Commander Evangeline Booth, lead
er of the Salvation Army in the Unit
ed" States, has been suddenly called
upon to furnish 800 additional far
work women for France. The request
is contained in a report just, receiled
by her from Col. William A. Barter
Of the Salvationist forces, whom she
sent to France over a year ago to fes
tablish hutment and general war re ief
work with the American troops.
"We will do all w can to fill tills
demand," said Commander Booth wl en
discussing the approaching Uni ed
War I Work Campaign, "and the m ed
itself should impress the Amerii an
public all the more with the absolite
necessity for sustaining and enlarg ng
the war relief work of the seven or
ganizations, besides the noble Bed
Cross, now merged for a drive for
funds. Each Is a vital cog in a vlist
machine for human relief, and each! is
lndispensiDie, serving its particular
elements in its own way. .
I "The Salvation Army was born In
hardship, reared in privation and
trained to . every phase of human tais-
ery and how to cope with It. Perhips
that accounts in some degree for the
success our .work has attained auditor
which We are thankful.
; "We are of the common people, dnd
we toil on a practical basis. We learn
ed the lesson of how to do it fn tbe
Boer war, when we stood at the fade
of Britain's troops and weathered It
out to the end. We have been tised
by fire, and the mothers and. fatlfera

attributed the continued . health,

Upon this spirit of service and

months to come. In the past year we
have . carried out an export progf am,
the magnitude of . which is almost be

new demands that have come; with
the liberation of nations freed from
German oppression, j our exports must
be almost doubled. Instead of 11,820,

has been confident1 that it could nit be
done. Contrary proof is immediately
at our door, and pur people havje al
ready demonstrated their abilitjy to
mobilize, organize, endure and prepare
voluntarily and efl-clently in many di
