CATHERINE BULLOCK WORKER, Each contributor can always feel - the Red Cross was a beacon t to our boya Jn a foreign , land. "tons foreign people," Is the message !f the American people from Miss herine Bullock who served with Ved Cross canteen overseas, for Months, returning to this country In j'is Bullock was one of the repre-n'a'-ives of the southern division. A. !L C, with headquarters in Atlanta.

C. ,ni New York City and will go to yVr rointa before returning to Jack lonville in November. Sailed in March. Miss Bullock sailed from New. Tork tv hst of March and on her arrival m Paris was appointed to serve In To.irs. She considered herself very fort unite in this appointment as Tours is atiout fifty miles from Paris. t town of about 27,000 population in .bo h' art of the Chateau mstrict, con- vrci the most beautiful part of Franc1. In telling of her work Miss Bullock ai'l -ii:ving Vieen assigned to the Tours eisual canteen, I reported there on April the fourteenth for duty. The canteen consisted of four quxkly constructed barracks, the worX of the local 'boys, about 30 by 51 f.-pt and was situated In the lovely Prr'tfture garden of Tours. Three b'uMings were for sleeping quarters one for the canteen proper. The cinlrn was very much like one of out beautifully shaded parks covering alout ten acres and enclosed by a wall tlve feet high. In the center a natural spring and large pond added much to its beauty and in one end was the mayor's .home and city halL Under the trees was the favorite place for the boys to take their naps or read wirtie waiting for their trains. Canteen for Casuals. As the canteen was for casuals only a guard was always placed at the gate. They were furnished by the local marines and to them we owe many thanks for their help so willing !y given in every, way, four of these bovs were always with us on K. P. liuty. The three barracks used for sleeping quarters accomodated about forty boys each, one being used for casual nurses. Between the -boys barracks wer shower baths with hot and cold water, plenty of soap and towels, Fresh underclothes could be had by turning in their soiled ones. -Homelike Atmosphere, In the canteen proper and rest room which were all in one, every effort was made to make it as home like as pos sible. Red and white checked curtains hung to the windows and the small ta bles placed down each side of the canteen were covered with the red end white checked oil cloth. In the cen ter and one end of the room stood table with chewing gum, candy, Cig artttes and matches and at the other end a piano for dancing. A small part at the back of the room was used for the rest by a counter In front of which the boys were served in line carrying their plates to the tallies. In one corner a writing desk and mail box were kept busy. Quantities c flowers which are especially beautiful in France, were kept on each tabla. Pajamas, handkerchiefs, sweaters, magazines and comfort bags contain ing soap, tooth brush and paste, small comb, wash rag. shaving brush, cig arettes and matches were distributed to every one. Special Occasions. Mothers' Day and the Fourth of July were observed. On Mothers' Day ice cream was served in the garden Irom a flower covered booth to each boy who dropped a letter to "mother In a r.ear by basket provided for that pur pose. Needless to say the basket was filled. On the fourth the canteen was decorated with a number of flags and special cherry pie with tiny American flags stuck in them were served with the meals. In the evening fireworks were distributed among the boys and displayed in the garden, and a special tar.d furnished music for dancing. To the prefect on this day was sent a cherry pit gaily decorted with the small flags, he showing his apprecia tion himself and family joining us for tne fireworks. On these special occa sions the local boys were always in vited, and th Invitation was resnrmd. 3 to in great numbers. The canteen opened in November 31 S and closed on July the fifteenth ith Mrs. Jefferson Kean directress, Tving an average ofOO men a day 'l keeping open day and night. Ten ?rls were stationed there, three work- together on eteht hour shifts. Mrs. K-an resiimed on the first of June and ' w "as put in her dace. Happy Valley. The spirit of our canteen was often ?okn of by visitors. The girls used rry effort to make each boy who tame into the canteen as much at tnv as possible and the appreciation '"own by the boys was the greatest ?Piration one can ever imagine. One the boys passing through gave it fee name of "Happy Valley. Spirit of Red Cross. I wish it were possible for every :hr, wife and sweetheart to really -oi- the happiness the Red Cross roueht to those weary homesick boys. at it meant to have a happy rican girl attend to their every 2nt after months and months with- -: the first comforts ' can never be 'ilized by those who did not witness - wontUrful response of apprecia-n- Kach contributor can always l that the Red Cross was a beacon Sht to our boys in a foreign land ong foreign people, and they were a of that light. , RED CROSS CANTEEN TELLS OF WORK ABROAD The workers themselves were al ways treated ; with the greatest con sideration by the Red Cross, and should ever feel it was the greatest privilege having been a part of this wonderful organization. " . "While over I had the pleasure of visiting Brussels, Antwerp, Bruge, Os tend and most of the devastated re gion, including Chateau-Thierry. Rheims, Soissons and other smaller places. "While at 'Tours I visited many of the neighboring chateaus." Miss Bullock Is a young woman of unusual ability, and her experience in the business world prior to volun teering for service overseas better equipped her to assume the various responsibilities of the canteen serv ice. She has a partieularly happy disposition, the ability to bridge all difficulties, and withal to . keep such a cherry smile for the boys in the service, one can readily understand why she was so popular with all the men who passed through Tours. Miss Bullock was untiring , in her efforts to provide for their pleasure and com fort, working long hours when there was need, her charming personality fairly radiating happiness.

' ' Yon Car Think and Work Better; Eat and Sleep Better If You Have Pure Blood Tour blood is made up of the food you eat, and the water your drink, and the air you breathe. If your food, water and air are bad, your blood will become impure. But, even when the best and most nourishing food is eaten, the purest of jwater is drunk, your blood may be made impure fj-om other causes. , For many years Plough's .Prescrip tion C-2223, has been used with great success as a blood purifier. Before the treatment, ready prepared, was offered to the public, it was used by a prominent physician to relieve those conditions caused by impure blood. It was his prescription for blood and rheumatic troubles. This concentrated liquid treatment contains certain medicinal ingredients which are known and used by the medical profession, and authorities authorities agree that these are some the few drugs which are of value in the treatment of rheumatic condi tions, skin diseases and troubles caused by an impure state of the blood. If you are half sick, tired all the time, have reason to believe that your blood is impure, "go to your nearest druggist, get a $1.50 bottle of Plough's Prescription C-2223 and a 25c pack age of 2223 Liver Pills; or the 2223 Laboratory, Memphis, Tenn., will send both, all charges paid, on receipt of $1.75.
