Lieut. F. S. Flick, '17L. who is serv-
ing with the American troops "some-
where. in France," recently wrote a
letter to the assistant secretary of the
Medical school dealing with interest-
ing traits of the French people.
Extracts from the leter follow:
"So far, we have struck a bunch of
miserable weather. It has rained ev-
ery day since we have come here and,
of course, that dampens the spirits of
"We are continuing to run into new
experiences. This afternon five of us
walked to a town near here, and we
had the time of our lives. We have
all that good time trying to talk to
the natives. Whenever we go to
a town we have several things to buy,
and going into the shops is all kinds
of amusement for us. Today one of
our men tried to buy some chestnuts.
He asked the lady how much they
were. Well, she just chattered-that
was all. Finally he showed her some
money. She took some of it and
brought back some change. Then she
proceeded to measure out chestnuts.
She used a big measure and it took all
of us to carry them away. And so it
goes in our dealings with the French
people. I am getting so I know a few
words and sentences and so occasion-
ally succeed in getting something
"In France they do not drink water.
On our trip across the country we had
a terrible time getting some. These
people are raised on wine, and they
seem to .consider it a necessary ele-
ment to live. Wine is bought for 25
cents a quart, and champagne, which
costs $4 and $5 a quart in the United
States, costs only $2.50 or $3.00 here.
Of course there is water, but it seems
these peopletdo not even consider it,
and in the villages you will find one
cafe right after another.
"Another peculiar thing in this
country is their system of meals.. In
the early morning they have a 'petit
dejeuner,' which means a little break-
fast. That consists of btead, jam, and
coffee. Then at 11 o'clock they eat
breakfast, which is more or less of a
regular meal. Then, I believe, they
have their dinner at 1 or 2 o'clock.
We do not get that meal, but go from
11 to 6: 30 o'clock in the evening, when
we have supper. The French clock
system, by the way, runs up to 24 o'-
clock, so that our supper comes at

Murray street, and Chester Dana, 90
North Boulevard, have been quaran-

one of the first to contract the disease.
Five persons were sent to the con-

Twelve smallpox patients are now

it will be necessary to° either put two
patients in a room or to obtain larger

unexepected by the health authorities
as it is just time for those who were

signs of the disease. Fourteen days
are required from the time of ex-

ENGLISH CHILDREN BEING
ENLISTED TO AID IN VICTORY
London, Oct. 9.-For the first time
in the conduct of war, according to
the National Food Journal, the official
organ of the ministry of food, the
children of Britain are being fully en-
listed as an aid to victory. The officials
have found, the Journal adds, that the
children of the elementary schools
show acute mental receptivity con-
cerning questions of food shortage,
and are "full of heroic' resolve" to
avoid waste, "which is all that is at
present required of them."
Representatives of the ministry of1
food have been addressing the child-'
ren of the schools, telling them in
simple and direct language that the
food controller's demand for economy'
is directed to them as much as to the
older people. The children are en-
couraged to eat all they desire, but
to avoid wastefulness wherever pos-

It has been proved that the old "go-

the men much quicker than the cor-l
rect military style, used at parades

elsewhere, have adopted the "atten-
