Would they take us, do you suppose, as stenogra- pnersT I am really In earnest, ana would love to go this fall. I am lust afraid that no arm Trill -want to I be bothered with femallans, other than nurses. Would you mind telling me If you think there Is a way?" ., The War Department believes that even stenography so close behind the lines Is the work of men.

Get it for John Galsworthy's powerful short story, "The Juryman," and for the other splendid fic tion by Eleanor Hallowell Abbott, Sinclair Lewis, and Wallace Irwin.
