The winner of the prize for the "Best Drawing" will be announced later as the cliches have not all yet been made. You can be judging for yourself the merit of some of the entries that appear in this number, and I am sure you will agree that we are a very talented family.
A FEW REMARKS
In the continued absence of the editor, Mr. J. H. McFadden, Jr. who is convalescing at Biarritz, the Sub-Ed. finds it necessary to make a frantic appeal to the general public for support.
Have you forgotten the primary object of this modest sheet? Do you not realize that it is to keep you in touch with each other! Are you all deaf and dumb? Can you not see the benefit of this journal to future generations? You will not have enough of croix-de-guerres, even at five france per croix, to bequeath to all your children and grandchildren, and the citations may get misplaced. But think of the pride with which they can refer to the Files of "American Field Service Bulletins" preserved in the Great War Museum at Washington and say, that was my relative! He was in the Great War and he wrote that with one had while with the other he drove a Ford!
The Sub-Ed. has watched with pride and satisfaction the growth in size and brilliancy (hear! hear!) of the "Bulletin" during the past month but it was said "The Tarpeian rock is ever near the Capitole" and it would be disastrous to fall off the roof at Rue Raynouard.
Therefore, is Barkis willin' to do his part or not?
Will you all please say something, so that we can have a department headed "Roll Call" and put down a line, or even a word from each Section.
