representing the Fund in Paris and who
directed this distribution of the kits.

transportation from Havre to the

fort kits have now linen delivered to
the men in the trenches.
The cable decluri's the soldiers were
delightp.l wild the kits and that the
corncob pipes were novelties they did
not at first understand. Suggestions
from the soldiers, nt the. request of the
Americans were that as warm weather
is setting in, some of the heavy arti
cles for winter wear be eliminated
from the hits and more socks, pipe
stems nnd toolh powder he substituted.
Apropos of this, the iinuoiincement is
inn. Ic by the l,n Pavel to Fund that
tin' contents nf the hit will soon be
changed. The articles requested and
numerous others lire to he sent.
Milliard Harding Duvis, a member of
the La I'nyelte Fund executive com

tii the list of nrticles for the new
kits. His experience is eight different
wars and under all sorts of weather
conditions on the firing line, fit him
admirably to know the needs of the
soldiers and what articles ure of
practical use to them.
