TUESDAY, MARCH 5, 1915. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNEJLLSVILLE, PA. PAGE "KANGAROO COURT' JUSTICE USED TO CURB VIOLATORS OF ETHICS OF THE SOLDIER LIFE Rather severe justice is sometimes mete-d out by he. men themselves in array camps to comrades who violate he ethics o£ soldier life. A form ol punishment that is at once primitive and effective is described by Chalmers Bryson of Dunbar, 'member of the Twenty-eighth Hempstead, 1. Aero squadron at I., in a letter to his mother, Mrs. Adam Bryson. "The New York people," he says, This means .'that he was fired off the job and reduced. He was tried on a charge of being a stomach robber and the boys had some old scores to even up. He was a provost sergeant in" Canada and sentenced some of them to terms on the rock pile, and if he did not sentence them he was in position to see Ulat they got it The entire squadron was in court The fellow was given a fair trial and found "seem to b« very'generous and opeir- I guilty. The judge of the court was handed with the soldiers. But some one of the rock pile victims. The sen- ol the men do not appreciate their goodness. They take advantage of anything. Two or three fellows were tried in our 'kangaroo'.court for accepting money from civilians. They were found guilty and sentenced to 15 raps across the seats of their breeches with a metal mess kit The 'sheriff*, who administered punishment, was a. husky fellow and laid it on. They were charged with making the United States army, and especially the Twenty-eighth Aero'Squadron, look like a bunch of bums.. "But most important case the court has had to deal with was when our former'mes sergeant was 'busted'.

Needless to say he was crying like a babe long before the. 35 were due. He was a big fellow, weighing 250 pounds and made a good subject, vi'e all enjoyed it." "I am trying to serve a double purpose in writing often," Chalmers says. ''In the first place I want to write and tell you about our squadron, and the second reason is that when my letters stop for a couple of weeks yon will know that 1 am in England or on the way."
