Taking up Major General Amos Fries' idea about organizing girl battalions in the schools, Mr. Collins found himself unable to do the subject subject in prose. He contributed a bit of what he said was poetry entitled: "The Amazons, or The Petticoat Brigade," suggesting that General Fries adopt it as a campaign song. Here is a sample: "I've traded my horse and sold .my cow; "I'm through with a farmer's life, and how! "For I'm going to be a soldier now "With women in the army. Chorus: "Oh, it's fun to be a soldier, boys, "And with the women stand "In uniform at drill, boys, "And hold each other's hand."
