St. Nazal re, France, July 15.
French brides of American soldiers
on their way from -Franco to their
new homes in America are entertain
ed in the Hostess house here until
they and their husbands are ready
to go on board a steamer. Thus far
81 of these newly-made American
wives have been taken care of in this
temporary home for brides.
The work of earing for them is
conducted by the. Young, Women's
Christian Association with five work
ers under the charge of 'Miss (Mary
Fay. The house was opened May 1,
and is located in a grove of trees
outside the limits of the men's camp.
: The wires many, of , whom had
never been more than 10 miles from
their homes before are met at the
station wtth an automobile .and tak
en to the Hostess -House where they
are given a thorough physical inspec
tion, teeth examined and any neces
sary work to be done on them is
here done. (After this they are' given
the opportunity to bathe, change
their clothing and are assigned a bed
in one of the spick and span donna-1
bories. Their life from then on until
the time they board the boat Is
chiefly occupied In learning the Eng
lish language, sewing, and exercises
and recreations of various kinds In
the mornings and with their hus
bands in the afternoons.
Ten days is the average time each !
girl spends in this camp. From it she
is taken directly to the 'boat where
she again meets her huaband, he
hailing been transferred from his or
ganization to a casual jionvpany so
that they can take the same .boat
back. That the government is doing
everything In Hs power to make
their life while till in the army s
happy one is very evident.
A month ago it was estimated that
accommodations for 65 would be
ample for this camp. This was leas
than a month ago. Today there are
accommodations for ISO and more
barracks are being buiR. The 15th
cavalry alone brought 51 newly mar
ried men and their wives. And now
that the service of supply troops are
going through here so fast it is sus
pected that the Hostess House may
be swamped, for these troops, unlike
the combat troops, have been sta
tioned in one place most of their
time over here and have had the op
portunity to win and wed some dain
ty French girl.
WANTS LUXURY TAX TAKEN
