Warsaw, Feb. 10. — That Bolshe

turning: to imperialism, with per

Nihilism, with a sort of orderly dis
order, is the mipreaslon given by
many refugees of all nationalities
who have arrived here from Rus

to a number of thehe people as to
what might happen in Russia if
there is no outside interference. One
of them was 'a Bolshevist soldier
who deserted.
"Our chief characteristic," he
said, "is that we are tired—tired of
fooling, tired of killing, tired of
fighting and tired of wandering
from pillar to post. There is no
doubt that Leon Trotzky is attempt

Women Worked at All How.
That Fighting Men Always
60,000 Hot Meals Furnisher
A good substantial hot meal, or
an abundant variety of refresh
ments—to say nothing of the en
couragement and cheer —to every
man, woman and child in Harris
burg, with the entire population of
several of the suburbs thrown in,
gives a meager estimate of the jrork
that has been accomplished by the
Canteen Service of the American
Red Cross in this city. This is
shown by the reports Just completed
for the month of January.
Harrisburg's fame for the suc
cess of this work has spread all
over the United States, and the
complete records show over 85,000
soldiers and sailors of all national
ities have been cared for by this
local organization, which is under
the direction of Mrs. Francis J.
Hall, captain and her assistant,
Mrs. W. H. Gaither.
One In an active daily life is per
haps unconsciously forgetful of the
continued suffering as a result of
the recent war, can but little rea
lize that daily there passes through
Harrisburg hundreds of the best
boys in the United States, maimed
and crippled for life; mentally de
ficient as the result of shell-shock
and speechless and suffering from
the terrible effects of poisonous gas.
This flower of American manhood,
the lads who battled that we may
continue to be a free country, can
not forget, as letters and telegrams
indicate, the wonderful treatment
they receive from this coterie of
tireless workers in this city. Their
pay is a great pay; even if it only
be a smile or a suggestion of grac
iousness from a lad whose days are
perhaps but short, as his pinched
face would indicate.
To realize the amount of food and
refreshments it has taken to ffeed
these boys, one must figure upon
truck loads of chocolate, oranges
and apples, thousands of cigarets.
100,000 stamped postal cards and
newspapers and magazines the
amount of which cannot be estab
lished. .
60,000 Hot Meals
The Canteen Service has an ar
rangement with the Pennsylvania
Depot restaurant, with the result
that over 60,000 hot meals have
been prepared for the soldier boys.
During the month of January 12,-
235 soldiers and sailors received
food and other refreshments in this
city, and among the items was 13,-
378 pints of coffee, 109 gallons of
milk, 41 gallons of stewed oysters
for litter patients, boys who may
never arise from their beds again,
to say nothing of the several thou
sand meals, hundreds of cakes of
chocolate, fruit, tobacco; etc.
This is why Harrisburg has been
placfcd on the map as a record city
for its canteen work, and those who
do all this do not ask why the gov
ernment often seems deficient in its
care of the boys, but they take up
their labors with a willingness that
is sacred, and this has even been
appreciated by the Hon. Josephus
Daniel. Secretary of the Navy, who
recently wrote Mrs. Gaither thank
ing her for some kindness that was
brought to his attention, and then
"This incident affords an oppor
tunity for me to express to you my
great appreciation of the" work
which you and the great army of
American women are doing in the
canteen service of the Red Cross,
in furnishing aid and assistance to
officers and men of the army and
navy during the war."
Each day makes history in the
work, and the- following was taken
at random from the report of Mrs.
Hall for last month:
"Received a telegram from Phila
delphia headquarters that a wound
ed soldier in a very nervous condi
tion had been placed on a train ar
riving in Harrisburg at 10.40 p. m.
He was in charge of a medical stu-
I dent who would leave him here.
The soldier wanted to go to a
friend near York, and as he had
only 24 hours leave it was neces
sary to get him through. One work
er met the boy; another telephoned
his friend, and he was met at York.
The soldier had a remarkable his
tory. He was a a Canadian and en
listed in a machine gun company in
1914. He came of a Belgian family
and his father was in the Belgian
army; later became a prisoner in
Germany. The boy had been buried
alive for three hours, was deaf and
dumb for four months, had been
wounded in two places, had been
shell-shocked, was very crip
pled and nervous. He was very ap
preciative, and after his leave he
was met again, taken to a "movie"

His Charge Intact
The above is but one of hundreds
is an example of a telegram that
about by a splendid system. Here
of items, and this is all brought
came recently: "Request coffee
seven hundred fifty men. O. H.
Withoff, Lieut." That meant that
102 gallons x>t hot coffee had to be
ready and on the depot platform
less than an hour after the message
was received. Another read: f'Penn
sylvania train and 2d 34. 90 sol
diers would appreciate food: also
medical kit." Such requests are in
numerable, but this goes to show
the character of the work.
Not a long time since a carload
of sheU demented ' lads arrived
from the South minus their officer.
He stepped from the train at York,
and missed it. Fortunately two of
the children were at the station here
when the train pulled in, and the
trainmen soon made their predica
ment known. These two women
took the 26 men, 12 of whom were
colored, marched them to a Third
street restaurant, where they guard
ed the doors while they ate, return
ed the men to the station without
one escaping, for several tried it,
and when the frightened officer ar
rived three hours later, his charge
was intact, and if ever there was a
gracious officer that dapper little
chap was one; for it meant no court
marshal, as the women had not
only held the car here but took
absolute charge of the situation.
"Lady," whispered a boy whose
both legs had been amputated, and
who lay in a berth. "Lady," he
said, "Do you know it was you
women in Harrisburg that first met
us when we were draftees. Since
then we have been met everywhere
by the Red Cross and here we are
all again, but I am not quite the
fellow I was." Another Said to a
worker: "Red Cross nurse, you are
not very handsome, but you look
good to me,'' and so it goes each
day as these tireless workers return
to their homes happy with the
knowledge that ihev helped to
bring some little sun light into the
journey from whence some will
neVer return.
Many Touching Incidents <
There are many touching inci
dents that may be related. Recent
ly a boy with both hands off asked
one of the canteen workers to write
home for him. It was a few lines
on a postal, a childish note about
enow and a sled for a little one he
had left behind. That evenirfg an
other letter from the canteen work
er went to the mother, a word of
encouragement about her boy. Later
cam; an answer to Mrs. Hall, a
with these words: "I slept last night
for the first- time."
There is apparently no end to
the work in sight, and it is likely
that it will be continued for a year
at least. The railroad men aVe
more than generous with their as
sistance and the system is so per
fected that on many occasions the
captains are aware of the time of
the arrival of trains, .ogether with
the number of men aboard, whether
they are wounded or not. what food
they will require and other de
tails, 2 4 hours in advance. These
good women work in teams, two
lieutenants having charge on one
day in the week, with the privilege
of calling on as many workers as
will be necessary. The rules re
quire that they be uniformed. They
must be cheerful, and many a tear
has been held back until a train
would disappear In the distance.
