DR. H. F. RUBEL IS KEPT BUSY AT A CAMP HOSPITAL
 

Lieutenant H. F. Rubel, who is in France with the Army, writes that he is constantly on the move and is very busy. Lieutenant Rubel, who formerly practiced his profession of medicine in LeMars and Struble, enlisted for service over a year ago and was appointed to a medical corps and went across. When he wrote he was working in a hospital in France. He says France, except in the devastated regions, appears exactly the same to him as it did when he visited there fifteen years ago.
