American and French women working
in the War tone have become "a fae j I
tor of Importance in the organization j
of ffctory." writes Sir Harry John
B. aton, in the Evening New.

ever such devotion shown?" "In the'

Another question he propound* is,
"What has become of women's
nerves?" adding: "They seem not'
specially distressed over the drum'
