Another reminder of the apprecia
tion in which the French people hold
the work of the American Red Cross
has been received in San Francisco.
This time it was in the shape of an
autographed picture received by Law
rence W. Harris from General Petain,
Commander-in-Chief of the armies of
the North and North-east, and a let
ter of appreciation to all San Fran
ciscans for their splendid work in con
nection with the Red Cross.
General Petain extends to all citi
zens of San Francisco his "personal
recognition and that of the French
armies, of the devotion with which all
have co-operated in the magnificient
work of the American Red Cross."
The photograph and letter were sent
through Oscar Beatty, another San
Franciscan in Red Cross work in
France, and the son of the late Judge

The following is an outline of the
procedure to be followed by persons
planning to send one of these parcels
On receiving one of these Christ
mas Parcel labels, it should be pres
ented at the nearest Chapter, Branch
or Auxiliary headquarters of the Red
Cross, where the holder will receive
a carton. These labels are not ex
pected to reach this country before
November 1st, by that time each Red
Cross Branch will have its allotment
of boxes based on the number of sol
diers in service overseas from that
These boxes may be filled with any
combination of articles, except those
on the list barred by the Postal of
ficials. ARTICLES BARRED BY POST OF
1. All spirituous, vinous, malted,
fermented or other intoxicating li
quors. 2. All kinds of poisons and all ar
ticles and compositions containing
3. Explosives of all kinds.
4. Inflammable materials, includ
ing friction matches.
5. Infernal machines and mechan
ical, chemical or other devices of com
positions which may ignite or explode.
6. Liquids or liquifiable articles,
fragile articles and other admissable
matter when not packed in accordance
with the requirements of the Postal
Laws and Regulations.
7. All other articles which may
kill or in any wise hurt, harm or in
jure another, or damage or deface or
otherwise injure another, or damage
or deface or otherwise injure the mails
or other property.
BEAR THESE FACTS IN MIND
WHEN PACKING YOUR CHRIST
Nothing should goin a Christmas
Parcel which will not keep fresh from
the time of packing until Christmas
Dried fruits and other food products
should be packed in small tin or wood
en boxes, one-quarter to one-half
y Hard candy, including chocolate,
would probably be safe in tin foil or
heavy cardboard, but no soft choco
lates or anything that could possibly
be crushed should be used, as the re
maininig contents of the package
might be spoiled thereby.
Several dainties packed in oblong
tin boxes holding each a quarter of
a pound will provide a better variety
for a package than a larger quantity
of a single confection.
No liquids nor articles packed in
glass should be placed in the pack
When the package has been packed,
it should be taken, unwrapped and un
sealed, together with the label and
sufficient stamps to the nearest col
lection center designated by the Red
Cross. After the package has passed
the inspection of the Red Cross re
presentatives as to contents and
weight, and has been wrapped in stout
paper, the Christmas label bearing the
address of the man for whom it is in
tended is placed on it. The person
sending the package, in the presence
of the Red Cross worker, is required
to affix stamps sufficient to carry it
to Hoboken, N. J. The Postal charg
es are to be at the rate of fourth class
or parcel post zone rate. A label cer
tifying that the inspection has been
completed by the Red Cross is placed
on the package, which is left in the
custody of the Red Cross until deliv
ered to the postal authorities.
THE SINS OF
The sins of OMMISSIONS are just
as great as those of commission. If
you can save a soldier's life or keep
him from the horrors of being gassed
by a little effort in saving your
fruit seeds and nut shells, and fail to
do it, what is the result? Aren't you
Scientists in Uncle Sam's employ
have discovered that carbon made
from specified seeds and s"hells will
absorb poison gas more specificially
than other carbons, so the Gas De
fense Division calls for peach, apricot
plum, prune, olive, cherry and date
seeds; and coconut, Brazil nut, hick
ory, walnut and butternut shells. Our
boys are still Hunting Huns and find
ing them; but the Huns leave a death
trail of gas which must be faced in
safety. It is up to the household,
the restaurant, hotel cannery every
place these materials accumulate,
Your Red Cross Chapter will tell you
all about it.
In Buffalo Park, just outside Paris,
where Buffalo Bill once thrilled Par
isians with his "Wild West" stunts,
Red Cross automobiles have replaced
the old Deadwood Coach. Where the
Indian ponies and bronchos used to be
tethered, lorries and ambulances and
trucks await the call to duty. One
who listens to the tale of 20 ambulan
ce drivers who went out from the park
a few days ago to face four days and
nights of battle, and brought back
