I don't think I've ever had such polished shoes, such orderly, shelves and so much service. Taking care of myself for so many years, I've found it difficult to let my sweeper 'and be~arer do all the work. However, I'rh learning and when the' hot season cofnes, I suppose I'll become as- lethargic as all the Indianst "Irving as I do-in the nurses quarters I eat in the medical officers mess hall.'Food has been very: good.although at times I'd.like to think oi G. I. cooks m the kitchen for these: Indians. have' no; idea oi sanitatipn. There are 2 G. I. ser-' geantsjn. charge of the mess and they really -have a. job. Both speak. Hindustani rather well, necessity Urdu is the language-taught the British military, but. the average villager has a.tongue of his own, riot really a language, probably a vocabulary of 150 .words which he combines in different ways and so jabbers- away. I've begun to learn a-little and now I can make my sweeper understand, he "doesn't speak any English. Fortunate for me my bearer is rather an educated-chap and clean in his ap- pearence. "This camp was built by the British as a prisoner of war camp. Later the Americans took over and it became one of the largest Chl- aese \ training posts in India. Therefore, the population is largely Chinese so the American population in the hospital is small. Since this is no longer the C. B. I. area, most Hkely the post will once again be turned over to the British. - . . . ; "My job has been interesting. When I arrived the last of October, it was some time since they had had Red Cross.. There'was-much feeling to overcome, but I feel that once again the Red Cross is oh top for I've tried hard to make,myself active in.'. jvhateyer, task they've asked, of me.'I immediately joined forces'with the chaplain and have played, f of' services 2 and 3 each Sunday. It is strange, but they do nbt'have any pianists on the:post, so I| was most, welcome. . : · . ·-. "Recently Lily Pons and 1 Andre were here. It was a .very'; cold night, but. Lily, regardless'"of the weather and the fact that she had been.ill.for 9 "days at Calcutta, sang 5 . numbers.. Her voice was glorious and she was charming.' Believe me she made a real hit with every G. I. , My C. O. has been very co-operative. Soon after arriving, he gave me a good size building for the Red Cross recreation room. It is now -a very busy spot. One room has comfortable furniture, writing desks, soft lights, hooks, magazines, everything to make a cozy spot to relax. The other room has a workshop corner where leather craft has proved most popular, a kitchen for afternoon cpffee parties and a section for games. A small piano from .the states arrived Wednesday and I've'had a grand time. A small organ is better than nothing, but oh, what fun to get my hands on a good piano." Mrs. R. .D. Koehler,, a. recent residen^ 'of' Mason City 'was a 'guest of Mrs. Rose Osbbme. The'.next meeting 'will be Tuesday noon, Jan. 30. . '.

Siberia to Alaska makes us neighbors to the Russians and as neighbors, it is time for us to know something about each other. The speaker compared the United .States and Russia pointing out that as we have progressed west, they have progressed east, both peoples moving toward the Pacific. "They are expansive as we are expansive,'' she said.

They dream of a tomorrow as we do." ' : .'Sketching briefly the ; history of Russia under the tsars, Miss Jones said that 85 to 90 per cent of;the Russians ' were illiterate peasants hut like oriental people, they were intelligent men and women. -'They are-like most people who ' have been held down," she said. 'iThey blow up 'and do impulsive and dreadful things." Miss Jones said that the Russian likes to brag as does the American and commented on the pride of the Russians in their engineer ing achievements, on -the h i g h type of reading done by the Hus sians today and on the inceritiv to build a greater country will- everyone feeling that part of th building must be done by him self.' "We have built up so much prejudice against Russia that we have never taken time to understand the Russians. Revolutions are terrible--our revolution was too, but we have built up a glamor around it. · ' . ' .,, "When you study Russian art and literature you see the revolution coming. When the Japs defeated Russia in 1905 and when 'the Russians forced the tsar to accept a parliament in 1906, you see the 'revolution haying a good start-. Few realize how. corrupt the government was from .1914 to 1918. We don't realize how much the Russians suffered during 'the war. - W h e n the government crumpled, Lenin, Trotsky and Stalin took over. There were 11 nations invading Russia at the close of the war to put down the revolution. "The revolutionists. ' were no more .ruthless than the tsars had been. A' small group at the top organized the revolution. T h e peasant was backward and didn't want to change and from 6 to 8 million Russians went down opposing Lenin. I have not heard of 6 to 8 million Germans dying opposing Hitler. "At the time of the Versailles treaty, Russia was heaving a revolution and Russia was left .out oi the treaty. The allies didn't know how to deal with Germany and both Russia and Germany, were but of good society. When it turns fb foreign affairs, Russia remains suspicious of the other powers." - I n concluding h e r talk, M i s s Jones commented on the place o woman in Russian society a n d said that part of the great advance in Russia is because the women have gone into everything the men cari-do. From 60 to 85 pe cent of the Russian doctors are women. The Russians think it i funny that a woman should have to choose 'between a career, arid a family. In Russia she can hav both. V.F.W. A.
