The Marines Have Landed
And the Situation Is in Hand’
U. S. marines have been landing on hostile shores for 167
years. During this long stietch of time the “leathernecks”
or “devil dogs,” as they are affectionately known, have up
held the highest traditions of the U. S. military forces. The
scrappy marines, each of whom can individually whip his
weight in wildcats, know no retreat. The U. S. marine corps
is a fighting outfit, through and through.
Today U. S. marines
are serving their country
at sea aboard cruisers,
battleships and aircraft
carriers, as well as in the
Pacific, West Indies, the
Caribbean and Alaska.
These pictures take

AMERICAN RED CROSS
CO THAT America will be well
^ prepared on the home front,
the American Red Cross has set a
goal of one person in every home
to be trained in home nursing.
I Red Cross home nursing courses
teach simple methods of keeping
the family well, and how to care
for its members in sickness. The
students—mostly women, many
men and large numbers of young
people—are also taught to recog
nize symptoms in the early stages.
This is expected to help prevent
the usual wartime epidemics.
So far in this war, more than 90
per cent of the civilian casualties
have not been hospitalized. In
stead they have been given first
aid and whatever emergency
treatment was necessary and then
A large portion of such civilian
war casualties have required
home nursing care which, due to
shortage of nurses, had to be pro
vided by members of the family.
To enable every family to pro
vide home care for the sick,
whether due to enemy action or
natural causes, immediately after
the attack on Pearl Harbor, the
Red Cross started a plan to teach
home nursing to every family.
Since our entry into the war,
more than 500,000 men and women
in nearly every county in the Unit
ed States have completed their
home nursing course. Another
quarter of a million are now tak
ing the course in more than 3,000
Red Cross chapters.
Any group of 20 or more can
form a home nursing class by
agreeing on a time and place of
meeting. After being notified, the
county Red Cross chapter will
then appoint a graduate nurse

LJ ERE is a sketch of a corner

the desk hangs a piece of applique
work that any woman who can sew
a seam can make with a piece of
natural colored linen, a few scraps
of gingham and odds and ends of
embroidery thread. The design is
of poppies, cornflowers and wheat,
with graceful green leaves. The
poppy petals and leaves are of
gingham applied on the linen. The
bright blue cornflowers, the yellow
wheat and stems are embroidered
in simple stitches.

The top was sawed off and a plain

then added at the sides and the

The machine the French use for
beheading murderers, called the
guillotine, was not invented by Dr.
Guillotine, nor was he himself exe

As long ago as the Middle Ages
there were mechanical devices for
beheading criminals. During the
French Revolution, when oppo
nents of the new regime were exe
cuted in large numbers, Dr. Guil
