C. to establish a canteen here we were ; at first overwhelmed at the Idea, bat we were soon in possession of stack of literature sent us from Aed Craam Alvldnn hMdmmrtM i. Unta that made everything very clear. aiao maae us realise just what an under taking we had before us. The Pensaeola chapter appointed my two assistant eflmmsntfantm Mm t ti MeKetU and Mrs Stephen ee. x nen we iirai appoiniea two captains, Mrs. Lee KeeDonen and Sirs. W. H. Watson, . and w went -down to headquarters here and were sworn; in. We, and ery one In' this work had to take a Very binding oath, because of the Information ' we - received about troop movements. Uy two captains filled their teams with splendid workers. Mrs. Mac DonelTs team 1 was composed of two lieutenants. Miss Stella Avery and Mrs. Wllmer Hall, and the privates were Miss Evelyn Thornton. -Miss Marjorlt Tonge, Mrs. D. H. Shepard, Mrs. J. F. Dusen bury. Mrs. J. H. Plerpont. Mies Harriett Carbine and Miss Annie Chaplne McLane. Mrs. Watson had on her team, Mrs. L. DeM. Blocker and Miss Modiste Harsls. lieutenants; prlvats. Mrs. Leslie Part-ridg-e. Mrs. J. W. Bullock, Mrs. K. C, Maxwell, Mrs. F. , W. Marsh. Mm. W. k. Hyer, Mrs. B. Harvey. Mrs, Eastman and later Miss 'Mattle Whiting; and Miss Eonannen.' , .. The captains ef these teams were ae ery proud of their workers, that they named them after those celebrated French and Scotch regiments "i'te Blue Devils" and "The Ladies From Hell." We soon found that our work was growing so rap idly that we needed two more teams, so appointed Mrs. C. Bay Mitchell, captain of one. with. Mrs. R. A. Hyer and Mrs. James Maegtbbon as lieutenants. The Privates 'were Miss Isabelle Grant. Miss Orr, Miss Mabel Gonzalez, Mrs. : Herron D'Alenrberte. Mrs. J. Galleger Mrs. J. R. MeLane and Mrs. FVB. Hagerman. Our other team had two captains. Mrs. C W. Lamar, who resigned her captaincy to serve as a private, because of her Liberty loan chairmanship, was succeeded by Mrs. J. 8. Reese; with Mrs. Thomas W. Brent and Mrs. Walter B. Coney lieutenants. Her prtavtes . were Miss Haley, Mis Francis Brent. Mrs. J. H. Brown. Mr. Crutn. . Mrs. Horace Simpson nd Miss Mottle Blount; Mrs. O. H. Anson was one of our reserves. Our first experience was serving tralnload of draft men and they certanly enjoyed the Iced tea and sandwiches. Right here I would like to say that 1 can't imagine any more thrillinsr sishl than a train of fifteen coaches of soN dlers, and how they always cheered when they saw the Red Cross canteen. They always called us nurses. We would have The good things to eat and drink for them, and good cheer, I really think they appreciate ed our cheerful words and smiles more than the eats, and that's saying a good deal.: -t- -i Mr. K. O. Saltmarsh gave us a room at the station, and we met the morning an-1 afternoon trains every day, aside from the troops trains, and on Christmas day we had a tree,-that we kept lighted for & week, and kept presents of home-made cake, and candy, nuts, raisins, etc.. piled around it that we gave to every man who earn 3 thrpush; also turkey sandwiches and" coftee. We had two workers there an hour- at a time all Christmas day. starting at five In the morning and keep ing the room open until twelve that night. Kvery fay proved the falsity of the statement htat women are never on time. Wheneer I t ecc'.ed notice of a" troop train X would phone the captain of the team on duty, and when I would get to the station that team would be drawn up to give me, the salute when I entered. Please" lcn"t get the idea that canteen work is r-lxy. It-cause it wasn't, it was hard steady worv. mine sometimes began at four in the mcrnlng an4 ended -it twelve at night. Never mind how badly it stormed, our workers did their duty with never a grumb), end their husband were Joe as nice. toi?. Never mind now tired we were, when we heard that "Three cheers for th Ri.-d Cross" and saw a traintoa I of smiling -faces that we had helpod to niako happy, why wo were ha py. too. ,:. . JCvory day we , wopld have from four to sixty " soldiers and sailors on the regu lar trains. The Army and Naw club gave us the f j ee use of their rhower baths for tie mn. and the laJi'.x In town were 1oj y about g.vteg thair ataamobiles, and i ttear the boys say, 'A sh-jwer bath an.l an automobile ride; oh, boy t isn't that heaven." . . ,. rc had some very eomp!imensr letters from Red Cross headquarters about the line of work we were doing, and I must say. In spite of hard work and long hours, we enjoyed It all. and I could write about the service men, and our canteen workers for the next month. During the "Flu" we did great work at the station, helping the sick, and the pa rents of the boys who came here to see their sons who were ill at the Army and Nay hospitals; also outsiders. We have always given Information and help to eery one who asked for It. We were amozed at ourselves when we found we had given information to rive thousand people between October and March; by that I mean civilians. Everyone at the L. A N. station did everything in their power to help us. and really seemed proud of the fact that they had a Red Cross canteen there. Officer bp? s ft I i r 1 W 1 X. J M II -VIM.
