Y. M. .C. A. Orders Fruit Flavors
for One Million Summer

They may not seem so Imposing here,

won't they be sample packages of
heaven to the American boys over in
the war zone? Over there where, If
reports be true, drug stores, masquer
ading as chemists' shops, try to get by
with nothing but drugs.
France's pet drinks, champagne and
m! wine, are going to turn an absinthe
green with jealousy this summer when
the great American drink begins fizzing
along the battle front and going over
the top of the glasses. And the as
surance of at least a million frult-lla-vored
drinks as a starter is found in
the cabled order just received by C. V.
Ilibbard, general secretary of the over
seas department of the Y. M. C. A.
war work council, from the organiza
tion's official In France. The mes
sage follows:
"Send quickly concentrated " fruit
sirups for one million summer drinks."
And the Y. J I. C. A. war work coun
cil has a way of sending quickly any
thing ordered sent quickly. So it is
a sure thing that when the heat begins
to give the American soldier boys an
awful thirst, they will turn gratefully
from the trenches to the "Y" huts
where they received hot chocolate last
winter, and there they will clamor for
a "strobry," or a "razbry sody."
Possibly to assure plenty of foam,
the same cablegram ordered the war
work council to send one ton of shaving
soap, while the other creature com
forts for soldiers, among the items re
quired, were four American pool ta
bles, ten tons chocolate bars, ten ton
granulated sucar, ten tons flour, ten
tons assorted cigarettes and live tons
smoking tobacco.
