who go among the boys during the hot-
test moment of the flgbtfng with rig-
arettes, candy and cake. Here are two

the least perturbed over the fart that
at any minute a stray piece of shrapnel
might blow their bakery to bits. Not*

which the girls enjoy wearing.
Pies and doughnuts of Salvation Army
lassies made just behind the firing lines
in France with shells whistling about
and gas masks in position, have inspired
our "doughboys" to poetic effusions.
Copies of "The Stars and Stripes" the
official newspaper of the American Ex-

boys "over there," Just received here

One issue, depicting "Yankee Nell" on
the job, shows a photograph of a Sal-
