Capt. Archie Roosevelt Writes
of Conditions In American
Overseas Forces During
the War.
New York, May 26. (Special.)
Capt. Archie Roosevelt, in the cur
rent issue of Everybody's, concludes
his series of stories of conditions
that prevailed in the A. E. F. during
the earlier months of the war.
Regular army officers, promoted
by the seniority rule, evinced, in most
cases, he says, an ineradicable pur
pose to fight the Germans on Indian
war principles. Staff work was ex
ecrable, he charges, and blunders
that worked havoc with morale and
cost many lives were frequent. His
chief ground of criticism, however,
is the lack of food and equipment
during the period of intensive train
ing in bitter cold weather prior to
the Cantigny campaign.
Colonel Roosevelt, the captain's
father, and Mrs. Archie Roosevelt,
he says, supplied the shoes the men
of his company wore during the bat
tle of Cantigny.
Points to "Roseate Falsities."
Directing attention to what he
calls "roseate falsities" industriously
circulated with regard to tfie excel
lent army service, Captain Roosevelt
- "To refute the deliberate lies out
forth by those who show their ef
forts accomplished, I will list some
of the supplies of our division when
in the trenches nine months after
we had declared war on Germany:
"Shoes Mostly English and
French. The English shoes did not
fit and were the cause of most of
our foot troubles.
"Uniforms A great many British
uniforms, actually equipped with
buttons stamped with the royal in
signia. Some of our men would not
stand this and ripped the buttons off,
but most of us were only too glad
to get the British uniforms, which
were far superior to the thin shoddy
American uniforms.
Caps Made in France.
"Caps French. Manufactured in
France. Those later manufactured
in the United States were so ridicu
lous that even the general staff
made no effort to force them on us.
"Airplanes French and generally
condemned French machines.
"Artillery Horses Condemned
French horses.
"Field Artillery French.
"Signal Equipment French with
instructions written in French.
Captain Roosevelt also lists French
automatics and machine guns and
British mortars and ammunition.
The onlv entirelv American equip
ment in the First division was rifles,
but he instances several companies
of untrained men coming into the
war zone with pitted weapons, which
he took to be condemned national
guard rifles.

"He's a grand man, but terribly
jealous of me," Amanda told John
Dunn, chief of detectives.

Anyway he quit me.

had a job in an apartment house
cleaning rooms at which I made $21
a week. My work necessitated being
with a man who also had a job in
the place. My husband used to
raise Ned about this fellow.
But believe me I think too much
of my man to trifle at all. Now he's
gone. I don't know what I'll do,"
