Usually mustaches are placed on the upper Up. and spectacles ar worn, bars reaching back over th ears to keep th spectacles In place also serv to bold th false face on. More than two thousand French Pol ios bsT been disfigured so terribly that "facial reconstruction" Is neces sary before the men can be seeu In public. Usually these soldiers are th victims of th Germans' liquid flames or bluing oil, though many were wounded by high explosives and shrap nel. All of these men will be treated CTentually by skilled French surgeons who bare made wonderful strides cut Jflg, grafting and restoring shattered countenances. Many Must Walt. But there ar only a few savants . capable of performing these opera tions, and the treatment la very slow and tedious. As a result only a small proportion of the "mutlles," ss the dis figured soldiers are called, have re ceived treatment and many may have to wait two and three years before their time comes for the reconstruc tion. "rftk Maynnrd Ladda fitlse faces ar designed to be worn by these men dur ing the time that they are waiting for their treatment to begin And during the course of operations that will be performed 'upon them. The copper masks will last Indefinitely, and may be washed and cleansed with soup and water. Rubber and gelat'n manic have been experimented with In the past but they have not f.Iven satisfactory results because of tUoir fragility. Their falsity was alwr.ys plainly apparent because they wvre not constructed by "experts. "Three mirtlles' have been nMgnort to me to begin on," sold Mrs. Muymird Lndd, In her studio at 70 bis.

So the false face will not Include a forehead. It will have a chin like the soldier had before h was wounded, and It wilt run back to his throat. Then there . will be the regulur nose and the mask will run up to below the eyes. The man will wear siMH-tacles, which will help to hide the Juncture of the niask and the fle.h. Noies Reproduced. "In caws where s man's nose re mains It will fit snugly luslde the space left In the noso on the mask which will be iiiudo lurjie enough to ncconi- j uiixlate tho real member. In case where the nose baa been shot away, fl.ever ond there nre many Illje that the man's normal nose will be reproduced exuetly as It was before and there will be perforations through the noHtrils for hliu to breathe.

"Cnpt Derweot Woed. an English - "culptor, originated the Idea of mak ing thes artificial faces for men whose appearance would be ao ghastly that they could not get work or even itippear on the street because of their frightful wounds.

She lived In Rome for some time before the war, and has been In 1'urls several times since hos tilities broke out She has don many heads and busts for well-known people In Italy, France and the United States.
