SEEING AMERICA Any American of imagination, who goes westward from the rather crowded iiast and roams about in the big states, 'is'likely to be,, overwhelmed by the immensity of what he sees. There is so much of the West, in space'and variety, that nobody can grasp it. .Kastorners may bo ' thrilled or sobered by it, but what it is and what it signifies is beyond their power to tell. The plainsmen, the mountain men, the people of the great deserts, and those fronting on the Pacific whose minds look beyond the western shores, they perhaps most.truly know America and what it stands for and what it is about. They can, and-will, praise their own regions in great detail to those so unfortunate as to live elsewhere, .But even they cannot retily describe or explain the vastness and power of their country. Any .easterner who has never seen the tremendous Kockics should see them •when- the war is'over. .He should see, no less, the vast deserts whose range, is almost .inconceivable, even by those who know and love or fear them, Such things are a po\\vr for the American soul, even when there is in them no visible..usefulness.. And fop them, too, will be found ample practical use in due time. One thing which seems sure is that after this war, as after former wars, there' will be a re-awakening and greater un- .d'crslanding of our nation's extent, ve- fso-a.recs and unity. There may well be another, pioneer movement, mental and Spiritual as well as material. 20 Years Ago • Mrs, W. J.

Now it is- i-ecognixed that soldiers cannot be military all the time, and that if tlic-v were interested in popular songs before entering service, they still are. The con. (act with civilian' life which these hit kits offer will help keep soldiers cheerful. Life changes. Who can imagine AVasli- ington's Revolutionary soldiers with hit kits'.' Yes, that man Patton is a tough guy with serious faults—but one of the ino'st. men in th'ii war. Tl'ic calendar tells us today is Sep- temher 1. Tlie year ol.'
