34 THE TARGET The Band much better but the unfortunate loss of Scott Elder, solo cornetist, handi- capped it. The band furnished the music on Lincoln ' s Birthday, and for the plays " Horatius at the Bridge, " " The Burg-lar, " " The Depot Lunch Coun- ter, " " The Last Rehearsal, " and also in the Junior Red Cross parade. It has entertained the Mothers ' Club too. Every Friday the band goes down to the Berkeley High School to prac- tice with the Berkeley School Band. This band of which our boys make a large part played in the Liberty Bond Parade and at the Junior Red Cross Pageant. Our band will ap- pear twice on the program of our annual concert and will give new se- lections — an overture, a march, a gallop and a serenade. THE PIANO CLUB.

36 THE TARGET ONE OF MANY Little Rence, in a ruined village " somewhere in France, " had seen her crippled father, her mother and two little sisters killed when their cottage fell above them, knocked to pieces by a shell as if it had been a house of blocks. With her aged gradmother and an aunt she fled to the fields, and spent a night of exposure and misery in a driving rain. Before morning the grand- mother was dead and the aunt died pneumonia soon afterwards. ' Renee herself, who had been slightly wounded, became very ill, and when the crisis of her sickness was over she still hovered on the verge of death. She was a dear little girl, and the nurses in the hospital, to which she had been taken were worried about her. But one day there was a distri- bution of gifts and comforts from America and Renee received a doll. It made anpther person of her; the brightness returned to her eyes, the smile to her lips, a flickering color to her thin little cheeks. " You are really better, Renee, " one of the nurses said to her the next day. " I believe that dolly is going to cure you; she is better than doctors or nurses. We shall be jealous. " " But it is quite natural, " explained Renee a little anxiously, for she did not wish to be thought ungrateful. " Everyone has been kind to me, but I did not belong to anyone any more. I thought I had no one in the world, no family at all, and behold! Here is my little daugh- ter! " LILLIE BAXTER. Lettuce raise cane and squash the Kaiser. THE LEAGUE OF MERCY. He was wounded on the battle field, Amid the shot and shell. His comrades fought on bravely, But many, like him, fell. The summer sun blazed pitiless!} ' , He was hot, his lips were parched. But no one saw the wounded man. As on and on they marched. But soon His ear detects a sound, He ' s carried from the field. Oh! with a Red Cross fine as ours, How can the Allies yield ? EVELYN KEEHNER. A FRENCH PLAY. A very amusing comedy " Les Deux Sourds " was given by the members of the high ninth French class. The several characters were so well interpreted that those in the audience who did not under- stand French could apprecite the humorous situations. Those who took part must feel well repaid for their efforts. The twenty dollars taken in will take care of another French orphan for eight months. There are now three orphans for whom the French classes are pro- viding. JUNIOR RED CROSS BENEFITS. The active interest in Junior Red Cross work among our students so far exceeded the funds available for material that plans were made to increase the sum in the treasury by using the dramatic ability of the school. The artistic and financial success of the play " Horatius at the
