Lewis R. Lewis (on reader’s left), the Army International footballer, is a corporal in the 2nd Sportmen’s Battalion, and has been appointed captain of the football club of the battalion. With him in the picture is Sergt. Adams, of the same battalion, who played for Fulham this year, and was formerly captain of Southend United.

Our attention having been called to the fact that there is an impression in America that this hotel has been taken over by the Red Cross Society, we would take the earliest opportunity to inform you that such is not the case.

The hotel is open to receive visitors as usual. Beyond the fact that certain of the public banqueting rooms are being used for the purpose of recruiting for the Sportsman’s Battalion, there is no interference with the usual course of business.

     Yours faithfully,
          F. M. Hornsby, Manager.
