Mrs. Harry Johntz, captain of 

the Friday squad and assistants

was busy today and many soldiers

and sailors went away feeling com-

forted by the attention given them

by the Red Cross ladies. One boy

who came in on the Limited said

he had nothing to eat since

noon yesterday. They entrained

late and did not stop anywhere

and his first chance was at the 

Canteen here. Over seventy were 

served this morning. Tonight the

boys will be served with home-made 

pies -- Mrs. Johntz having 

asked a number of friends to make

them for the Canteen. 

[Written in margin] Had 75 

men this

a. m.


we had 





the pie,

coffee & 

iced tea.

This Canteen work is very exciting.
