That's a question frequently heard among American servicemen stationed in the New Hebrides Islands, where the American Red Cross has established a chain of outdoor "theaters" for Uncle Sam's soldiers, sailors and marines. One of the many Red Cross services provided for American fighting men, the "chain" con- sits of eight motion picture projectors, each of which is sent to a diferent island outpost each night of the week. There, before:screens set.up under waving coconut palms, a strange .conglomeration of United States servicemen, Melanesian and Tonkinese natives gather to see Hollywood productions. Films are obtained by Karl P. Reiser, of Toledo, O., American Red Cross field director in the Free French possessions, on frequent trips to Australia. From personal experience, Reiser has found that musical comedy features, especially those starring Ginger Rogers or Bing Crosby, are most popular with his audiences. Reiser, ivho with Assistant Field Directors Stanford Oksness, of Bemidji, Minn., and Harry Corwin, Lima, Ohio, has co-ordinated recreational activities in the New Hebrides, does not confine his activities to operation of the theaters. On arecent trip to Australia he collected 19 tons oE American Red Cross materials, including 24 dual-wave radio sets, two phonographs, and 120 recordings. Other items in his asorted cargo were two dozen table tennis sets, thousands of cigarets, hundreds of books and magazines, chewing gum, razor blades, toothpaste, and lumber for a Red Cross recreation hut. --o-Buy War Savings Bonds and Stamps from your Globe-Gazette carrier boy.

C.--With needles as their only weapons, more than 2,000,000 American women today are devoting what once were leisure hours to aiding the nation's war effort. Members of the American Red Cross Production Corps, largest of all Red Cross volunteer services, they are sewing and knitting for the armed forces and U. S. allies abroad. A priority, on large quantities of wool was given the Red Cross this year to continue its program of making knitted garments requested by.the army and navy and made to their specifications. Sea boots, sweaters, gloves, mufflers, rifle mitts and socks' are but a few of the wool garments made for American servicemen and distributed to them on all fighting fronts. Surgical dressings by the hundred thousands also are turned out by Red Cross volunteers, who make between 80 and 90 per cent of all surgical dressings needed by the army. Gauze for them is provided by the war department. Hundreds of sewing machines are humming in Red Cross chapters throughout the country, turning out bathrobes, pajamas, hot- water bags, cushions, pneumonia To Marry in West jackets and "Housewives," o t h e r sewing clothing, cases for service men, are another product of the Red Cross volunteers. Kit bags are assembled and given to each man going overseas. At the request of the war department cigarets, pencils, envelopes, paper, shoe laces, chewing gum, soap, 'playing cards and sewing cases are packed in bags with a greeting card from the local chapter. A pocket size edition of a detective or humorous story, as well as razor blades and shoe laces, also are enclosed. Many chapters M R. AND MRS.

DENTAL RECORDS have received enthusiastic letters SET BY 2 GRADES ;Â· A NICHOLS GREEN "Where the Good Shoes Come From" of thanks f'om the men overseas. Ingenuity is not lacking in sidestepping shortages of material. Vests have, been made from old felt hats as wind breakers for aviators. In one city the local furriers work after hours piecing together left-over bits oÂ£ fur into vests which are donated to the Red Cross and sent to service men abroad. Some of the production \vorkers have made gloves out of string, children's slippers from pieces of towel, have knitted hospital blankets, and made blackout curtains. Mending centers have been set up near army camps so that the service men will not have to be bothered with darning their own socks. The latest and perhaps one of the most important jobs of the Red Cross Production Corps is the packing of seamen's kit bags. These are virtual life savers, carried on ships for the men rescued at sea. In the 3,735 Red Cross chapters in the country the women of the production corps are working tirelessly to keep up with army and navy requests for wool clothing, and for surgical dressings used in every theater of war--front-line fighters on. the home front.
