Page Fourteen BADIN BULLET ^ THE WOMEN’S PAGE i-' Scenes on Champs Elysees The Champs Elysees is gay enough this spring. The bursting buds and wak ing flowers of this most famous of the avenues of Paris are opening to a new season, a season of peace. Its birds sing louder. Each morning the grass is a little greener. Spring flowers start in colorful rows, pink, violet, and gold, like spritely ladies of the ballet awaiting their cue to scamper into a dance. Upon the greensward, countless children play. They are happy children—not like the children of yesterday, whose smiles were dulled by the specter of war. They are glad, and the spring has come to France. With them is a woman, an American, in the uniform of the Red Cross. She is directing their games, and if we are any judge of their gyrations there seems to be a decidedly American air about their play. Isn’t that group over there playing “Drop the handkerchief?” The small, blue-eyed girl with the ’kerchief in her hand is going about the circle chanting the French equivalent for “A- tiskit, a-tasket, a green and yellow bas ket,” and how they squeal with delight and jump up and down when she finally drops the handkerchief and the race be gins. What breathless laughter! What a chorus of exclamatory French, as if all the birds in the world were twitter ing at once! Under that blossoming tree there are four girls “jumping rope,” turning “dou ble dutch.” The little one with the red hair has missed, and “takes an end” under protest. Here are some more like pixies in a sandpile. These are younger THE SECREST-SLOAN DRUG COMPANY ALBEMARLE, N. C.

And there are races that foster the spirit of competition and fair play. These are always exciting events, and are watched with keen interest by the bystanders. This is another field in which the Red Cross has assumed its responsibilities in behalf of the world’s children. The French children have taken up the Amer ican games with delight, and interested persons in France are now clamoring for the establishment of free municipal play grounds, patterned after the American system.—Red Cross Magazine.
