABETH TYLER" F in'"1 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 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- CaAAO ITaPaw t m il. . 1 V WW A ()VHM V AM A. s JJ X0 fcUV l UUU 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 war. "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 mocracy, v 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 make: 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 fights." Hundreds of statements have come to our office from those who know of the Salvation Army's work in the trenches. 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 phy "XJandler, Georgia Railroad Com m is sioner, Hooper Alexander, Diatrio! Attorney, and many others.
