HIDE CLOTHES TO
Returning Convalescents Now
About Balance List of
Washington, July 5. The list of
casualties from the American army
fighting-in France is now being bal
anced by returning convalescents,
whose numbers in the reconstruction
centers like Walter Reed hospital here
have reached an appreciable total.
It is an outstanding fact to all ob
servers that an American youth
smashed by a shell, bomb, or hand
grenade is, notwithstanding, exactly
the same kind of an individual he was
before he went in. High spirited,
mischievous, all personal loss dis
counted and humanly anxious to re
sume any dull round of civilian labor,
they have a tendency to regard the
carefully planned hospital school for
re-educating them to usefulness with
the same distaste that healthy youth
has for the training establishments,
however desirable he may know them
So a chance visitor to the hospital
expecting to discover a hero is apt
to find a proportion of youths whose
clothes have been taken away from
them to compel them to stay near
their beds. They are likely to be cal
culating intelligently their chances to
shirk irksome routine. Whatever ad-
venture and torture they have lived
is forgotten while their force and en
ergy are entirely devoted to the prob
lem of today.
v, j i.a n r r iti Til t np it m v ami
normal beings,, undepressed and en
tirely unworried about anything," ex
plained Major Cotton, one of the
chiefs of orthopedic surgery at Wal
ter Reed. "We find these are not ill
people. Their , mental and physical
vigor is astonishing to persons not
familiar with the circumstances."
It is requiring 'a continuation of
'military discipline and considerable
patience and persistence to work out
on this material, the far-sighted plans
for teaching a maimed man a new and
productive trade. The massage, hy
drotherapy, and electric treatment to
restore wasted muscle and shrunken
limb are regarded as splendid, but
the schools are dodged most gladly.
Still, the men are weaving baskets,
and demonstrating intelligent interest
in automobile mechanics, and other
wise submitting to requirements
which are made before they can have
liberty or any leisure.
"See a German?" responded Maur
ice Becker, once a private in the 16th
infantry. "You bet I saw a GeVnian.
Three of them, all at once, one night,
patrolling in frefnt of our post. They
got my buddy with a rifle bullet, and
I was cutting loose with my automat
ic and hand grenades. We got two,
md one of my own grenades got me.
Afraid of Grenades.
Becker explained the suspicion he
had about hand grenades, which is
shared by all soldiers in their first
meeting with that deadly weapon.
"Yah, they tell you it is timed for
five seconds," he announced scorn
fully, "and then one goes off in three
seconds, and the" next goes off in
seven so Fritz can dump it back on
They are going to try and teach
Becker to be an automobile expert
before they send him back home to
Mishawaka, Ind. (
Sergt. Paul Chamberlain, 22 years
old and with six years' military ser
vice behind hini, had a new theory.
'Tin a military tauure, ne an
nounced, after it was explained that
a shrapnel shell had taken away a
good section of one foot. "A fellow
with my experience could have
stepped right along, promotion and
ill, but Fritz picked me off too quick.
N'othing heroic about it; we'd been
,n 20 days in trencli at Toul, and were
going Out at dawn on March 9 when
they tagged me. There's a bunch of
scrap- iron in these Dutch shells, and
it got me.
"Still, maybe I'll be an instructor or
something with the army yet awhile.
Down here, I'm studying poultry rais
ing. One soldier, a mimic, broke up the
discussion by re-enacting the scenes in
the base hospital wards, when English
visitors demanded incessantly, My
word, are you really a Yank? '
Thus, the one grimness about Wal
ter Reed hospital, where '1,100 pa
tients now are housed is the head
quarters map which often adds many
red lines on a blueprint to show ex
tensions building, and more, yellow
lines to show extensions planned. It
does not expend to the wounded who
are back from over there.
They won't let it while they have
a joke lett.
