Chestnut Hill Service House f Wynne Discusses Yesterday's Launching Summer Vaca tions and War Work Away From Home wimp. rviMfnnt Hill Service has not allowed the hot weather to Interfere 1 with Its work for one minute. Last week '' the canning department put up 433 quaits of vegetables and fruit, which was going l some for last week. If you remember how hot It was. The children all help wun me work, and feel terribly Important trotting around the kitchens. Mrs. George D. Mc Creary has charge of this work. ThlB week a campaign for nurses Is going on In Chest nut Hill, and there Is an enrollment office at the Service House, where they hope to take In a lot of names. Mrs. Francis D. McGrath, who has had charge of surgical dressings up there, has been appointed a supervisor at the Independence Square auxiliary of the Red Cross, so Mrs. n Korrls Williams Is golns to take her place. It is surprising how much surgical dress Ing work can be done when a group of earnest workers get together. There are classes every Wednesday night now up at headquarters. 1815 Chestnut street, and al- though they are rather small classes some times, they do accomplish a good deal of work In the two hours and a half that the workroom Is open. n 'Not content with working from day to day in Chestnut Hill, they are making plans for lectures In the fall, and will begin enrollments In Septembor. Miss Umerlck will have charge of these courses, which will be for the Italian girls of the neighborhood. They will be taught cooking and bread making and general housework, arid 'at the end of the course will be given certificates In general household efficiency. Wouldn't you feel proud and Important If you had a piece of paper certifying that you were generally householdly efficient or generally anything efficient. Margaret .Mellor. who has been secretary at the Serv ice House, has resigned to do the same kind of work along broader lines, and her place has been taken bv Mrs. Allene C Martin, who has been organizing secretary throughout the State In the Liberty Loan campaign Slg. Mellor. Margaret's brother, Is down in Washington now, by the way, with Mr. Hurley, of the ship ping board. Mrs. Mellor. who was Helen Lee, daughter of Mr-- Hdward C. Lee, is down at Cape May this summer with her two babies A GOOD many people have loft town this month, although most of the people who aie away have gone just for a ' flew weeks instead of the usual few months. J War Work rnnnot bo left even in hot '' weather, and everybody realizes It. Kven those who are away are still working, for In Cape May, you Know, there is the Allied teahouse that Catherine Cassard and her "mother are running, and that keeps Emer gency Aid aides busy down there. Then In Atlantic City, at one of the armcies. there is a canteen that works all day Pun day for men who go down there over the week-end, and want home-cooked food. Women who aie there for the summer "stand all day In the hot kitchen rooking "ham and two eggs" for the genial men In uniform who stop In and ask for it In their usual pleasant manner. Of course, ""there are Red Cross workrooms In every i town In the country, so you can be sure of ''-finding war work near at hand wherever you go. A number of people are leaving this week for a few weeks of cool weather "and sea breeze Mr and Mrs. Francis King -"Walnwrlght, of Bryn Mawr, are going to Northeast Harbor for this month, and Mrs. jj.cander Randall, of 1717 Locust street, will leave soon for Cape May ' Mrs. Ran yilall was Miss Helen Wood, of Portland, Ore. Katherlne Ogden Is also going to .Cape May. Mrs. Arthur Emlen New bold and Miss Dorothy Newbold, of Farlelgh, Chestnut Hill, expect to spend the month .it Saranac Lake. -, , I T T CERTAINLY was a warm reception tf Bjrave to the President and Mrs. Wilson, jrasn't it? I don't wonder those people jive.re overcome by the heat down there at the launching, and it's funny that more of them didn't collapse. It was an exciting J,mom4nt when Mrs. Wilson, looking so JiweU In her good-looking dress and hat, I broke the bottle and christened the huge ihlp, and the cheers of the crowd were -.quite worthy of the occasion. The Prcsl dent seemed almost as much Impressed rttbS$$jl$$&ti as the crowd was with flblm; Smiled a,t everybody as If it were "a peijjSTfy cool day. TlVTARGARET is the oldest of a family of ""; seven, and the faults of the "chil dren" annoy her terribly. She Is fourteen. -Xt, present she Is visiting a friend of her 1 "mother's in Beach Haven, and having a wonderful time. The rtjst of the family at home write frantically every day, telling her about how Johnny was almost bitten , by the dog down the street, and Mary has Jone lima bean In her war garden, and so ) forth, and one letter ends, "Johnny sends 1 mo iuvc, .'wij zenus ner love, amy senas t his love, Edward sends love. Elsie .sends "love, and 'don't forget to bring home a box of salt-water taffy." The next letter closes by saying. "Bobby sends love. Mary ends love, Billy sends his love, Edward Bends his love, Elsie sends her love, and be sure to bring home a box of salt-water taffy." After receiving six letters with exactly the same ending, Margaret felt that the limit had been reached. She sat down ls iand wrote to mother: "I'm having a ner. fectly lovely time and it's nice to hear from everybody all the time, but please make the children stop asking for salt-water Ii iuy. pcL-uuse miss j sees all the letters ryknd It embarrasses me terribly," ' NANCV WYNNE.
