gives interview!
(From Sunday Portland Journal)
Decorated by the Daughters of the
Empire for service in the volunteer aid
detachment of Queen Alexandria's
imperial nursing service, and by
Queen Mary herself for her work in
Queen Marys National Guild, Mrs.
Mildred Campbell, American-born and
democratic, has returned to Portland
after working for three years side
by side with the nobility in the Bri
tish Red Cross hospital.
Mrs. Campbell joks quite as hand
some in her military uniform as does
the major, who is down from Van
couver, B. C, Major Compbell serv
ed for four years with the Scottish
regiment in France. Red Cross Re
gulations forbade Mrs. Campbell
from poing to France also, so she
spent the war in English hospitals
and in the Queen's giuld, sharing in
the uncertain feeling" of existence as
did her husband.
Life in London Uncertain
For life in London was uncertain,
especially in the early days of the war
Thp maior was spending a furlough
with Mrs. Campbell n the day that
30 or 40 German airplanes sanea ov
er Tendon, bringing destruction in
their wake. The Campbell's fled to
a convenient cellar. It was the bus
iest time of the week, at 11 o'clock
Saturday morning, according to Mrs.
Campbell, when the crowds on the
Streets were the thickest. In one
week, while Mrs. Campbell was on
duty at the hospital, three Zeppelins
passed over the insitution.
"The Red Cross work has been ab
solutely magnificent," declared Mrs.
Campbell, enthusiastically. "In the
beginnig, often a soldier would leave
England in the morning and return
the evening of the same day, wound
ed. Later, as the line advanced fur
ther toward Germany, it sometimes
happened that a man arrived who had
received no attention since the first
aid treatment given some 15 days
"The hospital work was hard, but
titled women entered whole-heartedly
into it, doing kitchen work, scrub
bing floors and attendng to the most
menial tasks with more patience than
many of those who had always been
obliged to do such work."
Presented to Queen.
It was in May, 1917, that Mrs. Camp
bell represented America in a page
ant which .was the mest successful
given in London, resulting in her be
ing presented to the Queen and Prin
cess Mary, The queen was a really
charming woman, according to Mrs
Campbell, who was intensely inter
ested in anythinghat wis American.
Later Mrs. Campbell received a pri
vate letter from her, bearing the
zeal of Buckingham pallace.
Mrs. Campbell also has a book, pre
sented to her by Queen Alexandria,
in whose service she worked.
Two years of Mrs. Campbell's Red
Cross experience was spent in the hos
pital and the balance of the time in
Queen Mary's Needlework guild.for
which she was awarded a medal.
Much of this time she spent with pri
soners of the war department.
The Campbell's expect to leave on
Sunday evening. Mrs. Campbell ex
pects to visit relatives in Indepen
dence until the major receives his
charge, which he expects very shortly
then they expect to return to Port
land where Dr. Campbell will resume
his medical profession.

Some marvelous cases of the sur
gical are described in the "Medical
Suppliment" compiled by the medi
cal research committee and issued by
the war office.
In one case a soldier had his thumlr
shot away, and as the hand would U
almost useless without it, the sur.
geon substituted the man's own big
toe for the IosJ thumb.
In another similar case the thumb
was replaced by the second toe.
"The patients obtained in this way
movable thumbs that in every respect
were practically useful and natural
in appearance, especially in the case
of the great toe, -since this was ex
ceptionally small and dexterous."
Even more wonderful was the re
placement of four lost fingers by four
toes. The toes, were partly cut
through and the stump of the hand
being attached, the periosteum (the
fibrous tissue that covers the bones)
of the toes were sewn to that of the
finger stumps. The tendons, soft
parts and skin were alsa sewn togethA
er and then the hand and foot were
fixed in plaster of paris.For a month
the patient lay in a very uncomforta
ble position.
At the end of that time the toes
were completely separated from the
foot, and soon after the patient had
a useful hand. At the, same time
he could .walk almost as well as
ever, with a strong and freely mov
able great toe,

The Enterprise is now located two
doors south of its former location.
Independence will soon be the scene
of much military activity as a com
pany of State Guards will be perma
nently located in this city, due to the
efforts of Captain Stidd and others,
who have labored hard to accomplish
this result. Last Friday evening a
meeting was called and Colonel May,
Major Reynolds and a number of oth
er army men were here to help organ
ize the company. About seventy-five
men have enrolled and1 after some dis
cussion, officers for the new Company
were chosen with the following result:
Captain, C. L. Stidd.
First Lieutenant Grant McLaughlin
Second Lieutenant Ira Mix.
Chaplain Dr. Dunsmore.
Company physician Dr. Hewitt.
With the organization of a military
company in this city, the state will
defray one-third of the expense for
the erection of an armory ,the county
and town the balance. All officers
and men will receive an annual com
Densation to be paid by the state, as
well as the rental of a suitable build
ing, including uniforms, equipment
and rifle range which will also be paid
for by the state. This will mean a
yearly income to the town of over
$10,000. As will be seen, it means
much to our town and every citizen
ought to put his shoulder behind this
enterprise and give it their united
support. The company will shortly
be mustered into service when it wiH
be subject to the state and national
call at any time.
