TfJE WASHINGTON TIMES; THURSDAY; JULY 18.' .8. 10 U. S. BOYS PREFER .. REGULAR MONEY 7, Lad Who Lost Life Under Wheels TO FRENCH PAPER WITH THE AMERICAN ARMT IN FRANCE, July 18. Forgetting how to figure in "regular money" and learning how to calculate In "this duggon stun? Is one of the first worries of the American soldiers in France. "Regular money" Is good old dol lars and cents, nickels, dimes, and quarters, "This dutxon staff" Is the name ap plied to French francs, usually paper money, often as low as single francs, or 20 cents, for most small cities have Issued local small change currency. The Americans do not like French paper money. They say It is trash, and tsars, and la hard to count. On the other hand, the French are shocked when an American crumples French paper up and shores it In his pocket the "way they do back home." French money is to be handled In big pocketbooks, and sot crumpled. "Look at some real money once," a doughboy told a merchant, and flashed a bright new silver certificate. When he crumpled it up it? his fist to how how "real money can be used" the Frenchman almost fainted. The Americans are paid almost en tirely in French mone,y and they are getting used to francs, though they all agree "a franc's so small It slips through your Angers like water." ijjfc" "!V fNgjg HAPPENINGS IN SOCIETY President on the links Japanese Prince and Hi s Asso ciates of Red Cross Commission Feted HAROLD BURDETTE.
