the overseas men, they "push off" into

All Is peace In New York's toughest
district since the war. A year or so
ago any person who wandered through
the "Gas House" district, on First ave

minus his watch and roll and with a
battered countenance. Many were the
actual and alleged breaches of the
peace laid to the young manhood of
this section of the city. It ran the
■gamut of everything from riot to mur
der. Today all this is changed. Since
the "Gas House" gang has donned the
khaki there is an air of refinement and
culture in the district. Men neigh
bors meet on friebdly terms and
clothes-line fights and feuds between
the women are only memories. Gone
is the old order of things material.
Fights have given way to celebrations
in honor of the lads from the district
now fighting in France. There are
171 of them from this section and
the other night a service flag was un
