Lucky for the Jerries they hoisted
the "white flag" two weeks too early
for. In Just about two .weeks more
the Yanks would have had the KaiBer
doing their "kitchln police."
The destruction along the battle
rront or .Northern France exceeded
all of our wildest dreams. For over
two weeks we wore fighting In and
around Verdun, the most famous city
of the war.- TIiIb city Is one mass of
ruins, not a building there but what
has been torn to pieces by German
ehells and In spite of the enormous
pressure placed against It by the
German army the slogan ' of the
French army stood: "They shall not
pass" and they didn't. The under
ground city of Verdun is wonderful
and the Roseburg fellows had the
privilege of visiting there and see
ing the most remarkable thing that
could ever be imagined. In that un
derground city there is room for 80,-
000 men and they have stored there
enough rations to last twenty years.
During every year of the war the
Germans shelled that city and the
days we spent there the Huns "were
dropping shells in the heart of the
ruins as big as "blacksmith shops.
Traffic at the front during the
drive Is immense- one' long contin
ual stream of wagons, motor trucks,
ambulances, artillery, and "dough
boys". At night not a light Is visable
and the trucks drive at breakneck
speed down the wonderful military
highways, pressing close upon the
heels of the retiring Hun.
' When a returned overseas soldier
speaks of "cooties" a broad grin usu
ally crosses the. faces of the by-stan-ders,
but is these same bystanders
could have had these little pests
clinging to their form for over three
months getting "three squares per",
they would not find so much amuse
ment In It. We had all brands, Qer
man, French, English and Yank and
would have willingly signed separate
peace witl. them at any time. It Is
a very common sight to see several
hundred soldiers sitting along a road
side. "reading" their undershirts.
And confidentially we must admit
that our cooties were with us up to
the time we passed through the
"de-cootie-izer" at Camp Dix, New
Jersey, last month.
It seems to be the popular craze
nowadays to stand on the sidewalks
and yell "hurrah for our heroes" as
the A. E. F. boys march down the
streets, but we all know that the real
credit belongs to those who fought
and died "over there" the boys that
paid the supreme sacrifice and
now have a wooden cross marking
their resting place In France. It is
a pitiful sight to walk over a fresh
battlefield and see hundreds of fel
lows in olive drab laying in death as
they fell in battle and one cannot
help thinking of the mothers of these
boys as you gaze upon the most hor
rible side of war. They have died
that we might live and their memory
should be kept sacred throughout the
years to come.
