Photograph by H. T. Ellis, Paris A TRIBUTE TO A SLEEPING HERO: IN THE- NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC SOCIETY WARDS National Geographic Society Wards in the American Military Hospital No. 1, Neuilly, France PICTURE TO YOURSELIr the feeling of one of our fellow-members or his boy upon being brought into this hospital and placed in a comfortable bed provided for him by his own friends. Can you imagine a better tonic or a more comforting thought to a sick or wounded man than the realization that he is almost at home? Thousands of members of the National Geographic Society and the sons of a great many more have answered our country's call to arms. Numbers have already gone to France, and others will follow shortly to place the Stars and Stripes side by side with the battle standards of our allies in this titanic struggle for freedom and everlasting peace. There will be no overhead expense in the handling of the National Geographic Society's fund, and every dollar will be expended for equipment and maintenance of the ward. No matter how small or how large your subscription, it will be welcome and proper acknowledgment made. For particulars read "A Day in the Geo graphic Wards," by Carol Corey, in the July issue of the Geographic. ----------- (CUT HERE) ------------ GILBERT GROSVENOR, Chairman, National Geographic Society Ward Fund, 16th and M Streets N.
