not expect to serve over the firing line;
but theie is a variety of ways in which
a woman with a flying temperament
could make herself useful.
Airplanes could be used for locating
and removhip wounded from the field,
and for carrying certain cases from the
clearing stations to hospitals surely a;
sphere in whir, women would run no
risk of becoming unsexed.
English women have no lust for blood.
They don't want to kill, but they do
wunt t help their men. The wish, is so
fervent that it becomes almost an ache.
Thus they ore already an integral part
of the Britis), army. They cannot be
excluded from aviation on logical
grounds. It is no use putting forward
the sentimental argument, because that
is all in .their favor.

rooms received an urgent appeal from
the American army for 200,000 first aid
packages to be suplied to American sol
diers. Each of these packages was, to
contain 12 articles, the whole order
thus involving tho manufacture of 2,
400,000 separate dressings, together
with an enormous amount of labor in
connection with the careful packing
and shipment of the packages. This
work, moreover, was to be carried on
without interfering with the regular
duties of the wokroouis in supplying
their usual hospital supplies. It wa a
big order; but the executive commit
tee telegraphed its answer immediate
ly: "We will deliver first aid packages
as requested, at rae of 1",000 per week
beeinnincf immediately." From the
firRt week, this rate has been exceeded !
and the entire order has now been fill- i

army authorities!.
Some time ago, the workrooms made
grnngements with Mine: Caton de
