Half of Nurses at Base Hospital
Are Guests of Charlotte People
for Delightful Outing.
A party of Charlotte citizens took
half of the nurses at the base hospital
for an enjoyable ride over Charlotte
and into the country Wednesday afternoon.
The ride for the nurses was
planned by Clarence O. Kuester and
at hi? request 20 or more owners of
automobiles volunteered the use of
their machines for the ride.
Leaving the base hospital promptly
at 4 o'clock, the nurses were brought
to the city and taken through the residential
sections, after which they continued
into the country. Returning to
the city they were taken to the Red
trusa utiiiecu at uic UUUUKI it uger
station. There a number of Red
Cross canteen workers served them
sandwiches, and then they were returned
to the base hospital.
As only half of the nurses can leave
the hospital at a time, it will be necessar
yto give another ride at a later
date for those who could not enjoy
the trip Wednesday. Mr. Kuester said
he will look after this, and see that
those who were not so fortunate yesterday
soon will be given outing.

Says Allies Would Have Lost U |D ffl]~M

Declaring that the allies recognize LJjjpflrfla
the fact that the United States is to be M3m
the decisive factor in ihe world struggle
now in progress and expressing yB ml Hi
his faith in the ability and spirit of r\Jjn Jjg y||
the American soldier, John MasefieM, /
poet, author, world traveler and 15m- 1 *
Ihsh K-holar, delighted two large vj- A/tfTffl MO
d'? nces of soldiers at Camp Greene on BrWlB 1M.
Monday night. Mr. Masefield, who ?s flfffnTmB
recognized the world over as a man " Tj
of letters, included this camp In the
list of those which he will visit during I IpOqI
a brief stay in the United Stutes. n^Tvl
The speaker has been very close to mud
the heart of the military operations II |l
on the western front in France during H III
the entire period of the war. and his jR J jW
services as aji interpreter to the Eng- QVX Ljl
lish people of the munifold elements U /dm
involved have been invaluable. lie | tXrjH
has been in the trenches himself and
for days together has stayed in a sec- V^/||IK9
tor that was under the hottest shell FnlilJIWj
The two addresses of the speaker K^||Lyr^9
Were delivered in "Y" buildings 104
and 105. He was heard by large audi- HkRI UM
puts that showed their approval by
heaity applause. The speaker gave a IHninl
groat many interesting reminiscences If U
of the actual fighting zone, and gave II In
his hearers a good idea of the condit.ons
which they will meet with when I M*Wll V*
they get across. B
One of the most striking features of ITVk
both speeches was the prophecy that
Kngland was to become a great demo- SnU| I
crane commonwealth as a result of H IrTjn jl
the war. Mr. Masefleld, who is fully H D U B
conversant with conditions in Kngland, H UK M H /
recited instance after instance where Uh. U/{ |/| UH
I men who came from the most ordinary flfe M
jvalks of life have been lifted to high |j| Rn W 19
j position by reason of the courage and lU W/ 111 u
] the ability which they have manifest- I HI
j ed during the war. , These men. who
| will be heroes in the eyes of the people gjt VS
! and who have been accustomed to -m
I command, are going to find a place XSjVff V
j for themselves in u new society that
will be compelled to yield to the new jjfflrHMEl
state of affairs.
Mr; Maselield took occasion to ans- mj
wer the lies htat have been circulated ^1^#/
by Germany and her friends, and this WJj?3r/s~
he did in a most complete and satis- Kw
! fying manner. He gave figures to IW MJ.
i show that England has made tremend- %
ous sacrifices, and that she has done iy7n )
her full part in the carrying of the
burden imposed by the war. lie said rf TL ^T\
that already more than 2.500,000
Englishmen have been killed and f
wounded. Answering the charge that JF." o^lI
England has put the burden on her /p'7j&jm*
colonial possessions, the speaker d?*clared
that there are 10 English sol- IrafT I
diers for every colonial soldier engaged
in the war. IfflBflfJlLj #
Again Camp Greene scores in the ^ f
matter of health. For the week end- V * 4
ing May 20, tjie sick rate among the m L.
soldiers stationed at this camp was T
only 10.5 a 1,000. This is the third
best showing among the entire num- 1
ber of military camps and canton- lM
ments in the United States. Camp /
Sheridan led the list, with a sick rate i J
of only 8.1 per cent, while Camp Lagnn
led Camp Greene by one-tenth
j of one per cent. Carap Travis had
the worst record, 49.1.
The really fine record which Camp
in maintaining every week is
a distinct cause for congratulation. BJM|
Both the government and the soldiers MfeMpy i
stationed at this camp must become
more and more impressed with the
healthful locality in which this camp WB II
is located. Ill I
