and refinement after their long tours
on duty; "canteens" for girl workers
in newly created war work factories;

fundi unless you believe in it.,!' said
Miss Starkweather, "P.wt when you
understand the objects you cannot
help" believing in them. In every in
stance we have been asked by the
government to do the work we are
doing. Commandants of flie canton
ments have asked for the hostess
houses. The military authorities have
asked for the nurses' huts, In many
pUces these activities are already in
