Janesville Settlement (11 Jul 1918)

There will be a Red Cross and pie social at the Janesville Settlement school house, Wednesday evening, July 17, given by the J. Settlement auxiliary. There will also be ice cream cones. All the proceeds will go to the Red Cross. This affair is also a farewell party, given in honor of John Moorhead and the Globe boys who will leave July 22 to join the colors. Every body come and show the boys that you are all willing to work for them while they fight for us. Each lady bring a pie.

David Moorhead left Saturday for the Columbus, Ohio, training camp. We were all sorry to see him go. We feel that we have lost a young man who is very hard to replace. David is well liked by all who know him and his going so soon was a big disappointment to us all. May God protect him and bring him home safely.

Mrs. M.M. Bahl spent Friday afternoon with Mrs. Charles Churkey.

The small pox scare is over at last and is a relief to a good many.

You read about the British tanks and their great stunts in France, but you had ought to have seen the Ford with a lady driver from Christie jumping ditches in a hayfield in J.S. Sunday. The car was full of passengers and it is marvelous that no one was hurt.

Mr. and Mrs. Ed. Keefe drove to Veefkind the Fourth to spend the day with T.E. Emeling. A large picnic was given for the Red Cross by the Veefkind and Coles auxiliaries. Mrs. Keefe says it was wonderful the way these people worked for the Red Cross. It makes us feel that we have been idle long enough. The ladies will soon be knitting for our boys again.

Miss Lena Halle and sister, Helen, are home from the southern part of the state on a visit with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. Halle.
