Etiquette of Fish Feast
In the Samoan islands, when a fish

flesh just behind the gills Is set apart
for guests whom the host of the occa

flns (a particular delicacy) go to the
king. The cuts across the spine Just

should think most desirable) are dis

the Villingen prison camp on October
6. Sixteen men made the attempt,

Paris, Feb. ... —The steady unsel
fishness of the American soldier,
shown by the way he “cleaned his
pockets’ of money before going into
action, to be sent home if he didn’t
come back, is told by W. J. Baker of
Portchester, N. Y., who served eleven
months as a Y. M. C. A. worker with
the 26th Division. His particular
charge was the third battalion of the
103rd infantry. He joined that unit
on the St. Mihiel front, went with
them to Chateau Thierry, and later
was in the famous St. Mihiel clean-up
and the drive before Verdun.
“It was just before that action be
gan,” said Baker, “that I saw the finest
example of the characteristic unselfish
ness of the boys. They ‘cleaned their
pockets’ for the folks at home. They
knew they were going up against the
real thing, and they wanted all their
money to go home in case they never
came back. In all, I was entrusted
with 8,000,000 francs upwards of
$1,500,000 before that attack. We
handled such funds through the regu
lar Y. M. C. A. service established for
sending money from soldiers to rela
tives in America.”
Baker lived with* his battalion, and
saw lively times, as the “Yankee
Division,” as it was called, was kept
