MOAT PAM w 11 flirt u wraiN SPENDING MILLION A WEEK III its Issue of July 8, 1918, the Reel Cross Bulletin, Issued nt Washington, has the following account of the hero ism of Ked Cross nurses under fire : 'Trlvnte A. C. McLeod, the first American soldier to be wounded In France, was hurt when the Germans bombed a Red CroRS hospital. He owes his life, he believes, to the Ited Cross nurse who stuck by him in the shat tered ward, and snw that he had prompt surgical attention. Two of the nurses were wounded by the same bomb that hurt Mr. McLeod, but the rest of the women, It was stated, were as cool as the men. Here Is his own story In which it will be noticed the Ked Cross nurse Is given the principal place: '"Our hospital, a British-American one In Flanders, was bombed the night of September 4, last. I was working In this hospital, at which I had been as signed to the transportation section. The patients who could do so went to the bomb-proof cellar when the nlr raid opened, but there were a number of soldiers so badly wounded that they could not be moved. A number of nurses stayed with the soldiers, and I remnlned to help. "'Suddenly, a bomb mode a direct hit nnd exploded nearby. It pretty nearly cleaned out the hospital. My legs were smashed to a pulp and I was raving with pain. I won't describe the scene about me, for that would be too hor rible. A nurse stayed by my side. She stuck to me and saw that I had prompt attention, and I probably owe my life to the Immediate amputation which was ordered. The bombing of this hos pital cost one nurse an eye, and an other a foot. The rest of the nurses were ns cool as the men. I can't say too much for the work of the Ameri can Ited Cross In France.'" Here Is something from the Central Division Bulletin, published at Chicago, which needs to be considered just now : Willing Workers Only. "The growing seriousness of condi tions respecting transportation, hous ing, et cetera, prompt the suggestion Equipped for Beach and Swimming Little children take to the water like ducklings mid ought to be given a chance to learn to swim, wherever their lot may be cast. This Is an es sential part of their education nnd might well be a part of public school Instruction, as gymnastics are, since safety and assurance nnd pleasure In the water In after life depend upon It. Some youngsters lenrn so early that they hardly remember the time. Boys, who like to travel In gangs, shift for themselves If there Is any water In walking distance that will give them a chance for water sports, and tench one another how to swim, often by he roic methods. Girls rike fine swim mers, and certainly ought to be given a chance to learn at the earliest time possible. Nearly all the bathing suits for girls under fourteen are made like the knit ted wool suit shown in the picture. The body nnd the short and narrow lint elastic skirt are In one piece the body long-walsted. Separate, close-fitting trunks are stitched to the body, a lit tle below the normal waistline, nnd the suit buttons on one shoulder with two rather large bone buttons. Cups to be worn In the water are of rubber cloth, and made tn light colors and fanciful ways. They serve to distin guish their little wearers' heads among that the war countries of Europe are no place at prvsent for persons with out definite business of actuul value to war or war relief work. "The war council of the American Red Cross announces that 'the Red Cross commissions abroad do not de sire any person to enter Into foreign service except upon the explicit under standing that they shall be ready at any and all times to undertnke any service and In any place, subject to the control and direction of the Red Cross otllclals under whom they nre serving; and that, until further order by the war council, no person shall be sent to service with the Ited Cross abroad for the purpose merely of In specting the work, with the Intention of using the results of such Inspection for lecture or literary material.' " White Silk Veils. Pure silk veils In white, rather coarse mesh, come in large rectangular shape, to be thrown gracefully over the brim of summer sailors; the mesh, quite open over the face and hat, grows finer at the bottom of the veil, and a sprawling flower design Is wov en Into this finer mesh. These white silk veils irlve n ilressv effect tn the sport or semlsport costume, ond they ' are very graceful, floating about In a summer breeze. Best of all, they may be washed In soap and water and dried In one's room overnight. If pinned out while damp over a pillow they require no ironing. White Stock Favored. For, although the colored organdie collar-and-cuff set prevnlls, It Is not the only type of neckwear in vogue at present. Very different from It. but equally popular, perhaps, is the se vere, high,. white stock now In fashion. This stock Is made from heavy mate rial usually linen or duck; It Is un comfortably high, and Is fitted with two strips at the back which are to be brought around to the front, looped over once and held in place with a stick pin or snapper. many others when the beaches nre crowded, as well as keep the hair dry. Many of the suits are blue, with bands In white nnd In strong colors. Bright green, banded with white, and bright orange banded with' black nre favorites this season. With these usu ally there are rubber caps to match, made In many ways, so that watching mothers may enslly keep nn eye on tht partlculnr head that Is her care. Most youngsters nre barefooted un less the bench Is rocky, In which case soft cloth shoes protect them. Som suits are provided with a knitted sash, matching Its border In color, and fin ished with yarn tassels, but It Is mere ly for ornament and not needed. It It a pretty embellishment, however, thai gives tone to the plain little suit, ai may be gathered from the picture. Creating Space. By creating legitimate places foi possessions that otherwise would b out of place one can gain an effect ol spaciousness nnd order, and give evel small city quarters the capacity ti hold a great deal without seemlpj crowded. Think of having the job of raising $50,000,000 and, on top of that, the Job of spending that $50,000,000 at the rate of about a million a week! William J. Mulligan has such a ob, and he Is making good at It, William J. Mulligan is the chair man of the Knights of Columbus com mittee on war activities, which has charge of the supply of comforts and attentions for the spiritual, physical and mental needs of the million and more American soldiers In this coun try and overseas. Mr. Mulligan Is a lawyer, and be fore he devoted his time exclusively to K. of C. war relief work practiced his profession In Hurtford, Conn.; he resides in Thompsonvllle, Conn. He Is a graduate of Yale law school. Among the ninny strong features that enter Mr. Mulligan's makeup, the predomi nating one Is perhaps the power of organization, nis ability In this di rection has been proved by the accomplishments credited to him as a result of his tour abroad. In France It only required CO days for Mr. Mulligan to put the entire K. of C. overseas organization In smooth working order. Be sides contracting for a grent number of K. of C. huts, he ordered that there be constructed 50 barracks, and in addition purchased a great quantity of tents which K. of C. secretaries and DEAN OF WAR tk ft then we were 'up lu the air.' We felt here was a new thing and a bigger thing than we had ever tackled and we weren't Just sure of ourselves, but we know what we ore up ngalnst now, and there Is nothing more to fear. It Is merely a question of rounding up the Germans. "It will be done In the nlr, I am sure. For years I have predicted that this war would be settled In the ulr, ond today I nm surer of It than ever. Why they don't send an Immense fleet of battleplanes over Berlin I can't understand. Three days' unlimited slaughter there, sparing only cats and dogs (I like the German cats and dogs, for they are friendly animals), would settle the matter." QUICK IN NAME HUM Quick In name, thought and ac tion, Sergt. MaJ. John Henry Quick of the United States marines Is one of that noted organization who, after be ing cited for bravery on the battlefield years ago, again comes to the front by performing vnlorous deeds In France and again being cited for bravery. He was awarded the congressional mednl of honor for his conduct in fighting nt Cuzco, Cuba, In 1898. The enemy was hiding In ambush nnd he volunteered to stand against the sky on a high crest and slgnul firing direc tions to the U. S. S. Dolphin; He stood with his bnck to the enemy and, al though bullets were cutting all about him, sent the signals as nonchalantly as If he were In camp. On June 6, 1918, he volunteered and assisted In taking a truck load of ammunition and material Into the town of Bouresches, France, over a road swept by artillery and machine gun fire, thereby relieving a critical situation, commended and cited by General Pershing.

REPORTERS The king of Bulgaria, on the bat tlefield of Mustapha Pasha, before Adrlanople In 1912, said to his chief of staff as his troops were going Into action: "Observe that Englishman passing up with the artillery. He has seen more fighting that any soldier alive." He mennt Frederic Vllllers, artist and correspondent for the Illustrated London News, who, from 1871 to 1918, has seen all the world has had to offer In the way of warfare. He re cently turned up In New York, after two and a half yenrs on the western front and a trip around the world that led him to the frontiers of India. "The end Is quite a bit off, yet," said Vllllers. "How can It be other wise when the Germnn still thinks he Is 'top dog'? It mny last several years.

Oman Bundy, wno has been plnced In command of the Fifth American array corps In France, was born at Newcastle, Ind and was a student nt De Pauw until he entered West Point In 1873. He first won dis tinction as a fighter In the Philip pines at the battle of Bud-Dajo Mount Dajo when as a major he led a column of men up the side of nn extinct volcano to attack 1,000 Moros In the crater. Fifty-two per cent of his men in one company fell, 50 In an other; still the line kept moving for ward, held to Its course by the com mander, and cleaned out the enemy.
