We are making many socks here In Canada, says Miss MacAdams, but not too many. Enormous numbers are needed because the life of socks ia short. Labor and soap are scarce with the result that socks are washed badly in hard water, they shrink and harden, aad hundreds of socks can never be worn again. While tho ma terlal In them Is aaved and used again, it is necessary for us to keep up the eupvly. Miss MacAdams' praise of the Red Cross waa high". Today It is doing thirty tlmaa aa much as in 1915 and that with absolute efficiency. An ac 'curate and detailed account is kept of all supplies and they are watphed from the time they are dispatched till they are distributed. The Red Cross can always be drawn on In aa emerg ency and is handled in a most capable manner. Arrangements have been made by which the next-of-kin may visit their wounded in France, also many Canadian hospitals have been built there, entirely manned by Canadians, for the French. , The supplies are well-distributed and the convoys handled largely by women. Nothing tho Red Crw melres can be aold, taw salaries are paid and thus expenses are kept down. It does great work In supplying comforts to tho sick which they would not otherwise receive and we ehould support It to the utmost. Another Interagting fact was her statement that the C.A.M.C conaid ers the best ot skill none too good for its soldiers, hence does not use V.A.I), nurses In wards. Tnese are only to be found in Canadian private bospitala caring tor tha slightly wounded or in convalescent hospitals where skilled nursing is not ao necessary. Tba R.A.M.C. cannot obtain enough skilled balp and here we find moat of the V.A.D. nurnes who are doing splendid and heroic work. While in France Miss MacAdams saw the men of the loth Battalion, many ot whom are from Lathbridge. At the end of bar splendid lecture a vote of thanks was moved to Miss MacAdams. Musical numbers were given by Miss Minnie Hasel and Mr. Young. nearby, In which were tba Americana. Fifteen hundred followed the toad of their daahlng brigadier out Into the swirling battle line, where they were strung over a front of 1200 yards, against whlcii hords of Germans wero being flung, ft seems almost inconceivable that these defenders, brave unto death though they were, could have been able to hold the long aector, bnt lhey held. The enemy advanced in force and hurled themselves timu and time again at the British line in this region, but they found no weak spot. This composite force stood, as gallantly and aa well ax their comradea to the right and to the left. They clung on for many hours until the regulars came up. This is a sample of the fighting spirit which allied sol diere are showing in this time of stress. A NOBLE SPIRIT This incident is more spectacular, but hardly finer in epirlt than that of aeven British soldiers. These lada had been borne in England on leave, and on landlnK at a channel port In France they ' could And no transportation to the front. Did they alt down and wait? They did not. They tramped almost every foot ot the way to th� battle lines to take their places beside their hard-pressed comradea. READILY OBEY ORDERS With the French Army in France Mar. 31.-The cloaeness of the co-operation between the French and British commanders and troops waa well Illustrated by an incident whleh occurred recently at the aouthern part of France. The Germans wero observed taking up positions on a hill and a small detachment ot Canadian cavalrymen, who the previous day found themselves with the French army corps, received orders to occupy the summit. Dismounting, they clam-bored up the hillalde, but shortly-after were driven off.. The commanding general reprimanded them for retiring and'ordered them to return Immediately to the hill. The Canadians mounted their horses and rode to the summit under a withering fire and bald the position until Joined by a larger farce.
