Jericho" No Joke
Jerusalem, Oct. 10.-Allied soldiers
in the valley of the Jordan know now
how really were unkind persons who,.
in pre-war days, "wished them in Jer-
icho." To these fighting men, Jericho
and its dust-covered environs mean
heat, flies, mosquitoes and snakes,
mildly advertised by the Turks in
this message set up opposite the Brit-
ish lines: "Don't fear an offensive
from us; we will come over later when
you are all dead."
This summer, day after day, army
thermometers along the Jordan regist-
ered from 105 to 125. Yet with scarce-
ly a breeze, and these dust-laden, the
Australian and New Zealand horsemen
holding these lines, bringing from a
temperate climate a reserve of health
and vigor lacking in the natives, with-
stood the ordeal. It is the second or
third summer that tells.
The flies and mosquitoes of the val-
ley know no pity. In the early days
of the fighting, when it was impos-
sible to take the necessary sanitary
precautions, they bred in myriads, but
now pools of stagnant water have been
eliminated and large tracts of scrub
burned., .As a result, the number of
malaria cases has been surprisingly
low.
Of the minor evils, the snakes are.
the worst, but due to the precautions
take~n by officers and men, casualties
from shake-bites have been compara-
tively insignificant, despite the num-
ber of the reptiles and their venomous
species.
Onecaptured Turk had been at-
tacked and bitten by a serpent four
feet long, and as he lay on his cot in
a British hospital, he told how he had
strangled the reptile and then fainted.
His nerves were shattered by the inci-
dent, and medical officers said that it
would be years before they were again
normal.
Ft. Sheridan to Become Base Hospital

I Passing Of The
Old-Time Locks
Have you noticed a bunch of fel-
lows around the campus who closely
resemble escaped convicts? Probably
you have. Well, anyway, don't turn
them over to the authorities. They are
not criminals, they are merely S. A.
T. C. boys who have had their hair
clipped to the regulation inch and a
half designated by the army and navy
authorities as the proper thing.
We were sitting in a barber shop the
other day when one of these chap-
pies came in who wears his hair
about 10 inches long and either in a
straight line from forehead to collar
or flowing down about his eyes which
ever his state of mind might recom-
mend. When the good looking young
man stepped into the chair ,we thought
that we recognized him.
When he came out from under the
gas, however, he was practically un-
recognizable. The hair on the upper
extremities of his head was cut to
a thickness (or thinness) of two finger
breadths, while as for the rear and sid-
al portions, he will have to wash
them when he washes his face. Pull-
ing his hat down past his ears, he
sneaked away. He would never be
the same man again.
