By Edna Brooks 




A fifth volume, "The Khaki Girls in Camp; or, Volunteers in the Land Army" was advertised at the end of volume #4 but appears to be a phantom title.

'When Uncle Sam sent forth the ringing call, "I need you!" it was not alone his strong young sons who responded. All over the United States capable American Girls stood ready to offer their services to their country. How two young girls donned the khaki and made good in the Motor Corps, an organization for women developed by the Great War, forms a series of stories of signal novelty and vivid interest and action.'
-- from a Cupples & Leon advertisement

Next day they go together to the Motor Corps headquarters and in due time are accepted and become members of the Corps, in the service of the United States.

Incidentally they are instrumental in rendering valuable service to the United States government by discovering and running down a secret organization of its enemies." -- 1918. Cupples & Leon.
