He landed in the United States the first of the month and spent tho time wit!/ relatives and visiting with his brot«er, Robert U Kaln, Just returning from bis first cruise as a member of the Annapolis Acade. my second year class. Father Kain went over the Inst of the year ns a Y. M. C. A. overseas worker. "I was assigned to the first army division on my arrival and was first stationed with these boys at their winter rest camp in the Gouu- drecoitrl region. This was In December and tho hut was a large one and well equipped, in fact It was the second largest then in France. All of tho time, there were diversions of some kind going on for tbe men, lectures, vaudeville and musical entertainments. "But the thing which stood out torn- most during that winter was tho mud. It is the mud of France that the boys dread moro than anything else. 1 know I would be borne out by all In the statement that they would rather face the cannons than go Into the winter camps and live In the prevailing mud. • , Sent to Toul Sector. "About -the first of February, the whole outfit, 1,200 men, were sent to the Toul sector. This was a unlet sector where little fighting was going on, mostly artillery fire and gassing no hurry. There our Y. .YT. C. A. hut was small, only partially developed and the boys had to be limited in numbers ill coming to the hut as their officers had orders not to allow the concentration of numbers at any one place. "Here my partner and I had a 24 hour shift to work out. The hut was | never closed and I believe that If ouri stay at this place had been two | months instead of six weeks we would both have been dead. Hiked 150 Miles. "On Easter day the division was sent cross country to the Picardy region, part of the Journey being on the little freight trains of France but about 160 miles of it wo hiked across the country. The hikes (were made mostly at night for safety Bake and in the day lime we had our rest lime. Reaching the I'icardy front we went immediately Into the Cantigny action. We were the first Americans to be engaged in action. "The first division was in tbe trenehes practically 50 days, lho longest period of any trrfopy, no matter j what nationality, up to that time. The soldiers were relieved to go immediately into the Chateau Thierry fight and were stationed at the Solssons end of the drive. This division was the first to go into Solssons." The first division in Ihis time saw service on all the battle fronts with tho exception of Flanders, it was made up of boys from the Southern futates, mostly from Kentucky", Louisiana and Georgia and their officers as a rule were Southern men. During all his year's Btay in France Father Kaln never saw' a Kansas man, although he heard from many indirectly. When a Y. M. C. A. man is attached to a division be sees only the men in this division. Only the Y. M. men who are attached to the rest camps see a change of men. "And rest camp assignments would be most monotonous," said Father Kain. An Author for Co-Workers. The other Y. M. man with the first division, whom Father Kain refers to as his partner was Henry Russell Miller, a Saturday Evening Post writer and a member of the well known group of Indiana writers. His best known novel is "The Man Higher Up." "To me he was more Interesting than lrvan Cobb, who spent two weeks with our division," said Father Kaln. "Cobb made a big hit with tho officers with whom he messed and be always kept the tablo In an uproar duriug meal time, What appealed to the soldiers most was Cobb's recklessness, he didn't mind what was the odds in finding out about what he wanted to know. When the order came to go "over the top"t at Chateau Thierry, although ho had been told it Would not be permissible for the correspondents to follow tho soldiers, Cobb crawled right after the boys and he must have made a funny spectacle he is so very fat." : Father Kain Is gqing to make the speech on Red Cross day, Saturday Sept. 21st at tho Slate Fair. lie will undoubtedly have an Immense audience to hoar him tell the story of tho past Bovera,! months, Owing to tho facl that li. E. Fontron has been called by the Red Cross into service in the oast, M. J. Firey has been appointed as city chairman ot the Baby Bond campaign. This decision was reached a few days ago and yesterday afternoon Mr. Firey met with a committee composed of J. A. Hoel and G. B. Cornell ot Kansas City, Kansas, and Bert Mltchnev. county chairman, and talked over" the situation. Mr. Hoel and Mr. Cornell who have been very closoly associated with P. W. Goebel' of Kansas City, Kansas, In this recent War Savings Campaign, have been sent here by Mr. Goebel as auditors to check over the results of the campaign in Reno county and to assist the local committee in putting over Reno county's quota. The Deficit It has been found that the county Is about ?160,O0O behind with its full Bhare and an endeavor is to be made to raise this deficiency-within a short time. Plans for this follow up campaign are being discussed today and the committee is anticipating no difficulty whatsoever in securing tho subscriptions. "The plans were only talked over roughly, yesterday afternoon," Mr. Firey sAid today. "However 1 have a few ideas which if they should he judged practical by the committee, we will endeavor to work out. The people have realized that after the Ice was broken and they really could and did save, they have found that it is apparently easy. Just what our plans aro 1 can't say for we haven't fully decided just what course we will pursue." School Districts. When the auditors were checking over tho reports from the school districts they found that they" are still several districts who have made no reports at all but the most of them have been working fine and deserve a great deal of credit for moro than raising their quotas. Those few who haven't raised their required amount will be visited and urged to do so at once. Hutchinson is and always has been 100 per cent patriotic and when ever She has been asked to put over a 1 proposition it has been done in a very creditable mannec and this campaign would have gone over just liko the others preceding" it had thqre not been considerable- misunderstanding in regai d to registration proposition and the fact that many people of the cities were away on their vacations. The country people were obliged to leave their harvest fields to attend the meeting which was proclaimed by the president when they were to make their subscriptions. SCARCITY pF LABOR.

KHAKI BILLS In a.letter to his wife received today, .Major F. L. ijommon of lho-140th regiment tells of an incident Interesting to Hutchinson people: .. "In my battalion with Captain Guy Rexroad's company /(Company C) we have just carried on a very nice little deal. We took one of the enemy machine gun emplacements and sniping post, totally destroying the whole thing and'all without the loss of a single man. It was a fine coup d 'otatt and we are feeling happy about it. When wo first arrived here.the eiiemy worried us a good deal doing this with sniping and, small raids. Now wo have them jtiBt about silenced and have gained complete control of our part of No Man's li-ud. We call it Yankee Land now. "Rexroad deserves all the credit for the action just mentioned. 116 is good and 1 consider him one of my strongest captains." Company B has officiary adopted a mascot. This Is really nothing'new in the way of an inovation but In this Instance the mascot is a little French boy about, eight years old. Sergt. Louis D. White recently wrote to his wife here telling of the adoption of the lad and told that he did not have a living relative that was known. He was found in the stricken country and is rapidly learning English and nt the same time teaching tho American soldiers how to talk French. Sergt. White enclosed two sh.irl notes which tho little fellow had written. One was in French and tho othor in English for he had translated his Mrs. Klla Phelps of 423 Tenth avo- nue east has received word of the safe arrival overseas of her son Herbert 'Phelps, 7 Battalion,' Signal Corps.
