It was notably appreciated, because we in charge of the ac ­ tivities there greatly needed the publicity. And. because it was. “ As a Woman Thinks,” we do f&t mind ths suggestions that brass bqttona and Sam Browne belts bring men to the colors as reserve officers for their vacations. Tou should have come to Larchmont on Memorial Day when a mother told tow she felt when her boy twice went away to war. Tou ahould have talked more carefully with that major of yours, who was neaUy shined and. polished. Tou would have noticed that he had been In several campaigns. If you had scan ­ ned his ribbons, and hs would have told you of nlghte without sleep, mud. di^-t, vermin, hesrteche for tboee at home, physical agony.

If you, dear lady, understood what It maant for anyone to sarn the \scenery\ at which you scoff, you would know that It come only after tireless hours of work; lonllness as one dregs around a rifle on guard when everyone else sleeps; horrid, sweating hours that would not be permitted In our civilian organization. War. even away from the front, la not pleasant; there are no brass buttons. When you are through with the housework, and can snatch a few hours, you put on your finest} do you not? So do those of the Army. ' They dress up a bit. knowing that they need not walk through the dust, nor wallow through ths mud. Moreover. If the Army were to be represented as an Inatitu- tltion with fortune telling booths here and 'there, with hot-dog stands on every- side, war would not be such an unpleasant thought. But If you happened to notice the replica of the battle of Cantlgey. you eaw that there were no pretty girls on the battle-ground, that officers snapped orders anH\men went forward; that guns boomed and rifles and machine guns popped; and that the situation was manifestly uncomfortable. It was scarcely con ­ ducive to militarism. It made even those who wore tho brass buttons In ths grand-stand hope that they need not become involv ­ ed In such difficulties, when real bullets would be used Instead of •Wanks. And those on the field had the drab, field outfit, to which the business suit always is preferabls. A mile under heavy march ­ ing order would convlqoe you of that.
