WORK IN FRANCE LAUED
DOROTHY PEEL SERVED WITH
WELLESLEY GRADUATE
IN BREST
Dorothy Peet, '15, who was sent to
France during the war by the nation-
al war work council of the Y. M. C. A.,
receives glowing praise for the invalu-
able service she rendered th'ere by
Miss Anne Watson in her report on
the work of the brouncil.
"The joy of joys in Brest," Miss
Watson writes, "was the Y. M. C. A.
cafeteria after the Y. M. C. A. women
became associated with it. Originally
a restauint was conducted at the
Flag hut and another at Rue de Tra-
erse. These were under the complete
control of 'Y' men. They were not
especially well managed and the
monthly deficit was heavy.
"In December 1918, it was decided
to introduce some women into the
plan. Accordingly Miss Peet and Miss
Walmsley were assigned as assist-
ants to Earl Crookham, who had
charge of all the restaurant section.
The Rue de Traverse restaurant was
changed into a cafeteria and put in
complete charge of the 'Y' girls. There
'were f0 in all. So successful was the
change, so capable the women, that
Mr. Crookham decided to turn the res-
taurant at the Flag hut into a cafeteria
also and in April the twoplaces were
merged into "one.
Places Were Sloppy
"Formerly in these places there were
sloppy, insolent French maids, who
sought large tips from the boys and
were often not of the most beneficial
influence. The table appointments
and physical appearance of the rooms
were not attractive. The kitchens
were unsanitary and the roaches and
rats lords of the place. Of waste there
was a ' plenty. The whole aspect
changed, however, with the coming of
the Y. M. c. A. women into authority.
"They entered into the game with
the spirit of a bride setting up her
new menage. They scrubbed and clean-
ed and toiled as an object lesson to
the careless maids. They made pud-
dings and dresings of all dry bread
crusts formerly discarded. They made
doughnuts and biscuits and became
famous for strawberry shortcake. The
rooms were thoroughly cleaned every
night.
Many Meals Seved
"The girls attended to the laundry,
marketed (with the chef, and served
for hours at a time. It is estimated
that 680,000 ,meals were served in the
cafeteria from January, 1919 to Nov-
ember, 1919.
"This would be an enormous busi-
ness for a year in any large hotel in
America, with great kitchens, all mod-
ern equipment, and a large working
staff. But here, four months of that
work was done in a'kitchen about 20
by 30 feet, with no store room, and
two 'Y' men besides the chef and ten
girls most of the time doing all the
serving and the making of the des-
serts.
"Mies Peet left for home on Oct.
25 and also Mr.,Crookham. These days
are closing now, but there are still
700 men a day being served with Miss
Walmsley still on the job.
Much Work Done
"It has been a tremnendous task and
I do not believe a more thoroughly
successful activity has been carried
on anywhere overseas than this, for
out of all this heavy work, the place
has been home to the men and the
one spot they looked forward to in
town, where always would be found

the girl with the smie for them. Said
lone man tensely one day, Food, great
stuff, but it's what these Amercian
girls hand- out with it, the glad hand,
yes, honest to God, a real hand!'
"I think we can say 'Hats off to
these American women,' who have
been happytand willing to serve in the
S. 0. S., regardless of acclaim or,
blame, but have actually worked for
the joy of the working. Miss Peet and
Miss Walmsley should be cited and
given the royal purple for theirgreat
.loyalty.".
