looking fine and is very much satis
fied with the company that he is now
in. This week's Stars and Stripes
says that a new leave area has been
opened up on the Brittany coast, so
from now on we will have the choice
of two summer resorts. We also had
a report this week that Claude Polly
is in Paris visiting his brother. We
hear that he is a top-sergeant in an
infantry company located near there.
I suppose you remember me writing
you this spring of the order that we
had, to take at least two baths a
week, and that punishment was to be
meted out to all who did not get their
names on the bath report at least
that often in one week. Well, every
thing has been changed now, and they
say the hot weather is to blame for it
all. At the present time they have
established a guard at the bath room
door to see that no one takes a bath
at all, at all. Last week sometime
the waterworks system gave out, be
cause the well refused to give up its
gold any more. Water has been so
scarce that we have had to put an
ambulance on the job to carry drink
ing water. For two weeks we haven't
been allowed to take a bath and from
the looks of things it will probably
be that much longer. Of course, the
river is close and free to all who
want to use, but who wants to take
a bath when they don't have to.
The last of the new buildings start
ed a couple of months ago will be
completed this week and the big new
hospital will then be going full blast.
But alas, ten new buildings have al
ready been ordered and will be here
in a short time and another large
force will be detailed to put them up
quickly. The past week has been the
biggest week we have had. All the
hospital beds are working double time
and the patients who are not very
sick or who are on the road to recov
ery, have been put in pup-tents on
the hospital grounds. In fact, we have
over 200 patients sleeping outdoors.
A few weeks ago Major Clark told
me that his ambition was to have a
thousand patients, and now we have
more than that by considerable. But
the major is anything but a happy
man, for he is kept on the go all the
time trying to figure how to put four
men in one bed. So far we have been
able to take care of all who came, but
our limit has certainly been reached
and if many more come we will soon
have to give up. The great increase
of patients is not due to the big drive
the allies are making, but to the im
number of soldiers that are
mense
arriving here every week from the
States.
Sept. Friday an
came through that we would have to
pay every patient in the hospital cas
ual pay for August. As there are
more than 1200 patients, and we had
to get their names, make up the pay
rolls, have them sign .t, get it all
O. K.'d by the paymaster and then
pay the men and get a receipt from
each one, it was a big job. We
worked all Saturday night and by 7
o'clock the next morning had the pay
rolls ready for signature. The signed
payrolls were delivered to the pay
master that morning about 9 o'clock
and late that night we received the
money. The men were paid ^arly
Monday morning.
Our hospital is still growing, due
to the increasing number of soldiers
passing through this camp from the
THE TRUTH ABOUT CANDY
How Much Candy

Where Shall We Stop to Stay W'thin

<f
That's a question which puzzles many of ns.
We all know that we must "go easy" on sugar, as It Is our duty
to conserve.
And candy contains some sugar.
So how can we know how much to eat?

re must not forget that our system needs some

sugar, and this the Food Administration recognizes.

We must remember, too. that some people like their sugar In
coffee, some In fruit, and some In other ways. If you like yours in
the form of candy, eat some candy—as much as the Food Administra
tion permits: a certain share is yours—one pound per month.
The Food Administration is keeping in close touch with the
sugar situation and allotting the candy manufacturers as much as it
can see its way clear to allot.
Everyone Is being asked to save on sugar; the candy manufac
turers have been asked to save half of all they formerly used.
