War T partment Informs Relatives of Serious Injuries Re

Word has been received by Mrs.

Bleeding Thumbs Result
of Women's War Work
Somebody ought to write a poem
and call it "The Ballad of the Blood
ing Thumbs." It should be dedi
cated to the volunteer workers In the
recent Belgian clothing campaign
launched here. When a reporter
suggested this to a sparkle-eyed girl
who was nursing a bandaged finger,
she gazed at him resentfully. "It's
just like you men to be tensing us
after we've done your work! Hero
we've taken your places when you
refused to volunteer to nail boxes
and help pack, and then, when wo
hit our thumbs with the hammer,
you laugh! It's beastly of you!"
When men didn't offer their serv
ices for the packing and shipping of
the boxes, the women tackled the lob
themselves. With the (assistance of
soldiers from the various nearby gov
ernmental operations the work is
now being accomplished. While the
women were busily hammering nails
into a huge package box cover yes
terday morning, an aged man Came
walking *>v. "Why 'don't you get
men to (T.'> that work," ho queried.
"We asked tor men and they didn't
j, respond." he was told. "Then we
waded into the work ourselves. And
workers tell a tale of the old man's
taking the hammer and nails. "He
helped us himself," chortled a work
er gleefully as she looked accusingly
at the unoffending reporter.

Gerard Sees Revolt in
Germany When War Ends
San Francisco, Oct. 2. —Sounding
a keynote of "no negotiation with
out occupation," James" W. Gerard,
ex-United States ambassador to Ger
many, said in an address yesterday
there must be no thought of peace
until troops of the Entente have
forced their way into German ter
ritory. Mr. Gerard was speaking for
the Fourth Liberty Loan. He went
"Tho United States and her Al
lies must force their way well into
enomy territory, despite all attempts
at peace, and must keep on going
until Germany.bows to their will."
Mr. Gerard predicted a revolution
in Germany after the war "that will
make the French revolution look
like a Sunday school picnic."
"There is no one in Germany to
start a revolution," he said. "But the
returning soldiery will demand an
accounting, and having so lately
emerged from savagery, they will
strike hard."
