For eight weeks the 'embarkation
tramp. Camp, has boon read
ing its own newspaper published twice a
week, the rontaneze.-n Duekboard.
Recently all motor trucks at the camp
came out dworated with a new design—
a duekboard ol while on a circular rod
;\cld. although il is an open question
whether I"ontanezen mud is red.
Nurses at Pontanozen have asked per
mission to wear a small duekboard pin
or emblem.
Now p there is a movement started to
give Fontanezen men a distinctive shoul
der insignia—the same old duekboard.
The Pontanozon Duckboard, arguing for
the adoption of the insignia, tells how
•duckboards made the camp during the
very rainy reason when nature seemed
bent on making one big mudhole of Hint
part of France.
As a prominent exponent of Che duck
hoard the paper points to the camp's
commander, General “Duckhoard” Uut
!er, saying he won his duckboard title
by carrying one of the slatted planks on
his back all the way from Brest to L'Vm
lauezen during the rainy days of the
tramp's hardest trial—Just to see for
himself if men reasonably could be ex
pected to do that transport service.

The loan .started with a bang all over the

.Many small cities throughout the country
arc reported as having oversubscribed their
quotas within several hours after the cam

Detroit was the first large city to finish
the job, subscribing $100,000,000, almost
double its quota. According to present, in
