WAR SERVICE LETTERS

THE SIERRA CLUB's PART IN THE WAR During the period of the war the club endeavored to perform such of its work as was possible under the adverse circumstances which existed. It also tried to keep in touch with its members who had entered the service and send them a little cheer by means of letters from members at home. That this was an excellent plan is amply proven by the enthusiastic appreciation expressed in reply.

We are proud of the service performed by our members. Professor Vernon Kellogg, one of Mr. Hoover's right-hand men, is now in Europe, having recently visited Poland. Mrs. Marion R, Parsons has been in France for several months in full charge of refugee work in the province of Landes. Mr. Clair S. Tappaan is with the Y. M. C. A. in France, Dr. David P. Barrows and Albert H. Allen are both majors in the army. Professor A. G. McAdie is a lieutenant-commander in the Naval Aviation Service.

All of the foregoing either are or have been recently directors of the club. Our honor roll of members is so long that individual names can not be mentioned, but as complete a list as possible will appear in the forthcoming issue of the BULLETIN.

Besides those who were in active service, the members at home did what they could to bring about a speedy victory. The club itself bought Liberty Bonds and War Savings Stamps to its financial limit, and its members formed a Red Cross Auxiliary and a War Correspondence Committee, and the local walk collections are regularly used for Belgian relief, while personal subscriptions resulted in raising over $200, which was sent to Mrs. Parsons to bring Christmas cheer to some of her refugee children.

EXCERPTS FROM LETTERS OF MARION R. PARSONS, NOW WITH THE

RED CROSS IN FRANCE "Wasn't it kind of fate and the Red Cross to land me here in Paris just in time for July 14th? We got here late Saturday night and rode up through the darkened streets in a 'camion,' with all our baggage piled in with us. I wondered in case of an air raid how we ever could get out to find a shelter—what a scramble over that mountain of luggage it would have been! However, nothing happened. In the morning Miss McNeal and I started out early to see the parade. A lucky combination of chance and cheek got us a splendid place in front of the Lille statue in the Place de la Concorde. We saw the decoration of the Strassburg monument, and the whole parade passed through a great open space right in front of us. A very pompous gendarme looked severely at us several times, for we were a little outside the crowd he had caged in behind the statue, but our uniforms and a firm front carried the day. Nearly every soldier was bedecked with flowers, and nearly all the allied nations were represented in the parade-a tremendously impressive spectacle, with a big offensive ready to break any minute less than fifty miles away.

"Monday was kept as a holiday too, and will stand out longer in my mind as the day when I was first ‘under fire.' La grosse Bertha spoke again after a silence of several weeks. I was sitting in front of the Louvre when the darn thing went off. It sounded mighty close to me, but missed me by about a mile, I afterwards learned. For a few minutes I thought I didn't care much about sight-seeing anyway; but then I reflected that I might just as easily be hit in the hotel as in the park and might better enjoy the privilege of seeing something first. Big Bertha does not seem to be thought much of, anyway. A woman near me merely shrugged her shoulders and said, 'Encore,' and went on with her reading. We all went around as if she weren't barking at all. ...

"I worked at the hospital again yesterday-a terribly hard day. I had to tell one boy that his leg was amputated-he hadn't known it was gone. He was so brave about it for all he was so terribly weak and sick. Later, when I was giving him some soup, he said, “They seem to take a lot of trouble about caring for you here, even if they know you're never going to be good for anything again. They seem to try just as hard to make you get well.' I had all I could do to keep from crying..

“I saw Mr. McAdie too in London, to my surprise, and Patty Cosgrave Murray, who seems the same as ever. Here I have met Harry Hand and Elizabeth Gray Potter and Alice Leavens so far. Alice Leavens is returning to America tomorrow after a most eventful year here. She was at Havre when the Germans made their March advance, and had to evacuate with her refugees and without her possessions.” ...

July 21, 1918.

"Since I wrote you last I've had only one day of hospital work, with some very slightly wounded but thoroughly tired-out Sammiesnot at a real hospital, but at a refugee home which had been called into temporary service. I went there to inspect the refugee work as part of the preparation for my job, but took off my hat and rolled up my sleeves and fell to work bathing, undressing, feeding and jollying a bunch of lads so utterly weary and worn out they were just like tired, sleepy children. I had to wake one of them three times before even the idea of food would penetrate. 'Gee, isn't it quiet here!' he said, and fell
