DescriptionTHEY say, who have come back from Over There, that at night the troubled earth between the lines is carpeted with pain. They say that Death rides whistling in every wind, and that the very mists are charged with awful torment. They say that of all things spent and squandered there young human life is held least dear. It is not the pleasantest prospect for those of us who yet can feel upon our lips the pressure of our mothers' good- bye kiss. But, please God, our love of life is not so prized as love of right. In this renaissance of our country's valor, we who will edge the wedge of her assault make calm acceptance of its hazards. For us the steel-swept trench, the stiffening cold-weariness, hardship, worse. For you for whom we go, you millions safe at home-what for you ? We shall need food. We shall need care. We shall need clothes for our bodies and weapons for our hands, We shall need terribly and without failure supplies and equipment in a stream that is constant and never ending. From you who are our resource and reliance, who are the heart and hope of that humanity for which we smite and strive, must come these things. 17 p.
