aa any In Krauce today. It la the
Hlity-thlrd Infantry. "Flu" haa not
made a dent In thla organlieailon.
The enrollment of 1,000 dr more re

ness. Her la an outfit ready to go
right over the lop tomorrow and
meet any regiment the Kalaer hai In
hie army. It la eaay to explain thla.
To begin with the last proposition
tint that of the newly-enrolled re
crulta. These are mrni who were
carefully picked. Mn of recent
drafta not up to the requirement for
flxhtjng organization were held In
the Depot tlrlgade for development.
Many of the Juet-2 1 men were tak
en Into thla regiment. The bark
bone of the organization waa the ojd
Slity-thlrd and the old Twelfth In
farttry. Thus many of the noncom
missioned officer have aeon service
In Mi'ilio. Muny are runchmuii of
the Kar Went who enllited when war
waa declared and who have yearned
day by day to go to France, and each
day have become more proficient aa
flghtnra, more eager for the fray.
Thla regiment haa a band that la
aald to be the bent now In the United

tary authorities might feel Ilka brav
ing the "flu" thla organization could
give any city a parade that would

The following letter wag received
recently from Earl H. Brent, who ha
been in active service over there for
Just a few lines to let you know
that I am among the living and get
ting along O. K.
I am again on the front and I ex
pect to put in another winter close up
and of course all of the boys fight for
a chance to be here where things are
lively. They like that much better
than they do being back further.
When I pick out what machines
and driver that I think will carry on
the business assigned me it 1 a try
ing moment, oiten 11 is lmpossiDie
to take all of them and some ot the
driver are disappointed and feel as
though they have not been given a
square deal, so that is the feeling that
exists among our boy In France.
All my drivers have been running
on roads that were plainly visible to
the German and not one even hinted
about the danger when crossing those
open place that they had to cros ten
or twelve time a day.
Thing have changed since early
yesterday morning, and now I do not
know one of the roads we are using
that are In view of the enemy, for at
one o'clock yesterday the German
tried to cross our front line and a a
result our boys opened up and are
Btill going, and the prisoner passed
here all day yesterday and last night
until I went to sleep I could hear
them tramping through the mud on
their way to the prison camps behind
the lines, how many thousands I can
not say but probably by thla time you
have the full report. I am sorry
that I cannot send you some souve
nirs for your collection. If I could.
I would be able to send you some
fine German arms, and knives, belts,
as well a anything else they, are
I have seen and heard the French
barrage Ore for day and seems to me
that their fire Is more intensive than
our flrS, but It must not be go effect
ive. I asked one of our military offi
cers, why it was and he said that
when the Bosche knew that, it was the
Americans firing at them they gave
little resistance and said that not
once did they use all our guns as it
was not necessary, and when the
boys go over .the top it is hard to
find the enemy's Infantry which has
fled for their lives and given up
whole companies at a time.
Yesterday I was standing at one ot
the receiving stations when they
were searching the prisoners for
hidden weapons, etc., and one young
prisoner who could speak English
said that he was worn out fighting
and could hardly stand up in the mud
any longer, and that his officer hit
him across the face and caused a
large wound. Which goeg to show
that they do not want to stand up
against the American and the Canad
ian soldiers, but would rather be
taken prisoner where they get fair
treatment and white bread to eat.
I saw a piece ot their bread which
some of them were gnawing at, and
it 1 a crime that a human being must
exist on such black and dirty food.
Yesterday morning at daylight, al
though raining and the wind blowing.
the air was alive with hundred ot
American plane. And yesterday
when tne Germans should have been
the thickest I never saw one ot them.
which again showB that we hold the
supremacy of the air, and when they
figure on winning this war is more
than I am able to figure out, after be
ing here for a year.
In order to try and win a point,
they have used our own or the French
markings on their planes, uesd allied
uniforms and even used the Red
Cross insignia on their machine gun
ners, used prisoners to dig front line
trenches where they would be in great
danger from the fire of probably their
own brothers, and what have they ac
complished a deep hatred which is
embedded in the mind of all oar sol
diers who are fighting them, and
when it comes to a chance and the
allies with this thought burning deep
into their ery souls, and the remem
brance ot small children with their
hands cut off by German swords and
women and girls who-have been tak
en away by the retreating Huns, of
dastardly cowards who know every
crime, then you will begin to under
stand that when we are to make a
charge ot one mile, often our troops
penetrate four or five miles before
they can be stopped, and Is it any
wonder that a handful of .our boys
killed and captured the pride of Ger
many's army, the Prussian Guards.
Can you imagine what has been
done by the United States in one and
a half years of war, when I tell you
that I have seen truck train that
took from one to four hours to pass,
to . gay nothing of the automobiles
and ot the gas, oil and tires that it
takes to keep these masses going 24
hour a day, and to say nothing of
the motorcycles by the thousands.
And even that does not comprise our
transport service. We have thous
and of horses, wagons, tractors,
caterpillers and tanks, and planes.
From thla you can draw your own
ooclusions of the wonderful work
that' has been accomplished by our
I am sorry that I cannot write you
more at thia time and hope that this
letter will find you and the wife and
I want to thank you tor the photos
that you aent me, and also tor your

transport of the ISth Company, 20th
Engineers. A. E. F., which will be my

you can read thia without an inter
preter, and that you will give my
