f SELLS SAVINGS
STAMPS AT HUTS
TO U. SOLDIERS
Takes Big Part m Inculcating
"Thrift by Placing These
Means at Disposal
By placing war saving stamps on
file at each of its 68 service huts in
the 20 military centers of the
central military department the.army
.Young Men's Christian association is
actively engaged in the promotion of
thrift among the soldiers and in aid
ing the government in financing its
.war program, according ' to an an
nouncement received here. Already
it is stated, the 300,000 enlisted men
mobilized in the middle west are re
sponding generously to the appeal of
the government to fake their share
of war savings stamps, even though
a large majority of them have invested
in Liberty bonds and government in
surance on which they are still mak
Resold to Soldiers.
With the stamp on sale in the 68
service huts of the Young Men's
Christian association their accessi
bility to the soldier and sailor is made
easier and more certain. Printed
matter telling of th advantages of
purhasing stamps, both to hinuelf and
his country, is being distributed by the
.Young Men's Christian assoiation
secretaries as well as placed in a
conspicuous place in all the green
huts which thousands of soldier boys
frequent. A special fund has been
set aside by the National Atfar Work
Council for the purchase of stamps to
be sold again to the soldiers. The
army Young Men's Christian associa
tion will thus act as a repository for
war savings stamps and the service
will be rendered without charge as a
part of the established program of the
association to promote thrift among
the men o." the national army.
"Who Saves Serves."
Camp Grant Young Men's Chris
tian association officials have re
ported that more than $1,000 worth of
war savings stamps were bought by
enlisted men within a few days after
they were put on sale in the green
huts. Camp Sherman secretaries are
actively co-operating in the state
wide stamp sale movement. Supplies
of the little pasters that are to remind
soldiers and civilians alike that he
"Who Saves Serves" are now on sale
at Camps Custer, Taylor, Dodge and
Funston, besides Great Lakes training
station and the various barracks and
aviation fields where Young Men's
Christian association huts are pro
vided for the unrestricted use of the
men in khaki.
The cultivation of thrift among en
listed J.ien is an integral part of the
army Young Men's Christian associ
ation program in every military train
ing center, says a statement from the
National War Work council. For the
purpose of inculcating f sense ' of
thrift among the men who are espe
cially in need of it, a set of panels
illustrating the advantages of unwise
spending have been prepared for cir
culation m all of the big army camps
of the central department. These are
exhibited in prominent positions in
the Young Men's .Christian association
tihuts and compose a part of the plan
.carried on for thrift in earnings as
jvell as in health and intellect.

Captain . P. Letton Describes

Sinking Transport Tuscania
Son of , Supreme Judge, in
Letter, Tells Feeling After
Torpedo Struck Amer

(From a Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, March 4. (Special.) The
story of the sinking of the Tuscania
by a German submarine is tpld in a
letter written by Captain Harry P.
Letton to his father, Judge C. B. Let
ton, of the Nebraska' supreme court,
received at the state house yesterday.
Captain Letton was on the Tuscania
and escaped, but lost all of his equip
ment. He writes from Londonderry,
Ireland, saying in part:
"Have been here now for two days,
but will probably leave tomorrow and
continue my trip. I am writing this
now in the hope that it will be allowed
to pass since the news of the sinking
has been released in the United States
for two days and it will be old by .he
time you receive this. I hope you
received my cablegram which I sent
the day I landed.

k wen, it was an
never want to repeat.
"Well, it was an experience Jhat I
:ver want to repeat. I was in my
state room where I had gone to shave
before dinner. Suddenly I heard a
dull thud, felt the boat quiver and
heard glass crashing. Then the lights
went out. I knew where my flash
light was and as soon as I found it, I
got my overcoat and life belt and
went to my station. I was supposed
to get away on the first boat at one
station, but men crowded into it so
fast from another station that I was
left. I then helped some enlisted men
to get their raft overboard. They
looked pretty precarious to me, so I
thought I would wait and see what
would turn up.
"The boat was settling : away
slowly, but not listing much. It was
a scene I will never forget as long as
I live. After about an hour a de
stroyer came alongside and I got into
Calling for Volunteers
; To Help in Planting Trees
,-Harrisburg,. Pa., March 24. Ar
rangements have just been completed
for the most extensive re-forestation
plan that has ever been attempted in
this state, but the war has made such
a drain on woodmen that Commis
sioner of Forestry Conklin is issuing a
call for young men to volunteer their
services as tree planters. More than
8,000,000 trees have to be set out with
out delay and while a number otstate
college students have already enrolled
for the work, highway department of
ficials are anxious to obtain many
The plans call for the re-forestation
of lands now owned by the state,
many of which were cut over years
ago and which now will have to be
"The state nurseries have about
21,000,000 trees and 8,000,000 of these
must be put in the ground to prevent
serious loss, but owing to the large
number of foresters and woodmen
who have enlisted, we need men to do
the planting," said Commissioner
"The planting season will open
about April 5 or 10 and will continue
until about May 25. The men who do
the work will be well cared for in
camp, paid good wages, given travel
ing expenses and will have, in addi
tion, a valuable experience in the
woods. The planters also will know
they are doing something to help
along the state's conservation work.
This year we will plant on more de
nuded hillsides than ever before, if
we can obtain the men."
Made io order ai
Othat boat, sliding down a rope. Later
another destroyer came alongside and
took off everyone, the two carrying
over 1,000 men.
"From the latest reports here the
loss will be less than 200. If we had
known that the boat would float as
long as it did and that the destroyers
were coming alongside, the loss
would have been much smaller. Most
of those lost were men thrown into
the water, boats capsizing, or by slid
ing down' a rope and the. small boats
moving before they got in,
"We have been in the hands of the
British military authorities ever since
we landed and they have taken good
care of us. I lost everything I had
except overcoat, hat, helmet and
camera. I happened to have the cam
era in my overcoat pocket or would
have lost that. Had I known that I
would get off in the destroyer I could
have loaded my pockets with other
things, but C felt that if I went into
the water the less I had the better.
I understand from a representative
of the quartermaster's department
who is here from England that we
will get a retund on the stuff we lost
I hope so, but am not worried, as I
know you don't care for that as long
as I am safe. I understand that I can
buy practically everything I need
from the qusrtermaster in Paris, so
am not buying here except what I
really have tc have.
"This is a great country here. The
weather is like our April or May. The
grass is green and the flowers are in
bloom. It rains off and on every day,
but no one seems to mind that. We
landed at Buncrana and came over
here on the narrow gauge railroad.
The houses along the line look just
like the pictures I have seen, low
stone buildings, whitewashed and
with thatched roof. The place is in
teresting. There is a wall encircling
what was the old town and which was
the scene of a terrible siege in 1633.
I never realized before how really
comfortable Americans are fixed.
They get along here without half the
everyday conveniences w have."
