Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 26, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETIinRIDGE DAILV M1�*ALD SA rURDAY, OCTOBER 20. lift "BRINGING UP FATHER" By G.

TjTUs Rayiiiond Cobb, United States army, leaned wearily against the fence in front of the WTiite House In Washington. Resplendent in his new uniform, with his puttees and shoulder -bars glistening -in the sunlight, he presented the appearance of a typical army officer who has seen service and lots of it. His good right arm was working automatically when I first came upon him. First he would touch the visor of his cap and then allow his arm to ^rop listlessly to his side. This performance was repeated every few seconds, and the unaccustomed exercise had Cap'n Ty hanging on the fence. "This is the life," he said with apparent cheerfulness as he saluted a boy sc6ut. "It's great stuff, but I'll never be able to play baseball again. .ANDY. THE RADIATOR MAN WILL REPAIR YOUR RADIATOR-AND GUARANTEE THE WORK.

Saluting everybody in the world requires a special course of .training, and I haven't reached that yet. For two days I have saluted a million people, and stiil they come. But 1 am proud to be in the service and will do niy utmost to make good. 1 am learning every day and will be ready for service in Trance in a very short time. "There is one thing I want to correct," he resumed as he automatically saluted a passing policeman and a couple of ice men. "That report about my'going to Camp Humphreys is all ^Tong. I'm not going there because it would. take months to finish the course. I object tb that.' I joined the army to. fight and do my bit. and the sooner I "get over there' the better I will feel. I am not trying to avoid military duty by taking up some soft snap. I am ready and anxious to see active service, and would rather resign than stay in this country while the fighting' is going on. """I expect to be in France within three weeks or a month. 1 have been ordered to go to New York for further training and it will be only a short time before I, sail. "I am in the field offensive service, and" my work has to do with the practical application of gas on the enemy. We tirst study the lay of the land and then determine the method of applj-ing the gas to the enemy. It's very interesting work and I enjoy it. The officers are kind and considerate and are taking special pains to teach me the work properly. "When I joined a big league ball club tc 1905 I surely was proud of my uniform the first time I wore it. I believed It to be-the most beautiful thing in the world and felt bigger than the president. Right now, however, I wouldn't change places with any one. Nobody ever felt more proud of a uniform than I do at the present moment, and, believe me, I will work harder than 1 ever did on the ball field." � ' � " " Cap'n Tyrus has not been eased into i sinecure because of his reputation as a ball player or through political pull.
