A palatial home at Newport will be exchanged for a hospital tent on the battlefield if the government accepts the proffered services of Mrs. James J. Brown, wife of the Denver and Newport millionaire.
She will equip her own hospital outfit if she goes to the front. Mrs. Brown has had experience in nursing women and children in the coal mine regions of Colorado and as a Titanic survivor she helped to nurse the sufferers of that ill-fated ship.
