London, September 4,—The work of moving all American wounded from British hoBpituls to American hospitals in Britain is progressing nicely. As the wounded art)' brought from France it is not always possible to turn them over at. once to the American Bed Cross. - But eveuutnlly they all reach an American Hospital, either here in London or somo beautiful spot in rural Jjhigland. Naturally this is more saUsfactory to thft men. They huvo their own countrymen about them, American nurses and American meals, with no material reminder that they are in a foreign country. All who had been moved from British hospitals told of tho excellent treatment they at received there, but re- joico*to be in eutlrely American surroundings, and said tho only thing they missed was visits from home- folks'. This system of visiting American wounded, as undertaken by the lied Cross Carp Committee, is 'being Improved and extended. This committee supplements the work of the Red Cross nurses, and takes tho place of the family visitor, coming in on stated days, bringing comforts and doing little sen-Ices. - When one little rebel announced he wasn't going to accept charity, I told him he would make his mother very sad If she woro visiting him and he called her kindnesses charity; that we American women wanted to take, as nearly as possible, tho places of their mothers and sui­ ters. Visited a Rebel. And this rebel, Herman Groeder, who was a sophomore In a Chicago medical school wb.en he went bwuy to war, told mo of the hundreds of dollars he has spent since be was wounded at Haiael on the Fourth <?f July. I was painfully, shocked ajid, urged him to tell mo why U was necessary and mentioned a lot of things. Among then) a phonograph that he bought >yUile.tia.b9»«ltal In France. And when he said he spent two 4oU»ra the day before for aix plmns, j up.d,«R Is a doctor and he hopes to practice with him tniChicago some day. When explaining his wound he said a large part of his thigh bone was shattered and tho doctors wero undecided lust what to do next. "Gee," he said, "if ray dad were only here; he'd know what to do In a minute." Most all the boys in the ward 1 have been visiting were in the Chicago unit that was in the Hamcl battle on tho Fourth of July. There is Domineck Duda, a Yank born in Germany, who has won my heart and the hearts of all the nurses and brother Yanks, with his delightful chatter and laughing blue eyes. His leg was fractured, by shrapnel and he had just suffered another operation tho day before, so I found him a bit pale, but happy in the prospect of getting a wheel chair that will como most any day now and then be will he able to get out of doore. (.till Thinks He's Lucky. Then there is Clifford Myers, Ph. D., University of Chicago. His left leg boa been amputated at tho knee. He insists he is lucky just the same, and after listening to all tho horrible details of his 'experieucce, 1 agreed with him. The shell that shattered his leg killed bis tyro comrades. He has quite a beard, iu fact It is a bearded ward. The boys are sent over from France sons everything, but the pajamas they wear, and it seems there have not been enough razors to go around. So Clifford, wuo just arrived, borrowed the razor I had (aken out to Allan H. Hess, who has a fractured jaw and will not be able to shave for some time. Allan, however, got something ho need,ed more, a pair ot brown canvas s-oes. I bad token them out for Walter areola, but they were too small for him, 1 had a few Chicago Poate to take Into the ward. They wero snatched up eargerly and the casualty lists scanned far familiar nautee. This particular hospital I have yls- .

Others tell of the launching in January and February this year, of a Bolshevik ipeace and socialistic propaganda against the .United Stalos, Kngland and France, at life direction ot the German intelligence service. Thl3 was at the very time that Scheldenann, the pbWerrul German socialist and world eoclalist apostle, was in communication wilh his Russian brothers, "regarding the destruction of the traces of'the party's busi­ ness'relations with the Imperial Government." The intelligence service required the Bolsheviki to seud to the allied countriea through neutral Europe, "coniradcB," ..iinder assumed names and with false neutral pass-, ports, to preach their .doctrine of disorganization and to carry on cam- I.ulgns of "counter revolution, sabotage looting etc." Another Scheme.
