The New York Evening World provides a long biography of Sister "Glory" Gloria Hancock, an American nurse from Asheville, who volunteered for the British Red Cross at the outset of the war. She has survived an acute influenza resulting from her exposure at the front, and has had to go an entire month without a change of clothes.
