79TH SALUTING IS PRAISED BY INSPECTOR
Officers and Men Snappy, Says Major Rich in Letter

"The question of ctisciplh^le and military courtesy", the leUer conth^lues, "is one ol the hardest tbiog^fi that an Inspector has to contend ·with and when he sees an organization in which the officers and enlisted men have apparently made it their special duty to demonstrate that discipline and military cour lesy is not a har^ilsl^lip but a pleasure, he teats a great load old ol his system and he proceeds to tell everyone about this organization ·^ivl^lether it is his OWI^I or not. "I felt very much complimented -although I knewtl^l.^Ltit^\iasthe Statl automobile that they were saluth^lg and that they wo^L^I^ld have, h~stinctively, sah^lted even if the automobile had been empty. "I also feel that the Division Comma rler, Beth Division, should feel complimented that the officers and enlisted men ot his Division should have performed thei^l duties in a maur^ler which ·lemu^Lulod favors able comment on the part ol an Army Inspector, as he is one of the hardest persons connected with the military service to convince that anything is absolutely correct'.

The new game of Doughboy, uubich has, been tried out success^f^L^Ill^y at G.^tH. Q., has been played by several organizations of this division, aud is robing strong everywhere it has had a tryout. The 31^lth Macl^li^l^le Gun BaL^Lalio^l^l has probably done more udtl^l the game than a^dy other organization, and nte^l-compa^l^ly matches are being played,
Repyrts are that tbe~men like the ~.llllD,~llli it Quill probably become quite the Lhing ^udL^l^l^in a short time. It is a neu^l departure in athletic games, being designed with a vie
to leLtii^lg as many men play it as U^ID^nt to. Practically an urlimiLe
number of teams can play it on a r el;^ltively small Gelrl, and the ^Immb'er of players demanded is elastic
be game had tryouts with a battalion aL G. 11. Q., and as the results we're observed, the necessary modiGc.itio^l^ls of the rules revere made Lo bring it Lo a point Where it Divas adaptable to all sorts of different Geld conditions and to the number of players available.

The High Sign of military efficiency is the snappy salute. Army bispectors, whose job it is to pick the Oaws, can tear n a whole lot in a sho^lt time about a divi sion whose officers and men snap into th salute as ii they meant it. The pep^iul Pen dering of the High Sigu^is proul positive ul nterest. And, when officers and men ar nterested in their weld, efficiency is the an swer. Esprit de corps is the logical result In anotl^l~r column, we publish a letter from Major Ri II, Assistant h^1spector Gen eral, First Army. He has kind words tot us and the tact they come from a qualifier judge in another Army surely does not de tract Irom their euphony and rml ic. Everybody in the Seventy Ninth Divisio thanks Major Rich for his words and to the spirit of his letter. Our salutes to hi were only, alter all, the visible signs of th spirit which drove us forward at Mont faucon and Hill 378. ~1~
in one of the many villages occupied b troops of our divison, there is a little 'sol dier of Italian birth who represents th ED best and highest traditions of the gloriou American Army. He has the manners of , courtier and the gallantry of a Princ t , Charming. 'A · An old woman was trundling a heavil c laden wheel barrow thru one of the street I in the village recently. The job was to
., _~ much for her and her efforts to keep th V\ homely vehicle in motion showed the tact
. J Came UpOIi the scene, our little Ameri
,,c~ ~ can of Italian origin. Ile beamed upo
~ ~ the old woman and, with a sweeping bow cats offered his services. The old woman beam ed. The SUIi cattle out and it beamed too .' Then the soldier strode old wheeli the barrow. Behind him, walked the ol woman. They disappeared around th corner of a building anal we went on. Gee, that m^liform looked good on tha . man.
That old-fashioned American institution the Doughuut, has much more bearing o the morale of troops than some peopl think. Its a reminder of Home and th eating of it is a reminder of those day which came long before the Great War n Europe was ever dreamed of. Every Am erican likes doughnuts.
"Over The Top Wiih a Doughnut might well be adopted as the slogan of
great welfare organization which, thr 100 per cent. American men and women is distributor Amrrican ciougbnuts to Am erican doughboys and the other member of the Army.
Gentlemen, hats off to the Salvatio Army. When you are jaded and sick a heart, drop by its hut and breutl^le in th odors which come from the spick an spoil little kitchen when Caphdn Shnmon and her associates are baking'em fresh an brown. You'll want to set to jiggh^lg righ away and to sing Lhe old favo^lite, "Say 1, There's a Hole in the Doughnut Too"
We'll bet the Huns never ate doughnuts

Two things are necessary in the Army Food and Rumors. We cannot get alo^li without either. Study of rumors, especia ly their growth and spread, is very inter sting. Consider the case of the Misli Harness. Someone said it Would navel fit any horses in his outfit but might fit ~ Camel. The next man said the Q. M. was oing to issue camels instead of horses. inaTly, the division heard that we were coked to go to Egypt because harness tot amels had been issued to one outfit. Rumors are ol two kincls: Those that Ye true and those that al e false. he fatter predominate but, occasion lly, rumors come Hue. Men who read true rumors should be blessed; hose who spread lake rumors should be anged by the neck~unLil they are dead. here ale ilarmless~ Rumors and Harn:lu, U^mOI'S. A repo^lt that corned vvillie is to e abolished in Lhe aru^ly, even it it prove .Ise, is a harmless rumor. A story Lhu, e will be borne in May unless it be true, s a hamnlul runioi. Certain Atmospl^leres are more produc ive of rumo^ls than o^Ll^lers. Very lew m: ors are hatched in the open air. BuL, hloride oi lime brings them out. Som lo^lpora^l once said that an Army travel. n its stomach. An Army may travel on its stomach bo^l t thrives and blossoms on its rumors. J
