RUM AND THE ARMY.

[j\DVT.]

APPEALS BY LORD KITCHENER AND HIS SISTER IX Till: 'DAILY NEWS' AND 'LEADER.' Of London and Manchester (page- 4), Wednesday, October 28, 1914. A SOBER ARMY*. TO THE TDITOR. Sir.—Yesterday my brother, Lord Kitchener, made an appeal to tho public asking that all who desire the efficiency and well-being of our troops would retrain from treating them to " drinks," or setting temptation be/foro them. I quote from his words : Tho men who havo recently joined tho coloi'3 are doing their utmost to prepare themselves for active service with the least possible delay. This result can only be achieved if by hard work and strict sobriety they keep themselves thoroughly fit and healthy. Lord Kitchener appeals to the public, both men and women, to help tho soldiers in their task. May I, as his sister, supplement tliis appeal by asking the men themselves whether they will not, during the period of the war, abstain from all intoxicants, except when such are ordered by a doctor? I think I am right in saying that in no way could they give my brother a truer proof of their loyalty to his wishes than by making this promise. May I suggest that if the same pledge were taken by those left behind, then the men who have rallied to the colors would be linked to their wives, parents, and families at home by a bond which would be for the good of all. FRANCES E. J. PARKER. Alexandra Club, 12 Grosvenor stree*, .October 27,
