This odd notice from THE STARS AND STRIPES was printed on the front page while most of the A.E.F. was still in training. The word was out by this time that the Campaign Hats they were issued back home were out -and so to counter the gripes, the army printed this balderdash to put a "nice spin" on the "tin pot".
It's not a helmet -- it's "a Steel Stetson"!
