WHO WAS THE GIRL
FROM I*l* 1.1, IX, WISH.' In the Issue of December 5 of the Pembervllle (Ohio) Leader was pub lished a letter from Sergeant Claire H. Speck, dated Somewhere In France, In which he said: "This Is, indeed, * small World, after all. The other day, 1 was In the V. M. C. A. and up at the 1 desk was a nurse who was transacting some business and Who gave her ad dress as Pullman, Wash. i pricked up my cars at this and informed this patriotic "American girl that I knew a man living there by the name of George Schroeder, and she said 'I know him.' Before she had time to "come to" 1 told her 1 also knew the Emersons there and she said, 'Yes, they run a large mercantile store.' She thought I was from Washington and was greatly surprised to know that I hailed from the Buckeye state, and, very lady like, she said, "Isn't It queer, that we should meet across the continent?" It's too bad I can't tell my Pullman friends the nurse's name, but' I didn't ask her for it and, naturally, she didn't ask me for mine. My reason for not getting her name, etc., etc., Is military."

For two year? she has been college dieti tian and a teacher in the home eco nomics department As head of the college dining hall committee, she deserves considerable credit for hav ing provided the best, and most rea sonable food, taking war prices into consideration, the halls have known for years. Miss Dodge was chief of the com missary department for the men in uniform since their first arrival in June, 1018. Too much can not be said of her supervising and planning the work in the kitchens. She planned and equipped the kitchen of the new mess hall in a most efficient manner. In student life, Miss Dodge was one of the best mixers. She was a friend to everyone. She will be missed most by the girls in her classes, perhaps, and the loss of her services as supervisor of the dining halls will bo felt by many others. Everyone who kgew her, knows how difficult it will be to replace her. and everyone keenly feels the loss. You are a better American if you keep your War Savings pledge.
