Clara Clemens Gabrilowitsch Aids Artists' War Service.

Clara Clemens Gabrilowitsch has turned over Stormfield, the home of Mark Twain at Redding, Conn., as a convalescent home in charge of the Artists' War Service League, recently incorporated under the laws of the State of New York. The objects of this organization are similar to those of the American Friends of Musicians in France, except that it proposes to aid men of all the artistic professions in the service and their dependents, instead of confining itself to musicians alone.

An honorary committee named for the purpose of stimulating membership now includes Rudyard Kipling, representing literature; Enrico Caruso, music; Daniel C. French, sculpture, and John Drew, representing the drama. J. F. D. Lanier will be Treasurer and Winslow, Lanier & Co. will act as bankers for the fund raised by the league.
