Billy Jones By WRIGHT A. PATTERSON. r Billy Jones--maybe your son or the son of a neighbor-was in tile front line trenches in France when the Ger. man bombing party was driven back. His enthusiasm to get the Boches car ried him over the top of the trench, and at the edge of No Man's Land a Hun bullet got him. A comrade-maybe your boy-crawl. ed out into No Man's Land and brought ~illy .Jbnes back to the American trenches. Other comrades carried him back through the maze of trenches to a dressing station, where his wouuid was cared for. A mmedical department ambulance carried him on to the field hospital. From there Billy Jones was taken to n the base hospital, and there a Red Cross nurse-your Red Cross ndrse is tenderly, carefully, smilingly nursing him back to health again so that 'me may not have to pay the extreme sac rifice that we-that you and I and otir neighbors--may enjoy the blessings of freedom. ). There are half a million of these boys of ours in France today and more going "over there" every week. S'They are there to wage the supreme conflict of the world witj the brutal forces of autocracy that democracy, 1 our heritage, may not perish. We want these boys of ours to come buack to ls, and it is the Red Cross men and women-c-our Red Cross men and women-who will bring thousands of them back who would not otherwise come if our dollars will but keep them t' there to minister to these boys of ours. They are but doing for us what we cannot do for ourselves. WHAT THE VICTORY OR DEFEAT OF GERMANY MEANS TO EVERY AMERICAN.
