tures, by arrangement of the Mon

with the Montana Red Cross, are be
ing delivered in 20 cities of the state.

fact that Dr. Haxo is a native of that
country, a land that is so intimately
bound up in the history of the United
States and a qpuntry that has suf
fered so much in the present war,
makes the coming lecture one of abid

Dr. Haxo can tell of the actual con

the Butte boys will soon be, fighting
by the Ride of the French soldier for
democracy and humanity.
