veterans in the government hospital

compensation and in many instances
tho fact that the wivts are allowed
to make poppies enables the families
to be Self-supporting when otherwise
they would be practically destitute.
The wives and families come to the
little village of Oteen to be near their
loved ones during their illness and
often their last days. Before' the
wives are allowed to make poppies
they are required to undergo a rigid
physical examination and be declared
free not only from tuberculosis but
all other communicable diseases, 'iney
are limited in the number of flowers
they are allowed to make so that the
work will last a longer time and give
