of the Army.
That the work which the Red Croat
is doing in France to alleviate suffer
ing among the families of Frenchmen
who are fighting at the front repre
sents a saving of 1,600,000 men is the
opinion of William Allen White, noted
writer and owner of the Emporia
(Kan.) Gazette, who has just returned
"It Is not probable that our army lh
France will get into the fighting to
any large' extent until next spring.
The real war work that should Interest,
the people of America this winter is
of an economic rather than of a mili
tary character. . It will be carried on
by the Red Cross in France, its pur
pose being to relieve needy conditions
in tbe homes of French soldiers who
are in winter quarters in the trenches
al the front.
Comfort Women and Children.
"It Is felt by the military officers of
both nations that nothing cuuld do
more to keep up the morale of 'the
French soldiers during the coming
winter than to bring comfort to wom
en and children at home. The soldier's
knowledge that his family is being
well cared for will take a great load
off his mind and hearten him to stand
up against privation which otherwise
might break his spirit and render him
of no physical use.
"Maj. Grayson M.-P. Murphy ot tbe
Red Cross, Gen. Pershing and Gen.
Petain of France are working in uni
son to perfect the plans for the relief
of families ot soldiers, tbe military
commandera believing that it will be
of the greatest benefit to both armies,
It should be kept in mind that every
soldier who is saved this winter means
the saving of an American boy when
the big drive begins next spring, Some
American boy will have to ttke the
place of every Frenchman who l
kiNed or who breaks down under the
"This particular relief work means,
therefore, that French soldiers will be
saved for work in the spring and
American lives will be conserved at
the same time.
Petain Is Doing a Great Service. 1
"Gen. Petain is having French of
ficers go right down the lines and
ascertain from every soldier whether
he baa any worries on his mind con
cerning sickness or want at home. Re
port will be made to headquarters
weekly and not a single case will be
overlooked In the Immense undertak
inB- Special attention will be given to
th treatment and prevention of tuber

will be an accompaniment of the gen
eral relief. Scattered through France,
many of them In soldiers' homer, are
tome 200,000 refugees - from the war

the spirit of France bright until the
military forces are ready to deal their
smashing blow against German autoc
racy. Thus it it I tay that the great
struggle of the winter will be the eco

tically will fight the American fight
until our boys take their places on the
firing line next spring."
