Breckenridge News from her nephew, Edward Maurice Camp, a midshipman of the U. S Navy ahd who has been in European waters since last April. Midshipman Camp is the son of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Camp of Owensboro. So full of patriotism was he that when America became engag ed in the world war, Camp ran away from home and enlisted. But his fath er brought him back on account of his age: then several months later the parents gave' their consent and the young sailor boy, who was only 17 at the time, enlisted again. History repeats itself always, and this sailor did nothing more than his grandfather, Captain William H. Sargent did when he was a boy. Mrs Gardner said her father "enlisted be fore he was 21 years af age, in the Civil War, July 1861 as a private 'in Company K. 25th Regiment, Indiana Volunteer Infantry, serving until ypril 25, 1862 when he was discharg ed for disability contracted in service.

HIS RESIGNATION - re-le- ct Glas-g&- w, " Wo. - U W wk. - Applications for discharge and petitions for the return of employees are pending in tens of thousands, with small likelihood that action on the bulk of them will be had with'in the next thirty or forty days. Letters voicing resentment over the delay are being received in increasing numbers by members of Congress as well as by officials of the War Department. Many of the letters to the members of Congress, besides telling of the circumstances that make needful the return of the soldiers to their homes, declare that the men have failed to get permission to file applications for a discharge. Some Real Griveances. Some of the stories in the letters are told evidently for the purpose of arounsing sympathy among Congress men, others are from' individuals whose circumstances are known to officials here and who are in a position to vou.ch for the truth of the statements. One large cattle raiser in the North west who was drafted last summer to return to his home in order to look after his property interests this has been put in a permanent training battalion and will be retained in the service for an indefinite, period it was stated,. ' . , In his application for a discharge he pointed out that under the present worldwide need for food he can render a much greater service on his ranch than in the army. . Other letters have come from men who have complied with all of the requirements in asking for a discharge yet are held in the camps with not prospect for an immediate release. One instance cited here is that more than 200 men in the aircraft production bureau were held for five days until the Colonel in command could obtain a certain rubber stamp which he needed to mark their discharge papers. Red Tape A Check. In another case about 200 men were held in a Western camp for three weeks until the commanding officer could learn the name of the paymaster from whom, they received their last pay checks. Repeated telegrams to the War Department'for this information failed to bring a reply. The worst conditions apparently are to be found in the camps of the Southern States, where soldiers without regard for the urgency for their return home or need for them in are being placed in permanent training battalions ahd will be held in the service until the War Department has put forward its new programme for an increased standing army and Congress has taken action in the matter, So far Secretary., Baker has declined to discuss his plans this line.

After being bid farawell by a large crowd, we boarded a pullman train of 13 coaches and at 5:45 we saw Camp Taylor for our last time. Speehding through the beautiful country of Ohio, Indiana via New Albany, Mt.

We followed the West Virginia and Maryland boundary line most all day Tuesday. In one state one hour and the other the next. Goes Through Washington. I learned that we would go through Washington, Philadelphia and Baltimore at night. , I sat up until 12:30 Sept. 3 to sec our country's capitol and then the IJ. & O., our road and the train we were traveling on merely went through the outskirts of the city. We just could see the dome of the wounderful mansion. Being on the fire fighting force at Camp Taylor, I was the more easily awakened than usual so when heard a fire gong I was on the floor from the tOi birth of my car and hardly awake. Making my way by the guard, I was able to tell we were in Philadelphia and she was having a real fire. At this place we changed engines and also roads going over the P. & R. through New Jersey, and be . III Washington, a ferry boat to Hobo-keArriving at the large piers about 8 o'clock. The Red Cross gave us bon bons and the best coffee 1 ever tasted. Those poor Red Cross' girls would push their way through 500o soldiers and see that each one got a bon bon, cup of coffee and cigarettes. At ten o'clock we went aboard our ship the Mallory, "and she will be remembered." n. The Voyage. We were confined to the ship although we did not sail until the morning of Sept. 8. Everything went off nicely excepting one of the seaplanes which was guarding us burned and fell into the sea. Monday I felt a little shaky, but able to look for subs and I believe I saw one that morning. day I was real Well, sea sick. On the 11th, 17th, and 20th we had sub attacks. The ont on the 20th fired one shot at one of our destroyers but missed her. The ship I was on was the flag ship of the 14 who composed the convoy. She was always in the center unless she had to give oil to some of the chasers. On Sept. 21, at 9:30 we moved into the harbor of Brest but did not land until 3:30 or until the tide came, We hiked 5 miles to a "Rest Camp" "Everything but rest." Pitch Their Tents.

The Germans demanded that the flaps be hauled down. The Poles refused to acquiesce, whereupon the Germans brought up machine guns and begun tiring In the streets, driving hack the crowds and dispersing the Polish troops. Finally tho German ofllcfnls took down the Hags. Meanwhile the Poles reassembled and began to return the German Are. The Germans pro voked nnother Incident by trying to prevent Paderewskl from going about the streets. The arrival of Paderewskl and British and American otlleers nas created much here. The hope Is expressed that their arrival will stamp out iiolshevlstn and prevent anticipated trouble In Warsaw. ' Since tho ndvent of the latest wheat :rop the only limitation upon Amerl-:nexports to Europe has been the ihortnge of shipping. Between July 1 n STEPHENSPORT Schlm-nielfen- g, Vn-Ten- n. and October 10 we shipped 05,US0,305 bushels. If this rate should continue until the end of the fiscal year we will have furnished' the Allies with more than 237,rO0,OO0 bushels of wheat and flour In terms of wheat. The result of Increased production nnd conservation efforts In the United Stales has been that with the cessation of hostilities we nre able to return t6 a normal wheat diet. Supplies that have accumulated In Australia, Argentine nnd other hitherto Inaccessible markots may bo tapped by ships released from transport service, nnd European demand ior American wheat probably will not exceed our normal surplus. There Is wheat enough available to have a white loaf at the common tnble. But last year the tale was different. Only by the greatest possible saving nnd sacrifice were we able to keep a steady stream of wheat and flour moving across the tfea. We found ourselves at the beginning of the harvest year with an unusually short crop. Even the most optimistic statisticians figured that we had a bare surplus of 20,000,000 bushels. And yet Europe was facing the probability of a bread famine and In Europe bread Is by far the most Important article In the diet All of this surplus had left the country, early In the fall. By the first of the year we had mannged to ship a little more than 50,000,000 bushels by practicing the utmost economy at home by wheatless days, wheatless meals, heavy substitution of other cereals and by sacrifice at almost every meal throughout the country. In January the late Lord Rhondda, then British Food Controller, cabled that only If we sent an additional bushels before July 1 could he take the responsibility of assuring his people that they would be fed. The response of the American people was 85,000,000 bushels safely delivered overseas between January 1 and July 1. Out of n harvest which gave us only 20,000,000 bushels surplus we actually shipped 141,000,000 bushels. Thus did America fulfill her pledge that the Allied bread rations could be maintained, nnd already the American people nre demonstrating that, with an awakened war conscience, last year's figures will be bettered.

For the present year, with only the European Allies to feed, we had orlglnnlly pledged purselves to a program that would have Incrensed our exports to 17,500,000 tons. Now, ; to feed the liberated nntlons, we will ; have to export a total of not less than 20,000,000 toas practically tho limit,, of loading capacity nt our ports. Reviewing the world food situation, we find thnt some foods will be obtainable In quantities sufficient to meet nil world needs Under a regime of economical consumption. On the other hnnd, there will be marked world shortages In some important commodities. Return to Normal Bread Loaf. With the enlarged .whea't crops which American farmers hnve grown, and the supplies of Australia, the Argentine nnd other markets now accessible to shipping, there are bread grains enough to enable the nations to return to their normal wheat loaf, provided we continue to mill flour at a high percentage 'of extraction nnd maintain economy In entlng nnd the avoidance of waste. In fats there will be n heavy shortageabout 3,000,000,000 pounds In pork products, dairy products and vegetable oils. While there will be u shortage of about three million tons In rich protein feeds for dairy animals, there will be sufficient supplies pf other feedstuffs to allow economical consumption. In the matter of beef, the world's supplies are limited to the capacity of the available refrigerating ships. The supplies of beef In Australia, the Argentine nnd the United States are sufficient to load these ships. There will be a shortage In the Importing coun tries, but we cannot hope to expand , Dramatic Episode of Voyage Was Passage ef British Cralser and Through Kiel Canal. London, Dec. 30.
