the state of mind of the soldier who,
when he has settled down td stay in
a camp some months, is informed
that he will be sent to France that
night. We had just distributed all
the dish towels and cloths collected
during the past year and for which
the Red Cross had never called, when
there came an order for 600 dish
towels and 150 dish cloths to be de
livered by June 15. And not to be
purchased with chapter funds, but

why"; ours but to ,£ll the order with

Mrs. John H. Powell, who superin
tends the knitting for the division,
made a spicy little speech at the insti
tute which every knitter would have
enjoyed—if it didn't happen to fit her
case. Mrs. Powell illustrated her talk
with some wierd garments which had
actually been sent in for our poor
soldiers. She said:
"The women of America as they
work day after day making surgical
dressings, sewing on hospital gar
pital garments and knitting socks and
sweaters, form a part of the great
army of defense against the unspeak
able evil which threatens the world.
This reserve army, like any other
army, to be most efficient must lay
aside all individual opinions and pref
erences and even the habits of many
years. Here a peculiar thing appears.
It might be expected that in all this
mighty army of men and women, old
and young, some would rebel and re
fuse to submit to necessary rules, but
is it hot young blood that refuses to
get into line? We are forced, re
luctantly, to report to the contrary.
"While our young men go into the
camps and cantonments and to the
front, submitting themselves to every
detail of military discipline and our
young women make surgical dress
ings and hospital garments, every
fold and hem and tape according to
rules laid down, how is it that the
Mothers of Israel can refuse to do
their part except in their own way
and according to their own fancy?
No matter if they did knit for the
boys in '6l and their families ever
since Conditions to be met today are
entirely different, and all equipment
must suffer change to correspond.
These good women will surely get in
line, but they are slow about it.
"The quality of the knitting work
received at the supply warehouse of
the Northwest division has improved
greatly in the past six months, but the
toes of the socks do not improve as
they should. It is possible to make
a good toe which is not a Kitchener

Parcel post packages for prisoners
of war in enemy countries may not
be sent by organizations or societies
and only one package a month may
be sent. If more are received the one

others held in New York pending
communication with the senders,
with whose consent such excess pack
ages may be sent to other prisoners

during that month. Lacking this
consent, the packages will be re
turned to the senders.
Only the following articles may be
included in the packages: Belts not
made of leather; hair, band, tooth,

the Kitchener finish have lumps and
ridges calculated to make blisters on
soldiers' feet. As about 40 per cent
of socks received do not have the
Kitchener toe this means that out of
75,000 pairs of socks to be furnished
by the Northwest division before July
20th, 7,500 will have bad toes. This
must not be. To avoid it the North
west division insißts that every sock
shall have a Kitchener toe and that
every knitter shall be a good Soldier

duration of the war.
"Word very recently received from
Washington requires that all sweat
ers shall measure 26 inches from fold
to edge. They should be from 15 to
18 inches wide.
"Socks should be 11 inches from
edge to the beginning of the heel.
The heel may be either the strap or
triangular kind."
